Lots of people have siblings, and the ones that don't often want them.

I have a little brother. My friends like to say he's that he's adorable, or that they'd trade their twin or their older sibling for him. And sometimes, I feel the same way about their little siblings. 

The truth is: Every child is up and down. Literally. 

At first, when visiting, you may see them as cute, sweet, gentle, and... yeah.
But after hanging around them for long you kind of see their true colors.

Wow. I just described my brother in an example story.

I'm not saying all children are bad. I've actually met some youngsters who are very well-behaved.

Youngsters. What am I, 60?

On the other hand, I'm the older sister. Being the oldest has advantages and disadvantages. More of the latter.

  • I get to boss my brother around. It doesn't always work.
  • Every time my brother crys people assume it's my fault.
  • I don't get to go first often in board games.
  • This list is getting boring.
My foot is falling asleep.

I'll write more about this later. Or not, I don't know.

Color Sensational Lip Gloss by Maybelline

Yo. I'm back from vacation.

I'm going to do a review of Color Sensational Lip Gloss by Maybelline!

These two are the ones that I own. I'll be comparing them. The pink one is Punch of Pink and the orange is Coral Heat.

Keep in mind that how these glosses show up on MY lips may vary from the way they show up on your lips. I'm Indian/African - American, so my lips are darker.

Punch of Pink 

As you can see, this color tinted my lips with a slight pinkish color, nothing more. I wouldn't say I loved this color, but it's alright. 

Coral Heat

I liked Coral Heat better. The color was much brighter and suited my dark lips well. It actually looked the way I thought Punch of Pink was going to look. 

Pros Punch of Pink 

Good for people with dark lips who want a slight bit of color, but nothing too flashy.

Cons Punch of Pink 

Lip gloss tastes bad. It really is gross, so don't lick your lips to get it off.
Expensive. Unless you've got money to burn, I suggest buying only 1 to start with.

Pros Coral Heat

Color shows up nicely on lips, just the right amount of pinkish orange.

Cons Coral Heat

Expensive, and bad tasting. Also,it takes some rubbing into lips as it gets a little solid sometimes. This is with both glosses.


They're pretty expensive, ranging from $5 - $7 apiece. 


Yes. I purchased 2, and out of those two I loved 1. I didn't HATE the other, so, yes, I'd purchase again.


I'd really give this product a 4 out of 5.  It's a nice lip gloss, but it could be better. And better tasting. Or less expensive, both really.

John Hancock Tower View

This is a picture I took from the top of the John Hancock Tower. Looks like it belongs on a postcard, huh?
