Just Fab: Countess Handbag Review

Countess from Just Fab 

Around November of last year I heard about Just Fab. I know most of you already know about it but if you don't it is a monthly subscription service and stylist create a boutique for you and you can shop what is in your boutique or anything on the site. If you decide to skip that month you aren't charged but if you don't skip and don't pick anything out you will be charged on your credit card but you will have a credit on your account so be forewarned that you will have to keep an eye on your account etc.

Anyways I found a cute bag back in November from Just Fab called the Countess

Adorable bow!

It is a satchel bag with a removable shoulder strap, it has two small bows on the front along with some contrast piping. I couldn't resist the bag. Seeing as I bought the beige color I decided to hold off using the bag until the spring time. Well it is spring now, and I wanted to mention the bag because it is terribly cute and I think a pretty good deal. The bag is made from PU and I can already tell the problem with the bag is going to be the black piping on the edges of the material. That type of piping tends to peel off. That being said the bag is so unique to what I could find out in my local stores and if you are like me and you have a lot of handbags having a few that aren't made the best should be just fine.

You can see where some of the pipping is coming off (this is the backside of the bag)
If you want a bag from Just Fab to be your everyday bag in my opinion the Countess won't hold up, I can't speak to the rest of the collection but I imagine that all of the bags are about the same quality. If you are like me and own ALOT of bags and rotating them often you shouldn't get too much wear from using a short period of time. I think the styles offered at Just Fab are worth the price. I have skipped every month since my first one, the next time I want a unique bag I will check out Just Fab before I hit my local mall though. 

Have you bought a bag from Just Fab? How was the quality?

Best of Spring Lipsticks!

As I am sure you are all aware bright lips are the biggest trend right now for spring. Over the past six or so months I have gotten really into lipsticks so I thought I would share my favorite bright/spring time ones.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain, from Top to Bottom is Rimmel London Moisture Renew, Maybelline Vivids, Maybelline Color Whisper, Revlon Lip Butter and Revlon Lip Butter
Firstly I love the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Cherish 015. I had been using Honey and wasn't all that impressed with it, it isn't quite the right tone for me, the other day I took Cherish out of my collection and opened it for the first time. It is the perfect color for spring I think.

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Coral Shimmer 120.This one isn't that bright but it can be built up to a brighter color. I really like the lipsticks I have tried from Rimmel and they are so inexpensive which is a bonus. 
L-R Rimmel London Moisture Renew Coral Shimmer, Maybelline Vivids Pink Pop, Maybelline Color Whisper Oh La Lilac,  Revlon Lip Butter Sweet Tart,Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain Charish

Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart 090. This is another one that you can build up to be really bright or more subtle if you choose.

Maybelline Color Whisper in Oh La Lilac 90. This is the only color I have in the lilac family and I love it. This color isn't the brightest (it isn't neon) but the tone of the lipstick is bright and can be built up for a bolder pay off.

Last is my favorite and the brightest of the bunch. Maybelline Vivids in Pink Pop 860. This is a great color if you like the Barbie pink tones. Best of all if you want something that only takes one swipe to get the color you want this does it. I have worn this as a bold statement and I have worn it really sheered out. Since I am still experimenting with bold lips I prefer to wear this lipstick sheer and with gloss on top.
L-R Revlon Lip Butter Sweet Tart, Maybelline Color Whispher Oh La Lilac, Maybelline Vivids Pink Pop, Rimmel London Moisture Renew Coral Shimmer, on the bottom is Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain Charish

Oh La Lilac and Pink Pop are my two favorites right now!

What are your favorite lipsticks for spring?
