BzzAgent Review: Maybelline Lots of Lashes and Baby Lips

Hello everyone! Today I am doing a review for BzzAgent on Maybelline’s Lots of Lashes Mascara ( a.k.a. LOL) and Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm with SPF 20. I became a BzzAgent in July of this year, and now I finally get to review a product! BzzAgent is a social marketing company that allows real consumers to try out new products, then share their opinions about the products with friends and family via reviews, Facebook posts, photos and videos, blog posts and more. I received 5 mascaras and 5 lip balms in my BzzKit to try and review. I was very surprised to see that I received a box full of goodies. I thought that I was only going to get 1 mascara and 1 lip balm!

Maybelline Great Lash: Lots of Lashes Mascara (LOL)
Very Black

“The exclusive Great Little Grabber gets to each and every lash with precision for lots of volume from corner to corner. Volume builds with each coat- no clumps, no mess.”

Introducing a Great Lash® innovation - Great Lash Lots of Lashes™

• America’s favorite mascara now gives the look of more lashes than ever, thanks to the exclusive Great Little Grabber Brush

• In just one swipe, the Grabber Brush easily reaches all lashes - even in the corners - for a multiplied lash look without the clumps
• The result? Great lashes with lots of impact and not a lot of work 

Great Little Grabber Brush

I do not like this mascara. It claims that it builds your lashes without clumping. My lashes started to clump on the first application, and they ended up looking like spider lashes. The volume that it gave was very disappointing. I gave mascaras to my mom and 2 of my sisters and only one of them actually liked this mascara. She said that she didn't have a problems with it clumping at all. The only thing that I liked about this mascara was the heart shaped “Great Little Grabber” brush applicator. It’s great for getting to those hard to reach lashes. I give Maybelline's Lots of Lashes Mascara 1 out of 5 stars.

Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm with SPF 20
Cherry Me, Quenched, Peach Kiss, Peppermint, Pink Punch
• Visibly renewed lips and 8-hr hydration
• The secret: Exclusive lip renew formula with SPF 20
• Protects and moisturizes lips for a full 8 hours
• After 4 weeks, lips are visibly renewed and reborn
• 6 varieties: Quenched, Peppermint, Cherry Me, Grape Vine, Pink Punch, and Peach Kiss

Pink Punch
I love the bright packaging for the Baby Lips lip balm. The colors are very eye-catching.  I usually have allergic reactions to lip products with SPF in them, but I didn’t have a problem with this. I received  5 lip balms, but I only tried the Pink Punch balm because I gave the other 4 to my mom and 3 of my sisters. I did get a chance to smell all of them and they smelled great.  The Pink Punch flavored lip balm leaves a nice pink tint that would be suitable for all skin tones. Baby Lips leaves my lips feeling so soft. My only con is that it didn't give me 8 hours of hydration. I give Maybelline's Baby Lips 4 out of 5 stars.

The Face Shop Black Head EX Nose Clay Mask Review

"The Face Shop Black Head EX Nose Clay Mask is a  peel off mask that is designed for deep cleansing and dissolves black heads. Contains Mulberry, Coix Seed, and Black Rice Extracts, which has anti-aging properties, leaving skin shining with a healthy glow, youthful, and supple." -Sasa

  • 50g
  • Made in Korea

  1. Apply a thick layer. It won't work it you apply a thin layer.
  2. Let it dry completely. It should take 10-15 minutes to dry.
  3. Peel off.
  4. Rinse with water.
  5. Use a pore tightening toner afterwards.
Eww :)

★ Scent? It's either floral or fruity. I can't tell :)

★ Packaging? It's simple and basic. It's a pretty small tube.

★ Consistency? Thick and sticky. 

★ Skin Type? For all skin types.

★ Will it hurt? It hurt me^^

★ Repurchase? Yes

Free samples: Tony Moly No.1 Booster Serum/ Essence & Premium Zen Concentrate Serum

I purchased this mask on eBay for around $4. It came with the three samples above.  I think that this mask does a great job at removing sebum build up. I put on a thin layer the first time I used it, and it hurt like CRAZY when I peeled it off. Make sure you apply a thick layer! Overall, I think that this is a great mask and I would purchase it again.

Rimmel London Extra Super Lash Review

Extra Super Lash Mascara

"Builds lashes from natural to dramatic by thickening and lengthening lashes coat after coat."
  • Builds lashes from natural to full
  • Intense lash color
  • Non-clumping coat after coat
  • Ophthalmologically tested
  • Get an eye opening experience
  • Separates and defines lashes coat after coat
  • Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers

★ Scent? Not too strong.

 Consistency? Thick but not too thick.

★ Volume? It does a great job at making my lashes fuller.

★ Clumps? It clumped up on a few of my lashes but it's tolerable.

★ Price? $2-4

★ Repurchase? Yes


I think that Rimmel's Extra Super Lash Mascara is a pretty good mascara at an affordable price. I got it for $1.99 plus tax with a $2 off coupon a while back. I love that it makes my naturally curly lashes look fuller. It does clump up, but it's not as bad as the other mascaras that I have tried. Somedays it clumped & other days it was fine. Weird? I know. I haven't had any problems with it flaking off at the end of the day. I give this mascara 3.7 out of 5 stars.

Torani Flavored Syrup Review

Hello! Today I'm doing a review on Torani Flavored Syrups. I received 2 flavors, Sugar Free Pumpkin Pie & Classic Hazelnut, from

About Torani:

"Since 1925, family-owned Torani has been crafting great tasting flavored syrups that coffeehouses use to make their flavored drinks taste so delicious. With over 120 flavors in regular and sugar free varieties, Torani flavored syrups are perfect for flavored lattes, mochas, coffees, cocoas, Italian sodas, teas, lemonades, cocktails and smoothies. Coffeehouse professionals choose Torani flavors because they are expertly crafted and made with the highest quality ingredients, like natural flavors and pure cane sugar. The sugar free flavors have no calories and are sweetened with Splenda. Now, Torani Flavored Syrups are widely available at retail so you can easily create authentic coffeehouse quality drinks at home."

Torani Sugar Free Pumpkin Pie Syrup

Pumkin Pie flavored waffles
I'm not fond of the Torani Sugar Free Pumkin Pie Syrup nor am I fond of the aftertaste that Splenda has. I had a big breakfast with my family on November 5th. 16 people were there including myself! I brought both the pumkin pie syrup and the hazelnut syrup for them to try out. The pumkin pie syrup was only touched by me. I then decided to try out recipes using this syrup. The one recipe that I really enjoyed was pumpkin pie flavored waffles. You just mix the pancake batter like you normally would and add in some Torani Pumpkin Pie Syrup. This syrup really does taste like pumpkin pie, but I think that I would have enjoyed this flavor if it was the regular version.

Torani Classic Hazelnut Syrup

Hazelnut Hot Chocolate
My family and I really enjoyed the Torani Classic Hazelnut Syrup. It has just the right amount of hazelnut flavor as well as the right amount of sugar. The bottle is half way gone! I've used this syrup in coffee, teas, steamers, and hot chocolate. For the recipe above I just followed the instructions on the hot chocolate packet and poured in the Torani Hazelnut Syrup. I topped it off with whipped cream and chocolate truffle shavings. I recommend the Torani Hazelnut Syrup over their Sugar Free Pumpkin Pie Syrup.
