I will start this review by stating I do not wear a lot of makeup. Not that I don’t like it, but rather…I usually don’t have a clue with what I am doing. So I avoid it. However, MGS accessories offered me to try their cruelty-free Liquid Lipsticks, and I thought I would give them a try.

I got the lipsticks in 3 different colors– Saucy, Peachy, & Natural.

They are relatively easy to apply– a soft tip brush allows for easy application without smearing it below the vermillion border (aka your lip line). My complaint with other traditional lipsticks is I have thin lips and found it hard to apply without getting it on my skin — not the case with these.

The lipstick has a creamy consistency that dries rather quickly. I found it could feel a tiny bit dry, which is the nature of a Matte lipstick, and I wish it came with a gloss I could apply after or a clear lip balm.

The Peachy was…not my color. Too light for my complexion, and a little too, well, peachy in color for me. I found it to have a little too much of an orange hue. However, I am sure it would look great on other individuals, this one was just not for me.

The Natural was a gorgeous color. I wore it to work one day with very minimal eye makeup and got a lot of compliments on it. It stayed on well throughout the day and did not flake off. I did reapply 2-3 times (I eat and drink a lot!) but I was always worried it would flake off and it didn’t! However, it was definitely darker than I thought it would be, and the name decieved me a bit as “Natural”. I was expecting it to be more muted in color, but instead was a nice deep magenta almost.

Lastly, the Saucy, which was a really nice pop of color. A rich red, I think would pair well with a little black dress or something more for a night out in the town.

Overall, I like these! While the Peachy wasn’t my color, it doesn’t mean it isn’t YOUR color. What I loved also about these is the minimal ingredients (plant pigment, jojoba oil, vitamin E…etc) and they are CRUELTY Free! I have very sensitive skin and I did not have any reaction. A WIN for me.

Always looking for more ways to incorporate veggies into my diet, I jumped at the opportunity to try Mozaics Organic chips, made with both potatoes and other fun veggies!

I was sent the BBQ and Sea salt variety — which just happen to be my 2 favorite flavor of chips. I will admit, I am not a big snacker with chips only because they are often fatty, greasy and offer little to no satiety. However, these chips have some fiber and protein, are organic, kosher, gluten free, are lower in fat and the first ingredient? Peas!!! They are also made with black beans and potatoes.

What’s fun about these chips is you can actually see the peas – there are tiny green flakes in the chips which I am assuming would be the peas.

They are both crunchy, air popped and non-greasy. There will be no wiping your greasy hand on your shirt with these chips ( I know you do it)! I wouldn’t have known they were made with peas (by flavor) unless you told me. They taste like a combination of a soy chip, a rice cake and a potato chip all in one!

1 oz (23 chips or so) is roughly 100-110 calories, 3 grams of fat, 19 grams of carbohydrate, 3-4 grams of fiber, 3-4 grams of protein. Not bad for a snack!

The BBQ variety has a slightly sweet, almost honey BBQ flavor to it. It’s not spicy nor too overpowering, but a nice mild BBQ flavor. Not too salty either, which I like. Just the right amount of flavor. 4 stars

The Sea Salt variety has a bit more of a predominant pea/edamame type flavor. I wish actually they were a tad bit more salty — but still good flavor. They were a tad on the dry side though- make sure you have a drink nearby. These are more on the bland side, and I wish they had just something else to make them pop. 3 stars

Overall, not bad, I like these! My only complaint is they are pretty fragile — I believe half my bag was broken into crumbs that resembled rice cakes once I received them in the mail. But I suppose that’s more of a packaging concern than a chip concern. Give these a try and let me know how you like them!
