The new barbie!

There is now a new barbie in the barbie team named Lammily. She is not only new but she is different. How? This barbie is not the typical tall and skinny doll. In fact, she resembles the average 19 year old female in terms of body shape and size.

Check out 2nd graders’ responses to this barbie:

“Second Graders React to Lammily and Other Fashion”

They like Lammily better than the other barbies because they feel like they can personally relate to her more AND relate her to people that they actually know. I believe that this is a positive change with the motto that “AVERAGE IS BEAUTIFUL”. This could improve the self-esteem of many young girls because it’s a change from the high beauty standards that surface our society .

Another fun change-this barbie is capably of literally doing more; like riding a toy horse, something that the other barbies cannot do.

Lamilly can be purchased at: Lamilly First Edition Doll for $25.



Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer vs. Urban Decay’s Original Primer Potion.

My skin type: Combination. (Oily T-Zone.)

I have always been a user or Urban Decay’s Original Primer and it has given me the results I want.

  • No oily lids.
  • No smudging.
  • No budging-long time wear.
  • And, enhanced eyeshadow/eyeliner color.

Ulta recently had a sale where the Too Faced Shadow Insurance was $10 instead of the normal $20. Yep, literally half the price. And, that’s when I decided to test out the product.

The results that I got:

  • No oily lids.
  • No smudging or budging.
  • And, of course enhanced eyeshadow/eyeliner color.

Both products gave me the results that I was seeking and left me satisfied. Now you might wonder what the difference between the two is.

Price: Both are $20.

Size: Too Faced-0.35 oz vs Urban Decay-0.37 oz, a little more product but not too much of a difference.

Texture: I  liked the texture of the Shadow Insurance better than the Primer Potion because it was more velvety. The Primer Potion has more of a thicker and harder to spread formula. They both leave my lids matte though. But, I would say that the Shadow Insurance is definitely easier to spread which actually makes me use less product.

Longevity:The Primer Potion improved shadow/liner color by just a little bit when several hours had passed, it was not a significant enough difference for me though-at all.

Preference: Either one because they both do about the same job but I definitely liked the texture of the Shadow Insurance better so, if I really had to pick-Too Faced Shadow Insurance but texture and the importance of texture is really a personal preference.

Both can be purchased at: Sephora, Ulta, Urban Decay, Too Faced and many more places.
