Maybelline Baby Lips and Great Lash Lots Of Lashes Review

First, I am required to tell you that I did receive these products for free from BzzAgent. If you don't know what BzzAgent is, basically you sign up for free and they invite you to campaigns based on your interests. The campaigns are sponsored by companies trying to get feedback on their new items. I've been able to try all kinds of cool stuff from cereal to makeup. 

Now onto the review!
First, the Baby Lips. 
(as always you can click any of these to view them up close)

I really enjoy these. There are six of them and I received five. The one I do not have is Grape Vine. Peppermint is green and it is clear, Cherry Me is the red and it gives a slight red tint, Pink Punch is pink and gives off a nice pink tint, Peach Kiss does not have much of a tint but it is the only one with shimmer, and Quenched is also clear but does not have much of a scent.

The packaging is cute, it is retro and I like that. There is quite a bit of balm in the packaging and you don't need to apply much for it to work. They all have SPF 20 and the website claims that after four weeks lips are renewed and reborn. I haven't used these for four weeks straight so I can't comment on that. These retail for between $2.99-4.99.

These work very well, they make my lips soft very quickly and they stay that way. I'm a little bit disappointed that they are only scented and not flavored. My favorite is the Cherry Me and the Peppermint, and I think I will be purchasing those again.

Ah, the Great Lash Lots Of Lashes mascara. I wish I had pictures of this on my eye, but we'll get to that. 
First, let me say that I love Maybelline mascaras. The Falsies is my holy grail and Colossal Volum and Lash Stiletto are fantastic. With that said, I have never been a Great Lash fan. This is no exception.
The brush is so awkward to use. It has very large rubber bristles that taper down into little tiny ones, and this makes it hard to maneuver around my eye. I have smaller eyes and this brush is just impossible to use on my long lashes. The formula is too wet and takes too long to dry, and it does not deliver length or volume. I was willing to give this another chance, however after the second day of use, I had a terrible allergic reaction to it and my eyes were red and swollen for over a week. Based on that alone plus the failures of this mascara to deliver, I would not recommend it or purchase it again.
This retails for $4-5. 

Anyone else tried these yet? What do you think?
