Maybelline Creamy Mattes 'Touch of Spice' and 'Divine Wine' Review/Swatches

Maybelline Creamy Mattes Lipstick in 'Touch of Spice' and 'Divine Wine'

Maybelline has recently launched their collection "Color Sensational Creamy Mattes." I've heard it mentioned a lot on YouTube, but couldn't find them in drugstores till now! I picked up "Touch of Spice" and "Divine Wine" at Walgreens for their Buy One, Get One 50% Off deal. This makes them just about the same price as Walmart/Target.

Accutane Survival Products

Accutane Survival Products

I remember searching high and low to find products that would help combat the Accutane side effects. I used to find products people recommend through acne.org and heavily research them to ultimately be discouraged by the price and fact that I had to order it online. Through a lot of trial and error, I found products that worked beautifully and helped me get through it easier. Majority of them are drugstore products that are affordable too!

My Experience with Accutane (Isotretinoin)

My journey with Accutane was  full of dryness, blood work, and doctor visits, but I'd do it again if I had to. I remember what a tiring process it was to constantly be trying out prescription acne creams and antibiotics, all to get your hopes up and have it not work. Of course they say to patiently use it for a long period of time and not expect instant results, but for me, there was no results at all. I finally got a referral to a dermatologist from my primary and went in hopeful. The dermatologist examined my face and back and deemed that I indeed had moderate/ severe acne. We went over my long list of medications that I tried for acne in the past and he suggested Accutane immediately. I had done months of research beforehand and agreed. Of course we talked about side effects and what to expect, but he assured me it would be fine. My father had severe acne and had to take it as a teenager, so I was optimistic that this might be my route as well.
