App Review: RunKeeper

Here is a screenshot of the GPS/workout page of the app.
   Recently I have been getting more into health and fitness and one app that has been helping me a lot is RunKeeper.  I generally use it when I run or walk with my dog/friends, but there are plenty of forms of exercise that can be tracked and documented with this app.  You can track running, walking, biking, yoga, and a ton of other exercises from their workout list.  This app counts calories burned, miles traveled, altitude, rate at which you are traveling, and much more.  
   In addition to that, the app comes with free workout plans that tell you which workouts to do on which day to reach a certain goal.  For example, if you want to run a 5k, the app tells you exactly what workouts will help train for that.
   Another aspect of the app is the friends feature.  You can add your friends that also have the app and see what workouts they've been doing and comment encouragements on their page.  One of my friends has this app as well and we like to compare workout routes and distances with each other, which has been fun.
   One thing about this app that some people may feel uncomfortable with/have technical difficulties with is that the app uses GPS to track your workouts.  I've never had any issues with this aspect of the app, but I thought I'd put that out there:)
RunKeeper is available on both iPhone and Android, and I would highly recommend it for someone who does or would like to start doing workouts.
   Please leave any questions about RunKeeper in the comments and I would be happy to answer them!  Happy running :) 

Under "me" the stats of workouts are listed.

NYX Lipgloss: Is it Worth It?

Tube of NYX lipgloss in the color nude peach.
Doe Foot Applicator. the NYX lipglosses are constantly talked about in the youtube beauty community, especially by missglammorazzi and allthatglitters21.  They have been completely hyped up as cheap good quality lipglosses and so I decided to pick one up a few months ago to see what the fuss was about and...
To be completely honest, the color is completely off.  It is definitely not "nude peach" like it says.  In real life, it appears as more of a bubblegum pink, which is a fine color but not if you believe you are buying a nude gloss. In addition to the color mislabel, the gloss itself is not even on the lips.  The pigmentation is quite spotty, giving it a patchy and milky look on the lips, which looks incredibly unappealing.  Lastly, the formula is so sticky that it becomes increasingly hard to talk when wearing it.  It feels like glue on my lips!  
Now I want to know...did I get a lipgloss out of a bad batch or is this product really a fail?   A lot of youtubers wear these in their videos and look great.  However, as I found, they do look a lot more polished and less intense in color when photographed.  
Have any of you tried one of these?  If so, let me know what you think of it in the comments!  I like a lot of NYX products and wanted so baly to love this, but it was just too horrible.
I can tell you right now that I will probably never wear this again.
