Okay, so this post should have gone up yesterday...but it's been a hectic week. My year end is last day of March and I have so much to do. I know it seems like far away but in business days...eep, it's really not!
Anyhow, this is a quick post of a little haul from later summer. :) We like to head to a small town about 30 minutes outside of Winnipeg called Selkirk. They have a Walmart there and we sometimes pop in to browse around. Always money burning holes in pockets. :P Anyways, this is what I picked up. Well, my DH picked out the lipstick. Prepare to be shocked!
I grabbed the essie luxeffects in a cut above. It's one of those polishes that I've picked up many a times and put back. So, finally that day I grabbed it. I wanted the whole luxeffects collection anyways. :P You know...hoarder tendencies! haah! I love that the polish has 3 or 4 sizes of glitter. There is at least 3 sizes of hex and the tiniest ones are obviously just little round specks. It is really pretty! :) I wonder what colour a cut above will look good on top of?!
This next item was totally frivolous and overpriced. It is the Anabelle Glitterama in Purple Zone. I say it's overpriced because I think it was $5 or $6. I have no idea why I had to have it. Probably because it was purple and sparkly. I've only used it once in fall I believe. Today it is completely dried out and it seems the liquid has vanished by reverse osmosis!!! No lie...it's weird. I don't recommend you waste your money on this!
It does have a lot of nice sparkles, mainly in pink and purple.
It was really hard to swatch as you can't get a straight line. I had to dab and dab to get some sparkles off..so that's all you get. It does look pretty...but not for an old lady like me. I'll stick to my glitter shadows and fine glitter liners. :P
The last item, is a Maybelline COLORsensational lipstick in 140 Fuchsia Fever. Maybelline COLORsensational lipsticks are my favourite. They are so moisturizing and the colour payoff is amazing. They don't feel tacky and they don't bleed. This brand was kind of my first foray back into lipsticks with the encouragement of my DH. Anyways...the labels don't always accurately depict what the colour is inside...
...or do they!??! LOL. BAM yep...that's pink. That's fuchsia. This is what I call Barbie Pink! lol. I wouldn't have probably picked out this colour for myself...but you know what??? I'm pleasantly surprised that I really like it. ;)
Here is a first peek. It's definitely Barbie Pink. :) WARNING! Photos ahead are taken with a cell phone!lol
Some better shots. You know...so you can look up my big nose. ;) Anyhow, I really *love* this colour.... but I think I'll just reserve it for summer! :) Especially, since I become even paler in winter than I am here lol. You can however see, that the colour does apply like a dream!
What do you think? It's not a colour I would wear everyday...but with the right outfit I think it could be totally fun! I have this great shirt that is striped and it's kind of sewn haphazard and I think it went great. No one even gave me weird looks. ;)
So, what are your thoughts on some of these products? Would you wear a colour this bold on your lips? I say why not..have fun! :)
