Swap Packages & Requested Swatches

Some swap packages came as I mentioned in my last post, don't you just love opening envelopes even though you know what's in it? Swapping is a great way to get rid of what you don't want without throwing them away while at the same time having the chance to try other products you want but don't need to spend money on.

This package contained Rimmel's Lasting Finish in Celeb, Airy Fairy, Pink Champagne, and NYX's Black Label Lipstick in Bling.

This one contained NYX Round Lipstick in Mars and Avon's Ultra Color Rich in Instant Mocha.

These two were other swap packages.

These swatches were of the N.Y.C. lipsticks I got from the last post.

Second pic: Lilac, Peach Ice, Velveteen, Plum Rum, Truffle

These are swatches of the Victoria's Secret Wet/Dry Eyeshadow. I tried to do them wet too but I don't think they came out right so it's just the normal swatches shown. The colors are so pretty! The colors are Bronzinger, Crystal Ball, Espresso Lane, Gold Rush, Hot Ginger, and Smokin'.

Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick: Swatches + Review

This is a review on Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipsticks. I bought these a while back when they were on sale for $2.49 each (I believe retail was around $6). I see on their website now that they updated the packaging a little and have new colors. I find that whenever I feel like wearing lipstick, I reach for these because of the nice colors they put on my lips and the moisturizing feeling that lasts a long time. If I want an extra shine, I can just easily add lip gloss on top and go! I would definitely purchase these again!

Colors from left to right:
U2: Wink
U4: Twinkle Pink
U5: Posy Pink
U9: Lasting Mauve
U13: Sparkling Warm Rose
U104: Suede
U105: Cozy Mauve

NYX Girls Round Lip Gloss: Swatches + Review

I don't know I'm so addicted to NYX so much! The following will be a review and swatches of the Round Lip Glosses that I own. In the entire collection, there are a total of 36 colors and they retail for $2.00 US each. I ordered these from Cherry Culture when they had their 50% off sale so they were only $1.00! These smell really good compared to the Megashine Lip Gloss in my opinion, more like ice cream or a shake. From what I've read from other bloggers, they don't last very long, but it seems long lasting to me, perhaps because I do not really eat or drink that much when I have gloss/lipstick on. The variety of colors that these come in are very pretty, ranging from shimmery to color only. The doe foot applicator it comes with is slightly angled which doesn't really make a difference to me. The only thing I would add to make this better is if it had a sweet taste to it or something of that nature. Otherwise, I highly recommend these because of the low price and the way you can wear them alone or layer them on a matching lipstick!
