Well.ca Haul and Experience Review

A little while ago Well.ca was having a sale on some CoverGirl products, so I took advantage of that and got a few things from the website. This is my first time placing an order from them so I decided to post a review about them also.

First let’s get on with the haul, all the CoverGirl products I got were 50% off, including the Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss in the shades Black Diamond, Constant Candy, and Perfect Penny (Right to Left). I originally got 3 of the CoverGirl Jumbo Gloss Balm, in the shades Rose Twist (top), Blush Twist (bottom), and Ruby Twist, which unfortunately was not packed with my package. Instead, they packed the Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss in the shade All Night Long (more on this matter in a bit). I also picked up the CoverGirl Clump Crusher Mascara in Very Black because I’ve heard a lot of amazing things about it. To bring my total up to enough for free shipping, I picked up the Tresemme Nourishing Rituals Rejuvenating Mud Masque, since I have been quite into hair masks lately, in hopes to salvage my damaged hair.

When I found out they packed the wrong item, I was NOT happy, especially because I was super excited to try Ruby Twist. So I gave them a call, and first, I didn’t have to wait in line, and the customer service was really nice and helpful. After I explained what happened, she told me she would refund me for the Jumbo Gloss Balm that I didn’t get, and told me to keep the Rimmel lipgloss. I also got my refund within 10 minutes of hanging up, which I think is amazingly fast. Apart from this little fiasco, the whole shopping experience on their site was very smooth, and items shipped the next day, and I got them within 2 days. Overall I am very satisfied with my experience with Well.ca and I will definitely

R+S: Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balm in Coral Twist

Image (1)

Hi all! Sorry for the lack of posting lately. I’ve finally found some time to get back to this blogging business, and boy I didn’t even realize how much I missed it!

Anyhow, today I bring to you a quick review and swatch of the Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balm in the shade Coral Twist (235). It is a gorgeous coral color that is just bright enough for some added colours to the lips, but not too bright for everyday wear. I think this is going to be my go-to lip product for spring and summer this year because the colour is so pretty and versatile. It applied smoothly, without any drag, but I didn’t think it was that moisturizing. Mind you, this did not dry my lips out, but it is advertised as a balm so I expected a but more hydration from this. Wear-time wise, it maxed out at around 3 hours for me, which is not really surprising given that this is supposed to be a “balm”.

I am a little late on this jumbo-lip-pencil/gloss/balm-bandwagon, since Ikind of dropped out of the beauty circle for a while. But with all these different companies coming out of this type of products, I am excited to try more! As a matter of fact, I (finally) grabbed myself a Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm (in Honey), so expect a review + swatch of that in the next little while! 🙂

Have you tried this type of lip product? What is your favourite?
