So this “haul” consist of things I got for free at the mall today! 2 of them are from Sephora, whereas the other one is from the Bay.
Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Papaya is a gorgeous coral, with fine gold shimmer. This line of lipgloss is described as “Lips that shine with killer colour. This weightless gloss makes lips pop with 5X more shine than patent leather.”
I don’t know if it lives up to the claim of 5x more shine than patent leather (those things are pretty darn shiny already!), but it does give the lips a gorgeous shine. Papaya looks very coral in the tube, but when worn on my lips, it looks more pink than in the tube, possibly because my natural lip colour is bringing out the pink in the shade. The gold shimmer is really subtle, so if you are weary of having a sparkle-fest on your lips (like me), it actually looks more like a creme finish, unless you really stare at it and look for the shimmer. When I saw the colour I immediately thought of MAC ‘s Star Quality, but Papaya is much more coral in comparison, and with shimmer (Star Quality is a creme finish). The formula is non-sticky, which is a great surprise. It takes a couple runs to get even colours, but it glides on the lips easily, without much pooling in the lines. It wore for close to 4 hours on its own. It does not feel drying at all, but after 4 hours, I find the skin on my lips peeling (maybe it’s just me?), which is weird since my lips feel really moisturized the whole time. Continue reading

Then I realized the sale doesn’t start until May 11! Good thing I didn’t embarras myself… But I made sure I went to the pharmacy this morning to get my hands on some of the lip products!
