Bring on the pastels and neon colors…
As you know, if you read my blog, I love to participate in beauty box swaps. I have met amazing bloggers from all over the world and have created great friendships. My most recent swap was with my blogging friend, who is like a sister, Donna-Marie of The Beauty Holder. She is from the United Kingdom and I live in the Evergreen State. We live far apart but that hasn’t stopped us from building a friendship and swapping beauty items!
I always post all the contents of the box at one time and then I always say “Review coming later!” Well that review never comes because I get sidetracked…and ya-da, ya-da, ya-da. Anyways, I thought reviewing each item (or items from the box) would be a better idea that way you can see what I got and also get a review of the products at the same time!
The first two items I decided to review are the lip colors that Donna-Marie sent me. One is from Revlon, their Just Bitten Kissable line and the other is from L.A. Colors which is a moisturizing lip gloss.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable in Darling Cherie
This is a perfect spring color and because I love purple lip colors! I had not tried Revlon’s balm stains before even though I have seen them a million times in the store. I am glad that I received one from Donna- Marie, but I wish I would have picked one up sooner! I love this balm stain. The color payoff is good and as you apply the lip color it has a light minty -tingly sensation to it. To me, it is not an annoying sensation, it is more of a refreshing feeling. The color does last all day long and the texture of the balm is moisturizing but not heavy!
L. A. Colors Moisturizing Lipgloss in Orchid
If you are not quite ready for the pastels or bright pop of color, this is a great alternative. It’s a pinkish color that adds a flush of color and shine to your lips. I have tried a few of L.A. Colors products and I can honestly say I have loved everything I have tried from them. I have a problem with lip glosses that are too thick and it seems there is an increasing amount of them coming out on the market. I don’t want to press my lips together and have to peel them apart from each other. I assure you, that this lip color is not like that. It provides moisture and color, without the heaviness other lip glosses may have.
I think that both of theses lip glosses are spring worthy!
Are you ready for spring?
