Haulin’ and New Swatches


As you saw in yesterday’s “Spotted” post, I went shopping this weekend and came home with some goodies to review here on BiBB.  Here are the items that I picked up that I plan to do discuss in more depth:

  • City Color Spring Fling Collection blushes in Pink and Terracotta- You may recognize these blushes from this post.  I finally broke down and got both of them.  Keep your eyes peeled for a review.
  • NYX Slide On Eye Pencil in “Golden Olive”- I’ve been wanting to try these eyeliners o see if they are a cheaper alternative to my Stila liners, which I love, but are too expensive.  I have heard them compared to Urban Decay liners, so I’ve got my fingers crossed.  I’ll let you know how it turns out.
  • Essence Lipstick in “Look at Me!”- I’ve been wanting to try more products from this line.  I adore the nail polishes that I have and also my Essence lip glosses, so I’m excited to try the lipstick as well.
  • Wet n Wild Megashield Lip Color in “Ring Around the Rosy”- Another hybrid between a lipstick and a lip balm.  I am very interested to see how Wet n Wild’s version holds up to the gold standard (In my mind, anyway) of the Revlon Lip Butters.
  • Palladio Herbal Tinted Lip Balm in “Bronzy Pink”- I finally picked one of these up after hearing emilynoel83 rave about them time and time again.  These lip balms are supposed to be as pigmented as a lipstick, so you will see in my review if they really are.

In addition to the items that I am going to review, I also picked up two new shades of the Jordana Easyshine Glossy Lip Color that I reviewed in this post.  Since I already did a review, I didn’t want to post about them again, but I wanted to show you swatches of these additional colors.  The shades that I purchased are “Sugar Plum” and “Sweet Strawberry”.

Here is “Sugar Plum”

And here is “Sweet Strawberry”

They are just as great as the original two Easyshine Glossy Lip Colors that I have (and use all the time).  I strongly recommend these to anyone who doesn’t want to pay full price for Lip Butters.  $2.49 is much easier to swallow than $7.49.

I am a self proclaimed eyeshadow junkie whose main hobbies include shopping, reading, singing, and mainlining caffeine while hanging out with my friends. I love interesting socks and have amassed quite a collection. The place that I want to visit before I die would be Greece. I like to read all seven Harry Potter books once a year the way some people read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. (Sorry JRRT, but JKR kicks butt in my book.) I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.
