l-r: Revlon ColorBurst lipstick in Blush, Innoxa Lovely Lips in Pink Peony
Included in my bag were:
Priceline 3 in 1 Exfoliating Wipes I don't really use facial wipes that often, but I guess these could be convenient for travel. Not sure how effective they'd be in removing makeup though.
Models Prefer Kohl Eyeliner in Matte Black A black pencil eyeliner. Ho hum. I've way too many of these already and I prefer felt tip eyeliner pens now, but who knows, I could be pleasantly surprised.
Revlon ColorBurst lipstick in Blush The ColorBurst formulation is a favourite of mine and I was fairly pleased to receive this shade because it was one that I'd contemplated buying. On my lips, this isn't so much MLBB but "my lips but darker". I was hoping for something more peachy or pink, but it's very brown-toned and mature-looking on me. Still, it's an inoffensive and wearable neutral.
Nude by Nature Soft Focus Illuminator Reminds me a lot of Revlon Age Defying Spa Face Illuminator, with a similar consistency (though slightly thicker and less runny) and scent. The highlighting effect is more subtle and less glittery than the Face Illuminator, which encourages me to try it as a primer under foundation. This retails for $22.95, so it's one of the more expensive items in the bag.
Savvy by DB Luxury Liner in Glitzy Gold I've previously raved about these Luxury Liners and have the entire range. Glitzy Gold is a striking shade, but one of my least favourites. It's not a gold that I find flattering on me as it's quite yellow. I would've loved to have received Brilliant Bronze instead, a favourite that I use on my lower lashline for an alternative to black.
Max Factor Xperience mascara in Black I've had quite positive experiences with Max Factor mascara in the past, so I'll be looking forward to trying this. But I won't for a while, since I have way too many unopened mascaras that I'll only get to when I finish up the ones I'm currently rotating.
Australis Paparazzi Perfect HD Blush in Poser I was kind of hoping to receive another shade, but this specific product doesn't vary between bags. I wouldn't consider this useable as a blush, but it'd be good for bronzer or contouring. Not that I do either very often.
Broadway Press & Go Nicole Scherzinger's coquettish, smiling mug on the packaging hasn't sold me on these. They just seem super fiddly and fake looking. Might give them a go when I'm super bored.
1000 Hour Nail Foils in Pink Swirl (210) The pattern really isn't for me. Seems really strange to stick these on, I can't help but think of those contact sheets that we used in primary school to wrap our textbooks. A hair dryer also has to be used somewhere in the process. Way too much effort.
Rimmel I Love Lasting Finish nail enamel in Wine Not Pretty happy with this shade, as I had my eye on a similar colour from Natio. Looking forward to sporting this when winter comes around.
Natio Mineral Pressed Powder in Light to Medium I like the packaging but I don't really use powder, so this doesn't particularly interest me. I'm thinking this might be too light on me, or could be just right.
Innoxa Lovely Lips lipstick in Pink Peony Ridiculously pigmented, super bright hot pink with raspberry and fuchsia tones. Very loud, almost neon. But I like it. Not sure when I'd wear it, but it's definitely a statement lip colour. Can be toned down if dabbed on the lips and mixed with lip balm.
Models Prefer Multipurpose Sponge Not exactly the Beautyblender, but it's a step to experimenting with a sponge. I actually bought a flat sponge from Priceline's generic beauty range a couple of months ago to see if it applied my foundation any better than a brush or my fingers, but never got around to trialling it.
Manicare Soft Touch Tweezers Always useful, though the tip of these looks a little on the thick side. Saves me buying another pair of tweezers when my current one becomes blunt, or I inevitably lose them.
Ecotools Bath Sponge Is this an annual inclusion? I seem to remember getting the same thing last year. Regardless, my mother would appreciate this. She's very much into body cleansing products.
$10 off Covergirl voucher I'd almost consider this an extra product, as I'm sure you can easily buy something at the $10 mark, though it'd mostly likely be a lip liner or gloss. Still, a decent discount and getting the choice of what to pick is always a bonus (unless you're horribly indecisive like me).
Phew! That's a lot of goodies. It all comes in a synthetic snakeskin-effect tote from Models Prefer, which is roomy and comfortable to carry. Not bad for something that's free.
