I like to tell people that the best thing my fiance could ever tell me is that there’s a package waiting for me at home. That’s right. There aren’t many things I love more than receiving my beauty hauls in the mail.
When he texted me today to let me know that my Ulta box came in I felt a rush come over me that was more exciting than I’d like to admit. I recently placed an order for twelve Revlon lipsticks and my lips were tingling to try them on. I’ve been pretty crazy about lipstick lately–it was never an item I reached for before but once I experimented with different colors I was hooked!! Wearing lipstick really is like putting on an accessory; same kind of confidence you get by throwing on some bangles or sexy heels. Lipstick can take you from pretty to gorgeous, from drab to fab with just one swipe. So when selecting my lipsticks from the Ulta website I chose some shades that I love wearing–soft pinks and peachy pinks–but I chose even more shades that are definitely outside of my comfort zone!
I fell in love with three colors from Revlon’s Matte Lipstick collection: Smoked Peach, Stormy Pink, and Sky Pink. I already own Really Red by Revlon which is also matte and it doesn’t dry my lips out like other matte lipsticks do. I can’t wait to try these three colors alone and with different glosses over them! Gawwjuss dahling!
The rest of the lipsticks are from Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick line. Again, I already own some other colors from this line and they feel absolutely wonderful on my lips. They are creamy, non-drying but wear for a very long time. They are my absolute favorite drugstore lipsticks and more often than not I am reaching for them over more expensive lipsticks because there are just sooooo many shades to choose from!
The Super Lustrous Lipsticks you see below are Pink Velvet, Pink in the Afternoon, Berry Haute, Temptress, and Coralberry. I’m especially excited to try Berry Haute because I’ve heard it is a dupe for MAC’s Amp It Up, a color I’ve always wanted to try!
Lastly, below are Primrose, Black Cherry, Cherries in the Snow, and Wild Orchid. Ohhhh Wild Orchid. If you only knew how many times I picked it up, but it back, picked it up, walked around the store with it…it’s finally in my possession and there’s no turning back!
I almost forgot about this little guy! Apparently NYX’s Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk has a cult following and if you knew me you’d know that I’m always down to join a beauty cult. Can’t wait to try Milk in the inner corner of my eyes and to highlight my eyebrow arch.
Thanks for checking out my haul and don’t forget to stay connected to see what my personal verdict is on all of these colors! In the meantime, I recommend taking a trip to Walgreens, Target, or Ulta and find a Revlon lipstick color that is slightly outside of what you’d normally reach for. You might just be surprised at all the shades you are missing out on!
