A care package :)

I received this care package from the wonderfully generous US beauty and nail blogger Kaki last Friday and it couldn't have arrived at a better time - no excuses for me buying anything new this (or the next) week (or month!) and let me tell you I don't have the need to!  I'm feeling thoroughly spoilt having received this lot - Kaki you're my own beauty fairy hands down :)))  This is the proverbial 'kid in a candy store', 'Christmas come early' sort of stuff!

Lip products
Left to Right:
  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains - Rendezvous, Charm, Darling, Smitten.  These are what started this chain of events.  I was wishing out loud to Kaki that these would hurry up and launch down here in Australia and she kindly offered to send me some! I'm so pleased with these balm stains already - they're richly pigmented and yet feel so light on the lips.  Swatches and review are on the way soon :)
  • Wet n Wild lipliner - 666 Brandy Wine. This has arrived just in time as a back up for my old WnW pencil. These pencils are amazingly long, so they last foreverrrrr and 666 is my go to shade.

Nail polish
Left to Right:
  • China Glaze - Marry a Millionaire, Swanky Silk, Electric Beat.  I'm always looking to add to my China Glaze collection and these were my picks.
  • Wet n Wild - Ferguson Crest Syrah.  This is from the Fergie Collection and was a surprise from Kaki.  It's an amazing duochrome glass-fleck.  Love it!
  • Pixel - Mis-Chief-Ous. Another surprise addition to the package and an uber-pretty Spring shade.

Wet n Wild Eyeshadow palettes
Clockwise from top left:
  • Comfort Zone - I've been lemming this palette for an eternity!
  • Petal Pusher - A surprise addition and perfect for a purple lover like me.
  • Walking on Eggshells - Another Kaki pick. Neutrals for every day.

Aside from the Revlon balm stains (which I've already swatched) let me know what you want to see swatched and reviewed and I'll be happy to do so!

That's it for now.

  4. Comfort Zone is such a fantastic palette - I'm sure you'll enjoy it! I wonder why the Revlon lip stains still haven't arrived in Australia. Rendezvous looks to be a really summery colour!

    1. Just saw a Priceline update: The Balm Stains will be here mid November, don't know what they'll cost though. We'll be getting the full range I think? 12 shades anyway :)

  5. What an amazing haul you have there! I love those Revlon lip stains...they launch in November here, so I'll probably be swatching more and then buying from ebay. :P

    I'd love to see swatches of those eyeshadow palettes, please? :)

    1. Oh Emma you are going to LOVE the balm stains - I don't have a negative thing to say about them at all. The hard part is going to be stopping myself from collecting more once they launch! I'm looking forward to wearing Marry A Millionaire too - it was my first ChG pick!

  12. Ooooh, good stuff! I've never tried WnW palettes but keep seeing so many good reviews. I'm going to guess that you'll be dipping into the nail polishes first, LOL. ;)
