Haul: A mini haul for New Year! Soap & Glory, Hard Candy, Soho NY & NYC

This is just a mini haul from Shoppers Drug Mart and from Walmart.

I always wanted to try Hard Candy's All Glossed Up lip balm sticks [or crayons], but somehow or other I missed this every time I went to Walmart. I got the shade Mauveous which looks a nice wearable pinkish shade. I think its around $5.00.

I was drooling after this Soap and Glory Mother Pucker mini lip gloss set [$25.00] ever since I saw them on the flyer for Xmas. Finally found them at a Shoppers near my office.

I wish cosmetic brands wouldn't put names that make it embarrassing for people to talk about it. I was asking this SA at Shoppers 'Do you have Soap & Glory Mother Pucker gloss set?" and she looked stunned for a min and asked me 'What do you mean by 'Mother *#$$'? I am sorry but please be nice'. Well, I had to dig up my phone, search for the product and show that to the SA before she finally understood that I wasn't bad mouthing cos of any frustration!

There was this buy 1 get 1 offer for $5.00 for NYC Appelicious Lip balms . I have never tried this so I picked the set containing a shade of Red. The shades I got are Caramel Apple and Big Apple Red. Lets see how that goes.

Finally is this brush set I got on a random online order from Walmart. There was no special need or reason, I just felt like buying it. I liked the feel of the fibre brush, expect reviews soon.

Review & Swatches: Colorbar Blush in Just Earth 05

This was one of my blog sale purchases from Corallista. I liked her review on this blush and since I was experimenting with blush shades then, I thought a natural shade may be something I can try without worrying about looking clownish.

Since this blush has been discontinued by Colorbar, I am not doing a detailed product review here, but instead I am focusing on the color of this blush. This is a matte orangey pinkish color with brown tints. I saw this shade of Orange called 'Apricot' listed in Wikipedia [for HTML web colors] which pretty well matches this color.

This is a color that works as a bronzer for some and as a blusher for some. If you are very fair, then this might work better as a bronzer for you, but if you like me are medium warm skin toned then this would be a really nice natural color for cheeks.

Nothing much to add on, except that the quality of this blush is not that great, so I dont really miss this blush. However it served it purpose i.e. building my confidence in using blushes, so I guess I am happy I found this one.
