For this second installment, I choose four products: Guerlain Madame Rougit blush (my original review of this is here), Lipstick Queen Hello Sailor (reviewed here), Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Lemonade, and a Wet n' Wild eyeshadow in Nutty.
Guerlain Madame Rougit: this blush is a stunner in the pan that set me back a steep $67 when it was released last fall. I love the scent of Guerlain products and there is no denying that this is a beautiful blush to have sitting in your drawer. But I was never impressed with its application on the cheeks. It was simply mediocre and the color isn't particularly unique. I am trying to focus on keeping only products I love, not just products that are pretty to look at or that I want to own for the sake of it.
Lipstick Queen Hello Sailor: this blue lipstick is absolutely terrifying in the bullet, but it applies exceptionally sheer. It is meant to impart a healthy looking tint to the lips and make teeth appear whiter. I'll admit that I bought this almost purely for the gimmick factor--and because I love Poppy King and her Lipstick King line. Unfortunately, I rarely--if ever--reach for Hello Sailor. My lips are already so, so cool toned that I just don't see that much of a difference when I wear this, other than the fact that it adds a sheen to my lips. That's simply not enough to warrant hanging on to this lipstick.
Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Lemonade: Pink Lemonade was released as one of four new additions to the Revlon Lip Butter line sometime in early 2013 (if memory serves correctly). I like the handful of Lip Butters that I own, but the color of Pink Lemonade just doesn't suit my lips. It is too light and looks a bit garish on me. I think I've worn it twice and both times I hated the way it looked on me. Sad, but I'll stick to other shades I know I love if I want to slap on a Lip Butter.
Wet n' Wild Single Eyeshadow in Nutty: in the interest of full disclosure, I feel that I should mention that I bought Nutty over a year ago and still have never even opened the package (no, not even now). I fully intended to force myself to at least try it during this Love It or Toss It challenge, but I've recently picked up a number of beautiful eyeshadow palettes that have kept me preoccupied. I'm nonetheless going to keep Nutty. It is a tiny single shadow and only costs $.99, so why not just hang on to it and wait for the perfect time to use it? Based on the internet's feelings towards this shadow, I'm betting I will love it if & when I eventually get around to trying it out!
