Hey lovely readers! :) I recently took pictures of two small hauls from the NEX and from K-Mart which are both here in Guam. I decided to combine both hauls because they would have been so short by themselves! So far I'm loving everything I purchased aside from the mascara which I haven't opened yet (I have way too many mascaras open at the moment so I need to use them up! If you're a mascara addict like myself, then you know how that goes! lol!). Anyway, here's what all I got...
|Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara, Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters in Tutti Frutti & Cherry Tart|
Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara: I haven't opened this product yet so I can't comment on it, although I am very intrigued by the brush!

|Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters 015 Tutti Frutti & 070 Cherry Tart|
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti: This is a bright yet sheer orange that can be worn sheer or built up for a more opaque look like my swatch above. It's not 100% opaque like a lipstick would be so I think it's a perfect choice for someone who wants to try out a bright color but is a little unsure about something too bright. My lips are pigmented so this doesn't show up as the true orange that you see in the swatch. It ends up being almost a coral/orangy red. So pretty and perfect for Spring & Summer! These aren't long lasting so you will have to reapply throughout the day.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Cherry Tart: I think this is the perfect color for anyone who is intimidated to wear red lipstick but secretly wants to try it. It gives a sheer wash of red that reminds me of the effect of eating red candy or drinking red Kool-aid. It's moisturizing and slightly glossy so it feels really nice on the lips. It's not long lasting so it will have to be reapplied throughout the day.

|L'Oreal Colour Riche Balms in Caring Coral & Nourishing Nude, ELF Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Baby Lips, ELF Hypershine Lipgloss in Flirt|

|L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm 418 Caring Coral & 818 Nourishing Nude|
L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral: This balm gives your lips the slightest wash of a peachy/coral color that looks really natural. It's glossy but not as much as an actual lipgloss and is super moisturizing. I love these because they enhance the natural color of my lips.These seem to get bad ratings because people compare them to Revlon Lip Butters and obviously these are nowhere near as pigmented. However, I really don't think they're meant to be. These are essentially tinted lip balms which aren't meant to be deeply pigmented. These are sheer and very wearable.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Nourishing Nude: This balm gives your lips a sheer wash of pinky nude. It's really pretty and is also extremely moisturizing and enhances your natural lip color. For me it's that "your lips but better" shade.

|Swatches of ELF Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Baby Lips & ELF Hypershine Lipgloss in Flirt|
ELF Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Baby Lips: I wouldn't call this a lipstick by any means simply because it's not as pigmented as a lipstick. It is definitely more of a lipgloss and has is a sheer nude-pink color. It feels a bit thick on the lips but not too sticky. I don't mind the feeling but if you don't like thick lipglosses then you won't like how this feels at all. It applies by twisting the bottom so that the product comes out onto the fuzzy angled applicator.

ELF Hypershine Lipgloss in Flirt: This lipgloss is a really pretty medium pink. This gloss doesn't feel as thick as the Liquid Lipstick but is still a bit heavy but not overly sticky. It applies by twisting the bottom so that the product comes out into a soft lip brush.

I hope this info was helpful to you all. I'm really enjoying every single one of these lip products and have been wearing one of the six every single day. I will eventually post a review on the mascara once I open it up. Take care everyone & leave a comment if you have a question about any of these products! :)
