After drinkies and nibbles the other day I went to LUSH to inquire about their skincare, and I got a sample of their Imperialis Moisturizer. At $30 a pop, I probably won't purchase it, but it'll be nice to try it.
Along with that, when I got back to the home area, I popped in to Rite Aid as well to see if they had some berry lipsticks I saw reviewed on youtube, and while they were sold out of Revlon's Black Cherry I did manage to snag Wet and Wild's Vamp It Up (919B), Stoplight Red (911D), Purty Persimmon (970), and Don't Blink Pink (966) lipsticks and their Heather Silk (832E) blusher. All of Wet and Wild was 30% off, so I got all of this for less than $10!

I also now finally got to swatch something for the blog!! At first glance, the colors all seem very smooth and super pigmented, great for those colors you don't wear every day but still want to rock every once in a while! Even after I washed my hand, the lipsticks are still slightly visible. I'll let you know on these if they end up not living up to my expectations.
I can't wait to wear all of these colors! I made sure to try to pick out shades I don't already own, so I could see if I liked wearing them (the red is a stretch, but I don't have a pinky-red!). Lipstick is truly my one make up bane.
