So, I won my first giveaway the other day! I've entered probably about a million, but I finally won something. Revlon's "Perplex." I got it from The Peach over at Just Peachy. Everyone should go follow her now, she's a total sweetheart. Here's what it looks like:
I'm not really sure how to describe this color. It's definitely purple, but it's sort of..smokey taupe/gray/purple but with a subtle violet shimmer. It's hard to describe but it's gorgeous! It only takes 2 coats for it to be completely opaque. After I found out I won this, I looked for it whenever I was in stores that sell Revlon, just to see. Nope. I never saw it anywhere. Apparently it's supposed to be an exact dupe for Chanel's "Paradoxal" and judging from the pictures I've seen (because I'm not paying $23 so I can compare), it is. Thanks, Jill! :D
I also received my Hautelook package. Kevyn Aucoin products were featured recently and one particular lip gloss caught my eye. It's called "Alurabliss."Calm down, it's totally sheer. I'm actually a little disappointed at how sheer it is. I wasn't expecting neon blue or anything, but a little blue tint would have been nice for layering. The blue sparkles are very subtle but lovely, though. It smells sort of like..Smartees? Pixie Stix? I can't put my finger on it but it's definitely a subtle candy smell. This stuff retails for $27 and I got it for $9. Thanks, Hautelook, sometimes you're useful! I can't wait to try this over red lipstick.
Have a lovely evening! :)
