Okay, dolls! I have 5 mainstream grab bags and (so far) 3 Indie-only grab bags. The mainstream bags MIGHT have polishes from high-end, drugstore, and/or possibly a full-size Indie or two (or FREE minis, not in every bag!) making it 5 polishes for $30 shipped. Indie-only bags will have 5 full-size Indies (and possibly FREE minis, not in every bag) for $40 shipped. Email me at tanejasbride@gmail.com if you’re interested!

And, the cutest hair pins!!!!

Let’s go through what was in the box, and then, I’ll share my details with you!

A vintage “cigarette” case with lipsticks. Dream come true. The size of these lipsticks is probably about the length of a cigarette, too – guessing 3 inches, as I am not a smoker. Not a full-size lipstick, but a good trial size, as you can get a good amount of use from it. I really adore the packaging!

Next, we have the Voluminizing Mascara. I must say, I was really enjoying the fact that the packaging was pretty consistent. I have a Julep lip gloss/liquid lipstick, which is in a similar container, if you will, and I love this.

Adore the brush, too. It was great at crushing any clumps and did a great job, as you will see in the pictures I post later of the lipstick swatches!

Next was the DELICIOUS sugar lip scrub. When you open it, you a immediately transported to a candy store. It smells like brown sugar, caramel and divinity! Delicious. I have yet to use it, but I can assure you it will be really soon. I usually make my own out of sugar and olive oil (and it doesn’t smell so good) so I am looking forward to this. The little gold globe that contains the sugar lip scrub is SO beautiful! It reminds me of a snitch (minus the wings – if you are a Harry Potter fan, you know what I mean!).

Okay, so I’m sure we’re ready to get to the lipstick/mascara swatches, right?!

Tea for Two – a nude shimmer with the consistency of a lip balm. For me, it was a lip balm as there was no color added to my lips.
Satin Doll – a poppy sheer that I wish were more opaque as it had so much potential.
Lady in Red – a matte red that was gorgeous and opaque.

The lipsticks tasted/smelled of citrus vanilla. I was blown away by this because it was amazing. I love a lipstick that has a scent that is unique!

What do you think about these? Worthwhile or no? I only had to pay $19.99 for this month, so I think it was pretty good!
