I'm so glad that I tried this since it became my new favorite but the sad apart about it is that now it's discontinued. Even though this is limited edition I thought I would do a review on it becuas there is so little about it on the internet. When I looked it up on MakeUpAlley I saw that reviewers gave it a Average Rating. of 4.5 out of 5.0 and 90% of the reviewers would buy this product again.
The color is a mixture of a coral mauve /pink brown with gold shimmer in it. It looks like typical Guerlain lipsticks. It comes out sheer but is very buildable. It feels similar to a MAC lustre formula but I fond it better and smoother. It looks very natural to where everyday and it makes my lips pop out.
I decided to do some comparisons with this since it is limited edition and I would like to find a dupe of it. As you can see it is more orange than MAC - Warm Me Up and much lighter and pinker than MAC Viva Glam VI. If someone knows a dupe of it please let me know since I have been buying many drugstore lipsticks to find a rosey color like this.
I have a lot of great reviews coming up so keep checking back for more posts! Thanx for reading :)

Hello Everyone! Last Week CVS had a BOGO 50% off sale on Revlon lipsticks so I was intereted in buying two more! The better part about this was that I had a $5.00 off CVS coupon so I got these two lippies for around $6.00! So I bought two lipsticks and here they are. The first one I got is Revlon Blushed (420).
I bought this because I was looking for a rosey shade with gold glitters and a MAC Lustre finish. This was my first time buying a Revlon Pearl Finish lipstick and I didn't realize that it would look so silver/ metallic on my lips. The color looks pretty natural to my normal lip color so I have been wearing it for an everyday use. Since that I have actually started to enjoy this lippie, even though it took me a while since it wasn't what I really expected from the MakeUpAlley Reviews and from my own hand swatch.
The next color is Revlon Sandalwood Beige (240).
This lipstick is in a creme finish and has no shimmer at all. It was under the Nudes section towards the end of the row. I wanted to try this one after I saw one of my fellow Blogger swatch it. I thought it would be a rose color since that's what I was looking for but I was wrong. It's a tanned peach/coral color that is orange based. I really extremely love this color and I was so shocked because I find this color to be very unique and cool! I definitely recommend this color if you are a MAC NC35- more skintone!
I have a lot of post coming up so keep checking back. Thanks for reading :)

They first color is called Pink Please. It's a very creamy light pink/peach with some red/brown undertones. I heard great things about this online and I am happy that I bought it since it's a bit different than the other ones I got. This is the kind of pink that doesn't wash me out and can be paired with almost any gloss. It has no shimmer in it also. I love it.
The next color I got is called Warm Me Up. I found it funny that it has that name since it reminded me of MAC's Warm Me Up. It's a brown/mauve color with no shimmer in it. I havn't compared it to MAC's Warm Me Up but I think MAC's is a bit more peachy.
The next color I got is called Park Ave. Peach. I absolutley love this color. It's a coral/peach/brown color. Once again this one does not contain any shimmers. If you love corals, then you'll love this one!
The last color I got is called Blushing Brunette. THIS COLOR IS MY FAVORITE! out of all four of them. I could wear this all the time. I've been wearing this a lot lately. It feels like a lustre formula and has a shimmer/shine to it. The color (brown/pink) is a bit darker than my normal lipsticks but I definately recommend this one!
Maybeline Color Sensational Lipsticks in from Left to Right: Pink Please(025), Warm Me Up (235), Park Ave Peach (535), and Blushing Brunette (245)

So yesterday I purchased Greasepaint sticks and pearlglide eyeliners from the MAC Art Supplies collection which came out yesterday. The collection also had these lipstain markers but I decided to skip those because they didn't seem very useful to have. So here's what I got.
Industrial LE: From the Art Supplies Collection. It's a periwinkle grey which looks dark blue but has very bright light blue glitters. When flashing with a camera, it seems lighter than the original color. Goes on very smoothly and is smudgeproof.
Undercurrent LE: From the Art Supplies Collection.It's a blue teal will very bright golden glitters, Goes on very smoothly and is smudgeproof.
Designer Purple LE: From the Art Supplies Collection. It's a bright grape-purple with pink and purple glitters. Very unique and great to have. Goes on very smoothly and is smudgeproof.
Petrol Blue LE: From the Art Supplies Collection. It's a dark navy blue with turquoise/cyan blue sparkles and glitters. I love this, it's very unique from other blue liners. Goes on very smoothly and is smudgeproof.
Sorry for the smudged swatch near Petrol Blue, it was from an eyeliner swatch.
Below Ground LE: From the Art Supplies Collection. It's a blackened bronze that seems like a gold base. It's very nice to have for lighter colored Mineralize eyeshadows or for under your eyes.
Dirty LE: From the Art Supplies Collection.It's a blackened taupe with pearl, silver, gold glitters. It looks amazing for creasing a neutral eyeshadow look or for brown eyeshadows.
Slick Black LE: From the Art Supplies Collection. It's a true carbon black with no glitters or shimmer. This is great to pair with Mineralize eyeshadows, especially the ones from the MAC Styleblack collection.
The special thing about these Greasepaint sticks is that they have a sharpener that you can pull off at the end. It's very cute and small, I didn't get to test them out yet but I will test them out soon.
