Sighting these lipsticks in my local Shoppers, it never itched me at all to bother with these. Still being as frugal as ever, $12/lipstick... I just couldn't do it. I am super appreciative of the drugstore brands here being a lot lower priced than in Australia, but I still can't weigh out the costs.
(But I will definitely be throwing [drugstore brand makeup] hunnids once I am employed *giggles*)
I always admired the amount of makeup people in the US/Canada would be selling online. To my luck, I saw a lady selling six Maybelline Vivid lippies, but I still couldn't do it, even though it would have been $7.50~ a piece, it was just too much for my pocket to handle. I passed the offer and found myself curling in my bed the next few days, wide awake, thoughts going through my head of regret. I would awaken each successive morning, and peep into my, now- depressing lipstick box, with no shades I would want to wear. It is really hard now, from being buried (not really, just fourty+ lippies) a few months ago, and to now, just having a measily 12 to choose from.
Another offer came up, of four lippies this time, and now, $8.00/ea. There were 3/4 in this bundle that I wanted. Oh, the pinks!!! The purples!!! I had to do it. I accepted the invoice, and a week and a half later...
I quickly scoffed down my blueberry waffles, sorted out my college application, and opened each lipstick in awe. I can't describe my happiness opening the package this morning. They are so beautiful.
Bottom to top: Hot Plum, Fuchsia Flash, Brazen Berry and Vibrant Mandarin

I am especially in love with Brazen Berry! It's a purple that I've never tried before. Vibrant Mandarin, I knew, once I opened the package that I wouldn't look so great on me, and that was true. But I do need a red-orange tone lippy in my life again (I previously had BYS Wet Red).
These are super pigmented, buttery, moisturising and stains so nicely!
A purchase, with no regrets!
