Having spent two months trying out (most) these products, I thought I'd share my opinions with you so you can go forth and support the economy!
Just a recap of what Jenny sent me. Also, special thanks to Jenny for these pictures on this post. All pictures were taken by her.
|Revlon Colorstay for Normal/Dry skin in 180 Sand Beige; Revlon Colorstay Combination/Oily skin in 180 Sand Beige; Tweezerman Mini Slant Tweezers|
Tweezerman Mini Slant Tweezers: I believe I have raved about Tweezerman before... except I can't find the post. Tweezerman tweezers are AMAZING. They get the stubbiest hair with no troubles at all. I also love the pattern on this pair of tweezers, and it's great that $1 goes to starlight children's foundation.
|MUFE HD Powder; Orly Bonder; The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Dome|
Orly Bonder: I've got two opened bottles of this, so I have yet to use this exact bottle. It's a fantastic base coat. However, the reason why Jenny gave this to me was because you can peel your nail polish off when having a hot shower, making it perfect for removing annoying glitter manis. Unfortunately, I don't stay long enough in the shower for this to work. I also think my acrylic nails plays a part in my polishes not peeling.
The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Dome: I have to admit that I've been neglecting this product. I've only used this once. The smell of it didn't appeal to me at all. I tried to use it on my lips but the smell just got to me, and the reason why I haven't been using it on my cheeks is because Jenny sent me a far superior product that I haven't been able to stop using (product to be revealed further down).
|NARS Blush in Deep Throat; MAC Eye Brows Crayon in Lingering|
MAC Eye Brows Crayon in Lingering: This eyebrow crayon was great when I had blonde highlights through my hair. However, after recently dying my roots dark brown (and ends blonde), Lingering is a touch too light for my liking. Having said that, it's a great eyebrow crayon that does not need sharpening. I would most likely purchase this in a darker shade (if there's one... I haven't looked yet as I'm still broke).
|NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige; Maybelline ColorSensational 914 Vibrant Mandarin|
NYX Lip Gloss: This is a great lip gloss! I love everything about it. Love the colour, the taste, the packaging, the texture, the smell. It is also not sticky.
Maybelline ColorSensational: I tried this lipstick once. Unfortunately, as Jenny had predicted, it is too vibrant for my comfort levels. :(
|Face of Australia Glitterati in Studio 54 and Funky Town|
So that's the end! I wish I had planned this earlier and taken some swatches (I'm writing this post from my parents' and some of these products are living in Mike's house). If you would like to see a more in-depth review of some of these products, please leave your request below.

Please make sure you head over to Jenny's blog and check out her posts! She's one of the most amazingly friendly and generous bloggers I've ever met. I'm looking forward to our next swap, which will hopefully be sometime in the near future! :)
