|I love getting little boxes in the mail. Some of you may recall that the boyfriend dubbed me, L.B. after all the “little boxes” that end up on our doorstep due to my fanaticism. So when I came home to not one but two little boxes in the same week from the Rescue Beauty Lounge sales, you can imagine my delight. Tearing through packages to uncover my new treasures. Wanna see what I hauled? Check out the first half after the jump!|
Bikini Bottom is a sweet, watery, pastel blue jelly. It’s not intended to opaque so just be warned that it takes a good four coats to look as it does below. The whole Spongebob inspired collection was meant to be worn sheer. I’m just not down with the sheer angle so I’ll weather the extra coats to get this gorgeous look.
Purple Haze surprised me. I expected it to be lighter, more lavendar (i.e. hideous) on me. I ordered anyway to see if I’d luck out with a winner. Luck out indeed!! I LURVE it!! The creamy, glossy finish. The mid-tone violet hue. It’s all working for me in a major way. How did I not own this sooner? How? The boyfriend says I look my best wearing purple and I actually own a top this shade that he loves me in so I know he’ll love this on me too.
Don’t be fooled by the pictures, Yellow Fever is a problem child. I’ve never had a RBL shade give me application issues until this baby walked into my life. Love the shade, love the slightly shimmery finish. LOVE! But what I don’t love is the three coats and streaking I encountered. It’s not insurmountable, obviously, I was just disappointed.
I’ll be sharing the second half of my haul with you soon but in the meantime… for those of you that ordered from the RBL sale, how are you liking your hauls? Which shade made you all giddy-like? Share!
