HEB Haulin'

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks...

I was born and raised in Houston Texas and have lived here all of my 29 years. I love being a Texan and will always call this state my home...but as with all things in life, there is always good and bad...

Draw backs of Texas living-- 1. Humidity  2. Hurricanes  3. Cockroaches

Why do I love this state--1. Whataburger  2. Buc-ee's  3. HEB

Those first two I'll cover at another place and time...this post is an ode to HEB. For those of you not from the south, HEB is a grocery store chain with a beauty section to die for. I mean...puts Ulta to shame. Hours of my life have been lost to those aisles...but I don't regret a second of it. HEB has amazing prices and usually have some pretty awesome specials running too. Last week, $2.50 off all Revlon cosmetics over $2.50 making each of these lipsticks $3.47 each, so I took the opportunity to stock up on some lip products I've been eyeballing for some time.

 I meant to have more diversity in my selections but nope...I pretty much picked up five of the same damn shades...which I didn't realize until I got home and began "Phase 1: Swatching". Oops...oh well...I guess my look for spring will consist of one color: MAUVE

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks...$3.47 each, whooo HEB!

  1. These colours are so gorgeous :)


    1. Thank you! For looking so similar in the tube, I was surprised at how different they looked on the lips!

  2. Twinkled Pink is a gorgeous shade!

    1. Thank you, yes I agree! I love shades like this, they're so easy and effortless! Thank you for the comment!

  3. This happens with me ALL the time. When I buy a lipstick shade, it looks gorgeous at store but when I reach home and test it again, it looks different altogether. I have few of the lipsticks which
    comes in the category of not-so-good shades so I use them less often.
