Greetings from the head of the party, fellow rogues!
No, I haven’t discovered a trap (unless you’re watching out for your wallet at the moment!), it’s something much better! Loot! After an epic wait and much faffing about by Revlon, their Lacquer and Matte Balms have landed in Middle Earth (NZ)! They’ve actually been out for a few days already at Farmers, but I’ve only been able to get to the Revlon stands at the Unichem pharmacies on Queen St. As a bonus – said Unichem pharmacies are currently having a deal – two Revlon lip products for $30. These chubby pencils usually retail for $20.50 each, so if you’ve been waiting for them, now is a good time to be nabbing a few!
But enough of all that – you want to see the pretty pictures, yes? The loot? Well, here you are!
When I had finished hyperventilating over this hoard I discovered, I noted that the testers were all still pretty pristine – so I had a mega swatch fest, both for myself and for all you people out there whose day isn’t complete without seeing coloured stripes on a rogue’s vampiric inner forearm. You’re welcome.
First up, the Lacquer Balms:
Next: the Matte Balms:
Right! Now I have a little contest for you: I purchased two of these 20 shades on that deal I mentioned above! If you’re feeling in a betting mood, you can guess which ones they were! The prize for the first three people to correctly comment identifying the two shades will receive a custom prize badge (image) that they can display proudly on their blog, computer desktop, adventuring board etc. I haven’t thought exacty what I’ll name the prize yet, but I’ll try and be amusing – this is a bit of a silly competition, after all. Remember to justify why you think I would choose the two shades you’re guessing – prizes for originality/rogueish appropriateness are also available!
Until next time, fellow rogues, don’t forget to check for loot as well as traps!
