The makeup didn't appeal to me, on exception of the Queen Bee Lipglass. I'm really enjoying this one (um, it's already a third empty), because although it's a bit more sheer than I expected, it goes a long way in toning down the pinkness of my lips. I paired it with NYX's Tea Rose round lipstick, and developed the most beautiful pinky/coral that I could have asked for. It's extra yummy with a tan.
The Honey Skin Salve is the sort of product I'm always on the hunt for. Something moisturizing, that is ridiculously thick. The lady at the counter need only slap it on my elbow for me to realize that "Oh yes...I need this. I totally see what it's doing.." The stuff is thick. Sure it may be a bit overpriced compared to other salves, but the scent is that of honey. Top that.
The final product that I snatched was one of the scents, Africanimal. I'm an avid user of Lush's Honey I washed the Kids (solid, please!), and so naturally the lingering scent of honey in this one also appealed to my senses. It's definitely not light, but instead offers a heady sort of nightime muskiness. As of late, I've rediscovered a bit of an obsession with fragrance, so it didn't take much to throw this one in the bag.
Unfortunately (and fortunately), I pre-ordered all of these things, and they accidentally rung me up for doubles on all of the items. I think that mi madre is happily enjoying all of her new honey scented items in Aussie :) I like to think of it as a reminder of her daughter, and why she needs to hurry home!
Does anyone know of a good dupe for Queen Bee? Also, are you looking forward to any upcoming MAC lines?
