Random parcels of fun

As the title says.. yesterday i received my expected parcel from E.l.f, but somehow.. i got this little surprise!
Yeah, weird right? Well that's what i thought.. i have no idea where this came from, the parcel had my name and address handwritten on it, but with the Revlon stamp so.. did i win a competition i forgot about? Who knows, so here's some pics and reviews etc..

First things first - i got three extremely awesome products. So i'll go in simple order.

NEW! Revlon Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze
Well here's the product on the site (above) and here's the actual product i recieved (below), not a bad looking product - infact it looks really gorgeous.. the packaging is just yum! But the lid made me think there was something in it, i don't know why lol!

Here's a good bio of the product from the Revlon site:

'Revlon’s first longwearing lip gloss with a unique mineral complex that provides a glossy seal of conditioning color. Just one application of this cushiony formula keeps lips coated with comfortable color for up to 8 hours, with no need for touch-ups. Available in 12 gorgeous, glossy shades.'

Well, i got the shade in Neverending Nude, and this is what the colour is meant to look like, as opposed to the actual swatch.

As you can see.. nothing alike!! I would seriously be so pissed off if i bought this thinking that mauve colour was what i was expecting.. there is nothing wrong with the actual formula.. the product itself is nice - a bit thick - but nice! However this is a completely silly difference in colour - what i got was something more sandy/orangey than mauvey. Oh well.. the brush is your standard gloss brush, and the formula is thick, non sticky and lasts for ages! But the colour is just such a disappointment. Not sure about the retail price currently, as this is a new product that hasn't been added to any online drugstore such as boots. Hopefully this product will be put up in the next few weeks as the actual product is great - just not loving the colour! 8/10

Part Two will see some of their Limited Edition stuff.. ohh fabulous!

I just bought Revlon lipglaze, it is really nice. The track is also awesome.
