Proper post soon I promise!!!
Hi to all new followers :). Thanks for reading ^_^!
Here's the lipstick quiz original post ;D...
No pic, but my most used lipstick is probably Jean (the Hollywood actress, not the French name, lol) by Oriflame - half of it is gone XD. (It's a red ;D.) And it's sharp-angled...Definitely sounds like me >:-). What do you think ;)? And what's yours :D?

Swap Update :D...
(Yes, I know my collection is huge already. But at least with swaps, I can pass on things that I don't use :-P ^_^.)
Swap 1 [Canada - A Watercolour Sky swap :D!!!].
(I got her the seemingly Greece-exclusive right now Jasmine Lip Butter ^_^, and a gift set of four Korres lipsticks :D. With extras, naturally :-P ;D.)Lunasol Full Glamour gloss in Lucent Purple (review here ;D), Smashbox Tokidoki gloss in Dolcissima, Stila It Gloss in Interesting, Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing Limited Edition golden brown mascara (I love the name ^_^, & it's only been used by her on clean lashes so it's safe), Kate silver gel liner, Cargo mini bronzer tin, and Silk Naturals eye shadow in Lush (supposedly a dupe for MAC Humid - not that I care, I got it 'cause I like mineral pigments XD).
She knows me so well ^_^! Hello Kitty stuff :') - a mini file & mini polish. It's very beautiful but tiny so I'll use it sparingly, and I'm so happy to have it :).
And, I can't believe it, a mini PosieTint :'). I had this on my wishlist on Make-Up Alley - and she got it for me ^_^!!! I'd specifically requested a mini too, I see no need to own the huge one ;). It was brand new & sealed - not anymore 'cause I've opened it, lol ;D.
It fits in here perfectly:
Since taking this pic, I've depotted the Some Kinda Gorgeous 'cause I never use it XD. Gave it to my sister, who's darker than me & loves cream-to-powder foundations ;). (I prefer liquids.)
Oh, and here are the close-ups :).
Swap 2 [Ireland].
(For a lightly used Benefit gloss in Who Are You Wearing?, and some extras.)No extras, but I don't mind :). I send extras 'cause I'm nice, not because I expect any back :-P.
And you know I'm a Pout fan ;D...So yay, more Pout :D!!! This gloss is called Cross My Heart :). It's beautiful ^_^.
Swap 3 [Australia].
(For 5 Oriflame glosses from the Daydream collection - see, I do swap off things to keep my collection size relatively normal :-P. And extras, of course ;D.)
Everything came in the Clinique bag pictured above, which I love :D. We swapped for OPI Alpine Snow (wearing it right now, beautiful ^_^!), OPI Rosy Future, and MAC Lustreglass in Love Knot, from Naughty Nauticals. I missed it back then so I'm very happy to have it :).
But, she also offered to get me Australian products, and bought me a Chi Chi palette in Brazilian Goddess, which includes...The red eye shadow. It's not bronze, orange, pink, fuchsia or copper...It's red, pure true red, and very beautiful :).
She also added a Hello Kitty eraser & mirror, and a NYX lipstick in Ulysses (a vibrant bright coppery red) :).
Ironically, my perfect red did crack in transit >:-). But I can always swap for a second palette ;D.
Swap 4 [Japan].
(For my Benefit double-ended gloss in Didn't Hear It From Me & Your People, My People, and extras.)
Finally, a tag from Nicola's blog ;).Tell Me Something Tag!
1. What is your favourite item of clothing?
I have no idea >:-).
(Nice way to kick off a tag...Lol XD.)
2. What are your biggest obsessions?
Swapping :-P. And blogging, but I disappear every now and then >:-)...Sorry :(!
3. Who inspires you?
Anyone who has managed to become what I want to be or acquire qualities that I crave.
4. Who is your favourite designer and why?
I'm not really a clothes afficionado (as you can probably tell if you read my blog), but I do love Fendi's designs. I think they're kind of overlooked sometimes & that's strange to me.
5. What is your favourite song ever?
Can't pick one >:-).
6. What is your favourite song right now?
I really love this song at the moment.
7. If you were a sweetie what would you be?
Hmmm...Let's say one of those cherry liquor things. The only product containing alcohol that I'll (occasionally) consume >:-).
8. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet- what words would describe your rainbow?
Chi Chi red eye shadow (see above), oranges :D, green tea with lemon (:-P), rain, Dior Midnight Poison, and my new Lunasol gloss (pictured above) :).
9. What's your favourite film?
I don't think I have an ultimate favourite so far. Oddly, I rarely watch any. But I love Great Expectations. The book was wonderful, and the film may have deviated in some aspects but it's wonderful as well. Estella is a beauty icon, of course. And the soundtrack is stunning. I love most of Patrick Doyle's work, but the music from the 'Kissing In The Rain' scene is really beyond beautiful. [Check it out on my player (all the way below this blog) if you'd like ;).]
11. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you be?
And this is the kind of question I never answer ;).
12. What are your 3 favourite smells?
Rain, Dior Midnight Poison and right now, Boss Orange :-P ^_^.
13. What are your 3 favourite tastes?
Sushi :D, cherries and well, vinegar XD.
14. What is your most treasured possession?
My collection maybe XD? I'd be furious if anything happened to it...
15. What did you always want to be/do when you grew up?
I wanted to 'help make the world a better place' >:-). I suppose that'd mean an aid worker. Still considering it sometimes ;).
16. If you were an ice-cream what flavour would you be?
Vanilla, of course :-P. Maybe with some kind of cherry-raspberry syrup core...That sounds wonderful :).
17. If someone made a short film of your life, who would play you?
I'd play myself :-P.
If I have to pick someone else...Hmmm, which actress do you think I look like ;D?
18. What would your perfect afternoon consist of?
No idea, but it would include walking, rain, good music, lip balm and a great fragrance. These are present in most of my Precious Moments :).
19. If you were a flower, what would you be?
Wild cherry blossoms :-P.
20. Tell me a random thing....Be it your favourite line from a song, scene from a movie or quote from a book.....Tell me about something that you love.....
"It's not a question, if I can fight by your side, and withstand anything, but I forgot that you said, 'Girl, if you come, you gotta bring your own sun'."
It doesn't even really make sense, does it? But I love this song. Love the album too. Thanks for reading :).
