Lippie and car magnet

Well I got both of my packages today and I am very excited to report back. I'll start with the lippie.

It arrived in a cute little box and when I took it out it looked almost exactly like an oversized orange crayon with a cap. *gasp* Orange- what?! Yeah, I ordered joy with looked like a light peach on the site, but when I opened it I was looking at this crazy orange crayon.


Well I decided to give it a chance and it's actually ok. On the skin, it's not nearly as scary orange as it looks:


On my lips it ads some color and really makes them pop while at the same time avoiding the clown look. Now, as for the stain and "6000% moisture" claims... I can't say much about that yet. It did feel a lot more moisturizing when I applied it, but it was a little remniscent of a lipstick. The moisture stayed and was fairly good for awhile, but I applied it about 45 minutes ago, and while my lips aren't dry-dry, they do feel a little dusty, so a gloss is going to be necessary when using this. All in all, I like it and will order more- maybe their light pink next.

Ok! Now the magnet! I am super, super excited about this! I got it today and am really impressed. It came in a pretty large box and when I opened it up, the magnet was carefully wrapped in saranwrap and then taped to the inside of the box to keep it from bouncing around and possibly damaging the corners. Once I (finally) got it free of it's wrappings, I was shocked. For the price I paid, I was kind of expecting a piece of paper that had been printed on, cut out, and then glued to a magnet. That is sooooo NOT what I got, and I'm really grateful. Instead, I got a wonderfully durable feeling and heavy duty magnet that appears to have had the images printed directly onto it's surface. While I am mildly dissapointed with the pixelation of the picture on it, I'm not surprised. I gave them a small picture- blowing it up that big it was bound to pixel some. Anywho- the magnet is pretty sturdy and attaches well to my truck(and fridge-lol) I'm not concerned about loosing it on the freeway or in the city.


Yeah.... I am really impressed with this magnet, and excited about using it come blizzcon. And I totally refer anyone who is interested in their very own magnet to go check out the folks at They have a pretty awesome customization process that is incredibly user friendly, and shipping options for everyone.

  1. I do realize that the picture of the magnet on the truck looks like shit. sorry! I can guarantee it does not look like that RL. The camera took a really big picture and instead of uploading then linking, I just used my client to drag and then shrink.
