Matte Lip Cream in Pillarbox; Jumbo Wind Up Lips in Manic Pink; Eyeshadow Duo in Pink and Purple; Lipstick in Perfect Pink; Matte Lipstick in NYC Matte Red
While I was in Melbourne over the weekend, I managed to pop into Big W, which was excellent, because all the Big Ws here in Sydney are far, far from my place!
I ducked in JUST to get the much talked about Boe Beauty products that's been circulating on social media recently, and I ended up buying five items!
In total, I procured:
1) Matte Lip Cream in Pillarbox
2) Jumbo Wind Up Lips in Manic Pink
3) Eyeshadow Duo in pink and purple
4) Lipstick in Perfect Pink
5) Matte Lipstick in NYC Matte Red
For all of the above, I spent a hefty $10, at $2 a pop!

I got some swatches for you guys too! They are as above, from left to right.
So, just what's the verdict? I haven't properly tested the eye shadows on my lids yet, but I didn't mind the way they felt when I swatched them, aside from that they were a little powdery.
While the matte lip cream comes out beautifully, it doesn't quite dry down on the lips, and ends up still a little sticky, which is somewhat disappointing.
The Jumbo Wind Up Lips is reasonably sheer, but does add a bit of colour. However, it leaves the lips feeling a little tacky. The lipstick, while pale, is actually reasonably pigmented, but also a little drying.
My favourite out of them all has to be the matte lipstick - glides on, stains the lips and is just so pretty! I wish I could find it in a bunch of other colours too.
Overall, I'm happy with two out of five items - not a bad experiment for $10.
