Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee | review w/ swatches !




HELLO GUYS!

I'm sure you've heard of the Revlon lip butters by now. If no - it's been raved about by many youtube gurus and bloggers. A lot of bloggers have claimed that this is the new thing, a revolutionary product and what not. Do I agree?




ABOUT THE PRODUCT


First of all. No I don't agree with it being this revolutionary product, and the whole "it's like nothing I've ever tried" I don't get. I don't want to sound like I'm bashing the product, though because it's still a great product. To me, this is a sheer glossy lipstick, it has something of a glaze finish. It is not sticky, and feels rather nice on the lips. I don't find it moisturising or hydrating, but it's not drying either. The product has a tendency to melt if left in direct sunlight, so be careful with that and the packaging is quite nice, and colour coded depending on the lipstick which makes the shades easier to find. The shade is a sheer medium orange with no shimmer.


 


BOTTOM LINE


I quite like these lip butters. I do think they're overrated, though. They're nice to have, but in all honesty I prefer my other lipsticks. I'm not really a fan of tinted lip balms or sheer lipsticks. But that's just me, it's still a nice product. I quite like this one, but it has a bit of a dull tint to it, I personally like using this with creamsicle for that perfect nude lip.



 That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!

ELF Studio Baked Blush in PEACHY CHEEKY | Review w/ Swatches !




HELLO GUYS!

I have been meaning to review this blush for quite a while. 
I think these ELF baked blushes have had quite the hype. 
Did it wow me though? 


 

 

 

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

The packaging is very nice and I like that it's see through. 
The blush itself is quite creamy and not at all powdery or chalky. 
It lasts fairly a long time on me - a good 4-6 hours with minimal fading (I have dry skin though.)
The shade is a sheer slightly frosty peachy golden shade. 



BOTTOM LINE

It's a nice blush. But it does lean on the frosty side, 
which is not something that appeals to me. 
It's still quite a pretty color though, 
and I'm glad I got to try it.

 That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!

MUA intense eyeliner in royal blue | review w/ swatches !




HELLO GUYS!

As you probably know,
I got so many MUA products recently with their promotional codes..
and these liners have been in my collection for over 3 months now -
and I have had the opportunity to test them out throughout these three months.









Here's what I think -

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

Sleek, nice packaging. Sharpener is built-in in the cap,
which could be a disadvantage
because it may lead to the eyeliner drying up.
 The actual eyeliner is creamy and quite pigmented.
It needs setting, so it is not longlasting on its own,
but they're great to be used as bases, which is what I bought them for. 
 It does draw on the waterline, but doesn't last due to the creaminess. 
The shade is a deep bright blue. I love this colour and its pigmentation!


BOTTOM LINE

A great eyeliner to use as a base or to powder,
it's quite creamy, 
and they have some really nice colours to choose from.
If you're looking for bases / looking for a cheap eyeliner
which you won't mind powdering. 


I hope this somehow helps. 
Remember - make up is art
If you think you can rock it don't let anyone tell you it doesn't look good.

LIPSTICK DIARIES #39 | VIVO Naturally Nude + SLEEK Peaches and Cream | Green Cut Crease & BLING BLING !





HELLO GUYS!


I have bad news. A blog is stealing my full posts and reposting them.
I shared the link on my facebook page and twitter.
Action has already been taken and hopefully they'll close the blog down.

Anywho:
As you can tell, I'm enjoying the cut crease look at the moment-
and this time round I wanted to do a green-toned one with glitter. 

I paired it with VIVO's lipstick in naturally nude 
and SLEEK's true colour lipstick in Peaches & Cream
because I found the first one too light for the look.

NYX matte lipstick in MLS05 Indie Flick | review w/ swatches!




HELLO GUYS!
I had originally fell in love with NYX's matte lipstick, and I still am, 
but then I decided to buy a couple more shades. 

I actually featured these in a video which you can check out below. 


Today I will be focusing on Indie Flick







PACKAGING
Sleek black packaging, with a see-through part. 
Risky packaging, if I might say, 
because packaging similar to this is quite hard to master. 
It often looks cheap and unappealing. 
But this one doesn't.


TEXTURE
A silky-smoothe texture,
that glides onto your lips like a dream.


PIGMENTATION
VERY pigmented. 
It might even stain your lips after some time.



SCENT
No detectable scent.


FINISH
Matte. 
totally matte. 
But not drying or anything. 




LASTING POWER 
Needs reapplying after several hours (around 5)
but lasts a very long time. 

SHADE
A bright orange shade




BOTTOM LINE
Even though I love the shade and formula, I don't find myself reaching for this, 
perhaps I will do in summer since it's more of a shade that reminds me of that season.


That's it for this post!
Hope this was helpful!

Take care dolls !

ELF mineral eyeshadow in natural | review w/ swatches !



HELLO GUYS!

I'm on a roll preparing ELF reviews today, 
and this is one of them. 
I've been in love with ELF mineral eyeshadows for a while, 
and I decided to get one more shade.




ABOUT THE PRODUCT
As with all loose powders, they could give quite a lot of fallout, 
but if you tap off the excess, 
that ought to solve the fallout issue. 
This is a very pigmented and frosty eyeshadow, 
but it's beautiful, 
it has almost a metallic hue, 
it has a peachy yellow-tint and it's a great all over the lid shade.





BOTTOM LINE
I love this eyeshadow, my favourite mineral eyeshadow in angelic though, 
it's the most beautiful highlighter for that doll like highlight.


That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!

REVIEW | TRES EMME Restructuring Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment Masque !




HELLO GUYS!
I don't know about you, but I'm so drawn to the beauty sector at supermarkets.
They lure me, they scream my name and hypnotise me to buy stuff.
I love buying hair products, and I use them quiet often actually.
This one I use almost everytime I wash my hair.





ABOUT THE PRODUCT

This has a very thick consistency, almost jelly-like, and a really nice smell.
I love that its a tub, so you can easily scoop out product and use all of it without having to rinse it or anything.
Has this really helped my hair though?
I've been using this over 8 months now,
so I should know.
It has, I promise you , it has. In fact - this product might have been the product that saved my hair back when I dyed my hair back to brown. My hair lost its gloss, it looked dry and very dull, and this truly helped with giving my hair life again. I apply this after I shampoo my hair, squeeze out the excess water and apply it generously. I leave it for about 4-5 minutes and rinse off. And my hair's good as new.


BOTTOM LINE

Honestly, I'm in love with this product, it works far better than any random conditioner I've tried. I don't use it everytime I wash my hair. But I use it like 4/5 times I wash my hair. I've repurchased twice, and will continue to repurchase, for sure. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!


 That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!

LIPSTICK DIARIES #38 | MUA's LMK ! + the darkest lip I've ever worn out !



HELLO GUYS!
I have another Lipstick Diaries post today. 
This time round I'm wearing the darkest lip colour I've ever worn in public!
And when I'm telling you dark, this is seriously dark!
It's not black.. 
but it's not that far from black. 

I used MUA's lip boom in LMK 
(As you know I love the lipsticks that come with the lip booms!).
This lipstick I never really intended to wear when I initially bought it.
  I only wanted to add some dark colours to my kit.
But I felt in this creative mood, 
and decided to wear it out anyway. 
I kept the eyes rather neutral, 
but not dull .. 
and used some warm eyeshadows round the eyes to counteract with the 
cool tones of the lipstick.
