Revlon Colour Rush Balm - Give Me A Cuddle Review.


I basically bought this product on a whim. I was never into the Revlon lip butters, Bourjois colour boost lip crayons or the clinique chubby sticks. In fact this is my first lip balm that I've bought in a long time! I think the only thing close to this that I own is the Jelly Pong Pong lip crayon that came free in one of my Glossy boxes. *hides face in shame*

You can buy the Revlon colour rush balm's in 7 different shades. I went for 'Give Me A Cuddle' how cute is that name? I'm a sucker for a good name. Nothing bugs me more than just a number. Give Me A Cuddle is a pale pink balm as you can see in the pictures above. Sorry that there isn't a swatch (fake tan arms doesn't compliment it very well).  The balm is super moisturising, with a great pigmentation to say its a balm and left my lips feeling hydrated all night long. I did re-apply quite a few times, but when do we go out and not have to re-apply our lippies girls? That's something that will never happen, unless you have some kind of cosmetic tattoo done on your lips haha.

I've recently read quite a lot of reviews from beauty bloggers that didn't really rate these balms, but I couldn't fault it and I'll definitely be picking up some new colours. Especially with the summer coming in :) The scent of these crayons smell amazing too! Kinda reminded me of cupcakes or something really sweet.

Purchased from Boots store for just £5.99

Have you tried any of the Revlon Colour Rush Balms before? 
What did you think if so?

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick 26.

  Just another nude SHOCK

So when I went to Meadowhall shopping with some of my work friends recently, I popped in Boots for a new lipstick. I did go in there thinking I was going to buy a pink or coral... Something different to nude anyway.
Duh, duh, duhhhhhhh!
We have another nude to add to the collection!

This lipstick is part of Kate Moss's 2nd lipstick range and just costing £5.49 a lipstick, you cannot refuse. Not the when you say in your head 'well a MAC lipstick would cost me £15' that's the way I work when I'm shopping I just tell myself I can have everything by just comparing it to pricier things haha. The 2nd range of lipsticks appear to be a lot lighter than the first lipsticks that were brought out, more wearable throughout the day for me as I can't really pull off a dark lip in the day time.

Pros
Great pigmentation
Affordable
Smells nice
Perfect consistency 
Moisturising on the lips (always ex-foliate before wearing lipsticks though or use a balm)

Cons
I had to re-apply this lipstick quite a few times throughout the day

Finish: semi matte & opaque

What Kate Said:
"Whilst I'll always have my favourite timeless shades, I love to update my lipstick to reflect the new season's style. I wanted to play with fresh and darling colour to create a look that's fun and feminine with an edge."


heres a picture of me wearing the lipstick :)
it's the perfect shade for everyday wear


Have you tried any of these lipsticks before?

Benefit - Primping With The Stars.


Inside the most gorgeous packaging reveals 6 sample sized products from the Benefit range varying from lip tints to pore reducers. You can purchase this set from the Benefit website or in your nearest Boots store for just £26.50. I received mine as a birthday present from my sister, thank youuuu! I can't believe I'm 23! I got the most gorgeous vanity table from my parents as well. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you'll know what I'm on about ha.

So inside we have ...

Some Kind Of Gorgeous - foundation (medium)
I was dead excited when I opened the little box to see a sample of this foundation inside. I've seen sooooo many blog posts about it and I've always been intrigued by how it works and applies. I was shocked when I went to swatch the little gem and it just melted on my finger. When I applied the foundation to my face it wasn't cakey in the slightest and was buildable in coverage with a sheer finish. It's known to be a creamy to powder type of foundation?
Full price - £24.50

Girl Meets Pearl - Illuminator
Looking to add a little glow to your face that's not too extreme? This one works wonders! You can apply this underneath or on top of your foundation. I like to mix mine with my foundation to give that 'glow' to my every day foundation routine as I don't really like the matte look as it makes my skin look dried out. If I don't use this one then I use my L'Oreal lumi magique. I'm like a magpie when I see something that can highlight or illuminate my skin. The design of this product reminds me of the paige toon books, especially Lucy In The Sky? Anyone that's read the book will know what I mean.
Full price - £24.50

The PoreFessional - Primer
Suffer with large pores? This product could be for you! Although it didn't work for me... When I applied this product to my T zone it kind of crumbled all over my face. Kind of like someone had sprinkled dandruff all over my face in fact! 
I definitely wouldn't pay the full price for this product. I'd love to find something to reduce the size of my pores though, preferably some kind of skincare treatment rather than make up.
Full price - £24.50

Stay Don't Stray - Primer
This primer is mainly used for concealers and eyeshadows. It helps to keep your eye make up in one place. I love a good eye primer! As they make eyeshaows appear more vibrant, gives your eyes that POP of colour. I've used this primer previously and it's really good! Although I haven't found one that keeps every mascara in place yet. 
Full price - £20.50

They're Real - Mascara
Who hasn't heard of this mascara? If you haven't you've definitely been living under a rock! I've seen it everywhere and anywhere. To say how much I've seen this about it never really caught my eye as I previously had the 'Benefit - Bad Gal' mascara and thought it was really rubbish! Especially for the price. When I tried it out on Tuesday I was quite shocked by how good it were and I was super happy to see a small mascara applicator! I can't stand the big ones... it makes it soooo hard to apply. I loved how it made my lashes look, but it did appear to have another set of eyelashes on my skin after 2 hours! nightmare. If I could find a good primer I'd wear this everyday without fail.
Full Price - £19.50

Benetint in Rose
I've already got this Benetint in Rose which I got in a magazine.You can use this product to tint the lips or to the cheeks for a natural flush of colour. I don't really get on with this product to be honest I'm more of a lipgloss and blusher type of girl, but I know there's a lot of people that love it. I've seen some gorgeous pictures of the new tint in 'lollitint' recently on Instagram/Twitter etc. it looks super pretty! But no way ho zay would I pay the full price for this lip tint. naaah ahhh. 
Full price - £24.50

I've really enjoyed this little box of Benefit goodies so far and I look forward to reaching back to certain products especially over the summer. There's a couple of other products from Benefit that I'm lusting after such as the Hoola bronzing powder, the Bo-Ing industrial strength concealer and the Refined finish facial polish. Oh! And there body oil mists look amazing too! Too many pretty products I want to try.

Topshop Wishlist.

SHELLY cutout back platforms - £60.00
Lets just take a moment to appreciate how gorgeous these shoes actually are.
NEED. NEED. NEED.
I just hope they feel good on the feet!
 
MOTO Gingham Print Joni Jeans - £38.00
Who doesn't love a super high waisted jean? Especially in this print.
 
Tailored Lightweight Coat - Pale Pink - £75.00
I'm currently in love with this style of coat and I think it would compliment the figure without looking too baggy. It would also be perfect for everyday wear or to pop over your outfit on a night out. It's either this one or the pale blue one in Zara... decisions!
 
Lip Bullet in Winegum - £8.00
How lovely is the colour of this lip bullet? I think this would look gorgeous anytime of day.
 
So there we have my current Topshop lust list. Not everything I want is on here as I'd have to make around 20 collage's! 
I'll have to wait and see what birthday bunny is going to bring me on Tuesday though eyy? :) Although I don't really look forward to birthdays anymore, as the feeling of getting older sucks! I'm going to be 23!! :o
 
Is there anything you're lusting for in Topshop at the minute?
