Top 5 Revlon products


When it comes to drugstore brands, there is one that that sticks out more than my others for having the best range of all types of products. Revlon excels in foundation (colour stay), lips (butters &lipsticks) and even eyes (grow luscious mascara). It seems as though everything they make, is a best seller.. I agree!

When it comes to lips, their lip butters are incredible! They are pigmented but sheer and they are super moisturising. Because they’re easy to glide on, you can stick these in your handbag and top up on the go. 2 of my favourite shades are the ones below:

I’m also crazy about Revlon lipsticks! If you’re looking for MAC lipsticks but don’t want to pay as much for them, Revlon do some great ones and in tonnes of shades! You can often find dupes for colours and finishes that MAC have. This pink lipstick is my absolute fave! I love this colour which is a soft pink that looks really nice and neutral. I love building it up and even rubbing it in for less colour on those days where you want to wear little makeup. It’s super creamy and moisturising. It also wears off beautifully leaving a stain, rather than a scummy white like like some lipsticks do! ** beware.. If you have a moustache, this lipstick will for sure make it look prominent (a lesson learnt for me the hard way).

These eyelashes believe it or not, were the first ever eyelashes I bought! I had worn false eyelashes before, after receiving them in monthly beauty boxes but I had never gone out to look for them until I found these! They are the best lashes I’ve ever tried! There are 4 in a pack and they’re well-priced. I love how natural they look on, how the end wings off but, not dramatically and I also like the thin band. I tried these lashes on many people and they all said they loved the way their lashes looked. If you wear fake eyelashes quite a lot, these are definitely super comfortable!

Last but by no means least, a favourite product which I’m sure a tonne of people would agree with me on.. Nail varnishes! Revlon are renowned for their wide range of colours and they also have some good varieties too such as their ‘Top Speed’ and ‘Colourstay’ lines. I really like this pink colour shown below. The pink shade just screams summer! It’s one of those shades that adds a splash if colour without being too neon or daring. It’s a lovely coral pink shade. The consistency is so thick and gel like, that one coat usually does the job for me. It really does dry in no time and I’ve noticed how glossy it looks too!

The Ritz!


20121205-162233.jpg

Today was an extremely exciting day for me! As a treat, my brother surprised me with an invite to the Ritz for afternoon tea! In his own words; “you like tea, so I thought why not?”. Couldn’t really argue with that so I went for it!

This kind of stuff is right up my street and I have never really been anywhere like this with my brother before so was really happy to share the experience with him!

So we began the morning at an hour I haven’t woken up in a month since I’ve been off work! I was awoken with a lovely text message urging me to wake up immediately and rolled out of bed! It took me ages to decide what to wear because I thought it would be a cold, wet and dreary day but as soon as we got out it was AMAZING weather!

My brother decided to not wear a whole suit because that would be a little too smart for the little casual yob! Instead he opted for a mismatched suit and trouser combo which I think looked highly adequate for the event :)

Jacket is from Zara
Suit jacket is VERY old and he doesn’t remember from where
The shirt is from Prada
The shoes are from Burton
The tie is from Zara
The scarf is from River Island
The underwear is from.. Got you!

I opted to go for simplicity so the only things worth mentioning are my ASOS leather lapel jacket and River Island boots (£7.50)!!!

After a hectic morning we parked the car (it took us 15 minutes to find a spot) and we then hopped on the train! After arriving, the weather was fantastic and the sun was shining brighter than ever!

Allow me to tell you the story in pictures..
