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!

Maybelline Baby Lips.. Finally!


20130816-200956.jpg

I had read on a few blogs that Maybelline had finally released their infamous ‘baby lips’ in the UK and I had been keeping my eyes peeled for them but hadn’t seen them until now!

I really wanted to try them because I always seem to have dry lips and I love a bit of tint.. Not to mention anything that smells good, on my lips! These seemed like the perfect token!

20130816-201005.jpg

The packaging seems a bit flimsy and not really the kind that I’d happily whip out when meeting the Queen as its loud and bright (not to mention a bit flimsy) however, I don’t mind! I can tell I’m not paying for packaging because the product is cheap so I understand their thinking!

When choosing the colours I had a choice between Cherry Me and Peaches because they were the only colours that appealed to me however, I wanted to try just the one for now so being an avid fan of the Haribo Cherries, I chose Cherry Me!

Ok.. The smell! I CAN’T EVEN EXPLAIN! I want to eat it! It has that typical candy cherry scent! If you’ve ever had Cherry Drops, Cherry penny sweets or anything sweet cherry flavoured, you’ll understand! I love the fact that once I’ve got it on my lips and whilst I’m applying, people ask what smells so good!

20130816-201016.jpg

The colour isn’t super pigmented but I like the sheer colour it does have! It’s almost transparent apart from a very light red hue that you notice once you look hard!

The moisturising factor is mediocre! Nothing uber drenching or anything but I like the finish which isn’t super glossy or super matte! You could literally wear this with any makeup look and it would suit adequately!

20130816-201010.jpg

All in all, I’m a big fan! I really like these and I know I’ll get through this ‘Cherry Me’ one in no time! So I’ll be sure to try some more soon!

Baby lips are £2.99 from Boots or Superdrug

Barry M in TMLP (turn my lips pink)
A melanin changing lip colour that adjusts differently on every person. It’s a moisturising pink colour that goes deeper as you do (when tanning etc) Lasts really well because it’s a stain.

My top 10 beauty tips


Starting with good skin, you need to use a face mask! If you don’t use an intensive treatment like a mask on your face at least once a week, your skin will look dull and blotchy thus, making your make up look the same!

20130412-120120.jpg

Also, I always exfoliate my skin! Whether its using a facial brush or my face wash (which comes with scrublets), I feel like exfoliating really helps make your skin look new.. Even if you’re not!

20130412-120209.jpg

Curl your lashes before you go to bed (when you have no make up on), before you apply mascara in the morning and after your mascara is 100% dry! It will really help to change the way your lashes grow and they’ll naturally start to curl!

20130412-120409.jpg

Always use nourishing treatment on your hair.. Even if its once a week. Using conditioner or oiling your hair will really help repair it. If you use heat regularly, you’re basically frying your hair.. Just like you would put a plaster on your skin to let it heal, your hair shouldn’t be treated any different!

20130412-120412.jpg

When shaping your eye brows.. Whether you tweeze, wax, thread or shave, fill them in like you do on a daily basis and then remove the hair around that shape. That way, you won’t over-pluck!

20130412-120620.jpg

Keep lip balms around you! In your pocket, handbag, desk, bedroom, downstairs, upstairs and even in your car! You always need lip balm when you don’t have it so buy a few and delegate them everywhere you hang out cause you can never have too over moisturised lips!

20130412-120624.jpg

With summer coming, most people will be wearing sandals a lot! You don’t have to use a tonne of money to buy a foot scrub or pumice stone! Go into your garden or park and find a brick (carefully smash its face in on the hard ground really subtly and casually) and use one of the pieces to scrub off your dead skin. Alternatively find a rough edged stone!

20130412-121002.jpg

Sometimes when I’m having a really bad day, I like to paint my nails only to notice my nails look chipped and horrible! Pushing your cuticals back with a blunt butter knife or the edge of a nail file will help to show a little more nail and makes your nail varnish and nails look so crisp and neat.. Who knew there was so much nail under those claws?

20130412-121008.jpg

This is gross.. But don’t be afraid to pick! That’s right.. I’m talking about spots! Most spots have heads (a gooey puss filled delicious centre) or a small hole in them! Those are the spots you should pick! Leaving them trapped under your skin makes them bigger and often hurt! Gently squeeze them out and then let your skin do the healing!

20130412-121431.jpg

If you want your teeth to be whiter, try to drink your hot drinks with a straw or before you brush your teeth! As soon as any dark liquid comes in contact with your teeth, it stains them which is a huge no- go in my books! Your smile should look bright and clean just like its essence!

20130412-121421.jpg

If you’re beautiful (which I think everyone is in their own individual way), embrace your natural beauty! I love seeing confident women out and about with little or no make up on without a care in the world! It’s empowering and a breath of fresh air!

THE BEST LIPSTICK IN THE WORLD!!!


A new product that I’ve been LOVING recently is this lipstick from Barry M! Now if you live outside of the UK, you may find this a little hard to come across but it’s AMAZING! I’ve found some fantastic dupes listed below!

20120908-200110.jpg

The genius of it? IT’S GREEN! Or is it? This lipstick actually changes colour depending on the pH balance of your lips and turns a pink colour when applied! It’s magic! This one will turn heads when you pull a GREEN lipstick out your bag!

20120908-200150.jpg

I’ve been wearing this non-stop recently and it’s a completely new to me but as my mum pointed out, this stuff has been around for YEARS! In fact, she remembers purchasing this over 20 years ago before I was born! It was quite the thing during the 80s/ 90s and apparently you could get this for the dollar store!

20120908-200354.jpg

This particular one is by Barry M and is in the TMLP which cleverly stands for.. Turn My Lips Pink! Clever ehy? I like the small and simple packaging too! Perfect to put in your bag!

20120908-200133.jpg

The best thing about the Barry M one is that it’s so cheap! It costs £4.49 from Boots or Superdrug! I think the colour would look GREAT on anyone!

20120908-201044.jpg20120908-201049.jpg

You could wear this colour no matter what your skin tone and it is quite moisturising too! And because it adjusts to your own pH balance, it will suit you!

Here’s a dupe by Fran Wilson which is raved about a lot!
