Thoughts On The Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks

I've been collecting some of these lipsticks to try them out over a few months and l've decided to do a little review on them.

So Let's Begin ...

All of these lipsticks come in black packaging with a silver band around the middle with the words Rimmel London engraved on to it . It also has the Rimmel symbol embossed on the top of it .

Amethyst Shimmer

Love the Amethyst Shimmer, its a real purple /Pink colour which suits pale skin and most skin types, just wear foundation with it or it will look weird. 
l feel like its an Autumn colour so l don't know if l could wear it in the summer but l will probably find some way to wear it. I would love to pair it with a black dress and have it as a statement lip. I think Its a real classy colour .
The lipstick its very easy to apply and very pigmented with A lot of  Shimmer , also very moist on the lips. Definitely a winner :) 

Pink Blush 

I've only tried on this a few times, I thought it was okay. Its a very barbie pink  when you swatch it but when I put it on it was a nude pink a bit more drier than the Amethyst Shimmer which is probably the reason l don't wear it much , l don't really like wearing dry lipsticks too often. 
It's matte when you apply it on to the lips so l would advise people to moisturise and exfoliate your lips so you get the perfect look with this.  I would rate this as an okay lipstick.

Drops of Sherry 

I bought this a few weeks back , l love it , lt kinda matches my own lips so great for a subtle lippy for interviews or lf you just want something on , It has the same texture as the Amethyst Shimmer , creamy but instead of shimmery , its more frosty but still one of my faves. I love the rose colour of this lipstick very elegant. I give it a smiley Face :) 

Okay well that's it , l think the lasting power of these are good, l'd say a few hours, l think you would probably need to bring these with you to top up. Colours are creamy except for the pink blush. 
On the whole not disappointed

Thank you so much for reading my blog and will be back with another one next week  and lf you would like to follow me you can on the right of this page by adding me or by following me by email :)

Tips For Cakey or Separating Foundations

For years l avoided wearing foundation , l have dry skin and everytime l put it on my face , my cheeks would be okay but on my t-zone l would get speckles of foundation , it almost looked like my foundation was separating on my skin , I couldn't fix it and in the end l didn't wear it and l used to envy anyone who could.

I then decided last year l really wanted to wear it so l researched it online and all of the websites and forums l came across said to wear primers but none of the primers worked , l think lt was about 5 months ago l came across a youtuber/make up artist Wayne Goss and in one of his videos he was talking about micro exfoliation, where you can exfoliate by using a brush or your hands lf your rubbing your skin too much , so he said to use a sponge and do a tapping motion so that you're blending and pressing the foundation/primer into your skin instead of buffing which causes the speckled foundation.

So these are my tips 

  1. Tap or press in your moisturiser 
  2. Wait 10 mins 
  3. Any excess can be removed by pressing a soft cloth against your face
  4. After ten mins , you can apply your primer by tapping motion
  5. Same as before wait 5 till 10 mins for it to sink in 
  6. On to the foundation , I start from the inside out from my nose outward, keep tapping and pressing the foundation in , start with a light layer and build up if needed but if too much is applied it can look cakey so start off with a small amount 
  7. For any bronzers, highlighters or blushes you will have to blend them in but this can be done by gently tapping it , remember start of light you can build it up if you need more and remember its harder to remove it lf you have too much.
  8. You have to exfoliate your skin before you do any foundation to get rid of all the dead skin cells and to have the perfect foundation it is a good idea to moisturise everyday.

I hope my tips help you and thank you so much for reading my blog, if you would like to read more blogs of mine follow me by entering your email on the right in the follow me by email box.

My First Mac Lipsticks (First impressions)

Mac Red
 in satin finish

Pigeon Pink
in a matte finish

My first impression of these lipsticks are very good , l do think they are very dry compared to my other lipsticks but the colour payoff is worth it. l feel like they really stick out and are true to colour. 

I didn't realise until l bought them that the packaging has a little bit of sparkle when you shine the light on it .
I have also noticed there is a nice smell of them , l don't know what it is but my sister said they kind of smell like chocolate.

So that's my first impressions of this lipstick. l can't wait to wear them so l can give you a full review of them.

Slimming World Meals From Iceland -Hot Smoked Farfalle Review

So on Monday , l was in Iceland just doing the normal grocery shopping and l noticed they had a lot of slimming world meals and l've heard people talking about them so l wanted to pick some slimming world stuff up . I picked up two soups and one meal . The meals are on the more expensive side 4 euros each . I didn't want to pick up loads of them and then find out l didn't like them so l got one.

To be honest l didn't like them , l found the pasta to be overcooked , parts of the salmon were a bit tough , some of the peas were mushy and some were not , lt just didn't taste nice and the texture was really bad.
 I think the problem with these ready meals is everything is cooking at the same time and some things cook quicker than others. If l had of made this myself it would of been better because you'd put ingredients in at different times.
It wasn't awful though , l ate it , l just wouldn't buy them again but the great thing is about these you have the recipe at the back of the packaging so you can make it yourself. 

Not a great product but for a ready meal it was okay, I can't wait to try the soups to see what they taste like .I will do a review on the pea and mint soups next .

Thank you so much for reading my review and lf you want me to do more of these please comment down below :)

Zoeva Lux Lipstick -Melting Kisses Review

The colour of this lipstick is a pinkish peach but when you put it on its more peach than pink.

This looks really good on cool toned or fair skin , It suits my complexion very well.

It has the same feel as the Cooling Passion from Zoeva , its creamy and very moisturising to the lips. 
I always put a lip liner with this , just to make it look put together.

I like the packaging of the Zoeva Lipsticks , they are dark silver and have a magnetic lid which is a lovely touch to these lipsticks.

Thank you for reading my review , lf you like this review and want to read more please follow me

Zoeva Lux Lipstick- Cooling Passion Review

 This lipstick is a lovely red  , its not too dark and not too light on the lips , l would call it a medium red.  It goes really well on its own with subtle eye make up. Its a matte red which is great if you don't like shimmery lipsticks.

The packaging is lovely , l like the way its magnetic so when you go to put the lid back on it just clicks 

I love Zoeva , l have so many products from them so l definitely recommend them.
