I wanted some new lipsticks, but I’m a different colour to pink so I opted to try out this nudey pinky cour from Revlon. It’s called 354!cappuccino

I love the packaging of this lipstick, it doesn’t look cheap at all. It looks really chic, especially taking it out of your handbag, it makes you feel fancier!

It’s a shimmery nudey, pink which goes gorgeous with a tan and a smokey eye. It’s a really nice colour to wear to work as it doesn’t dry out, so when it begins to wear off you don’t have that dreaded circle around the edge of your lips.

It’s so silky and smooth it’s so nice to apply. It feels moisturising on your lips and as I mentioned previously it doesn’t dry them out whatsoever.

It has good lasting power, but like most lipsticks would need to be touched up after eating.

I’m really glad I picked this one up and I can’t wait to try more lipsticks from this range soon!

Continuing along with my Top Three Spring.. theme, I decided to do lipsticks! You can check out what l chose for polish here . My lips have been so dry and sore lately, so sadly I’ve been using a tonne of lip balm, but let’s discuss my three picks!

As you can probably tell from the photos I like pink/red type lipsticks, but I am branching out. These are my favourite colour shades for Spring though. The three are from different ends of the spectrum too, so I have one that cost less than €2 to one that cost €22 so I don’t stick to either high street or high end.

Firstly there is one from Avon now I forget what the type of lipstick this is, I got it ages ago but I do know it’s in the shade Peach Peck it’s a beautiful peachy colour, it’s really buildabe so you can have it really bright or just sheer on your lips. It does have a bit of shimmer, but it’s not over the top, it’s quite subtle. The lipstick itself has a good consistency, it’s really smooth and glides on my lips. It does have a good staying power, but with lipsticks, it does need to be topped up once in a while! Overall I think this is a perfect colour for Spring because it’s so light, it brightens up your make up!

Next we have a MAC lipstick in Creme Cup. as I’ve said multiple times on this blog I’ve wanted it for ages and I’ve had it since January but pinks are my favourite colour for everything so I adore this. I’d wear it every single day of my life. It’s a beautiful pink colour, have I said that enough? It’s not shimmery and not matte either. It has the most beautiful consistency and lasts ages. I am in love with this lipstick! It goes with everything and is just so perfect for this time of year.

Lastly from the bunch is from MUA and is in the shade Touch Up. This is a nude colour and isn’t too dark yet isn’t too bright. I think a good nude lip looks lovely, especially if you’re brightening your blush or eyeshadow colours, you don’t want to look like a clown! This is also not shimmery or matte, it’s just nice. The consistency is again, brilliant and it lasts long too! It glides on my lips hassle free, and if it wears off, no one really notices!

I hope you guys like the three colours I’ve chosen! What are you’re favourite colour lipsticks for Spring?

A new love…

After seeing is lipstick feature in countless blogs, I knew I needed it. Not I wanted it, I had to have it! The first impression I had was that it was just the perfect pink. I am a lover of pink everything, from lips, cheeks, to clothes, bags. everything

I decided to buy it at the airport because it was the only time I was near a M.A.C seller, other thank going into the city to buy it or buy it online. There was no tester but I had to take the chance. I opened it up straight away and fell in love instantly.

I like the consistentency better than the matte lipsticks from M.A.C, it doesn’t feel as if it’s drying my lips out. It gives a nice, to me, a dewy finish. It looks quite natural.

The colour payoff is incredible. It’s so beautiful, without being too much. One coat is usually all I use, though if you wanted a more vibrant colour you could definitely layer it up. I think it lasts quite a long time so I don’t feel myself topping it up every twenty minutes, which I’m pleased about.

I like wearing it as a fresh daytime colour, but I think it’s so classic I’d wear it at nighttime too with a dramatic smokey eye.

I would like to try other lipsticks from the Cremesheen range and if you have any suggestions which ones I could try, tell me 🙂
