Revlon UltraHD matte lip colour

We all know I am the biggest sucker for lipsticks, so when something new and shiny is in my face I’m going to get it!

Not many people love matte lipsticks, most of the time they’re drying, they start to peel and crack and unfortunately anything long lasting is usually quite drying. Regardless I always like to give them a go, especially when the packaging looks like this and the lipstick is so fragrant it’s like licking a lolly, so if you’re not a huge fan of fragrant lipsticks, it might not be for you.

Whenever I see what new lipsticks are out, I always look at how many different shades there are and in this collection there are 8 shades and of course being the dark lip colour lover I am I grabbed 610HD addcition, a burgundy colour and 600HD Devotion, a mauve colour.

The pigment in this lipstick is great, it glides on super easily and building up the colour doesn’t seem to be a problem. It also holds up pretty well without any lip liner underneath or even around the lips, so bleeding of the lipstick doesn’t happen. The best part it’s actually quite long lasting and not drying at all. I normally find my lips are sucked dry like a prune by the end of the day, but I love how the gel formula moisturises my lips as well.

Although matte, it doesn’t look as matte as other lipsticks on the lips, I find it quite velvety and yes transfer occurs. It currently retails for $23.95 AUD each but definitely worth it. Colour in packaging is also quite true to what you see once applied.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of these new lipsticks and which ones you have. Not going to lie, was tempted to buy all of them.

Skin after Easter: Foreo Luna review

I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that I’ve had way too many chocolates over this Easter break and what happens when you eat too much chocolate, you break out, well for me at least.

This blog post today, is all about my new favourite cleansing tool for my face. I am currently in love with the Foreo Luna for combination skin. Now I have been eyeing this baby out for years and I never could completely commit because it was just so out of my price range. It currently retails for $249 AUD but I do know the mini ones are $179 AUD. I found this on sale at David Jones for 30% off and you bet I jumped up and down with excitement and monkey gripped that thing until I took it to the register. Sometimes I really love sale time!

I decided to grab the Foreo Luna because even thought the mini is so cute and travel convenient, I love how the flipside of the Foreo Luna helps with the ageing process. One side is great for cleansing and getting rid of all the dirt, sweat and makeup that’s stuck in you pores but the other side helps with anti ageing just by placing them on specific points of your face, they recommend 12 seconds for each spot. I figured with a 10 year quality guarantee that when I start to get older, I will be loving this a lot more for my face and if you didn’t know that when you hit 25 years of age that’s when your anti ageing products come into play. So look for products that are global anti ageing, then you’ll know you’re covered.

When I first used this I noticed an immediate difference, my skin looked a lot more radiant and fresh. Not only did it cleanse effectively, I worry less about those little expression lines. I also realised how much makeup I was missing when washing my face with just my hands. My skin also felt super soft that I had to refrain myself from touching it. It also has 8 different speeds. A good guide I like to tell people when using cleansing tools is that the slower the speed the deeper the cleanse and the faster the speed the more superficial or on top cleansing it is.

I love how it’s 100% waterproof, non porous which means no bacteria sticks onto it, gentle on my skin and what really is amazing is that once fully charged (which only took up to one hour), you can use it up to a year before it needs to be fully charged again.

If anybody is thinking about getting this product, I highly recommend it, best life decision you will ever make and even if you’re unsure, check out the reviews on their website. Don’t forget, the cleaner your skin, the better your products will absorb.

Hopefully you’ve enjoyed this post and found out some useful information and I’ll be back with another blog soon.

Love, Caroline xx.

How I get fresh glowing skin

I think one of the best parts of my job, tiring as it is, is the fact that I get to try new products and when it comes to getting your glow on, I’m just all over that!

Somebody wise once told me that, nobody ever says wow, you’ve got beautiful, matte skin and I’m pretty sure I laughed so hard because it’s just too true, you really don’t. We all talk about that beautiful healthy glow and I mean who doesn’t want to look fresh and pretend that they eat healthy food all the time. The very first time I put this product on my face I instantly fell in love.

With a lot of products I try for the first time, I always think I’m in love with them in the beginning but then I realise it’s just not good for me in the end, like the 2 donuts I had today. I am currently using Red earth’s Illuminating Loose Powder in 01 Pearl.  This product is just amazing and unlike the bad donut decision, I don’t regret this at all.

I am a powder setter, I always finish my makeup off with powder no matter loose or pressed I pack that stuff on because it’s the only way I know my makeup will stay on throughout the day. This particular powder is so super fine that it makes your skin feel velvety soft, but even better once applied and blended throughout the skin, the luminosity appears instantly. I love how it comes with a powder puff because when you press powders into the skin, the better it sets your makeup. I team this powder up with Estee Lauder’s Double wear and for my skin it just works, not only does it look more flawless, but my skin really looks like it’s glowing.

It does also come in another shade and that is Magician which is more of a soft gold which works well on more warm tones. In saying that, there really isn’t too much colour once applied, but I can definitely see why they would have two because it can also be used on its’ own to help enhance radiance on bare skin but also used as a highlight. Make your cheekbones eat their heart out!

Let me know what your current favourite powder is or even if you’ve tried this one and until next time..

Byeeeee!!xx.

New lipsticks to the collection: Estee Lauder Liquid Lip Potion

The time has come where I need to change my storage for my lipsticks. I’m pretty sure I don’t use the half that I already have. I go through these phases where I like to wear one particular colour for a specific amount of time and then sometimes it just depends on my mood. I like to match my lipstick to my mood on the day.

My current obsession are these gorgeous Liquid lip potions by Estee Lauder.

I love the vibrancy of all 16 shades and each are extremely pigmented. I find these hydrating and although a liquid lipstick, I still notice how creamy the formula is, so it glides on so easily. I usually touch up my lips three times a day, once after I’ve had a coffee, after lunch and then around the late afternoon because people need to think that your lips look flawless even when you’re on your way home.

The only thing I do notice about this lipstick is that when the time comes to reapply and if you’re like me and unintentionally purse your lips together, there is a bit of build up on the inside where the lips meet. It’s also not and overly glossy lipstick, so don’t expect a high gloss finish, think more semi matte.

I also LOVE that these don’t bleed! As much as I love a good lip liner, sometimes a girl just doesn’t have time for that, so popping this on is really quick and easy for me. Even if you’re a fan of bright colours or you like the natural shades, there’s something for everybody.

Hopefully you’ve enjoyed this post and let me know if you’ve tried out any of these lippies and until next time…

Byeeee! xx.
