The trip was purposeful, sudocrem and a sandwich… I came out with two new lipsticks, an eyeliner and a new concealer… No regrets, we’ve all been there!
Revlon isn’t a brand I usually venture into for lip products, although the ones I own I love, so when I saw two for £10 I seized the chance to add more to my collection. The first and my favourite is “Carnival Spirit” a coral with a shine finish, so it just leaves a light wash of buildable colour on my lips, not very long wearing but I can forgive that due to the formula. This was exactly what I was after, easy to apply, glossy finish, and after watching one of Jaclyn Hill’s recent videos and hearing her say that she loves a coral lip on a blonde, I knew I needed it.
The second lipstick is “Mink”, the midtone brown lipstick that I can just about pull off. The “creme” finish is gorgeous and I want so many more from the range, it is pigmented and has a slight glossy finish making it wearable. This lipstick is best described as the whole of the 90’s in lipstick format, I’m in!
L’oreal was next as I knew I wanted to try the Super Liner, I’ll get the critique out of the way first, any girls with oily skin out there or planning on wearing this throughout the whole day may need to touch up, I have oily skin and it isn’t (unfortunately) the most long lasting I have used… Having said that my winged liner has never looked so good, the shape of the pen nib makes it so easy to look like you know what you’re doing (which I don’t). The formula is also really pigmented, so when it does stay put, it looks great!
Last but not least, a new concealer… There was some sort of offer on, so as per usual I was sucked in. The L’oreal True Match concealer was a worthy little find, I prefer it for under the eyes as the super blendable and pigmented formula thankfully doesn’t crease. I went for the shade 2 Vanilla, I expected it to be more cool toned but it is pretty much a yellow concealer, so good for cancelling out and unforgiving blue shadows around my eyes. I like the packaging, nothing worse than a concealer that you have to dip your finger into. This concealer is something quite new for me, I usually go for those that provide maximum coverage, but the medium coverage this provides I am actually learning to love, the Clarins Instant Concealer is next on my list!
