Believe it or not, but this is my first Revlon Lip Butter. I.Know. Right?
I have chosen the shade called Sorbet which is a lovely cool-toned fuchsia pink. This is how I would describe it. London Makeup Girl suggested it for my ” Bright Winter” type and it was a great recommendation!
It is a beautiful colour that brightens up the whole look but is a really wearable shade, nothing over the top. It looks great paired with a bright pink blush and an eye liner or minimal eye makeup.

My friend was in the USA last month and it was very lovely of her to pick up several things for me. And this time I’ve decided not to get crazy and get only the things that were on the top of my wish list. Some of them were not available, so here is what I ended up with:
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blushing Bride. I wanted to try Tarte blushes for ages and finally got one, Blushing Bride seemed like a colour that I would like and it is amazing.
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette. I can tell thatRead More
Apparently, I don’t know such thing, as “too much black”, or, for that matter, often “too much red”.
I have been drawn to red lipstick and nail polish combo for years and years now. But lately I’ve been wearing it non-stop, almost.
While I’ve started “doing red nails” just when I started wearing polish in general, it took me some time to get used to red lipstick, and thank God. A teen with an (often badly applied) red lipstick is not the best sight ever, you know?!
Yes, I do wear it all with a red shirt. Did I mentionRead More
I thought that would be nice to write about some affordable pink lipsticks, as I used to buy a lot of these back in the days (ha!) that I have. In fact, some of them I have never mentioned before.
So the lipsticks that I’ve chosen are:
Revlon Colorbust Lipstick in 020 Baby Pink
It has semi-sheer frosty finish and a light pink colour. Feels nice and non-drying on the lips, I personally like to blot it, as otherwise it looks too metallic for my taste. See it applied here.
Max Factor Xperience Sheer Gloss Balm in 02 Coral
This is my favourite out of five. It gives just a wash of colour, I’d say it’s a pinkish sheen, and I am personally not sure why is it called Coral. I love using it with intense eye makeup or just as an everyday lip product. I find that the “sheer gloss balm” is a very appropriate name, as it is exactly that. I have one more shade from the line and you can see them both on the lips here.
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in 800 Pink Star
I loveRead More
It’s time for February favourites. Can’t believe that I am doing this on time!
In my January favourites (still loving those products a lot) I’ve talked about makeup only, so I’ve promised to include some other beauty products this time, so I am keeping my promise.
LVX Sanguine Nail Lacquer
I am very impressed with this nail polish, it is amazing. I have written about it last week and actually forgot to mention that I was also very impressed with how quickly it dries, even without a top coat.
Revlon Nail Polish in Revlon Red
I did not like Revlon nail polishes at first, mostly because of the long and thin brushes. But practice makes perfect and now my application techniques improved a lot. Plus I really love this shade of red, wore it twice in February.
YSL Eye Shadow Duo in 35 Caramel Tan/Burnt Brown
I thought that it was a LE, so I did not talk that much about this little gem, otherwise I would. I love it to pieces and use it a lot. This is in my top 5 eye shadows that I own, for sure. Perfect reddish brown, matte andRead More
