As we are talking about lipsticks today I will show you the one I’ve been loving a lot lately! And it’s a matte lipstick by Revlon. I have to say that these days I am all about matte makeup. Besides lip products, I love matte eye shadows and slightly 60’s inspired look.
So here is what they say about the lipstick “Revlon Matte Lipstick gives suede-like application and maximum colour with on trend shades, that glide effortlessly across lips depositing rich, beautiful, matte colour.”
This is how the lipstick looks like and it has this interesting design where you can see the colour without opening it, very handy if you have a lot of similar lipsticks.
The shade I’ve got is called Pink Pout and I got it for £7.29 at Boots. And this is how it looks like swatched on the skin
My impression and lip swatches
Here is the look created by Revlon’s Global Artistic Director, Gucci Westman for Temperley at London Fashion Week AW 2011 on Sunday February 19th 2011.
“Alice Temperley is a stylish, successful woman, she was the perfect inspiration and loves a red lip. I also wanted to compliment the beautiful muted palette of the collection and the Venetian theme so created a confident bright red lip using Just Bitten Lip Stain and a strong purple smokey eye. I love the combination of red and purple for a look that is chic, expensive and powerful”

Revlon did an amazing job with the nail polishes for Fall. I want them all, to tell the truth. But if I could get only one that would be Fuchsia Facets. It it such s gorgeous nail polish!
Purple used to be my favourite colour for years and I think it looks awesome for Autumn.
Here is the promo photo:
Lovely Esther has beautiful swatches of all four shades: Facets of Fuchsia(see above), Blue Mosaic (blue with glitter), Starry Pink (pastel pink with glitter), Smoky Canvas (light taupy shade).
These nail polishes are out now but something tells me they will be sold out very quickly, so hurry up!
Here are the four new products I have bought recently…
I have used up yet another Optimum Skin Serum Oil which is my Holy Grail product by REN and decided to get a different one this time. And so far I really enjoy using it. Speaking of REN, I’ve used up quite a few products from them recently, so maybe I should write some kind of a round-up?
AHAVA Deadsea Water Mineral Hand Cream with Mandarin and Cedarwood. AHAVA is available from Nordstrom
I am a hand cream fanatic, and there are actually six (including these and these) on my desk right now. I imagine the number would be higher if I could fit all of them, ahem. But I did want a small one for my handbag. I usually get L’Occitane but decided to try something else this time. AHAVA is a brilliant brand, so I am looking forward to carrying this cream with me, especially now that it is Winter.
I have a thing for Soap & Glory products, they
