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 am a fan of Revlon’s matte lipsticks but if you find them too dry and you don’t like matte lipsticks in general you may like their Colorburst lipsticks.
I’ve read a lot of good things about these lipsticks so I’ve decided to try them out myself. I’ve got a lipstick in #20 which is called Baby Pink.
A lot of people love this design but I like the design of matte lipsticks so much better, although this one is ok.
Baby Pink is a shimmery pale pink. I really like this shade and this is my type of “nude”. I usually use my finger after I’ve applied it, as I find it a bit too shimmery and mettalic-y for my taste.
I like the texture of the lipstick, although I can’t say that it’s super moisturising, it’s not drying although it can enhance dryness of your lips (it’s winter after all).

I really love Revlon lip products, and finally got around posting about their ColorBurst Balm Stain. I wanted 010 Chérie since I first saw the promo photo of it and, finally, got it this December. And, here is a review, at last…
ColorBurst Balm Stain is, as the name suggests, a creamy balm that feels nice and non-drying on the lips, gives a beautiful glossy finish, and fades to a light rosy stain after a while. Honestly, for the price, I can’t think about anything that I dislike. Maybe only the minty scent, but it fades after some time.
As for the colour – Chérie is a
Since yesterday I’ve featured some new eye products that are out for summer 2014, it is time for lip products. We’ve already previewed so many, but there are even more coming out our way.
Let’s take a look:
Revlon are launching yet another cool lip product (I haven’t tried it but love the way it looks & sounds) – Color Stay Moisture Stain which you can purchase from here for $9.99. Olivia is
It seems like I did not write about red in quite some time… This is why today I want to share about my top 3 red nail polishes. I love red nail polish so much that it is even my Twitter’s header photo.
So what nail polishes are we talking about?
Marc Jacobs Nail Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Lola (swatch)
This is probably my all time favourite red! It is a hot tomato red which is opaque with only one layer, it is glossy and shiny and last pretty well on my nails. Whenever I am in doubt about my manicure shade – I go for this one. And how gorgeous is that bottle?
