Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick in Pink Gossip (full review and swatches)

I adore this lipstick line from Rimmel (and not only this one, I think they make the best affordable lipsticks).  It has a nice texture, beautiful flattering warm toned pink shade and a matte finish, which I personally don’t find to be drying. In fact, I’ve used up half of this lipstick, if not more, and that says a lot. I only wish they had a different packaging but, I guess, most girls love pink…

This month I was away for two weeks (one week at one place, and then another one – different one), but I always had Elemis Skin Brush (review) with me, and I’ve used it religiously.  I personally use it on the dry body, brushing towards the heart.  The results are amazing, but you can read all the dets in my review linked above. I have two Elemis brushes, because I just had to! And I would definitely recommend you picking one up.

shu uemura Eyelash Curlers (review). I use these curlers every single day without a fail. Without them, my makeup is just incomplete, and my lashes don’t look that nice. A must-have for everyone.

I did take a picture of only ten products on purpose, so that I don’t go on and on in this post. But I just have to mention this Rouge Bunny Rouge brush, it’s my staple now.
