I love Kate Moss. I love Rimmel lipsticks. I love bright matte lipsticks. I love black and red. It seems like those Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks were made for me!
I knew I’d love them just when I saw the first promo and I was right.
First of all I really like the simple black design with a red Kate signature. Although it is plastic, it doesn’t look cheap.
I’ve picked shade No2 several weeks ago and now I am finally writing my impression. Ok, this colour is probably not for everyone(by this I mean that not everyone would like to wear it) but I really love it. It’s a bright blue toned fuchsia pink which looks perfect with a simple eye makeup.
Although it is a matte lipstick, it doesn’t look flat and the formula is non-drying. The colour pay-off is fantastic and you get a beautiful, vibrant shade with only one layer.
The staying power is
It’s time for July favourites and this month it was very easy to pick the products, as I truly love all of them and have been reaching for them a lot!
So here we go:
I don’t know how many times I’ve mentioned Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Luxe Once A Week Self Tan (review) and Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Oil (review) but I have to do it just once again as they are both fantastic products! Both are not exactly cheap but the best summer investment I’ve made. The self tanner gives my pale skin some colour so that I don’t look like a corpse and the oil moisturizes my dry skin and gives a beautiful glow.
I am not the one to go for shimmer usually but for summer I love it. Plus the oil smells amazing and a little goes a very long way.
When I finish my Xen Tan self tanner I plan to get an even darker version (I also have a Light one, by the way) – Xen-Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe Weekly Self-Tan, that is.
Terre d’Oc Milky Make-up Remover Oil
This is such a
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
Oh, great! Today I wanted to tell you about the Benefit gloss that I’ve been loving a lot lately. And just when I’ve wanted to take photos of it I’ve realized that I can’t find it! Perfect. I’ve been looking for it everywhere and still nothing.
If you follow me on twitter you probably know that about a month ago I’ve lost a brand new brown Benefit BadGal mascara which I bought for summer.
Great, now 2 Benefit products are gone. I am extremely upset. The gloss by the way is called I’m with the band and is a pretty peachy colour which smells amazing. Plus it feels great on the lips.
So now, instead of telling you about my Benefit gloss, I will just show you how I keep the glosses that I use most of the time.
I like to keep glosses that I like separately from other glosses and lip products so that I can always reach for the one that I want to use today.
So here are the glosses that I like and some of them I reviewed for you already. Besides the glosses you can also see 2 mini lip liners by Chanel and Shiseido.
Glosses that I’ve already reviewed are:
What girl doesn’t love a good lipstick? It is always exciting to get a new one.
So let’s take a look at some new launches from different price category, from To Ford to Rimmel.
Good times, Tom Ford is launching a new range of lip products – Lip Color Shines.
They will come in ten shades and are promised to be tinted lip balms. I am loving the look of the fuchsia shade in the middle and the first one, which is baby pink. Look out for them in February, the price is £36.
The shades are: Abandon, Chastity, Frolic, Insidious, Nobile, Quiver, Ravenous, Smitten and Willful.
Stila Color Balm Lipstick ($22)
New offering from Stila are promised to be pigmented but at the same time have a rising balmy texture and satin finish.
There are quite a few shades to choose from: Valentina, Sheri, Isabelle, Evangeline, Maya, Vivienne, Elle, Ruby, Ali, Betsey, Gemma, Amelia, Sonya and Olivia. The one shown above is
