Finishing early from Uni yesterday resulted in a 'mini' make-up shopping spree. I kind of skimp on make-up usually. However I have been watching a lot of beauty videos on youtube and I'm slowly getting hooked. In fact, I think I'll do a post with my favourite beauty videos and such. Until then, I shall rave and buy more make-up and rave some more. Below is what I bought and a little about what I thought. :)
|Revlon Matte Blush in 002 Blushing Berry|
This is a warm berry-pink colour with just(barely) a hint of peach. I really like this. It's quite pigmented, just enough to manage, and the brush is good. I've been wearing it every day since I bought this. I think it adds that 'natural blush' and I find that really flattering. I don't really like that 'obvious blush' look, if you know what I mean.
|Revlon Super Lustrous in 026 Abstract Orange|
I think this is a very summery colour. It's one of the two orange-red toned lipsticks I have. I wore it today and it's one of my new favourites. It's got a pearly sheen which this range of Revlon lipsticks have. I don't like it much on my lips but overall it's very pretty. The colour is a coral-red which is really nice for during the day, I think. It adds a nice touch of colour to the face.
|Revlon Colorburst in 010 Plum|
I love this colour. I actually had a very similar one, but it broke and the packaging got all smashed and meh I had to buy a new one. I wore this already and it's good. It's creamy and it's pigmented. I don't wear it alone because I'm not used to that kind of thing; I pat it on and apply a clear moisturising lip-balm over it (or the other way round) and it's really really nice.
|Barry M Lipstick in 151 Sunset|
I know I said 'Revlon Haul' and this is clearly not Revlon, but I bought this a while ago and I thought I should put this here. I bought this online and I was quite disappointed. The swatch looked different, it's in fact much more bright. It's very pigmented and it looks almost neon when applied. I only use this when I want to add some coral to a more nude-coloured lip-tone.
|Mini Nail Enamels in 'Rock Star', 'Gold Coin' and 'Ruby'.|
See the 'Gold Coin' one? The texture is gorgeous.
These mini nail-colours where a gift. They're more wintry colours but I really like them. I'm wearing the 'Gold Coin' one in fact. It's very consistent and the quality is good. Nothing to say against it. :)
