Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick

Hot or not?

So i bought my first rimmel lipstick yesterday…The casing has a slight purple marble finish (so classy:o!). It was around R85 from dis-chem pharmacy. The colour pay off is amazing and the texture is absolutely smooth, i drank coffee with it and even after it smudged onto the mug, it still looked great, therefore i would have to agree with the title, definitely long lasting. I have the colour 120 cutting edge, it looked like more of a dark purple on my hand but i feel it’s more of a berry tone, however,i love it! It’s partially matte so i would say its pretty much on trend right now.

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation

Hot or not?

Honestly this may be my third compact from this brand, i discovered it while snooping through my mums make up cabinet and since then I’ve been hooked. It’s easily one of my favourite compacts, this on top of a bb cream, works perfectly ( concealer for who?) for someone who’s on the go. It provides great coverage as well as matte finish. It contains a mirror which stays clean as it’s in a separate compartment along with an applicator, i personally prefer applying it with a kabuki brush. I have the shade true ivory 103.

The only reason i picked up this product was because it was on sale, as in last chance pile, and can i just say, I’m in love. I honestly have no clue why it was there but anyway, my luck. It basically comes in a smaller version of a transulent powder bottle, compact and perfect for your handbag and its tinted! Did someone say jackpot? :D Application would be greater with a kabuki brush rather than the one supplied.


Hot or not?

My first purchase of this product was on a cruise around 6 years ago and i can still say that it is my favourite to date. It’s apple shaped bottle looks perfect among my collection. It’s fresh and fruity smell lingers the whole day, this has truly become the signature smell (I may or may not use it almost everyday). This product will never grow old, so if your preference is freshness yet alluring, this one is for you.

Essie Summer Collection 2015

Hot or not?

Absolutely love the colour range of this product, definitely catches the eye however i would appreciate if the quality had to improve, it needs at least 2 to 3 coats in order to see the colour and it chips pretty fast during daily activities.I may have had higher expectations due to the price point but anyway, maybe it was just my bad luck:).

Hot or not?

As I was trolling the aisles of a pharmacy yesterday on the lookout for dark and rich shades of lipstick (just something to add some freshness for the new year) i came across the essence range of lipsticks, completely affordable and could easily give the other brands a run for their money but i felt the colour pay of wasn’t the best, yes it glided on smoothly and had some pigment to it,I would however refer to it as a tinted balm. Smooth, silky, tinted and affordable, easily something i would buy.
