Whisper Review

14 Oct
Hello hello!

I am here! .. If any of you were wondering.

It’s been a crazy crazy week. In fact, it has been a crazy huge year. I can’t believe what has happened, it honestly blows my mind.

Last week, James didn’t go grocery shopping with me. Our supermarket is next door to Kmart. Without James I have no one to stop me from my temptations to acquire more stuff. So, I blame this review on James. Thank you sweet heart.

Maybelline claim the new Colour Whisper has..

Pure color pigments suspended in a weightless gel.
No heavy waxes or oils.
Soft, sexy gel-color.

I have colour 45 – Who Wore it Red-er

I find that it feels very similar to a balm but have found that within a half hour it dries and feels slightly uncomfortable. It’s a pity because I love love love the colour!
My lips are naturally quite red and as such, this colour really just adds that bit of extra oomph my lips need. I only use one coat and find that it is more than enough, it is fairly opaque.
With a quick coat of my Maybelline Baby Lips Color in Berry Crush it last a fair few hours before I need to reapply.

I may need to check out a few more colours. This has been my go to lip colour for the past week and a half.

APOCALIPS (my first ever review!)

22 Sep
Hello, good evening, good morning!

I didn’t mention in my first post but I thought I would also throw in some reviews to my blog, and for my first ever review I thought I would do what I consider to be one of my favourite new products out on the shelves.

Apocalips

a-poc-a-lypse
Noun
1. The complete final destruction of the world, esp. as described in the biblical book of Revelation.
2. An event involving destruction or damage on an awesome or catastrophic scale.

I love a good play on words, and I’m not not saying that it’s not true – but I don’t think this will be the last lip product I will ever use.

I say this but, you know what? I actually kind of love the Apocalips – Lip Lacquer. I don’t know what constitutes a good lacquer but it’s not super sticky like some and it smells pretty awesome!

I have the colour “101 – Celestial” which is a gorgeous blush pink colour – from what I can tell, on my skin any way, pinks can make me look a little strange because I have a naturally tanned face and my lips are already a reddish colour so anything lighter makes me look quite washed out. This doesn’t though, it gives them an almost natural look – even James (that’s my fiancé) likes it (and as much as I love him, he’s not really the makeup noticing type).

I bought this with some birthday money I received a little while ago and also managed to grab a couple of eye liners which I want to experiment with. I love a good haul – maybe that is something I can do in the future? A bit of a haul post. I do like shopping, but being a poor student I either need a really good reason or to have come into some money – so maybe that won’t happen until my next birthday – or maybe when I get married.

Anyway, before I manage to sidetrack myself even more, I really really love Rimmel for bringing this out and one day, I will buy more colours – unless they unapocalypse and bring out something even better. It’s bound to happen.

Love Matilde xx
