RIMMEL STAY SATIN COLLECTION

B E A U T Y

I am such a lipstick lover. I love every type of lipstick. I was very kindly sent a VoxBox from Influenster, (which if you don’t know what it is click here and watch my Youtube video on it, I review another Rimmel collection and talk about how the app works etc..) They very kindly sent me Rimmel’s new launch and of lipsticks! They have a new satin liquid lipstick!!! AHHH!! If you know me then you know that their Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick is one of my favourite liquid lipsticks, in the shade Be My Baby, it is my ultimate nude shade! So when Influenster said they were sending me a whole box of their new formula, TOO EXCITED!!

They sent me 8 of their newest lipsticks and honestly I am already blown away with them! So they are a satin liquid lipstick, they dry like a liquid lipstick but have the feel of a gloss. Therefore, if you drink or eat then it will transfer BUT! it lasts for such a long time.  I know that they have more shades than the 8 that they sent me, and all of them are stunning!!

I am going to be discussing everything… the packaging, the formula, the colours, the price, where to get them from and is it worth your dollar?!

I think the names are kind of cool. I really like the one called Scrunchie just because it sort of goes with this time of year, it is summer and the sun is out. I love a good Scrunchie in my hair! love it!

The colours are absolutely stunning! They all look very opaque and really colourful. I love the different tones of pink/purple. There are two nudes and a grey and the rest of the colours are pretty fun. I feel like all of these colours will look good for certain occasions, the grey one is certainly screaming Halloween to me. You can see from the swatches that they are very glossy, these make me super happy.

The packaging is exactly the same as their stay matte lip quick lipsticks. I have always liked the packaging, it is pretty standard from Rimmel. They are lightweight and are easy to keep in your bag to re apply if needed.

W H E N & W H E R E ?

You can get these from Superdrug, and because this post is so over due they are most definitely in stores already.

I have been wearing these for a while now and I can honestly say I love them. I love the new formulation and how long-lasting they are. They have the longevity of a matte lipstick but appear satin. I have noticed that once the satin of the lipgloss starts to wear off, it just starts to look like a matte lipstick. I have been really enjoying wearing these as they are perfect for this time of year. LOVE THEM! I have been wearing the shades shoulder pads and scrunchie the most, they are gorgeous. I would recommend these lippies if you are a gloss lover, but also you love a gloss that lasts a good amount of time!

What colour stands out to you? do you have any of these?

COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER NEW SHADE VS FAIR I

B E A U T Y

Hey guys. I feel like it has been soooo long since I did a proper beauty related blog post!  I was actually meant to upload this AGES AGO.. but I have had other posts scheduled. I also have 2 essays due soon, so just trying to stay on top of it all.

I am so excited for this post because I am talking about something I absolutely love and a lot of people seem to love too. I was going to do a Youtube video on it, but I wanted to do it on my blog instead. I would love it if you could check out my Youtube IT WOULD MEAN EVERYTHING TO ME!

In today’s post I am going to be talking about the NEW (it has been out for about 2 months now, I’m just VERY late to the game)  Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer EVERYONE LOVES THIS CONCEALER AND IF YOU HAVEN’T TRIED IT, WE CAN’T BE FRIENDS ANYMORE. Just joking, but honestly if you haven’t tried it. ARE YOU OK?! it is such an amazing concealer I normally use the shade Fair 1, but they recently brought out  an Extra Fair 0.

Be prepared to see my face without any makeup on, I’m just warning you 🙂

EXTRA FAIR 0, LEFT SWATCH. FAIR 1, RIGHT SWATCH

Firstly, you can already see that the newer shade has more of a yellow undertone and the old shade has more of a pinky undertone.

Secondly, the packaging on both bottles of concealer is exactly the same, they haven’t changed the packaging at all. They both have 6.5ml of product inside and have a shelf life of 12 months. They both retail for £4.19 and if you are a student and have a Uni days and a Superdrug card you can see student discount in Superdrug.

OH HI. NEW SHADE- EXTRA FAIR 0.

I have applied the new shade to my right side of the face in person, but on here it is the left side. It has the same consistency and is the same formula as the old concealer just is more yellow.

fullsizeoutput_3510
FAIR 1

This is obviously the old shade, FAIR 1. As you can see, it is more of a pinky undertone which does suit my skin better as I have red tones on my face. This shade doesn’t have the same coverage as the newer shade, this one looks more streaky.

*HAD A QUICK BLEND AROUND THE OL’ EYES, USING A BEAUTY BLENDER*

AND IT IS BLENDED. This is what my face looks like after both sides have just been blended out. Also, don’t ask me why my right eye looks smaller than my left eye, it might have something to do with the fact that i literally.. LITERALLY.. just woke up to take these pictures.

As you can see, they both blended out beautifully and they sort of look the same. They both have the same coverage, I wouldn’t necessarily say that the new shade performs different better the shade Fair 1.

DSCN3655
OH HI MASCARA ON MY LID THERE -_- YOU JUST CHILLIN OR???

I did the rest of my makeup and went out for a bit then wanted you all to see what it looks like after a couple of hours. So I obviously have very fine lines under my eyes anyway, but I think the concealer looks great under both. I mean, it probably does look a tiny bit lighter on the new shade side but you can’t tell I am wearing two different concealers.

NEW SHADE SIDE

I don’t personally think that you can see a difference. I mean I will probably still pick up the new shade when I go to get the concealer, just because it is meant to be the lightest shade. Other than that, I think they are both pretty much similar. They both blended out the same and they both had the same longevity.

 

 

What do you guys think? can you see a difference?

3INA, THE BEST SELLERS

– BEAUTY –

OMG YOU GUYS I HAVE DISCOVERED A NEW LOVE!!!

Thank you so much to 3INA for sending me* these gorgeous products as I am obsessed with all of them. I hadn’t really heard of this brand before, but over the last couple of weeks I have seen them nonstop all over my social media.

3INA are a new cruelty free beauty brand that have been around for about a year now. They have every product that you could want FOR EVERY SKIN TONE!!!! yassss 3INA you are doing it right! They have over 600 products and they have something for everyone.

They kindly sent me their THE HIGHLIGHTER 201, THE CREAM EYESHADOW 312 and THE LONGWEAR LIPSTICK 505 and I am honestly in love with all three. The highlighter retails for £10.95, the eyeshadow retails for £8.95 and the lipstick retails for £7.95 which I think are all quite reasonable prices.

I LOVE the box packaging. I think it is really unique and creative, you don’t see packaging like this. You can tell that they have put a lot of thought into their box packaging as well as the product packaging. I really like how the coloured bits on the packaging are the colours of the product inside. The red bit on the packaging shows what colour the lipstick is. I love how they have used white packaging, you don’t see a lot of white packaging normally it is just extremely colourful or black.

fullsizeoutput_1dd1

I also think they made a really good choice with this packaging. I love how simple and cool it is. You can tell that the packaging is really good quality and that it doesn’t look or feel cheap, but in fact the eyeshadow especially is really heavy. The packaging is really sturdy and compact and although it is black mine haven’t got dirty at all. I love how the name of the brand is the same on all of the products with a white line around it. I think it is such a different way and it looks asethetically pleasing to look at.

This highlighter is- 

– Paraben Free

– Cruelty Free

– Vegan

I think the packaging is simple but great. It is really easy to open which makes me happy as i hate it when i struggle to open palettes. I think the size of the highlighter is a generious size and the highlighter itself it really big. You are getting alot of product in this palette, you are getting 6 grams of product. I do wish that there was a mirror inside as it would have been nice, but I do my makeup in a mirror anyway, but it would have been nice especially for travelling.

THIS COLOUR IS STUNNING! honestly guys can we just check out that glow!!! This has been my holy grail for the last month, every time I do my makeup I use this highlighter without fail. This colour is like the Sleek Solstice Cleopatra highlighter, the shade Spinx which is the top left shade. I have been loving wearing it throughout this summer. It looks lovely with a tan as it is such a stunning golden bronze colour. I think this would look stunning with every skin tone and the great thing is that it lasts all day! It is such a powerful highlighter, but also gives you the option if you want your highlighter to be sheer. You just swirl your brush around in the pan a little lighter and you get the perfect sheer glow which this beautiful colour. If you want a high beam glow, this is your product!!! This is worth every £10.95 in my eyes, if anything I think the quality of the product is such a high-end highlighter and i think it should be more then £10 but hey im not complaining!

This lipstick is-

– Paraben Free

– Cruelty Free

The packaging of the lipstick is really unique. I haven’t seen another liquid lipstick like this before. I love that the packaging throughout this collection is really consistent. I love that they have a little transparent bit on the end of the lipstick so you can see the colour of the lipstick. I always think this is handy, I love being able to see what I am buying. Even though the colour is on the box packaging, sometimes the colours aren’t the same. The lipstick itself is actually quite small, the bottom bit where the lipstick actually is quite small but thick. If you think about a normal liquid lipstick they are normally long and thin. This one is different and I kind of like it. It is the perfect size to fit into your handbag and even the little pockets inside your handbag.

THIS COLOUR IS STUNNING! one of my all time favourite lipstick colours I have ever purchased. It looks gorgeous on the lips! when I put it on, I was instantly in love with the colour. THE COLOUR IS SO PIGMENTED, it does start to apply streaky but the more you go over it and apply it it evens out. Once again, this colour would look lovely on any skin tone. I am really fair, but sometimes I love having a really bronzed look with a Burgundy eye and this colour lipstick. It adds more colour to my face and this lip colour really makes your lips pop. The lipstick applied really easy and the texture was really creamy. It reminded me of the Nyx Lingerie lipsticks and they are my favourite liquid lipsticks. They didn’t last as long as I would have liked, but it lasted a fair amount of time. If I wore this for a whole day I would probably have to reapply it 2/3 times, but the colour is stunning and I honestly don’t mine reapplying lipstick (this is the same with any lipstick, reapping lipstick doesnt bother me at all) would I choose to wear this instead of my other liquid lipsticks? yes. Would I rather purchase this over my other liquid lipsticks, probably not.

This eyeshadow is-

– Paraban Free

– Cruelty Free

I really love creme eyeshadow packaging. I think they are really cute and there is such a lot of product inside the pots they come in. One thing I noticed about this product (other than the stunning colour) is it that it is HEAVY! you can tell that the quality of the packaging is really well made and not cheap at all. You can see from the outside that there is alot of product inside. The lid screws off which is the same with most creme eyeshadows and the size of it is really easy to stick in your bag if you need to. I find creme eyeshadows really good for travelling as you dont have to take a whole palette away with you.

fullsizeoutput_1dc8

OH MY! Can we take a minute…

This colour is absolutely gorgeous! it swatched so beautifully on my arm aswell so I am happy about that. This colour is sooo pigmented, it almost feels wet when you apply it. it blends really lovely, but it isn’t as creamy as other creme shadows I have used before. It is quite a sheer colour, so you have to build it up if you want it to be really blinding. When you apply it onto your eyes, foil comes through from the eyeshadow and little pink foil pieces appear on the eyes which I like but I didnt expect. I would have prefered it if it didnt do this but it doesnt put me off using it. This is such a staple colour for an eye look on a night out. You can create so many eye looks with this, sophisticated eye looks and creative and fun eye looks. I can’t even tell you how long lasting it is, it didn’t move off of my eyes all day. I really liked this as I love having eyeshadows that don’t move throughout the day. It was easy to remove at the end of the day.  I would 100% say that this creme eyeshadow is worth it if creme eyeshadows are your thanggg and you wear them everyday then this one is for you.

Thank you so much to 3INA for sending me these products. I have found some new products that I am obsessed with. They are really worth the money as you can tell that they are really high quality products. I had never heard of this brand before but I am sooo happy that I have.

Would any of these products be up your street?

1. How did you start blogging?

In the new year I decided that I was ready to start blogging and I knew I wanted to blog with WordPress. I wrote out a couple of posts and got some ideas together and then I uploaded my first post Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut Brownies and it went down really well. I remember getting my first couple of likes and feeling so happy! WordPress was the only blogging site that really stood out to me, and I found it so easy to use. The only thing I found was hard was deciding what I wanted to blog about, because I have ALWAYS been into make up and beauty, but I really wanted to blog about baking because this is one of my hobbies. I knew that these two were definitely going to be on my blog, but then I also love travelling and hope to do more in the future so I wanted to blog about this and then I added lifestyle aswell because lifestyle is a handy one to have on any blog and I wanted to blog about tips and helpful advice. I now have a beauty, baking, lifestyle & travel blog 🙂

I would love to see my blog hit 1,000 followers but in 5 years time I would love my blog to hit 2,500 followers. I would love to be getting thousands and thousands of views each day! I would love to be doing more sponsored posts with different companies aswell.

4. If you could move to any country where would it be and why?

I would love to move to L.A or New York!!! omg that would be amazing and there would be such good opportunities there for my blog and my acting to progress. The weather would also be the bombbbb!

5. If you could fluently speak any language plus English, would you write blog posts in that language?

No, because English is my first fluent language and I am English.
