Rimmel’s 1000 Kisses Transferproof Lip-Tint + Balm

29 Jan

Rimmel’s new lip tints are now availabie! They come in six shades priced £5.99 each, cheaper than the Revlon lip stains £7.99 which these look similar to. (I have not tried the Revlon lip tints so I can’t make a comparison) I got my hands on nothing so nude (pictured above) which is a nice peachy shade (swatched on paper below)

 

The lip tint has a lovely apple scent and the balm is unscented and makes your lips feel soft and moisturised. I am not so sure about it being transferproof because after having a cup of tea, I could see the peachy tint on the rim of my mug. Nevertheless, I would use it again coz I think it’s a lovely colour.

Available from Boots and Superdrug.

This Week’s Favourites

21 Jan

This week, I have been getting re-acquainted with some of my favourite products. Brief description Clockwise from left:

Bobbi Brown Tinted Lip Balm in Citrus – This is a peachy-orange tinted balm which gives your lips a lovely subtle slightly shimmery colour and shine.

Benefit’s Benetint Lip and Cheek Stain – This gives a subtle deep pink colour to lips and cheeks.

Collection 2000 Shimmer Shades Blush in Blushalicious –  I realy love this blush, it gives cheeks a really nice subtle colour.

ELF Mineral Face Primer – A transparent primer which makes your skin feel smooth and poreless when applied. It makes the foundation application process easier and helps your foundation last longer.

Avon Colourtrend Kajal Stick in Black and Warm brown – This is a double ended eyeliner with black on one end and a dark brown on the other. I like this liner because it is very pigmented and lasts longer than other eyeliners I’ve used. I sometimes use the dark brown as a lipliner.

Avon Shine Attract Lipstick in Rose Bouquet P2 – This is like a lipstick and lipbalm in one. The lipstick has an outer transparent balm which gives shine and an inner core which gives colour. It’s very pigmented and gives a satin finish.

Revlon Colourstay 12 Hour Eyeshadow in Sable – A neutral brown satin shade which blends very well and does last long on the eyelids.

Avon Strawberry Sorbet Lip Balm – This clear lip balm is very moisturising, giving your lips a nice subtle shine. I use this before applying lipstick.

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation – This foundation applies like a dream! It gives skin a nice dewy finish and great coverage.

Modelsown lipgloss in Blackberry – This gloss gives your lips high shine and colour, and is also moisturising.
