BLOG REVIEW - Revlon PhotoReady Foundation Collection

Image
Hello Everyone,
So today I'm going to be focusing on the Revlon PhotoReady Collection, that came out in 2010 with it's first in the Collection the "original" Revlon PhotoReady. Now any beauty lover would have already seen this one! but since it's release there have been 3 extra Revlon PhotoReady Foundations come out on the market all still promising the air brushed finish in any light but also with some new things too. So let's take a look at all the different forms Revlon PhotoReady comes in and which ones I think are good OR Bad.......

Starting with Revlon PhotoReady Makeup Foundation

The 1st one to come out in the collection was this one, the Revlon foundation that finally come with a pump! (as we all know the Revlon ColorStay never got that good old pump) but putting that aside, the PhotoReady pump was very controllable and dispensed just the amount you wanted & the packing was a winner for me too, a glass bottle with a good quality plastic lid.

MFOTD - Marvel Inspired

Image
Hello Everyone,

So Yesterday I went to the Movies to see The Advengers in 3D, and being a Marvel fan and an Iron man fan (as my favorite hero) I was really excited to see this movie . I did mention this on Twitter already and what I thought of the movie (no spoilers though), so please follow me on there!
So I was Inspired that morning to create an Iron Man look using his signature color of Red and Gold colors on my eyes, making the cheeks a light bronze color not to take over to much and my lips to go with my eyes making them a delicious red color is well.


Okay so frist off sorry for the baddish quality photo it was taken with Photo Booth on my Mac, not really ment for taking HD Beauty shots, but you get the Idea :)

BLOG REVIEW: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

Image
Hello Everyone, 

A few weeks back I was sent 2 of the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter's by a dear friend. That was the first time these Lip products came to my attention, I had already had a few of the other lip products available in this range like the Revlon Colorburst Lipsticks & Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss, which I really like.


So I received the colors 025 Peach Parfait & 090 Sweet Tart. I used these for a full week, and at the time I had cracked lips, thanks completely to the season changing. So I applied the peach one 1st and this give a real Lip balm feeling to the lips with a good amount of color for a balm/lipstick. 
The next day I wore Sweet Tart which is really pink in the tube & that transcendent on my lips like that too, AMAZING hot pink lips with the comfort  and feel of a balm.



Being the shopaholic I am, I brought a few more over the coming weeks that followed after receiving my first 2. I ended up buying 3 more in the shades 040 Red Velvet (deep red), 055 Cupca…
