ELIZABETH ARDEN BEAUTIFUL COLOUR LIPSTICKS COLLECTION [REVIEW]

I’ve always been one to envy boldly coloured lips! And so I should – perfectly dressed puckers are so 2017!

Neutral statement lips during the day are such a game changer and I am totally feeling the berry tones this year a night time Wintery look.

With having beautifully coloured lips, comes the confidence to step foot outside and show them off, which every one of us should totally make our own and be proud to have such gorgeous colours flaunting about on our smoochers!

Today I am going to be giving you the 411 on my thoughts on the Elizabeth Arden “Day to Date Colour Collection” range, and let me just say that I am absolutely loving them! I have chosen 2 day colours, and 2 night colours from the collection.

All four beauties in a row. From left to right: desert rose, ultra violet.

I have always been a fan of Elizabeth Arden themselves, but their lipsticks just take it to an entire different level, not to mention the beautiful gold tube packaging  that these babies come in. Could the look of these lipsticks be anymore chic? In my opinion, they are just simply gorgeous!

My two “Day colours” are Desert Rose 17 and Iced Grape 36. Both are neutral colours, suitable for a day time look, and LETS BE HONEST, a girl can never get enough neutrals, or at least I can’t!

Both of these shades are infused with moisture rich pigments which leave your lips feeling soft and smooth all day and provide long lasting colour, which is fabulous! A secret ingredient of Volulip helps to seal in moisture which also helps in creating lips of a fuller and plump nature. Long lasting colour for a glamorous look is always a winner in my books!

Desert Rose 17 is the lighter of the two “Day” coloured lipsticks. It has a gold shimmer and a subtle hint of pink in the works, with a Pearl finish. If you love shimmer and pinky undertones, then this colour is for you!

Deset Rose – Has to be one of my favorites!

My second “Day” colour is Iced Grape 36. This colour is a tad darker and has a way of defining the lips with a single swipe of colour. This is my absolute favourite colour from this Beautiful Colour Collection. It’s simple and soft, but subtly makes a statement.

The Iced Grape Beauty

For my two “Night” colours, I have chosen Ultra Violet 40 and Raspberry 48. Both are bold colours, perfect for a date night. YIPPEE! Not only do they make a statement, but they are simple and a classic way to brighten up any night time make up look.

Ultra Violet 40 is the darker colour of the two. This colour has a deeper plum shade and is the perfect accessory for a little black dress. It has deep purple undertones and has a shimmery finish. These lipsticks are long wear so be prepared to find your lips stained in the darker shades, for a while. I absolutely love the Ultra Violet 40 shade. If you’re feeling bold and daring on a night out, then this one’s for you!

Ultra Violet – perfect for a night look!

My second “night” colour is Raspberry 48. This colour has an undertone of the, well, the raspberry type. In my opinion, it is a little lighter than the Ultra Violet 40, but is definitely more on the darker pink side of life.

Both are equally as beautiful and chic. Naked puckers are never attractive, so be sure to dress those girls up in one of these shades for a night out on the Town.

Until next time,

RIMMEL #INSTA FIX & GO SPRAY [REVIEW]

I seem to have found myself a 2 for 1 bargain, YET AGAIN!

Last time, this was my Garnier Pure Active 3 in 1 and this time it’s the 2 in 1 Primer & Setting Spray from Rimmel. And with “#INSTA” being a part of it’s name, it’s just as fabulous as it sounds!  I hardly used to use anything of this nature last year, 2017 has brought on a whole new adventure and love for such products!

Ever gone out and had your make up vanish off your face half way through the day, leaving you questioning where Cinderella was with her magic tricks to fix you up? YUP, ME TOO, and let’s be honest, those moments are not very fun when you don’t have any makeup on standby!

Since then, I have come to realise the importance of priming your face, and sprinkling some magical mist once all finishing touches have been made before heading out the door.

If you’re a watermelon kinda girl and love a fruity fragrance, then this FIX & GO spray is perfect for you – it smells fabulous and is super refreshing!

Being water based, this product is absolutely amazing if you’re a tad bit worried about developing an oily looking complexion throughout the day, because let’s face it (pun intended) – we all hate finding ourselves in situations like that!

My favourite thing about this spray is that it’s quick drying and locks in makeup, just in case you thought your makeup was talented enough to escape your face. Although, apparently it is, which is Rimmel have invented such a fabulous solution.

How to use:

Spray onto a clean face before applying makeup to help prime the skin for a dewy effect.

Once makeup has been applied, hold the bottle a few inches away from yourself and spray towards your face, walking into the mist. And there you go, the “setting” has been done.

(Sometimes I find myself flapping about for a few seconds afterwards with my hands to dry off my face a little quicker)

And there you have it, it’s as simple and 1,2,3 spray and that’s you, ready for your day!
