Make-Up Rumours Ultimate Metallics – Show your metal


Hey guys hope your all well. I'm going to be reviewing Ultimate Metallics – Show your metal set from Make-Up Rumours today, I first heard about this company from twitter and they were giving beauty bloggers a chance to get £10 worth of make-up and I could not say no to free make-up but that dues not mean I going to lie and say I love all their make-up if I don't like it, free or not I will tell you the true about want I thought of their make-up. Now lets get on this talking about the set you can get it from their website for £3.99 and you get 2 Nail Polishes, 1 Glitter Eye Liner, Eye Shadow Palette and 2 Lip Glosses in it. 

The Eye Shadow Palette


In this palette you get 8 shimmery eye shadows that has no glitter in them and 2 matte eye shadows. The shadows have a high colour pay out and I feel like you have got your moneys worth from this set with just the shadows, they last me all the way throw an 8 hour shift at work and then after that. The colours do look dark but I do think you can get some good day time looks out of them, I also think its good that you get 2 matte shadows so you don't have to go with a full shimmery look you don't want to.


The Lip Glosses

You get 2 lip glosses in this set that are both shimmery, they are not long wearing but they feel really nice on the lips and they are not sticky. I really like the plummy colour it is really nice and the colour pay out is really good however the light pink colour I feel like there is more shimmer then colour in this gloss which is a shame because its a really nice colour, it almost feels like a clear lip glosses that's really shimmery and I just feel like that dues not work.


The Glitter Eye Liner

The Glitter Eye Liner is a clear gel with bits of black glitter in it and at first when I saw it I was a bit put off but now I have tried it I would not say I love it but I also don't hate it, its fun to play around with it, trying new looks and seeing how its works best for you and I can see myself using this again. One way you could using it is by using a coloured liner first then using this on top.


The  Nail Polishes

Sadly I have not used these yet but that's only because I don't wear nail polishes a lot but if I very do wear them then I will review them

Overall

I really like the set and I would recommend it, I think you get some good make-up for only £3.99 and I think the eye shadows are the best overall.

If you fancy getting this set or anything else by Make-Up Rumours then here is a discount code that you can use with their discount code they have on the website, rbb10off

Duty Free Haul



Hey everyone. Hope your all well and sorry for not posting anything in the past few day but I was away and as you can tell by the title I got some duty free make-up. 


So the first thing I got was L'OCCITANE Soft Hand Trio which cost me £16.00 and they are all 30ml. I have never heard for the brand before but its made is France and I have heard the French skincare products are normally very good. The trio is a travel exclusive but I think you can buy all the products in it individually. The first cream in it is Almond Delicious Hands then Shea Butter Hand Cream Dry Skin and the last cream I got with it was Verveine Cooling Hand Cream Gel.
The next product that I got from duty free free was another product for L'OCCITANE, this is Shea Butter Moisturizing Lip Balm and I got it for £7.23 for 15ml. Now that is more than I would normally pay for a lip balm but I thought why. I have already used it a few times and it has no smell, taste or colour. 







Now I have never tried a MAC lip stick but sins everyone seems to love them and I was in duty free I thought I will get them to find out why they are so loved. So I first got Bombshell and that's in the frost range and that cost £12.90. Now I have know idea why I got this colour because I don't normally go for pinks but for some reason I just love it, I think its because it has a shimmer to it and I do like shimmery make-up. 








The last product that I got was a MAC Lustre Lip Stick in Plamful for £12.90 and its a really nice every day plum colour thats not to dark.
















I will be doing a review on all these products as soon as I have tried them all x

Revlon ColorStay Lipstick


Hey everyone so I'm going to be reviewing Revlon ColorStay Lipstick, its a moisturising, longware lipstick with shea butter and aloe. When you first apply it it goes on just like any other lipstick, soft and creamy with really good colour pay out but after less that half an hour it starts to feel more like a matte lipstick and that's not a bad thing if you like matte lipsticks. The first day I tried it I did not like it but I think that's just because I was not expecting it to turn matte but once I used it a few more times I really began to fall in love with it and I think it might be one of my favourite lipsticks. It lasts all the way throw an 8 hour shift at work with eating and drinking on my break and I don't feel the need to apply more. I do also think this lipstick is moisturising, after wearing it for over 8 hours and it turning matte you would think I would have had some sad dried up lips but nope, my lips still felt really good and hydrating. I would highly recommend this lipstick and I can see myself buying more x 

The colour that I got was in 070 Preview

Hey guys so something new for you all now Im going to be doing beauty and make-up news for time to time and today sees the unveiling of Viva Glam 2 by Rihanna and MAC. Viva Glam 2 is a limited makeup collection that launches in September at all MAC locations. 
The retail cost for the frosted metallic mauve lipstick will be $16 and the lip gloss will cost $15.

L.A. Colors 3 Color Eyeshadow Palette


Hey everyone so this review is going to be on L.A. Colors 3 Color Eyeshadow Palette and mine is in Lily which you might think will be purples because of the name but nope its black, as you can tell by the name however there are 3 colours so in mine there is a white, silver and black, perfect for a dark smoke eye. 


The white is not a chalky white but creamy and rich in colour with a lovely shimmer to it, I love using it has a highlight on the inner corners of my eyes. The silver is a really nice light silver and it also has a shimmer. The black is a nice dark black not too light at all and its not got a shimmer but it has a wee bit of sparkle, I do use this black a lot when I'm needing a rich dark colour. 


All 3 colour are highly pigmented, cruelty free, long wearing and have a silky texture and they also blends easily. I think they are so good for how cheap they are, I think I got mine for about £1.99 , I would be more the happy to try more products for this company and I highly recommend this product. The packaging dues feel a bit cheap but the eye shadows are so good I feel like we can forgive that fact.

Leave a comment below if you have tried this and did you like it too.

Till next time take care x

Blistex Lip Brilliance


Hey everyone hope your all well so today's review is on Blistex Lip Brilliance. I first heard about this lip tint on Beauty Broadcast Express by Emily and I was really hoping that it would come to the UK because I really liked the look of it and luckily when I was shopping one day in Asda I found it and I was very happy. This lip tint is a red tinted lip balm with SPF 15 and it has got a little shimmer to it. Its a really pretty shade that feels so good on your lips, its not a bright red but you can still see that its on your lips. It has a really yummy sweet smell and it has Vitamin E, Silk Extracts and Grape Seed Oil which makes your lips feel all lovely and soft. This is now my daily must have even when my lips are not dry and its always in my handbag x
