Hey guys, just thought I'd do a quick post on 2 Revlon products I picked up earlier tis week. I've never really been loyal to one make-up brand and love to try new things and one thing I have never tried are any of the Revlon nail polishes or lipsticks bearing that in mind I picked up one of each.
Near we're I live we have a little beauty stall that sells high street and high end make up brands for really discounted prices, these products are all real however they may be last season or colours that didn't really sell well. I always seem to find a real good bargain whether that be a pair of tweezerman tweezers for £2 or Elizabeth Arden 8 hour night cream for £5 I love it.
So I noticed they had quite a few Revlon nail polishes on the shelf and this bright coral pinky orange colour caught my attention immediately. These nail enamels retail for about £6.50 in both boots and superdrug and I was ecstatic when I seen these priced at just £1.50. Because I put myself on a beauty ban I only bought one but regret that so much, I'm going to go buy more so the colour which I bought was 'Tropical Temptation' which is absolutely gorgeous. I've had it on for 3 days now and find that there are no chips and that 2 coats sits perfect on my nails. Thumbs up from me Revlon. Excuse the state of my nails i polished on the to after removing acrylics so my nails aren't as healthy and are rather stained underneath.
The second thing I purchased from this store was Revlon colour burst lipstick in crimson. I'm a red lipstick kind of girl and love anything that's red toned whether it be dark or light. Recently I posted that I'd just bought mac brick-o-la and I love it, this crimson colour is a shade brighter, not much difference but it has the same kind of consistency. Unlike brick-o-la crimson doesn't stain my lips which is a bonus. It's very pigmented and creamy and on my lipstick rating scale it gets a 4/5 nice one Revlon will definitely be purchasing some more of these. These retail in the drugstore for around £8. The packaging is gorgeous and just like the Tom ford lipsticks has the brand name printed on the actual product. Very high end and classy Revlon. I paid £0.50 for this lipstick and I am very very very impressed!! If you have tried any others then let me know what you think about the formula on your lips.
Finally, this product technically was a bargain because it was practically free. I had £30 worth of boots points and was saving them up for a time when I fancied a beauty splurge however, I was at the fragrance counter and spotted my all time favourite perfume 'Loverdose' by Diesel. This is my holy grail fragrance I just can't get enough of the sweet smelling liquorice sambucca scent and wish I permanently smelt just like it. So the offer was a 50ml bottle for £29.99 reduced from £49.99 so with my boots points I snapped it up for free and was really impressed with myself. Worn it everyday and I still get compliments off people, I've been wearing it for about 2 years and I love this smell!!
What's your favourite perfume? And does it remind you of anything?
