MAKEUP REVOLUTION AMAZING LIPSTICK IN CHIC, DEPRAVED AND CRIME: REVIEW, PHOTOS & SWATCHES

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Today, I'm going to share my thoughts on a couple off the Amazing Lipsticks by Makeup Revolution. Makeup Revolution is a brand that has been all over the beauty community lately, everyone and their cat seems to be enjoying their products. So if you want to know my thoughts on the Amazing Lipsticks by Makeup Revolution, then just keep reading! :-)

 ♥ Makeup Revolution Amazing Lipstick in Chic, Depraved & Crime. 

The Makeup Revolution Amazing Lipsticks ranges from nudes to brights with both creamy and matte finishes. There are over 20 different shades in this range off lipsticks, so there is definietly a little something for everyone here. 

The Amazing Lipsticks come in a black tube with a little sample off the lipstick on top off the cap, as well as a sticker with the name off the shade on the side off the tube. It also has the Makeup Revolution logo on the side off the cap. The Amazing Lipsticks have a very sweet scent, which reminds me a lot off the MUA Makeup Academy Love Hearts Lip Balms! :-)

 Overall, all three off these Makeup Revolution Amazing Lipsticks are very creamy. They feel very smooth and soft on the lips and they have a great color payoff as well. All three shades here are pretty, but my favorite is hands down Crime. It's such a stunning vibrant pink, which just brightens up the entire face.

Chic and Depraved are pretty shades too! Chic is a little too glittery for my taste though. If only it had the same lovely finish as Crime, then it would probably be my favorite one out off the three. Depraved looks gorgeous in the tube and swatched on my hand, but I don't like how it looks on my lips. I found it to be a little difficult to apply and it looks a bit patchy on my lips too.

The Amazing Lipsticks by Makeup Revolution are only £1.00 each, which is super affordable. It's awesome for those off you who has an obsession with lipsticks (like myself), but don't want to spend a lot off money on them! :-)

NAILS OF THE DAY: ESSIE NAIL LACQUER IN FIJI

Friday, July 11, 2014

Happy Friday! How are you guys doing today? I hope that you are having a wonderful day so far. Yesterday, I finally painted my nails for the first time in what feels like forever. I wanted to get this post up for you guys today and show you what I'm currently wearing on my nails! :-) 

♥ Essie Nail Lacquer in Fiji, HERE

I'm wearing Essie's Nail Lacquer in Fiji, which is a beautiful, creamy pale pink. It's a very simple, fresh and elegant shade, which goes with any look that you are sporting. It does take up to three coats for it to look completely opaque on my nails though, but it's so worth it in the end. Fiji is a shade that I always keep coming back to, whenever I'm not sure on what nail polish I want to wear. It has quickly become one off my favorite nail polishes from Essie! :-)

What do you think about Essie's Nail Lacquer in Fiji? Do you have it in your collection? What nail polish are you currently wearing on your nails? :-) Love, Christine♥

WHAT'S IN MY TRAVEL MAKEUP BAG?

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Hello lovelies, how is your Wednesday going? I hope that you are all doing well and that you are enjoying what's left off this beautiful day. Today's post is going to be a ''What's In My Travel Makeup Bag''. I'm going to London on holiday on Sunday, so I wanted to show you which beauty products I'm planning on taking with me on the trip.

I'm only going to be in London for four days, so I haven't packed too many items with me. I usually tend to go a little overboard with my packing, but I think that I did quite well this time. What do you guys think? :-) 

♥ Maybelline Fit Me Foundation, (HERE) and Concealer, (HERE) in 110, 115 and 15. 

 ♥ Rimmel London Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder in Transparent, (HERE) & Mally Beauty Evercolor Poreless Face Defender, (HERE). 
 
♥ NYX Cosmetics Powder Blush in Peach, (HERE) & e.l.f. Cosmetics Baked Blush in Pinktastic, (HERE). 

♥ L'Oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara, (HERE), Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in Caramel, (HERE) & LORAC Behind The Scenes Eye Shadow Primer, (HERE). 
 
 
 ♥ Small Z-Palette, (HERE) & MAC Cosmetics Eyeshadows, (HERE). 

 ♥ Eyelash Curler from Emite, (HERE), Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero/Whiskey, (HERE) & Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Nude, (HERE). 

♥ Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle, (HERE) & Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Mauve, (HERE). 
 
 ♥ Lori Greiner Leopard Printed Quilted Makeup Bag. 

To keep everything safe and sound, I'm taking my leopard printed quilted cosmetic case by Lori Greiner. This bag is fantastic for travel. It feels so sturdy and compact, and it has clear pockets which is genius. I love being able to see everything inside the bag. There isn't too much room for the products to move around inside the bag either, which is another thing that I really love about this makeup bag. It even has a little department for your makeup brushes too! :-)

I will be doing a bit off shopping while I'm in London! I would really appreciate some tips and suggestions on beauty/clothing stores that I must visit while I'm there. I'm planning on going to Boots and Superdrug, but don't have any other stores on my list yet. 

Do you tend to over pack whenever you leave on holiday? Have you been to London before? :-) Love, Christine♥

MY MONTHLY FAVORITES: JUNE 2014

Monday, July 7, 2014

Hello everyone, how are you doing on this lovely Monday? I hope that you are having an awesome day so far. It's finally July, which means that it's time for a brand new monthly favorites post. I haven't been playing around with a lot off new beauty products lately, have mostly just been sticking to my same old beauty favorites.

But I do have a few items that I have been enjoying, so I thought I would share those products with you guys today. So without further ado, here are my favorite products for the month off June! :-) 

 ♥ My Monthly Favorites: June 2014. 

 ♥ L'Oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara & Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Nude. 

I have only been using the L'Oreal Paris Miss Manga Mega Volume Mascara for a couple off weeks now, but I have been reaching for it almost every day since I got it. I thought I would still include it in my monthly favorites post, because I have really been enjoying it a lot. It gives my lashes nice length and volume, it haven't flaked or smudged under my eyes so far and it's quite build able as well. It can make the lashes look a bit spidery after the first coat, so if your not a fan off that look, I don't think that you will like this mascara. I also love the shape off the brush, it's wonderful. It's so easy to get in between all the lashes with it! :-)

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Nude is the perfect flesh colored eyeliner for the waterline. I have been using it for a while now and I absolutely adore it. It brightens up the eyes and make them look more awake instantly. It's nicely pigmented and very creamy too. The staying power is okay, nothing too crazy. I do have to re-apply it after a few hours, but that really doesn't bother me.

Before I heard about the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Nude, I always used to use a white eyeliner by Smashbox in my waterline. White can look a bit harsh, so I'm glad that I switched over to a flesh colored one instead. I have heard good things about the Stila Kajal Eye Liner in Topaz too, but that one is more pricey than the one from Rimmel London. If you want a good quality eyeliner that works great on the waterline, this is a great one! :-)

 ♥ MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul. 

I picked up this Mineralize Blush by MAC Cosmetics back in April when I was visiting my sister in Trondheim. It's called Warm Soul and it's a beautiful bronzed peach with golden shimmer. It gives the skin the most beautiful, healthy looking glow without being too shimmery. I think Warm Soul would look go well with so many different skin tones, definitely check it out if you are in the market for a new Summer blush! :-) 

 ♥ MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul. 

♥ Piz Buin Ultra Light Dry Touch Face Fluid SPF 15 & NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss in Tiramisu. 
 
 I'm happy to say that I have finally found a sunscreen for my face that I can't live without. It's the Ultra Light Dry Touch Face Fluid by Piz Buin. It absorbs so quickly into the skin and it doesn't feel greasy, sticky or oily at all. It feels like there is nothing on my skin, which is amazing. Just like the other sun products from Piz Buin, this one smells delightful as well.

It's so important to stay protected from the sun all year round, especially during the hot Summer months. I couldn't find this one in a highter SPF than 15 at the store, so I might have to pick up a bottle off the SPF 30 online.

The NYX Cosmetics Butter Gloss in Tiramisu has been a big favorite off mine during the month off June. Tiramisu is a pretty brown with a hint off pink thrown into it. It feels incredible soft and smooth on the lips, it's hardly sticky and it's got great pigmentation. Tiramisu looks great on it's own, but it also looks stunning paired with different lipsticks. It has a yummy, sweet sugary scent and taste. It's a perfect everyday kind off gloss! :-)

 ♥ Nike Dunk Sky Hi Sneakers. 

I thought I would start including a fashion favorite in my monthly favorites posts from now on, what do you guys think about that? My June fashion favorite has been these amazing Nike Dunk Sky Hi sneakers. I absolutely love them. I think that they are so cool and fun, and they go with a lot off different looks too. They have a concealed wedge heel, which is quite comfortable to walk in and they make your feet look smaller than what actually they are,  which is kind off cool.

I'm going to London on holiday this upcoming weekend and I'm planning on taking these with me. I'm thinking about wearing them when we are going to see The Lion King Musical. We'll see if I end up taking these with me or not! :-) 

♥ TV Series: 24. Photo credit, HERE.

Simon and I have been watching 24, which is a show that I used to watch a lot when it first aired on television here in Norway. Simon has never watched it before, so we thought it would be fun to watch it together. We are only on the first season though, so we have quite a few episodes left until we have completed the series. I'm really looking forward to watching the new season called Live Another Day, it looks great.

If your not familiar with the show, it's about Jack Bauer, Director of Field Ops for the Counter-Terrorist Unit of Los Angeles, who races against the clock to subvert terrorist plots and save his nation from ultimate disaster. It's a very entertaining and action-packed TV show, highly recommend it if you are into those kind off TV shows! :-)

What have you been loving for the month off June? Any products I should add to my London wishlist? What TV shows are you currently watching? :-) Love, Christine♥

BUTTER LONDON NAIL LACQUER IN SLAPPER & YUMMY MUMMY: REVIEW, PHOTOS & SWATCHES

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Today, I have a Butter London review to share with you all. I quickly fell in love with this brand after trying out their Nail Lacquer in Dahling. I'm really impressed by the quality off the their Nail Lacquers, they also have a pretty decent color selection too. If you missed my review off Dahling, you can find it HERE. Keep reading to find out my thoughts on Butter London's Nail Lacqer in Slapper and Yummy Mummy! :-) 

 ♥ Butter London Nail Lacqer in Yummy Mummy and Slapper. 

 ♥ Butter London Nail Lacqer in Slapper. 

Butter London Nail Lacquer in Slapper ($22.00 for 11ml /.4 fl.oz.) is a gorgeous teal with a creamy finish. Slapper is such a bold and bright nail polish, a very beautiful and refreshing shade for Summer.

 ♥ Butter London Nail Lacqer in Yummy Mummy. 

Butter London Nail Lacquer in Yummy Mummy ($22.00 for 11ml /.4 fl.oz.) is a beautiful, medium beige with a pearly finish. Yummy Mummy is one off those nail polishes that looks pretty on the nails all year round. 

 ♥ Butter London Nail Lacqer in Yummy Mummy. 

 The Butter London Nail Lacquers come in a sleek and cute little bottle with a white sticker, which has the name off the shade written on the bottom off the bottle. It's got a big black cap, which you have to remove before you can start to apply the nail polish. I like that the cap is removable, because it makes the application so much easier, and it also gives me a lot more control over the brush as well. There is also an image off a white little bird on top off the brush handle, which I think is such a cute detail! :-)

♥ Butter London Nail Lacqer in Yummy Mummy. 
 
 Overall, I'm very happy with both off these nail polishes from Butter London. Both Slapper and Yummy Mummy are very easy to apply. I didn't have any problems with streaking, sheerness or them looking patchy on my nails during the application. They both have a pretty thin consistency, not too runny though. They dry quite fast and they are both fully opaque in two coats. I'm a big fan off the shape and design off the Butter London Nail Lacquer bottles. They look very elegant and pretty, nice for decoration too! :-) 

Ingredients:
Ethyl acetate, butyl acetate, isopropyl alcohol, nitrocellulose, adipic acid, neopentyl glycol, trimellitic anhydride, copolymer, trimethyl pentanyl diisobutyrate, triphenyl phosphate, stearalkonium hectorite, diacetone alcohol, citric acid, dimethicone, benzophenone-1.

Where to buy?
