Tried and tested: Revlon Ultra HD™ Lipstick
Monday, October 12th, 2015

I do love lipstick, but it is something I only wear occasionally; having to be extra careful when eating or drinking so my lipstick doesn’t smudge just isn’t something I want to do on a daily basis! However, if I have a special event, my lipstick collection gets its chance to shine. I always opt for either a matte lipstick or lipliner, but when I was given the chance to try something a little different from Revlon’s newest lip edition, I couldn’t wait!

Revlon’s Ultra HD™ Lipsticks are the latest lip technology to be introduced to the brand. They have a unique gel based formula which aims to keep your lips hydrated whilst providing the long lasting wear that every lipstick addict is on the hunt for. My first impressions were great thanks to the luxurious packaging, making them look and feel more expensive than the £7.99 price tag. Upon application, I wasn’t disappointed. The consistency was super buttery and pigmented in colour, which I was surprised with. I did find that because the lipstick is gel based and has a very similar texture to a lip balm that it’s best not to apply it straight out of the bullet. Instead I found using either a lip brush or dabbing it onto the lips worked well.

The finish of the lipstick is definitely a sheen, and I was extremely impressed with the colour pay off with the 3 shades I tried. Within the whole range, there are 12 to choose from! My favourite one which I love wearing is Rose, a perfect everyday nude shade with a hint of pink. Hibiscus and Gladiolus I loved as well, but they didn’t pop as much with my skin tone as Rose did. Instead I could see them looking lovely on darker or warmer skin tones. The wear of the lipsticks lasted a few hours before having to be topped up. Considering the lightweight formula of the lipsticks I think this is pretty good. If you want to try one of these three gorgeous shades, they’re now available in the Glamour Beauty Power List 2015 box!

Change your make up for the season with Kiko’s Cream Blush!
Monday, October 5th, 2015

Usually I’m rather picky with my choice of blusher. I’m a prolific powder girl, and the reason being is I find all the liquid blushes quite hard to use and blend in with my foundation. I’m not easily swayed either; once I think I’ve found my favourite blusher/bronzer/foundation or whatever it may be, I continue to buy the same one until I run out.

However, I was recently introduced to Kiko, an Italian cosmetics brand founded in 1997. Their high quality range of cutting-edge make up is filtering quickly into all realms of the world – including mine. Designed for women of any age, Kiko allows everyone to express their personality through make up with their custom-made products.

So, back to blushers! I was introduced to Kiko’s Velvet Touch Creamy Stick Blush in the colour Coral Rose 03. Before using it, I was adamant it wasn’t for me remember we’ve got a prolific powder girl here. In all honesty, I can say I was very impressed with the Cream Blush. It was smooth, subtle and easily blended in with my foundation. Better yet, you barely needed any at all to get a gorgeous glow . Its handy stick shape makes application extremely convenient and I can only imagine how many months this blusher lasts! The product can even be applied directly to the cheeks and cheekbones. The velvety, silky texture melts onto the skin and gives a pleasant sensation of comfort. The pure colour release defines the features, ensuring a flawless finish. It comes in 8 colours to allow different looks to be created and to be honest; I want to try them all!

The launch of the new NARS Space.NK Audacious Mascara!
Tuesday, September 15th, 2015


Here at LIB we were seriously impressed with the launch of NARS Space.NK Audacious Mascara and Eyeliner duo. The glamorous event was held at Space.NK in Knightsbridge, where we were greeted by a room full of beauty experts.

Fiona and I both had a chance to get our make up done by the Narsissist crew. The girls used the new NARS Audacious Mascara and Eyeliner Duo, along with their limited edition Eyeshadow Sticks to create a flawless finish within minutes, and I really mean minutes! On top of that, we were guided through the design of the new mascara. Designed with over 200 molded bristles and lengthening hooks, NARS’ lash-catching brush evenly grips and coats lashes from roots to tips. From instant definition to blindsiding impact, every layer multiplies and amplifies. IMG_2452

After having our make up done we were encouraged to do a GIF – as you can see we’re now fully fledged Narsissists after this event!
