Why is it, that when you’ve got a holiday looming you always start to worry about everything you have to do before you go? When am I going to pack? Have I got time to get everything washed before I go? Of course I have, I’ve never failed at washing my clothes before so why would I now! Irrational but true!! Anyway the one thing I always seem to have time for at the moment is make-up. I just can’t get enough. I’ve downloaded every beauty app under the sun, reading all the magazines and am always interested in other peoples make-up finds. So this week’s product of the week is a new find and a new brand for me that has come through my reading and gas bagging!
I’ve never really bought Revlon make-up before. But had heard some good things about their lipsticks. So I took the plunge and bought a couple to try them out. Turns out they live up to their reviews.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick is my product of the week. They’re vibrant colours and come in massive varieties. Superdrug currently sell them for £7.49 each so they don’t break the bank either. My current favourite shades are Wild Orchid and Revlon Red (both pictured below).
This Revlon Red lipstick is perfect to create the crimson lip look which has been a very recent lip trend.
It should be known that Revlon isn’t the most ethical of companies they do still test on animals (as do thousands of companies out there) but they report regularly on improving their ethical trading status. In my experience lipstick is a difficult product to buy 100% ethically. I find the quality of the 100% ethical products are no where near as long lasting as other lipsticks and often aren’t as vibrant. It’s not something I wish to do when spending my money on products but for lipsticks I do find I need to make an exception – honesty’s the best policy!
Thoughts and comments welcomed!!!
I cant guarantee that all of the beauty products I recommend will suit you. I only use products I personally think are good after trying them on myself and my clients but everyone’s skin is different and it’s possible to be allergic to anything. If at all possible, test products out on yourself before purchasing.
