Innoxia Classic colour Lipsticks

Hi again ladies,

 I've been giving a bit of love to lippies lately, sometimes I spend months using glosses, then it's like I discover lipstick all over again.  Recently I fell in love with the colour range of the Innoxia range that is stocked at my local Priceline store, ( RRP $14.95 AUD) sadly their stand is always half empty or missing testers, but that hasn't stopped me from grabbing a few utterly fabulous bold colours.

I'm finding theses really creamy and smooth to apply, they don't settle into the lines of my lips or bleed at all.  They have a pretty standard lasting power, but what really caught my eye was the range of colours, can we say Va-VA-vavoom..... OMG so pretty.  They sent me into a 'Must have lipstick" frenzy.

The range comes in a variety of finishes from Matte, to Cremes and Sheen's.  I do have a couple of the matte finishes but I will pop those in a separate post.

Onto the pictures, always my favourite part.

In my defence, I didn't actually buy honeysuckle, it was a freebie from one of the Priceline Beauty Bags, and it's a colour I doubt I'll ever use.  I most likely will melt it down, mix it with something else and re-set it so that I have a colour I can use.

Revlon Colourburst Lip Butters

Hi guys

I know it's been a seriously long time since my last post, unfortunately health issues have had me on the sidelines for a while, but hopefully all is looking up and I can get back into the swing of things properly soon.

I thought I'd do a super quick post with some swatches of the new Revlon lip Butters.  I have 4 of them in my collection now, and to be brutally honest I wasn't even going to bother getting any as they are expensive here at $21.95 each and were far too hyped up when they were released,  but I bought them on the spur of the moment on a rainy day in Nelson Bay as it was either shop or be stuck in a musty damp cottage with nothing to do.  I bought them at Priceline when they had the 2 for 1 deal on them, which I think is much more reasonable.

They are very shimmery with some even having noticeable glittery pieces, they are also quite sheer and glossy depending on the colour you have, which means you need to re-apply quite often and the pigmentation isn't overtly great on some shades, so for the most part you end up with a sheer slick of glossy colour on your lips.  Sometimes I really don't mind that though and the colour range is very pretty and girly.

The 4 colours I have are, Peach parfait, Cotton candy, Cupcake and Lollipop.  Lollipop is by far the most obvious colour with the best pigment and it actually lasts quite well too.

Onto the pictures, as we all know they are the best way of showing the colours off.

Personally Lollipop is my stand out favourite, as it has more pigment and lasts longer on my lips, not to mention there's just something super fun about a bright fuschia lippie to brighten your day up :)
