MAC Lipstick Dupe

I was searching through my lipstick collections of many different brands, I have a lot of pink lipsticks in all different light and dark shades. I realised that I had found a drugstore brand that is virtually the same colour as the well known MAC - Girl About Town
The Dupe is available from most Boots & Superdrugs here in the UK. Anywhere that has a Revlon make up stand and the shade is REVLON COLOURBURST LIPSICK - 030 - Fuchsia
The pigmentation is just as good as the MAC lipstick and the lasting power is actually better than the MAC lipstick and I am a well known MAC obsessive, so finding that there is a cheaper version of a nice dark pink is always good to know. photograph below is me wearing the Revlon lipstick (sorry quality is rubbish as it was taken on my Iphone front screen camera)

Brilliant Little Bargains

Just a few bits I picked up on a little shopping trip. I paid a visit to the store Matalan, which i never usually go to but there was loads of things that interested me. I was about to buy a peplum top, but they didn't have my size :( But instead I picked up this gorgeous glittery envelope clutch bag! For a bargainous £4. I think this is a goregous party accessory, colourful enough to jazz up any outfit..

Another thing I am going to mention in this blog post is a brilliant little wonder tool from Primark. That is a saviour for people who love back combing! This comb allows your to do it without splitting your hair and it also has a sectioning on the other end, PERFECT! Also this groovy pink comb was a bargainous £1.

Perfect Powder

I've never been a fan of powders, they either make my skin look to 'cakey', or too dried up. I've always been a fan of having a dewy, glow on my skin as I find my skin without make up is the opposite to this and is very dull. I had been recommended to use a powder as it helps the stay power of your make up and having a combination skin I was told to try
Clinique - Superbalanced powder makeup SPF 15
My first impressions of this makeup was really good the design was brilliant, very hygienic and grated of the amount of powder you needed each time you used the product. However the first time I tried it was over the top of a liquid foundation and this looked terrible on my skin It made all my imperfections stand out and made me feel embarrassed about my skin especially around my nose area. I mentioned this to one of my friends who said "noooo!" you definitely don't need a liquid under this powder just apply it after you've moisturised! So i did!
 I am very happy with it and the coverage is perfect the powder is much quicker to apply than a liquid foundation, so it is perfect for early mornings. Ever since discovering this, it is the first thing I go for on college days and the compact is easy to carry around and to touch up without needing to carry a whole make up kit & brushes around with you. The main reason being the anti-bacterial brush that is included in the compact.
This retails at £27.50 from all clinique counters where you will be advised on the right shade for you. Anyone like me who isn't keen on the concept of just wearing a powder, I would give this a try as I'm almost sure it will convert you as it has done with me,
