Hi blog readers! It’s been a while (almost a week of no blogging, this must be the longest break I had from blogging!)- I had a report for my engineering project and I managed to write 37 pages of stuff which took up my entire week. Additionally, I have a philosophy essay due by the end of tonight which I SHOULD be doing, but I really needed a break, so I’m back to my inner blogger goddess (whoah, that sounds like Anastasia Steele from 50 shades of grey.) There’s so many things I wanted to review about and share some cool DIY stuff I made….so I’m glad today is the last day of summer classes!
I have a guilty pleasure of buying lip products at the moment, since I find that it’s really hard to do much with my eyes/face since I wear glasses 99.9% of the time. London Drugs are having a sale on Revlon Lipsticks/ Lip butters/ Lip glosses for $3.99 RIGHT NOW (Go there now, Canadian beauty lovers, go!!)
The deal was too good to pass up and I bought 4 Revlon things, since I had a London Drugs gift card, I had to splurge a bit :P. I actually splurged on many lip products (including Too Faced La Creme) …but I won’t post everything I bought here since I’ll feel more guilty reading it! My Revlon haul includes 2 Super Lustrous Lip Glosses in Nude Lustre and Pink Whisper, Colourburst Lipstick in Peach, and a Matte lipstick in Pink Pout.
So I actually don’t really wear lip glosses much, but I picked some neutral looking ones up, since it was $3.99! I only started wearing the Pink Whisper lip gloss.
(Omg- sorry for my horrible ugly nails. The past week I didn’t bother to groom myself or anything.) I love the sleek packaging with the gold band around the lid.
The swatch shows a very natural pink colour. It’s not super pigmented, which I like. When I first swiped this on my lips, I did freak out because it looked very frosty and too pale for my skin tone. Thirty seconds later, I checked the mirror again and I saw that the lipgloss settled into my lips and gave it a natural glow. I had some flaky skin on my lips, and the lipgloss sealed it up. The formula feels moisturizing and not sticky!
I found that one swipes does it for me, too much gloss definitely made my lips look too pale for my face and made my lips sticky.
This is great everyday colour. I would put this over other lip colours to bring some more shine! For $3.99, this lipgloss was definitely a steal! Head over to London Drugs (if you have on in your area) and pick some lip products up before Aug 1!
