Revlon Age Defying CC Cream

At first I was sceptical about trying a CC cream as I didn’t know what a CC cream was. After a little research I learnt that CC means ‘colour correcting’ and that the purpose of a CC cream is to reduce redness and improve uneven skin tone. Now I have acne and when I learnt that CC creams reduce redness I decided to put it to the test.

After a couple of uses I did notice that some of the redness on my face did fade slightly but was still noticeable. This cream like most CC and BB creams wont hide all your imperfections which is where your trusty foundation or concealer come into the picture. This product instantly delivers hydration and a nice glow to your skin. The fact that it has a sun factor rating of 30 is great because after all this product is a age defying product and every one knows to much sun exposure can result in wrinkles.

The only problem I have with this product is that it does separate in the tube so you do have to give it a good shake before you use it.

This product does blend easily when applied and does give the skin a nice hydrated glow.

If you have been afraid to try a CC cream there is nothing truly to worry about. After all its just makeup and you can always wipe off makeup.

Maybelline eye and lip makeup remover


If your looking for a good eye and lip makeup remover then look no further the Maybelline make up remover is here for the rescue!!!

I have had this little life saver sitting in the back of my beauty collection for about a month and have never thought of using it until now. I started using it after I noticed that my eye makeup wasnt coming off with normal makeup wipes and may I say I am impressed.

First of all dont be worried about the small size of the bottle because a little truly goes a long way. On first use I felt that the product was a little on the oily side but that wasnt a major concern because after all it was the end of the day and I did need to wash my face. I applied this with cotton balls and after about two swipes I was able to remove 90% of my eye liner and mascara.

I would recommend this makeup remover to most people as I do not know if this product is suitable for people with sensitive eyes. This has automatically become one of my beauty staples and I will find it very hard to try something new.

Australis Velour lips Matte Lip Cream


Shades left to right: MI-A-MEE, TOK-I-O, HO-CHEE-MIN

These are some of the best lip creams i have ever used and when I mean ever I mean EVER!!!!
They are so pigmented it’s unbelievable and they smell like strawberries. YUM WHO DOESN’T LOVE STRAWBERRIES.
They last for hours on end, even when you eat and drink it still remains on, which is fabulous.

Ok so here are some of the cons.
So first con is that there’s only a limited amount of shades (more then what I have in the picture but limited) which makes me sad because I want more shades such as lighter tones.
2. The colours that these lip creams come in are very bold I wish that they made more subtle shades just for those days where you feel like wearing something light.
3. Like most matte lip creams you do have to moisturize and exfotiliate your lips before you use it just so you don’t get that cracked lip look when you have it on.

On the plus side I love how long these last and how pigmented they are that I will be buying more of these in the future 🙂
