Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick review (shade 01)

Hello Readers!

As many of you know I love Rimmel's lipsticks. So whenever I am in my local boots or superdrug I can't resist taking a look at what shades I haven't got yet.

This is when I found shade 01 which is your classic red colour that my camera does no justice for. This shade is beautiful and it looks great on pale skin tones. It is very easy to apply and does not need a lip liner to be applied before hand.

This lipstick lasts all day and it does not easily come off when drinking or eating. Like all of their lipsticks this is great value for money as it only costs £5.50 which is an amazing price for a high quality lipstick like this. This lipstick is not matte as it dries with a slight sheen to it which I love however if you are looking for your lipstick to be 100% matte this lipstick is not for you.

Overall this shade dresses up any outfit and makes me look classy and different which I love.

Summer Beauty Essentials!

Hello Readers!

Now that the sun is out more in the UK I thought I would show you all some of my summer beauty essentials!

Firstly a matte powder is a necessity in the summer as the sun just loves to melt the makeup off of my face! My favourite powder is Rimmels stay matte powder in the shade transparent as this makes my makeup last all day and it is great value for money.

Secondly a good bronzer is also essential for me in the summer time. I always get a great tan on my body however my face never really seems to tan. So I use soap and glory's solar powder bronzer. This is honestly the best drugstore bronzer I have ever used and I love it!

Because I have such dry skin an overnight moisturizer is an essential for me in the summer as my skin goes even dryer than usual! I am currently using Garnier's moisture restore and my skin loves it.

Next I would recommend a waterproof mascara so it doesn't melt down your face. My favourite is maybelline's lash sensational mascara as this gives you massive volume and length.

Finally my last summer beauty essential is a face sun cream as protecting your skin from the sun is so important. I have been using No7's protect and perfect which I do like however I wish the SPF could have been higher.

If you would like another summer essentials post (not beauty related) let me know in the comments or tweet me (@weekly_beauty) and I would gladly write one for you.

First Impression Review- Maybelline Colour Sensation Lipstick (shade 728)

Hello Readers!

I had been looking for a new lipstick to try for a while now when I came across Maybelline's  Colour Sensation Lipsticks. I picked up the shade honey beige (728) and I fell in love with it so I therefore brought it to review for you.

I am impressed with this product. This lipstick is very moisturising and doesn't dry my lips out whatsoever. If you are looking for a matte lipstick this lipstick is not for you as it has a noticeable sheen to it. This lipstick also lasts for a really long time and doesn't come off easily when eating or drinking ect. This product also has great pigmentation an only needs very little application to get the shade you desire.

This shade is a beautiful nude colour and it would be great to wear to school/work or just as a everyday lipstick.

This lipstick is great value for money as it only costs £6.99.

Overall if you are looking for a moisturising subtle lipstick this shade is for you.

rating- 3/5
price- £6.99

A Nail Miracle?

My nails before using the product

My nails 1 week after using the product

Hello Readers!

I was recently wandering around my local B&M store when I saw a product that claimed to grow and strengthen your nails. Now this product was cheap as it only cost £1.29 and I thought that won't work. 

However I wanted to give it a try anyway as my nails were very dry after removing my fake nails. I was impressed. This product contains vitamin E in it so my nails were very moisturised and they looked healthy. The vitamin E inside also caused my nails to grow quicker than they usually would and in the picture above was how my nails looked after just one week! 

The product recommends that you apply it every other day and it can be applied under nail polish. By doing this I have found that my nail polish has lasted longer without chipping! 

I can say that I am very impressed with this product and I would highly recommend it.
