Avon Ultra Colour Rich Lipstick

Hello everyone! I just have one more exam to go and them I'm finished, I'm so excited for my vacation to finally start!
So today I'll be reviewing one of Avon's lipsticks from the Ultra Colour Rich line. I haven't been extremely impressed with it so far, while the colour is beautiful (I chose the colour "pout" light pink) I don't find that this lipstick lasts very long, and it really settles into the fine lines on my lips. Unfortunately I have pretty dry lips most of the time and this really emphasizes dry, chapped lips. It does look good when I *exfoliate my lips though so I've just gotten into the habit of doing that whenever I wear this. This is a pretty inexpensive lipstick, it only costs $8, so even though I don't like it that much it's not like I wasted a lot of money. One great thing about this is that it comes in a wide variety of colour's and finishes. The finishes are metallic, shimmer, satins, and sheer. "Pout" is a shimmer but it really isn't that shimmery, which I like because I think shimmer can sometimes look a little tacky. I wouldn't recommend this to a friend, but if you want to try it I suggest you make sure your lips are exfoliated beforehand.

* you can exfoliate your lips by wetting a toothbrush and rubbing it over your lips, this helps get rid of any dead skin. You can also take a wet wash cloth and rub it over your lips.

The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Moisturizing Lotion

Hello all my wonderful readers who have been so patient with me, I'm really sorry about the lack of posts. I'm quickly taking a break from studying to write this review, and I'll see if I can fit another one in later today. I bought this moisturizer last Friday and I've used it every day since and I love it! But to be honest it doesn't do what it is supposed to do, at all. Generally when something says mattifying that means NO SHINE, if anything this adds shine. Now, not the gross greasy kind of shine, it actually makes my skin look healthier. I don't use this on my t-zone because that's where I get oiliest, but I do use it on my cheeks because they often get dry. I'm pretty sure if I did use this on my t-zone I would look like a grease ball. I really wouldn't recommend this if you have completely oily skin, but if you have dry areas on your face this should work really well for you! One of the best things about this lotion is that it helps my foundation go on so smoothly, and it has SPF 15! Overall I would really, really discourage people with completely oily skin from getting this; chances are you'll hate it. But if you have dry skin, normal skin, or combination skin I think you'll really enjoy it!

P.S. It doesn't smell like seaweed

Rimmel London Vinyl Gloss

Hi everyone! I hope everyones weekend is going well. I meant to do this review about a month ago but I completely forgot, so here it is now! My friend uses this lipgloss every single day, and she always talks about how much she loves it so I decided to try it out. I've been pretty satisfied with it, I mean there is nothing really special about it. I do like that it's not sticky, it goes on very smoothly. Another great thing about it is that its really light weight so you can barely feel it on your lips when you have it on. There are a few things I don't like about it, one being that it's not long lasting. However it doesn't claim to be long lasting so I guess that makes sense! Also, for some reason this gloss sometimes makes my lips feel a little numb. I have no idea why because I asked my friend if that happens to her and she looked at me like I was crazy, so I'm guessing it doesn't happen to her. I have sensitive skin though, so thats probably why it makes my lips numb. Another downside to this lip gloss is it only comes in four colours, and none of them are really very pigmented. Overall its a pretty average gloss, so I'd say don't buy it. I will be doing a few lip product reviews soon so keep checking back for those!

Rimmel London Natural Bronzer

Hello everyone! Today I'm going to be doing a quick review on Rimmel's bronzer. If you have been reading my blog for awhile you will know that I am quite pale (because I've said so about 50 times) so bronzer has always been a hard product for me to use because many of them make me look orange. I frequently watch makeup gurus on youtube and one of them constantly talks about how much she loves this bronzer. I decided to try it based on her review, and I am so glad I bought it! It comes in three different shades, sun kissed, sun light, and sun bronze. Personally, when I was purchasing it I couldn't tell the difference between the three but I'm sure there is one once you put it on your skin. Well anyway, this bronzer is fantastic! It is pretty pigmented, but not so much that it makes you look orange. You just have to use a light hand when you apply it and you should be fine. If your pale like me I suggest dusting a bit all over your face, and then concentrating a bit more on your cheekbones, just so you don't look like you have racing stripes. If you have a more olive complexion you can probably get away with just focusing on your cheekbones.
This bronzer is also quite smooth to the touch and feels great when you put it on. This really does give a very natural sun kissed glow, and it's very inexpensive as well! Oh and it's matte, so if you have oily skin this won't make you look oilier. Basically I only have good things to say about this, I think it's a really good product. If you don't have a bronzer yet start out with this one, I'm sure you'll be happy with it.

Avon Perfect Wear Everlasting Liquid Foundation SPF15

Hi guys, So after a long absence I'm finally back with another review, hope you all enjoy!
I'm going to be reviewing an Avon foundation that I bought a few months ago. Oh I got a question about how to buy things from Avon, well chances are that there is an Avon representative living near your. You can check the website and enter your postal code and it will tell you if there is. Or you can order online. Now back to the review! I bought this because I was looking for a foundation that would last during the day in the summer (my foundation often gets cakey during the summer) and I had been reading really great reviews on this. I got mine on sale for $10, but usually it's $15. Because I had been reading such great reviews on it I was expecting a lot, and I was pretty disappointed when this didn't live up to my expectations. This foundation goes on so heavily its unbelievable, it also takes a long time to blend. I have some dry spots on my face and this really made them stand out and look flaky. The main thing about this foundation is that it is supposed to last all day and keep your skin from getting oily. Yeah right, this foundation isn't any better than any drugstore foundations out there. My skin still gets oily throughout the day, and the foundation doesn't seem to last any longer than other foundations. So I guess a lot of people loved this foundation because it got such great reviews, but I really don't recommend it. I'm going to use it up just so I don't waste it, but I won't be re-buying it.
