Rimmel 1000 kisses lip tint ...


Can anybody let me know if they have used this product and found it to be easy to use? I don't know whether its just me but I have a dark red shade (the shade name has rubbed off) and I just don't like this product. The idea with the Rimmel 1000 kisses lip tint is to put the colour on first which is a dry matte shade and then you put the shine part on which is kind of like a dried out Vaseline stick. The shade I have got is not available any longer on but there are many more different shades on there.

Product Information on Boots: Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint features a non-transfer formula that leaves beautiful, natural tinted lips.The ultra-comfortable, non-transfer formula won’t smudge or rub off, while the caring balm leaves lips moisturised.

You can try different shades here. I might try a different shade in a different colour but I find it goes on the lips and it clumps up at different points and then a lot of colour sticks to the balm part. I also don't think it lasts very long. I have had mine a while so maybe some of this is because of the age of it.

Let me know if you have tried this product ...

See you soon,

Soap and Glory Scrub Em and Leave Em ...

Hi, I would say I am quite new to Soap and Glory. I have always used the hand maid and I have tried the mist you madly and hand food but other than that, I have always stuck to cheaper brands but lately I find myself branching out and like I said in the mini Boots haul, I have bought a few travel sizes to try. The Soap and Glory Scrub Em and Leave Em is in a lovely pink pot and the travel size is only £2.50.

I love it! It has the most gorgeous scent - sort of like candyfloss and I am a sucker for a sweet scent. It doesn't have the best consistency for me as I like to feel like I am thoroughly scrubbed but the scent stays with you all day, the colour is gorgeous and it does make you feel like you have smoother skin.

I would definitely repurchase this item. Buy yours here.

See you soon,

Rimmel Scandaleyes ...

I have been a fan of Rimmel for a long time. I have tried and tested nearly all of their make up but I have not always gone for the mascara as they just have not been for me.

However, I was in Boots and they had a special offer on Rimmel - when you spend so much you get a free mascara and this was my free gift. Rimmel Scandaleyes Retroglam Extreme.

 I actually had a little argument with a lady in the post office this morning because she said she didn't realise how anyone could wear false eyelashes all the time and I said that was random and she pointed at my eyelashes and I had to explain it was just mascara. I was very happy. Especially, as I pointed out, that this was a free gift because I purchased two items that I purchase regularly.

The brush is perfect for my eye shape and I blink against it and the result is extreme. I could probably get more shape and longer lashes if I did it a little longer for a night out. My new favourite mascara! (and it is only £6.99)

You can get yours here

See you soon,

Sinful Colors: Candy Coated

I have always been a tad wary of buying bargain nail varnishes, particularly as I have a job in retail and my hands are on the go all the time (hangers, till etc.) I can never get more than one day out of any nail varnish as they all seem to chip all the time.

So, when I saw that Boots had Sinful Colors in at only £1.99 for quite a big pot I was hesitant but I do like to try things out. Not only that, Boots have a 3 for 2 offer on cosmetics at the moment so I got three nail polishes for £4.00 which is a bit of a shock to my system as I do tend to spend a lot more on nail varnishes.

I tested out Candy Coated which is not available online but is instore. It is a lilac colour which is a lighter shade than usual for me but I am getting slowly sick of these darks days and nights and wanted a bit of pastel in my life. 

The nail varnish was a pleasant surprise, it finished nicely and only needed one coat. I did manage to get a full day at work but it chipped again the second day but I didn't expect it to even last one full day. The selection of colours is huge as well and well worth the £2.00 price tag. I will definitely be checking out some new colours from Sinful Colors.I love this shade too!

Garnier Pure Active ...

I have just made a repurchase of these and wanted to spread the word on it a little. They are the Garnier Pure Active gel wash and gel scrub with pomegranate.  I have been using these product probably for around a month and my face feels so clean after using it but I don't think it is doing anything for my blemishes as my skin is really prone to this. Therefore, I am currently testing out something new - will post more about this later.

However, my husband has decided to look after his skin a little more simply because he keeps breaking out in blemishes, particularly around his nose area. He has been using this along with me and he thinks it is fab. I love the products and they smell amazing too, but I feel like the cleanser cleans but the scrub just doesn't go deep enough into my face for me. So, although I recently repurchased at the recent points event at Boots, it was for my hubby. The best thing is, at Boots, these products have a third off at the moment too.

See you soon,
