CHLOE REVIEWS: REVLON LIP BUTTER IN COTTON CANDY!


Hey guys, it feels so long since I have done a review! Today I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and review the only Revlon Lip Butter that I have. I know every blogger and their dog would of done a post on at least one by now, but I thought I would just chuck in what I think for what it's worth!

What the website says - 
'- Buttery Balm + Shiny Color
- Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips
- 94% of women felt lips were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated.
- Hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture by 156%
- Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth
- Sheer to medium colour with buttery shine 



Texture and Pigmentation - The texture of this is a bit different to what I thought it would be. They are a lip butter with the pigmentation of a glossy lip stick. Compairing these with a tinted lip balm, these would have much more pigmentation. The stay in power isn't overly amazing, about 2 hours max! But that honestly doesn't bother me. The colour is of a warmish pink with a peachy/gold shimmer. 

Scent - These smell like most lipsticks, which is a shame as I would of loved them to be fruity! But to me, I can smell a little sweet scent a tiny bit.


Packaging and Price - The packaging on the lid is of the quilted sort. The lid colours change to the colour of the lip butter. It is also sturdy and it feels a little high end! You can get these from Boots for £5.99.

I hope you've all enjoyed reading! Do you like the Revlon Lip Butters?

TWITTER!

Hello again! I've been using my Twitter a lot more recently and I would be so grateful if you could all go and follow me @HeyyArnoldx 
Diolch! (That's thanks in Welsh ;-) )

PHOTOGRAPHY!

Hey guys, it's a surprisingly sunny day in little ol' Wales today, so me and my mam went up the mountain to take some photos. Living in Wales, as some of you might know, there is quite a lot of sheep. I have a massive phobia have sheep, I have no idea why! They scare me so much that I can't look at them on the T.V and I don't even eat lamb! Anyway, there were lots of them about today, so I only managed to come out with a few photos as my mind was set on making sure there was no sheep around me and planning a quick escape route just in case one ran at me. I sound so crazy but I really am scared of them haha. Here is the result of the quick trip!





Sorry it was a short post, I will have my wish away monday up tomorrow! What have you done today?

Hey guys, I don't think I've told you this, but I am a massive fan of Disney and Disney Couture jewelry. I own 2 pieces from the brand, but I'll do a post on that another day. Anyway, I've seen around that there is a new collection which I am very excited about. The collection is based upon Snow White, Cinderella, Tinkerbell and Winnie The Pooh. The range includes rings, necklaces, bracelets and bangles with the price tag starting from £23.00. I found all this out from an online shop which I absolutely love, called Truffle Shuffle. They have there own blog which I was reading and found the post about this. I couldn't find any pictures on the new collection so I sneakily took them from that blog.
Gold Plated Snow White Snow Globe Ring - £42.00

Silver Plated And Crystal Cinderella Carriage Pendent Necklace - £53.00

Silver Plated And Crystal Cinderella Carriage Pendent Bracelet - £68.00

CHLOE REVIEWS: MUA EYE SHADOW IN SHADE 2 - PEARL


Ahoy there readers, another review for you all today. It's a very affordable product that you'll just keep finding yourself going back for more shades like I did! Carry on reading if you want to find a highly pigmented eye shadow at a high street price!

What the website says - 'Single eyeshadows that are super high pigmented, smooth and easy to apply are the must-have item from MUA. They’re the barga-licious price of just £1 each and they come in 34 amazing shades from brights to natural colours. Create a dramatic look with three or four in one look, or simply sweep one across the eye for a wash of colour. Omg, we just love these eyeshadows! You could even use some of them as blushers! The looks you could create are endless… go on, collect them all!'


Texture and pigmentation - I feel like I say this every time I review eye shadows, but this eye shadow is soft and velvety. I haven't experienced any fall out surprisingly. The pigmentation is incredible for the price and for that fact that it's a drugstore/high street product. I use this to brighten up the inner corner of my eye and highlight my brow bone everyday and sometimes use it as a facial highlighter.

Scent - I personally, think that this smells like your typical eye shadow. No scent meaning that there shouldn't be any irritation for your eyes.


Packaging and price - Because of the price of this product, I don't think anyone should expect the packaging to be incredible. You can see the product and I think that the product is pretty protected from shattering by the packaging, which is what I would expect from the packaging. The price is..*drum roll* £1! Just £1 for 2g of product, bargain! You can get this in your local Superdrug or from the MUA website.

Thank you for reading guys! Have you tried out this MUA eye shadow? Also I would really appreciate it if you vote for my blog here.

CHLOE REVIEWS: SLEEK OH SO SPECIAL EYE SHADOW PALETTE


Hello, hope you're all well! I'm currently watching Chicago so I thought while I'm here, I may as well do a post. I hauled this product a few weeks ago, so I've given it a go test and here is what I thought..


What the website says - 'It’s the ultimate i-Divine that every woman should have in her possession, with 12 flattering on-trend shades to suit all skin tones no matter what the occasion, the Oh So Special palette will always deliver the perfect results. 
Take your look from day time chic with matte browns and creamy beiges, through to sultry evening glamour with shimmering grays and smokey plums.   A make-up bag staple and a must-have i-Divine you can rely on, so no matter where you are or what you’re doing you’ll look Oh So Special!
We've recently given our i-Divines a makeover! The outer packaging has been updated and the way the eye shadows are pressed are different. They are now pressed flat instead of the original waffle print.'

Texture and pigmentation - The texture is incredibly buttery and soft for a drugstore palette. There is a bit of fall out from the shadows but it's nothing you can't wipe away. The pigmentation is also amazing. There is a mixture of matte and shimmer shadows which is why this palette is right up my street!

 1st row L to R - Bow, Organza, Ribbon, Gift Basket, Glitz and Celebrate
2nd L to R - Pamper, Gateau, The Mail, Boxed, Wrapped Up and Noir

Scent - The scent is a powdery smell as you would expect with any eye shadow, so it shouldn't effect any with sensitive eyes. 

Packaging and Price - The packaging has the same classic matte packaging as Nars. This means that it's a bugger at attracting dirt. It's plastic and sleek, as well as durable. You can pick this up from Superdrug or SleekMakeup.com for £6.49.

I hope you all fall in love with these eyeshadows as much as I have and consider buying it, it really is amazing. If you have already tried this palette, let me know what you think in the comments below. Thank you for reading guys, it really means a lot!
