Hey everyone! If you know me, you'll know that I'm an absolute sucker for freebies and deals. When I saw that Revlon make up was 2 for £10 in Boots last week (they're on 3 for 2 now), I couldn't help but make a couple of new purchases. I've heard so many good things about the brand, however I was yet to try a lot of Revlon make up myself. I decided to get a new pale pink lipstick to replace my favourite (and really old) Rimmel one (see my recent lipstick post), as well a new nude eyeshadow palette.
Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick in 002 - Pink Pout (£7.49)
Revlon Colourstay 16 Hour Eyeshadow Palette in 505 - Decadent (£7.99)
I absolutely love this palette! I'd definitely recommend it if you're just starting out in makeup and need a few key shades to start with. You can create a really lovely brown smokey eye with this palette, or just use the shadows on their own. My favourite is definitely the golden brown shade on the top right, however I have also loved using the really pale pink highlight alone with mascara, too. The eyeshadows are reasonably well pigmented and last all day. As someone who desperately wants (and can't afford) the NAKED palettes by Urban Decay, it's nice to have a cheaper equivalent.
The lipstick is great, too. It's a really nice, understated day to day shade, which makes a nice change from my other more in your face lipsticks! I suffer from quite bad dry skin on my lips, however this lipstick is reasonably moisturising and so doesn't aggravate that too much. It's really buildable depending on how much colour you want, and I think it's a great addition to my collection. I've heard great things about other shades in their range (I really want the Black Cherry shade), and so I may have to purchase some more!
Have you made any make up purchases recently?
