Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint + Collection Review.

I was buying a red snapper fish in Morrisons the other day when I saw some make-up which was reduced. I had a nosey and selected some pieces. Seeing as my Boots make-up haul went so well, I wanted to share what I bought with you.

Collection BB Secrets : Light

 I’m not a massive fan of foundation, most days I don’t wear anything on my face apart from moisturiser. This is not because I have amazing skin that needs no covering up, but mainly because I am lazy and a little bit because I tend to break out as soon as anything touches my facial face. There are some occasions where I feel the need to make a bit more of an effort. This is where BB cream comes in.

It’s a light coverage and it’s okay. It’s not amazing but makes things look a lil more even. I did take photos to show before and after, but the difference isn’t massive so I thought I would save you the fright of OMGMOARFACEPICS. You’ll just have to trust me, friends.

I am wearing the BB cream in the photos below, but for some reason once I edited the text and the collage with picmonkey and saved it, my skin looked a lot brighter and smoother than in the original photos. So don’t go buying it expecting your skin to turn out like that as it’s not an accurate account of how my skin looks, unfortunately. If it wasn’t for the damn BB cream, I could have left that little disclaimer out and had you all believe my skin is perfect!

Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint.

I purchased two of these bad boys. The pink colour is 100 Endless Blossom and the orange one is 700 Nothing But Nude.
 They have the look and texture of felt tip pens, which means applying this will make you feel like a child drawing make-up on your face, rather than a mature adult applying make-up. This is good for the drowning child inside me who is desperately trying not to think about my 28th Birthday in July. 

 The second end is a lip balm. These are so easy to use. You colour you lips with the pen and then apply the lip balm to add moisture. 

I really hate the feeling of lipstick or lip gloss on my lips, so this is great for me as it gives me a bit of a tint, it’s not too over baring and you don’t need to worry about it smudging or needing to reapply. I’m basically ready to condemn all other lipsticks and just use these.

 

 Collection: Work The Colour, 3 Smoke Screen

The final thing I bought was this plaette by Collection. I was intrigued by the cream and as I don’t have any silver eyeshadow, I thought I’d give this a go. 

As you can see from the swatches, it’s not very pigmented on my hand. But when I applyed the shadow to my eyes it came out a lot darker. 

I have old lady hands, beware.

 The pink cream is supposed to be used as a base and/or as a highlighter above the lid. I used it above the lid as the little picture on the back of the palette.

I really liked the cream, I felt it made my eyes look a lot brighter. The shadow itself was pretty decent. It wasn’t amazing but wasn’t horrible either and blended pretty well. 

Have you tried any of these products? Which one would you like to try the most?

You were all so lovely in yesterdays post about the comments on my weight gain. Just a few things I didn’t explain properly – it was a guy, not a girl who said it, and it wasn’t my manager. We’re both managers on the same work levels, just in charge of different departments. 
 
I’ll be getting back to you all and replying to all your comments, I’m currently very behind and still replying to comments from February! I need to get my self caught up but it may take a while as I like to visit everyone who has left a comment/URL. In the mean time, you can always tweet or e-mail me if you want a faster reply! 
 
Oh, and if any of you know of any good lip tints, can you let me know?
