The First Pastel of the Season

So I recently acquired this Rimmel London 60 seconds polish. It is in a gorgeous shade of lilac, to be more precise "620 How do you lilac it?". I found that it was super easy to put on - it has a wide brush that means it's easier to paint your nail and avoid streaks. Not only that but it only needed two coats and dried rather fast I found. It gives a wonderful shinny, almost jelly-like, finish which is also marvellous. I am really impressed by the staying power of this polish! I painted my nails on Monday and it hasn't chipped and it's now Thursday night. That, i'd say, is pretty damn good!

I called this post the first of the pastels because it seems pastel-enough to enter that category... well, at least I think so - thoughts? I'm thinking a mint green is next... I have my eye on Mint Candy Apple by Essie....

Rimmel certainly gets my thumb of approval for this one. If you're looking for a nice pastel, but not too pastel, go for this one! You can get it here.

Hope you're all well!

Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon

This is the first "crayon" type lipstick product i've tried. Yeah yeah, I know I'm a little late to the party.... okay a lot late to the party. I'm a huge fan of lipgloss - something about the shinny-pretty-SPARKLY-wonderfulness of it - and I thought that this would give me that and possibly more of the sophistication of lipsticks? And staying power.

Boy was I right! The Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon gives a marvellous amount of staying power, I mean I put it on in the morning and it was still there after eating lunch. There is a definite sophistication to this product too. But the thing I love the most about this crayon product is that it gives a shinny-pretty-SPARKLY-wonderful effect to your lips... exactly what i'd hoped for. It definitely manages to pull off a cross between a lipstick and a lipgloss and I love it.

I got it in the shade "04 Peach on the Beach" purely because I am lacking in peach products and it looks extremely wearable. I think it gives me exactly what I want and satisfies my need for a peach lip product... for now.

There are three more colours and I can safely say I will try and get my hands on them, especially the gorgeous orange colour they have. What can I say? I cave for any coral-ish shades.

I hope that you all try this product out, if not on my recommendation, but on the rest of the beauty world's.

You can buy it here.
