I'm back haha! I can't believe that I worked all through those beautiful days we had and then ever since I have been off work the weather has been horrible and wet haha. I have been super busy again recently and we are preparing for the Celebrity Cup at work, which means we will have some celebs coming into the spa. I have also been busy with uni and have been meaning to get some posts out for ages, but with the bad weather the lighting hasn't been how I like it for taking pictures. I am going to start doing some more chatty/lifestyle posts, as my reviews take me forever to write. I will still be doing them, but I just want to be able to get some more posts out for you beauties.
I have also decided to enter the COSMO blog awards for "Best New Beauty Blog" and it would mean the world if you took the time to vote for me. Blogging has helped me cope with my anxiety, as well as making friends for life. I also blogged for months without my blog showing up on peoples feeds, but despite that issue I carried on blogging for all my lovely followers who regularly visit my blog. I have such a passion for blogging and I will definitely be voting for my favourite blogs as well.
Today's post is going to be about a lipstick, as we all know I am a tiny bit obsessed with lippies haha - I have been loving this new shade from Revlon and I think that the Revlon lip butters are amazing and such good value for money. I hope you enjoy this post my loves and if you would like to contact me then just use my social media buttons just under my picture, also I would love to hear from you below!
Revlon Lip Butter - Juicy Papaya
Who doesn't love a Revlon lip butter ? they definitely rival the likes of Chanel, Dior and YSL who all have similar products for a much higher price. Revlon have released a few new shades for 2013, but when I went shopping it was only Juicy Papaya that was in stock.. but luckily that was the shade I actually wanted the most. I would definitely check out the new shades, as they are super fun and all perfect for Spring and summer.
The packaging is fun but classy at the same time and the quilt design is very Chanel! - I do like the way that they colour code the packaging, as it makes it really easy just to grab the shade you want if your in a hurry. Juicy Papaya is definitely a true Coral shade which leans more on the Orange Coral side and its colour does depend on your own lip colour. It will appear more light/peach if you have light coloured lips or if you choose to apply a tiny bit of concealer. However, if you have darker lips like me then it will be more of a true Coral, which looks stunning.. especially with a tan and subtle eye make-up. Juicy Papaya is lovely and moisturising, but does require maybe three applications to get full coverage. I do like it more on the sheer side though, as I sometimes use it as a cheek colour which looks amazing.
A real must have shade for me! I can wear it as a light peach or a gorgeous true Coral, It actually reminds me of a more subtle Tutti Frutti, as its less orange and opaque. I also like the fact that I can use it on the cheeks, which gives me a slight bit of colour. I think this would be perfect for holiday, as it looks stunning with subtle bronzing. I'm a huge fan of these Lip butters and think that this would be a great addition if you were looking for a versatile Coral.
I hope you have enjoyed this post beauties! and I will be back soon with a more lifestyle themed post. I would love you to leave your links below, and don't forget to let me know if you are entering the COSMO beauty awards as well!
