Lasting Finish By Kate – Colour 22 – Product Review

Hi Everyone,

Today I’m going to be reviewing a lipstick from Rimmel London. It is in the colour 22 and is a deep red colour.

Here is a picture of the packaging and the lipstick;

My first thought before using this product was how cheap the price of this product actually is. It is approximately $13 AU from priceline which is a pretty good price. The colour of this product is also such a nice colour to wear if you’re looking for a nice red statement lip colour. This lipstick also wears well throughout the day without having to reapply the lipstick. It lasts about 8 hours as said on the product description of this lipstick. I noticed that the consistency of this lipstick has a slight creamy when applied but stays as a half matte lipstick. I would say that this lipstick is slightly drying as a result of the matte texture.

After using this product I personally think that this is a good lipstick to use when looking for a red statement lipstick when on a budget.

I hope you guys enjoyed this short blog post. Comment below if you would like me to post more reviews like this.

Review – Revlon Photoready

Hi everyone,

Today I am reviewing a new foundation that I recently got. Revlon Photoready. This foundation is one of the nicest foundation I have ever used. The Revlon Photoready foundation is very buildable but can still be worn using very little foundation. It doesn’t make your skin look oily. It doesn’t dry out your skin or make it look dry.

imgres-1 12.59.03 PM.jpg

The foundation comes in many different skin tones. The colours go quite fair and also quite dark. The price for this a bottle of this is about $25.36 depending on where you buy it. I bought mine from Priceline Pharmacy . Priceline is pretty cheap so it might be more expensive depending on where u get it from.

I would recommend you buying this and trying it out because it is a really good quality foundation. Personally I think that Revlon Photoready foundation is good quality and worthy spending a litting bit of extra money to get a good product.

Getting dressed in the morning is just something that everyone has to do, but do you really know how to get dressed. If the answer is no then keep reading. I’ll give you a step by step guide on how to do it properly every single day. So let’s get to it. 🙂

Step 1 :

Pick a pair of bottom. This will be the bottom half of your outfit. It could be a skirt, shorts, jeans, or leggings.

Step 2 : 

Now pick the top half of your outfit, the shirt. Pick what matches the other half of your outfit. You might pick a loose blouse to go with jeans, a patterned shirt to go with a plain skirt, or a shirt to go with leggings. Find whatever fits the occasion.

Step 3:

The next step is to pick the perfect shoes and bag. Pick the most comfortable shoes that also match your outfit. Remember being comfortable is also a priority. If you are deciding between two different shoes try one on each foot and see how each one looks. Chose a bag that is most suitable for your day activities. Choose according to size and style.

Step 4 : 

Pick something to complete the outfit. A jumper, jacket, coat, or vest to tie the outfit together.

Review – OPI Nail Polish

As all of you know, it was the easter a few days ago and I wanted to paint my nails. I used the OPI nail polish that I hadn’t used before. It was in the colour shorts story. It was a traditional pink.

After I used this nail polish, I was so amazed at how this nail polish turned out. First it was such a great colour, it dried really really quickly and when it was dried to had such a great appearance. It looked like it was shiny, like gel and not nail polish. It applied really well and was so opaque, it didn’t need a second coat. I wore it for a few days before I needed to take it off but I it did not chip or smudge at all without a top coat.

If you need a new nail polish I would definitely recommend you buying a bottle of OPI nail polish. It comes in many different colours, so if you don’t like pink, you can find a colour that you like. Depending on what store you buy it from it’s usually about $16.95. I got mine from Myer.

How To Stay Organised//March 2016

Have you ever woken up late, not known where anything is and ended up being late or forgot something? Well I’ve got a few tips on how to be organized and always know where everything is.

1. Put everything away as quickly as you can.

Don’t keep things laying around and wait for it to pile up otherwise the piles get too big and overwhelming.

2. Keep cupboards clean.

Don’t over pack our cupboards otherwise you will still be unorganised. Buy some cheap tubs from the dollar store and label to organise things into different categories. This will make them easier to sort out, keep organised and to kind thingsimgres-2easier.

 

 

 

 

 

3. Do a ten minute clean up before bed

Every night before bed, do a ten minute clean up. This will give you a chance to clean up an mess you have made throughout the day. Organising and cleaning doesn’t have to take a long time, just 10 minutes out of your day. If you do it everyday it will make a HUGE difference!!!

 

4. Make a menu plan

Make a day or week menu plan. This will make your life so much easier. I personally think that this is such a great way to organise your food and diet and to know what you need to buy before you go to the grocery store. Get some fun coloured markers to keep everything interesting and colourful.

5. Make a donation station

Make a place to collect things that you no longer need and want to donate. Grab an old box and write in big letters “DONATION STATION”. Let everyone in the house know where it is. You can decorate the box by painting it or by adding some fun colourful tape. You can get a cheap box from the dollar store. This a fun way to stay organised.

6. Get a family  calendar.

Get a simple calendar. A cheap one from the dollar store will do the job. If you have a bit more money to spend get a cute one from typo or one from target. Add appointments, family and school events and things that are due. Use highlighters to add colour and make it more fun.
