Rimmel and Revlon Buys, and a Magazine Freebie

Yes I admit I hauled again!! Just a couple of drugstore items this time and a few things I've wanted since their release. First up the Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain and Balm

A lot of companies appear to be doing these at the moment including GOSH and Max Factor but it was the Revlon one that appealed especially since it was on special offer. You get a double ended wand - one end has the fibre tip stain

and the other end has a moisturising lip balm

It was quite hard to choose a colour as the barrels can be pretty different from the actual pen but this time I managed to swatch them and the colour I went for was a bright pink - Passion - here's a swatch on it's own

and then applied to the lips with the balm over the top

This colour is a real departure for me again I seem to be buying a lot of brighter shades at the moment, it looks really bright if you apply it all over the lips as if you were colouring in but you can apply it more lightly for a softer look - I can't wait to have a proper play with this x

Next up a foundation and one I've been interested in trying since I first saw it advertised. It's the Rimmel Match Perfection Cream Gel Foundation in 100 Ivory. I love the original Match Perfection and really wanted to give this a go.

It has a gorgeous creamy texture but as you can see it leaves quite a matte finish

I really can't wait to try this out I am still pretty pale so it should still work for me despite the fact we are in June I really need to get the fake tan out lol

Finally yes another magazine freebie there are certainly a lot of them around this month, today my mum very kindly picked me up a copy of Harpers Bazaar which this month comes with a free full sized Leighton Denny nail polish that retails at £11.00 - there are 3 colour to chose from including his famous greige shade Supermodel but I already have that in the full size so I got Viva La Diva, a gorgeous juicy red, I've only ever owned this in the mini size so I am really pleased to have the large one it's a great summer shade especially on the toes x
If you look at my sidebar you'll see that I am already pretty close to my June limit which isn't great after less than a week - I must try harder! Any quesions please let me know xx
