The Lipstick Tag!

1. When you were a child, did you use your mother’s lipsticks?
I used to... I must admit. I used to love it but I would be so careful so I wouldn't brake it, I treated them like some kind of fragile or holy thing :P

2. How old were you when you bought your first lipstick?I didn't really buy lipsticks, only lip glosses.

3. Pink or red lipstick?Red! I love it! You can do so many things with a red lipstick, you can be daring or just a flush of colour ... just anything!

4. The most expensive lipstick you have ever bought? 

Probably... Gosh, I can't think! Probably Natural Collection lipsticks! I actually love them :D

6. What’s the most bizarre thing you have ever done with a lipstick? 

Used it as a blusher? Being silly and yeah, enough said :P

7. If you had to recommend a lipstick, which brand would you recommend and why?

Probably MAC, I do have YSL and Estée Lauder, I don't think you need an expensive lipstick, yes they are good quality but there is cheaper ones that can do nearly the same job!

5. And the cheapest?
MAC, fantastic colour range, amazing feel and pigmentation. It can be expensive though, another brand would be Revlon, much cheaper but as good quality as MAC, not as much of a selection though though they're still great.

Review Time : Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Candy Apple 035

When I found out that Revlon were bringing out lip butters I was really excited because I've wanted a nice quality one with a tint of colour for quite a while. I looked at reviews and went to the shop to buy one, I looked at the bright pinks but then when I saw the red colour, I knew I just had to have it. I took a look at the price and I was tempted to but it back down, it's really expensive for what it is. If it was a lipstick I would've payed the price but for a lip butter at £7.99, I just thought is was a little much. Anyway, I took the plunge and bought, I got a few point on my Boots Advantage Card so I could spend that on something else.

After getting it home I fell in love with it. The packaging, the feel and the colour. I was happy I got it in the end even if it was on the pricey side. The colour is so great and the pigmentation is surprisingly good for a lip butter while still being hydrating and moisturising leaving your lips as soft as a baby's bottom!
On the picture above you can see the product in different angles and the whole fancy look of the lip butter. On the top left of the picture you can see the product swatched, On the top swatch it was swatched a few times to build up the colour and the one below is swatched just once still leaving a great colour.

Overall... I love this product!
