Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 663 Va Va Violet Review

Hey guys,

I'd been eyeing up Revlon's Va Va Violet for awhile before I bought it, and decided to get it after AlisonLovesJB on YouTube showed it colour in her 'Favorite Fall Lipstick' video. I loved it as its such a dark and bold colour!

However it turns out it's quite sheer and doesn't look intense as what's in the tube, which I'm very disappointed at. The colour itself is a deep eggplant purple, which is very pretty, however the pay off is very odd, it is very sheer and quite glossy so it goes on really uneven. The only way to get around this, is to apply 3 layers and blot between each one, but even then it doesn't stay on very long maybe an hour at the most. For me this is just a impractical lipstick, one that looks better in photos than in real life.

If you have any deep purple lipsticks you love, tell me! I'm desperate to find a long lasting, preferably matt deep purple lipstick.

Lush's Let the Good Times Roll

Let the Good Times Roll is a new facial cleanser released and wow, its fab.

This is an exfoliating cleanser made from popcorn, real popcorn! It has a fine grainy formula made from polenta that polishes skin removing all the dirt and dead skin, leaving your face brighter. But the best thing about this? The smell. It smells like a bottom of a cheese cake, or salty popcorn, or vanilla cupakes! Just a really gooey buttery sugary salty smell that makes me want to eat it! It comes in a black tub, which when opened looks like cookie mix! To use it you pull off a small piece, rub it between wet hands to create a paste, and massage it gently on the skin. The texture is smooth at first but once you massage it on you’ll feel the finer, grainy texture of the cleanser, which isn't irritating at all. This cleanser doesn't strip your skin, but leaves it feeling soft and plumper. 

I think most skin types should be able to use this as it gentle but works . It buffs away flaky, dry skin without over drying.

Next time your in Lush have a smell, you won't regret it!

Lush Oatifix Facemask Review

Lush's Oatifix is a staple in my skincare routine. 

Currently my skin is combination with an oily t zone but dry everywhere else, so this is a real treat for my skin! It contains oats, banana and vanilla which makes it smell like carrot cake mix, it actually makes me hungry! Since this mask was created to moisturise the skin, it won't dry or tighten but having more of a buttery feeling. I leave it on for a good half an hour and when I wash it off with warm water, all those little oat pieces become a really nice gentle exfoliant! Afterwards my skin feels so soft and looks really bright. It is left moistures for the rest of the day, but also refreshed - something I love!

Now just something to mention, Lushs facemask are made from all fresh ingredients, meaning that they are free of preservatives so need to be kept in the fridge. It also means that you have a time period to use them in, so get pampering!

Oatifix contains 75g of product, for £5.75 

Have you tried any Lush facemasks?
