REVIEW | Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms


THEY HAVE FINALLY ARRIVED IN STORES IN AUSTRALIA! Oh the joy! I have been waiting for these bad boys for months and I could not contain my excitement when I saw them at where  I work. I was so tempted to get them all but I restrained myself and picked out a few that I fell in love with straight away. I ended up getting Standout (berry red), Sultry (dark dusky pink), and Elusive (light dusky pink).

Top to bottom; Standout, Sultry and Elusive
I give these bad boys a huge thumbs up! They feel amazing on the lips and I just love the matte texture. They still have the minty smell like the originals, which I'm not a huge fan of but I can deal with it. The colour range is great with colours ranging from bright oranges for summer to the dusky colours for winter. Next time I get one, I'm going to go out on a limb and pick up the bright purple one! 

Have you got your hands on these beautiful babies yet? Let me know which ones are your favourite!

Empties No.1


I feel like these past months i've gone through so much stuff it's crazy! I've just finished my 3 months holiday so that allowed me time to use up all my products. A lot of this is just general stuff I use, not too exciting!

First are my 2 empty packets of cotton wipes, I use these everyday so I go through these so quickly. Same as the Simple Cleansing Wipes as there are 3 packets of those. I haven't tried any other wipes out but these ones do the job and don't irritate my skin like when I tried the orange Nutrogena ones. I have an empty bottle of the Biore Steam Activated Cleanser. I had this for a while before I used it as you can tell because this is the old packaging. I bought another one but it doesn't feel the same as the old one, but I think they're still the same formula which is weird. I have an empty bottle of my favourite Cutex nail polish remover, already stocked up on another 2 bottles! The Clinique Take the Day Off is the best at removing my eye makeup. It can be a bit greasy at times but it does the job so why complain? I bought another one but I'm also trying out the Bioderma as everyone and their Grandma talks about this stuff!

I have 2 empty Lush pots, saving these to take in to get my free face mask! The first is their Herbalism Cleanser which I found to be alright though I hated the smell. It smelled like nature (don't laugh!). I'm just not a big fan of that smell. The other one is the Let The Good Times Roll Cleanser. It was a Christmas product so i stocked up on a another one before they sold out. These aren't recommended for oily skin but I don't use it every night. It makes your skin feel baby smooth and you smell like caramel popcorn! I have a travel sized Body Shop Shower Gel in Madagascan Vanilla, which I took away with me when I went to Melbourne. Usually i don't like vanilla smells but I loved this one. I got another one of these for Christmas that I'm saving for another trip. Lastly I have the Girlz Only Dry Shampoo for Brunette. This is a really cheap alternative for Batiste and it works amazing! I want to try out the Batiste but they're always out of the brunette one at Priceline.

This post isn't the most exciting of posts but I thought I would show you guys the stuff I've used up which is what I generally use on an every day basis.
