Less Provocative, More Evocative

I have never been in possession of the entire collection of any product before, but I got sent all 8 shades of the Rimmel Provocalips so for the first time, this is happening. Unfortunately I won't be doing lip swatches because I haven't found a way to photograph them acceptably enough to include in a blog review but I have tried them on so I'll be speaking about how I found them to be, and lots of bloggers have posted lip swatches for your viewing benefit. The Provocalips are basically long-wearing lip colours that come in a dual-ended tube (a throwback to being new at makeup and swatching cheap versions of these in Cosmetics Plus) They boast 16 hours of kiss-proof lip colour by way of their two-step application; step 1 being their intense colour liquid lipstick and step 2 being a lock & shine gloss applied over the top.

October Favourites

2014 has flown by. I can't believe it's the end of October but it's been crazy and busy so I'm quite thankful it's over. Spring brought an onslaught of weird transitional skincare needs as my skin struggled to adjust from cold and sunny to hot and humid. This meant catering to and curing some seriously weird skin. In other news, University assessment tasks have been hectic but life has been good. I finished off October on an excellent note.
