Rimmel Lasting Finish Soft Colour Mono Blush

Price: 9.95$ from Priceline, Chemist warehouse, Coles, Woolworths. Big W, Target.

Few months back I bought Rimmel blushes from Kmart for only 2$ (Kmart Haul). I am using them for last few months and really love them.

 Rimmel blush has plastic packing with small brush. The brush is very standard not super quality but can be used for touch ups. I recommend using your own brush instead of this little one.

                                                             Genuine Plum and Tuscany

 Tuscany and Genuine Plum

                                                      Swatches L to R Tuscany and Genuine Plum

 Genuine Plum is a kind of semi matte pink. Tuscany is also semi matte brown colour which can be used as contouring. These blush are highly pigmented, finely milled and easy to apply.You do not need to rub brush on it, only light touch to the product can give you intense colour. These blushes give medium to full coverage. They apply evenly on my checks and blend beautifully. Genuine Plum gives me almost matte pink colour while Tuscany gives light brown colour which works well to apply under check bones for contouring. Both shades look natural on my skin tone. They give semi matte finish, and do not highlight open pores, acne scare or any other imperfection on my face. The only problem with these blushes are powder fall out upon application

This blush works really very well with my dry skin,  they do not highlight or cling to my dry patches. They last for the long time on my checks, and begin to fade after 5-7 hours, which is very decent time of wear.

Rimmel blush is available in four different shades, I find that Coral and Pink rose are also beautiful shades which are suitable for all skin tones. 

I really like this products, For the price I must say that its a must have budget buy. This blush is great for those who are looking semi matte blushes. I highly recommend this blush for every one. They are fragrance free and also suitable for sensitive skin.

My Rating:5/5

Dr LeWinn's Line Smoothing Complex S8 Hydrating Day Cream review

Price: 69$ from Priceline, Chemist warehouse, and selected pharmacies

I have dry skin and the harsh winters in Canberra make my skin even terrible. Dr LeWinn's day cream works really well with my dry skin and I am very impressed with this product.

The product has lovely lilac, golden and white packing and comes in a box with application instruction. When I first saw the jar I felt bit sad as I am not a fan of jar packing but when I opened the pack I found that it has easy to use dispenser. I really like the idea of push down dispenser, it not only keep ingredients stable but also make the product more hygienic.

The cream has very pleasant smell which is not so overpowering, It has thick consistency and feels silky smooth on application. I only need small amount to cover my entire face and neck. Upon application I notice that this cream absorbs quickly into my skin with out leaving greasy residue. I apply it in the morning and It keeps my skin hydrated for all day even I do not need to reapply it. I used it under makeup and found that it does not affect longevity of my make up. After few days of uses my dry patches were disappear and my skin felt fresh and healthy. Now after 3 weeks my skin looks radiant, hydrated and nourished. I do not have wrinkles yet but my fine line become more visible when my skin get dehydrated. This cream keep my skin hydrated and make my fine lines smooth.

I love this cream, I did little research on its ingredients and surprised to see that it has plenty of antioxidants, natural moisturising factors and skin repairing ingredients. So this cream contain all those ingredients which are essential to make our skin healthy and youthful. It does not contain SPF which is added benefit as some sunscreens are not suitable for sensitive skin and it is much better to use sunscreen separately before apply this cream.

I will recommend it for those who are looking for effective anti aging cream with powerful ingredient. This cream comes with very high price tag but its good idea to wait for sale and Dr LeWinn's often have great deals like 40% off or gift with purchase.

NP set, Model Co, Mirenesse and NYX Lip glosses review

Normally I do not prefer to wear lip glosses because of their poor staying power, I own only 4 lip glosses. Here is a quick review and comparison of all these four lip glosses.
  1. NYX butter gloss: 9.95$
  2. Model Co lip lights lip gloss: 19.95$
  3. NP set Lip gloss:  22$
  4. Mirenesse lip lift moisture shine lip gloss : 35$

Swatches left to right- NYX, ModelCo, NP set and Mirenesse
I have just wiped them with soft tissue and you can see all lip glosses have gone, even none of them leave a stain.

Packing: All of these lip glosses have nice packing while ModelCo and Mirenesse looks different and more attractive but the application wand of all these lip glosses are very good.

Price: There is a huge difference in the price rang of these four lip glosses, cheapest is NYX for 10$ while the most expensive is Mirenesse for 35$.

Availability: None of these lipglosses are available at Priceline (which is my favourite store),
NP set is available at target, big W, Myer,  NP out let and online.
Model Co is available at Woolworths, David Jones and online.
Mirenesse is available only online.
NYX is available only at target.

Quality: That is the main point, these 4 lip glosses have very similar quality. All of them are sheer, glossy and provide light to medium coverage. Model Co is sheerest, runny and provide lightest coverage. All these lip glosses are hydrating and gives luxurious glossy looks to my lips.

All of them have very bad staying power and last on my lips for very short time. they are sticky and my hair stick to m lips whenever I apply any of them. When Idrink something I find these lip glosses on cups, glasses and everywhere. None of these lip glosses gives lifting, plumping or any other affect.

Final verdict: In term of quality and price I think that NYX Butter gloss is the winner. Mirenesse is very overprice while NP set and Model co also does not worth 20$. NYX Butter gloss is very similar to Mirenesse lip gloss with the friction of price. 

If you are a fan of lip glosses, NYX butter gloss will never disappoint you. NYX butter gloss is also beauty heaven Glosscar winner.
