Revlon Colorburst Lipbutters - Review and the colors I own :)

Revlon Colorburst Lipbutters are one of my favorite lip products! I Love them and let me tell you why...

Colors I own from left-right
Wild watermelon, Raspberry Pie, Créme Brulee, Sweet Tart, Strawberry Shortcake. 

First off the packaging is just adorable, so colorful and pretty.
But the main reason why I love the Lipbutters is that they are so moisturizing and give a great color payoff.
They lighter colors are sheer but still manage to give you color while the darker colors are just like an amazing lipstick with a gloss over it.
They are not sticky at all (like some lipgloss) They feel like a lip balm. Very smooth on the lips, they have a beautiful sheen to them.
They color selection is really good, from nude to deep raspberry color.

These are the colors I own: 
(There is one missing that I bought the other day but I took these photos a while back so I will post a whole lips of the day later this week with the one that is missing)

(Here are the swatches that I did on my pretty pale skin haha:)

Here are all the colors on my lips

Strawberry Shortcake
Light, milky pink color, very pretty everyday cool toned pink.

Créme Brulee
A beautiful Nude color, perfect with a smoky eye

Sweet Tart
The first color I picked up, Bright Pink, it is much brighter in person than on camera

Raspberry Pie
My favorite! Raspberry Pinky Red, it is darker in person than on a camera (My camera is crap)
It has been such a winter color for me, I wore it so much and it is beautiful!

Wild Watermelon
New here in the UK for the summer collection, a total melon color, a great spring/summer color, It looks like a juicier version of your lips.

The Color that is missing is Sorbet but I will post about that color later this week,

I know everyone loves these already and I think they will always be re-purchased for me when I run out.
Overall these are a must have and I totally recommend the lip butters :)
What is your favorite Lipbutter?

Mani-Monday #1 - No7 Afternoon Tea

I bought this nail polish a while back. I love the metallic shine and the taupe, brown, gray color it has. this is the No7 Afternoon Tea. It does retails for £6.75 but I recommend that you wait for the £3 off voucher that No7 brings out every few months and these polishes will become very affordable.

They have a large flat brush and it is so easy to use. I like the formula and I feel like it stays on for few days without chipping. 

I love the name, Afternoon Tea, I feel like it describes the color perfectly! Right?

I have been playing around with editing these photos, I made the edges round, maybe you won't even notice but I think they look great. I try to take all my photos myself with my old camera and I try to make them work haha. Well I do like it...

Anyway I hope you are having a good Monday so far, I always feel like Monday is the day I have fresh nail polish on so this is the perfect day for NOTD, I will post Mani-Mondays (Manicure Monday) regularly :)

Sunday Obsession #7 - 10 Minutes, 10 Products Face

I love Sundays, I am obsessed over Sundays. I hardly never work Sundays and I love doing nothing, watching TV, catching up with friends, going for a nice cup of coffee and reading. But sometimes the thought of putting make up on a Sunday really drags me down... It is supposed to be a relaxing day, but today I had to go out and run some errands so I grabbed few products and gave myself 10 minutes to do my makeup, It was even under 10 minutes so this easy, quick flattering look is a great everyday look. 

This is such a basic look and it really makes me look awake and put together, much better than running out with nothing on :) haha

Soap and Glory Foundation and Primer in A Good Light
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder 
Maybelline Fit Me concealer
Garnier Roll-On Anti Dark Circles
Mac Blush in Peachykeen
Mac Eyelash curlers
No7 Eyeshadow in Matte Calico
No7 Eyeshadow in Mink
Maybelline Rocket Mascara Waterproof
Mac Lipstick in Cut a Caper

What products do you grab for a quick look?

Thanks for reading as always

NOTD - Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Lychee

I just bought this Nail polish and I spoke about it in this post here. 
I have been wanting a neutral color for a while and I think it is a very beautiful color. 

Excuse my dry cuticles I am trying to sort them out and I condition them every day but it is just so cold outside and they dry so easily. 

But the color is so opaque and this is only two coats and no top coat. The polish is just so shiny and nice.

What do you think? Do you like the nude nail color?

Oops I did it again... New things in..

Today was a really rough day for me.. I went to the dentist and unfortunately she could not continue with my treatment and I need to be referred to a specialist or a dental hospital. 

She numbed me extra well and I could not feel anything around my tooth but if she touched the top of the root I got shooting pains.. I was in tears again and the main reason was frustration, I just want this to be finished :(

So I had to go into Boots after my appointment since I had a prescription and while I was waiting for it to be ready I had to exchange few things and pick up a small gift for my sister and since there were few offers on I grabbed three things for myself.. and like I said I had to exchange few things so I hardly spent any money..! :)

Revlon Lipbutter in Wild Watermelon, this color still has not been put on display but I saw it the other day (in the back) while I was at work and I had to have it! It is the perfect spring/summer color. 

No7 Instant Radiance foundation, I have seen Pixiwoo (check out their youtube channel here) talk about this foundation and recommend it so I decided to try it out myself since I love the No7 Stay Perfect foundation. 

Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in 10 Lychee, I love Barry M Nail polishes in general and I saw Estée from Essiebutton talk about this polish and she was wearing it (link the video here) and it looked really nice so I picked it up.

Well this is just a quick post for today and hopefully tomorrow I will be getting my hair cut but until next time...

Thanks for reading

Where have I been?- Small Boots Haul!!

Today I was sitting in Costa with my hot cup of latte and my Kindle reading some of my favorite blog... The whole time I was thinking it has been ages since I posted a blog post :( Why you may ask have I been missing from the blog world?

At the moment, me and Ethan are sitting in the dining room with our TV and some boxes. Last week we had to empty our room so all my belongings are in boxes and bags around the house. So most of my make up is tucked away until we finish sorting our room out. We had builders in and out the whole last week and now all we have to do is paint the walls and the room will be ready. 

Another thing is that I have a dentist appointment tomorrow and over the last few weeks I have been in the worst pain of my life. Dramatic I know but anyone who has had a major tooth pain will understand, and throw an infection on top of the tooth pain and you might get an idea. But keeping positive it is getting fixed!

So to start getting the ball rolling again, I will be posting more everyday things and yesterday after work I did some shopping... (at Boots obviously)

I stocked up on my No7 face wipes as Boots is doing the £5 off voucher off all No7 Skincare. So each pack is £2 (I also have a discount card and I get them even cheaper).
These face wipes are amazing, they are one of my favorite and I even prefer them over my Simple face wipes.
I do think that £7 for each pack is a bit too much but they are totally worth it. And every few months Boots does the £5 off vouchers.
They clean my face really well and the best part is that they don't leave a wet or a sticky feeling on your face.
I totally recommend these wipes :)

Another purchase was the Soap and Glory 2 in 1 Foundation and Primer. It is normally £11 but was on a offer for £8 and I had a Soap and Glory Voucher from the gift box I got over Christmas and that was £3 off cosmetics. So it was only £5 ad the discount.
I tried it for the first time today and I think I kinda like it. I will do a better review later but it applied nicely and the finish was like a primer but it had a light coverage. So I am excited about trying this foundation - primer out.

These two things have been on my need-to-buy list for a long time. 
The first is the Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Permanent Taupe, I don't know why I did not have this color... It is super easy for everyday makeup. 
The one on the right is the Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in Berry, I already have two other colors and the Peach color is one of my favorite blush and I wanted one of the darker colors to play with.

So that was my little Boots Haul and a tiny update... I will continue with my Foundation Days and I have decided that when My Little Corner Facebook page hits 100 likes I will have a giveaway with few of my favorite products :) So feel free to like it here and share it if you feel like it :)
