Revlon Lip Butters - Swatches and Review

Over the past few weeks I have become a little obsessed with the Revlon lip butters. I have four shades to show you today:
- Tutti Frutti (015) an orange colour - lovely  for spring/summer but not too bright
-Pink Truffle (001) - a gorgeous brown -toned nude.
-Berry Smoothie (050) - pink - berry colour with a little bit of glitter
-Cotton Candy (045) - pale pink. I have been wearing this for school for a subtle bit of colour and to protect my lips.


Firstly, I'll give a quick review before I show the swatches. I was extremely surprised at how pigmented these were. I expected them to be more like tinted lip balms (despite the Colourburst advertising - duh!) but instead I found them more like a lip stick in terms of pigmentation.
The only shade I haven't worn loads is Tutti -Frutti, however, I did buy this for spring/summer so it's not that I don't like the shade.
Secondly, they are wonderfully moisturising, even after the colour has gone they feel so nourishing as they contain mango, shea and coconut butter which is brilliant as it means that you can skip lip balm. They have a lovely shine to them but aren't sticky so are a great alternative to gloss which I love but can't wear it with my hair down on a windy day - ergh, long hair struggles.
The only thing that would make them better is if they lasted slightly longer, however, they are really easy to apply even without a mirror so I just top them up every few hours.

Here are the swatches (I apologize that they aren't brilliant and my mouth looks weird but you can see the colour)

Pink Truffle
Tutti Frutti
Cotton Candy

I hope you liked this post, I would highly recommend these lip butters, they are £7.99 but usually stores such as Boots and Superdrug have offers on brands such as Revlon. 

I'd love to try some more colours so if you have any suggestions let me know!

Hairspray for Fringes - VO5 Ultimate Hold vs. Bed Head Masterpiece

This post is on yet another somewhat mundane issue - hairspray. There are so many brands to chose from and so many prices too! After going on holiday and forgetting hairspray (I have a fringe so use it daily to stop it looking funny) I picked up some VO5 Ultimate Hold as my usual Bed Head Masterpiece is quite pricey. So I thought I would put them to the test in a battle of skinted vs. minted.

Value for money: The Bed Head Masterpiece is considerably more at RRP £14.95 and has 60 ml less product than the Ultimate Hold (£3.29). However, one can of Masterpiece has now lasted me four months as you hardly have to use any. Also, it is much cheaper online at around £7.00. When I use the VO5 hairspray, I find I have to use a lot more for the same hold which makes the hair look like straw. However, you could buy many more cans of the VO5 for the price. 

Hold: The Bed Head is brilliant. It keeps my fringe in place even when I walk to school in the wind and unless the weather is appalling, my hair…

An Opportunity to Reflect and Say Thank You

Since starting A2, time has been rather limited, hence the lack of blog posts recently. With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, I thought I would take a moment to reflect on 2017 and summarise some of the best moments of the year.

My time at home is quickly coming to an end; in September, all being well, I'll be off to university. I didn't realise until quite recently how much I take for granted while I am living at home. This year has been a year of change and a year to grow up, turning 18 has made me realise just how soon independence is going to come.

Perhaps it is this growing independence that has caused 2017 to be the busiest and most eventful year to date. It's been a year of exams and planning and looking around universities and opportunities. Yet it's also been a year in which I feel as though I've appreciated the incredible friends around me.

Without further ado, here are just a few highlights of 2017.

Challenging a Holy Grail

It's probably a bit strange that my first blog post in a while is a foundation/makeup thing. It really has been a while since I've done anything like this because, let's be honest, anybody reading this is likely 100x more experienced and knowledgable about makeup than I am after spending the year rarely wearing it.

However, when I look online, I struggle to find foundation recommendations for people with similar skin to mine so I thought this might be of some use.

I have very fair skin so struggle to find anything from high street makeup brands (and high end most of the time) that's the right shade as my skin, despite being pale, doesn't particularly have pink undertones, which most foundations at the lighter end of the shade range tend to have.

The only foundation that I tend to buy other than the MAC Studio Fix fluid in NW10 (a tad too dark but good for going out) is the Revlon Colorstay Normal/Dry in 110 Ivory. When I first started to use this foundation, I used…
