Revlon splurge.. Or save!



I finally took the bullet, and bought my self some new treats! The Revlon Just bitten kissable balm stains are without a doubt my favourite lipstick products, Only down side aside was the lack of colours originally there was only 7 shades! No fear Revlon have now released 2 new additions to the product A matte range and  a Lacquer range. Yayyy!

I decided to pick up two one from each range, Come on you can't just buy one it was 3 for two!

Revlon colour burst Lacquer balm in Demure Reserve 
Revlon Colour Burst Matte balm in Elusive Insaisissable 

Both £7.99

Wow what long names.. How people come up with these things baffles me!
Demure Reserve a very glossy light peachy pink, Most of my lipstick/balms are very bright bold shades I wanted something a little more natural for everyday. 

Demure Reserve is a matte Mauve pink, As I have dry lips I was very sceptical about this one but yes it is very matte but still lovely, opaque and hydrating at the same time.


I am crossing my fingers to hope there as wonderful as the original Just bitten Kissable balm stains which do very much stain your lips.. They have the same peppermint scent and cool finish which i very much love.. I will report back and let you know how they compare.

And as you know.. It was 3 for 2 you HAD to get a freebie product that is just like the law! I have very dry skin and don't use powders alot, but on days when I have needed a powder I have been seriously lacking in owning any powders.. At £7.99 it is more than I generally would spend on a powder, when you can get the infamous Rimmel stay matte powder for a mere £2.99 but I have heard alot of good things about this finely milled natural powder I already own the Nearly Naked foundation so I know this won't disappoint.

On a side note. Never forget to use up your boots coupons you get in the post or use those little pink machines that you ALWAS see in boots they are a godsend for coupons and money off vouchers, I spent £15.97 and had 2 vouchers, one double points voucher and one 400 points when you spend £12 on make-up which you know is very easily done! I got around £6 back on my boots card which I love to save up and splurge guilt free.. that means I paid under £10 for 3 Revlon make-up items that should have come to £23.97.. Bargain!

  1. Revlon is my favourite 'drugstore' brand but I haven't tried either of these product, everyone raves about the powder so ill definitely have to give it a go, your skin looks flawless in these photographs what are you wearing foundation wise?
