Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer Review & Swatches

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer aka Apocalips Lip Lacquer as they are referred to in the UK are now available in US drugstores. Show Off Lip Lacquer is available in a range of fourteen shades and is a liquid lipstick slash gloss with full color coverage.

These are an exciting release as it seems like we’ve been literally awaiting their arrival on US shores for ages now. We also happened to get a bigger range of shades as the UK release only has eight colors available.

These are in special displays at the moment but they will become part of the Rimmel general catalog display later this Fall.

Let’s take a look!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Review & Swatches

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

Thanks to my makeup sis Christine for not allowing me to give up on Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick. Revlon recently reintroduced Super Lustrous Lipstick with a shine finish for Summer 2013/Fall 2013 in a range of new shades.

This newly reformulated lipstick now has a shiny finish however, some of the shades didn’t appeal to me so I casually slipped past them more than once at the drugstore. My reader and friend Christine mentioned how incredible they were and how there was indeed a coral I’d probably love and how I should try them and well, needless to say, she was convincing.

Unfortunately the coral was sold out but I did pick up Terra Copper which also happens to be a very me shade.

Here are my thoughts!

Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Moisturizer Review

Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Moisturizer

Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Moisturizer sounds like the perfect moisturizer for me today. You know the “I stayed up too late wasting my life away gaming” moisturizer that gives you back your glow because your sleep deprived and dehydrated from sitting at your desk all night?

I got a preview of The Last of Us and won’t admit to the amount of time I’ve spent on it so far. Hours of my life I’ll never get back. Excuse me while I call in this review and get back to the game.

No seriously, part of my skincare issues stem from the fact I am simply not getting enough sleep so I’m wondering if Origins Ginzing Energy Boosting Moisturizer can restore my glow. Plus did I mention it’s a gel moisturizer…score! Dontcha just love gel moisturizers for Summer? I can’t be alone here.
