Lipstick and Perfume – a beauty review

We recieved this product in return for our honest review. However, all opinions expressed in this review post are our own.

beauty review - Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick

Recently I’ve been getting more and more interested in make up. Most people went through this phase at aged 13, but not me. I waited until my 30’s! I’ve been doing a little research though with regards to whats the best thing for those fine lines that have been popping up, what are the best products for dark spots as well as general make up advice.  So, when the guys over at Wow Free Stuff offered me a few beauty products to try, it was perfect timing.


First of all I received a Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in shade 096 Macaroon.

A lovely pink shade, this lipstick has a really pretty shimmer when it hits the light. The coverage is even and lasts a few hours once applied which is great. It doesn’t dry out your lips like some lipsticks can, instead it leaves them feeling lovely and moisturised making it a great option for day to day wear. There was also very little transfer which was great as with two young children, lip marks all over them is not a great look!

One thing I really liked about is that there was no stickiness to the finish as although the gloss finish is a fashionable look, I despise it when your hair gets stuck to your lips.

Someone else was also very impressed and loved mummys pink lips. In fact, everytime I’ve worn make up since (albeit, it was only once!) she has demanded that I make my lips pink!


Next I also received a bottle of Elizabeth Arden Beauty Eau de Parfum. Perfume is one of those things which is lovely to have but something I rarely treat myself to so I tend to rely on my birthday or Christmas to stock up on my supply which is why this was such a nice treat.

The perfume itself has a lovely fresh smell that reminds me of springtime. Floral but without being too sweet, this is a mature smell more suited to an adult than a teenager. It feels like a quality perfume and I am pleased to say that once applied it seemed to last for the day. I’m really pleased with it and will be wearing it over the summer.

And in case you’re wondering, this too also got the toddler seal of approval!

    When I was about 3 years old, my friend and I got our hands on my mum’s make up bag in the kitchen whilst our mums were in the living room drinking coffee. They found us covered head to toe in makeup and it took them ages to clean us up. I still chuckle when I think of it.
