|Rimmel Apocolips Celestial 101|
Rimmel's newest line of lip product is Apocolips which claims to be neither a lipstick, or a gloss, they say "it's bigger than both". I would have to say it's an incredibly pigmented lip gloss. The colour payoff is as good as any lipstick, but you also have a glossy shine which makes lips vibrant, look fuller, and feel moisturised. The doe foot applicator is actually really easy to use. It has an indentation near the tip which collects a lot of product and allows you to apply enough colour from one dip in the tube. The edge of the applicator allows you to swipe right around the edge of your lips to give a really defined lip line. I'm getting a couple of hours wear out of this before needing to reapply, but that's as much as I usually get from a lipstick. For longer wear, I use a lip liner, however this tones down the glossy factor a little, but at the same time, reduces that stick factor which can happen when your hair blows across your face on a windy day. I'm absolutely loving the shade Celestial 101. It's a vibrant coral pink, and in my opinion, it's the most wearable of the 8 shades available. My was $13 at Chemist Warehouse, which in Australia is a pretty reasonable price for a lip colour.
|Goat Moisturising Body Wash|
Goat Moisturising Body wash caught my eye at Chemist Warehouse because it was only $6, and secondly, I was curious about the cute goat on the bottle. Goats milk is actually the second ingredient in the list on the pack, so this body wash really does have a significant amount of goats milk in it. Because it's moisturising, all the products in the Goat Soap range are said to be suitable for all skin types including those with eczema, sensitivity and acne. I'm not sure if the goats have a thing for eating nuts, because this actually smells like a mix between almond essence and vanilla. I don't love the scent, but it's not bad either. I've found this to be a nice body wash, it's not drying at all, and I love a handy pump pack. Because it's great value as well, I will be purchasing Goat Moisturising Body Wash again.
|Rimmel Salon Pro in 701 Jazz Funk|
Rimmel's Salon Pro with "Lycra" promises to be flexible, super durable and chip proof for up to 10 days. I just got the usual three days a polish normally lasts for me before the chips set in. I do love the shade Jazz Funk though. It's a beautiful coral pink and actually goes perfectly with my Apocolips Celestial lip colour. The brush is my preferred shape, flat (but a bit too thick and bushy). The finish is very glossy which I really like too. The formula isn't rocking my world, but I do love the colour. I'm planning to reapply today.
I've been wondering for a long time if clinical strength anti-perspirant deodorants really perform better than the regular kind. At up to 3 times more expensive than regular antiperspirants, I didn't purchase until I found a good deal. I'm happy to report that yes, the Rexona Women Clinical Protection does keep me and my clothes much fresher. If you're happy with your current regime, keep it up, but if you need a little help, this Rexona Clinical Protection really does work.
I've been looking for a compact to keep in my bag for touch ups throughout the day. Maybelline's Fit Me compact is just the thing. Attached to the underside of the pan is a good sized mirror and a compartment to hold your powder puff. The actual powder is superfine and the puff applies a very sheer amount. Just enough to fix up shine, and give a little coverage, without cakiness or covering up your bronzer and blush. The puff and the powder aren't top quality, but this is exactly what I was looking for, a inexpensive all in one compact for out and about, so I can keep my more expensive powders at home. Love this powder compact. My skin is quite fair, my shade is 225.
|Bull Pins professional strength bobby pins in gold|
I've been driven mad lately by the rubbish quality bobby pins available at the chemist/drugstore. Both prongs of the pin will cross over each other before I've even got it near my hair. After quite a search, I finally found some good quality bobby pins at at Hairhouse Warehouse, a hairdresser and hair supplies store. Bull Pins are sturdy and heavy duty. Put one in your hair, and it will stay all day. No crossing over, and no falling out of your bun. These ones come in two shades for light or darker hair. It did cost $20, so they are expensive, but this pot with a handy screw on lid should last for years. What a relief to finally find some good quality "Bull Pins".
