Review - Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipsticks

"Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick, incorporates a unique blend of three super-moisturisers – polypeptides, hyaluronic acid and natural collagen – to hydrate lips intensely and in depth, lips look and feel up to 70% more hydrated."

Hello everyone, finally got round to writing up my review for the Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks that I really have been enjoying! This is a fantastic lipstick with a huge variety of colours. It leaves your lips feeling moisturised, hydrated and soft and looks new and fresh for a long time. They glide on nicely and the pigmentation is really good. They aren't drying at all and they leave a really nice sheen on the lips so no need for lip gloss  The staying power is quite good too, especially for the price. The colours that I picked up were "215 Sweetheart Tulips", "260 Amethyst Shimmer" and "720 Notting Hill Nude", which are some absolutely gorgeous colours to add to my make up collection. The packaging is  very sleek and gorgeous and looks much more expensive and the colour range has a colour for absolutely everybody!

 215 Sweetheart Tulips
Sweetheart Tulips is a bright warm toned pink with shimmer, that is a gorgeous everyday colour that I have been wearing a lot recently. It is quite a bright pink, but its not "too in your face" that would restrict you from wearing it during the daytime as well as the evening. This lipstick has some great pigmentation and only takes 1 swipe across the lips for them to be fully covered, which is great!

 260 Amethyst Shimmer


Amethyst Shimmer is a gorgeous deep berry sort of pink colour with some shimmer. The colour is bold and quite vibrant against my skin, but in a pretty, wearable way, which for me is more an evening sort of colour as I don't think I'd pull it off during the day. It is a beautiful violet-pinkish colour that is the perfect balance of subtle brightness-elegant, not too in-your-face, but not dull either, which is perfect for me.

720 Notting Hill Nude


I bought this in the shade 'Notting Hill' because I was desperate for a new nude lipstick. It is very moisturising and is nice and glossy. It applies really nicely and the colour builds up within 1 or 2 swipes across the lips. Its a lovely everyday sort of colour, even perfect if you want to wear more heavy eye make up and have simple lips, also a lipstick that is wearable all year long!

Making A Statement

Today's post is going to show you a few of my favourite statement necklaces that I currently own. I think that having some good statement jewellery is an essential part of your wardrobe, as they help to dress up any outfit and just add that extra elegance and class to both daytime and evening wear, as well as styling up any casual outfit.













What statement pieces do you currently own? Is there any that I have that you would like to purchase? Is there any you would recommend to me?

If you would like to know where any of my necklaces are from, leave a comment and I will get back to you.

Outfit Creation #1

I've decided to change up my blog a little bit and focus a lot more on creating some outfits that I would wear or are to a certain style that I think look lovely together, to share with you all. To create these outfit looks, I've use the Polyvore Editor, to select the clothing items, and put together a selection of outfits, fitting a certain occasion. Today's look is more of a formal, going out summery outfit, keeping it quite simple but sophisticated.

What do you think of the outfit I have put together? Is it something you would wear? Are there any items you like from it?

New Product Purchases

Hello everyone, another short and sweet post here to show you a few beauty items that I have recently picked up, that I haven't tried before and wanted to give a go. The majority of these were on special offer, which made me cave in and purchase them! These products were purchased mainly in Superdrug, except the Vaseline Moisturiser, which is from Boots.


Have you tried any of these products before? Would you try any of these products in the future? Would you recommend me any products that you have been loving recently? Would you like to see reviews of any of these before you try them ?

Review - Rimmel Apocalips

17:07 Laura Thornberry 0 Comments

"The intense colour of a lipstick with a smooth lacquer shine? Impossible, right? Wrong! New Apocalips* Lip Lacquer combines the best of both worlds with its ground-breaking formula - a luscious liquid packed with pure colour pigments for rich colour, phenomenal shine and supreme comfort that lasts all day. The lip lacquer formula gives your lips colour so strong and bold that your pout is bound to make an impact!"
- Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer Media Release

So for today's post, I have finally been able to give my views and opinions on two of the Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquers. This product comes in a great range of colours, in which I picked up Luna and Stellar. These liquid lip colours have some of the greatest pigmentation, with only one swipe provides an opaque colour with a glossy finish instantly. The product is creamy and the foam applicator makes it easy to apply smoothly and evenly on the lips. They are very easy to apply, the doe foot applicator allows the lacquer formula to glide on easily and smoothly, also allowing you to be more accurate and precise when applying to the lips. I also find these very long lasting, even after eating or drinking, which is a definite bonus as I don't find myself having to keep applying the product.

Luna is a beautiful nude like warm true peach shade which is brightening and warming, which adds such a subtle hint of colour to the lips, a definite everyday sort of colour. It’s really a lovely peachy-nude shade that would be flattering on a lot of skin tones. It’s also completely non-sticky and doesn’t smell weirdly or perfumed like many lipsticks and glosses. 

Stellar is probably my favourite out of the two shades. An absolutely stunning bold coral red colour, that looks absolutely gorgeous on the lips. For me, its more of an evening lip colour, as I'm afraid I wouldn't be brave enough to pull it off as an everyday sort of look. A definite must have if you're out to make a statement!

Tried and Tested Mascaras

14:16 Laura Thornberry 2 Comments


Hello lovelies! I realised I haven't posted since Saturday, which is quite bad as I did want to post every 2-4 days! However, today's post will be sharing with you some mascara's that I've been using or have used, and to share my views with them with you! Please feel free to leave any of your favourites or any recommendations in the comments!

This is the first mascara that I have used from this range and I'm not completely sure if I would try any other mascaras from Collection 2000.  However, it did have some good points; it's really easy to apply, doesn't clump badly and instantly makes my lashes look darker and longer and for only £2.99 it is a bargain mascara. I just don't think it gives the right effect and look that I prefer from a mascara, as I like one that gives a lengthening and voluminous effect in one.

The only reason I picked up a Topshop mascara is I've heard many bloggers rave about how good there make up selection is, in which I ended up trying out this mascara. I like the fact is has a nice even brush that helps to get all lashes, has a really dark black colour, long lasting and you can actually notice it working well to create a voluminous look. The only thing I didn't really like about the mascara was the perfume like scent, which was a bit off putting.

In the past, I've used quite a few products from Rimmel and been very happy with the end result, until I started to use this. I don't know if its just me, but I didn't really get on with this product at all! From using this mascara a few times, I felt that my lashes looked quite short and clumpy and not much volume was added, which disappointed me.

Accessorize Volumising Mascara
This is probably one of my most used mascara's and I really enjoy using it. It defines, separates, lengthens and volumises the lashes really well to give a natural look or is very buildable to give more of a dramatic look. The brush is a nice size and the mascara doesn't dry or clump on the applicator, which helps when applying to the lashes. It lasts all day without smudging or leaving the lashes feeling brittle and dry. The packagings pretty cute, covered in animal print and with pink roses which I really like aswell.

2True Eye Lengthening Mascara No 1 Black £1.99
This is probably the cheapest mascara that I have bought, and to be honest with you I wasn't actually disappointed with it. It helps to thicken, separate and build lashes, without clumping and give such a natural daytime look.

Rimmel Extra Super lash Mascara Black/Black 101 £4.99 
This is another Rimmel product, and it's one of those products that I don't particularly love or hate. It gives the lashes a really dark black coat and gives some reasonable length and volume, but not to the degree that I would like. It does have a tendency to clump slightly, so you do have to be careful when applying.


This is a really nice mascara, it lasts all day and doesn't smudge which is something I look for. However, the I did find the applicator quite weird and flimsy to use as its plastic, and the brush was quite a weird size and shape. Also, it did lengthen my lashes, but did leave them quite clumpy and spider like, which for me is a big no! I think this is probably something I wouldn't use again, the product was over hyped and the only thing that really drew me towards it was the packaging.

This mascara workswell at thickening the eyelashes and adding a lot of length, however it does get slightly clumpy and flaky and the product does build up heavily on the brush, which doesn't help when applying. I found the mascara itself to be quite a dry formula which doesn't really give a nice effect on the lashes and does make them look quite awful.

Which mascara's have you been using recently? Have you tried any of the ones I have featured? Would you recommend any for me ?
