Review | Stila convertible lip and cheek colour in Lillium

Stila is one of the brands that although i have many of their products , i don't really talk about them.  That was until now.  The convertible lip and cheek colour is basically a cream blush you can use on your lips too although i don't really do that as it tends to cling to dry patches on the lips.

This is my first ever cream blush as i have oily skin i felt that cream blush would just slip and slide on my skin.  Boy was i wrong!  This is great, it lasts for hours, blending is easy and the colour payoff is awesome.  I use my Real Techniques Stippling brush to apply this and i don't even feel the need to set it with powdered blush (although if you are in a hot and humid place, i would).

Lillium is a cool toned pink that admittedly doesn't look too natural on me unless i really blend it out.  Somehow it looks really bright but it does make a huge change to my usual barely there blush look.

It is £16 from boots , or their website.

Review | Mac Lipstick in Fanfare

Today I have another MAC lipstick to show you, this time it is Fanfare.

The MAC website describes Fanfare as a mid-tone yellow-pink.  I have to agree with that statement , it is a very wearable, natural colour (think my-lips-but-better).

It does in my opinon work with all skintones as it isn't overly yellow toned so even really pale skinned girls with pink undertones in their skin can work this shade.

It is a creamsheen finish which means it isn't drying and it has good colour payoff . It lasts 3-4 hours on my lips but do keep in mind I have really dry lips which may affect the wear time.

Price - £14 / $15
Where you can buy - MAC retaillers and their uk website or their usa website
