Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick – ‘Miranda May’ <3

Hi Guys! 

I know I’ve been pretty quiet on the blogging front recently – things have been pretty hectic since New Year so it definitely feels good to sit at my laptop and type away (tappety tap tap) about something that I love!

Yes today I am reviewing the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in the shade ‘Miranda May’ (£23) and can I just say, I bought this ONLINE. Yes, I bought a CT lipstick….ON. LINE. WITHOUT SEEING IT IN PERSON.

Am I mad? Most probably, yes. Lol I also bought a foundation on the internet which must mean I’m positively doolally. (what a nice word to say, it just rolls off the tongue).

What’s In My Travel Make Up Bag?!

Hello People, 

So a few weeks ago I uploaded my video that tells you all about my travel make up and travel skincare and what I like to take it all in. I go through my favourite multi tasking skincare and make up products to show you exactly how light I like to travel depending on what types of looks I’m going for.

My make up bag gets considerably heavier if my travelling involves a night out so if it’s just a chilled weekend then I can usually get away with a few essentials.

Go on, give it a watch and then leave a like if you enjoyed it!

Thanks guys,

90’s Matte Make Up Tutorial!

I am so excited to show you this tutorial!! – I filmed a 90’s brown toned make up tutorial, with the main star of the show being the Nyx Liquid Suede lipstick in the shade ‘Vintage’ which is a gorgeous dark brown shade. Give it a watch if you want to see how to get this look! It’s really quick and easy 🙂

The eyes have a mix of matte shadows to add to the 90’s feel of the look – I really love this and think it’s perfect for day or night time.

Thanks for reading/watching/being in my internet space

Nyx Liquid Suede Matte Lipsticks – A Revelation!

Oh myyy goodness – I have been so excited to review these products!

A common theme throughout the past few weeks is that things I have seen popping up on my Instagram feed have been making their way into my shopping basket, be it physical or virtual (and I have paid for them, no pilfering going on around here).

The two shades I picked up in the Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipsticks are beautiful. I bought the shades Soft Spoken and Vintage. Soft Spoken is a beautiful pinky brown and Vintage is a more deep 90’s brown which is AMAZING. Vintage in particular is so on trend that it almost pains me. Expect to see a lot of Instagram pics of these filling up my feed!

I already love both of these liquid lipsticks and everything about them is perfect…

Nyx Liquid Suede Lipsticks

NYX LIQUID SUEDE LIPSTICK SWATCHES SOFT SPOKEN VINTAGE

They are pretty affordable – you can buy these for £6.50 and you get a lot for your money. The formula of the liquid lipsticks is thick and velvety, they apply really nicely because the doe foot applicator is just the right shape to outline and fill in your lips really neatly. *not so fun fact, I thought Doe Foot was actually a specific name for the applicator like Dauphort but then I realised in a D’oh moment*

Soft Spoken Nyx Liquid Suede Lipstick

The staying power of these liquid lipsticks is insane. I wore Soft Spoken ALL day today and although I could feel my lips become a tiny bit drier than usual it wasn’t anywhere near uncomfortable. I drank several teas (lol) and although I saw some product come off onto the mug like a trendy half smile, you couldn’t tell from looking at me that any had moved from my lips.

Vintage Nyx Liquid Suede Lipstick

I think if you are buying one of these I would always opt for the more nude shades where it doesn’t matter if it’s not crisp round the edges. They have bright reds and purples within this range but I’m not sure this formula is the best way to wear those colours.

I’m really happy with these liquid lipsticks and I can’t wait to wear them all the time!

Who started the Matte Revolution?!

So, if you are aware of any beauty or make up trends you will know that the biggest trend of this year so far is matte lips. In fact, I think it’s possible that matte anything is all the rage at the moment! This to me is a pretty weird trend and I think that Kylie Jenner is the root cause of it all.

You’ll all know this now, Kylie Jenner had cosmetic improvements to her face and lips to basically, look like a completely different (and to her, more beautiful) person. This change she made has spawned a business idea – it was furled up into a little roll, put into the barrel of a gun and blown into the beauty arena with tremendous power. We all know the Kardashian-Jenners are all into money: making money, spending money and talking about money.

So it all makes sense that the big business Kylie has started to build is all about matte lips!

nude matte revolution post

The weird thing I find about matte lips as a trend is that I haven’t seen THAT much of it on the runways. (I may have been missing something here, if I have someone please enlighten me)

Even weirder, I think it’s actually a pretty uncomfortable beauty trend. Matte lips are not comfortable to wear.

They are drying, they showcase the coolest undertones (some of which are so sepia toned they just look dead) and it can require a lot of effort for day to day. We aren’t like the Kardashians and we don’t have people to come blow dry our hair, or apply our make up to go to the shops lol.

Yet, Kylie’s cottoned on to the power of social and the press and she has managed to create Kylie Lip Kits that consist of a lip liner and a matte liquid lipstick in nude colours that are selling out everywhere! Other brands have pre-empted this and seen the opportunity – right off the top of my head I can name Kat Von D, Nyx, Colourpop, LA Girl, Revlon and Stila as brands that have created matte lip options to let you nail this trend affordably. **Shown above are the NYX Liquid Suedes, if you want to take a look you can buy them here, I will be reviewing them for you soon**

This was kind of a little post to discuss the trend and how weird it is – it’s not a rant, it’s not a suggestion, it’s more of a – ‘look how powerful trends can be when you have access to the right tools, and means discussion’.

What are your thoughts on the matte lips trend? Do you like it? Do you wear it?

P.S. I’m not saying I won’t try it because I will – even if it means investing in tonnes of moisturising lip balms…

Thanks for reading 🙂

My Top Lipsticks with Swatches! MAC, Nyx, Topshop…

Hi everyone! 

If I’ve been a bit quiet on the blogging front I apologise – things are pretty darn busy round these parts. Today I have a new video to bring to your attention! I was inspired by Kaushal Beauty to film my own Lip Swatch video which features my favourite lipsticks within my collection so you can see what they look like on, the formula/colour pay off etc.

I found her video really useful as it gave me an idea of what the lipsticks look like on brown skin tones – this will show you what kind of undertone the lipstick has (it could have a blue undertone which makes teeth look whiter, or an orange undertone which is slightly harder to pull off)

I hope you enjoy watching! I’m pretty proud of this video as I tried to edit it to music a bit!

🙂

Thanks for watching/reading my words that I write

**EXCLUSIVE – read until the end for a snapshot of 2015 for Roshni Reviews!**

As you know I had a Body Shop Advent Calendar at Christmas and I thought I would start the new year by running over the last few things I received after Christmas! This has been a lovely advent calendar to open, filled with great value products, perfect minis for going away and little surprises.

I’ve loved the unusual products the most – things like the Eye Gel, the little heart soaps and the Fuji Green Tea range which smells amaaazing!

Here I’ll now show you the last 6 days of the advent calendar taking us up to Christmas day! I can’t believe it’s 2016 now!

In the last 6 days we had:

  • Honey Lip balm
  • Purple (think it’s blackberry) scented heart soap
  • Strawberry scented hand cream
  • Emery board
  • Italian Summer Fig Perfume (not entirely sure what I think of this yet…)
  • Bright red nail polish!

I’m sad there will be no more advent calendar doors to open but I am excited for what is going to happen this year!

AS PROMISED…THIS YEAR IN A SNAPSHOT:

I’m so excited to see what happens this year and I’m pleased to say I’m still enjoying blogging just as much as when I first got into it 🙂

I hope you all had an amazing new year and all the best for 2016 😀

Lots of love,

Week 3 – The Body Shop Advent Calendar!

The thought of waking up and not having a little present each morning is a bit sad but I’ve really enjoyed opening my advent calendar!

I’ve also started thinking about different ways I can use the box after…I’ll do a little post on this after!

So here I can show you the things I have got in the 12th – 19th days of Christmas!

Why I’m Obsessed with Instagram…

If anyone follows me on Instagram, they’ll know that I quite like it. I post a lot and I usually go on it around 2 – 3 times a day. Go through my feed and double tap on anything that takes my fancy, it’s such an EASY way to explore photography and it fits right into our convenient, time limited day to day lifestyles.

It gives you the opportunity to experiment with photography and you don’t even need a big fancy camera in order to do it – I find my iPhone 6s camera is just right.

IMG_7606

One of my favourite things about Instagram is when you come across a great account that shows sped up make up tutorials. Make up feeds are my favourite kind to browse through and I’ve tried my hand at some close up pictures too but am still practising! For those I tend to ignore my front camera and use a mirror so that I can use my back camera instead which is much much better quality.

I like following large brands Instagram accounts because it’s a great way of finding out what their newest products and sale offers are – some of my favourites are Essie, Bombay Hair, Nars, Benefit and Make Up Geek (which I’ve just heard that you can get on Beauty Bay!).

Have you guys got any favourite Instagram accounts you can recommend following? 🙂

Week 2 – The Body Shop Advent Calendar!

Hello People!

Now, having had the second week of my Body Shop ’24 Happy Days’ Advent Calendar, I can reveal the goodies that have been living in those teeny tiny boxes for the past couple of weeks. There has been a mix of skincare and make up, I was hoping for some more make up orientated products but there’s still some days left!

You can see Week 1 here!

Grab a cup of tea and take a look at days 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 :)…

This week we have had:

  • Vitamin E Hydrating Toner
  • Body Shop Eyelash Curlers
  • Elderflower Unperformed Eye Gel
  • Heart Soap
  • Almond Hand Cream

Out of these I was really pleased to get the Almond Hand Cream which is a staple in my nails routine and I’m really intrigued by the Elderflower Eye Gel. I hate Elderflower smells which is why I’m particularly pleased that this has no smell.

I’m excited to see what comes out of the little boxes next week! 😀

Have any of you guys got this advent calendar? What do you think of the Body Shop products? 🙂

Thank you for reading everyone, I hope you’re all getting in the Christmas spirit because I am!!
