Worth the hype? Revlon Balm stains

Hi guys!

So I'm starting this series 'Worth the hype?'. Being interested in beauty products, there are lots of things that are talked about and praised by youtubers and bloggers. Some worth talking about, and others that are not. This series is going to be about just that. My opinion on the many hyped up products. So to start off, the infamous Revlon balm thingos. Yes I can't be bothered to call them by their full name as it's super long and quite a tongue twister. 

Top two: Colorburst Matte Balm 
Bottom two: Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

245 Audacious

240 Striking

001 Honey

010 Darling

Top to bottom: Audacious, Striking, Honey, Darling

Out of the two ranges, I absolutely love the matte balms! Their super pigmented, last longer than a normal lipstick, and I find that the pointed tip allows better precision when applying it on your lips. The balm stains do stain the lips but they don't last as long as had hoped; a good 4-5 hours and the colour is pretty much gone after that, though they do last even after eating and drinking. They all have the minty scent which I really like.

There really isn't anything that I don't like about them (maybe except the price, though Australia always has it worse off when it comes to beauty products). They are a great product for those that are just getting into make-up or those that just love make-up. Some of my friends that aren't really into make-up have these and use it regularly. 

Have you tried these before? Which are you r favourite colours?

Product Empties #7

Hi guys!

Here is another post about my products I have used up! I always have the mindset to use my products up to try new things, but for some reason it takes me forever for me to finish things up.

The Body Shop Moringa Shower Gel
 This is quite a floral scent. It was quite overwhelming at first but it's quite refreshing on days when you feel gruggy and not well. I've bought a new shower product, though not this scent.

Cover Girl Lash Blast Fusion Water Resistant in Brown/Black
 I honestly don't know why I got this product. I don't find there is much difference with this and the original Lash Blast. But it is a good mascara for when you just want your lashes to look slightly thicker and darker. Will not re-purchase.

Aquamoist Whitening Cream
 Over time I feel like this did slightly lighten my scars, though not a miracle worker. It's more of a gel rather than a cream, so it's great for oily skin. Though one caution, use as little as possible. I found that if I used too much, my skin would feel sticky and would take a really long time to absorb the product. Still on the hunt for the best whitening product.

Perfume Samples: DKNY Be Delicious Flower Blossom Intense and Intense, Issey Miyake L'eau D'issey and L'eau D'issey Pour Homme
 I love all of the DKNY Be Delicious perfumes, and still debating which one to get a full size of. I got these while getting a wedding gift a while back. These were a limited edition product (I think) as they the scent is the same, but more intense. 
 The Issey Miyake perfumes I got in a Priceline gift from one of the packs. I actually prefer the Homme (which is meant for men) but I still wouldn't purchase the full size. They don't have a distinct scent like other perfumes and kind of reminds me of old people...
