Rimmel Stay Blushed! Liquid Cheek Tint in 'Pop of Pink' [Review]

Dear readers,

Wishing you all happy holidays!

I know I've slacked a bit from blogging but I'm doing a Masters degree in English plus working and taking care of the house [chores etc] and I've no time left for myself. I'm leading a non existing life at the moment - I'm stuck in this boring routine which is making time pass so quickly I just can'f get a grip. 

If I'm not working I'm at university. By the time I'm back home I only feel like lounging about the house in a zombified state. 


Enough moping.

I've had this Rimmel Stay Blushed Liquid Cheek Tint for about three months now. To be completely honest I forget I have this because Benefit's Benetint is my go to blusher/cheek tint.

I got this from Boots when I was in the Uk.

Comes in a small, squeezy toothpaste-like tube and you get 14ml worth of blusher. 

The pinkness of the blusher is really similar to the pink of the packaging - it is a kind of bubblegum/antique/dusty rose kind of mix. Upon close inspection it does have slight shimmer in it which does not transfer on my cheeks [or I just can't see it].

It does give you a couple of seconds until you blend it before it sets. It gives a nice, natural rosy flush which I love in Winter and the colder months.

This lasts about 3-4 hours but I do find that blushers don't have great lasting power on me [except Benetint which stains like crazy].

I would recommend this for those ladies who would like to try out a cream based blush who would like to get a natural flush [and without the risk of overdoing it]

Pupa Milano Princess Collection [Limited Edition]

Dear readers,

Earlier this month, myself and a number of fellow bloggers where invited to a private viewing of the new limited edition collection by Pupa Milano - the Princess Collection. The shades in the collection are all soft and romantic, which makes this collection a must have since light, rosy colours have been all the rage recently.

You can choose from nail polishes [Lasting Colour] to lip glosses and even a fluffy nail art kit! Prices retail from as little as €5.60 for the Lasting Colour polishes to €19.50 for the gorgeous Eyeshadow  Palette, making Pupa products accessible to everyone.

I'll post a couple of reviews for some of the products from this collection which I am really loving in the coming days.

We were also introduced to Pupa's latest nail kits which are aptly called Party Queen, because oh boy, your nails will surely be the life and soul of the party! As with Pupa's other nail kits, with the Party Queen you get a base colour and a small container with large 'confetti' style glitter. They are available in 4 shades and they retail for €13.50. I really can't wait till I get my hands on these and I just know that they'll go down a treat for the Xmas holidays.

Pupa Milano are most famous for their gorgeous looking makeup palettes and sets, and this year they have truly outshone themselves, launching a collection which varies from cute looking dolls, to a fully mechanical working carillon palette;

I well and truly enjoyed the night, the great company and the yummy food - all courtesy of the ever so gracious Stephanie from Medimports.

All Pupa Milano products in Malta can be found in a number of selected pharmacies and stores all over Malta and Gozo. Do let me know if you would like more info and/or prices!

Much love,
