Revlon Spidey Sense Nail Polish*

The Amazing Spiderman 2 comes out today and they have collaborated with Revlon to create the Electric Chrome Range. A spidey inspired collection of six nail polishes to be added to Revlons usual nail lineup. Ultra pearl chrome finish polishes they have a real high impact feel to them. I have the shade Spidey Sense which I think is just the perfect name for the red. It’s a total Spiderman shade. I bet Peter Parker wears it on his toes.

Ever since I've been blogging I've been hearing people sing the praises of The Balm Mary Lou Manizer. It's a cult blogging product with so many bloggers to gurus alike singing the praises of this luminizer. A soft, shimmering champagne shade with gold notes. I dont find it to be the subtlest of highlighters but it's not glittery or heavy either. It has a trade of between being noticeable shimmer and the subtle glow from within. I think it's really pretty, so flattering and the perfect highlighter for the summer months due to its warm tone.  For £16 you get a whopping 8.5g of product, which is almost double what you'd get in an average blush. A little dusting on the tops of the cheeks then blended out gives a really pretty glowy goddess look. I'm sold. Why didn't I cave and get this sooner?

Y’all know me and lip glosses don’t get on. But I got the Too Faced Melted a few days ago and have found myself reaching for over and over for Melted Coral so I thought it was about time to review it.

A hybrid of Liquid Lipstick, staying power of a stain and the shine of a gloss. It’s unique to see such a pigmented liquid that doesn’t lose shine or insensitivity during wear. I found them to be really comfortable to wear. High Impact, creamy and super rich. The brighter shades are SUPER pigmented, I mean insanely bright and in your face. They wear really nicely though and feel lightweight on the lips with no taste or scent. They do have a tendency to goop (technical term here guys) at the corners of the mouth if over applied. Wear time is around 5-6 hours and they do fade to a stain, especially the darker shades.

Downside - they retail for £19 EACH. Yeap Each. Way too overpriced even though they are impeccable quality and very different for a gloss. I do really like the product, it is outstanding and really awesome - I just don’t think that kinda price tag is kinda OTT.. Shame.
