Revlon Shanghai Collection - Cherry Blossom Lipstick & 300 Followers

I just wanted to say a BIG thank you to all of you lovely people, because somehow I managed to reach 300 GFC followers, and 10,000 page views. I'm naturally pretty astounded and thrilled by this. I remember when I first started my blog and was literally writing to myself. It's lovely to have kind comments and feedback from such a supportive, fun and lovely community. You're all babes, thank you.



I was lucky enough to recently win three items from the Revlon Shanghai collection from their twitter page. I love how easy it is to enter competitions on twitter, just a simple retweet and all done. I won a Colourstay Creme Gel Eye Liner in Black, a Top Speed Fast Dry Nail Enamel in Forbidden, and finally this Super Lustrous Lipstick in Cherry Blossom.  I have to admit, beforehand, I'd never tried any Revlon products. But, I've always viewed them as a luxurious and affordable brand so I was very excited to finally try them out.

Cherry Blossom is a beautiful cherry shade of red, as implied in the name. I've always been a fan of red lipstick, and I was expecting this to be the normal run-of-the-mill red, but to find it isn't was a nice surprise indeed. On first application, I made a bit of a mess. I think this lipstick definitely needs a lip liner, it bleeds pretty easily, and I somehow ended up getting it all over my teeth - hardly a sexy look.

I'm pretty impressed by the lasting power of this lipstick, although like many other bright lipsticks the colour does transfer easily which can be rather irritating. The product glided on smoothly, and it was very easy to build up the colour. It also felt rather lovely and moisturising on, and didn't feel like it was drying out my lips, which is always a bonus. You can get your hands on this beauty in Boots and Superdrug (3 for 2 on at the moment) for £7.49. I can see it suiting many skin tones so if you like the look of it, then definitely don't hesitate to check it out and have a cheeky swatch.

  7. This one looks great and really suits you! I just purchased Revlon's Wine Not, and although it's probably the darkest lipstick I'd wear I'm really enjoying it!

    I always get confused when I get the email saying "Charlotte has commented on your post" because I'm like "I have??"

    I'm definitely going to have to give this lipstick a try!

    1. Hahaha we really do! This is quite weird actually, same name and everything as well.

      Yeah to be honest, I only noticed you'd commented on this when I looked at the post, because I thought it was an email saying that I'd left a comment replying to someone!

      You really should, it should suit you seeing as we look so alike haha! No problem my lovely, oh wow thank you! xo
