I love bold, colourful lips. The perfect lipcolour can make a huge difference to your look but also how you feel! When I wear a bright lip look my mood is lifted by it.
I have 3 shades from Revlon’s Ultra HD matte lipcolour: ‘Obsession’ which is a bright fuschia pink. ‘Devotion’ which is a light pink shade. ‘Romance’ which is a bright red shade.
I did have misgivings about the velvet matte finish but I have to say all three shades look fantastic. When you apply they are creamy but they dry to a velvet matte finish. They are long-lasting, non-drying and the colour doesn’t fade. I didn’t have top-up during the day as the colour didn’t fade. I only did give more ooomph to my lips! They are also wax free.
The velvety applicator works a treat as its so easy to apply with it. The pigmentation is excellent and the faint sweet scent is not unpleasant either to me.
Revlon do more shades in this range and I have been impressed by them and I think they are great value at under a tenner each.
I bought D&G L’Imperatice 3 last summer as it was a wonderful price in a Boots sale! I often went to Debenhams to sniff it so I often had eyes on it for a long time. My Latvian friend Daina loves this perfume too and she has this on her perfume shelf as well.
D&G introduced this perfume and the collection in 2009 which is the year I came to the UK. Let’s start with the bottle design. It reminds me of my grandfather’s cologne bottles with the rigid black cap. My grandfather liked cologne and I can still see him putting it on himself and he always smelt nice and he was always clean shaven and groomed.
The scent itself starts with a burst of peaches, watermelon and pears. Freshness is there too with a touch of citrus. The dry down is when the jasmine comes into play with musk and sandalwood starting to dominate later on.It has a nice warmth as well. The fragrance is not sickly in my view, perfect for all times of the year but summer is the best to wear it I think. For a EDT, the longevity is excellent.
I will have to buy a long white floaty dress to wear this with a cocktail in my hands sunbathing on a white sandy beach!
