Rimmel London The Only 1 Lipstick Review

I love lip products and was intrigued to try out the new Rimmel The Only 1 lipsticks which come in 12 shades.

They are marketed as the only lipstick you ever need!

Rimmel says: A no compromise ALL IN ONE lipstick. Long-lasting colour, comfort, moisture and wear. 

• A no compromise all-in-one lipstick that is challenging the lipstick history.
• The perfect balance of high impact colour, moisture, all day comfort and staying power
• Slanted lipstick bullet for an effortless application


Straight up they are a great lipstick - they apply smoothly, are creamy, moisturising and stay on for at least six hours. To me they are more of a balm when applying, but wear like a lipstick in terms of pigmentation and wear. The finish of these are a satiny finish which feels great on the lips.

The only thing I would suggest is applying a lip liner as they do bleed over my lips. I would also like to see more nude shades, as at the moment there are more reds and pinks...who knows maybe in the future more shades will come.

My favourite lipsticks from this range are Left  - 700 naughty nude, Right - 200 its a keeper

Overall they are beautiful. They are really a great lip product that deliver on smooth application, creamy finish, long wearing and great pigmentation.

Have you tried these? Which colour did you like?

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks Review

My favourite lipsticks are the Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks, I love them!

I have made it my beauty goal to buy all of them eventually. They have over 80 different shades in four finishes - Matte, Pearl, Creme and Shine. Such a great variety of colours.


I love the Creme range the most followed closely by the Shine range. The formula of these lipsticks are moisturising and feel soft on the lips. They have at least four hours wear on me.

They apply smoothly, with great pigmentation and wear beautifully!

My favourite Revlon lipstick is Tea Rose - a beautiful deep red/burgundy

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eyeshadows Review

I love it when I find a really good eyeshadow and this Too Faced chocolate bar palette is definitely beautiful in every way.  And of course it smells like chocolate!!

The eyeshadow colours are great for everyday! There are a few mattes which I love, when I just want to sweep one eyeshadow colour on and put some mascara on and I am good to go.
These eyeshadows are really pigmented and easy to use. They apply smoothly and there is not much fallout which is what I love.

Good quality eyeshadows and the colours are so wearable which last all day. I love them all except for the two dark ones in the top corners of the palette I haven't worn those.

It also has a big mirror which is great for travelling.

I bought this from Beautybay, they deliver to Australia for free. Definitely highly recommended if you are looking for that palette that has everything you need for beautiful eyelooks.

What eyeshadow palette are you loving at the moment?

Five tips on how to be organised in your life

I love being organised. It started from when I was very young and has continued in my adult life too.

I just love being able to know what I need to do for the day and and know that I won't forget to do it because I am organised. Here are five of my top tips to be organised. 



1. Use a calendar - I love my calendar and now that we are so digital I use my iphone calendar all the time. I love that I can set up alerts and repeat appointments. I will usually put in there reminders of things I have to do, appointments and anything I might need to remember for the day.

2. Filing/labelling - I love to file my paperwork in display books and have each of them labelled. For example my bills display book has a insert for each bill gas, electricity, phone, rates and much more. They are easy to find and keep sorted.

3. Clean as you go and declutter - I try to clean and put things away daily. I also like to do small bits of cleaning every day. I don't like to pile things up and I like to declutter as I go. If I haven't used something in a long time or have only used it once or twice I will get rid of it.

4. Online banking - Online banking is a great way to track your finances and set up direct debits or schedule bpay payments. It really is a time saver for paying bills.

5. Put your clock five minutes forward - I have all my clocks in my house and car five minutes faster. This helps me to arrive to my destination on time. I don't even realise that the clocks are five minutes faster but it really does help me not have to rush and know that I will get where I need to on time.

These are just a few tips, hope this has helped you be organised too.

 What are your tips for being organised?

Book review: 'the things we keep' by Sally Hepworth

It's time for a book review! 'the things we keep' is a book by Sally Hepworth -  a fiction book that brings you into the lives of people who have early onset Alzheimers and live in a residential assisted living facility.

Synopsis: 
Anna Forster, in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease at only thirty-eight years old, knows that her family is doing what they believe to be best when they take her to Rosalind House, an assisted living facility. She also knows there's just one other resident her age, Luke. What she does not expect is the love that blossoms between her and Luke even as she resists her new life at Rosalind House. As her disease steals more and more of her memory, Anna fights to hold on to what she knows, including her relationship with Luke. 
When Eve Bennett is suddenly thrust into the role of single mother she finds herself putting her culinary training to use at Rosalind house. When she meets Anna and Luke she is moved by the bond the pair has forged. But when a tragic incident leads Anna's and Luke's families to separate them, Eve finds herself questioning what she is willing to risk to help them.
This is such a beautiful, heartfelt and well written book that I really loved reading. It deals with important topics like memory loss, caring for those with alzheimers, the effect it has on others, compassion, love and identity. 

The book takes us through the main character Anna, a ex paramedic who is living in Rosalind House and how the disease affects her on a day to day basis. The frustration, confusion and cognitive decline of Anna's character is so real. Anna meets Luke another young resident of Rosalind House who is suffering from front temporal dementia which affects his speech. Their relationship evolves and they make a connection however can't be together.

There is Eve the new cook at Rosalind House and Clementine Eve's seven year old daughter who is learning to cope living without her dad. They have a story of their own and together the book takes you through their struggles, hope, love and compassion. The residents of Rosalind House are interesting and add something extra to the story, like Bert who saves a seat for his long dead wife at every meal.

Overall this was a excellent fictional book to read that kept me intrigued and wanting to know what will happen next the whole time. Definitely a great book that I recommend! Check out Sally Hepworth's website here.

 What book do you recommend I read next?
