I recently purchased Revlon Lip butters online because Lipbutters sad to say are not yet available in UAE. I always buy lipsticks in MAC just because I love the shades of their nude lipsticks and other colors as well but Im in love more on their nude lipsticks generally I love nude lipsticks. I first saw this lip butters on one of my favorite Youtube Guru, itsjudytime, here is her link if you wanna check that out   Then I found out that it was a lipbalm so I said hmmm…. that’s interesting. So I went to the mall and look for Revlon and got so disappointed that there’s no lip butters here and check it online by that time it was out of stock in so I waited for like 2 weeks and got lucky last 26th of January that it was back in drugstore and I am really lucky because the next day it was out of stock again :) So I bought 8 colors just to try them out then if I like the formula I will buy some more colors. I bought Strawberry Shortcake,Tutti frutti, Cotton Candy, Cupcake, Lollipop, Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie and Creme Brulee. I received them last Saturday and Im so happy coz it’s fast :)
So Revlon claims that its a Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you a baby soft, healthy glowing lips 94% of women felt lips were softer, smoother and instantly hydrated. 

I say that… It is a buttery lip balm with beautiful shiny color YES, Hydrated Im on the middle maybe I need to use it more then I will let you know if that changes my point of view. The felt of it on my lips was like Amplified from MAC. The color payoff was great for a balm it is very pigmented which I love about it and for like 7.49 USD it wasn’t bad considering the pigment. The packaging, I love the packaging.. I really love it, They are so cool. The smell of it is like a shea butter for me because the formula on these lip butters are Hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula but for me I smell more of the shea butter and it makes me feel like I wanna eat them like a candy. They say that it can boosts lip moisture by 156%, again, I don’t wanna say it does..but I will update this review maybe after 3 weeks and will let you know. One thing I also love about this is it glides smoothly on your lips most of them are sheer to medium colour so if you want more colour on your lips you just have to apply more but for me the dark colors like the shades of red you can build the colors with just 2 layers. They’re available in 20 colors. Once it’s available again online I might get 7 more shades I feel like I wanna try Cherry Tart, Raspberry Pie, Pink Truffle, Creamsicle, Candy Apple, Brown sugar and Peach Parfait.

( Strawberry Shortcake, Tutti frutti, Cotton Candy and Cupcake )

What I can say in this group I like more of the Tutti frutti on the other 3 I feel like I need to wear lipliner coz my natural Lip line is seriously showing up. The Cupcake is a bit brighter than the cotton candy and strawberry shortcake as you can see on the swatches I made for me the perfect nude pink color was the Cotton Candy. Starberry Shortcake was on the middle for me. If you have a very pale lips I think you will like the 3 pink nudes.
( Lollipop, Sweet Tart, Berry smoothie, Creme Brulee )

( Lollipop, Sweet Tart, Berry smoothie, Creme Brulee )
This was the shades a bit darker well except for the Creme Brulee. I can’t say which of which is my favorite because I love them all on my lips. The Lollipop is a bright pink but not that very bright that you can’t wear them at daytime. I think this Lollipop is very wearable and it’s good for any skintone. Perfect bright pink! The Sweet Tart is a lovely pink a pinkish reddish lipstick i like it more on a no make up look and this shade. The Berry smoothie oh my! from all this 8 shades that I got my love is this Berry Smoothie :) Then lets not leave Creme Brulee is the perfect nude lipstick just perfect!

PRODUCT REVIEW: Urban Decay Book of Shadow 4

Since I discovered Urban Decay Paletts, I can’t stop wanting them. It was quite hard to get Urban Decay here in UAE since the only place they’re selling it was in Dubai and most of the time they run out of the stock, which is so sad and devastating. I started my Urban Decay collection with the Naked palette 1 which i love. Then they released this Book of Shadow 4 and I can’t stop wanting them but that time I have to save money because I am going for a vacay in the Philippines so i stopped looking at Urban Decay website. And my fiancee who knows I love them so bad surprised me last week. They went to Dubai last week to buy RC Aircrafts with his friends and they stopped by Dubai Mall where Sephora store happens to be there too. So he arrived with Sephora bag on his other hand and it was the Urban Decay Book of Shadow 4!! He bought me the pallet who does that?! I can’t explain how happy I am.  AFTER MONTHS OF DREAMING ABOUT IT, AT LAST!
So this is my review about it and my first impression.


 Urban decay has been releasing Book of shadows and this is the 4th edition. Let’s talk first about the packaging. I love how it look but I can’t put it on my bag because it will occupy space on my purse because it is quite a bit big for a usual palette, so the only time that I can use them is when I have time putting make up before I leave the house. I love the color and design of it. It was something kind of intriguing and mysterious, like you will ask yourself what the heck was that. It will catch up your attention once you saw it on a stand or where ever. Then when you open it you’ll be glad you did. The most innovative eyeshadow pallets in the world… EVER! They come up with the idea of including a portable speaker and a stand beside the mirror where in you can put your iphone or ipod or any smart phone on it. So while putting your make-up you can play your favorite music or watch something from you tube or clips you like. They include 2 cords you can use to connect on the portable speaker included on the palette. Then they have this card inserted on a small pocket which reveals 5 looks you can do using the palette, of course and all you need to do is scan it using your smartphones and watch it. How cool was that.

 Urban Decay Book of shadow 4 comes with 16 neutral, vibrant and smoldering eye shadows that can be worn by everyone and fell in love with them in a snap, seriously. The texture most of them are shiny, satin and some are glittery which I think i’m not quite a big fan of because of fall outs when applying them. I thinkMIDNIGHT RODEO a metallic medium brown with gold and silver glitter andMIDNIGHT COWGIRL a shimmering gold with gold sparkle, has chunk of glitters on it. What catches myattention most was the BLUE BUS which is a lovely bright blue and 

purple,COBRA a nice black with golden shimmer,BAKED a bright copper color, BENDER which a nice mossy green LOST which isa shimmery dark brown and BUST which is a taupe brown with gray shimmer. They also have colors like GUNMETAL a dark metallic silver with silver sparkle and SIN a shimmering champagne which was also included on the Naked Pallet. The rest of the eyeshadow colors are GRAVITY a deep vibrant color with multi-dimensional glitter, HIJACK grayish green with blue and green shimmer,CRYSTAL a light silvery blue with multi-dimensional shimmer, MISSIONARYlight taupe with pink shimmer, SKIMP a shimmering ultra light nude, ZEPHYR a shimmering off white. I swatched the eyeshadows you can see them on the pictures i took.
They also include a full size 24/7 Waterproof Eyeliner in perversion which is so Black, a travel size Eyeshadow Primer Potion and a travel size Supercurl curling Mascara.  
It wasn’t a bad deal at all. I think it was a pretty great deal for AED 380 you have the 16 cool eyeshadows, the portable speaker, a mascara, eyeshadow primer which is one of their best selling product and a black waterproof eyeliner. And I think they’re available now online in Amazon and Sephora for 44USD.
