Face of the Day with Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 210 Unapologetic

I have been sitting here debating whether to put a 'u' in Colorburst, it just doesn't look right but as Revlon went to the trouble of trade marking it, Colorburst it is!

As much as I love a matte lip, I wasn't overly excited about these new Revlon balms. Sometimes I get caught up in the beauty hype, other times I get a bit tired of it all but when I was in Boots I swatched this colour on my hand and it was so beautiful I caved!

I chose the shade "Unapologetic"which is a bright pinky red colour, out of all the shades this is the only one that really stood out to me. I just love the colour and its cool to see bright, matte shades like this available on the highstreet.

The balms are matte but don't feel overly drying and have a pleasant minty scent. I would wholeheartedly recommend trying this shade.

Face

Foundation
NARS Sheer Glow in Fiji
I have been loving this foundation, full review here

Concealer
MAC Prep & Prime Highlighter in Light Boost
Perfect for brightening under the eyes and the centre of your face.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
Whilst i love my MAC Highlighter, its no good for blemishes. Lasting Perfection is one of the best concealers for redness and spot cover ups!

Bronzer
Givenchy Terracotta Moisturising Bronzer in 00 Makeup Artist
Adds just the right amount of warmth to my face without being orange.

Powder
Ben Nye Luxury Loose Powder in Banana
I will have a full review of this powder on the blog this week so will save my thoughts for then!

Highlighter
Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in Candelight
Simply the best natural looking highlight, I would seriously struggle to use any other highlighter now.

Eyes

Eyeshadow
Bobbi Brown Eyeshadows in Bone and Camel
I have got a lot of use out of my Bobbi Brown palette this month. For this look I used the lightest colour, Bone all over my lid and then used the darkest colour, Camel through my crease. 

Eyeliner
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Intense Black
This eyeliner is amazing for creating a really subtle flick, which is a look I have been loving lately, plus it doesn't budge!

Mascara
MAC Extended Play Lash Mascara
I didn't want loads of volume from my mascara for this look, as its all about the lips so I went for MAC's Extended Play, as its a great lengthening mascara.

Eyebrows
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette
My favourite product for filling in my brows

Illamasqua Brow and Lash Gel
Another favourite. I love this gel as when you brush your brows up and use this it actually keeps them in place, all day.

Lips

Lip colour
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 210 Unapologetic

So, I really did not need another lip product but I'm glad I got this #sorrynotsorry (get it?!)
