Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream

Hello Everyone Happy Easter :) 
Todays reveiw is on the Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream 
The Above picture is a Sample I got in my last PowderBox and I have to say I was surprised with the amount of Product I did get in it I got the total of 5 uses out of it which in my eyes is good enough to review the product with but luckily a friend of mine is giving me her sample too as its too light for her skintone.  
Thanks so much Yaz  :) 
This is what the full sized product looks like incase you were wondering :)  You can get them in 25mls or 45 mls
As you can tell I do not review alot of BB Creams because Every BB cream I have tried so far and I have tried alot have not agreed with me.  I either come out looking orange or very oily looking.  I began to give up on BB creams.  
To be honest I am afraid to try new BB Creams out because I dont want to lose out on money any-more.  When this BB Cream appeared in my Box I was unsure about it as you would especially when it said for all skin types.  The promises it had were major and I have to admit been a beauty geek I was curious.  I made sure the day I tried it was the day I would not leave the house (I had an incident before where I applied a bb cream on my face and it looked great at first then it oxidised dramatically making me look orange while I had already ran out of the house and was away shopping nightmare and totally embarrassing)

Since its coming into the summer I want something that will give me some coverage but will be light on my skin too so for the past 5 days I have been wearing nothing but this on my face.  Plus I need the extra SPF on my face as the sun is shining more and I am a true believer of full protection against the sun.  This if works out for me will be perfect for the summer :) as it contains SPF 30 

The formula is very light weight and runny.  First I thought this was going to be very sheer and I like to have something that is at least medium cover as I have dark circles and pigmentation on my face.  Putting that aside I liked that this had a more neutral tone to it which means it will match up with my yellow toned skin.  When I spread this little pea sized amount on my hand I was shocked after I rubbed it in how much this pea sized amount actually covered.  I can safely say 3 peas sized amounted would do the entire face.  
I have to admit this is surely not a shade suitable for all as it says on the packaging.  I can imagine someone who has deep skin tones to me will find this little gem a little on the pale side and anyone who is very pale skinned will find this a shade or 2 too dark.  For me applying this first I though oh oh this is actually too light for me but as time went by I found this BB cream to adjust to my skin tone nicely.  When I tried this first i thought oh no too light and actually put some bronze over it only to notice about a half hour later my face was a little darker than my neck.  So the second time around I left out the bronzer and it actually was perfect for me I am around an NC 20-25 

The best way I applied this BB Cream is dot it all over my face and take my Blank Canvas F80 Flat top Brush and stippled it around my face.  The finish is absolutely beautiful.  I was very surprised with the coverage to be honest I would say its fair to medium coverage.  It did cover the light pigmentation around my face but the medium pigmentation I have on my forehead was only lightly covered.  I do not have any blemishes but I can tell that it will not cover blemishes as I have a beauty spot on my face and it was clear to see when I was finished.  Lastly I have dark lids and dark circles and I definitely felt I had to apply concealer over that as it too was not fully covered.  
I can say one thing you are surely going to have hydration all day long as promised :)  You are left with a fantastic dewy finish that looks fresh and natural.  I am well impressed with this little beauty.  If you are oily I would say that you might want to carry some blotting papers or powder with you as you will get a little oily around the t-zone obviously because it has the natural ingredients in there to hydrate your skin for the day.  
Here is a before and after picture of me wearing the Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream (and of course I have applied concealer under the eyes as I looked so tired that day) 
To be honest I have foundations here I use that has the same coverage as this little beauty which I wouldnt expect from a BB Cream and that is pretty darn amazing.  The fact that this little beauty is doing nothing but great things for your skin yet gives you the satisfaction of walking out the door feeling like you are wearing a foundation is brilliant.  I noticed it didnt soak into my fine lines nor did it make my enlarged pores stand out.  Yes this lasts all day long without having to touch up apart from if you are oily which I do get especially this time of the year around my T-zone.  I am totally amazed I may have found my BB Cream :) :) I am in love with it.  Anyone out there who suffers from acne will love this as it does not cake it does not dry up and it will surely keep your skin feel fresh and moisturised all day long.  
I am loving this bb cream so much I actually would go and pay full price for it :)  I can tell it will last a long time and its good to my skin :)  There is a slight scent to it.  Its hard to pinpoint what the scent is but it does not linger It smells sort of floral.  
Have you tried this BB Cream yet?  Whats your thoughts on it :) If you are thinking about trying it out Here is a link to a website that has all Ginvera Range :) 
Until Next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Coping with a Miscarriage

Hello my beauties 
Today is going to be a tough write up as its hard to talk about things that have hurt us in the past 
I did say I would write up more personal posts as I know the last one I wrote up helped alot of you 
This time its about something I am sure alot of you have been through or know someone who has went through it.  
What I dont really understand is that when us women go through it we dont talk about it and believe me its a subject that needs to be talked about.  When we suffer with a miscarriage, it stays with you for the rest of your life.  You never ever forget it.  
Just because this little human being has not been seen does not mean you cant treat it like a major loss in your life.  It was there it was a baby it was something growing inside of you a miracle and of course its a huge loss when its suddenly taken away from you xxxxx

It doesnt matter how young or how old you are you still have to go through the emotions of this loss 
Today I am going to share with you how I coped and am coping with them losses in my life and maybe then we could all share together and help each other and be there for each other when we have days that all those emotions come back to us.  
Yes you read right I did say losses because I personally had 4 losses 
My first loss was after I had my first baby she was a year old and I will never forget it.  I was 3 month pregnant.  At first this 2nd pregnancy was hard to come to terms with as I already had a 1 year old and at the time was in college and working and trying my best to be the best mum to my daughter I could possibly be.  My life was so so busy and I didnt have time to have another.  Of course the idea of having another baby soon came normal to me and I was just getting used to the idea until Christmas day I started feeling pains.  I didnt pass much remarks to it as I thought it was from been too full that day.  My mum was away from home at the time she was unwell so I was on my own I had no female to turn to.  That night the pains got worse so I went to bed.  The next morning the pains were so bad I sat on the toilet for at least an hour before bang The nightmare and reality hit me.  I knew at that stage what was happening and what had happened.  I was in total shock  I pasted what was growing inside me I stood up and looked My world crumbled around me at that moment.  
I was in such shock I rang the doctor on call and he confirmed it but stated I needed to go in for a check up I refused I believed my baby was gone.  
After that everything was a daze and before I knew it a week passed back to work I felt the most horrible pains I ever had in my life.  I had to go to hospital The pain was so bad I was on my own scared sad emotional and out of it.  The doctor said the miscarriage was not over I had to get a DNC as there was still tissue from the miscarriage left inside me 
Again all of this was a blur.  I just wanted it to be all over.  For 2 months after that I sat at home and was out of it I didnt grieve I didnt do anything I lost 2 stone in weight.  I felt lonely, sad, depressed and blamed myself for this loss.  What did I do wrong, What if why did this happen to me?  I feel so empty!! I feel lost!!! Why was this baby taken away from me?? Was God Punishing me for something?? Is there something wrong with me??? Why?  

I didnt know how to talk about it I didnt have anyone there who would understand.  My mum was away my sister was too young the partner I was with at the time had no clue what to say or do and seemed to have said all the wrong things.  Then Finally I thought of my little girl.  I still had her She still needed me I needed to snap out of this.  I thought of my dads worried face looking at me as I started to disappear in front of him I was hurting him I was hurting my daughter I needed to come back.  I needed to move on even though it was hard and I did some strength just rose from me and I started to see that it wasnt my fault like the doctor said it happens to alot of women in their lives.  I found it hard Extremely hard to get this loss out of my head as I kept my feelings to myself.  I didnt know how to deal with the loss but I knew life had to go on.  

I moved on and started building a life for my baby girl and me and that included moving from the past.  Her dad and I went our seperate ways as there was not a future for us and I moved home to a happier life.  Years later meeting someone new and having the happiest time of my life I had more babies each time thinking of the one I lost and think ok God just knew I wasnt ready to have another until now 
After the twins I fell pregnant again and it was a huge shock I had 5 kiddies already how will i cope with another but those questions soon disappeared after that day and i was soon looking forward to having another little one.  Until a month and half later the pains began.  I knew instantly what was happening.  All those questions came flooding back all the pain of losing came back the pain was nothing I was going through more .... The past was coming back to haunt me again.  I went to the doctor and he confirmed I was loosing and will soon pass it.  It?? your mean my baby right??? Yes i am so sorry !!!!  I walked out angry I wanted to scream I felt that depression coming back that switching off from the world again but I refused to let this happen again No No I am not going there I am going to talk about it this time.  Straight away I ran to my partner and broke down I talked to him I cried and cried and then waited for the time to come.  It was 4 oclock in the morning when it happened the pains got worse and i started to bleed heavily.  My babies were going to be up at 6 and I really wanted this to happen before hand but it didnt.  I didnt want to let my kiddies see me in this pain so I rang their dad He was here within minutes and I was free to let it happen.  I remember at 7 am It finally happened the pain ease but inside the pain became more.  I called my sister and she was there for me I talked through my feelings and cried that day It really helped with my grieving It helped me accept quicker that It just wasnt ment to be.  Talking and letting my feeling out really helped me this time round and I realised letting myself go and not acting the the hard one who can do this on her own really helps.  There is nothing wrong with asking for help and sometimes you need to admit it for your own sake.  

My 3rd and forth pregnancy was the same as above.  Only the 3rd didnt grow past 1 month even though I didnt start loosing until a month and half and the 4th had no heartbeat.   I know you all are thinking why did she get pregnant so many times soon after that.  Well maybe deep down I craved for the 2nd baby and then the 3rd  I wanted and got used to the idea of having and I was also still grieving.  The want of another baby maybe to replace the ones I lost was greater than I thought but I soon realised that Its not ment to be.  I did rush into getting pregnant again and that does happen we do not think straight while grieving.   I think deep down inside I was still blaming myself for losing 3 babies in a row.  I still thought I was doing something wrong but I was even more careful with the last pregnancy and still I lost again and then it hit me !!!! I wasnt me I was doing nothing wrong It really was not ment to be. 

 I have 5 beautiful healthy children and the losses were literally nothing I could control.  It happened and unfortunately we in some way have to accept that.  I have also accepted that my 5 children is all I need to fullfil the losses I had and I have also accepted that I shall be having no more in the future.  I dont need anymore as I am blessed to have the children I do have in my life.  I think about the women out there who are suffering trying to have one baby and cant and my heart goes out to them in a way I know what they are going through because when you do suffer a miscarriage you body has goes through the hormones of a pregnancy and it builds itself up for a baby to live in your whom and birth, when you lose the baby your hormones are still there and you body feels completely empty, you crave for the baby your started to grow inside you.  That craving stays there a long time.  

Life is all about learning everyday is a school day as someone once said to me and its true.  We sometimes blame ourselves for something that happens every single day but when you are in that mood you find it hard to snap out of it.  The one thing I have to say helped me cope with all of these losses was one thing Talking, admitting you need the help to accept whats happened to deal with your grief.   you have to share your feelings, your have to ask them questions out loud!!!! you have to cry it out !!!

You have to Grieve !!!!!! I mean grieve for your baby that was once there but not anymore.  That is the only way you will get through this.  You can not get through it on your own.  I had two people in my life The father of the babies and my sister who knew about my last 3 losses and thats it and it helped me accept it quicker I did not want people coming to me asking me was I alright or giving me sympathy I wanted to get through this with the people I loved and thats it. 
I have another piece of advice to you ladies out there. 

 Please do not shut out your partner as he too is going through the pain He may not be feeling the pain for loosing it physically but he is mentally.  He sees you in pain he feels the loss he wants to help but doesnt know how.  Tell him how.  Tell him to leave you be when you want to be on your ouw dont push him away.  Tell him you need a hug when you are low.  Tell him your feelings Tell him your angry Tell him everything and he too will share.  Do not shut him out as it will create even more problems for you 

I personally dont know if I would have got through it without those the people who knew at the time and of course with the love of my babies.  I also found you guys helped me get through it without you even knowing.  Believe me you did help you were continuously giving me positive feedback for my posts mailing me with such lovely words and been supportive of my blog.  You helped and Thank you.  I just want to highlight that you never ever know that just by giving people kind words or simply asking them how they are or just telling them your thinking of them or simply smiling at them helps them get through some very harsh times :)  Dont forget it as you could be doing more than you think YOU DID WITH ME 

  Remember that Its NOT YOUR FAULT,  YOU NEED TO TALK,  YOUR NEED THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU TO BE THERE FOR YOU,  THERE IS HELP FOR YOU TO DEAL WITH THIS,  ITS NOT YOUR FAULT,  YOU COULDNT HAVE PREVENTED IT FROM HAPPENING You will never complete get over a miscarriage but you will find a way to accept that it was ment to be and that it wasnt anything you could do.  

I am not writing this for sympathy I am writing this simply because I want to share my experiences and how I coped and am coping.  I want to see women talk more about their experiences after all it is a major experience in our lives and just because its not visible to others it doesnt mean it didnt happen.  
Talking and getting the support you need is the key to coping with this loss in your life.  
For those of you who are going through losses and have not yet been blessed with a baby in your arms dont be disheartened I know you are still in pain of the fact that you have not yet got the child you desire but in time you too will accept thing for what they are and what they will be just remember you are not alone and there are many people out there who are going through the same pain you are.  

I am not even sure if I am going to post this up or not as it is a very personal experience but I also know alot of you will appreciate it.  Alot of people might see this as something that means nothing to them but at least you will know a little about what people are going through.  
I hope this helps in some way i might not but at least you know that I am here for anyone who wants to talk or has questions they need answering,  I am not a doctor but I have went through it.  
If you do need to talk to someone profession I have websites you can look up:  
The Miscarriage Association 
For any of you out there who want to help your loved ones who are going through this and dont know what to do.  Everyone is different when dealing with grief.  Some want to talk others dont Just let them know you are there for them when they need you.  Do supportive things for them and be there but dont pressure them to talk until they are ready as they will feel smoothered they will in time come to you if you leave them be.  You may think that they will not come to you but ask them even months after how they are feeling because it might not hit them until months later.  Their due date especially will be hard for them but with them knowing that your are thinking of them at that time even helps them.  If you friend sister whoever is experiencing this has children have a little word with them telling them mummy is feeling sad and needs lots of hugs and kisses this will comfort her alot more than you think.  Simply ask her and him what you can do to help.  They may reply nothing at the time but at least they have some comfort knowing you are there 
No matter how bad life is for you remember one thing there is always people out there who are going through the same if not more than you and this is just another hole in your life that you will fill.  If you are one who hasnt got people close to you to talk to please use the people available in organisations to talk to them its completely confidential and very professional just do not go through this on your own.  
 I love you all 
God bless 
Stay positive 
Lots of Love Luck and Laugher 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

My NYX Single Eyeshadow Collection

Hello My beauties :) 
I hope you are all well 
Todays review is on my NYX Single Eyeshadow Collection 
I have slowly built this little collection everytime I bought something from Cherry Culture I bought one eyeshadow so I thought it was about time I shared my collection so far :)  I mean so far I plan of buying alot more so be sure there will be part 2 or even part 2 and 3 on this post ;) 
There is a whopping 132 shades of eye-shadows to choose from and believe me it was even difficult for me to choose these ones so far so make yourself a cuppa when you do plan on buying some because it will take a while :) :)  
You can get these in numerous of sites which I will list at the end of this review for you 
Each eye shadow costs around $5 which is only €3.61 each 
There is 6 different finishes of eyeshadows in these 
You can get 
I am going to show you the colours I have so far and tell you more about each one :) 

Of course I had to get this as A black eyeshadow is always useful.  This black is 100% matte.  Its important to find a good black eyeshadow and I surely have found it in this one.  Its also been said to be the exact dupe of Mac's Carbon.   This is a true black and so so pigmented.  I like to use this for daytime eyeliner.  For darkening up a day look.  For setting liquid eyeliners.  Its Fabulous and should be added to your list for sure 

This eyeshadow feels super creamy, super soft and highly pigment and not chalkiness whatsoever its a dream to blend out its a dream full stop :) :) 

This shade is always handy for days you just want to look more awake.  Its a stunning semi matte champagne.  This I like to apply all over the lid with a little bit of liner and mascara and im out the door I instantly look more awake.  I also use this as a highlight for under the brow or in the inner corner I have also used this to blend out harsh lines :)  Again another multipurpose shadow that should be in your kit :) :) 

I found a little goes a long way with this.  Again like Black this is smooth soft and creamy and you experience no fall out.  :) 

Oh boy if you have hazel or green eyes especially this shade is going to make them pop.  I am in love with it :)  This eyeshadow has been said to be the exact dupe of Mac's Cranberry.  Thats literally what this shade is a frosty/shimmery Cranberry shade 

Oh boy this shade is amazingly pigmented and a little goes a long way.  It too is very soft creamy and is not one bit chalky 

Exotic Green 
Well I am sure you can tell that this is a shimmer eyeshadow and every so gorgeous.  It is an almost black shade with green shimmers.  I actually seen Vintage or Tacky using this in one of her tutorials and I just had to have it I am so glad I picked it too 

Doesnt it look stunning :) This is smooth and creamy and I did experience a bit of fall out with this shadow but nothing a wipe couldnt clean up :) 

Hawaiian Coffee
This is another everyone should have as its perfect for daytime smokey looks.  Its a medium brown and has a satin finish.  This is great to use in the outer corner to darken up a bronze look its also great to use as a liner if you do not want a black liner look during the day 
It is a little sheer to begin with but once you build it you have that desired medium brown payoff as it looks in the pan 

This too is very soft creamy and has no fall out 

Burgundy Pearl 
This looks a little like Rust when you put the two of them together in the pans.  But believe me they are different.  This is another one for the hazel and green eyed girls out there wow does this little beauty make your eyes pop :) :) 
This is true to its name with a slight hint of purple and red in there 

Wow this is pigmented :) soft creamy and easy to blend There is a little fall out with this but nothing crazy :) 

This is stunning and a perfect shade to add to your neutral colours.  Its a perfect bronzey brown it has a slight metallic finish.  I love to wear this on the the lids with Hawaiian Coffee they colours really compliment each other plust with my hazel eyes I have found Cork makes them pop.  Love this shade and highly recommend it :) 

Even though it looks golden in the pan it comes out darker when swatched.  This is smooth creamy and very pigmented :) 

These swatches were made with no primer underneath.  I have to rate these shadows 10/10 for quality.  They are absolutely amazingly pigmented .  They are easy to work with and there is so much product for the price you are paying.  I have used Mac eyeshadows as I own a few and they are definately up there with the pigmentation and lasting power.  In fact I would rather the NYX shadows over Mac simply because the only difference between them is the price.  They are also up there with Inglot shadows too.  If you were a makeup artist and you were given mace eyeshadows in one palette and NYX eyeshadows in another you would find it hard to pick any difference and thats for sure :) :) 
For the price and the quality I will surely be buying for of these shadows and I am to get alot of them When I do I will depot them all and place them in palettes :) :) 
Absolutely amazing :) 
Have you tried these eyeshadows yet ???
If you havent tried them you should at least try one and I can be sure you will want more :)
As promised here is some links to where you can buy these eyeshadows and who ship internationally  
You can Purchase these from Cherry Culture :) 
You can also purchase these from Joy017 Ebay seller who is very trusting as I have bought from her lots 
You can also order from Non Pareil website but be warned if you order too much shipping can be high.  You can also purchase them from Nyx but again shipping is high 
In this picture I created a simple everday smokey look using
Cork on the lid, Hawaiian Coffee in the crease, black on the outer V and Nude in the inner corners and under the brow
I hope you enjoyed my review and I am sure I will be back with more eyeshadows to show you in the near future :) 
Until Next Time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Seventeen Cheek Stamp Blush Review

Hello My beauties I hope you are all well today 
Ok as you have probably noticed I have never ever tried the brand Seventeen before.  I think mainly because I thought the brand was directed mostly to teens out there.   I was wrong in fact Seventeen makeup has been out since 1962 imagine :) 
I was browsing through boots one day and I spotted these little guys which were a new release by Seventeen I was intrigued and thought they looked so cute :)  I researched a little about them and found out they were out before as part of Seventeens Spring Limited Edition Collection last year  They were seemingly bought back due to popular demand.  
There are 5 shades available in total and cost €6.29 from Boots and there is currently an offer of 3 for 2 so if you are interested in trying them out after this review you will get a good bargain ;) 

Ok I have to say at first the packaging was what caught my eye with these and usually packaging is not a big deal to me but in all fairness you have to admit yourself it looks pretty, girly and very unusual :) :) 

I love the inside packaging too.  You are getting an hour glass shaped blush.  Each blush is colour coded so you will have no problem picking which one you want.  There is a mirror on top of each one, always perfect for travelling or checking out your makeup in a hurry ;) 
The blush has a twistable lid which inside contains an attached sponge :) 

 The Sponge is protected by a round see through plastic seal in which you replace on the sponge each time you use the blush for hygienic reasons of course as the oils from your face would transfer to the blush once you place the sponge on top.  
On the other half is where the blush is :)  To be honest it looks quite little when you do have a look in.  

The sponge is worked by a spring which means the more the product goes down the further the spring with go to reach it so there is no worries there.  You will feel the spring work immediately from the time you put the sponge in or close the product up.  The blush lifts quite well so it takes little effort to load up the sponge what I do is dip and turn a little and the sponge is full of blush 

The instructions say stamp blusher onto the apples of your cheeks and blend for a flush of Spring colour.  
The 2 shades I got where the only shades available the day I got them as they sold out very quick in my area so I thought I would give them a whirl anyway :) 

The cheek of it :  This has shimmer in it so if you are not a glittery/shimmer blush fan you might not like this one.  This is a nice peachy bronzey shade.  I have to admit its a little too much on the shimmery side for me.  I like shimmer blushes especially those that give you a nice glow but this is not for me as the colour is a little sheer on my and the more I build it the more shimmer goes onto my cheeks.  I think the only ones who will get colour pay off from this would be people who have fair skin :)   Its still very pretty and very easy to apply 

Made you Look:  I love this name because wearing this blush will surely make people look.  This is a bright fuchsia Pink blush with tiny specks of shimmer in fact the tiny specks are not even noticeable once swatched but you do end up with a nice glow to the cheeks.  A tiny bit of this goes a long way so be very careful :)

In all honesty the stamp sponge is great for applying the blush to the apples of the cheeks but blending out with the sponge is a little hard to work with I would much prefer the brush to blend out.  Also waiting for your foundation to dry first before stamping this blush on would be a need otherwise you are going to find it even harder to blend that stamp out.  I like the idea around it but I am too used to applying blush with my brushes and that's what I ended up doing with this blush after a few goes its easier and quicker :)  The blushes themselves are very smooth and soft and quite pigmented they last for most of the day without any touch ups :)  
The shades is something I probably would have thought twice about getting for myself in all honesty as they are not shade I wouldnt usually reach for but for some of you out there you might like these shades :) :)  I will go back and see if the store has stocked up on the other to try them out 
Have you tried these yet?
Whats your thoughts on them 
Until Next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Shiseido Perfect Rouge RD 516 Lipstick

Hello my beauties :) 
I hope you are all well
Today I decided to review this fabulous lipstick by Shiseido as I feel it deserves a full review :) 
Just to refresh your memories I got this in the PowderPocket Box Last Month and instantly fell in love with it :) 
I actually posted up a picture the day I got it on facebook with me wearing it and alot of you had great comments about it on my lips :) :) 
In all honestly this is the first time I have tried the brand Shiseido and I was super excited to see that it came in the box as I have always wondered about the brand :) :) 
The price tag of this beauty is fairly high I tell you so high its no wonder I have taken my time trying it out.  €27 reaches a no no point for me especially for lipsticks but I thought ok forget the price and just try it out to see if its worth all this ching ching :) 
Shiseido date back to 1872 Wow I cant believe that but its true :)  It creator was Japanese and the first product introduced by Shiseido was a toothpaste from then on was a face powder then skin lotion then Perfume.  It became on of the biggest brands in the whole of Japan by 1957 it became known all over the world.  Now today Shiseido offers products for both men and women including makeup, perfume, skincare products etc 
Its no wonder its one of the top High end brands of all time :) :) 

Their Perfect Rouge range is huge with 20 shades to choose from you are bound to find one that suits you :) :) 
Shiseido states:
"The Perfect Rouge is about colors that elevate the beauty in life.  Colours that bring true glamour and elegance within our reach.  Delivering this colour experience in such luxurious textures - with such nurturing care for the lips it is a feat of technology and it make the colour feel all the more special" . 
 Shiseido has alot of promises for this lipstick stating This lipstick Soothes and hydrates the lips without stickiness.  Offering moisture that lasts all day long improving dryness and roughness over time.  Perfect Rouge Lipstick embraces the use of Dual Optimizing Powder, Ultra-Fine Satin Smooth Pearl, and Super Hydro-Wrap Vitalizing DE, It combines powerful skincare with cutting-edge color technologies to create the ultimate lipstick.   So now that all that has been talked about let me show and tell you what I think of this lipstick :) 

The packaging I have to admit is nothing to be excited about to be honest there are drugstore lipsticks out there that are more excited and looks more expensive than this.  You do know what they say though its not all about the packaging its the product itself :) :) 

Its a simple Dark purple tube shaped like a flower with four hollows going around it.  The name of the brand printed on it plain and simple :) :) Its very lightweight and easy to store in your purse pocket handbag where every you desire :)   The one thing I have to say is that the lid closes like it has a slight suction at the end which means the lid will not come off easily in your handbag 

When i opened this lipstick to see what shade I got I was surprised RED!!!!! and very deep in the tube like a blood red  :)  Some people would be slightly fearful of this especially if you are afraid of reds :) but believe me there is no need to be afraid of this one its fabulous.  I swatched a little on my hand and was actually surprised.  It was not a deep dark blood red like I thought only to be a pinky blue toned red.  I cant help but love blue toned reds as I feel they suit my skin tone alot better.  I was so pleased 

On this lips this feels extra smooth and soft almost like butter.  Applying is like a dream even with this deep colour.  The lipstick feels more like a balm than a lipstick.  Not the balm that feels oily and greasy but the balm that feels like silk on the lips.  I It certainly feels like a luxurious lipstick on the lips.  I have especially tested this lipstick this week as I have been suffering with a horrible flu which involved me having to wear barely there makeup because I was constantly blowing my nose leaving me with dry skin around the nose and dry lips.  Applying this lipstick to my dry lips was amazing unlike some lipstick that soak into the cracks of your dry lips and becoming blotchy this lipstick glided on easily leaving my lips looking super moist and kissable :) 

It doesn't stop there ....... This lipstick does not lose its moister at all for the day even when it wears off your lips still feel as moist as when you first applied the lipstick.  The pigmentation of this lipstick is incredible you can get away with just one coat and you instantly have colour on your lips.  In the picture above I have 2 coats.  When the lipstick starts to wear off it wears off evenly which means no blotchiness or no checking your lips every time you drink or eat.  I found it stains the lips and the more it wears off the more pink it looks on the lips :)   This lipstick is very transferable so be careful with your other half while wearing this because you will literally leave him with lipstick on his collar but while the lipstick wears off you are still left with colour on your lips for the day.  
I have certainly had fun trying this little beauty out and will surely be keeping this for all the right occasions.  The shade is not for me for everyday wear as it is very opaque but i do sometime blot this over my lips for a little colour especially on my "No makeup Days" 
So in all this lipstick really does what it says on the packaging it delivers everything it says and boy will you feel good wearing it.  Now paying €27 I still don't think I would opt to that as money I feel been a mum of 5 that is alot of money to splurge on one lipstick but for some of you out there who like to splurge now and again on make-up you have to try this lipstick :) :) Its amazing :)
