FOTD with Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Raspberry

I spent a good deal of time last night ogling lipsticks online. My eyeshadows and nail varnish no-buy mean that I've been turning my attention elsewhere, naturally. So, to try and rein myself in, I thought it was time to do some more stash shopping. I ended up using a mix of old and new items: I have included a link where I have previously reviewed an item and any PR samples are marked with an asterisk.


Guerlain Rue de Rivoli palette: pans labelled 1 & 2 are the colours I used in this look


I've used the Lancôme Teint Miracle a few times in recent weeks. I still really like the texture and finish of this foundation, I also really like the smell which I realise probably sounds a little odd! Using it again reminded me that the colour isn't quite right for me. It's a little too dark and too pink and I think it shows up in the picture below. I think the other colours that I've used pull out the 'pinkness' too. None of this has quelled my interest in the new Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation of course, though I should probably force myself to finish at least one bottle of foundation before I start buying any more.

Tiny bit of RBR Sea of Tranquility as cheek highlight

Guerlain Rue de Rivoli: the iridescent champagne (#1) shade all over the mobile lid and the cement (#2) colour in crease
Stageline Professional Precise Liner in Black*
Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara*

The brushes I used, and that are pictured above, are the Hakuhodo Kokutan Eyeshadow ML and Sigma E35 crease brush.

Miss MB decided that she wanted to copy Mummy today and this is the blue hippo's look of the day. Don't worry, no makeup was harmed!

  1. Ooh. I am in love with that palest shade in the Guerlain palette... consider my interest piqued! I too have the same problem with my Teint Miracle foundation. love the finish and texture and I think it looks fab when I apply it, but I also think it perhaps changes on my skin because I often find I look the wrong shade when I look later in the day. x

    1. Charlie, the pale shade in Rue de Rivoli is my favourite. It's really pretty. It's very interesting that you say that the Teint Miracle changes on you as I've come to the same conclusion. It must oxidise after it's applied as to start with it looks fine. Have you tried the Idole Ultra? x

    2. No I haven't, not yet anyway! It's on my list...but lets face it, what isn't on my list! Hmm, its a shame because Teint Miracle has everything going for it apart from that. x

  2. I loved that foundation, but it broke me out sadly. Great look and I love the hippo's interpretation as well :)

    1. Oh no, that's so annoying when that happens. Did you use shade 1 or 2 Martha? Glad you like the hippo :D

  3. Great colour lip on you (although I'm going out on a limb and saying Blue Hippo is slightly more sassy about it).

    K x

    1. Yes, I think Blue Hippo is slightly more edgy with it. Maybe I should let Miss MB have a go applying it on me next time.......or maybe not! x

  4. Gorgeous look on you and your lipstick of choice has underlined a comment I made on Ruth's blog this morning about my being drawn to nude lipstick even though it doesnt suit me and needing to find something with some colour but not so much that it wears me!! This is a great colour on you, it looks fresh and bright without over powering and whilst blue hippo might be all out there and edgy I think you wear it best! x

  5. I love the delicate colours against your pale skin! Mr. Blue Hippo looks like Lady Hippo mow, lol!

  6. Oh I love the entire look! such a good neutral look with a pop of color on lips ;D
    you are so pretty <3

  7. Hahaha. I'm on an overall no-buy so I can't shift my shopping elsewhere. I don't see a problem with the foundation but i'm a fail at that. Mr. Blue Hippo is rocking that lippie!

  8. You have put together the colours so well, you look very pretty.
    I like that blue hippo is sporting a nice red lip as well, bet that was fun cleaning off! ;) xx

  9. The lipstick is truly gorgeous. Really suits your skin tone

  10. Holy beautiful lip colour, Batman! I am going to give that a whirl, I think. It's much less blue-toned than I would expect from a shade named 'Raspberry'. Blue Hippo is definitely edgy with the lippie but his outfit doesn't do his lips justice! Hope it comes out- my eldest once COATED her fave monkey's bum with Sudocrem and let me tell you that took some work cleaning off :-)

  11. That lipstick is a perfect color for you! And the foundation looks really nice - great texture. I had a really hard time getting the right match as well, so maybe it's something in the undertones?

    The Teint Idole looks intriguing, though it doesn't look to be available in Canada yet. :(

  12. Lovely look - these colors all look great on you! And blue hippo looks fabulous as well ;-)

  13. This lipstick looks really lovely on you and your daughter is so cute :)

  14. Beautiful! Gorgeous on you!!

  15. Ahhh, so cute with the hippo kiss!

    What a beautiful look on you. I love that Guerlain palette, and it took me a minute to realize the Raspberry color you wore is not the same as the new Colorburst Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie which is darned near straight-up fuchsia. The regular Raspberry is a perfect color on you.


  16. I have a baby boy the same age as Miss MB and so far I have rarely worn makeup after he was born. I can imagine him doing the same to his favorite soft toys like Mr Blue Hippo once he sees more makeup stuff accessible on mom's dressing table.
