*Pen-form, which comes with pros and cons. You have to twist heaps upon first use (annoying) and though it generally takes two clicks to perfection, some days a heap splurges out and is wasted=( Other days nothing comes out and I just stand there, click click clicking away.
*Great for travelling as it's lightweight and slim.
*Nice and creamy, it's really natural provided it's blended right out. I generally blend it all, then go over again just to be sure. First few uses saw me rock up to work with crepey eyes, before I started doing this.
*Though it lasted me a while, I feel as though the size of the pen in silly considering that you twist up most of the way before getting any product. As you see in the picture above, most of it is packaging and not product. I would prefer it to be in a mini-pen form.
*Lasts all day, no touch ups required. Revlon says it can be used on blemishes too, but I have only tried that when I've been desperate. It's a good temporary blemish cover. Non-drying, just as promised.
*Priced at $26.95, I feel like this could be a bit cheaper considering it's 'drugstore', but overall am happy to pay that price for a product that actually does what it promises to do.
Overall, I'm happy with this concealer and plan on buying it when others I am trialling are used up. Are you a fan of the Revlon ColorStay ramge?

Warning: If you do not like a wee tipple in the land of the choc and/or deliciousness, back away slowly now.
My little lactose intolerant bestie has only been able to succumb to dairy quite recently, so this trip was a special one.
A 'White Shake' was ordered, which combines the flavours of coconut and lychee, two of her fave flavours. The gorgeous 'drink me' glass is inspired by Alice in Wonderland, a little touch that I love. The flavour was really strong and refreshing, both Candice and I thought it to be super-tasty.
If this picture is not the best advertisement for Max's, I don't know what is!
A staple in my order at Max Brenner is his White Chocolate Chai. For only $6 you get the biggest pot of this heavenly goodness, which equates to roughly 3 cups full. The chai tea is expertly blended with white hot chocolate and is very sweet, and comes in the cutest pot I've ever seen. To pour from it you must sit the pot on top of your mug and push down, as so:So very cute, and makes the experience just that little bit more special. Note the waffle plate to the left had already been demolished-whoops!All in all, Max Brenner is a chocolate heaven fit for a queen that comes highly recommended by moi.
2 Belgian Waffles:$10
White Choc Chai:$6
Tell me, have you visited Max before? emmabovary xx
Overall, I enjoyed and am still enjoying this product, and also find it's super-light weight great for travel (even if it's only to my man's place) Am unsure whether or not I will repurchase this when my bottle is up, but I do think it's one of the best daily exfoliants I have tried so it's a definite possibility.

Here is a swatch,unblended. Here is the swatch after blending.A light swatch on lips, colour can be intensified with repeat/heavier application.
I found this product perfect for me under a pink lippy as it can be a little drying (nature of lip tints) I am dubious about it's effects on the cheek, as you can see from the blended swatch above it stains super-quickly! This was literally on, snapped pic, blended and BAM! Stain was there through 4-5 scrubbings. Retails for an affordable $19, and it available at Priceline, Target among other Bourjois stockists.
Am yet to finish Frankenstein, but am utterly fascinated by the world that Shelley created. To think that by the time she was my age this book was complete amazes me (and makes me feel a bit shit,too) A touching and sad story, it made me feel empathy for Frankenstein's monster and disdain for Frankenstein himself. Am now on a roll with the theme, I watched The Bride of Frankenstein the other night and am planning to rent a few more Frankenstein films. Have you read/seen this? How did you feel about it?
I decided to go with Sportsgirl's Duchess polish because I thought it went nicely with the commercialised view of Frankenstein (being a big green guy with bolts in his neck etc) Application was half decent but now amazing. Wasn't completely rapt in the colour or the brush. Have loved other Sportsgirl polishes before, though, so this review doesn't stand for the whole collection. Retails for $7.95 but I purchased it on sale for $2.95. May be discontinued, but I've seen similar shades by Ulta3 if you're keen to give it a go.
