Review: Epic Nail Essentials Foil Kit


I've had little experience with nail foils particularly because my first experience was so bad I didn't want to try another. Overall I have to say the concept behind this product is good but the execution not so much. 

Designs
There are a lot of options to choose from. There is the option of getting single patterns or you can get a kit which has 6 designs or there is an ultimate pack with all the designs. So you are bound to find a something you like. 

 Nail Foil Kit - Essentials 

What you get




Application
If you're not good at doing nails in general then you might have difficulties with this product. The first time I tried it only the edges of the nail foil transferred onto my nails. The second time worked a lot better, but there was still a small chunk that didn't transfer onto my nails. There are instructions that come with the pack as well as their website. They were easy to follow but despite this I still had difficulties get the pattern to transfer to my nails. 

Tips for application;
1. Cut the roll into a square big enough to fit your nail so there is minimal wastage

2. Make sure that the glue is CLEAR otherwise it will not stick
3. Hold the foils on your nail for a minute or so to help with the transfer 
4. It doesn't work on bare nails despite claims to work on bare nails
5. APPLY A TOP COAT 

Longevity 
The pattern faded after one day without a top coat. Depending on the quality of the top coat it may last for longer but for me it lasted 2 days max.


I really wanted to like this and I do but getting the pattern to transfer is difficult but when it does work it is BEAU-TI-FUL. I will say that you get a lot in each roll so there is a lot to practise with and for the cost I think it's worth it.

Review: ColorBurst Lipstick in Petal and Peach

Claim: "Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick has a formula that feels weightless on the lips. It includes innovative pigments that delivers high impact colour in one swipe. The elasticolour formulation is designed to distribute rich colour pigments evenly over the lips and allows for a comfortable feel. The formula is also enriched with moisturisers and antioxidants such as sweet almond oil to improve lip texture and prevent drying." (from www.beautyheaven.com.au)



Packaging: Love, Love, Love. It's gorgeous. The quilted pattern, the tops (showing quite an accurate representation of the colour) and the way REVLON is embossed on the lpstick itself, reminds me of high-end packaging. 



Formula: They are smooth and easy to apply. The colour payoff is actually quite sheer, so to get good coverage you need to really build it up and if you have more pigmented lips then your lip colour will definitely show through. Even with my medium pigmented lips, my natural lip colour shows through.

Empties: #3 (Skincare)

As a reference I have combination skin. Non sensitive and not acne prone. 

1. Biore Revitalise 4-in-1 Self Foaming Cleanser This is my second bottle of this cleanser. I love it. For the first few uses it tingles slightly on the skin which I love however the tingling does stop after using the product for a while. It makes my face feel clean without being tight.
Would I repurchase? Definitely 
2. Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser  This did NOTHING for me. I have blackheads all around my nose and this did nothing to diminish them. The product itself doesn't warm up for long, the heat last for around 10 seconds and really doesn't do anything. It has very, very small exfoliating beads (ingredients) but personally I prefer something a bit more rough because this one just did nothing for me.  
Would I repurchase? Definitely no
3. Garnier Clean Sensitive 2 in 1 Gentle Make-up Remover Love, Love, Love. This is really good value for an awesome makeup remover. I only use this for my eye make…
