GlossyBox December 2012

I'm so excited for Christmas tomorrow! I can't wait to see the look on my daughter's face when she sees all her presents. Obviously she's older this year so she understands the whole Santa thing more. :) I finished all my wrapping last night so I'll need to visit family members tonight to give them their things. India and I are staying at my Mum and Dad's tonight like we always do. We're gonna get our PJs on and watch Christmas films all night! The only thing is, I still can't get to sleep on Christmas Eve, so it'll be a long night. I'm such a child. I'm going to schedule a post to be published tomorrow, as I won't have time to get on the computer on the 25th. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and get lots of lovely things. ^_^

I forgot to take a picture of the actual box. It's silver and usual the whole packaging is lovely.

Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint + Balm in Grippy Grape

I'm excited to implement my new review rating system. It's pretty simple and easy to follow. It comprises of five stars, one star being the lowest rating and five being the highest. I have updated my blog at the right-hand side with the rating system key for your convenience. I hope you find it useful! Let's get on with the review...

Grippy Grape is a medium-dark berry red with a slight hint of purple. It has good pigmentation and colour pay-off. I didn't experience any un-eveness in colour. The product lasted on me for around 3 hours, using only one application of the balm to begin with. Obviously you can top up the balm throughout the day for normal wear, but for testing purposes I decided to only apply it once. I let the stain dry on my lips for about 5 minutes before applying the balm. It does feel a bit drying before the balm is applied. The feeling is bearable and not too uncomfortable. After applying balm, the texture feels much nicer. However, if you're thinking of buying this product soon, it could have a worse effect on the dryness of your lips because of the Winter weather. You may be best to wear these when it's not so cold. Overall, I found the product okay and would wear it again, however it's probably not something I'll reach for daily.
