Rimmel Provocalips – 16 Hour Lip Colour

Those of you who also follow me on Instagram @AllThingsAdoredOfficial know that I have been using the Rimmel London Provocalips quite religiously as of late. 

These are definitely one of my current favorites. 

The application is smooth, the colors are fantastic, and as advertised it lasts foreverrrrr!

Provocalips comes in 14 gorgeous shades and is available at Target, Walmart, and Ulta.

The Ulta website describes the product as follows: 

Rimmel’s Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour is an exclusive 2 step product that locks in vibrant color for 16 hours. It’s so incredibly lightweight and flexible that it adapts to the movement of your lips. These seductively rich shades bring out that femme fatale in you! Wow color, incredible shine and zero trace!

I can totally agree with the lightweight and flexiblity claims, and the color lasts and lasts through eating, drinking, kissing, etc. Nachos, it even lasted through eating nachos!! 

At no point while wearing this product did my lips feel dried out (like some long lasting lip colors can do), or get clumpy. The color remained smooth and my lips remained moisturized.

The cost is approximately $6-7 depending on where you shop, and is a super great price for the quality of product you are getting.

Thanks for reading! πŸ™‚ If you have a long-wearing lip color you think is also amazing, let me know in the comments below!

    DIY False Eyelash Cleaning

    The bane of my existence… cleaning my eyelashes! But I have discovered a new method that makes this whole process less tedious.

    What you’ll need:

    • Your used false lashes 
    • Rubbing alcohol (I use 70%)
    • A small dish or bowl 
    • Original eyelash tray that your lashes came in

    The process:

    • First place your lashes into a small bowl/dish.
    • Next, pour rubbing alcohol into the bowl/dish until your lashes are completely submerged.
    • Leave them soaking for a few moments.
    • Next, gently remove mascara and glue with your fingers.
    • Once clean, place the eyelashes back in their original tray to maintain their shape.
    • That’s it!

    Happy cleaning!! πŸ™‚

      Halloween Make-up Ideas

      Halloween is just around the corner and it is crunch time to finalize your costume options. Here are a few possibilities that you may choose to replicate for your Halloween haunting festivities.

      Probably one of the most popular Halloween costume options this year will undoubtedly be Harley Quinn from DC Comics due to the movie Suicide Squad and the lovely Margot Robbie who was cast in the role.

      Dia de los Muertos / Sugar Skull Make-up will probably be another popular choice again this year.

      Clowns are on the rise this year, but rather than the scary, creepy type clown, I opted for the cuter harlequin version.

      Pictured above are my adaptations of the characters costume make-up, and listed below is a list of the products I used and links to where you can purchase them, for each of these looks.

      Harley Quinn:

      Dia de los Muertos:

      • Morphe Gel Liner – Shade Slate
      • Melt Cosmetics – Shade Dark Matter
      • Maybelline Great Lash – Blackest Black
      • Ardell Eyelash Glue Adhesive
      • Rhinestones – Michaels Craft Store
      • Headband – Forever 21

      Thanks for reading!! Happy Halloween!

      Body Blendz Scrubs

      All the way from Australia, comes one of my favorite body scrubs.

      I must admit that I am only an occasional scrubber, so I may not see all the benefits that these scrubs boast. I can however, attest to the quality of the product in comparison to other scrubs I’ve used. It smells great, is easy to use, and makes my skin feel amazingly soft afterwards.

      All scrub options are a coffee variation and come in a 200 gram packet for $19.95. It is an ample amount with plenty of product for several scrub sessions.

      Scrub Options: 

      • Coffee Scrub
      • Coconut Delight
      • Oats Oats Baby
      • Sugar Daddy

      Their website describes the benefits of each scrub variation as below:

      Our Sugar Daddy Scrub is highly moisturising and highly recommended for use on sensitive skin. It’s perfect for helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It aids in treating ingrown hairs, eczema & Keratosis Polaris (the little red spots on the back of your arms and legs), all whilst keeping your skin supple, firm and youthful. 

      Our Coffee Scrub is packed with active ingredients like Caffeine & Sea Salt, which are perfect for targeting cellulite & stretch marks. It is suitable to treat acne, reduce redness and improve skin tone & texture. 

      Our Coconut scrub is highly hydrating and great for skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. The essential oils remove dead skin cells, clear away dirt, grime and remove make-up. It can also aid in shrinking wrinkles, preventing cellular ageing and protect against sun damage. 

      Our Oats Scrub is perfect for relieving itchiness, rashes & dry flaky skin. It also increases the natural production of collagen, which aids in smoothing out stretch marks. The oats scrubs also target cellulite, stretch marks, acne, eczema & psoriasis.

        Scrub frequency recommendations from the Body Blendz website:

        We recommend 2 to 3 scrubs a week is perfect to get that glowing, radiant skin you desire and to target stretch marks and cellulite. Make sure to leave the scrub on for 5 to 10 minutes each session for best results.

        Body Blendz also has new body wraps and a new mandarin body scrub, which both look amazing and I can’t wait to try.

        Farsali Rose Gold Elixir

        Magic in a bottle…. no, seriously! Once you’ve tried this product, and have incorporated it into your beauty routine, you will find it hard to live without.

        First let’s start with the smell. The website describes it as an uplifting citrus aroma – which it is. However it is not overpowering or bold, just a nice sweet smell, that I believe has a slight honeysuckle aroma as well.

        Next, the texture… it is super light and silky. In short, it feels great on your skin. It is super versatile as well. I have used it as a moisturizer for my face and lips, and to blend my foundation with my kabuki brush. Both applications are spectacular. Their website (Farsali.com) lists other great uses as well.

        This product is for anyone and everyone as it is completely natural. The ingredients include: rosehip seed oil, pumpkin seed oil, 24k gold, vitamin E, lemongrass oil, and orange peel oil.

        It comes in two sizes 15ml ($35.00) and 30ml ($54.00). I’d recommend just getting the larger size right off the bat, because you are going to love it.

        Be forewarned – this product does sell out from time to time, so plan accordingly πŸ™‚

        Photo Infirmation: Farsali Rose Gold Elixir – Radiating Moisturizer.


        By now, most people have heard of Wish. For those of you who have not, Wish is an online shopping app, that has TONS of beauty related products, and several other things too. But for the purpose of this post, I wanted to focus on the beauty product element of Wish.

        First let me start by saying, I was extremely skeptical when I originally downloaded the app. They have beauty products listed on there, from brushes to lashes, and everything in between. The prices are CRAZY low, so… of course I figured there had to be some kind of catch, right?!

        Inevitably, I threw caution to the wind and placed an order for the items you see pictured above.

        Let’s start with the lashes. Super long, great quality, and best of all, I got five pairs for $1. For those of you that try a lot of different lashes, like I do; these were about the same quality of Red Cherry or Eyelure. They fit the length of my eyelid and were flexible and easy to apply.

        The beauty puffs… These were also $1 for a pack of four. If you are expecting to get a Beauty Blender for that bargain price of a quarter, you are mistaken here. These are decent for applying powder in a baking situation, but not much else.

        The pore strip masks… I love these. It is a peel off mask that smells fantastic. It cleans out your pores great and leaves your face feeling clean and unclogged afterwards. These come in a pack of ten for, you guessed it…A DOLLAR!

        The brush set… I have yet to splurge for the real deal on these luxury brushes, but the set from Wish is okay. Not great, and not horrible…Just okay. These were the most pricey product I purchased off the Wish app, at a whopping $10 for ten brushes varying in size.

        Overall Wish is a good place to start for items you want to try.. Especially if you are on a tight budget, but must satisfy your need for beauty products. Many items start for $1… Yes A DOLLAR!

        What have been your favorite products you’ve purchased off the Wish app. (or maybe products we should avoid in the future)?

        Thanks for reading!! πŸ™‚

        NYX Vivid Brights Liners

        NYX has done it again! The NYX Vivid Brights liners are so amazing. These relatively new liners are so fun and creative. They come in nine different shades, pretty much every color of the rainbow (literally); and for only $7 a piece, it’s easy to collect them all. Which you will indeed want to do.

        The color payoff is bright and vivid (as the name suggests). It is an easy to apply liquid liner with a brush applicator. I would easily give these liners a 10/10 because of their price point, their versatility (as they can be used in so many ways), and because of the range of color choices.

        Photo Information: NYX Vivid Brights in shades (top to bottom) Vivid Fire, Vivid Petal, Vivid Halo, and Vivid Blossom.
