Quick Routine For A Dinner Out

Dinner Wearing Revol Colourburst Lacquer Balm in Enticing 

On Wednesday I went out for dinner with the girls to celebrate my friends birthday. I'd had got back from my tutorial pretty late and didn't have very long at all to get ready. So I thought I would write a quick post to tell you how I take my look from day to night in a short space of time. 

The first think that I did was brush my hair, spray a little bit of dry shampoo for some volume and shove my hair up into a messy ponytail. It looks so chic and effortless and takes less than a minute. The next think I did was redo my concealer, and put on a little bit more mascara to wake my eyes up again. I kept the same outfit that I was wearing during the day but swapped my handbag for a little black clutch and my converse for some heeled black boots. But the main think I wanted to talk about was the lip product that I grabbed to complete my look. 

I did a huge Boots haul earlier this week which you will know about if you follow me on instagram where I went a little crazy with the 3 for 2 on all makeup brands. One of the things that I picked up was a Revlon Colourbrust Lacquer Blam in the shade Enticing. I tried these before when they first came out and really loved to nude colour that I got. And when I saw this beautiful christmassy red I couldn't not put it in my basket! I think is a perfect red shade for me but would probably suit most people too. It's supeer moisturising and glossy and has a little bit of a gold shimmer which I think looks gorgeous. And what I was mosst impressed about was the staying power. Even though it's glossy it stains your lips as well. So even after a while when the shine starts to go the colour is still there. I managed to eat dough balls, pizza and choclate cake with it on! 

So if you are looking for an inexpensive glossing red lip colour for the coming party season then this is the one that I would really recommend. Or even just something to put on before you head out do dinner when you don't have much time to get ready. 

Hope you are all having a lovely day. I am writing this after finally handing in my university coursework. It feels so good to have finally finished it! Fingers crossed this means I will have some more time to dedicated to my blog now. Speak soon :) xx


  1. The lip colour is so beautiful! Looks amazing on you too.x x

  2. Lovely! Being an exchange student I'm out like all day so I sometimes don't have a lot of time to change from day to night. I guess this is why I absolutely loved this post. And the look is gorgeous!
