RealHer cosmetics. The lipstick review

We all need a little bit of empowerment (or a lot) and even the smallest gestures can make us fell better and stronger. When I see a makeup company that embrace it, I’m always immediately drawn to it. RealHer cosmetics brand is just about that.


Our mission is to empower and bring out the best in the modern woman: to know her worth, to feel proud of her individuality, to love each and every one of her flaws, and to not fear who she really is.’

What can I say? It’s just beautiful. Making a world a better place. Now the real test is obviously the quality of the products itself.

I received all 5 lipsticks from their line (I guess they were going for quality over quality and I embrace that). Even though the range is small, but the shade selection is great, everyone can find something for themselves from different skin tones, to seasons, to occasions. And the name of each lipstick colour is an empowering message. So every time you see it, you feel better. How cool is that?

So what do they say about their lipsticks?

‘Introducing RealHer's debut line of gentle, moisturizing lipsticks enriched with Shea Butter, Jojoba Seed Oil, Macadamia Oil and Vitamin E.’
‘Each colour features a soft matte finish with an ever so slight gloss that glides onto the lips smoothly with a creamy rich colour pigment.’

I would say they are definitely more creamy to glossy texture then matte, although I noticed that one color- 'I Define Beauty Myself' is more matte then the rest of the colours which has much more gloss. For those ones I had to blot the lips with thin tissue if I wanted to absorb the moisture and get more creamy finish rather glossy. 

I was so surprised by how actually pigmented they are. One swipe and you get a full on colour. They also have a great staying power and do not dry the lips even a slightest bit (keep in mind I have naturally really dry lips). Two lighter coloured lippies has a perfect combination of creaminess and pigmentation. The more dramatic colours '(Be yourself be RealHer', 'I am Powerful' and 'Women Rule the World') are so super pigmented and creamy that I definitely feel the need of using a lip brush if I want a precise application and a lip pencil to not let the colour bleed outside the lip line. 

My personal favourite is I Define Beauty Myself (well the name says it all, but I love the product as much as the name!) it’s a great cool toned pink which gives you enough colour to brighten your face but still neutral which makes it perfect for every day wear. Second favourite that will be worn a lot in the autumn/ winter season is I am Powerful which is very deep almost smoky reddish berry shade.

P.S. Even though I got these lipsticks as a gift, I was not paid to review them. I am and will always be honest with my opinions.

Best wishes,

Zydre Zi

Maybelline 'The Blushed Nudes' tutorial. Summer Party Look

Hey everyone! Created a very quick and easy look perfect for hot summer parties. This look would look gorgeous on all eye shapes including hooded eyes!

To see how to create it yourself, click on this video:

Maybelline ‘The blushed nudes’ eyeshadow palette
Maybelline ‘Chromatics’ Khol liner #Purple Light
Maybelline ‘Eyestudio lasting drama gel liner 24h’ #Black
Maybelline ‘The falsies push up drama’ mascara waterproof

Maybelline ‘Chromatics’ Khol liner #Purple Light

Maybelline ‘Master drama The Nudes’ 16hr hold pencil #20 Rose petal

These pencils are both more of a gel texture, super creamy and very long lasting. Colors are very rich, pigmented and has a slight sheen to them. They would work perfectly on the waterline, but unfortunately my eyes are too sensitive and they start watering if I apply them on the waterline.

'The Blushed Nudes palette' is a great one if you want some quick soft makeup looks, although it has couple of deeper shades so it is possible to create a dramatic eye look too. Most of the colors are slightly shimmery *but not sparkly) except one rose- beige- nude share. Absolutely enjoying this palette for everyday soft looks.
