Hi Lovelies, Mrs Dowdells Fashion here.
Outside of Instagram I’m generally known as Lauren Dowdell. I got married last year to my wonderful husband and we have a cat called Mrs Whiskers. Mrs Whiskers tends to end up in most of my photos. She is so sassy and loud, but is just ridiculously cute. I think our parents like her more than they like us.
I have been starting to seriously post my outfit of the day and any make up I use on Instagram, in the last year or so. Tirelessly, my husband takes my photos, using our iPhones. Nothing fancy here. My husband actually thinks that my phone is just an extension of my hand. Which is pretty true. We love to have adventures together and mainly going on holiday. Yassss.
Now down to business….
I found Hashtag Bloggers on Instagram and saw that they were doing an ambassador program. I applied, a few days later I was accepted. Yay for me. From this is was sent a tee with #ashtag bloggers written across the front in a beautiful baby blue colour. The t-shirt was great, perfect for a casual day. You can pair the t-shirt with a pair of skinny jeans and a pair of your favourite heels. Or with a skirt and some Converse.
In with the parcel I got a lovely necklace that actually I have not taken off. So many people have commented on it. #obssessed
Also I got a lipstick from No7 available at most Boots. Anyone who knows me, knows that my signature make up item is a lippy. Three make up items I could not live without 1. Eyeliner 2. Mascara 3. Lipstick.
The lipstick was in a gorgeous shade called Raspberry Silk. I love a bright pink shade and the shade was perfect. I’m pretty pale, so the shade for me was really flattering and did not drown my skin tone out. The lipstick just glided on like silk and when I patted off the excess, there was hardly any. The best place to test the lipstick out was at work, coffee, snacks and lunch of course.
I can say honestly, I only had to re-apply it once and it was only just a quick swoosh across. My work bestie confirmed this on my IG post.
The lipstick was pretty matte and did not dry my lips out, which I find happens with some matte lipsticks.
“Hell hath no fury, like no vaseline on a Ruby Woo day. You know what I mean?!”
Lastly, can we talk about the packaging. I am a sucker for great packaging. The lipstick looks beautiful on the outside. Its compact enough, to go in your makeup bag. I have a bag for my make up and one for my lipstick.
Overall my thoughts on the Lipstick has to be a Hashtag Blogger 10/10.
I hope when you go to purchase it, as I hope you do, that you will be as happy as I am.
Lots of Love Mrs Dowdells Fashion and Mrs Whiskers.
