A big part of this is the products we use and we are passionate about only suggesting make up which we use ourselves. We have been approached by a few companies in the past to discuss collaborations or sponsorship but if we are not blown away by the product we just couldn't rave about it.At the heart of it The Vintage Pamperbox is about me and Lilly. We treat the girls who attend our events and workshops like mates and you wouldn't recommend a patchy foundation or flaky mascara to your mates would you?

When I first came across Rockalily lipstick I will be honest I didn't have high hopes. Nobody loves a play on words better than me and within the beauty industry it seems as if every product has to have a clever name but the fact that Rockalily alluded to Rockabilly made me wonder if it was someone looking to cash in on the recent vintage explosion and if so how likely was it that the lipstick would be much cop? So I'm ashamed to say I ignored it. Swanning around in my Mac or Beseme glory, arrogantly dismissing this new pretender.

I ordered two of Rockalilys red shades. Roulette and Rockette.Roulette has a slight brown tone so was perfect for Lilly and Rockette is your classic blue toned bright red so ticked my shade box straight away. By this time I had done my research on Rockalily and really liked the cut of the owners ReeRee Rockettes jib. Not only was her website full of real looking sassy gals wearing fifties finery,she also ran a regular get together called "Wonderful Women" which was all about women in business supporting each other and her blog was inspirational and funny. Basically she is the real deal. ReeRee looks like a Rockabilly queen and appears to have a brain the size of a planet. Every day she posts what she is wearing on her blog and every day I want at least one part of her outfit. So far so good but what about the lipstick I hear you shout.

Probably the best lipstick I have ever tried.
From the smell (coco butter) to the application (glides on like a dream, none of the dragging you get from other true reds) to its wear time (it stays put) Both me and Lilly were amazed how long lasting this lipstick was even after an afternoon of teaching, having a cup of tea and a sarnie it still stayed on, didn't feather and didn't make our lips sore like so many of the longer lasting lip colours do.
To say that we are converts is an understatement. Rockalily is now the only lipstick the Vintage Pamperbox use for our events and photo shoots.We even approached ReeRee to ask if she would be happy to sponsor the Pamperbox and we are ecstatic that she agreed. That's how much we love it, we want our business to be associated with it.
Its latest outing from our make up kits was a photo shoot we did last week with Burlesque performer Fanny Divine. Fanny is launching a new company called PinUps in Pinnies and yet again Rockette Red worked beautifully.

So that's the story of how my love affair with Rockalily started and what better way to finish this post than by having a quick chat with the amazing ReeRee Rockette herself
