Favourite Lip Products of The Month

30 May

I popped into H&M recently and was quite pleased to discover that they have updated their make up range, lip products, eye shadows and nail polishes, so I picked up a couple of lip products and I must say they are not bad at all!

First up is the lipstick, which is a lovely shade of red that is blue based and excellent for my skin tone! It is very pigmented and applies quite smoothly to the lips, giving them some amount of moisture. Available at H&M stores priced £3.99.

Above is the tinted Shimmer lip balm, which is a joy to use! It moisturises your lips, adding a lovely pearl sheen to them. Can be used as a base to lighten darker shades of lipstick. H&M stores priced £1.50.

I have also been trying out a lipstick from Barry M’s new lip colour range, lipsticks infused with cocoa butter. The shade I have been using is no. 156 Vicious Violet (pictured above). This is a highly pigmented violet colour. It has a lovely texture and feels quite soothing  on the lips. I guess the cocoa butter is doing its moisturising duties! This lipstick is long lasting and can be quite hard to remove from the lips with just a plain wipe or tissue, so a good make up remover could be required. Available in 30 shades, priced £4.49 from Boots or Superdrug.

I’ve been shopping…

1 Mar

…And here’s what I got

Now that summer is fast approaching, I thought it was time I got a mattifying primer as I’ve got oily skin, so I bought L’oreal Studio Secrets Anti-Shine mattifying Primer £10.29. A lot (of good things) has been said about this product so I am looking foward to trying this out.

I have been wanting to try an orange blusher for quite some time now so when I saw this at the Barry M counter, I thought why not? and moreover at £4.59, it’s not as expensive as Nars Taj Mahal blusher. I got two eyeshadow pecils, one in #7, which is a shimmering aubergine colour and #6, which is a shimmering dark blue (darker than they look in the photo). The eyeshadow pencils £4.59 each, are ‘waterproof, Smooth and long wearing’ according to Barry M.

I stopped by the Kiko store in Westfield Stratford, they were having a sale so I got a matt Lipstick in #62 £3.00, which is a reddish copper colour, and a glossy/shiny lipstick in #129 , £2.00 which is a brown bronze colour. I also got a lip pencil in #315, which is a warm dark brown colour.

If you pop into Tesco to do some shopping, check out these nail polishes if you can. They only cost 99 pence each and you only need two coats to get good coverage, lasted for over five days on my nails without chipping. From left to right, Bronze, Cocoa, Mulberry Pie, Perfect Pink and Emerald.

I got this lip balm £1.99 from Sainsbury, cause I love the berry scent (might be too strong for some people) and the fun retro packaging. I am not sure about the 24 hour moisture, but it is non-sticky and gives your lips some shine.
