Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose – This lip butter is a joy to use! It applies smoothly to your lips, moisturises the lips well, and has a delightful raspberry fragrance , which I love.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Popsticks

22 May

I am loving the current trend for barely there moisturising lip colours, which are great for the summer months. Some time ago, Maybelline launched their Colour Sensational Popsticks, which are bright neon coloured transparent lipbalms in lipstick form.  

I have been using Citrus Slice, (pictured above) which is a neon orange colour. It is moisturising on the lips, but after a couple of hours, you would need to re-apply. The popsticks are’nt glossy at all, think Chapstick sheen with a tiny hint of colour. This is not a very pigmented product as it is almost invisible on the lips, (hence no swatches) but I quite like the tiny tiny hint of orange colour it gave my lips. These are available in five shades priced £7.19 each, from Boots or Superdrug.

Rimmel’s 1000 Kisses Transferproof Lip-Tint + Balm

29 Jan

Rimmel’s new lip tints are now availabie! They come in six shades priced £5.99 each, cheaper than the Revlon lip stains £7.99 which these look similar to. (I have not tried the Revlon lip tints so I can’t make a comparison) I got my hands on nothing so nude (pictured above) which is a nice peachy shade (swatched on paper below)

 

The lip tint has a lovely apple scent and the balm is unscented and makes your lips feel soft and moisturised. I am not so sure about it being transferproof because after having a cup of tea, I could see the peachy tint on the rim of my mug. Nevertheless, I would use it again coz I think it’s a lovely colour.

Available from Boots and Superdrug.

Tesco’s Vivo Makeup

8 Dec

I have been trying out some products from Tesco’s Vivo makeup range and here’s what I think of the products I’ve tried so far:

Lipstick in Spiced Cinnamon  £1.99 – which is a pinky nude shade. It has a nice creamy satin texture and applies smoothly to your lips.

Baked Shimmer Palette in Divine £6.00 – The palette contains four eyeshadows and a blusher. The eye shadows are shimmery and pigmented enough, but a bit powdery,  Applies better when used with a primer. The blusher gives your cheeks a  lovely subtle shimmer  pink colour. I like the blusher best.

Single eye shadow in Golden Leaf £1.50 – It’s a lovely golden green satin shade, which is nicely pigmented and blendable.

Shimmer and Shine Lip Gloss in Just Peachy £1.50 – This is a lovely shimmery peach shade with sparkling particles, gives high shine to your lips, but not much colour.

Available from Tesco Extra stores

Miners Fluro Gloss

25 Nov

For the past two weeks, I have been using Miners new fluro gloss lip glosses, which are available in five neon shades. I tried Fever which is a red shade and Purple Rain, which is a light purple colour. These glosses will give your lips a light tint, they are also moisturising and non-sticky. Both glosses smell the same, they both have a lovely cherry scent.

GREAT TINTED LIP GLOSS

I am a big lip gloss fan so when I saw Hawaiian Tropic’s sunkissed moisturizing lip gloss, I had to give it a try. I choose island berry, a lovely tinted berry shade, which gives your lips a very subtle berry colour. It smells great, tastes sweet, and is not at all sticky. Thumbs up!

Pluses – great colour, great taste, moisturizing, non-sticky.

Minuses – You might need to re-apply often.
