Holiday Buys

22 Dec

I visited Canada in September and these are some of the beauty purchases I made. These are not available in the UK, so I thought I would try them out.

I bought these eyeliners from Sephora, a pack of four mini liners. From top to bottom: Midnight black, Kaki Green, Psychedelic Purple and Nuage. I have been using these liners for a while now and I think they are quite good! They are soft and easy to apply and the pigmentation is just fab!

I also got the above face brush from Sephora. It’s got really soft but firm bristles and is quite a good exfoliating and cleansing tool, and a way cheaper alternative to the ever popular Clarisonic. I use this with my facial wash/cleanser.

I love tinted lip balms, and I had read a couple of good reviews about the Maybelline balms so I decided to try a couple .The top  one called Grape Vine gives a bit of a purple tint, whilst the bottom, Pink Punch gives your lips a nice pink tint. They are lovely to use and very moisturising on the lips. Wonder why these are not available in the UK.

The above products are also in the tinted lip balm category. They are covergirl lipslicks in Hipster above and Daring below. Like the Maybelling balms, they also give your lips a hint of a tint and are very moisturiing.

I thought I would try one of the wet and wild eyeshadows as reviews of these have been positive. The above is a trio of nice neutrals called Knock on wood. These are very pigmented and easy to apply as they blend well.

The above products were purchased from Bath and Body Works. From left to right: Paris Amour body lotion and fragrance mist and White Citrus  fragrance mist. Paris Amour has a lovely floral fragrance whilst White Citrus has a sharp citrus fragrance.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

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.

This Week’s Favourites

21 Jan

This week, I have been getting re-acquainted with some of my favourite products. Brief description Clockwise from left:

Bobbi Brown Tinted Lip Balm in Citrus – This is a peachy-orange tinted balm which gives your lips a lovely subtle slightly shimmery colour and shine.

Benefit’s Benetint Lip and Cheek Stain – This gives a subtle deep pink colour to lips and cheeks.

Collection 2000 Shimmer Shades Blush in Blushalicious –  I realy love this blush, it gives cheeks a really nice subtle colour.

ELF Mineral Face Primer – A transparent primer which makes your skin feel smooth and poreless when applied. It makes the foundation application process easier and helps your foundation last longer.

Avon Colourtrend Kajal Stick in Black and Warm brown – This is a double ended eyeliner with black on one end and a dark brown on the other. I like this liner because it is very pigmented and lasts longer than other eyeliners I’ve used. I sometimes use the dark brown as a lipliner.

Avon Shine Attract Lipstick in Rose Bouquet P2 – This is like a lipstick and lipbalm in one. The lipstick has an outer transparent balm which gives shine and an inner core which gives colour. It’s very pigmented and gives a satin finish.

Revlon Colourstay 12 Hour Eyeshadow in Sable – A neutral brown satin shade which blends very well and does last long on the eyelids.

Avon Strawberry Sorbet Lip Balm – This clear lip balm is very moisturising, giving your lips a nice subtle shine. I use this before applying lipstick.

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation – This foundation applies like a dream! It gives skin a nice dewy finish and great coverage.

Modelsown lipgloss in Blackberry – This gloss gives your lips high shine and colour, and is also moisturising.

2TrueGlossywear Lipstick in shade 10 – This is a very wearable glossy deep berry shade.
