Elf Mineral Face Primer – This is a silicone based face primer, which is in a transparent gel form. It is non-oily and I find it effectively prepares your skin for the application of your foundation, giving your skin a smooth finish and helping your foundation stay on longer.

This is MUA single eye shadow in shade 13. It is a very deep purple colour which I have really loved using this month. It is very pigmented and can also be used as an eyeliner. This can also be used to create a fabulous smokey eye look. It’s a bargain costing only a pound.

Rimmel Volume Lipstick in Boost – I have had this lipstick for quite a while now, and have only just rediscovered it. It’s a lovely satin deep pink colour which is very pigmented and moisturising on the lips.

Kiko Glossy Eye Pencil – This is another rediscovered product which I had not been using, but have enjoyed using this month. It is very pigmented and gives a glossy sheen to your waterline or eye lids.

Benefit That Gal Brightening Face Primer – I have really loved using this, this month! When I am not using the Elf primer, I opt for this one which brightens your skin and provides a good base for your foundation. I think it does make my complexion glow.

May Favourites

Clinique Chubby Stick in Richer Raisin

This is a really lovely dark wine shade, which applies quite sheer and is very moisturising on the lips.

Dirty Works Coconut Caress Body Butter

I absolutely love this body butter! Love the fun retro packaging. It has a pleasant coconut fragrance and it is easily absorbed by the skin upon application, leaving your skin soft and moisturised, with a pleasant scent. Available at Sainsbury, currently on sale for £2.24. Normal price £4.99.

MUA Lipgloss Shade 5 and Lipstick Shade 6

I have been using a lot of pinks lately, I just think it’s a nice bright and summery colour. The two above are my  current favourites. I love using this lipgloss over the lipstick, although most times I use the gloss on its own. The gloss is non-sticky, moisturising and glossy.

Alberto Balsam Mandarin and Papaya Conditioner

The main reason why I love this conditioner so much is its fantastic fruity smell. It actually does smell like Mandarin and papaya and moreover, it leaves my hair feeling soft and conditioned not to mention fruity!

Boots 17 Berry Crush Lip Stain

9 Apr

The current trend for lip stains continue, with Boots 17, recently launching their Berry Crush lip stains. Pictured above and below are Cherry Berry, which is a deep berry shade and Blushing which I think  is a very wearable suit-all pink shade.

The Lip stains contain vitamin C, and come with a felt tip applicator and a lip balm at the end which I find to be very moisturising and soothing on the lips. I love these lip stains which are long lasting and WILL STAY on your lips till you remove with cleanser. They are available in six shades, priced £4.99 and are available from Boots.

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.
