Miss Sporty Tinted Lip Balm

20 Feb

I am so far loving these new tinted lip balms from Miss Sporty. I have been using them for the past couple of days and I find them to be glossy and moisturising while giving your lips a subtle or sheer tint.

Heartbreaker Kiss SOS, Gossip Kiss SOS, and Honey Moon Kiss SOS

Heartbreaker kiss is a red shade which gives your lips a sheer red tint, whilst Gossip Kiss is a peachy orange shade which is almost invisible (on my lips ). It might show up more on paler skin tones. Honey Moon Kiss is a berry shade and of the three I’ve tried, this is more pigmented and gives your lips the most colour.

The balms are available in five shades at superdrug at the budget price of £1.99.


L’oréal Rouge Caresse Lipstick

8 Feb

I am really exicted about these new lipsticks from L’oréal. I had a chance to try one called Sweet Berry #103, which is a kind of nude pink shade. It has a very smooth texture, so applies smoothly to your lips and feels quite soothing, like a tinted lipbalm but with more colour. It gives your lips sheer shiny colour and moisture at the same time. I also like the chic packaging.

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.

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.

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.

Kiko Makeup Milano Cosmetics

7 Nov

I visited the new Westfield Shopping Center in Stratford some days ago, and there I discovered the kiko make-up store. Kiko is an Italian brand and they have a wide range of make-up,  lipglosses, eyeshadows, lipsticks, nail polishes etc. in a wide variety of shades. The products are quite reasonably priced as well. I bought a few products which I have been trying out and I can honestly say they are really good. The lipglazes and lipgloss are £3 each and they are very moisturising, shiny and non-sticky. I also got an eyeshadow in a neutral shade, which is very pigmented, blends really well and stays put for hours without creasing, and I did not use any primer. The single eye shadows are £5.90 each. I bought a matt lipstick in a brown neutral shade, which, although matt feels very comfortable to wear and is not dry at all. These are £5.90 each. I got a nail polish £4.90 also in a neutral shade, which I have yet to try. I will tell you what I think about it sometime soon.
If you’ve not already done so, I think it’s a brand worth checking out. Really helpful and friendly sales assistants.

Boots 17 Supreme Shine Lipstick

3 Nov

I tried the new Boots 17 Supreme Shine Lipstick in Bon Bon and Pink Posey. Bon bon is a nude pinky brown shade which I really love and Pink Posey is a lovely bright pink colour. The lipsticks are very pigmented and are comfortable to wear but in my opinion, not shiny enough. They are available in 13 shades, priced £4.99.
