I love anything strange and gimmicky – its just a lot of fun to discover new things so when I saw this EOS lipbalm the first time round I wasn’t really too interested. Then I was browsing eBay and saw these super cute little dough balls and had to buy a few to try. The gimmick is of course, that its shaped like a ball and the lipbalm is a dome shape. Does this make […]
Do you wear SPF on your lips? I’ve noticed that my lips dry out even quicker than normal in this kind of weather but I prefer some colour over just plain lip balm so I am on the look out for lipsticks and glosses that have SPF. This new Liplicious Moisturizing Balm from Boots No. 7 scared me when it landed on my doormat! Purple Liquorice is a deep purple infused with glitter. Its actually […]
So many lip balms, so little time. I am inundated with lip balms and god knows I need them with my dry, chaffed lips. I am very particular though – I like them to feel 100% smooth, almost creamy. Whilst I have lip balms in lots of textures, my favourite is the type that feels nourishing without too much gloss. So I was happy to try out some lip balms from Bonbon, a cute new […]
I must buy 2 new lip balms a week – I am always losing them including my SKII and La Mer lip balms – d’oh! My newest purchase was totally random, this Murumuru Butter Lip Cream by Bison (a Japanese brand) with SPF 11. Now the pot is quite small – about the size of a 50p pence piece but its quite a concentrated lip balm. I LOVE it. Its the kind of texture I […]
Sorry, its a bit of a mad lip swatch day today! Had a busy hectic day yesterday hence the simple posts! The Clarins Sun Lip Balms are gorge- if they bring them out again this year I will buy the new shades too. They feel like balms but are really pigmented and glossy AND they have SPF. This is the pink version: There are about £7 from Strawberrynet (they were actually released last year). Yay […]
So these were released last year but I only bought them this year in the Strawberrynet sale. I love them! They feel like balms more than glosses, are very hydrating and are pigmented too: In the orange – theres lots of multi sparkle: Yay or Nay?
I can’t hear the word Shills without thinking: I got Shillssssssssssssssss They’re multiplyin’ So I made my first venture into Shills (A Taiwanese brand – thanks to Alison for letting me know!). The brand seems to be a bit of a mish-mash of things, a bit like Benefit bit with more variation. I had to buy the Vanilla Milk Lip Balm because how cute is the packaging? Cuuuuuttteeeeeeee! I love that moo moo cow. I […]
I wonder if I will ever wake up and go, I am sick of Lip Balm? Well at the moment my passion for lip balm is still huge! Up for testing on my chapped lips (all that lipbalm and still they flake) is the Be Zen Treatment Lip Gloss – its a bestseller in Japan and is supposed to be both a (clear) gloss and a lip balm. Errr…..a bit like most glossy lip balms. […]
