This is kind of a cute idea – Holika Holika have a new range of lip balms which come in a set of two, 1 for the Mr, 1 for the Missus. There’s Strawberry Smoothie (Pink-Strawberry and Clear – Yoghurt), Milky Soda (Clear – Milk, Blue – Soda), Mojito (spelt Mohitto) Kiss (Yellow – Lemon, Blue – Mint) and Cherry Cock (yes really) Kiss, (Pink – Cherry, Brown- Cola). Now even though some of these […]
Every time I visit London, I like to seek out some beauty brands that I can’t buy ‘oop north’ [that means UP NORTH for those of you who don't know]. I noticed some UK beauty bloggers talking about Selfridges Beauty Playground (Oxford Street) which has a number of niche products in a relaxed layout (it was cool by the way, but they need Air Conditioning. Bloody boiling in there!). There I saw a small […]
I have an addiction to buying new lip balms, especially if they are unusual in some way, like a new texture or scent. My forever go to lip balm is Sisley, although it is expensive, it’s lasted ages and it really does repair my lips in one overnight thick application. But that doesn’t mean I won’t find other purse friendly alternatives! Rohto Mentholatum are a health care company that produce a number of products but […]
When I go abroad, especially Asia I love to see what the big mainstream brands have for the customers out there – for example, the major brands almost always have a whitening range that isn’t available for the European market. Even high street brands have different ranges for the brand. I spotted this cheap and cheerful lip balm from Maybelline which I don’t think is out in the UK? This is a natural lip balm […]
My lip balm obsession is never ending; I am forever buying and losing them! OMI Menturm is a Japanese brand that make an array of products, and they have some pretty well known lip balms that usually have a strong menthol scent and tingle. Being up for a gimmick I couldn’t resist these Moist Cube or rather, Moiscube lip balms… Why? BECAUSE THEY ARE CUBE SHAPED! Makes all the difference don’t ya know!
Hope Girl is a Korean cosmetic and skincare brand that I recently discovered whilst browsing eBay! I was suckered in my the leopard print packaging. I purchased 4 of their ‘Milky Balm Lipsticks’ because they are supposed to have a creamy hydrating texture: They come in boxes like this. There’s something a bit dated about them but oh well, we’re not here for the boxes! These lipsticks are quite pigmented which is unusual as […]
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, as far as lip balms go anyway, someone presents you with a new lip balm concept. Shell Lip Balm is made from a number of natural ingredients (Coconut oil, Mango Seed Butter, Jojoba Seed Oil, Macadamia Seed Oil and more) – it also comes in a completely real shell, which is recycled and cleaned accordingly. Each Shell Lip Balm comes in a pouch: There are some very […]
Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters have made quite a splash in the USA, and even before it’s official launch this month, there were many, many ladies talking about it’s amazing formula. The Colorburst Lip Butters come in a whopping 20 shades, and are a combination of lip balm and tinted colour. It contains mango, shea and coconut butter and is made to boost hydration in the lips. Oh and I really like the snazzy packaging! I […]
