I bought this beautiful Chanel lip gloss whilst in Duty Free – actually Mr C bought it. I told him it was “about £6” and when he was charged £16 he gave me a death look from the till. Men…have no idea how expensive make up is these days. I chose 146 Coral Love – so beautiful! Coral Chanel gloss sounds amazing to me! Coral love is a light peach with micro sparkles. Chanel make […]
When it comes to lipsticks and lipgloss I am a sucker for a luxurious lip product. And what better than a product by Chanel; their (fairly) new Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss Pure Shine Intense Colour glosses come in a variety of shades, and looks similar to Rouge Allure Laque but in a longer tube. I have three shades here, fairly natural ones to try, Insolence, Confidence and Insouciance. They say: CHANEL reveals the next […]
I love the idea of red lips, but let’s face it – it’s hard to find a truly wearable red lips. MeMeMe’s Light Me Up High Shine Lipgloss has a built in light in the lid which is useful when you need to apply gloss in…dark situations. Hey, it happens! There’s also a handy mirror on the lid. Intense looks like a bold red in the tube, and I wasn’t sure how pigmented it would […]
I really love Kiss Me products at the moment, and especially their Heavy Rotation range! A lot of Japanese brands err on the side of sparkly and sheer, but Heavy Rotation is full on NUDE LIPS and SMOKEY EYES! BAM! I already own some of their brow concealer, lip concealers and lip glosses, but I noticed this new sheerer formula on eBay: I love nude lips, I really do but I’ve started to find the […]
I love hot pink lips! There might not be that many opportunities to wear it, but I still love ’em! A sheer hot pink gloss is usually a good way to wear such a bright colour. This lip gloss from MeMeMe is 19 Cosmic and comes with lip plumping qualities: It’s definitely got colour too it but the glossiness makes it fun to wear and sort of perky! A final lament to Summer, perhaps? On […]
ELF has three new shades of Hypershine Lip Gloss; Bubblegum, Mauve and Berry Cherry. I love these little lip applicators; reminds me of a Ruby & Millie lip gloss I bought years ago, it was special to me, my first £10 lip gloss product! ELF’s Hypershine is far more reasonable at just £1.50! I don’t know how they even package it in cardboard, it’s so cheap. They say: Hyper, glass-like shine infused with micro-mirror technology […]
One ELF product I haven’t tried before is the Luscious Liquid Lipsticks. It looks like a lip gloss but wears and applies like a lipstick. They say: True color therapy is here. Intensive hydrating agents along with natural pigments leave lips with Long-lasting color and moisture. This luscious liquid lipstick creates wearable color that flatters a multitude of skin tones and looks. I was really quit excited to try this because I love the texture […]
Elf Minty Lip Gloss is a new one for me – part of the slightly more expensive studio line. Minty lip gloss comes in a very sleek long tube that reminds me of Nars/Chanel’s packaging. When you get it in your hands it feels a lot lighter but to look at, it’s chic for something that costs just £3.50. They say: The sheer glossy color conditions lips with a minty fresh taste. Can be worn […]
Another set of new colours from ELF cosmetics. This is one of my favourite lip glosses because I like the way it looks, I like the texture and the overall finish of the lip glazes. Elf plumping lip glaze comes with two sides; one is a crystal white lip plumper (has that minty smell and feel), the other side is a sheer lip glaze. You can use the sides together or on their own, but […]
I am already a fan of the ELF Mineral Lip Gloss so was pleased to try out their three newest shades; Wild, Daring and Crystal Clear. Daring is a sheer, sparkly red, Crystal Clear is, well, clear and Wild is a soft sorbet pink-peach type shade. I like that these lip glosses are unsticky, and I think they make the lips look fuller and hydrated. The packaging of ELF is great for a budget brand; […]
Let’s face it, there are tons of colour changing lip glosses about – the idea is not new, however because it’s Bourjois and in a very very cute tube that reminds me of a flower in bloom, I gave it a go. Also it’s called Rose Exclusif – I believe we should change the spelling from Exclusive to Exclusif because it’s much more interesting to write. How it works: Because the PH of your lips […]
How good can a £3 lip gloss be? Well, elf (or eyes lip face) is going to show you. I remember when I first discovered the range and everything was £1. I was quite young back then, and I found that with £20 I could buy 20 different things to try out – heaven! These days the price of elf has gone up but in the grand scheme of things, it’s still an extremely good […]
eBay is such a great place for make up bargains! I picked up these two Paul & Joe Lip Glosses (they have been repackaged recently so look slightly different to the new ones) in Galaxie (a silver with glitter) and Passion (a juicy sheer red with glitter). I can never get enough of Paul & Joe packaging: I’m glad that Paul & Joe is easier to purchase these days, on various retail outlets. The silver […]
I saw a You Tuber used this lip gloss in their video (I don’t remember who it was, sorry!) but it looked so pretty and sparkly! This is NYX Round Gloss in Sorbet, a pale pink with fine silver sparkle: I think I prefer the texture of the round gloss, as opposed to the mega shines, although, I have had packaging issues with the round glosses. I the wand tends to fall out of the […]
Love Skinfood so much at the moment, they have so many ranges of cosmetics and skincare too choose from it’s hard to resist. Can you imagine the scene if I got to visit Korea and was let loose in one of the stores?! *drools* Alas, I am not in Korea so I have to make do with eBay. My latest purchases are these Fresh Juice Lip Glosses, in Peach Juice (No. 6) and Coffee Bean […]
Do you like a bit of lip plumping? Ever since Duwop’s Lip Venom, every other lip gloss I buy has menthol-tingly ingredients in it, devised to make my lips look fuller. *newsflash* I don’t need thicker lips! Seriously, I have used some lip glosses that have burned my lips so badly, and when I go outside and the cold air hits it – OUCH! Although, I guess I am partial to a little tingling. Plump […]
I bought this Integrate Diamond Lipgloss from Adambeauty…it was the only shade left in the sale and I kind of felt sorry for it. Integrate is by Shiseido – it’s spokesperson was once the holy Angelina Jolie. The brand has hits and misses – their mascara is terrific; their eyeliners are average. This is their diamond lipgloss, filled with micro sparkles: The shade is OR249. The tube itself is fairly small and compact and the […]
Final part of my NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss Swatches! Today is Sugar Pie (first from the left) the lightest shade of the 6 I bought. It turns into a whitish-silvery-pink on me with some fine sparkle: What do you think?
What’s a great way to wear red? Why, sheer of course! NYX’s Juicy Red is a very sheer red gloss with no sparkle: The result on me is more pink than red. If you want something really sheer but sorta juicy, this gloss may work: What do you think?
Just the name Sweet Heart is lovely for a lip gloss, isn’t it? Sweet heart is a sheer pink with a touch of white – the kind of shade I can imagine Kim Kardashian wearing. Dontcha think? I personally think it’s too light for me. What do you think of this colour?
