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?
This is one of my favourite colours of the ones I bought. La-La is a hot pink, that is a little sheer so that it’s totally wearable: Here it is on the lips! I love it! This and Sponge Cake are my favourite colours: What do you think?
Tanned is a nude, unshimmery nude beige colour. It’s the kind of shade that is right up my street, although I have to say, this one is nice, not amazing: Tanned would work so beautifully with a tan and dark smokey eyes. What do you think?
Probably my favourite shade from the Mega Shine haul I made is this colour, Sponge Cake. Sponge Cake! Best name ever! This is a pretty nudeish beige pink with loads of sparkle. On my lips, it doesn’t show up very much, you just get a hint of tint: What do you think?
Ideally, for Kissing Day there would be no lip gloss (men hate that stuff!) but I couldn’t resist featuring my current favourite lip gloss (favourite lip gloss gets to sit in my coat pocket). It’s Paul & Joe’s Lip Gloss – in the new packaging in 06 which is the perfect peach with a slight […]
Are you a fan of lip plumpers? Me…sort of. I do like a bit of a tingle, but not too much and also I already have very full lips so I’m not really looking for the fish lips look, thanks. I was sent this extremely cute Philosophy Big Mouth (was that the message?!) Lip Plumper […]
I was sent some bits and pieces from the Boots No 7 collection called the Sun Drenched Collection. There’s the Bronzer, the Eyeshadow Quad and Sun Drenched 22ct lip gloss. The packaging is very golden: The Sun Drenched Collection is Limited Edition…. The quad is a bronzy combination of brown, gold, bronze and silver. The […]
My closest encounter with Twilight was seeing the first and second films and deciding that actually, I quite liked them despite obvious errors, and that if I was Bella I would have some kind of polygamist situation going on. (No, no, no, can’t read the book, no time!) This led to Mr Candy taking much […]
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. […]
I was tidying up my make up and found this Lip Sync duo from Senna Cosmetics at the bottom of a drawer! Lip Sync is a duo ended product, with a lipstick on one end and a lip gloss on the other. You can get 3 looks out of it! They say: Long-lasting, delicious biscotti […]
Soap & Glory seem to have a lot of good ideas, and I was sent this rather cute Might Mouth Kit to try out a few months back. Inside the cardboard box, lies a dual ended lip scrub and balm product and a plumping lip gloss: They say: Soap & Glory Mighty Mouth Lipcare & […]
I picked up this Rouge Allure Laque Lip Colour a while ago from Cheap Smells (for about £13 – they are pretty expensive at full price, about £21-£22 if I remember correctly). The texture and pigmentation is just heavenly. Not sure why I decided to go for Dynastie which is a richly coloured coral-red. Its […]
Another one of the items I hauled from Japan was the Canmake Nudy Glow Rouge Lip Glosses. There’s five in the set, I chose two: Nude Lips are my natural, spiritual home! Its my favourite kind of lip colour followed by peach, then a soft pink. Probably because I prefer stronger eye make up. The […]
Remember mood rings? So stylish: I thought they were magic. They never seemed to change a variety of colours for me, always blue or green. Well, Trish McEvoy’s Instant Pick Me Up For Lips isn’t quite mood changing but it does adapt to a certain shade of pink on your lips. Instant Pick-Me-Up Lips is […]
There’s nothing better than a good bargain…apart from…well getting something totally free. I picked up this bargain of three Bourjois Eau De Gloss Lipglosses from eBay, all three for £4.50 (£2 shipping). I don’t know if they still sell these on Bourjois stands – usually when you start getting these products from discount counters its […]
Reader Kuri rather sweetly helped my purchase some Canmake goodies from Japan! I will go through the items and review them bit by bit! I have always loved the look of Canmake although the prices were too high on beauty shops – its an extremely affordable drugstore level brand after all. Thanks for all the […]
After buying Freeze Aqualumiere because a purdy shop assistant told me to, I went back for a second purchase. The thing about the Chanel Aqualumiere Lip Glosses, is that they aren’t the most exciting range of colours so I found myself potentially picking out a few (I adore the formula) but none of the colours […]
I’ve swatched Bloodwork by Nars a few times because its so unique. Its a shiny, almost vinyl finish deep red: My my my, you do have to be careful with this one because its so pigmented, so glossy and so red. But its unique and will give you such an amazing hot red lip! What […]
