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 shimmer: The applicator is a brush. It seems to be softer than the old brushers: And on the lips…
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 Gloss in Nude to try. Cute Bee….. They say, use this if: # you want super soft, super sexy lips […]
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 bronzer is completely matte and has variations of bronze, and the lip gloss is a sheer peach with some gold […]
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 pleasure in branding me a Twi-Hard, something he still says to this day which then leads him to a fit […]
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 […]
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 flavored and moisturizing lipstick and a complementary lipgloss in one elegant package. You’ll be plumping your pout too with collagen […]
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 & Plumping kit provides 3 Steps to gorgeous lips kit contains a Smooth & Soften double ended Lip Stick and Super […]
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 quite dramatic – more than what I would normally wear in the daytime anyway: Its ok, I’m not bowled over […]
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 Canmake Nudy Lipgloss is supposed to contain plumping ingredients and moisturizing ingredients: Sodium hyaluronate, atelocollagen, royal jelly extract, rosemary extract, […]
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 the perfect bright pink lip tint that goes on glossy then adapts to lips as a long-wearing stain. I reviewed […]
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 because its on its way to being discontinued, yet I am sure I saw some on counter recently. They say: […]
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 shiny glittery strands Clare! The items: Ever tried Canmake? Like it? Hate it?
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 are *wow*. Eventually I settled for this Aqualumiere, called Colibri – sources say this was a Limited Edition shade for […]
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 do you think of bloodwork?
Harlow is the first lip gloss I bought from Nars – yep! I hated it with a passion too – so pale, so silvery, so light. Me no like. But I have since bought 2 more tubes – its not one to layer on otherwise you’ll look like a member of Babylon Zoo, but applied lightly its quite a funky nude lip: In case you don’t remember:
I bought Moon Fleet from Nars at Christmas – because could there be a more Christmassy shade? I think not! This is a clear to slightly yellow toned gloss with gold glitter: Its super glittery and works well on lots of other base colours. I like! What do you think of Moon Fleet?
This lip gloss is Boogie Nights from Nars. Its a shimmer deep purple that looks quite dark in the tube: Actually, I’ve fallen in love with it all over again. It looks rather flattering on my lips: Remember Boogie Nights the film?
