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?
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 […]
