A clear gloss, these days is hard to find

I want to wear some glitter on my eyes tomorrow so decided to find some clear lip gloss to use as a sticky base – a cheap one of course. Boy has it been a challenge. I went to Superdrug, and checked out the cheaper brands in the scale – Collection 2000, NYC, 2True etc. They all had clear lip glosses but I noticed most of them are ‘lip plumping’ following the trend for pumped […]

Lip Fusion

Lip Fusion is one of those products that completely went over my head as soon as I read it was a lip plumper. I have naturally full lips anyway and have once tried DuWop’s Lip Venom, which felt like boric acid. Nevertheless, I heard that Lip Fusion is very moisturising – what the hell, I found it for £15 (normally £26) so I gave it a go. The shade is SUN: They say: Micro-Injected Collagen […]

Tarte: Purse your lips set

I paid way too much for this damn kit from eBay: They say: What it does: Tarte Purse Your Lips Limited-Edition Lipgloss Clutch is perfect for parties and celebrations—with so many glosses to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect match for any occasion. The brand-new, limited-edition shades are infused with the Tarte t5 super fruit complex™, which is a proprietary blend of the five most active superfruits: goji, acai, maracuja, acerola, and pomegranate.

Gothtastic: YSL Gloss Pur Black

You know you are about to buy something, and all the time you’re thinking, no, don’t buy this, its a really bad idea. But you buy it anyway? That’s how I felt when I shelled out £17.32 (or some other ridiculous figure – our VAT/TAX rate has been cut from 17.5% to 15% and most retailers have been forwarding the discount to shoppers but clearly haven’t had time to make it a nice round figure) […]

Kat Von D Lighting for Lips Kit

I mentioned that I had got Kat Von D’s lighting for lips set so decided to open the box and have a quick play. In the kit are mini sized lip glosses, packed with glitter: Gut reaction? These are very pretty and easy to wear because they are sheer – in fact I’m almost a bit dissapointed that they are so sheer that the colour is barely noticable – the glitter is the focus here. […]

Dior Pink Essence 351 Creme de Gloss Xmas LE!

dscn9831-s.jpg

I have talked about Dior’s Creme De Gloss a few times, here and here. I know some of you ladies just dig it, but I’m not a fan. Nice texture but lifeless colours and dull lips on me. I tried the fig and beige previously and gave them both away. Cue Pink Essence a LE colour from the Night Collection from Dior Xmas 08. I just happened to swatch this whilst buying the glitter gloss. […]

Dior Creme De Gloss in Pink Essence (Rose De Essence)

I didn’t love Dior’s Creme De Gloss at all when it was first released.  Yes it is a nice texture, but I hated how dull it looked on the lips and I hated the colour selection; I owned Beige and Fig which I just found so dull dull dull. So back at the Dior counter, the girl tells me that the Creme De Gloss (one in a nude beige, one was Pink Essence) is LE.  […]

NYX Lipgloss and Lipstick Haul

dscn9801-s.jpg

I know you US ladies have NYX all over the place but it’s unavailble in the UK. It’s a shame because it looks like such a cheap but cheerful brand, lots of colour choices and of a good standard. I can’t think of anything in the UK like that, that isn’t too expensive to be cheap or has some horrid packaging. There is a seller on eBay called mssskel who has a lot of NYX […]
