Lips of the Day: Shiseido Shimmering Rouge Lipstick in PK407 Stiletto

Shiseido-Spring_Summer-2011-Makeup-lipstick-Collection.jpg

Needless to say, with all the make up that I see and play with there’s not much on your average make up counter that gets me excited, but when I saw the new Shiseido spring collection, I was just coo-ing (see the colours at the end of the post!). Alas I was dragged away from the counter by Mr C, something about ‘having too many lipsticks’. Amazingly enough, he presented me one evening with the […]

Lips of the Day: Kitten Vixen Lip Gloss in Ravishing Ruby

Kitten-Vixen-Ravishing-Ruby-.jpg

You can never have enough lip products – honest! Today’s LOTD is from Kitten Vixen; this gloss is vegan certified, cruelty free, free from parabens and free from petrolatum – good! Now, this only comes in three shades, Peach Provocateur, Ravishing Ruby and Tickled Pink. Each shade is supposed to flatter a certain colouring so I was sent Ravishing Ruby for my medium skintone and dark hair. It looks like jam:

Lips of the Day: Lavshuca Jewelry Lip WN-1 Wine

Lavshuca-Jewelry-Lip-WN-1-.jpg

There are many things Lavshuca do well, but lip products isn’t really one of them (I think). Nevertheless, I decided to order one of their mini Jewelry Lipsticks in WN-1, a wine shade (There are two versions of this lipstick, Sheer in a pink tube – rubbish, Color in a purple tube – better and pigmented). These lipsticks are DINKY. TINY. The lipstick is SMALL and feels a bit unstable which is annoying: I guess […]

Lips of the Day: Lancome Juicy Pop Ultra Brilliant Lip Gloss in Hot Pink

Lancome-Juicy-Pop-Electric-Pink.jpg

Sometimes I scour eBay for limited edition items I didn’t get round to buying the first time round. I picked up this Lancome Juicy Pop Lip Gloss a while ago. Do you remember when Lancome Juicy Tubes were the HOTTEST make up item out there? I remember lusting after one so badly and eventually I was gifted a glossy brown that smelt a bit like cola. Since then my interest in Juicy Tubes has all […]

Lips of the Day: Hard Candy Painted Lady Lip Colour in Knock Out Pink

**I’ve decided it’s a lip swatch and review kinda day! That, and it’s 4.10am at the time of writing and pretty lip swatches is all I can think of!** Lovely Kuri included this lipstick from Painted lady (shade 198 Knock Out) in a package she sent me months ago. I’ve heard of Hard Candy, of course, but I’ve never seen the Painted Lady range before (research shows it’s sold at Walmart for ladies who are […]

LOTD: Chanel Levres Scintillantes Brilliant Extreme Glossimer in 146 Coral Lover Review

Chanel-Coral-Love-Liveres-Brilliant-Extreme.jpg

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 […]

Ewww Brown Lipstick: Korres Mango Butter Lipstick SPF15 in Soft Brown

Korres-Natural-Products-Mango-Butter-Lipstick-.jpg

So after the beautiful Kirstie over at Beaut.ie tried out a Revlon lipstick in Mink…a warm brown lipstick, I decided I should also wade in and give this dreaded hue a go. The fact is I don’t like brown toned anything, unless it’s a pair of shoes or a handbag, and even then we’re talking Tan, not Brown. Oh chocolate. I like chocolate. And coffee. Come to think of it my first ever lipstick was […]

Lips of the Day: NYX Round Lip Gloss in Sorbet, a sweet pink

NYX-Lip-Gloss-Sorbet-Pink.jpg

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 […]
