Hershey’s and Pepsi Flavoured Lotta Love Lip Balms

October 28, 2014
Hersheys Lip Balms 1

I’m an avid collector of flavoured lip-balms, I think it’s because it reminds me of being a pre-teen and spending my hard earned pocket money on the little tubs from The Body Shop, so when I saw this set of four Hersheys balms for only £2.99 in my local B&M  I snapped it up right away! I thought at first they were import Lipsmackers, but they are made by a company called Lotta Luv who actually license lip balms from quite a few…

Avon Ultra Colour Bold and Soft Matte Lipstick Review

September 1, 2014
ultrabold-lipsticks

  I bought these lipsticks on a whim a few campaigns ago. The Ultra Colour Bold lipstick range is pretty new to Avon and I paid £10 for 5 lipsticks out of my demo book before they were launched to customers. I don’t know why I felt that I needed another 5 lipsticks, but I was completely drawn to the bright and bold pinks that were on offer and thus a new era of Pants (the type that now wears…

theBalm Rockstar Face Palette Balm Jovi Review

July 16, 2014
thebalm-rockstar

For those of you unacustomed to the ways of Birchbox, when you complete the monthly surveys on the products you receive in your box you are awarded shiny points. These can then be used to purchase things from the Birchbox shop. My last points purchase was theBalm concealer just after christmas, so when I had an e-mail with 20% off their online shop because I’d been subscribed for a year, I instantly logged in to my account to see how…

elf Mineral Lipsticks Review

July 2, 2014
elf-lipsticks

I picked up three of the Mineral Lipsticks from the elf clearance recently, and one of the first things that struck me, was how sexy the packaging was! I am very keen on elf packaging as a whole, especially their Studio line which is often encased in beautifully curved black casings. These lipsticks were no exception and look absolutely stunning (and that’s before I’d even taken the lids off). I have a fair few elf lipsticks already but I’ve never…

W7 Rock ‘n’ Roll Eye Shadow Review

June 23, 2014
w7-shadow

  These were picked up from Poundland on my recent “Accidental May Haul”. I’m a sucker for green and blue shadows, as they really suit my hazel eye colour. A quick swatch in the shop and I knew that these were coming home with me. Sage is actually more of a gold infused green, which is actually Okay with me, since I like to add a bit of sparkle when I’m wearing my hilarious gold Manowar t-shirt. Envy is a…

Glossybox June 2014 Review

June 16, 2014
glossybox-june-14

This is the last of my beauty boxes to arrive this month, and Gem and I have been waiting on tenterhooks after a few spoilers were going around, but now the wait is over and I can finally see what is in my Glossybox! The first thing I noticed, is that mine was prepared a little more shoddily than the usually impeccable presentation. My Glossybox (GB)  sticker looked as though it had already been peeled off, and everything was just…

Elf Studio Cream Blush Review

June 10, 2014
cream-blush

I’ve really wanted to try the elf studio Cream Blush pots for ages, so when they were in their recent clearance sale I was overjoyed! I picked out “flirt” which is bright pink and “tease” which is more of a peach/russet colour. When I pulled these out of their boxes, the first thing I noticed was how big the pots were. They are literally the size of my palm and packed with a lot of product. The consistency was quite…

Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Review

June 9, 2014
makeup-revolution-redemption-palette

On my first Makeup Revolution purchase, I picked up the Redemption Matte Brights Palette. I have no idea why I was drawn to these bright and crazy colours, but I couldn’t help myself. If you are unfamiliar with the brand, they have hit the beauty world by storm and have rivaled the firm affordable favourite MUA with their cheap yet amazing palettes and fab albeit eccentric lip colours to name a few. I had high hopes for the palette after…

Elf Clearance Haul Part 2

June 7, 2014
elf-haul-1

  It happened again – well actually no, this happened pre “accidental shopping haul” which is why I felt so guilty about going shopping, knowing that I had already ordered a box of goodies from elf. For those that didn’t know, one of their latest deals was a free “Mystery Collection” (worth £15) when you spent £20 in the clearance section, as well as free p&p. What actually happened, is Gemma asked me whether or not she should go ahead…
