Sleek MakeUP True Colour Lipstick in “Vixen” Review

June 3, 2014
sleek-lipstick

I am a terrible person, a terrible person indeed. So terrible in fact, that this lovely lipstick has been sat unopened in my “to review” pile since I bought it about three month’s ago. I was so eager and excited to try the Sleek Lipsticks out and when I finally relented and picked up “Vixen” in a 3 for 2 haul at Superdrug, the least I could have done was give this the time and attention it deserved instead of…

Makeup Revolution – Vamp Lipstick Collection Review

May 27, 2014
revolution-lipsticks

Everyone has been raving about Makeup Revolution and some of their more ‘quirkier’ products. After reading so many great reviews, I couldn’t help but pick a few things out for myself. One of the first things I threw into my virtual basket was the “Vamp Collection” lipsticks, a limited edition set of 3 colours which were £1 each or £2 when you bought the set. I also picked up two others, “Twist” and “Dare” which were only £1. From Left to…

Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Striking

After discovering my love for matte lip finishes with the MUA Matte Lipsticks  I was eager to have a look around and see what other shine-free offerings are about. The Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms have been all over the blogosphere recently, and with all the good reviews I’ve seen it was only a matter of time  before one accidentally fell into my shopping basket. I chose Striking,  a orange-red (of course it was going to be a red!). The balm is…

April 21, 2014

  I actually picked these up a while ago, but they’ve sat in my “to be reviewed” pile for far too long so I thought it was finally time to break them out and give them some wear! I picked up all five shades available (l-R) Peachy Keen, Pouty Pink, Totally Nude, Wild Berry & Scarlet Siren, though I’ve seen that there are two more shades floating around now (which of course I will need to find and add to complete the…

MUA LUXE Velvet Lip Lacquer Review

March 12, 2014
mua-luxe-lip-lacquer-2

I’ve seen a host of reviews on this product all talking about how amazing it is and with the temptation of the shade “Atomic” (you’ve guessed it, a bright red) being too much for me to resist, I ended up buying this a few weeks ago. Usually not being a fan of wand style lip applications, I was sceptical to begin with. I tried it out the day I bought it and slapped it on quickly, whilst running late for…

Avon Colourtrend Lipsticks – Purple Roses, Heartbeat Red & Shimmer.

January 4, 2014
IMG_6850

I’ll admit to being somewhat of a snob when it comes to Avon. I’ve a whole assortment of their standard lipsticks, but till now I’ve avoided the Colortrend range. Seeing as it strikes me as a sort of “things-you-might-buy-for-a-teenager” deal with it’s cheap white packaging and colour selections I’ve just never been tempted…till now! I bought these for one reason. They were -cheap-. I can’t resist a bargain and  a £1.25 lipstick is just too good an offer to turn…

New Avon Lipsticks – Lava Love & Perfect Red

July 22, 2013
Avon lipsticks 2

This month Avon are relaunching their entire make-up line, and from what I’ve seen of it so far it looks -very- exciting! The new lipstick shades were all very tempting, but I settled on Perfect Red and Lava Love. The first thing to note is the new packaging which is much more stylish than the old curved tubes. The Lipsticks are now squared with the same thin silver band, and rather handily have a clear end so you can quite…

Elf haul part 1 – Pants

July 22, 2013

Following Gemma’s haul, I thought it only fair to show off my half of our glorious “accidental” but perfectly justified retail therapy purchases. I jumped at the chance of slinging the mineral primer into the basket, as with the Kabuki (I’ve been lusting after these for so long now). The others I had absolutely no need for (except maybe the brush Shampoo) I just simply wanted them, and will be looking forward to trying them all out! I am especially…

Elf haul part 1 – Gemma

July 17, 2013

  I accidentally talked Amie into ordering a massive Elf haul with me on one of their frequent 50% off days recently and here’s what I chose!     Mineral Infused Face Primer – Clear This has been on my wishlist for a very long time! I love a good primer and I’ve heard nothing but good things about this one! I’m also tempted by the green toned one at some point to deal with my awful red cheeks.  …
