Lip Products// Latest Products & Review
Working near a Boots is never good for a Beauty Freak like myself. The call of make up and cosmetics is far to strong for me to resist, some lunchtimes, going to have a little mooch round.
Toady was one of the weak willed days and I ended up picking up three gorgeous lip products whilst I was there.
L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Splash - Shade 'Princess'
There has been a lot of hype on Beauty Blogs about these Lip glosses, so I was eager to try them out and see for myself what they are like.
Firstly, I absolutely love the packaging, I think it looks so expensive and chic. The aplicator on these products is also really nice as it is a heart shaped wand, meaning you can cover your lip in one swish, whilst also being able to go back with the pointed end for a more precise application in the corners. I was a little disappointed by the colour selection, there was maybe 2 others besides this one that I liked.
When I first swatched this on my hand it look quire sheer, however after 2 coats, as you can see by the picture above, it builds up to a beautiful bright Coral Orange colour.
This colour is soo up my street, it is bright. but it is also really wearable for the day time which I think is great.
The greatest thing about this product, however, is the staying power! Once applied, this Lip Gloss is going no where fast. To put it into perspective, I swatched this on my hand at 1PM and now, at 8:30 PM it is still there! The glossy finish has long gone, but there is still a definite stain. Unlike other stains of this strength though, it is not in the least bit drying.
To me this product is amazing, amazing, amaaazing value for money, from its sleek packaging, to the colour, to the phenomenal staying power, this product ticks all the boxes.It is priced at £7.99 at Boots.
Bourjois is quickly become of one my go-to Drug Store/High Street beauty brand. Recently it is just churning out great product, after great product.
One of the reasons I noticed this particular Lip Stick was because of the unique packaging. The base of the Lip Stick is a swatch of the colour inside, make it great for finding the colour you want when you're in a rush to get ready. The slick, black, bullet container is also very expensive looking.
In the Rough Edition collection there are 17 different shades, ranging from a true Red shade to neutral Browns, meaning you are guaranteed to find a colour that will suit you.
The consistency of this Lip Stick is very creamy and smooth, it glides on so easily- it almost melts onto the lips, it really is lovely to apply. For just a smooth, moisture rich product I though the bright Fuchsia colour might apply rather sheer. How wrong I was! This Lip Stick is so pigment and the colour so true to the swatch on the base. The gorgeous bright pink came out just how I had hoped.
The finish to the Rouge Edition Lipsticks is subtly shiny, and nice middle ground between matte and glossy, which I love! The colour stayed put for a really long while, and it faded nicely into a 'my lips but better' tint after a few hours, unlike some Lipsticks which patch off horribly.
Like the L'Oreal Glam Shine Splash , this product was £7.99, which I think is super great value for money. Because of the wide range of lovely colours i suggest everyone takes a look at these as your sure to find something amazing!
For a long time I have loved the Soap & Glory body care range. Which is why I was so confused when i realised this is my first purchase from their Cosmetics line.
Like the body care range, all the Cosmetics are beautifully packaged. I chose this 'Gloss Stick' for 2 reasons - 1) I really fell for the the colour and..
2) THE SMELL.. I repeat.. THE SMELL
Good grief, this thing smells so darn nice! It is a Vanilla scent which is just so yummy. Another thing i liked about this is the fact that it is a Twist-up stick, not one you have to sharpen, I don't know about anyone else but I struggle like an up-turned Tortoise trying to sharpen these things such as this.
The colour pay-off, I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with, although after a few coats you do get a nice, sheer yet bright pink colour. Although the colour may not be very strong on these, the staying power is great! Especially for a gloss/balm product. A good 3 hours after first apply it, it was still very much there and still smelly amazing.
If you are into natural sheer finishes, this is definitely the one for you. Also, because of the handy pen applicator, it is great for an on-the-go splash of colour, as they are so quick the apply- even with out a mirror.
I paid £8.00 for this Gloss Stick which I think is really awesome value as I think, because of how long each application stays on, it will last a long long time.
