Lip Treatments - Maybelline New York - Baby Lips Lip Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I found one of these in Home Bargains for 79p and thought I'd give it a go as i was looking for a new lip balm and had heard good things about this, and it was a lot cheaper than elsewhere. It was in "Holiday Spice" in a yellow tube. I don't know if it is meant to smell and taste of Christmas spices or tropical summer holiday type spices. It does not smell of spice, it …Read more

Lipstick - Boots - No7 Sheer Temptation (ALL)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/21/2015

Red lipsticks don't suit me and beige shades make me look washed out in summer, and I am bored with browny/pink nude shades. So I was looking for a peachy coral shade.

I bought sheer temptation in Coral peach, and it is just what I was looking for. I love this product. The colour is an orangey, peach shade. It is very sheer and buildable. The texture reminds me of the …

Lipstick - Boots - No7 Moisture Drench Lipstick

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/21/2015

Boots currently have an 80th aniversary gift set, which you get when you buy two products in the No 7 makeup range. It includes a Moisture Drench lipstick in the colour of your choice. Unfortunately I didnt really like any of the colours in this range. There seems to be a lot of variation between the colour on the base of the tube and the actual lipstick - what looks like a nice coral or …Read more

Lip Gloss - Maybelline New York - Color Elixir (All Shades)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/31/2014

This really is one of the best lip glosses I have ever used. A few years ago i was given a product from the Dior Addict range which was similar, and like that too. I had a look at the Revlon range when they bought out a similar product, but they had a horrible range of colours.

At £6.99, that is about the limit on what I am prepared to pay for a lipstick. So whe Boots had them on …

Lipstick - Make up Academy - MUA Lipstick in Shade 11

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/25/2013

I was disappointed with this lipstick. I had wanted to try a MUA lipstick as they had good reviews on the internet. My local Superdrug only had a few shades in stock and I chose this one as it looked a nice, browny-pink nude shade in the tube. However, on my lips it looked very dark, and sadly was very ageing. I like shiny, sheer lipsticks and the texture of this was quite matte. But the …Read more

BB Cream - Lacura - BB Cream

Aug/18/2013

I cannot believe how good this product is. I have been wanting to try a BB cream for some time as a lighter alternative to foundation, and have tried may samples of well know brands such as l'Oreal, Olay etc. This is the only one I like, the rest seem to leave your face very shiny, emphasise pores and the colour and texture is never right. The light shade is perfect for my skin and blends …Read more

Fragrances - LUSH - Orange Blossom Perfume

4.0

Apr/04/2013

Very refreshing and authentic scent or neroli, after the initial furniture polish smell wears off. Then it fades to citrus notes. Very pleasant, would definitely buy again. For general comments on this range see my review of Imogen Rose

Fragrances - LUSH - Gorilla Perfume - Imogen Rose

Apr/04/2013

I was very disappointed with this perfume. I tried some of the Lush solid perfumes a few years ago, but really didn't like them. But I thought this would be good for travelling. As I don't have a Lush shop near me I ordered them by mail order. They arrived today in a large, very strong cardboard box filled with those polystyrene worm-like things. Two tiny tubes of solid were …Read more

Lipstick - Unlisted Brand - Poundland - chit chat juicy lipstick

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/08/2013

I fancied trying a Clinique Chubby stick lip balm or the Revlon equivalent but was not prepared to spend £13 on a lipstick. So when I saw these in Poundland I thought I'd give them a try. Also available in other shops in the UK and maybe abroad. They have good reviews on the internet, but i like to form my own opinion of things. I was not expecting much for a pound, but I was very …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Classic Camel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/20/2011

I was bored with pinks and nude shades, but wanted something subtle. This camel shade seems very hard to come by - very few manfacturers make it. The varnish goes on well, it is even and not at all blobby or streaky. But even with 2 coats it looked a bit too thin and translucent. It is now into its second day with no chipping or peeling. I wish cosmetic companies would stop putting glitter …Read more
