Looking for a lipstick with a satin feel? Then look no further, No7 has an amazing collection of Moisture Drench Lipsticks from gorgeous pink shades to beautiful plums and everything in between.
One of my favourites from this collection is the shade Tawny Rose, a nude pink colour with a lasting finish. The shade is perfect for those out there looking for the perfect nude lipstick which isn’t brown.
As you can see from the image it is a much loved lipstick… What No7 offers is a moisturising lipstick with intense colour and a satin/semi-satin finish.
Of course all products from this brand are hypo-allergenic so perfect for those with sensitive skin.
As ive already mentioned the lipstick has a lasting feel so you don’t have to worry about it coming off easily if you have a drink. It costs £9.95 and is currently on a 3 for 2 promotion.
Have you tried any of the Moisture Drench lipsticks?
Tanya Burr Cosmetics have a great range of products out, the new collection Soft Luxe launched just last week and consists of matte lips and new palettes, todays post is a haul of lip glosses from the previous collection launched in 2015.
Firstly I love the sleek packaging and the gold lids have the signature heart logo on top. Tanya created a great range of colours that apply easily, aren’t sticky and smell like watermelon!
From left to right we have Afternoon Tea, Aphrodite, Champagne Toast and Berry Picking.
The prices usually range from around £5.99 however, more recently you can actually pick some colours up for 99p in Superdrug, im not sure if these are being discounted to make room for the new range or whether they are just on offer.
I absolutely love Berry Picking which leaves a nice stain after the gloss has worn off, I managed to get it for 99p as well as Aphrodite. I love all of the colours, however I find that Champagne Toast works better when applied on top of a lipstick or crayon etc… this is just due to being a sheer gloss.
This year saw Revlon throw out their old mascara collection such as the Grow Luscious mascara in favour of five new mascaras which offer Ultra Volume, Super Length, Volume + Length Magnified, Ultra Definition and the All-In-One.
I picked up three of these beauty’s when they first came out, I purchased the All in One, Ultra Volume and Ultra Definition, whilst I have only used Ultra Volume so far due to having loads of already opened mascara’s I am very pleased with the results.
The mascaras come in three shades: Blackest Black, Blackened Brown and Waterproof Blackest.
The simple packaging is featured on all the mascaras but alter with the lid colours. If you read my review on the No7 Velvet Lash Mascara then you’ll know what volume is key for me when it comes to mascara. I don’t wear false eyelashes so I love mascaras that create big eyelashes.
The large brush boasts the ‘Revlon Lash Plumping Brush’ which has triple grooves to hold the mascara formula. I love this brush it leads to a smooth application without the dreaded clumps which some mascaras can’t avoid.
Admittedly I had never used a Revlon mascara prior this one due to some negative reviews of the old formulas but I am so pleased that they bought out this new range and I cannot wait to try the rest of the range.
Introducing the I Heart Makeup I Heart Chocolate Pink Fizz palette (what a mouthful!). As you may know I Heart Makeup brand is the sister company to Makeup Revolution who I absolutely love so and as a first timer to I Heart Makeup I thought I’d give the Pink Fizz palette a try.
The packaging is quite cute and looks like a half melted chocolate bar and it is said that the I Heart Chocolate palettes are a dupe for the Too Faced Chocolate Bars as well.
There are 16 shades included, 3 matter and 13 shimmery as well as the long eye shadow applicator but personally I prefer brushes. I have found that the shimmery pinks such as Party and Rosy needed quite a bit of build up but if you have a eye primer on hand then you may not have this problem.
I’ve included one swatch photo of the middle row purely because its my preferred colours and im also really bad at photos when it comes to light shades!
I like this palette but I prefer the offerings of Makeup Revolution and will probably stick to them in the future as I cant resist their 32 shade palettes!
Have you tried any of the I Heart Chocolate palettes?
The Nudes by Maybelline is a 12 shade palette and was released before The Blushed Nudes which you may have read on my previous post but if not catch it here (Maybelline: The Blushed Nudes Edition). Just like its partner it comes in sleek packaging with an open window showcasing the shades.
Although I prefer the pink packaging of The Blushed Nudes, I do think that the black stands out for the classic nude shades housed inside. Although the majority of the shades are shimmery there are also a few mattes.
This palette allows you to create great smokey eyes as well as simply keeping your eyes natural if you want to go for bold lips. I love the pigmentation Maybelline offers without the use of eye primers, the colours are easy to blend and last quite well.
Although again it isn’t the greatest photo to go by I have tried to include some swatches so you can gather some idea as to how the shades look, but believe me they are a lot nicer in person!
The price of this palette retails at £9.99 but quite often enough you can find it on offer, especially in Asda! Seems random I know but they tend to have a variety of offers on their stands, currently you can get the Super Stay (Better Skin) foundation for £6 so it might be worth given them a browse.
As you may have seen from a previous post I absolutely love Maybelline so when I saw their latest Nudes palette I simply had to get it. This palette is different to your everyday nudes collection you may have, its ‘blushed’ so comes in a great array of pinks and peaches rather than your normal brown/bronze shades.
One of the things I love about this product is its girly packaging, I love the metallic pink case its housed in, the other Nudes palette they have comes in your standard black packaging.
You get 12 gorgeous shades which are all shimmery, this is my favourite palette at the moment and costs only £9.99. I don’t use eye primers but have found that these eye shadows last brilliantly throughout the day and they also blend well together.
I don’t use the brush which is provided as I prefer to use a No7 eye brush I received in a free gift promotion they had at Christmas….
I’ve tried my best to swatch these for you, apologies if the quality isn’t the best I’ve never actually done it before and only have access to an Iphone camera. The first shade I did swatch is rather pale so you may not notice it.
As you can see there’s some lovely shades ranging from light to dark, I particularly love the peachy bronze shades and the pale pinks. I haven’t actually used all of the shades myself so I cant wait to see what different looks come out of them.
The palette is great for the daytime and with different shades to mix and match you cant really go wrong.
For me this set is definitely a stand out product and teamed with their Lash Sensational Mascara makes the perfect eye look.
Today’s post is about a product that every make-up user needs, a good brush cleaner. It’s really important to clean brushes in order to ensure there’s no bacteria or dust in the bristles because of course this would cause you to have skin problems and possible breakouts.
The amazing product that’s great for cleaning brushes is by Superdrug’s own brand B. The bottle comes with a pump spray and you only need to use 2-3 sprays a time depending on how much product is on the bristles.
It’s quick an easy to use and all you need to do is rub your brushes on some tissue to remove the makeup. The cleanser works both on synthetic and natural bristles, I was sceptical to begin with having recently purchased Real Technique brushes for the first time and I didn’t want to ruin them but the product works perfect on them.
For as little as £4.99 for the single bottle (125ml) and £4.00 for the bottle and muslin cloth (bizarre deal I know) you can clean your brushes without worry of ruining them.
