IMG_7016

A stunning multi-use lipstick that is perfect for summer!

I was very lucky to receive this product from Nail’s Inc for me to review for my blog – Please note I received this complimentary!

For this summer Nail’s Inc has released a beautiful collection of lipsticks, glosses, nail varnishes and face masks. Check out their new collection here! I decided to try out one of their new Shine A Light On Me lipstick in the shade Basically Extra, as the rosey pink of the lipstick and gold holographic pigment stood out to me.

The thing I loved about this lipstick has build-able coverage, so its perfect to apply as a sheer balm with a light application or as a powerful punch with layers – making it completely custom to your style and look. The lipstick is balm-esque which doesn’t dry your lips out but instead keeps them hydrated after application, lasting a long while. Due to this easy glide formula it is easy to use for a multitude of other ways – I also used it as a highlighter as its sparkly enough to add some goddess glow which looks sun kissed.

You can see my swatches below showing what it looks like with hard pressure, light pressure and then dabbed out for use as a highlighter.

Bottom Line: A stunning, perfect for summer lip stick that adds a subtle glow to your lips for a fresh, dewy look.

E.l.f. Cosmetics – Eyes, Lips, Face – ExTRA Lip Gloss – Brian & Brett

IMG_5117

Highly pigmented lip gloss, which offers a matte lip coverage in a gloss!

I was actually blown away by these lip glosses – I have used other E.l.f. cosmetics products and I’m always surprised at the quality considering their budget friendly prices – and it was the same for these lipsticks!

These lip glosses are creamy, easy to apply, non sticky and don’t make you feel tacky whilst wearing them. They have a good formula which makes them easy and accurate to apply – I hate it when gloss is so runny it’s hard to put on and drips off like a Vladamua look.

These lip glosses come in a variety of colours and it’s easy to find one to suit your tone and style!

Bottom Line: They glide on easily, and are non sticky, but due to the high pigmentation they’re not suitable for lip-toppers but are a perfect alternative to lipsticks!

Price: £3.50 at e.l.f. Cosmetics.

Jelly Pong Pong – Play Paint – Velvety Lip/Cheek Cream

IMG_4563

A creamy, long wear tint that lasts a long time!

I haven’t heard much about this brand before, but I discovered them on Instagram and found their packaging adorable, so I decided to give their Play Paint a go!

They’ve packaged this multi-purpose cream as a paint tube, which also makes it easy to dispense and use. This cream is made with Pumpkin Seed Oil to help rejuvenate damaged skin and delicious Rhubarb extract to help further protect skin from moisture loss throughout the day.

This cream delivers long lasting colour without drying out, and blends out beautifully with the warmth of my finger tips to create a subtle blush – something which is often hard to find with cream products . By applying the cream colour with a lip brush I’ve been able to use it as a stunning lip stain which lasted for a good few hours even with drinking and eating.

I’ve also found this handy as a base colour for pink hued eyeshadow styles as the long wearing property of this cream colour is amazing for on the eyelids and prevents colour creasing.

Bottom Line: A stunning, multipurpose colour paint that blends really well!

Price: £9.00 at Jelly Pong Pong

Read My Lips – Pepsi Lip Balm – PR

IMG_4449

A novelty lip balm that is adorably cute!

I was very lucky to receive this product from Read My Lips for me to review for my followers – Please note I received this complimentary!

This is such a cute novelty lip balm, but I’m afraid that’s all this will be! This lip balm is more sticky than nourishing, and doesn’t smell or taste that much of Pepsi unlike the Lip Smackers I used to have.

IMG_4450

The lip balm is tacky and feels heavy as it sits on my lips, and the application is a bit messy due to the large shape. It wears off relatively fast, and you have to reapply it often – if that is you can stand the sticky feeling.

Bottom Line: A disappointing balm for a Pepsi fan.

Price: £2.00 at Primark
