My Little Pony Lovely Lip Balms – Fruity Lip Balm & Strawberry Lip Balm

Hi there! Today’s post is about the My Little Pony Lovely Lip Balms that I found at Primark. This lip balm duo pack is £1.50, and it contains a fruity lip balm and a strawberry lip balm.

Before I get to the actual review, let me tell you a little about the manufacturer of these lip balms… Kokomo Studio is an Oxfordshire-based company. They manufacture toiletries for lots of different brands, i.e. Hasbro, Disney, Cartoon Network, Tokidoki and many more! I’ve never heard of Kokomo Studio before, but I’m impressed that they’re working with some of the big brands. Thumbs up!

Now onto the review! These two lip balms are very nice and I really enjoy using them. The juicy melon-flavoured Fruity Lip Balm is simply awesome. It tastes like heaven! It’s definitely my new favourite lip balm flavour. The Strawberry Lip Balm tastes of fresh strawberries. The flavour is rather subtle, but that’s perfectly fine.

I think these two lip balms are very nice and I’m even thinking about stocking up! 🙂 Have you tried these lip balms? If so, how do / did you like them? Or will you pick them up the next time you swing by Primark? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

100% Kawaii – Claire’s Meringue Flavoured Lip Balm

Hi there! Today’s short post is about a lip balm I picked up for £1 – it’s Claire’s Meringue Flavoured Lip Balm. I didn’t really need another lip balm, but I couldn’t resist the insanely cute packaging. I mean, look at it! Now let me tell you if this lip balm is any good…

This lip balm is bright pink in colour. But fortunately it only leaves a smidgen of colour on my lips. I think this lip balm is convenient to use because it’s one of those super-soft lip balms. Very nice! However, the flavour isn’t a meringue flavour, but a random sweet and fruity flavour.

I like this lip balm! It’s really good, I enjoy using it, and those cute meringue faces never fail to put a smile on my face. I have a few more cute Claire’s lip balms, and I’ll try to review them asap. 🙂

The Best 50p I Ever Spent – Manhattan Tasty Lips Lipgloss American Grapefruit

Hi there! Today’s post is a short one. And it’s about this clear Manhattan Tasty Lips Lipgloss with American Grapefruit flavour. This lipgloss was part of a £1 Manhattan Cosmetics duo pack (lipgloss + eyeshadow duo) at Bargain Buys!

I already lost the eyeshadow duo – well, it’s somewhere in my stash – I just have no idea where it could be. 🙂 But let’s focus on the lipgloss…

I think this lipgloss is fantastic! The gloss is clear, there’s no sparkle (Yay!), it’s very hydrating but it doesn’t feel too sticky. And the grapefruit flavour is… the ultimate yummy grapefruit flavour! It’s perfect. It’s dreamy. I love it! I will have to go back to Bargain Buys to see if I can find more. Wish me luck, OK? 🙂

Have you tried this lipgloss? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner 038 Allure

Hi there! If you’ve read yesterday’s post, you know that there are quite a few beauty products that I have several back-ups of. So I thought it would be very fitting to make today’s post about one of these products. 😀 Now meet Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner 038 Allure.
rimmel-exaggerate-lipliner-038-allure
Allure is one of my favourite lipliners. It’s a true full-colour lipliner that doubles up as a (matte) nude lipstick. This lipliner is on the softer side, so it’s quick and easy to apply. However, lipliners can be drying, so I always use a bit of lip balm (for a demi-matte look) or lip gloss (for a slightly glossy look – like in the picture above) before I apply any lipliner.

Whilst the lip balm (or gloss) underneath the lipliner will lose its sheen within a few hours, the colour (= the actual lipliner) will stay put all day. Sure, if I eat fatty and greasy foods for lunch, the lipliner will suffer. However, when I’m at work I don’t eat junk food for lunch, so I’m pretty safe! 🙂

What I actually wanted to say is… I think this lipliner is great. Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liners are available in several colours. This shade, 038 Allure, seems to have been discontinued. However, I just had a look at Rimmel’s web site, and it appears they’re still doing two brownish nude shades.

What do you think of using lipliners instead of lipsticks? Feel free to let me know. And thanks for reading! 🙂

100% Cruelty-Free & The Ultimate £1 Stocking Filler – Superdrug Flutter Lip Balm

Hi there! Today’s short post is about this cute Superdrug Flutter Lip Balm which I bought a few weeks ago. I love cats. And I love lip balms, so I was happy to pick up a few of these cute lip balms. But fear not, I’m not stock-piling them. I intend to give most of them away. 🙂

So how’s the lip balm? I love it! It has a pleasant berry and sugar flavour. And it’s super soft and it just glides on. It’s the same lip balm formula that Superdrug used for their cute Animal Mad lip balms last year!

Yes, I would definitely recommend this lip balm. And the cute kitten in a teacup makes me smile whenever I look at it. 🙂 The Flutter brand is exclusive to Superdrug. This Flutter lip balm is £1 only. And it carries the Leaping Bunny logo, so it’s 100% cruelty-free! If you’re more of a a dog person, Superdrug does the same lip balm with a puppy image on the packaging and on the lip balm bullet.

Burt’s Bees Calla Lily Tinted Lip Balm

Hi there! Today’s post is about my new Burt’s Bees Calla Lily Tinted Lip Balm which I found at my local Poundland a few days ago. As they only had one shade, I only picked up one lip balm. But that’s not really a bad thing because I have too many lip balms and glosses anyway. 🙂

So whilst I’m drowning in lip balms (well, almost), I couldn’t resist the urge to try this product right away. And now let me tell you if it’s any good.
burts-bees-calla-lily-lip-balm
First of all, I was surprised by the colour of the lip balm. I thought calla lilies were white(ish)? But nevermind, I’d rather use a red-tinted lip balm than a white(ish)-tinted one.

And how’s the lip balm? I think it’s very nice. The formula is lovely, the lip balm just glides on – but it doesn’t feel sticky. Great! I also like the subtle and natural colour which doesn’t settle in the fine lines of my lips. So yes, I’d recommend this lip balm, and I’ll go back to Poundland to stock up (if they have any lip balms left…). 🙂

The Perfect Stocking Fillers For £1 – Superdrug Sweet Snuggles Lip Balms and Hands & Nails Sets

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Lip Balm Set and Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Hand & Nail Set. I bought these two sets last year – for £1 each. And since Superdrug is now selling two almost identical sets (the design is a little different – but everything else is the same), I thought I’d tell you if they’re any good.
SD Sweet Snuggles Hand Nail Set2
Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Lip Balm Set consists of 3 lip balms. They’re vanilla-flavoured and they’re very nourishing. I also love the cute design – very fitting for the colder season! This year Superdrug is selling essentially the same lip balm set (as I said before, they chose a new design, but the name and the product are basically still the same) – and it’s available for £1. Considering the good quality of these lip balms, the set is a total steal!

Superdrug’s Sweet Snuggles Hand & Nail Set consists of a small 30ml hand lotion and a small emery board (= the perfect size for every cosmetic bag). I think the hand lotion is very nice. It’s wonderfully moisturising, but it’s not sticky at all. And it makes my hands feel so soft! I also like the delicious and sweet vanilla scent (it reminds me of Boots’ vanilla body butter). The emery board is nothing special – it does its job – like every other emery board. At the moment Superdrug does a near identical set (the emery board is the same, but this year’s hand lotion features a penguin image) wich is £1 only.

I would definitely recommend these little sets. They’re cute, they’re great stocking fillers, and the products are actually useful! I haven’t seen the new sets in store yet (online only), so I’m not sure about whether or not they carry the Leaping Bunny logo. My guess is that they do because last year’s sets were BUAV-approved, and they did carry the Leaping Bunny logo – and Superdrug’s own brand products are generally certified cruelty-free.
