100% Cruelty-Free -Pusheen Strawberry Sweetness & Vanilla Goodness Lip Balms

Hi there! Today’s post is about Pusheen‘s Strawberry Sweetness and Vanilla Goodness Lip Balms. I picked these up for half price (£3) on Boxing Day (at M&S). I’ve been using these lip balms for quite some time now, so it’s time for a review!

Pusheen Strawberry Sweetness is really nice. I’m not the biggest fan of strawberry flavours (or scents) in cosmetics, but this one is really well done. It’s sweet and fruity, but it’s not sickly sweet or overly ripe. And I’m very happy with its hydrating qualities!

Pusheen Vanilla Goodness is simply awesome! It’s super hydrating – just like the strawberry lip balm. And the vanilla flavour is sensational. It smells and tastes like vanilla cake batter. I love it!

I’m very happy with these lip balms. They look cute, they taste great, and they do a great job! What’s not to love? I hope M&S will do a similar lip balm set this Christmas. Fingers crossed!

Maybelline Color Sensational Luscious Lipgloss 130 Crushed Candy & 160 Treat Me Sweet

Hi there! I haven’t reviewed any lip products in ages, so I thought I could (or should) do a post about 2 Maybelline Color Sensational lipglosses. The shades / flavours are 130 Crushed Candy and 160 Treat Me Sweet.

Crushed Candy is a pale pink gloss, Treat Me Sweet is a pale peach gloss. Both glosses contain micro shimmer particles which, fortunately, aren’t visible on the lips. Having said that, these two glosses are indeed super glossy on the lips!

Onto the flavours! Crushed Candy is peppermint-flavoured. It’s actually quite nice. And Treat Me Sweet is… sensational! The flavour is the loveliest sweet flavour I could imagine. I can’t describe it, but it has everything. If I ever find any kind of food stuff that tastes like this lipgloss, I’ll be in trouble!

I believe these lipglosses have been discontinued – but you can still find them at Poundland, Poundworld (which is where I bought them) and the likes.

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. 🙂

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.

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…). 🙂

Miss Sporty Dr Balm Gossip Kiss SOS

Hi there! A friend of mine gave me two Miss Sporty lip balms as a present the other day. And today I’m letting you know what I think of this Miss Sporty Dr Balm Gossip Kiss SOS lip balm. First of all, this lip balm has a slight orange tint and it smells of melons. So far, so good.

In regards to its moisturising qualities, I think this lip balm does a fairly decent job. It glides on smoothly and it feels nourishing without being too sticky. I’m currently using this lip balm as a base for my lipliner which works fine. I’m quite happy with this lip balm and I’ll definitely use it up.

In regards to the other Miss Sporty lip balm, I forgot the exact name, but it was a beige one and it smelled like a mix of cheese and gym socks. I chucked it out. Apparently it was supposed to be honey-flavoured, but it smelled really rank.

Anyway, if you’d like to try any of the Miss Sporty Dr Balm lip balms, you’d have to look for them online because they seem to have been discontinued.

Cute Gift Idea: Superdrug Animal Mad Lip Balms

Hi there! I was looking at the drugstores’ Christmas offerings the other day and couldn’t resist buying a few bits for myself. One of the things I had to have was this super cute Superdrug Animal Mad Lip Balm set. Seriously, how cute is this set?! By the way, a quick look at the back of the packaging revealed that these lip balms carry the Leaping Bunny logo; this means they’re cruelty-free!

As this set was £3 only, I didn’t expect too much. However, I’m really pleased with these berry-flavoured lip balms. They’re super soft and they’ll be perfect for the winter months ahead. I think I’ll be buying another set for my nine-year old niece – I’m sure she’ll love these super cute lip balms. 🙂
