Claire’s Candy Cane Lip Balm, Claire’s Christmas Pudding Lip Balm, Manhattan Colour Loop Lipgloss 52S Soft Nude

Hi there! Today’s post is about a number of products. Since the reviews are rather short, I thought I’d do one post for all of them. And here they are…

Product number 1 is Claire’s Candy Cane Lip Balm which I picked up when it was on sale. I believe it was £1. I’ve given this lip balm a try, and I don’t like it at all. It has a slight red tint. Whilst this isn’t a deal-breaker, the boring red tea flavour is! I can’t bring myself to use it. I’ve binned it.

Claire’s Christmas Pudding Lip Balm is alright. It has a light brown tint, and it actually tastes like Christmas pudding. It’s not my favourite lip balm, but it’s definitely a decent one! I believe I paid £1 for it.

And here’s my favourite of the bunch – Manhattan Colour Loop Lipgloss 52S Soft Nude. I’ve already gone through one of these amazing lipglosses (yes, the same shade), and I just had to repurchase it! I also bought 2 other colours, but this one’s perfect for me. I love the sheer tint, and the flavour is sweet and lovely. I paid £1 for this lipgloss (Poundland).

Have you tried these products? Would you like to try them? Feel free to comment, and thanks for stopping by!

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. 🙂

Paperchase Blackcurrant, Strawberry and Cherry Lip Balms

Paperchase Lip Balms 1Hi there! Just a another quick lip balm review today. I bought these cute lip balms at Paperchase. I simply couldn’t resist these cute owls!

And hey, it’s a set of three lip balms for half price – so why fight the urge to buy?

I was pleased with these balms’ moisturising properties, but I did not like their flavours at all. I found the flavour of the Blackcurrant lip balm to be tolerable, but the Cherry and Strawberry lip balms tasted rather plasticky and not very fruity.

What’s the vedict? I wouldn’t buy them again. Saying this, the lip balms were a limited edition so they’re unavailable for purchase now. But to end this post on a positive note: Paperchase has done much better lip balms since!
