Makeup Revolution London Lip Hug Love Can Set You Free, Essence XXXL Longlasting Lipgloss 2 Coral Delight, W7 Silky Eyes Bare It All

Hi there! Today’s post is about a number of products I’m using at the moment. Initially I wanted to do individual reviews, but then I decided to do 1 post. 😎 Alrighty, let’s take a closer look at the goodies…

The first item is one of the most wonderful lipsticks I’ve ever had – Makeup Revolution London Lip Hug Love Can Set You Free. Oh! My! God! This lipstick has the most amazing colour – it’s a nude shade that’s both rosey and brownish. I can’t get enough of this beautiful and timeless lip colour! I also love the formula – I think the name “Lip Hug” fits perfectly. 11 STARS!

Up next is this Essence XXXL Longlasting Lipgloss. The shade is 2 Coral Delight. This lipgloss promises a longlasting mirror shine look – and it delivers! I don’t normally go for coral lip colours, but this gloss was on sale for £1, so I bought it (+another shade). I enjoy using this lipgloss (i’s almost used up) because I like the sweet vanilla flavour, and the shimmery sheer coral shade suits me surprisingly well!

Item number 3 is this W7 Silky Eyes Bare It All eyeshadow palette which I started to use in early August. I’ve used this eye palette almost every day, and I’m very happy with it!

As you can see in the swatch below, the brown shade in the top right corner is shimmery, and the brown shade in the top left corner is matte. I like them both, but the brown shimmer is my favourite. I use it most days, and I apply it all over my lid. It goes very well with my green eyes.

The lighter shades are pretty much highlighter shades, and I use them as inner corner highlights. I love the light sand shade which blends beautifully into the brown eyeshadows, and the pale pink looks nice too. I’m not too keen on the cream shade though – I’ve never liked white-to-cream frosty shimmer shades. I never knew what to do with them because they don’t suit me.

Anyhoo… I do like W7’s Bare It All palette! And I can see myself finishing 3 of the 5 pans (shimmery brown, matte brown, sand). It won’t happen any time soon, though!

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

Yves Rocher Framboise Nourishing Lip Balm, Manhattan Lipjelly 59N, MUA MakeUp Academy Sheer Finish Lipgloss Perk Me Up

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 lip products – Yves Rocher Framboise Nourishing Lip Balm, Manhattan Lipjelly 59N and MUA MakeUp Academy Sheer Finish Lipgloss Perk Me Up.

Yves Rocher Framboise Nourishing Lip Balm is one of the better lip balms I’ve used over the past few years. I just finished it, but I’m happy to report that It made my lips feel hydrated. The raspberry flavour is 100% spot on! This lip balm is tinted; the colour of the lip balm matches the colour of the raspberry on the front. I enjoyed using this one!

Manhattan Lipjelly 59N is my favourite gloss-balm type of lip product at the moment. I picked it up as part of a nail polish + lip duo for £1 at Poundland, so I didn’t expect much from it. But guess what, this lip jelly is amazing! It tastes like… paradise (!), it hydrates my lips perfectly, and the sheer tint is super gorgeous. I love it!

MUA MakeUp Academy Sheer Finish Lipgloss Perk Me Up is another lip product I’m enjoying very much. This gloss is very nourishing, and it has a beautiful sheer brownish tint. I also love the classic lipstick flavour! The best bit – I paid 50p for this one (bargain bin).

I’m happy with the lip products I’m using at the moment. I do have a few more in my rota, and I will do another post about the other products soon!

Have you tried any of these products? Would you like to try them? Which lip products are you loving at the moment? Please feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! ☺️

Miss Sporty Lipliners – 007 Slow, 013 Coconut, 014 Earth

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 Miss Sporty lipliners that I picked up recently (for £1 each) – the shades are (from top to bottom) 007 Slow, 013 Coconut, and 014 Earth. I haven’t seen Miss Sporty products at Boots or Superdrug for a while. I think it’s safe to say the brand will disappear once and for all as soon as the end-of-line discount stores will have sold their stock.

However, since Poundland (this is where I bought these lipliners) and other brick-and-mortar and online stores are still selling Miss Sporty products, I thought I’d do a quick review in case someone’s wondering whether they’re worth picking up. 😊

I’ve been using these lipliners for a few weeks now, and I think they’re really nice. These lipliners are highly pigmented, they’re soft, and they can even be worn as matte lipsticks! I’ve also noticed they look great with gloss on top! What else? These lipliners stay on. They don’t slip. And I like the colours I picked up because these nude-to-brown shades look great on me (I have pale skin, green eyes and ginger hair).

All in all, I’m happy I bought these lipliners, and I enjoy using them. But I’m equally sad because they’ve been discontinued. If you see these lipliners at your local discount store and wonder whether they’re any good – yes, they are!

UNE Casual Matt Colour Rouge Demi-Mat Lipstick M08

Hi there! Today’s post is about the lipstick I’ve been wearing on and off for the past 2-3 months – UNE Casual Matt Colour Rouge Demi-Mat Lipstick M08. UNE is (or was) an all natural brand which, unfortunately, has been discontinued. However, thanks to bargain stores and online shops, there are plenty of UNE products waiting to be picked up. Alrighty, onto the review!

I love this lipstick! The formula is absolutely perfect. I’ve tried terribly waxy matte lipsticks (MUA), and I’ve also had dry af matte lip products (Manhattan), but UNE’s lipstick formula is simply perfect. It feels like velvet, it doesn’t settle in the fine lines, it’s just perfect and I love it!

The colour is simply wonderful too. It’s a gorgeous rosey-nude that suits me very well. I usually prefer brownish-nude lipsticks, but this colour is just stunningly beautiful, so how could I not love it?!

UNE Casual Matt Colour Rouge Demi-Mat Lipstick M08 and other UNE products are only available through online bargain stores. I would definitely recommend you try at least 1 UNE product. 😘

Maybelline Color Elixir By Colorsensational 135 Raspberry Rhapsody

Hi there! Today’s review is about Maybelline Color Elixir By Colorsensational 135 Raspberry Rhapsody. This is one of the products I picked up very recently. Since I haven’t used a lipgloss in a while, I gave this one a try right away, and here’s what I think. 🙂

I love it! This lipgloss has the most amazing colour; it’s a dark raspberry shade which, unfortunately, was impossible to capture with any of the phones or cameras we own. Sorry! But I love the colour (it makes my teeth look whiter than they are, and it looks great with pale skin), I love the glossy finish (no glitter), I love the taste (candy vanilla), and I love that it hydrates my lips.

In summary, I love this lipgloss very much. I already went back to Poundland and bought a back-up! Maybelline Color Elixir By Colorsensational 135 Raspberry Rhapsody is available for £1 (Poundland).

Astor Soft Sensation Lipstick 114

Hi there! Today’s short post is about Astor‘s Soft Sensation Lipstick. The shade I’m wearing is 114. I think this is a lovely shade for this time of year. It’s a soft berry to plum shade that suits a lot of skin tones. I love this shade because it looks good with my pale skin. Many darker berry or plum shades give me an unwanted gothic look, so this kind of shade is just right for me. 🙂

I’m also in love with the formula. This is a super creamy lipstick that feels lovely on my lips. Whilst this lipstick doesn’t survive a meal, it lasts well if I don’t drink or snack every couple of minutes. And it lasts pretty much all day if I seal it with a lipliner (yes, a plain and simple lip liner). All in all, I’m very happy that I picked up this pretty lipstick for £1 at one of the bargain stores!

Claire’s Popcorn Popcorn Flavoured Lip Balm

Hi there! Today’s post is about a lip balm that I bought a little while ago for £1Claire’s Popcorn Popcorn Flavoured Lip Balm. I know I say this all the time, so here it goes again… I have too many lip balms, and I didn’t really need this one, but it looked too cute to resist! 🙂

How’s the lip balm? It’s brilliant! It hydrates my lips perfectly, and it really tastes and smells like popcorn. The flavour is 100% spot on! I’m keeping this lip balm in my make-up bag or on my desk, and several co-workers have commented on how cute it is. I should have bought 10 of these lip balms to give away to a few friends and co-workers, so that they could experience this freakinshly fantastic popcorn flavour too!
