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! ☺️

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect 81R & Stamping With MoYou London Illusion 09 (Nail Fail)

Hi there! Today’s Nail Of The Day post is about a mani that didn’t turn out I had hoped. So this is a Nail Fail post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect 81R. This light green polish was opaque in 2 coats. What a nice surprise!

I thought I’d use MoYou London‘s Illusion 09 plate and one of the new MoYou London stampers I bought just recently. The black polish I stamped with is a random polish (can’t remember).

I didn’t like this mani because the images looked completely off. I should have done a few practice stamps. Ah well! I guess I have to get used to that wobbly stamper. Or maybe I’ll stash it away (and never touch it again). I haven’t decided yet.

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan M&Buffalo 18, Claire’s Green Splatter & Stamping With MoYou London Tropical 14 / 31 Day Nail Art Challenge #4 Green Nails

Hi there! This is another mani I did not too long ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan M&Buffalo 18 (2 coats). This is a lovely polish.

The glitter top coat I used on my pinkies and ring fingers is Claire’s Green Splatter. I think this top coat looks amazing! 😍

For the images on my thumbs, index and ring fingers I used MoYou London‘s Tropical 14 stamping plate and MoYou London‘s Little Pickle stamping polish.

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Quick Dry 46, Barry M Amethyst Glitter, Primark PS… Marshmallow & Stamping With MoYou London Rebel 07

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhatten Quick Dry 46K (dark red base colour, 2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers) and Primark PS… Marshmallow (white base, 2 coats, ring fingers, pinkies).

The pretty glitter top coat is Barry M Amethyst Glitter. For the images I used MoYou London‘s Rebel 07 stamping plate and a random black polish.

The mani wasn’t what I had in mind. Whilst the red glitter nails looked great, the black and white nails weren’t my best work. The black polish I stamped with isn’t suitable for stamping, and the images ended up the wrong way around… Whoops!

Ah well, things like these happen sometimes. Onto the next mani! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect Nail Polish 21G & Stamping With MoYou London Illusion 09

Hi there! Here’s another Nail Of The Day post!

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect Nail Polish 21G (2 easy coats).

I think this is a beautiful yellow nail polish. It’s not too bright, but it’s also not too boring. It’s just right. 🙂

I also got another chance to use my MoYou London Illusion 09 stamping plate again.

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

A few of the images were a bit smudged. That’s an issue with the plate and not with the polish. I have no doubt that, in real life, no one would notice.

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Marshmallow & Stamping With Pueen 114

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did recently. And it’s another Halloween-inspired mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Marshmallow (2 coats). I like this polish. It’s opaque in 2 easy coats, and it was 90p. Thanks, Primark!

I used Pueen‘s 114 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection) and Manhattan Quick Dry 46K for the images. I did another mani with this stamping recently, and my blogging buddy Helen from Brokedown Vanity thought the image would be perfect for Halloween. I don’t think she had this kind of mani  in mind, but when she mentioned Halloween, I thought “OMG, yes”. 🙂

I do like this mani because it reminds me very much of Dexter. I did smudge a few bits, but all in all, I think this is another mani I’m happy to file under Halloween Nail Ideas.

Manhattan Soft Mat Lip Cream 56K

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing another matte lip product – Manhattan Soft Mat Lip Cream 56K. I’ve already reviewed one of these matte lip products, and you can read the review here. But let’s focus on this one!

Right… I don’t like this product at all. And here’s why: First of all, both the look and the feel of this product are dry af. Terrible! This lip cream feels wonderfully velvety when it’s applied, but once it’s dry, it really is dry! But there’s more…

The colour is something else! This shade is clearly not for me. Since I hate letting products go to waste, I am now mixing this mat lip cream with the other one (pale nude shade) AND with an overly creamy lipstick (the kind that doesn’t just bleed into the foundation but actually almost “slips off”). I know it sounds over the top but it actually works well, so I’m getting more than just some use out of a number of unloved products. 🙂

If you’re interested in matte lip products, Manhattan‘s Soft Mat Lip Creams (different shades) are available at the Poundstores for £1 each.
