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! ☺️

Manhattan Cosmetics Soft Mat Lip Cream 95G

Hi there! Today’s post is about a product that’s been living in my cosmetic bag for quite some time – Manhattan Soft Mat Lip Cream 95G. These Manhattan lip products have hit the Poundstores (different shades are available), so I thought it’s time for a review. 🙂

So how’s the product? I think it’s not great. This lip cream applies like liquid velvet (it feels amazing), but within a few minutes it dries down to a matte mess. It feels very drying, it doesn’t look good or natural, and the pale nude colour makes me look ill. If you’re wondering why I’ve chosen such a light shade… well, this was the darkest (or the 2nd darkest) available shade. I expected something else…

Having said that, I found a way to make the product work for me! I use it as a base for all those uber-creamy lipsticks that don’t last or tend to bleed. Guess what? It works! Perfectly! You could say the dry lip cream and those uber-creamy lipsticks cling to each other!

All in all, I have no reason to complain. This lip cream has given me the chance to wear a number of different lipsticks that I didn’t think I’d be able to wear at all (well, at least not without checking my lips every half hour…).

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!
