MUR Lip Kits Haul and Review.

Hello my lovelies!! This is a little haul I got  awhile back and thought I should share it now with you all. But first, how was everyone’s Christmas? I hope however you spent the day that you enjoyed it all the same. (My partner is ruining the flat with his damn drone. I should never have got him it!! 😂😅) 

Now onto the haul. Its a lip kit haul from MUR or Makeup Revolution to be exact. All of these where bought from Superdrug for £8 each. (I got a 2 for 3 deal and wanted a treat!) So lets get started shall we: 

The haul.
There are 7 lip kits here and I’ll talk about them all. (Ish, I have a little negative feedback on one but it happens.) Lets start with my favourite one first. 

Regent the metallic lip kit.

How stunning is this red! The best thing is that it’s metallic as well. Very pretty shade and love that it doesn’t make me look washed out. The lip pencil is lush as well and can be worn for a much softer everyday kinda look. The metallic packiging is cute too, and great for telling the difference. Lol.

Next onto a not so favourite.

The Holographic Lip Kit

The sparkly one on my hand that you can barely see is the holographic lipkit in Unicorn Dream. And it was a kind of disappointment. The purple lip liner and the spark liquid lip stick are not a nice combo. And that’s just my personal opinion. I’m happy to wear em individually but defo not together. Which is a damn shame. 

Vampire Night’s!
It was the name on this one that got me if I’m honest. And it is a lovely one as well. A matte lip kit for a matte loving gal. In the pic it was just applied so it still looks wet, but now it’s dried into a deep wine red colour that’s great for that vamp look. Or dark lip lovers out there. Royal and Majesty are both matte lip kits also with stunning colours between them. (Sorry no pics at the mo but will be in my next monthly lipstick library!) 

A little Integrity.
While I’m not a major fan of gloss finishes this colour is beautiful. A lovely blend of pink and purple. Fabulous. More than likely wear the lip pencil on it’s own but I’m happy to give this one a try. 

Empire’s don’t build themselves.
This copper shade is Empire and yet another metallic liquid lipstick. Just one of the very few copper shades that I own. It’s a second favourite even though it dries more gloss than matte. The colour won this one over that’s for sure, plus it’s great to play around with. 

Hope you enjoyed this little haul folks. Until next time my lovelies.

February’s Sketchbook

Another installment of my sketchbook’s from the last month. (This will be a monthly post!!) I’ve noticed I draw alot of eyes, lips and hearts for some strange reason. Why I’m not exactly sure. The above piece was a shading and learning curve. In a simple pencil. By the way, if anyone has any artistic advice please don’t be afraid to share in the comments! Or even even some lovely active artistic blogs would be fantastic.

This was drawn a while back but I actually love it. It was my first colour test of an eye. However I had altered the shape alot. Really chuffed with the colour and how the skin tone worked oit rather nicely. I had done loads of manga drawing so that will most likely be an influence. 

Another older piece that makes me happy every time I see it. Loved playing the the shape and colours. First time I actually used a white pencil in my work that I wantes to make noticeable!!! 

This was a 15 minute facial sketch………boy do I have a long way to go!! Still need to work on placement, size and the proportions but I do feel like I’ve made great progress!!

This is an on going banner piece. I see loads of stunning banners everywhere. So I thought I would give it a try myself, turns out to be a tad stressful. I still don’t think its lined up right but great practice. I do like the flower detail but plan on adding text and more petal details. 

Yet another lip study. This one just a little larger in orange. So far I like the detail and the shading on the upper lip. (I HATE DRAWING TEETH!!!) I may just keep it as an unfinished piece. Not to sure yet. 

Yet another eye study but this one is a tad more realistic. I changed the shape slighty and can again see great development. However the eyebrow……..I have no idea what happened. 

I was basically playing about with lines and this happened. A skirt and leg placement. Gonna need to work on that knee though. Everything else looks good but it looks odd.

These 2 pics. (One above and below.) These where just pieces I was doing to use up leftover acrylic paint. First time I used this techinque………I love it!! They look like dandelion’s! Feel like I’m defo gonna have to explore this one more. But I do feel sorry for my poor brush. (It had a good wash after and a well deserved rest.)

It’s green!! I finished my first large arcylic painting. A simplified gemstone piece. I used 2 different shades of green and added white to lighten it up. I don’t think I have an even coverage but it turned out so much better than what I expected. The black outline is black biro pen. Love the effect and combo.

Until next time my lovelies.
