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.

Makeup Revolution Noble

Hello everyone. How are you all today. The weather is struggling to make up its mind in what it wants to do today. Today I have a small collection of some lippies that I have been loving or fell back in love with. The first pic is me wearing Makeup Revolution’s Lip Kit in Noble. Love the nude shade and the creamy texture of the liquid lipstick. 

Lipsense Napa x3 and Strawberry Shortcake
I was wearing a lip colour combo here. Lipsense colours Napa and a little of Strawberry Shortcake to give it the pink tint. 

Lipsense Strawberry Shortcake

Makeup Revolution’s No Perfection Yet
The one above was just Strawberry Shortcake x3. A very lovely pinky red colour that came as a nice surprise. Not to in your face but still noticable. I was wearing Makeup Revolution’s ‘No Perfection Yet’ one of my growing fave’s!! 

Kiko cosmetics.
Look at that smile! I’m wearing Kiko here but dabbed on instead of building up on the colour. This one was found in one of the many boxes that still need sorted!! 

Such a pretty colour!!! 

Hope you all enjoyed and until next time!

A Lipsense Review

Hello my lovelies. How are you all doing this morning? Its a kind of grey day here, with some rain. A break from the constant heat which is good in a way. 

Today I’m back with a makeup review. And I’ll be honest I am in love with the brand for many reasons. It’s a chance to build your own buisness like Avon plus all about skincare and makeup. I love the lipstick part. And here is why:

Lipsense’s Red Cherry and Dawn Rising
These 2 shades are from Lipsense which is huge in the US at the monent and its slowly making its way over to the UK. The red is Red Cherry which was my first colour. This colour did tingle when I first put it on and was sticky. 3 coats later and I put on my matte moistursing gloss. And it wasn’t sticky. The colour just went pop and looked amazing. A nice red colour which normally I wouldn’t go for. 

It did have a strange taste but that did go away after a while. May have just gotten used to it. 

Lipsense comes in 3 parts. The colour which goes on 3 times, dried between each application. The gloss goes on last to seal in the colour and the Oops remover is for removing the product. Apparently the colours can be used together!! I haven’t tested that part out yet but will when I have more colors. 

It lasted a long time. Could only take off with the Oops remover. I even did the kiss test…….no transfer. Much to my partner’s delight. He hates lippy for some reason. Did the smudge test…….nothing on my fingers. 

Me wearing Dawn Rising
Dawn Rising is my second shade. It’s a nude/brown shade and is great for everyday wear. I was greatly surprised at how well the shade worked with my tone. 

Lipsense don’t test on animals which is a big thing for me. They have a selection of glosses depending on the finish that your after. From matte, gloss, opal etc

Now for price: the colours are £22 a tube, gloss is £18 and the Oops remover is £10. Pricey when your buying for the first time but I do like the brand. Loved it so much that I even joined the brand. Yes I am a distrubitor of Lipsense and only just started getting into the swing of things. 

For now I have got to go lovelies.

Until next time.

A Body Shop Nail Affair

Summer is here!!! The weather has been amazing the last few days (maybe weeks but meh!) With it being so hot and sunny I thought now would be a fab time to try a newish shade of nail colour from a brand I adore but never used nail wise. 

My friend got me some nail colours from the Body Shop for my birthday (that was back in January! 😫 sorry hunnie!) This cute lilac is just one of the shades she got me. A fun, cheeky pop of colour which is fab for summer. It’s in the shade ‘A Grape Affair’ and does remind me of grapes. I wanted a fun colour that I don’t normally wear and this has certainly got it going on. My sister loves how it glids on (she is a beauty student so she does my nails for extra pratice) 

I kinda feel like I’m cheating on Kiko right now. Normally Kiko is all I actually wear nail wise but I think they may have a challenge. (That’s just an excuse so I can get more!) No harm in adding some new pieces to the wardrobe. But in all honesty I do love the colour and was both pleased and surprised with the colour outcome. Heck I’m even digging it with my skintone, I’ve caught the sun so my tan has darkened nicely. 

What’s your favourite summer nail colour?? 

Until next time beauties.

Spring Nails (Where have I Been!) 

Hello lovelies. I’m back. I’ve been away for a bit due to ill health in the family. My step dad took ill and I’ve been helping where ever I can. A little stressful here and there but got aome positive results back from the hospital so fingers crossed all goes well. 

With all the stress recently my sister thought it would be a great idea to treat me to a wee pamper session. She had learned how to do some nail art and wanted to give it a try. 

Love the simple gems on the green nail varnish. Great for spring and cheering me up nicely. Nail varnish is by Kiko Milano Cosmetics. With everything that has happened it was nice to actually relax and breathe. 

Ross and me are just waiting on some news that could move things in a positive manner for us. Just need to wait. Either way it will be a big moment. 

Well until next time my beauties. Xx

February Beauty Favourites.

Good morning (or whenever you are reading this!) For once we have a lovely sunny day looking on us today. Today’s post is gonna be about my beauty favourite’s. And to be honest there isn’t a super large amount. But onto the post (while I have a 2 year old sitting on my lap!! FYI said 2 year old is my niece.) 

First up, lip products. I love my lip products and have a few new loves to share with ya. 

A few Makeup Revolution products and their new lip kit in Noble. I’ve already got a small review on that in an earlier post. The lipstick is ‘No Perfection Yet’ and only cost £1!!! Such a deep plum colour with a creamy texture.  I also recently re-discovered the ‘I Love strawberries and milkshake’ lip gloss which I love. Thought I had lost it actually. So glad I found it again. Plus it has a sweet taste. 

A smelly. And a very nice one at that. This is from River Island and called ‘By Night’, it smells amazing. Sweet but not over the top sweet. The best way to describe the scent is like coconut. £10 for this large bottle that I got for Christmas. (I already need a new one cause this one is almost finished!!) 

Now for skincare and its the Body Shop’s Drops of Youth. Which I’ve only started using this month. It does help with keeping my skin hydrated but its not super intense hydration. I’m not to keen on the oil like texture but I do love the way it soaks into my skin quickly. Not to mention the green bottle is pretty damn cool! 

Eeeek. A new palette. But what palette you say. This beauty is from Makeup Revolution from their I ❤ Makeup range. Such a sleek looking case. The the simpleness of it. But wait until you see the inside!! 

All the pretty colours. Ive just dabbled in this palette a few times. Its not been used loads yet but I’m building confidence in my eye makeup skills which where lacking…….greatly. I love the pastels the most along with the blues and pinks. Such a gorgeous palette that I can’t wait to explore more. 

Until next time my beauties.

A Retro Luxe Review. 

Good afternoon my lovelies. Hope you all having a great start to your week. Recently I’ve discovered the Revolution makeup brand and once again I’ve fallen head of heels for them. They don’t test on animals!! (Super important!) And their products are such good quality too. I got my little sister loads for her christmas and birthday. (She is a beauty student.) Now onto the reason for this post. 

A new craze. The Retro Luxe matte lip kit in the shade Noble. There are 8 of these beauts and I do know that Revolution have also released a few others recently too. I’m gonna be honest with ya………I wasn’t overly interested in these. However I thought I would give it a shot. And I’m so glad I did. The packaging is straight to the point. Eye catching and tells you exactly whats in it. I love the liquid lipstick’s bottle. Love the bronze lid and the colour of the lipstick makes it look vintage!! Now onto the colour. 

Look at the intense colour! It looks a little more brown in person but it’s such a gorgeous shade!! It has a lip liner and a liquid lipstick. (No makeup day and I have a breakout. Great!!) I don’t tend to go for nudes, however I’ll be keeping this beauty in my makeup bag for a while. It went on with ease both the liner and the liquid lipstick. It also doesn’t feel sticky or thick. And has given such a gorgeous layer of colour. With only one application!!! 😲😍

I got this from online and for only £6. Love it. I actually really love this and plan on getting the others. Also I used a lip plumper from Plump It as my base. I’ll have a review on that later on. 
Until next time my beauties.

Lets Get Naked. (Urban Decay Review)

No need to fear, there are no nudes in this post just a gal getting happily excited about an amazing skin product that I’ve been wanting for absolute ages! Lets get started shall we? First off, I’m not keen on foundation even though I do own one. The lovely no.7 foundation is great, has fantastic coverage however I just don’t like it. It can feel heavy plus restricting at times, even though I prep my skin beforehand really well!!

I do however love moisturiser, tinted moisturiser to be exact. I’ve been looking for ages for one that hydrates but also covers like a foundation, without the heaviness of one. I tried a many, but to no success.

So I continued my search that seemed to have no end when finally, I found one!!! From one of my favourite brands too!!

The Naked Skin One & Done hybrid complexion perfector SPF 20 in the shade Medium Light is beyond perfection. A mix of a foundation and a hydrating moisturiser. I just need a small ish amount (not nearly as much as foundation) and it covers beautifully. It’s light weight, moisterising and fits my skin tone perfectly. It blends seemlessly while working well with my conclearer. 

I had tried this before I got this one. I had used it within 2 days and wanted it. So my lovely sister got me the 40ml bottle for Christmas…….or in my case an early Christmas. I’m not complaining. The packaging is sleek, with a great little squeezy pump. I love using my fingers to cover then a brush to buff it out. Honestly I’m so glad I came across this baby, it will defo be replacing my foundation that’s for sure. 

Would I repurchase, em yes!!! I already have a back up. 😆 

Until next time my beauties.

Revolution Lippies

Hello beauties. How is your week so far? I’m currently full of the cold, which isn’t fun. Never is. Anyway I recently made a couple of purchases that I should have made a while back. (Okay a couple weeks ago at least!) 

How beautiful are these!! 😍 I actually love them. 2 of Makeup Revolution Iconic Matte lipstick range in the shades ‘Diamond Life’ and ‘Chauffer’. And they are stunning. The packaging is subtle and very chic. Not of the top but stylish and easy to use. I also love the fact that they DO NOT test on animals. Fantastic. 

This is ‘Diamond Life’, a stunning dark burgundy (deep red) colour that glides on beautifully. It is alot darker in person. I only needed to swipe this once for the swatche but thought I should do more to give it a more intense colour. 3 swipes and you can see the colour. Very creamy in texture but does need to be re-applied after a few hours. Love it for the winter season too. 

I normally don’t like nudes. However ‘Chauffer’ is a stunning deeper nude shade. Again the pigmentation in these lipsticks is amazing. Although its not much of a winter shade, I think that I can get away with this one. Both of these lippies where from my local Superdrug, in the Revolution section at £3.00. 

 I did also take advantage of the offer they had. Spend a £10 and get a free palette. I got these 2 for myself and the third one went to the sister. (All other purchases are for Christmas!!) 

Until next time beauties. xx

Nyx Galore.

Hello beautiful people. How are you all on this cold, bitter, icy day? 

I think I may have developed a problem or slight addiction. Hay I knew it was coming and I did warn everyone but no one believed me. Until this happened……..

I own 25 lippies!!!! Yay. Anyway these are the newest additions to the collection.(keep reading for a surprise at the end!!) All from Nyx (who ever introduced me to Nyx, while I say thank you, Ross doesn’t!) 😅 Enough of that onto the good stuff. 

Now I know the light pink is not a winter colour. However I couldn’t resist it. The packaging is adorable plus the colour itself is beautiful. A nice pop of pink that looks great and actually works with me. It’s the Nyx Lipstick Butter in ‘Sweet Tart’. The name suits the colour. Plus its super creamy and doesn’t feel like its drying at the moment. 

Now these 2 are winter colours! Look back up for the swatche on my hand. Both are stunning dark berry colours. While the lip pencil in ‘Auburn’ is more than a rustic red, like a red grape wjile the matte Lip Cream in ‘Transylvania’ is more like a plum shade. So dark and daring. Love em. Plus love how creamy they are. 

Hmmmm wonder what to buy next?? 

Surpise!!!! Yip its blue. I have always said blue is my favourite colour. And can’t leave it without a wee show off. 

Look how blue it is, oh hay it matchs my nails! I do love the sheer colour and how it’s very different. This is from Nyx’s Wicked lippie collection in the shade ‘Sinful’. Perhaps I should wear this more often then. A halloween colour for sure, or cosplay. 

Anyway until next time my beauties.
