MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers

Originally posted on The Flower That Blooms:
Ever since we started our blog we’ve been wanting to try new products. Prior to blogging we rarely wore lip products, now over a year into having our blog , we have a new found love for liquid lipsticks in particular! If you read our blog regularly you’ll know that we love the brand MUA and have done a few haul posts in the past. We saw that they had a range of matte liquid lipsticks and as we’re huge fans of a matte lip, we thought we’d try them out! From Left to Right : Passion/Dash/Harmony There are a range of colours in the Velvet Lip Lacquer collection starting from nudes and bold pinks all the way down to the deepest purple and even black! The velvet lip lacquers are a highly pigmented matte gloss, which dry really quickly once applied. As we were unsure if we were going to like the product we only picked up 3 at first. However, since these photos were taken we’ve added a few more…

Drugstore Brands I want to try more from!

Since starting my blog I have got much better at venturing into new brands, but I feel as though there are still many brands I want to explore more. I’ve seen a few of these posts recently so I thought I would give you my own spin on it, starting with the drugstore brands I want to try more from. Revlon -?Revlon is a brand I have always been aware of but for some reason I have barely tried any of their products, except from this gorgeous pink lipstick I received in a Glossybox. They have just released a whole range of new mascaras which I would love to try, and I would also like to try their Color Stay foundation. NYX -?When Valentina & I did our beauty swap, she kindly sent me some Nyx products. I have fallen in love with the butter gloss in Tiramisu, and I literally want to try every shade. Their HD concealer has also caught my attention and also their primers. H&M Beauty -?I…

December Glossybox: The Rose Gold Edit

To say that my December Glossybox arrived just as I was leaving for my Botox appointment makes my life sound soooo much more glamorous than it is. Nonetheless, it’s true. I was off to my 3 monthly Botox treatment for Chronic Migraine and not looking forward to it at all, as usual; the 30+ injections into scalp/neck/forehead/temples are really quite painful for me at the moment. So it was nice to have a treat waiting for me when I got home. ???? The box itself is very pretty and festive this month, without a snowman or Santa in sight. I’m always a fan of the special boxes but I particularly like this one; sooooo pretty & perfect for the glowy theme this month.? ?? ? This month’s box is the Rose Gold Edit produced in collaboration with blogger Really Ree.There are six products rather than the usual five with a combined value of over £50; Glossybox is always good value for money.? ??

Worth the hype? | MAC Whirl

Originally posted on LucieLeannexo:
Since the release of the new MAC matte range in August, Whirl has been one of the most talked about lipsticks in the blogging community. It was inevitable eventually I would end up purchasing this, especially after seeing so many rave reviews and the fact I’m totally addicted to MAC lipsticks. Whirl is like the darker, bolder big sister of Velvet Teddy. MAC describe this is a dirty rose, on my skin tone it pulls a lot more brown nude though. As with VT, I think Whirl would suit a wide range of skin tones. On a pale complexion like mine it is quite a bold shade but I still think it’s a very versatile colour. I think Whirl is a great shade for the colder months of the year, I’m not I will get as much from this shade when Spring/Summer comes around. Whirl is a matte finish, it is one of the more drying MAC lipsticks I’ve tried but it isn’t overly uncomfortable on the lips. It does tug…
