M.A.C Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour -Red Jade review

Hey guys a flash review of the MAC matte liquid lip colour in Red Jade. This was a blind purchase in terms of buying it without actually seeing the colour in real life. My decision was based on the colour shown on the MAC site. 

This lip colour is applied as a liquid but it drys matte.  I loved these types of lipsticks because they are very long lasting and do not transfer. Although this is called a Red Jade, it has an orangy undertone.  Shades like this are very vibrant and great for the summer. I was so pleased with the colour. Totally my kinda thing. 

I had some challenges applying this lip colour. In order to avoid streaks I had to apply 2-3 coats. DO NOT pat down once the lipstick has started to dry.   I mad this mistake and had to start over because it caused clumping .

I really like the applicator. The shaping helps with going round the lips for better precision. So far I have had lots of compliments on this lipstick.  I bought it here with 30%off.  The great news is that MAC are doing 20% off all products right now using the discount code mac20. So you can buy this and other similar fab products.  

Have fun.  
See you soon.

MUA LUXE Velvet lip lacquer – Gravity

So this is the last of the 3 lipsticks bought from the MUA LUXE velvet lip lacquer range. 

Today am wearing the shade Gravity.

This colour did not disappoint. I have been trying to build my collection of nudes and this fits perfectly into what I have already. 

The product is marketed as Long wear. In all honestly it last me all day. I usually have to use a makeup cleanser to remove this lipstick at the end od the day. Am sure you are all wondering if there is any transfer. You will be pleased to know that there is no transfer once dry.

Hey… if you have tried other shades in this range let me know your thoughts. Amy recommendations are welcomed in the comments box below.

MUA LUXE Velvet lip lacquer – Euphoria

Hey guys … so today am trying out the Euphoria Velvet Lip Lacquer.

Not sure how to describe this lipstick.  It looks very Pinky in the hand. Almost like a baby pink.

However on applying it, it is super bright and rather luminous. 

This is not for the faint hearted.

While am growing to love this shade I found the application some what difficult. The colour was streaky. So in my effort to combat this I applied various layers …ooooops. BIG MISTAKE ! Sadly this just made the lipstick very thick and a little crackly.

I decided to tone this lip colour down by lining my lips. 

I have one more lip colour to trial.   Stay tuned . Let me know which colours loving so far

MUA LUXE Velvet lip lacquer – Sizzle

Lipsticks are a girl’s bestfriend.  It’s even better when you find a good buy. 

You can image the glee when I found out the superdrugs were doing 3 for 2 on beauty products. I didn’t plan on buying this lipsticks but the offer was too good to miss🙈

I spotted the MUA LUXE liquid lipstic and thought I would give it a try. 

Totally impressed by the colours available. Cool nudes and some vibrant blue shapes.

I opted for the Sizzle as I do not currently own any rusty orange shades of lipstick.   This is exactly how I would describe this lipstick. A rusty, burnt orange tone. 

This lipstick tub is well designed with a light frosted finish.  

I like the pigmentation of this lipstick. Well worth the £3.  Yes I said £3. It dries fairly quickly so you have to be quick. Once dry my lips do not feel hard and dry, or crumbly like most matte lipsticks. 

I will keep you all posted on how I get on with the other shaded that I bought. 

This product was purchased from Superdrugs.

Primark- PS Matte Long Last Lipstick (Atomic) Review

So I recently lost my lipstick bag😯😯 and some fabulous lipstick shades. I was so gutted but I have been having a blast rebuilding my collection💄💄💄.

I went back to Primark for a mini haul .

This product is marketed as a matte lipstick.  I found that it’s not as drying or matte as the likes of MAC or Lime Crime. In a way I liked this.  Non of that chapped lips look .

image

image

This pink shade is called Atomic. It reminds me soo much of the Utopia by LimeCrime.  But at a fraction of the price…. winning.
I did a little comparison just for you.

LimeCrime Utopia

The Lime Crime is a few shades deeper but they are equally fabulous shades of pink.

image

This lipstick is a bargain at just £1.50

Get yours now ! These lipsticks sell out fast at Primark.

Travel Diaries -Pink Affair

Sometimes girls just ‘wanna’ be girls. I find the colour pink to be so girly but once in a while it’s good to indulge.
When am on holiday there are no heels rules. When I can, I wear the highest heels I have and cause a lot of commotion because I know in a few days or weeks I will pack my bags and be on my way.😃😃😃😁😁😁😁

Nails Inc spray can Review

So it’s been some weeks since I posted my initial look/ how to /review of the Nails Inc Spray can.
Weeks later I am in a better position to comment on the durability of this nail varnish.

image

I had not thought of this till I looked at this picture.  This product is perfectly designed to fit into the hand. The can is not to small or to big for that matter. I guess it all makes for easier use and application .

image

It claims to be the fastest manicure.  Well.. if your only considering the time it takes to spray the paint and allow it to dry… then you might be onto something . But once I factor in the time I spend prepping for application ( covering my furniture ) and then having to wash the excess off my finger.  I am not sure it’s so fast. I definitely would not be using this product when am in a rush.

image

To my suprise this product adhered very well to the nail as long as you apply your base and top coat.

Now for what you have all been waiting for.

Does it last.

Well…  it held up pretty well. It can’t be compared to your nail gels etc but it didn’t do too bad either.
The picture below was taken one week after application

Models own : Hyper gel

As I walked through the Brent Cross shopping mall in London I was instantly drawn to the Model’s own stand. OMG it was amazing.  It was like a big candy store so colourful and FULL of nail goodies.

To top things off they had an offer on

Woooooow. I just had to take 5 fabulous colours.

This was the first time I had seen hyper gel nail polish. A little sceptical at first but this stuff is GOOD.

No need for UV lights

Lips… bittersweet

I work so hard for my ££ so I have to be doubly  sure before spending it.

This Bittersweet pro longwear lip pencil from M.A.C was a bittersweet purchase @ £15.00 but it is soooo worth it.

image

I used this lip pencil all over the lips to achieve this matte lip colour. I only learnt to do this recently ( thanks Saima for the head up😉) and it is fantastic. I love the standard matte lipsticks but I find they get very dryy and crackly.
Don’t you just love that rusty brown shade 💋

I have to give it to M.A.C this prolong lip pencil glide on so smoothly. It’s almost like a second skin. At time of writing this lips pencil has been on for 6 hrs.

A Tall and plus thumbs up from me.

Fashion has no eyes

I recently changed my hair as you might have noticed from my pictures .

I have had a few compliments as to how fashionable a full fringe looks on me.  Fashionable is definitely good but this fringe is sooo long.. I can hardly see without tilting my head back.

They say the eyes are the windows to ones soul so I want to showcase mine.

I have been using the Benefit Eye Bright from Boots to give my eye a wider and brighter appearance.

image

This is so worth the £15.50

image

Take care not to over apply as it can look slightly odd if done over the top.
