Lipbalm Lovin'




💋💋💋

Have I got a lip balm lovin' post to share with you today! I just had to share my views on the lipbalm that is inspired by the very popular game, Candy Crush and a Reese's lipbalm based on the actual chocolate confection!
I was lovingly sent two flavours to try out and I could not wait to share my thoughts with you.

I was sent Candy Crush Lemonade Lake* and Reese's*.

I am LOVING the packaging! The cute and quirky design definitely catches your eye and would definitely brighten up your make-up bag too!
These balms have got a creamy formula that glides so effortlessly across the lips, my lips got an instant hydration boost and they felt oh-so soft and moisturised.
Lemonade Lake has to be my favourite out of the two, since I love fruity flavours and the scent is spot on! The hubby decided to 'borrow' the Reese's lipbalm ^^ he's got a sweet tooth and we actually both were glad that it didn't have any colour pay off because I don't either of us could rock an orange lip haha! It did however give a lovely sweetly scented sheen to the lips
These lipbalms have certainly got a novelty factor and will definitely give your lips a sweetly scented glaze. It sits comfortably on the lips but don't expect it to heal chapped lips instead expect a quick fix of hydration with a subtle shine.
These lipbalms are perfect for when you're on the move and in need of a quick moisture fix. I currently have Lemonade Lake in my make-up bag and I love wearing it daily before applying my favourite lipstick.


What do you think of these cute lipbalms and which one would you choose?

Sleek Distorted Dreams Highlighting Palette* Review






👀💜✌

Product review featuring:
...............................................................
Sleek Distorted Dreams Highlighting Palette - £10.99*

What is it?
A luminescent highlighting palette that contains a range of five stunning shades in a mixture of cream and powder textures. This palette can also be used to illuminate your eyelids, lips and cheeks! Such a fun palette to experiment with!

My thoughts
Say hello to the most prettiest highlighting compact ever! The shiny silver compact certainly catches your attention and once you open up the compact you are greeted with five stunning unicorn-esque highlighters and a very good clear mirror too!
The compact contains both powder and cream formulations, allowing you to really play around with the different highlighters, so far I have used both the pink and gold powders and the light gold cream and I am loving all of those. I still have not really used the green and blue highlighters and I think those will look great on the eyes rather than the cheeks or lips. The blue may of come in a smaller amount but it has the most shine and glitz, sure was fun swatching all of these too.
I really do think Sleek have made a good quality palette that is easy to use and gives you that wow factor that will definitely make you look 'lit'

Overall I am really impressed by this palette and I think we all need to have this in our collection, if you get a chance, do swatch these if you happen to be at Superdrug so you can see how insanely stunning the highlighters look because my pictures certainly did not do any justice. The ultimate princessy highlighter!

My Favourite Lip Duo From Essence Cosmetics





💋💋💋

Featuring
...............................................

Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipgloss in 'La Vie Est Belle'
Essence Longlasting Lipstick in 'Nude Love'

It's a fact. Essence Cosmetics are definitely one of my favourite brands when it comes to super quality products without breaking the bank and today's review is all about the latest two additions in my Essence lip collection. Read on to see me rave about these gems!

Lipstick Lovin'
I think I already own four or five other shades from this lipstick line and boy oh boy! Do they mean business! This is the perfect nude shade for easy everyday wear. It can suit any skintone and it wears so comfortably on the lips, giving you perfect shine everytime. It feels so moisturising on the lips and is very buildable. These particular lipsticks have a longer lasting power and can wear from up to 4-5 hours depending if you have eaten or if you have had something to drink. Now for some that may seem like a small amount of time but for the price you really cannot complain. I also like how you can see the colour of the lipstick shade by the band around the case so you can definitely collect these and arrange them in a lipstick holder.

Matte lips for life
I still LOVE the matte lip trend and it was the only lip product left to try from Essence. I am so glad I picked up this product and shade because it is amazing!! This beautiful milky pink shade looks so stunning on and it has the most creamiest mousse-like formulation ever! It doesn't even feel like you are wearing a matte lip product because some can feel very drying and uncomfortable. This wears for a good amount of time before it starts to leave a little pink tint on the lips. I can imagine how great the darker shades must be if this one is really good. If you love scented lip products then you'll love this one because it has this really yummy vanilla scent which I personally do not mind and it is not overpowering at all. A very pigmented lip product with extremely high coverage.

Essence Cosmetics are available both online and in store at Wilko and the best part? both lip products are only... wait for it... £2.30!!!
