Givencyhy Hydra Sparkling Magic Cheek & Lip Blam Mousturizig Rosy Glow

In comparison to using each product targeted towards fulfilling a particular beauty need, I prefer reaching out for multi tasking products. This is one such wonder jar, that has been my go-to for over a month now. 

My initial concerns was the size of the jar, and the product quantity but do not be misguided! A tiny swipe goes a long way. I use it on my lips for a nice rosy stain with absolute hydration. It feels greasy to touch but once applied it feels so natural. The lasting powder is unimaginable. I have recently replaced my blushes for this balm for a 12 hour lasting and hydrating healthy cheek glow. I wear it over my Chanel Double Perfecrion Lumiere Powder Makeup and I get a 12 hour makeup in check. 

   
       
OVERALL : A bit pricey but I already got my second one because I cannot survive a day without it. I absolutely recommend it !! For once I’ll say that size does not matter.

Pixi by Petra Lip Lift Max in Petal Ice

*Press Sample 

This is a clear lip plumper/ lip gloss. Although it appears to have a tint, it’s completely sheer like a clear lip gloss. Applies to a tingly minty sensation. I did not notice much plumping, but in honesty my lips are plump already, so I will not be able to validate the claim. Applies well and hydrates.

Rouge Dior Baume In 740 Escapade and 660 Coquette 

The freshest, most protective, easy-wearing and complementary of Rouge Dior products. No need to choose between lipcare and makeup—in a single step, lips are revived in colours with a healthy glow and wet dew-like shine, and drenched in a protective nourishing lip treatment.

These lip balms are better categorized as hydrating lipsticks than tinted lip balms. With a sleek and slightly more slender silhouette than the Rouge Dior Lipcolors, these lip baulms are more moisturizing and feels lighter on the lips than the other creamier lipcolors. The finish is sheen and although it’s a little on the pricier side of the budget, this compares to nothing like I have used before. Available in 14 shades from varying hues of nudes, pinks and neutrals there is something for everyone.







Swatched 3 coats of the lip Baume, the color is buildable to desired intensity without the feeling of an over application.




Swatches :Escapade on Top and Couquette On Bottom.

OVERALL: You can see how the lip colors are rich and pigmented. The matte are true colors, very strangely they are the first matte finish ones that don’t dry my lips… The cream finish have a shimmer to them , that add a dual color and a depth to the color. This adds a well interesting dimension to your overall makeup look.
They can be purchased online at BlackOpalBeauty.com , Walmart, Amazon.com and online via shopping sites. If you have been living under a rock and not tried these products, I strongly urge you to give these a try.

Playboy Lipstick – In The Pink & Bubblegum Pink

*Press Sample

I always associated Playboy with the “educational and inspirational” magazines, bunny ears and the bunny costume, playboy mansion and the endless parties. I had no idea they made makeup, and yes the “traditional” makeup!
I share two lipsticks I got a chance to review ..

OVERALL: Very creamy lipsticks I must say. Easy to glide and apply. Hydrating. The only disappointing factor was the Bubblegum pink Color, doesn’t go with my skin tone a bit. The other color, In The Pink, was just my kind. Will be definitely wearing it in the future. I believe these sell for under £2 Each, so you cannot beat that price.

Fruit Vines: Soft Chewy fruit candy available in Strawberry and Cherry flavors. Reminds me of twizzlers. These are perfect bite sized, low fat snack.

2015/02/img_7985.png

Eco Tools Hair Brush: Has a unique bamboo handle and super soft but firm bristles. The real magic behind the “no pain” yet super effective brush is the soft plastic arched support to the bristles that absorbs extra pressure and delivers a great brushing experience without all the scalp scratching. Absolutely love this!!!

Mc Cormick Gourmet Thyme : I have used Mc Cormick brand spices before and one thing I strongly agree with is the absolute quality they deliver. I used thyme for seasoning chicken, turkey and salads.

2015/02/img_7989.png

Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover: It really feels like water. Fragrance free and yet affective. I love how it can be used on eyes with contact lenses, something I struggle with all the time. The remover can be used over the face too, it leaves my skin feeling pampered and fresh.

Urban Decay Naked Lip gloss In Naked

Extremely hydrating. I love the sheer color. Although swatches show a hint of sheer pink with shimmer, on lips it transfers as more of a ultra sheer shimmer. Nevertheless, very wearable color on its own or over a lip color. It lasts pretty well, would need reapplying after a meal but pretty much they all do.
