Miss Sporty lip creams

Even though I just did a blog post on possibly the best drugstore liquid lipsticks, when I saw these on Instagram, I knew I wanted to try them out. They are obviously more affordable and I wanted to see if they were any good so I picked up three of the shades to test out.

First of all I really like these pinky nude shades, they go with every make up look. I got the shades Lively Rose, Vibrant Mocha and Cheerful Pink When applying I would say they do have a bit of a smell to them, like you know that chemical scent, which they did try to hide, but you can still smell it. So that’s a bit off putting, I don’t really like that typical chemical scent to any make up product.

In consistency it is moussy, I find them similar to The Body Shop Matte Liquid Lips. They are pigmented enough and have a nice colour payoff. They dry down quickly and they are comfortable to wear, but I find them drying after a few hours.

They claim to be kiss-proof and to last for 24 hours, they do last well, but only until you eat something, and then it rubs off on the inner parts of your lip. The only good thing is the colours are so close to actual lip colours, that I think it’s not that noticeable if it rubs off, which is good, if you have no chance to touch it up during the day.

All in all, I think you get a liquid lipstick that is worth its price, I think that there are better ones in the drugstore, like the Maybelline Superstay Matte Inks, but these are a great option if your looking for something cheap and easy to wear.

Hope you liked this little review, and let me know if you tried these liquid lipstick, and what do you think about them.

February faves

Another month has gone from 2017, it is really crazy how fast time goes. But to be honest I can’t wait for spring and summer, and just generally more sunshine. In the meantime, while we’re waiting, what better to do than try out new beauty bits, and then blog about them, right? 😉 So let’s get into all the products I discovered and loved in the month of February.

The Body Shop Seaweed Oil Balancing Clay Mask

At the beginning of the month I took a trip to The Body Shop, because I wanted to try out new skincare bit and bobs. The first thing to catch my eye was the seaweed clay mask for oily and combination skin. Masks never really have been a part of my skin care routine, but always wanted to try a clay mask. So I did, and I have to say I really like it. It works like every clay mask I imagine, you put the clay onto your skin, leave it for 10 mins to dry and work its magic. My skin feels extra clean after it and really smooth. Beware though, that this mask will probably draw out your spots and zits, but that is all okay, because that’s what a mask is supposed to do. Also be careful when you’re taking it off, so wet your whole face before starting to wash it off, so that you won’t pull your face with dried clay on it (ouchhh!) .

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

I’m probably the only beauty blogger who hasn’t tried and used this sponge yet. Somehow I was always using brushes and my fingers to apply foundation and to be honest I rarely think about changing things up in my make up routine, but I thought it was time to give this sponge a chance. So compared to a brush, using a sponge to blend in your foundation is a way better choice. With dabbing the foundation onto the skin, you can work it in really well, I find it gives more coverage as I’m not pulling my foundation on my face. Overall it gives you a better and flawless finish, it’s soo easy to use and absolutely worth the money and now I couldn’t go back to using my brushes or fingers.

The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid

I am a sucker for a matte lippie. No matter how many I own already I know that I will always want more. I like wearing matte lipstick on my lips more than non matte ones. I like that they are dry and stay put all day, and because I have my teeth sticking out I don’t have to worry about lipstick getting on them all the time. So it was inevitable to try out some of the Body Shop matte lipstick as well. I got two shades Tapei Orchid which is a bright pinky shade, the perfect kind of pink I like, another one is Nairobi Camellia which is a darker pinky shade. They stay put for hours and they don’t dry my lips. Oh and they smell soo sweet and good. The formulation is thicker than the Too faced or Barry M ones, but they are very easy to apply nonetheless.

Benefit POREfessional primer

This was safe to say my best find in February. I splurged out on a Benefit Porefessional primer and it has changed so much in my make up routine. I have giant pores on my cheek near my nose, and I always hated them. I usually just used my foundation to cover them up, and make them disappear, but then I got a sample of this product last Christmas and tried it out and fell in love with it. It has a silky consistency, it is transparent and it makes your pores invisible. Win,win,win! I know it is on the pricey side, but everybody is raving about it for a reason, it is that good.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Sink In Mask

After the cold winter months, I find that using a moisturizer in the morning is not enough for my face anymore, it still feels dry like a plant that really needs watering. So I was very happy when I found this Body Shop Vitamin E sink in Mask. It feels like gelatin in a tub, and you apply it before going to bed, after you’ve done your skincare routine of course, and leave it in for overnight, wash it off the next morning. My skin feels so soft and nice after using it.  Would absolutely recommend if you have dry skin, using it twice a week will work wonders, I can promise you that.

So these were all my fave for the month of February. What were you’re fave products that you discovered?
