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.

In love with the Selfie Story collection

I got a very exciting package in the post today and it was a delivery from Feelunique. I know it contained the new Tanya Burr Cosmetics collection, the Selfie Story collection and I am just so excited to share my opinion on it with you.

I usually don’t go anywhere without wearing mascara and a liner, but at least a mascara. So I was just very happy that two of my absolute fave make up items were in this collection and I finally get to try them out.

But let’s talk about the brow pencil, Selfie Scuplt, first as I am sort of typing this blog post as I’m doing my make up so I can get my true first impression written down.

I actually really like the shape of the brow pencil. I chose the shade medium and it is a perfect fit for my browns. I like the rectangular shape and it is easy to use and really shapes your brows well. I like how I can move it around as I’m putting it on and getting different angles of the product. Just seems to be working perfectly.

The next item I’m trying out is the Selfie Flick eyeliner. I’ve watched Tanya’s videos when she was talking about this new products and when I saw her using the eyeliner I got very intrigued. I can say now already it is so flippin’ good! She said it is easier to apply eyeliner with this one and I have to say she was right. I have been applying liqued eyeliner to my eyes for years and years so I have no trouble with it, but even I can tell that with this one it’s just way easier. I like how thin the brush is because sometimes I really just want a thin line to be there in my lashline. Also thanks to the thin brush doing a winged look is so easy. I usually like felt tip liner for a winged look but this one works even better for that purpose. On top of that it is really black, which sometimes can be an issue with eyeliners. I think I have found my new fave eyeliner overall, if you haven’t guessed that already.

So last but by no means least is my new love the Selfie Lash. It is the prettiest mascara I have tried in a long time. It gives long voluminous lashes. It doesn’t clamp up at all and I really like the shape of the wand and the bristles, I feel like they coat every single eyelash. I think it gives very nice big lashes but not too overdramatic ones, but natural ones. Which I think look better. The formula is wet but not too wet that you can’t really use it and you need to wait for it to dry out a little as with some other mascaras. It feels like the perfect consistency and it works perfectly for the first time. I am really really impressed amd also so so happy with it.

So yeah as the title suggests I am in love with this collection. Even though I just put my make up on I can’t wait to remove it and apply it again tomorrow. I do honestly think these products stand out amongst all the other drugstore brands and I appreciate all the effort and work Tanya and her team put into these products because the results are just fab. Congrats Tanya Burr Cosmetics! I can’t say enough good things!

And lastly here’s a picture of me with my ready make up having used all the goodies mentioned above.

Easy spring/summer make up

PSX_20170512_105829

With the sun being more and more out, and the weather getting warmer it truly feels like it is finally spring and summer is not that far away. Which means you can pop a bit more colour in your make up routine and I wanted to show you a pretty easy and simple make up routine that is light and easy.

After cleaning my face, I use the Body Shop Vitamin E moisturizer, which has been a favourite of mine for the last couple of weeks. Then I apply primer first. I use Benefit Porefessionals primer, as it does a great job at hiding my giant pores on my cheeks. For foundation I have been using a more watery foundation, and that is the Maybelline fit me foundation in the shade 102. It is very easy to apply blends in very easy, and because it is more watery consistency then creamy, you can barely feel it on your face. Which is perfect for when it gets warmer outside.

For under my eyes, to cover up my dark circles, I have been using the Wonder Pencil by NYX. It  does a great job at hiding those dark circle and makes me look more awake and healthy. On top of this I use everyone’s fave concealer, the Collection Lasting Perfection one, in the shade fair. To finish off the base off my face make up , I’m setting everything with the Rimmel stay matte powder.

For my brows, I use the Natural collection eye shadow in crushed walnut. To start off my eye make up, I apply primer first. I use the NYX proof it! eye shadow primer. For my eye lids I’m using the Make Up Revolution palette, and taking the light brown shade for my crease and the lightest shade to cover all my lid. Since I want to go easy on the eye I’m only putting black eye pencil on my upper waterline. To finish off the eyes I use the new L’Oreal baby roll mascara which has become my new fave mascara. Gives such curls!

Now I go back to finish my base make up and for contour I use Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer, and for blush and highlight I use the Tanya Burr Cosmetics cheek palette in rosy flush.

For my lips I’m also using a new discovery, and that is the Maxfactor matte lipstick in the shade rose. Such a pretty pink shade for this time of the year.

So this is my easy spring/summer make up look. Hope you liked it and recreate it too!

3 fave mascaras

Ever since I started using make up, mascaras were my favourite things. They just make you pretty instantly, whether you’re wearing a full face make up or just simply mascaras, they are the one make up product it is hard to live without.

On my journey of discovering make up, I tried lots and lots of mascaras, always from the drugstore (although I can’t wait to splurge out on some high end mascaras, definitely want to try the Too Faced Better than sex mascara 😉 ).

My priorities when it comes to lashes are length and volume. The two things brands are sometimes find hard to offer in one product, but you can get lucky sometimes.

So here are my three faves at the moment, no order as I love them all equally. 🙂

Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara (£7.99)

I’m pretty sure everyone in the beauty community has heard of this mascara, and most of you probably  have tried it as well, so it won’t come as a suprise when I say that this is the best drugstore mascara I’ve ever tried. It lifts up my lashes, makes them super long, easy to apply, no clumps at all, just beautiful voluminous lashes that last all day. I don’t use an eye lash curler, just cuz I never felt the need for it and with this mascara I don’t think you need one as it keep your lashes up and lifted for the whole day.

Maybelline Push Up Drama mascara (£7.99)

This one is a recent find to be honest, but I fell in love with it the first time I used it. This mascara is also great, it gives you a lot of volume I find, and the little bristles on the want helps you to separate the lashes and reach even the tiny ones in the inner corner. Another reason why I love this mascara is, because I think it is perfect for the bottom lashes. I like my bottom lashes to be full to and sometimes even if I use a different mascara on the top I use this one on the bottom, just to get a little  bit more fullness.

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Reloaded mascara (£6.99)

Another well loved mascara in the beauty community. I love this mascara for every day use, when you just want to chill so no need for dramatic lashes. Easy to apply and gives you a full lashes. I love the effect it gives to my lashes. Although I do find you need a couple of layers to get the full effect, but that is only because I find my mascaras get used to the plastic wand and need time to adjust to brush wand that this wand has.

All in all these are my absolute faves at the moment, and I like mixing them up as the days come.

Hope all of you has a lovely day/evening. 🙂

Tanya Burr Cosmetics lipsticks review

First of all welcome back! I was taking a bit of a break from blogging for personal reasons but now I’m back and ready to roll again.

Second of all I have to apologize in advance for not getting all of of the the lipsticks, but I decided that I will only get the ones that I really like.

When I saw the pictures on Instagram that Tanya is going to release lipsticks I was beyond happy. I knew I could expect the best quality from her so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them as soon as I could.

So altogether I got four colours out of the six colours she released. The two shades that I didn’t get were just too corally toned for me and they just don’t suit me, so I don’t think I’ll get them, but nonetheless they are still very gorgeous shades.

wp-1483890461405.jpg

First of all I’d like to talk about the formulas. I have to say that they are my favourite lipstick formulas I’ve ever tried, they glide on very easily on the lips. I have to talk about the pigmentation as well, all the colours that I own are very pigmented, literally just one swipe of lipstick can give the full effect of the lipstick, but of course you can always layer it up (but you really don’t need to). It doesn’t say on the packaging and I haven’t heard Tanya mention it either, but they’re not supposed to be long lasting, however I find that they sit nicely on the lips for several hours and even with eating the lipstick only goes from the inner part of the lip.

I like the satin finish they have too. They not super shiny just a nice subtle sheen to them. They’re not tacky in any way and I’m very happy with the fact that they are not drying on the lips either.

So the first colour I got was the brightest colour of the bunch in the shade Central Park. It is a very bright almost berry pink shade. It is very pretty with just winged eyeliner and loads of mascara.

wp-1483890366518.jpg

The next one is a pretty red shade, which was perfect for Christmas time, under the name Big Kiss. I like that it is a little bit darker red with no coral undertone ( if you like more of a corally shade then I’d recommend the Wild Safari ) just a pretty red. I do wear lip liner with any red lipstick , but I tried it without and it doesn’t seem to be runny or easily smudged in any way.

wp-1483890737760.jpg

The third colour that I have is the lightest shade, Birthday Cake. ( can I just mention that I love the names Tanya gives to her products ). This light pink shade is right up my street as this kind of a pink/nude shade has always been my favourite. Definitely goes perfectly with smokey eyes, or with any heavy eye makeup.

wp-1483890461581.jpg

Last but not least, I think it’s safe to say that everybody’s fave shade Pink Cocoa is a favourite for a reason. The pretty dark pink nude shade is just perfect for every day wear. It is very flattering I find, and it goes with most eye make up and outfit too. I’d say if you’re on a  budget or not sure which shade to go for, try this one first. Pretty sure you’ll be satisfied 😉 .
