Review: ELF - Mineral Lipstick

What they say ~ Now you can hydrate your lips and get a lasting soft color naturally! This nourishing blend of exotic oils, natural waxes, vitamins and plant extracts create the perfect moisturizing formula. The sleek lipstick has superior color payoff, glides easily onto lips, and is long wearing. Lips stay perfectly hydrated and soft throughout the day for no fuss, lip loving happiness. All our mineral makeup is 100% mineral based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.


What I say ~ This one is in the shade Barely Bitten and its a medium pink colour, it has a bit of a golden shimmer to it but not too much. Its moisturising and I like the colour. Almost like my own lips but a bit better.

Would I buy it again ~ I think I would buy this colour again.


What I say ~ This one is Cheerful Cherry and it is very pigmented. A deep colour, a warm red / burgundy colour. It is a lot darker than it looks on the website.

Would I buy it again ~ I might buy it again.

Review: Maybelline - Dream Mousse Bronzer


What they say ~ Achieve a beautiful, bronzed look with an amazing air-soft feel, one easy sweep of the finger! Air-whipped formula allows you to build up as much colour as you like. No fuss application. Wash off.

What I say ~ This is a wash off product and it does have a soft feel to it similar to the mousse foundation. This is another product I seem to have bought for no reason as I don't like wearing bronzers.

The problem I have with this is how shimmery, almost glittery it is. This shade seems to be quite dark against my fair skin although it does blend very easily.

Would I buy it again ~ Simple answer, no. I got it in a pound shop. Will I ever actually use it, not really!

Swatch: ELF - Pearl

What they say ~ This color-lock formula with chip resistant shield gives long lasting nail color with high shine. The aerodynamic bristle design glides color on flawlessly, while the quick dry formula gives perfect application every time. Key nutrients give nails that natural shine, infused with Vitamin E for stronger, healthier nails.

What I say ~ I do like the bottle, its quiet different with the dripping look. The above picture was with two coats. Its a nice enough nail polish, but I don't really like the colour.

Review: ELF - Professional Blending Brush

ELF Professional Blending Brush - I like this brush and use it every. I like how it is quite fluffy but slightly domed at the top of it, good for blending.

Review: Waitrose - Baby Bottom Butter

On to the review, this product is from Waitrose. It was about a year and a half ago when I got this product, and wanted to know why everyone was raving about it.

I have to say it is a very intensive moisturising product, I did try and use it on my face but it was too greasy for that and made me break out. I find it good for stretch marks and a similar product to the Palmers Coco butter.

Would I buy this again? I doubt it, its taken a long time to use up which is good I suppose although its just too intensive and doesn't soak in quick. I might buy it in the future to use on a baby's bottom but not on my skin!

3/10 (over hyped product)
