Say hey to 3INA, (pronounced Mee-Nah!) a guilt-free beauty brand which is vegan wherever they can be and they’re cruelty free as well as using recyclable materials in their packaging. So, all’s good so far, right? Plus, they’ve got super cute branding, an amazing range of products and colours and they sent me these gorgeous matte lipsticks to have a look at and I wanted to share them with you babes.
When shopping with my bestie this weekend we were looking for a lipstick for her and I introduced her to the world of long-lasting liquid lipsticks, something she hadn’t tried before so I thought I’d put together a little post all about how to find the perfect lipstick, from shade to formula and everything in between.
Clarins have got two beautiful new shades coming to their amazing Rouge Eclat lipstick range. They’re 21 Tawny Rose, a lovely brown/nude/pink and 22 Red Paprika, a dark orangey-red. These lipsticks are Clarins’ first age-defying formula which means they’re so moisturising and have really long-lasting colour. They have The Nutri-Youth Complex which boosts collagen and also has Vitamin E! They’re pretty great all round, check out the super-pretty new shades.
This protein jelly was really hard to mix and I felt like it was essentially normal jelly mix just with added protein powder and it was so lumpy even though I whisked it with a fork for at least 5 minutes. I popped it in the fridge for 2 hours like the packet said and it was totally set, super quickly. It set with a foamy/fluffy layer on top and the jelly was normal underneath it. I think it would be fine if it was mixed properly but it was really difficult to do. If anyone has any tips, let me know!
Burgundies, deep reds and raspberry hues are the only lip colours that we seem to be rocking in these chilly months (well apart from Kylie Jenner, but I bet you couldn’t get her to not wear nude lipstick if her life depended on it!) But, i’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m not a lipstick gal. I mean, I like it and I wear it from time to time but if I was given the choice between liquid eyeliner and a bold lip I’d go eyeliner every single time. Nonetheless, I decided it was probably time to inject some colour into my face every now and again as it’s not so easy to do with clothes this time of year! Let me present to you, my top three lip colours for autumn (hint, they’re all super easy to apply and low maintenance, hence why they’re my favourite!)
This was nearly the review that wasn’t. I nearly didn’t pick it up the other morning and try it as I’ve been waiting a few weeks for it to arrive due to warehouse issues and moving house and I’d kind of lost interest. They also don’t have the best branding and their website www.sheersense.com & social presence is pretty diabolical. You won’t have heard of them and I’m not sure about the branding and the name, but it’s such a shame because the product is really amazing. This is a truly honest review and I’m going to take you through my experience of using the product from hating it and wondering how on earth I could scrub it off before going to work to absolutely loving it and wishing that I had the whole range to try out.
So here’s a little round up of my #5DayLipstickChallenge where I challenged myself to wear 5 of my favourite lipsticks in my collection per day. It didn’t happen that I wore one day after day because I had other things on that wouldn’t let me but I completed my challenge! I did this because I’m rubbish with lipstick, I’m lazy and would happily do the rest of my face and leave my lips as they are. Bad beauty blogger. Must try harder. And I did! I really enjoyed wearing them actually and I’m definitely going to try and wear a lippy at least once a week! What do you think of my challenge? Would you do one? Is there a beauty product that you feel that you need to wear more? Let me know.
Recently, I’ve decided to create a little challenge for myself. A lipstick challenge of all things. I decided that I don’t wear lipstick enough, I’m definitely lazy with lippy, I’ll put it on once, if I do wear it at all, and then I won’t bother to reapply and it ends up looking a bit rubbish. So I decided I’d try and step out of my comfort zone a little bit and try and wear a nice bright lipstick (or lip product) every day for 5 days. Hence the 5 Day Lipstick Challenge. I’ll be documenting it on Instagram and I’ll do an update next week when it’s over, reviewing the lipsticks and letting you know how I got on!
I’ve been after this lip pencil for months now, I’ve wanted the perfect orangey red lipstick for so long and just couldn’t find what I wanted on the high-street which was making me frustrated! I was buying lipsticks and they just weren’t right, so I’d buy another one, telling myself I couldn’t afford the NARS one, but after all if I buy the perfect one I won’t need to buy any more, right?! Well this is the plan. Come back to me in a month when I’ve bought 3 new lipsticks…
This post comes to you courtesy of a pretty amazing boyfriend. Picked all by himself, bought all by himself, I had no idea this was going to land on my desk the other night all beautifully wrapped next to my cup of tea. Such a good boy.
MAC Sheen Supreme isn’t a line that I’ve even thought about trying, I haven’t strayed away from the usual bullet shaped packaging at all but this is a little beauty. In a gorgeous deep purple/red colour, Good to Be Bad is an amazing texture, buildable to a deeper colour and is actually really nice once it’s worn off too. After worn for an hour or so, drinking, talking etc, it was still looking really good, obviously it had lost it’s shine but there was a good stain left on so it didn’t look like it had worn off too badly! A plus point, meaning that you don’t have to worry about your lipstick 24 hours a day if you wear it like some.
