NYX soft matte lip creme-'Istanbul'

24 May 2016

Hello everyone, today's post is all about the NYX soft matte lip creme in ' Istanbul'. My friend Maddie (nice one mad) kindly gave this to me and I absolutely love it. The shade is the prettiest of pinks and isn't too bright and isn't too dark. I love the way this product feels on the lips as it doesn't dry out or go crusty after wearing it for a long period of time. It also lasts a pretty long time on your lips, id say around 2 hours before you have to re apply These retail at £5 and I think for the price these are amazing and such good quality. If your looking for dupes for the Kylie lip kits, they do some great brown nude shades too. 

Thankyou for reading! do you have any new shade recommendations that I could try? X

Review- The Balm*

20 May 2016

 Hello everyone, today's post is all about the Balm.I was lucky enough to receive these products from them a some months ago and I could not believe it when i opened the package! Its taken me a while to review them but I have finally got round to it. Thank you so much to the Balm for sending me these items I appreciate it so so much. 

Firstly, I received the Nude Tude palette* which I had wanted to try for such a long time, and If im honest, I feel like these eye shadows are so much more pigmented and buttery than the urban decay shadows, as much as I love them I think the Balm ones are highly under rated. All of the shades are so pretty and can be used for both day and night looks,

I also received the Mary Lou manizer* which was another product that I really wanted to try as I had heard so many good things about it. This is probably the best highlighter I have ever used, if your looking for a strong pigmented highlight this is the one for you.

I had never heard of the Instain blushes* before but Im so glad I was able to try one. This one is in the shade 'houndstooth' and is a really lovely mauve pink shade which is great for both summer and winter. You also dont need a lot of product as it goes a very long way.

The Time Balm concealer* is a great one if your looking for high coverage. I found that you need to warm it up a little in your hands before you use it to make it a little easier to blend but other than that, I love it, especially for when Im having a no make up make up day and I can just put this on my blemishes. 

Finally, I received one of their lipsticks in the shade 'mai billsbepaid'*. This shade I believe is very similar to MAC Velvet Teddy and is great if you love browny/ pink nudes. Personally I feel like these types of shades dont really suit me but mixed with more pinky shades I love it.

Thankyou so much for reading and also to the Balm for providing me with such a great range of products. xx
