Carmex Moisture Plus SPF 15 Hydrating Lip Balm in Sheer Pink Review and Swatches

I am sure that most of you are familiar with the original, and cult, Carmex balms. And today I want to show you the Carmex Moisture Plus SPF 15 Hydrating Lip Balm. It comes in three variations: clear, sheer pink and sheer coral.

I have the one in Sheer Pink.

Although the packaging is nothing exciting the main things is the product inside, right?

You can definitely feel a  tingling sensation  once you apply the product which I personally quite like, especially in the summer. This balm is hydrating and nourishing, indeed. In fact, I have asked some of my friends to try it, as well, to give me their opinion, and they all agreed.

As for the colour, it

Paul & Joe Lip Gloss in Lustre: Review and Lip Swatch

I’ve realized that I don’t post  that many information and reviews about Asian and Australian brands.  I will try to pay more attention to them and also to get more things for myself in the future.  And we will start today with Paul and Joe.  Although I came across a lot of reviews on the blogs that I read I’ve never been a fan of the brand for some reasons.

Sabrina has the best reviews about this brand on her blog The Beauty Look Book. She already has photos of summer collection so if you are a fan of  Paul & Joe – don’t miss it.

When I saw that Zuneta has a discount on these beautiful glosses I understood that it’s time to get some for myself. They were  only £ 8.18 instead of £ 14.30 so I had to get them. At first I wanted to get all of them but eventually got only one “just to try”

Look how beautiful they are

“When you spread this lip gloss onto your lips, you won’t notice a heaviness , as with other glosses. This plumping, thickening gloss glides on your lips with perfect smoothness. Once it’s on, it adheres firmly and adds an extra dimension that lasts and lasts.

001 Byzantine: A cool, sexy shade of brown and gold

002 Bullion: Bright yellow and gold with a luxurious shimmer

003 Lustre: Charming shades of pink and gold that project twinkling lights.”

So what is my opinion about the gloss?

Probably I am thinking stereotypes   but for me all (well almost all) makeup that is made in Japan = good quality.  But if to talk about this gloss

Benefit ChaCha Tint Review, Photos and Swatches

After playing with my new ChaCha Tint for some time I can finally write my thoughts about the product.

It should be available here very soon now, but it’s already available in the US for $29 (for 12.5 ml). I’ve asked my friend to get me this set which was an amazing deal in May.

To tell the truth, I didn’t even plan to get the ChaCha Tint, as I  want to get try the Posie Tint finally but I couldn’t miss such a great deal since I was getting some products from the US back then anyway.

I have to say that I really regret that I never ordered this set, I have no idea what I was thinking about.

But back to the ChaCha Tint… I really like the  design and the package, it is so Benefit and looks great for summer.

It is described as a mango-tinted stain for lips and cheeks and  I agree with the description. It’s just a shame that it doesn’t smell like mango, too.

I know that that the formula is compared to the Posie Tint and according to swatches I can also see some similarities. But, as I have only Benetint, I can say that ChaCha has a thicker and more gel-like consistency.

The colour looks really intense in the bottle and it really is, so you have to blend it out really well, especially if you have a fair skin like I do. I assume that it would look great on the  dark skin tones and I can’t wait to try it on tanned and dark skin tones.

How to apply it?

As it is a stain, I would recommend

Lanolips Lip Ointment in Rhubarb and Dark Honey Review and Swatches. Rave

I know so many women obsessed with Lanolips, and rightly so!  And don’t forget the numerous awards…

These are the lip balms that contain 60% Ultra Medical Grade Lanolin,  natural oils, shea butter and Vitamin E and they are truly wonderful. I’ve included them in my December favourites, but this is the second winter I am using/loving these balms actually. So, I have no idea how I never wrote a proper feature.

Lanolips Lip Ointment in Rhubarb and Dark Honey Review and Swatches

The balms come in sheer plastic tubes with a golden lid and a cute sheep, I also like the simple design and the fronts used.

As for the product itself, Lanolips feel nice (like a thick lip balm) and soothing on, I personally love them in colder months as they protect the lips perfectly and they do work when it comes to chapped lips.  They also contain SPF15 which is a great bonus.

You can get a clear option or with fruity scent but I have the tinted ones. There are five colour options to choose from and

A Week in Lipsticks

Recently I was talking a lot about lipsticks with some girls I work with, and this inspired me to wear a different shade each day for a month. I wear the same ones over, and over again but considering how many I have it was about time to change my habit.  So here are the ones I wore last week…

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania (lip swatch)

I am obsessed with it, as you may know, I have to stop myself from wearing it every single day. It is the most perfect vampy (Hey, Drac! yes, I absolutely had to do it) shade.  Whenever I wear it – I am always asked about it. The formula is not too drying and can be applied evenly.  This is the most affordable product from the selection and there are tonnes of other colours in the line.

Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss in Boost (review and lip  swatch)

Technically this is not a lipstick but, as the name suggests, it is pretty intense when layered so I’ve included it, too. It smells of sweets, feels moisturising on and is the most unique shade out of these all, a violet with a blue base, so beautiful.
