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
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
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.
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.
As it is a stain, I would recommend
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.
This is my ultimate
The product that I really love is Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (£30). It is absolutely huge, comes in a nice packaging and with a decently sized mirror. You get three shades of bronzer with one being shimmery and two – matte, there is also an apricot blush. You can use each shade individually, or mix. The texture of the blush is softer than the texture of the bronzers so when products are mixed together they give you that nice luminous glow and created that sun-kissed effect. This bronzer actually made it to my monthly favourites.
Although I have pretty light skin tone, I don’t find it to be muddy or too orange on me. But I use it lightly, obviously.
I think Blush & Bronzing Compact is a
