MAC Cosmetics Ever Hip Lipstick Review and Lip Swatches

I guess a lot of you remember the Liberty of London Collection by MAC and the popular lipstick in Ever Hip(Cremesheen) which was sold out pretty fast and became a favourite of a lot of people, including myself.

Since now it is a part of the Fashion Flower collection which is in stores now, I though I would write about this beautiful lipstick. Mine is in a special design but now this lipstick is in a regular design.

This is how it looks like swatched with the flash and in natural light

YSL Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm and Burberry Lip Mist Sheer Lipstick

I already made a preview of the upcoming lipsticks in February and here are more details about Yves Saint Laurent and Burberry Lip Mists.

As you remember, I was most excited about the Dior Addict which I already tried and YSL Glossy Candy(£21), so I can’t wait for those to arrive!

Inside My Makeup Bag: Travelling Edition

I always like to see what other people take with them when they are travelling. I was away for about a week and this is what makeup I had with me. I did not plan to wear any makeup most of the time so this is why there are very few products.

I am not going to write a lot about the products as I already reviewed most of them.

1. Max Factor Second Skin Foundation. It is my favourite right now and I’ve almost used it up as you can see. Review.

2. Revlon ColorStay Under Eye Concealer. Review

3. BECCA Beach Tints in Watermelon and Grapefruit, I love these a lot. Review

4. Mini High Beam by Benefit.

5. MAC 217 and 239 eye brushes.

6. N07 Smokey Eye brush. This is one of my favourite, will write about it later.

7.Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir, my must have. Review.

8.Rouge Bunny Rouge Eyes

Neutrogena Deep Moisture Comfort Balm and Cracked Heel Foot Cream

After being really impressed with the Neutrogena’s Norwegian Formula Concentrated hand cream (just got the second one) I’ve decided to get some other products from the range. So I’ve got myself the Deep Moisture Comfort Balm and the Cracked Heel Foot Cream.

And these are nice, I like the smell and the texture but unfortunately, the body balm is not enough for my very dry skin. I guess I should try using the hand cream all over the body as I love the concentrated formula.

As for the foot cream,  although  my feet are not cracked, they  are kind of rough and this cream makes them softer just after I’ve used it. But I can’t say if the effect is long lasting since I gave it away to my grandma who is 70+ and who has a lot of problems with her feet. She told me that her feet are in a bit better condition after using this cream but since she used it only for 3 times I think it’s too early to talk about the healing but I will ask her about the results later.

So in general, these products are not bad especially for the price but the hand cream is definitely my favourite. I still want to try more Neutrogena products in the future so maybe you can share you favourites with me?
