Ruby Cosmetics Hollywood Shimmer Red Lipgloss Review/Swatch


Today I am reviewing Ruby Cosmetics Hollywood Shimmer Red Lipgloss(£9.99) which I have been sent very kindly to review on my blog. I have also review Ruby Cosmetics Picture Perfect Brows which you can find here, it is amazing brow kit and very easy to use and gives perfect shaped beautiful brows. I am so obsessed with red and pink lipsticks and lipglosses. I think these shades quite suit to my skin tone. Ruby Cosmetics Hollywood Shimmer Lipglosses come in three shades Brown, Pink and Red.

I love the classy packaging of this lip gloss. It looks gorgeous with nice silver design on cap. There is no gimmicks with the wand, a simple sponge applicator which makes application effortless. This lipgloss has lovely mild scent like orange candy. The texture is just right and glides smoothly onto lips. It does not feel sticky on lips. This lipgloss is not that pigmented on my lips it comes as mixture of brown, maroon and orange but not red. In swatch I swiped 2-3 times but did not get red colour same like in tube. When it layered over a red lipstick, it adds a nice depth of tone along with gorgeous glassy shine.

The silver shimmer is quite fine and evenly dispersed throughout the product, feeling quite smooth when worn. These shimmer particles are not really visible unless you’re looking very closely and that too under broad sunlight. It easily lasts on me for around 4 hours which is great staying time and even after it has faded, it leaves a stain behind and looks as though I am wearing a sheer lipstick. All in all, it is a nice lip gloss shade for every day wear. It makes my lips look slightly fuller too.

Lip Smacker’s Coca Cola Lip Balms Review


Today I am going to review Lip Smacker’s Coca Cola Lip Balms(£5.00) which I have been sent very kindly to try and review on my blog. As you may know I am lip balm sucker, I have loads of lip balms in my collection and I always want more and love to try new ones. This lip balms honestly taste like you have smeared the drinks across your lips. They are less stickiness and more like balminess. Lip Smacker has very huge Lip Balm Collection, when I say huge it is really very very huge. They have Original, Coca Cola, Disney, Dr Pepper and Candy Shop collection in their lip balm range. Their whole collection looks very cute and so adorable.

The three balms I have been sent from Coca Cola range are Coca-Cola Classic, Coca-Cola Cherry and Coca-Cola Vanilla. All the lip balms have awesome cool design and packaging. They twist nicely. Packaging is very sturdy and travel friendly. When I open the lid it gives nice smell of coca cola. Feel like to smell them over and over. All the lip balms glide smoothly on lips and not sticky at all that’s the thing I look for while buying lip balms.

When I apply Coca Cola Classic lip balm I feel so tempted as it actually smells like fizzy Coca Coca. The smell is nearly identical to the original smell of Coca Cola. This lip balm apply very smoothly on lips and it makes lips soft and smoother and add nice subtle shine to your lips. This lip balm is not tinted, when I saw it first time I thought this would be a tinted balm and would apply on lips as bit of brown but it is clear on lips. Coca Cola Cherry smells really sweet so if you like sweet smell then this is the balm for you to try from this range. This lip balm is slightly tinted and it is very sheer and subtle. It just makes your lips more pink/red than normal. Cherry lip balm also glides smoothly and not sticky on lips. Coca Cola Vanilla lip balm I just loved it. It has mixed smell of the classic and cherry lip balms and scent of this balm is just so lovely. This lip balm again feels so soft on lips and it is moisturising.

All the three lip balms stay on for a while pretty much like any of the normal basic lip balms and keeps your lips moisturized. If you have dry lips I think it won’t work. I also use this lip balms as base before I apply my lipstick and it adds nice soft shine to my lips and also my lipstick glides very smoothly on my lips. This lip balms are really fun products to use and play! This pack of three lip balms is a nice little gift and they are pretty similar to each other and they smells differently and the cherry flavour having a slight tint to it and it is very subtle and otherwise they are clear. This lip balms are not matte finish, you get a slightly glossy pout and they are not sticky at all. They leave your lips with a sweet scent of soda that is not overpowering and also keeps your lips soft and smooth.

Overall I am quite happy with this balms and they are so adorable and I love to keep them in my handbag as they look so different from other lip balms and I am sure when you get it out of your bag lots of people will be curious to know what you have got that tube thing in Coca Cola. If you find them somewhere in store I think you shall grab them as they will be a nice cute little treat for you.

You can buy Lip Smacker’s Lip Balms from Superdrug and Claire’s store.

Dr.PAWPAW Original Clear Balm and Tinted Ultimate Red Balm Review


Today I am going to review Dr.PAWPAW Lip Balms which I have been sent very kindly to try and review on my blog. I have heard so much about Dr.PAWPAW lip balms but never tried them. So when I was given chance to try them I was really excited as I am really obsessed with lip balms. I have been sent Dr.PAWPAW Original Clear Balm (£6.95) and Dr.PAWPAW Tinted Ultimate Red Balm (£6.95). Dr.PAWPAW is 100% British made multi-purpose balm with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. The smooth, long-lasting formula combines the soothing properties of fermented Pawpaw with other natural ingredients to create a nourishing formula, which comes in a handy 25ml tube.

Dr.PAWPAW Balm Ingredients and Benefits:

Carica Papaya – This nutrient-rich fruit is full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It contains calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, vitamins A and C and acetogenins which, when applied externally, helps in aiding skin repair, adding moisture and smoothing and tightening the skin.

Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil – Olive oil has a variety of benefits for skin and hair, due to its vast amount of antioxidants. Olive Oil contains Vitamin A and E but the most potent compound is Hydroxytyrosol. This rare antioxidant prevents free radical damage on skin cells and is absorbed deeply into the skin. It has many anti-inflammatory properties and is great for dry skin and hair.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice – A desert plant with amazing abilities to absorb and restore moisture. It contains more than 200 different plant constituents that promote glowing, youthful looking skin and hair.

Dr.PAWPAW Lip Balms come in squeezy tubes and they are handbag friendly. I love the bold colourful packaging of this lip balms and they really look cute. Dr.PAWPAW comes in three different colours – Original Clear, Tinted Pink Peach and Tinted Red. They are fragrance free. They retail at £6.95 each, there is a 3 for 2 offer too. The product is quite thick and sometimes I struggle to get the product out of the tube. I have to roll the tube in between my palms to warm it.

Dr.PAWPAW Lip Balms are a multipurpose balm used for your lips, skin, cuticles, nails and hair. The original balm is great for lips, cuticles and nails. I have been using original lip balm on my lips and cuticles and it really makes them soft and smooth. The red tinted lip balm colour is like blood but on lips it turns into a sheer tomato colour so it does not look exactly same as product. The tinted lip balm I tried applying as a cheek blush but I find it kind of sticky. It did not completely absorb into the skin. So I love to use it on my lips only. These lip balms hydrate, protect and soothe your lips. You can carry tinted lip balm in your handbag and apply it throughout the day to add lovely colour to your lips. This tubes going to last very very long time as you just need a little product to apply.

As I only have my ears pierced I made my choice with some beautiful and funky stud earrings which I like to wear them with shorts and other funky outfits.

A little bit about Karma Se7en Body Jewellery……………Karma Se7en started out in the body piercing and body jewellery world back in the 90’s with the opening of Harrow’s (London -England) first body piercing studio. They have also trained many piercings students to become professional body piercers who went on to open their own body piercing studios throughout London and the UK. Their Our own studio became so popular they had to extend their opening hours and add 2 extra studios to be able to service all the returning customers and their friends.

They offer a wide range of products with great budget friendly prices for all your body piercing needs. They also have offer like ‘Buy One Choose One Free’, how amazing it is! If you are fancy about Gold, Diamond & Gemstone body jewelleries then Karma Se7en is one stop to buy them in reasonable price as Karma Se7en manufacture all their Gold and Diamond Body Jeweller in the UK by hand and have incorporated it with a Bioflex stem to keep the cost down for consumers, but also to create an ‘invisible’ effect to really show off the gold and diamonds to its fullest. Browse their website and you can find ear piercings and ear stretching jewellery barbells, labret studs, navel jewellery, nose studs, tongue bars etc.

The stud earrings I have been sent, can be worn in all standard size ear piercings and those are suitable for both children and adults. Each earring comes in a cute little gift box(see above picture). Each of their earrings is made from top quality sterling silver and has a standard 0.8mm stem so there are suitable for all standard ear piercings. The handy butterfly clip also makes them very secure and simply to fit.

LipGlam Natural Lanolin Lip Balm Review


Recently I have been sent LipGlam Natural Lanolin Lip Balm to try and review on my blog. This lip balm is the multifunctional moisturizer. This natural lip balm is made of lanolin and makes your lips soft and provides 8 hours long hydration. LipGlam is 100% natural and specifically developed to soothe sensitive skin. It can also be used for dry skin relief and is proven to reduce skin roughness by 40%. Simple, natural and indulgent, LipGlam makes it easy to have soft, beautiful lips every day. The lip balm can also be used on cuticles, dry patches of skin, eyebrows and split ends

LipGlam’s key ingredient is lanolin, a natural emollient extracted from sheep’s wool. Lanolin is one of nature’s finest oils, holding moisture in the skin for deep hydration. We blend it with natural botanicals, resulting in a readily absorbed balm that replenishes instantly. LipGlam leaves your lips soft and dewy, with an instant plumping effect. It revitalizes your skin’s natural barrier and resistance to environmental toxins. By optimizing your natural defenses, it reactivates inner radiance and ensures a healthy glow.

LipGlam Natural Lanolin Lip Balm comes in a white tube with gold design on tube and it has gold lid. The packaging of this product is very much attractive to me. It holds 12ml of product and costs only £9.99. LipGlam comes with slanted tip that makes it easy to apply as a lip balm. The consistency of this lip balm is very thick and you need to rub it between fingers to get it useable. If the tube is cold then you should either warm it in hands or put it in hot water for 60 seconds. Once it is warm then it is very easy to apply.

The actual color of the product is bit yellow but it applies clear and melts on the skin. It is fragrance and flavour free. I have been using it for few days and I find it very useful and it is really multi tasking. It makes my lips more silky and soft. It is really long-lasting even after drinking. I have also used it on my knees and elbows, this lip balm leaves them feeling soft. If you apply it to a large area then I think it can feel a bit tacky but you can always mix it with your hand cream or lotion.

I thought to apply it on my eyebrows just to test it, the effect of it was pretty good, my eyebrows were looking really on point though. I have not tested it as mascara primer and for split ends as I don’t have split ends. I really love to use it on my lips as a balm and primer. I found that my lipstick is lasting bit longer if I apply this balm as a primer. This lip balm is not sticky at all.

So, you can use it 7 ways! This is a product that will make your skin softer and dewy! It’s an excellent lip balm, it lasts ages, it is really moisturising and it looks natural. So I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
