Lisa Blur: lipsticks

Another new brand that I had not tried before is Lisa Blur. I got my hands on two of her Xtreme lipsticks.

Both lipsticks were so creamy to apply and they are highly pigmented so you only need a small amount for full coverage. The staying power is insane as well. What more could you ask for from a lipstick?!

Not shy is a beautiful pinky plum shade and Bar crawl is more of an aubergine purple. This particular range has 13 different shades to choose from and they are priced really reasonably at £15 each.

Sometimes lipsticks make my lips feel dry but these felt really nice on my lips, It didn't even feel like I had anything on them.

I am hoping to try some other products from this brand as I really an impressed so far.

Ufit

I was recently sent a few protein drinks to try out from Ufit. I had previously been making my own with powder and hadn't tried pre-mixed ones before.

Ufit

The three flavours I tried were: Chocolate, Iced latte and Vanilla. I would either have a protein drink after working out or have it as a meal replacement for lunch, they are very filling!

My favourite flavour had to be the chocolate one as it just tasted like chocolate milkshake. I think these are great to take to work or the gym and are really easy and convenient, so you don't have to faff around with your protein powder and milk/water trying to mix it without it being lumpy!

Need to get my hands on the strawberry one to try.

You can buy these in many different supermarkets or buy them in bulk online here.

Transformulas : Lip Volume

Want fuller lips but scared to have fillers/injections? This lip plumper is the next best thing!

Transformulas : Lip Volume

This was my results after my first use, taken only a few minutes apart:
Transformulas : Lip Volume

The top pic is with nothing on and the bottom pic is taken just after applying the lip volume. You can instantly see my lips look a lot fuller and not so chapped, especially my lower lip. I was really impressed by how quickly I could see the difference.

I would love fuller lips but due to an accident when I was younger, I have a lot of scare tissue in my top lip so wouldn't want to risk injections or anything.

It claims to make your lips smoother and softer by +60% and plumper by up to 40% in 30 days but you can see it working from the first use!

At £29.95 I think it is really affordable for what it is and a great alternative to lip fillers. I am going to continue to use it daily and see how good it really is :)

DHC: Olive body butter

Everyone needs a bit of luxury. With Mother's Day approaching us I wanted to share with you this beautiful DHC Olive body butter that I think would be a great gift.

DHC: Olive body butter

This body butter is packed with lots of great ingredients including shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, squalane and argan oil. It is so good for your skin and it soaks in really quickly, leaving you smelling good and feeling super soft!

All DHC skincare products are fragrance-free, paraben-free and suitable for sensitive which is great. They are so good for your skin and are such a lovely treat.

At £17 I think this is a really good price for a present and the packaging is just beautiful.

Know cosmetics : no dark shadows

I love trying new make up from brands I haven't tried before. I had seen a few reviews online for a brand called Know cosmetics and saw you can buy them in Superdrug

No dark shadows

No dark shadows is an under eye concealer that can also be used to highlight your face. It is available in two shades – Wow (rosy tone) and Pizazz (yellow tone). I love the fact it is waterproof too so it is great to wear in the summer when your face may get a little more oily. I often struggle in the warmer months and before you know it, your make up is sliding and creasing all over the place!

Top shade : Pizazz
Bottom shade : Wow

The formula is slightly creamy, they are easy to apply and it blends in well. You can customise the perfect shade by mixing the two if needed. I found Wow was the perfect shade for me!

No dark shadows

At £15 I think this is a pretty good price for a high quality concealer. I think it is always worth paying a bit more for something if it works better than a cheaper alternative.

Dollibox

I LOVE trying subscription boxes. It is a great way to discover new things that you wouldn't usually buy or thins you didn't even know were out there to buy!

I had seen a lot of people talking about Dollibox online so wanted to see what the hype was about.

Dollibox


Dollibox

In my February box there was:

Nip & Fab Glycolic fix daily cleansing pads
I have seen so many people raving on about these, I was really excited to give them a go. I really like having trial sizes of things before committing to full size/large pack. They left my skin feeling so amazing and I really noticed a difference after the second use of them. My skin didn't look so congested and looked a lot more glowing.

Miss Paisserie bath bake melt
This bath melt is super cute and looks too good to use! At the moment I am keeping it out on display in my bathroom and waiting to use it as a special treat :)

Dreamybath unicorn soap
I love unicorns, I wish they were real. This soap is just so cute and just like the bath melt, I can't quite bring myself to use it (sad, I know!). I really do love bath products but when they look that beautiful it is such a shame not to keep it.

Pro range professional make up brush
I love trying new brushes, and even better when you get one in rose gold!! I love the look of this brush and I love how nice it is to use. The one I received was an eyeshadow brush, there were 8 possible brushes you could have received.  

MUA lipstick
It is always good to try a new lipstick shade or brand and MUA was a brand I hadn't really tried much if before so I was quite excited to see if included in my box. It was a really bright red, so it currently matches my hair! The formula was nice and it lasted well.

As I only bought the 1 off box it was £10 plus postage, but like with most subscriptions, the longer you commit to it, the cheaper each box becomes. I think it is great value when you consider what is included and if you like something :)

I really liked that the box included a list of what was included and a bit more information about each product, as well as where to buy it from if you wanted to buy more.

Eye Candy 3-in-1 Mega Lash Serum Mascara with Fibres

I have used lash serums in the past to try and improve the look of my lashes. I have also used mascaras with fibres to try and build up thicker, longer lashes but I have never tried one that does both at once!

Eye Candy 3-in-1 Mega Lash Serum Mascara with Fibres

This new release from Eye Candy is the  3-in-1 Mega Lash Serum Mascara with Fibres. Not only by adding the fibres does it make your lashes appear longer and thicker but because it includes the serum, over time your lashes will naturally be more healthy and the fall out rate reduced.

Serums are really good for your lashes and since using them regularly my lashes seem to grow longer and look much fuller, but I always forget to apply it at night, so by using a mascara daily that contains it cut out hat step in my routine (as long as I wear mascara daily!). I am really glad someone has come up with this all in one amazing eyelash concoction ;)

Eye Candy 3-in-1 Mega Lash Serum Mascara with Fibres

It really does make a difference and even with just one coat (you can apply more for a more intense/dramatic effect!) my lashes look much better than when I wear just a regular mascara.

You can see the difference between wearing it and not wearing any mascara.

You can buy this in boots stores or online for only £19.99, which I think is a really good price as growth serums alone are usually £40+ and fibre mascaras are usually a lot more expensive than your standard one.

I would recommend you try this if you want to up your lash game ;)

iPhone charging case

One problem I always have, is that my phones battery is awful! Anyone that has an iPhone knows that to start with they are amazing, then after a bout a year the battery just doesn't last a whole day. I was carrying about an external battery pack and lead with me but I recently got my hands on a charging case to try.

iphone charging case

This case comes in different colours but I opted for the black, because I mean like, black goes with every outfit right?!

The case is currently on sale for £44.99 which may seem a lot of a case but it is the worlds thinnest charging case and a lot easier and cheaper than buying an external battery or getting your battery replaced!

iphone charging case

You can see it compared to my normal case, it really isn't much bigger. I had a charging case before but it was just so bulky I ended up not using it, but considering this is hardly bigger than a normal case it's pretty amazing.

You simply charge it until it is fully charged (there is a light indicator on the back), and then put your phone in it and when it needs more juice just press the little button and it will charge your phone.
