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.

Urban decay vice lipsticks

Urban Decay have recently released the Vice lipstick range featuring 100 shades, yes ONE HUNDRED. Imagine owning all of those! They come in 6 different finishes.

I have managed to get my hands on 5 of the most popular shades to show you.

This shade is in Mega matte

It is a very bright red with a matte finish and it really stands out. In my opinion every girl needs at least one red lipstick and I think red suits everyone!

This shade is in Mega matte

This is another matte one from the range, it is a very bright purple and I love it, I used to have my hair this colour! Purple is a colour not everyone would wear but it certainly will attract attention 😉 Not to sure if it clashes with my blue hair?!

Big bang

This shade is in Metallized

This shad is just WOW, I love it. It is pink and glittery metallic and when I wear it I feel like Barbie! It is such a girly glitzy shade and I love this finish, I am definitely going to look at more of the metallized range!

This shade is in Cream

This is a lovely deep pink shade and it appears very creamy. I really like the colour of this and would like to maybe try one a bit deeper too!

This shade is in Comfort matte

It is a great pinky nude colour. Everyone needs a good nude lipstick. I find with nude ones I tend to sway more towards to pink nudes rather than the brown nudes so this one is spot on!

I have always been a big fan of Urban Decay and all of the lipsticks in this range and great to apply and don’t dry out your lips at all. They are long lasting and well worth the money 🙂

Loving Nuskin products right now!

Nuskin is a brand I have tried before but there are so many other products they make and I wanted to try some more.


I have been using the above marine mud mask once a week for the last few weeks and it has made a big difference to my skin. I love doing face masks weekly and with this one you can really notice a difference. It draws out all the impurities and I noticed my blackheads on my nose weren’t so visible after using this. Going to try is on my shoulders next time as I suffer with spots on them, I wonder if this will help?!


I also tried a few make up products. The curling mascara in black, contouring lip gloss and replenishing lipstick in cha cha red. I find their make up range is very high quality and I very impressive.

The mascara was easy to apply and made my lashes look long and thick without clumping. Sometimes I curl my lashes but this time I didn’t and the mascara created a natural looking curl.

The lip gloss is a clear gloss and it left my lips looking very plump. It wasn’t sticky and I found it looked really shiny in the light 🙂

The lipstick is a nice brick red colour, it applied easily and left my lips feeling moisturised. It was quite long lasting and I really like this colour!

Have you tried anything from Illamasqua?

This is a brand that you see all over the internet, on peoples blogs, youtube, twitter etc. I thought it was about time to see if it lived up to the hype!


I tried shade Eurydice which is a bright pink. For colours like this I always put foundation over my lips firs as I feel the lipstick is then more true to shade.

It went on very easily and the colour is great. The formula felt moisturising and didn’t dry out my lips. I would definitely use this brand again 🙂

2true have recently become one of my favourite brands. They offer good quality make up at such a reasonable price. You may recognise their name from the stands in superdrug where their products can be as cheap as £1.99 each!

To create my look below I used these products:

WOW volume mascara in no1 black

Colour drench lipstick shade 5

8hr power lip colour in Uma

Pro bright touch concealer in no1 light

Brow fix no2 blonde

I would recommend if you haven’t tried any of their products yet that you pick some up next time you go shopping 🙂 you won’t be disappointed!

New lipsticks

I recently came across 2true in my local Superdrug. They have a great range of affordable cosmetics. The lipsticks are £1.99 each and I think they are great quality for this price!

From top to bottom:

Colour drench lipstick shade 6

Glossy wear lipstick shade 5

Matte lipstick shade 2

Matte lipstick shade 6

The colour drench range are very creamy and easy to apply. I think the shade I used would suit most people as it is a very nude shade with a rich formula. The glossy wear shade I tried was almost glittery as well as being glossy, it applied evenly and looked like I was wearing a sheen gloss but it wasn’t stick at all.

The matte lipsticks are very well pigmented. I love the shade 6 as it is a beautiful almost berry colour and shade 2 is a lovely barbie pink. I plan on getting my hands on some more shades and as they are so affordable there is no reason not to stock up on more 🙂
