Hey gorgeous girls,
A few months back I managed to pick up Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the super bright red shade called Outlaw which I got from Love Me Beauty, a fab monthly beauty subscription box which allocates 60 points each month. Unlike other sub boxes Love Me Beauty allows you to choose your own high end products. The everlasting liquid lipstick cost me 20 points so I still had 40 points to spend on other products. The monthly subscription is £10 + £2.95 p&p and you can also buy add on points. If you’d like to sign up to Love Me Beauty, use my promo code ‘KATY99737822’ to get £21 worth of LMB credits to spend on whatever you like. You also get a different make-up bag every month.
The packaging of the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is very pretty, I love the floral detailing on the lid. The lipstick itself is a gorgeous rich red colour with slight orange undertones and it is a good quality, highly pigmented, full coverage shade that seriously stays put.
It glides on the lips like a silky, creamy lipgloss and quickly dries to a matte finish. It is enriched with natural moisturisers including vitamin E and sunflower seed wax. Best thing is the lipstick is suitable for vegans and 100% cruelty free which is great. I love it.
Hey sexy ladies,
I’ve another teeth whitening product review for y’all, this time it is some teeth whitening strips which I’m relatively new to as I always favour my whitening gels and tend to use them the most. The whitening strips I have been using are from a company called Whiter Smile and there is 14 sachets included in the box and each includes an upper strip and a lower strip in each foil packet. After reading the instructions and placing the strips over dry teeth – they should then be left on for 30 minutes.
Before applying, I had to make sure my teeth were bone dry so the strips would stick to my teeth, first time I used them I forgot to wipe and dry them and the strips would not stick so I had to open a new sachet. I found them very easy to use and apply with the trickiest part being keeping my teeth dry from saliva before applying them. Everything else, no probs.
The strips don’t taste bad at all and they have a slight minty taste when they are on the teeth. After using the strips twice a day for one week my teeth are noticeably whiter by a shade or two. The strips are gentle on enamel and peroxide free so I did not feel any tooth pain, sensitivities or gum irritation whilst using and after using. Because they are peroxide free they don’t work at whitening teeth as quick as peroxide based gels although they do work and I found them to be much gentler on teeth, enamel and gums too which makes these strips perfect for those with sensitive teeth or those who don’t have heavily stained or discoloured teeth who are looking to go a shade whiter.
The strips gently and gradually whiten teeth compared to the very fast whitening results and often enamel damaging that peroxide gels have. I was actually surprised at how well these worked and I would defo buy them again. I think the strips would come in handy when you’re in a rush or on the go as they are quite transparent and invisible so can be worn whenever and wherever so I love them for that reason alone. I seen slight results after the first results but by day 2 and 3 I saw a huge difference. My teeth are quite white anyway but as I have ran out of my usual gel they were in need of a top up and I was happy with the results of the strips. I will be buying my gels again but I will certainly use these strips again when my. Teeth need a little brightening so my enamel doesn’t suffer from unnecessary damage.
So, finally I would recommend these for those with slight discolouration as they have made my teeth appear clean, glossy and white but if you have heavily stained or really yellow teeth I recommend Denivit toothpaste and Dr Collins Whitening Gels as I don’t think these strips would give you the results you want. Alongside the strips I have been using Denivit anti-stain and whitening toothpaste as well as brushing my teeth and pulling with activated charcoal so I think all three have worked amazing together.
