Review & Swatches: NYX – Turnt Up Lipsticks – Priviliged, Beam, Twisted & Burlesque

You dolls will already know that I have a keen eye for a bargain so I jumped at the chance when I seen these Turnt Up Lipsticks from NYX in my local B&M Store. I got the shades Priviliged, Beam and Twisted in a 3-piece set for about £3.99 and the Burlesque one was £2 odd. They had lots of other shades to choose from too but I chose the shades that I thought would suit my skin tone.

ABOUT: ”Speak volumes with a bold swipe of Turnt Up! Lipstick. Go as soft or get as loud as you like using our wide range of 22 statement-making shades. From chic nudes to deep vampy hues, these lightweight and creamy lippies glide on effortlessly. Leaving lips with a kiss of shine and high-impact color you can count on for an unforgettable look.” – NYX

BURLESQUE #20

Burlesque is a deep wine, burgundy, berry shade and I actually like it . It’s not something I would wear of a day but it would look great for a night out or whenever you are getting dolled up and want to look vampy. It is a staple autumn/winter shade and is a dark, red purple-ish colour that is so pigmented and one swipe gives high impact colour. I did find it stained the lips though and it transferred so bad – it was everywhere but a blot with a tissue sorted it out and stopped it from transferring as much.

TWISTED #08

This shade really surprised me, I did initially think this bright violet-purple colour would look awful on my lips but I actually like it and it is probably my favourite shade out of the four I picked up – I’ve worn this shade a couple of times already and it is a little bright for day wear but I wear it anyway and it would definitely look amazing on a girls night out. . I LOVE it, it’s so wearable, looks pretty and it’s so pigmented and gorgeous. If mermaids wore lipsticks this Twisted shade would be it.

PRIVILEGED #03 

Privileged is a gorgeous hot pink shade which is super girly, bright and fun. A perfect colour for spring and summer. I rarely wear bright pink lipsticks as I prefer my reds but this is a colour I will definitely wear on a night out. Like burlesque this does transfer a lot and it does stain the skin a little.

BEAM #07

Beam is a neon, fluorescent,bright pinky-coral shade and it has a slight shimmer too. It is so pretty. I wear this of a day and I do really like it. It doesn’t look as shiny as the other three shades and it looks a little chalky but I do like it and it’s my second fave out of the four that I picked up. It’s so pretty and will look amazing in spring and summer against tanned skin. My pics below really don’t do this colour justice – it is so much brighter in the flesh.

Thoughts:

I do like these Turnt Up Lipsticks and I love that there are 22 shades to choose from. The packaging of the lipsticks is okay I guess – they are small little black tubes with white writing on and they have clear plastic lids so you can see the lipstick – the lids do fall of easily though so be careful if placing in your make-up bag, pockets or handbag as they will stain fabric. The lipsticks have a slightly slanted tip making them easy to apply and they have a super creamy formula which applies smoothly and doesn’t feel drying on the lips – it actually feels like you are wearing a lip balm or chapstick and they have a lovely, mild, sweet scent sweet too. They leave a gorgeous shine on the lips and the colour is so intense and pigmented to say they are quite cheap to buy. These do transfer a lot so I do blot with tissue when wearing which prevents them from spreading onto the skin as much, but they really do get everywhere –  I smoke so when I have a cigarette the lipstick transfers all over my fingers and they stain the skin too especially the burlesque shade so keep this in mind before buying. Blotting does help a little. I do like these lipsticks though and I will definitely buy them again – I have my eye on shades Flutter Kiss, Rockstar and Hollywood for next time.

DisclosureI bought these with my own money.

Where To BuyI got mine from B&M – you can also get them on the NYX website here for £6.50.

Review: Rodial – Suede Lips Lip Crayon – Big Apple

I got this Suede Lips lip crayon from Rodial in my September Glossybox and this is the first time I have ever owned one of their products so I was very happy to receive it in my box. I was sent a 2.4g lip crayon in the shade Big Apple which retails at £22 on Rodial’s website. For those who don’t know about the brand, Rodial is a high-end skincare & make-up brand founded by international beauty journalist – Maria Hatzistefanis. Rodial sell a wide range of products including skincare, make-up, body-care and gorgeous little gift sets and so far I’m liking the brand.

ABOUT: ”Saturate your lips with intense pigmented colour with an on-trend matte finish with our Suede Lip jumbo crayon. The long-lasting, non-drying formula is enriched with Vitamin E and has a creamy texture, allowing colour to glide on effortlessly for smooth looking lips with a pop of colour. Inspired by the confident, independent city woman, Big Apple is a beautiful soft burgundy berry colour to add a touch of sophisticated colour for a night out with the girls.” – Rodial

123

VERDICT: On first impressions I did think the Big Apple shade would be too dark against my pale skin as it is a rich dark-nude, burgundy/brown colour with berry tones but I absolutely love it and it has become my fave lip colour these last few weeks and I’ve been wearing it every day instead of my all time fave Kat Von D ‘Studded Kiss lipstick in shade Magick, The colour is gorgeous, not too ‘in your face’ but not a boring colour either. I love it and it is not as dark as I first thought it would be and it really compliments my skin tone.

800VBNM

I love the creamy texture and how it glides easily over the lips leaving a true matte finish and I didn’t find it sticky or greasy either. It stays put for hours too although I did find it to be a little drying on my lips which I’ve found quite common with matte lipsticks. My lips are always dry and chapped at this time of year so before I apply the lip crayon I make sure to moisturise my lips with my Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm to keep them hydrated and soft.  I use the tip of the crayon to line my lips and I then fill in the rest with the crayon. The only downfall is there isn’t enough product in the crayon so it won’t last very long. As you can see from my photo’s I’m nearly used up but, I really do love the colour and I’m really liking the Suede Lips collection so I will defo be looking at the other shades to see what I can buy next – I just wish there was more product in the packaging.

DISCLOSURE: I received this product in my Glossybox subscription box which I pay for with my own money.

WHERE TO BUY: You can get it HERE on the website for £22.

Kat Von D – Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Outlaw

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.

c__data_users_defapps_appdata_internetexplorer_temp_saved-images_16999173_10211829283471853_6324890760539787112_n

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.

Review: Ultra Glam Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard 👄

 

 

Hi Glitter Dolls!

These past few weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of trying a couple of gorgeous glitter shades from Beauty Boulevard’s Glitter Lips collection. I love anything and everything that sparkles and glitters – so you can imagine how much fun I’ve had blingin’ my lips up!


👄 Ultra Glam 👄

Today is all about the flirty, fabulous and fluorescent shade known by the name ‘ULTRA GLAM’ which is a vivid lilac colour with subtle lavender tones and the slightest shimmer of gold.

WP_20150114_04_00_51_Pro

Out of all the shades I have previously reviewed – ‘Ultra Glam’ is by far the brightest, most daring and eye-catching colour I’ve had on my lips. It is definitely a Glitter Lips shade for the super confident who like their lip colour to be as bold and vibrant as their personality! If this sounds like you, then girlie… ‘Ultra Glam’ is your colour.

The gorgeous neon lavender colour will look amazing teamed with kohl or liquid liner and voluminous black lashes. It would brighten up a little black dress beautifully too – adding a pop of colour to your outfit!


Here’s how ‘ULTRA GLAM’ looks on the lips! 😍

WP_20160119_15_12_43_Pro


The entire collection of the Glitter Lips shades are waterproof, smudge proof, kiss proof and party proof! Basically – everything proof!! You could binge-drink as many rosé wines as you want, eat like a pig, snog all night long and party hard like a rock star and the glitter will not budge. Did I mention slobber proof?… Yep… Ha! For you droolers out there – you could sleep like a baby for a week and your lips will stay glitter-licious. No sh!t.

The gloss bond has absolutely amazing staying power – unlike any other lipsticks. EVER!

Cherry Pie – Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard ❤

Hello Girls! 😘

As you know, I’ve done a few posts in the past about Glitter Lips by Beauty Boulevard. Everytime I try a new shade of theirs, I have a new favourite Glitter Lips, ha. I’m such a snide off!

Well there was one shade that I didn’t really FAVE much. I’ll be honest – Diamond In The Buff really wasn’t my colour, I thought my complexion was much too pale for it.

But the other shades… LOVE!

6tag_190116-105254

My favourite was ‘Ruby Slippers’ for quite a while but when I tried ‘Molly Dolly’ that became my favourite instead! 😂

Well girls, my new favourite Glitter Lips shade is now ‘Cherry Pie’ 😍. I cannot cope with how pretty it is. It’s definitely the sexiest Glitter Lips shade that I have tried so far.

6tag_240116-063633

First impression – before I put it on, I thought the ‘Cherry Pie’ glitter dust was similar to ‘Ruby Slippers’ in colour, just a little more pinky. When I tried it on though, it was deep pink with slight speckles of purple shining through when any light hit my lips.

6tag_240116-063525

I fell in LOVE with it straight away. ❤ It’s kind of pinky, purple, almost plum/ maroon and it reminds me of the Autumn/Winter ‘shades’ of lipstick that make your lips look ‘wine stained’, only with glitter added! I’d say it was more gothic than the other shades I’ve tried but still very pretty and girly.

6tag_240116-063552

‘Cherry Pie’ is a very glamorous colour and would look fab on all skin tones.

Pale or tanned. ❤

Here’s How It Looks on The Lips!

Now, because I have done three Glitter Lips reviews on my blog already, I thought I would not include the ‘how to apply and remove’ bit on this post as I feel like a parrot! 😂

Vintage Pretty – Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard ❤

Hey Glitter Dolls ❤

In this post I’ll be showing you the gorgeous shade ‘Vintage Pretty’ from Beauty Boulevard’s Glitter Lips collection. ❤

6tag_240116-074910

When I first saw the Vintage Pretty glitter dust, I weren’t sure how it was gonna look when it was applied as it was kinda two toned. But, when I put it on it was a lovely soft pink colour and super pretty. ‘Vintage Pretty’ is another one of my favourite Glitter Lips shades along with three others.

I mean come on… look how gorgeous it is! 😍

6tag_240116-075046

‘Vintage Pretty’ definitely lives up to its name. It looks darker in the pot than it does on the lips though. Think shabby chic, coral and dusky pink!

6tag_240116-075355

Although it’s still an eye-catching shade, it isn’t an in your face colour, so will be perfect for anyone who wants a pretty but toned down look or for girls who prefer a lighter shade rather than a bright one.

It’s just fab! I love it. ❤

6tag_240116-075630

This is how it looks on the lips!

Molly Dolly | Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard ❤

Hey Sexy Ladies 😉

If you’ve never tried Glitter Lips by Beauty Boulevard, you’re seriously missing out. Glittery lips are perfect for festivals, nights out with the girls or for adding extra wow factor to fancy dress costumes. You will definitely get a-lot of attention when wearing the sparkly Glitter Lips!

A few days ago, Beauty Boulevard kindly gifted me FOUR more different shades of Glitter Lips to try out! Do you know how happy I am right now! I nearly had a heart attack when the Postman delivered them, they are so bloody FAB and pretty!

 

6tag_190116-105254

I ❤ Glitter Lips

I’ve already tried the super glamorous shades ‘Ruby Slippers’ and ‘Diamond In The Buff’ in the past and lots of you loved how gorge they were. As a red lippie kinda girl. – Ruby Slippers was an instant fave of mine!!

I now have the shades Ultra Glam, Vintage Pretty, Cherry Pie and Molly Dolly to try out this week! So keep those pretty eyes peeled for my reviews!

Over the next few days I’ll be reviewing each one, but today I’m going to show you the gorgeous pink-a-licious shade known as ‘Molly Dolly’.

What’s Molly Dolly Like?

If Barbie wore Glitter Lipstick – Molly Dolly would definitely be her favourite Glitter Lips colour !

6tag_190116-142914

The Molly Dolly glitter dust is kind of fluorescent pink and looks JUICY and PRETTY and GIRLY and GORGEOUS and FABULOUS when applied. It has a kind of neon pinky/purple sheen to it too but looks very Barbie PINK on the lips! Lush. ❤

I must mention also how pretty the Glitter Lips box is. I love how the glitter dust sits underneath the love heart shape making a beautiful pink heart. So pretty! 😍

6tag_210116-063650

Applying Glitter Lips

To get gorgeous glittery lips you will need to make sure you’re lips are a blank canvas. Glitter Lips will need to be applied to clean, dry lips to achieve best results.

Apply the Glitter Lips gloss bond to your lips – making sure to apply it neatly, especially along your lip line. ❤

Remember: Wherever the bonding has been applied – the glitter will stick to it.

Once the gloss bond has turned from white to see-through, dab the glitter onto your lips, sparingly and gradually at first then build up to achieve the desired glitter effect. ❤

There you go! It’s very easy to apply! 😊

TIP: You could also use a lip liner in a shade near to the glitter colour you have chosen. This will make your lips look fuller, tidier and more defined.

TIP: Do the rest of your make-up before you apply Glitter Lips – leaving your lips till last. 😘

Taking Glitter Lips Off

Taking Glitter Lips off you’re lips is harder than your average lipsticks. As Glitter Lips is long lasting, smudge proof and waterproof – water alone will not really remove it. Although it is possible to remove the glitter using just water, it just takes a little longer to remove than a oil based make-up remover would.

Your usual makeup remover should do the job just fine, but if you don’t have any at hand you could use baby wipes, cleanser, toner, moisturiser or any type of oil. I prefer to use coconut oil to remove mine, as well as removing the glitter, it gives my lips some TLC too. I love coconut!

I’ve also found that when removing Glitter Lips, the glitter acts like an abrasive to the lips, giving them a little exfoliating scrub. Perfect way to remove dry skin from chapped lips! 😘

TIP: Once you have removed the glitter, apply some Vaseline or moisturising lip balm to keep your lips in tip-top condition!

Why I Love Glitter Lips ❤

Glitter Lips unite with TOWIE star Gemma Collins’ new clothing line ___

I love Glitter Lips because I am lazy! Ha-ha. On a night out when I’ve had one too many Double Vodka RedBulls – being vain and wanting to look good while partying goes out of the window. (I’m a crazy drunk! 😂)

I forget to apply my lipstick throughout the night but when I wear Glitter Lips, I don’t have to top up my lip colour as Glitter Lips stays put, no matter how hard I party. The billion selfies I take on my phone always look much more glamorous too. 😊

Glitter Lips is not tested on animals, uses cosmetic grade glitter and is safe to use on children aged 3 and over! Little girls love Glitter Lips too! 👄

Now, on the box it says one application has staying  power for up to 8 hours, no matter how much you eat, drink, party or kiss 😉 – so I put it to the test and applied my Glitter Lips at 12 pm, keeping it on all day and night. I even slept with it on and was really surprised that it was still perfectly in place the following morning.

Review: Diamond In The Buff – Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard

11034041_1510566342569383_8536504799642955678_n

I love Glitter Lips by Beauty Boulevard. I’ve tried Ruby Slippers before which I absolutely loved (I’m a red lippie kinda girl) and I’ve just tried the sparkling ‘Diamond In The Buff’.

I can’t wait to test the other shades out and one day I will be a confirmed glitterholic and will have tried all 17 shades (2 down, 15 to go) 😘

Diamond in the buff is a pretty sparkly lip colour from the Glitter Lips collection, quite neutral and not as shocking compared to the fabulous, Ruby Slippers. It did have a green undertone (which I didn’t like one bit) when I applied too much and I was advised by the lovely lady at Beauty Boulevard to apply a THIN coating of Glitter Dust after the bond glue has dried. If you apply too much of Diamond In The Buff Glitter dust, YOU WILL END UP WITH GREEN LIPS. Not attractive. So remember to use sparingly. If you don’t go overboard with the glitter dust it will look beautiful! ❤

This shade is great for those who aren’t as daring as my fellow Ruby Slippers admirer’s and is also fab for both a toned down daytime look or a pretty evening look teamed with smoky eyes and false eyelashes for a night out with the girls. Your little princess would also love this colour and would go perfectly with her princess dress for fancy dress parties. We all know how little girls love to dress up and what princess doesn’t love glitter. (On children, I suggest using a little Vaseline or lip balm in replacement of the bonding glue)

I do think Glitter Lips by beauty Boulevard has more glitter included than bonding glue in their boxes but it all depends on how much glitter dust you actually apply.

Inside the box:

😊  APPLICATOR BRUSH

😊 GLITTER LIPS GLOSS BOND

😊 PREMIUM GLITTER SHADE DIAMOND IN THE BUFF

There are 17 different Glitter Lips shade’s (and counting) to choose from and is available to buy on the Beauty Boulevard website – it is £12.50 to buy. (Link to website is below)

12279211_1510566365902714_2581733025252177516_n

For those who haven’t read my last review of Ruby Slippers – Glitter Lips, which included a little how to apply paragraph, here goes lovelies’.

Ensure lips are clean, dry and moisturised (no chapped lips) – TIP – Apply one lip at a time.

    1. Keeping lips parted, apply the gloss. Allow the gloss to turn from white to gleam. (apply gloss as you would do lip-gloss)
    2. Apply glitter generously to the lips, ensuring an even coverage. (thinly for Diamond In The Duff) – TIP – Dampen applicator pad to help lift glitter.
    3. Dust off excess glitter and you are ready to go. – TIP – Remove with an oil based makeup remover.

untitleduhuhuhubSo my overall thought about Diamond In The Duff –   pretty, sparkling pink, gold, green and silver colour’s, neutral and very girly but I must admit I still prefer my beloved Ruby Slippers which is rose-red, bold and certainly eye-catching.

Glitter Lips By Beauty Boulevard. It is definitely a beauty essential that every girl should have in their make-up bag! With 17 shades to choose from, there is a colour for everyone. Ultra Glam!!
