MUA haul!

Image

Just a quick post to show you what arrived this morning! I bought the MUA lipstick in shade 1, the New Blush perfection Cream Blusher in Bittersweet and the Brow Kit!

Basically, I’m a bit scared of blusher, so I did some research and as I have dry skin I decided a cream blush would be better than a traditional powder one! So I will be giving that a go this week and reporting back haha.

I got the Brow Kit as many people have recommended the Benefit Brow Zings to me and I want to make sure I know what I’m doing with a brow kit before I spend so much money on the Benefit version. So watch this space for ultra groomed brows… hopefully.

Lastly, the lipstick! I love lipsticks and I have never tried MUA lipsticks before. I’ve heard lots of good things though so I’m sure I’ll love it, and the colour is amazing.

Lacura Beauty Lipstick Review

Being a student, I have been doing the majority of my food shopping at Aldi for the past two years, so that’s how I became familiar with the Lacura brand. In the past, I have tried their anti-wrinkle cream, shampoo, make-up and baby wipes, but I had never tried their pretty extensive make-up range! I have kindly been sent this Lacura Lipstick in Classic Red by Lauren at Aldi PR.

The colour is really vibrant and I can see myself wearing this on a night out. However, because it is a moisturising lipstick, rather than a matte one, it isn’t too heavy for the day time either. I have been wearing it all day and the lipstick has lasted pretty well, although I had to reapply after having lunch. But to be honest, this is the case with the majority of more expensive lipsticks out there, regardless of what their advertising says!

The lipstick contains avocado oil meaning that the lipstick doesn’t leave your lips dry, and it glides on really easily.

Bearing in mind the price, the only downside I can think of is the packaging. The tube itself has no indication as to what the colour of the lipstick is, so if you had a few in your make-up bag then it might take a while to find the one you are looking for. Also, in store the lipsticks are in cardboard packaging, which seems a bit wasteful (I forgot to take a picture!). But hey, this is actually nothing to do with the actual product!

Overall, I would recommend this lipstick, and I will definitely be going to have a look at the rest of the make-up range soon!

Lacura Beauty Lipstick is priced at £1.99 (bargain) at Aldi stores nationwide. Sadly, it cannot be bought online though.

Have you tried any Lacura products?

My current favourite lipstick – Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait Review

As the blog name suggests, I have a bit of a thing for lipsticks and I go through A LOT. My friends also know this and bought the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait as part of an early birthday present a couple of months ago. Apparently they saw the advert featuring Emma Stone who has similar colouring to me and thought it would suit me. It isn’t a colour I would have picked out myself but I definitely agree with my friends, I love the colour. It’s a shimmery, coral colour. The shimmer is quite subtle though and there are no big glittery bits in the lipstick.

A lot of people are wary of lipstick – they think it’s dated, or simply a bit of a hassle. I think that the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters are great for you if you fall into this category because it’s more like a lip gloss when applied. It’s also got a lovely, creamy texture which moisturises your lips really well. This is another huge reason behind why I’ve been wearing it so much later – I apply it instead of lip balm.

Overall, I think it’s a lovely daytime lipstick because you don’t have to mess around with lip liners and there’s no worrying about it bleeding like with darker shades. It’s also really easy to apply and just glides on, as opposed to some more matte lipsticks.

Has anyone tried any of the other shades in the collection?

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter is available at Boots priced at £7.99
