Beauty Pie Liquid Lipsticks

Hi beauties

Today I have some Beauty Pie makeup with their lip colours. I’m sure you all know of my love of Matte Liquid Lipstick, they are my favourite textures.

I thought all 4 were Matte however the bottom two are gloss types. The colours I went for are:

Fantasticolour Liquid Lipstick in Winner

Fantasticolour Liquid Lipstick in Charm Inc

3D Shine Liquid Lipstick in Electric Currant

3D Shine Liquid Lipstick in Toasted.

The two matte shades are my favourites, the 3D Shines aren’t really for me but that’s my mistake. They do wear quite well but not as well as the matte formulas. There are a couple of other shades I want to get so as soon as I get my allowance I am sure I will add those to my collection.

Prices are £4.54 for the matte shades for members £20.00 for non members, 3D Shine Liquid Lipstick is £3.46 for members or £20.00 for non members.

Even those the 3D Shine’s wouldn’t be my first choice I have enjoyed wearing them, pigment in both formulas are amazing and really do cover well. Most importantly comfortable to wear, I definitely want more!

Till next time,

MuLondon Lavender Moisturiser

Hi beauties,

In January I received a care package from a very dear friend Elizabeth (my.skinology on Instagram) and included was this moisturiser from MuLondon.

MuLondon was created by Boris and inspired by traditional herbalism, after developing eczema and psoriasis Boris started to research the use of ingredients his mother told him about whilst he was growing up and made natural remedies to his skin difficulties.

I love “natural” products and use a lot of them, my favourite essential oil is Lavender so was really interested in trying this. My skin was very topsy turvy at the time of testing, dry and oily with flakiness and breakouts, I pared back my routine simply to cleansing and moisturising.

Lavender Moisturiser is a Shea Butter base and very rich. You need a TINY amount, warm a small amount between your palms and apply. This is really a multi use product, I’m still using it just not on my face now my skin is back to normal. It makes a fabulous hand and nail treatment, great on any dry and flaky or irritated skin you may have. It’s a very good product to have available to use top to toe.

The fragrance is absolutely divine, I wasn’t disappointed at all. It’s really a concentrated product so while it seems expensive at 50ml for £19.00 I use it frequently and have more than half left which I think is really good going. There is a fragrance free version for you sensitive peeps as well as other versions such as hemp. Go to http://www.mulondon.com to find out more.

Laboratoire SVR Topialyse Baume Lavant

Hi beauties,

A brand I have found some brilliant products from is Laboratoire SVR, Topialyse Baume Lavant.

The Topialyse range is for very dry skins, like the Topialyse Huile Lavante Micellaire I reviewed earlier. The Baume Lavant is a much richer texture and thicker than the oil, I have used this for cleansing my face and body.

Baume Lavant contains Niacinamide and Omegas 3,6,9. It’s a beautiful product to use, it’s fragrance free so great for sensitive skin. It’s been brilliant for helping to clean my skin without stripping and keeping my skin hydrated. Perfect for when I’m having an eczema flare up it’s very soothing and calming.

Baume Lavant is suitable for the whole family, it helps to relieve the itching associated dry skin conditions and keeps your skin hydrated for up to 24 hours.

This will be a repeat purchase for me, I absolutely love it. I bought this 400ml from Feel Unique for £15.00, it is available at discount pharmacy http://www.easyparapharmacie.co.uk for £11.59.

Lime and Lilac Natural Light Facial Oil

Hi beauties,

My name is Lucy and I have an oil addiction, so when my friend Lisa launched her facial oil I placed my order quickly!

Lisa has a similar skin type to me, we are both oily with the occasional breakouts making this oil a great option for me. Lisa thoroughly researched oils that would be appropriate for the oily skin type that wouldn’t overload but still providing anti ageing properties.

Natural Light Face Oil is comprised of many natural oils, Safflower, Watermelon, Prickly Pear, Passionflower, Hemp, Argan, Natural Vitamin E and the beautiful fragrance essential oils of Neroli and Frankincense.

I love this Oil, it’s light and non greasy and I adore the fragrance. It’s beautiful to use and my skin always feels so soft and smooth after I use it. I’ve used it Day and Night, I’ve also layered with serums and moisturisers with no heavy feel or pilling. You need the tiniest amount, I use about 3-6 drops depending on how thirsty my skin is, I generally use more on my neck. A 15ml bottle is £34.50, for me it is able to stand with other brands I love like Decleor and Liz Earle. The packaging is gorgeous too, Lisa uses an amber bottle to keep the ingredients potent. The external packaging is recycled cardboard, that’s environmental friendly as well as pretty.

I would recommend this oil to anyone with oily skin who is also concerned with anti ageing, you wouldn’t go wrong with this.

Touch In Sol No Poreblem Primer

Hi beauties,

A few months ago Touch in Sol the K beauty brand launched in the U.K. at Cult Beauty, this Primer was all over Instagram and naturally I was intrigued.

No Poreblem Primer is a Primer that blurs pores and any uneven texture on your skin. It provides such a smooth base for makeup but of course you don’t have to wear makeup on top if you don’t want to.

My big gripe is that it doesn’t prevent or mop up oil as much as I would like, so I do use this on cooler days. I like how my makeup goes on and it looks good afterwards but it’s not mattifying enough for me.

I think this would be better suited to drier skins, I love the smoothing and blurring properties but I wouldn’t repurchase this. It’s £15.00 from Cult Beauty, naturally I got mine from a Korean EBay store for around £8.00.

Osmo Deep Moisture Dual Action Miracle Repair

Hi beauties,

I don’t review much haircare, I think its because of the psoriasis on my scalp I am very particular in what I use. I came across Osmo online and ordered this leave in conditioner, I was testing this just after Christmas, and it is in the winter months I do enjoy having a leave in formula.

Dual Action Miracle Repair is a dual phase formula, so a good shake is needed before use. Just shampoo and towel dry, and spray directly onto your hair. This is a fantastic deep conditioner, it does exactly as it says on the bottle, is easy to use and smells divine!

This isn’t a deep conditioner that leaves your hair heavy, however I will say err on the side of caution with the application. The first time I used it I was a bit trigger happy and applied too much which made my hair feel great but looked rather greasy.

The fragrance is Patchouli and Ylang Ylang so if you’re not into floral scents this wouldn’t be for you, I love both of those essential oils so it’s perfect for me.

This really works, it’s a deep conditioning treatment that leaves my hair soft and much less frizzy and coarse. Also it’s a 250ml sized bottle, with me using 2-3 sprays I’ve still got loads left! I bought mine from Fragrance Direct at the princely sum of £6.50, it’s currently on offer at £4.50.
