The purpose of this lip stain is to provide intense colour, high shine, be long-lasting and offer a seductive scent.
The box it comes in is not anything special but the actual tube of gloss is too cute. Covered with a ribbon and plastic shoe trinket, it is beautifully presented. It does really have a gorgeous smell, but to me it’s more like blueberries or raspberries, not vanilla as the box suggests. The consistency is much thicker than a normal gloss and it really does have a much longer lasting effect on the lips than any other gloss I have tried. It had a sort of tingling effect on my lips!
I am not really a lipstick girl, I barely wear gloss and the colour is not my favourite, more purple than red, but many people have commented on how they like the look when I wear it. Go figure!
I am not sure about the pheromone-boosting blend that it offers users, but maybe that’s just me! It is not something I would buy it again, as I would not use it long-term but it was definitely fun to review.
My favourite bronzer
The Physicians Formula Natural Nude Shimmer Strips, Nude Palette, is my favourite item out of my whole goodie pack! The purpose of the product is to act as an all over bronzer or eyeshadow.
To me, the box is average but the actual product is beautifully displayed with instructions on how-to use it the pack.
I use it as an all over bronzer/shimmer stick; it’s the perfect set of colours for me as I’m so pale! It gives me a light shimmer but it’s not so dark that my skin changes colour too drastically. What I love about the pack is it comes with an eyeshadow and bronzer brush to play with, though the bronzer brush is a bit small! This pack is great to go traveling with, and I think I might buy a new pack when I am finished with this one!
Want to try some of their other colours
I was given the colour Heatwave, an almost reddish, tomato colour. The bottle is not that exciting, but what nail polish is? However, it does have a nice big brush for quick and easy application. I am not a red nail polish kind of girl, but the application was easy and the formula dried well. It lasted for about 3 to 4 days, which is normal. I have never tried this brand before, but might go and try out some of the other colours on offer.
I really like this spray! I have long hair and blow dry it often. It really works, has a lovely smell and does not leave my hair feeling too crisp or dry.
Brazil Nut Soap
I do love the soaps from the Body Shop and this one is absolutely divine. I am using the Shea Butter one at the moment. I agree they are rather pricey for soaps so I usually like to grab them when they are running their specials!
Revlon ColourStay mineral makeup
I really want to try this as my Almay is being discontinued
