Aj Bartlett, a consultant for Oriflame was a massive sweetheart and sent me a load of freebies to review for you. I am going to put them in order of my favourite to my least favourite and tell you my pro’s and con’s for each of these products, so lets get to it!

1# Coming in at first place is the Matte control foundation in ‘[Natural beige’ £9.95.

Pro’s: Full coverage

No shine in sight.

Lasts all day

Lightweight 

Left my face feeling silky smooth all day.

Con’s:

I wish it was in a bigger bottle!

2# Lip crayon in ‘Electric red’ £8.95

Pro’s:

High shine

Moisturized my lips

Glides on easily

Smells amazing

Very bright and pigmented

Con’s:

Would prefer it if the colour twisted up but it needs to be sharpened

3# Eyeliner stylo in ‘Black’ £6.95

Pro’s:

Really easy to use with its pen applicator

Dries within milliseconds!

Con’s:

4# Triple core lipstick in ‘Faith’ £10.95

Pro’s:

Con’s:

Not pigmented enough.

5# Pure colour eyeshadow palette in ‘Nude/grey’ £12.95

Not all colours come out the way they lookj in the palette.

5# Professional foundation brush £7.95

I don’t really have any pro’s about this brush, its synthetic and leaves foundation streaky but i would use it for face painting or special fx.

M.A.C Candy yum yum dupe

M.a.c has recently re-released candy yum yum along side ‘moxie’ and ‘rocker’ as part of there most voted for favourites collection and it has been one hell of a struggle to get my hands on one as it has constantly been sold out but finally I managed to bag myself one.

Candy yum yum is a bright matte neon pink lipstick which all make up artists and make up junkies are going mad for and on photographs it looked like the perfect pink so I bought it. It arrived this morning and I’ve gotta be honest I wasn’t impressed with the colour as it is a lot more neon than i thought it would be. Don’t get me wrong it is an absolutely beautiful colour and I do recommend it, it just unfortunately is not a colour that I can pull off, anything too bright or neon makes me look like a clown. I love the feel of it on my lips and the finish, I love matte finishes for lipsticks. It cost £14 and there is free delivery on the M.a.c website until the 25th so go get yourself one before it sells out again!!

After I put it on I realised I already have a lipstick like this and that is Barry m’s lip paint in I think either shade 62 or 52, the sticker has fallen off so I cant be too sure but its definitely one of those shades and it only cost £4.49 and the colour is exactly the same, they are just different finishes, this one is more of a satin finish and has more of a creamy texture, where as candy yum yum is matte.

They are exactly the same colour so the only thing i can comment on that I prefer are the finishes so for that I do prefer candy yum yum. If you’re happy to spend £14 then go get yourself candy yum yum, if you’re desperate for candy yum yum but its a tad too pricey for you then go buy Barry m, you wont be able to tell the difference.

Limecrime velvetines review & dupe!

There has been a lot of hype over Limecrime’s new velvetine lipsticks which come in two shades, Suedeberry which is a coral colour and Red velvet which is a very deep red. For anyone that isn’t aware of velvetines, they are Limecrimes new lipsticks that go on like a lipgloss and dry completely matte. Everyone has been raving about them and they looked amazing so i had to buy one, which was a slight struggle because due to the popularity it had sold out everywhere. But eventually I managed to find myself one at Cocktailcosmetics.co.uk I purchased Suedeberry which including p&p came to about £16. So when it arrived i was super excited and couldn’t wait to put it on, the packaging was beautiful, the lipstick itself is quite small but I personally don’t mind so much. It’s easy to apply, drys fast and the colour is beautiful but you may need to apply a few layers to make the colour a bit more bolder. Now this lipstick claims to be long lasting but if you drink a lot of hot drinks like me then that will not be the case. After drinking a hot drink or eating food that is slightly greasy the lipstick will just smudge and wear away which i wasn’t happy about but i cant complain to much because the best way to remove this lipstick is with oil, so in a sense its doing its job but it doesn’t make it any less annoying when i have lipstick smudged all around my mouth and have to keep re-applying if i need to eat or drink.  I haven’t yet used a lipstick sealer over the top so it may stay put after that so i will have to let you all know. So in all the packaging, the colour, application and finish is beautiful and i would highly recommend the only thing as i said i don’t like is that for me it isn’t long lasting.

Now also when i put it on for the first time it reminded me of a lipstick that i already owned and that is Rimmel in Kiss me 140. The colour is pretty much identical if there is any difference in colour i would say Limecrime is a bit more pinky and the Rimmel is more orange. The finish is pretty much the same the Rimmel is a velvet finish like the Limecrime but Rimmel has the slightest bit of sheen. The price however is a fair bit different to Limecrime I purchased the lipstick for £6 and you can get it from most places, Superdrug, Boots, Savers etc. This also for me is extremely long lasting compared to Velvetines.

So if you don’t mind paying for Limecrime i would definitely recommend it it is a very beautiful lipstick but isn’t long lasting but if your’e looking for a cheaper lipstick that does the same then i would also highly recommend Rimmel its a lot cheaper, beautiful colour and long lasting.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my first Review, Please Like, comment, subscribe and share!
