Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Lipsticks


Drug store lipsticks are just getting better and better but sometimes you just have to splash out and treat yourself to a high end lipstick or 4. These Pure Colour Envy lipstick by Estee Lauder cost £26 so they are not cheap but they are worth every penny and I have 2 mattes and 2 creams to talk to you about today.

First of all the packaging is perfect it just feels high end with the magnetic closure and gold colour on both ends then blue round the sides, this does not feel plasticky or cheap. They do look a little old fashioned but that does not take away from high end feeling of them.  

     Unattainable                   Shameless Violet
Lets talk matte first. When you first put these matte lipsticks on you would almost think they are cream lipsticks, they go on so easily and feel so comfortable to wear. There is no need to put a load of this lipstick on because these lipsticks are so pigmented and they are not shear. They can dry your lips out a wee bit but nothing that a bit of lip balm cant fix and because they feel creamy they dont look horrible when you put these on dry lips, you can notice your lips might look a little dry but compared to other matte lipsticks you can get away it.

    Powerful                       Dominant
The first every Estee Lauder lipstick that I bought was the Pure Colour Envy in Powerful which is sadly almost finished and yes I will be replacing it. Im not really in to girly pink lipsticks but for some reason this one just works really will for me and I love it, its my summer time lipstick if the sun is out then I will have this on. It just makes me feel good when I wear this lipstick, Dominant is a fantastic colour as well but Powerful has my heart. These cream lipsticks are really good and I think they are made for magic, Im not joking. Even though these lipsticks are cream they last so long, I would expect a matte lipstick to last a long time but a cream lipstick still looking good after a 8 hour shift at work and its not tried to run all over my face and bleed past my lip line is a bit unusual. Normally when Im on my break at work I do touch up my lipstick but most on the time I dont really think I need to with these lipsticks. I do see them transfer on to cups and things but somehow there is still so much colour on my lips. 

I think if your planning on treating yourself to a high end lipstick you should try these whether its the matte or cream ones they are both really good. My top 2 are Powerful which is from the creams and then Unattainable which is from the mattes.

If there is anything you would like to ask about these lipstick then leave it in the comments below and I will get back to you as so as I can.

Olay Daily Facial In A Box


I have see these Daily Facial In A Box before years ago then shops just stopped selling them but I found them again and I really wanted to try them. These cloths have got aloe, chamomile extract and Vitamin E in them and these cloths are for sensitive skin, they are also dermatologically tested and fragrance and soap free.

The way your meant to use these cloths is by running the dry cloth under water which will make the cloth become activated, you can then use these cloths to remove make up, exfoliate and Olay also says they can reduces the appearance of pores. I was so looking forward to trying these cloths out to take my make up off with because they sound so good.

So I did as they said I put the dry cloths under water and then I went to take my make up off with it. Normal when I do a review I always like to try the product a few times so I can really get a good idea of what I think of it but with this I have only used it once because I cant bring myself to use them again.

If you have read my blog before then you might know I have very sensitive eyes and using these cloths hurt so much and I dont even think they removed my make up that well. Now these might be ok for sensitive skin but if you have dry skin then run! Just run the other way. Im not joking, these made my skin feel so dry they killed my skin. If you have oily skin you might really like these but normal and dry skin I would just avoid these.

I really like the idea of these cloths and I think they would be really good for travelling but they need to be a lot better before I even think about trying these ever again.



Im sorry that this post is so negative but Im not going to tell you I like something if I dont.

Have you tried this Olay Daily Facial In A Box? What did you think of it?

Kat Von D and Too Faced Better Together Lip and Cheek Set


I know I normally do reviews and hauls but as soon as I opened this I had to make a post about it. I was very lucky to get the Kat Von D and Too Faced Better Together Ultimate Eye Collection for my birthday and I really like, in the palette you get six eye shadow colour which are really nice and so easy to work with and I really like the fact you get a full size of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and a full size of the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner. I really think if you have been eyeing up the palette then why not get it, yes it is a lot of money but it is a really nice palette. 

So Kat Von D and Too Faced also made a lip and cheek set together and I will tell you right now I dont think its worth you money. I had my eye on this set for some time but from reviews I watched about it I always thought the Too Faced size which is the cheek size just looked cheap and this is not a cheap set but I saw it was in offer on the Debenhams website so I thought I will get it because I have be eyeing it up for so long now and you get Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the lip side of this set. I have never tried any lip products by Kat Von D but I always wanted to try the Studded Kiss Lipsticks and even thought I really dont like liquid lipsticks I wanted to try the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick just to see what is was like compared to other ones I have tried and I love the colour of this one.

This set comes in a wee make up bag with one side all sparkly and pink with the Too Faced dog called Clover and saying Too Faced and the other side is matte black with Kat Von D's cat called Piaf and saying Kat Von D. This bag is in the shape of a heart.
                                                                                              
                                     

Kat Von D's Side: On this size there is really nice products with really nice packaging, the Studded Kiss Lipstick and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick just feel like mini sizes of the really thing and I really like how they both look and feel. The Studded Kiss Lipstick is in the colour Muse which is a nude colour and I feel like I can see little bits of glitter in it, Im not a big fan of nude lipsticks but I will by trying this one out so I can see if I want to buy more for the Studded Kiss line. The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick comes in XO which is a beautiful deep red colour and even thought I dont like liquid lipstick I cant wait to try this out. Im so happy with this side of the set, I like the fact there is a dark colour and then a more every day colour in here so I think it will be really good for a lot of people.


             XO                                                                Muse     
 Too Faced's Side: This side is were is all goes down hill for this set and its sad because I feel like on the Kat Von D's she put care and thought in to it and the bag this comes in even though Im not a big fan of it I can still till there was time put on to making it look the way they wanted it to look. On this side you get a mini Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder which comes in the colour Rosy Glow and you also get a mini Love Flush Long Lasting Blush in So Happy Together. The packaging for both the blush and highlighter feel cheap like kids make up, this is a high end make up company that made this side I dont expect the packaging to feel like kids make up. The Love Flush Long Lasting Blush is a bit to pink for me and I think might just look a bit weird on my skin tone but it looks like it will be really easy to blend in to the skin. The Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder is a light highlighter, when I first started using highlighters I only liked light ones but now Im a bit highlighting mad but only on my cheek bones so Im hoping this will give me a good highlighting glow and Im really looking forward to trying it out. I dont hate the products you get on the Too Faced side but it just feels very cheap and I know Too Faced is a lot more girly than Kat Von D but I normally really like Too Faced and their packaging. Did they just not care? Or did they really think this was nice? I have no idea but I do know this is really bad for something that costs so much money.



                     So Happy Together                                      Rosy Glow               

Im on the fence about the set, I love the Kat Von D side, I like the bag even though I will probably never use it but the Too Faced side feels like they could not be bothered and I think it lets this set down.
