Nizz Cosmetics Lustre Lipstick

Nizz Cosmetics specialise in creating vegetarian, hypo-allergenic, paraben-free and long-lasting lip colours, the likes of which have been sported by celebrities including Caroline Flack and Little Mix as well as being featured in Look Magazine, Reveal, Closer and OK.

The Nizz Cosmetics Lustre Lipstick (RRP £16, available here) is a beautifully smooth lipstick made from all natural ingredients and paraben-free. All of the ingredients sourced are Fair Trade and cruelty free. The creamy formula features Shea Butter, an ingredient which has been used for centuries by women in Sub-Saharan Africa to nourish and protect their skin and hair. This is combined with Peach Kernel Oil, which protects the skin by supporting its barrier function, preventing moisture loss, and nourishing Sweet Almond Oil, which is rich in Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E.

Perfect Your Pout with Lord & Berry

For more than twenty years Lord & Berry has been crafting fashion forward, high quality makeup. Based in the Italian home of fashion – Milan – the aim of the brand has always been to create makeup for every woman, regardless of age or culture, and every occasion.

Lord & Berry is probably best known for their beautiful lip products – indeed when the company was founded back in 1992 it concentrated solely on eyes and lips – and today I have three very wearable products from their range* to show you.

Get Glam this January with Max Factor

January can be a difficult month. The days may be growing longer, but it’s still colder than December and without the excitement of Christmas it can seem like a darker month than ever. So Max Factor are aiming to banish those Winter blues and make January the month to be glam with their #GlamJan campaign.

#GlamJan aims to encourage women from around the world to glam up with make-up and undergo a personal glamour transformation just as Marilyn Monroe did when she met Mr. Max Factor and emerged as the bombshell blonde we all know and love.

Kiss Cosmetics Lip Vinyl

Kiss Cosmetics are a new kid on the beauty block with their recently launched, purse-friendly makeup line. At the moment the collection seems to be focused mainly on lip products including the bang on trend Lip Vinyl I’m featuring today.

Yes I know, there has been a flurry of budget brands entering the market over the past 12 months and quite possibly you think the market couldn’t get anymore saturated, but before you let the word “budget” put you off read on, because my first experience of Kiss Cosmetics has been very promising and has left me wanting more!

Max Factor Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipstick

I have a Blogger confession – in all my thirty plus years I’ve never really tried Max Factor makeup. Somehow, despite the adverts and walking past displays in Boots, the brand never really felt like it was aimed at me; in my teens it seemed too mature, then in my twenties too glamorous, and so Max Factor ended up passing me by.

I realise that this is a huge oversight, that Max Factor enjoys a massive worldwide market and has a great reputation for producing quality, reasonably priced cosmetics, and I’m happy to have rectified this recently by trying a few of their latest products; the first of which are the Max Factor Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipsticks.

National Lipstick Day with W7 Lip Paint

Apparently it’s National Lipstick Day today so as all good beauty bloggers should I’m embracing the day and celebrating by donning a brightly coloured lipstick.

Now, I suppose I shouldn’t really admit this on such a day as today but I’m not really a lipstick girl (sorry, not sorry) and I usually reach for lip gloss when doing my makeup, but these days there are some wonderful hybrid products out there that offer the vibrancy of a lipstick with the feel of a gloss. I love that these products give me the chance to achieve a bolder lip without stepping too far out of my comfort zone.

e.l.f. Cosmetics – The Return

Last year I fell for e.l.f. Cosmetics budget-friendly makeup in a big way, then in the Spring of 2015 they pulled out of the UK market leaving a lot of bereft fans, myself included. So I was very excited to see an email from them recently announcing they are planning on a huge comeback this Summer.

Hailing from New York e.l.f. specialises in affordable, cruelty-free colour cosmetics, and is distributed throughout Europe and North America. With prices ranging from £1 to around £6 products can be hit or miss, but there are some definite gems to be had. My favourites are their blushes and lip products, so I thought I’d introduce you to some of them in today’s post.
