Apocalips Now

11 Feb

Every beauty blog I have read in the past couple of weeks has mentioned Rimmel’s new lip lacquer Apocalips.
I was also drawn to this cleverly named product.

I’m in the mood for pouting

29 May

The sun shining spells only one thing, the beginning of the long awaited summer.

Finally it is time to dust off the BBQ, bare some leg and and dig out the wellies in preparation for festival season.

This year, press pass permitting I’ll be attending V Festival VIP style. The backstage area is always crawling with musicians, soap stars, reality TV stars and WAGs who all look amazing so there is definately pressure to look good, despite slumming it in a tent.

I always take my make up bag with me to festivals but try to just wear the basics – foundation, bronzer, mascara and lipgloss.

Inspired by the festival season one of my favourite brands Miners has introduced a range of mood gloss. The gloss features colour changing technology that reacts with everyones individual ph-level creating a completely unique colour.There are two glosses available. My favourite shade is a nod to the UK’s biggest festival and is called “Glastonberry”. It is my favourite because it smells so fruity and goes from clear to a vibrant pink shade, that is as hot as the recent weather! The other shade is called “Peace Pout” and transforms from a nude shimmer to a pink shimmer. This lipgloss will certainly make my festival bag as it is a gloss and colour in one – the ultimate time saver. Another major plus point in my eyes is that the product is shiny without being sticky, which can let other glosses down.

Both shades are available from for £2.49.

Have you tried this gloss? What is your favourite shade?


For lips that shine

13 Jan

As a teenager one thing I would not leave the house without was lipgloss. It was the first cosmetic item I could get away with wearing both at home and at school so I really went to town.

In my late teens I strayed from the gloss, preferring balm for a non-sticky, soft and natural look but in the past few months my obsession is back. With a bang.

Here’s a look at a few of my faves…

Bourjois eau de gloss Cosmic

This gloss is perfect for adding a bit of glitz and glam to the occasion. It’s a firm fave as it is non-sticky, very shiny (with glitter) and gives lips four hours worth of moisture.

Another winner about this gloss is the applicator – a thin brush, which allows for a controlled application.

FCUK oh so irresistible lip glosses – sweet coral

One quarter of a gorgeous gift set, this shade is wearable day or night as it isn’t too full on & the packaging is perfect for even the smallest of clutch bags! This gloss can be a touch on the sticky side, but for me the shade and the scent (slightly fruity) more than makes up for it.

17 Ultimate Volume – Pink Ice

Pink ice descibes the shade of this gloss perfectly. Now I’m back to being brunette I’m back faithfully to this gloss (its a bit too much with blonde hair.) The colour reminds me of bubblegum and so does the texture as it is quite thick but importantly not sticky!

What gloss do you rate or hate?
