Glo by Glory’s Glo Stix (Semi-Matte Liquid Lipstick) in “L♡ve Muffin”

Hello everyone!

This semi-matte liquid lip stick is proud to be vegan and cruelty-free and sells for $18.

I couldn’t be more happy with the shade I got. Cherry red really suits and compliments any skin tone out there. I just love the bright, bold pigment and this shade goes with a lot of outfits and is fitting al year round. On the website (www.globyglory.com) the cherry red is described as blue cherry red which signifies it has a blue undertone. I have read that blue undertone lip sticks may also make your smile look a bit whiter. Blue is on the opposite side of yellow on the colour wheel. This means that blue will compliment the slight yellow hue some teeth have.

It was a pleasant surprise when I realised that the lipstick has a vanilla scent!

It is best to exfoliate your lips prior to applying the liquid lip stick so that you have a smooth finish.

I am very impressed at the opacity of the liquid lip stick. One coat truly does the job!
It does not apply streaky. If you really want to, you could add another coat but I do not think it necessary.
I recommend you carry this in your handbag when you wear it for a day out. After I had a meal and drank a drink (through a straw) the liquid lipstick came off at the inner part of my lips. It looked like I only wore lip liner! So it is a good idea to keep this close for touch ups.

If you find the liquid lip stick to be drying you could lightly add a thin layer of lip balm on top so that it can return some moisture to your pout. If you would like to have a different from matte finish you could add a lip gloss on top. I used Absolute! Q10 Smooth Lip Care and it worked perfectly. (Review for that product is on my Instagram page: @Lipbalm_Euphoria)

A tube comes with 0.14oz/ 4 ml of product.

The liquid lipstick dries reasonably fast as well.

It comes with a doe foot applicator and applies easily. I found that it is very easy to correct yourself if you accidentally went out of line while applying this as it can come off with a little water and rubbing!

In conclusion, I recommend this lipstick to any person who loves to rock their bold lip ;). Comment below whether you prefer bold or more neutral shades!

Dr. Lip Bangs’ Lip Freak Lip Balm in “Sonic Cinnabun”

Hello everyone! Here’s a review on one of the most intriguing lip balms I have ever came across. With the claim that this lip balm is “the strongest buzzing lip balm in the whole world” (as said on the tube), one can not help, but to wonder whether it is true.

I am very impressed with the formula. It is medium weight with a smooth, creamy application. I do feel that the balm is moisturising.

The cinnamon aroma is rather strong when first applied but merges into a pleasant cinnamon-like scent in a few seconds. Rather than a cinnabun scent, I feel I get a Frankies’ Cinnamon Cola (soda) aroma when I use this. It’s nice and something different from the normal scent choices that lip balms have (vanilla, mint et cetera). So even though the scent is a touch over powering in the first few seconds it settles to a very pleasant and mild aroma.

One question that arose when I heard of this lip balm is, “Does it plump your lips due to the strong buzzing?” The answer can be found on their website’s Frequently Asked Questions page. This lip balm is not a lip plumper. It’s simply a balm with a buzz.

Now here is the interesting part: I think my lip balm’s oils have settled to heat, because it does not really tingle. I know that this balm works when I read the reviews by @thelipbalmaholic and others. Each lip balm is made using the same recipe as stated on their website.

I do get a slight buzzing sensation when I apply this lip balm generously. It does not have the cooling effect menthol has, it’s just a buzzing “stinging” effect on your lips. And do not worry, it does not hurt at all, it is very safe and made with all natural ingredients.

This lip balm that normally sells for $7.99 has 0.15oz/ 4g of product.

I would recommend anyone who likes to try daring exciting lip products to give this one a try. And if you are a Frankies’ Cinnamon Cola fan… What are you waiting for?

January LippieBox 2018: In Retrospect

Have you ever decided to start a lip balm collection, but you want to try different lip balms from different brands from those that are available in store? LippieBox is the sure answer for you.

I have always been interested in trying LippieBox. The idea of trying different lip balms from various companies intrigued me a lot. LippieBox offers you the oppertunity to try out new lip products you haven’t seen before.

We are already approaching the end of the first quarter of the year, so why don’t we look back at what the January LippieBox delighted its subscribers with!

This LippieBox is a box that contains a variety of lip products and even two mini hand soaps. I thought the addition of the handsoaps was a sweet personal touch.

This month’s box certainly caters to any girl who loves to pamper herself and have a smooth pout. I loved the variety of products that were included.

When you open the box there is a business card with all LippieBox’s media handles and there is also a pamphlet that contains information regarding what is in the box and who is the subscriber of the month! It’s rather sweet that LippieBox interacts with their followers. That’s what I like about their company.

In between pink crinkle cut paper bits five products await to put a smile on your face. It sure did put a smile on mine!

The first product I got in this month’s box is Doctor Lip Bang’s Lip Freak in Sonic Cinnabun. With the motto “Freak your lips out!” they certainly challenge the adventurous among us to try their lip balm because their lip balms have “the strongest buzzing” in the world! You will have to read my review on this lip balm, to find out more about it, I’m sure you have a lot of questions!

The second product is aimed at any ladies who love that kick of colour for a day out. I’m so glad I got the cherry red shade in “Love Muffin”. Personally I love any bold red, it just gives me that confidence boost and add that pop of colour to my outfit. Are you interested in trying this? Why don’t you read my review on it!

The last three, or should I say four, products is made by the loyal My Magical Star. My Magical Star has been featured in quite a few LippieBoxes in the past and I can certainly see why!

There are two mini hand soaps in the scents vanilla and black raspberry. I could immediately smell these sweet scents when I opened my LippieBox. They smell lush!

The scent of the raspberry lip scrub is what stole my heart the most. When I open the little tub the sweet raspberry scent immediately fills the air! It smells divine! (I must admit I wish I could eat it.)

It is a sugar-based lip scrub and exfoliates your lips to reveal a soft pout. You only need to use about the size of a pea to exfoliate your lips. I recommend you scrub your lips weekly and no more than two times a week since you do not want to scrub too much! You can then just wash the bits of sugar off with water and pat your lips dry with a face cloth. I recommend using this lip scrub then apply your semi matte liquid lipstick for a smooth application. If you want a bit of moisturization you can use your Vanilla Cream Slider Tin lip balm also made by My Magical Star.

I always believe one can not go wrong with vanilla and My Magical Star proved it once again! Their natural lip balm smell absolutely heavenly! It reminds me of vanilla ice cream on a waffle. Sweet, warm notes that teases the taste buds.

This is my first lip balm in a slider tin and I love it! It has no tint and has a long-lasting scent that lingers by your lips for a while. You can take the top completely off if you ever wondered (like me).
