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).

What product did you enjoy most in January’s LippieBox ? Comment below!

Heal your Luscious Lips!

IMG_0175Hey Lippie Loves!

I have reviewed this balm before and I’m here to do it AGAIN! Why? Because this balm is amazing! It is in my top ten best balms list! This is Luscious Lips By Dayna Gayle!

It’s all natural and vegetarian! The ingredients are: Coconut oil, vitamin e oil, shea butter, beeswax, peppermint oil and mica!

I know tins are not always the favorite because you have to use your finger but trust me this is worth having in your collection! The tin locks perfectly so it is safe for your purse. Which if you have this on you then you will have a best lip balm friend! Also the peppermint is so strong that it can help the fact you did not brush your teeth this morning. It has a cooling tingly sensation that I am addicted to.

Also the company states that this is a healing balm which I fully agree! My lips are so soft and “luscious” after wearing this. Highly recommend wearing this at night for extra insurance on the perfectly soft pout. The formula is medium weight, and the balm is firm but melts onto your lips.  Also it is good for healing minor scrapes and burns!  It has a lot of product as well, so you know it will be there for you for a while! She also carries this in vanilla mint and tinted!

I know what you are thinking, how can a peppermint balm be as good as I’m saying it is? isn’t mint balms just mint balms? No they aren’t and let me explain. The peppermint causes the cooling which I love! All of my mint balms (which I have tried many) very rarely ever smell the same. This product is a strong real peppermint nothing fake about this balm. I haven’t come across such a genuine version of peppermint and I love it! I think you will too!

Definitely recommend as I gave this in the past a 10/10 now I’m giving it 11/10! Which if you have seen my reviews is extremely rare! I’m really happy that this was in the LippieBox this month because it is so good!

Stay tuned for more!

 

 

February Box: For a Perfect V-Day!

Here it is! February’s Lippie Box!IMG_0230

Thank you so much to Mint Mongoose for the adorable kiss pearl earrings! They are so uniquely girly! Also these are not tiny so they are noticeable as they are meant to stand out!

IMG_0244

So in this box we have:

Luscious Lips by Dayna Gayle in peppermint! I have worked with this company before which means I have so many things to tell you all about regarding this product so keep your eye out for an in depth review! It smells amazing! It is part of my top ten best balm list! Her balms are all natural and vegetarian. The packaging is straight to the point but with a balm this good you really do not need a fancy look! I can not wait to tell you why this is in my top ten list!

IMG_0238

My Magical Star Cherry Kiss Lip Balm smells so good! Can I eat it please? Seeing as it is natural I probably could but I do not think I would like the taste as much as I do the scent! This lightweight balm is a little greasy which I normally do not like but it makes for a smooth shiny application so I enjoy it! I like the detail on the packaging with the cherry hanging from the side of her lips. As you can see in the photo the packaging is scratching off which I like for that vintage feel but I know that it is all going to come off. It only has five ingredients and I love the metallic red lid! Over all the scent is amazing you will be sniffing your lips constantly!

Beezy Beez Honey All natural soothing lip balm in the scent blue raspberry is a very strong raspberry scent that makes me think of a blue raspberry ice pop during a summer day! It is a very smooth almost lip butter consistency. There is cute little bees on the packaging carrying tiny pieces of honeycomb which is super cute. It is a paper label so when I opened mine it ripped a bit so I recommend being careful taking off the safety seal!

IMG_0173

Better Skin Co. Zit No More Acne Treatment: Something new and different has been brought to the Box! It’s Paraben, Surfactant, Gluten, and Vegan Free! I have not been able to test this product out yet as I do not get many pimples. The Tea Tree oil in it is extremely strong but I know that tea tree oil is a great tool in destroying those nasty zits! The packaging is beautiful, I love the detailing. This roll on application is for all skin types and genders!

The theme of this Box is Fantastic! You have the earrings to wear for valentine’s day, the balm options for kiss ready lips no matter what state they could be in, and the zit treatment to ensure you are at your highest level of confidence!

What did you think of the Box? Comment your thoughts!

 

 

 

 

January Box: Buzz, Balm, and Glo!

 

Hello my Lippie Loves! Here is a review of the entire January Lippie Box!

First off, the box is super cute, I love that it’s pink with the little smooch on the top. I enjoyed the little notecard that tells you about the products, where to find them, also how much they cost! I adore how everything is wrapped up so fancy!

My Magical Star Black Raspberry vanilla soap: These bring back memories of my first ever body care that I wore as a kid. It’s the same exact scent! They are soft, smooth, very sudsy and so cute as little kisses!

My Magical Star Vanilla Cream lip balm: Have you ever smelt vanilla bean ice cream the minute you open that glorious cover off the pint of ice cream? That’s exactly what this smells like! It’s a very smooth natural ingredient formula that is lightweight enough that you will forget you are wearing anything on your lips! But in a good way as it’s very moisturizing. The consistency creates a nice barrier without the heavy feeling.  I was very happy to see that the product in the tin is full to the brim which isn’t always the case with lip tins. If tins bother you because you don’t like to touch your lip balm I recommend investing in a lip brush. They work quite well and that way you don’t miss on the amazing flavors and formulas.  I truly enjoy this balm!

My Magical Star lip scrub in Raspberry: This is my favorite out of the box. Shocking, I know! But let me tell you why: IT SMELLS SO GOOD! It reminds me of Revo’s Raspberry Chocolate Truffle balm from 2015. I could smell it all day long! It’s not greasy or goopy, has very fine sugar (definitely not gritty.) It leaves my lips silky soft and smooth. For those who haven’t used a lip scrub before, this exfoliates your lips. It’s really great in the winter when your lips get dry and start peeling or really any time of year! All you do is rub it on in circular motions then wipe or rinse it off. Then done! You have your super soft kissable lips back!

Glo By Glory 12 hour semi matte liquid lipstick in Love Muffin: This is really fun to use being such a bold color! Read my in-depth review here!

Dr Bang’s Buzzing Lip Freak balm in Ginger-head Man: Some like this balm, some can’t handle the buzz. I used to be unable to handle it. But check out my review of it here to read what changed my mind! If you struggle with liking it, definitely  get excited to read my review – it might cause you to re-think it too!

Comment below telling me what you got in your LippieBox!

Lip Freak? Here’s the Buzz!

Photo Jan 29, 9 00 39 PM

Hey there Lippie Loves! Here is the scoop on all the buzz about this balm!

Doctor Lip Bang’s Lip Freak is here to freak your lips out! It’s an all-natural lip balm in the scent Ginger-head man. When on your lips, the ginger scent is at comfortable volume that everyone can enjoy! It’s a noticeable scent that will have you sniffing your lips. Also has a taste of ginger if you lick your lips or happen to kiss someone. The brand also states it’s a fun kissing balm as well! 😉

This has a very sturdy cap so no worries of it opening on you! It carries a circus like feel to the packaging with the words “Lip Freak” dressed in marquee lights. It’s very moisturizing, has high shine with a smooth, soft, medium weight consistency.

Now, this balm claims to be “THE STRONGEST BUZZ BALM IN THE WORLD!” Which I’m here to say is true! This isn’t my first rodeo with this brand mind you. If you come from my Instagram account and have been around for a while, you would know this. I had the Bubble Trouble balm and innocently lathered this on. My lips couldn’t take the heat causing me to hate the balm although I really liked the scent!

With that knowledge, I went in a tad bit daintier which caused me to end up liking it. Putting on a lot of this product is not for the weak at heart as this balm knows how to buzz!
There is nothing like this product on the market that I’ve ever seen. It’s very unique! Definitely recommend trying it!
Also just a side note, in the ingredients list it states it has almond oil and cinnamon oil in it so if you’re allergic to either, just be warned.
Stay tuned for more reviews!

Oh Glo by Glory!

Hello my Lippie Loves! Here is a Review of Glory’s Glo 12 hour semi-matte liquid lipstick in the shade “Love Muffin”  which is a blue based Cherry Red. (Click here to shop!)

First off the packaging is super cute with the little hearts and it says “Glo Stix” on it which is a cute little pun! I like that there are instructions on the side of the box for newbies like me to understand how to use this! It’s cruelty-free, also comes with .14oz of product.
Now I’m not sure why it calls itself a semi-matte because it’s extremely matte once it dries! This is also a shade I could see working for most skin tones!

When I followed the instructions of using a balm first then doing a second layer to intensify the color, I had problems. It was super messy getting all over me including my teeth and somehow under my chin! Also with the second layer it would come off very easily when eating, drinking, or when I kissed my hand to test it.

So here is what you do to make it work: the balm is optional, if you do use balm use a lightweight formula and do NOT put on a second layer of the liquid lipstick. Yes it gives it a nice darkened shade but it will come off whereas the first coat is perfectly pigmented and mess free!
It does feel a little sticky even when it’s dried but it becomes fully matte to a beautiful color that doesn’t feather in its process of drying.   The blue tone to this shade ensures your teeth will not give off a yellow sheen.  Also it’s such a statement shade everyone will notice! I got a lot of compliments when wearing this. I used a lip balm over it to help the removing of the color from my lips which left a nice stain on my lips for a hint of color.

Overall it’s a great color to spice up your day or night plus it is easy to carry in your purse!

Stay tuned for more reviews from me!
