Best Product of 2010:Lip Balm

I’ve been using these almost every single day since I bought them !

 

ELF and Body Shop Lip balm/gloss

 

This is actually an old picture. There’s not so much left of them now.

I like the texture and their scent is great. The price (£1.50 for the ELf, and £1 for the BS one) is unbeatable!

Unfortunately ELF is discontinuing these (why? oh why?) but I have a couple of them as back up. My favourite by far is the pink one.

These have been reviewed before so I’ll stop now.

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

Superdrug is my drug!

Last Friday I had no plans after work so I decided to “get lost” in Superdrug. I love going through the different aisles and discover new things at the same time I picked up some of my regular routine hair/make up products.

Here’s what I bought:

 

My latest Superdrug haul

 

My old time favourites:

Simply Pure Superdrug’s eye makeup remover

 

Superdrug's Simply pure makeup remover

 

This works wonders without irritating my eyes. I now the toner as well. And it’s cheap! What else can ask for?

-Tressemme Curl Hair mousse

 

Tresseme's Curl Defining mousse

 

Very efficient in taming the frizz of my curly hair

-Also bought some new wipes I want to try out, also from Superdrug’s brand:

 

Simply Pure's gentle facial wipes

 

Optimum eye makeup remover pads

Revlon’s ColorStay eyeshadow quad and single eyeshadow:

 

Revlon ColorStay eyeshadows

 

 

Quad: Gems in Jewels

 

 

Single eyeshadow: Peacock Lustre

 

Very nice colors, love them! Not sure about the 12h stay though, even on top of my beloved ELF mineral primer…but they last a decent amount of time.

-A Nivea lip balm in Pearly Shine: very nice shimmery balm although a bit dry, perfect with some lip gloss on top

-And last but not least…some metallic Barry M nail polish! (was trying to find a nice dupe for OPI’s Louvre me Louvre me not)

 

Miss Sporty and Barry M metallic nail polishes (with flash)

 

 

Nice colors! (without flash)

 

The Barry M colors are Navy in 292 and Wild Purple in 161. Cannot read the color on Miss Sporty’s bottle though.

I have to say that I’m still in awe of these cheap Barry M  polishes 2 for £5). I just had navy on my nails and it lasted for 5 days without almost any chips, had great coverage with only one coat and with two the finish was flawless.

Cannot wait to wear the purple ones but I’m giving my nails a break…Not sure how long I’ll resist wihout painting them again!


ELF Lip Glosses +Body Shop Lip Balm

I’ve been using these for a while now…

Don't they look cute?

The ELF lip glosses are cutisimme in these little retro tins. Good amount of product for just £1.50.

They smell and taste great!

They are all very sheer (even though Berry POP looks scarily dark it just gives a nice touch of color to your lips). With Candy Fix they are my favourites, they really smell and taste like candy, Yummy!

The clear one (Just forgot its name though…)  gives a very faint shimmery clear gloss but tastes and smells like coconut, which I love. I use it as base before applying lipstick.

The Body Shop lip balm is in Watermelon. I think this was just £1. I love it because it really tastes very sugary and fruity and reminds me of watermelon chewing gum that I used to chew when I was a teenager! Funny how some scents are stuck on you forever.

Which are your favorite bargain lip glosses/balms?
