Trying Primark Makeup | Metal Matte Liquid Lipsticks ♡ Possible Kylie Cosmetics Dupes?

Hi guys,

A few weeks ago I went into Primark just to look around while I was waiting for my sister; and everyone knows that you can't go into Primark and come out empty handed. They always have bargains!

I saw these two metal matte liquid lipsticks.

They were £2 each so I thought I'd buy them and see what they're like!

Top: Goddess
Bottom: Queen

♡ Goddess: a deep red colour. A bit brighter than Kylie's metal matte lipstcik called Reign.
Queen: a warm golden colour. A possible dupe for Kylie's metal matte lipstick called King K??

These liquid lipsticks are very very pigmented. The above swatches are just one layer!!

The only downside is if you put too much on then the product goes lumpy and every time your lips touch (which is the majority of the time lol) the product starts to move around your lips and lump up.

However, one thin layer is fine! 

The product itself smells very sweet, a tad chemically but not that bad in my opinion.

If Primark introduced more colours I would love to buy more - they probably aren't as good as Kylie's metal matte liquid lipsticks but for the price you can't complain!

Have you tried these lipsticks? Do you own any Primark makeup?

Let me know! I'd love to try out more of Primark's makeup!

Keep Skin Hydrated this Winter with Sebamed* ♡

Hi guys,

Before Christmas I was lucky enough to be sent these products by Sebamed

I have been using these three products for a few weeks now, and I feel I have used them enough to write a review on them! 

I was given a Cleansing Bar £3.99 (which is now unfortunately out of stock), Anti-dry Hydrating Body Lotion £7.29 (but currently reduced to £6.20) and Lip Defense Balm £2.99.

Cleansing Bar: Out of the three products this is the one I used the least because it's in a bar. Yes it sounds stupid lol but I prefer liquid products when in the shower, I've never really liked bars of product. 

However it is a really good product. It's 100% soap and alkali free - for those with sensitive skin. This cleansing bar can be used for mild and thorough pore-deep skin cleansing. Also in the reviews one person has been using this since 1988... so it really is good!

♡ Lip Defense Balm: This lip balm has triple protection! It regenerates, nutures and defends. I really like this lip balm, it definitely does keep my lips hydrated. Especially through the 'matte lipstick' trend lol. 

This lip balm also protects you from the rays of the sun, with an spf of 30! That's more than most sun creams!!

♡ Anti-dry Hydrating Body Lotion: This is probably my fave product of out of the three! It's probably one of the best body lotions I've tried. It's so hydrating and lightweight. It's not a thick cream and doesn't take ageees to soak in. 

The website says using this will boost hydration by 26% in just 3 weeks - how amazing is that?!

Overall I've been loving these products. When I use all the body lotion I will definitely be purchasing some more!

Have you tried any products from Sebamed?

Essence Light Up Your Face Luminizer Palette | Review & Swatches ♡

Hi guys!

Today I will be reviewing this pretty palette! This is the Essence Light Up Your Face Luminizer Palette!

I got this highlight palette in my last Glossybox (you can see what else I got here, if you're interested!)

I can't believe this palette is only £3!! If you're on a budget and would like to try a new highlight palette, then this will be right up your street!

The palette has three gorgeous shades;

Nude Highlighter: golden sheer powder with a subtle glow

Rosé Highlighter: shimmering pearl powder (the shimmeriest one - that's not a word but you understand!)

Golden Beige Highlighter: beige powder, less shimmer than the other two shades in my opinion.

Top to Bottom: Nude Highlighter, Rosé Highlighter & Nude Beige Highlighter

Personally, this palette isn't shimmery enough for me (probably because I own ABH Glow Kits and they're amazing lol.

I'd say this palette is for an every day very natural, barely-there glow and for people that want a subtle glow.

Nevertheless, for £3 this palette is amazing value for money - that's for sure!

Have you tried any Essence highlighters? If so, let me know what you think of them!
