Lipsticks & Glosses from Myface Cosmetics

myface cosmetics lip pop gloss swatches Hollywood and I Like Boys

I’m relatively new to Myface Cosmetics but after last weeks look at their lil’ bling range, I decided to give their lip products a trial too. All products shown are for ‘fair’ skintones which is a relatively easy way of discovering which are the right colours for you to use. Other colours come available in ‘medium’ or ‘medium/dark’, again offering flattering tones within those ranges.

Strawberry Fields and Vintage Pink lipsticks.

Myface Cosmetics lipsticks come in at the sum of £9.99 a piece. I like the packaging (with clear lids so you can see the true lipstick colour) andthe lightweight satiny feeling of the fomulation. The colour is not opaque but is buildable and non-drying.

The lipglosses or ‘lip pops’ (priced £7.99) are in lightweight cheerful colours and offer a non-sticky finish to the lips. Shown below are Hollywood (left) and I Like Boys (right).

The lip glosses come in a nice range of colours all with a hint of gold shimmer. They are light and translucent, perfect for a casual daytime look or teamed with a matching lipstick for an evening.

So far I have enjoyed using all the myface products and they are unique in the design and layout of products categorised by skintone, however I fail to see why I would choose myface cosmetics over other brands. The colour ranges don’t vary much from other brands but do cost more money and in my opinion, the products don’t offer a unique selling point – unfortunately they don’t even smell very nice which would have been a saving grace.

I’m not going to give up on myface cosmetics because there are other products in the range still to be trialled and the lil’ bling products are unique but the basic range hasn’t excited my imagination.

What are your thoughts on Myface Cosmetics vs. other high street brands?

April Beauty Favourites

My favourite beauty products from April 2011 - MAC, YSL, Elemis, ELF, Madara, Max Factor

This is just a short list of products I’ve found myself regularly using over the last month which currently make up my daily beauty regime.

(Left to right) MAC Mineralize Skinfinish / Natural in Light Medium – a super fine light powder which I use for setting foundation or tinted moisturiser, perfect for warmer weather or if you don’t want full coverage.

YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch brush pen concealer – a must have for me for concealing under eye shadows, a formula that melts into the skin and brightens the eye area.

Madara decoface tinting fluid in Sunflower – I’m using this tinted moisturiser at the moment instead of full coverage foundation for a lighter texture and a hint of colour.

Maxfactor Masterpiece High Definition Mascara – Still the favourite mascara I’ve tried so far, it’s deep black which lengthens and doesn’t budge all day even in the heat.

Elemis Balancing Lavender Toner – A mild, non tightening formula which leaves my skin feeling refreshed. It also has a lovely light scent (if you like Lavender that is!)

E.L.F. Studio Cream Eyeliner in Black – This is a little pot of cream eyeliner which comes with an angled brush. I find it really easy to apply and it is longlasting – don’t wear it if you’re sunbathing or in the sun though as it melts off!

Lush – Street Party Bath Ballistic

lush street party bath ballistic

Tomorrow, I think there’s some sort of event on? I’ve heard it’s kind of a big deal so tonight I’ve decided to relax in the bath with a Street Party bath ballistic in preparation. OK, so maybe I don’t need a special occasion to use this bath ballistic, I am going to buy this in bulk at the weekend because it’s my favourite Lushy scent so far! Normally I go for the pink girly candy floss type flavours in Lush products but this has now topped my list of favourites.

I always smell Lush products and try to guess what’s in them before reading the description (does anyone else do that?!) and so on first inspection it seem like a lovely fresh citrusy smell with golden caramel and the ballistic itself is all sparkly with pink hearts in it (confetti?) and of course features a little Union Flag. The actual ingredients include Cognac (this may explain my sudden fascination) with orange and lime. It’s a really refreshing and uplifting scent and I’m slightly gutted this is only a limited edition until the end of April and that I missed it the first time around for the Queen’s Golden Jubilee.

Street Party bath ballistic is £2.95 available from Lush shops nationwide and online from April 2011 for a limited time only at

Also – look out for an actual Street Party happening in your local Lush shop the weekend of the 29th April – shops will be hanging out the bunting, giving out free tea and coffee and generally getting into the swing of the festivities!

Wait! What do you mean there’s a wedding tomorrow? Runs off to buy a hat…
