Vampiress Beauty Randomness 26

Barry M Lip Liner in 12 Fuchsia- This one packs a punch, it's extremely pigmented, bright, bold and creamy. Want a bright hot pink lip liner? Look no further.

Lacura Anti-Ageing Hand Cream for Mature Skin- Although I don't yet have mature skin, I decided to purchase anyway and since then I've been neglecting all my other handcreams. This budget-brand from Aldi has yet to disappoint me. The product applies quite thick and really softens and moisturises my hands without any grease and sinks in straight away. It comes with a cucumber scent that is very refreshing

Bourjois Effet 3D Cosmic Gloss in 20 Rose Symphonic- Recently discovered in my makeup stash. A beautiful light pink which pays off an untold amount of little sparkles that aren't too gritty, with a scent of sherbet and no stickiness. I'm not sure if this is still available from Bourjois anymore, although some of their new ranges look very nice.

N-Spa Fruit Pomegranate Butter & Milk Shower Sorbet- I'm in love with this shower gel completely. It's rich, moisturising, creamy and lathers like a dream. It also happens to smell like Jelly Babies, so it's really hard not to eat. You can pick up the N-Spa range at Asda.

John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Spray

Before using this product from John Frieda, I seriously thought this just wouldn't work whatsoever. I always thought my hair colour was a light brown, but yes my mum who is a qualified hairdresser measured me to her hair colour chart and infact I'm a dark blonde.

John Frieda's Lightening spray is specially for your roots when you want to prolong your blonde hair before making a costly trip to the hairdressers. (I'm lucky my mum does my roots). Or if you're a fair haired girl already and want to go lighter.

On the box it says that it is not suitable medium brown or darker shades of hair. So anything above is fine. 

The spray is applied after freshly washed towel dried hair so it is really easy to do, the product  texture is just like a body mist which you spray to the areas you want to lighten and comb through, then you just style as you normally would do. Apparently the lightening effect works it's best with heat so the norm blowdrying and straightening makes better results. To be honest I rarely ever blowdry my hair, I let my hair air dry after brushing it through in the evening and straighten in the morning.

To be fair in this review I could only use this 3 times because my roots were long already. My hair is just too thick and long for this 100ml bottle to cover the length. So as I'm getting my roots dyed again. I definitely will be spraying this as the roots come in! 

Anyhow the bad thing about this product is you can easily forget to do this and you have to be willing to keep up with it. Results are not straight away. 

RRP is £6.99 and is avaliable in most places from chemists to supermarkets.

 After 3 uses
 It is recommened that you use this product as least 10 times but seriously by these results, for just 3 goes I'm thrilled and will carry on using this product.

Disclaimer- This sample was sent to me by PR for review purposes, this does never mean I will give a false review. All my reviews are always my total honest opinions.

Figs & Rouge 100% Organic Balm Rambling Rose

This Figs & Rouge balm has elegant vintage packaging, lovely organic ingredients a multi-use product. What's not to love?

Plenty for me anyway, the scent is evil. It's like waxy papery roses, a type of smell when you think your product has gone bad. I'm seriously confused as I know that there's more than a handful of beauty bloggers that are loving this, the scent too.

The texture is solid but very thin and greasy once touched by your skin, then suddlenly it dissappears within 5 minutes and I'm left with how my lips felt before. I don't think I'll use it on my face or body. I don't want to smell like expired wax or feel greasy. 

RRP is £2.99 from Boots

Sorry Figs & Rouge love the packaging but not the contents. Hope there will be other balms in your range I will like. I may just have a bad one.

Accessorize Illusion Eye Shadow in 21 Iris

I cannot rave about this Accessorize eyeshadow enough, it's so creamy, smooth, pigmented and blends like a dream and costs just £4.00 although there are some shades on Superdrug's website going for £2.00.

Illusion shadows are housed in a easy to open butterfly gold and grey compact. I think all of these shadows have a strong frosty shimmery finish and they're definitely not powdery.

Iris is a very frosty blue lilac toned lavender. Anyone who is a lilac fan, this is a must have!

The negative thing about this Ilusion shadow, it makes me want to collect all of them in the range, which is bad.

Lip Smacker Coca-Cola Cherry Lip Gloss

 I'm 22 years old but yep, I'm still in love with Lip Smackers and the rest of Bonne Bell. I have quite a lot of their lip products in my collection. I absolutely love the different flavours, scents and packaging. 

The only odd place they seem to sell Lip Smackers in the UK is Claire's or sometimes they will have a few of their balms by the till in Primark.

This is the first time I've seen Coca-Cola Cherry in a tube wand lipgloss form and I couldn't help not snapping it up and it actually has a little splashing of colour with sparkles. It's sheer but detectable, think of warm bitten lips that twinkle. It's non-sticky and way too yummy. I swear I can even detect a hunt of fizz in the flavour. Obviously these do not last 5 minutes on your lips, but I don't mind reapplying.

RRP is £5.00

Avon Colortrend Kiss 'N Go Lipstick in Vino Disco

This is one of the darker shades of Avon's cheaper lipstick range. I found that the lighter colours were very sheer. I love the moisturising formula and the vanilla scent of these lipsticks but weren't too happy with the previous two shades I reviewed.

Vino Disco is actually pigmented, it's a very pearly warm deep burgundy. I love how it glides over my lips.
Wearing time is average but wears off evenly. I can imagine this to be a beautiful Autumn shade.

I wish Avon would use better swatches on their website as they're are completely off.

RRP is £3.50 but usually Avon will have offers.
