Collection 2000 Lasting Colour Lipstick in 6 Bubblegum

Collection 2000 recently revamped their line and yes their lipsticks with a load of new shades. 
The packaging and formula of their lipsticks has changed aswell as the packaging. The casing of the lipsticks is a shiny black with a metallic pink decoration of their brand name. 

It's not quite often that you can get these type of shades that look similar to a MAC Amplified Creme lipstick at a drugstore. Especially at £2.99  it's a good lipstick.
Bubblegum is exactly like a bubblegum pink it's bright but milky and it definitely looks more of a bright pink than it does in my lip swatch. There's not one dot of shimmer and it gives off a cream finish. The pigmentation and opaqueness is amazing and it doesn't dry out my lips and gives me long lasting wear. Not only that it also comes with SPF15.

The only criticism I give to the lipstick is the faint plastic strawberry scent that makes the price show, though it's not strong and it does disappear quickly once on the lips and there is no taste. I reckon they still could've put in a nicer scent. I loved the candy scent they had on their older lipsticks

Vampiress Beauty Randomness 20

N.Y.C Color Wheels, sometimes you can find them in pound shop nowadays. Though they haven't really been discontinued for long and you may be able to still get them from some Superdrugs.

Scarlet Letters- Consists of red, brown and mauvey tones. This is really nicely pigmented and a very smooth texture. Swirled together makes a beautiful blood red colour.

Pink Cheek Glow- Very very sheer, warm pinks, tans and whites. These both have a satin finish.
You can see on the colours swatched alone are barely visible and I'm ultra pale. Still has a smooth texture but limited pigmentation and it's fine to have a heavy hand on this.

Beauty UK Glitter Eyeliner- Picked this up from Superdrug, this isn't bad at all. The glitters are small but they aren't stingy. Not  great glitter like the Collection 2000 ones but what glitter eyeliner is? They're of course much better than some of the brands out there offering them for much more.
A nice metallic warm pink colour.

Carmex Mint- Carmex yet releases another flavour to the UK. I absolutely love Carmex but this one is my least favourite. It's a sweet mint and it's the same consistency as the other tubed versions. Just I don't think the scent goes with the formula somehow, it's weird. I do hope they'll release new scents maybe.. Hmm Apple.. Peach?

MAC Shadestick in Cakeshop- Comes from the 'Sugar Sweet Collection'  I probably don't give this one much love and it's my only shadestick, I don't think I like the formula as much as I do NYX Jumbo pencils. It's like a tarnished silver with pretty sparkles, just not creamy like NYX pencils. :)

Milani Lipstick in Royal Ruby- This lipstick is like Royalty to me, it has to be one of my favourite reds but it's hard to come by as Milani is not available in the UK.  It's creamy, lusciously pigmented and reminds me of a garnet jewel.  It's a rich and bright pink bluey red with gorgeous soft shimmer.
Yep, just look how much I've used of it. :)

Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Amethyst

Enriched with Vitamin E and promises intense colour, not bad for £3.99?
Sleek True Colour lipsticks come in small black oval type case with that famous rubbery NARS material. 

Amethyst is utterly gorgeous, it's a purple pink which is almost magenta with blue iridescence. I reckon this will compliment and go perfectly with MAC Magenta lip liner.  
The texture is smooth, non slippery and won't migrate anywhere else apart from where you want it, the longevity is not bad either. 

I'm trying my hardest to think of a negative side to this lipstick and I cannot, arghh. I guess the swatch on their website looks nothing like the real thing though!

No scent or taste.

Evil Shades Order

This is my first order from Evil Shades, I was sent some products to review but I was so impressed I had to purchase some myself. :)
As you can see all is packaged gorgeously. I ordered 3 shadows and a lipgloss, she also sent me 2 shadow samples which I didn't know about which was so very kind!

L2R Phyrra's Fantasy, Lucia, Zombie

Phyrra's Fantasy- (Warm toned bright pink with an eruption of aqua shimmer) Shimmery Petal pink, a very warm delicate shade of pink. 

Lucia- (A bright bold red with bright pink shimmer and a subtle violet shift) This is from the Auld
Lang Syne collection. It's gorgeous very intense pink/red and you can really see the violet lacing. 

Zombie- (Blackened Red toned Burgundy wine with shimmer) This is my favourite ever eyeshadow from Evil Shades, I was sent a sample and I couldn't get enough so I ordered a full-size. I was looking for the right toned black/red and this is it.

L2R Pencil Skirt, Wiggle Dress.
These are the samples I were sent, they happen to be from the new Pin Up Girls collection.

Pencil Skirt- (Straight sleek blue with a sexy pink shift) A pretty light primary blue, the texture of this shadow is soft and light as clouds.

Wiggle Dress- (Mysterious carbon black with sexy red micro glitter to get your wiggle going) A rich black with chunky red glitz, you need a nice cream base like NYX jumbo pencils for the red glitter to stay. My swatches aren't with anything underneath.

Hardcore Lips in Just Like Candy- (Soft sweet lilac with multi color shimmer) This one isn't opaque but isn't totally sheer either. I wanted a nice shimmery lilac to compliment my lilac lipsticks and this is it! However the colour reminds me of a fairy on it's own.
It smells and tastes like fruity candy and isn't sticky.
