Rimmel Royal Gloss Delicious Lipgloss in 301 Moreish

Rimmel Royal Gloss are the type of lipglosses I'd wear over lipstick as it's too sheer for me on it's own. It comes in a squeezy tube which I think is the most hygienic way a lipgloss can be packaged in. 

The texture is thin but not runny and non sticky but very glossy. I would also like to point out about the major thing about this gloss that stands out and that is the scent and flavour, it's very strong but I happen to like it. It reminds me of the orange flavoured lollipops and tastes as if it's supposed to be eaten. As it's quite a thin lipgloss without any tackiness it doesn't last very long on the lips and also for the fact I keep licking my lips with this stuff on that also takes away the wear time. 

Royal Gloss contains Royal Jelly and contains Vitamins A, C and E. I find this lipgloss nicely hydrating. 

301 Moreish is a extremely sheer jelly candy pink

MUA Professional 3in1 Extreme Contour Liner in Shade 4 Sea Blue

I wouldn't of thought it but this angled shape makes it very easier to use and get a precise line. The creamy formula glides on effortlessly with even pigmentation. As it's a twist up mechanism you won't be needing to sharpen it and you wouldn't need it to be either as this liner seems to keep it's shape at the moment anyway. The eyeliner comes in matte black packaging with silver writing and feels very sturdy and definitely way up market for something that costs £1.50

At £1.50 these MUA these liners are only 50p more than their standard liners which really isn't bad if you ask me, it also comes boxed with a bunch of eyeliner tips on the back. I find I don't have any issues at all with this eyeliner, only for the fact that they need to bring out some fun shades, the eight colours they have out already are just a little too basic but nevertheless useful. 

Sea Blue is a creamy medium yes sea blue with just the right amonut of deep inkiness but still stands out with it's perfect blue hues. I don't currently have a similar blue liner in my collection like it.

MUA Love Hearts Lip Balm in Great Lips

As you probably well know budget makeup brand MUA have released a new collection of 'Love Hearts' yes the sweets! It consists of a new line of tinted lip balms and nail polishes.

Great Lips was the only shade of tinted lip balms they had left in Superdrug at the time and to be honest I like the look of all the colours so it didn't bother me about what shade I wanted to try out first, now what does bother me is that now I've tried this one I want to own them all but anyhow at £2.00 each you won't feel that guilty. 

I'd describe the shade 'Great Lips' as a nude cream beige toned peach, it's a very easy to wear shade and will go with any look. I find the pigmentation is pretty good, especially for a tinted lip balm, the colour is so easy to build too without it going gloopy. Some of you would hate the pot but personally I don't mind about pots too much now as I use a lip brush to apply.

The consistency is quite thick but very hydrating and extremely creamy. It is absolutely not sticky and I found it lasted just over an hour, it won't last though if you're eating. Once it was gone my lips did feel very soft and I absolutely love the scent and taste which is like a sweet caramel but not too overpowering.

Fashionista Fashion Secret Gel Eyeliner in Cute Route

After previously purchasing Fashionista's 'Style Queen' gel liner, I really didn't like the formula too much but I loved the colour and Fashionista seem to have a lot of colours compared to those brands that will only bring out a standard black. I thought maybe I had a bad one or maybe other shades would work better. 

Cute Route is a far worse formula than Style Queen, it seems to be even more patchy and the pigmentation isn't up to scratch. It applies just as creamy but far too creamy with missing pigmentation. It's hard to get an even finish, the formula isn't to my liking but the brush doesn't help either as it's really bendy. It's a shame as the colours in this gel liner range are a breath of fresh air and very pretty. 

I won't be falling for the pretty colours again as the formula just isn't right and for £6.00 I'd prefer to get a different liner even if it's not a gel it'd probably work better.

Cute Route is a true metallic lilac with faint silver micro shimmers.

Revlon Matte Lipstick in 010 Wine Not

Revlon Matte lipsticks are one of my definitely a favourite of mine in a matte formula. I wouldn't say they were moisturising but they aren't drying either and last hours on me. The packaging is basic but classy and has a matte finish to complement the actual product inside. I love the way the product just glides on the lips, it's a matte lipstick that applies like butter but still being opaque and pigmented and of course being a true matte.

Wine Not is a matte deep rich burgundy red with brown undertones. It's a stunning bold shade that will get you noticed in my opinion it's a perfect Goth shade. On application it actually darkens at the tip of the bullet so that's probably why the bullet looks a lot lighter than the actual swatches.

I detect no scent or taste.

Vampiress Beauty Randomness 33

Possibility Lemon Cheesecake Lip Balm- Comes in 4 different flavours and found at Savers for a £1.00 each. I chose Lemon Cheesecake because it's my favourite cake to exist. It's very greasy and glossy but it lives up to the smell of real Lemon Cheesecake and that's what I love.

Boots No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in 60 Velvet Kiss- Rediscovered in my makeup stash, it's a lovely long lasting lipstick that is actually quite creamy and not really drying. Velvet Kiss is a deep and dark warm brown toned burgundy shade that is delicately shimmered.

Fearne Glossy Lips Set- The last of my Boots Xmas sales haul finally. Contains 4 lipglosses that come with a standard slanted tip sponge wand. All of these are completely non sticky and very smooth, thick and slippery in texture. The first two are sparkly while the last two have a creamy finish. None have individual names.

 ^Pearly sparkly sheer white, you can see my unpigmented lips in their full glory.
 ^Sheer coral pink with very slight micro shimmers
 ^Mauve creamy pink, has to be my favourite of the bunch due to the descent pigmentation and even finish.
^Pink toned red, pigmented but absoutely not opaque. This one is my least favourite as it's very streaky, runny and hard to apply. This one is probably better for layering over lipstick.
Overall not bad glosses, each have no scent or taste. They aren't really that special though and if they come out again this year I wouldn't repurchase or be hunting them down on Ebay.
