Fade Out White Anti Shadow Brightening Eye Cream

Fade Out White Anti Shadow Brightening Eye Cream claims to reduce puffiness, targets fine lines and wrinkles and brightens skin tone. Now for me this is all I want in a eye cream, something that can do all those things in one. There are a lot of eye creams on the market which seem to do one or the other in either help lines and wrinkles or you'll have to buy another one for dark circles. 

Fade Out Eye Cream comes in a slim squeeze tube with a small nib, in my opinion all eye creams need to be this way as it's more hygienic. I find that a little goes a long way and it's easy to pat delicately under the eye area and sinks in straight away. The formula is quite thin but not at all watery and has pale beige colour to it. I can assure you that the colour isn't visible once applied properly, I think it has something to do with the tint claim for instant brightening. 

I've been using this eye cream for about over two months and for me I'm seeing results, while it's obvious my dark circles haven't disappeared and I don't think they ever will. I can see improvement in my under eye area. I'm less puffed and my shadows aren't as prominent and it seems to have a moisturising effect as I haven't suffered from dryness from under my eyes since I've been using it. 

I like to apply this in the morning and before I got to bed.
Overall I really like this eye cream and have repurchased another for when this one runs out.

RRP is £8.99

NYX Round Lip Gloss in Vamp Red

I love NYX Round Lipsticks but as for their Round Lipglosses it's a different story. NYX Round Lip Gloss comes in 36 shades which is a vast variety for a £3.00 lipgloss. All glosses contain Mineral Oil and Vitamin E

Vamp Red- Is a deep wine with a hint of plum, although it does look quite brown in the tube it's not like that once on the skin. 

The pigment is plentiful but being far too watery and runny is what ruins it, it's hard to get an even finish and the gloss ends up running between the corners of your lips which makes you look like a messy eater. As for the scent that's not really nice either and reminds me of washing up liquid, not a strong taste but still...washing up liquid scent?

Well this gloss isn't for me and I won't be purchasing anymore Round Lipglosses. Surely this has to be the worst product in the NYX line as really I think that generally NYX offers some really nice quality products. I think their Jumbo Pencils are the best in chunky pencil form.

Balmi Lip Balm SPF15 in Raspberry

Balmi lip balms are just like EOS in terms of packaging and similar price range. Though I have not tried any EOS products apparently many have stated that they dried out their lips.

Balmi Lip Balms come in a round smooth silicone ball type packaging and opens like a screw top bottle. The balm inside is the same shape which makes the application very quick and easy. There is also a handy little key chain attached. 

Balmi contains lip loving ingredients such as Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil.

The scent of Raspberry is very true and sweet with a slight tartness and no horrible taste
As for being moisturising, I find that Balmi does a good job and to me doesn't dry out my lips at all. However the texture is quite thin and greasy so it will leave a glossy finish. 

RRP is £4.99 and there's 5 flavours to choose from.
