Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick in 24 Rose xoxo

Ever since Revlon Lip Butters were released lots of other brands seem to be bringing out their own versions. It's also happening with the chubby crayon sticks and maybe more so.

Bourjois Shine Edition Lipsticks claim to be 'Ultra Shine Radiant Colour And The Comfort Of A Balm'

24 Rose xoxo- A semi-sheer medium pinky mauve rose' it does have a touch of micro shimmer but it's barely noticeable. 

As this seems to be a semi-sheer colour it doesn't quite have the pigmentation of a lipstick, the shade that I have seems to be a tiny bit sheerer than any of the Revlon Lip Butters I own. 

Rose xoxo does apply very smoothly, glossy but in a balmy sort of way without the heaviness. It's very silky and not the slightest bit sticky or gloopy. 

This lipstick doesn't last very long on me, around just an hour without eating or drinking. I think that by being a very light lip product it doesn't help. Other than that a lovely lip loving product.

No scent or taste. RRP £5.99

Holika Holika Jewel-Light Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in 07 One Carat Diamond

Holika Holika's Jewel-Light pencils come in 20 shades, though not all sellers will stock all of them.
All shades do look gorgeous. 

-Water Resistant
-Smudge Resistant
-Pigmented Colour

One Carat Diamond- A beautiful frosty, icy, iridescent and pigmented white with slight silver undertones. Very pretty and something I haven't come across before in a eyeliner pencil form. It's perfect for the inner corners of your eyes for the glazed doll like look or for that matter anywhere you want to accent your eye look. 

I've had no problems with it moving around or smearing and it was easy enough to remove with makeup remover.

You can get this for around £3.00 to £4.00 including postage/packaging. To me this feels much more like a higher end product to me.
