Maybelline NY Baby Lips Loves Color Lip Balm Flat Lay

Baby Lips have been THE runaway hit in the lip balm category. It seems no matter who you stop on the street to ask a lady which is their favourite lip balm, the answer is “Maybelline NY Baby Lips” 97%* of the time. I am definitely one of those girls and I couldn’t have imagined in a million years that Maybelline could improve on the Baby Lips phenomenon. But they did. How? They added colour!!!

Ahhh yes. Colour. I totally forgot about that stuff. Maybelline took the already fabulous Baby Lips balm and added some hot tints to them, resulting in Baby Lips Loves Color lip balm. So far there are 4 shades in the collection and I am going to show you the full lip swatches as well as share my review.

Maybelline NY Volum' Express The Falsies Everlasting Mascara

Wearing mascara in summer is usually one of my most painful tasks. Summer is the worst time for my allergies and my eyes water like a fountain. They sting, they burn and I constantly feel the need to rub them, so you can imagine wearing mascara isn’t the most pleasant thing.

It made bold claims about being flake-proof, smudge-proof and the most powerful waterproof formula Maybelline has ever created. Of course I wanted to put it to the test and see if it would withstand my weeping.

Most mascaras, even waterproof, will never get through a morning with my allergies. If it isn’t smudging it is usually bits breaking off and landing in my eye. The claims of Maybelline’s latest release in the Volum’ Express The Falsies franchise gave me hope, but did it work? I think my review will answer that for you.  Continue Reading

The biggest category is definitely colour, with lots of new nail polish and makeup lines to keep you drowning in a rainbow coloured pool.

Let’s take a look at what has me buzzing this month. Continue Reading

Drew Barrymore Flower Cosmetics Line

Drew Barrymore has been the face for Lancôme and CoverGirl in the past decade but now Drew is tackling a new frontier with her very own colour cosmetic range called Flower. The name of the line is an obvious pick for Drew, being that her film production company is called Flower Films and it is a name that fits well with Drew’s persona.

Deciem NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum

Have you noticed there’s been a bit of chatter about copper peptides in skincare lately? The biggest player on the scene right now is NIOD’s Copper Amino Isolate Serum (CAIS), and it has people swearing that this is a liquid version of the second coming.

Unfortunately when an ingredient becomes trendy we see the market flooded with products claiming to be using the best of it. Copper Peptides are that hot-new ingredient right now but what exactly are they? I’ve chatted with Deciem’s co-CEO, Nicola Kilner, to get the lowdown on copper peptides and how you can make sure you buy a product that works.  Continue Reading
