New Beauty Pick Ups

So I went shopping last weekend and bought some new bits, even though I didn't really need them. I've used these products non stop since I get them, so I'll add a little review for each one too.


This highlighter comes in four shades, I have Sunbeam and Gleam. I hadn't tried a liquid highlighter, until now. In my opinion, it's not as great as a powder - so I use the two together to get an extra bright glow.

Lime Crime Velvetines

I have got myself a nice little collection of the amazing liquid matte lipsticks from Lime Crime, so I thought I would do a post about them and obviously show you some swatches as well. Now I know that a lot of people still have some issues buying from them due to a number of controversies, but they added some information to their website for any worried customers - found here. As for the security breach on the website in 2014, there is the option to pay via PayPal instead of entering any bank and card details - I highly recommend PayPal as if there were any complications, it's a lot easier to sort out problems that way.

But enough of that, let's get down to business...

Now out of the nine shades I own, I think I've only worn 4 of them. They last through out the day, they don't smudge when you eat or drink and I haven't yet tested if their kiss proof - but I'm sure they are. Even though some of the ones I have may not be a normal colour to wear, like the green, I think their really wearable and it doesn't even matter if their an odd colour. If people stare, who cares! Out of all the liquid lipsticks I own, Lime Crime's velvetines will always be my favourites.

True Love Set - £45.77 £33.56
This is a set of three velvetines in the shades Cupid, True Love and Saint (from top to bottom). You can now buy these shades individually for £15.26 each.

Here we go again, some more monthly goals..

June Favourites


Beauty Favourites

Jeffree Star's Velour Liquid Lipstick in Celebrity Skin - mentioned in a previous post here.

Limecrime Velvetine in Marshmallow - £30.15 £24.12
Now this gorgeous nude shade is part of a duo set called '2 Moods Duo', it is described as a cotton candy nude and the second colour is Raven and is described as the darkest colour ever made without being black. I wore Marshmallow with my Jeffree Star Celebrity Skin, to give my lips a kind of ombre look and I think it kind of worked - well my mum said it looked nice! I am yet to try Raven - because it's such a dark purple, I'll probably leave that as an Autumn shade.

Limecrime Velvetine in Teddy Bear - £15.06
This shade was inspired by Melanie Martinez and is described as a lilac brown. It's an utterly gorgeous  shade that anyone could pull off. I'm really loving brown/dark nude lip colours at the moment, so this is a winner.
