Lip Products : Part two, Lip Gloss

Hello, so here we are at the second part of my three part lip product reviews, here I am proud to present lip gloss. In a timely fashion no less!

Naked - Urban Decay
This was a tiny little lip gloss that came with the Naked 2 palette, I love the colour as it is a darker pink-purple tint. I wore it only once and it did not seem to last very long on, it has a bit of shine and a hint glitter. Although its small I think its rather cute!

Colour: 3.5/5
Packaging: 5/5
Feels on the Lips: 4/5
Overall: 4/5

Glossy Gloss - Berry Blush - Elf
While I don't mind the colour I really dislike the formula, it's sticky and slimy and I do not like how it feels. I wore it about three times and then I did not wear it again, although it was not very expensive. It is very glossy though, so if that is all you are after this is not a bad choice.

Colour: 4/5
Packaging: 2/5
Feels on the Lips: 1/5
Overall: 2.5/5


 Cranberry - The Body Shop
I like this colour its is quite a old lip gloss and it is nearly finished, although it wears off after a bit, it is pretty, and it also smells good, which is always a nice bonus!

Colour: 4/5
Packaging: 3/5
Feels on the Lips: 3.5/5
Overall: 3.5/5


Hypershine Gloss- Vixen - ELF
This I think is suppose to be mimicking the stila packaging, the formal is sticky and a little hard to work with. I have worn this a couple of times, the colour is a bit sheer, but it is easy to build up, and for the price it is not a bad gloss, however there is probably better less sticky formulas, although not for the price.

Colour: 3/5
Packaging: 3/5
Feels on the Lips: 3/5
Overall: 3/5


Minty Lip Gloss - New York City - ELF
So when they state minty they are not lying, it is so minty it is a bit uncomfortable to wear, sticky and to be honest I dislike wearing. I think it's pretty colour, but everything else about it, I am not crazy about.

Colour: 2/5
Packaging: 3/5
Feels on the Lips: 1/5
Overall:1.5

Glazewear Shine - Iced Pink - Avon
I love this colour, it is a pale pink and the shimmer, although it does not wear long, it is not to expensive so it can be reapply again and again. The formula is not to sticky, but for Avon I was quite impressed with this.

Colour: 4.5/5
Pakaging: 3/5
Feels on the Lips: 4/5
Overall: 4/5


 Natural Lip Gloss - In Disguise - Sula
It taste and smells like candy, which makes this instantly fun. The colour is sheer, so it looks more like gloss, although this is probably of the colour I got in the glymm box. However I love the smell! Yum!

Colour: 2/5
Packaging: 4/5
Feels on the Lips: 3/5
Overall: 3.5/5


Gloss- Nude- Lise Watier
I love the colour of this lip gloss, it is shimmery and thick enough the colour can clearly be seen, it can be a little thick at times but I like this lip gloss, I do not know the price as I got this in my Luxe box and it is sample size, but it is a nice little lip gloss.


Colour: 5/5
Packaging: 3.5/5
Feels on the Lips: 4/5
Overall: 4.5/5


Social Gloss - G'vinity
This is just a clear gloss, it is pretty expensive for just a clear gloss, however the formula feels very nice on the lips and a hint of a shimmer. I like that it is so subtle! I really enjoy this lip gloss, however the downsize is the full size is rather small and expensive for the amount of product you receive.


Colour: 4.5/5
Packaging: 2/5
Feels on the Lips: 4.5/5
Overall: 4/5


Also, I would like to point out that I have taken the ELF minty gloss off about 45 minutes ago and I can still feel the icy cold sensation on my lips.

Lip products Part one: Lip balms

Hello, so I have been gone a while (three months to be exact as blogger reminds me!), mostly because of school and because I am great at procrastinating. Here I am going to shall the current lip products I have and love and the ones I sort of just have.

I was cleaning out my makeup box (I really want a vanity table or a nice drawers, but currently as sad it is my makeup is all storage in different make up bags under my sink in a cardboard box!). I noticed just how many lip products I have, so here they are and my thoughts on them.

Lip Balms:

 Peach Float - Nintendo
This is a pink lip balm that has Princess Peach from Super Mario on it. I was on holiday and my lips were getting very chapped to the point of being sore so I went to look for lip balm, and I found this, I bought it mainly because it was cute and I love Princess Peach, plus it seems like peaches! However I have to admit it is not the more useful lip balm as it does not moisturize very much, but it is cute and peachy!

Moisturizing: 1.5/5

Tiger Lily - Burt's Bee Tinted Lip Balm
This product at first I wanted to try but now that I have I can with confidence state that I much prefer the original Burt's Bees. I found this product to not go on smoothly and the product to be a bit thick. The colour is nice however I feel personally, if I wanted colour I could find better in a lip gloss or lipstick.

Feel of product on my lips : 2.5/5
Moisturizing: 4/5

Mango Butter - Burt's Bee
I adore this lip balm, it is not too expensive so I do not feel bad about lathering on as much as I do of this lip product. I love how it feels on my lips and I do love that it has ingredients I more or less understand. I especially favored this in the winter, however even in the spring and summer I think lip balm does have its place. It is my favorite.

'Tis the Season- Cinnamon Winter- Avon
Just as the Peach lip balm I am easily taken in by cute packaging and a cheap price tag, this is how this cute thing became a stocking stuffer for me from my grandmother! I like it because it has a different taste/smell then minty, so it does add something a bit different, the feel on my lips is not that great, and to be honest I have only used it a handful of times, but it is so cute!

Baby Lips- Pink Punch- Maybelline
Well, I saw this on sale for 3.99 today and I decided to give it a go as I have seen it mention by a lot of beauty/makeup bloggers, and I so far am not disappointed. The colour is sheer, so it is at heart a lip balm than a lip gloss, however the colour can be built up and it feels very moisturizing on, as I have just bought it today I cannot attest to all the impressive stats it advertises on its packaging, so this is my impression after first use.

Principessa - Lip Balm
If there were any contender that would rival Burt's Bees as my favorite lip balm this would be it! I love this product, it has a nice smell and it feels good on, although it can get a bit sticky. It says that Shea Butter and Vitamin E is added to the formula, although I am unsure of the significantly of those it is moisturizing.

Feel of product on my lips : 3.5/5

Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 -Mint/Pear- Kiehls
I have two of these as there was a very good sale. I love the smell of the pear one, although they are both quite nice on the lips, I think these have  a great formulas, however they lose points as although they are very nice I would not buy these at full price. The reason that I enjoy Burt's Bess is I can use it a lot and be unconcerned of price, unlike this one. However it is fair to state that my lips are not that dry to begin with so perhaps someone with drier lips may find them worth the price.
