The Verdict

NARS Velvet Lip Glide is so dense and rich in pigment that it leaves your lips looking deliciously glossy. It comes in a cute and understated packaging. I’m using this beautiful vamp colour called Unspeakable. To get this really glossy look I applied on a few layers. I love this gloss, it comes in many shades from nudes to vampire. I already have the colour Stripped and I will be adding more to my collection. It’s so worth the £23.00, I highly recommend!

The Verdict

I am loving this colour!! It’s the perfect vampire shade. However I had to be generous, applying on a few layers to achieve the full potential of this lipstick. Retailing at £26, it is a little on the high end of lipstick prices. Yes, the packaging is slick, the lid is magnetic and snaps on in a very sophisticated way. But does this warrant spending £26? The sensible part of me says no, but the naughty side of me says this colour is banging. It’s a good lipstick, it is moisturising and goes on very silky giving your lips a beautiful shine. NARS claims that this lipstick gives a full coverage in a single stroke, but I disagree with this claim as I had to apply quite a few layers to get full coverage. Although I like this lipstick, I’m not in a rush to buy more shades from this range as I feel that there isn’t anything majorly special about it that makes it stand out from other lipsticks.

The Verdict

This lusciously silky matte liquid lipstick comes in many beautiful colours. The quality compares to other popular matte liquid lipsticks like Huda Beauty’s. The 7ml bottle will go a long way as the pigment is so good that you won’t even have to use lip liner!

This matte liquid lipstick doesn’t give you that horrible sticky, patchy feeling like you get with some of the cheaper liquid matte lipsticks on the market, nor does it look dodgy and wrinkly when you top it up. It smells amazing and glides on effortlessly, as you can see from the video.

At £25, this lipstick is on the expensive side. But it is luxurious and will last all night (believe me, it lasted through a three course dinner and drinks!). I am a fan, and I will probably be adding more colours to my collection. I hope you enjoyed reading my Lipstick Of The Week. Please read my blog every Monday to see what lipstick I will be trying next.

Review | Foreo Luna Mini

Foreo Luna Mini

This year I decided to add this little device into my skincare routine. I chose the Fereo Luna Mini, which uses T-Sonic™ technology to help break down oil and dirt in your skin. It is made of a silicon material which means it is hygienic and non abrasive on the skin. Unlike devices that uses bristle heads, this does not need to be replaced regularly and is suitable for daily use.

What it looks like

The Luna Mini comes in many colours including very cute pastel colours, but I was worried that over time my makeup would stain the pastel colours so I chose Fushia, it looks adorable on my bathroom shelf. On one side it has thinner touch-points, suitable for gentle cleansing. It features thicker touch-points grouped at the top for precision cleansing for areas like around your nose and on the reverse side it has broader touch-points which I use for cleansing after wearing heavy makeup.

Features

I was really impressed that it has up to 300 uses from a single full charge. I have friends who use Foreo Luna devices and say that they have only charged it once in a whole year! It is fully waterproof which means you can use it in the shower. For the under eye area, it has less intense settings, and it pulsates so you can keep track of how long you have cleansed each area of your face. Charging is easy as it comes with a USB charger cable, although you won’t have to charge it regularly.

Is it worth the price tag?

I must note that I have the older version. Foreo have now released a model called Luna Mini 2 £119 on http://www.foreo.com. The difference is that the brush face is now 50% bigger. The new brush face is more similar to Foreo’s larger version, Foreo Luna. Foreo Luna retails at £169 on their website. I purchased mine from http://www.lookfantastic.com on sale for £55.25 from £85, to me this is a bargain especially as I hadn’t tried it and didn’t know if I would like it. Is it worth £85? For me, yes. I was lucky enough to get this on sale, but I would have happily paid full price for the Foreo Luna Mini. It comes with 2 years warranty and seems pretty much indestructible. It is small and compact, pretty and really gives your skin a deep clean.

Results

I always tone after I cleanse my face and usually I have residue left over on the cotton pad. Since using the Foreo Luna Mini, my skin feels so clean and the evidence is my clean cotton pad after I tone. I also feel like the pulses helps increase blood flow to my skin, giving me that healthy glow. I would recommend Foreo Luna Mini, my skin has never felt so clean. I currently use this with my regular facial cleanser but I may try Foreo’s own facial cleanser. If you would like to see me try Foreo’s own facial cleanser or have any questions, please comment or message me!
