Miners Cosmetics Limited Edition Tin o' Tint

Miners Cosmetics have launched their staple product Tin o' Tint with limited edition packaging as they have teamed up with the pop group NVS who are supporting Little Mix on their tour throughout May and June! They have released 5 lip balms in 5 different flavors, each one supporting a different band member.

The balm flavors represent each band member:

Harri Tin o' Tint Pink Grapefruit
Tess Tin o' Tint Mango
Axel Tin o' Tint Cocoa Bean
Danny Tin o' Tint Watermelon
Dec Tin o' Tint Cherry

The lovely people at Miners kindly sent me a Dec Tin o' Tiny Cherry* to try and here are my thoughts :)!

The balm comes in a cute little pot with a great eye catching design, this comes in the limited edition box which has a picture and signature of the band member is represents - in my case it is Dec! The colour of cherry is a gorgeous deep berry shade and it smells incredible! I was a tad worried at first because I thought it might smell sickly like some other cherry lip products but this balm reminded me of a cherry candle - such a beautiful sent!

The balm has a lovely texture and was not sticky at all, it was super moisturising and left a nice tint on the lips. The colour isn't super pigmented just a glossy tint which will be great for summer and at £2.99 they are super affordable!

Overall I love this product and really want to try the other flavors

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Autumn Spice

As soon as I saw a picture of the Revlon Parfumerie scented polishes I fell in love. These polishes are supposed to be scented once dry and they really don't disappoint! I am a huge sucker for packaging and you really cannot get better than these polishes - the bottles are just gorgeous and look beautiful on a dressing table. I was a little unsure of the rounded tops at first thinking that they would make it difficult to apply the polish but they are very easy to use and cause no problems at all. The shades and scents are split into three categories - Sweets & Spices, Freshes and Fruits & Florals and with 24 shades you are sure to find something for you!

Now as there are so many shades to choose from it was a difficult choice in which ones to buy so I choose one from each category!  The first one I am going to talk about is Autumn Spice which is a dark chocolaty brown with gold and red shimmer. This is such a gorgeous shade which looks incredible on, it is one of those shades which I can't stop looking at when its on my nails.The scent is exactly how I imagined it to be like nutmeg and cinnamon - it reminds me of burning spice scented candles.

Autumn Spice went onto the nails beautifully and dried super quick which I was grateful for as I hate waiting for nail polish to dry! The colour lasted 3 days before it started to chip which is incredible for my nails which usually make polish chip just hours after applying! The scent was nice and strong on the first day of application but started to fade on the 2nd and by the 3rd had completely gone, however I wasn't to disappointed about the scent because you are still left with a gorgeous colour! It is really hard to capture the true beauty of this colour in pictures but I promise its gorgeous!!

Keep your eyes out for my next post :)!

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil LSD

Ok I know what you are thinking MORE URBAN DECAY?!?!? I know but I can't help it, I just love Urban Decay makeup so I wont apologise :) A couple of posts ago I spoke about the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion which I loooooveeeeee! But LSD was actually the first pencil I brought - actually I think LSD was my first ever Urban Decay product! So I guess it is what started this love affair.

LSD is the most beautiful colour ever, a gorgeous dark blue with turquoise shimmer! I absolutely love wearing blue on my eyes, I hate it when I hear people saying people with blue eyes can't wear blue.. I love the colour blue so will continue to wear it on my eyes!

The formula of LSD is great, so creamy and glides onto the eye lids perfectly. I find that the liner lasts incredibly well even on my oily lids but I do find that it can sometimes transfer to the top of my lid but only sometimes.

The packaging for the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils are beautiful, I love how the packaging matches the colour of the product - I want all the colours just because they would look gorgeous on my dressing table!!

I normally wear LSD as a thick winged eyeliner and line the bottom lashes too! This eyeliner is just gorgeous and I love wearing it.
