Product Testing UK….Review of I ❤ Makeup Lip Lava…..

Hello again lovelies!

So, I’ve just become a member of Product Testing UK’s Beauty Blogger list and today I received my first product for review. Firstly, here’s what the company says:

So on with my product review.

I was sent an I Heart Makeup Lip Lava. As everyone  knows, I Heart Makeup is the sister brand to Makeup Revolution, and regular readers of Elegant Ageless Beauty knows I’m a huge fan of the brand. However I’ve never tried the I Heart Makeup range, until now.

Firstly I just want to say that I had no choice in the shade of Lip Lava, and this colour is awful on me! The rules of Product Testing UK is that I am supposed to be in a photo with the product. You lovelies know me well enough by now, I don’t appear in photos except the ones when I’m reviewing my beloved beauty masks! I don’t have the confidence YET! So, sorry Product Testing you won’t see me in the photo but it’s my blog and this is the way I run it.

Anyway the Lip Lava I was sent is in shade “Shockwave” a bright purple/pink which is a gorgeous colour but on me is awful. It’s a super gorgeous liquid lipstick product, with very high pigmentation. It glides on perfectly with its super creamy consistency using the angled sponge tipped applicator straight from the tube. It’s gorgeous and glossy, contains vitamin E so it’s good for the lips too, bonus! It feels light on the lips, and definitely isn’t sticky. I would like to try another Lip Lava, but a shade that is more suited to me because it really is a beautiful lip product. The I Heart Makeup Lip Lava is just £2.99, and if you would like to see more just click HERE

Well that was my first review for Product Testing UK. I’m not altogether happy with the ruling regarding showing oneself for their reviews. If I get asked to review for them again fine, if not then I’m not too worried. You lovely people are who matter to me and if you like what I’m doing then that makes me happy.

See you again soon, I’ve got some skin care to share with you next!

A MONTH IN NAIL POLISH DAY 24…

Welcome back lovelies!

Today’s gorgeous nail polish is from ELF and I am so in love with this shade and the nail polish from the brand, I’ve never used it before although I’ve had it in my collection for quite a while. This is Punk Purple from a  set called Vacation Trio.

The formula of this nail polish is super, it’s opaque with just one coat! It applies like a dream and is thick enough that it  doesn’t flood the cuticle. It takes no time at all to dry and it has a beautiful shine to the finish it truly is a super nail polish. I love it, and I definitely want more ELF nail polishes to add to my ever-growing collection. The set of 3 nail polishes in the trio are mini’s and are only £4.50 from HERE.

I’ll be back next time with another nail polish from this trio, thank you for stopping by today.

A MONTH IN NAIL POLISH DAY 23…

Hello lovelies, welcome back to my blog.

Today’s nail polish is another one from MUA Makeup Academy, and it’s one that I featured in my French manicure a couple of days ago.

IMG_6512

This gorgeous white nail polish is called “Whitewash” and it gives more than a wash of white on the nails believe me! It’s a stunning white, it’s a very bright white. It applies like a dream and  is opaque in 2 coats. I thought that this would look terrible on my nails because I’m old, but I love how it looks. It’s going to  look very pretty over Christmas with a silver or gold glitter top coat, it would also be great as a base coat for your neon bright nail polish too, and of course  use it for your tips when you do a French manicure too. You can find this beauty on the MUA website HERE and only £1.00.

See you tomorrow for another one, thank you for reading.
