Sparkly Kisses – A Glitter Lips Review!

Recently I have had some enquires about which beauty products I like to use. I will be sure to share some of my tips and tricks with you all in the very near future but for now I must talk about a product I discovered whilst at a fashion event. Admittedly I’m more of a gloss and balm girl when it comes to my lips but every so often I am looking to wear some fun and fresh lipsticks. A new style of lip-wear has reached us and with it comes that added shimmer and sparkle we have been missing! What am I talking about?

Glitter Lips of course!

I first discovered this product when I attended the recent Cut For Evans launch held at the Marble Arch store here in London. Initially I tried out a lilac/pink shade as it matched my dress, I think this may have been the Molly Dolly colour. I fell in love with it! First of all I was seriously impressed by how life proof this stuff is! You can eat, drink, talk, smoke, whatever and this stuff stays on! It’s really simple to apply and comes with a gummy style glue which you apply just the same as you would a basic lip gloss. It appears white on your lips and when it starts to go transparent you then apply the glitter powder to your lips. I really like the end result that you get with this product.

It’s really easy to remove too all you need is some oil based make-up remover, but baby oil or Vaseline would work also. Simply add some to a cotton bud, wipe and hey presto you’re glitter free!

Selfie Taken The First Time I Tried Glitter Lips

I tend to go for blood red tones when selecting lipsticks. My love of vintage pinup fashion and beauty styles tends to be the main reason, also I  like how red works against my skin tone. This of course made me gravitate towards the Ruby Slippers shade when I bought my first Glitter Lips kit. This isn’t the sort of lip make up I would wear on a daily basis, but this would be a lot of fun to wear out to a club or something or to add a little edge to a simple look. I may even try this out in a photoshoot or something.

If you feel like trying out something a little different why not pick up a shade yourself? They’re only £12.50 and in even better news there is an option to get free postage on the website! To find out more about Beauty Boulevard and their amazing Glitter Lips range, click here.

Black Sparkle! A Review Of The Black Sequin Shift Dress By Yours Clothing

Towards the end of last year there were a series of fabulous parties, events and friendly gatherings that took place. One thing that we all like to do when meeting our friends for dinner, heading to a party or when we hit the clubs is to look glamours. I am a firm believer that you can’t go wrong when you have a bit of sparkle in your wardrobe, and it was this need for something that glimmers which had me picking up the Black Sequin Shift Dress from Yours Clothing.

What drew me to this one is the simplicity in it’s style. Sometimes I like to look glammed up but not to the point of being over dressed. I loved the length of this one as it just skims the knees and clings in all the right places, showcasing my curves and concealing the areas I’d rather cover up. The material is soft and extremely comfortable to wear and I think it’s one that can be worn at any special occasion or fun night out.
The dress has a cut out in the back which nicely covers the back band of your bra offering another dimension to the design and giving it that little something extra. I decided to also pick up the Cap Sleeve Jersey Shrug With Seam Detailing  from Yours Clothing to pair with this one. As some of you may know I feel more comfortable with the tops of my arms covered and I also thought it might make the dress a little warmer during the cold holiday season. The shrug is a silky soft material that slips on really nicely and feels great on.

I decided to wear this one with a pair of the Black Ruched Hem Leggings they sell also. These feel fantastic on, are fantastic quality and make for a great staple piece in any wardrobe. And even better news, you can buy two pairs for just £16 or one for £10

You could pair this one with tights or of course wear on it’s own. For me I was aiming for a classic all in black look with a silver accessories. Heeled lace pumps finished off the look and I have to say I have worn this dress a couple of times now and it always looks fantastic on. As a side note this one washes really well also.
