Review: ELF Hypershine Gloss

15 Jun

Hello everyone! I’m going to be going on an ELF review run so that I can get these reviews out of the way. And sorry for the amount of reviews I’ll be posting it’s just that I’m really behind on reviews.

(L-R: Flirt, Berry Cherry, Blossom)

Review: The shades I got are flirt (a neutral corally pink shade), Berry Cherry (dark plum red shade), and Blossom (light bright pink shade) So theses glosses are super shiny as it suggests but the lasting power isn’t long for me it lasts for about 1 hour max thus leading to lots of application over the period of a day. Now if it was more expensive I probably won’t repurchase but since it’s a dollar than it is understandable. The pigmentation is very low overall so it can look like a clear gloss on your lips (in the picture I really put it on).  Works greart overtop of lipsticks or bare lips. To me there is a maple syrup scent which I love (love love love maple syrup) and the applicator is pretty good I guess. At the beginning of course you must twist it about 20 times before product comes out. Overall it’s a mediocre product for a good price but I would repurchase because of the scent and I find that I do reach for them much more than my other lipglosses.

Cost: $1.00USD @ eyeslipsface.com

Would I recommend this product? Yes I totally would for those looking for a regular lipgloss and I will be repurchasing more in the future as well.

Review: N.Y.C. Lip Sliders Tinted Lip Balm

21 Jul

A review for N.Y.C. Tinted Lip Balms for days where you want colour and a lip balm.

Review: N.Y.C. is a very affordable drugstore brand (hooray for low costs and great products). They have been getting a lot of hype on Youtube as of late due to the new Blushable Creme Sticks (review coming later on). As for this tinted lip balm I have seen many tinted lip balms that cost aroudn $8+CDN so I never did want to try them as I could have gotten a lipstick at that price. But N.Y.C. being sneaky was pretty low cost so I picked one up the shade that I got was Sugar Coated and they have 5 other shades as well. This product smells like cotton candy and lots of vanilla which I usually don’t like but when its on your lips you can’t smell it so I could bare with it. Works great as a lip balm and even throughout the day as the colour fades your lips are still moisturized (big plus!). Since this color is a light pink it give the lips a nice cremesheen shine like you put a glossy icing over your lips very similar to MAC’s Boybait cremesheen (compared it to my friends).

Cost: $2.99CDN at any drugstore that sells N.Y.C.

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product it works great and gives your lips a nice colour. I want to go get the rest of the shades!
