Read my plump lips… with Know Cosmetics

beauty

Read my lips… Know Cosmetics UK bring you the new #nothinlips gloss and no dark shadows enhancer…

No Thin LipsTM Secret Lip Plumper, £15 is a smooth, colourless secret lip plumper that instantly plumps and volumises lips. With every application, this gloss will keep
your lips looking full, lush and alluring. Formulated with Aloe extract and Vitamin E, No Thin LipsTM Secret Lip Plumper will keep your lips moisturized, hydrated and
voluminous. The Rapid Plump Complex, a blend of sensory ingredients and menthol, stimulates blood flow to the lips while advanced peptides increase hyaluronic acid production resulting in a full looking lip.

No Thin LipsTM Secret Lip Plumper is perfect on bare lips for a plump natural look, or apply it over or under your favourite lipstick or gloss. Apply as often as you desire.

We found this to work very quickly – with a light plump, just don’t go too crazy as it doesn’t taste too fantastic if you get it on your tongue or inner or your lips!

No Dark ShadowsTM, £15 is a silky, light, blendable complexion enhancer and concealer that works hard to conceal imperfections. The light diffusing pigments in the formula softens the look of dark circles and highlights your best features for a contoured makeup look. The long-lasting, buildable moisturizing formula can be applied alone or blended with foundation to perfect the complexion. Offering medium coverage (too much for us personally) , it’s waterproof (lasting 6+ hours) and is free of mineral oils and parabens. Dermatologically approved it’s available in twoshades : WOW (rose undertones) and PIZAZZ (yellow undertones)

You need the smallest amount ever! It glides over your skin without the need of a primer and a few dabs can cover your face entirely… of course if you want heavier coverage too this one is great for building up in the areas you need it, too!

It contains some fabulous skin protection too with detoxyl an anti-pollution ingredient keeping the city smog at bay, bamboo for repair and softening shea butter. In addition it contains panthenol which enables the ingredients to penetrate the skin, assisting with hydration and it’s a pro vitamin of B5 – stimulating cell regeneration!

All in all it’s pretty fabulous… it stays on our skin all day with no patching or dryness! Taking on all of the other cosmetics with ease making application of your morning makeup quick and easy!

It’s eye time… that you take notice of rougebunnyrouge’s endless eye collections… they have numerous products for every single look! Above we have Pristine Light Corrective eye primer, €35 (around £30.50) SHOP IT HERE Applied with the sponge applicator on the tube tip, you need a small squeeze to give a base ideal for RBR’s glitter pigments, to hold them in place and to mask any blemishes too!

For precision cut eyeliner, trust in Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Nocturnal Ink Satin Eyeliner, €28 (around £24.50) SHOP IT HERE It has an ultra–fine brush tip, allowing ultra skinny cat eye flicks, and a fuller lash line.

Just what you want smudge-proof products, that remove with ease at the end of the night!

The Amplitute big lash mascara, €29 (around (£25) SHOP IT HERE is surprisingly volume inducing and gives the sense of extreme length also! Initially from the non clumpy / thick texture on the brush I thought this wouldn’t do much, but it goes a long way; and although it isn’t waterproof – it takes a lot of moisture and more than rain on your face to budge it! Meaning no streaming lines down your face! The wax that makes up the formula, is super nourishing on your lashes too – so you get to look great and treat your eyes too!

P.S. Be a Workout beauty…

If you’re a gym bunny that likes to not bare all at the gym, and goes down the makeup to the gym route, why not try the new range from Primark Beauty?

Stand up to sweat with the new PS…Workout cosmetics range from Primark beauty – lightweight, long wearing, natural finish make up for lips, eyes and skin. The 11-piece collection features sweat and splash proof formulas in pretty, neutral colours & brights to enhance your natural beauty whilst withstanding your workout. Hero products include a protecting lip balm with SPF 50 for outdoor workouts, sweat resistant powder for a confident, matte complexion and waterproof eyeliner for subtle definition.

We have tested out some of the range to see if it really stands up to longwear, and whether we actually like it! First up we try the Liquid lipstick in Cheerleader and the matching lip liner – a total barg for £3! – Cheerleader is a bright in your face pink – I don;t quite think I could wear this in a gym ever to be totally honest – You’s spot me a mile off! But I have to say, the liner goes on smoothly with ease, and the lip fix liquid lipstick, you only need a little bit and you have full pout coverage. I found it a tad drying so make sure you use a moisturing primer before hand to help! Next up the foundation stick – it needs a tad warming up before it goes on, but this gives good quick coverage, and blends fairly well! For the fairer girls I hope there’s some lighter shades too, but i’m sure there will be! Again, bargain price, so the quality is great for such a price, and finally the eyeliners, are non budging and waterproof, smooth application, lovely and dark too, not muted by the dampness of the waterline.

Overall a fab collection – I’d just choose the more muted shades if I chose to be the make-up wearing gym bunny! Thumbs up Primark!

Liquid lipsticks, £2; Waterproof eyeliners, £1; Lipliner, £1; Mattifying powder, £2; Waterproof mascara, £2; Foundation stick, £2.50; Lip balm, £1, available nationwide at Primark Stores

Tried and tested: The secret to getting that perfect Hollywood pout… 

Dreaming of pillow-soft, kissable smooth lips? Discover DREAMKISS-STARSKIN®’s newest bio-cellulose mask specially created for the delicate skin on and around your lips. Made from the highest quality Bio-Cellulose that STARSKIN®’s face and eye masks are known for, DREAMKISS Plumping & Hydrating Lip Mask closely follows the contours of your lips for a skin-tight fit, delivering 5ml of super-nourishing and ultra-hydrating serum in just 15 minutes.

As with all STARSKIN®’s at-home beauty treatments, the serum for the DREAMKISS Lip Mask is filled with generous amounts of handpicked, natural ingredients and skin- nourishing botanicals; all to give your lips an instant plumping and intense hydration treatment. Sea Fern, Collagen and Hyaluronic acid instantly plump lips and diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, while deeply moisturizing Coconut Oil, Honey and Chia Seeds leave lips soft and smooth.

REVIEW: Of course we had to try this ‘award winning’ brand out for ourselves, After easily applying the mask (simple & fuss-free) sitting back in bed with mask applied of course my partner wanted to know what I had stuck to my face, with no after comment 😛 … I fully expected some tingling – nothing, the mask is plenty big enough to reach around the full lip and surrounding skin, the results being a bit different to what I expected for me though, plumping not so much, however leaving the area extremely moisturised was a definite winner, and helping to clean up chicken pox scars almost completely – that surround my lips which have had many a different application of products to reduce the scarring! over the last year! So all in all a good formula for me! 

STARSKIN®’s DREAMKISS, £8.50 for two will be available at the end of August 2016 Online and instore at Selfridges, Harvey Nichols & Beautybay

Celebrate with Ciate


#Nationallipstickday
is one of the days us girls shouldn’t miss, whether it’s by wearing our favourite lippie or simply trying out a new bold and daring colour, we should all be getting stuck in!
This year we will be bringing you a range of products that we love, not just today, but since Wednesday we’ve been bringing you some of the newest, most gorgeous lip products!

Now excuse the ever so hilarious pout here, lips are actually closed with no attempt at a pout, it’s the new shaping I was trying out and here we go pouts galore! A shape, that we see celebs with the likes of Charlotte Crosby and the Kardashian / Jenner clan, in particular Kylie take on. Here I’ve applied Liquid Velvet lip colour in ‘

Chatterbox’ by Ciate, £17 with a line that instead of lining in an upturned arch where half the time I look like I’m part of the cast from Ab Fab (on the outer edges of the top lip) I work from the bottom edges of the top lip creating a very slight inward facing arch or downward arch giving as we see this pout! :/ I may not be the best photographer to capture how it looked non pouty, but my lips certainly look much fuller! Try it yourself and try out these new wonderful products, they shouldn’t be missed!

So refresh your lipstick wardrobe today and ramp up the colour with Ciate’s Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slick. Available in 8 new colours, this is a high coverage, long wearing and high performance pigment lip colour. With hyaluronic acid for its ultra intense lip-conditioning benefits to help lips look fuller and feel much smoother and supple! Make the most out of the innovative precision tip, which makes light work of lining and filling in lips for the precision application!

Available now, Ciate Liquid Velvet Matte Lip Slick, £17, from www.ciatelondon.com
