Avon True Colour Supreme Nourishing Lipstick review & swatches

So the year is nearly over, and even though 2016 will likely go down in history as a generally dreadful year, it is bringing us this brand new lipstick collection from Avon to perk us up. And yes, I have swatches of every shade! Shall we have a look, then?

The new Avon True Colour Supreme Nourishing Lipstick collection is a range of shades that promise to provide up to 8 hours of colour that stays true, as well the ability to quench dry lips with it's jojoba oil infused formula for intense moisture. Avon also say that this lipstick will glide onto the lips easily and it also contains SPF15 for that important protection from the sun.

It comes in a range of 12 shades that include reds, nudes, purples and pinks and each one has a beautiful swirling pattern down the length of the lipstick itself.

Each of them come packaged in a typical Avon lipstick tube that is sleek, black and oblong in shape with rounded corners. Instead of silver, the Avon logo is written on a rose gold band around the middle and the inside of the tube that holds the product is also rose gold in hue as well.

Yves Rocher Lipstick Palette review

So there is this certain holiday coming, you might have heard of it, it's called "Christmas". Part of the Christmas tradition is the giving of gifts, but sometimes we can reach a point where we run out of ideas. Well today I'm going to be sharing a great little gift idea for someone you love.

The Yves Rocher Lipstick Palette is a palette that contains five of the brands top Grand Rouge lipsticks within one sleek palette based offering. The Grand Rouge formula is described as being long-wearing, hydrating and so silky smooth that you forget that you are wearing it.

The shade choice contains reds, pinks and purples with differing undertones so that there is something for everyone within the palette. There is also a handy lip brush for application and a mirror inside so you can apply on the go.

They come packaged in a beautifully chic, slimline, rose gold palette. Whilst it looks gorgeous, it is rather hard to get a decent photo of as it's effectively like a mirror.  You all want to see the palette, not my mush staring back at you with my concentrating photography face. With that said, I did do my best for you all.

Illamasqua Precision Ink Eyeliner review

A good liquid eyeliner should have a place in every makeup fan's arsenal. With that said, it's actually been a while since I reviewed a liquid eyeliner, instead focusing more attention on pencil liners as of late. So let's fix that today, shall we?

The Illamasqua Precision Ink Eyeliner is a highly pigmented, liquid eyeliner that comes with an ultra-fine precision brush for the perfect application. It promises to be long-lasting and the formula is also waterproof, so expect sharp, bold lines that stay put.

It comes in a range of four different shades, but today I shall be looking at the shade Abyss, which is a deep black.

Illamasqua also say that you can also use this as in your nail art too. I haven't tried it as such so I won't be discussing results of that within this review, but I thought it was worth mentioning as I do love multitaskers and I know there are others out there who do too.

It comes packaged in a slim, sleek black pot with a long handled brush. This in turn then comes packaged in a glossy black box with gold illustrations on it. It all looks very fancy and high quality, which is always a nice feeling when buying beauty products.

Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick review

The perfect nude lipstick. You may have found yours, you might not. Either way, finding the perfect nude can sometimes feel like a lifelong journey. Well today, I'm going to try to help you on your hunt by discussing a shade that I've been roadtesting.

The Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick range is a collection of seven nude shades that come in a gellified formula that promises to provide a sleek shine finish. It contains monoi butter for moisture and Vitamin E and myrhh for anti-ageing effects.

They come packaged in a rather snazzy and chunky gold tube with Marc Jacobs written down the side of the lid in silver writing. The cap also has a silver circle where it clicks into place when you put it back on (I actually really love that part of the packaging, it'a hard to explain why unless you've played around with Marc Jacobs lipsticks before).

The lipstick then comes packaged in a shiny black box with the chosen shade indicated around the edges. The lipstick itself also has a subtle vanilla scent to it.

The shade that I have to show you all today is Anais, which is described as a "spiced ginger" colour.
