I’ve added the three newest shades to this post (marked * *)!
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers apply like a gloss, with a doe-foot applicator and great formula, but dry to a matte finish – with no smudging! Which is why I love them. I know I’ve swatched a load of the Velvet Lip Lacquers before but in the last 2 months they’ve released 6 more of them and I wanted to put all my swatches in one place. So, today I spent many hours, resulting in very sore lips, swatching the new shades (and re-swatching the old ones) to finally compile them all in one post! I haven’t included the older shades which are no longer sold on the MUA site (a couple are still available on Superdrug). Let me tell you, it’s taken a while to get this up! I’ll keep the descriptions short and brief as there are 30 colours to get through… Enjoy!Read More »
Barry M have very recently released 3 new palettes and, as I said in my last post I’ve picked up 2 of them because I just couldn’t resist the colours! I’ve also got my eye on the third one, Meteor Storm which has 8 shades and costs £9.99… I’m sharing Crown Jewels with you today, which is made up of 10 gorgeous shimmer/glitter shades – again they have no names but are perfect for autumn.

Barry M have very recently released 3 new palettes and I’ve (so far) picked up 2 of them because I just couldn’t resist the colours! The first one I’m sharing with you is Fall In Love and as you can probably guess it’s made up of a range of beautiful autumn shades. There are 10 matte colours in total – sadly they have no names… Read More »
I’ve been picking up these Collection Velvet Kiss lip creams every time I’ve been popping into Boots. The good news is they are only £2.99 each (currently in the 3 for 2 offer!) and I now own all 6 shades. They have a doe-foot applicator and a creamy moisturising formula that isn’t drying at all on the lips. I think they’re meant to be a dupe for the NYX Professional Makeup Soft Matte lip creams – which I’ve never worn but from swatching them in store they seem to be very similar but I can’t make an accurate comparison, unfortunately!

Having reviewed Makeup Revolution Lipkits before (not a fan!) and lip kits becoming a ‘thing’, I’ve decided to have a look at a couple of other brands to see if I like any of the others. Recently, both Primark and Barry M have released their own lip kits so I grabbed a few. I actually wanted a couple of colours from Primark but I could only find one, sadly! But I have two from Barry M too.Read More »
