Lush - Bubblegum Lip Scrub


I'm not sure if this amazing or not as i don't have much experience when it comes to lip scrubs but this does taste yummy and make my lips super soft. So i'm sure its doing its job, although i do find this quite expensive for what it actually is and for £5.35 i'm sure there has to be a cheaper alternative.

The Rocket by Maybelline

As many of may know i love PINTEREST.. (Follow me on pinterest at lillyplant little plug there for ya)
I have lost many of my days on that site planning the wedding that's not happening and laughing at E cards. 
But  i never thought a review i saw on the website would make my mind up for me, but the review you can see below did just that. I'm not sure if it was the effort that was put in to the review or what.. But i thought, well i wont buy that.. and for a beauty blogger that's a big thing!
 I did restrain from buying it until it was 3 for 2 at boots and there was literally nothing left i didn't own, So when i brought it home i wasn't expecting much at all. I was actually planning on giving it away. But i thought ill give it a chance and to my surprise.. 
I adore it, very similar brush to benefits they're real, and gives just the right amount of lift for a natural daytime look.  

So as they say don't believe everything you read.

Uncanny - Apocalips & Intense Kisses

I've heard alot of bloggers saying that Intense Kisses by MUA was a dupe for Apocalips by Rimmel, but i don't think i was prepared for how close they actually are. I've owned both of this for quite a while and never actually realised, (the curse of being a blogger i suppose, so much make up!) But i found them in a drawer the other day and i couldn't believe it! 
Apocalips in Nova on the right
Intense Kisses in Lips are Sealed on the left.
As you can probably tell the Apocalips is a lot thicker but i think that actually works against it as its not very wearable and has been known to bleed. while the Intense Kisses is thinner and can be blended out to a stain i have found, and is a nicer finish on the lips. 
The Intense kisses is also a fraction of the price of the Apocalips. 
So not biased but go and get the Intense kisses you wont be disappointed. 

Baby Skin Review

Baby Skin has been so highly appreciated by everyone, and its not hard to see why, it could quite possibly be a dupe for porefessional by benefit .
Its defiantly a similar texture to porefessional.. and your face does feel alot smoother, and ready for foundation, and for the third of the price i would recommend to anyone who struggles with large pores like myself.
