Origins KissZing Lip Crayons

Origins KissZing

These KissZing Lip Crayons from Origins are a relatively new release & only hit counters in mid February. So just in time for Spring. They come in 6 wearable colours.

Origins KissZing Selection

I have been using the shade Rosemance which is a soft nude rose shade. It gives your lips a pinch of colour & looks natural and pretty. The formula is quite creamy and glides on effortlessly, feels hydrating on the lips but not greasy at all. These is a glossy finish to this lip crayon and I think these make the perfect everyday lip product. They give your lips a pretty wash of colour, have a nice glossy finish & have lots of skincare benefits too – so they look after your lips as well as making them look pretty. Thats a win win situation.

Origins KissZing Rosemance

All the Origins KissZing Lip Crayons have these lovely ingredients to help keep your lips smooth, hydrated & looking their best.

Meadowfoam Seed – Which has anti-oxidant properties & helps keep skin soft and nourished.

Jojoba Oils – Which helps soothe dry irritated skin and is very gentle.

Mango Seed Butter Which  is rich in antioxidants, vitamin A and E.

Shea Butter – Which is very popular in skincare as it is a very effective moisturiser. So it prevents moisture loss and leaves skin soft.

Origins say these crayons have a scent of mint & vanilla, I do smell a hint of mint but it is so subtle.

I really like the shade I have & think Rosemance is not only a lovely name but a really pretty shade too. Its subtle & the kind of colour you could wear anywhere & anytime. I think these KissZing Lip Crayons will be perfect for Spring because they’re hydrating and give your lips a gorgeous effortless wash of colour.

Let me know which of the six shades you think would suit you best. I have my eye on Peach Peck.

I did include Rosemance in my Lip Crayon Collection post last month if you’d like to take a look.

MUA Sweet Sheen Lipbalms

MUA Sweet Sheen Lip balms

MUA Sweet Sheen Lipbalms* are part of their new Spring 2015 Collection & I love them. They are available in 6 pretty shades all perfect for Spring. I have 5 of them & they all give the the lips a light wash of colour, the darker shades are more pigmented as you would expect. They are all very wearable and its nice to finally be wearing some brighter colours after what feels like the longest Winter ever.

MUA Sweet Sheen Collection MUA Sweet Sheen Swatches

All the above swatches are one swipe, I think the colour payoff is quite good bearing in mind these are a tinted lipbalm. The colours can be built up – but don’t expect the colours to be bold. They feel very comfortable on the lips and they have a light sweet vanilla scent which I like.

My favourite shades are Cherry Bomb which is a pinky red and French Violet which is a gorgeous lilac. Both are currently in my handbag and I have been loving wearing them. These tinted lip balms make perfect effortless daytime lip colours, subtle but pretty. I like the packaging too and think it is very functional, its nice to have a tinted lipbalm in a twist up bullet like a lipstick.

Pink Lilly is the lightest shade & is a very light frosted pink colour, it didn’t really show up on my lips. Rouge Rumba is a berry red shade and is one of the most pigmented colour out of the 5 I have tried.         Coral Reef is a very pretty peach pink and this looks pretty and fresh on the lips.

At £2 each these are extremely great value and highly recommend getting a few for Spring.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Benefit Roller Lash Launch Party

The new Benefit Roller Lash Mascara* is the latest addition to Benefits makeup range & it will sit alongside their two already very popular Mascaras, They’re Real & Bad Gal. I was always more of a Bad Gal fan, They’re real was a little too crispy on my lashes & it didn’t separate them enough. Now on to Roller Lash which has been a long time in the development & I think its safe to say they have a fabulous mascara on their hands. As you would expect from Benefit the packaging is fun, girly & very cute, but the product itself lives up to expectations.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara Launch

I went along to the launch event in Manchester in the cutest pink lorry which Benefit had converted into a retro hair salon. It was so much fun & the Benebabes where so sweet. We learnt all about this new release whilst eating cupcakes & drinking Champagne (of course!).

The formula isn’t going to crisp up your lashes or clump – NO CLUMPING AT ALL – hallelujah I hate my lashes to look clumpy & messy. Roller Lash grips your lashes with their fancy new brush which has tiny hooks with which you hook & roll the brush up your lashes. Simple & effective, it coats each individual lash so you get thick separated fluttery lashes that look so long and fluttery. I have been using it everyday for a week and really like the effect, my lashes feel soft & bouncy.

One coat of Roller Lash

This mascara has been formulated so it holds a curl & I would say it does a good job at that, better than the other two Benefit Mascaras. It lifts the lashes & helps make your eyes look open & wide awake (just what I need). I wouldn’t say get rid of the eyelash curlers but why not use them to add even more curl.

So for me this new release is a bit of an all rounder & I even picked up a copy of Elle magazine to get my free deluxe sample so I have a back up. It was just too cute to pass up. If you haven’t already then make sure you get this months Elle before it sells out as Roller Lash isn’t available to purchase in stores until March & will retail at £19.50.

Blistex Happy Lips

I’m very much looking forward to Spring and everything that comes with this season. The lighter days & nights, warmer weather & all the new spring makeup, skincare & clothing.

So as I was day dreaming about Spring I was so excited to receive these Happy Lips* in the post last week. These are the new Spring Lip Balms from Blistex and now my lips think its Spring already, the weather just needs to catch up.

Blistex Happy Lips

Blistex New Spring Happy Lips

So as I type, I am eating a few cheeky bon bons (which were in my package) & thinking about how fruity & fun these Happy Lips are. Perfect for Spring & popping in your handbag or if you’re going on a cheeky Spring break maybe your beach / pool bag. These new lip balms come in two scents

Mouth Watering Mango £2.49 – This is my favourite of the two it smells like freshly ripe mango & makes me think of exotic holidays. Oh & this one just might happen to have my name on the packaging (easily pleased).

Simply Sensational Strawberry £2.49 – This scent smells a lot sweeter than the Mango, its still fruity but I just think Strawberry is a really hard scent to achieve without it smelling a little too sweet. I think this one will appeal more to teens.

Blistex Spring Releases Blistex Happy Lips Spring

Both Happy Lips are intensively moisturising & contain Vitamin E to keep your lips looking smooth & feeling soft and hydrated. The formula isn’t greasy & they feel nice on the lips. The packaging is bright, fun & travel friendly. These are the perfect affordable lip product to help beat the Winter Blues.

Just note that these lip balms do not contain SPF so be sun aware. But if you’re looking for a cute fruity hydrating lip balm this Spring make sure you check these out. The Mango one is already in my handbag & I will be using it a lot!

These new Spring Happy Lips are the latest addition to the Blistex range & the Mango & Strawberry are available as of January 26th in larger Boots Stores & online at 

Mango is also available from larger Tesco Stores.
