You'll find me over on Sarah Scribble's blog today! A guest post on my favourite hyped up products influenced purely from the beauty blogger 'world'!
I've said it before and I'll say it again; there are products that circulate the blogosphere like wild fire, some worthy of the hype & others - not so much, but I don't think you can judge until you try. So here are my thoughts on the current cliche purchases of this month!
Three products that I just had to try out for myself were; the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain (£5.99), Nuxe Reve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm (£9.50) and Collection 2000 16 hour Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19 - cheaper in Superdrug *hint*).
I'm just going to go ahead and say I am genuinely impressed with all three. Hate to sound like a makeup snob; but as a rule I think you get what you pay for and normally I wouldn't really look at Collection 2000 as a brand I would buy, however that thought has been fully blasted from my mind by the quality of these products.
So starting with possibly the most talked about/wanted of the three; the Nuxe Reve de Miel.
I'm a big Blistex fan, generally assuming - a lip balm, is a lip balm, is a lip balm, no? Well... This is something else. This wonderfully creamy, lemon-y / honey scent balm is so long lasting, so moisturising and just all-round awesome, I couldnt love it anymore if I tried. Claiming to be a product that "restores suppleness and comfort to dry, chapped lips" - I would say it does exactly that and then some. I put the balm on for bed and wake up with it still there! I don't have to constantly reapply and after just one small swipe of balm it stays put & does its job perfectly. My lips wil no longer be sore & dry! Hurray! I couldn't recommend it more. This will 100% become a staple in my makeup bag!
