Miss Pork Pie’s Make Up – Collection Mulberry Burst Lipstick Review

I never used to be that interested in lipstick, but over the last few months, since I decided to buy MUA totally nude lipstick I haven’t stopped wearing it! I feel totally wrong going out without something on my lips, kind of like many of us feel if we leave the house without mascara!?

This time I decided to go for a bold colour, something that would stand out a bit more. I went for Mulberry Blast by Collection. As you can see, it’s going to make much more of a statement than my nude lippy!

Price wise I think it’s very reasonable, it cost me only £2.98 from Boots and it’s also currently in the 3 for 2 offer, the cheapest item being free. I didn’t go for that deal this time, but I certainly plan on going back to take advantage of it!

The lipstick claims to be long lasting, and I was quite dubious as I always somehow manage to wear through my lipstick all of the time. I was pleasantly surprised. It lasted about 2 hours before having to touch it up, and in that time I had eaten and drank too so I agree with the long lasting claims!

It’s a nicely textured lipstick, how you’d imagine it to be really, it glides on easily and feels nice when you rub your lips together. I did find that I had to apply it quite liberally though, as the colour didn’t hide my natural lip colour straight away.

Over all I am really happy that I bought this lipstick, and I have already gained so much use from it! For that kind of price you really can’t complain!

Has anyone else tried the Collection long lasting stay range? What did you think?

Monmag Beauty Product Review – Inca Inchi Oil

I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to review one of the many amazing products from Monmag Beauty.

After a few emails with the lovely ladies at Monmag, I was selected the Inca Inchi Oil, which is a regeneration oil. You can apply by:

  • Applying it directly to the skin.
  • As moisturiser combined with face cream.
  • In addition for body lotion
The oil was delivered very quickly, and I immediately was surprised by what came. A full 15ml bottle of the oil, a little soft toy and a note with it that said “here’s a little gift for your precious one, I hope he likes it”. I thought this was really sweet of them to send a little gift for him too. He’s named it fluffy, because he picked it up with sticky hands and it made his hands fluffy – pure genius three year old logic if you ask me!
Later that night I showered and then decided to see how the oil would work on my psoriasis. I also decided to use it directly onto my skin, as I thought this would have the best effect. How right I was! 
Here is a picture of my knee before applying the oil…
Bad right? Here is a picture of my knee immediately after using the oil…
I am so thrilled with the improvement made to my skin, and how quickly it improved it too! I have been applying it directly after showers since and the skin on my knees feels a thousand times better.
I have also been mixing it with my moisturiser, and been applying it all over, and my skin really does feel incredible, I’ve also noticed the look of my skin has changed too, it looks like I’ve been away on holiday, refreshed, but without the tan (haha if only!).
I have always been self concious of my skin, because people always ask what it is, and I always feel like people are staring. Not any more, this oil really has given me so much more self confidence. I have also found that in this beautiful hotter weather we have been having, that when the skin on my face dries and cracks, a small application of the oil directly sorts it right out for the rest of the day!
I would definitely recommend purchasing this oil. I wasn’t really expecting much from it to be honest, as I’ve tried so many lotions and potions for my skin, and nothing has ever worked! 
I’d like to thank Monmag for letting me review this lovely product, and I hope to work with them again very soon!
Much love xx
