Lime Crime Lip Spinner Gift Set Review & Swatches

Product Reviews, Uncategorized

Hello beauties, I hope you have had a wonderful weekend! You may have seen this featured in my Christmas guide post already but I wanted to do a full review on this Lime Crime Lip Spinner holiday set because I think it deserves a separate post!

Beloved for their kaleidoscopic spectrum of long-wearing lip pigments and exquisite eye and cheek enhancers, we dare you to resist Lime Crime’s range of criminally covetable products. Dial up the festive fun this Christmas with the Lip Spinner Set – boasting three mini Matte Velvetines and three brand new Glitter Wet Cherry Glosses, simply spin the dial to select your shade (because it’s far too hard to pick our favourite shade from this tempting lot!)

Packaging

How cute is this packaging though? I’m in love with the bold design and the fun Spinner theme, it has a plastic heart in the middle that moves round. I love the bold colours, just what you would expect from Lime Crime! I did struggle getting the lipsticks and glosses out of the plastic packaging though.

Shades

Inside this set there is six mini sized lip products which consist of three of their matte Velvetines and three brand new Wet Cherry glosses. The shades are-

  • ‘Red Rose’ – a blue red
  • ‘Cindy’ – a hazelnut brown
  • ‘Lulu’ – a rose nude
  • ‘Happy cherry’ – a gold flecked apricot
  • ‘Cherry bomb’ – a gold flecked red
  • ‘Fuzzy cherry’ – a gold flecked champagne

Wet Cherry Gloss formula

I’ve already tried a few of the original Wet Cherry glosses and love the formula so was exited to try these brand new holiday shades. They have flecks of glitter mixed in with the gloss and look so pretty on the lips. They provide a intense high shine finish and catch the light so beautifully. These can be worn on their own or on top of a colour for added umph and I find them so comfy on the lips.

Velvetines Liquid Lipstick Formula

Another formula that I am familiar with is the the matte Velvetines liquid lipstick. It’s such a smooth and pigmented cream that is so easy to apply and as the name suggests, looks like velvet on the lips. Although they dry down to a matte finish they’re in no way drying and I love that the lipsticks are really hard wearing too!

Price

This set costs £41 and can be bought from Cult Beauty in the UK here. Although it’s fairly pricey I think this is a wonderful set for those who love Lime Crime, all the shades are so pretty and perfect to travel with thanks to the mini tube size.

What do you think of the shades in this gift set? What’s your favourite Lime Crime product? Let me know in the comment below!

Christmas Style In Collaboration with Femme Luxe Finery

Collaborations, Outfits, Uncategorized

Hello beauties, I’m back with another clothing collaboration. In today’s post I will be styling up four items that Femme Luxe Finery kindly gifted me to review from their Dresses collection.

Disclaimer- the items in this post were sent to me as a gift to review, as always opinions are honest and my own.

The first item is the Star Mustard knit long sleeve tie front wrap dress which is so soft and comfortable, it’s a given you want to look good for your Christmas parties and outings buts it’s also important to stay warm, which is why I like this knitted jumper dress. I love the V-neck and how you can wear it slightly off the shoulder too! I styled it with some glam fringed earrings from Primark, some matching red open toed shoes from Pull & Bear and a cute envelope leopard print bag from Accessorize.

Next is the Eliana cream knit high neck oversized jumper dress which is another pick I chose for warmth, this can be worn casual with tights and boots and a leather jacket or smart with a a pair of thigh high boots and baker hat. I’d wear this to a meal or to a Christmas market with a warm coat. I love the roll neck detailing and the 70s style wide sleeve. Hat is from H&M and boots from ASOS.

For the party dresses we have the Roslyn black cold shoulder wrap front midi dress which is such a gorgeous sleek LBD. This would be perfect for a Christmas meal or works do. I will be wearing this on a night out with friends. It has a stunning sweetheart shoulder, split at the front and fits so well. I styled this with my Everything5pounds tie up heels and New Look earrings.

Lastly Taliha mustard dalmatian bow front cut out mini dress which is giving me serious flintstone vibes and I’m here for it. Dalmatian print has been huge this year along with leopard print and this dress has so many fun details. I love the cut out panel, tie up front and buttons down the front as well as the cutest little frills on the sleeve. I paired this with my fringed red earrings and red clutch both from Primark and red open shoes from Pull & Bear.

What do you think of the items I chose? Have you ever shopped at Femme Luxe Finery? Let me know in the comments below’

The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane Review

Lifestyle, Product Reviews, Uncategorized

Hello beauties, we all know that Christmas is the best time for new launches when it comes to bath and body brands and one of my favours brands to shop during the festive period is The Body Shop. In today’s post I’m going to be talking about two of the new peppermint range that I picked up last weekend.

Disclaimer- This post contains affiliate links. As always opinions are honest and my own.

The whole collection in this scent consists of a shower gel, bath foam, soap, body lotion, body butter, body scrub, hand cream and shimmer mist. It also comes in some really fab gift sets that are great value for money if you’re looking for something for a loved one.

Packaging

How cute is the design of this years lid packaging, it literally screams Christmas and fits the scent of the product so well. It definitely makes me hungry!

Peppermint Candy Cane Body Scrub

The first item I picked up was this body scrub, I was in need of one after running out of my usual and fell in love with the scent of this one. It has the obvious smell of peppermint but mixed with a delicious hit of vanilla and it smells so sweet and food like. This has small bits in that are sizeable enough to buff away dry/dead skin without being too rough and leaves the skin feeling wonderfully smooth and like new. This costs £15 for 250ml but there is always offers on to save you some money!

Peppermint Candy Cane Body Butter

I always buy the matching body lotion if it’s available in the same scent as I feel it makes the smell linger longer. This has exactly the same formula as any other of the body butters from The Body Shop and I find them one of the best. They are fairly thick and make short work of any dry areas you may have. It does take awhile for this cream to set in and has a tingly effect to the skin thanks to the peppermint. The scent is exactly the same as the scrub. This costs £6 for 50ml or £15 for 200ml

Also don’t forget to check out the other Christmas scents that are also available, the Berry Bon Bon and the Vanilla Marshmallow and I’ll leave a link here if you want to shop the Peppermint Candy Cane collection.

Have you tried any of the other products from this years Christmas range? What’s your favourite body shop scent? Let me know in the comments below!

Affordable outfits with Everything5Pounds.com

Collaborations, Outfits, Product Reviews, Uncategorized

Hello beauties, recently I received a amazing email from Everything5pounds to collaborate and choose four items for free to style. I already was a huge fan of Everything5pounds and frequently put in orders so was frilled to receive some goodies for free.

For those of you who may not know what Everything5pounds is, it’s a clothing website that sell everything from women’s clothing, men’s clothing, kids clothing, shoes, accessories and homeware at the amazing price of (you guessed it) £5 per item.

I apologise that the photos are indoors, I did plan to shoot these over the weekend but the weather was horrendous so indoor shots will have to do!

Disclaimer- a few of the clothing items featured in this post were gifted to me but all opinions are honest and my own.

The first item I picked was this stunning Knitted Fringed Trim Poncho. I really love the ‘Burberry’ vibes and it’s super warm and comfy. Absolutely perfect for the autumn weather at the moment. I styled this with a pair of faux leather trousers (also from everything5pounds that I bought separately) and my H&M baker hat.

I still can’t believe this is only £5!

The second item I picked up is this Window Pane Printed Sheer Jumpsuit it’s such a soft light material and can be style casual with converse or heeled boots or can be dressed up with heels. I love the fit of this jumpsuit (I always size up on this site as things tend to come up small)

The last two items I picked is a outfit to lounge in, the first being this gorgeous Heart Knitted Jumper, It’s so soft and feels so good on the skin. Paired with these Causal Tie Up Jogging Trousers which are super comfy and fit like a dream. The perfect outfit to be lazy in!

As a little treat for you guys I was given a limited use code to give you 5% off. Use code ‘REBECCA_5’
