Milani Matte Lipsticks - Anastasia Beverly Hills DUPE



If you follow me on my YouTube channel, them I'm sure you already know the love I have for the Milani matte lipsticks, and it turns out that owning 3 of them wasn't enough for me.

I already own 60 Matte Innocence, 61 Matte Nude & 67 Matte Confident. I was so amazed by them, and their incredible price (£4!!!) that I really couldn't stop my self purchasing the above.

One of the reasons that these lipsticks blow me away is because they have a matte finish but are not drying in the slightest, which is one of the best things you could ask for in a matte lipstick. They really have hit the nail on the head with the formula.

You can definitely get away with applying these without a lip liner, however, if you want that perfect lip shape then I would always recommend using a lip liner for the crisp, clean edge.

I like to purchase mine off of Beautyjoint.com - this is the only site I go on to purchase my much wanted American beauty products.

The only downside to Milani is that they aren't physically in the UK! 

Have you tried these lipsticks? Do you have a favourite Milani product?

Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment



I've spoken about this GlamGlow mask on my YouTube channel before, and given it the raving it deserves. I'm sure everybody has heard about this, but I thought I would type up my two cents for what it's worth.

This mask claims to help in a skin crisis, also known as visible pores, blackheads & breakouts. It suggests that it can also help with brightening and evening out the skin tone - perfect for anyone with minor scarring.

The mask is costly, at £44.99 it does make it tear shedding to part with the money, but when a products actually achieves it's claims you feel like you can justify that purchase a little more. I usually pick this up from Marks & Spencers, I'm not sure why but I always prefer buying in store than I do online, I think it's the instant gratification.

You can use this mask all over the face for up to 17 times (roughly), or you can use it to treat specific areas. I usually leave this on for 20 minutes after applying a small layer over my entire face with my fingers, and then remove it with a face wipe, followed by avocado oil to replenish the skin. However, they do recommend that you remove this with warm water.

Have you tried a GlamGlow mask?

NARS Highlighter dupe?



As someone with oily skin, I can't say I reach for face highlighters on many occasions. I have a strange relationship with them, I love looking at them and swatching them, but once they hit my face I want to remove it straight away. On any other skin type, they look absolutely gorgeous.

For this reason, I tend to calm myself down when I add many to my basket. However, when I spotted this one by Makeup Revolution, I couldn't help but make the purchase.

This is the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Golden Lights. Not only had I heard that this was a great dupe for a very well known Nars highlighter in the blogosphere called Albatross, but the golden toned highlighters are great for a more olive complexion.

For £3 I was tempted to grab them all, but due to the above I was hesitant. Needless to say, I will be going back to add more to my basket (on there website they even have a highlighter palette that I definitely need right?!). I like to apply this product with a brush, and sweep it across the top of my cheek bones, on my cupids bow, and very lightly on my nose.

This leaves a gorgeous glow, without being too much or in your face, but if you are a highlight junkie, you could definitely build this up to a stronger highlight if you wanted.

Can I get a woop woop for highlighters that work for oily skin?!

Have you tried any of the MUR Highlighters? What is your one products you are lusting after by Makeup Revolution?
