BEAUTY: Skin Chemists Rose Quartz Lip Plump Review

So skin chemists has to be one of my favourite brands the only down side is the price... it tends to be pretty pricey.  

It may be expensive but I have never been disappointed with their products and I have quite a few. I tend to buy them direct from skin chemists or if I’m lucky they have the odd one or two at TK Maxx at a seriously reduced price. 

Iv treated myself to a few new things from the collection recently and I’m so excited to share. 

Rose Quartz youth defence lip plump 



What skin chemists have to say about their product ...
The point of this plump is to hydrate lips whilst giving them a fuller pout with a glossy soft finish. It’s designed to look and have the benefits of a lip balm and gloss. 



It includes a key ingredient called volulip (never heard of it? Me either) which comes from the “kiss me quick” plant, aiming to stimulate the production of Hyaluronic Acid, producing an active plumping effect. Circulation of blood to the surface of the lip is further enhanced by Peppermint Oil producing a fuller pout.



Ok so we know what they say... but how does it measure up?

The packing is really simple and slightly clinical (like their entire product range), I really like this look for me it jeans they have put their money into the product rather than the packaging. The tube is clear showing a light pink lip gloss, on opening the tube you smell a Pleasant and fresh peppermint. 
It’s really lovely to apply, it’s a soft feeling gloss which isn’t sticky. The lips feel fresh after application, I love the way it feels in my lips as well as smells. 



I have a really think upper lip and honestly I hate it (would totally have fillers) I noticed a slight increase in its size, it was a natural increase so nothing to OTT. 

It costs £94.90 and you can get it here 

Honestly is it worth the price?

I’m on the fence as much as I love the brand I don’t feel this is worth nearly £100 I feel it should be more the £40 mark, as it does work. 

I’m glad Iv got it and I would use it as a daily plumper as it doesn’t tingle or hurt and it does make a difference to my lip size. 

Have you tried the brand before? 

Look out for reviews of these coming up soon

BEAUTY: Contour Cosmetics The Ultimate Illuminating Set Review

Who doesn’t love a highlighter.. I brought myself this contour cosmetics spotlight highlighter pallet quite a while ago. Iv not really had the opportunity to wear it till recently, I was super excited about it to be honest. 



It consists of 3 highlighters 

Verve - shimmery white pearl
Mink - champagne with golden flecks 
Clique - shimmering rose



The pallet gives you a diverse selection of colours for all occasions. They are well pigmented and easy to apply and blend. 



They work well to build up the highlight also so you can have a subtle or dramatic look depending on what you fancy. 

It’s is £24 and it’s vegan and cruelty free, I really like this pallet and it’s one I will be using more often.
