LMX - Little Mix Makeup Brand Review Part 1 Shout out to my Pout

Hello my lovelies,


I was so intrigued when I saw that there was a new makeup collection exclusive to Boots. LMX is a brand brought to us by Little Mix band members. They have everything from eyeshadows to highlighters.

I purchased a couple of box sets from the Boots 3 for 2 range. Sadly one item came broken. I was gutted but Ho hum, I moved on and just reviewed the rest of the products on their own. I will continue my reviews of the brand as soon as I get my replacement.

So my two items I have thoroughly tested are the Shout out to my Pout Liquid Lipstick and Liner collection (rrp £18) and the Rock in the Gold Get the Look Palette (£14).

Lets start with the lip products, get the negative out of the way early. I purchased this kit of 4 lip liners and liquid lipsticks. I chose this specifically because it was nude tones and I thought well at least one will suit me, how wrong was I. I found them so orange toned, none of them suited my skin tone I was so dissapointed. They tout this as a nude collection but none of these colours are nude. Even the dark colour which I am assuming they were trying to be inclusive of darker skin tones, but this colour would only suit a very dark skin tone and still I don't think it would look nude.
 
The lipliners themselves I cannot fault. They are creamy and glide on easily. They lasted hours, even when I tested them on their own using them to fill in my lips fully. For me the lipliners were the winner of this purchase. 

The lipsticks however were not enjoyed as much. Apart from Perfect Pout they dried quick enough and had good coverage. I felt the formula was too drying. I could see every line and crack in my lips and the more I talked the more the product cracked on my lips. After around an hour I had product gathering in the corners of my mouth. I felt very aware that I had product on my lips and it was not a comfortable feeling. 
 
Unfortunately for my first purchase from this brand it was not a positive review. Let me know if you have tried their products and how you got on with them.

Thank you so much for stopping by check back next week to see my thoughts on the Rock n Gold Palette.

Love and hugs,

Lyndsey

Fibromyalgia isn't a real illness!!

Hello my lovelies,

I hope this post finds you well. Yes you read this right. I don't believe that Fibromyalgia is a real illness!!

Ok ok, put the pitch forks down!! Before you start a lynch mob, I am not saying that people with it aren't sick. Quite the opposite. I just feel that this mystery illness Fibromyalgia has more to it than just one illness!


For a start it really isn't a diagnosis at all. It is the final straw after a process of elimination. You go through so many tests you will have had more pricks than kerplunk! You will have seen so many different doctors that you will feel like you see them more than your family. By the time they see you don't have a, b, c or d they have no clue so they tell you it is Fibromyalgia. They don't know how you got it, why you got it or really how to treat it either.Every study that is done contradicts the previous study. Some say its to do with nerves, some say its to do with blood. Some doctors claim there is a test to diag…

Living with Chronic Illnesses: Grieving for me

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well. I made a video a few years ago on this subject, but I don't feel I fully articulated what I was trying to capture very well.

I have lived most of my life with pain, exhaustion and constant illness but nothing could have prepared me for what I would come up against 6 years ago.

I was working in a nursing home, as a care assistant, studying Health and Social Care with plans to go in to nursing. I wanted to work as a nurse in a home. I loved my job. I loved what I could do to help those I was caring for. I had been taking pain relief for around 10 years by this stage, mostly codeine, every so often increasing to tramadol. Generally that was only for short periods. I had spent 6 weeks off sick from a viral infection. My doctor tried to convince me that this was due to stress in my marriage. He made me believe that it was my body trying to cope with the fact my husband and I were having fertility issues.

It was months after that when I…

Top 10 Summer Must Haves in my Makeup Bag

Hello my lovelies,

How are you all doing? I hope you are enjoying a beautiful summer like I am. Northern Ireland is having the hottest summer for a long time. It has been beautiful. Of course that brings with it the trails of sweat down our face and makeup that just does not last!!

People are always asking me what I use during the summer. I sweat the whole year round so excessively during the summer. Very attractive I know, I am such a catch lol.

I have tried so many different products, I have given a load of different foundations and BB creams a go to try and find something that doesn't just slide down my face within 5 minutes of applying.
Let's talk about base products first. A lot of the time I don't use a primer during the summer unless I am going out. I have always got my facial SPF on which is moisturising and will help to prepare for putting my powder on.
