FAKE Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks VS FAKE Kylie Jenner Liquid Matte Lipsticks… Battle of the fakes.

Hello beauties,

So recently I have ordered some new liquid lipsticks from ‘Huda Beauty’ and ‘Kylie Jenner’ to see how they compare.

On the left we have the Huda Beauty and on the right we have the Kylie Jenner.

The Packaging

Personally the packaging looked the same as the original products, I couldn’t tell a difference until I noticed that two completed different shades of the Huda lipsticks were both called called ‘Gossip Gurl’.

Huda – 0

Kylie – 1

The product

The Huda lipsticks smell great, the smell kind of like vanilla, its a good scent something that makes you want to use the product. On the other hand the Kylie fakes smelt like paint, this was slightly off-putting as no one wants to apply paint, it also makes you wonder what is in the product but then again nothing can actually compare to the application and wear.

Huda – 1

The Application

The Huda lipsticks applied gorgeously, there was the right amount of product on the applicator whilst being very smooth and light during the application, the colours were very pigmented which is something I really liked about these lipsticks.

Whilst the Kylie lipsticks looked great the application was a bit more difficult. It was very fast drying which I know can be a positive however in this situation it was stressful as I could no get the application right. The lip colours are beautiful however this didn’t project onto the lips, however they were still very pigmented.

The drying process and wear

The Huda lipsticks took around 3 minutes to dry, which is a good time as no one wants to wait around for their lipstick to dry, it also didn’t feel to drying on the lips which is a plus! I hate to say it but the wear wasn’t the best. I went out for a meal with this lipstick on, I ended up having to remove it as it was smearing round my face. Gross I know. In saying this I had no embarrassing lipstick teeth moments until dinner!

The Kylie lipsticks did come through on the wear as I said before the drying application was way to quick whilst feeling incredibly drying however the wear made up for this. No lipstick teeth situations and eating dinner was a sucsess!

Removal of the Huda lipsticks was easy, no rubbing on your lips just a baby wipe will do. The was no staining to which I tend to struggle with.

Okay so there was a disaster with the Kylie Products! THEY WOULD’NT COME OFF!! I was stuck for 3 days with this lipstick on which makes me question the ingredients. the staining was horrendous and I was left with extremely sore, dry, stained lips as a result.

The winner

As a result of this testing Huda takes the winnings, I must say that both lipsticks had pros and cons, if they mushed both together they could create something brilliant. I would never recommend buying fake beauty products as the ingredients could be potentially harmful to you, however I do know how tempting it is when you see. good fake for a good price! That is why I wanted to test these for you, to see if its worth the risk!
Let me know down below if you have tried any good fakes before and how they compared to something else.



Exciting clothing HAUL!!

Hello beauties, today I have a haul for you. I probably shouldn’t of brought all this stuff however I did and I love it all. Right now I’m sitting all cosy, I got caught in the worst rain I’ve seen in ages! The point of me telling you this is that all my new clothes that I was wearing got drenched nevertheless they are currently drying on the radiator, it’s not all bad I have a bar of Oreo dairy milk-yumm yum.

The first item on my list of beautiful goodies is…

TIMBERLAND BOOTS, I bloody love them. I always um and ah about these as I adore them but the price tag hurts me. I would never be able to afford these alone so me and my boyfriend brought one shoe each. Worked out £65 each from office. It was the last pair and I think the women serving me wanted them as she seemed a bit annoyed that I was buying them…oops. I bet your thinking the colours a bit odd, I really love the colour it’s different to the classic Timberland boot colour whilst not being to bright. The colour works perfectly with most outfits, they are causing a few blisters but hopefully that subsides soon.

Next is a skirt from Topshop

i love Topshop clothing, I wouldn’t buy something that wasn’t in the sale though due to my tight budget being a student and all. This was £20 in the sale-I adore it. I find difficult to find skirts that fit around my bum and waist perfectly, but this skirt has a thumbs up from me. Plus it matches my next item.

I do have a obsession with this colour, I always tend to put my boyfriend in the direction of burgundy coloured clothes also, it’s great! These shoes were from New Look and cost £19 pound, what a bargain! I wanted a pair of heeled boots that were not too high for going out and nicer occasions as I am always in either converse, trainers or my new found love for my Timberland boots. I did have to size down in the shoes due to them not having my size however it was well worth it for these beauties.

I love this I think it’s great. I thought this would look so cute with a pair of boyfriend jeans or high waisted jeans I needed some more T-shirts. £5 a great price, plus I do love Harry Potter it reminds me of the Harry Potter puppet pals which is brilliant. That’s all from me(I may need to make a part 2) comment your thoughts and opinions below Lots of love Alex.xox

L’Oréal Paris Infallible TOTAL COVER foundation review

Hello beauts, my blog is back. To kick things off I am starting with a well overdue foundation review followed by a very exciting beauty and clothing haul tomorrow. So let’s get to the point the L’Oréal Infallible foundation..

Now first off the bottle is a yes from me, I definitely prefer plastic to glass foundation bottles. Yes glass is visually pleasing however is it worth the sudden rush of panic every time your bag of goods is dropped(plus if your clumsy like me-that’s often). I brought this after many good reviews it cost £9.99 from Superdrug on a 3for2 deal, because it was 3for2 I thought I would go all out and buy the L’Oréal beauty blender too-it wouldn’t feel right not too.

We will just ignore the upside down photo and the dirty beauty blender. The consistency for this product was a shock to me, it’s a thick mousse not in the slightest oily which is perfect for my acne prone skin. This applied smoothly, blendable and true to colour so there was no nasty surprises. Now this claims to be ‘total cover’ so it’s only right to talk about that, it’s BRILLIANT all the red blotches gone. Due to the consistency I expected a heavy feel but that wasn’t there, I forgot the foundation was there. I’ve tried many foundations and I actually gave up using it for a year due to not being able to find the perfect one for my difficult skin, and I bit the bullet and brought this beauty. My new makeup holy grail. L’Oréal Infallible.

That’s all from me beauts, leave below your comments and opinions on this foundation. 🙂


Driving, Jobs and Shopping! 

Hiya everyone! Today I thought I would give you a tad update on things…

Number one… I have finally started to take driving lessons, yes I know I’m a little late but I never had the money but now I do(well I’m scraping together every penny to be a adult with a car that might possibly have eyelashes). How do I have the pennies to scrape up you may ask well… another adult step. A proper job…kinda, well they call when they need me thank god that’s a lot lately otherwise my dreams of having a mint car with eyelashes is over. I get I have to pass the test yet for my dreams to become reality but we have to start somewhere!

It’s mine and my boyfriends 3 years next month and he brought me some beautiful shoes, now they are no Jimmy Choo but to me a pair of converse is so much more exciting than a pair of heels I am unable to walk in leaving myself looking extremely strange to everyone around me. Just the original high top converse. Whenever I buy converse I go for crazy colour schemes and out there patterns but the original pair are the best bloody thing ever!

I also have been using a new toothpaste and mouthwash… more adult things(truly a adult when toothpaste excites you).  This is the Beverly Hills Formula Perfect White Black mouthwash and toothpaste. This can be brought in superdrug for £4.99(i got mine on sale for £1.50… bargain!) I never thought these ‘whitening’ products worked but this works wonders. Must say it’s a little strange using black toothpaste but it becomes normal. Tea and coffee stains are removed and my teeth have never looked better plus I’m definitely a fan of a bright smile.

That’s all from me sugar dumplings(naa that one isn’t great).

 Let me know if you love Beverly Hills Formula as much as me and if you are a converse or heels girl!
