Lippy in London Giveaway Win

I am one of those people who never.ever.ever.ever.ever win anything, so you can imagine my excitement when I won a giveaway hosted by Hannah from Lippy in London. She held the giveaway to celebrate the 100 followers milestone - I was quite surprised by this because I have been reading her posts for a while now and I feel that she deserves far more followers than that! Her blog is a mixture of beauty reviews, style posts and an introduction to quirky products. I would definitely recommend you check out her blog!

This is what I won!

Hannah had only listed the Colour Tattoo eyeshadow, Loreal eye liner and Revlon Lip Butter in her giveaway but added a sample of a body moisturiser and a Clarins exfoliator. I won these last month and I feel that I can give honest opinions on these products because I have tried them out over a long period of time.

I have been meaning to try the Maybelline Colour Tattoo eye shadows for a while now but I never got around to purchase so I was really excited to see the gold one in my parcel. I was a bit dubious about whether or not it would last for 24 hours, and I haven't actually worn it for 24 hours straight, but I have found that it lasts for the 16-18 hours that I do wear it. They remind me of the Benefit creaseless eye shadows and I would recommend them as a cheaper alternative.

The Revlon Lip Butter was another product that I had heard about a lot but hadn't got around to trying. I find that my lips get really dry throughout the day so I don't wear lipsticks or anything that can emphasise the dry lips. I was pleasantly surprised by this product though because even though it gives great coverage on the lips and it is pigmented, it manages to moisturise my lips rather than dry them out. The pink colour is also really eye catching without being too overwhelming. 

I hadn't heard much about the Loreal  Super Liner but I am really impressed with this product. It has a spongy applicator, which took me a while to get the hang of, but when I figured it out applying the eye liner was super easy. You can build up the line for a night look or go for a more natural look during the day. The only thing I would say is that make sure you don't give your eyes a rub when wearing this because you WILL have panda eyes!

Have you tried any of these products? 

What is your opinion on them?

  3. Congrats! Im the same way, I never win anything either. I love the 24 Hour Eyeshadow tattoo, I have most colors and they are great for underwater photoshoots and long time wear!
