Love it / Loathe it

Love it

Know what rules? The Accessorize makeup range from Superdrug! I’ve been wearing their lipgloss pretty much non-stop for the last week or so (well not during sleepy time. Even I don’t love makeup that much!) and I really like how it looks and feels; it’s pretty, shimmery and although it’s sticky enough to last a fair while on my lips it’s not sticky enough to feel yucky

The packaging is really cute and the slight shimmer it gives is beautiful. I’m a sucker for a nice smelling product and this one reminds me of vanilla and toffee so it really is good enough to eat. Also, the colour is quite intense so unlike a lot of my glosses this is one I often use when I’ve gone for a more subtle eye makeup look
Loathe it

I just can’t stand the Glazewear lipglosses by AVON. There isn’t any one thing that bothers me about these, it’s more a combination of little things, such as the texture; I’ve found it to be incredibly drying on my lips and when I apply these glosses they end up looking “cracked” in no time at all (where the gloss dries out and you can see the colour more intensely in the little lines of your lips)

The smell isn’t very pleasant either, the glazewear intense smells like felt tip pens and it was enough to put me off from the start! As if that wasn’t enough the actual colour isn’t great either, it’s just average and looks extremely plain so I’d actually prefer to stick with some Vaseline or Burts Bees lip blam cos they give a little sheen to the lips and feel lovely too :)

I adore the Accessorize range. I have the lipgloss with an applicator and it's not sticky at all. I haven't tried any make up from Avon - I wouldn't just want to order from a catalogue!

I would sooo love to try the Accessorize lip gloss! Lip gloss is definitely something I ALWAYS want! ;)

I'll have to try the accessorize gloss out! Always good to have cheapy on hand. I lost my beloved Jemma Kid lipgloss a few weeks back, I'm still gutted now, it was a freebie in a mag x

Stacey I have a Jemma Kid gloss that I got with a magazine and I absolutely love it! I'm guessing they're probably the same ones and I'm sure they cost a small fortune in Boots. Ever noticed how you only ever seem to lose makeup you really like?!
