Review : NYX 'Matte Finish' Setting Spray

Hi everyone,

I recently mentioned this product in my Lush & other goods haul video (link is here) and I thought I would give a little mention to it on here to let you know my thoughts after using this product.

This is only the second product I have purchased from the NYX range and I'm really pleased I found this.  I was shopping in my local Next and happened to come across a small range of the NYX goodies and I could not really decide on what I wanted but I thought this make-up setting spray was a good investment.

I picked this up in the 'matte' finish but they did also sell a 'dewy' finish.  I will almost certainly be going back to purchase the dewy finish setting spray as I am really pleased with the results of the matte spray.

This little product helps set my make up and keep it in place and looking 'just applied' fresh throughout the day with just a few tiny sprays. This was in my opinion a fairly inexpensive product and I feel for the amount of money spent that this is a really good value for money.  

I plan on trying out other products from the NYX range in the future and if you fancy trying this setting spray out then price is £12.00 and link can be found here.

If you want to see if your local Next stocks NYX then a list of all stores can be found here.

Review : L'oreal L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick by Color Riche in Molto Mauve

Hello everybody,

I have mentioned the L'oreal L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick by Color Riche in my recent April Favourites video (link is here if you want to check it out) but I thought I would just extend my thoughts further on this product as it really one of the best products I have bought for quite some time.

I bought this in the shade 500 Molto Mauve and this just a very subtle, nude pink.  It is an easily wearable shade and I love wearing this over the top of a pink lipstick or just on its own.

I originally picked this up on a slight whim whilst on a Boot's shopping trip and when I looked at the applicator on the tester it just looked like a nice nude that I could see myself wearing daily.

The product itself is supposed to be a hybrid between a lipstick and a gloss therefore you're supposed to get the colour intensity of a lipstick but with the finish of a lip gloss.  I must admit I didn't realise how glossy it would be and if you are not a lip gloss fan I would say this may not be one for you.  Having said that I am partial to a lip gloss just to shake things up every once in a while.  I find lip glosses are very good for day wear and done right they can look very nice (I am not talking about the kind of glosses you used to wear at the Year 8 disco!).

Right off the bat you can see the colour intensity behind the gloss and this isn't one of your typically 'sticky' lip glosses that will always leave you clambering to get your hair to detach itself from you lips on a windy day.

I really enjoy using this product, it applies nicely, smells lovely and just looks great.  It doesn't have much staying power but then I didn't expect it to be one of those ones you can't get off, it is at the end of the day a gloss.

I love this product so much I am already planning on picking up a few more colours to add to the ever growing lip collection.  You can never have too many lip products though, right?

If you wish to pick this up then these are usually £8.00 and link can be found here.

Have you tried any other shades, if so I would love to hear from you or even if you have tried the same shade as me, I'd love to know your thoughts.
