EOS: Coconut Milk Lip Balm

This is another highly celebrity endorsed product that I have been wanting to review for the longest time…

I finally have been able to because it’s Winter, and in Winter, we all need a celebrity endorsed sphere lip balm which costs £6 but is so small that that you can eat it in less than one mouth full (not that you would because it goes on the lips not inside them). Am I right?

I purchased EOS‘ (Evolution of Smooth) Coconut Milk. I’m not going to lie to you, the only other reason I bought it (other than wanting to see what all the fuss was about) was that it claims to be Organic. I love Organic produce, I try to use as much Organic things as possible, especially in my meals.

Get noticed with visibly softer lips. Nourish your lips and enjoy the delicious flavor of this coconut milk lip balm!

The packaging of EOS Lip Balm sphere? As small as it is, there’s no denying it’s unique, and cute. The Coconut Milk one came in a pale pink sphere which was sweet.

The scent? Delicious. Like Coconut Milk which is expected because I purchased a Coconut Milk lip balm… 😂 Imagine if it came smelling like Chicken. I’d send it back or deliver it to the ‘Pengest Munch’ and self-titled: ‘Chicken Connoisseur’ to review! It’s hardly “roadman” worthy, but it’ll do…

Taste? 😋 I wanted to eat it in one sitting. But, the cost, along with the fact that it’ll never fill me up, had me abstaining!

The result? Your bog standard lip balm. Yes, the ingredients – as far as I know – are organic, but the results are not extra-terrestrial or noticeable. What I mean is, no one has stopped me in the street to tell me that my lips look “Organic”. My friends don’t say: “Oh wow! Your lips felt a special kind of Organic on my cheeks, you wearing EOS?” when I go to give them a little peck. I’m not denying that my lips didn’t feel soft afterwards, but isn’t that the main purpose of a lip balm? You wouldn’t buy a lip balm if it said it’ll make your lips dry and coarse, would you?

Price? LOL. Just, LOL. (and I’m not talking Miley Cyrus’ – who has endorsed EOS on her Insta – film). £6 for a tiny pot of lip balm which hydrated as much as a Vaseline tin would. Do the maths!

Is it work six “squids”? If it weren’t for its “organic” claim, I’d have said no. It’s too small and doesn’t hydrate my lips any more than a usual lip balm that I could get for a pound or two. Vaseline is cost-effective and works better. But, then, you’re not buying into a celebrity endorsed product when you purchase a tin of petroleum jelly. 😂

The moral of this post is: just ’cause it’s endorsed, that doesn’t mean that it’s an exceptional product for its price… Although, as I said, I suppose you’re buying into the brand and Organic produce which makes up for it, I suppose…

Look – it works, I just expected a little more from it. Remember, celebrities most probably don’t use this every day! Don’t forget that they have enough money to get laser lip treatments (if such things exist) if they wanted!

LUSH: Tisty Tosty

Another day, another Valentine’s Day special melting/fizzing bath melt to review…

This time it’s the turn of Tisty Tosty. Listen, I don’t know how many times I’ve got to break it to you… I have no idea as to how Lush come up with names for their products. I hazard a guess it’s just a case of choosing the weirdest and most unrealistic sounding words, and putting them together to sound like a tongue twister.

You never know… We may wake up tomorrow to find that they’ve released ‘How Much Wood Would a Wood Chuck Chuck if a Wood Chuck could Chuck Wood’ as a massage bar. Only the finest Oak and Elm oils used in that one… 😆

Anyway, so yes, onto Tisty Tosty. I have tried this one a couple of times before, I like it… If you love roses, you’ll love this! There are seven real dry rosebuds embedded in this heart shaped bath melt. I love this for many reasons, one of which is that it’s not shaped like their other melts – in the shape of a spheres. Lush have pulled it out of the bag with this one, it’s  LOVE(ly) and very fitting for Valentine’s Day.

He loves me, he loves me not – Tisty Tosty is based on a medieval love potion. Studded with seven real rosebuds, it is scented with a captivating combination of floral orris root powder, rose, and lemon. As this dissolves in the bath, you may fall in love with it as the scent of geranium, jasmine and rose create a spellbinding fragrance. Rose oil also gets to work soothing broken hearts – it’s used by aromatherapists to lift the spirits.

Now for the cool and interesting part… Apparently, rumour has it that there is a mystical love potion attached to this bath melt. Read it below:


You’re supposed to drop it into a hot bath filled with water (because what’s the use of dropping it in an empty one?) and then let the roses pull away from the salts. Then, place one rose at either side of the bath (in all four corners) and sit in the middle chanting some weird love spell (as seen in picture above) and then playing “They Love Me, They Love Me Not” with the remainder of the rosebuds’ petals.

Similarly to Lover Lamp, this one is white and makes the water a bland colour. Having said that, the scent and the rosebuds make it all the more worthwhile.

I like it. I like that it’s based on a medieval love potion and that it’s Valentine’s Day specific. I love love, I love this and I love Lush!

MAC: Oval 6

On my way home today, I picked up a MAC Oval 6 brush.

Ideal for blush, foundation or powder, the rounded, medium-sized brush applies, blends and contours all over the face or cheeks for even, flawless coverage. Made of synthetic fibres. Handle features special grip design and tilted brush tip for ultimate precision with a sleek black finish. A M·A·C store exclusive.

I took it home to try it and oh boy… It’s got me so bad that I don’t understand why I hadn’t used Oval brushes sooner!

Although I still want to try the silicone beauty blender ‘Silisponge’ that everyone’s talking about, I believe that these Oval brushes are going to come out on top for me and they’ll be enough to change not only the game but all the games!

The application? The word “flawless” doesn’t even cut the mustard, ketchup, Mayo, barbecue sauce or whatever other condiment you prefer! I don’t even think Beyoncé knew what flawless meant before she tried MAC’s Oval brush, which let’s face it, if she has, I’m almost certain she’s got a Special Edition one made from liquid gold and unicorn hair bristles. 🤣

I like that it gives an even and smooth coverage and that it doesn’t waste my powder or keep most of the product on the brush like other brushes might…

However, I’ve read that this brush doesn’t bode too well with washing liquid foundation or blusher out… I haven’t used it for those purposes so I wouldn’t know. I use it to apply my powder foundation, it’s worked amazingly well so far.

MAC‘s Oval 6 Medium sized brush is perfect for applying foundation, powder, contour, blusher or highlighter. It’s a great choice for use all over. Also, don’t even get me started on its softness… Oh my! It’s like stroking a really fluffy teady with hair instead of fur… If that makes sense?

I think the cleaning of this brush is the only bug bear that I’ll encounter, but I think if you don’t use a lot of products, and look after it well, regularly applying brush cleaner, it’ll be fine.

This brush is going to be featured a lot in my new vlogging series. I think my vlogs are just going to be me living my life as I usually do it… A lot happens to me each day which makes me wonder how I’ve even made it this far, and this is no word of an exaggeration! 😂

Expect a lot of Bridget Jones and Miranda Hart moments… Take today for example, little ol’ me got on a train (at rush hour), minding my own business, when the tallest people are holding on to the side bars and “shawty” (in comparison) had to tip-toe just to reach the bars connected to the train’s ceiling! Then, out of nowhere, a lady elbows me in the boob as she makes her way to exit – I assume and am hoping unintentionally – trust me when I say: ‘Victoria Secret‘ needs not one knighthood but ALL of them! OBE, MBE, Obe Wan Kenobi, everything… #MakeItRain

If it weren’t for Vicky and her “Secret“, I’d have a dent where my breast would’ve “used to be” but thankfully still is! So, you see, I need to capture these moments on video and not just typed word.


Roll up, roll up, ladies and gents (who are partial to the wearage makeup)! This one’s for YOU…

Have you lot tried Oval shaped brushes? They are all the rage at the moment and I want “in”!

Are they good? Which ones do you recommend that I try?

I ask this because I want to publish a comparisons blog post about them soon. Reviewing a few brands and giving my two pence (would say “cents” but I’m not American, so…) on them would be fun!

However, I’d like to know which ones you’d like to see in my review and/or if you’ve tried any, (good or bad), mention them below and I’ll review them… Just – don’t tell me whether they’re good or not ’cause I’m in that “money-spending on crap things that I won’t use again” mood… 😂 #joking

MAC Studio Fix Powder Compact


You know what? “Imma let you finish” but… OH MY LIFE! I didn’t actually know how good MAC Studio Fix Powder Compact was (on its own) until I tried it, today! Oh, wait – that may be a lie… I think I’ve worn it before and forgotten about it. Thing is, I honestly do believe Dory the fish was made with me in mind (probably in the short-term memory part of that mind). I’m GREAT at work and in my professional life (which is work) but my social, personal and private (which is personal) life? I struggle to remember my own name/s.

Anyway, BE-AU-TIFUL powder foundation! I’ve got it in two shades… One for my highlighter, and the other for all over. BANGING! In the words of Jessie J and Nicki Minaj ft. Ariana Grande (and I don’t mean writing style).

A one-step powder and foundation that gives skin a smooth, flawless, all-matte finish with medium to full coverage. Long-wearing, velvety texture allows skin to breathe. Available in a wide range of colours.

Also – yes, MAC usually is heavy, but with powder foundation, you’re the boss. You can choose whether you want full coverage (pick the perfect tone though or risk looking like the deposits of an ashtray).

God bless, try it (if you want to), peace out, say hi to your mum, and you’re a legend!
