Miners Cosmetics 2012 Lipstick and Cream Face Sticks

I love receiving parcels from Paul Murray Plc, as I never know what they will be sending me each time! I have loved their Miners Cosmetics lip glosses as they were so moist and smells gorgeous. This time, I get to try their lipsticks, and their new cheek sticks!

My review:
Miners Cosmetics lipsticks smells as lovely and cute, like sweets, as their lip glosses. The moisture effect lipsticks are very easy to glide on, but not oily at all. The colour is still intense, without needing to apply several layers.

My review:

Lip Colour range are still easy to glide on, but the colour is more intense than the Moisture Effect range. The Dreamer I tried on my lips was a bit rough, but could be because of the glitter particles in the lipstick. (This is the only lipstick that has glitter particles out of the 12 I was given)

My review:

This range is definitely thicker than the other two, with a really intense colour. Although thick, my lips stayed soft. Have you seen adverts with models wearing matte effect lipsticks, where the colour is highly saturated? These lipsticks can definitely give you that effect.


Overall, my favourite is the moisture effect range, as I love how easy it glides on. Knowing that it has Aloe Vera and Jojoba is a plus to me, and the colour comes through easily too. My favourite colour, however, is Dreamer from the Lip Colour effect range.

My review:

I really like the cream face sticks. They are all very subtle, meaning that it's very easy to build up the colour to the intensity you want instead of overdoing it. I used a brush to brush it on and the application was very easy.

I normally don't use bronzer, but I use this one as a low light. The pink blusher is exactly the shade I am using, but because there is only one shade, I'm not sure whether it is everyone's cup of tea?
