Latest Born Pretty Picks | Kylie Lipkit & Charlotte Tilbury Dupes?!*

Born Pretty sell everything you could ever think of in the world. Ever. From beauty products, to clothing, jewellery and stationery - to home & garden items. All at insanely cheap prices AND with free worldwide shipping. Can't cope.

It's for this reason that I'm so fascinated with their website. Yous must have all clicked on by now that I'm broke AF and one of those skatty people who goes out of their way to pick up crusty pennies that have been dropped on the floor. Regardless of how likely they are to have been urinated on by local scallys. 

I guess what I'm trying to say here, before I got sidetracked talking about wee, is that I love, need and BREATHE a good bargain. Which is what Born Pretty are all about.

I've been working with Born Pretty for .. probably around 2 years now, is it? Wow, that's flown by fast! And I've tried all kinds. Jewellery, nail products, makeup and dupes of various different beauty brands. Both high end and otherwise. And for today's post, I've picked out some right little babes for you, of a beauty variety [my fav.] I'm talking glitter - and affordable, accessible dupes

Does that outer packaging look... a little familar to you? To me, it screams Kylie Lipkit; but not enough to cause any legal implications. Nice work, Magical Halo haha! 

I've never actually been lucky enough [or rich enough] to get my hands on a legit Kylie product [though I desperately want to, so if there's anyone rich or insanely kind reading this, feel free to send some my way] but if the formula is anything like this dupe, I feel I'm going to be obsessed. This lipgloss is AWESOME and I can't cope with its price OR pigmentation.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Born Pretty Makeup Dupes Lipstick Glitter Matte Lipgloss Review with Swatches

You may have seen a sneak peek of this lipgloss on my Insta Stories, as I was just full on flabbergasted [what a word] at how brilliant this stuff is. It's the most pigmented matte lipgloss I think I've ever owned - and long lasting is an understatement! I literally put my arm under running water and scrubbed at this stuff with a towel after swatching it and it wasn't shifting for anyone! I need to try all the other shades in this line and I need them like, now. I think this is the best product I've ever tried from Born Pretty tbh. Strong statement, but I mean, just look at it. 

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Born Pretty Makeup Dupes Lipstick Glitter Matte Lipgloss Review with Swatches

And that's just one with application. The colour pay-off is unreal - for £2.50 and free shipping, my inner David Dickinson [think Bargain Hunt without the tragic fleeces and that's pretty much my life] is like, full on weeping and clapping his orangey-fake-tanned hands in joy / disbelief.

Trampy but true: I fell asleep with the swatch STILL on my arm and I've woken up today [at 2pm, standard] and it's still intact. You can never say my trialling products isn't thorough!

I am obsessed with glitter at the moment, and I loved the way this eyeshadow's packaging looked online. I'll hold my hands up - I didn't really read too much into the product's description for this item [I'm like a magpie, I see something shiny and I'm all over it] but I expected this to be a powder. Instead, it's like a gooey, gel consistency - which explains the mad little applicator stick that comes with it and massively confused me at first!

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Born Pretty Makeup Dupes Lipstick Glitter Matte Lipgloss Review with Swatches

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Born Pretty Makeup Dupes Lipstick Glitter Matte Lipgloss Review with Swatches

The gel itself smells / feels a bit like the goo those weird aliens we used to keep as pets in those eggs in the 90s / 00s did, but if you can get over that, it's pretty good. 

The glitter spreads out within the gel quite a lot when applied - it's very sparkly but doesn't apply as a solid colour; and will need to be used on top of a primer or powder to maintain its staying power. And applied a few times, to layer the glitter up to achieve its maximum effect. But it's very pretty, very cheap and nice to add a little sparkle to the inner of your eye.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Born Pretty Makeup Dupes Lipstick Glitter Matte Lipgloss Review with Swatches

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Born Pretty Makeup Dupes Lipstick Glitter Matte Lipgloss Review with Swatches

In terms of applying it, I can now see why the mad stick included with this product will come in handy! But you can also use a small brush to press it into place - which is how I'll use it; for maximum accuracy and to be able to best blend the glitter with the rest of my overall look.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Born Pretty Makeup Dupes Lipstick Glitter Matte Lipgloss Review with Swatches

Granted, this product was slightly different than I expected, but I do love trying new things and it seems to work pretty well! So I'm happy. The packaging is also totes Instagrammable and very lux looking; so at the very least, it's going to add a splash of glamour to my eyeshadow army!


Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Born Pretty Makeup Dupes Lipstick Glitter Matte Lipgloss Review with Swatches


Just look at this little beaut. From its outer, it's just so Charlotte Tilbury, isn't it? It's not, at all like, but I love its packaging - it's so pretty and will make a fab blogging prop. Another thing Born Pretty is fantastic for. 

Once the lid is removed, it's immediately apparent that it's not a CT special and quality wise, it doesn't come close - but for the price, it's 100% worth it.


Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Born Pretty Makeup Dupes Lipstick Glitter Matte Lipgloss Review with Swatches

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Born Pretty Makeup Dupes Lipstick Glitter Matte Lipgloss Review with Swatches

I've seen these oil, see through lipsticks all over Insta and desperately wanted a slice of the action myself. I've never tried one before, but this lippy smells like sweets, melts onto the lips in a moisturising, soft, oil-like consistency and leaves a long lasting, pink glossy glow. 

It's pretty alright - the ideal shade for a natural makeup day. Making it a 2-in-1 bargain for me - it's totally wearable and a total babe of a blogging prop too.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Born Pretty Makeup Dupes Lipstick Glitter Matte Lipgloss Review

There we have it - another successful Born Pretty makeup dupe haul boxed off. What do you like the look of most from these picks? Have you eyed up anything on their website yet?

Send Nudes ... Namely, Mac Brave Lipsticks

There's only one kinda nude I want to send or receive in my lifetime, and it's 100% not what you think. The nudes I'm talking about are 100% makeup [and 100% NOT dick pics] such as stunning lipstick shades like this one, from Mac.

I've had enough of messages from boys I used to know [as friends] years ago, leading in with a simple 'Hey, how are you?' message which [after I reply with 'I'm good thanks, you?'] suddenly turns sinister ['Yeye gd babe, send nudes.'] FACE PALM.

I'd much rather talk nude... lipsticks and nail polishes, than affairs of the wang variety. All day, err'day. Though I do also enjoy talking about the failed 'ps send nudes' requests I've received in my lifetime, with my girls [and pretty much anyone who'll listen, including Uber drivers. I have no filter / shame.]

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Mac Brave Neutral Pink Nude Satin Lipstick Review

This is Mac's Brave satin finish lipstick; which in my eyes, is the perfect nude for all occasions. It's one I'll repurchase time and time again - an absolute staple in my lip wardrobe. At £16.50, it's not the cheapest item in my lipstick closet, but in all fairness, Mac lippies do seem to last me forever, so I don't have to restock that often.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Mac Brave Neutral Pink Nude Satin Lipstick Review

It's great worn casually, on a day to day basis - it's one of those 'your-lip-colour-but-better' products. I wear it for work most days.

But it's equally as perfect for nights out, or occasions where you're repping a much heavier eye makeup look - as it doesn't detract from the statement eye you're rocking or make you look like you're an angst ridden teenager who's gone a bit OTT with your Mum's makeup collection.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Mac Brave Neutral Pink Nude Satin Lipstick Review

It's a pinky-beige colour with white pearl, which I think has a smidge of a lilacy-blue tone to it, too. It definitely makes my teeth look whiter when I wear it, which leads me to believe that it does have some kind of cool/blue undertones. 

I tend to wear this lipstick teamed with my Mac Soar lip liner; for that extra bit of definition - though it's that versatile, you could legit team it with a number of cheaper nude lip liners for the exact same look. £13.00 for a lip liner does break my soul a little bit, but Soar has lasted me for pure time too, so I'm not gonna beat myself up about it. At all.

Have you tried this shade before? It's definitely one of my all time favourites, and one so versatile that I'd recommend it to anyone looking to make their next / first Mac purchase. 


What are your favourite neutral lipstick shades? Send me nudes babes... but only when it comes to lipstick inspo, obv... ;) Please take note lads.

Scent From Heaven | So..?'s NEW #SoMistHaves For #SS17*

There is rarely a day you'll find me without a So...? body mist in my handbag. I love them - they're fresh, fruity, remind me of summers & memories past and last all day. They're also dead cheap, come in super pretty bottles and are proper lightweight; making them ideal for day-to-day use or to pop in your luggage when you're heading off on holiday. 

They also help me out in emergency situations - such as coping with smelly taxi drivers, as I can spritz to my heart's content for instant, vibrant fragrance that neutralises stinky cabbie odour [or at least masks it well!] I think you get the gist of how big of a role these body mists play in my life.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - So...? Body Mist #SoMistHave Review and Giveaway

You may remember reading about my love for So...?'s very first collection of #SoMistHave sprays on my blog just before Xmas [and if you don't, you should totes click here to do so.] 

So the news that they've just released a range of another six fresh fragrances was music to my ears - and I'm talking like, a full on orchestra-going-for-gold-on-the-trumpets level of music

And the day these new #MistHaves arrived on my doorstep was just like all that music to my ears, but with the volume cranked to max. I couldn't wait to try them.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - So...? Body Mist #SoMistHave Review and Giveaway

So...?'s six brand new body mists [100ml, RRP £3.99] are available at Boots - where I believe they're also currently on offer and therefore should be purchased in bulk. Or, at least that's what I tell myself every time something I love is reduced. 

These fresh and easy to wear body mists range from deliciously fruity fragrances to the beautifully floral; each spritz awakening your senses and immersing you in a gorgeous little mist of triumph.

They're also insanely Instagrammable, so I do apologise for how photo heavy this post is likely to be, haha. Although really, I'm not that sorry at all, because their beauty needs to be shared with everyone in the world. Ever. #SozNotSoz

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - So...? Body Mist #SoMistHave Review and Giveaway

The six new fragrances available are:

- So...? Iced Melon
- So...? Pink Grapefruit
- So...? Musk
- So...? Vanilla
- So...? Sparkling Tea &
- So...? Rose Petals

I think my ultimate #SoMistHave from these new scents would have to be Rose Petals or Pink Grapefruit - though it's a very, very tough choice to make, as once again, they all smell so blimmin' lovely. 

Oh and btw, if you're interested in finding out why I love these scents so much, you should totes head to my Twitter, where I'm giving you the chance to win some for yourself! I've picked out my four ultimate #MistHaves and one of you lucky readers will win them for your very own. More details here.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - So...? Body Mist #SoMistHave Review and Giveaway

So...? Iced Melon*
This refreshing blend of juicy melon and cooling cucumber is summer perfection. The perfect handbag accessory for the warmer months! Reminds me of days in the park, fun afternoons in the local beer garden and beach days.

So...? Pink Grapefruit*
A tropical cocktail of zesty citrus, complemented by fruity notes of mango and passion. Bring with you on holiday & summer festivals for quick refreshes on the go. This scent is one of my favourites - it really does epitomise summer and reminds me of so many fun memories in the sun.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - So...? Body Mist #SoMistHave Review and Giveaway

So...? Musk*
Looking for a lux everyday scent? Say hello to So...? Musk. A sophisticated fragrance with notes of bergamot, sandalwood and powdery musk.This fragrance really reminds me of one of my friends and our nights out together - it's a very intriguing, almost comforting scent.

So...? Vanilla*
Be swept away by the sweet and dreamy notes of vanilla. This effortlessly classic fragrance is ideal for taking you from day to night. I love how sweet this scent is - it smells like all of my favourite candles, coffees and chocolates mixed into one. Super relaxing.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - So...? Body Mist #SoMistHave Review and Giveaway

So...? Rose Petals*
This delicate fragrance potion opens up with a bouquet of pink and white roses, before settling on a bed of lily of the valley. A floral delight from start to finish. I love floral scents - and this is no exception to the rule. A definite #MistHave.

So...? Sparkling Tea*
Invigorating green tea accords blend with zingy notes of bergamot and mandarin for a unique and refreshing scent. This fragrance smells just like my Gerard Cosmetics Setting Spray - it's very fresh and tangy, with a sweet kick; it reminds me of an Elizabeth Arden perfume I used to have. Very zen.

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - So...? Body Mist #SoMistHave Review and Giveaway

Once again, So...? have come up with a fab collection of scents that are easy to wear and affordable to pick up. If you fancy a slice of the action, you can pick up some #MistHave action from Boots or Superdrug - or of course, head to my Twitter page for your chance to win my absolute faves for yourself!

Qwerkity Gifts For Everyone*

I love shopping. Whether it's for myself or for others, I adore browsing online [or in store] to find quirky, unusual items that the recipient [alright, 9 times out of 10 the recipient is actually me, okay?] will love. 

As it's coming up to Mother's Day, the season of several back-to-back birthdays and with Father's Day lurking on the horizon [he's a nightmare to buy for!] the shopaholic within me knows that soon, her services will be required; in finding unusual yet reasonably priced gifts. But there's no need to stress - I've found a great online store to make all this kerfuffle a million times easier. 

Qwerkity offer unusual, practical and fun gifts for people of all ages; for children, teens, men, women, brothers and sisters, Mums, Dads and Grandparents. Oh, and for pets too! I feel there are a lot of boyfriends who would have totes benefited from knowing about this website over Valentine's - their website has sooooo many ideas when it comes to gifts for her. Oh well fellas - there's always next year!

Lovelaughslipstick Blog - Qwerkity Fun Unusual and Quirky Gifts Review


I've just spent a wild weekend fuelled by prosecco & photo booths - this fizzy beverage of joy fills a big place in my heart / memories [or lack of] and social life. So for me, and my girlies who equally enjoy a glass [or 6] of this magical stuff, this Boozy Bath Treats Prosecco Set is legit the perfect gift idea.

Super Convenient or Bit Of A Deviant? | Ciate's Mani Marker

It happened again, guys. I had a moment of weakness watching someone using a Ciate Mani Marker on Instagram and the next thing you know, I'd entered my credit card details and was pacing up and down waiting for the postman to arrive with one. 

When I see a new product which could help me achieve my goal of 100% laziness, I don't mess about. I'm stupidly impulsive sometimes, which is why I always lose on the Deal or No Deal machine; as I just jab answers on the screen without really thinking. 

But really though, a marker pen you're actually supposed to use to colour your nails in with? Which dries super fast and gives you a super precise way to apply your nail polish? Sod that messing about with pots of nail polish that always end up smeared across my face / duvet / life the next day, sign me up for some colouring action.

Lovelaughslipstick blog - Ciate Mani Marker Lady Luck Review

I ordered my Mani Marker from ASOS, where it was £7. Not too bad for a Ciate polish really - and to be honest, the stupid & impulsive side of me didn't really give two flying f*cks about how much it cost anyway. Which is why I have so much credit card debt. This shade is called Lady Luck. But did I strike it lucky with my latest, impulse buy? Was I going to be more Lady Luck or Lady And The Tramp?

Lovelaughslipstick blog - Ciate Mani Marker Lady Luck Review

Obv I love the packaging and branding of this product, and how it legit looks soooo much like some of the permanent markers I have in my stationary pot in the office. Job well done, Ciate. It pretty much behaves exactly the same as a marker pen, but just for beauty [barker for short?] purposes. 

First of all, I shook it about a bit to get the nail polish going. I also had a bit of a play around with the nib [ooh-err] in order to get the nail polish to seep through it [just like you'd do with a new marker pen, the first time you use it.] And I actually didn't spray nail polish anywhere on my person or belongings, which was pretty much unprecedented.

Lovelaughslipstick blog - Ciate Mani Marker Lady Luck Review

My only beef with this product [and maybe it's just me using it wrong, or maybe I've full on broke it or something?] is that despite how easy it is to apply and how insanely frigging fast it dries, it has the same issue that colouring in your nails with an actual marker pen does [don't tell me you didn't used to do this in school?!] - that it looks somewhat... patchy and scratchy. 

Ignore the general monstrosity that is my hands atm [dry skin city, population me] and take a look at this image - see what I mean about the graininess of the polish on the nail [and on the bit I missed and drew on my finger with, too lol?]

Lovelaughslipstick blog - Ciate Mani Marker Lady Luck Review

I'm really not sure on this one. Yes, the speed it dries at and the innovative idea behind its design & use is totes convenient. But at the same time, the unrelenting patchiness makes me label it as a bit of a deviant, too. Unless I'm just using it all wrong, in which case - someone please educate me before I end up throwing another £7 away in a fit of irrational rage?!

Have you tried any of Ciate's Mani Markers before? Am I doing something wrong, how did you get on with them? 
Oh and have any of you got any other lazy girl hacks I can try when it comes to my nails [other than paying a professional to do them for me, cos yeno, poor?]
