My first Facebook giveaway!

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 5 - 2010

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuudes!

Want the chance to win some PURE goodies before they become insanely hard to pin down?

I scrambled for the stand at my local Boots and literally grabbed the last few pieces I could see, and here they are!

~ Pure Nail Varnish in Bright Blue (swatch here)
~ Pure Kajal in Sophisticated Brown (love these!)
~ Pure Lipgloss in Fuschia Red (sparkly!)

To be in with a chance to win, simply become a facebook fan of Lipglossiping (not me, the site!).

I’ll select a winner at random from all you fannies (that will be funnier if you’re British) on the 25th April.  Open to my lovely international readers as always.

Roll up! Roll up!

P.S. – I know that some of you would rather stick hot pins in your eyes than sign up on facebook, so if you wanna join in the fun but are allergic to the “book of faces”, drop me an email with the subject “PURE GIVEAWAY” (and a few lines of text to get past my spam filter) and I’ll make sure you’re entered too!


Pure – Bright Blue NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 23 - 2010

I picked this up from the clearance shelves in Boots a couple of weeks ago for around £1.60.  Bright Blue is a super smarties shade, a proper bright blue cream.  Coverage was fab, I was done in two easy to apply coats.  I think it looks a little bit chalky but I am a fan of the shade.

Have you ever tried any Pure polishes? It’s a shame the brand is being discontinued, have a look in your local boots for any remaining stock – I love their Kajal liners too!

Pure by Carlo di Roma Eyeshadow Duos – Review

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 28 - 2009

PURE are a brand I know very little about although I’ve spied the mostly black packaging a few times whilst browsing in Boots.

The first products I noticed by the brand were the Kajal sticks, and I was tempted!  But to be honest, as an unknown quantity… I was loathe to part with any money ’till I’d read a bit more about the brand.

Well, of course that never happened… there’s simply too much makeup in the world worthy of spending my hard-earned cash on and something else equally tempting must have slipped into my line of vision and any thoughts of PURE were promptly dropped.

That is, until I was browsing the Debenhams website last week.

PURE was on sale (at 50% off the RRP) and I saw some eyeshadow duos that I liked the look of…

Pretty!

The packaging is sleek, compact and functional… it’s solidly built and nice to use.

I bought: Freedom, Nude Gold and Havana. (L-R)  I paid £4.25 each.

Nude Gold and Havana look somewhat simillar no?

Clockwise from TopLeft – Freedom, Nude Gold, Havana.

Nude Gold looks a little washed out in my swatch, but it’s equally as vibrant as Havana and Freedom.

I’m really pleased with my purchases, the shadows are smooth, well pigmented and contain a beautiful amount of shimmer without being too sparkly.

They last well without a base and blend easily.  There’s not much more you’d want is there?

My only disappointment is the shade selection, I think I’ve already bought all the ones I’d be interested in bar one – the others look pretty samey or just plain odd.

I’ll be much more willing to try the rest of the brand now though!

Are you a PURE fan?  What have you tried?  What do you want to try?
