Love Me Beauty : May 2015

Holy Moses. Prepare yourself for a bumper edition of Love Me Beauty, The May delivery is here and it’s a good un’. Thanks to lovely readers using my referral code, I had a lot of credits to use up this month, and I went a bit lip product crazy!



If you’re new to Love Me Beauty, where have you been? You get 6 ‘credits’ each month to spend as you wish on items in their boutique, items are usually one or two credits, and there’s a good mix of brands and products to try. This month I had 15 credits to spend, and my eyes lit up like it was Christmas knowing I could go a bit OTT!

I’ve had a few little problems with LMB this month, my credits didn’t manually refresh, twice which took a few days to sort out, and the delivery took a little longer than usual, so apologies that this is coming a bit late!


Lord & Berry 20100 Shiny Lip Crayon in ‘Mandarin’ (2 credits)


Lord and Berry seems to be a brand which is always available in beauty boxes, but up until this point I have avoided them completely (not through choice), I decided after my little MAC shopping where I purchased my first orange shade to pick up another (as I’m not completely convinced by it yet!).

Full Size £10.00

Lord & Berry Scuba Extreme Mascara ‘Black’ (2 credits)


I had a quick google of this, and it didn’t have particularly shining reviews online,  but decided to give it the benefit of the doubt anyway. I don’t currently have any waterproof mascara’s saved up in my stash, so thought this would be at least something to have just in case I decide to go swimming (never happens) and just need a quick slick of something!

Full Size £12.00

Mirenesse Mattfinity Lip Rouge in ‘Dubai’ (2 credits)


Not a brand that I have heard of before, but googling a couple of quick swatches reminded me a lot of the OFRA liquid lipstick I picked up last month and loved, so decided to give this a go as well. There were 3 beautiful shades to pick from, I decided to pick the one that was most summer friendly, and I think I’ll get a lot of wear from this shade. I love the packaging of this product too, it looks very glam, and love the big bold writing around the lid with the shade name, no wondering what this is called because the label has come off!

Sample Size worth around £7

Mirenesse iCurl Secret Weapon 24 Hr Mascara ‘Black’ (2 credits)


I haven’t bought a mascara since December, and I quite like that, my beauty boxes are keeping me well stocked! A very curl shaped wand, which is very different to products which I am currently using and loving, so thought it would be nice to try something different.

Sample Size worth around £7

Malin + Goetz Grapefruit Face Cleanser (1 credit)


I chose this in my first LMB box and really liked it, so decided to pick up another whilst it was back in the boutique!

Sample Size Equates Roughly £2.70

OFRA Long Lasting Lipstick in ‘Palm Beach’ and  ‘Laguna Beach’ (2 credits each)


OFRA products were first on my hit list to try and get this month, I received OFRA Santa Monica in last month’s box, and it is the best lip product I have ever tried. That’s a bold statement. The stuff just doesn’t wear away easily! They had 3 shades still on the site, and I picked 2 as I didn’t think the other shade would suit me very much. More from OFRA please love me beauty, I want to try more from this brand! This month if I had only got these two things, I would have been delighted.

Palm Beach bright pink, Laguna Beach Rose Nude.

 Full Size $19.90 each – Roughly £13.50 each

Nails Inc. Nail Polish in ‘Bruton Lane’ and ‘Lexington Gardens’ (1 credit each)


In general if you’re a regular reader you’ll know I’m not a massive lover of Nails Inc products, but I was running out of choices but this point, as I was a bit late choosing my options this month! I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt and pick up two shades which looked pretty for spring/summer – hopefully I’ll get on better with these than I usually do, I do like the shades, I just find they don’t last very long before chipping.

Lexington Gardens is the Peachy shade, Bruton Lane is the purple shade.

I think these a discontinued shades, roughly £7 each on eBay etc

      I know, Lucky me! I’m dreading the day when it goes back to 6 credits and people stop using it, there’s too much choice! xx
