Oooooooo come on baby make it hurt so good! Girls with Attitude LipZing has the zest and spice for making it hurt so good? Not sure if it’s good or not or maybe it’s “oh my god take me to the emergency room my lips feel like they are on fyreeeees!”
Girls With Attitude LipZing is an instant Plumping Gloss that’s a mere £5 so the Muse said “hey, something cheaper than Lip Venom! Let’s have a go!”
When I was deciding I’d have a go at LipZing I didn’t realize that the go might be me flying out my bathroom window and burying my lips and face into the nearest pile of cold snow! Ouchie this stuff stings!!
All the promises on the back of the box of achieving that Hollywood glamour lip look def does not make up for the fact that this stuff seriously tingles, stings and creates a rather uncomfortable feeling on my lips plus it’s freaking bitter as all hell if I happen to get a taste of it when licking my lips…well hello it’s on my lips I’m going to taste it sooner or later can’t we at least make it a pleasant experience when I do? K, thanks to the team at Girls with Attitude! And seriously if I’m going to burn my lips off when it’s applied can’t we at least make it a strawberry or watermelon type experience? Maybe the flavor will sooth the fire!
I really adore DuWop Lip Venom and although their are tears of absolute agony whenever my sister uses it I absolutely love it and never experienced the terribly stinging sensation she proclaims on and on about. Until now the only lip plumping gloss I’ve tried that worked is in fact lip venom but lord knows the award should go to LipZing! LipZing definately plumps no question about it! My lips were looking quite Amanda Lepore like…I was channeling my inner tranny girl with this stuff. I’m thinking that I can’t blame the formula so much as the irritation. Those crazy chicks with attitude probably created this so it would actually irritate the lip area and in turn that would cause all the swelling and plumping up! Hello hurtful!
My lower bottom lip was sticking out like it was in a permanent pout and hells knows I was loving the look but honestly the promise of a “gentle pleasant tingling sensation” (or so the box says) is NOT happening. Taking into consideration I’m not in the least sensitive this one is going on my do not buy again list.
If you’re dying to experience the pleasure pain of Girls with Attitude LipZing shop it at Asos. But don’t say I didn’t worn you!
The Muse thinks anything named Yu-Be and has been around for 50 years in Japan has to be awesome by default right?
One of Japan’s most trusted skincare lines in Japan, Yu-Be has been used for over 50 years. The idea of Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream is to address an entire slew of skin care problems. Parched Lips, ragged cuticles, cracked heels, and even diaper rash, Yu-Be has you covered. This gentle, glycerin-based formula is enriched with vitamin E, B2, and camphor to soothe even the driest and irritated of skin types.
Sounds like super balm right?
It’s actually quite awesome. It does exactly what it promises in aces. The formula is a thick, yellow cream that has a medicine, menthol smell that goes away quickly. The cream absorbs fairly quickly and does sooth extra dry skin however it is a tad bit on the greasy side which could be a deal breaker for some. Personally I didn’t mind the greasy feel since it did such an amazing job healing my dry skin which is much like skin on of an Elephant during the cold Winter months.
I generally liked the idea of such a multitasking moisturizing and have been tucking it into my purse to use on my cuticles during work hours as I’m one for picking at my nails until they bleed! Gross! This successfully softens the skin around my nails which causes me to be less obsessive about picking my hang nails.
It works great on my rough elbows and knees and particularly well at making and keeping my feet nice and smooth after a pedi!
Overall, it’s def on my list for repurchase when I run out! Really liked this one and Muse Approving it for purchase as it’s well worth checking out for anyone who suffers from dry, cracking skin in the Winter or anytime!

Shills Perfect Brightening Primer promises the world. Prime, Protect, correct, and refresh tiredness all in one step plus anti-aging ingredients too! Whoa.
That’s alot of talk….does it work?
Jump ahead to find out!
I’ve known love and I’m pretty sure that love is Shills Perfect Brightening Primer. Possibly the best primer I’ve run across in a very long time with darling packaging, a sweet price tag, and a pretty scent, this primer sure does please a Muse.
What it promises:
It claims that it will prime skin creating a perfection canvas for foundation application. It also promises to protect with anti-aging ingredients and also promises to correct by evening out and whitening skin tone. And finally it promises to refresh my tired skin!
Actually it seems to successfully do just about everything it promises.
What it does:
I don’t have super large pores as you may may already know from past primer reviews but I think I can say that Shills Perfect Brightening Primer is thick enough to do a fairly good job of filling pores and creating a nice smooth surface for your foundation. The formula is thick and creamy but manages to absorb easily into the skin. It’s a very pale pink shade that smells floral and fresh, almost rose-like. After moisturizing a tiny dab of this preps my skin beautifully and allows my foundation to smooth on easier. The product does whiten ever so slightly but nothing ghastly or unnatural just a hint of brightness that relieves tired, dull skin and breathes new life into it. My foundation lasts an extra 2-3 hours after use which is surprising considering this isn’t a silicon base.
I can’t decide what I loved best about this but some things I adored were the beautiful smell, the way it made my skin look bright and less dull, the great way it smooths on and offers extra moisture and eases my foundation on. I can’t speak for the anti-aging elements but hey all the better if it does protect my skin against aging.
The foundation comes in a cute pink squeeze bottle with a little faux diamond tacked onto to the top. It’s sadly not a lot of product inside the tube but since you only need a little it should last you quite a while.
I paid retail for this which was $239TWD, I’ve seen it on E-bay for nearly triple it’s retail price which makes me wince in agony. I do think it’s worth at least $15 USD but I really hate that it’s been jacked up so badly. It’s well worth trying out and it’s Muse Approved for purchase by yours truly!
Who might like it?
Anyone who needs a thick primer to fill in pores
Those who want their foundation to last longer
Anyone who’s skin needs a little pick me up to go from dull to pretty
Overall, Shills Perfect Brightening Primer definately promises a whole lot of everything and quite successfully delivers it all. I really liked this one and think it’s worth tracking down for yourself.
