Brands I Want to Try!

I was going to do this post in January so I could look back and see what I’d tried and what I hadn’t, but I just couldn’t get the motivation to write it. We’re now well over half way through the year and the post is finally here. This post is going to contain brands that I haven’t tried anything from, but would really like to. I also thought this would be a nice change, from my usual lipstick reviews.

Lime Crime

I swear back in the day Lime Crime only did extremely bold and different choices of lipstick, but now they seem to have a wider choice of products and nudes. I see their liquid lipsticks all over Instagram and everyone seems to love them. It’s so hard to pick a favourite colour when all of them look so pretty. All of the liquid lipsticks cost £15 which isn’t that cheap.


This is a brand that I’ve never heard of, but after searching the new in section on Beauty Bay I was drawn to a number of their products. I have no idea if this is a new brand, but I’ve never seen their products before. Their products all seem really affordable, and I especially like the look of the Strobing Powder Glow For It! The packaging is similar to Benefit and The Balm where it has a retro feel, and the powder its self looks like a gorgeous pale gold. Everything they offer is really affordable too.


Hourglass is an extremely luxurious brand with a number of gorgeous products. Everything is stunning from the packaging to the product its self. It’s hard to pick a product to try specifically, as they all look great and I haven’t researched fully, so any recommendations would be great!


A brand that seems to be everywhere at the moment, I’m always seeing a product from these creep up here and there. So many of their products look stunning, and I’ve heard so many good things about them all!


I feel like I’ve been hearing about Zoeva for years, from the brushes to the palettes and it all sounds so good! I love the look of the Rose Gold brush collection, as who doesn’t want pink brushes? There are also a lot of palettes that I have heard about and would love to try.

Have you tried any of these brands? What brands do you want to try?

Thank you for reading!

    I tried a few Milani products over on my blog and the blushes are lovely, definitely worth trying out! I’ve never tried Hourglass either, quite simply because of the price tag but I’d love to… one day hopefully!

      I’ve heard so many good things about the blushers, thank you for the recommendation! That’s what puts me off, but it all looks so good!xx

    • 23rd July 2017 / 9:54 pm

      Ah I really want to try it, and thank you!xx

    I highly recommend the lime crime diamond crushers! I have the shade ‘Dope’ and it’s truly s t u n n i n g!
    But to be honest, I wouldn’t recommend that zoeva eye set- I have it and it was amazing for the first 4-5 months, but after washing and use they go very dry and harsh, they dont work great anymore and have lost their shape, I’ve had to buy all new morphe ones, which are much softer!

      I’ll have to add that one to my list, thank you for the recommendation! Really?! Thank you for that, as I really had my eye on it, and it costs a lot!xx

    I’ve tried Zoeva, Milani and Lime Crime. I love Zoeva brushes! The lime crime liquid lipsticks are great too but I prefer Kat Von D’s formula.

    Lime crime is one of my favourite brands for buying makeup from, the liquid lipstick formula is AMAZING like one of the best I’ve tried. Their highlighters are so good too x

    I haven’t heard of Misslyn before either but their products look so good! I want to try some more Milani too, the products I have from them are quite old now xx

    • 25th July 2017 / 10:28 am

      I hadn’t either, but they look good and they’re so affordable! Milani seems like they have some good products xx

    • 26th July 2017 / 9:52 am

      They really do, and I’m glad it isn’t just me that struggled haha! They look so pretty! Thank you, and you too!xx

      They really look it and sound it! They both sound like they have stunning products!xx

  12. 25th July 2017 / 4:20 pm

    I want to try Limecrime, Zoeva, and Hourglass as well. Unfortunately, Limecrime shipping fee is to expensive in my country while the other 2 brands have huge markups on their prices.

      Shipping is always the worst part, it can cost so much money! Hopefully they start selling it soon!xx

    • 26th July 2017 / 9:58 am

      I hadn’t either, but they have some really pretty looking products and they’re affordable too!xx

    Great post! I will go ahead and be your enabler by saying that you have to try Hourglass! Their powders are out of this world amazing; I have a bronzer, regular powder and also bought a blush recently. They are expensive but will last you ages! About Lime Crime though, I have heard they are non-FDA approved and were involved in a serious drama online (just google it), so I am not sure I would want to support the brand.

      Thank you! Ah, now I definitely want to try something, I will totally blame you if I do haha! Are you being serious?! I can’t believe I had no idea! Thank you for letting me know!xx

  14. 27th July 2017 / 2:17 pm

    I’ve also seen Miss Lyn on Beauty Bay and I always have a couple of their powder products in my cart but I never seem to buy them. I adore looking at Hourglasses products but I don’t think I’d ever be able to purchase anything from them due to the price!

      Glad it isn’t just me that has seen them! They are so expensive and definitely on the lust list haha!xx

  15. 27th July 2017 / 11:45 pm

    I’ve never heard of Misslyn before! You’re right, their packaging looks a lot like The Balm.

      I’m not sure if they’re a new brand or what, but they definitely seem worth a try! It’s definitely got that kind of vibe!xx

    I really want to try more Hourglass and Milani, I’ve tried a few staple bits from each and been very happy with them. I want the Milani 2-1 foundation, it’s meant to be amazing. I’m going to make it my mission to find my colour when I’m next in the US.

    • 4th August 2017 / 9:55 pm

      I’m glad you like the bits you’ve bought from those brands! It does sound like a great foundation, and good luck haha!xx

    I’ve been wanting to try Barry M and Zoeva too! I’ve heard so many amazing things about their stuff, but they don’t sell Barry M in the United States. Then with Zoeva, I just haven’t had the chance to make a purchase of their stuff yet! Hopefully you reach your wishlist too xxx

      Barry M is such a great brand, I hope you manage to get a hold of them soon! That’s exactly the same as with me, and thank you lovely, you too!xx
