Lip Fusion Dupe-Lip Filler Express Gloss & Elegant Touch Nail Fortifying Spa

I had a Savers haul to stock up for my trip to Egypt.

Among the necessities were two impulse items. The first was Lip Filler Express Gloss, a Lip Fusion dupe. I have too many glosses but who cares for £1?

The packaging is similar to Lip Fusion and it's manufactured by Deborah Milano cosmetics. The gloss contains "hyaluronic filling spheres" which dilate by pushing towards the lip surface, hydrating and smoothes out the lips. It promises voluminous lips in 15 minutes.

The texture is similar Lip Fusion, thick and slightly sticky with a faint candy scent. As you can see in the pic, there is not much difference to size although my lips are shiner with less wrinkles. The gloss is shimmery which adds to the effect of plumper lips. There is a cooling tingle but it goes away after 15 mins. While it's ingredients differ to Lip Fusion, in my experience the results are exactly the same with a bargain price.

The second impulse buy is the Elegant Touch Fortifying Nail Spa for £2. My nails were ravaged when I had my gels removed. It was a shocking job. The manicurist did'nt leave the acetone on long enough and harshly scraped my nails. She wasn't even watching when she scratched my finger with the stick. Traces of gel remained but I was too scared to complain. Not going back to that Nails Inc (Debenhams Oxford St)!

The nail polish is a water based treatment with bamboo extract, avocado oil and sunflower seed oil. It's to regenerate weak and damaged nails with improved results in 3 days, so the packaging says. Leaves a translucent shiny finish and my nails feels stronger after two coats. I love it!
