Miners lip gloss exclusive!

Hello everyone, as you may know I am signed up to the database for Miners Cosmetics, so I receive any of their latest products and test it out for you all. On Thursday I got some of their new lipglosses in the post which was very exciting!

The range is called Cocktail Kiss Lipgloss and they are currently exclusive to Harrods but will be up for general launch in mid November. Its called Cocktail Kiss Lipgloss as they are based on some actual cocktail recipes.

This lipgloss is called Mudslide and as you can see in the photo it  contains lots of different  brown colours,  perfect for people with olive skin tones. I think this lipgloss is nice and comes out quite thick so only a smaller amount is needed for an even coverage. It smells like cocoa butter too!
This is based on the cocktail Mudslide. To make the cocktail mudslide you will need:
Mudslide;25ml Baileys
25ml Khalua/ Tia Maria
25ml Vodka
25ml Double Cream
Thick Chocolate Syrup

Place your serving glass in a freezer for a few minutes or so before hand to ensure it is cold enough to decorate. Swirl the chocolate syrup around the inside of the glass (like the effect in the lipgloss tube!) The pour in the Khalua or Tia Maria before filling the glass to the top with crushed ice. Pour in the cream, baileys and then finally the vodka. You could add some chocolate shavings on the top too. 

This Lipgloss is called Flirtini like the previous Lipgloss this one contains different  swirls of pink shades. Which I really like as it'll create a slightly different colour look everytime. I really liked this lipgloss as I think it worked with my fair skin tone well, provided an even coverage which could be used day or night and it was really sweet smelling as well.

Flirtini cocktail;
25ml raspberry vodka
15ml chambord
25ml cranberry juice
A squeeze of a lemon
50ml champagne

Pour all the ingredients  into a cocktail shaker apart from the champagne. Add ice to the shaker and shake well for twenty  seconds. Strain into a martini glass, making sure no broken ice gets into the glass, then finally top with the champagne and its ready to serve, enjoy!
This lipgloss is called Manhattan, similar to the lipgloss above yet is a darker pink colour . It has swirls of red, pinks, and  small bits of purple entwined into it giving it a great colour, and even coverage. Likewise to the other lipglosses this one I think smells really nice too, and tastes nice if like me you lick your lips whilst wearing lipgloss and swallow some ha!

To make the Miners Manhattan style cocktail you will need:

50ml whiskey
20ml Sweet vermouth
3 to 6 drops of bitters
1 maraschino cherry with the stem (optional)

Firstly pour the whiskey, vermouth and bitters into a mixing glass also filled with ice and stir gently without bruising the spirits, for approximately three minutes. Strain into a martini glass and drop the cherry in if you wish. enjoy!  
Hope you enjoyed my post!
