      Watermelon balm, with a hint of pink shimmer.

      I have been aware of the Miss Sporty brand for ages, but I've never felt tempted to buy anything from the range until recently. I think I was a little put off by the branding, which I always felt was aimed more at young teenagers. The packaging is fairly basic, but colourful, there is nothing really noteworthy about it. The prices are all incredibly reasonable, so I thought I would give them a go. I had read a couple of reviews about their new lip balm, which is called 'Dr Balm', and people were saying it was a really nice little product. The balm retails at £1.99 and I got mine at Boots (the Boots website is currently displaying the wrong price). I think this is a fairly reasonable price for a lovely tinted lip balm. I got mine in shade 2, which looks like a bright pink in the bullet. The colour pay off isn't amazing, but you can definitely see the tint, and it leaves your lips looking slightly shimmery. This balm smells and tastes exactly like watermelon, so it is really lovely! The scent isn't at all overpowering, so that was a bonus. It doesn't feel greasy on the lips, and it really does feel moisturising. You don't need to reapply this balm too often. Another thing I like about this product is that it is shaped like a bullet, which I think makes it easier to apply compared to other brands. I would definitely recommend this!

      Miss Sporty I first came across the miss sporty range when I had just left primary school and I was just getting into wearing make up and how to look good, as we all know, lots change when you move to high school, I think it is a big step up! Miss sporty was the range that most people around that age would talk about the most. Miss sporty is a make-up range that is sold in many different health and beauty stores. I know for certain that it is sold in Superdrug. They do a range of different things; mascaras, eye-liners, lipsticks, lip glosses, concealers, nail varnishes and lots more. The reason why I say this hits the teenage market is probably because of two things. 1) The price of the make up is quite cheap so it is affordable for youngsters in the market. You can get a lip gloss for under £2.00 and Mascara's are around £3.00 when you usually pay for £6.00 odd for Rimmel! 2) Miss Sporty does not sound like it targets older women, it sounds young, free and energetic! The make-up itself has a cartoon logo! The actual quality of the products, I do not rate at all. I think the make-up would definitely be for those who have just started to wear it as they would not be bothered with false lash effect and curl power etc! The nail varnishes are absolutely shocking and some of the colours that they sell are just vile. The quality is very poor and you will find it chips off easily and it dries up easily!! So, basically Miss Sporty is probably aimed at the younger teenage girl market as they have a low price and lower quality goods. Because, if you compare these to Maybelline, they are equipped for a larger market as they have better looking products and ideas! In my personal experience with this brand, me and my sister used to use the nail varnish and I can honestly say, It wasn't just me that thought it was bad! Holly x

      I am not in a massive hurry to buy anymore of these products

      Well, I found the 'Miss Sporty' range a few years ago and it is not one of my favourite makes, but neither is it so poor that I'd never use. The range: Miss sporty is a range of many different cosmetic products, these can range from powders and foundations, to lip balms and nail varnishes. Their range is all very affordable and therefore this is one of the key selling points for the Miss sporty range. The price: All Miss Sporty products are under £3, some you may find for just 99p, some for £1.99, etc. This makes it one of the most affordable ranges on the market. I genuinley think that the price does reflect the product, but I guess we get what we pay for and in times of the 'credit crunch' I guess it is a handy little range to pick up cheaply. Avaliability: This make is for sale in most cosmetic shops, including Boots and Superdrug. Miss Sporty isn't a huge range, like Max Factor or Rimmel for instance but does hold your average make up neccesities (sorry, I am a poor speller) like mascara, eyeshadow, foundation and nail varnish. The range: There isn't much to say about the range, it is what it is. The foundations/powders come in 3 shades, light, medium, dark, the nail varnishes also don't boast a huge colour range and only has one shade for each colour. Packaging: The packaging is pretty basic, with nothing that stands out. Most items are either packages in plain dark blue, light blue or pink each reading 'Miss Sporty'. It looks cheap, but as I said for the price you are paying we cannot expect too much! My experience: I haven't bought too many products from this range, but from what I have tried I am not overly impressed. I have tried the pressed powder in the shade 'Medium', it comes with a little round sponge, but I don't use this anymore. This is because when I did you don't get an even coverage and were left with very unattractive orange marks on your face. I then used a blusher brush to apply and found that this picked up much finer amounts of the powder, so I used this, but I just found that the colour was very un-natural, and it didn't help they only came in 3 shades. I have also tried the mascara and really did not enjoy using this. It was a very thick and gloopy mascara and the brush was very big but with few bristles on it. I thought I'd give it a go anyway. When applying I just found that it made my eyelashes very thick and stuck them all together. It didn't curl my lashes, they looked, fat and short and left horrible mascara marks underneath my eye sockets. Also the problem with this is that it didn't seem it dry so I was also left with what I call the 'dotted pattern' underneath my eyes from blinking, however my eyes felt dry and itchy, like they had been irritated. I have also used the lipgloss which I found surprisingly very good. It wasn't thick and sticky, but left your lips coated in a lovely gloss. There wasn't a huge range of colours to choose from, a clear one, some peachy tones and some pink ones. I chose the clear as I thought it would go with everything. I really liked this product and as it was at such a bargain price, I have bought it again since. My experience has been really mixed with these products, and I am still not that keen on these products, but if you are a bit strapped for cash, I suppose they are ok, but I am not going to be buying all my make up from here any time soon.

      I love this products

      Believe it or not I am come from a land far away where this brand was not low-cost compared with other local cosmetics. That was about 8 years ago. In UK this band has probably the cheapest products you can buy. Is easily found at any Superdrug. So I am pretty familiar with their products. Over the years I tried pretty much everything Miss Sporty made plus a whole lot of other cosmetics even big brand names and all I can say that yes is very much comparable in quality. About a year ago I switched to completely natural organic cosmetics but I still hold some respect for this company because I know it makes good quality products. All I can say that the cosmetics marked out there is full of chemicals and so is Miss Spory but do yourself a favour and don't waste your money on others as there is no extra gain really. I used to love their foundations, powders, cover sticks and even they nail polish- huge selection and they even make black one, oh and you got to try the mascaras as they are incredibly good for the price. And yes pretty much all they make is good prices range from £1 to probably £3 the maximum per products and they offer really good coverage what more can you ask? All I can say I never got a skin rash or eye infection or God knows what else from using their products, so I am one happy customer. I still buy a few items sometimes when I got to Superdrug. The natural organic cosmetics I use are far more expensive and sometimes when I go for a night out and I need a particular eye shadow or lipstick to go with my outfit so I buy Miss Sporty.

      Miss Sporty is a make-up range aimed mainly at teenagers, available from Superdrug. The prices are very cheap - nothing is over £2 and COTY, if I remembered correctly made products for Maybelline, which I use a lot of, so I thought I'd have a look. There are lipsticks, eyeshadows, eye-glosses, concealers and eye pencils, which are all relatively cheap. The packaging is simple - a translucent blue case with white letters. If you don't mind how it looks in your make-up bag then this shouldn't really be a problem, but if you like cute packaging then you'll be disappointed! Here are the products I tried: Lipsticks: There are a wide range of colours and glided on smoothly, lasted me a good few hours but the case wasn't hard wearing and broke quite quickly. Eyeliners: Again, lots of different colour choices. The pencils have a bit of slip to them so it doesn't drag your skin but it isn't greasy either. Lasted me an hour at the most, without rubbing or any crying! They're quite good but the lasting power lets it down. Concealer: Very basic. Comes in an ugly white tube in a lipstick format and there are only three shades to choose from. Very hard to blend in, looked unnatural, so save your money. Eyegloss: These were very easy to apply and were very glossy and gave lots of shine but creased after a while. Looked good while it lasted though! If you're counting the pennies but want at least a bit of quality then Miss Sporty is for you. It's not a bad range, I've seen worse, but for me I'm sticking with Maybelline!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Now, as some of you may know, I am only young, which means I have to survive on pocket money. That's why I use the Miss Sporty make-up range, which can be found on make-up counters at Superdrugs stores. Each item is under £2, which is great if you, like me, are on a budget. The Miss Sporty range contains: mascara (£1.99), face powder (1.99), blusher (1.99), eyegloss (1.59), lipgloss (1.49), nail varnish (1.29), eyeshadow (1.29), and concealer. So far, the products in the Miss Sporty range which I have tried are: MASCARA - I am a big fan of the Miss Sporty mascaras. I have used the xxvolume and xxlong mascaras from the range, and I have been really pleased with the results. The xxvolume mascara thickens your lashes, making them look fuller. The xxlong mascara makes lashes noticably longer and also seperates them for a no-clump look. Both mascaras are available in black and cocoa (dark brown). EYESHADOW - These are available in a wide range of shades from blues to pinks to browns. They are small, circular pots filled with long-lasting, silky smooth eyeshadow. NAIL VARNISH - Again, these are available in a wide range of colours. The bottle says they are long lasting, but I find they chip after a day or two. Miss Sporty nail varnishes are also available in quick-dry. EYEGLOSS - This is quite a popular product among my friends and other Dooyoo members who have written an opinion on this product, and I agree that they look nice ahile they last, but by the end of the day, they crease and fade. They come in the same size and shaped pots as the lipgloss and eyeshadow. -The Miss Sporty packaging is quite simple - white writing on a royal blue background. -The Miss Sporty range of make-up is made by Coty, who also make Maybeline products. Overall, the Miss Sporty products are good for those who want cheap makeup, so they are good for teens or those who are experimenting with make up. People who want long-lasting, high quality make-up, however, may want to try another brand, but I would reccommend the xxlong mascara to anyone, as it is really effective.

          Miss Sporty is a range of make-up by Superdrug. There are loads of products to choose from and they are all at a reasonable price. Most items you'll find on offer from time to time. Miss Sporty do everything from Eye Gloss to Blusher. Most of the different things come in a range of colours as well. There are some listed below. Eye Gloss; This is really cheap at only £1.29 per small pot. There are three colours to choose from, Lavender, Blue and Gold. The great thing is they last all day so you won't have to keep replacing it. Eye Shadow; Although this isn't as good as the eye gloss it still works well. It doesn't stay on quite so well but o average you will only need to replace it once or twice a day. The price is the same but there is a wider range of colours to choose from. Mascara; There are two colours of mascara to choose from, black and brown. But they are really good and work well. The mascara is waterproof so if you get a bit wet you wont end up looking like a panda! The brush is excellent; it curls your lashes and leaves them looking wonderful. Miss Sporty is a really good range; there are loads of products and colours to choose from. They last a long time as well. the blusher covers marks and spots on your face leaving you looking spotless! It is also easy to put on, the eyeshdows for example are rounded so you can use your finger. Miss Sporty goods are great for those with sensitive skin, mine is sensitive and it doesn’t make it come out in rashes or anything, it cares for your skin, which makes it worth buying. But some of the products don’t always work as well as you expect them to, but they’re cheap so it doesn’t really matter! These are great products and are all at a reasonable price. I love using this make-up and it always works on my skin. Have a go, you might like it.

            This range of make-up is extremly cheap, every item is under £2. Considering the price range the quality is extremly good. It is manufactured by COTY, who I am fairly sure manufacture Mabelline products aswell. Personally I love their eye glosses, they stay on for ages and come in three colours, blue, gold and purple. They look really nice in the evening, at night and are also fine in the day, as long as you don't over do it. I don't own any of their eyeshadows, but the testers are quite silky and feel as if they wouldn't crease. I have two of their lipsticks, which are slightly glossy and stay on for ages. I also have one waterproof mascara and a black pencil eyeliner, both of which do their job perfectly. I also had a cover up stick, which I found didn't blend in very well, so I gave it to my cousin. This range is probably designed for teenagers, hence the pocket money prices, but I think it's great for all (especailly those on a low budget). They also have great offers on their products. Currently a lot of them are reduced in price, I got a free lipstick once when I bought my mascara (for £1.99) and their lipsticks have also been reduced to 99p in the past. Althought they have a great range of products (some of which I havn't mentioned are tinted lip glosses, lip liners, nail varnishes, blusher...) I would complain that they didn't have many 'nice' coloured eye shadows, as they all used to be really natural (green and brown), which I (personally) wouldn't like to wear all the time. But I think they are currently addressing this problem as recently there have been some lighter shades of green, blue and purple on the Miss Sporty shelves. I would also like to add the simple fact that none of their pot lip/eye glosses or eye shadows come with applicators, which is a shame and the packaging is a bit plain. I said they don't have many shades of Eye shadow, but they have loads of lipstick shades - one for everyone! Currently they have no scented products, which I hope they change soon. I think this is a brilliant brand, even for those of you that prefer expensive make-up it can't hurt to look.
