Currently Loving #1

So I wanted to start a new series - Currently Loving - mainly because there are usually a few products that I really like and I always forget to do a monthly favourites so they never get mentioned. So let's get started!

First up is my new obsession and it's this beautiful Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in the shade Black Cherry. As autumn was creeping in, I was craving a wearable dark lipstick and after some research I knew that Black Cherry was for me. And oh boy, I have not been disappointed with is baby! I've worn it all week long! At first I applied it very sheerly then throughout the week I built it up and wore it a bit bolder everyday. I've been getting so many compliments on this all week - I don't know when I'm gonna stop wearing this! I'm basically going to be rocking this lip colour all winter ;)

I've fallen in love with the UD Naked Palette again! This is seriously the only palette that I can use day in and day out. At first I was feeling a bit guilty that I haven't really been using this palette as much lately because I've hardly been wearing eyeshadows at all! But recently I've been experimenting again with eyeshadow and love the natural and dramatic looks that you can create with this palette. I swatched the ones I use the most.

Removing your make up at the end of the day is not something that I'm very consistent or good at. So I like products that get the job done quickly and effectively. That is why I have only been using L'oreal Skin Perfection Cleansing Oil to remove my makeup at the end of the day. This even gets rid of waterproof mascara so all I do is pump a couple pumps in my palms and then starting with my eyes I just massage this all over my face and ooh.. it quite relaxing.

I think toners are a great way to get rid of the final makeup residue left on your face after cleansing and also to just refresh your face during the day if your not wearing any makeup. I use No7 Gentle Toner and really have been liking it. Unlike other toners that I have used in the past, this doesn't dry or give my skin that uncomfortable tight feeling. It is truly a 'gentle' toner!

That's it for now! 
What have you been loving?

Boots, Superdrugs, Essence Make up Haul

So recently I was on a spending ban form August till the end of September, which was quite successful. However, at end of the ban I couldn't bring myself to buy anything so it took a good one month for me to splurge even after the ban ended. The first place I went to was Boots. Luckily, both Boots and Superdrugs had 3 for 2 across all makeup so I picked up Rimmel's Provocalips Lip Colour(£6.99) in the shade Make Your Move. I hadn't really heard of these before so I was pleasantly surprised by how long this lasts. Next, I got Sleek Matte Me(£4.99) in Fandango Purple - this was the main reason why I went to Boots. I have been wanting to try this for such a long time and I wasn't disappointed by it! Most of the stuff that I wanted were out of stock so I really annoyed, I couldn't really find a 3rd thing to complete my 3 for 2 so I just went with Soap & Glory 's SuperCat Eyeliner(£6) because I know that it will get used and it's just handy to have felt eyeliners at the ready.
From Superdrugs there wasn't anything particular that I wanted expect Revlon Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry(£7.49) (which I'm soo excited about>.<) and Maybelline Fit Me Concealer(£5.99). I noticed these MUA Pro-Base Prime and Conceal Palette and Powder and I knew I had to try it because it looks so interesting and plus at the price of £4 each it wasn't a big risk.

Then I dropped by Essence because I was close by Wilkos. I need a new mascara I decided to try their Get Big Lashes Mascara(£2.30). They have a ton of different masacaras so I was a bit overwhelmed by the choices. After seeing a review, I really wanted to try their Matt Effect Lipgloss(£2.30) - I got the shade Velvet Rose which is a light pink colour. Then I picked up the I Heart Stage Eyeshadow Primer(£2.50) because I've been wearing eyeshadow more often so I've been hunting for new eyeshadow primers. Lastly, I got the Eyeliner Pen Waterproof(£2.80) mainly because it was really cheap and I really want to compare this to the S&G's SuperCat Eyeliner. Plus it said it was waterproof which caught my eye.

That's all from my haul! 
Tell me what you have recently bought?

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Liner by Kate Emerald Review*

My favourite type of eyeliner has to be gel because I feel it lasts the longer, and is easier to apply. I've stuck to the usual black colour but I've really been wanting to experiment with other colours. This dark green is a perfect way to begin trying other colour gel liners.
That fact it's a dark green colour means that you could wear this as an everyday eyeliner. I've been wearing this quite often recently. Usually when you mess up with a black eyeliner it's quite obvious but I think you can get away with this if you accidentally  rub your eye (i do that quite a lot -_- ) 
Packaging wise it's pretty simple, it comes in a small transparent pot with a black lid. The container is plastic which feels a bit cheap but on the plus side it's quite light. The brush that comes with it is usable but I prefer to use my real techniques eyeliner brush instead.
The application is very smooth and it dries fairly quick. It's pigmented but when applying there may have to go over some areas again.
When I initially looked at the colour I thought it was a standard emerald green colour but when you look closer you can see small tiny little sparkles. I hope you can see from the swatches above the shimmers I'm talking about. I think it makes the eyeliner so much more special. Dark green eyeliner like this tend to look too dark and matte but I think the shimmers make the emerald green really shine through even though it's dark.
Rimmel products are really impressing me lately, can't wait to try more stuff from them!

Have you tried this eyeliner? What's your favourite Rimmed product?

The Body Shop Skincare Haul

So recently The Body Shop had £25 off £50 which I made immediate use of. I've been craving a clay/mud mask for the last few months. My skins has been feeling so congested and no amount scrubs have worked on it. So thought now was the best time to get some masks.

The main reason I placed this order was because of the Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask. I've had this before so this was repurchase for me. The next mask that I got caught my eye - it's the Blue Corn 3-in-1 Deep Cleansing Mask. I have never seen this before on the body shop website so I assume it's new. I super excited to try this one, high hopes from what I read from the reviews on the site. My battle with spots continues on, will I ever be spot free? :'( ...someday but in the meantime I thought the Tea Tree face mask may be good in clearing my skin. Last of the masks is a Honey & Oat 3-in-1 scrub mask. I usually make homemade oat masks but my sister always complains that I make too much of a mess so I thought I might as well pick this up to save myself from the hassle of making one myself.

The last 2 things that I picked up were the Vitamin E Overnight Serum in Oil and Tea Tree oil. I have really been liking oils compared to night creams and day creams so I thought I'd see how I like the vitamin e oil . First thing that I noticed is that it smells really good! It smells sooo nice - can't wait to smother my face in this.

Did you make use of this offer too? What did you get?

OPI Muppets Collection Lacquer- Int'l Crime Casper Nail Polish*

Recently I've been trying to grow my nails and that usually means not experimenting with nail polishes....ahh sad times. So while my nails have been growing I decided to stick to one nail polish only.

For the past few weeks I've been wearing OPI's Int'l Crime Casper nail polish* on my nails. It's a very sheer colour but it is buildable which I quite like. I like to put 3 thin layers because I think that gives me the right amount of colour on my nails. I'm not big fan of iridescent nail colours but the colour has grown on me. It has a pinky base colour. In the right lightening, you can see tiny blue and purple glitters. I often just look at my nails in class when my teachers drone on. My nails are so distracting -_- 

This lasted on my nails for about a week before I saw any chipping which I think is pretty good. You could apply this on top of other nail polishes too but I just like to use this as it is.

You can check this out here (just realised it's 10% right now :O )

What's on your nails right now?

Nail of the Day #3

It's been forever since I have done a Nail of the Day, nearly a year I think! I used to be into nail art so much but I just gave up on it for the last few months and now I'm back on it again. I recently ordered some acrylic nail paint and nail art brushes from Ebay which I have been experimenting with.

I wanted to make a nail art tutorial but honestly I didn't know myself what I was doing when I doing it. It was a spontaneous idea but next time I will plan before hand and hopefully post some tutorials. Let me know if you would like to see some nail art tutorials or not.

I applied my Barry M's 3 in 1 clear nail polish as a base coat. Then used some blue paint to cover my nail tips because they have been looking awful lately. On my thumb, I wanted to try a flower art because it was the biggest nail so I had the most surface area. My index and middle fingers are supposed to be branches with flowers...if you have guessed already. After that I honestly didn't know what to do, I attempted to make it look like the flowers have been blown away on to the sea. The nails looked a bit empty so I added some birds...yes they're supposed to be bird, even though they don't look like it.  

Practice makes perfect so hopefully I get better with time.

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Comfort Clear* Review

Lip balms for me are a must have. It's that one thing you can be sure I always have in my bag. You never know when your lips may feel dry and chapped. Now I think there are 3 different categories of lip balms . For example, those really cheap lip balm that we buy only because they smell or look nice but give zero moisture. Then there are those lip balms that are hydrating when you apply it but doesn't really do much for your lips. The third category is the lip balms that actually moisturise your lips.

Today, I have one of current favourite lip balms which is the Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm* in Comfort Clear. This easily falls in to the third category. This is a clear lip balm and it applies really smooth on the lips. I have been using this for the last few weeks and I didn't really realise how much I liked it until I lost this for a couple of days and had to use my other lip balms. There is a very obvious difference between this and lets say Maybelline's Baby Lips in Hydrate. I felt like with that I had to reapply it every other hour or so. Whereas this one I'm good for about 4-6 hours. (though I sometimes apply it more often because I like the smell of it ^^ ) The smell is a sweet smell which isn't too strong or sickly. Another thing I have noticed is that I don't have to smother my lips with lip balm with this; going over the lips once or twice is enough. Packaging wise, it's simple, cute and most importantly the lid stays on even if you chuck it in your bag. When you first get it the lip balm is flat and after using it a couple of times the edges become rounded like in the picture above. 

As the weather starts to cool, dry skin kicks in and I think this would be perfect for this winter. I have been using this for nearly 3 weeks and I have used about one fifth of the product. So one of this will definitely last you a winter. This is also available in different colours too, if you prefer some colour out of your lip balm.

 You can buy this and check out the other colours here!(I have my eye on coral crush)

What's your favourite lip balm? What colour would you like to buy of these lip balms?

ELF Cosmetics Haul

So I recently placed my first order at ELF. They had a 50% off so I thought now is the perfect time to order. One bit of warning, once you start browsing through the website somehow magically your basket will be over £60. There is so much and at such low prices (even better with 50% off) that it's hard not to basically add anything and everything! I (somehow miraculously) managed to part with only £18.80. I got 10 items which came up to under £40 and then with the 50% off it came down to under £20. Which means that each product cost an average of £1.88! That's pretty good!

I tried to stay away from the blushers and lipsticks because I know that might get out of hand. The main thing that I wanted to try out was lip liners and a couple of the matte lip colours. Most of the lip liners were out of stock so I quicked added the ones available. I was very intrigued by the HD Powder in Yellow shade so I thought I might give that a try. I've recently been really into brows so I got the brow kit too. Which I must say I love the packaging of! I also tried to keep away from buying any brushes buy I ended up getting the Studio Small Stipple Brush because my friend recommended it. Lastly, I really wanted to try out the cream eyeliners because they had such great colours. I had like 5 in my basket but just ended up getting the shade copper which is a nice ....coppery shade :) So far I'm quite impressed with the cream eyeliner, it's really creamy and soft and still quite long lasting.  Keep an eye out for my reviews on some of these product coming soon!

Did you buy anything from Elf during their sale recently?

Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Subra* Review

I was sent recently a couple of goodies by the lovely Eve from The Hut Group to try out. One of them was this Nars Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow*. When I first opened this I was very intrigued because this isn't like the normal Nars single eyeshadows. After quick search on the internet, I realised these are fairly new. The dual-intensity range of eyeshadows were released just last month

First of I love the packaging! It's so small and cute. It has a magnetic closure and feels very sturdy. This is great to take with you in your make up bag as it hardly takes any space. 

Colour wise it's quite hard to describe exactly what colour this is because it's different in different conditions. As you can see from the swatches that when applied wet/damp the colour is more intense. The colour also varies under different lighting. In the pan it looks dark purple. In natural light, when applied, it looks dark plumy colour with a hint of brown. However, under lights and flash it looks dark brown. 

To test this I did the eye look above and I was very pleased with how it looked considering I only used two colours. This colour is great for smudging the lower lash line and for blending into the crease.  I was quite excited to know that this can be used dry and wet so to try it wet I damped my Real Technique's accent brush and used it to pick up the product. The application was really smooth and I didn't have to go over it many times as it was very pigmented. Not gonna lie but this is better than some gel eyeliners I use. It lasted 9 hours and it looked exactly like how it did in the morning!

These cost £21 a pop eeeh! Pretty pricey, I know considering a normal Nars single eyeshadow cost £18 and you get 2.2 grams of product where as this you only get 1.5grams. BUT...I think the price is justifiable due to it's very unique colour and the fact it can be used dry and wet. You get more use out of the shadow for your money. 

These are going to be available in 12 different colours on the 15th (this Friday). In the meantime, why not check out the rest of the Nars range here! Make sure you're following me on Twitter so I can give you a heads up when they are available :) 
UPDATE: You can now buy them here!  

What colour would you want to get in this eyeshadow?

Essence Haul - 3 for 2

So yesterday, I popped into good old Wilkos to try some new Essence cosmetics. Luckily they had a 3 for 2 so I naturally bought 3 items. There was so much more that I wanted to try I had to resist the urge of buying the whole stand. :D

The first thing I reached for was their blushes. I've heard so much about them and I really wanted to try them out myself. I picked up the shade Secret It-Girl. which is a pretty orange shade with a hint of glitter. This looked perfect for the summer so I thought I might as well get this whilst there is some summer left. 

The next shade I got is Adorable . This is a more wearable everyday kind of shade. I reach quite often for these kind of blushes when in a rush because it's more subtle then brighter blushes so it's great for when you want to just smack on some blush without being so precise with it. 

I didn't just wanted to get blushes so I thought I might try their lipsticks too. They had quite a good variety of colours. Sadly the colour that I liked was out of stock so I pick this one up in the shade On the Catwalk! I wasn't too sure about the colour but when I put it on, I just loved it. It's such a wearable red. It's the type of red that even if you apply it full on, it gives your lips a red cherry-kissed look rather than an 'in-yo-face' kind of red lip look. 

The blushes were £2.50 and the lipstick was £2.30, with 3 for 2 I bought all three products for just a fiver. Now that's what I call a good deal!

What would you recommend I try from Essence next?

Empties #1

I never keep a track of what I use and if I liked it or not so I thought I should start an empties series so I can share with you guys what I thought of some of the products that I have used up.

First up is Essence I ♥ Extreme mascara (I did a review on this here). I really like this mascara and it was great for the price but it did dry up a bit too soon. Will I repurchase it? Yup!
Next we have another mascara, Rimmel's Scandaleyes which I didn't realise that I still had. I hardly used this mascara mainly because I hated it so much. The consistency was too wet for my likings and the brush was huge. I'm surprised that some people actually liked this mascara but eh what can I say, each to their own. Will I repurchase it? Hell no!
I was going through my foundations and I found this little guy - Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation.  I don't think I used this foundation enough, not because I didn't like it but because it was a bit too dark for me. I bought this during the winter but now I think the shade would have matched me quite well as I'm a bit tanned. I gave this to my sister and she seemed to have enjoyed it and definitely recommends it. Will I repurchase it? Maybe...
This perfume, Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire, is the love of my life! That's a bit over dramatic I know! ^.^ But I really just love the smell of this. It's one of those scents that you that you keep on wanting to sniff. I was nearly in tears when I finished this but luckily I already have a back up of this. The scent is very strong and mysterious. I think I'll bust out this perfume again after summer because I think I need something lighter in the summer. The bottle's so pretty I don't want to throw it away (>.<) Will I repurchase it? Yes, yes...did I mention YES! 
Last thing is Topshop Magic Liner, which I bought because of reviews I read online. The reviews I read all seemed to LOVE this so naturally I was expecting a miracle product. I did really like this when I first got it but after a while it just seemed like a normal eyeliner pen. It's not completely dried out but the lines it makes are not as black and smooth as it used to be so I have no use for this anymore. Will I repurchase it? Probably not because I want to explore different brand eyeliner pens.

What have you recently finished using?

Drawing Essiebutton

So yesterday I felt a bit creative and decided to draw one of my favourite youtuber and blogger Essiebutton aka Estée. I decided to challenge myself and only use my makeup to draw(..and a pencil and a bit of tipex). This was the first time I have ever drawn like this and it was so much fun. It's not as gorgeous as the real Estée but I'm quite pleased with how it came out, considering it was my first time.
Maybelline Gel Eyeliner
Sleek Ultra Matte Vs 2 palette
 MUA Undress Me Too palette

Revlon ColourBurst Lacquer in Enticing

 Sleek Face Form palette
Natutal Collection Blush in Pink Clouds
MUA Highlighter

So what do you think of drawing with makeup?

Boots Haul

Ahh...Boots it's one of those places that you can never resist popping in when you see one. Here is what I have picked up this last week or so. 

I have previously reviewed L'oreal Paris GlamShine Stain Splash in the colour Princess before, which I really adored so I was eager to try some more shade. I originally wanted to get only one but eh what can I say?...I blame the 3 for 2 offer. I got the shades Lolita (a nude shade), Romy (a rosy shade) and Eve (a cool-tone pink with a hint of purple). I was just searching this afternoon and I realised that there is this shade called Milady which looks absolutely lovely. It looks like a perfect Autumn/Winter colour. So that is definitely on my to-buy list. I also picked up L'oreal La Touche Magique True Match Concealer mainly because it's handy to have these kind of twisty concealer pens here and there. 

I have been a bit lip obsessed recently hence I have been wearing a lot more lip products and buying a lot more. I have heard some positive reviews about Natural Collection's Moisture Shine Lipsticks so I thought why not give it a go. I got the shades Raspberry, Cranberry and Crimson. My favourite shade so far is Raspberry. I'm not sure why they called these "Moisture Shine" because they are not really moisturising. I really don't like the packaging, it's just so plain, and it doesn't feel secure but the product itself is lovely.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who can't commit to just one face wash. I need to have at least 3 to choose from because my skin doesn't feel the same everyday so I choose the type of face wash according to how I feel. I must admit I mainly bought this because it said charcoal on it. I've only used this once it is quite different to how I thought it will be. I'll keep you updated on it when I make up my mind on this. The last thing I bought was Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo The Sleek Restorer. My hair is really dry and frizzy so I thought this may help with that. This smells AMAZING! Coconut oil and Cocoa Butter what a great mix. If you like Mocha Coconut Frappuccino from Starbucks then you'll like this too.

What have you been buying recently?

Glamour Mag Freebie - Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner Review

Here's a quick post to let you know of this months freebie with Glamour's magazine. This month's Glamour magazine (£2) comes with Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner. You can get it in Black and Blue. I was hoping to pick up the one with the blue one but sadly there were none of them left. The Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner retails for £12 usually.

I'm not much of a magazine person so I mainly bought this for the eyeliner. £2 for a liquid eyeliner is a pretty good deal in anyone's book. The packaging is pretty standard. The tip is like a smooth felt tip with is what I really like with liquid liners. So far so good, however when I tried this out to do a cat flick it was just horrible. It's streaky and dry and just not good. Even though it was only £2, I still feel a bit annoyed that I paid for this. After a great deal of effort, I finally managed to my eyeliner. The colour is really black, it's smudge proof and stays put for so long. Which made me even more annoyed because the formula is actually really good but the application is just dry and bad. I'm not sure if just my one is like this or it's the same with everyones. I'm going to store it upside down for a while and let gravity do it's work and see if that makes any difference.  

Does your one seem dry and streaky too?

HUGE Post Exam Haul

Exams are over!! Woot woot! Expectation : Time to Partay!! Reality: Sleeps for 3 days straight -_-
So recently my AS level exams finished (last Friday 6th to be specific) and I was just so relieved it was finally over. After a month of exams, I am exhausted and I needed some retail therapy to bring me back to life. This is what I bought leading up to the end of my exams and after my exams. I kinda went all out because I just needed an excuse to spend. /hehe/

Real Technique Brushes
One of the first things I bought were these Real Technique brushes. They were so cheap that I had to buy ALL the brushes that I wanted in one go. The eye set and the travel set were just £10!! Yes! £10! The Core collection was only £11. They retail for normally at £21.99 at Boots so this half price and the eye and the travel set is better than 50% off. I randomly came across Gordon's Direct - which is where I bought them. I just checked and they are still on offer so definitely pick them up now because they're the cheapest I have seen EVER!

1. Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate
I have let go of my skincare this past month because of exams. I wasn't motivated to look after my skin and after a month I must say my skin has become so horrible that I knew I had to step up my game and treat my skin with proper skincare. To kind of motivate me to kick start my skincare regime again I decided to pick up Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate. I have been wanting this for so long - ever since I read the first review about it. People seem to love and I want to try it out for myself. I'm excited to see the results. This was £36 (ouch) but products like these last for a really long time which made it more justifiable to buy.

2. Benefits Hot 2 Trot
Now this was something that I bought during exams. This must be the most impulsive buy I ever had. Instead of revising, I was on Debenhams website and wasted 3 hours on there and when I realised how much time I wasted I felt guilty so I felt like I had to buy something to make the 3 hours worth the time. So I randomly picked this mainly because it had a mini Cha Cha tint which I had been wanting to try and also it was 20% off. When I received it I was even more guilty because I really didn't need this >.< But lesson learnt - won't do it again. As for the blush and Cha Cha Tint, I think are really nice but haven't used it much so I haven't made my mind up completely.

4. St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Skin
I love this scrub, this is a repurchase for me. I used to use this a lot back in the days but I never bought it since because I have been trying out other scrubs. I'm glad to have this again. I love the feeling after scrubbing my face with this. Squeaky clean!

6. Eylure Individual Lash Fine to Full
I bought some more individual eyelashes because I want to start wearing them more. I haven't been wearing mascara lately I don't even know why. So to still give my lashes a bit of an 'umpf' I thought I try individual lashes to get a natural fuller lashes look. These were on sale at John Lewis for £2.53 so I slyly added these to the basket when my brother was shopping online from there.

7.Natural Collection - Corrector Stick
I have been looking for a green concealer for forever but most of them are either too pricey or not available in the UK. So when I came across a blog post that did a review on this it was on my mind to pick it up next time I'm in Boots. This is really inexpensive at £1.99 and you get quite a bit of product. Sadly, when I opened my one it was smashed inside so I might have to depot it in to something - perhaps the body shop sample container.

8. Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24Hr Cream Gel Eyeshadow - Permanent Taupe
Since summer is approaching, my eye makeup have been creasing like crazy so I thought I might try this as many people use this as a base and as a shadow. I really wish Maybelline did this in more matte shades then just this taupe colour.

9. The Body Shop - Elderflower Unperfumed Eye Gel
My eye cream has recently finished and I usually do a lot of research before I buy any eye cream. So in the mean time I bought this which I keep in the fridge so that its extra cool and refreshing when I apply it under my eyes. This is 15mls and quite huge, it'll probably take me forever to finish this. 

*As you may have noticed I clearly can't count to 10 (=_=) I labeled the items 1,2,4,6...I forgot 3 and 5 - please ignore that my brain has turned to mush after the exams*

10. The Body Shop - Passion Fruit Body Butter
I'm not a massive fan of Body Shop body butter or body butters in general because I'm usually too lazy to use them. But I mainly bought this because it smelt so GOOD! This smells so yummy and fresh and amazing. I used this every morning on my arms and around my neck so I can smell the scent throughout the day. Sometimes, I forget to close the lid and when I come to my room later, it smells of this. I really wish Body Shop made this a regular scent, I would love to buy body fragrance and candles of this scent. If you're ever near Body Shop just go in a give this a sniff , I promise it won't disappoint you. Oh and the were giving out little samples of the coconut shimmer butter - that's want's in the container if you were wondering. 

11. New Look Side Bag
 I can't describe in words how much I just loved this bag when I saw it. I love the size, the colour, the design, the handles and how cute it is.I have always loved bags with the chain handles, especially side bags. This is definitely doing to be my go to summer bag. This makes a perfect companion for my new purse. I got this from New Look for £12.99 which I think is really great for such a bag. I've never tried any New Look bags so I'm curious to see how long this will last.

12.Primark Purse
I had been looking for a new purse for ages! I have had a few different types of purses in the past and they never seem to tick all the box for me. Most of them were to big and bulky or too long - they were inconvenient to take in small side bags. So when I came across this beauty I was like YES! Not only is it gorgeous and practical but also inexpensive. This was only £3 from primark. This baby was worth lining up in them huge Primarks lines for :)

13. Bourjois - Rouge Edition Lipstick 13
I have always liked pink lips more than red lips, not completely sure why. But lately I have been liking more redish lip colours so I decided that I'd pick this up because I don't really have a proper red lipstick.

14. Revlon Lacquer Balm - Enticing Desirable 
Carrying on with my recent red lip obsession, I also picked up this because when I swatched it in the store it was lovely. I actuallyl like to layer this with the Bourjois lipstick. I put on the lipstick first and then this on top and it lasts longer and it looks prettier.

15. Revlon Matte Balm - Audacious 
I never bought the Revlon Balm Stains when they came out mainly because I wasn't interested in a crayon for my lips but after falling in love with the MUA ones I thought I should try more lip crayons. This caught my eye because not only was it a matte but also a gorgous bright shade - perfect for the summer.

That's it ! PHEW~ Well, that was a bit long! Hope you guys enjoyed that ^.^
