Up until last month, I had (not exaggerating) around 40 lipsticks sitting in my drawer, never used, just sitting there all pretty and to be honest- dusty! So I had a makeup cleanse- I gave away some to friends and binned A LOT of products I’d had for longer than I care to admit. Why did I need 40 lipsticks? I’ll never know. I went through a bit of an obsession with lip products and accumulated a whole range from high street brands to Chanel and YSL. No one- NO ONE needs that many, especially when you find what works for you and stick with it. This is what I’m calling my signature lip. Everyone has one shade of lipstick they will go for every day. Or in my case- 3 shades. This first product is fairly new to my collection and is a solid 10/10 in the ‘perfect nude… View Post

I feel like I am probably the only person in the world who has this opinion but I CAN’T STAND MATTE LIPSTICKS. There, I said it.  I have found around 3 matte lipsticks I can actually bare wearing and they are by Mac, Charlotte Tilbury and Chanel. I constantly have dry lips despite drinking gallons of water and applying lip balm by the bucket load so matte lipsticks do not work for me.  Going to sound like the worst blogger now, but i haven’t actually purchased a new lipstick in about 6 months (oh, the horror). Once I find a lip product I love, I find it difficult to move away from it and try something new. Lately it’s been a mix of Charlotte Tilbury’s Bitch Perfect and Mac’s Peach Blossom- ultimate old faves! BUT, I had a trip to my local Boots after work this week to pick up… View Post

I am so guilty of neglecting my high street brand lipsticks in favour of Mac, Charlotte Tilbury & Chanel. But this week I have rediscovered why I should pay more attention to brands such as E.L.F, Essence & Rimmel. I was looking in my lipstick collection to hunt out a work friendly nude shade to chuck in my makeup bag ready for the gym the following morning. For some reason i never pack my ‘expensive’ makeup (probably because i know I’ll more than likely lose it). So instead of the usual Mac shade I wear daily I thought I’d choose a cheaper alternative. When I came across these 2 lipsticks just hiding out at the back underneath a few layers of Rimmel & MUA. I have tried a few ELF products (single eyeshadows and loose powder are amazing) but for some reason i forgot about this GORGEOUS pink lipstick. Not… View Post

Happy Bank Holiday Monday loves. Hope you have all had a nice long weekend! I have a total obsession with lipsticks at the moment so I thought its only right to start a Lipstick Love otw post! This weeks lipstick loveliness comes from MAC (where I suspect many of my future lipstick loves will also come from) I have been obsessed with the shade Pure Zen since I purchased it for my wedding, however I wanted a slightly more pink tone. So I visited my local Mac counter and the Mac Doll (as I call them) picked one straight out that was perfect…lucky guess? Maybe, but she seemed to know what she was on about! She chose Peach Blossom and swatched it on her hand next to pure zen for me to see the difference. Peach Blossom is also part of the creamsheen range. I love the finish of these… View Post

Hi lovelies! Happy Sunday! As you may know, yesterday I went shopping with some girlfriends. We went to Lakeside which is a shopping centre (or mall for those of you in the US!) In Essex. Ideally I was looking for a dress for my Hen Do which has to be white I have been told…but its proving very difficult to find a nice one! Anyway I didnt find one so if anyone knows somewhere I can get a nice dress then let me know in the comments! (Id like a long sleeve midi dress in white) So I didnt really end up buying much but thought id share what I did get. We went to Primark which is a must on any shopping trip. I should mention now that I am a little bit obsessed with pyjamas! I love them! If I could wear them out in public I would!… View Post
