Revlon Colour Burst

The launch of the new and updated Revlon Just Bitten Kissable and Colourburst Matt Balm has drawn quite a bit of attention of the blogger world. My obsessive readings of other sites had led me to produce a list of things I needed from Boots.

Approaching the Revlon aisles I assumed it would have been the pink shades I would have been drawn too, particularly Unapologetic as modelled by Alex on I Covet thee. However, after a lot of swatching I decided to be brave, in season, and purchase some orange shades: Audacious and Rendezvous.

Slightly wary as to how orange might compliment a brunette I was quiet pleased when I looked in the mirror! I have really enjoyed used the Colourburst Matt Balm, morning and night. Easy to apply, they come out subtle in tone so the more you apply the more you can build up your pop of colour. I think these are going to be some of my favourite shades for summer!

The Bedroom tour

I don't do many lifestyle posts despite my love for reading others. After a recent room decoration and change around I decided experiment with my new camera. As my photography improves I hope to do more similar posts...

 Owl Lamp - Dunelm- Mill

Owl Bookheaders - Laura Ashley (If you couldn't tell I have a thing for owls!)

After I finished senior school I bought a glass frame and board from Hobby Craft and decided to make a big collage of my memories and favourite fashion moments and celebrities. This is one of my favourite things in my room and think it is a great way to display photos. I'm currently in process of collecting items for my new one!

February Favourites

First up, January's cold blasts have left my lips in a bit of a state: chapped and uncomfortably crusty (at least I'm being honest gals) has not been a particularly enjoyable experience. I have therefore been relying on my NUEX Reve de miel Baume Levres Nourisshing Lip Balm. The consistency is rich and thick and thus application feels like it provides a thorough nourishment. The smell is simply delicious. A little pricey for your average lip balm but this stuff does miracles in just one application...and I really mean that.

For a while now I have wanted to purchase Soap and Glory's Whipped Clean Shower Butter, and a bit of 'fed-upness' motivation finally made me move!  The smell is definitely a dupe for Laura Mercier's Pistachio range; its almond/pistachio/shea butter heaven. Its formula is similarly luxurious: thick and creamy, a splodge and lather into the skin instantly turns into foam. The only negative thing I can say about this is it's more of a nighttime, relaxing smell...but is that really even a negative? It's the perfect post-day shower essential. Next on my list is the moisturiser...Soap and Glory aisle, I'm coming for ya'.

After a horrible stressful month of exams and the most ridiculous amount of words I have ever had to write, the Kiehls Midnight Recovery Oil had to be purchased. I had read a lot of praise for this product and was really intrigued to try it. Although serum is a regular part of my skin care regime an oil was something I had never tried before. At first it was very weird to apply, the oil was just too much for me to handle. But after a few every-other-night sessions this stuff really did illuminate my skin in the morning. It's lavender scent was of course perfect for bed, and it really did seem to re-moisture and renew my skin. This is a definitely must for those bad times of the month!

Nars Creamy Concealor  is the most expensive makeup number, for what it actually is, I have ever purchased. I was bribed (yes, definitely bribed) to be put on a waiting list at my local Space NK...I was literally forced to say yes. Dramatisation over, it really was worth every penny. This concealor is so easy to blend and my shade, vanilla, is perfect for my skin-tone.
