I am back once again, and a lot sooner than I think anyone anticipated! Including myself.
The response my blog post last night received was amazing and has genuinely just kicked me up the back side to really continue something I started and that I know I love doing. With the ups and downs I have had so far this year my motivation has really been shot down in almost every aspect of my life so really looking forward to building my confidence back up and really work towards what I wish to achieve!
So lets get started then shall we!?
I thought after blabbering on for ages last night a small post today will be more than enough rather than boring you all!
Today’s post is all about the….LIPS!
If you have been a long time follower you will know that lips just aren’t my thing, but you will be impressed… I have gone from having just 5 lippies, to now owning around 20. This is a vast improvement so I thought I may as well show you just a couple of my current favourites!
Rimmel London Apocolips Lip Lacquer in shade “Eclipse” – £6.49 in Boots
Revlon Colour Burst Lacquer Balm in shade “Provocateur” – £7.99 in Boots (Revlon currently 2 for £10)
With my lip colours, I go through phases of wearing a nude everyday, a everyday or just a balm, but it has got to the point where if I have nothing on my lips I will go mad until I can get my hands on something. It just feels uncomfortable so I have to carry my balms with me everywhere at the moment for an incase of emergency!
For a very natural day where I am looking for a very subtle hint of colour with a glossy finish, I wear my ELF Luscious Lips. It is a twisty tool to get the product out so the product is kept fresh and doesn’t turn gloopy. I love glosses like this as it makes it easier to apply. The best rule to follow with these types of applicators is to work along the lines of less is more. It is easier to build the product up on the lip than to twist too much and end up with slick lips that are continuously sticking together and looks like your mouth is melting or your just the strange dribbler walking down the road – not cool. So always start with a thin layer and a apply small amounts at time. The colour is beautiful and is one of my faves. I recently bought the “Cherry Tart” shade too and is slightly more reddy and just as pretty!

My Revlon Colour Burst was only bought after watching every YouTuber speak about it and every blogger writing about it. I just HAD to see what the fuss was about. When I do this I find myself being disappointed and I have such high hopes after the amazing reviews, so I used once and put it away in my drawer. I recently rediscovered it and applied it feeling I should give it one more try and it is currently my favourite red colour! It glides smoothly on the lips and isn’t too thick like some sticks. It has a minty smell/taste so thats just never bad thing and lasts a lot longer than most reds. I can’t believe I completely disregarded this from the start! It is definitely a must have in your lipstick draw!
Finally there is the Rimmel London Apocolips. I spent such a long time looking for which colour to buy and I am always so drawn to burgundy shades, so Eclipse was a winner for me. I do have the nude one as well but that can be a little too pales for me depending on my makeup. Coming in to Autumn is my absolute favourite time of year and with the lovely English rain at the moment, I have definitely been rocking this when I can. It is very difficult to apply simply because of the deep colour (Stains so easily) so I wouldn’t apply it if you hurrying out the door. It has a beautiful finish though and lasts a relatively long time for a lippie. It is very dark to begin with so I simply apply to my bottom lip and rub and just use the remainder of the wand to go around the edges to ensure my lips are perfect. The finish is glossy but the right amount of glossy! It takes a lot of patience with any dark colour, but its just too beautiful! I will be wearing this every opportunity I get with the arrival of the colder months!
And there we have my current favourite lip products! All have great pigmentation so the colours come out just how you expect them to! Have you tried any of them? Let me know below or on the links below!
Goodbye for now my loves! xo
