Avon Lipstick in 'Oxford Wine'

So I've recently developed an obsession with Avon, as you'll see with upcoming reviews, and today I thought I'd share my current favourite lipstick.

Avon ultra colour lipstick in 'Oxford Wine' - £5.25

This lipstick is a little more matte than this picture shows, but isn't drying at all which makes a change. I suffer from incredibly chapped lips in the winter and I often can't wear matte lipstick because it dries them out too much. However, this lipstick is super hydrating and softening, which is a relief!
The dark purple shade is a very bold choice for me - I normally stick to neon pinks and corals, but I love this colour more than I expected. It lasts until lunchtime before I need to reapply which is great for a lipstick of this price.
I'll definitely be picking up more colours in this range, the formula and price are fantastic.

Weekend Wishlist: Blazers

Blazers


1 2 3 4 
Payday is edging closer and closer, and I feel like I need a blazer in my life to sharpen up my look, so this week's wishlist is dedicated to the humble blazer.
How amazing is the fourth one? That's going in my online basket as soon as the money hits my account.

What's on your payday wishlist?

Ps. I'm aware posting has been sporadic (at best) recently, I am trying to rectify that. I'm currently working full time whilst juggling a full time Masters degree and it's hard!

Review: Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Copper Intrigue

As long time readers know, I am a fan of nail polish. And when I say fan, I mean I have 250 and it is an obsession. Yup. Yet I didn't have any browns. Pretty browns. So when I was adorning the pages of the Avon catalogue last month and saw 'Copper Intrigued' I was indeed intrigued. And I was not disappointed.

I love it. The colour is a beautiful brown, with flecks of gold running through it, meaning that when it hits the light it is the most gorgeous colour!
It took me 3 coats to be super opaque, but I feel two would have been enough as well. The website claims it lasts 12 days. This is definitely not true, without a top coat it started chipping the day after, and with a top coat it lasted 3 days. I use Seche Vite, which is not worth the hype, so maybe a different top coat would fair differently. Anyone got any recommendations?

It's currently on sale for £3 on the Avon website, and they have a range of colours. I definitely recommend!

Last minute Christmas present? "So...Rock n Roll" body fragrance trio

IMG_3830

It's Christmas Eve, and I just know some of you won't have finished Christmas shopping yet. (I haven't...)  So if you're in a bit of a rut as to a stocking filler for your daughter/sister/ (relevant female friend/family member) then I recommend this. As a teenager I also wore So...? body sprays, therefore when I got an email asking if I wanted to review on one my blog I went for it, o nostalgia!
Personally I think it's a great idea for a stocking filler or little present, they retail for under £4 in all the generic British shops selling Christmassy gifts, like Sainsburys and Wilkinsons to name but two!
It's Christmas tomorrow! EEEEEEEEEE!
