Barry M Lipstick in #121 Pillar Box Red

I am of the belief that you cannot have too many lipsticks. I have around 50, and I would happily double that amount. That being said, it suddenly occurred to me that I only have one 'true' red lipstick, and I have never blogged it. Therefore today I decided to rectify that!

I must have had this lipstick for almost two years now, and it's starting to run a bit low! As with all Barry M lipsticks, it is incredibly pigmented, but it does transfer when eating and drinking which is a shame.

A true red lipstick is a staple for most girl's lipstick collections, and this is a good lipstick to pick up if you're not willing to spend £15 + on a lipstick, as it retails for £4.49, which is nice and cheap!

What's your favourite 'true' red lipstick?

Watermelon Pink

What with the freezing cold weather England has been having lately, I have been obsessing over the colour pink. But not just any old type of pink, oh no. Watermelon pink to be exact.

If you've been following my blog for a while, you'll know my obsession over bright pink lipsticks. So this Sleek matte offering is absolutely perfect.
I currently have this nail colour adorning my hands, and I can't stop looking at them, so the combination is a winner for me.

What make-up colour are you loving at them moment?

"Don't Knock It Til You've Tried It" Lush Gift Set

I was lucky enough to receive a whole lot of Lush goodies for Christmas, and this gift set includes many products that are new to me - in fact, the only one I've ever used before is Blackberry Bath Bomb. I love that many different products have been included, instead of comprising entirely of bath bombs or bubble bars, as many of their gift sets do. I am guilty to sticking to bath products and ignoring anything else Lush has to offer, so I look forward to seeing what these products are like. I have already started using the toothy tabs (interesting) and the shampoo (amazing), so I'll share reviews with you soon!

Did anyone else get this gift set, or one similar?

Luxury Lush Pud

Hello again! Happy New Years! I know I've been absent for a while, but that was planned. Uni was absolutely manic in December, and wanted to stay away from my laptop as much as possible over Christmas!

Luxury Lush Pud was a little present gifted to me by my boyfriend, and I had been eye-ing up in Lush since I came home at the beginning of the month, so I was really grateful to get my paws on it!

Described as "soothing lavender fragrance and calming pastel colours, this bath bomb is perfect for bed time, or any time you want to relax", I would agree, for the most part. But, pastel colours? I don't think so! Look at that gorgeous magenta colour of my bath water! I never know whether to expect moisturising qualities with bath bombs, so I was pleasantly surprised to feel my skin extra soft when I left the bath.

Now, for those of you that used 'The Enchanter' bath bomb and was left stained like I was, do not fear! I was bit worried that the pigmented bath water would leave residue on my skin and bath, but I was thankful to see that there was none of that with this beauty!

I'm hoping they'll bring this one back for next Christmas, as I fell in love with it! There's only one downside, which is those little coloured discs have a tendency to drop out! Apart from that, this bath bomb is relaxing and amazing!
