Revlon Lip Butter- Lollipop





So they finally arrived in the UK, after what it felt like years of being raved about from the States. I was beyond excited when I saw that they were here.
This is what happened: I ran up to the Revlon section in Boots thinking 'I NEED ALL OFF THEM, no... control yourself, how many more lipsticks do you really need? 3 FOR 2!! NOW I HAVE AN EXCUSE TO GET ALL OF THEM'

However when I was swatching them on the back of my hand I really wasn't impressed with many of the others. In fact, this is the only one I picked up out of the Revlon lip butters. I do have my eye on a couple of the more neutral day to day ones but I wasn't over excited by any of them.

These are very moisturising and this colour I think has good pigmentation for a 'lip butter.' Its very glossy and contains blue and pink glitter ( you can sort of see it in the photo)

Anyway I won't ramble on to much longer as I'm pretty sure you've would have seen so many reviews on these by now, you get the gist, they are good quality for what you pay for!

WARNING: LIKE MOST THINGS IN THE YOUTUBE/BLOGGER WORLD I FEEL THESE HAVE BEEN HYPED UP A LOT AS LOTS AND LOTS OF PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THEM, THEY ARE GOOD BUT DON'T BE EXPECTED A TRULY  UNIQUE LIPSTICK AS I FEEL ITS NOT.
(don't want to be a party pooper as I do like them!)


Let me know if I've missed an amazing colour from the Lip Butter collection?

My new obsession




Recently I've just haven't had the time to worry about my nails and if they are chipped or not. I got this nail polish a while ago and recently its been on my nails for, I'd say a good 3 weeks (which is very rare for me!) If it does get chipped, you can't see because its such a neutral colour. However I would say that I'm actually pretty impressed with the quality of this nail polish, it lasts along time when paired with a good base and top coat. I have a feeling that this might be my staple polish for a little longer, well, until exams are over!


Sleek is available in Superdrug or on the Sleek website. - £3.89

Mini Topshop lipstick haul



 So I am officially obsessed with Topshop makeup, and there is only one person I can blame for it. Zoella. She has been raving about Topshop makeup for a while now and now I can't stop buying it!

I desperately need some new clothes, so I went into Topshop planning to buy some, came out with no clothes but instead 3 lipsticks. The lipsticks are £8 so who can resist that?! I really think that the quality is the same standard as MAC lipsticks, and your saving a fiver on each lipstick so that's good for my bank balance!
I hadn't ever tried one of the Lipstick pencil thing before but I couldn't resist the colour! It is such a summer colour and this hot weather just makes me want summer now! However I have tried it on and it is a beautiful colour but its rather drying. It is fine if you wear a good lip balm before and after but its just not as nice as the normal Topshop lipsticks.

Lipstick in 'innocent' - £8
Lipstick in 'Nevada' - £8
Lipstick pencil in 'Coy' - £7


Let me know what I should pick up next from the Topshop makeup range? Whats your favourite?
