The Holiest Grail Of Lip Products

L-R : Pink Pong| Hot Pepper | Ole Flamingo






L-R : Ole Flamingo | Hot Pepper | Pink Pong

It is no secret that these practically come everywhere with me. The Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets. I've been absolutely worshipping these the past couple of months. I won't lie, when I first heard about them, I did just think to myself that these were just another liquid lipstick but oh my, no.  I started off with Pink Pong which is a bright fuchsia, then bought Ole Flamingo which looks very similar on the lips but the packaging shows it as a slightly darker version of Pink Pong and then finally bought Hot Pepper which is a great red ever so slightly verging on orange. 

What I love about these is that I can actually wear a bright lip with confidence without it smudging with the smallest touch, they last well after meals, drinks and everything. I'd say about 75% of it is still left on after meals, which is a substantial amount and only requires a quick top up. Another thing, they don't dry out your lips so if you needed to reapply, you don't have to take the entire thing off, you can just go over the top and it looks as good as new.

I would love to see them expand the collection and hopefully they will because of the explosive hype that has surrounded them recently. I'd love to see them release an orange, and perhaps in A/W a nice deep red, purple and a burgundy! Pretty please, hear me out Bourjois!

L-R : Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant £42 | The Body Shop Silky Camomile Cleansing
Oil £10


L-R:  The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-In-Oil £12 | Boots Botanics Hydrating Eye Cream £6.99 | Lucas' Papaw Ointment $15.99

L-R : Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream (Universal) £7.99 | L'oreal Skin Perfection BB Cream (Medium) £12.99

I can now 100% say that I am happy with my skincare routine! I've mentioned before that I have normal/sensitive (sometimes)/ dry (sometimes) so it's difficult trying to pin down what products to use to cater to everything, major pain, however I think I've now got it under control. 

The Cleansing Oil is just fantastic. It takes absolutely everything off my face within a minute or so and when I say it takes everything off, I mean everything. It leaves my face feeling really hydrated after using it as well which is a massive plus! I must warn you though, it will not take off the Bourjois Rouge Edtion Velvets, but to be honest, what does take them off?!

The Daily Microfoliant is pricey, but completely worth every single penny, it's lasted me almost two years! It smells weird but it is really gentle, so you can use it every single day without it taking half your skin off. I'm pretty sure that the more I use it, the softer my skin gets. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone!

Moving on to moisturisers, the Overnight Serum-In-Oil has definitely earned its rightful place on my bedside table, it would be under my pillow but it's made of glass... that's just how much I treasure it. I use about 3-4 drops in the palm of my hand and it works perfectly at moisturising my face and neck and keeps it that way until I wake up in the morning and sometimes even after that. It leaves my skin feeling plump and alive! I would also recommend this product to everyone too!

I've been really enjoying BB creams lately, something I thought I'd never say. These two work together really nicely to achieve the perfect amount of sheer coverage and colour that I need for my base. There's nothing worse in the Summer than wearing a heavy layer of foundation that is only going to continue slipping down your face as the day goes on. Add a bit of powder and bingo, I've got my lightweight base that is perfect for enduring the heat!

I also did a video where I talk you through more in depth about my skincare routine if you'd like to check it out!


So there we have my skincare routine! Pretty simple but really effective! 

Let me know in the comments what your holy grail skincare bits are!

July Primark Haul 2014


I'm going to try my very hardest to start actually blogging more, I know I keep saying this but I really, really want to this time. Call it my mid-year resolution!

So I thought I'd ease myself back into the blogging world by letting you all know about latest video... MY JULY PRIMARK HAUL! I know y'all like a good Primark haul and this one is an extra good, however quite a dark one! I really 'stepped out of my comfort zone' because I NEVER wear black (right?) and purchased possibly every black coloured thing in the store! 

This goes out to all my fellow 'all-black-even-in-25-degrees-heat wearers', I know you're out there somewhere! 

Hope you enjoy! And you will definitely see me back on here soon! 

Oh and I almost forgot a bit of plugging, if you're not already subscribed, why not hit that subscribe button and make me a very happy bunny!
