Maybelline Baby Lips.. Finally!


20130816-200956.jpg

I had read on a few blogs that Maybelline had finally released their infamous ‘baby lips’ in the UK and I had been keeping my eyes peeled for them but hadn’t seen them until now!

I really wanted to try them because I always seem to have dry lips and I love a bit of tint.. Not to mention anything that smells good, on my lips! These seemed like the perfect token!

The packaging seems a bit flimsy and not really the kind that I’d happily whip out when meeting the Queen as its loud and bright (not to mention a bit flimsy) however, I don’t mind! I can tell I’m not paying for packaging because the product is cheap so I understand their thinking!

When choosing the colours I had a choice between Cherry Me and Peaches because they were the only colours that appealed to me however, I wanted to try just the one for now so being an avid fan of the Haribo Cherries, I chose Cherry Me!

Ok.. The smell! I CAN’T EVEN EXPLAIN! I want to eat it! It has that typical candy cherry scent! If you’ve ever had Cherry Drops, Cherry penny sweets or anything sweet cherry flavoured, you’ll understand! I love the fact that once I’ve got it on my lips and whilst I’m applying, people ask what smells so good!

The colour isn’t super pigmented but I like the sheer colour it does have! It’s almost transparent apart from a very light red hue that you notice once you look hard!

The moisturising factor is mediocre! Nothing uber drenching or anything but I like the finish which isn’t super glossy or super matte! You could literally wear this with any makeup look and it would suit adequately!

All in all, I’m a big fan! I really like these and I know I’ll get through this ‘Cherry Me’ one in no time! So I’ll be sure to try some more soon!

Baby lips are £2.99 from Boots or Superdrug

THIS MONTH! I’ve been loving quite a lot of different things! I’ll show you the range.. From make up to jewellery to food to clothes! LET’S BEGIN!

So this bracelet we bought from Primark (me and mum) I think it looks great on! I even wore it kind of layered up with my jumper and thought it looked FAB!
Primark £4

These shoes are from River Island! They have a medium platform and a lovely quilted pattern! Not the easiest to walk in though because they’re straight and won’t allow your foot to bend! I love the gold detailing and the front of the shoe is a very flattering shape and they look a bit different to your usual ballet flats.

This perfume was from the Body Shop! It’s in the scent Moroccan Rose and I think it smells divine! Definitely a rosy musk Though so avoid if that not your thing! It’s perfect for the transition from Summer to Autumn/fall. Unfortunately it was limited edition but they still sell the body butter! YUM!

This t shirt from Dorothy Perkins is what I’ve lived in! As soon as it been washed.. I’ve worn it again! It’s so comfortable, has a brilliant Aztec pattern and I got it from the sale section of Dorothy Perkins for £9 from £18! Whenever you go to Dorothy Perkins or when shopping online, their online section is amazing! So don’t miss it!

The Urban Decay Naked 2 palette was a new purchase for me! YES! I’m a late bloomer but I’ve just discovered it and I’m in love! The colours are perfect for day and night! I actually got mine on eBay for £20 as a seller had them on quite cheap however it’s usually £32 so quite pricey! It’s so amazing I’ve got the Naked palette from eBay as well for the same price! The colours in the Naked palette are slightly more neutral and brown compared to the second so definitely up my street!

Naked Palette 2 £36

The stay matte powder from Rimmel London is fantastic! I’ve been getting quite oily skin recently so though I’d keep it in my bag and since doing so, can’t live without it! I recently bought the Dior powder too but am waiting until the Rimmel one finishes until I use the Dior! It’s lightweight, easy to use and comes in translucent! Woo!

Some people are frightened to death of it but curling your eye lashe is one of the most fundamental parts of doing your make up! It opens the eyes, makes them look more feminine and is a great step before applying mascara to get maximum results! I’ve got quite Kim lashes but their limo and need curl so I curl my lashes effort and after applying mascara (once its dry) and this helps to ensure my lashes are ready for the beautiful day ahead! I’ve had my Tweezerman ones since I was 11 (which is 9 years) and they’ve never caused me any problems! I’ve not had to change the rubber once in that whole time!

Tweezerman eye lash curlers £15

I’ve been loving Tea recently! I’ve needed to relax and there’s nothing better than a cup of tea to relax! Proper British style! However, to give it a bit of twist, try adding 5/6 cardamom seeds in your tea for a different flavour! Like my mug?

I LOVE CHOCOLATE! Enough said!

Perfume/ aftershave collection

I’ve always been a massive fan of perfumes! To be honest, I can’t wear them out for religious reasons but I love wearing them at home! They make you feel so fresh, sexy, happy and attractive, when you’re probably not looking your best!

I’m a big fan of sales and perfumes are no given! So all of my perfumes, I got on sale! Some of my perfumes are gifts, some I got free with another purchase, so keep your eyes open for special deals!

Can you tell I like celebrity perfumes!? The reason being because they’re real people who have real tastes and they’re not trying to develop something for commercial use based on demand. They genuinely like the scent for themselves and I happen to like them too!

I like all kinds of smells! Mature like VB, floral like SJP and sweet like Nina Ricci (that all rhymes :))! I think different smells make you feel different things! Web I get out the shower, theres nothing I like better than choosing hitch scent to wear that evening.. Delightful!
