Hello there! I don't know why I haven't done a NOTD on this before - This is my holy grail nail polish! Its not anything exciting but it deserves its own post! Here goes...

It is a sheer pink nude colour, goes with any outfit, streak free, fresh and amazing! I go to this polish whenever I'm unsure of what to put on my nails. Although the packaging is rubbing off now! Does that bother me? Of course not? 

Do you own any Revlon Nail Polishes?

Hello there! So today I thought I'd review a product that I've had for a while. I know you've seen these 1million times but hey! So when these first came out I picked this one up in my local boots. I haven't picked any up since but I have been very close to at times! Anyway lets get on with the review!

Lovely but simple packaging, see through lid which is great for picking out when stored!

Peach parfait is like it says peach but more red toned? And it has a considerable amount of glitter shimmer in it. It's a beautiful colour and glides on fairly smoothly! 

I know this is a bit out of focus but it really shows what it looks like on my lips and you can see the shimmer in it. 

So are they worth the hype? 

Well in my opinion its down to you! But I must say I haven't reached for this as much as I thought I would? Is that saying something! I think the thing that puts me off this particular colour is the shimmer. As it wears away the shimmer stays and looks a bit odd on the lips. But a lovely colour to begin with! 

How many of these have you collected, if any?
Which are your favourites?

Hi guys! So today I'm going to be reviewing a product I picked up a couple of weeks ago. The Kate Moss for Rimmel Lipstick in Shade 20. I wanted a hot pink lipstick for ages, and when I swatched this in Boots I loved it, so I had to buy it! 

The packaging is so sleek and sophisticated! The lid clicks on really securely so no popping off somewhere unexpected!

Here is a swatch. I'd say the lip swatch is a bit more accurate, its very blue toned! Beautiful consistency texture and lasts a good long time on the lips!

 I did the eating test with this today - some of it did come off but you could still tell I had bright pink lips! A little rub together of the lips and practically back to normal! 

Here is a little FOTD - I keep the eyes very simple when wearing this but I just think it looks so cute! I wore this in my 'What's In My Travel Toiletry Bag?!'.

Have you picked up any of the Kate Moss Lipsticks? Do you love them?

Hi Guys, sorry this post is a bit picture heavy! I picked this up on sale in Topshop the other day for £2! To be honest, I wasn't expecting to love it as much as I do! I thought it was just going to be a sheer lip balm but no! Its really pigmented, smooth and a beautiful natural lip colour! Its staying power is amazing as well! It just sits so nicely on the lips and isn't at all drying, but moisturising! I'm actually going to wear this to my prom! Yes, it has prom status! ;-) Enjoy a bit of a scary lip swatch! 

Is there a lip product you've picked up recently that you love?
