Blogmas day 10

Hey guys, entering double digits now and only a fortnight until Christmas eve, and I have had yet another busy day buying Christmas cards, presents and trying to find the perfect Christmas candle. I’m currently burning my ikea and Primark candles which smell lovely and Christmassy ( don’t think that is even a real word ) but I want a big Christmas candle that doesn’t smell sickly sweet ( I hate fake vanilla smells) burns well and doesn’t cost the earth.

anyway as my last Christmas inspired nails chipped off, I removed the rest and repainted them a bright pink that has a subtle sparkle to it and its lasting so far, a little wear around the edges but that’s to be expected with me. it went on smooth, I do love the brushes in the Avon nail polishes, there not too big nor too small and the polish its self is opaque in two coats. the colour is called pink radiance .

sorry its a short post today but I feel drained, despite having a salted caramel latte earlier. How have you all been getting on with your festive preparations?

Pop of Colour

Sometimes you just want something different from the usual nude lip, clear lip or pale lip, especially if you’re wearing a natural eye look, or maybe you just want to shake things up a little and have a little fun. But be warned a bold lip isn’t for everyone, it can cause people to stare ( although I say admire ūüėȬ† ) and if you’re not comfortable with that it can be scary, but if you are¬†brave enough, I have three recommendations the first is by the brand MUA in the colour tulip

It’s the lightest of the three and the cheapest at ¬£1. Its creamy and glides on and doesn’t feel drying on the lips and has a vanilla smell to it. its bold version of a light pink and can be purchased from Superdrug, link below. This is great one as introduction in to bold lips.

The next is from the brand NYC in the colour air kiss

NYC’s spokeswomen and model is the lovely demi Lovato. I love this brand and so far have only not liked one product.

Anyways back the lipstick before I get side-tracked, is £1.99 from Superdrug. it glides on like a dream and has cherry smell that reminds me of a cherry lip balm I had as a kid. its definitely a bold pink and I did get quite a few people noticing when I wore it and is now a staple in my makeup bag. the link to purchase it is below

And lastly is from rimmel London and the Kate moss collection in the shade 107 wine

It’s currently ¬£5.49 and can be purchased from Superdrug, boots basically anywhere that sells rimmel makeup.

This is my go to red lipstick, its bold, has a pinkie tone to it that works for me, again like the others is creamy and glides on, I had heard so much about the Kate range but wasn’t too sure which red to go for as in my mind I had this picture of what I thought the perfect red was and after covering my hand in several red swatches, I chose this one and ill admit this wasn’t quite what I had in my mind but I thought I would try it and boy¬†am I glad I did, once I had applied it on my lips I fell in love. I think there is something in that range for every person it’s just a matter of finding the right one. links bellow on where to purchase

And there you have it three bold lips, from three different brands. If there is a bold lip colour you love or would like me to try please comment and let me know and I’ll give them a try. Please bare with me when it comes to swatches as I am new at this.

And finally I’ve come up with a blogging schedule so I will be hopefully posting every Friday.
