Christmas time, lipsticks and I

Top to bottom
Topshop inhibition
Topshop Mischeif
 MUA Shade 1
Mac Creme Cup
Revlon Raspberry Pie
Loreal Lip Pencil Burgundy 

Revlon Raspberry Pie: 
This lip butter is my day to day colour when my lips aren't in great condition. Raspberry Pie is a pinky redy colour which can be applied lightly for a day colour and overlayed for a deeper night colour. It lasts a long time considering its a butter and wears off very naturally. The finish is glossy however, its still very moisturising. I cannot wait to try more shades of lip butters.
MAC Creme Cup:
 I can only get away with wearing this lipstick in the winter, otherwise it completely washes me out and makes me look a little ill. However in the winter it is a perfect pinky/nude colour with a glossy finish. 
MUA Shade 1:
This lipstick is perfect for this season its a deep red with purple undertones making it a burgundy colour. The formula for a £1 is AMAZING. Its not moisturising on the lips but certainly doesn't dry them out either. It leaves a little sheen on the lips, which is exactly how i like it. 
Topshop Mischief:
Is my go to red that actually suit my skintone, i have a few reds although none of them i can really pull of except this one. It is extremely pigmented and lasts around about 4-5 hours. This is a great bold colour if you after something for a night out. 
Topshop Inhibition :
This is probably my most second used lipstick which is a bold purple colour. It is perfect to stand out this season, especially at school. It is a little on the dry side, but with lots of blistex its pefect.

Sunday Snippet...4 this time of year people are planning there new years resolutions and there outfits out for new years eve. But i'm just excited for the new year. Bring on 2013! For those who know me this year has been a tough year completely filled with stress, i cant wait for the new year. On new years day i will be posting my new years resolutions, although for a sneak peak check out my 'about me' page.

Please excuse the really bad picture of me, i just wanted to give you an insight in how good the MUA lipstick in shade 1 is. I literally cannot rave enough about it! 

I will be doing a 'what i got for Christmas  post when i go back home to my mums, so keep your eyes peeled.  Any links that you lovely people have of 'what i got for Christmas' posts would be appreciated as i love reading them. Probably as i'm interested as to what other people have been given. 

Sorry this was a bit of a rambly post, i do have a winter lips one coming up tomorrow though. I hope you all have had a lovely Christmas and fun fulfilled days off work. I wish you all a happy new year and all the best.

Wooo...just had a 4 day week, 4 day weekend and now i have a 4 day week again. Can not really say I achieved much this weekend though, apart from my college application form which has now been officially submitted. That's at least one more thing off my tick list. Tick list, tick list, tick list...obsessed I am with them things. I actually don't feel I can rest without ticking something off, hence the tiredness. 

After watching some recent Youtube videos about some very personal topics, I cannot thank them enough for posting them. So please if you haven't go and watch some of Sprinkle of Glitter and Zoella videos as they are very inspirational. 

I have found that my obsession with beauty related products is over taking my life, I mean room. So if any of you lovely followers have any storage ideas feel free to comment or tweet me them. Much appreciated. I thought I might post some more Sunday summary and In The Eyes Of Mine, what do you guys think :)  

I just thought that id mention my Twitter, Instagram and Youtube links down below :)
(I haven't quite got the hang of things over on Youtube yet, i promise ill get there in the end) 

Love you!

Hello lovely ladies! 
So today me and the beautiful Megan spent the day in Exeter central. We had/ well at least i had a great day shopping and picking up a few bits and bobs before I'm back at work tomorrow. In total I picked up 7 items with a lot of faffing around from the both off us plus one YUMMY Starbucks carmel coffee frappuccino. Within the seven items I purchased the closet dupe to the Naked 1 I have ever seen! Yes! Closer than the heaven and earth palette. And that would be the Undressed palette by MUA and the quality is awesome! Every single shadow in the palette has a dupe. I picked up a MUA lipstick in Nectar as well, please note they have taken there audiences opinions into consideration and named the products, I love them. I have to admit there was one disappointing thing in the day and that was being declined entry into a 15 at the cinema even though I am 15! All because I didn't take a passport of any sort of id! I mean who carries id at 15!! Certainly not me! Agh that made me so angry at the time. Anyways I wondered into to Topshop hopelessly knowing I wouldn't be able to stop myself although I was pleased to say I came out with two very reasonable items, both being ones I cannot purchase in my local store. And that was a velvet finish lipstick in Mischief for £8 and a Glitter polish in Ice crush which I applied a minute ago and I must say I love them both fewww! Whilst knowing me and Megan aren't really huge fans of Primark with still took a quick browse around and nothing really caught our eyes until on the way out when I saw the Zara safari jacket dupe just sitting on the rail waiting to be put away, so I grabbed it whilst it was still there and I am so pleased I did. As there was only five available especially as it was a bargain price for a coat at £25. Complete bargain compared to what there selling at on eBay. OH YEAH! One other reasonable purchase was an Accessorize swimsuit which is suitable yet still girly for swimming in so I can mend my legs, so for £14 in the sale I wasn't really going to complain. I must say the sizing is very odd so I spent a fair bit of time trying on the swimwear in Accessorize eventually settling for the last one i tried on, typical :P Sorry Megan! 
I'm going to love you and leave you know as I need my rest for work tomorrow.

Enjoy the rest of the week xx

 Hackney Weekend and T4OTB one weekend after the other, I feel very privileged to have gone to both and I have had the most amazing times, seen some amazing acts and spent lots of quality time with my dad and my best friend Megan. At Hackney Weekend I dressed quite casual and sensibly wore wellies (kids hunters) , however at T4 I wore a skirt and my studded shoes which was very stupid of me as the sand was practically water and my studs got soaked! During this week I will recreate my outfits and go over both of them in detail, as I feel I haven't done this in a very long time.  However to give you the brief I wore pink aztec leggings, grey vest top and a pink parka to Hackney, multi coloured dip hem skirt, grey vest top and my pink parka to T4. Compared to last year when i hadn't really been to a festival, I have know be to two sort of ones and I wish I had gone sooner!! I just love the way everybody dresses up and then chucks on a pair of wellies and dances to late hours of the evening! I hope your having lots of fun at festivals this year!  I SAW HUGO of Made In Chelsea!!!! I love him! & or course Jamie but sadly he wasn't there! :(

I also tried my first pair of false eyelashes on, and I shall admit i don't think ill be wearing them any time soon and they really didn't look right on me :L Maybes its because it was my first time, I'm not sure! Any tips??

Anyway I've gotta go catch up on some course work so I shall love you and leave you!
