Bourjois: rouge edition velvet “don’t pink of it!”

Hello lovely people, 

I hope you’re all having a lovely week and have lots of amazing plans for the weekend. This weekend is the weekend Callum and I finally go to London! We’re away for 4 nights/5 days and you’d think we were going for a 14 day meditation cruise judging by the amount I’ve packed! 

Anyway… whilst popping into Superdrug for the soul reason of picking up some hand sanitizer (a product that should cost about 80p and I came out with a total of £16.84… oops), I picked up the Bourjois: rouge velvet edition liquid lipstick in the shade “don’t pink of it!” And thoughts I’d do a first impressions post. 

The shade is pink – no surprises judging by the name! When I first applied it, I wasn’t sure as it’s a lot pinker than I’d usually go for, but after having it on for a while, I think I like it! Application was easy, but a lot of product was on the brush so there was no need to get more product from the bottle. It felt really soft and velvety and the feeling stayed whilst the lipstick dried. It doesn’t stain like a lot of other liquid lipsticks do – it does stay on but is easier to wipe of and transfers easily so this defiantly isn’t a staining liquid lipstick – but for the price of £8.99 (or two for £12 at the moment), I’m not complaining and it certainly is a good lipstick. 

And that’s it! A little first impressions blog post before my big London adventure! Have a lovely rest of the week and lovely weekend and thank you for reading!

Love, Emily x


Meet Matt(e) Hughes liquid lipstick and general update

Hello lovely people, 

After a fabulous 6 weeks off, I went back to work on Monday and that’s why I haven’t updated my blog for a while! I haven’t had a chance to buy anything (much) new or had the chance to do a blog post until now! I hope you’re having a lovely week and this is just a little update on me and a little review on a new make-up product I bought (well, got a sample of!). 

After buying all new skin care products last week, can I just say my skin looks the best it’s ever looked in my life. It’s so soft and I have very few dark spots or imperfections and I’ve had no break outs – which is just amazing. One of the new products I bought was the Superdrug naturally radiant eye cream which I instantly fell in love with as it totally brightens up my whole eye area and I still love it for that buuuuuut unfortunately it’s not really shifting my dark circles or the fine lines I have under my eye so I’m on the hunt, still, for an eye cream that can do that job – any suggestions would be amazing, please and thank you. 

Last week I ordered some samples from feelunique which finally came yesterday and one of the samples was The Balm meet Matt(e) Hughes liquid lipstick in the shade “committed”. I was expecting to get some in a little packet but got a miniature lipstick which is so cute! I really like the colour as well and it’s super creamy and smells just like After Eights – it’s always a bonus when things smell of chocolate. After trying the sample and wearing it at work, I think I’ll defiantly be purchasing a full sized one in the near future. As I say, I love the colour and it stayed on for ages and smells amazing. 

So there we are – just a little updated and review as I haven’t done anything in ages. If anyone could recommend an eye cream that battles dark circles and fine lines, I’d be really grateful! Have an amazing rest of the week and weekend and thank you for reading. 

Love, Emily x
