Stila lip pens

I have a big collection of stila lip pens now. I tend to buy them in packs because they're so pricey by themselves (I think they're around £15 each).

ASOS has just had the Christmas box set on for £12 last week which I quickly snapped up! There are 8 in the collection, so that made a saving of over 700% (according to ASOS - I didn't do the maths).

The Christmas Collection:
Jack Frost, Jingle, Holly, Jolly, Joy, Splendor, Black Cherry, Sugar Plum.


No7 Foundation Match

A couple of week ago, I popped into my local boots to get my foundation matched with the new No7 Match Made service. Normally, when I buy foundation, I do swatch checks on my hand and across my chin, and settle for the lightest shade in the range! (in some high street brands, this is still too dark for my skin - I'm looking at you Bourjois!) I've never had my foundation matched at a counter before, so it was a first.

The process was really easy and it took 5 minutes all together. The consultant (I forgot her name!) talked through what I was looking for in terms of coverage and how often I wear foundation. And then came the fun bit. She pushed the camera thing into my cheeks with some pressure to some the light getting in to the picture, and gave me my perfect foundation.

Despite my usual shopping habits, I was the second lightest shade in Stay Perfect foundation, not the lightest which me and my friend were actually shocked by. I've been wearing the foundation every day for the past few weeks and it is the most perfect foundation for me in my collection.

I really recommend this service because I would have ended up buying the wrong shade without it. I really hope this technology spreads to other make-up counters in the near future.


Lush Haul

 This smells incredible! It reminds me of The Comforter, which is my all-time favourite.

 This smells so fresh and clean. The pattern is so cute as well.

 I bought Fun in yellow and green. I bought them online so I wasn't sure what smell I would like best. I've used them so far to hand wash clothes and in the shower. I think they're ok, but I need to play around with them a little more.

Clockwise from top left: Porridge Soap, Party Popper, Fun in Yellow (vanilla), North Pole Soap in Pink (mint chocolate), Glogg Shower Gel ( This is amazing! It reminds me of my trip to Munich last Christmas and the smell of the Christmas markets and the Gluhwein stands. Heavenly!), Snow Globe Soap, Fun in Green, Mr. Punch Soap, Candy Mountain Bubble Bar.


Body Shop Earth Lovers

Earth Lovers Shower Gel, £5

What a surprise, I've bought something else from The Body Shop.
The Earth Lovers shower gels come in five or six different flavours. I got the Watermelon and Eucalyptus one, but I really wanted the Fig one.
The shower gel is like an oil/water which is something I've never seen before. When I first tested it, I thought the consistency was a bit strange as normally I'm drawn to the foamiest gels. It's really good though and it foams really nicely. I pour some in my hand (about the size of a 10p piece) and it lathers so well and smells amazing. I would buy the whole range because they're all beautiful.  Any more than that at a time and it begins to smell a bit overwhelming. But other than that it's an amazing product and its going to last me ages!!
