Judge Judge Body Image Judge Judge – Be You.

bodyimageWe all have hang ups, we all have body confident days and we are all judge every single day. No matter what you think we are all being judged and we judge others as well, as much as you try not too – you may judge to be positive or negative. Now my favourite song at the moment is Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass, which celebrates being “curvy” and being body confident. I know as a “curvy/fuller figured” girl that I was highly pissed off on X Factor, when a thinner girl with killer abs was singing the lyrics. But only because I am proud to have a “bit of meat” on me. It did get me thinking, there are so many photos that say “curvy is what the man wants”, curves etc are all a man needs……… but seriously ladies – be you, be proud of who you are and don’t aim to change your body for a man, or a girl hehe.

I logged onto Facebook earlier and saw my best friend had posted this status and I was like You go girl. She is the opposite to me, has the most (in my eyes) the amazing figure. She said this:

“So apparently a ‘real woman’ supposedly according to much of society is a lady who is curvaceous and of a larger size? What about those who may be smaller than the national average clothes size of 12/14 does that make us not ‘real women?’ Not considered as feminine because we may be lacking in a few extra pounds? No we are all women whether you’re big, small, round or tall. I’m all for equality and acceptance no matter of your appearance and embracing our inner beauty and confidence because that’s what it’s all about, but we’re still not there yet. Since when is it ok for larger girls to make smaller girls feel inferior by referring to them in such a belittling context, because I guarantee you if a parade of skinny girls sauntered about declaring themselves as ‘real women’ and celebrating their smaller frame over other sizes there would be uproar! It’s wrong we are all women together and should never make one size seem more or less than another. And as for that song ‘all about that bass’ it is not ok to refer to people as ‘skinny bitches!’ It is no different to calling people ‘fat bitches’ both are so wrong. Celebrate all sizes without needing to single out or put down a certain appearance in the process and claiming its shameful to look that way. We are ALL beautiful majestic and mysterious creatures. Rock on bitches ‪#‎spreadkindnessnotjudgement‬

I just thought, wow that is so true. Who am I to think that because the media represent girls having the perfect figure with curves etc that is what the person that I desire wants. Who am I to judge another girl in having a “bigger body” or be jealous of a “thinner body”. Imagine if we were all the same, imagine if we all were bigger girls or smaller girls. That would be absolutely boring and dull. Everyone has tastes, whether it be you like a blonde person, brunette, auburn, red hair, white hair, black skin, asian, indian, black,covered in tattoos, piercings, short, tall etc….. in the end……………. we all shit, cry, are sick, blink and breathe together. Hahaha!!

I know full well that I judge girls and I absolutely shouldnt, I should feel comfortable in my own skin. But I believe that it is also jealousy, I am jealous that they have their figure, that hair, those boobs etc – but at the end of the day, there’s nothing wrong with me. I am not unwell, I can walk, talk, see, hear, breathe… I am now changing my perspective to – ‘as long as I am happy, who gives a shit as to what I look like, the people that care are going to stay and the people that don’t, they’re not worth your time’

I saw Zoella and Louise speak about this previously and to put it into perspective, I am Louise and my friend is Zoe. LOL and I could absolutely see what they were talking about. Have a look at this – click on the photo 🙂

awww

Anyway after such a shit day, I found this photo and I thought I had to share it because it’s just so true. I have previously spoken about this topic before and you can read about this here  and a girl power post.

Finally my friend had mentioned previously the “kind campaign”. Please have a look at their website, it’s all about girls being kind to each other especially at school, because its one of the toughest times for a girl, the hormones, the fake friends, the bullies and of course peer pressure. Here’s their website.  It’s also a great website to gain information and background for help on feeling great and having that confidence. 

Let’s stick together girls.

Shop shop shop – MUA LIP SWITCH REVIEW & more!

5261c10cb4ca0ff09c6eb809643d7798

 

September has made me poor, I had it as a “me month” where basically I just treated myself all month and I loved it, well until 1 week into payday haha and im out of funds. Bugger. Have a look at some of my purchases, PS – ** teeth in lip photos HAVE been whitened because basically I need to invest in whitening *disgusting I know*, only been slightly whitened okie pokie **

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetI freaking love a cute little Christmas find early on in the year. This snuggly little bobble hat from Primark. I think this is the only red item that I own and its so Christmassy. The snow men, the snow flake design and hello look at that HUGE bobble up the top. Also – do you love my lights, that’s only some of them in my room (slightly obsessed) PS – hello lovely eyebrows alert – don’t mind if I do!

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetMy brother texted me a few days ago saying, “I have posted you something let me know when you get it, I hope it makes you smile” that’s all he said. And to my surprise, this huge box came along and inside was Zoella’s Soak Opera and Creamy Madly Dreamy. How beautiful are they. I therefore had to buy some more. I absolutely adore Zoella and everything that she stands for. She in my eyes is everything that I want, she goes through a lot I go through – and perfect “role model” for little girls out there, compared to the likes of Miley Cyrus haha.

But seriously, how cute are the designs of these products. The peachy colours, the gorgeous handwriting labels and how cute is even the names of the products. Just like Tanya Burr’s they are so relatable and every day phrases, unlike these huge companies that make up all these silly names. The smell is beautiful, very calming and relaxing and the body lotion makes you skin so smooth. I bought the make up bag and the fizz bar today, so I havent tried them yet. Will keep you posted!!

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

ITS AUTUMN!!! LOVE THIS SEASON!! PS 3 new things in this photo. 1 – leaves ❤ 2 – the dark brown ankle boots from Primark, with a fleecy insides ❤ and finally this steal of a bargain from Dorothy Perkins. I have it in Black and now in Purple. The black I wore on a night out:

10624691_10204105960082119_8297214656623949164_n

It has a flower texture to it, nice and comfy around the “bust” area and poofs out just below the waist. It makes me feel great, and I realised that I have been wearing the wrong size for months. I have been trying to wean myself away from “comfort sizes” but it appears that I need to be more stricter. The size above is a size “twenteen” lol, and the purple I bought is a 16 and I feel amazing in it. If you want to have a look further please see the following link >> Dorothy Perkins Link <<

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 presetI am literally about to go back on everything I have just said here haha. But I LOVE a comfy jumper and this is my ultimate favourite. My Mickey Mouse oversized jumper is my go to jumper. I am currently suffering with a heavy cold (I look like Rudolph!!) and this just brings me so much comfort. I need to buy a new one, so I am mega excited for the Winter months to come in. Love a naff jumper!

PicMonkey Collage3I saw on Facebook yesterday an advert for these new products from MUA. I absolutely love a matte lipstick, if you don’t know already and I saw this and thought hey up, I am so gonna try them. So I went into Superdrug today (seriously they have to have a better discount card, I am forever in there!) anyway, these are the three I bought.

Top one – Hot Fuchsia

Middle – Coral Pink

Bottom – Persian Plum

The Lip Switch contains one end a matte lipstick, the other a high shine lip gloss. So therefore for me its great, as I am often changing, but I have had a try with them all and these are the results. As previously stated, I have only whitened slightly my teeth 🙂 lol hence the bright white, but the colours are true.

PicMonkey Collage1Persian Plum. It’s probably the deepest shade I have apart from Barry M Shade 156. Its a strong pigmentation, its rather dark in my opinion, but I would love to wear it on a night out. It will be great for those wintery days and nights. The reason as to why I have these different poses is that you can see as to each one looks like, and also as to whether any of the lipstick comes off on your teeth. Top right you can see there is some going on the teeth, but not as bad as previous lipsticks I have reviewed. The images that you see above, is the only ones in which I have not included the gloss. Therefore you can see that the matte still has a shine to it, unlike the Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipsticks.

PicMonkey Collage5Coral Pink is the shade shown above. On the left hand side is just “matte” and on the right has the addition of the shine lipgloss. As you can see sometimes there is no differences but it definitely does give it a different look. The shade I believe is beautiful, in my opinion it suits my skin tone and its not too overpowerful and strong and of course in your face. I think I would be using this lipstick more. No marks on the teeth, which is also a bonus!

PicMonkey Collage6Hot Fuschia, now you are able to tell me off, as you can see I clearly cant count and take photographs ready for the comparisions. The bottom two only are matte, whilst the rest again are like previous – matte vs shine. Again this is a beautiful colour, very pink as it states “hot fuchsia”. It’s something to wear on a night out, a nice little date (ill be lucky!) or a nice “summery” day haha!

I think out of the 3 of them, I prefer the Coral version. I have tried to find these online on the MUA website but it appears there is only a blog about them at the moment. Bit strange.

Have a good night & thanks for reading.

My Favourite Youtubers.


large (12)

My brother first introduced me to “Youtubers” and to be honest every day now I look forward to a new Youtube update from my favourite Youtubers. It is weird to think that some of these are younger than me but most are my age and it kinda makes me feel a bit sad because they are living one amazing life, in which something I could easily do but I have no confidence to do it! It takes a lot of willingness, determination and the best personalities in order to gain as much recognition as these guys have. Someone at my work the other day was at a Beyonce concert and in a photo of her’s was Caspar Lee taking a selfie, I reacted “OMG its Caspar!!” and I even sent her the selfie of his but she had absolutely no idea who he was. Do you know how hard it is to explain to someone who doesn’t understand the You Tube world who these people are, and to not come across like a complete weirdo – just following people’s lives. I thought I would talk about my favourite You Tubers and if you have any that I haven’t mentioned or you think I may like, PLEASE send me their links because I am always finding new ones 🙂

I truly think that they allow me to escape from everything, to not think about the worries in my life – for them to open up about theirs, to go through their life moments, their emotions, relationships and their memorable moments I believe is just wonderful. Although I have not been able to find anyone I know apart from my brother who watches Youtubers, I know that there is a huge fan base out there, in which I can quote from one of their clips and someone would know exactly what the hell I was on about.

So thank you very much…… really. All the photos of the Youtubers below I have found on Google and I have edited myself with either their catchphrases or something that they are known by with little logos. I hope they see them 😀

large (13)My first ever Youtuber that I ever followed was the gorgeously beautiful Zoe Sugg aka Zoella. She is absolutely adorable, her little videos are so pretty and it helps that she is lovely too! I am very jealous of her hair, her now new flat and what she looks like. I love how open she is with her anxiety and panic attacks as I have had them in the past, her hauls and beauty/make up vlogs have also allowed for me to buy things I wouldn’t buy before and I love that. I just love her enthusiasm, even when she is feeling down the vlog is still great! She writes her own blog as well which is really detailed and very fun and girly, if you wish to check that out click >>>>>>>> LITTLE ONE <<<<<<<< or if you wish to check out her videos click >>>>>>> I LOVE ZOELLA <<<<<<<< Make sure you check out her second channel More Zoella too!!

large (14)Next is Mr Alfie Deyes, he is one cheeky charmer who has charmed the likes of Zoella and they are an item (which is super uber cute!!!). He’s funny, a gentleman, cheeky and of course a lovely representation of a great English man. He talks about daily life in Brighton, what he has been up to and has a lot of funny collabs. Watch out for how many times he says “so”, he’s picked himself up on it as well. Although he does not vlog everyday he does use his Tumblr to update his goings on so if you wish to see that click here >>>>>>> WASSUP GUYS <<<<<<< and of course his lovely youtube videos >>>>>>> POINTLESS BLOG <<<<<<<

large (20)Next is someone who I absolutely love, Louise!! I am often told that I am pretty much like Louise in many ways than one and I find that an absolute huge compliment. She is so funny, beautiful and an amazing role model for anyone out there. She is very honest, emotional, funny and with her favourite “chummy” best friend Zoella they make the best videos. Watch out for her gorgeous little munchkin Darcy who has been nicknamed as Baby Glitter and with her lovely husband Matt they make a wonderful family. She is often very honest and I do love that about her, especially with her weight, diets, the way she looks etc. I don’t know whether because I went to Uni where she lives I have an even stronger connection to her, because I watch her videos and think oh god I have been there, oh wow imagine if I went past her loads in the past! She too has a beautiful blog >>>>>> CHUMMY <<<<<<< and of course her weekly vlogs >>>>>>> SPRINKLERINOS <<<<<<< Make sure again that you check out her second blog Sprinkle of Chatter.

large (18)Haha so far these have all been linked to Zoe and this cheeky chappy is no exception, he is the younger brother of Zoella and he is just as funny and lovely as he appears in the photo shown above. Joe takes us through his routines of the day, often taking us to work with him being a thatcher, he does amazing impressions of celebrities and public figures and of course often likes to play pranks of his fellow Youtubers. He is hilarious, I promise you. Joe is sometimes involved with Jim Chapman in many scavenger hunts through the Daily Mix challenge and that’s where I actually found out about Joe. Again Joe does not have a blog but he does have a lovely Tumblr so if you wish to check that out >>>>>>> I THATCH ROOFS <<<<<<< and of course his lovely Youtube channel >>>>>>>> MINI SUGGLETT <<<<<<< As always check out his second youtube account too!

large (21)If you want to be flirted with over the internet but also be slightly concerned about someone’s mentality – Caspar is here for you. He is amazingly witty, funny and has many one liners which many would not think of. The first time I watched one of his videos I did think, wow this boy is really awkward and being really strange, but the more you get to watch his videos you realise he’s definitely unique. He’s one cheeky boy and he loves the ladies and the ladies love him. To check out his Tumblr >>>>>>> SOUTH AFRICAN ACCENT YUM <<<<<<< and his lovely funny youtube >>>>>>> MR AWKWARD <<<<<<<< and yet again check out his second youtube too!

large (15)The gorgeous Tanya Burr ladies and gentlemen, she does the most amazing make up tutorials – really easy to follow, beautiful colours and the videos are so cute as she is. When she vlogs about her daily life, she comes across as utterly adorable, naive and just lovely! The love that she has for her fiance Jim Chapman is beautiful and I wish I had a relationship like that in the future. She now has her own make up range out which is nail varnishes and lip glosses, you can either get them online but now Superdrug do sell them – so well done Tanya!!!! Of course she has a really lovely fun filled blog which you should check out >>>>>>> TANYA 4 JIM <<<<<<< and for all those lovely videos I was on about her youtube channel >>>>>> PRINCESS TANYA <<<<<<

large (16)Talking of Jim here he is, what a fine handsome man that he is. Absolutely polite, lovely, comes across as completely and utterly charming and using his English gentlemanliness to his advantage. He likes to challenge himself in a number of videos, talks to his viewers as best friends and we really do get involved with his life. He is a little boy at heart loving all of his comic books and toys but his love for Tanya and how proud he is, is just beautiful to watch over the vlogs. Watch out for him coming up in a new ITV2 programme with Caroline Flack in which he will be a presenter, I cannot wait finally this may show people that I know the Youtube community are great! Currently it looks like he is investigating into a blog, but here is his Tumblr >>>>>>>> BEST FRIENDS <<<<<<< and be prepared to fall in love with his youtube >>>>>> ENGLISH GENTLEMAN <<<<<<< Watch out for other youtube video channels too!

large (17)S-U-B-S-C-R-I-B-E to Marcus Butler TV!! God I love that jingle. If you watch his channel you will know what it’s all about. Marcus’ vlogs are different to all the rest and are often twice a week, he talks about day to day life, he has challenges or he dresses up as Margaret and what a lovely lady he makes. Haha! Everyone knows Marcus by his catchphrase opening up Helloooooooooooo and of course his beautiful quiff and lovely little rosey cheeks. He’s from Brighton so often hangs out with Alfie, Zoe and is good friends with Caspar and Sawyer. He is very open and honest about particular subjects in life and is there for some great advice, watch out for his 1 million subscriber rap though 😉 His website is really cool so you’ll get to learn loads about him >>>>>>>>> HELLOOOOO <<<<<<<< and his Youtube >>>>>>> SUBSCRIBE <<<<<<<< Check out his other accounts too!

louis-coleLouis, he is cool, calm, friendly and he makes you insanly jealous that you are not living life to the full. He updates his vlogs daily and yes daily he never fails. You never know where he is going to be in the world, he is so laid back and after one video you will fall in love with his style and ways. Always positive, loves life, all different cultures, his friends he meets around the world. Each video is introduced by a different viewer and his ending is of course what is shown in the photo above. If you ever want to relax whilst watching a video his are the ones >>>>>>> FUNFORLOUIS <<<<<<< here’s his lovely Tumblr as well >>>>>> LIVE THE ADVENTURE <<<<<<<<

large (19)Finally Jack is my latest edition to my favourite Youtubers I have come across, I have watched his videos before but I think the other guys took over in my life because he didn’t upload for a while. But through playlist live and he is aware of this because he has vlogged about it, he took over Louise’s blog a lot and that’s where I was like…….. I have to subscribe. He is gorgeous, funny, a gentleman and just bloody lovely. If you follow me on twitter you would know that I have had tweets from him, which is just ❤ thank you!!! His videos are seriously funny, they have a great hidden message behind them as well, has done some brilliant collabs and with this one I will put up 3 thinks as he is part of a duo as well, >>>>>> GORGEOUS SMILE <<<<<< and his >>>>>>> OMFGitsJackandDean <<<<<<<< and if you wish to see more of his lovely face Tumblr >>>>>> YUMMY <<<<<

So they were my favourite British You Tubers, yes Caspar is classified as South African but he is often put in the British category. Here are my favourites from around the world.

tumblr_static_untitled1

He is an advocate for fun, being you and living life to the full. His videos are really good fun and always positive – especially the drunken ones with Sawyer and Mamrie, if you are ever feeling down please I urge you to look at them! I think most of the internet would like for him and Troy to get together, they are just really cute together. I really did not know that Tyler is the same age as me, which shocked me as I thought he was a lot younger. He does a lot of collabs which are a lot of fun and comes up with the funniest sayings, very flirty and has a zest for life. His lovely Tumblr which is updated constantly is >>>>>>>> LILAC HAIR <<<<<<<<< and his brilliant Youtube >>>>>>> DUBAI <<<<<<<< I have only just found out he has a second Youtube so check that out if you can, more daily vlogs.

large (22)Here’s Sawyer, the boy that many love and adore! He is really funny, cheeky and often tipsy. Has done many collab videos in the past which often includes a lot of funny competitions between him and the other youtuber, his videos have a lot of games which have become memorable and to top it off he lives with Joey so he often appears in the videos in the background. He is a director so his main website is around that basis please have a look >>>>>>> FILM ME <<<<<<< AND I urge you to check out his Youtube especially the >>>>>> DRUNKEN COLLABS <<<<<<

photoTalking of people who get tipsy, welcome to Mamrie Hart who’s youtube is all to do with making alcoholic beverages with a slice of comedy. She is absolutely hilarious, her facial expressions, her one liners, the love for alcohol and of course her friendship with Hannah and Grace. I personally prefer Mamrie to the other two as I love a drink haha. My brother introduced Mamrie to me and I definitely havent looked back, you always have to watch her video’s twice because there is always a >>>>>>>> DRINKING GAME!! <<<<<<<< she also has a hilarious Tumblr too >>>>>>> HAVE A DRINK <<<<<<<

large (23)Someone who isn’t really into drinking but into being adorable and gaming is Joey Graceffa. I love him as he is exactly the same as my friend from Uni, he has the same laugh I am not even joking even my friend is freaked out by it. Of course it always helps that he is absolutely beautiful to look at, an angel until he does have a bit of drink in him (check out link with Tyler) but his videos are always a lot of fun >>>>>>> WELL HELLO THERE <<<<<< he loves his gaming so please check out his videos (not my thing but I know he does a lot of collabs with Alfie and Shane Dawson and of course his Tumblr >>>>>>> LOVE THAT BEARD <<<<<<<<

large (24)Due to Playlist Live I have only really just been introduced to Miranda Sings, I have heard about her in the past and I have never really “got it” but with the videos that I have seen, I think she is hilarious. If you want to watch something which is quirky, someone who has a difference sense of humour and takes the mickey out of herself through her beautiful self 😉 >>>>>>>>. MIRANDA IS THE ONE <<<<<<<< She is of course a character, so do not take her too seriously!!! Here is her website >>>>> PUCKER UP <<<<<<<<

Really sorry that this is such a long blog but I wanted to do something different, like I said if you have any others that I should be looking at please comment away 🙂

Lips lips and more lips

large

All girls love some sort of product on their lips, whether it is lipstick, lip balm, butter or moisturising balm there is always something there to make our lips look more appealing and of course more kissable 😉

I know personally I have gone through so many shades, styles, brands and products in order to find the best one for me. I like to take good care of my lips and throughout this blog I won’t really be making any judgements of particular brands that I love it will be generalised apart from three that I need to tell you about:

82510_lip_exfoliator_XLThis product is just the biz (god I can’t believe I said that), its so cheap and its very effective, plus in a really weird way it smells and tastes nice – hey you don’t want something on your lips to not taste nice (I like bonjella, but that’s another story!) It is roughly about the £3 mark as most ELF products are and mine has lasted a long time. Applying is very easy, nice and smooth on and then you get the ex-foliating particles over your lips which in turn smooths out your lips. It has a cocoa taste to it, but it’s not overpowering and I would definitely recommend to get those extra luscious lips for kissing that boy/girl.

257251_lI still to this day do not know how I came across this product, maybe going up and down the aisles of Superdrug thinking god I need a new lipstick but I have about 3 of these (in this shade). It did scare me first of all as it is purple (the shade is actually called – “Beauty UK Lipstick Snob 3” – what a name haha). It does have a matte feel to it which I love but it also has a slight shimmer, really smooth to go onto your lips and it stays for some time. As well as this it has a nice taste to the shade, not that overpowering cheap lipstick taste which you can get with some of the drug store brands and with this being priced at £3.49 it is a bargain. Don’t be afraid to go for a colour which you think will not suit you!

Rimmel_Kate_Lasting_Finish_Matte_Lipstick_1366733905

My final must have is my ultimate favourite lipstick. You will find out through this post that I am not really a fan of shiny things, it took me a while to even get used to shiny nails because I love the matte look. Thank god for Kate Moss and Rimmel and thank you for the shade 107. It is a beaut of a shade, it’s not too dark, it’s not too in your face and it just oozes sexy and gives you so much confidence. You may see this shade if you ever watch the gorgeous Zoella, she uses it within the Winter time. I loved using this in the Autumn and Winter time and it just gave me the confidence especially in this time when your skin is all pale and flaky (not really nice) to show off, you are you, you are here and you are pretty no matter what people say. It is great for day time and especially night time with a gorgeous black dress.

Anyway, the whole point of this blog was to talk about the different types of lip products that we all use, I may miss some out so I really do apologise but I am jut thinking off the top of my head so (remember I am not looking at the brand just the idea):

1000-Kisses_PRODUCT_01

 

Lipstains – I really do not find these effective at all, I find them really weak – they do not last long enough, the design looks amazing along with the colours which are often shown on the packaging but when they do go on your lips I find that they are just a disappointment. It could be the products that I have used and it could be the fact that I have chosen a wrong batch but I just find them to be a waste of money. Just like a felt tip pen if they decide to be stubbed or the bristles come about it’s just ridiculous. Some of them have the moisturiser at the bottom of them to add that extra shine (or to bring out the colour) but I am just not a fan.

SONY DSC

Lip Booms – I believe only certain brands do this type of lip product but quite similar to the double ended lip stain, this two includes two parts to make your lips look luscious. One end is the lipstick, usually the shiny kind in all different colours and then if you feel the need to glam up your lips even more there is the option to make your lips shimmer in the light. Often with the product of the lip stick on your lips is just enough for me, but with the added lip gloss sometimes it is beneficial but most of the time it just makes it a sticky mess or your lips look too full (you do not need the trout pout). Otherwise of course use one or the other and you are good to go!

0manicure-pink

Texturised Lips (including Glitter) – I was at the Ideal Home Show last year in London and I cannot believe how many girls and women I saw going around the centre with the glitter lips, like it was complete full on glitter fest – it had looked like they had just shoved there lips into a glitter bucket with no other make up on their face and decided (LOOK AT ME BOYS MY LIPS ARE RIGHT HERE!!) The first few that I saw I thought hey okay, they look alright then after a while of seeing red, green, blue and silver lips I did think I may want to add some tinsel around their necks. Not a fan. When I was younger the idea of glitter lipstick in the tubes which you can see on the right I probably loved, they came with a Barbie for example and it didn’t matter what colour that you chose you wanted to look special. I feel that these types of products are definitely for those stand out girls, just like the hundred and thousand inspired lips/nails, I can’t even do the nails so I cannot imagine doing the lips (great for a selfie, but imagine walking about the high street with your lips just literally dropping everywhere OR flies attacking you!)

82424_minty_lip_gloss_df_XL

 

Lip Gloss: The lip gloss, every girls go to – the shine, the effectiveness, the different colours, prices, the wands and the added extras. Each girl I am sure has their ultimate favourite, some glide on smooth, some are so sticky and thick its just unattractive, some are so light to the touch it feels like you’re wearing vaseline or lip balm and others are great just to accentuate your lips. Many lip glosses change their design over the years, there have been the additions of the light up ones (brilliant for nights out), the added mirror, the different varieties of wands, then different smells. I for one have many lipglosses and I am definitely the type who buys loads and never wears them! I cannot unfortunately find a lip gloss that I love the colour of so any recommendations would be brilliant!

IMG_1013 (800x492)

 

Lip “crayon”: As you can tell I don’t know the actual name of this type of product but once you get the correct colour for you they are very effective. Different brands have a variety of depths and colours, unfortunately just like a packet of crisps haha the product is big in design but not a lot of the actual lip crayon. What do you think of them?

1000x1000544569_10150310087344969_2103483094_n

Lip Balms: I cannot tell you how many lip balms that I have had in my life, they are kinda like kirby grips in which they keep just going missing – do you have that as well? Anyway, lip balms come in all shapes and sizes with the new introduction of the fashionable Eos lip balms which are brilliant, small, beautiful and so cute to look at to the Smackers (flavoured as shown above – great from Primark by the way) or through to the simple lip balms such as Nivea and drugstore/supermarket own branded designs. They are amazing for the quick fix, the quick moisturising of the lips and of course if you see that person you like, add it to your lips whether slightly coloured or just wanting that extra shine they’re just brilliant.

or_e6d1a5a6123183917530846

Lip Fixers: Whether it is Carmex, Vaseline or Burts Bees that you use they are the best for those lips that need that extra care. Those lips which often get affected by the cold, dried out by the sun (you never know) or of course for the SPF in which you see above.

border

What lip products do you use the most? Which lip products do you dislike the most?

We have to look after our lips, many find them the most attractive part of our body, they are there for the gorgeous smile that you have, they are there for that first kiss, for all the kisses you have with a loved one and they are there for that beaut of a selfie you are thinking of doing. But for the love of god – STOP WITH THE POUT YOU ARE NOT A TROUT.

You have to treat yourself now and again….

large (2) large
