Rimmel Lip Lovin'

Ever since i bought my first lipstick I have been obsessed with buying more. I've heard so many great things about the Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks that I picked up a couple and even a Rimmel lipliner to test out with them. I am in LOVE.
I wanted to stay in the nude shades but I picked out a couple of matte finishes to make them different to what I have already.

The first one I got and instantly fell in love with is shade 38 (the pinker one of the two.) Its the perfect matter 'your lips but better' shade. Paired with the 'East End Snob' lip liner i bought as well it creates the perfect everyday nude lip.

I also got the shade 03 which is quite similar to 38 but it has more of a brown undertone to it. It looks lovely with a brown smokey eye and a bronzed face. I've discovered that using the lip liner all over the lips first before applying 03 also gives it a lovely subtle hint of pink underneath.

The main thing I've noticed with these lipsticks is how long lasting they are! They really do stay on all day and I'll definitely be picking up more and more! They're so reasonably priced as well at only £5.49. I also really recommend the lip liner as you can wear it on its own or paired with either of these lipsticks (plus it's a bargain at £3.99!)

Forever Repurchasing

There will always be certain products that I can't live without. For today's post I thought I would share some of these with you.

When it comes to taking my makeup off I want to make it as quick and as easy as possible and with this Garnier Cleansing Water it certainly helps! I just take a small amount onto a cotton pad and it removes all makeup really quickly. You can also use it to remove eye makeup as its made for sensitive skin and has no perfume.
This concealer does everything. It covers blemishes, redness, dark circles and even highlights if you have shade 1 or 2. I've tried other concealers but I always end up coming back to this one. It's cheap and lasts for ages as well making it even better.
I will always repurchase Maybelline Mascaras. They all hold a curl, lengthen and adds volume to your lashes really well, especially this one. This one especially adds length really well which is the first thing I look for in a mascara! Its on offer for £5.99 in Boots at the moment so definitely go and try it out!
Recently I've been loving using bronzer to add colour to my face, especially on a hot day. I've tried a few but I've always come back to Benefit Hoola. This bronzer is quite pricey but its definitely worth repurchasing because it is just so good. The colour isn't to 'orangey' and you only need the smallest amount making it last a long time.
I always repurchase the smaller bottle of this as its easy to travel with. I love dry shampoo and COLAB is definitely the best. It adds texture and volume as well as 'reviving' your hair for yet another day without leaving any annoying dry white flakes.
On another note... Thank you so much Pipdig for my lovely new blog design! I really do recommend pipdig if you are looking for a new blog template, Phil is so so so helpful!

Spending Way To Much In Lush Oxford Street

I have always loved lush a little too much. I can't walk past a lush shop without going n and buying something. I just love it. So when Lush opened its biggest store in the world on Oxford Street I knew I had to go! I went yesterday for the first time and oh my goodness it's heaven. I could of bought one of absolutely everything but luckily my mum was with me to stop me from ruining my bank balance!
Most of the products I bought are exclusives to the oxford street store but some of them are now available online or even in other stores now.

The first thing I picked up is the Layer Cake Soap.
There were sooo many new soaps available in the store but this one grabbed my attention. 
I don't really like strong woody or really sweet scents so the most of the soaps I picked up and put straight back but not this one! Layer Cake soap smells and looks exactly like a fruit pastille lolly which is just amazing. I love fruity/citrusy scents so I knew I had to get this. Its £3.40 for 100g and I picked up a pre wrapped block off just over 100g at £4.90 so its reasonably priced.
I then picked up Refresher Shower Jelly for £3.50 (100g). I love Lush shower jellys so when I saw this bright gold one I put it straight in my basket before I even smelt it. I'm so happy I did buy it though because it smells exactly like fruity lemon.

Next I got Big Bang Bubble Bar which is still an Oxford Street exclusive but its so pretty! I can't wait to use this as I think it'll turn my bath a really bright blue and hopefully it produces loads of bubbles!
I also picked up the Little Dragon Bubble Bar which is still an exclusive to the store. I saw this when I was on my way to the till and I couldn't resist it! You use it like a bubble wand were you swirl it in the bath and it produces bubbles! You use it more than once making it well worth your money!
I also got the Green Bubbleroon which has been 'ravamped' and looks so much brighter now!

I spent most of my money on bath bombs. There were soo many to choose from but the staff were friendly and helpful and they helped me pick the best ones!
I got the Frozen Bath Bomb which is now available online and in other stores. Being based around one of my favorite films I obviously had to get it! It has grapefruit and rose in it and the it smells oh so good. I can already see myself buying more of these!
What really sold me on the Yoga Bomb is that its full of colours inside! I wasn't really sure on the smell of it so a lovely woman in the shop showed me what it looks like in water and I was sold, its soo pretty when the colours run into the water. It's not just orange!
I already knew I had to get the Intergalactic bomb after seeing so many people rave about it, hopefully i won't be disappointed!
I got the Experimenter on a bit of a whim because after seeing so many people talk about it, I was a little disappointed when I smelt it. I still bought it though because it  looks so colourful!
 I got the Golden Slumbers bath bomb which is still an exclusive. This was being demoed in store and after seeing the golden glittery water it went straight in my basket!
I also got the Sacred Lotus bath bomb which is so crumbly but smells amazing and I can't wait to use it. The last bath bomb I got is the Guardians Of The Forest bomb. I believe this is still exclusive. I can't wait to use this because it smells so lovely and I can't wait to have a green a bath!

The last two products I got are two bath oils. There were soooo many to choose from but I restricted myself and bought 2!
I got Orange Blossom and Melting Marshmallow Moment. A lovely guy in the shop recommended these two and after saying how relaxing and calming they are, I had to buy them! All the bath oils are £2 each so you can't really can't go wrong!

I also bought myself the exclusive oxford street tote bag to carry all my products in as I was going to be walking around London for the rest of the day.

I really recommend going to Lush in Oxford Street if you are a massive Lush fan like me, its such a good experience  and everyone who works there are so lovely and friendly and are always willing to give you help or advice. I really can't wait to back at christmas time because I bet the shop will look amazing, let alone what new products they might have!
