L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Exclusive Reds Blake Lively Lipstick

You can never have too many red lipsticks can you? Well that was the logic I ran with when I popped into Boots to take a look at the new L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Exclusive Reds collection, and I knew which red I was after straight away!

This particular lipstick was always going to be a must have for me, purely for the fact that I'm a huge GG fan (I'm talking hard core, I was watching GG on Youtube before it even aired) and Blake Lively along with her golden tresses is pure perfection! (plus she has fab taste in husbands hehe) The fact that Blake's shade happens to be a true "Me" shade was just a lucky coincidence.

It's a gorgeous pink toned bright red that's super creamy and easy to apply. As with all red shades, I always like to use a lip liner just to add extra longevity and create a smooth base. For the first coat I used a lip brush and followed with the bullet to intensify the colour. This lipstick isn't matte, it's more of a satin finish but that actually makes is sit more comfortably on the lips. It doesn't feel in the slightest bit drying or tight.

Staying power wise it's pretty good, I had a cuppa and quite a large piece of cake right after I took these pictures and the colour was still intact. I probably wouldn't wear it during a 3 course meal, but for tea and cake with the girls it's the perfect red lip.

What is your favourite "Red" lipstick? If you have yet to jump on the GG bandwagon, what have you been doing with your life? Get thee to Neflix and indulge in all six seasons, you can thank me later.

The Unconventional Winter Coat

When I was thinking about buying a new winter coat, the colour "Pink" wasn't even on my radar. It's not exactly an autumnal colour is it? But here I am about to introduce you to what I like to call my new "Princess Coat".

Isn't she a beaute? It was the shape of the coat that caught my attention first, as I'm a curvy girl I need something that cinches in at my smallest part which is my waist and then flare out over my hips. As soon as I put it on I knew it was the one, but lets just address the obvious shall we "It's Pink!" I honestly thought my days of wearing bubblegum coloured clothing were over, but I just couldn't resist, it ticked all the boxes. How cute is the faux fur collar detail? Now I will have to rethink the rest of my autumn wardrobe but if you can't pretend to be Elle Woods at 26 when can you?

(I also managed to get 25% off by buying online, DP are the best at doing discount codes)

Now I'll be wearing pink everyday, see it's not just for wednesdays!

Have you found you perfect winter coat yet? What colour is it?

Thinking About Shopping At Sephora?

It's times like these when I would kill (Walking Dead style) for access to a Sephora store, they seriously know how to do special beauty sets just in time for "that time of year".

Lucky Sephora heard my cries and made international shipping available, for a price of course but as it's nearly "that time of year" (I refuse to type the C word just yet) I thought I would put together a little list of what I think are the best limited edition sets out at the moment, as I am quite familiar with the Sephora website, maybe a bit too much!

Thinking About Shopping At Sephora?
// Sephora Favourites Give Me More Lip Set // $59 // £39 //  Link //
Lip product junkie? This set is for you, so many amazing brands combined into one set, pure beauty heaven! I may have my eye on this one myself.

Sephora Favourites Beauty Unmasked // $29 // £19 // Link //
Ever fancied trying the famous Glamglow Thirstymud Hydrating Mask but have been put off by the high price tag, now you can with this fabulous set. Plus it comes with three other highly raved about masks to try out.

Fresh Sugar Cravings Kissing Trio // $28  (USA Only)  // Link //
Sadly this little trio is only available in America, but it's such amazing value, three gorgeous highend lip balms for the price of one, you lucky yanks.

Tarte Pin Up Girl Blush Palette // $42 // £27 // Link  //
 Five amazingly pigmented blushes in one palette? Need I say more! This is sure to be a sellout. It may currently be sat in my Sephora basket, ahem.

L'Occitane Almond Indulgence Duo // $10 // £6 // Link
This duo would make the most perfect stocking stuffer and as someone who may have a slight obsession with the L'Occitane Almond range, I can completely vouch for how luxurious these products are, plus they smell divine!

First Aid Beauty Cheers To Fab Skin Set // $48 // £31 // Link //
I'm a huge FAB fan and this set is fantastic value for money, especially as it gives you the chance to try out a few of the products all at once. The eye cream in particular is a favourite of mine, it's amazing!

Sephora Favourites Draw The Line Set // $30 // £19 // Link //
Another set that is such a bargain, gals who love their liner will definitely be into this one as it has both liquid and pencil liners in one set, including Nars, Kat Von D & Stila.

Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix Set // $25 // £16 // Link
Lastly another lip set by Bite Beauty that consists four miniature lip pencils in various shades, great for girls who like to mix up their lip looks but hate the fuss of applying lipsticks.

What are you currently coveting? It is only 54 days aways so I guess it's time to start that list!
