Favourite Nude Lipsticks

On a day to day basis, my favourite lipsticks are usually pinky toned nudes. And I have a large variety to choose from! Somehow every time i'm in an airport or a department store or even sometimes a supermarket I see another colour which needs to be added to my collection... So I thought I would share my top 5 with you!

Kylie Jenner Matte Liquid Lipstick: Koko K

I bought a variety of Kylie Jenner Lipkits a while ago, including Koko K, Posie K, Candy K and 22. I really love them, and think the consistency and longevity is absolutely fab. For a normal day though, Koko K is incredible. I love it! The only thing to mention though, is that you have to make sure your lips are well exfoliated and moisturised before you apply it, otherwise I find by the end of the day your lips look a bit flaky and messy.

Rosie for Autograph Lipstick: Lady Rose

I love picking up this lipstick just because it has rose gold packaging. Oh yes, and the lipstick is awesome. This shade is Lady Rose. Classic colour, great finish, easy to reapply throughout the day, doesn't stick to your teeth. Winner!

Sleek Gloss Me: Angel Falls

This gloss is a lot lighter than all the other shades in this post, but I really like it. Considering that it's such an affordable brand, I think the colour payoff is fantastic, and it really isn't very sticky; which is a deal breaker for me!

Mac Satin Lipstick: Faux

I think everyone has a lipstick that gets left in the bottom of the handbag "just in case" and this is mine. It is my perfect nude, the satin finish is one of my favourites, as you get good colour opacity, with a semi-matte finish, but it is quite moisturising. I love wearing this lipstick on it's own for a polished finish to my makeup, or glamming it up with a swipe of gloss over the top!

Rimmel Kate Lipstick: 08

I'm not normally a fan of cheaper lipsticks, they never seem to last quite as well as higher end ones. However I do like this one, so much so I accidentally bought it twice. The finish is nice, you do need to put a couple of layers on for a solid colour, and you need to be careful as it seems to get on my teeth quite a bit. But, for about £6 you can't argue, it looks great.


I hope you like seeing my favourite nude lipsticks (and gloss!) if you're into pinky nude shades, let me know if I need any others...
Also as part of my refresh, I would love to get some new post ideas, so if there is anything you would like to see on my blog in the future, leave me a comment letting me know!

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

I have been a long time fan of beauty blenders, but I can't justify buying an original one, as they don't really last that long, compared to a brush... However, I am a huge fan of the Real Techniques sponges, as I think their shape is spot on - with a delicate point at one end, so you can really work into the inner corners of your eyes and around your nose, and a flat edge at the other to blend foundation across your cheeks.

I think the finish I get from this blender is great, and I feel I use less product when I use a blender than I do when I use my regular brush. The only thing I don't like is cleaning them. If anyone knows a miracle product that can save me a lot of time I would love to know, because I can never get them perfect again!

Let me know what you think of these blenders. Personally I think for about £6 they are fab, and just as good as the £16 you will be paying for the original one!

Instant Whites

I was rather excited a few weeks ago as I was sent a pack of Instant Whites 7 Day Teeth Whitening System to try. For those who know me, I am always drinking tea, so stained teeth is somewhat of a problem that I am always trying to combat!

Unlike a lot of teeth whitening kits, this one was quick and easy to use, after brushing my teeth before bed, all I needed to do was push down on the end of the stick to release the whitening fluid and rub it all over my teeth - fab!

I've used quite a lot of whitening treatments before, some of which have worked but a lot have left my teeth feeling really sensitive, which wasn't ideal - however these ones didn't hurt or tingle in the slightest! They definitely helped them get whiter as well, although I'm not sure they went the 9 shades whiter advertised. Probably more along the 4/5!
