In the spring I like to start wearing more bright but still neutral/peachy colours to go into summer (although it doesn't look like we're going to be having one in England). 

There's not really much to say apart from that I love all of these products and be sure to check some of them out and maybe treat yourself with some well earned pocket money! 

On a side note: my Bourjois blush doesn't have very good colour payoff (but the colour that it does have I love!) however when I swatched the same one in the shop it was really pigmented, so I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this with Bourjois Blush's?

Thankyou very much for reading!

I thought I would just do a quick post about my favourite blogs at the moment and I have come up with 5 so (in true xfactor style) in no particular order...

I absolutely love this blog and have a huge style crush on mariannan! I always leave her blog lusting after her clothes and home decor. I could honestly (and probably have) look through this blog for hours! 

Not only does Esteé have an amazing blog but also a youtube channel. She is absolutely hilarious and I love how this comes across in her writing as well! Esteé's blog is mainly beauty orientated and offers lots to look at! Definitely go and have look! 

This blog feature everything from celeb gossip, uni advice, travel advice to clothing. You name it and it's probably on there, need I say more?

This has been a recent find and may I say what a great blog! It is based around money saving tips and everything related! There are some really great tips and tricks on there that I have honestly found really helpful! Not enough people know about this blog!! 

This is slightly different to the ones above. It features sort of mini articles (I don't know how else to describe them) about anything from love to everyday problems (that are often "love" orientated). Titles include 'The Friendship', 'The Hangover' and 'The Cinema'. Everything she writes is witty, clever and most of the time very true and I look forward to every post! I cannot recommend it enough! 

First things first I am no skin care expert; I usually just slap on whatever moisturiser has the word 'hydrate' on it. However recently I have had really dry patches on my face due to the weather and my skin always felt really tight and dry after using my cleanser (boots botanics skin brightening cleanser)! So I decided to do a little research into the best cleansers for dry skin and Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser kept popping up. Anyway after reading a few reviews I thought I'd give it a try.

Ponds it a very old brand and has been around for decades but don't let this put you off! The consistency of the cleanser is very thick and a little greasy. It says you can remove it using a cotton pad or with warm water. Do not use a cotton pad if you try this cleanser! Warm water and a flannel works ten times better than a cotton pad and leaves your skin feeling much cleaner. It doesn't have a strong smell and is really soothing on your face. 

After using this cleanser for a couple of weeks now I have notice an improvement in my skin and it feels a lot more hydrated. I would definitely recommend this cleanser for people with dry skin but if you have oily skin I would opt for something less thick. The texture may not be for everyone but personally I think it leaves your skin feeling smooth, clean and far from tight and dry! It's also very affordable which is always a plus! Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser is available for £4.49 at Boots.  

Thankyou for reading!  

After A LOT of hype around these in the blogging and youtube world they have finally arrived in England and last week I got my hands on one. They are described as a "Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips" and they are definitely this. To start with I LOVE the packaging. The quilted pattern, see through top...everything! 

There is a really good range of colours from hot pinks to nudes. I decided to go for 'Peach Parfait', a peachy/pinky colour (believe it or not).

This colour has really pretty gold sparkles in it but that isn't obvious when on (which personally is a good thing). They're very moisturising and not sticky at all. I think these are quite unique - they are very moisturising and balm like, yet have amazing pigmentation! Some of the brighter ones are just as good if not better than some lipsticks.

The only drawback for me about these is the price. They retail for £7.99 and personally for a lip butter I think this is quite steep. Many lipsticks aren't that expensive. However because they are different to anything that's already out I can forgive them for this! 

Revlon Lip Butter's are available at Boots and most drugstores.

Have you got your hands on any of the lip butters? What are your thoughts on them?

Thankyou for reading!
