Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick Collection

Hey girrrls! 

This is going to be a quick little post about my newly acquired set of lipsticks! So I came home tonight and was told there was a parcel waiting for me, little did I know this was waiting for me...

TA DAAAA.. the Bourjois Rouge Edition Collection of lipsticks! I was so happy I think I may have skipped home in joy! I won this set in a competition and I am absolutely delighted with it! I can't wait to try every single shade out. The lipsticks claim to be enriched with 1/4 of pure laque for a radiant, glossy finish and orchard blossom extract so it glides onto the lips leaving them feeling smooth, hydrated and protected for up to 10 hours. There are 18 shades ranging from natural, peachy nudes to colour-blocking corals and classic reds. 

I will be doing a very full post with swatches and reviews on every shade so watch out for that, I also have a Primark haul coming up very soon :)

The February Wishlist

Hello lovelies!

This is my first ever wishlist and I am very excited to share with you what I've been oogling over this month! When it comes to thinking about doing one of these every single month of the year I get quite scared as I'm a student, money isn't the most readily available resource! So battling with my inner devil and angel, one telling me to buy one telling me to save, I hardly have time to come up with another 5 things, 4 weeks later! So onto the 5 things I have been lusting over to brighten up my doomy gloomy January, apologies for how beauty heavy it is!

1. Rimmel Match Perfection Fix & Perfect Primer £6.99 Boots
I have been lusting over this product for a very very very long time especially as Meg from talks about it all the time! (She is an amazing blogger, especially for UK students you should go check out her blog!) I'm just sometimes a little put off at the tiny little 30ml bottle you get for nearly £7! However I have never used a face primer before and thought this is the perfect starting point as it is raved about so much and is not too expensive!

2. Real Techniques Core Collection £21.99 Boots
Believe it or not, I do not own any of the Real Techniques brushes YET ... big emphasis on the yet! I am determined to march into boots and pick this set up, I have some vouchers left over from Christmas so really I have no reason not to!

3. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stain £7.99 Boots
I had my eye on the Clinique Chubby Sticks but I just couldn't bring myself to pay so much so when I discovered these little beauties I was over the moon! I have been lusting over the shade 'Crush'.

4. Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer £4.19 Boots
Yes I know, this is bad. This concealer has been bouncing around the blogosphere for a very long time now and I don't think I have really read anything bad about it so it's been on my mind for a while. However I don't often use concealer therefore it hasn't been an urgent 'need to go buy this now!' sort of product.

5. Knitted Rainbow Yarn Jumper £34.00 Topshop
So I desperately want a new my chunky knit jumper, I love them as they keep you warm but can be worn with so many different outfits. As soon as I set my eyes on this one, I fell in love, it is perfect for the spring season being bright and colourful but suttle enough to be worn with pretty much anything! 

So there you are my lovely friends, my February Wishlist! I hope you enjoyed it and comment to let me know that would like to see more posts like this :) This week has started off very productive for me, after a great weekend, I kicked my arse into gear yesterday and went to the gym, circuits class and football training all in one day! I also spent a few hours in the library. Just currently on my break sat in the SU typing this up for all you so enjoy!
