My first Charlotte Tilbury purchase.

Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect

Last month we headed to London, and I visited the Charlotte Tilbury store for the first time (how pretty is the store?). After lusting after all of her products for the longest time I decided it was the day to make my first purchase from Charlotte Tilbury. The product I decided to pick up was one of her lipsticks from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. range in the shade Bitch perfect.

The shade of the lipstick is completely different to something I would usually go for, but after trying the browny-nude shade on my lips I just had to have it. It's the perfect neutral as far as I am concerned.

All of the K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks have a special unique ingredient in them, the lipstick tree, an anti-oxidant designed to protect your lips from the everyday environment resulting in soft, non-dried-out lips. I hands down agree with this, the Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick leaves my lips feeling incredibly moisturised.

The K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks are also said to be long-lasting, and they really are. I can easily put the lipstick on in the morning on a working day and only need to top up once. When the lipstick does start to fade it is incredibly natural too, meaning you don't have to worry about patchy lips.

I have wanted to try a few products from Charlotte Tilbury for what feels like forever now, and I am so glad this was my first purchase. I love the lipstick and the shade on my complexion. I can't wait to pick up some more shades, and try some of her other products. I have been eyeing up Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Foundation.

Lush Oxford Street Haul.

Walking into the Lush Oxford Street store was insane, I still can't quite get over how big and amazing the store was! Of course, visiting Lush meant a haul happened, so today I thought I would share with you all what I picked up.

The first product I had to pick up was the Down the Rabbit Hole bubble bar, a gorgeous bright bubble bar with an awakening citrus scent. This one is a Oxford Street exclusive and one I really wanted!

I also picked up the Melting Marshmallow Moment bath melt, purely for the smell - it smells like a candy shop. Alongside this the Oxford Street exclusive Cherry Blossom bubble bar went into my basket with the Pearl massage bar. I have never tried any of their massage bars before so I can't wait to give this one a go.

I couldn't resist stocking up whilst I was there so I also got two more of the current Lush Oxford Street exclusives and one I have wanted to try forever but for some reason I have never got round to actually purchasing.

I went for the Over the Rainbow bath bombSpring Bunny bath bomb, and the Yoga Bomb bath bomb.

My boyfriend also got me the large Rosie gift set for my birthday so I am extremely well stocked up on Lush bath products, but as usual I cannot wait to get trying them all!

5 lipsticks I can't stop wearing.

Lipsticks are one of those products that can completely change a look in an instant, whether it's a neutral lip colour or a much brighter pink, red or even purple. Today I thought I would share with you the 5 lipsticks I can't stop wearing lately.

First up is The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick in the shade 03. This is a lipstick completely different to what I usually go for, a glittery pink shade that completely brightens up any makeup look. I love wearing it in the Spring/Summer to add that extra bit of colour. As always from The Body Shop lipsticks, the formula is smooth ensuring it is easy to apply and lasts about 2-3 hours before needing a touch-up.

Next up is the Sephora Cream Lip Stain in shade 03. This is a gorgeous deep pink shade with hints of red (see my full review here). The formula is incredibly long-lasting, but still very comfortable on the lips. Again this is a great one for injecting a bit of extra colour into your makeup.

The Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer in the shade Cherry Pop is another one I can't stop wearing. This lipstick is an incredibly moisturising formula, and one that doesn't cling to any dry patches if you're like me and sometimes struggle with dry lips. The shade itself is a deep red with strong tones of dark pink mixed in. The lipstick also seems to last a bit longer than your average lipstick too, which I love. (See my review here.)

The H&M Lip Colour in the shade Powder Puff is another lipstick to make my top 5, but this time a shade more on the neutral side of things. It is a gorgeous light pink shade, the my lips but better shade. I love how moisturising the formula feels on my lips but unfortunately do find the formula doesn't last very long and wears off near enough as soon as I have a drink. 

The last lipstick I can't stop wearing is another one from the Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer collection, this time in the shade Melon Pop. The shade of this one is another neutral one, one I can only describe as a peach pink. Again the formula is very moisturising and very comfortable on the lips. I would love to own every shade from this collection, that's how good they are!
