Wearing red at Christmas

It doesn't have to be the party season for me to rock a red lipstick, but it is something that people like to wear more around the festive period. My problem though is that I really do like wearing red lipsticks and have quite a few and have narrowed it down to my favs for the party season (one in particular that has featured a lot on the blog).

As a Sleek lipstick love I own quite a few of their lip products, but this by far is my favourite shade. It's got a hint of pink in there which is more of a fuscia hint than anything else. Being such a gorgeous mix of red and pink it really does brighten my teeth and skin. It's got great staying power, and not too drying even though it's a matte product.

A lip pencil/crayon that applies smooth, pigmented, handbag friendly and has awesome lasting power...... My list can go on and on about this product. The shade is a lovely bright red, very similar in colour with the Loreal lipstick featured. Great with food as once its on your lips, its on.

Red, red, red with a slight undertone of orange which helps to give it such a vibrant payoff when on the lips. A matte lipstick which I find I need to use a pencil with as smudges on me but really does compliment my pale porcelain skin. A nice bright red to make a statement in an all black sparkly outfit this season.

A very talked about lipstick. Sometimes called the 'perfect vintage red'. The main reason for this is the shade as it looks like such a perfect bright red. Not too much of an undertone to it but a shade that you could imagine Marilyn Monroe wearing. Would imagine it to be very flattering on all skin types and hair colours. Matte finish again.... I obviously like a matte finish. I have to prep my lips well for times when this is going to be worn, however colour lasts well and one you will get many compliments on.

Darkest of the group and is  most definitely a true red. It has slight blue undertones which help to make your teeth look whiter .... WIN! Do I need to tell you what finish this is? No, what I do need to tell you is that you can't fail with this lipstick, especially in the winter. 

Get ready for something different... HIGH SHINE! Yes you heard it right, high shine, velvety smooth liquid lipstick. Once dry it feels like a lipstick on the lips but one that be layered and layered without going all clumpy or funny looking. Also a lip products that applies in a liquid form but doesn't really come off once dry. Sip away at that champagne knowing your Christmasy lips are still very much there.

So that was 6 of my fav festive red lip products for this season. 

Would love for you to tell me yours!

Much love

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
