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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
