My Current Favourite Lip Products

autumn-lipsticks-1

There are some amazing lip products on the market right now but I’ve found a few that I’ve seriously been loving over the past few months, and as Autumn is well and truly underway I’d thought I’d let you have a peak at what lip products I’ve been using.

autumn-lipsticks-2

No7 Matte Lip Crayon in shade Raspberry Red

This shade is just the most gorgeous deep pinky red colour, perfect for day wear and not so in your face as a pillar box red.  I found this lightweight chunky lip pencil so easy to use, it glides on smoothly and gives a beautiful matte finish which stays put all day.  The colour is highly pigmented and doesn’t dry out my lips, so for a matte lip product it’s actually quite moisturising. With it being a crayon I also found that I didn’t need to use a lip liner, an added bonus if you’re in a hurry!

MUA LUXE Velvet Lip Lacquer in shade Dash

This shade is just a gorgeous deep berry shade and will suit most skin tones, I absolutely love it. The velvet lip lacquer comes with a sponge applicator making it really easy to apply the colour and it just glides onto your lips. It is super pigmented and dries ever so quickly into the most beautiful silky matte finish. Oh my word, once this stuff is on your lips, it’s on for the day, there wasn’t even the slightest bit of colour left behind on my coffee cup! It’s budge proof! Well at least until I physically take it off with makeup remover at the end of the day. It also doesn’t dry out my lip which is fabulous. So if you’re after a lip product that has amazing staying power and still looks as good at the end of the day as when you applied it in the morning, then check out these lip lacquers, and at only £3 they are such a great bargain!

4U2 Lipaholic in shade 11

This shade is a beautiful warm toned browny nude shade, so it’s absolutely perfect for everyday wear. This lipstick gives an incredible creamy finish and is super easy to apply, it just glides on so nicely and took just one coat to give my lips a beautiful wash of colour. I was seriously impressed with how long the lipstick lasted, only having to top up once through the day. It feels super nourishing on my lips, so it doesn’t dry them out unlike some budget lipsticks.  4U2 are based in LA and will be available in the UK soon but you can check them out via their Twitter page.

NYX Butter Lipstick in shade Hunk

This beautiful creamy lipstick is just the most amazing moisturising lipstick I’ve ever had and this shade is a gorgeous plum colour so it’s perfect for Autumn. My lips always feel super soft and hydrated after using this lipstick, it’s a bit like having a highly pigmented lip balm which is just what I need in the colder months. It’s such a lovely lipstick to apply and just glides on really smoothly. This has to be one of my all time favourite lipsticks!

Barry M Lip Liner in shade Mulberry

With a few of my lipsticks I do need to apply a lip liner before putting them on and it can be quite difficult trying to find a lip liner which isn’t so hard that it’s not going to drag the delicate skin on my lips. This lip liner from Barry M is just what I’ve been looking for, it has a really velvety soft texture, it wasn’t too soft that I don’t get a nice precise line and not too hard that I’m scratching every bit of skin on my lips.

PS Pro Longwear Lip Liner Pen in shade Ultimate Nude

This lip liner pen from Primark is absolutely wonderful, it acts like a lip stain! So I’ll start off by filling my lips in first with this felt tip liner and then apply my favourite nude lipstick. The liner has such amazing staying power, it basically lasts all day, and the lipstick leaves my lips with a creamy smooth finish. What a perfect combination!

Thanks for reading. What lip products have you been loving?

I’ve finally made the move from Blogger to WordPress

Rosie Loves Life

One of my goals for October was to get a new layout for my blog because the one I was using was a really basic layout on Blogger which I couldn’t do much with. I’d not been happy with it for a while but it was a simple and easy way to get myself into blogging almost a year ago.

Then a couple of months ago people started tweeting me saying they’d been trying to leave a comment on a blog post and were just getting an error message and Blogger wouldn’t allow them to post a comment.  On some occasions people had been kind enough to take the time and leave a comment but Blogger wouldn’t allow me to reply, I was getting so frustrated that people would think I was ignoring them!

There were various other issues I’d been having when I was trying to type up a new blog post and I was getting in a right state about the whole thing! Thankfully I knew it was nothing I had done, after speaking to a few people I managed to find out it was a Blogger problem and I wasn’t alone. I honestly didn’t know what to do. Should I wait and hope Blogger sorted it out, should I download a new layout only to find these problems continued or should I move my blog to a new platform altogether?

Well last week I finally took the plunge to have my blog moved from Blogger to WordPress so I got Fiona to do the whole process for me, including a wonderful new layout. I’m so glad she was able to do this for me as I’d never have been able to move my blog across by myself and I’d probably have ended up losing the whole lot, so I really can’t thank her enough. I’m so pleased that I’d I decided to do this as from what I can see so far there will be so much more I can do on WordPress that I couldn’t before, plus I have all of my contact and social media icons in one place, which will make it much easier for people to find them.

All I need to do now is to learn how to use WordPress properly and all of it’s different functions but I already know I’ve done the right thing, I just wish I’d done it sooner.

There are a few things that still need a bit of work and some old blog posts definitely need a little attention but I can do these over the course of the next few weeks. One thing I do know is that I need to pull my finger out and start writing up some even better posts because looking back at some of my earlier ones it made me realise how awful they were. Never mind, we all learn from our mistakes, but it’s what I do from now on that really matters, so please bear with me while I get to grips with using a completely different platform.

I hope you like my new blog as much as I do!
