My Current Favourite Drug Store Lipsticks

So, over the last two years, i've become some what of a lipstick/lipgloss hoarder, I honestly just can't help myself. I thought i'd do a little post on some of my favourites at the moment. This is a post that i've seen a lot of people do recently(i'm guessing it's down to Zoella's post?) and being the lipstick loving lady that I am, I thought i'd throw my 10 pence in.
Just a little apology for the photography, it will get better.
The first lipstick is actually the most expensive in this post, but let me tell you, it's well worth it! I found myself with Max Factor's Lipfinity in the shade #340 when my fantastic mumma received it in a free gift box after she spent a few pennies in boots! Hands down this is one of the longest lasting lip colours I have ever owned! As you can see above, it comes with a lipgloss/lipstick and a top coat. You first apply the "lipgloss" which after about 30 seconds dries to a lipstick, does that make sense? I hope it does! Then you go ahead and apply the top coat, which just feels like a lovely, moisturising lip balm! This shade is beautiful and perfect for spring/summer time! It's a lovely peachy, coral shade that I think it would suit most skin tones. There are so many shades available, I can't wait to get more! These little bad boys are available from boots for £10.99 each.

Next up is a lipstick that everyone needs in their handbag! Rimmel's Lasting Finish lipstick in shade #206, Nude Pink. Such an easy shade to wear and the shine is incredible! Deffo more of a subtle, natural shade but I think it's still a really flattering colour and again, a shade that would suit pretty much anyone! There are definitely hints of peach in the mix but still a very pretty pink. Not brilliant staying power but super easy to apply so popping it in your handbag is a must. Grab yourself this shade now for just £4.99.

This dark red/pink shade is probably my all time favourite lipstick! I find that for the price, £2.99, Collection lipsticks are such great quality. They're super pigmented and last a fair while too.  Although I do find that the shine wears off after a while but the colour seems to stay put. This one in particular is from their Gothic Glam range which consists of three shades, which include this one Seduction #1, a dark plum, Scorned #2 and a deep blood red shade, Revenge #3. I wore this a lot during winter but I find that it's also a great colour to wear on a night out through the summer months for something a bit more bold and daring! These lipsticks have a lovely sweet scent to them, i'm not sure if that's valuable information for you when choosing a lipstick but I just think it's an added bonus, haha! They're very creamy in texture and aren't drying at all! A complete bargain at £2.99!

Another Collection lipstick now from they're Lasting Colour Range. This is quite a daring shade for me as it's super orange(for me anyway, but it's nothing compared to Topshop's infrared) and of course, orange tones bring out the yellow in your teeth, yuck! But if i'm having a particularly good "teeth day" I love it! From the shade to the subtle golden shimmer it has in it, it's a beautiful summer shade for those who like a pop of colour. Another bargain at just £2.99.

Last but not least is another nude shade, this time from Rimmel's Lasting Finish By Kate collection, in the shade #03. To be honest, I can't even remember when I bought this, but recently i've found myself reaching for it in the morning's. Another super easy, subtle shade to wear on a day to day basis. It has a super creamy texture and applies really evenly and again, this lipstick has a lovely sweet scent! I'm definitely going to be ordering some more shades from Kate Moss' line for Rimmel, i'm all for a glossy, smooth finish!

Quote of the Week #40

"Storms don't last forever."

This is something i've always tried to tell myself. Sometimes you just have crap days, in fact sometimes you just have crap weeks and maybe the reason for that is beyond your control, but you need to put this little quote to the front of you mind. As always, if you're having a bit of a rubbish time at the moment, save this to your phone and set it as your wallpaper so you'll have a constant reminder that it will be okay.

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you enjoy your day!

Polyvore Style Board | #35

Dress | Sunnies | Sandals | Headband | Bag | Socks

I can't believe it's been almost two months since my last polyvore post! How did that even happen?! In all honesty, I don't think anyone's missed this post, but I really enjoy writing it so it's back and it's staying!

How perfect is this little skater dress? From the collar to the skater skirt, it's just a dream. I think this is one of those items that could be easily dressed up or down, but today I decided to keep it casual and more for day time wear, but I think you could easily pair it with some killer heels and some chunky statement jewelry for a more glammed up evening look! Grab it in the Lipsy sale now for just £21!

With these posts, I like to try and keep everything "in budget" and relatively affordable, but these Tom Ford sunnies were way too beautiful to leave out this week. Coming in at around £230, they're deffo more of a splurge when you've saved up some of your pennies. On the website, the colour is "pearl opal yellow" which in my head translates to "pretty, pretty, pearly colour," and, "why don't I have the money to buy you?"

If you'd have asked me a year ago if I liked these sandals, i'd have told you to shove 'um, if you've been a reader for a long time you'll remember this hate post I wrote about them. But, a year on and having to see these sandals on every other person's feet, i've actually grown to like them and now fancy a pair for myself, strange how the table's turn, isn't it? If I remember correctly, I think I said that the JuJu jelly sandals should stay locked away in the attic or something silly like that, but now i'm reaching for the ladder to bring them down! They're just so effortlessly cool and from what I can remember as a child, super comfortable! This pair in particular are currently available on Asos for £25.

I'm also most certain i've blogged about this little headband before. I really do believe that even a simple little floral headband/crown can make your outfit 100% more summery! Don't you? This one in particular is just £14 at Accessorize.

Let us all just take a few moments of our time, to admire the glory that is this daisy handbag.. Me + daisies = true love, c'mon with a name like Maisie I can hardly avoid them can I? Speaking of which, I met a little Scottish girl called Maisie yesterday, we shared a moment of shock. Nasty Gal have so many great pieces on their online store, so it's no surprise that this handbag is one of theirs. You can grab this right now for £45.

So what do you think of this outfit? Would you rock it? Let me know!

You Left Your Mark On Me | OOTD


Top - Camden (similar) | Skirt - Primark | Sandals - Peacocks | Sunnies - Primark | Watch - Claires

Another incredibly windy day, so hiding in a door frame seemed appropriate. It's okay, soon it'll be winter and i'll be able to get back into tights and trousers! I grabbed this skirt in the sale at Primark for something ridiculous like £3.50?! The crop top is a firm favourite of mine, Mr Nolan bought it for me when he was in Camden last year, he knows me so well! It was actually our 4 year anniversary yesterday, aww.

I've been wearing these sandals a lot lately, when I first bought them it was because my work shoes were giving me horrendous blisters, and at first I hated them and deemed them "the ugly shoes" but now i've really grown to like them, plus they're super comfortable and have a teeny tiny heel, this girl needs all the extra height she can get!

Sorry i'm not very chatty today, mid week blues and all that! But here's a funny one, Nolan took these photos for me, as always bless him, and he began shouting things out like, "lean against the wall" "put your leg on the side" and "pout, POUT!" so I did, haha! Please note that I have the smallest lips in the history of ever, so my pout is very.. not pouty haha! I hope everyone's week is going well! Have you picked up any bargains lately?
