It seems to be normal now that I write these posts on the train or a bus. Today I had to get up at 7am in order to be ready to leave for work at 9 – I have to leave my house at 9 a whole hour before work so that I can travel there. Since I got up so early I basically just grabbed any lipstick. I’m actually kind of suprised that I didn’t pick one that I’ve already used for the last 12 (lol) days. The one I went for was Revlons super lustrous lipstick in kiss me coral. This is actually really really similar to MAC So Chaud – it’s a really lovely orangey red. It’s one of the colours that I wore almost everyday during the summer – so that shows that I really liked…

So today was 99% lazy and 1% productive. I saw some family that I hadn’t seen for quite a while, but thats really all I did. My lips were feeling quite neglected and sore so I wanted a lip product with a bit of colour but was also moisturising. My product of choice was the Bourjois Effet 3D lip gloss in the colour 06 Rouge. I got this free in a little gift that Bourjois had a couple of weeks ago, and I have to say I love it – my mum actually went out and got one for herself.                         It feels soft on the lips and the colour lasts a fairly long time. Even though its a gloss, it doesn’t look extremely glossy. Its not sticky and…

Sorry for not posting yesterday and today – I basically forgot all about it and then I had work so no time to write up a full post. So Boxing Day and Friday were slightly missed out – so let’s catch up. I Also didn’t leave my house on Boxing Day so I didn’t feel the need to put anything other than my nuxe reve de miel on my lips. So yeah for day 8 my lip product was my Nuxe lip balm – see a couple of days ago for info. The 27th I went to work so I decided to sport my MAC So Chaud lip stick – I chose this because it has insanely good lasting abilities and the colour isn’t like my usual reds. I hold a lot of love for this lip stick.     …

So yesterday by the time I got in I was so tired all I wanted to do was sleep so I didn’t have time to take pictures for and write up this post. So yesterday I had another 6hr shift and since it was Christmas Eve I decided I wanted to wear a red lip, a bold one. But y’know I wouldn’t have had time to keep up a bold lip so I went for a nice red lip gloss. Sorry that this picture isn’t very clear.  The one I decided on was the Australis Mint Condition Lip Gloss – I was sent this in a swap about a month ago. Its a lovely red, not to bright and doesn’t require a lot of touch ups since the colour is quite staining. I applied it three times yesterday: morning, noon…

So, I didn’t leave enough time to do this post before I had to leave for work – so this post is currently being written on a train and I’ll possibly have to switch to a bus before this post is completed.  So today I went for a red lip, a subtle easy red lip though. I decided that since I usually reach for my kissable balm stain for my red lip I decided that I would go for a change and use my Revlon lip butter in the shade Candy Apple.  This is just such a nice soft red lip – has anyone ever described a lip colour as soft?  It’s super easy to apply and lasts a reasonably long time.  I hope no one minds work place pics for this post – if I don’t take pictures in…
