Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in ‘Coral Blossom’ – Review + Swatches

23 Aug

Hi lovelies!

Just a quick post today on a lippie I’ve been loving lately, Tarte’s Amazonian Butter Lipstick in ‘Coral Blossom’.


It’s a gorgeous, ever so slightly shimmery coral colour, that is a shine finish and is one of the most buildable lip products I’ve ever tried.


You get 0.1oz of product in the full size for $17, which comes to about £12.50 once you pop the exchange rate on.

This product looks pretty good with my slightly more tanned skin in comparison to my regular skin tone. It has a little bit of a tangerine feel to it, and so I think that paired with bronzer it looks gorge.

It lasts a good amount of time if you’re not eating, about five hours or so, but as soon as you eat it needs reapplication. The good thing is that you can just add more product instead of having to remove it all and reapply. It’s also dead minty. You can’t miss it!!!

This product is a part of the 2015 Give Me Some Lip Set, currently on Sephora’s website for $25.

That’s all for today, I hope you have a good day/evening, wherever you are!

Sephora’s ‘Give Me Some Lip’ Kit + Wet & Wild Palettes

2 Oct

Hello lovelies!

In case you were wondering, no I didn’t go on a sneaky trip to the US in order to be let loose in a Sephora. One of my best friends Kent lives in NJ but studies at Royal Holloway. I asked her to pick up a few things for me and she brought it back and then gave it all to me as a birthday gift! WOWEE! (Thankyou Kent!)

The first thing that she picked up was from Sephora and it’s called the ‘Give Me Some Lip’ Sampler Kit. Most of these brands can be accessed in the UK, but for 5 deluxe minis and one full-size lip product for $25, there isn’t a comparable deal. 😦
I’ll pop in some pictures so you can see what the products are. At the moment my favourite is the Laura Mercier Lip Gloss, but it changes nearly every day!

ImageImageImageImageImageImageEeeeep! A lot of those shade have ‘cult’ status among beauty bloggers, and from first impressions, I can see why. The only one I have used more than twice is the Tarte LipSurgence, just because it’s very ‘glitzy’ as the name suggests, and I haven’t been out on the toen lately (hahahahaha). That Laura Mercier one is like silk, honestly….sorry bank balance.

I also asked Kent to see whether she could find the Wet & Wild Comfort Zone palette, and she found it and picked up The Silent Treatment trio too!

ImageOh! I almost forgot that I got a new EOS Lip Balm in Strawberry Sorbet. And everyone get ready to laugh as I show you the photo…

ImageYou see the things us bloggers have to deal with on a day to day basis?!?! I’m so annoyed with myself right now! 

Oh well! Lectures are now back in full swing, and after a French Grammar Lecture today that I kind of struggled in to say the least, I’m determined to get better at my subject this year! 

Also, I’ve been obsessed with Lorde recently. She’s set to be the next big thing in the US, and it won’t be long before the UK catches on. Tennis Court is amazing if you’re into electro-indie-relaxed music. She’s also only sixteen!

Have a lovely day/evening, wherever you are!
