A shadow waits behinds us

Dress: Primark | Shoes: Peacocks | Necklace: Ebay
I've been suffering from low blood pressure since Thursday 08/11/12, and it still hasn't gone up [It's up now!]. The oddest feeling about it is that your legs do not feel as if they belong to you.. they act as if they are jelly, wobbling about. Very weird. You know what else is weird? The fact that I have low blood pressure. I like salt. When I cook anything, salt is anyone's best friend. And I like to season things well. Boiling pasta, good pinch of salt in there. Cooking sauce? Good pinch of salt in there. Before I eat? Good pinch of salt in there. Get my drift? That's a lot of salt. So I have no idea why I would have low blood pressure, but my mum used to suffer from it when she was younger, so I probably inherited it. Yay. Well it's better than high blood pressure! Will not complain.
Let me talk about my amazeballs shoes. I have been looking for this EXACT pair of shoes and whilst browsing the shops one day with my boyfriend, I find them. My size... was not found. D: How could they! So I went to ask a friend who's a sales girl there, and she called the other island Malta in Valletta if they had my size, and THEY DID. I bought them, love them. The amount of outfits I will be wearing these with will be never ending. I was going to wear this with my birthday outfit, my birthday was on the 18th, and I'm now officially 20 years old!

You're shining like a glow stick

Okay, this is probably my go to lipstick. It is EXTREMELY difficult to pick any other lipstick these days. Catrice have launched a lipstick called Ultimate Lip Glow. L'Oreal had launched a Lip Glow lipstick prior to this, but having never tried it I can't compare the two products. All I know is that this is a lipstick I would not mind owning for the rest of my life.
I have moods where I don't feel like a full on lipstick, I just want a subtle color. This fits my criteria perfectly. Catrice also claim that one color fits all, and I'm going to agree with this. It doesn't look the exact same on everybody. Would I recommend that you go ahead and buy this lipstick? YES. Why? Because asides the fact that it is amazeballs, it is also inexpensive, it's a NEON LIPSTICK, and it is great for anyone who's either starting out with lipsticks or wants just a subtle color, for work/school or everyday purposes U_U. Go out, get yourself this lipstick and feel amazing.

When all that you live on is lipgloss

I am not a fan of lipgloss, at all. I've never been. Their sticky texture, and the way your hair sticks to it, feels like it's all over the place.. Gah its a horrible invention.When I went to the Catrice & Essence event back in Summer and I got lipglosses in my goodie bag, I didn't know whether I should feel pleased or just give them away to someone. The only reason I haven't yet is because these colors are just so beautiful!

Contrary to the many lipglosses I've tried including ones from Revlon (Remember everyone raving about Peach Petal?) and I hated ALL of them, these are okay-ish! Firstly, they smell wonderful. Especially Back From Vacation, it smells like vanilla! YUM. The pigmentation is definitely not that of an ordinary lipgloss where you'd just get a slight tint of the color. They also take a while until they're sticky and make me just want to wipe them off. Whilst they're still not something I'd reach for, I would consider them every once in a while. That coming from a lipgloss hater is something! Is there a beauty product that you hate? What is it and why?

Kiss Kiss Fall In Love

A lot of people are fans of chapsticks/lip balms and I'm one of those people, even though I prefer lipsticks over lip balms. Essence recently released 4 Lip balms called Kiss Care Love, in fruity scents that smell wonderful. They give off the slightest colour, and are extremely moisturising  They also last for a good hour, which in terms of lip products isn't much, but for a lip balm it is for me. I love wearing these for work, because my lips end up becoming dry in the airconditioning, and just applying these make them feel moisturised. They can be just a tad bit sticky, but not extremely so.
  My favourite out of the 4 are 3.Fruity Licious and 4.Caribbean Sunrise. They're more moisturising than the other two, and whilst I wish 1.Fruit Crush was a little more moisturising, it sadly isn't. I would rate these 4/5. They are inexpensive, give off a good amount of product without having to go over your lips a good few times, and seem to last you for ages :)
