Sweetest Berry on the Vine

When I found out that Kate Moss was collaborating again with Rimmel, I was excited. And like most of you, I fell in love with the lipstick Kate Moss was wearing - Lipstick 107. Now, I went on a search at my local drug-store that would actually store the Kate Moss lipsticks, and of all the lipsticks, only the 107 wasn't stocked. They had only just brought the lipsticks in and 107 was not in stock. HOW! So I went to ask at the counter, they looked for the lipstick for me, and then they couldn't find it. So, they wrote down my details in case the lipstick would come in. Never happened!
So I went to trusty old e-bay and found it. Days later, my lipstick arrived and as excited as I was, the lipstick fails really badly.
The colour is absolutely gorgeous mind you. I mean, you can see from the above swatches, that this berry colour is a must have.The colour pay off was also great but here's a list of things I had a problem with:
- The lipstick ended up being patchy. 
- It was drying 
- Made my lips feel grainy
- Didn't last longer than 2 hours and then left an outline around my lips
I personally don't think the lipstick is worth the hype at all. Either, I just got a bad lipstick or the lipstick is actually like that. The colour is absolutely gorgeous, but I don't think its worth the grainy feeling or the patchy look. Will I be wearing it again? Yes, but I'll be carrying with me small make up wipes to re-apply it each time like a crazy person.

Baby's on Fire

Catrice Ultimate Lip Color - Light The Fire
This particular lipstick is not for me. Sounds quite negative, but just keep reading. Whilst the lipstick is pigmented, the texture is that of a wet lipstick and to me that means that the lipstick is going to be sliding off everywhere. To add to that, this lipstick is a bit sparkly and frosty. I love my matte and creme lipsticks, but when it comes to frosts and lipsticks with glitter particles in it..no thank you.
The colour itself isn't actually a problem for me, even though it's an orange-red which typically doesn't suit me, but this one did. I definitely think it looks good on pale and pink toned skin.
I love how the lipstick looks in the tube, especially it's shape. The shape actually enables you to apply this evenly and easily. It's just a pity it's a sparkly lipstick! Other than that, I don't really have any qualms about this. I can't tell you how long this lasts either, because I've never really worn it out. But I reckon it would last a good two or three hours without needing re application.

I'll always be around you

Blazer: New Look Blouse: New Look Skirt: Made by Mum Shoes: New Look Necklace: Promod
Last Sunday, my boyfriend went out to spend the day together. It was a really nice sunny day, and we hadn't had a proper sunny day in ages! It was absolutely lovely so went to take some photos of my outfit obviously! I'm not too sure about the blazer with that skirt because of the different variations in blue. My outfit is basically compromised of all navy asides my blouse but with different shades! I quite like it to be honest.
Then went to have a dear old browse in Miss Selfridge, my current favorite shop. I was actually hoping to find a particular dress, but its not been brought in yet.. Oh well. Then went to a bar/restaurant here and ate pizzotto and sweet chili paprika fries! Finished the night off with my current favorite series: David Attenborough Africa! Did any of you ever see any of his narrations? Honestly, highly recommend that you should!
