Balmi Lip Balm!

So recently i was looking for a new lip balm, i suffer from quite dry lips especially in the summer and winter. I was getting a little bit fed up of Vaseline as it does not look very nice on your lips and just looks greasy and gross. I was browsing through boots and found a lip balm by 'balmi' which i recognised from some beauty youtubers videos ( i think mainly from Sprinkle of Glitter). So i decided to give it a bash and i think that it was about £4.99, which isnt too bad but for a lip balm is a little on the pricey side if it isnt all that great. 
I bought the strawberry version in a square container from boots. 

I have had it for about 2 weeks now and i absolutely love the texture, scent and finish that it i gives to my lips. My lips and now moisturised and healthy! However, when i first started using it i was using it very frequently throughout the day, i found that this caused it to be used up quickly which was disappointing as it was five pounds. But i have not started only applying it in the evenings before i go to bed and in the mornings before i leave, i find that this is much better as it means it will last longer and still work its magic. 
It claims to give your lips long lasting daily care and protection, even for sensitive skin. It also claims to leave your lips moisturised, soft and super smooth. I totally love this lip balm and i think that it lives up to its claims and i would defiantly recommend this product to a friend. 

I think that i will repurchase this item once it has run out as it is overall a very good product, after i apply i before bed when i wake up my lips still feel soft and moisturised which is great! I also love the packaging as it is so unique and is defiantly my favourite lip balm at the moment! 

My favourite beauty products (high street)

Hi, so this is my first blog post and I was unsure of what to do but i thought i would start off with a quick make up review of some of my current favourite items. I hope you like it and i actually get some views :) 

Wake me up foundation

So recently I'm sure that you're heard of this, it is the foundation that everyone is raving about. Although at first I really liked this foundation after a while iv'e kind have grown bored of it and found its coverage isn't exactly what I am looking for. However, I have been using it for about the last 6 months and have found that it is the best affordable high street option available. I feel that the new bottle that i have recently bought i purchased in a shade darker than my usual shade. I usually buy the 103 true ivory shade but i have no bought the shade darker, True ivory. This one gave much better coverage and as it is summer it brightened my face also. So I am now loving this foundation again, particularly as it is cheap at only £8.99 from boots. But I am looking into trying the Bare essentials foundation as i hear it is very good.

Maybelline The Volum' Express Mascara Falsies

Another current beauty favourite of mine is the Maybelline volume express falsies, which i initially purchased as i heard many beauty you tubers recommendation of it. I think that it has such an intense black colour while extending your lashes fully without becoming clumpy and too thick. I would defiantly recommend this mascara, for only £7.99 from boots it is a real bargain!

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder

I do love this powder from rimmel and i find that when first applied it gives a lovely finish on your skin. I also find this powder to cover any scares or spots on my skin as it glides over these areas and covers them up well. This is good because i suffer from acne and i find that this product can be really useful on some of my worse days. However, i find that it does not last very long and comes off very quickly, but i do continue to use this on a daily basis as it is only £3.99 and lasts quite a long time.

So that was my first blog post, i hope that if you have managed to read it all that you enjoyed it. I would love to post some more blog posts very soon but i am not sure what anyone would like to read but i will see how it goes :) 

Bye bye x
