Vamp it up - Winter lips

1 - Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte in 107
2 - Revlon Super Lustrous in Black Cherry
3 - Revlon Matte lipstick in Really Red
4 - 17 Lasting Fix in New Black

My top four drugstore lipstick picks for the winter, of all four my favourite is the Revlon black cherry, perfect super dark red not too pinky/purpley which i think dark lipsticks tend to be (including the kate moss 107). Black cherry wears really well, you can't feel it on your lips really and it doesn't come off onto your glass when your drinking. Bonus. However, i love them all dearly.

Lush 'Melting Snowman; Bath Melt

Lush 'Melting Snowman' Bath Melt - £2.25

Recently i have been loving Lush, i went through a phase last year of using the Lush scrubs and skincare products but i never really got into the bath products. 
Over the last few weeks however i have been trying out the bubble bars, i used (but didn't blog about) candy mountain bubble bar and the pumpkin bubble bar, and i loved them. They didn't create too many bubbles in my bath to be honest but the colour and smell was enough to keep me repurchasing. So when browsing the Lush store last week i decided i would try a bath melt for a change. I went for the melting snowman because of the festive factor mostly but also because it smells amazing, i can't explain the smell very well to be honest it's not a christmassy smell in my opinion but it's just fresh and spicy. The bath melt's are supposed to fill your bath with moisturising oils to leave you soft and smelling amazing. I haven't used this yet i'm saving it to soften me up before a night out, but it claims to have cocoa butter and shea butter, amazing!

"Exquisitely fragranced with Hot Toddy, a favourite blend from Christmas past containing cinnamon, clove, patchouli, benzoin, lime and sweet wild orange oils. But if it isn’t enough to smell of one of our most popular Christmas fragrance - he’s also got a body made of water softening bicarb of soda, cocoa butter and shea butter. All these wonderful butters melt into your bath water, leaving you soft and moisturised. His legacy is your great skin, which means he lives on in the memory of all who knew him."
