Topshop Whimsical Lipstick

Well I have officially lost my blogging mojo, if anyone has any tips on getting it back please let me know. I'm going to try and get a few posts up before Christmas in between all the shopping, wrapping and partying, cross my heart! To ease me back in to my old blogging routine I've got a Topshop lipstick review and I've had this one for quite a while but it got lost in the depths of my bag but has now been rediscovered!

Whimsical is a shade that I've wanted to try for ages and is described on the Topshop website as 'pinky nude' but I definitely see more orange than pink nevertheless it's a really nice everyday shade but I think it might be better suited to paler skin tones as similarly to MAC Sweet and Sour when I've been hitting the Xen Tan it can look a little stark. The formula is meant to be matte and although it isn't glossy I wouldn't say it was a true matte but saying that, this lipstick and dry lips do not go together at all as it goes on quite patchy as it is so if you've got any dryness going on it's just going to emphasize it. It's a shame that it doesn't go on as smoothly as I'd like and can get a little chalky as it wears because the shade is seriously lovely and when I've got it on it makes my skin look really pink and fresh. Now I've fished this out from the bottom of my bag hidden by Asda receipts and hair grips I'm going to slick on the lip balm and hopefully make the texture work for me because I love the shade!

'Tis The Season for a Festive Jumper!

The first of  December is here so you are officially allowed to dig out your Christmas jumper! I absolutely love a Christmassy jumper over the festive season and this year they are cuter than ever. They're such a comfy little style statement and if you've got me on Instagram you would have seen that I've had the H&M 'Dear Santa I want it all' jumper ready and raring to go for weeks now but had stern instructions from Joel that I must wait for December! I'm going to use Lauren Conrad as my inspiration this year because this is the best styling of a Christmas jumper I've ever seen and if that doesn't make you want to run out and buy one or shove the one you've already got on I don't know what will!
