Review | Cinders Bath Bomb

Anyone who knows me knows that I love Lush products; I love their face masks, their hair products, lip products and particularly anything I can use in the bath. I love having a bath all year round, but especially during the winter, it's just a really nice way to relax and warm up after being out in the cold, so I'm a massive fan of Lush's Christmas range, in particular their Cinders bath bomb.

A Kylie Jenner Lip for £1

Kylie Jenner seems to have blown up over this past year, no longer are people wanting to know how to get the bronzed look of her sister Kim, instead they're wanting to replicate Kylie's winged liner, fluttery lashes and overdrawn 90's nude lip. I'd even go as far to say that in the past year both the Jenner sisters seem to have become more of a hot topic than the Kardashian sisters. It all seems a bit crazy how much influence a 17 year old can have on women of all ages across the world!

A Kylie Jenner lip liner dupe for MAC's Whirl and Soar

I personally haven't really been too desperate to get that 'Kylie Jenner 90's lip', I think it's a nice colour but I wasn't up for paying £12.50 for MAC's Whirl just for it not to suit me, nor was I willing to go the effort to get that lipliner, it seems to be sold out everywhere that sells MAC. However, I was recently in Wilkinson's and noticed their new Essence stand, so naturally I had to take a look at what they had. I've heard a lot about Essence from American YouTubers, but when I was looking there wasn't really anything that caught my attention other than this lipliner, which I personally think is an amazing dupe for MAC's Whirl or Soar, but for only £1! The lipliner in question is Essence's 06 Satin Mauve. For £1 I wasn't expecting much in terms of quality but I have been completely been proved wrong.

It's creamy and glides on the lips effortlessly, lasting pretty much all day - I put this on my lips around 12pm a few days ago and it was still on my lips at 7pm that night. It has a slight purple undertone to it which I think makes it perfect for the colder months when I find myself gravitating to more deeper tones. I find it suits any kind of look and is the perfect colour to quickly put on in the morning and then throw in your handbag because of how easy it is to apply. I personally have been loving wearing it with Benefit's Rockateur and Urban Decays Toasted with a wing liner, it looks like I've put a lot of effort in to my makeup when really it's taken me about 20 minutes. It's a great 'my lips but better shade' and is a perfect dupe for those wanting to replicate Kylie Jenner's 90's nude look.

I couldn't recommend this enough, for £1 it's amazing and I'm keen now to try some more of Essence's makeup, so if you've any recommendations let me know! I'm thinking some of their lipsticks or blushers maybe? If you've been wanting to try MAC's Whirl or Soar but you're having difficulty getting hold of them I'd check your local Wilkinson's for an Essence stand because for a fraction of the price I'm sure this will suffice!

November Favourites

Okay, I'm going to be a cliche blogger and say I have no idea where this month has gone! October didn't really go that fast, it was just a normal month, but this month seems to have just flown by. I've been caught up in work for university these past couple of weeks so maybe with that preoccupying me I've just not noticed the days passing me by. But, on to the favourites of November.
