So University Is Finally Over

I've waited for so long to write this post, three years ago I was halfway through my A-Levels and I was ready to start preparing for University. It feels weird now to say that it's all over, and I can relax for a month before starting my new job. When I finished my exam I expected to have this uplifting ecstatic feeling, and I did but I was also left with this weird feeling that it's all over and that's it. It's weird when you've spent so long writing your dissertation and preparing for exams for it to just all be done, everyone finishes at different times and it's just generally weird.

But it makes me more than excited to start my new job and not to get all soppy but start a new chapter, I have a lot of good and bad memories from University. I made friends for life and also experienced parts of life I never thought I would, I always used to cringe when people said that University helped them change as a person. But I do genuinely believe it does something, …

That Perfect Autumn Lip Pencil - Kiko Smart Lip Pencil Review

 I was never in that Kylie Jenner big lips faze, the lip liner and lipstick duo was never really my kinda thing. However, since that trend started I have become more and more interested in the idea of lip liners. 

Deciding to break out of my shell, I went and looked around Kiko whilst I was on holiday in August and picked up this 'Smart Lip Pencil' in the Shade Light Plum 711. This is a perfect Purple/Red shade that I thought would look great in the Winter. 

The lip pencil claims to have a smudge-proof hold, helping to define lips with or without using a lipstick as well. In my opinion I find that works much better on its own rather than pairing it with a lipstick. 

The colour pay off is great, it creates a fairly deep purple/burgundy shade that reminds me slightly like an MUA Lipstick I featured in last years Autumn Lipsticks post. The lip liner has a matte finish which is a nice touch especially for it being more of an Autumn shade.

I find that it tends to last around 3 hours before you really should re-apply it. I wouldn't say that this is the most long lasting lip liner, but you shouldn't really expect them to stay on all day anyway. 

The lip liner is priced at £2.50  which is possibly one of the cheapest lip liners I have tried. And considering the shade range and colour pay off this is definitely at too cheap a price. I would probably pay about £5+ for this, just because of how well it works.

Overall, I have been fairly impressed with this lip liner. Being one of the first lip liners I have actually tried I feel fairly confident now with trying some that are more of a nude shade. So if you have any recommendations feel free to comment them down below.

                      Until next time, Chloe!
