My Goals Til The End Of The Year

WOO, I'm back, it feels weird having a bit of a break. But in all honesty it was very overdue, I'm the kind of person that finds themselves running on empty quite a bit. It's something I don't want to be like obviously, but I'm very much an 'oh well I'll find time for a break later on' rather than at the moment when I need it. It's not exactly been a relaxing sit around do nothing, it's been more of a right I have a new job so my attention needs to be on that, I'm in the world of 9-5 so it's taken me some time to find my feet and get settled into the new routine. 

But I feel like I've got there now, I actually do 7 hours a day so my trick to combat that is to do add an extra hour onto my day to go to a cute cafe and get some blog posts done. And with that, I wanted to set myself some goals so that this break and time to think was for more than my return post. My blog has been very up and down over the years, it's had an up and dow…

The Red Lip Love

It's about time I mentioned a red lip for the first time in absolute ages. Red lipstick is a signature I always in my life. I wear them a lot actually even though you probably wouldn't have any clue as I don't normally document it each time. I have got a pretty good collection now but there's one that really sticks out for me. I got a miniature YSL lipstick when I got the Black Opium perfume. I was so excited and it's my first designer lipstick so there's sentimental value to this beauty.

First off that packaging though, it has the high end feel to it which I am fully fine with this one. The fact that it's a miniature means it's even cuter. Like come on it's tiny lipstick how could I not find this cute. Because of how tiny it is it fits in my little bags perfect so come on there's already a love affair here.

Colour wise this is a real pop art red. Which come on am I ever gonna hate, it has a matte finish but there is a slight hint of shine. For me this gets the balance right and allows me to get the colour I want without it sliding all around my face. If you've read my blog for long enough you'll know that I hate anything glossy with an absolute passion so it's refreshing to see this has a matte finish to it.

Payoff wise the colour is there within seconds. It doesn't require 400 applications to get a streak free pay-off. It does everything I need it to do and more. I forgot about my love for bright red lipstick til I got this. It doesn't lie when it says it's a true red colour it isn't lying.

Lasting power on this is really good, it stays on all day and holds up well with food and drink. It does leave the red stain on a hot chocolate but who would exactly complain about that. For the price this is definitely worth it. I wouldn't go out my way buying the whole collection but I love having this as a sentimental piece. 

Let me know down below if you've tried any of the Ysl's lipsticks. They're a first for me but i'm definitely hooked.
