Revlon Lip Butters - Swatches and Review

Over the past few weeks I have become a little obsessed with the Revlon lip butters. I have four shades to show you today:
- Tutti Frutti (015) an orange colour - lovely  for spring/summer but not too bright
-Pink Truffle (001) - a gorgeous brown -toned nude.
-Berry Smoothie (050) - pink - berry colour with a little bit of glitter
-Cotton Candy (045) - pale pink. I have been wearing this for school for a subtle bit of colour and to protect my lips.


Firstly, I'll give a quick review before I show the swatches. I was extremely surprised at how pigmented these were. I expected them to be more like tinted lip balms (despite the Colourburst advertising - duh!) but instead I found them more like a lip stick in terms of pigmentation.
The only shade I haven't worn loads is Tutti -Frutti, however, I did buy this for spring/summer so it's not that I don't like the shade.
Secondly, they are wonderfully moisturising, even after the colour has gone they feel so nourishing as they contain mango, shea and coconut butter which is brilliant as it means that you can skip lip balm. They have a lovely shine to them but aren't sticky so are a great alternative to gloss which I love but can't wear it with my hair down on a windy day - ergh, long hair struggles.
The only thing that would make them better is if they lasted slightly longer, however, they are really easy to apply even without a mirror so I just top them up every few hours.

Here are the swatches (I apologize that they aren't brilliant and my mouth looks weird but you can see the colour)

I hope you liked this post, I would highly recommend these lip butters, they are £7.99 but usually stores such as Boots and Superdrug have offers on brands such as Revlon. 

I'd love to try some more colours so if you have any suggestions let me know!

Sixth Form Tips

Hi everyone!

If you're in the UK you might be preparing for GCSE results day (good luck) and there's a good chance you'll be planning on starting sixth form in September - you may have already had an induction day or week.

A few of you have messaged me on Instagram asking for tips about how to approach Sixth Form so I figured it was a concern for a reasonable amount of readers. Beginning P16 can be quite daunting and I wasn't really sure what to expect so I've put together this post to give you some tips that I've discovered over my time studying A Levels.

First up, a little bit of (school) background on me just in case you're new here: I'm a 17 nearly 18 year old about to start Y13 in September at a Sixth Form in a school in North East Derbyshire (although for arguments sake we'll just say near Sheffield). I have been at the school since Y7 however the Sixth Form is quite separate from the rest of the school and so nobody walks in to A Levels knowi…

The Books That Made Me

I'm a bookworm and proud. Before I made my YouTube channel private, I made a video defending the Twilight books (or rather all books) using the collection to argue my case that if a book gets someone to read, don't shame them for reading it. I stick by that absolutely. Any reading is beneficial to a person's development, especially when that person is a child.

I've been putting off writing this post for a while because quite frankly choosing my favourite books through the years is like choosing a favourite child and it's far too difficult. Therefore, please note that not all of my favourite books will be in here.

So maybe you're looking for some holiday reading material, inspiration for books to read to younger children or just fancy reading a nice, wholesome blog post. Here is my life through books.

An Opportunity to Reflect and Say Thank You

Since starting A2, time has been rather limited, hence the lack of blog posts recently. With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, I thought I would take a moment to reflect on 2017 and summarise some of the best moments of the year.

My time at home is quickly coming to an end; in September, all being well, I'll be off to university. I didn't realise until quite recently how much I take for granted while I am living at home. This year has been a year of change and a year to grow up, turning 18 has made me realise just how soon independence is going to come.

Perhaps it is this growing independence that has caused 2017 to be the busiest and most eventful year to date. It's been a year of exams and planning and looking around universities and opportunities. Yet it's also been a year in which I feel as though I've appreciated the incredible friends around me.

Without further ado, here are just a few highlights of 2017.
