The Ultimate Christmas Red Lip

I definitely do not need another red lipstick but if Christmas isn't the perfect time to wear one, then when is? When I saw a review of the Maybelline Colour Drama Velvet Lip Pencils over on Alix's blog (I Covet Thee), I decided that I needed to try one out. 

Although my lipstick collection is not lacking in the red department I opted for a classic, dark, blue toned red in the shade Red Essential. What I love about this is the pencil applicator. It is so easy to line and fill in the lips meaning there is no need to use a separate lip pencil! 

The consistency of this product is smooth and velvety as the name suggests. It is quite matte which means it has brilliant staying power but doesn't make your lips feel dry. 

This shade is also similar to the Nars Velvet Lip Pencil in Cruella which I have been eyeing up for ages but cannot justify paying £18 for it! For only £4.99/€7.49, the Maybelline Colour Drama Velvet Lip Pencils are a bargain and definitely worth trying. I will be buying other shades from this range for sure.

Winter Essentials: The Tartan Scarf


An effortless, comfy way to style a Tartan scarf this winter. The one I purchased was only £6 in Primark and when I took it home I realized it was also reversible (a dogtooth print on the opposite side). You definitely can't go wrong for that price and as a wardrobe staple it will see you through the whole of winter.

Woman Crush Wednesday #1 : Marion Cotillard

French actress Marion Cotillard's style is a mixture of feminine, understated, structured, demure and bold.
I think its important to find inspiration in the celeb and media filled world and adapt it to your own style preferences.
The following combination of monochrome with bursts of red and orange immediately caught my eye and below is a selection of items that I would personally wear to recreate the look.
