I picked up:
x2 Collection 2000 'Lock 'n' Hold' lipglosses, in 'Body Pop' and 'Rock Steady'. They are advertised as lasting for up to 6 hours, but when wearing them I certainly needed to reapply a lot more often than that, however, they are lovely shades and for £4.99 for 2 they're good value for money too :)

My second cheeky purchase was x2 Barry M 'Lip Paints', in '52' and '53'. Surprisingly, the shades are very different (am I the only one that expects the numerical order of the shades to reflect their subtle changes in colour? non?) Shade 52 is a bright, shocking pink. It's very matte so make sure your lips are well moisturised before applying! Shade 53 is a much subtler, shimmery peach colour and would be lovely for a day lip colour, as well as a night time colour :) All Barry M lip colours are x2 for £7.99 in Superdrug at the moment so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to get a couple while they're a bit cheaper.

What Chanel says: 'Perfection has never been so simple. Perfection Lumière controls every detail of a perfect complexion to offer a tailor-made result, [...] Its light, fluid texture glides on seamlessly with adjustable yet lightweight coverage for perfect results.'
Personally, I found the foundation to be a bit dry which made application a little difficult. The sample I had was fairly small and in a tiny little sachet, which could have led to poor consistency. On the whole I was fairly disappointed, however, every cloud has a silver lining.
Also with this month's Glamour was a sample of Rimmel's Wake Me Up foundation.
What Rimmel says: 'Our first foundation that visibly reawakens and illuminates skin with a radiant glow and a flawless, natural-looking finish. Instant anti-fatigue effect, with peptides and a Vitamin Moisturising Complex.'
I'd never purchased Rimmel foundation before so I wasn't sure what to expect, if I'm completely honest I didn't expect much, HOWEVER, it was amazing! Application was really easy, it glided onto my skin easily and gave a really good coverage. I'm not sure if the 'illuminating' part will be due to the SPF 15 (anyone who has seen posts about SPF foundations previously will be aware of the 'ghost face') however, with it being winter and my skin being fairly pale as it is it's all gravy. + at the moment it's only £5.99 (RRP £8.99) in Superdrug so it's a bargain!
P.S. I will start providing the details of the song names/lyrics I tend to use for my post titles.
Today: City and Colour 'As Much As I Ever Could'
Also, what are people's thoughts on Instagram photos in posts? I know they don't show colours very well (at all!) but I think they're really charming, and I have included links to the products so that the true colours can be seen better there. Is this enough, or should I ditch Instagram for proper, better quality, photos? Answers on a postcard please :) X
