Topshop - Pillow Talk

I see this lipstick crop up in beauty pages of magazines every now and again, so thought I'd try it out for myself. A very soft pink, Pillow Talk by Topshop is great for everyday and has amazing coverage. Most light pinks are very subtle, but this lipstick stands to attention.

It makes your lips feel velvety soft - I can't stop reapplying. It also looks stunning against pale skin.

Colour Intensity: high but colour isn't over-dramatic
Finish: silky finish
Overall Rating: 5/5

Colour Intensity: medium but definitely colourful
Finish: balm like
Overall Rating: 4/5

Finish: balm but with a real colour punch
Overall Rating: 4/5

Benefit - Lolli Balm

I'm a huge fan of Benefit, so whenever there's a new product I get more excited than a 5 year old on holiday.

I chose LolliBalm as I love Lolli Tint. A soft  pink hue with a hint of violet, it's a fantastic girly hue. The moisture actually lasts a lot longer than most balms I've tried and tested, so this range is a real winner.

Packed in a cute case, it's your new hang bag companion. 

Colour Intensity: sheer
Finish: balm with a hint of colour
Overall Rating: 5/5
