The most beautiful berry lip - Charlotte Tilbury 'Glastonberry'

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in 'Glastonberry' £23

Sigh, there is something about Charlotte Tilbury beauty products that makes me swoon like no other. I've previously posted about the lip cheat liner, and I've been determined to try one of the matte revolution lipsticks for a while. With the black friday promotions I managed to snap this up on Selfridges with a discount code. 'Glastonberry' is the perfect autumn to winter shade, its a mid berry tone between purple and red and I adore it. The packaging of this product is perfect and really makes you feel like you're money is well spent. Despite this product being described as matte the application is creamy on the lips and not the slightest bit drying atall. The main idea behind this range is to give you a fuller looking lip, which I couldn't say no to. I do need to buy a lip liner to wear with this product as the beautiful square tip makes for some tricky cupids' bow precision. Overall I'm over the moon with this product, it was a splurge but one to stick on the wish list girls!

What beauty buys have you been lusting after?

A little lush haul...

Now that the weather has turnt colder, and my work schedule includes alot of night shifts, I've become more partial than ever to a bath. Lush is always my favorite place to go for bathtime goodies. The christmas range always leaves me excited and I've managed to nab a few ahead of the christmas rush. I am forever uploading pictures of my baths on instagram if you are interested in seeing these in action..

(L-R from packaged picture)

Shoot for the stars bath bomb £3.65'Stay very still to watch the swirling colours of the night sky dazzle in your bath water. As the calming blanket of shimmering midnight blue unfolds, Brazilian orange and bergamot oils take your skin to heaven and your mood rocketing up to the stars'

Father christmas bath bomb £3.65 - This one caught my eye because of the super green fizzy bath it produces! 'Before making this, Father Christmas must have stopped at a sweet shop for stocking fillers because it smells like freshly spun candy floss. Soak away the hours in sweet, mouthwatering waters as the blushing red of Santa's cheeks fizz away to reveal a vivid, holly green centre'

Dashing santa bath bomb £2.95 - More of a foam style fizz as appose to clear bubbles 'Santa's golden boots fizz away first, sending him dashing around delivering lustrous waters of cheery mandarin oil. Bright, fruity bergamot and orange flower absolutes scent the air like fresh satsumas, making him a perfect treat for the bottom of stockings.'

Intergalactic bath bomb £3.95 - Not part of the christmas range, if you are a fan of a massive colour pay off, this is the one for you! 'Ever wondered what bathing in deep space would be like? Invite the cosmos into your bathroom with this sexy, interstellar bomb and become the guardian of your own galaxy. An awesome mix of refreshing peppermint and neon colour sends your mood rocketing, while popping candy takes you on a trip around the Milky Way. Constellations swirl and pop, creating vibrant lustre vortexes in the night sky. Before you leap too far, rogue layers of vetivert and cedarwood take hold, evoking the warmth of human contact far from home and a hint of 80s aftershave. Return from your intergalactic brief encounter as the grounding scent brings you gently back from orbit.'

Peeping santa bubble bar £3.95 - I actually saw this one online, and my other half picked this up for me as a just because gift, I was stolen by this little guys cute apperance and the amazing red bubble bath he produces ... p.s I've only just discovered that bubble bars are different to bath bombs and need to be broken up under running water 'Santa's always watching with his dairy free chocolate drop eyes, waiting for his batch of hand-churned shea butter from the Ojoba women's cooperative in Ghana to be ready. When the festive season comes round, it's blended with Fair Trade Organic Cocoa butter to make the filling between Santa's sandwich of strawberry-sweet bergamot and geranium oils. Crumble under the running water for sack loads of fruity bubbles.'
