Getty (edited)

I saved my personal favourite shade for last. Getty is an absolutely stunning dark teal.

I absolutely love the varied shade range in this launch, the more natural shades and all the pops of colour just make this launch so diverse and awesome.

The Colourpop website says that these lipsticks have a creamy matte finish.

The lipsticks also have acai, jojoba and pomegranate seed butters, which will moisturise the lips but also contain natural antioxidants to help with anti-aging effects.

The lipsticks retail for $7 each on the Colourpop website (link).

I’m definitely going to be picking some up with my next Colourpop order!

The Sunshine Blogger Award! ♡

Today’s post is a little different, and there isn’t much beauty included at all, but I was nominated by the lovely Emily Clare Beauty (check out her blog here) for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I absolutely love her blog and you should definitely give it a look! I thought I would take this chance to say thank you to everybody that has been reading my blog and leaving me feedback, it is so nice to know that people are enjoying what I’m doing.

Rules for the Sunshine Blogger Award:

Thank the person who nominated you.

Answer the 11 questions set by the person who nominated you

Nominate 11 bloggers to receive the award and write them 11 new questions to answer.

Here are the questions from Emily and my answers!

Where abouts in the world are you from?

I am from the South East of England, about an hours journey from London.

Why did you start blogging?

I had always wanted to start a blog, because I have always loved reading blogs and seeing other people’s opinions, and I thought it would be nice to be able to share what I think of certain products with other people. So one day last year I decided to give it a go, and after a few posts, I found it very difficult to carry on because of illness and stress and college.

But since the beginning of this year I’ve been absolutely blogging, and it’s my goal to be able to post a blog post every day in April.

What is your blog about?

My blog is a beauty blog, where I like to review products that I like and dont like much. I also post hauls of products I have picked up recently, and just generally post about all things makeup. I post about the big new releases in the makeup world and any other beauty things that are around.

I have also decided to post a few lifestyle posts when I do interesting things, like a baking day, or go out on adventures with my family or my boyfriend.

Who is your main inspiration?

I don’t think I have an inspiration for my everyday life, but I do have a blogging inspiration though and she is;

Hello October (link)

I adore Suzie’s blog, I think it looks so beautiful and classy and her writing style is so beautiful. If you haven’t been reading her blog, then you need to start because she is incredible.

What was the last thing you bought?

If we are talking life in general, then it was probably food, although I can’t imagine exactly what. BUT if we are talking makeup, then it was the Salvation Palette in Girls on Film from Makeup Revolution, and a gorgeous purple lipstick from MUA, so expect reviews coming soon!

You’re in a zombie apocalypse, the item on your left is your weapon, what is it?

Well the item to my left is my Nintendo DS with Pokemon Emerald..so I’m pretty stuffed when it comes to survival but I’m set for entertainment as long as I can find a place to charge it.

What is your favourite film?

I think my favourite film at the moment is Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List, it helps to cheer me up when I’m feeling a bit crap, and it also has a killer soundtrack.

If you could be a celebrity, who would you be?

I would probably be Angelina Jolie, I think she is amazing and I love her acting and her life just seems so glamorous and lovely. I think I would only want to live like that for a few days though, then it would be good to go back to me, in my hoodies and messy buns eating ice cream.

What is your favourite comfort food?

Hmmm, that’s a tricky one, but I think it might be crisps. Any sort of crisps, but especially ready salted. If I’m feeling a bit crappy I’ll make a nice cup of tea, and probably stick on a chick flick, and then it’s easy to munch my way through a few bags of crisps. It’ll have me feeling better in no time.

What year are you in at school?

I’m in my second year at college at the moment doing a diploma in art and design, I’ll be finished early May though and then I’m off to university.

What is your favourite thing about blogging?

I think my favourite thing about blogging would be the satisfaction. It might sound strange but for a while I wasn’t sure if anybody would read my blog, which is why it took me a while to get into blogging. But, it is so nice knowing that people all around the world are reading your blog and enjoying the content that you are creating. Feedback is also amazing, I love seeing when people have enjoyed my blog posts or like what I am blogging about.

My questions for my nominees:

How long have you been blogging?

What is your biggest guilty pleasure?

What do you do to pamper yourself?

What do you do when you want to relax?
