Mini Haul

Hi, I just popped into boots today and picked up to new lippies!
The first one is by Rimmel, it's from the new range of colours and it's called true vintage.
I LOVE it!..exactly what I've been looking for.
It's a gorgeous deep berry/burgendy matte colour. I personally love dark lips and love them during this time of year, deep berry lips have been a favourite on the catwalk for autumn/winter 09.
The second one is Berry Blush by Natural Collection. A really pretty dusky rose colour with a slight gold shimmer. At £1.95 it makes me love it even more!
The description on the back reads "High shine lipstick that gently moisturises the lips." Perfect for winter!
Here is a swatch of the two..

Asprin mask review

Hi gals, I did the asprin mask last night and I am pleased to say that it did not dissapoint!
My first attempt was mixing it with honey, I think it may be because I had a bit of a headache last night but I just couldn't take the stronge smell, so I used it as a quick scrub and rinsed it off after a few seconds. After having it on for that short amount of time my skin felt better!
I mixed up a few more tablets ( I think 3) with a tiny amount of water and left that on my face for 10mins. It gives a tight feeling after about 4mins, the consistancy is crumbly but still stayed on, as long as your not moving around alot! Anways on to the result... my skin was baby soft straight away! and the appearance was matte and texture looked more even.
I didnt put any moisturiser on after as I'm using a bit of a cheapy one at the mo and didn't want it to effect the result.
I woke up this morning and my skin was still nice and matte (usually oily), the redness from my spots had gone down and I even noticed some small scarring on my cheeks had faded!
I am definatly going to do this mask at least once every 2 weeks! I think it would be brilliant before a night out!

Asprin Mask

Hi Everyone, I just got back from a great 5 days away in Disneyland Paris!
One night we went for dinner in Annette's Diner, this really cute cool 50's looking diner and the staff are all on rollerskates, which I loved!..they make these incredible milkshakes, (of course it would be rude not to get one!) I choose a peanut butter one (tasted like Reeses pieces)
I regreted it straight away as my skin ERUPTS when I have anything peanut related!..
So I've heard raves about the asprin mask and thought nows the perfect time to try it. Have you ever tried it?
Im going to use about 4 tablets, drip a small amount of water and then add the honey, I know honey is good for your skin but it will also keep the mask on. I'm going to leave it for about 10mins then rinse with warm water.
I have never done this before so I will let you know how my skin is tomorrow..Im excited to do this as I haven't heard anything bad about it and I haven't done a homemade mask in yonks! Below is the honey and asprin I purchased..Honey from Sainsburys £2.20ish and tablets were a bargain at 13p!
