Bourjois Lipstick Review

Hey guys!

Here is the comparative lipstick review I promised of the Bourjois lipsticks! I thought I'd make this post a little different and have 4 sections. The sections are formulation, colour, packaging and price.

The formulation of both lipsticks is really nice. They're both highly pigmented and aren't drying. I do find with the Rouge Edition Fuschia Graffiti 07 though, that if you don't have a balm on underneath it, it tends to settle into the creases of the lips, unlike Sweet Kiss.

I love the colour of both these lipsticks! Sweet Kiss is more on the purpley pink side, with a "my lips but better" feel. Fuschia Graffiti is a bright pop of pink with blue undertones which give it a shimmery look without actual shimmer.

I really dislike the packaging of Sweet Kiss. It has a slide up button which pops the lid off. This looks cheap and it also means that the lid sometimes comes off in your handbag. Not ideal! On the other hand, I love the packaging of Fuschia Graffiti, I think it looks really sleek and elegant in a simple way.

I'm unable to tell you the price of Sweet Kiss as it was a gift, however I purchased Fuschia Graffiti in my local Superdrug for £7.99. I think for a lipstick, this is quite affordable, but it is at the higher end of drugstore lipstick

Let me know what you thought of these lipsticks or any others and how you liked the layout of this post

Quote That Hit Home

Hey guys!

"This too shall pass"

I found this quote on Pinterest  and it really struck a chord with me. I think it's one that everyone should think about, especially if you're like me. I tend to over analyse every tiny minute detail of my life until I've twisted it into something that inevitably upsets me.


If something is really bothering you, I'd suggest thinking of this saying. Eventually the feeling, situation, person will go. It may not feel like it at the time but it will. You've got to think of what you want in the long run.

I'm applying this saying to my exams, in the long run I want to do something to do with law. My exams "shall pass" and I'll be able to do that. Stressing over them so much won't help me, they will come to an end in a month and I shall be able to relax then

Revision and stress- had enough?


Revision and stress getting you down? I know it's getting me down and I've hardly done any yet!
It's coming up to that time of year where summer feels like it's close enough that you can touch it but you've got to get through exams first

I am a right stresser when it comes to exams and assignments. Before a majority of exams I will have broken down in tears at least once, had my mum say 'you can do it, you always do' and then had sleepless nights over it. I wish that someone had screamed at me to relax before all of them, so I'll be the person to tell you to relax. Relax people, you can do it!

I'm here to share some of my revision tips, perfected over the years. Let's try and avoid looking like the below polar bear!


  1. Use the first day of your revision to plan what you'll do, get all the books and notes you'll need together and all the materials like post its, coloured pens and the likes. It will get your brain in gear for revision and it will make you feel good too.
  2. Seeing as you've got everything planned out, try to stick to it. Don't be too strict with yourself but make sure you can look back at the end of the day and see what you've achieved.
  3. TAKE BREAKS! Your brain needs a rest and cramming it with every piece of information you can get hold of, will just overload it
  4. Get parents, friends and siblings to help and test you on things
  5. Don't revise in one way, your brain becomes accustomed to this way and stops working. Mix it up every now and then with mind maps, notes, pictures
I feel this post has helped me too! I'm ready to get down to something. What's your favourite way to revise?

The Holidays Are Coming!


Today's post is a bit of a short one, just to let you know THE HOLIDAYS ARE COMING!
Spring is well and truly upon us, although you wouldn't know it from our British weather! Being at university means that summer holidays come even earlier this year; mine start May 10th after my last exam. I absolutely can't wait! After having to do uni work through Christmas and Easter, I can't wait for a holiday that can be completely dedicated to doing what I want (without the dreaded work hanging over me). Even I must admit though, 4 months of holiday is a tad excessive, what am I going to do?! The possibilities are endless (and I'll be bored by the second week!).

My summer holiday is already booked this year, I'm going to Tenerife with a friend for a week and staying in somewhere called Playas de Las Americas. I've heard it's really lovely and I'm counting down the days to top up my tan!

I've added a picture of my sister, my cousins and I on an English beach last year, just to get us all on the holiday spirit! (can you believe how blue the sea is?!)

Where are you going on holiday this year?
