May all be 'berry' and bright!

Each autumn/winter I look for the perfect berry lip shade and usually give up, having had far too many 'Goldilocks' moments! I either find that the shades are too purple or too black in tone, and, at my age, I really don't want to look like a Rocky Horror reject.

I recently saved up some Boots points and thought 'right, come on Carter, get your butt to Boots and find yourself this lipstick! So, off I trotted, and, to my amazement, actually found one! Hurrah!

My chosen lipstick is by Revlon. It is their Colourstay 'Ultimate Suede Lipstick' in the shade 'Couture'. Coming in at £8.99 (or free to me thanks to my points!) it is not the cheapest of the cheap but hey, when you have looked for the perfect berry shade as long as I have it is all good! 

The 'suede' lipstick collection has had mixed reviews, from what I have seen on YouTube and blogs, but, from what I have experienced so far it seems really lovely. My needs from a winter lippy are not the easiest. I want something that will last, but not dry my lips (so matte shades are kind of out) yet I don't want something so glossy that my hair sticks to it or it slips about. This formula seems to do the job for me. It claims to give you moisture and wear and contains Shea Butter and Aloe to help achieve that perfect balance.

I have no doubt that this lippy will appear in a video soon so I will let you know how it wears. 

Naturally, you can't go to Boots and leave with one thing, so I may have accidentally brought a Revlon Nail Enamel too! I threw away a polish yesterday that I loved so much that I used it all up, so clearly needed to buy another one! I opted for a slightly different shade and am pleased I did as it is gorgeous! 

I treated myself to Revlon's Classic Nail Enamel in 'Vixen', £4.49. It is a beautifully rich plum shade that is super glossy and wonderful to apply. I saw several other colours which I instantly fell in love with too but had to restrain myself as I had already spent my points! 

There are some seriously beautiful and tempting things in my favourite store right now so definitely time to save some pennies for Christmas!!

Let me know if you have tried any of the two products I have mentioned and tell me what you thought! Send me a Tweet @lucycarterart or 'Like' my Facebook Page - come and have a chat!
