This was one of the first products that I brought from LUSH and I wasn't disappointed. If you haven't heard of this it's basically a exfoliator for your lips. I only use this when my lips are chapped because I find that this can be sometimes very drying so whenever I use it I always have to apply a lip balm after wards. This lip scrub does make your lips very smooth though and smells divine (like all lush products). It also tastes really good- I always dry not to eat it off my lips because you are, pretty much, eating the dead skin off but it is just too tempting! aha! As you probably know, this is made with lots of natural goodness, no harmful chemicals and only includes 6 ingredients which I think is super important!
Have you tried any lip scrubs? What did you think? What's the popcorn flavour like?

Liz Earle Blush in Peony 07 | Liz Earle
This Liz Earle blush is really stunning. Just like the bronzer, which I reviewed a few weeks ago (here), this blush is so natural and subtle. It has the tiniest bit of shimmer which I like because it just adds the right amount of 'glowyness' to your cheeks. This shade has come out a little darker than in really life sadly but it is really build-able and I would recommend it for all skin types- it's perfect for a everyday blusher. Like all of Liz Earle make-up they are beautifully pigmented and the packaging is effortlessly classy. 

Have you tried any of Liz Earle make-up? What did you think?

Liz Earle Superbalm | Liz Earle

If you follow by blog you will know how obsessed I am with Liz Earle! Today's pick is their superbalm- it is defiantly super! I mainly use it on my lips but occasional on my nails and cuticles too. It's very moisturising and includes lots of natural goodness. The 5g pot is very useful to just chuck in your bag when you are about to leave too. It isn't 'floral scented' or something which is really highly scented which I am not to keen on. This smells very neutral (if that makes sense) and not overpowering. The only down side is that I find it has a rather 'oily' feel which is completely fine if you are wearing it on its own but as a lipstick primer it isn't. That said, it isn't too thick. 

Have you tried any Liz Earle products? Which one is your favourite?

MUA Blusher in Bon Bon | Superdrug

I have never tried anything from MUA before but when I saw this for £1 I just couldn't resist. I had been on a hunt to find a drug store blusher with no shimmer and I think this is the one. It is very highly pigmented- you only have to tap your brush in it and you will already have enough. It's perfect for everyday- especially for school- as it doesn't have any shimmer and looks completely natural. Staying power is okay but if I want it to stay all day I would have to reapply it throughout the day. However, apart from that, for a few pounds I don't think you can go wrong!

Have you tried any MUA products- I have heard the primer is really good? What do you think?

BURT'S BEES Lip Balm can be purchased at Boots
I have loved this lip balm for ages- it's sooo good! It is 100% natural and includes vitamin E, peppermint and obviously bees wax. Whenever my lips feel dry then I put this on and, in no time at all, they are back to normal. You don't have to keep applying it throughout the day because it almost works if you only use it once! As soon as you put this on your lips they go all tingling- it feels like you can actually feel it working. It's also perfect for under lipstick. It makes your lips feel and look healthy. It isn't too thick either which I have found with many lip balms. However the flavoured ones aren't as good so I would defiantly recommend getting the original! It may be slightly expensive for a drug store lip balm but it is far the best!

Girl Online (By Zoe Sugg aka Zoella)
I was given this book from Father Christmas and I finished it a few days ago so I thought I would do a quick review on what I thought about it! At my primary school we used to do 2 stars and a wish where we would give two things we liked about our work and one thing we didn't like (improvement). So I am going to do just that...

 ★ | This book was so easy to read! It may have been because it was written in a 'blog' style or because it's ranged at a younger audience to me but I couldn't put it down! Also the chapter sizes are really short which I like because no matter how much time you have, you always will have time to quickly read a chapter or two!

★ |  When I was reading this book it kept reminding me a Zoe. I don't really know why but if I had read this, without knowing who the author was, I would have guessed Zoe. I love books which remind you of the author because it makes them unique and individual. She included so many different issues about adolescence too which I think is really nice because it raises awareness of them (eg. anxiety, spots, boys, friendship, relationships)

☁ | This would have probably made the story boring but I thought it was a little unrealistic. It's very much a girly chic flick book, which I suppose isn't a bad thing, but I would have liked it to be in more depth- If that makes sense? I bit more 'grit'. Ahaha!

That said I can't wait to read book two this year (that sounds really weird- 2015!)  and I can really see this book turning into a film one day!

Have you read this book? What do you think? What's your favourite book?

Liz Earle Radiant Glow Bronzer
Liz Earle's Radiant Glow Bronzer is so beautiful! I love that it adds so much glow and highlight to your face and it looks so natural. It also makes your skin look incredibly healthy and alive- I have also noticed this with the blush that Liz Earle also do. It can double up as an eye shadow as well. This bronzer is very build-able meaning it can go with lots of different looks and lipsticks! Even though this is expensive it is defiantly worth it!  I like that it has a mixture of matte and shimmery shades too as it adds to the natural 'glow'. Your skin but better! I am really looking forward to wearing this in the summer!
