Some new lipstick additions

Even though I haven't actually been able to wear lipstick recently because of a problem with really dry skin along my lip line this hasn't stopped me adding a few new lipsticks to my collection. I haven't used any of these yet, because of my dry lips problem and also because I was waiting to take some pictures, but I thought I'd show you my new additions.

NARS Audacious Greta, L'Oreal Collection Exclusive Pure red by Julianne and Burberry Kisses in Military red

NARS Audacious Greta, L'Oreal Collection Exclusive Pure red by Julianne and Burberry Kisses in Military red
A couple of weeks ago I hit my 10th anniversary with my boyfriend and although we don't really have any spare money at the moment he gave me £30 to buy whatever I wanted. Before I started blogging he would actually buy makeup for me, but since I started my blog he's been far too scared that he might get it wrong so he usually just gives me the money. First I headed into House of Fraser, but they didn't have the brands I was really interested in at the time, so instead I headed across the road for my first trip into Space NK. Yes, seriously, I haven't been in a Space NK store before! Although even for a beauty obsessive I guess this might not be that unusual as Space NK isn't like Boots with a store on pretty much every high street. I didn't have anything in particular in mind so I just wandered round and really enjoyed discovering what they have stocked in there. I think my boyfriends local store is quite a small so there's not an awful lot in there, but they do have a reasonable sized NARS stand. I spotted the lipsticks, had a quick swatch, and the NARS Audacious lipstick in Greta came away with me as my first Space NK purchase.

After Space NK I had a little bit of money left so we headed down to Boots. I would have taken advantage of the 3 for 2 but the third product I wanted I couldn't have because all the products on the display were tested and all smushed. So I just went with the one product I've had my eye on for a while now and that was the L'Oreal Collection Exclusive Red by Julianne. I originally wanted Blake's red but looking at the shades again I thought Julianne's might be better for going into summer.

Finally, as you're probably aware I didn't actually buy the teeny tiny Burberry Kisses in Military red as this is a sample from the campaign that's been all over Twitter for the last few weeks. I have to admit that at first I was wary of the campaign thinking it might be some kind of scam, but once the Instagram pictures of received samples started popping up I nominated my boyfriend and of course claimed it for myself (I'm not sure Military red would suit him!). The sample is so cute and tiny, but there's still a reasonable amount in there to be able to test it out properly.

I'll report back when I've given each one a try.

Have you added any new lipsticks to your collection recently?

    1. I'd previously decided what shade I wanted from the Audacious range based on internet swatches but couldn't remember when I was in there, but it's probably better to go by swatching in person anyway! x

    1. I'm sure it will be the first of many Space NK visits now! Greta looks like a red in these pictures but it's actually more of a fuchsia pink (I think, I still haven't really tried it yet!) x
