Actually Dolly

Just a quick post to let you know that I have started a new blog with a little less lipstick and a little more...everything else. The Lipstick Blog is very much still alive, but it just has a new little sister in the form of Actually Dolly.
See you there.

No7 Perfect Lips Kit

Every now and then No7 offer a "gift with purchase" on various products. I have never seen them do this before but after this particular offer ended they decided to sell off the sets at a bargain price. 

This is the No7 Perfect Lips Kit which I picked up for a barginous £5. Inside you get -
A full size No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Classic Rose (£9.75)
A full size No7 High Shine Lip Gloss in Smile (£9.00)
And a full size No7 Lip Brush (£7.00)
My maths is a little rusty but I make that a saving of £20.75. The shades are great every day colours that would suit almost everyone and the lip brush will be a perfect addition to my brush collection. 
I found this set in one of my smaller boots stores but they had loads dotted around the store in various places. If you spot one of these sets I definitely recommend picking it up, if not for yourself then it would make a great expensive looking present.

2014 Lip Lust List

Hello, I'm back, and what better way to kick off my first post of 2014 than with a Lip Lust List. I have not only been out of the blogging loop, but pretty much the entire beauty loop for a couple of months now so I am still catching up on whats hot and whats not. One thing I am quickly realising is lipsticks are still very much HOT (Thank goodness) So this is what I will be lusting after in 2014.

The Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lips started to appear on blogs at the mid to end of last year and I didn't see a single shade I disliked. Not only that but the packaging just screams "Buy me". I am really not fussy which shade I end up with, as long as one is in my handbag by the end of this year. 

This Sisley Lipstick has been on my wishlist forever. I would say possibly two years. Although all the colours look spectacular, the one that really drew me in was "Rose Fushia" I wouldn't say no to "Mandarin" either. 
(Can we all just take a minute to debate the spelling of the word Fushia. Every website I went on to look for this lipstick spelled it differently)

Although they are yet to reach our shores I am already lusting after some of the Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balms. If they are anything like the Kissable Balm Stains they are going to be a huge hit. I haven't heard such great things about the Lacquers that are coming out at the same time, so I might have to skip those. 

That's all I am lusting after at the moment, However I doubt the list will stay that modest for very long. Am I missing out on anything? What is on your lust list?
