Lip Balm Collection – Summer 2015

Lip Balm Collection

As of Sumer 2015

So I decided it was time to do an updated Lip Balm collection since my last on was in Autumn 2013 and you can click here to see that post. I am still absolutely obsessed with lip balm but I have been making an concentrated effort to try and use some up before buying more, which has kind of worked. You will notice some of the same products from my older post, but I have used quite a few things up, which I’m proud of. So on to what I actually have now.

Products I’ve Finished

Spring 2015

Okay, so this is a collective Products I’ve Finished post from March, April and May 2015. I’m not going to waffle too much here, because there’s rather a lot to get through. I never seem to realise just how much stuff I use until I lay it out in front of me.

Products I’ve Finished

February 2015

I’ve got a handful of things which I’ve finished in February to share today. There’s a load of things that I want to buy and to try, but I’m determined to finish some of the products I already own before hand. I love doing my Products I’ve Finished posts, there is often such a feeling of accomplishment when I have finished a product!

Products I’ve Finished – September 2014

Products I’ve Finished

September 2014

I’ve been on a huge must finish a load of half used up products by the end of the year kick recently and I’ve done really well. The result? This Products I’ve Finished post is going to be epic. I’ve used up so many products this month that I barely know where to start. But I really do need to get through some of the products which are cluttering up my shelf. Mainly because a) it’ll save me money in the run up to Christmas and b) I’ll probably get new products as Christmas gifts. And as you’ll see from this post, I’m still using up last years Christmas gifts!

I’m totally sure I didn’t use up this many things before I started blogging. I don’t think this is going to be as big as last month’s post, but I do have a few things that I’ve finished this month to share with you.

Tag – The Lip Product Addict Tag – June 2014

The Lip Product Addict Tag

June 2014

The lovely Jacquelyn from thelittlescottishcorner tagged me to do the Lip Product Addict tag and it’s really good timing because recently my sister and I have been lip product crazy and have bought loads when we’ve been out shopping together. I’ve always been something of a lip balm addict (see my lip balm collection post here) but recently I’ve been all about lip colours as well.

Lip Product Addict Tag (2)

So this is my current lip product collection minus one or two lip balms which I couldn’t be bothered retrieving from whichever bag or coat pocket they were in when I took the photo. But now, on to the tag!

Tag – Best of Beauty 2013 Tag – January 2014

Best of Beauty 2013 Tag

January 2014

I was tagged by the lovely Benita over at Benita’s Beauty Bits and Bobs to do this tag. If you haven’t already checked out her blog, then you really need to, she is amazing. The Tag is to share your favourite beauty products in a certain category from 2013. Now I’ll be the first to admit that makeup is not a strong suit of mine, but 2013 has been the year when I’ve worn makeup more than I’ve ever worn it before, so I’m so happy and excited that Benita tagged me to do this. I don’t know all that much about makeup, I’m much more of a nail varnish girl then a makeup girl, but I am slowly learning, and many of the makeup products I use are the same over and over again, but I’m happy to share what I do use with you all. And hopefully 2014 will bring new products for me to try. 🙂

1. Primer

I will hold my hands up and admit I don’t use a face primer, I just use moisturiser before applying my foundation. And my favourite one in 2013 was my Olay Essentials Complete Care Plus Everyday Sunshine Moisturising Cream.

Products I’ve Finished – November 2013

Products I’ve Finished

November 2013

So this is my first ever products I’ve used up post. I love watching these empties videos on YouTube at the end of each month to see what people have been enjoying. But I’ve never done a post of my own as I don’t really use things up that quickly and I use the same products over and over so it’d get really repetitive really quick. But this month I have finished a few different items at the same time so I thought I’d share them with you.

Tag – Colours of the Rainbow Tag – Beauty Edition – November 2013

Colours of the Rainbow Tag

Beauty Edition

November 2013

So, I watched a load of the Colours of the Rainbow Tag videos on YouTube this summer. And I’ve kind of made an early New Year’s Resolution, I want to try and post a lot more regularly on my blog. So I’ve been looking for topics and ideas which I can prepare ahead of time. And one of the things I came up with was to do some of my favourite Tags from YouTube.

Now from watching the videos I get the idea that many American’s are taught to remember the order of the colours of the rainbow by learning the name Roy. G. Biv. Here in England we are usually taught the phrase Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain, and that is certainly the way I remember them. I also really like it about I’m a big history fan and this phrase refers to Richard Duke of York’s defeat at the battle of Wakefield during the War of the Roses in 1460. Richard himself was never King but two of his sons were, Edward IV and Richard III.

It varied from person to person whether they choose a product whose packaging matched the colour or whether they went for the colour of the product itself. I’m going with packaging, it was easier! For some products I also have an honourable mention because it was difficult to just choose one. Also a lot of the videos added in categories for pink and multicoloured. I’m going to do the seven colours of the rainbow, pink, gold, silver, black and white.

Lip Balm Collection – Autumn 2013

Lip Balm Collection

As Of Autumn 2013

This probably sounds completely crazy, but I am absolutely addicted to lip balm. I am never without it. It’s always one of the first items in my bag when I’m going out, I have it stashed in my desk drawer at work, during winter I keep it permanently in the pocket of my winter coat, it’s always in my pocket if I got out without a bag and I have several stashed all over my room. So needless to say, my lip balm collection is probably on the larger side of most people’s and I decided to share it with you.
