Revlon Coffee Shimmer | LPOW

Hey Everyone,

Good evening, I just got in from a christmas dinner and it was such a lovely evening and felt like writing a short post for you all!

So I think I have decided to do a couple of really short posts a week which are a lip product of the week (LPOW) and an eye product of the week (EPOW). I'm not sure those names are catchy...  Let me know if you would be interested in this? I will literally be writing one paragraph on how I feel about this product and why I like it, and then give swatches, pictures etc...

So to start, for this week the feature is.... Revlon's Coffee Shimmer lipstick.

I LOVE this lipstick so much! It is a gorgeous metallic, brown, coffee... colour and is just so unique! And it is from revlon so its nothing more than £6, although not sure how much this one was.  It has a really nice application and is not drying at all, and is very smooth.  It does come out a lot more brown in person, so the picture is a little bit deceiving, but it is gorgeous and I love it.  It is not an every day, wear to class lipstick, but its perfect for going for drinks, or dinner, and to be honest I will wear it just to go shopping because I think its stunning.

Let me know if you like this and think its a nice little post for the week.  I have a good few posts lined up for the next few weeks, although I can't promise the most consistent of posting because I have my december exams, but I will try my best :)

POUNDLAND Travel Mug £1 BARGAIN | AnnabelReid13

Just a quick post today to let everyone know about this awesome deal currently going on in Poundland!

I have a bit of an obsession with thermos's and mugs and all that lovely good stuff, and as I was browsing in Poundland I found this gem! Its a thermos with a cute christmas pattern, and of course it was only £1!! I will say that I know some Poundlands are different and I purchased mine from the Poundland in Edinburgh on Nicholson Street.  I have already been using it and I really like it.  I shook it with water in and very little leaked, however walking to class today there was some leakage.  But I think I overfilled it or something.  But for only a pound its just good because it kept my tea nice and warm for my walk to uni, whereas my normal cup is not a thermos right now and so I have to drink it on my way otherwsie its cold.
And theres cheeky Santa, hiding in the background ☃

So for only £1 I really recommend it, but the Costa ones are much better and they are only £3, so depends on what suits your fancy.  The Costa ones don't leak at all, so I would definitely recommend them!

Hope you are having a fab day,
Annabel :)
Lets get christmassy ❄ ☃

Makeup Revolution | Haul and Swatches

Evening Everyone,

I'm back today with a haul from Makeup Revolution that I was really excited to recieve and write about.  This was initially a first impressions etc, but since taking the pictures I have used some of the products and I now have a much better opinion and view on these products.  So lets get straight into the haul/swatches/review :)

Fragrance Direct, CHEAP | Haul

                           Hey Everyone,

Just today I recieved a package from  This is an awesome site where you can get a major discount on many beauty products:  makeup, body products, perfumes and gift sets.

I thought I would show you some of the things I bought from here and my initial reviews.  I have bought from this site before many times and have always been very pleased with the service and with the products I have recieved.  Especially for the amazing prices, with savings of at least 50% or more!

I would like to keep in mind that the pictures are not the best quality and I understand this, I am currently at university and away from home and my camera is at home.  I will be getting this camera back in a couple of weeks so the pictures will improve after this.

So I was able to get all of these things (14 items) for £18.56! Its crazy how much you can get for what you pay for.  Also its awesome for me because I am a student on a budget and therefore cannot afford to splurge on all the makeup I want, so this is a perfect website for me to crave my need for makeup!
