Nivea Lip Butter in Raspberry Rose

A little gem that I spotted reduced in my local supermarket.. whilst on a grocery shop. I swear I should just avoid the beauty aisle in general when grocery shopping.

I am such a fan of the Nivea Lip Butters, and I have proclaimed my love for them on this blog previously. I currently own Caramel Cream, and Vanilla & Macadamia, so naturally I had to add Raspberry Rose to make the trio.

I love the tin packaging of the butters, and I am a sucker for pink packaging.
The conistiency is much the same as the others, however it is a tinge pink, but not too noticeable on the lips. In general, it is a lovely lip balm, and it does what a lip balm should do. I think it is a great product for the price, and even better when you can find it on offer at stores.

Now, I'll stop adding to my lip balm collection. Unless any readers can recommend some of their favourite lip balms?

What's on my face? - Cocktails/Mocktails/Drinks with the girls date edition

This little edition is the make-up perfect for a catch up drinks with your bestest of friends. I love the simplicity of the make-up products. I'm a fan of the 'a little goes a long way' mantra, and this ties in with the make-up of these products.
I have to say my favourite product of this selection has been the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Guest List.

Rimmel Match Perfection: I have proclaimed my love for this foundation before here.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Cream Highlighter: Perfection. I apply this own its own as a highlighter, or mix it in with my foundation to add that boost of radiance to my skin.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealor: A new addition to my face, and it's a good'un.

Rimmel Mono-eyeshadow in Backstage: Another Rimmel gem here! Goodness, there's a whole lot of Rimmel loving in this post!

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Butter in Dark Chocolate and Cherry: I have proclaimed my love for this before, a winner of a lip care product.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Guest List: This is just a staple in my collection, it is just beautiful!

Essence Kajal Pencil in Teddy: I'm unsure if this is a 'dupe' for MAC's eye pencil in Teddy, but if it is a real good one! I'm seriously impressed, great colour, great payoff, creamy enough to blend, and smudge out. It's beautiful.

Maybelline Master Prescise Liquid Liner: Such a great eyeliner, applies on well, is perfect for beginners or anyone starting out with liner, or wants to make the eyeliner aspect of their make-up routine that bit easier.

Maybelline Define-A-Lash Mascara: Just another great all rounder mascara from Maybelline.

What are your staple make-up products?
