Revlon Lip Butters - Swatches and Review

Over the past few weeks I have become a little obsessed with the Revlon lip butters. I have four shades to show you today:
- Tutti Frutti (015) an orange colour - lovely  for spring/summer but not too bright
-Pink Truffle (001) - a gorgeous brown -toned nude.
-Berry Smoothie (050) - pink - berry colour with a little bit of glitter
-Cotton Candy (045) - pale pink. I have been wearing this for school for a subtle bit of colour and to protect my lips.


Firstly, I'll give a quick review before I show the swatches. I was extremely surprised at how pigmented these were. I expected them to be more like tinted lip balms (despite the Colourburst advertising - duh!) but instead I found them more like a lip stick in terms of pigmentation.
The only shade I haven't worn loads is Tutti -Frutti, however, I did buy this for spring/summer so it's not that I don't like the shade.
Secondly, they are wonderfully moisturising, even after the colour has gone they feel so nourishing as they contain mango, shea and coconut butter which is brilliant as it means that you can skip lip balm. They have a lovely shine to them but aren't sticky so are a great alternative to gloss which I love but can't wear it with my hair down on a windy day - ergh, long hair struggles.
The only thing that would make them better is if they lasted slightly longer, however, they are really easy to apply even without a mirror so I just top them up every few hours.

Here are the swatches (I apologize that they aren't brilliant and my mouth looks weird but you can see the colour)

I hope you liked this post, I would highly recommend these lip butters, they are £7.99 but usually stores such as Boots and Superdrug have offers on brands such as Revlon. 

I'd love to try some more colours so if you have any suggestions let me know!

Be Careful Who You Bully? No.

I'm hoping this doesn't come off as a frustrated, teenage rant. When I first saw this challenge I began to think about this and more recently, my timeline has been cluttered with these posts. You probably know the sort "Everyone doing it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜© Be careful who you bully challenge πŸ‘€ post 2 pictures of yourself.. 1 old, 1 recent.. Watch how people react to your transformation😷😱😩 Copy this to your pageπŸ˜‡ " .
I was recently tagged and rather than just sit and think about it like a person probably should, I thought that if I can't use this platform to express my concerns with social media, what should I use it for?
Before I get started, I know that the vast majority didn't post these pictures in spite or are in anyway related to what this post is about, I know for a fact my friends have done it to show how they have grown and changed over the years; to be perfectly honest, I think that side of it is sweet. 
What I don't find sweet is this increasingly selectiv…

Gillette Venus Snap Razor

I've only ever used one razor, the Gillette Venus one with the soap bars. I can't remember what that's called but I'm sure you know what I mean. However, whenever I go on holiday, the heads ALWAYS SNAP! Therefore, for my recent trip abroad, I decided to pick up one of the new travel razors by Venus. I am very glad that I did. 
The razor works in the same way as the normal ones with soap bars, you simply wet the razor (or skin) and shave. However, I found that this need far less water than the usual razors and I didn't cut myself once in fortnight I used it (a common occurrence for me) if glided just as well, if not better, than my usual razors and the pink spongy pad at the end made it easy to grip. Despite being shoved around in the luggage, the blue case it came in stayed perfectly intact and I think this would be great for any travelling at all, whether it's just in your handbag or in a suitcase on an aeroplane.  
The only issue I did have with it was that the…

'Lads' Trip to Skeggy - Travel Tips for Teens

This post is a little late in the writing but as summer is coming up and many teenagers will have some free time and be considering a mini break with their friends, I thought this might be useful. During February half term, my friends and I (4 in total) took the train and visited Skegness for 2 nights and three days. Here I thought I would give you a brief outline of our trip and some tips and tricks to make everything run smoothly and not break the bank!
We chose to use Booking.com to compare hotels and ended up choosing the North Parade B&B, we got two twin rooms, both of which had ensuites. After reading the reviews, it seemed to have friendly staff and was in the perfect location: a 10 minute walk from the train station and right on the sea front so easy to access everything, which is something to consider if you don't drive. Another thing I would definitely recommend is calling the hotel you choose to stay in if you're under 18 or even 21, some of the places we looked…
