Excuses, Excuses

So you might be wondering if I have a decent excuse for blogging so little during the summer? I should be blogging more seen as I don't have college work, but just to prove that I have a somewhat legitimate excuse I took these pictures to show you what my rooms looks like at the moment!
 Yep I'm decorating! It's been a pretty long process as I used to have wallpaper, so that had to be stripped and the whole room had to be plastered. ( Luckily I have a very nice uncle who is a builder so we didn't have to pay extortionate prices to plaster)
 I painted the ceiling yesterday and today I'm doing the woodwork! Exciting eh?
 Paint and whatnot. My old childhood sleeping bag being used to stop my desk getting paint all over it!
I HAVEN'T HAD CURTAINS FOR THREE WEEKS! I had to take the rail down so it could be plastered, then I was waiting for the plaster to dry and I can't put them up till I've painted! ARGH! As excited as I am to be getting my room decorated I am seriously missing having a lie in!
I will more than likely put pictures up when the whole thing is done, here's hoping it won't be much longer than a week!

Oh Primer Potion, I Think I Might Love You...

With the purchase of my Naked Palette came my Primer Potion. And a magical potion it is! Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration but I like this enough that I have put aside the money to buy the full size one when this runs out.

 This is one of those products that you don't know how much you need it until you have it. I was always very skeptical about the need of a primer but now I can't do without it! Even if I'm only wearing a little liner or something I still use this because it evens out this skin on the eyelid beauitfully!
In short I seriously would recommend this product. I'm curious about wether it's the product or the use of a high end primer I'm enjoying so much though! Hmmmm

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

I'm such a bad blogger. Between it being very busy with friends for summer and decorating my rooms my little corner of the Internet has been rather abandoned! But today is my first free day of summer so far and I'm going to pre-write a few posts to try and keep on top of things.
I've had this less than two weeks and I cannot stop using this! I seriously really like this and will be buying more colours as soon as they come back into stock!
 The packaging is fine, it does the job. I like the applicator as you can easily apply this without a mirror, but because it's pointed you can really outline and shape your lips if you feel like it.
I won't compare this the the Revlon Lip Butters as they are just totally different, the only thing I will say is that it is 100% justifiable to own colours from both products! I also won't compare this to the Clinique Chubby Sticks as I have never used them ( not for lack of wanting)

I love how hydrating this is, if find that most balm type products have a really bad lasting power but this smashes the stereotype which is wonderful. I wouldn't say the stain lasts a really long time, however it doesn't fair spectacularly well with food and drink. I really like this and intend to but a couple more whilst they are still on an the introductory offer of £6, normally £8, so a little saving!
