The products I wouldn’t write home about ♥

Products I would not repurchase NAKED Flushed Lime Crime Bourjois Bronzer

Good morning class,

Today I want to have a chat about something I don’t usually mention over here on my blog. I’m going to talk about the products in my collection that I would not repurchase. Usually, I like to keep things fairly positive, because I don’t really enjoy talking about the negative. However, you can’t go through life being positive all the time and I think it’s good to share with you the products I don’t like to show that I’m not just a ‘serial raver’.

So, the following products are ones which I have in my collection that are either empties or I just can’t use them any longer for one reason or another, OR I’m not a HUGE fan and I probably wouldn’t repurchase them when I run out.

It doesn’t mean that the brand is bad in any way, in fact, it doesn’t necessarily mean the product is bad. It simply means that in my opinion the product did not work for me. You may love these products – and that’s A-OK!

50 Shades of PINK! (My Lipstick Collection & Swatches – Pink Shades) ♥

50 Shades of Pink Grey Lipstick collection pinks

 

Good morning class,

As you can see from the amazingly beautiful (or horrific if you’re Tom) photo above, this is my pink lipstick collection.

I thought that because the 50 Shades of Grey movie was so good, and I love a good play on words, and I have about a billion pink lipsticks, that I would do a wee post about them!

There’s going to be minimal talking – if you get me talking about each and every lipstick i’ll be here all day! – but if you want to know about a certain lipstick or a certain brand then let me know in the comments and I’ll get back to you ASAP or I can do another blog post about it! Mmkay?

Right. Let’s do this. Just a wee disclaimer – this was collected over a period of like my entire life (although there are a few missing which are at school, and there are some which I’ve lost/thrown out/given away) so I’m not trying to brag or anything and these were pretty much all bought with my own money etc etc.

This took like HOURS to do, so I really apologize that one picture isn’t named right (I will correct this as we go along) and I have split the lipsticks into different shades of pink, but some of the colours would’ve probably been better suited to a different group. So if some are a little out of place, deal with it. 😉

Baby shades 

I absolutely LOVE baby pink colours! Although I’m shying away from them now that I’m a little bit more (fake) tanned because they really wash me out. Some of these shades are absolutely gorgeous though! I will forever love baby pinks ❤
