EOS- my new new love :)

kay lemme tell you the story first.. i got excited when i reached Oxford Circus UO because i was finally gna get my hands on the eos lipbalms and i asked a sales assistant that was near the door if she knew where they would be located in the store and she said she didnt know because she just returned from holiday so my face was like =S

i went upstairs to the sale section and i was looking at where the like accessorise's? were and i couldnt see them, then i turned into another section of the store..


there was a whole bowl of them! they wasnt like the ones you get in a packet.. it was already out, but still sealed (see my picture for reference)

soooooo i dont know if i "apply" (i dunno if thats the right word btw) to get the free samples =S

but anyhow im gna just wait and see.

Simple's Lipbalm && Softlips

I bought these two lipbalms on my last visit to westfield shopping centre and superdrug was having a 3 for 2 offer on all skincare.


Simple: SPF 15, it doesnt say how much of the product you get..

Softlips: SPF 20, 2g

You can see from the picture that the Softlips tube is thinner and longer and this can be seen as an advantage, however the Simple lipbalm was more easier to apply onto my lips, as the Softlips lipbalm, because of how slim it is I had to apply it twice as much compared to the Simple lipbalm.

^ Because of that reason I like the Simple one more, but i wouldn't totally out the Softlips lipbalm because of that one reason.

Ft. 17's mint choc chip (i think anyways)
my thoughts: the handle was kinda short so it was hard to apply the polish on my nails, but its probably because im so used to the Barry M nail polishes and that certain handle..

Anyways, i was reading some blogs, well looking at some blogs and are my NOTD's seem boring compared to everyone elses, as they've got konad stampings on theirs etc. Ive got a konad kit with just one plate and two konad special nail polishes and when i stamp the design onto my nail it isnt very flattering atall! I still have to practise so bare with me all..

oh yeh did anyone watch the England v USA world cup match?. erghh talk about annoying!!

Ft. Jade Stone (NP083)
Sorry for the messy application!
Ive wanted this nail polish for awhile now and when i got it i was excited, but the consistancy was a bit too runny and so difficult to apply.. thats why its messy as im kinda used to the barry m nail polishes.. but i love the colour dont get me wrong :)
Till next time, Cotton x
