Lilac Lips & Literature Love.

Friday, 25 January 2013
I've found myself having a bit of a lilac crush recently. I'm not all too sure where this new found love for lilac came from, but I feel like it's coming just in time for the summer.
I thought I'd be a bit wild and try out a lilac lipstick, so went straight to Barry M as my first thought for a cheap brand which would have such a bold colour choice. ( I am on a strict spending diet, I am so poor right now!)
This lip colour is 129, Palest Lavender. I won't lie, I can't give it a great review. The colour goes on in a way which shows every dry imperfection, and its staying time is minimal. An hour perhaps? It's more shiny than matte and feels very slick, like lipgloss. Perfect for some, but not for me.
For under £5 I can't complain too much, although I can't help but think I should have perhaps gone with MAC's Lavender Whip or Inglots Slim Gel Lipstick in Number 65, both slightly more expensive options.

I then went to Waterstones to pick up some reading, and was totally drawn in (hold back the shock,) by a cover.
I know, I know. Don't judge a book by it's cover.
But I know the book, I know the story, and I loved the cover. It's my favourite Disney, Alice in Wonderland. The most trippy and extravagant of all stories.When I saw it in this beautiful leather purple binding with it's golden bookmark, classic illustrations, cream paper and pink detailing... well, I had to have it. Even at £15. I actually wanted the larger £25 one, but contained myself. (Matt if you're reading this, birthday present please!!)
I realise £15 is a lot to spend on a book, but I feel like this will end up being more of a keepsake treasure, it's so beautiful and the story is so timeless and classic. And it matches the lipstick.

What do you guys think? What's your favourite childhood story or book?

  2. I recently bought that Barry M lippie too and thought the same thing. It was cheap but I doubt I will be wearing it very often; the colour is a bit wishy-washy. x
