When shopping around TK Maxx for makeup and clothes the other day I could not resist this cute trio of Hello Kitty lipsticks (there were more shades available in store but I could not justify the entire collection) alongside my now beloved Measurable Difference Face & Body Bronzer.

My Hello Kitty obsession has led to me purchasing an abundance of themed stationary, plush toys and crockery, so when I found Hello Kitty cosmetics I was very pleased with myself indeed.

Considering the relatively low cost (from fifty pence to two pounds on sale), I found the lipsticks to be of a rather good quality and I selected a pink, brown and peach shade to take home with me.

The pink shade Baby Doll gives a lovely subtle shimmer, nice on its own or over a more bold lipstick. The brown shade Hittin The Block proves itself to be extremely bold, not really my colour as I am rather fair skinned but lovely on friends with a less pink skin tone (boo). Unfortunately, I found that the peach shade Urban Punk washed me out and proved to match my pale skin tone and hide my natural lip colour entirely!

Some may find it tacky but I find the graffiti print packaging very cute (an infantile word but very appropriate). However, as these lipsticks are cheaper than other high street brand cosmetics the casing is a bit flimsy.

The iconic and adorable Hello Kitty faces atop the lipsticks really make them stand out from my other lipsticks upon my makeup organiser, a serious cute overload amidst the Mac, Soap & Glory and Rimmel.

Have you ever tried any Hello Kitty cosmetics? Which shade would you choose from the trio?

Lush FUN in pink review

FUN By LUSH review IN PINK

This has got to be one of the most entertaining products Lush have brought out yet!

I decided to get my FUN by lush in pink (girly skin care stay winning). FUN is a delicious sweet smelling putty  that reminded me of the smells of candyfloss at the fairground and fruity shampoo, defined by lush as the “fruity, candy smells of childhood.” 

FUN is a mouldable putty available in a variety of colours. It has a huge variety of body and hair care uses. It can be used upon the entirety of your body, to wash the hair, as a bubble bath and to mould shapes when you are bored during wash time! It is also available in a variety of different scented FUN colours, as well as being offered in tri-colour rainbow-esque additions – I kind of want the mermaid FUN.

So, what do I think of the Lush FUN in pink?

What I love about this product is its longevity, the smallest amount lasted ages and it comes in a huge 200g slab. It really lathers up, creating lots of bubbles, perfect for entertaining the young and young-at-heart.

This product really brought me back to childhood as I moulded away, creating a variety of odd little shapes and models. Its name says it all, it really is a lot of fun!

Ingredients in FUN include talc for softening the skin, cornflour for its mouldability, glycerine for moisturisation and tonka absolute for that mouth-watering smell.

Overall, FUN is an amazing and unique product, promoting long-lasting giggles in the bathroom and maintaining a squeaky clean routine.  It is perfect for kids, brightening the bathroom, or if you just need a little bit more FUN in your life. Be sure to store it back safely with a twist in its biodegradable wrapper!

Have you tried FUN? What colours would you choose?
