Plum Flushed - Maybelline Color Sensational

I'm really glad I tried this lip pen on a night out before writing a review! I have wanted a dark pink/purple lip colour for a while now. I prefer my lip colour to be matte so this one seemed like the right one. I chose 'Color Sensational' by Maybelline in shade 380-Plum Flushed.

My first problem was that I feel like I'm applying way more of the product to get the right colour than I should be, but once I got the colour right I really loved it. It's more pink than I had wanted but It still looked really nice (I didn't realise how dried out it made my lips look until I saw pictures.)

Even with a colour protector over the top I found that very quickly the colour would be almost all gone from my lips and I would constantly be re-applying. I ended up going over the colour with another lipstick my friend had half way through the night because I got so fed up with re-applying only for it to come off straight away.

If the colour stayed on longer and if it applied better, then  I would be very happy with the lip pen. It smells AMAZING (raspberry yum!) which though it isn't something I look for was nice nonetheless.  For £5.99 I don't think it was very worth it. (waaaa)

What lip pens have you tried that have been good?

Comfy New Year!

Herrooooo! and Happy New Year!!

Once again my new year resolution is to get this blog going! Last year I quit because I am a big baby and didn't keep on top of my uni work. But this year as it is my final year I am going to be a good girl, do all of my work and keep on top of this blog as I am sure the extra experience will come in handy when I face the real world in May when uni finishes waaa!

Anywhooooo!! The other day I went for a quick look around the sales and found NOTHING! but i did find this amazing over-sized jumper in ARK. They had in in this light pink or cream, and i instantly fell for the pink. This wasn't in the sale but I thought £19.99 was an amazing price as it's such a nice jumper. Also I find ARK can be very expensive with some of their clothes so this was a cheery cheap buy!

I am awful at taking pictures of myself and haven't quite found the best place in my new student house to do so yet. So bare with me!

What shop have you found amazing sale items in?!
