Just Peachy



I made my first MUA purchase from my local Superdrug last week and after a little bit of deliberation over what to try first I decided that I wanted to add to my lipstick collection the most. I already have my perfect red (No 7 Moisture Drench in Siren) and a nice rosy pink from Benefit (Lady's Choice) that I'm using day to day so I went for something a little different for me and picked up this peachy pink colour, which is Shade 15 'Juicy'. For £1 you really can't go all that wrong and as I am on a very strict budget it was nice for me to be able to treat myself to a little something without having to worry about where the money for rent/food/bills is going to come from. I really love the shade and am so keen to wear when the sun comes out! I do wish that the colour was a little more pigmented but I'm really not going to complain about it for £1, I find it quite buildable anyway. The only real problem I have is that I currently have quite dry lips and this does seem to highlight that. It's not that it's drying, it just clings to the dry bits if you know what I mean (sounds pretty vile, sorry!). Does anyone have any advice on quick, cheap and effective ways to get rid of my chapped lips so I can wear this lipstick without having to slather on tonnes of lip balm?


Overall, I would say this is definitely worth a try for £1, I will 100% be going back for more lipsticks and more products!

  1. When I'm washing my face I tend to gently rub my lips with a towel to get any flaky bits off, then use loads of lip balm afterwards. The lip balm actually gets chance to moisturise your lips rather than the flaky bits on the top then! x

  15. I'm looking for a new nude lip colour to use everyday, think I might have to try Superdrug for £1!

    Also I brush my lips with a toothbrush when Im brushing my teeth then cover them in Carmax afterwards, perfect for creating a smooth base for lippie x

  16. I've heard rubbing your lips with a soft toothbrush is really good for getting them super soft again.
    This colour is really pretty. And I love little treats that brighten your day without breaking the bank :)

    P.S I’m hosting a give away… Come check it out!

  18. I love MUA makeup...although it doesn't last long you cam't go wrong with a lipstick that's £1!
    I do get very chapped lip in winter and I know how annoying it can be! I use my toothbrush twice a week to lightly exfoliate my lips...but maybe you could try a natural lip scrub? You can make with cupboard ingredients...here is a good recipe...http://petitelefant.com/how-to-make-lip-scrub-at-home/
    Hope this helps!
