About Me

My photo
I currently study and live in Birmingham and am in my second year of university, undertaking a degree in media and communication. I used to blog (about fashion, style, clothes etc.) but for various reasons stopped. However, I now find myself at a point where I have more developed and informed opinions on an array of different things, including the fashion industry. This blog is not going to be photos of outfits and clothes, but my view on a multitude of topics surrounding the fashion industry. Fashion is something that I love but as media undergraduate I want to write articles that avoid the wishy washy adoration so commonly reflected in fashion blogs and magazines. It's interesting to look a little further and dig a littler deeper.

pretty pout

So I was sitting on the sofa looking through ASOS and came across a variety of lipsticks that I would love to try out. My love for nude tones comes through in my choices, I just think they're really understated and there is a shade to suit every skin tone. And, if paired with the right shadow and liner they can work all year round in every season. They are all at different price points, but I try not to focus on the price but on the product itself. I do think its possible to find a good product at an affordable price, but you have to try out a lot of different products before you find the right one. Yes, products by mac or nars may be better quality, but it doesn't mean you can't find other branded products are of the same standards. I would like to test them all out but unfortunately my budget doesn't stretch that far, however I will try out the rimmel london moisture renew lipstick as I have heard lots of lovely things about it. Have you tried any of these products? What are your views?
