Colorburst Lip Butter by Revlon

There has been a lot of hype surrounding Revlon lip butters. I got my hands on one a few months ago and thought I would give you my two cents about it. A lot of people don't like these because the colour seems to disappear after a few hours. I have to agree, the pigmentation isn't particularly strong. Their texture is more like a balm than a lipstick.

The lip butter I have is in the colour Brown Sugar, and I like it a lot. It's the perfect sheer nude. I like pairing it with a peach blush and smokey eyes. Of course, it's a lip butter, so I understand that it's not going to last very long. I probably wouldn't repurchase at full price, because they have a rather expensive price tag here in NZ. 



YAY! It's holiday season, my favourite part of the year. It's time to whip out a tree, bake a mountain of festive goodies and light your stock of festive candles. Unfortunately, putting up the tree is not happening this year at my house - we're spending Christmas in India...

So, since I've no tree to decorate, I decided to make a wreath instead. This is a great craft to do with kids - all you need is a cereal box, old newspaper (or a magazine), a hole punch, ribbon, a pair of scissors and a stapler. The instructions can be found here. This is my version (modified, slightly). I'm very proud of it.

I'm so excited, I've been eating gingerbread cookies non-stop!
