Still in Love with Lilac: Ramble & Giveaway

Hello Everyone!

So I'm well aware that the lilac nail trend is fast becoming very 'last season', and lilac lips even less 'on trend', but I'm still a huge fan and just cannot seem to stop myself gravitating towards these pretty lilac shades...I'm determined not to abandon them!

It all started for me with Barry M's 129 Palest Lavender Lip Paint and my collection of lovely lilac cosmetics has expanded at rapid speed.

The newest additions to my collection (that I picked up in Superdrug last week!) are Revlon's lipgloss and nail varnish both entitled 'Lilac Pastille' (Priced at £6.49 and £6.29 respectively). I'm not quite sure how I have managed to avoid these two beauties until now, as they have been out for quite a few months and frequented the blogging world throughout the spring.

I have to admit that I was somewhat disappointed with the nail varnish, as it actually appears on the nails as more of a pale pink and takes three coats to get a perfect finish as it's thin and streaky. It's still a pretty colour none the less and over the weekend I jazzed it up with metallic tips using L.A Colour's Metallic Purple (Available for 99p from Beauty Base)
As modeled below by my sister... yes, we had matching Barbie nails for the weekend, sad I know!
Much less disappointing was the Lilac Pastille lipgloss. I honestly don't know how I've not purchased this before now.
The packaging is really nice, and feels expensive especially for a drugstore brand. The consistency is creamy and not sticky at all and the colour payoff is great (see below cringey lip-shot!).
It has a faint scent that reminds me of Parma Violets too which I'm a big fan of. It doesn't stay quite as long as I'd like it to on the lips but you can't have it all and on all other fronts I have to say it's a winner!

Here's a snap of the two together for good measure...

I have picked up another tube of the lipgloss to give away this week so if you'd like to win it then all you have to do is:

1. Be a follower of my Blog
2. Enter a comment telling me the name of your current favourite drugstore lipgloss
3. Don't forget to leave your email address so I can get in touch if you win!

The winner of last week's giveaway for the Eyeko polishes is:

Good luck and hope you're all having a fabulous week!

  67. Embarrassingly enough my favorite lip gloss is from the Lip Smackers line that everyone and their mother used when they were in elementary and middle school. I love the flavors and the colors too much to stop using them, even if they are marketed to girls almost ten years younger than me! On a different note, I thought your nails were fake because they looked professionally done. Good job!

  115. I love the Lóreal Glam Shine Reflextion in 174 Sheer Peach, it is such a great summer colour. I tend to pare it with Mac's Vegas Volt go get a more bold effect when I'm going out, but on a daily basis the gloss is more than enough! =D

    I loved this colours, as they are differet from what I'm used to. But I have wanted to try out something in that colourrange for a couple of months now.
