-Red Lips & Train Reading-

Hi all! Over the past few weeks I have been obsessed with a red lip. I have tried many different lipsticks, liquid lips and what not from many brands but at the moment I am addicted to the Body Shop lipsticks. The lipsticks I have been using from them are from their Colour Crush range.

These lipsticks, I believe, are amazing and you only need to top them up a bit after eating a meal – which is something I don’t mind doing. They have a sheen to them, so are not matte. I have been using a lot of matte lipsticks and liquid lips lately (mainly from Kat Von D) but love the fact that these reds have a shine!

As you can see, I have two red shades which I switch between depending on how I feel or how bright a red I want.

The bright one is shade 101 (Red Siren) which is what I would class as a ‘red red’. The second one is shade 125 (Crazy Sexy Crimson) which is more of a deep crimson/burgundy colour – great for dark and wintry days. The bright one is excellent for a bold look. You can find the lipsticks here: Colour Crush


Shade on the left is 125 and shade on the right is 101.

So, to conclude this section of the post, these lipsticks are amazing if you want a rich deep or bright red colour with a shine and that pretty much lasts. You may just have to top up once or twice after a meal. I highly recommend them and have had quite a lot of compliments on them. 🙂

Now onto the second part of the post: train reading. I have been on a reading slump lately but got back into it when I downloaded a children’s novel on my kindle and took it on the train with me. I read it to and from work and have even stated reading a couple of chapters before bed too – to wind down and relax.

The book I am currently reading is called A Place Called Perfect by Helena Duggan. I’m over half-way through and so far I’m loving it. It’s original and I can’t wait to find out what happens in the end as it’s all starting to pick up now. Not that it was ever slow, because it definitely isn’t. Every page is exciting and fresh.

Reading on the train is something I always do to try and get back into reading. Instead of staring at Twitter or Instagram I put my phone away and pull out my kindle. It takes fifteen minutes for me to arrive at the station – which is enough time to get a chapter done, at least. So, the train has become one of my favourite places to read.

Where’s your favourite place to read and what are you reading currently?

Thank you for taking the time to view this post and I hope you have a wonderful and safe day/night~!
