Wednesday Wishlist Mememe

Hi Guys,

Welcome back to another Wednesday when I do nothing but drool over even more makeup that I do not need! Mememe is a brand that I have heard very little about. I have read a small handful of reviews and I think, once a couple of years ago I may have seen them in Boots. I do not own a single thing from the brand but I do check their website fairly often the decide I will buy from them the next payday. Somehow it never happens. A lot of products on the website are currently discounted but there normal prices are similar to Max Factor products (if you don't buy Max Factor this is basically the more expensive end of the drugstore).

Here is my Wishlist and remember I have also shared my wishlist for a number of other brands and those can be found here.

So let us begin.

Arch Angel



A lot of their products have slightly 'different' names but you can probably guess this is a brow product. I know that brows really are not that exciting but I have quite a small selection of brow products at the moment and would really like to extend the range of what I am using. This is one of their top sellers and it would be so much fun to give it a go.

Fat Cat Mascara



I think the name is what really drew me to this, like the arch angel it is a top seller and it looks amazing. As the name implies this is meant to give fantastic volume, but still clump free. I also loce the look of the packaging - it just looks so unique! This is also just £3.99 at the moment, may be I need to get in there and buy this quick.

The Little Angels Collection



The 'little angels' are all tints and from what I have read (there are a few reviews on these if you look hard enough) they are great dupes for the benefit ones. In this there are two shades you could use for lips or blush: a true pink and a red and two highlights one is cool toned the other warm toned. This whole kit is just £10 so this is a huge saving compared with the benefit ones!

Long Wear Satin Lip Cream in Morello Silk



I really wanted to talk about their liquid foundation here but looking at the colour range they appear to just have two shades and I cannot take a chance on that. Inside I have picked the gorgeous dark purple lip that will look fantastic for nights out. These sound really moisturizer and even though the shade range of these lipsticks is small they have some great colours. These are discounted again and are selling for £6.50.

30 Days 30 Lips Day Six Feat Laura Paige




Hi Guys,

So welcome back to another 30 Days 30 Lips Post and today I will be talking about a brand that is fairly new to me and that is Laura Paige. A few days ago I featured a mini haul of this brand and I bought a one of their Matte Lip Colours in Coral Reef. I put this on at around midday and it stayed perfect around three hours - I was really impressed. The lipstick cost me just £1.99 and I can see my living in this.

I will be buying more from the range and I will be including a full review of the products in the next few days.

Please enjoy my posing and remember all of my 30 Days 30 Lips Posts Can Be Found here.

10 Little Secrets Tag: Week One

Hi Guys,

So the second tag post today will be the first half of the 10 little secrets tag. This is another fun one that I found on my journey through the internet. Please enjoy the tag and I tag all of you! Remember you can find all of my other tags here.

What is one product that makes you feel like a million dollars?

A really good pale shimmer shadows that can be used as a brow bone highlight, on the base of the lid and under the eye. This can be used so easily, and makes a huge difference.



What is your skincare secret?

This is so simple and cheap, just baby wipes! I use these for everything.

What is your haircare secret?

I used the Honey Bee Strong products from Herbal Essences and in particular their intense hair mask. I use that mask once a week and it really helps with my split ends and helps keep my curls in check. These really are great products and are really cheap.



What is your diet rule?

I have been living the Slimming World lifestyle for a couple of months now and I have lost 22lbs and I will continue to lose weight this way. This is the easiest thing I have ever done and it is a lifestyle change as oppose to a diet. The real key to this is cooking from scratch and just including lean meat in all food.

Workout Tips?

I don't workout that much, I much prefer just to take long walks every Sunday with my boyfriend.

40 Beauty Questions Tag: Week Two

Hi Guys,

Please enjoy the second week of the 40 Beauty Questions Tag and remember you can find all of the Tags I have completed here. Okay so let's get into it.

What is your Favourite Drugstore Brand?

I go between two: Rimmel and Maybelline. Rimmel are best for foundations and other base makeup, whereas Maybelline have some fantastic lip products and some amazing eye products. I can't wait to try more from both ranges.



Do you Wear Fake Lashes?

No. I just can't get them on.

Is there any kind of Makeup you can't leave Home Without?



There is so much! At the very least I have to be wearing mascara and eyeliner. I just look so odd if I don't wear both. I think most makeup lovers would say mascara is an absolute essential (unless they are blessed with long, dark lashes).

What's your most Cherished Makeup Product?

This is going to sound weird but it is an old Barry M Lipstick in Pillar Box Red. This was the first lipstick that I ever owned and it was bought by an old friend of mine and after seven years is still good. This is nearly all gone but I just love it!

How Often do you Shop for Makeup, a Huge Haul or a Couple of Bits?

I buy makeup a couple of times a weeks and I tend to buy one or two products at once. I am a bugger for buying lipsticks and eye shadows!

That is all we have for this week, look next week to see the next five questions in tag.

What are your answers to these questions? Let me know in the comments below.

A Small Laura Paige Haul...



Hi Guys,

Since I have blogging I have read so many blogs and heard about a huge range of makeup that I never even knew existed before and one such brand in Laura Paige. I read a very complimentary review about the products and I knew my local Co-operative Pharmacy sold them so I got three things.

City Colour Matte Lipstick in Coral Reef



This comes in a black square tube with a see through top and the colour is a beautiful peachy orange. From swatching it and playing around this seems a little dry but I will try it out properly before reviewing it.

Automatic Pencil Liner in Brown



I love automatic pencil liners! I hate sharpening and I don't why all pencils can't be retractable. This again like the lipstick appears a little dry, however I find that helps with the staying power and I can't wait to use this.

Long Lash Mascara in Black



The packaging kind of puts me off this one, it looks like Laval and I do not like Laval. The wnad looks fairly good though and I seem to get on quite well with keeper mascaras!

Have you tried any of these products? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

What I Keep in My Elf Essentials Palette




Hi Guys,

Now I know I talk of ELF all of the time. Their products are fantastic (or most of them are) and they have such a huge range. I really love ELF eye products ranging from their eyeliners - see my review here, to their mascaras and also their shadows.All of the ranges including essential, studio and the mineral line are just fantastic for it.

ELF has almost a 'freedom palette' system called Elements in which you can pick pans of lips and eye products and add them to a compact. All of the compacts fit four products. Each lip/eye product costs £1.50 and the compact also costs £1.50. So basically I got a quad in a compact with a large mirror for £7.50 not too bad.I'm sorry it's so dirty!

Let me know in the comments what you keep in yours!

The shadows I have in mine are:
  • Ivory - as the name implies this is an off white with a little shimmer in there. Not too much that it falls out or makes it glittery it is more of a pearl finish. This is my most used of the products and I love to use it as a base/highlight. 
  • Sage - this is a beautiful green that works great as an accent colour or even in the crease for a nice natural eye. This shade blends beautiful and really pulls out the green tones in my hazel eyes. 
  • Aubergine - this is my favourite shade! It is the most luxurious plumy purple that I always get loads of compliments on when I wear it. This works great for me in a crease for an evening out and really pulls on the brown elements of my eyes. 
  • Navy - this is really a mid tone blue and not as dark as the name implies. This is a shade I have worn a number of times and feel it is a great replacement for charcoal gray and gives a great pop of colour. This also works great as an eyeliner on the upper lash line.

A Couple of Rimmel Bits...




Hi Guys,

So I have been blogging twice a day for a couple of weeks now and with that comes reading a tonne of other amazing beauty blogs and one lipstick just kept turning up everywhere this lipstick is Rimmel's Moisture Renew In Love With Ginger. I have never tried one of the lipsticks from the range before so during a trip to my local pharmacy ( it only has a Rimmel Stand) I decided to pick this up.

Also after my bad experience with Barbara Daly Eye liner (you can find my Review HERE) I decided I needed to try something else out. I have heard amaziong things about the Rimmel Scandaleyes liquid liner. This is waterproof and as Black eyeliner is my colour of choice that's what I picked.

As always I will review these products once I have had a really good go.

Have you tried either of these products? Let me know in the comments below.

Primark £1 False Nails!



Hi Guys,

False nails are not something that I wear that often but when I do I want them to last and I do not want to spend half of my wages on them.With most of the previous nails I had tried costing around £7.99 for a set I decided to purchase a pair of £1 ones for Primark around a year ago and I have never looked back.

Not only are these nails cheap they also have a massive selection of styles and with their new makeup range P.S love in stores (check out my mascara review here) they have more than ever. The first pair I bought were the most amazing lady bird design and since them I have had polka dot, ombre, neon and musical notes!

These nails are short and come with a great glue that could easily apply two sets and after around 7 days they just start to come away fairly naturally. As with all false nails they do leave your real nails a little weak underneath and as a result I normally wait a few weeks between each set so my poorly nails can heal.


The Picture above shows my current Primark backups, I will be buying some more in the next few days.

Have you tried these nails, what did you think? Let me know in the comments below.

ELF Lip Lock Pencil a Review



Hi Guys,

So I recently bought a few things from ELF and one of these was the Lip Lock Pencil. I used to adore lipcote but recently I have become so fed up of it drying my lips and stinging me I have been looking for another solution. I have heard some good things about the ELF seal and lock products. I decided this would be the next thing to try.

This is meant to stop the lipstick feathering. This is a see through product with the same consistency of a lip balm and needs to be drawn around the lip liner. It can also be drawn onto the lips, before you apply your lipstick and this should make the colour more vibrant and hold it for longer.

I have given this a good try to make sure I have a fair opinion. In one word this product is rubbish. It may stop the lipstick feathering but a normal lip liner could do this. It is more about creating a barrier than having any sort of amazing product to do this. This product does not hold the lipstick longer nor does it make it more vibrant. I understand this is only £3.95 but this is nearly £1.50 more than I would spend on Lipcote and it just doesn't do the job.

I really don't like slamming products but I am afraid this is a definite miss for me.

There is one benefit though - it doesn't need sharpening it's retractable.

Have you tried this what did you think? Let me know in the comments below.

The Naked Palette.. My Favourite Shadows

Hi Guys,



I was considering writing a full review for this product but then I realised there was very little point. We all know how  pigmented and buttery soft these shadows are. Instead I thought I would talk about my favourites from the palette and how I use them instead.

  1. Sin - This is by far my favourite shadow from the collection. I love this shimmery pink shade as a base and it looks great just used alone. It blends very easily and also makes an excellent inner corner highlight. This is a shimmer shadow, but there isn't a tonne of glitter here so it remains wearable.
  2. Buck - This is possibly the most practical shade from the palette and I tend to go between this and the Natural Collection's Crushed Walnut (she my review of these shadows here) for my brows. Buck lasts all say and does not need to be set with a wax or a gel, which is a huge bonus. This also looks great in the crease. This is one of the few mattes in the palette.
  3. Half Baked - Similar to Sin this is another shadow that I love to use as a base, but this is definitely my 'night out' shade. This product is a true gold that sit beautiful on the lids and creates almost a 24 carat gold look. This shade is fantastic and I have used a huge chunk of this shade. This is something bewteen a shimmer and a metallic finish.
  4. Toasted - I have only recently discovered this shade I think before I just thought it was a standard brown but after using it a few times I can see it has some beautiful tones. This works very well as an accent shade and the more I use this the more impressed I am.  This is another shimmer shadow. 

What are your favourite shadows from The Naked Palettes? Let me know in the comments below.

Barbara Daly High Impact Eye Definer Review

Hi Guys,

Welcome to my post on what is possibly the most disappointing product ever! I enjoy felt tip style liners and a couple of weeks ago I feature a Small Tesco Haul here, where I explained I had purchased a Barbara Daly Eyeliner Pen. This is my first buy of anything from the range and I was really excited to try it. I had sat and thought about how to incorporate it in the blog by doing something more than a review and I thought you know what I will do a tutorial. I have just swiped this liner across my upper lash line 22 times (after the third go I began to count) and it still has not gone any where near making a 'high impact' in fact it does not make any impact at all!



I was so disappointed that I didn't even finish by makeup before taking the picture. As you can see there is a very faint line there - if this was what I got after one go with it that would be ok but after that many...

This has not been  open very long at all and the lid has been securely on the product at all times. As this  had to be used on my eye so many time I am now sure and it will be an uncomfortable task to remove.

I apologise that this review really isn't pleasant ( and I really wanted it to be) but I would not recommend this, unless you like your liner to be very subtle.

Fighting Friday Barry M Blusher Vs Bourjois Little Round Pot



Hi Guys,

Now you may be reading this thinking wait.. these products are not overly similar why has she put them together? Well the reason is over the last couple of weeks these two have become my everyday blushes and I thought I would let them battle it out to see which one is really my favourite.

Packaging

Packaging is a big deal to me I like products that will conveniently sit in a handbag and that are convenient for all sorts of travel. Out of the two the Little Round Pot is quite a bit smaller, it also has a mirror. They both comes with brushes however they are not one I would ever use.

Round 1 To Bourjois

Price

The Little Pot retails for £7.99 and contains 2.5g of product where as the Barry M retails for £4.59 and contains 7g of product. So nearly three times the product and it costs nearly half as much?

Round 2 To Barry M

Colour Pay Off



Now we have to remember here that the Barry M Blusher (blusher - I don't think I've used that word for about five years before buying this product) is darker, but we will see what happens during the swatch test. Looking at the pictures of my hairy arm - sorry guys swatched inappropriately- I feel they both do just as well and the formula is very similar.

Round 3 is a Draw

Blendability

Both of these products blend really well but my general experience of the two tells me that I need to work at the Barry M a little more than the Bourjois.

Round 4 to Bourjois

Staying Power

Something I really like about the Barry M is that it seems to almost stain the cheeks once it is applied and blended in the morning it will stick at it all day. The Bourjois does last but if I wanted it to stay perfect I would need to reapply during the day.

Round 5 to Barry M



Looking at the results we have a draw! The Barry M is better value for money but the Bourjois is easier to blend and is much more convenient. I'd say just buy both.

Have you tried either of these products? What did you think? Let me know in the comments below.

30 Days 30 Lips Day Five







Hi Guys,


Welcome to another one of my 30 Days 30 Lips posts and today it is the turn of Rimmel to star here. Today I have picked (another) fairly neutral lip in the form of the Apocalips Celestial. This is one of my favourite pinks and my most used of the Lip Lacquers. The glossy finish lasts for around an hour and once that has gone the product leaves a lovely little stain on the lips. I promise my next post will contain something a little more exciting. To see my other 30 lips posts check here.

Here are the pictures of my shameless posing!


My Top Three Mascaras!

Hi Guys,

I am a HUGE mascara fan I think they make a huge difference to your eye shape and really sharpen your makeup look in general. I could go without foundation or liner, but without mascara I would just look weird to say the least. I am very much a drugstore makeup girl - as your may have already realised - so all of these are purse friendly.

  1. 17 Falsifeye - I have been buying this product for nearly three years and have always been super impressed. I but this in extreme black and love the way this makes my lashes look and feel great. It gives great length, curl and volume. This does not flake throughout the day and dries pretty quickly. The brush can get a little gunky but this happens with all mascara and a quick wipe with a tissue solves this problem. I bough this for £6.99 and it is only available at Boots.
  2. Max Factor Mega Volume - This is a recent addition to my makeup collection and I have to say I am really impressed. This has a slightly odd shaped brush but this really seems to help with the volume. I use this on top of  lengthening mascara and feel the combination of the two is just fantastic. This colour is a really good black that does not flake. This is not the best for the length but the curl and volume is so worth it. This is the most expensive of these mascaras and sells any where from £8.99 - £10.99.
  3. ELF Lash Extending Mascara - This is only £3.95? WOW! This has the lovely rubberised style brush that I really enjoy. These are great at separating the lashes and always stop clumping, and this style of brush does not hold onto a lot of product eitherThe formula is really black and does not flake. The one issue I have with this is that it dries really quickly, so you best get in there soon with your second coat!

MUA Wishlist!

Hi Guys,

MUA is brand that I bought from quite consistently about a year ago and I just seemed to go off them.Since blogging properly again I see all these amazing comments about them and I just feel that maybe I need to go back to them and so I have compiled a wishlist. Let me know if you have tried any of these products and if so what you thought.

MUA Pro Base Fixing Spray

Last year I complete a review on the concealer, highlighter and foundation from this range which you can find here. The outcome of that review was generally that I loved it. If this spray is as good as the range I feel I really need to go back to it. I have had trouble finding reviews so I really will be going at this alone, but I think it will be worth it in the long run. At £5 this is one of the more expensive products available from them.

The Undress Your Skin Highlighter

One of my friends was using this recently and I could not believe the amazing work it did as an inner corner highlight. This is really a great product that I know will also look fantastic on the brow bone. The Undress Your Skin range is generally one that I have heard amazing things about. When I have swatched the foundation I have been fairly unimpressed but this looks amazing. At £3 it is a bargain.

The MUA Pearl Finish £1 Eyeshadows

Weirdly, I have never used one of these shadows, even thought they are raved about all the time and are only £1. I have no interest in the matte shadows as I have used some of their mattes in a palette before and I really didn't like them, but you often find if a brand falls down with it mattes they make it up with their pearl finishes! To think I could buy every single one for £25 (just £1.50 more than benefit box of powder) is insane.  It is just a shame they only have numbers not names.

MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Kooky

I feel like I have really saved the best until last here. I have heard some of the best things about these lacquers concerning the finish and staying power - but they are so hard to get hold of. I have been to my local Superdrug a number of times and can never get them. Kooky is a gorgeous true purple that some people have referred to as a 'halloween shade' but I love true perfect lips. This is also have the price of the Bourjois Velvet Lacquers and the Apocalips products.

What products are you after from the line? Let me know in the comments below.

Wednesday Wishlist: River Island The Handbag Collection

Hi Guys,

I must admit that I started my research for the wishlist wanting to show bags from a number of different places. When I looked onto the River Island site first though, I just knew that I could write full post just from there. They have so many pretty things!

Mini Light Pink Structured Bag £30

This was the first bag that I noticed when I looked at the website. The colour is fantastic and even though this is not the most practical, I could certainly handle that. This also looks like it has bags of room so it would fit everything I need.


Light Blue Structured Bag £45

This bag is beautiful and would be fantastic for work. This blue would go with so many outfits and would be a great alternative to the standard black tote. This would get dirty quite easily but if you are careful this could also look great with those summer dresses!


Laser Cut Structured Bag £70

This bag is the perfect monochrome creation and is noticed by all friends and colleagues a like. This bag appears to have so much space in it that I could keep my entire makeup collection and still have room. This is the type of bag that could easily be taken to the work place or accompany me on a dinner date. It is just a shame is a little more expensive than the other ones I have noted I don't know if I could justify the price tag!
White Gem Encrusted Mini Flap Over Bag £30

I feel like I have really saved the best until last. If we are being totally honest this bag is in now way practical. Not only is it white so would get into a horrible mess far too easily you just know something would happen to those gems... But for the first couple of uses this would really turn heads and I think that is all that matters.

What bags have you been liking recently? Let me know in the comments below.

40 Beauty Questions: Week One

Hi Guys,

Welcome to another Tag Tuesday Post. Today I will be starting the 4o Beauty Questions Tag. As you know I like to keep my posts short and sweet so I will just be doing the first five questions today, as with all my tag posts I tag you and please feel free to leave links to your blog posts below. So let's begin!

Do you remember your first makeup item?



Yes when I was ten I was bought a set of seven coloured lip balms that smelt like crayons. They came in plastic rings and has a flip lid - one of them was sky blue and another green. Soon they went bad and has to be thrown away but from that moment I was in love.

Describe your perfect mascara, have you found it?

My perfect mascara has a great big chunky wand and rubberised bristles. I have actually recently found it and strangely it is from Primark. I find the P.S Love volumising mascara ideal for my lashes and it costs £2! Find my Review here.

What kind of coverage do you prefer from a foundation?

This always used to be full coverage as I have freckles. As time has gone by though I have started to like lighter coverage products and currently I am leaning more towards CC creams as they let my freckles shine through (I have learnt to love them over the years).

Favourite High End Brand?

I must make a confession here: I own very little high end makeup. At this stage in my life I feel there are so many great products at the drug store that they are just necessary. I own of few items from Urban Decay and a couple from Benefit I would say I like both equally.

What cosmetics brands have you always wanted to try but still haven't?






Don't get me started. This is mainly brand they have in the USA but not here. One in particular is Wet n Wild - their eye shadows look amazing. I also love what I have heard about Physician's Formula. Please come to the UK!


Tune in next week for  my next five answers and tell me yours in the comments below.

Random Questions Tag - Part Two

Hi Guys,

I did the first eight questions to his tag so it may be worth you reading that first, then coming back here to see the last seven. I know you guys love these tags so if you know of any you would like me to do comment below and let me know. Well let's get into it.

What would you order from Starbucks?



I am not much of a coffee lover - but I absolutely adore the smell of it. My order is normally a skinny mocha with just half a shot of coffee and a caramel shot. Needless to say I do not go there too often it is far too complicated.

Beauty rule do you preach not practice?

In all honesty none. Beauty routine is very personal and it is so different for each person.

Which way do you face in the shower?

I start off by facing it then turn around the rinse my hair, so both really.



Any weird body skills?

You may need to ask my boyfriend that one ;) haha no seriously nothing except for rolling my tongue, if that counts?

Favourite 'naughty' comfort food?

I adore Italian food so anything with lots of pasta, lots of garlic and even more cheese.

Phrase you always say?

I don't really have one. I work in complaints in my day job so probably I apologise haha

Time to Sleep what are you wearing?

If my boyfriend is with me: nothing. When he goes away on his business trips though I wear full pyjamas.

I tag you to complete this and leave me any links the comments below.

Favourite Beauty Blogger Part Two

Hi Guys,

Almost two weeks ago now I wrote about my favourite established Beauty Bloggers. When I say established I mean blogs that have been around for years and have built a following of thousands. This time I will be talking about newer beauty blogs that are still building their empires. Most of these I have only discovered recently and if you are looking for additional reading you can find my full list of Blogs I Love here.

So let's get into it.

Lola and Behold

This is a blog that I was introduced to via Google Plus and I have not left it alone since. This site has been running since 2012 and has one of the largest selection of makeup reviews I have ever seen. Laura has quite an emphasis on drugstore, which I really like. A lot of makeup blogs tend to focus solely (or mostly) on high end and as I can't afford an awful lot of those products it puts me off. She also had a day job as a nurse and I love the honest feel of her reviews.

This picture was taken from The Lola and Behold blog - I do not own it.

Raspberry Kiss
This is another fantastic blog that I discovered when exploring Google Plus and I adore it. Shannon is from North England and works in Digital Marketing. I would say my favourite part of this blog is the HUGE product directory you find pretty much every brand in on that page and as she is a qualified beauty therapist you know you can trust her advice. This blog is a great one for dupes and if you are looking to save money this is the place to be.

This picture was taken from the Raspberry Kiss Blog I do not own it.


Beauty Angel

This is written by Elizabeth from Sao Paulo and I have never seen such beautiful eye makeup. There are regular tutorials, reviews and hauls on the website and to think it is less than a year old. This is definitely worth following so you are made aware of any new posts too. One of my favourite pieces is where she shows us how to do makeup and glasses tastefully. I can see the blog becoming more and more popular as time goes on.

This image was taken from The Beauty Angel Blog. I do not own it.

The Lipsticks I Just Pulled Out of My Handbag!



Hi Guys,

I think all of us ladies are properly guilty of letting lipsticks gather up in the bottom of their bags and this is definitely a terrible habit of mine. I am forever looking for one in there, then come out with another and another. So when I looked in there today, what did I find?

  • Rimmel Apocalips in Celestial - this is that lovely lip lacquer (top marks for alliteration) in a gorgeous light pink shade. I love that these dry to a slight stain, so there is always one floating around. 
  • Maybelline 24 Hour Bold Matte in Glamour Pink - I never see anything about these in blogs so as I love them so much I may be reviewing my collection soon. This dries to a fantastic matte finish and as they can be quite drying this comes with a balm on the other side. This doesn't last 24 hours but it does a good eight. 
  • Loreal Caresse Gloss Stain in Milady - I have heard this product is a dupe for the YSL Glossy Stains and I think they are great. I bought this when I was away at a friend's wedding and I had forgot to take any lip products. This stains my lips all day and the colour is beautiful. 
  • Bourjois Shine Edition Lip Stick Number 22 - I wish these lip products had names and nit just numbers! This is a great lip product and it features in my 30 Days 30 Lips Posts which you can find here. This is just a great shiny lipstick that I keep in my bag so I can top it up whenever I want. 
  • Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Exxxagerate - I love this purple! I leave this in my bag as it switches my look from day tonight instantly. I wanted this lipstick for such a long time before I finally got it and I certainly do not regret the purchase. 
  •  Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Velvet - This product is so worth the hype. I got it for free when I 'spend so much' on Maybelline one time and I am constantly going between this and my Carmex. I am nearly half way through this!
