Sleek Lip VIP Lipsticks Review and Swatches

Sleek are a beauty brand I have been a huge fan of for a while - their eye-shadow palettes are amazing quality for such a reasonable price. Something I was excited to try were their newly launched Lip VIP Lipsticks.
The collection includes six shades which are inspired by the luxuries of being a VIP - check out the very aptly chosen names.

Private Booth - a creamy nude
Flaunt It - a daring, bold orange
Backstage - a warm pink
Night Spot - a classic red
Reserved - a light, girly pink
Guest List - a wearable coral for every day wear

The lipsticks are extremely creamy, pigmented and moisturising. The colour lasts on the lips for around 5 hours without the need to reapply. I love the bold colours and feel the quality of the lipsticks is brilliant considering they cost less than £6 each. I couldn't recommend them more.
The Sleek Lip VIP Lipsticks are available from Boots, Superdrug and online at, costing £5.49 each.

Lush Candy Mountain Bubble Bar

I am in the process of reviewing a lot of my Christmas Lush purchases on my blog; although I do feel awful for reviewing them when they are not currently available to buy, but I thought it would be good to document what I thought of them and to hear your thoughts.
One of the bubble bars I bought was the Candy Mountain bubble bar; I had never tried this before but heard good things about it. The scent is very light and is described as sweet, but I couldn't really smell the scent at all. In all honesty I was quite disappointed with this bubble bar. To me, it didn't really smell of anything. It did lather up some bubbles, but I was expecting it to be much more than it was. Once added to your bath, your bath water turns to a pink colour, and it creates a few bubbles. My skin did feel soft after I used this in the bath, which is probably the only pro I had from this product. I probably wouldn't buy this again if they bring it back next Christmas as I wasn't bowled over, which is a-shame as I know a lot of people love this bubble bar.

Have you tried this bubble bar?
