    The Red Lipstick Edit

      (Some of the products in this post were gifted) Lately, my favourite makeup product to wear is red lipstick, it’s kinda like the little black dress of makeup in the sense that it never goes out of style however it’s not always so easy to pull off.  I use to find wearing red lipsticks so difficult, I felt like a bit of a fraud almost like a child playing dress up. More often than not I would wipe the bright colour off my lips and choose something a little bit safer but over the last few months I’ve really embraced the classic lip and I am now really appreciating…

    More Chocolate Goodness from Too Faced

    Welcome back to PennyxxLane today we are talking about the dreamiest palette of the year (so far… it’s only March so brands have plenty time to create a competitor).

    Pump N Volume Mascara | Dior

    I’m back today to talk about the Pump and Volume mascara from Dior (£25.50), I have to say I am big fan of high end mascaras, I find the quality is much better and the Pump N Volume mascara is exciting! It has a rubber tube that coats the brush in enough product to cover your lashes with just one squeeze, perhaps illiminating any waste. I find the brush is coated in lots and lots of the mascara. Often there is excess product, but my pet peeve is a mascara that is very dry so I appreciate the amount of product that you get and the consistency of it. My…
