Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick 815 Sweet Pea Review - £7.99 Boots & Superdrug (Currently 2 for £10)
Revlon is my favourite brand for lip products and if you saw my collection, I'm sure you'd agree. When I saw they launched their Ultra HD Lipstick in the UK, I looked everywhere for them to swatch. The shade 815 Sweet Pea looked most appealing to me.

If you read my recent post where I went shopping in Superdrug whilst they had a 3 for 2 offer, you may have read that I purchased yet more lip items that I don't need. My favourite Revlon lip products are the lip butters. I've got more than I care to admit and it's an easy formula to swipe and go. I would say the Ultra HD lipsticks are based on the lip butters but with slightly more pay off.

The packaging is the main negative point of the Ultra HD lipstick unfortunately. As others have mentioned, like all other lip products, you are able to wind down the product to the bottom so that you don't catch it on the lid. In this case, you have to be very careful so not to take a chunk of product off when you return the lid back on. Rather annoying. The rest of the design is nothing too exciting and actually I do prefer the lip butter packaging personally.

The product itself is just ok. I love the smell which is really sweet and reminds me of vanilla cupcakes! It is fairly pigmented and shade 815 Sweet Pea is a cool-toned, blue-based pink which is something I'd wear in the daytime as it's quite subtle on the lips. There is no drag when it's being applied but the finish is just average. The Ultra HD part? I'm not so sure where this comes into place, but it's an average product overall.

If you're a fan of the original Revlon Lip Butters then try this out, but for an amped up version of a lip balm, maybe this one isn't for you.

Have you tried the Revlon Ultra HD Lipsticks? What were your thoughts?

It's already been 2 weeks since my last update, time really is flying and I'm getting bigger and bigger. Things are really getting pretty real now, I've had confirmation of a breastfeeding course I'm booked into at the hospital. It's now less than 2 weeks until we move house (I've managed to pack one box so far, oops). 

25 & 26 Weeks Pregnancy Update

I've been really tired lately, even when I'm literally doing nothing around the house so naps are greatly appreciated when I can manage to doze off.

How far along? 27 weeks & 2 days.
Total weight gain: 9lbs.
Maternity clothes? No new ones.
Stretch marks? I'm really sad, they've now creeped onto my belly but there's ever-growing ones all over my legs too unfortunately. :(
Sleep: Getting pretty disturbed now. Baby has decided she much prefers night-time to start waking me up, this combined with generally feeling like a whale isn't ideal for a good nights sleep.
Best moment this week: Feeling her move so much and so strongly now.
Miss anything? Nothing really.
Food cravings: I've finally realised I've had a huge craving this entire pregnancy and didn't pick it up; cereal! I can't go a day without having it but never picked it up as a craving but I didn't used to have it so much. Also, a strawberry & lychee drink from Aldi that I've been loving. Yum.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nope.
Gender: Girl!
Labour signs: Not yet.
Symptoms: Constant tiredness, wanting to eat the house contents, pelvic pain and general aches and backpain. 
Belly button in or out? Still in and flat, keeps going half out then back in.
Happy or moody most of the time: I've been pretty emotional and felt quite low mainly. No real reason, just hormonal I guess crying for no reason.
Looking forward to: Once I've got my whooping cough injection and blood tests out the way next week, I've got a pretty exciting fortnight following!

I'm not sure if we'll have internet right away as they've never installed on time, so my next update may be late! I hope you're all well and looking forward to the Bank Holiday if you're in the UK!

Kiko Quick Dry 803 Rose Coral Review
Kiko Quick Dry 803 Rose Coral | Currently £2.90 here.
When I last visited my friend Sara whilst she was still living in Madrid, she kindly gave me some gifts from Kiko, which isn't quite easily accessible in the UK, but mega cheap in Spain. I haven't tried a lot of Kiko products but the ones I have tried, I have loved.

The colours she chose couldn't have been more perfect, she knows me well clearly! One of the products was the Quick Dry formula in shade 803 Rose Coral. It has the best nail polish brush I've tried, a wide, thick brush which covers most of my nail with one sweep.

The formula is perfect and although I'm not the best at applying nail polish, it's one of those "quick I've not painted my nails" 5 minutes before leaving the house type products, that you just grab and go. I'm hooked on this range and want to try more products. Sadly their UK site has a minimum order value of £25 which is pretty high, but I know that they've just opened a store in Oxford. I'm moving back towards there very soon so will be able to pick up some more shades then!

Have you tried any of Kiko's products? Which do you recommend to try?
