'Smile Like You Mean It'

These are a few beauty related items I picked up recently. I had heard so much about the Collection Extreme Felt Tip Liner so for £2.99 I thought I would give it a whirl. It's fair to say I really love it. I always make sure I'm careful when it comes to eyeliners (especially cheaper ones) as I have a tendency to get sore eyes if they are hard to remove or not a good formula, but this comes off very easily with a make-up remover which is perfect for me.

I've never really been in to 'pen' eyeliners but this one is so easy to use; I'm not sure how long it will last but for £2.99 it is worth it to replace them - it might last a good few months anyway!
As usual, I can't trust a '24 hour' formula, seeing as I never wear it for this long, but it did not smudge or budge all day - and with the ridiculous windy cold days we are having in the UK it even survived my eyes watering - the sign of a good eyeliner in my opinion! It even comes in 3 other colours; Purple, Blue and Teal - I can't say personally I will be purchasing one of those colours, but for me the black will suffice :) I cannot sing the praises of this felt tip liner more - if you've tried it let me know in the comments how you've been getting on with it :)

Of course, a TIBS beauty post would not be complete without a lipstick or 2 would it! I of course had to pick up two Lip Butters because Boots are offering them 2 for £10 - sadly this excited me a bit too much!

This is a new shade I picked up called Sorbet, and it is a lovely, quite natural darkish pink colour. I saw this just before Christmas but couldn't face spending £7.99 at the time, but once I could get it on offer it was my first choice. As I always say about the Lip Butters, they are my favourite lip product of all time - a big statement; but for me they last a long time, the colours are beautiful, they are moisturising and they can even stay put after eating and drinking - oh and they last for a long time.

This is my favourite colour that I have ever puchased from the line so I had to re-purchase it. It is the most beautiful, and not too 'in your face', pinky shade and is really lovely if you stick to just reds and natural colours for lipsticks - it really is lovely.

I hope you enjoyed this quick post, this is just a mid-week one before I show you the stuff I picked up in the Topshop sale.
