Favourite purchase of the week!

This never happens! I actually have some free time on my hands, a laptop and some peace. Woohoo! 
Although I have been trying to post as often as possible, I have had quite a lot of stuff on recently and haven't done as much as I'd like to. To start with, I'm applying for Uni this year and my application form is due in about 2 weeks. AAAH! This is taking up a lot of my time - drafting and re-drafting personal statements, researching courses, making decisions etc. It's so hard not to be lazy about it - this rainy weather is just making me want to cuddle up inside and forget about work! But of course I must be motivated, otherwise I will never achieve any dreams.
I've also been busy just spending time with the people I love! I think it's really important to spend time with family, friends and loved ones... and I've been doing a lot of it lately. There's nothing better than family time!
Finally, I've been busy with college work in general. I had a few harsh deadlines this week and had to work hard to meet them. But, I did it! And now I have a week off college to celebrate Halloween and spend even more time with loved ones. This hopefully means more blogging! Yay. 


So, anyway, I have some exciting news! As some of you may know, I have been after the 'perfect berry lipstick' for quite some time now... and I have finally purchased one! 
Although previously I blogged that my perfect autumn/winter lipstick would be the Rimmel Sugar Plum Lasting Finish, I changed my mind once I actually saw it in real life. It was a lovely lipstick, however it just looked too light and pinky, and not very berry-ish. I wanted more darker tones. So I decided to settle with Rimmel's 'Amethyst Shimmer' lipstick which is absolutely deeeelicious! It's darker than the 'Sugar Plum' which is exactly what I wanted, and it also does have a subtle shimmer to it too which is lovely. It only cost me £5.00 at the supermarket Tesco which I was pretty impressed with!




As far as lipsticks go I would say this one is really good. You can dab it on and rub it in for a more subtle look, or just apply it straight to lips for more of a block colour. I have been wearing it both ways and love it! I wore it to work last night and it stayed on really well; there were no smudges and it hadn't faded after a whole shift. 

I'm so glad I've found my autumn/winter lipstick! However, I think I am willing to go a little darker and more of a berry shade - I would like a lipstick maybe with a little less shimmer and a little more darkness. That's not to say that I don't absolutely adore this lipstick, though! It's lovely.

Have you guys tried any Rimmel lipsticks?
I'd love to hear your own autumn/winter lipstick collections. This is just the beginning of mine!




Happy Saturday!
