I warn you, this is a very random post. The recent #bbloggers chat made me realise I have a weird
Miss Sporty Dr Balm - £1.99
First Impression - I was so shocked to see what I imagine are 'Baby Lips' dupes sat in Superdrug, having heard no hype or mention of it? I even tweeted a photo to see if anyone knew about them. They are very balmy feeling but extremely sheer so it would take a lot of building up for them to show up on my lips. At a push, the red shade could possibly be an everyday, very natural red lip (but what's the point in that?) and the others just wouldn't show up.

Rimmel Apocalips - £5.99
First impression - Incredibly pigmented and glossy. Has a creamier texture than the YSL glossy stain at first glance. Surprisingly the swatches wiped right off my hand without any stain so it seems like it would transfer.
|Big Bang, Celestial, Galaxy, Nude Eclipse (hopefully).|
Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick - £7.99 (currently £2 off)
First Impressions - This is another product I haven't heard much about but the stand looked interesting so I gave it a swatch. They felt nice and creamy.
Revlon Lip Butters - £7.99
I thought I'd include my own collection of lip butters in this post as I won't be reviewing them separately (it would be the 2973297324th post). I personally didn't get the hype around these lip butters. They are creamy and some are pigmented but so are lots of other lipsticks. Either way, I have a collection and there are some pretty colours. I love my recent addition - red velvet.

Clinique chubby stick shadow tint for eyes - £16
(Ignore that this can't be found in Superdrug and therefore contrary to the title)
First Impression - very creamy and pigmented. Not sure about the staying power as I may not have given it enough time to set but when I rubbed the swatches a lot of the pigmentation disappeared. I have issues with creasing so sadly this isn't something I would purchase anyway although I am still looking into the chubby sticks for lips.
