Moisturisation is not only needed for your body, but also for your lips to keep them soft supple and healthy. I for one have always used some kind of lipbalm or another. I have always chosen ingedients that I know are really nousrishing and moisturising. Occasionally, I have chosen lipbalms with colour too but I generally choose a lipbalm for its mosturising properties over colour or other factors. This is the exception to that rule. I chose this because of the packaging, which is really cute and colourful. Here’s a rundown on each, although they are basically the same texture: soft with good coverage when they first go on but within about ten minutes of wear, my lips felt as dry as if I hadn’t applied anything so the first thing I noticed was that they don’t moisturise well if your lips have a tendency to get really dry . I bought them because I have a real tendency to want to try out the latest makeup trends. They give a matte look to lips.

- Packaging with a pair of heels and a shopping bag graphic in orange on a bright blue background.
- Bought at my local chemist and cost €2.99
Keep Calm and Kiss:
- Pink colour looks hot pink in the tube, but looks much paler when on lips, disappointingly so

Personally, on this occasion, I felt that the packaging of these won me over more than the product quality and my points are based solely on thst fact. It might be different for you though. I think these are good for you if you like a product that looks fun and haven’t tried lipbalms before as the finish is subtle. Do be prepared to reapply it really frequently though. I found I was reapplying this a lot more than any other lipbalm product I have ever used. The packaging makes a statement though.
NaNoWriMo Day 2:
I made it to, and past 5K! much quicker than I thought. After two years of participating in this event, I really feel more focused on writing and less worried by wordcount. I’m enjoying myself a lot more because of this approach I decided to take during my first NaNo back in 2013 – do not focus on the word count tool- repeat: do NOT focus on the word count tool. Just write.
