I recently decided that my lipstick collection was in dyer need of new additions, so I took to the high street in search of some reasonably priced drugstore lipsticks. Whilst shopping I took interest in some of the shades that Maybelline had to offer, and as Boots had a 2 for 3 deal on the brand I made good use of it and bought three of Maybelline's Colour Sensational lipsticks.


With my unique hair colour and complexion combination not many lip shades suit me, and I usually find myself sticking to plum shades. And this is definitely represented in these purchases. Nonetheless, I'm happy that there is still some significant variety between the three colours. The shades that I purchased are: 975 Divine Wine Matte, 886 Berry Bossy Bold, 365 Plum Passion.

Consistency-wise Divine Wine is so far my favourite, as I really enjoy matte products. And it so far has proved to have great staying power. Colour-wise Plum Passion is the most vibrant colour, which is fun for me to experiment with. But all in all I'm very pleased with each lipstick, especially at the low price.

Over Christmas, whilst I was staying with my mum in London, we went for a walk in Highgate Woods. The weather was as perfect as a winter day can be; frost on the ground but also warm sunlight bathing the park, making the atmosphere more than pleasant.


Highgate Woods has wild woodland on the outskirts but also a large open green space in the middle. So it's perfect for both walks as well as just lazing around, there's also enough space for sports. There's also a cafe within the woods that has both inside and outside seating, which I've visited previously. 


It's also great for Pokémon. Highgate Woods has really, really good Pokémon. The park has some great touches, for example craved trees and carvings of wooden animals, which double as unique Pokéstops.
