Hey guys!

So I popped into Sainsburys the other day and I caught sight of InStyle magazine's free giveaway- a Body Shop lip/cheek stain. And it looked pretty good- Rachel Bilson convinced me. It was all her fault!

I have had my eye on the stain for a long time. I even went as far as going to the Body Shop and trying the tester. I was in a bit of a hurry so I slicked a layer on and I didn't notice much difference so with much disappointment I put it back on the shelf.

However, when in Sainsburys I decided to give it one more try. Heck- I was getting it for £3.60 (which was the price of the magazine) when it usually costs £9.50 so I chucked it into the basket and went to pay for it.

There were actually two different colours available- Rose pink (in the pict) and Bronze glimmer.
Now, being the greedy, beauty obsessed girl I am I did ponder briefly over whether I should get both- but then I realised that I would be buying two copies of the exact same magazine which was by no means cheap. Eventually I settled for Rose pink.

When I got home I ripped open the tube ready to smear it on my face, expecting huge disappointment and initially I was but then I decided to build up the colour. I guess I was expecting a really strong colour but it isn't a gloss or a blush- it's only a lip stain. It looks really red in the bottle but on the lips it actually comes out very pink.

I also thought that it was a bit drying so I coated my lips with Vaseline then dabbed the stain on top which was a bit of a challenge because the stain is watery. You know when you use Vaseline as a moisturiser and then if it hits water it slithers off??- Yeah, that's kinda what happened here. I should have known. But I somehow got it to work and I can honestly say it looks good on the lips on the cheeks it's a bit- blah?? I can't really see any change.

But, that's it.
Will you be getting Instyle??

Lots of Love,
