Kiehl's lip balm

While I was in America last summer I decided to finally visit Saks 5th avenue and I naturally went to the beauty counter and bought this lip balm in hue no. 58B.  It is available at £12.50 but I’m sure I bought this for $9.50 but I can't remember anymore.

  It is more or less coloured petrolatum based balm in a white tube and it is 15ml of product which is a fair amount.  It is scented and this may be a problem for some people but I personally like the scent - it is really really sweet smelling. 

This was great for the winter as it is SPF 15 and protected my lips but still gave them a rosy glow.

 It isn't as good of a lip balm as my trusty carmex but I’m willing to look beyond that and my next item on my wish list will be kiehls #1 lip balm.

Sleek contour kit

Like many others contouring is an essential part of my daily makeup routine as I have only some parts of my cheekbones showing.  this kit retails for £6.50 - which is really good deal as high end contour and highlighting products would cost at least double that and is available at most Superdrug stores.

I chose the medium version of this product. The contour powder is very creamy and so it is very easy to blend without it looking muddy and the highlight product is a little chalky but not enough to put me off using it and it is a very nice champagne colour which noticeable shimmer but doesn't leave you looking like a disco ball.
I would recommend this product to all girls who have medium skin and I have also heard good things about the light version as well, unfortunately I can’t speak for the dark version but I think that would be just as good as the others.
