Laura Mercier's luscious lip silk

I bought this little tube in Sephora while in New York. I think it was $20 but I have seen it in Space NK for £16 (about £4 more, so yet again we are ripped off). Either way this is pricey for a tiny tube of lip balm however I so hate having dry, sore lips that I dont mind splashing out on an expensive product to save and use at bed time. This nice thick balm does the job even when used sparingly. It seemed to prevent a healing cold sore getting to the painful, bleeding stage which is a minor miracle. It doesnt have much scent or taste which personally I prefer. I thinks its comparable to my much beloved Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour lip treatment although that is possbly more hygienic and convenient as its a stick. I wonder what heights my expensive lip treatment habit will reach? Would I spend £32 on the By Terry Baume de Rose?

Sunshine and Rain

Despite the gorgeous sunny weather we have had this week, I have been obsessed by this Eyeko Rain polish. Its the first time I have bought anything from Eyeko and it was this that pulled me in. Its a beautiful blue, grey shade which is a little bit different but not too in your face for work. I have a hard time with blue and green polish but I like this with my pale skin tone. The consistency is really good. I did two coats out of habit but one thick one may have worked well. Staying power is average at about 3 days without chips or tip wear. Available from for £3.50 I have a feeling this will be a repurchase for me.
Happy Friday

PS Happy to report that my rash is now gone (cause still a mystery!) which means my lotion and potion love is back with a vengence.
