Les Misérables

Yesterday I went to see Les Misérables at the cinema and I can honestly say it's the best movie I've seen in a long, long time. It was such a beautiful film. As soon as I returned home I instantly bought the soundtrack and have had it on repeat constantly since. My favourite songs are probably 'empty chairs at empty tables', 'master of the house' and 'on my own'. The vocals were amazing and as Samantha Barks if from the Isle of Man, like myself, I felt so proud of her achievements. Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen were the perfect combination and added an amazing sense of light heartedness to the film without going too over the top.
I would recommend this film to everyone and definitely class it as a 'must see' movie. Even if you think it's not your sort of thing I'm pretty sure you'll be surprised when you watch it. The story is amazing and the talent of the actors is impeccable. I'm already excited for the dvd to be released.
Have you been to see this film? If so what did you think?

Revlon Kissable Balm Stains

I know these little beauties have been around a while however I was a little skeptical about purchasing these when they first arrived in the UK. I've always been a huge fan of revlon products and that love grew after trying out these lip products. I currently own three shades 001 Honey, 005 Crush and 045 Romantic.

Left to Right: Honey, Crush, Romantic



These balms can be used to provide a sheer wash of colour or build up with layers to provide a bold and much more noticeable colour. The lasting power is great and do no leave your lips feeling dry like most stains.  The product glides on and the crayon-like design allows application to be quick and easy. The stains have a minty smell which I personally find lovely as it is not overpowering. Retailing for £7.99 I would definitely recommend these to anyone who loves to wear bright lip colours but does not like to reapply constantly throughout the day. I will definitely be purchasing more of these in the near future.
Have you tried these? If so what did you think about them?
