Again I have to apologise as it is the end of March and here I am writing about a Christmas gift set. I'm quite far behind on posts, as you can probably tell, which is why in the build up to exams I am limiting myself to one post a week (maybe two if I'm on top of everything!)

I love the normal kind of pick 'n' mix, I fill my bag with all the goodies I can, I also do the same with FeelUnique's version. Instead of sweets they offer beauty samples for £3.95 a month which isn't half bad really. I subscribed a few months back first and then somehow forgot about the service, but here I am back with five goodies to show you from some pretty good brands!

A purple lipstick Beth!? Have you gone mad? That's a little out of your comfort zone don't you think? Honestly, yes it is out of my comfort zone, but I actually really love the colour.
Just after Christmas, MAC had their clear out of festive products and I made a sneaky order because a MAC lipstick for £11 is not to be sniffed at. First off I have to mention the gorgeous packaging; the matte purple of the bullet and pink of the cap go beautifully together and is some of the favourite packaging I have ever owned. The lipstick itself is quite similar to the matte purple packaging. On me it's a medium purple with a slight berry hue, it's a satin finish which is very comfortable to wear. It doesn't go on patchy, nor does it cling to my many dry patches which is always a bonus in winter. I doubt I will get much use out of it in summer as it's not a very summery colour but come autumn this will be on my lips all the time! I won't let this get lost at the back of my draw as maybe there will be a few more chances to wear it before spring is in full swing.
Would you have taken a Leap of Delight and bought this lipstick or do you prefer more neutral tones? I'm on the fence, I'm quite liking stepping out of my comfort zone, but maybe I won't bring out the bright orange summer lipsticks just yet!
