   So, it's been a while since I've done a beauty post. It seems the ideal time to be writing one now as I'm procrastinating - revision is mind numbing but, of course, unfortunately inevitable (at some point...) if I want to pass this year!

  I took a few photos after filming the intro for my recent vlog vlog as wore my NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Tokyo in the video. Yes, I have already posted a proper review here... but I didn't post photos of me wearing the product, which is personally something that I like to see in reviews!

   A quick update on the review - exfoliation seems key with this product! Unfortunately any dry bits of skin, or unevenness will stick out like a sore... bit of skin?!  I love the look of matte lips, but this probably isn't the best formula if your lips have a tendency to be cracked / dry /flaky. I only use the lip cream when I can be bothered to exfoliate (ie. not often). I think Tokyo is a lovely colour though, I think it suits my pale skin pretty well!

  I find that the formula wears off pretty quickly especially for a matte product - bit of a shame, but it's fine as long as you're not fussed about having to reapply or check up on your lipstick every hour or so. Personally I don't find it an issue, as long as it's a day where I have time to do it!

   Off I go to continue the dreaded revision.... 

ps. This is my 50th blog post, wooo!
