2true Colour Drench Lipsticks Review

I'm sitting here at the laptop on a pretty dreary Essex day so I thought it would be a great time to inject a bit of colour into the blog and review the 2 True Colour Drench Lipsticks I recently received to review. When the package arrived I was quite surprised to find all 6 lipstick shades, I was expecting only one so I was a lucky reviewer.

The six shades (6--11 for 2true fans) were grouped in 2's, so there were 2 brown tones, 2 pink, and 2 red. Labelled as colour drench they promise rich colour, and are enriched with vitamin E to protect the lips. The outer casing is a stylish silver and looks a lot more classy than other lower budget lipstick brands, a bit smaller than some other cases as well so ideal for taking out for touch-ups.




I think 2True have got it right with their colour choices here, and I was initially impressed with the range of colours, offering bright, rich, and subtle in one range is good going. I was a bit wary of the darker/brighter shades though as normally I avoid bright pink and red thinking they are too loud and would just look silly with my skin tone and outfit choices. But I have gamely done a swatch on my hand, and tried all the shades and pleasantly surprised with some of the results.

These are £1.99 lipsticks though and don't glide on as effortlessly as some higher priced sticks or glosses, and there is a slight synthetic smell at first but that soon fades, and I didn't even notice it when I'd applied any of the lipsticks. The colours do last longer than expected, but at the same time will need touching up more often than some brands.



The biggest surprise was the darker and brighter shades, as I normally avoid pink and red thinking I look a bit silly, but I'd feel comfortable wearing all these colours. I'd have to play around with the bright/dark ones to achieve a tone I was happy with (blotting and reapplying), but they are more subtle shades than I was expecting and have won me over a bit on that count.

All in all I think I am still more of a lip gloss fan than lipstick, but I will have fun wearing these 2True items to brighten up the autumn/winter, and would consider buying one or 2 of in the future.



Apologies for the no make-up selfie, just wanted to show you one of the lipsticks against a natural palette so to speak!

You'll find 2True lipsticks in Superdrug stores across the country and online.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Cake Of The Week - Weetabix Loaf Cake (Guest Post)

  Have you had your Weetabix?!   As promised in last week's post, I bring you a healthy cake ( well as healthy as cake can be!) that is full of fibre, uses no fat, contains one of your five a day, and is as cheap as chips to make. Has my fab marketing pitch sold it to you yet? The quirk to this recipe? The main ingredient is that old breakfast favourite, Weetabix! I can almost see a few noses wrinkle up but please don't let this put you off. This is a lovely moist, fruity bake with a slightly chewy outer that sits perfectly with a teatime cuppa, and is great for lunch boxes as it travels really well.   I would definitely recommend giving this bake a whirl to share with your nearest and dearest. Don't spill the beans about the main ingredient and see if anyone can guess!   For this week's bake you will need the following equipment:  a 2lb loaf tin, baking paper, a mixing bowl,  a wooden spoon and a teaspoon.   Ingredients: 3 Weetabix biscuits ( own

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car
