  • Nikki at CocoBella is holding a great giveaway on her blog so please click and have a look. The polish in the giveaway looks amazing!
  • I'm such a rubbish blogger that I have been meaning to post about this for a while. Du Wop recently released a Twilight version of their Lip Venom.

The link to their site is here and the blurb:

Be transformed. Let the alchemy transcend.

Twilight Venom is not your typical DuWop venom. Instead of a gloss, Twilight Venom is a shimmering crimson lip stain suspended in a venom-laced liquid lip conditioner with a super potent bite (watch out!), and contains argan, avocado, olive oils and vitamin E.

This product should be shaken before use to represent the blending of the human and vampire worlds and applied repeatedly until lips are plumped, revitalized and the desired intensity of color has been reached.

As soon as I saw it I wanted it but wasn't sure if it was available in the UK. The lovely Neisha offered to send me one and it arrived a few weeks ago but I have forgotten to blog about it. The card I received from Neisha was so cute:

I am so happy and thrilled that someone was kind enough to send me this. I haven't had chance to use it yet - truth be told I am scared!! I hear that Lip Venom is a VERY tingly feeling on the lips when you apply it. I opened it the other day and as I closed it I got some of the residue on my fingers - hardly any - so I just rubbed it on my lips and damn, it stung like a bitch!!! Neisha I have not sent anything in return yet but I get paid on Friday and I will be sending you a little something by way of thanks.

  • I also will be buying some little gifts when I get paid - I will hold a giveaway at 200 followers so I will be sorting out my gifts and what I want to give away shortly. I am thinking of a Sleek palette for definite so what I may do re this is wait until the winner is announced and then I can get the one they want, I see no point in just buying a random one. Or I might buy two and then let winner pick and give the second to the runner up - I don't know yet!
  • I am thinking of beginning to do You Tube videos, would any of you watch if I did?


  1. Do it Carla - I want to see you on you tube :) Did you see the post on british beauty blogger about the twilight cosmetics - how fab is that blusher :) You are soooo lucky not using concealer I can;t live without the stuff lol

  2. Don't laugh but I've just been kinda rehearsing what Id say lol...gonna do it tomorrow night I think :)

    No I didn't but I did see something on Neishas about it, I was going to repost it, like little sets to do with the characters?? I want I want!!!


  3. Do ittttttttttttttt! :) I will watch for definite. xxx

  4. I got that Lip Venom for free when I saw the New Moon cast at the Twilight movie viewing after Comic Con San Diego. Whew!

    a)I didn't know you were supposed to shake it! That helps!
    b)It only stings for a minute. :-)
    c)Maybe when I shake it, the color will go on evenly, because the last time I used it it only stained part of my lips.

    Thanks for the tip!!

  5. You must make a vlog! You must!

  6. I have tried this stuff before and it makes my lips sting!! Good luck with it ;)

    That lip venom has such a neat bottle, but the way it works frightens me! Hope it works, though :)
