Topshop ombré lips

After I finished my second year of uni I thought I would treat myself to a new lipstick. I don't tend to spend much on make up but I visited Topshop and fell in love with the colours they had. I'm a sucker for dark purple colours and originally I picked up one lipstick. Then I found the ombré selection and they were only £1 more and with student discount as well I had a cheeky 10% knocked off. I watched the Topshop video on YouTube to see how to apply the lipstick effectively and I quite like it so far, the colours match nicely and I feel I would buy the other combinations that they have to offer too. The product is quite long lasting but i feel my lips are dry after use, any recommendations?
If you do buy one of these do check out the video, it shows you some nice smokey eye looks that would go nicely with the lip effect, if only I was a make-up guru *sigh*

As I'm a newbie this is my first award I have been nominated for, so here it goes! 
Big thank-you to for nominating me. I don't think I've done it perfectly, but it's the participation that counts :)

The Questions 
 Where is your ideal vacation spot?
My ideal vacation spot would be somewhere in the sun and a location that has amazing views. I would consider some places in the UK to be good enough for me so somewhere like Scotland or Wales would be nice :)

 What is your favorite piece of clothing in your closet?
As 80% of my time is spent in bed on my laptop and watch Netflix it would definitely have to be something that screams comfort to me. Of course, I have my favourite clothing for going out etc but comfort is key when you spend the majority of your time indoors!

3. What is your favorite thing to do when you have free time?

Reading other peoples blogs is a great hobby of mine and I like DIY blogs in particular they also drive me to be creative and inspire to do things i probably wouldn't have thought about before, so yeah blogging.
