Next we have an NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm in Garnet Gala. I got this from Poundworld yesterday as I already own three of them and couldn't resist adding another one to my collection. As with all of them the colour is strong for a tinted balm and they have such a nice appley scent. This one is different from the others I've got as it contains golden red shimmer. It's not gritty though thankfully. I think this one will be great for Christmas time as it's so festive!
Lastly we have The Body Shop Colourglide lipstick in Pinkette. I bought this at the weekend on sale for £5 (though I'm sure it was meant to be £4). This is still quite pricey for me but I've never tried a Body Shop lipstick and was intrigued! The label on the bottom is more purple than what it actually is but it's still a really pretty dark pink colour. On my lips it looks quite natural so I think it'll be one I can just slap on without much thought. It should go with quite a lot of looks too. Not that I experiment much but still!
Onto glosses and here we have an NYC Liquid Lipshine in Wine n Dine and a Maybelline Color Sensational Cream Gloss in Stellar Berry. The former was from Poundworld and the latter from Xtras for £1.99 with a code. The NYC one is extremely pigmented and is almost like a liquid lipstick. The shade looks a bit dark in the tube but once on it's very wearable. It has a lovely texture and consistency but one thing I really don't like is the smell. It smells like those vanilla car air freshener trees. The scent does die down after a while but I really wish it was unscented! The Maybelline one also has a fruity-ish scent I don't like but it's less strong at least! This one is much more sheer and contains some fine shimmer. Great for a more subtle take on the trend! I also think this would be good layered over other plummy lipsticks- MAC Plumful for one!

I think I'm sorted for A/W lip shades for now!
