NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan.

As I’ve said many times, pink may be one of my absolute favourite colours and has been for many years, but it’s definitely not one of my go to shades of lipstick to wear. However, this post could shock you all, as I think I may have discovered the perfect pink that I actually… love to wear! Shocking, I know.

A few of you may be thinking, “I’m sure she’s wrote about quite a few pink shades of lipstick” and I’ll agree, to an extent. Although the shades I’ve wrote about have been mostly mauve shades, which although has a pink tint, is overall a different colour. However, this lipstick is definitely the colour in question and one I happen to adore and this post shall tell you why.

I’ve previously tried NYX’S Matte Lip Cream in the shade, “Ibizia” and wrote about this wonderful lipstick and brand in this post published last year. Therefore, when I happened to be browsing through their lipsticks a few weeks ago, (I was of course testing many shades on my hand, so much so that I practically created a rainbow) I came acrossMilan“. I’m surprised I actually picked it up as for the hundredth time, we all know that pink isn’t my must wear shade, although I do like a variety so, for whatever reason I swiped the lipstick on my hand. After trying out what seemed like hundreds of lipsticks on my hand, I was continuously drawn back to Milan and thankfully, I ended up buying it.

At just £5.50, the Soft Matte Lip Cream’s are a pretty great price, although if I could change one thing I do wish the product was a slightly bigger size. However, overall it is definitely worth the money. There are so many different shades in this collection and I especially love how each lipstick is named after a City! Pretty cool huh? The lip wand is also perfect and this is actually the only lipstick I will apply without using my must have lip brush! I think the reason is because not too much product comes out onto the wand therefore making it a lot easier to use in creating the perfect pout.

The soft matte cream formula is slightly different to a liquid lipstick, it dries very quickly but as described, it applies as a cream formula – not liquid. A positive to this is it’s definitely less messy if you happen to sometimes make a bit of a mess like myself. I would say that a applying a few coats of this product is a good idea as it’s not as long lasting as some others. However, for the price it is amazing quality and pretty pigmented.

I absolutely love the smell of the NYX Lip Cream, it’s not too strong and is a beautiful vanilla like scent. Plus, once fully applied it doesn’t even really feel like you have any product on your lips, which is a super bonus as we all know how uncomfortable sticky, flaky lipsticks can be. The packaging is pretty similar but very pretty and as someone who is a huge fan of the added details, I really appreciate the NYX Logo with the little heart. I also think it’s a wonderful idea how each product is the colour of the shade you purchase.

Therefore, as you can tell – this is without doubt my favourite pink lipstick I own, I think it’s due to the unique cool tone shade that NYX have created. I can’t think of another one like it and it’s definitely not easy coming up with variations when there are so many amazing colours out there. It’s not a baby pink or hot pink, it’s truly unique!

Have you got any NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams and if so, which is your favourite?

MAC So Good For You Nutcracker Sweet Lipstick.

As soon as I saw the Christmas Collection MAC were releasing  entitled Nutcracker Sweet, I knew that I simply had to have one of the lipsticks. Ironically enough my mum loved one of the shades and bought Saucy Little Darling, (I will review this one at some point also) so ultimately, I ended up with two out of the five! Sadly, that lipstick and the other three shades are now no longer available on MAC’s website – however, my favourite out of the five and the one I’m reviewing – So Good For You, is still available! What’s even better is it’s also reduced to just £11.50 compared to the usual £17.50, which is a couple of pounds higher because of it being a limited edition.

So Good For You is described as an, “intense cool red” with a matte finish. The term cool red simply means that the shade is a blue tone which is usually suited to paler skin tones compared to a orange shade which often compliments warmer tones. If you’ve been reading my blog posts for a while then you’ll definitely know how much I love red lipsticks and this one definitely passes the test! It’s so vibrant and bold with an almost cherry red pinkish undertone, simply timeless! I must add, the colour on the website looks significantly different to the actual shade as you will see by my photos and their website picture. It looks so warm, almost an orange neon red online and it most definitely is not that shade.

The packaging is ever so beautiful and of course I will be keeping the box as well – I can’t throw away something that pretty! The pink, purple and gold shades are eye catching, vibrant and compliment each other perfectly. As I’ve said before, this collection is definitely my favourite that MAC have released so far and I honestly don’t know how they can improve on their designing, but I’m sure I’ll eat my words when the next one comes out!


As with all MAC products I have tried, the lipstick is a quality formula and lasts all day, only wearing slightly on the edges of my lips from eating – so I can’t really complain! Also, the matte finish is so creamy and doesn’t dry or feel unpleasant to wear, it stays looking presentable and in place. Even now, as I’m writing this twelve hours later you can still make out the overall shade left on my lips – that’s pretty good going if you ask me!

If you’re a red lipstick lover like myself then I would definitely hurry over to MAC and pick up So Good For You before it’s no longer available! I’m even tempted to buy another one as I hate to think about it running out and no longer having one in my makeup collection. The great thing about the Nutcracker Sweet products is that the shades are simply timeless and can be worn all year around, they’re not just specifically wearable for the Holiday Season!

Bésame Cosmetics Classic Colour Lipstick in Red Hot Red.

As soon as I discovered Bésame Cosmetics, I realized my dream Brand had been created and if you’re a vintage lover like myself – then I’m sure you’ll feel the same too. Bésame’s products are all inspired from actual vintage makeup which existed in the 1920s up to the 1960s and the packaging is also replicated to perfection. The historical research and dedication that has been used in creating all of the products is  absolutely astounding and from lipstick to face powder they are each a work of art. Not only that, the brand is also cruelty free, which is just wonderful.

Therefore, when I discovered that Bésame was now being stocked on the UK website, cultbeauty, I knew that I had to add this amazing brand to my ever growing makeup collection. When I was looking through their lipsticks, I noticed each shade was named after a year, inspired by the shades released around that time, something so unique and such a wonderful idea. I was instantly drawn to, “1959 Red Hot Red” a lipstick which just so happened to be inspired by my absolute favourite – Marilyn!


This shade is described online as a, “bold, brazen warm red” and I would definitely agree with that statement. However, looking through the inspiration for this shade – photos of Marilyn in Some Like It Hot (1959) – I noticed that she continued to wear her cold blue tone reds which complimented her fair skin. Although, on some pictures the shade did look slightly warmer and as the film is in black and white, I’m only basing my opinion colour photos.


Ultimately, I’m very happy to have this shade in my collection as it is the only Marilyn, “inspired” lipstick so far, but I feel it doesn’t suit me as well as cooler toned reds. However, I still absolutely love the colour, you really can’t go wrong with a bold red. I think if I could choose another shade to buy it would definitely be, “1945 American Beauty” which is described as a, “cool berry red” although the shade looks slightly darker on the swatch photo. However, I’ve seen the lipstick on Pin Up Blogger Ashlyn Coco  and it looks so beautiful on her, so it most definitely has my approval and is on my to buy list!

As I previously mentioned, the packaging for each lipstick is simply beyond beautiful, it’s chic, timeless and effortlessly glamorous. Their products are without doubt some of the most aesthetically pleasing available and so unique and committed to continuing the vintage style. Furthermore, the lipsticks are even created like the classic products from the Golden Age of Hollywood and the tip is perfect for applying the perfect cupids bow shaped lip. Not only is the lipstick an absolute dream for your eyes, just as much precision and design has gone into the making of the box. It truly feels like I own an authentic vintage lipstick and for a retro girl at heart – it’s absolutely wonderful!

The matte finish is long lasting and very pigmented so not a lot of product is needed to created your perfect pout. However, what harm can an extra layer do, right? After all, you can never have enough lipstick! Also, as red was the most popular shade in the vintage era, the majority of the lipsticks in the collection are different shades of, you guessed it -red! As a modern day vintage lover, Bésame is definitely the brand for me! Not to worry though, there are a few pink, plum and darker shades available – but ultimately not a huge variety of colours, apart from red. Therefore, if you’re after wild stand out neon shades, then these probably aren’t the lipsticks for you.

At £18 each, these lipsticks are in the mid to high end brand range, so if you’re not as passionate about vintage and makeup like I am, then you can probably live without buying one as there are lots of amazing red lipsticks for much more affordable prices. However, if you’re after a quality, long lasting, incredibly aesthetically pleasing lipstick – then Bésame is a must add to the collection! I look forward to trying all of their other products at some point and I must say, it’s so refreshing how quite a few brands are being inspired by the vintage look! Soap and Glory, Benefit, The Balm – I could go on! It just goes to show how timeless and iconic Classic Hollywood is and if it’s not broke – don’t fix it.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks in Doll Parts and Masochist.

As someone who has been dreaming of owning a Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick for over the past year, I may have almost screamed with happiness when I found out that Jeffree Star Cosmetics were now being stocked online on UK website beautybay! I know you’re probably thinking, “Why don’t you just order from his website like everyone else?” and the answer is, I ordered from Kylie’s website a couple of times and the second time was charged with a customs fee – so I wasn’t risking that again!

I was fortunate enough to get two of the velour liquid lipsticks for Christmas that I asked for, (I hope you all had a lovely day by the way!) and they were, Doll Parts and Masochist. At £16 these products are in the mid to high makeup range, I was actually pleasantly surprised with the price – I thought they would be a lot more expensive! I always believe that quality is key with any makeup and if it’s going to last long and be a worthwhile product than I’m happy to pay that little extra.

Doll Parts is described on beautybay as a, “creamy hot pink” and I definitely agree with the creamy and pink part but hot? I’d say it’s a more mauve shade, which I’m very glad about as it’s different and not your everyday average pink! What I’m basically saying is I don’t think the description does it justice. However, the photo shows the shade exactly as it looks so that’s a good sign. I think this colour is great if you want to wear a, “girly” shade but not be too girly – if that makes sense? It’s perfect for the Autumn and Winter seasons as it definitely has a cold bold look and feel to it. It’s without doubt one of my favourites to wear and I’m so glad I chose this lipstick! Mauve shades are definitely becoming a new favourite of mine.

Masochist is the one I knew I wanted as soon as I saw it listed on Jeffree’s website months ago, it is described as a, “blue toned red” and once again I have to disagree with this – to an extent. Don’t get me wrong, the colour is absolutely stunning but it’s definitely not one hundred percent red. Blue toned? Yes. However, in the bottle, it looks like a bold vibrant fuchsia pink shade which on a positive, the website photo does do it justice. I always knew I wanted this colour anyway but, because of it’s description, I was also hoping to get it as an alternative for Redrum – also described as a blue toned red, which was not in stock. Ultimately, I absolutely adore this shade and I must say, when wearing it today it looked a lot more red than the first time I wore it but, I just thought it was important to mention that it definitely does have a slight hot pink undertone. This is most noticeable when comparing the red cherries on my dress with the lipstick. I do love the colour though – a unique shade of red to add to my collection!

Not only are the lipsticks incredibly long lasting and dry down from liquid to matte form in seconds, they are also vegan and cruelty free! Plus, the packaging is beyond aesthetically pleasing – it’s simply a girly girls dream and definitely the colour of Jeffree’s soul, you can tell he’s put his heart and soul into his Brand. I’m not going to lie, I’ve even kept the box packaging the products come in, they’re simply too pretty to throw away! The lipstick wand is also curved perfectly to apply on you lips and not hard and uncomfortable. Plus, you only need a small amount of product because the shades are so pigmented and opaque – which makes them extra long lasting!

I love how Jeffree is so innovative and there are simply so many amazing and unique shades in the collection, I simply cannot wait to purchase more! I haven’t been able to stop wearing these lipsticks ever since I received them on Christmas Day and I doubt that will change for some time!

The question is, which shade do you prefer?

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Basic Brush Set.

As someone who has loved and used makeup for quite a few years, with time comes experience, learning and the realization that how you apply your makeup is just as important as the finished creation. To sum up my introduction – brushes and blenders are a must have for application!

When I really started getting into perfecting my makeup and skills of some sort, I discovered the wonderful Real Techniques and have been using them for years. However, it was with sheer delight and utter surprise that for Christmas I received the MAC Nutcracker Sweet Basic Brush Set  – which in my opinion, is without doubt their best packaging yet! I must add, as the season is sadly well and truly over – this product is on sale for £31.50, saving around £15. Although some may find this price pretty expensive for, “brushes” I know that some products can often cost near the £100 mark! So for five applicators from a very established brand this is most definitely a great deal.

Within this set you get a lip, foundation or blush, eye liner, fluff and powder brush set all included in a beautiful matching pink and purple bag. Also, not only did my wonderful mum get me this for Christmas – she also picked up a MAC  Fan Brush for highlighting. As expected from this brand, the quality of the product is absolutely wonderful – the brushes are so fine and soft! But yes, with quality you do often pay a fair bit extra and at £20, this was definitely not the cheapest. However, I always think to myself that if you want a long lasting product then sometimes you do have to pay that little bit extra. The packaging is classic MAC – black and silver and most definitely bold and iconic, oozing every inch of style.

This product is perfect for your everyday make up and a wonderful starter pack if you’re just getting into makeup brushes and want something that will stand the test of time. Furthermore, it’s such a great size to take with you whether you’re travelling or simply off out for the day. Although my fan brush was bought separately, it happily fits in the bag with the other products so that’s definitely an extra bonus.

Furthermore, not only is the packaging and each brush absolutely stunning – like seriously beautiful, but the box the set comes in matches the bag and each product! So naturally, I’ve kept that too and I can justify that by the extra packaging keeping the products even safer.

The MAC Nutcracker Sweet Collection is just a dream for makeup lovers or for people who appreciate pretty things and I will be using it all year round for sure! So, I’d definitely grab it whilst you can as it won’t be in stock for much longer – sobs. However, I can’t wait to see what they release next!

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipstick.

The best thing about having a Mum who loves Make Up as much as you do is definitely sharing  and swapping products! Therefore, I was very happy to hear that my favourite lady had purchased Ariana Grande’s New Viva Glam Lipstick entitled, Viva Glam Ariana II” and I could try it myself. Of course, I did not turn the offer down!

The lipstick is described as a, “Deep Cool Matte Orchid Pink” however, as soon as I saw it I straight away thought of MAC’S, “Up The Amp” which is described as a, “Lavender Violet” – this description definitely sounded more accurate in my opinion. Although, both products vary with their finishes – the first being matte and the latter being amplified creme. However, I must add that when I tried on Ariana’s second Viva Glam Lipstick I noticed that it was much lighter than Up The Amp and did have an almost pink tint to the shade.

As with all MAC Lipsticks, the formula of each product is amazing and the matte finish is definitely the best for a long lasting stay power. I feel I judged this shade far too quickly in comparing it to Up The Amp and it truly is a unique shade like no other. This shade is universal with all skin tones and I think anyone who likes a bolder lipstick can definitely pull this off. If you’re used to wearing lighter nude shades than this probably isn’t the lipstick for you. However, in Ariana’s Collection there is also a lipglass in a, “Nude Neutral Pink” – so perfect for fans of a more subtle look than can be worn everyday.

At £15.50, this lipstick is in the mid to high price range but I can definitely say that you get your moneys worth with a quality long lasting product. Therefore, compared to a cheaper product this is worth the money if you ultimately want to spend less over time. Plus, with each Viva Glam product 100% of the purchase price goes towards The MAC Aids Fund which has raised over $400 million dollars towards fighting this awful disease.

If you’ve bought a Viva Glam lipstick before you’ll know that the packaging is slightly different compared to the usual design. As Ariana is the current Viva Glam Girl, the box and product itself features her Signature on a beautiful red metallic background. In my opinion, this is definitely a lot more aesthetically pleasing compared to the standard packaging – although that itself is still very iconic.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks in Beso and Patina.

Before I start reviewing these amazing liquid lipsticks, I have to thank my gorgeous Sophie for introducing me to Stila by buying these two products for me for my Birthday! Stila first came to my attention a few weeks previously when I saw Sophie frequently wear one of their liquid lipsticks called, “Patina” and she couldn’t say enough positive things about it – that’s when I knew it was a must have purchase!

The shades I received from Sophie was her favourite, “Patina” and my go to colour, (red – what else?), “Beso” and I was instantly in love with them. I’m especially glad that one of the shades she bought me was, “Patina” as I doubt I would have bought it for myself as I would assume it wouldn’t suit me. Surprisingly – I was so wrong! Patina is a beautiful mauve nude pink, a really unique colour that is bold and such a lovely shade to wear. I can definitely see why it’s Sophie’s favourite and I’m happy to say it’s one of mine too! Beso is a stunning bold true blue red, the ultimate vintage bombshell shade and a must have in my old soul opinion. I really don’t think you can go wrong with red lipstick, it’s just such a classic and timeless look.

There are so many liquid lipsticks out there now and sadly so many have a lot of flaws and don’t quite match the hype they are given. However, I can without a doubt say that the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks are the best I have ever used! They stay on for hours and do not feeling uncomfortable or drying on your lips as the formula includes avocado oil and Vitamin E. 

Not only is the product beautiful but the packaging is absolutely stunning, featuring a gorgeous bold gold colour for the wand and the font. At £16, the lipsticks are at the mid price range but in my opinion are definitely worth the money. The product is a decent size so should last quite a while and you only need a small amount of lipstick because it’s so pigmented. Furthermore, the wand brush is flexible which makes it a lot easier to apply the lipstick and contour the shape of your lips. In my opinion, this is incredibly important for a liquid lipstick to have as a hard wand brush can make it extremely hard to apply nicely if you don’t own a lipstick brush.

It’s fascinating applying the lipstick and watching it dry from a glossy formula to a matte finish in a matter of seconds! Unlike some liquid lipsticks this dries completely, staying incredibly well and not rubbing off easily like some others sadly do. I absolutely adore these lipsticks and can’t wait to try more from their collection, I can’t thank Sophie enough for introducing me to Stila!

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Santa Sangre.

I’ve liked Kat Von D ever since I remember watching her on LA Ink and seeing her amazing tattoo creations and wonderful talent. Therefore, I may have skipped a heartbeat when I found out that her make up line was finally coming to the UK! Although currently only available in one of the stores in London, you can still buy online from the Debenhams website so everything is still pretty great.

I’ve heard such good things about her brand, especially her liquid lipsticks therefore, I was thrilled to receive my first one for my Birthday a few weeks ago. The shade I have is a beautiful bold red called Santa Sangre and is described on Kat’s website as being the colour of poison apple – loving the Snow White reference! Once again, as I’ve mentioned in many of my lipstick reviews, this colour is perfect for all the vintage lovers out there – red is a must!

As soon as I started to apply the lipstick I realized what the hype about the products was all about, it brushed on so smoothly! The shade was truly pigmented, very vibrant and dried ever so quickly. Plus, it didn’t feel uncomfortable on my lips as previous cheaper liquid lipsticks have which shows that a quality product is definitely worth the price. I’ve been wearing the product all day and I must admit, it has stayed on pretty well and doesn’t look crackly, I could get away with not reapplying it. However, it is described as lasting 24 hours and as much as I love the lipstick I definitely don’t see that happening.

At £16 I was pleasantly surprised by the price tag as I assumed it would be a lot more, it’s in the mid range money wise and I definitely think it’s worth it. The packaging is absolutely stunning and such a statement design, you’d know it was Kat Von D’s without reading the label! The lipsticks are also pretty big so you get a lot of product and won’t have to buy one every week – unless it’s another colour of course! I absolutely adore the beautiful bold pattern with the black and silver contrasting one another, you’re not just paying for the lipstick, you’re paying for the stunning design.

Not only is this product a must have but Kat also has stick lipsticks called,  “Studded Kiss” which come in a stunning iconic case – I’ve not seen anything like it before! They are priced at £16, have the iconic KVD Logo printed into the lipstick and I definitely hope to try one out and review it for you all in the future! What I also love about her Brand is she really covers a huge variety of shades, ranging from your every day pink or nude to a green or blue! It is also Vegan and Cruelty Free which is absolutely wonderful.

Makeup Revolution London Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer in Keep Crying For You.

Today for the first time, I tried one of the many new lipsticks that I recently purchased; Make Up Revolution’s Lip Lacquer in Keep Crying For You. This Brand is exclusive to Superdrug and thanks to one of my closest friends who introduced me to them, I finally tried it  and I’m so happy that I did!

As soon as I saw the liquid lipsticks I knew that I had to try them, I think these products are currently the huge hype in the make up world and I have to agree, I’m very much in love with them – it’s such a cool idea! What’s even better about Makeup Revolution is it’s so affordable, I bought this lipstick for just £3! For such a bargain I definitely couldn’t miss out on trying one and I decided to go for a hot pink, something that stands out and is very feminine.

Obviously for the product being so cheap I wasn’t expecting wonders, however, I was personally surprised overall with how much I liked it. When I started to apply the lipstick I noticed it did look pretty streaky and I did feel slightly worried. However, the formula dried down very quickly and looked completely pigmented and bold. I did use my lip brush for the base coat of my lipstick, then the wand for the overall production which I found very good for shaping the colour.

I first applied the lipstick this morning and after having lunch a few hours later I did notice that a fair amount of the product had been removed from my lips. To be fair, there was still a lot of lipstick present, but as I like my  lipstick to be extremely prominent, I did reapply another coat for the photos. I would recommend if wearing this all day then you should definitely take it with you as it isn’t hugely long lasting, but that is to be expected for such a cheap price.

I adore the overall look of the lipstick, it really does dry very quickly and changes into a bold matte formula. Personally, I do think the lipstick does start to feel slightly drying but with the matte finished I’m not that surprised – a lot of liquid lipsticks can tend to create this overall feel. However, this doesn’t put me off wearing these lipsticks, although it can feel a bit strange it doesn’t really bother me and if it does bother you, then simply apply a lip closs or semi sheer lipstick over it.

The packaging is very much like the Kylie Jenner and Anastasia Beverley Hills liquid lipsticks, it looks just like a lip gloss – but we all know it’s not! The lipstick comes in a gorgeous rose gold packaging which I really love – this seems to be the colour of the moment for sure! Another good thing about this lipstick is when you touch it, the product stays on and does not come off on your fingers, it really is matte.

My conclusion is I will definitely be purchasing more lipsticks from Makeup Revolution and other products too. I think they are very good quality for such a cheap price and they have a huge variety of lipsticks available, so if you’re not into liquid lipsticks then there are four other categories to choose from. I’ve just worked out, that I could buy five of their lipsticks compared to just one mid to high range product which is very appealing!

KIKO MILANO Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick in Cherry 312.

I absolutely adore make up as I’m sure you have probably guessed by now, so what could be better than receiving a beautiful new gift by a Brand you’ve never tried. One of my closest friends kindly bought me my first KIKO Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick in shade 312 Cherry  – she knows me so well, and I have to say I was definitely not disappointed!

The lipstick is incredibly creamy whilst creating a matte finish and I also is very long lasting, I ate my lunch and had a nap and when I woke up the lipstick was still very prominent. I could have got away with not reapplying it but it feels so nice to wear that I actually wanted to!

The colour is of course my signature go to shade as a vintage girl at heart – red! It is the perfect Bombshell colour, a blue toned intense red that creates a statement and works perfectly with classic winged eyeliner and rosy cheeks. I feel like I’ve traveled right from the 1950s!

As soon as I opened the package I noticed the lipstick was shaped in a square tip format, similar to Charlotte Tilbury’s which I also love. I think this is such a great idea as it makes applying the lipstick so much easier and helps with the shaping and contouring the outline of the lips. It can sometimes be quite daunting applying a bold lip colour as you never know how easy it will be to put on but the square tip design is just as good as using a lip brush.

The lipstick comes in a gold and silver packaging which contrast beautifully together and make the product extra bold and eye catching. From memory I can’t think of any other lipstick designed like this which makes it stand out even more and now I want to add more to my collection! There’s also a great variety of shades available, with 19 other lipsticks in the collection ranging from beautiful nudes to shocking purples, therefore providing for everyone.

At £10.90, the lipstick is in the mid price range, not super expensive but not extremely cheap and not one you might be able to afford to buy every week. I personally think the product is definitely worth the money, it’s a beautiful quality and long lasting lipstick, Plus, the case has a magnetic closure, meaning it can’t accidentally be left open or get lost, which is always an extra bonus!

If you like to apply a lip pencil first to create a base and add definition then you’re in luck, all the lipstick colours match the KIKO Ever Lasting Colour Precision Lip Pencils! Therefore you won’t have any mismatching problems and if you can’t be bothered to wear both – you can always use one or the other and get the same look.

The only downside to KIKO – and it’s technically a compliment, is that as far as I’m aware there isn’t a store near where I live, which is such a shame as I’m sure I’d be a regular customer! However, I can order online and free shipping is offered,  so don’t worry if there isn’t a store near you, there is a silver lining.
