After playing some of the big leagues, Reading and Leeds festival and radio one’s live lounge to name a few the marmozets ‘ debut album the weird and wonderful marmozets has had punk rock fans sitting on the edge of their seats in anticipation for months. The album-which dropped on iTunes just last month- is cram packed with crescendos and vocals that will give you goosebumps they’re just that good. The album starts with born young and free, a song that just screams teenage anthem and prepares us for the greatness that is to come along with the rest of the record. The album varies its tracks from calm and catchy to giving you the urge to run around naked while screaming at the top of your lungs I JUST DON’T GIVE A F*CK . Drummer Josh Macintyre has serious talent and doesn’t fail to show this in every song including my personal favourite cover up while sister Becca gives the entire album what it needs- a steer into a less mainstream genre.
Overall the album isn’t the most original with a paramore feel evident right from the beginning however this album symbolises that the belief that pop punk is dead is ludicrous and gives us the hope that the next few years in the music industry won’t be full of wannabe one direction’s. If you’re looking for an album that continuously features single worthy tracks then this is exactly what you need to buy and the fact that this is a debut album just puts the cherry on top. Definitely a 5/5.
Autumn can mean multiple things to a person: leaves, bonfires, Halloween, the list could go on and on but for make up junkies like me it's all about the glorious plum lipsticks that will now line every beauty counter in every drug store shop in every shopping centre. Over the years I've accumulated many- my personal favourite still being plumful by Mac!- however with a £20 Topshop voucher in my hand the urge to try another was burning my inner girl like the extra hot peri peri sauce at nandos. After swatching over twenty lipsticks (go big or go home I say) I settled on the little beauty that is Twin. Now it does appear to be jet black and trust me, I've already gone through the turning of age emo phase so I was put off at first, but after swatching I snapped it up and ran to the counter.
It's the perfect shade of plum; it can be paired with a simple winged eyeliner (which I'll be doing a tutorial on soon so watch this space!), a grunge brown eyeshadow effect or when blotted can just look like a simple tinted balm. Its texture is similar to a creme sheen which I find perfect in the winter as I wouldn't wish dry chapped lips on my worst enemy and lasts for around 4 hours no matter how much running around you're doing.
Without a liner it is a messy product to apply (and nobody wants the Miranda Sings look) so I would recommend using a brush- my personal favourite to use is the real techniques detail brush as it's just the right size and doesn't shed its bristles during application- however if you've got time and patience you probably won't need one.
Overall I rate this product 4/5 but be sure to comment below if you've tried it your opinions or your favourite plum lipsticks at the moment.
