Hi loves! 🙂
The other day I picked up a MAC lipstick that I've had my eye on for agess. It's called 'Rebel' and it's an absolutely stunning purple-y plum, gorgeous for this time of the year.
It's a Satin finish, which means that it's still creamy, matte and full of colour but a lot less drying on the lips than the matte finishes. As you all know I the satin and amplified finishes from MAC are my absolute favourites because they're so packed with colour, and you can always find literally any colour that you could ever want, they last forever too which is a bonus! Check out the swatch below 🙂
What do you think? What's your favourite MAC lipstick?
Hello my loves!
I hope you all had a good weekend, I'm sorry I haven't been posting much this week I've been super busy with work and everything!
But I did find time to go shopping (I know, naughty!) and pick up a few bits and pieces that I've had my eye on for a while now and I couldn't wait to get home and play with it all so I could get on and tell you all about it! So here's what I got..
MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel
Smashbox Oil-Free Photo Finish Primer in Light
Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara in Black
Smashbox Smoke Box Eye Palette
*The MAC Fluidline wasn't for me but I just thought I'd include in the picture, and I also bought MAC lipstick in Rebel and forgot to put it in there!
I also came home with a little sample pot of the Creme de la Mer Moisturising Gel Cream that I can't wait to try!
Swatches coming soon! 🙂
Love & Lipstick,
Hello loves! 🙂
Today, I decided to try out a different look using some lovely autumn colours so I dug out my Sleek iDivine Monaco palette and got stuck in!
It's got a lovely mix of colours, some brights, some pastels and some neutrals, perfect! I absolutely adore the Sleek palettes, I've got a few of them, and I love them because there's a massive range of colours, they're long lasting, reasonably priced and super pigmented.
I decided to go for the three colours above, I'm not sure of the names though!
So, I started with the lightest colour, a matte beige colour, and applied it all over the lid and right up to the brow bone.
Then, I applied the middle colour, a super pigmented bronze-y red over the lid. (It looks a lot more orange in the picture than it really is).
Finally, I used the matte plum (which is gorgeoussss) in the crease and blended it up and out for a smokey look.
Finish with a flick of liquid liner, some mascara and a plum lipstick (I'm using No Competition by Benefit) and your good to go! 🙂
Love & Lipstick,
Hello lovelies! 🙂
I met a friend in town today for coffee and a catch up and naturally when I’m left alone in town, I tend to drift towards the make up counters..so off I headed to Boots with the intent of buying myself a(nother) lipstick, for the blog of course…
Now, for some reason, I’m not sure why, but L’oreal just never seems to take my fancy, I’m always hearing great reviews about their products, I’m just not drawn to it as much as I’d like. But, today I spotted this gorgeous pink lippie from their Rouge Caresse range and just decided to go with it 🙂
Firstly, I just have to say that I think the packaging is super sleek and pretty and I just really like it. The silver tube also looks great against the colours of the lipsticks themselves, it really makes the colours pop.
The shade above is Cheeky Magenta.
Now, any of you guys that read my blog regularly, know that I love a bold, bright and generally matte lipstick but I’m glad I went for something different and picked this little baby up! It’s smooth, glossy and feels amazingly moisturising on the lips.
All of you know by now that I am a huge fan of a bright lip, and today this gorgeous, vibrant violet took my fancy! Hope you like it 🙂
And how did I get this look, I hear you ask? Read on to find out!

Hello pretties! 🙂
Does anyone else subscribe to the newsletters from clothing websites and then when they constantly email you with offers of 50% off and free delivery?! For a shopaholic like me, this is dangerous territory, when I see that, I literally can’t help myself, I HAVE TO BUY STUFF! Ahhh!
This is exactly what happened to me on Friday when I received an email from Boohoo.com, telling me that there was free delivery and a half price sale. Well, credit card disaster.
On the upside, my order arrived yesterday and I bought this gorgeous skirt which I couldn’t not show you since this season is all about the punk spirit!
Since I was feeling all punky today, obviously I had to match my make up so here it is!
And here’s how I did it..
Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in Beige
Creme de a Mer Translucent Powder
MUA Bronzed Perfection Bronzer
Benefit Rockateur blush
Urban Decay Naked palette (Naked all over lid, Creep in crease and Virgin as highlight)

Hope you like it!
Love & Lipstick,
As you all know, I love a bold lip whether I’m heading off for a night out or doing my weekly shop at Tesco. Everything about an eye-catching lipstick makes you feel better and a bright colour always brightens up the day.
