Review: MAC Lipstick in Rebel

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?

Review: L’oreal Rouge Caresse Lipsticks

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.

Today’s Look & Outfit of the Day!

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!

Today’s Look!

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.
But, today I decided to give the colour a miss (gasp!), and go for the old faithful smokey eye and a clear, (yes clear!) lipgloss! Check it out below…

Brand Wishlist – Illamasqua

Hello my loves 🙂

Last time I did a brand Wishlist, I was all about theBalm, but now I think it’s time to head over to the dark side and pick a few of my most wanted goodies from one of my favourite brands, Illamasqua.

Firstly, I’ve had my eye on this for aaagggeeesssss! I’ve heard so many great reviews about it and it looks incredible but I just haven’t got round to buying it yet, it’s the Hydraveil (£27). I need it!

20131005-234255.jpg

Next up is the Complement Palette, filled with 4 gorgeous colours in brown and plum tones, this to me is the ideal palette for Autumn, just stunning!

20131005-235221.jpg

Then we have the Liquid Metal in Phenomena, an AMAZING, super pigmented, metallic silver cream that can be used on eyes, lips or cheeks!

Next, it’s onto my favourite products ever, the lipsticks! I absolutely love this shade, ESP, a stunning vivid violet with a matte finish. Deliciously dark and daring!

We can’t forget a nail polish, and the colour I’m lusting after most is Obssess, the most gorgeously, girly, pink!

Last but definitely not least, is the new Velvet blusher in Peaked, a lovely dusky rose colour, perfect for this time of year!

I can’t take lusting after these products much longer, I might just have to shimmy on over to Illamasqua.com and make a couple of purchases, all in the name of the blog of course…

Which Illamasqua products are you sticking on your Wishlist?
