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?
Hi loves! 🙂
How excited are all of you for Halloween? It's one of my favourite times of the year when it comes to make up and dressing up because it means you can be as creative and crazy as you want, I mean, what other time of the year could you go out in a full body, painted-on skeleton body suit?!
Anyway, here are my top 5 Halloween looks that I've been Pinning this week! 🙂
1. Little Red Riding Hood
2. Bane-Inspired Mask
3. Pop Art
5. Corpse Bride
Have you guys got your costumes picked out already? Or are you taking inspiration from Pinterest like me? Let me know 🙂
Love & Lipstick,
I’m literally so excited while I’m writing this, I feel like I cant write it fast enough! The new Benefit lipsticks have arrived, eek! Check them out, I’m so excited I feel like revisiting all my old Benefit lippies and doing a post on those too!
The packaging is super pretty (as is most of their stuff!), and is decorated in a quirky 1920’s style, which I love, I’m game for all things retro!
Benefit were definitely right when they called these babies hydra-smooth, they are so soft and hydrating on the lips it’s ridiculous, the texture is super creamy and they literally just glide on.
So, they come in 10 A-HH-MAZING shades of gorgeousness which I’ve swatched for you below, and I just thought I’d let you see, I’m wearing ‘Talk Flirty!’ today, which is a subtle rosy pink-red. The staying power is great with these too, this one even stayed put while I chomped my way through a pot noodle for lunch so they definately mean business!
Pigmentation of these lipsticks is pretty good, they’re quite glossy, which is a new love for me because I am an avid matte lipstick fan but I do actually like these. At first go, the colour payoff is quite subtle and sheer but a couple of swipes soon builds up a gorgeous colour so you can check out the shades below and let me know what you think! 🙂
Tutti-Cutie: Sheer Coral
Fling Thing: Berry Pink
Dare Me: Bright Fuschia-Red
Wing Woman: Glossy Nude

Let me know what you think ladies! 🙂
