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?

Make Up Haul!

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! 🙂

Autumn Make-up Look

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,

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!
