No.17 Mirror Shine in Nudist Peach Review

Nudest Peach is one of the colours from the No.17 Mirror shine rang from Boots. While in the packaging it looks a red/brown tone it defiantly come out a light brownish on the lips. However, it is very sheer and thus is actually quite flattering. I have several lipsticks from this range, with one being a firm favorite.  What I love about them is that they are moistrising and can be slicked on without the need to look in the mirror as you can't go wrong due to them being quite sheer. Yet they give a nice colour, think Revlon Lip Butters. While it has been said the packaging it cheap they are a bargain price and I personal love the colour of the packaging as it makes them very easy to find in your handbag!

Revlon Nearly Naked and Barry M Gelly Nails Haul

I picked up two of the products that have been circulating on the blogs the last couple of weeks. I picked up the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation in the colour 130 shell and cannot wait to try this out tomorrow doing my makeup this morning  I was so impressed with the shade selection normally you only have a choice of around 6 if your lucky.

 I also picked up two of the Barry M Gelly nail paints in Dragon 11 and Lychee 10. I really like my nails to have a high shine so I'm hoping that I will be impressed by these. Reviews of both of these new beauty buys will appear on my blog shortly. I had to include a picture of the Barry M stand, it just looked so pretty. Barry M never fail to impress me with their new lunches especially for the price. 

Are any of you trying any of these two new releases?

Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch review...

I got the Michael Kors MK5263 rose gold bracelet watch for Valentine's day which I was thrilled to bits about. I always eye these up when I'm in town but never thought that I would even own one. I have worn it everyday that I have had it and keep finding myself looking at it throughout the day. I love wearing it with other bracelets and can't wait to go shopping to find some other rose gold bracelets to wear with it. It is quite heavy but it doesn't bother me. I think all the Michael Kors watches are beautiful and they have so many beautiful styles. Believe it or not this is the first watch I have ever owned! I don't think the pictures do it justice and it is really hard to capture its true colour nevertheless I am sure you have seen others with this watch as it is quite popular at the moment along with all the other rose gold watches that they do.

Do you have or lust after a Michael Kors?

Topshop lip crayon in Wave Goodbye review...

This Topshop Lip Crayon in the colour Wave Goodbye was a recent impulse purchase. It is also the first make-up product I have tried from Topshop as am always skeptical about the quality of own brand make-up  lines. However, how wrong I was with this it is the perfect everyday pink lipstick. I was surprised at how easy it was to apply in the form of a pencil and am also impressed with how glossy the finish. It has been getting a lot of love over the past few days and I desperately need to purchase a sharpener big enough to bring it back its former glory.

What Topshop make up do you love?

Michael Kors Large Selma Top-Zip Satchel Bag...

I have never looked at Michael Kors bags before but while out shopping this weekend I saw this and it was love at first sight. I just love the structure of the bag and also think it looks similar to the Celine bags which are so popular at the moment. I just think it would go with any outfit and would probably be one you could use for such a long time as definitely has a classic feel to it. This bag could be used for work and play. It's priced at £358 so while it is expensive it is not as bank braking as say a Mulberry or Celine. Nevertheless I suspect I will still only admire for afar and it will remain a handbag crush and never shall we meet. If I was to lay my hands on one I would have to opt for the black but I also think the brown would be lovely in the summer. 

What designer handbag are you falling for at the moment?

Mac Lazy Sunday lip and Cheek Colour Review

mac lazy sunday swatch review

mac lazy sunday swatch

On the weekend I went to the Cosmetic Company Outlet in Portsmouth and picked up this perfect product. I have been to the CCO once before and this time I was far more impressed than before. There was so many Mac products I could have gone made but as I only had a few minutes I just picked this one up.It is a milkey pale pink but what I like about this product is that it is so buildable to get a highly pigmented colour or just a subtle tint to the lips. I think this will become a well worn firm favorite in my make-up bag. It was priced at £12.50.

Just thought I would let you all know that Look Beauty is offering 50% of lots of their products. This seems like a fantastic offer if you are yet to try the brand. Offer is available on their website and ends 11th March. They have mascaras for just over £3 and eye-shadows for £2. I thought that there was some real bargains to be had so thought I would share with you. 

L'Oreal Top Coat Confettis Review...

I Love this new top coat from L'Oreal called Confettis I personally think it makes my nails look like speckled eggs and can't wait to try this out over multicoloured pastel nails in the hope it looks like Cadburys mini eggs! I picked this up for £4.99 in Boots and am wearing it over Rimmel 60 second in the colour 405 Rose Libertine, which I am on my second bottle of.

Rihanna Mac collaboration 2013

Rihanna has joined forces with Mac to create this collection.While I love rose gold at the moment I am not sure about it with the pink. I feel this could be any make-up brand aimed at young girls. While the lipstick would be a no go for me the eyeshadow quad looks really wearable. I'm not sure what the compact is yet, be it a bronzer or beauty powder. To me it resembles a previous release by Elizabeth Arden in their  rose gold collection. I am not sure if I am a fan yet I am sure that this will still be a sell out collection.

Are you tempted by anything?
