Vamp it up - Winter lips

1 - Rimmel Kate Moss Lasting Finish Matte in 107
2 - Revlon Super Lustrous in Black Cherry
3 - Revlon Matte lipstick in Really Red
4 - 17 Lasting Fix in New Black

My top four drugstore lipstick picks for the winter, of all four my favourite is the Revlon black cherry, perfect super dark red not too pinky/purpley which i think dark lipsticks tend to be (including the kate moss 107). Black cherry wears really well, you can't feel it on your lips really and it doesn't come off onto your glass when your drinking. Bonus. However, i love them all dearly.

Lush 'Melting Snowman; Bath Melt

Lush 'Melting Snowman' Bath Melt - £2.25

Recently i have been loving Lush, i went through a phase last year of using the Lush scrubs and skincare products but i never really got into the bath products. 
Over the last few weeks however i have been trying out the bubble bars, i used (but didn't blog about) candy mountain bubble bar and the pumpkin bubble bar, and i loved them. They didn't create too many bubbles in my bath to be honest but the colour and smell was enough to keep me repurchasing. So when browsing the Lush store last week i decided i would try a bath melt for a change. I went for the melting snowman because of the festive factor mostly but also because it smells amazing, i can't explain the smell very well to be honest it's not a christmassy smell in my opinion but it's just fresh and spicy. The bath melt's are supposed to fill your bath with moisturising oils to leave you soft and smelling amazing. I haven't used this yet i'm saving it to soften me up before a night out, but it claims to have cocoa butter and shea butter, amazing!

"Exquisitely fragranced with Hot Toddy, a favourite blend from Christmas past containing cinnamon, clove, patchouli, benzoin, lime and sweet wild orange oils. But if it isn’t enough to smell of one of our most popular Christmas fragrance - he’s also got a body made of water softening bicarb of soda, cocoa butter and shea butter. All these wonderful butters melt into your bath water, leaving you soft and moisturised. His legacy is your great skin, which means he lives on in the memory of all who knew him."

Quick everyday makeup post, just what i threw on my face before work this morning, it's been so hard to choose what make-up to put on because of the hot weather i feel like it just starts to slide down my face as soon as i get to work because the air-con just doesn't work and is stuck on 26 degrees :|
I never ever wear liquid eyeliner, this is literally so old i don't even know if it's stocked in superdrug anymore but iv'e switched to this instead of my loreal gel intenza gel eyeliner the past few weeks because of the heat, the gel starts to smudge and look messy but the liquid liner does not budge!
And quick fact, the necklace im wearing was once pink, i painted it with an essie nail varnish in fear and desire. DIY

#NOTD Barry M Blueberry

 Barry M - Blueberry 306 - £2.99

So, iv'e decided to attempt to blog again, im attempting to post at least once a week but hopefully more, but we'll see. :| i know im a terrible blogger i'm just so lazy.
Anyway, i got this colour in april and yet iv'e never used it since tonight and actually i really like it, i didn't think i would as blue isn't really a colour i would go for. 
This is just one coat, after taking the photos i applied another coat which wasn't necessarily needed but i just prefer two coats, i like to know my nail is fully polished!

pigmentation - 9/10 - one coat is fine if your in a rush
drying time - 9/10 - a few minutes and its done which is good considering the thickness
application - 8/10 - standard brush, easy to apply.

overall - 9/10

Something to get festive about - ORLY Halloween 2013

Maybe not too exciting but nevertheless... this is the Halloween 2013 collection from Orly and to be honest, it's not fantastic but the fact that Halloween is coming so close and so fast i couldn't help but get a bit excited by it.
So basically there are only four shades in the collection which are all pretty much the same apart from the glitter black.
You may not be able to tell but the two oranges are in fact different shades:

Top left - Orange Punch
Top right - Liquid Vinyl
Bottom left - Goth
Bottom right - Melt your Popsicle

I can't wait for autumn now, get the be thankful Yankee candles out and start wearing shirt jumper combos and chunky scarves. And the sun's only just made it's appearance in the UK... OH WELL.

Anyway, the collection is out mid August in the US and September sometime in the UK.

So for christmas my lovely mother bought me two set's of the millie mackintosh for nouveau eyelashes, i got the soho and portabello and the portabello is definitly my favourite, i wore them on christmas day because i had a wedding to go to and in all the rush i didn't manage to take a picture so i will do that at some point. Last night i wore these for new year and i thought they looked really good, they are a tiny bit more glamorous and big than i would usually wear (that's why i like the portobello so much, they're quite feathery and natural) but for nye i thought they were absolutley fine! I really like the fact that they come with a pair of tweezers to apply and the glue dries quickly. They are really lightweight, you can barely feel them on your eyes which is really good because usually i can't wait to take my eyelashes off when i get in from a night out, and although i personally wouldn't; you can actually wear them when you go to sleep because the glue is eye friendly. If you stick them back in the box before you go to bed they can be reused and i've checked both pairs of mine and they look as good as they did when i first opened them which is good because sometimes i go back to reuse some eyelashes and they look all gross and mangled. ANYWAY, i really really like these lashes and i'm definitely thinking about buying some more, not even just the millie one's the nouveau lashes all look so nice and £8.99 is a good price i think when they come with the mini tweezers and glue especially when you can get a few uses from them!
