MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick

As everyone will know, Kylie Jenner's lips have been a massive topic over the past year. The internet has been flooded with lip tutorials to try and achieve her iconic, big, full lips and so it will come as no surprise that when it was revealed that she wears 'Velvet Teddy' by MAC, the lipstick was sold out for months, and it was almost impossible to get hold of. But the lipstick is back in stock now and has been for a while I think... And so I decided to try it out! I usually tend to just stick to subtle pinks or bright reds (and not a lot in between) but lately I've been experimenting with different colours so that I don't end up buying 10 of the same colour lipsticks just from different brands. Does anyone else do that? I find a colour I like and then every time I see it I think 'ooo that's nice, i'm gonna get that!' Get home, and then realise I have 10 the same already haha. Anyway back to the lipstick...

NARS Blush in Deep Throat

As i've mentioned a million times before on my blog, blushes are something that my make up collection has always seriously been lacking. But being a NARS lover, I thought that it was time to buy one of their blushes to expand my collection, and so I went for 'Deep Throat' which is a classic loved by so many bloggers. Being quite pale, I wanted something quite sheer that wouldn't make me look like a doll, but that would add enough colour to not make me look washed out, and this blush seems perfect for that. It's a pinky/peach colour that is subtle enough to be paired beautifully with a dramatic lip or eyes, yet leaves the skin looking glowing.

Mini Stationary/Homeware Haul

Not too long ago I got myself a new, big white desk which I absolutely love. I'd been meaning to get a desk for such a long time, but was too lazy to move my room around, clear stuff out etc etc. But, I finally got down to ikea and bought myself a very big white desk, with 2 drawers on the front which is perfect for make up storage. Not long after that, I FINALLY got myself a Mac, which I had been intending to buy for a very long time, however every time I got close to buying it something would happen meaning that I would be skint again for another month (for example Ralph's trip to the vets costing £998) which is not ideal. But anyway, rambling on.. I decided that I needed to pimp my desk out a bit, and so I got very carried away with all colourful/chevron and geometric shaped things that I could find in ikea in attempt to give my room some life! So here are some stationary/home bits and bobs that I bought whilst in Ikea,Tiger and a couple of other shops...

If you read my blog, you will know that last week I attended the MAC 'Magic Of The Night' launch event where I got to see all of the beautiful new products from the range, along with some demos and sparkly biscuits! (If you didn't see it, you can read it here) As much I wanted to buy one of everything from the range, I decided to buy the Irresistibly Charming Glitters and Pigments in Gold, which is a kit full of the most beautiful, sparkly gold pigments ever in a cute little case - perfect for Christmas!

Put The 'High' Back Into Your Highlights

A few weeks ago Boots launched a new 'Colour Excellence' range, sadly I couldn't attend the launch event but luckily still got to try the products out. Colour Excellence's aim is to 'maximise colour definition for sharper, longer-lasting highlights' by removing the environmental build up and styling products absorbed in your hair (basically getting all the crap out!) Coloured hair, especially highlights absorb more conditioner than the rest of your hair, and so these products focus completely on removing them.

MAC 'Magic Of The Night' Launch Event

Earlier in the week, MAC in Brighton had an event to celebrate the launch of their new 'Magic of The Night' collection and so I went along to perv on all of the new products! It was a really chilled and fun evening, with the prettiest glittery cookies ever, drinks and make up demos featuring the new range. The packaging is soo pretty, it's a metalic purple/blue theme and most things come in cute boxes with this design. They also re-released some of their current lipsticks, such as 'Please Me' and 'All Fired Up' in this limited edition packaging which looks so cute. I wanted to buy everything! It's all sooo pretty. But I won't ramble on too much about it, I will let you see for yourself how beautiful it all is! So here's some of the photos I took from the event - (they're not the greatest quality as they were just taken on my phone)

October Favourites

I actually can't believe that another month has gone by. It felt like it was Summer last week, and already we're in the count down to Christmas (well I am anyway!) November is definitely my favourite month, not only because it's my Birthday, but because I love the cold evenings, dark nights, big jumpers and all of the Christmas shopping and cute chocolates in the shops! But anyway, here's a few things that I have been loving throughout October... Some of them you're probably fed up of hearing about as I go on about them a lot on my blog, and so apologies for that! I've discovered and fallen in love with so many products this month that I can see being a staple in my routine for months to come...
