MAC Hot Gossip Lipstick

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Hot Gossip-£14

So this is actually my first ever MAC product. Everyone raves so much about their lippys and having read about a million reviews on them I thought I'd take the plunge and invest in one. At £14 a pop their not cheap but you can tell immediately that they are good quality. I chose the colour Hot Gossip which is a Cremesheen Formula. I wanted a wearable colour that wasn't too over the top, which is exactly what this lipstick is! Its a darkish pink colour with blue undertones. The first thing I noticed when I took it out of the packaging was the smell. They smell amazing, just like vanilla! It glides on so easily and I've been wearing it for a good 3 hours now and there's no sign of bleeding of fading. Overall a massive thumbs up from me! I can't wait to start a little collection of them now!

Have you tried this colour? Any suggestions on what colour I should go for next?

Hello Snow!

I know a lot of people aren't fans of the snow. It's inconvenient, cold and ruins plans, but I for one LOVE it. I was so excited to see it start falling when I was at work on Friday. However unfortunately this meant my little car spent two nights in the car park as I was not willing to drive him home along the icy country lanes. 
Anyway, I thought I'd share some snaps with you that I took whilst at work as it looks so gorg in the snow! Enjoy :)

Lil' update and Friday Nails

Bonjour Pals!
Life's been pretty uninteresting lately. Well actually, I say uninteresting but actually that's not strictly true... Since I had a rather eventful and messy New Years Eve I vowed to have a sober January, however we're only 10 days in (New Years Day was a write off) and I've been drunk twice. So my 'dry January' isn't going quite to plan! The latter of these drunken ordeals involved me eating a napkin... Yes, eating it.
The rest of the month so far has been filled with working, babysitting and spending too much money on things I don't need. However I have just subscribed to Glossybox which I think was 100% essential and I'm very excited to receive my first box!

Favourite Cosmetic Items of 2012

So here we are... Hello 2013. To start off the year and round up last year blogwise I thought I'd do a summary of my favourite make up products of 2012. I've seen a lot of these and have enjoyed reading them so here are mine:) 

Sally Hansen Gem Crush Nail Polish
I'm a sucker for glittery nail polish, and this is no exception. It's such a gorgeous colour and very Christmassy. It dries quickly and is opaque after 2-3 coats, perfect! 

Models Own Nail Polish 
Again like the above this not only caught my eye due to the amazing colour but also because its glittery and I tend to have magpie like qualities! 

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
This concealer is mentioned and used by soooooo many people on the bloggersphere, and I can totally see why. It's cheap and definately the best concealer I've ever tried. I highly recommend it! 

Soap and Glory Arch De Triumph Brown Shaper and Highlighter
I never filled in my eyebrows until a month or two ago due to a fear of the farmhouse 'scouse brow' which I hate with a passion (sorry). But this little nifty number totally does the trick and defines your brows without looking completely un-natural. 

Accessorize Blusher
I have to admit, I only really bought this because it looked pretty. I didn't think it would be a particularly good product as I didn't have very high hopes for the Accessorize range if I'm honest. Howeverrrrr, I love it! It's such a lovely colour. It's slightly shimmery and has blue undertones which seem to complement my skin very nicely. Overall I'm very impressed and can't wait to try more of the range this year! 

Maybelline Liner Express Liquid Eyeliner
I have loved this eyeliner for so long! However when mine ran out earlier this year I thought I'd try some other brands out and see if I could find an even better one. The answer was no, I couldn't. So I found myself re-purchasing this little beauty and I'm so glad I did. It's so easy to use and an all time favourite of mine! 

Bourjois Volume Clubbing Mascara
This is the perfect mascara for me without a doubt. It creates volume and length but doesn't clump together in an unatractive way. I only bought it because I needed a waterproof one for when I went in the pool in Malia and didn't think I'd love it as much as I do! 

Kate Moss for Rimmel Matte Lipstick
These matte lipsticks have been such a huge success since they were launched. I love the matte finish of them and this is the perfect pillar box red. Plus, I managed to pick this up in Tescos when they had a deal on making it even cheaper that it originally is! 

Thank you so much for reading, I wish you all a happy new year!
