oh... it must have been pay day...

It seems that each month as pay day rolls around I already have in my head exactly what I want to buy already. This month I splurged a little bit more than I normally would on cosmetics, here's what I bought!

Benefit 'they're real' mascara

MAC Peachykeen blush

MAC Glitter and ice lipstick in Whirls & Twirls

Paul & Joe lipstick C

 NARS satin lipstick in Niagara

MAC Creme D'Nude Lipstick

MAC Angel Lipstick

Models Own Lemon Meringue
and Rimmel Lycra Pro 312 Ultra Violet

VO5 'give me texture' Oomph powder'

Lipsticks with flash, Left to right;
Creme D'Nude, Whirls & Twirls, Angel, Paul & Joe, Niagara

The lipstick that I was most excited about receiving was MAC Creme D'Nude, however turned out to be the most disappointing. It literally looks like I' ve applied a pale concearler to my lips and then a clear gloss on top. NOT a good look.
The Paul & Joe lipstick is the first product I've bought from the brand, and look at how beautifully packaged it is! And the design on the actual lipstick is amazing, so nice in fact it's making me not even want to use it for fear of wearing it down so much!

Celeb style crush...Billie Faiers!

One of the TOWIE characters I think is totally brushed past and should be given more story lines is Billie Faiers, sister of fellow cast member, Sam Faiers. She is simply lush! I think she has a beautiful old hollywood look, and I love her style! I am currently waiting patiently for the online version of her boutique called 'Minnies' to launch, as this is where alot of her outfits are from!

Khloe Kardashian for Nivea

How lush does Khloe Kardashian look in this photograph?! I love everything about it, the big beautiful hair, the smokey eyes and nude lips. Love it!


Hair envy!

I am having serious hair envy right now after coming across these styles, they are to die for! So cute and girly :) if only I could master how to do some of them myself!

Classic Chignon


Triple Braided

Proenza Schouler S/S 2011

Alexander McQueen S/S 2011


Does anyone know how to recreate any of these? I might have a go...but I think I know how they will turn out... shockingly bad!

Outfit of the night!

The best bit of going out for me, is getting ready! I always drag out doing my hair, make up, tan, nails and choosing what to seems to be better than the actual going out at the moment!

Dress, River Island. Tights Henry Holland. Black wedge shoes, New look

I am so gutted that as soon as I put these tights on, i got a ladder on the back of my leg, luckily I managed to conceal it with my dress as it was just long enough. But arrgh still so annoying for a pair of tights I stupidly spent £19.99 on!! But anywhooo I still really liked them, and for the one night I wore them, I loved them!

Eyes, Urban decay New York Palette
Mac Beautiful Iris
Elf Eyelashes
Face, Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
Benefit Sugarbomb (used as hightlighter)
Mac Blush in Dollymix
Lips, Mac Shy Girl

MAC, elf and Benefit haul

I went shopping!

Benefit Sugarbomb

I couldn't decide between this and Bella Bamba, they are both really lovely and the colours suit my skin colour really well. Bella Bamba has only just come out so I decided I would get this one first, as I have wanted it the longest :) It looks kind of weird with the 4 different shades but if you swirl your brush around them you get a really nice shimmery blush. You could also use the lightest peach shade as a highlighter on your upper cheekbones!

Mac Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Dollymix and Benefit Sugarbomb

This is my first Mac blush, can you believe it?! I wasn't sure what colour to go for (I bought all of these from the website so I couldn't see the colours properly) so anyways, I scouted fellow bloggers and saw that the colour most talked about seemed to be Dollymix. I have to say that when it came through the post I was a little shocked at how bright it was. I haven't used it yet but I am very excited to try it!

Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss in Rouse

I bought this Illamasqua lipgloss mainly because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about surrounding the brand, its a lovely sheer shade of bright pink and i will definately be buying more! 

Mac Viva Glam GAGA Lipgloss

I have been wanting either the Lady gaga Viva Glam Lipstick or the Lipgloss for a while (the original one not the new one) and i finally decided to get the lipgloss (lipstick next!) I love it! Its such a lovely colour, a pale bubblegum pink, and it smells amazing.

 Left, Mac Impassioned (Amplified) Right, Mac Pink Nouveau (Satin)

These are my favourite Mac lipsticks, Impassioned and Pink Nouveau. I bought Impassioned last summer whilst my sister had her make up done for her prom, I love the punchy bright orangey, red colour (if you can imagine what im trying to describe?!) Pink Nouveau was my first ever Mac purchase, and I am on my 4th one! Its such a cute barbie pink :)

Mac cremesheen lipstick in Shy Girl

I recently bought this lippy as advised by Rachel from Glimmer and Glow :) I love this colour, its such a subtle coral colour, completely different from my recent disappointment with elf...another post to explain that! It is also a cremesheen so is so moisturising and is like wearing a lipbalm!
