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!

Left, Mac Dollymix. Right, Benefit Sugarbomb

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!

I'm home :)

Hey dolls! As some of you know I recently went on holiday to Egypt, I was soo worried about the riots going on and many countries were advising their citizens not to travel to Egypt at all but I still went ahead and got on the plane. I made the most of the duty free items and bought myself something which I have wanted for ages! It was the Urban Decay book of shadows 3, New York. I loved it! The best eyeshadow palette I have bought in a while, all the colours can be used together and are so pigmented they last all day (and night!) There is a top half of the box that hasd the mirror, it also has a pop up scenery of New York which has little lights all in the buildings which I thought was such a nice touch and really makes it a great buy.

Whilst I was out there I did a bit of snorkelling (yes even with all the shark attacks that went on, but I couldn't pass the opportunity seeing as I was in one of the best spots in the world for sea life) Although, imagine my horror as we set of on the boat from 'Sharks Bay' eek! It was amazing though, I strongly recommend that you do a boat trip if you were planning on going to Egypt. We even saw Dolphins! No sharks, just a few Barracudas and sting rays.


It's now been a week since i've been home, the tan is fading and the suitcase is empty but I had such an amazing time, I would go again in a heartbeat
