For a hike now I have been eyeing up the 17 mirror shine lipsticks. So Many love them and I thought it was time I joined the club! I went looking for the revlon lip butters, couldn't find them at my local boots so picked up 3 of these instead! I decided on the popular Beehive, Purple haze and Flirtini. All three are very sheer and give the effect of a gloss would but only wear around an hour. I wouldn't say I love them but they are nice just to throw in your handbag an apply without a mirror!
Do you love anything from 17?
not very good swatches- flirtini, purple haze, beehive
This month, after the hype, I decided to jump on the beauty box bandwagon and order the Harods edition of tue glossybox. I was really looking forward to a Burberry lipstick but ended up with the other box!I won't go into much detail I'm sure you have already heard a lot about the box on various blogs. I have tried the mascara and love it as well the moisturiser (£127 full price!) is pretty good too! My favourite thing has to be the amazing packaging. I'm considering getting the subscription?!
What's out favourite beauty box?
I love a good tag post, so
when I saw everyone doing this on youtube, I had to post my
1. GREED: What is your most
inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
Inexpensive has to be my natural collection Tinted Moisturiser which I mix with some of my foundations that are too dark or if I want a really lioght coverage.
Expensive has to be the naked palette. I don't know if this counts as it was apresent but if yyou hadn't realised from previous posts; I LOVE IT! Or my Sigma brushes (if that counts?). 2. WRATH: What beauty products do you have a love/hate
relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?
Probably blusher as although I like them, I just cannot work out the point of having them in different colours- they all look the same!!
So far I haven't really found any products that hard to get hold of. 3. GLUTTONY: What are your most
delicious beauty products?
Has to be my MAC lipsticks as the taste and smell amazing!!!! 4. SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect, due to
Probably primers as many people have said- mainly due to the fact I don't own a very good one! 5. PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the
most self confidence?
Defenitely concealer as I have dark circles under my eyes and often blemishes! I also find it hard to leave the house with out my beloved mascara and pressed powder. 6. LUST: What attributes do you find
most attractive in the opposite sex?
Intelligence, not taking yourself too seriously and being open minded. 7. ENVY: What items would you most like to receive
as a gift?
Thats a hard one! At the moment either Chanel bronze universal or perfumes!
I tag you all and Nicola! Just leave a link
At the moment I have been wearing the same look every day. Bronze eyes, pink cheeks and pink lips ;) I have been loving my mineralise eyeshadow 'in the sun' and blush 'subtle breeze' both from the naturally MAC collection. Also lipglass in 'style packed' with matching lipstick in 'quick simmer'. I have mainly been using my revelon colour stay foundation with my MAC haute and naughty mascara.
Whats your daily makeup routine?
(sorry for the horrible photography!)
When MAC madly released so many collections I new that I would have to place an order. Luckily, I didn't do too much damage and only purchased 3 things; a lip pencil, lipstick and lipgloss. I chose a lipstick from the cook MAC collection in quick simmer which matches perfectly with the lip pencil in embrace me. Then I also chose a lipglass in styled packed. Here are some pictures; the lipstick and pencil together, then with the gloss on top and the swatches.
Did you pick up anything from any of the recent collections?
My first ever MAC lipstick! I had my eye on this one for a month before buying eventually buying it. Mac describe it as a 'red-toned plum' in which I would agree and is also a creamsheen formula. It wears for around 4 hours when applied straight from the tube. I usually apply a thin layer with my finger, blot and repeat twice, sometimes applying a gloss.
If this lipstick is anything to go by, I shall be purchaseing more in the future! I have my eye on velvet teddy, girl about town and angel.
Do you own any MAC lipsticks or have your eye on any?
