Good morning lovelies! I’m shopping this weekend so I’ve been browsing blogs and online for what treats I should buy. I’m a massive lipstick fan and always more than happy to add to my collection that’s almost exclusively MAC. They’ve always been my favourite – relatively inexpensive, amazing range of colours, good range of textures (matte/glossy etc). I always tend to go for really similar ones. I have so many light pinky shades and a whole load of nudes and only one bold red.
On a recent Selfridges trip, I was browsing the current MAC is Beauty collection and fell in love with pretty much the whole lipstick collection. I swatched a few on my hand and noticed they are much more glossy than the regular MAC lipsticks, but still have a really full colour. This is so ideal for me because I can sometimes get quite dry lips from some of my lipsticks but I love a really full coverage of colour. Long story short – I couldn’t choose which I liked best so I didn’t get any! But I will definitely be purchasing this weekend since I’ve narrowed it down to two now!
You can see why I want them all! Notice Me perhaps isn’t as wearable for me as the others but it’s still undeniably pretty. I’ve narrowed my choices down to Real Redhead and Highlights because my all time fav MAC lipstick is Freckle Tone and I feel like these mixed would be quite similar to this. Honestly though, the more I look at this, the more I want French Twist and Pure Vanity too…. Did it mention it’s my birthday coming up…..?
I stumbled across another thing that excited me recently…. Yep – more lipsticks!
This new MAC collection is rumoured to launch July 9th and I think it’s just genius. I store my lipsticks in a clear Perspex lipstick organiser and since they all look exactly the same, I have the effort of looking at the bottom of each one to find which I want. With these little babies, the outside is exactly the same as the outside so you can just grab the one you want and head out! They are matte which doesn’t sit well on a lot of people’s lips (mine included) but I’m hoping a bit of Vaseline can sort this out because I loveeeee all of them.
Let me know your favourite lipsticks and any other brands you can recommend! Do you have any of these lipsticks?
I’m quite late to post tonight since I’ve been really busy studying for my final exams. Two weeks tomorrow and I will be freeeeee! I can then concentrate on my modelling and get myself prepared for Miss Scuba UK.
Tonight I went out with my family for my nephews 8th birthday so I wanted something really casual but still quite pretty. Thankfully my Missguided order arrived today so I stuck on a new top and my trusty Zara jeans with a pair of pointed courts.
Skinny Jeans: Zara
I have wanted a top like this for ages so jumped at the chance when I saw this on Missguided with 25% student discount! I fell in love with the wrap detail and the long draping back.
I love anything in this sort of nude/pinky shade. The long sleeves are great for this time of year when it’s too warm to wear a coat, and too cold not to.
I finished the look with a delicate opal pendent, gold Michael Kors watch, natural makeup and bouncy curls.
I’m so looking forward to finishing my degree now, I’m definitely going to reward myself with some retail therapy. Can anyone recommend some sweet online boutiques?
One more day until the weekend…..
Every time I’m trying to think of something to wear, eat, make etc – one thing springs to mind! ‘Look on pinterest’ has become the obvious solution for finding inspiration and it’s full of useful and attractive ideas.
I use pinterest for fashion, food, fitness and hair and makeup inspiration and have separated them all into little groups for reference. It becomes a bit of a time consumer, with me sometimes realising I’ve been looking at images of how to style thigh high boots for half an hour….
I’m going to share with you some of my top Inspo pins for fashion. You can check out more of my pins @helenm94
