New Lip gloss 17's Ultimate Volume in Peach Melba

I was philandering around in my local Boots store a couple of weeks ago when my eyes caught sight of this colour lip gloss. During my university days I used to be more of a lip loss girl than lipstick but in the last couple years I'm far more drawn to lipsticks no doubt due to working and so I now very rarely buy lip gloss. However I saw the new the spring collection by 17 and fell in love with this colour and thought it would be perfect on top of my peachy orange lipsticks.

On my lips this gloss definitely looks more pink than coral but that's because my lips are quite pigmented. The colour of this gloss is more true on the swatch on my hand and you can see that as well as being quite pigmented it has a gorgeous subtle shimmer which I would say is more of a gold as apposed to the silver in the picture. Peach Melba is pigmented enough to wear on it's own but not so opaque to overpower a lipstick you were to wear underneath. An added bonus is it's a volume boosting lip gloss so if your looking to get a fuller pout your in luck. I'm really looking forward to combining this with lipsticks for the summer when I'm bronzed from the sun and brave enough to wear a bright lip.

Mac Ripe Peach on my cheeks

So I finally got around to sorting my camera situation out so as earlier promised here is Mac's limited edition blush ombre in Ripe Peach on my cheeks.

To be honest I was a little hesitant in posting as you can probably tell by the pics I am incredibly tired at the mo and so have dark and slightly puffy eyes. I am a bit of an insomniac at the moment and just feel like rubbish because I have been caffeinating up quite a bit. Hopefully I'll get a good night's rest tonight and I'll feel pretty again by the morning.

I do enjoy wearing this blush, it's subtle yet really helps lift my complexion and I love layering it to make it more intense. I've also tried the pinker shade on it's own and its brill. All in all I love this blush.

Lustings of the day

Just a couple of things I'm lusting over on the asos website. I can't wait for the warmer seasons to begin. These definatley belong in the more conservative work appropriate category but hey I love them all the same.

Telephone Lady Ga Ga and Beyonce

Oh my lordiiiiiiiiiiii, so I've just seen the mini movie music video that these two artists have produced for their new single Telephone. It's brilliant, completely ballsy with a strong edge. I wasn't too keen on the song but now I've seen the video accompanying it I'm completely converted to the Ga Ga hysteria. Yeey for the return of the Pussy Wagon. I love the elements to this video, you feel the respectful dedication to the late Michael Jackson and the running theme to the cult Tarrintino film trilogy Kill Bill. Check out the video let me know what you think.

Aldo love

I'm lusting after these today. I've been into Aldos a couple of times and just end up starring at these in awe. They would look so cute with my spring summer clobber. I'm just not sure about them because of how high the heel is probably because I'm currently recovering from breaking my foot (not a shoe related inccident though!). I'm going to be a restrained adult and say NO(whilst mentally stroking the shoe and hissing my precious). OOOOh to have loved and lost.

Mac Spring Colour forecast Collection

So last Thursday the lastest Mac collections came out. So come late Thursday afternoon I dragged my boyfriend over to Westfields so I could see the collection in person and low and behold the one thing I really wanted was SOLD OUT.

I am ofcourse talking about the Blush Ombre in Ripe Peach. I sulked to myself, blamed my boyfriend for not letting me get to Westfields earlier but resigned myself to the fact that maybe me and Peaches weren't meant to be. I had checked online the week before and Ripe Peach was sold out online too so I knew going to the Mac store was my only chance of getting my hands on it.

So today I was thinking of which stores near me would still have it in stock. I was planning on calling a couple stores to see if they were by any chance back in stock. Out of nowhere I had a genius brain wave and realised that my father worked in the vacinity of a Mac store, he works at Heathrow Airport and whenever I've traveled and gone to the Mac store at terminal 5 they are always instock of everything. So I made the call, implied it was life or death and my father assured me he would make a trip to the store on my behalf on his break. 15 minutes later my blessid father calls me back and asks how many I would like!!!! Lol I asked for the one and was overrrr the moon.

So yes ladies and quite possibly a few gentleman reading, I am now the proud owner of Ripe Peach and I have to say it looks stunning on my skin. I absolutely love it and its the first peach blush I've purchased and I couldn't be any happier with it. I will however swatch and post some pics as soon as a camera is available to me because lets face it pictures are better than words :-)

I also picked up Electric Fuschia lip gloss and Fresh Salmon lipstick from the collection. But will discuss these on a later date as I haven't worn them yet and I'm still on the fence about keeping the purple gloss. As pretty as it is I just don't know when I'll wear it. Have any of you guys got anything from the collection yet? X

I'm back well ish

Hi all so I'm going to start making a real big effort with this blog. I just couldn't get myself into posting before as I'd broken my camera and got frustrated with not being able to post pictures. But hopefully in a couple of weeks I will have a camera that I can use and so I can start my blogging journey. Thanks to all that have subscribed and keep in touch with your thoughts and opinions. X
