The perfect spring MAC lipsticks

The perfect spring MAC lipsticks


MAC lipsticks


L-R Saint Germain, Miley Cyrus Viva Glam, Candy Yum Yum, Style Surge & Pink Pigeon. 

A bit late jumping on the spring bandwagon, but it's Spring yay! So far we've actually had some pretty sunny days which means it's time to start changing up the make-up from dark to light. Which involves lipsticks ranging in all bright colours. I thought I would share with you my top five favourite MAC lipsticks for Spring. I am in love with the pink lipsticks which they have at MAC as they're all so bright and stand out, I am occasionally torn to a bit of a cheeky orange too! 

Saint Germain: One of my favourite lipsticks out of the 5, it's a very pale looking pink but it sure does stand out, before I owned this lipstick I had previous dupes of this which look similar but I love the amplified MAC lipsticks as I feel they give a bit more of a glow, but I have found they don't last as long as Matte. But still a great all round lipstick. Full review here

Viva Glam Miley Cyrus: Such a bright stand out lipstick, not for those who are afraid of bright coloured lipsticks, another amplified lipstick which is easy   to apply, I was tempted by this lipstick just because it was from Miley Cyrus and part of the MAC Viva Glam collection.
For the full review click here

Candy Yum Yum: This my favourite MAC lipstick that I own, until recently I was convinced that I was not a fan of the Matte range but I found out that certain lipsticks are more drying to your lips than others, I love the colour of this and how long lasting it is on your lips! Full review here

Style Surge: This lipstick is perfect because it gives an amazing glossy finish but isn't sticky in the slightest, although it doesn't last on my lips as long as I would like it's easy and quick to reapply and is a gorgeous light orange colour which I think is perfect for Spring.

Pink Pigeon: The newest addition to my MAC collection another bright pink matte lipstick I find the colour is fairly similar to the Miley Cyrus one, but I love the texture of this lipstick and the staying power of it is great and can last for hours, yay! Full review will up soon!


Which is your favourite MAC lipstick for SS15?

MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus!

MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus!



Viva Glam!




I love that MAC done a various amount of collaborations with different celebrities such as Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga and Fergie, to create the VIVA glam collection. The difference between this collection from MAC and the others are that all profits from this collection go to the Aids fund, which I think is amazing as it supports others and you get an amazing lipstick out of it. I've got to say this is the first VIVA glam lipstick that I've bought as soon as I heard it was available, As I just love Miley Cyrus, could be the fact that I grew up watching her in Hannah Montana or something to do with the outrageous woman she is now! I love the colour of this lipstick as I think it suits her personality quite well as it's bright and in your face!

The Miley Cyrus lipstick is amplified creme which is my favourite type of MAC lipstick formula compared to matte as it never leaves your lips feeling too dry although I've found this can mean it lasts longer or even just Amplified as it has that creamy feeling to it, but still quite a matte texture. I think the bright pink colour isn't as bright as it what it looks in pictures and it's a bit more toned down than what I originally thought it was going to be, but I think it looks great none the less. You don't need to apply much of the lipstick for it cover your lips which is great as it means more for your money. I did find the staying power on this lipstick to be quite long, it does last throughout the day and only needs to be reapplied when colour needs brightening, it also passed the drink test and stayed on throughout me drinking through the day.

 The packaging for all of the VIVA glam collection is different to normal lipsticks with a red inside and also on the outer packaging. It still has the same black outer packing which we all know and love as MAC. As well as featuring the celebrities signature, on the inside also, which gives the lipsticks that bit more of a personal touch, I love the signature done by Miley it's so swirly and pretty and I only wish I could make myself a better signature (must practice this!) Finally this MAC lipstick is no exception to any others and it still has that amazing vanilla scent which you get which you open the lipstick- giving you that full experience.

Love MAC lipstick? I wrote a review of Candy Yum Yum!

Updated MAC collection | Beauty

Updated MAC collection | Beauty


As some of you may know I am a HUGE fan of MAC lipsticks, so much prettiness and a huge variety of colours which all smell amazing. In the summer last year I did a MAC collection post which you can read here and although I am missing a few colours from my last collection *moving house meant misplaced makeup* I have managed to get my collection up to 14 (two came after I wrote this post, damn) but here is my most recent MAC collection and I hope you enjoy it. 

My MAC collection


The pretty pinks: 
These three pinks are super easy to wear, perfect for days at work or going out in the evening. Three very different shades with Vegas Vault, Plumful and Saint Germain, I love the shades because of the finish as much as the colour Lustre and Amplified leave a stunning shine on your lips and make the lipsticks appear to be extra glossy. If you fancy reading a review on Saint Germain you can here.

MAC pretty pinks

The Nudes: 
The two latest editions to my collection are nude colours, I decided it was time to see what the 'hype' was about and went for two colours in the shades Viva Glam II and Twig. I have heard lots of amazing things about Twig so I decided to go for it and it was a super choice as it's such a simple colour to pull of yet, looks insane. Secondly Viva Glam II although I've only wore this shade a few times I still think it's super pretty and although isn't bright like what I am used to it's perfect for those days when I am feeling 'no makeup'. Both of the lipstick finishes are Satin which means they are long lasting and give an opaque finish.

MAC the nudes

The stand-outs: 
My three favourite lipsticks from my collection, Up The Amp, Heroine and Royal Matte which are all known to be quite daring and out there, but I love those types of shades. Royal Matte being a blue matte shade (I've never worn blue before, but I freakin' love it!) Herione is a dark purple a perfect step into purple lipsticks as it's not too out there but still is beautiful and very purple. Finally Up The Amp which I feel is more of a light purple and is an amplified lipstick so totally different to the other two. Up The Amp is very pigmented and it lasts for hours upon my lips which makes me super in love with it. I will always reach for Herione if I don't know which other lipstick to wear as it always makes me feel fierce and fabulous.

MAC the stand out shades

The brights:  
The first MAC lipsticks I purchased were bright colours and I am super happy I have them in my collection although I can't wear them much at the moment as I feel they are more for spring I love them all and think they're perfect for those who love bright colours and pretty pinks. Starting with the colour Im-passioned a beautiful amplified pink shade perfect for those who are looking to make a statement and the lipstick is super long lasting so perfect for those nights out. Next is my first VIVA glam lipstick, in a bright pink and I was slightly swayed by the fact it was from Miley Cyrus a super pretty pink similar to Im-passioned with a similar finish too. Next is Candy Yum Yum, a perfect pink for those who prefer MAC shades, and although I am hit and miss with MAC I do enjoy this shade on occasion. The final lipstick of my brights collection which is pictured is girl about town, I've seen many people wear this and it looks fab so I went for it, another amplified shade which looks crazy beautiful on and lasts all day, one of my favourite pink shades. One that was photographed was Relentlessly Red and I decided to mention this one because it's a Retro Matte which is a different finish to all of the others pictured a Retro Matte lipstick is similar to the matte with it's drying power but it supposed to give you the look of 50's lipsticks and make you feel stunning.

Mac Lipstick Review

Mac Lipstick Review





It has finally happened I finally got a mac lipstick, I have been wanting since I became a blogger, everyone hypes about them and now it's my turn! For a birthday present I received the shade Ruby Woo which is the perfect shade for me, I love red lipsticks I own so many! Mac lipstick is quite different to any other I've tried, I found the lipstick a little difficult to apply, so on the second time of wearing it I decided to put a clear lip balm on and it glided on, once it was applied it stayed on all day long, finally a lipstick which does this! The colour stayed bright and it is a lovely shade of red, for all you lovers of red lipstick this is one you need in your collection for sure- it's the classic red that every girl needs in their collection It sounds quite silly but it just feels great to have an expensive lipstick in my collection and I love looking at the packaging as it just looks premium, I can tell MAC is going to be on going love affair of mine.

You can never have too many lipsticks right?

MAC lipstick review// Saint Germain & Candy Yum Yum

MAC lipstick review// Saint Germain & Candy Yum Yum


 It has happened once again, I went on the MAC website and ended up purchasing myself two lipsticks that I have wanted forever and a day, but have never been able to justify buying them out of the blue, so I decided it was finally time and although they are quite bright and summery I am one to wear bright lipsticks all year round so this doesn't bother me.

 Saint Germain isn't as bright to wear as Candy Yum Yum, but it is such a pretty light pink colour which looks amazing on, it can be worn to work and university and still stand out, I am used to wearing brighter colours so this is a bit different for me but I loved it all the same! Saint Germain is an amplified creme lipstick makes it more shiny and feels lovely on the lips. The pink of this lipstick reminds me a bit of Barbie, a very girly colour!

 Candy Yum Yum is a bright pink and it is a matte lipstick which I do enjoy but its not overly drying which I have found previous matte MAC lipsticks to be! The colour is vibrant and perfect for a night out or a day when I am feeling extra daring, as I am sure most of you will know MAC lipsticks have a massively long staying power and smell like vanilla which I love, and it just tells me it's a MAC lipstick. I love this lipstick and I am sure I will be repurchasing!

My Top Winter Lipsticks | Beauty

My Top Winter Lipsticks | Beauty


If you've been reading my blog for a while or know me in real life you'll know I am obsessed with dark lipsticks especially purple ones and I have so many lipsticks I decided it was time for another insight into my draw of lipsticks and what colours I love to wear during the winter months. Although this post does say lipsticks there is one lip stain to go with them because I love it so much and it's such a lovely red. I would love to know what you think of my choices and if you would wear any of these colours? 


GOSH matte lipstick in shade Plum: 
I adore this shade firstly because it's a deep purple and secondly because it has an amazing price tag, I love all GOSH lipsticks as they are an amazing price for the quality and they last ages once applied which I can find not always the case with drugstore lipsticks. Although I haven't always been a fan of matte lipsticks I am starting to grow into them and I am always reaching for this shade when I go out in the day. It's an easy to shade to pull of as opposed to some of the shades in this list and it's a great purple lipstick to start with if you are unsure about purples.The smell of the lipstick smells similar to the MAC ones so another bonus right?

GOSH lipstick in Plum

MAC Herione: 
This is hands down my favourite lipstick ever and I wear it throughout the year, but it's a perfect shade for winter a bit brighter than the previous lipstick by GOSH but still a lovely purple all the same, another matte lipstick and the one that made me fall in love with matte lipsticks. I find winter lipsticks always tend to be matte for some reason which I am starting to love. I don't find this lipstick drying at all which is good as some MAC matte lipsticks can be. I have to say this lipstick lasts all day and looks as good at the end of the day as at the start and I find myself hardly using any of it when I apply it so it's well worth the money.

MAC herione lipstick

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Hot pepper:
Although this lipstick is completely different from my other picks in the fact that it is bright red, it is another Matte choice, the difference between this product and the others is it is a lip stain. You apply the lip stain like lip gloss and after a few seconds it dries to your lips just like a lipstick and has a massively long staying power, I do often like to apply gloss on the top of this as it gives you an extra luxurious feel but without is just as great. This is a bright red so maybe not for those who are scared to pull of a bright lip colour, but perfect for those who fancy a challenge.


Wet N Wild Coffee Buzz: 
Now although you can't buy this one in the UK I thought I would add it to the list as it's such a gorgeous favourite of mine and it actually looks black in the picture but it's actually a dark Maroon on the verge of being brown which is a little different from the others but still awesome all the same. Another matte lipstick, and not as long lasting as the others but still really pretty and looks amazing if you like dark lippies.

Wet N Wild Coffee Buzz

For some reason the picture of the Milani lipstick went missing but I thought I would still give it a mention in this post, the shade which is picture in the top photo is sangria and is a similar shade to Herione, but doesn't smell quite as nice and has a less longer staying power but at the same time it's still amazing for those winter days and a fixture in my handbag.

MAC Lipstick- Dangerous.

MAC Lipstick- Dangerous.


After receiving a MAC lipstick for my birthday back in January I have been hooked on MAC lipsticks although they are little pricer than the lipsticks you buy in boots they are worth every penny, when finding out Debenhams have 10% off everything I decided to treat myself to a lipstick I had my eye on for ages, which was Dangerous. I am a big fan of red lipsticks I think they look very classic and effortless. Dangerous is more a bright red which suits me fine, the lipstick goes on so smoothly and smells fabulous, I'm not the only one who loves the smell right? The lipstick itself lasted on my lips for an entire day, even survived food and drink, bonus! If you are yet to treat yourself to a product by MAC do it, you won't regret it.

What are you favorite MAC lipsticks?

Chatterbox Review.

Chatterbox Review.


Who doesn't love a bit of a MAC lipstick every now and again, and as I am slowly but surely building up my collection of MAC lipsticks, my next conquest is Candy Yum Yum, seriously the most pretty lipstick out there, anyway on to my most current purchase, of Chatterbox. I've been lusting after this for some time now, it is a gorgeous pink shade and looks even more amazing on the lips, I had a lot people recommend Chatterbox to me before I bought and I think it's perfect for in the day as it's quite a subtle pink and it's not overly bright, this is my first MAC lipstick which didn't have a matte finish and I do actually prefer it to some of the ones which I own which are matte, like Ruby woo I feel dries your lips out and doesn't look great on me. Chatterbox has an amplified creme finish which is just an extra creamy/silky finish.  So chatterbox feels and looks great when on and smells like vanilla, I just love it when lipsticks smell lovely, and the staying power of this lipstick is relatively good, it doesn't last as long as i'd like it do as it comes off whenever I eat or drink, but I think matte ones tend to be better for their staying power. I love how much it hydrates your lips after using, I have used this so many times since I have bought it just over a week ago, definitely my favorite out of my collection. 



Which MAC lipsticks do I need to get next & what are your favorite ones?

Haulin' With Octer | Lifestyle

Haulin' With Octer | Lifestyle


One of my favourite past times is shopping, I can't help but wander on a variety of websites online daily from fashion, to the latest lipstick and even to the Disney Store. I am forever going shopping into cities and buying lots of cute things for my ever growing collection, so today I thought I would bring you a mini haul from the website Octer. If you don't know about Octer they are a fashion start up but offer lots of other goodies from a variety of websites like House Of Fraser, Boots and John Lewis. On their website you can find a variety of products from MAC lipsticks to the some pretty cool homeware goodness. I think my next purchase from Octer will be this gorgeous denim jacket which I've been eyeing up! I hope you enjoy this mini haul and I am sure there will be plenty of other purchases as far as this site is concerned.


Ariel Pop Vinyl

My first choice on the website when I found they sold Pop Vinyl's was this gorgeous one of Ariel! Lately I've taken to a new collection from Tsum Tsum's (as well as those too) and started on my very own pop collection after being inspired by Stacey and her HUGE collection. The lovely Ariel is the second in my collection and I went for her as she is my favourite Disney princess, with that gorgeous red hair. I love the Pop Vinyl although Ariel is considerably smaller than the lovely Sadness but I am assuming that is something to do with her tail.

Violetta MAC lipstick

Next is another collection of items I am in love with and that is MAC lipsticks, I've been collecting them for around two years now and I am more into the dark colours at the moment such as purple and blue so this is the perfect addition to my collection. It reminds me of Violetta but it's an amplified lipstick which just happens to be my favourite finish for MAC. I love that Octer works with House Of Fraser who stocks MAC. Big thumbs up from me. 

Kate Spade Note Pad

 The final item of my haul is a gorgeous note pad from Kate Spade, I've wanted something from Kate Spade for ages and nearly brought a bag from her collection in the states two years ago and didn't and I wish I had as I love all of her stuff. I've wanted to get some purchases from her homeware collection so I am happy that this was on the site. Although it's a little smaller than what I imagined I am love with and it's perfect for little notes on my desk.

I can't wait to shop on Octer again, and I hope it inspires you to check them out!

K.I.S.S.I.NG Bitch Perfect Charlotte Tilbury Review | Beauty

K.I.S.S.I.NG Bitch Perfect Charlotte Tilbury Review | Beauty


It's taken me a while but I finally joined the Charlotte Tilbury bloggers fan club, there wasn't a doubt about not loving a product from Charlotte Tilbury it was more of the best time to purchase one of the lipsticks, due to the seasons changing and also the amount of money they cost. So I eventually did it, and I am so happy I did as it is one of my staple lipsticks and I couldn't imagine not having it in my collection. Compared to what I usually buy it's a bit different, I tend to go for bright lipsticks such as pink and red or dark lipsticks like purple and black which is fine as it suits my style. The lipstick I purchased which is in the shade 'Bitch Perfect' is a light pink and it's quite glittery, and comes from the collection K.I.S.S.I.N.G and has some other amazing shades and I hopefully hope to get my hands on Night Crimson and Love Bite next as they look like fab shades. As far as the lipsticks go they are long lasting, and smell divine as well having amazing packaging which draws you in. The lipsticks from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range have a special ingredient in them which protects your lips from UV damage which is a super amazing thing to have in a lipstick. 

The lipstick is made of a creamy formula which in my opinion is similar to the MAC creamsheen ones which I have tried in the past as well as some L'oreal lipsticks. It is easy to apply which is always a bonus, and I enjoy the silky feeling which is left on your lips after use, I am in love with this collection and in particular this lipstick as it's a new girly shade for my collection. I am happy I finally took the step and treated myself to a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick and I can't wait to try other things from her collection as I've heard many great things.

Spring Fix Beauty Event!

Spring Fix Beauty Event!


A couple of weeks back I was invited to attend a Spring Fix Beauty event in the Birmingham Bullring, originally I was interested to know what this was about, I actually like Spring Cleaning because I have SO much stuff I definitely do NOT need so I was ready for this! As part of the event they were offering makeovers free of charge and they were also holding a Beauty Amnesty where if you gave up 5 pieces of old make-up you would get a £10 voucher for anywhere in the Bullring (Boots or Superdrug anyone?) which I think is fabulous! So I happily gave up some of my old lipsticks and a foundation! When I arrived I had my hair styled by an amazing Umberto Giannini stylist Called Rikki. I usually wear my hair straight or up, I don't remember the last time that I actually had it curled, I wasn't sure I would like it but it turns out I loved it and would definitely wear my hair like this again! 

After looking around and watching others get their make-up done I was presented with a voucher to spend in the Bullring in regards for attending and reviewing the day, at first I decided the sensible thing would be to buy some clothes, because I currently need some due to loosing weight and after a while of looking at clothes I didn't actually see anything that I fancied. So instead, I did what a beauty blogger does best and headed for Selfridges, and you've probably already guessed what I bought.. 3 MAC lipsticks. Que an eye roll from my boyfriend, but I decided I wanted them and I hardly have any reds/lighter shades in MAC lipsticks as I usually go for BRIGHT colours. I originally considered Morange but they had sold out *boo* I kept £15 of the voucher for when they get it back in stock because I thought it would be a perfect addiction to my collection. 

I had a really fabulous time at the Spring Fix Beauty Event, and it's a great way to get people involved in Spring cleaning! 


Check out my review of Chatterbox if you love MAC lipstick!

A little absence/Birthday Haul!

A little absence/Birthday Haul!


I'm back, some of may of noticed that I haven't posted a new post in almost a week, this may not be long for some people but as I try to post nearly everyday it feels like forever for me, I do have my reasons though! As it was my birthday on monday, I visited family over the weekend- with no wifi! Had a super busy day on my birthday organizing my room as I got new furniture woohoo, and then on tuesday night I went out on the town and couldn't even face to leave my bed yesterday (we've all done it right?) But here today I am back to get back into blogging properly as I haven't had chance just to sit and blog for weeks with Christmas and University deadlines! So on to the birthday haul, I'd just like to point I am not bragging in any way shape or form I am simply just showing you what I got and I was a very happy girlie with my lovely gifts!


What I received for my birthday:  
A lot of cupcake decorating gift sets, a naked basics palette, the soap and glory girl-o-whirl set, some mini perfumes, a nikon cool pix camera!, some body shop goodies, a mac lipstick and lipgloss, a new bed, no7 favourites, 19 scratch cards, Taylor Swift perfume and some nail varnish!

I was super excited when I opened these gifts, some of them I was pretty aware of already, like the bed and I had a little bit of a clue that my Uncle and Auntie were getting me MAC make-up and they picked the perfect coloured lip gloss and lipstick, I will be putting a full review up of them soon so look out for that, I am obsessed with making cupcakes and my boyfriend and his mum both bought me sets and cases to put all my cupcakes in my, I warn my uni class I will be plying them with cupcakes all year long! The naked basics pallette is something i've wanted for months but haven't got around to buying it and my other Auntie gave me money so I finally purchased it and the colours and fab, they go on so well and look great, and you guessed it, a review will be up on this soon also! The body shop lipsticks are something that I haven't tried before these ones and they're fantastic quality, so smooth, love love them. Finally the camera, I bought myself a little lighting studio for Christmas, but although my phone takes amazing quality pictures you can't get a tripod for it, so he bought me a camera! He is so lovely and I appreciate it so much!  

Hope you enjoyed reading my little haul, video will be up on youtube soon!

To be honest this week has been fairly boring pretty much the same as most of my other weeks, only exciting things were going out for drinks on Friday starting at 5pm, with two for one fishbowls, good deal though right? and heading to wales today despite the rain, I am onto my final few weeks at uni I cannot understand how I have almost completed my first year already, time flies hey? This week my cat also decided to be a meer cat and try scare the other cats in the garden and I also treated myself to a MAC lipstick in the shade chatterbox.  But as far as weeks go it's been a standard one and I am now on holiday from work for 7 days days *partaaaay!*

TAG: Blogger Firsts Beauty edition.

TAG: Blogger Firsts Beauty edition.


I have seen so many tags floating around during my time as a blogger and I am always a sucker for a good tag, I have been thinking about doing my own tag for a while now, I've wrote this tag and re wrote it about 100 times now, but I think it is finally good enough for people to want to do! This is blogger firsts only, else you'd probably be wracking your brain back quite a few years! If you do my tag I'd love it if you could link it back to me and feel free to use my image that I have made.



The first brand you found out about due to blogging? 
MUA, before blogging I barely bought any make-up I think I owned 1 of everything when I first heard about MUA after reading a blog post on them I rushed down to my nearest superdrug and invested in 5 £1 lipsticks, I mean £1 lipsticks how can you go wrong with that, I couldn't believe it!

The first youtube tutorial you watched and attempted? 
only recently started watching youtube tutorials before I thought I could never do my eye make-up as good as that! But after watching Ellen I finally faced my fears (you know what I mean) and took on some make-up tutorials and they are actually a lot easier than I thought!

The first high-end item you bought? 
A MAC lipstick, it took me a fair while though I kept seeing them pop up everywhere and thought may as well, and have never looked back. Definitely worth every penny in my eyes. 

The first product you regret buying? 
The baby lips, I bought these pretty much two weeks into blogging and I instantly regretted going out and buying all 5, I wish I had bought one then realized these are crap instead of buying the whole collection! 

The first product you repurchased? 
Soap and glory lipsticks, I had one of these pretty much as soon as I started blogging and then bought 3 more since, they are such good quality for the price tag! P.S. they smell gorgeous! 

The first product you reviewed on your blog? 
*Takes a look back at my blog* My first reviews were terrible I did review the Spray on Vaseline sprays, at least I was honest and I think it was the first time I realized how much I loved reviewing things and that was when I became totally hooked on blogging! 

The first product you bought due to a blogger review?
Baby lips again. I saw them everyone and went out and bought them and you know the rest, I regretted it instantly!


Do you still use any of your first blogger make-up purchases? 
I do actually, I still use the Kate Lipsticks and also the soap and glory ones as they are both amazing! To be fair my first blogging products were only bought about 7 months ago!

& I tag Lucy, Siobhan, Jess, Leah, Katie & all you other lovely bloggers and youtubers out there!

Halloween Wishlist!

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Mini Collection | Beauty


If you love your makeup and more importantly Urban Decay you'll probably be aware of the Gwen Stefani collection launch to Urban Decay, I am in love with all things Urban Decay and I couldn't wait to get my hands on part of this collection. Although I didn't purchase the palette because I have far too many already, and around the same time it came out I just got the Vice 4. I thought today I would share with some mini reviews and some thoughts on some of the collections latest releases including the lip liners which everyone is raving about. 


Lip Liners: 

The two shades of lip liner I got were 714 which is red one and Firebird which is the beautiful pink, and it has only been in the last when my lip liner obsession started, I never even knew how much of a difference to lipstick a good lip liner can make. The first thing I noticed when trying the lip pencils was how easily they glide on to the lips which is always a plus when applying lip liner as there is nothing worse than having to drag it across your lips *ouch!* The packaging itself is super eye catching and beautiful and my eyes were instantly drawn to the gold as it feels luxurious and better than your usual black lip liner. Both colours stayed put on my lips throughout the most part of the day and didn't really need topping up at all. The lip pencils are fab to go with the lipsticks in the same shades or you can wear them with any other lipstick, I know my a few MAC lipsticks which will go well with the lip liners.


First things first, how cute is the packaging for this Brow Box? I fell in love with it instantly and wanted to know what was inside this cuteness, when I opened it to find a super sweet brow kit, the top section is the colours for your brows along with a powder and the bottom section is made up of cute brushes and a pair of tweezers to keep your brows looking on point all day long. This is the perfect handbag friendly kit for any beauty lover especially those who are keen on good brows. I am in love with colours which are in this brow kit as they are a great match for my eyebrows but if you have darker ones it might not be for you. Each section of the box has a mini mirror so is perfect for those easy touch ups on the go. The box picture is in the shade in Bathwater Blonde




Overall I am feeling some serious love for this collection and next on my list is to get some of the beautiful lipsticks which are a part of this collection, possibly the ones to match my liners.
