Recent Make Up Purchases




I recently bought 17's Lipstick in Hot Chilli and I love it! I wore it out on Saturday and it really brought my whole look up a notch. I wore very little eye make up and received quite a few compliments. As you can see from the above pictures, the colour comes out quite orange. I'm a red lipstick wearer and always will be however I definitely have a few nights planned with this little number. It's smooth on and it's very durable. I only had to re-apply it once during the whole night! If you're a pale lady who can pull of the brightness then I'd say go for it!



As a pale lady with blotchy skin and the odd spot, I'm always looking for something to keep my skin even-toned and to cover any oddities up. I've heard a lot about green concealer so had a little google and found Nicola Robert's Dainty Doll Green Concealer in 004 It's A Kind of Magic. I only got this today so haven't really had a chance to use it however from what I've sampled, I'm liking it so far. As you can see it goes on fairly light but once blended in gives a nice cover. 



I thought I'd go for a bit of glitz this week. I try and paint my nails a different colour every week and due to work being quite tough at the moment, I figured snazzy nails may cheer me up. I achieved this look using Nails Inc Motcomb Street and Fairy Dust from fairygoodies.co.uk. I painted the navy shade on, then did a clear coat, then another clear coat and subsequently sprinkled the fairy dust all over my nails. If you're going to purchase Fairy Dust, please note, glitter will go EVERYWHERE. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I've bought recently? Have you tried any of the above before? Have you bought anything recently that you're loving? Let me know in the comments below!
