This nail polish is totally worthy of a post to itself, so here goes:
Have any glitter polishes caught your eye recently?

Lips: Estee Lauder lipstick- Crystal baby.
Ok so this nail varnish is really sheer and took a whopping 5 coats to build up to the colour in the picture, but I actually don't mind that. Considering the amazing effect the nail varnish gives and the drugstore pricetag, I don't mind putting in a little more effort for such pretty nails!

I'm sure you've already seen some reviews but I can't quite contain my excitement at my very first Glossybox and had to do a post.
I'm also VERY excited for the March box, I've seen some sneek peeks of it and it's a very special looking collaboration box with Harrods! (so expect to see a post on that when it arrives)
The Becca beach tint is exciting because I hear alot about these products through blogging but can't get hold of Becca easily myself. I have included a swatch at the end of the post. What I noticed is it blends in really nicely to the skin and becomes a subtle stain like consistency.

So for those of you in the UK waiting for the lipstick to be released, here's a sneak peak:
Viva Glam Nicki & Ricky billboard at Times Square
The lipstick is a satin finish which means it is slightly drying and you need moisturised lips. The Mac website describes the shade as a yellow-pink which is fairly accurate but I would say it has a touch of coral to it. Possibly comparible to Mac Impassioned.
Bit of a naff swatch, but I suppose I should include one.
The lipstick looks alot more muted and wearable on than it looks in the tube, the colour you see in the tube is quite scarey.
Overall I think this lipstick is a great buy if you are a fan of bright, unusual colours. There were a couple of darker skinned Mac ladies wearing it in store and it looked gorgeous on them so I think this lipstick would suit darker skintones well.
What do you think? Will you be buying Viva glam Nicki?

So today procrastination has hit an all time low and I found myself applying false lashes on top of my normal makeup to avoid reading. The result looks surprisingly natural and is a look that would actually allow me to wear lashes in the day.
Here is the look:
I think I went a little mad when I decided to apply lashes, seeing as I'm not even going out of the house today (well I am going to see The muppets movie tonight..werhey!) but seeing how natural they look with my makeup has made me consider wearing lashes for daytime special occasions.
Face: Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer, Mac Style blush, Mac Hush cream colour base
Eyes: Mac brow pencil-spiked, Too faced shadow insurance, Benefit creaseless cream shadow-skinny jeans, Mac Satin taupe e/s, Loreal Carbon gloss super liner, Soap and glory smoulder kohl (smudged into outer lower lash line), Tarte lights camera lashes mascara, No7 40 intense volume lashes.
Thanks for reading! I am going to New York for a week on Monday so will hopefully be back soon with a New York haul post :)

Recently (well the last two nights out I've been on- and I shall be wearing them again tonight) I have been absolutly loving Boots No7 false lashes. If you havn't tried them before then now is a great time to try them out because boots are giving out the £5 No7 vouchers meaning you can pick up the lashes for just £2.50. I have taken full advantage of this deal and have picked up two pairs already and am going back today for another two!
The lashes Im wearing in these pictures are Number 30 exceptional definition (I should point out that this was my second wear of them and they were still in excellent condition) and I have also bought Number 40 Intense volume.
So here is the makeup look:
Face: Estee Lauder double wear foundation- shell, Bobbi brown corrector- porcelain bisque (under eyes), Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer- 1 fair (under eyes), Too faced chocolate bronzer, Tarte Amazonian clay blush- blissful, Stila Kitten highlighter.
