A lovely reader requested that I do a lip swatch of MAC Thrills lipstick. What I have is Thrills from the original release (not the recent To The Beach collection), hence its not in special packaging - but the product  itself is still the same!

MAC Thrills is a rose colour with a gold frost, so overall it looks coral to me. I find that it is a darker and more pigmented version of the coveted Lollipop Loving lipstick.


What do you think? Would you wear this? ♥

You've probably seen a lot of TopShop makeup reviews already, and this is one to add to them! I bought these a few weeks ago, but only have time to blog about this now. My school year's finally finished! Projects done and handed in. I'm so happy :) I guess I have a lot of posts to catch up on. But anyway, moving back on topic...

I was really impressed by the quality of Topshop's makeup. And when I was at the store, I actually felt a similarity of these to MAC products! Their blushes were cream-to-powder finishes like the limited edition MAC in Lillyland blushes, their lipglosses were really sticky but with a slight vanilla scent, they had mineralized eyeshadows that were so beautiful and pigmented. I loved the quality. I just wished they had a bigger range of colours! ♥

So I got two products... a crayon in Sun Shower and a highlighter in Sun Beam. Keep reading for reviews, photos and swatches! :)

I'm sure you all have seen it in the different blogs. MAC has finally confirmed a Disney villain-themed collection, due to come out this September. I just watched the trailer/sneak peek here.

Based on the video, it seems this collection will include the following Disney villains:

Cruella de Vil
From 101 Dalmatians, she is the ultimate fashionista villain!


the Queen
Snow White's step-mother

Dr. Facilier

Based on this list, I'm looking forward to The Queen and Cruella de Vil -inspired products the most. I'm curious as to how they will incorporate Maleficent and Dr. Facilier though. Voodoo-inspired packaging anyone? :)

What do you think? ♥

Hi everyone! Here's a look featuring some products I got from  the MAC To The Beach collection.

It's such a pretty colour - I hope you agree! Well as usual, products I used and more photos after the jump! ♥

ViVi Magazine June 2010 and MAC Pret-A-Papier Collection

Hey guys! This is a massive post. My friend and I walked around London last week (I know, super late post!). She brought me to the lovely Borough Market - my first time there, and I loved it. We also dropped by Covent Garden, which was beautiful as always. I took a lot of photos of our trip that I can share with you after the jump! I also bought a few jewellery pieces from Accessorize, which I'll share with you, along with my makeup and outfit of that day ♥
