I love MAC lip pencils, and I don't really know why. Let me think... they apply easily and are long lasting, and MAC has an huge array of available shades - compared to most brands! I admit that I own quite a few now, and here are the ones which I have recently acquired: Redd, In Synch and Test Pattern. In this post, I will be comparing them to some of my other ones: Brick, Life's a Breeze and Oak!

I got this nail polish from Ciate called Dangerous Affair as a freebie from this month's Marie Claire magazine, and I just love it. It's a deep dark pinky red, which reminds me a lot of MAC's So Scarlet lipstick. The formula of the nail polish itself is amazing - so easy to apply and dries really quickly. The cute packaging is a bonus too! I'm so happy I picked this up. Keep reading for more photos and nail swatches~ ♥

If this Marie Claire issue is still available in your area, I recommend you pick this magazine up! The nail varnish is perfect for the fall~ ! ♥

I have finally acquired the coveted Illamasqua blush in Lover. It has long been sold out in the Illamasqua site and their store in Selfridges! It is a gorgeous peach that is not too pale or not too dark. Like most Illamasqua blushes, Lover is well-pigmented. It is a matte blush so it is pretty wearable for all ages and all occasions. In this post, I have compared this blush to Illamasqua Excite and MAC Hipness. Keep reading for more photos, reviews, and comparison swatches! ♥

Hi everyone! I have gotten hold of these products from the MAC Venomous Villains collection that I have been contemplating purchasing before. This review will be about beauty powders in Briar Rose and Oh So Fair, and Dark Deed lipstick. I will also be comparing Dark Deed lipstick to Kittenish from the Fabulous Felines collection! I'm loving all these products so far!

Hello everyone! MAC UK hosted their first ever blogger event last night, and I'm so lucky and so happy to have been one of the few invited. I had so much fun! Thank you staff at MAC UK!
