(Sleek Makeup Haul.)

I popped into Superdrug yesterday with the intention of picking up Majestic, a True Colour Lipstick by Sleek, after spotting it on Kaushal's Blog! I instantly fell in love with the colour and thought, why not! 

I was nearly thrown off when I didn't find any more on the shelves...So I kindly asked a shop assistant to have a look for it for me. She opened up the storage drawer and I was soo happy when she handed me the last one they had in stock! In the drawer, two items I'd never seen before stared up at me...they turned out to be the new LE Palettes Good Girl and Bad Girl (Not out until tomorrow apparently). I opened them up to find an array of beautiful colours. I had to have them.

I also picked up some blushes, Sahara and two new shimmer blushes Sunrise and Pomegranite!

My unhealthy obsession for cosmetics continues...

My little 8 year old brother Nathaniel took these photos of me. He wants me to stay, but I have to go. Back to University that is.

I wanted to share with you guys my new Zara buys..a lovely bow detailed tan blouse and a pair of tailored shorts. I wore them with a pair of tights and velvet ankle boots, and accessorised with my feather earrings.
Hope you like!

I spent yesterday with my sister Kezia and her Friend Reniece. They came up to visit Notts, and we shopped and toured the city, and later enjoyed a lovely lunch at Nando's. It was so much fun, Kezia cracked pointless jokes as usual and it was just awesome to be in her company again.

I wore a pair of peg leg trousers and a striped top, paired it with some brown brogues and whipped out my Parka, the one that's been sitting in my wardrobe, just waiting for the perfect day...
I accesorised with a few rings and bracelets and wore my Satchel too!

It's a very autumny outfit, one that I like very much.

What do you think? :)

The M·A·C Venomous Villains Collection...Swatches.

Sinister

Sinister is a lustre lipstick from the Evil Queen Collection. It applies on quite sheer and I think it's better used with a lip liner and a gloss on top, rather than on it's own, however it is a lovely shade and seeing as plum lips are trending, it'll be great for some of us that don't want to go all out with a deeper plum!

I LOVE this Mascara!
Here I applied two coats.
Easy application, doesn't clump, and makes my lashes look a bit more volumised. I also really like the formula, it's not too thick and not too fluid, just in between! I've been using it everyday since I got it! :)

The M·A·C Venomous Villains Collection...Event.

I realise i'm soo late with this post, but as you all already know, I've been living without the Interweb for a while, but everything is up and running now so YAY for new posts! :D

Two Thursday's ago a party of Beauty Bloggers and I made our way down to the M·A·C Store in Kensington, to attend a preview of the new Venomous Villains collection, a collection created in collaboration with Disney that was inspired by the iconic villains portrayed in some of our all time favourite Disney epics…Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmations, Snow White’s Evil Queen, Sleeping Beauty’s Malefecent and my favourite, Dr Facilier, the Voodoo guy from The Princess and The Frog.

We were greeted with lovely Cocktails and Cupcakes, and shortly after there was a talk about the collection and a demonstration by Senior MAC Artist Debbie Finnegan followed. She created an amazing Cruella De Vil Look on the model, which inspired some of us (Sammi & I) to get puckered up with some red lipstick!

We later got to play around with the collection, and there were a few products that stuck out to me; the “De-Vil” eye shadow, which is like a burnt orange shadow and a red lipglass called “Wicked Ways”, as well as some already in their permanent line; Smolder, Blacktrack and Carbon (these I own) that where re-promoted.

I was kindly sent away with a sample of Sinister, a lustre Plum lipstick, and Zoom Fast Black Lash, a mascara that I’ve been meaning to try out (I'll be publishing swatches and a mini review shortly)!

Just want to say a great big thank you to M·A·C for organising and inviting me to the event! :)

Did any thing catch your eye from the collection? Any purchases? Thoughts?

Hey guys!

Just a quick post to let you know I've moved into my new place in Nottingham, redecorated it and such and will be "Touring" it for you lovely lot soon.

I'm currently in London to sort out a few things that needed my immediate attention, and also to attend the MAC Cosmetics event (Of which I did Last Night, and will be posting about soon)!

The internet in the new place will be up and running next week, so regular posting and filming shall resume then!
