rimmel kate moss lasting finish matte lipstick - 101

Hi everyone!

Just a quick post from me today, as mentioned in my last post I'm still getting settled in to the new house. But today I want to share with you a new lipstick. This was a little leaving present from my sister.

Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 101. 
I posted about shade 107 here and mentioned how impressed I was with the formula, and this shade is no different. It's so matte that it's drying, and feels nice and creamy on the lips.

As for the shade, this is obviously a lot more wearable than the berry shade I already own. It's just really easy to put on with any makeup look, a fairly neutral pink that isn't too pale or too bright, it's great for everyday just to add a little colour without being too much, with the little bit of baby pink that comes through.

Overall I am really glad I have this in my collection now. Although it might be considered quite 'standard', I don't actually own anything like it, so I'm sure it's going to get plenty of use! And for £5.49, it's a great buy!

Would you recommend any of the other shades in this range?

glitter nails

Hi everyone!

This week is a little bit special. Almost 2 and a half years after buying our first house, we finally move in to it this weekend! In celebration, I decided to pain my nails as inappropriately as possible, meaning LOTS of glitter.

I used W7 Moondust with W7 Multi Dazzle on my ring finger - 2 coats of each polish. This isn't really a review post, but I have to say that Moondust dries SO fast. It's probably the fastest drying polish I've ever used. I'm assuming it's because its more glitter particles than liquid, but it made for a super speedy application. I actually did these nails about an hour/half an hour before bedtime, and I got ready for bed with no problems whatsoever. Yay!

So, now I have nails that are totally fit for the role of packing, unpacking, decorating and so on. We all know they'll be an absolute nightmare to remove too. But for now, they're making me smile :)

So that's all from me for now. I'll see you on the other side! I'm sure these nails will be a total mess by then...

real techniques powder brush

Hi everyone!

Today I wanted to quickly share with you a brush that I've been using every day for pretty much as long as I've owned it - a long time! This is the Real Techniques Powder Brush. I've posted previously - here - about the core collection of brushes, and wanted to expand my collection. I'm glad I did...

I don't really have too much to actually say about this brush, I just wanted to share my love for it. I use it for what it's meant for - powder. Once I've done the rest of my base, I use the brush to set everything in place and mattify my skin. The brush does the job perfectly, and I've never needed to try anything else. As always with Real Techniques brushes, the quality is great and the bristles are super soft, even after multiple washes and daily use for what must be well over a year by now. Like I said, I don't have many comments other than this is a great powder brush and I highly recommend it!

Have you tried this brush?

pink & glitter!

Hi everyone!

I was on my lunch break, catching up on blogs when I got to Cristina's post - here. I loved the way the colours looked, my nails were in need of a re-do, I felt inspired and then this happened...

Pink & Glitter Nails

It's nowhere near immaculate as Cristina's, and I'm sure it will be ruined pretty soon, but I love the combination of colours, and it's giving a bit of cheer to my day when the sky has gone back to it's cloudy self. And in the meantime, There is a mist of glittery goodness on my desk!

The pink is Barry M Grapefruit, and the glitter is one I picked up in Spain, in a Chinese supermarket for €0.75. Bargain!

Hope you liked!
