Purple Glitter Smokey Eye

MAC came out with a new formulation of eye shadows called Dazzleshadows last year. Most of them sold out within minutes but I managed to get Cant Stop Don’t Stop which is  gorgeous cranberry/purple colour.  When I first used these eyeshadows I wasn’t that impressed I was expecting some serious colour and glitter. The best way I have found to apply them is with a damp brush and then press them into the lid.

To create this eye look I used

Too Faced Semi Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette shade Peanut Butter (my ride or die shade for all looks)

MAC Swiss Chocolate to deepen.

MAC DAZZLE SHADOW in Cant Stop Don’t Stop on the lid.

I used the Maybelline Gel liner to hide my lash band. Lashes were Ardell Demi Whispies!

What do you think of this look? Its a little different from my usual warm toned smokey eyes.

L’Oreal Colour Privee in Cheryl

I stumbled across this new collection in Boots when I was browsing and I just couldn’t put it down.  The idea is that each nude lipstick is matched to a iconic celebrity so that you will find it easier to find the perfect nude for your skin tone or do as I did and go bananas because it has Cheryl on it.

The formula is quite sheer which I like because I never look in a mirror when I am applying lipstick, they aren’t very pigmented but I never think nude shades are, it is meant to enhance your natural lip colour. This colour really suits my skin- tone. A my lips but better shade.

The only downside of this lipstick is the scent, Why must my lips smell, nobody is going to smell my lips trust me! The scent is really over powerful. It’s not un-pleasant but I just prefer no smell.

Mani Mondays #3 Navy Blues

For today’s mani monday I a wearing Rimmel Kate Moss Salon Pro with Lycra nail polish in Rhythm and Blues.  

Apart from burgundy this is also my all time favourite shade. With all the hype going around about Essie After school Boy blazer. I rekindled my love for Rhythm and Blues.

I think they are a pretty good dupe for each other.  Whats on your nails this week? Is it sad that I am already planning next weeks shade.
