Ben Nye Media Pro NK-1 Conceal All Wheel Concealer - Review, Photos & Swatches


"Concealers fit in the palm of your hand in compact four-color Wheel. All are now formulated in the MediaPRO formula for a flawless natural finish that needs little powder." - Ben Nye.

Ben Nye Media Pro NK-1 Conceal All Wheel Concealer is a professional and quality concealer used by makeup artists. I decided to give this concealer a go after falling in love with the Ben Nye Powders which I reviewed here

What I immediately loved about this concealer was it's coverage in one swipe. Over the last few weeks I've had a chance to test out the colours and use them for neutralizing, concealing and highlighting purposes.

MAC Ravishing Lipstick - Review, Photos & Swatches


'Ravishing' is a permanent lipstick at MAC with a 'Cremesheen' formula. Cremesheen is one of my favorite finishes they aren't too sheer yet pigmented enough to give medium coverage, they are also moisturising and creamy. 'Ravishing' is described as a 'Clean Light Peachy Coral'. 

I've wanted 'Ravishing' in what seems like forever!

MAC RiRi Woo Lipstick - Review, Photos & Swatches


"Limited-edition shade of RiRi Woo, a vivid cool red with matte finish created by Rihanna." - MAC

The release of RiRi Woo Lipstick was one intense release if I say so myself! I would have ignored it if it wasn't for the hype surrounding it! The anticipation of it's shade, texture, packaging and of course being a Rihanna creative release had everyone wondering and so my curiosity got the better of me! I'd rather have one than lose out! 

There was some sort of queue system where you had to select it and wait without refreshing, pressing the back browser button or closing your window and just wait......wait.....wait....until you got a successful page refresh telling you RiRi Woo Lipstick was added your basket! My God it was an intense wait I had my iPhone trying to bag one and my laptop too!

Within a couple of hours it was sold out, being a online exclusive launch I suddenly had to have one! If I'm totally honest the story behind it being a revived up Ruby Woo Lipstick had my ears standing because Ruby Woo is my all time favorite lipstick. I wasn't actually to bothered about it being a Rihanna collaboration.

RiRi Woo is described as a 'Matte Cool Red' with a 'Retro Matte Finish'.

Take A MINT...Blazer with you


A very quick outfit post today! I have so many errands to run so I just slipped on my reliable black chiffon dress, skinny jeans and the highlight of my outfit is this Mint coloured blazer. It was quite chilly outside and I kind of wished I had a thicker jacket! I'll only be pulling this blazer out again once the weather warms up and there's a need for a light jacket - I don't think or feel it's hot enough yet!

Outfit:
Black Chiffon Dress - Karen Millen
Skinny Jeans - Zara
Mint Blazer - Bershka
Pointed Vamp Leopard Shoes - Zara
Bag - Louis Vuitton Multicolor Alma

I'm totally in love with the colour Mint - it's one of my favorites and I can't wait to wear it this summer!!!

MAC In Extra Dimension: Extra Dimension Skinfinish in 'Double Definition' - Review, Photos & Swatches


"A liquid-powder highlighter with prismatic reflections that sculpts, highlights and models the face. The cool, creamy near-fluid formula creates a luminous, well-defined finish. Wears 10 hours." - MAC.

Another Extra Dimension Collection this year with a twist to the Skinfinishes. You can see last years collection here - and you will notice that the twist to the skinfinishes is that they are combined with two different colours this time rather than just the one.

I picked only one Skinfinish from this years collection which stood out the most to me: 'Double Defnition'.

MAC Fashion Sets: Silly Lip Pencil - Review, Photos & Swatches


"Bold brights with a modern edge in four coordinated sets featuring our favourite textures and finishes. The powerful purple of Heroine, the playful pink of Silly, the red-hot scarlet of Ablaze and the full-on fuchsia of Embrace Me - each available in Lipstick, Lipglass, Nail Lacquer and Eye Shadow." MAC.

Silly Lip Pencil is part of the Fashion Sets Collection 'Silly' set. It is described as a 'bright pink', but when swatched I found it to be a more toned down pink lip pencil. It's not a hot pink but more of a brighter baby pink with a cream colour, in some lights it even looks neon.

The powerful purple of Heroine, the playful pink of Silly, the red-hot scarlet of Ablaze and the full-on fuchsia of Embrace Me - each available in Lipstick, Lipglass, Nail Lacquer and Eye Shadow." MAC.

In the month of May there have been about four collection releases one of which is the Fashion Sets, Ablaze is a new colour introduced in this collection. A definite staple for Spring/Summer! I picked up the Lipstick and Lip Pencil and the colour for both is named as 'Ablaze' and is described as a 'bright apricot cream'. I think this is more of a coral/orange with pink tones.

MAC.

In the month of May there have been about four collection releases one of which is the Fashion Sets, Heroine lipstick is re-promote from a previous collection and every MAC addict regardless of liking the colour purple has to have the beauty Heroine! 

So even I after seeing the rave and rants about the re-release of Heroine decided I was going to get my paws on one too. And oh my what a fight it was to get one!
