Beauty Wishlist

So I recently blew all my money on clothes.. Now I kinda regret it because there are a few beauty products I have wanted to purchase/repurchase for AGES now and havent had a chance.

These include

1. Benefit's High Beam - I just can't find a good highlighter as good as this. Any suggestions?

2. Benefit's Sugarbomb I think I must be the only person NOT to own this.

3. Soap and Glory Body Butter Smell it and fall in love!

4. MAC's new Ombre Blushes WANT WANT WANT!

5. MAC lipstick in Creme Cup/Shy Girl There is just something about Cremesheens!!

6. Benefit's Realness of Concealness Kit - Its €33 and TINY.. But still! So adorable!

7. MAC Pro Palettes Is the only place to purchase these online?!?

I'll report back in a few weeks and let you know if I actually bothered my bum to get these long sought after products! :) x

Face of the Day: Bare Eye and Shocking Pink Lips using only 3 Products

Ok so I've decided Im going to do these posts along with fashion posts from now on. Experimenting with makeup is just in a girls nature!
Today's look is comprised of a natural, bare eye, and the focal point being the pink lips. Ive only used 3 products for this look, and they are all drugstore products :)

Here's the overall look:

With Flash:

A closeup of the lip...

And the eye!

So I only used 3 products to achieve this look. Lipstick, Lip Balm and Mascara.
The lipstick is a Maybelline Lipstick in 'Hollywood Red', but is a deep/hot pink though!

The lip balm is trusty old Vaseline! The aloe vera Vaseline is shiny and moisurising too!

And the Mascara.. I used Max Factors Fake Lash :

Military Style?

So a major trend for Spring is Military. Again.
Ive had enough of Military style!Wasn't it in season not so long ago? Or am I just getting old that i've lost all sense of time?
Military colours, military patterns, military detailing. I find it to be a boring, dull trend. Am I wrong?
I don't believe that the colour "khaki" as it is so called, flatters any woman. Am I wrong there too?
Ok, ok, im overreacting. Some detailing is cute. yes cute!

These Kurt Geigers are one of the only exceptions of military style in my book.
Along with colourful military jackets. Red maybe. Or is that too Cirque du Soleil? Circus freak more like.

Vogue is telling me to ditch my beloved leather biker and opt for a khaki flak jacket.. Am I really that devoted to fashion that i'l be forced into wearing a trend that in my mind is more of a faux pas than fashion forward?

Im not ready to let go of my leather jacket just yet.
