Hello my lovelies! Hope you're all enjoying the lovely weather at the moment, although I'm home in Luxembourg I hear it's just as gorgeously warm back in the UK! I spent a few hours revising in our garden desperately trying to tan my pale legs for my cousin's wedding next week, but it got too hot! Too hot! In April!
Anyway, I got some lovely make-up goodies for my birthday that I'm quite excited about, I love them all already! I bought the Charles Worthington spray for myself with my Advantage Card points, I shall review it at a later date but the smell is divine, just like being in a salon! The lovely Stephie (best friend and future sister-in-law) and her boyfriend got me my very first MAC concealer (I don't know how I've lived without it) and my beloved Chanel Inimitable Intense, as you can see on the far left and right respectively. The concealer is amazing, it covers my dark circles so well, I'd definitely recommend it to anyone with under-eye bags like mine! Stephie also pointed out that it costs the same as the one she usually gets from Boots No7, so from now on she's going to buy MAC as well. I can't believe that mere months ago I owned nothing from MAC and now I have four products, amaze! As for Chanel...well I raved about it in one of my very first reviews on here, and nearly a year on nothing has changed, it's still my number one mascara!
I also got my first cream blusher from my friend Geo, as whenever we go into Topshop I end up swatching all the blushers but could never justify buying one when I still have heaps to use up first. Geo picked the blogger favourite Neon Rose and I can honestly say that it is beautiful! The staying power isn't the same as my cheek tints, obviously, but I may try layering the two to see what kind of effect it has! Thumbs up for the gorgeous packaging as well!
Finally, my gift from my sister Nats, the gorgeous "Impassioned"...it is so beautiful, the most gorgeous colour and it's perfect for spring! It's now my go-to colour for bright bold lips. I've coveted it ever since seeing it on the lovely Muhsine at Bubblegarm and I'm so happy Naty bought it for me!
I took some snaps of me wearing all the items above, no foundation because it is simply too hot, and I let my hair dry naturally again because I can't face the hairdryer at the moment...
I tried to get some lip swatches of "Impassioned" but found it difficult to photograph and haven't quite captured the colour. If you're interested I do urge you to look at Muhsine's post, her photographs are stunning and show the colour more accurately!
Phew, sorry for the ramble, thank you for reading as always and I wish you all a gloriously happy Easter in the sunshine!
