Bobbi browns latest colection

Bobbi Brown Beach 2010

I have already tried these products and I have swatches I just have a huge backlog of posts to do in front of this.

These are all super shimmery cream eyeshadows but its actually glitter
The color is sheer
only 1 is a full bodied colour and is matte

Swatches and full review coming soon . . . .

I never would have guessed it but . . .

OPI have collaborated with SHREK!

I did tweet just a few days ago (from user raspcherry) to say that I have heard that this will happen. And, today it has.

I think the Blues, and purples bright and pastel shades are gorgeous and the green shrek colour remids me of my MAC sweet and punchy eyeshadow from MAC to the beach collection, feel free to do a search for my look of the day based on and named after this shadow.

A sneak peak at some of my OPI collection

OPI is a salon brand I think its an American brand originally but its in almost every country that retails high end cosmetics
I have been using OPI for years now.
I think each bottle retails for £10 - £11

I think the best way to describe OPI nail lacquer (never call it a polish or varnish or Lena White the owner/founder will slap your hand) as being very similar to MAC Eyeshadows or Lipsticks
Available in a huge assortment of colours, finishes and consistencies and new limited edition collections every season

If you dont know what colours are on trend you can safely follow the OPI collections

OPI also collaborate with various 3rd parties similar to MAC to provide special limited edition collections.

Previous collaborations include
-Legally blonde
-Alice in wonderland
-Breast cancer care

I think theres a shrek collection coming up soon -lol

Review: Lancome Hypnose Drama, Le crayon khol, Bi facil, Art liner

I have used both Lancomes Hypnose and Hypnose drama
Both are great
The difference between the two are subtle when it comes to effect but the drama has a huge brush
I only like mascaras that give length and volume
the whole point in me wearing mascara is to enhance my lashes
I dont care if I look like I have mascara on just that my lashes look huge
I have sensitive eyes and This mascara is non agitating
I can use this from root to tip and not have a problem
even the wand is a good size and shape that really lets you comfortably apply your mascara
The actual tube is shaped to get a comfortable hold using either hand
it is abit pricey but if you are looking for a high volume none agitating mascara from a luxury brand then try this one and let me know your thoughts

The picture also shows Bi-facil eye makeup remover which is a bi or dual phase makeup remover for the eyes. Which is an award wining eye makeup remover.
It really has stood the test of time, and has had many brands follow this formula
-again pricey 0but if you are looking for a eye makeup remover from a higher brand I give you the thumbs up

Lancome le crayon Khol
This is a really good eyeliner one of the few that I recommend
and one of the very few that I can use on my inner rim without agitation
You can get a good precise line with this, or smudge it for a smokey effect its pretty long lasting and does not need a scourer to take it off

Lancome Art liner
I have been using Lancome artliner for years now
these are a felt tipped liqud eyeliner
probably not best for beginners
the felt tip is smooth and are great to get a medium line and my famous signature flick
I usually get both black and brown -The brown has a gorgeous bronze shimmer
the Loreal liquid liner is an affordable dupe of this

Fantastic fashion goodies

I was just shopping in town
and had to pop into the new Select store that has just opened
as I used to shop there in my teens
(when I was skinny back in the days - aahhh the memories)

I picked up a pair of jeggings to wear with my summer dresses, long tees and Kurta tops or kaftans
A gorgeous gold bag that reminds me of my Louis Vuitton speedy 25 that is now too small for me as I have to carry alot of toddler things though I can down size but I dont want to spoil my bag with baby foods and toiletries etc
I actually bought this bag to take to my trip to Southall as there are alot of pick pocket-ers and I dont want any of my expensive bags spoilt or damaged

Sorry -I didnt realise the pic of these earrings came out so bad :(

2 of my favorite semi precious stones are Rose quartz and Turquoise
although these are cheap fashion earrings they go very nicely with my semi precious jewellery

I am also a huge fan of big earrings

and also a fan of hoop earrings

I like both earrings equally -do you have a favourite?

MAC to the beach beauty buys

MAC to the beach collection , haul and thoughts and bits that have snuck in from other collections

Sweet and punchy
Free to be -liberty of london


Im such a baby I play with my makeup more than I use it
but you have to admit it looks pretty!

here you can see the limited edition packaging from both Mac to the beach and Mac liberty of london

The world famous Mac bag

From the above picture
I have 1 powder bronze
1 cream bronze
1 lustre drops
and I already have both brushes
the 130 is my fave foundation brush
and the 131 is what I use for my Chanel bronze universal
I didnt get the body oil -though I tried it in my hair -but it wasnt all that I prefer more natural hair oils such as nuxe all over oil which is available in plain and bronze shimmer

the Cream bronzer is in the orange packaging with a clear lid
and the powder bronzer is in the green packaging with a covered lid
the lustre drops in sun rush are a pretty peach gold shade and can be used in many different ways and are more travel friendly than my Chanel illuminator
The paintpot is a party crasher called coral crepe from the pret a papier collection

I pictured the bottoms not because Im a perve but so that you can see the details of the above mentioned products

I got these items online from the pro store

Im not a big fan of the colours chosen for the packaging they could have been prettier but they stand out and are easier to reach out to

I did not go for the pencils as they are not eligible for back to mac and I already have lots of liners for both lips and eyes

The beaauty powder is gimmicky as the sea horse is spryed on and its matte below and beauty powders last a long long long long time as you can use them forever and barely make a dent.

I bought both blushes in hipness an amazing coral and get away bronze a dark brown

I love the splashing gloss which is a perfect pink with gold pearls

I didnt like the green avacado nail polish it reminds me of the wicked witch of the west from the wizard of oz
the other coral shade one was gorgeous and is the same as OPI -your such a kabuki queen
I have featured it in a previous post

I bought 3 of the eye shaodws -I already have humid

I did like the lipsticks but I have too many the prettiest are the lustre light pink and also the bronze toned one -which Im still tempted to get

Sweet and punchy look from mac to the beach

MAC to the beach
Sweet and punchy look

Face and lip Products used

Clinique even better foundation vfg 04 cream chamois
Clinique all about eyes concealer 02
Mac to the beach lustre drops as highlighter
Mac to the beach cream bronzer on cheeks and as contour
Mac to the beach blush in hipness
Mac liberty of london lipstick in hipness
Mac dazzleglass in smile :)

Eye products used

Mac brow pencil in stud
Mac shadow brun in brows
Mac prep and prime eye primer
Mac paintpot in soft ochre
Mac gorgeous gold -inner corner and above crease
Mac sweet and punchy -all over lid and lower lash line
Mac Humid -outer corner upper and lower lashline
Bobbi brown green gel liner Ivy shimmer -upper lashline
Urban decay liner in covet -inner lower eye rim
Mac zoom lash mascara -upper and lower lashes

I really like this look not only are corals and green a hot look for summer but the colours have been used in a way that is subtle and easily wearable without looking gareish
I was able to wear this look easily on a normal day

FYI- If you have gorgeous gold you do not need sweet and punchy as the effect of the two are so similar on the eyes. as you can see you cannot tell where gorgeous gold ends and sweet and punchy starts I promise you its not just because Im good at blending my colours!
