obsession? or Collection?

Just before Christmas my best friend Gayle was expressing her shopping woes when it came to my present. Know my love for Barry M she wanted to get me some but was scared as she didn't know what I already had! So she asked me to blog my collection for future reference. 

CRINGE!!!

Dare I reveal the entirety of my obsession? Because, lets face it, I can pretty it up by saying I'm collecting but I'm plain ole obsessed and everyone knows it!
A few weeks ago just ater I made my shelves

Here we have my nail art Gems, stickers, fimo slices & various topcoats & nail care treatments.
The bottom shelve is currently holding my Models Own Nail Art pens, a buffer, my deoderant (good to know I wear it eh?) & my perfume (Black XS... Yummy!) but given that I'm having to double up on the upper shelves I doubt it will stay this empty for long!


So there it is, a close up of my ever expanding "collection". Or at least the ones I have with me in Belfast. I have more in storage & sneaky order from Cult Nails (treatments rather than new colours as much as it pained me not to indulge) on the way.
I think I need help. Any NPAA* groups in belfast?

*Nail Polish Addicts Anonymous.
**No this not a real OPI, for starters the real That's Berry Darling is pink! Its was cheap off eBay & was the only polish on there that was the exact shade of Yellow that I wanted (candycorn yellow is surprisingly hard to find at halloween). It's actually quite a good polish if you ignore the fact that it's fake.

Battle of the pale bronzers: Benefit Hoola Lite vs Wet 'n Wild Reserve Your Cabana

Have I ever mentioned to you that I am pale?  Well of course I havementioned many times over the history of Faeriwood that I've been pigmentally challenged my whole life and - despite flirting with tanning every now and again -  I wholly embrace the pale. I have, however, always been a bronzing queen when it comes to my makeup. Whether I am using cream products or powders I always have felt healthier with a bit of a glow but I hate the orangey-ness of most bronzing products! It’s a catch-22 when deciding which one is more important.  For years I have been loyal to two products. Nars Multiple for a cream face (read here why I don’t believe in the term contouring for chubby cheeks) and Benefit Hoola for a powder face. Both are quite dark so they are used often but sparingly. This is why I was delighted when two new products designed for pale skin came on to the market.

Reserve Your Cabana is the best budget beauty bronzer for pale skin. Key word…

The Ordinary by The Abnormal Beauty Company (or how I dipped my toe in to Deciem)

The Ordinary by the Abnormal Beauty Company; If you haven't heard about this cult brand yet then you might not know they are hot shit right now and with their parent company, Deciem, being bought up by Estée Lauder they're only going to get bigger.   The internet has been a buzz for months now with beauty gurus far and wide raving about these high end products for low end prices. I couldn't believe it myself when I saw that there wasn't a product in the range that cost more than 8.00 quid! 

So I joined the cult. I have to say that I was really impressed by the counter staff in House Of Fraser Belfast, they were friendly, knowledgeable and able to point me in the direction of the products I needed with just a short chat about my skin. I bought the Hyaluronic Acid 2% and the Niacinimide 10% Serums. If you have no idea what these mean then basically the Hyaluronic is for hydration and, whilst The Ordinary say that Niacinimide combats blemishes, I would actually say that the…

5 Autumn/Winter must have shades from Sleek Lip VIP

For a while Sleek Cosmetics have been the ones to beat for quality products with great pigmentation at great prices. Other brands may hit one or two of these points but in my opinion Sleek consistently hits them all. 
In the past I've been a fan of their Pout Paint and their Matte Me lip laquers but oddly enough I've never dipped in to their actual lipsticks! More fool me. 
I received this set of Sleek Lip VIP semi matte lipsticks at the Sleek Blogger Brunch I attended a few weeks ago (here's where I plug my snapchat again) those of watching my @Faeribex snaps will have seen what a fab day it was.  

First impressions are positive. The colours are bang on trend for the upcoming Autumn/Winter seasons and there's a nice mix of girly, vampy, vintage and just plain gorgeous.  They apply feeling creamy and set to that semi matte finish slightly paler than when first applied.  For a full days wear I reapplied 3 or 4 times. Mealtimes will definitely do damage but I've yet to fi…
