Quick Review: M&S Autograph Lipstick in Mulberry


The lovely girls people over at M&S have been working their magic again and have come up with a few ideas for this Autumns hottest colour: Purple. And with purple being my favourite colour to wear make-up wise I jumped at the chance to sample their wears. The following 2 posts are my view on the subject.

DESIGN: Simple, sleek packaging in standard black. The bullet is shaped to provide maximum contact with your lips. Nothing strange or startling from packaging but who wants strange or startling from  lipstick? The little coloured stripe you see on the left is actually a sticker which carries on to the lid so when shopping you'll be instantly able to tell if you're lifting an unused product! (NB: How annoying is it when other shoppers don't use the testers provided? So Annoying!)

USE: This is an Ultimate Shine lipstick so as you would expect its quite glossy, but not overly opaque. It takes quite a bit of build up to achieve the colour I have above but once its on it feels great! Is it just me that finds it hard to stop rubbing your lips together when they feel yummy & smooth? It took a lot not to do that with this but in the science of testing I resisted. As with most high shine lipsticks its not the most long lasting and wouldn't survive a decent feed (tried and tested theory right here lol) but that really doesn't detract from wanting to wear it.

apologies for bareface lol
VERDICT: I was a bit surprised that this was sent under the guise of "Purple is the hot colour this season" because it's quite obviously not purple in any way. Its a voluptuous Red on application and makes no apologies for this. I uploaded a quick Instagram when trying it out as I felt "proper sexy" sitting in my jammies after work trying make up on (we are Generation Over-share after all aren't we?) and got an extremely positive reaction with exclamations of "ooh what is this?!" Always a good sign in my book.
I definitely feel the need to check out other colours in the Autograph range & at £8.50 I only feel a little bit guilty doing so.



*This Sample was sent for review but all thoughts are my own*

My Homage To The Gods Of WAH

Hello boys & girls! And welcome new followers. Michelle & I are very excited to share our thoughts with you.
Ok, cheesy bit over with, it's been a while since I've done a proper NOTD post, I was very conscious that I was being too nail heavy so have avoided writing about my recent weird/disastrous creations. But I have to mention my current talons because I've had so much feedback on them from friends & colleagues.  First up, these are not my design, those in the know will recognise them from WAH NAILS.
[edit] I forgot to mention that I saw a post from Little Red Fox where she did a much closer take on the design which inspired me to have a go! Maybe this could be the start of a Nail Meme? [/edit] My interpretation is loose as I didn't have the colours to just straight copy them. Secondly, this was my first ever attempt at leopard print nails so its a bit dodgy I apologise. My favourite nail is my left thumb as you see below (apologies for the dodgy photography…

Something a bit lacey.

I've FINALLY got round to trying out these Nail Rock wraps. I've had them for months but it's just one of those things I've been putting off for ages.
They are really pretty and amazingly easy to put on, with the help of a hairdryer and a bobby pin!
The only downside of these are I can see them peeling a little at some of the edges already, but I type all day in work so it's understandable. Though a mani for me can usualy tough it through a week under the same circumstances.
Pretty, no? x

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! So here goes...






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?

**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…
