FOTD: Green With Envy

Please excuse the really bad photos. I took a tonne but these were the only ones that actually showed the glitter properly.

HOW PRETTY IS THIS GLITTER!??!?!?!?!?

The glitter is: Darling Girl - Green With Envy (Pixie Sprinkles)

The lip colour is: Darling Girl - Pinky Swear (Colour Shifting Liquid Kisses)




I also forgot to do my brows before taking these pictures. But the products were just too pretty not to share :P

This is my "I'm going to see Dream Theater at Wembley Arena tonight" face.

Shiro Meowth & Everything Is Bears on eyes.
Darling Girl Cosmetics Planet X Holo Gloss on lips (review coming ;))





The weird dark patch on my chin in the second photo is a shadow - not bad editing haha (I don't even have any editing software anyway....only MS Paint....which I am a bit of a wizard with ;))

I would also like to point out that I haven't dyed my hair in nearly 4 months now and it is still almost the exact same colour as when I first did it!

Considering the fact that before I switched dyes I was doing it at least once a month (and still it was looking pretty awful by about halfway through the month) I am extremely impressed by the staying power of my Directions Turquoise + Fluorescent Glow mixture!

Secret Kisses Lipstick Review & Swatches


I heard of this company through Jerry over at Silhouette Screams. I am a sucker for an unusual lipstick so I decided to give it a shot.

A little while back they had all of their lipsticks reduced to $10.50 (about £6.60 each) from $14.99 (£9.50). When I placed my order I didn't get a confirmation through - but by the time I realised that my order probably hadn't been placed the sale had already ended :( booo.

I emailed their customer service team and told them what had happened, and they kindly sent me a discount code that allowed me to purchase them for the sale price :)

They got to me in less than a week....and the shipping was FREE (worldwide!) I was impressed before I had even opened the box!!







The colours I got were Rockstar (purple) and Sunshine (yellow).

The colour swatches on the website sort of suggested that Sunshine was going to be brighter, and more matte. In person this actually has quite a sheen to it and is borderline gold on the lips.




Sunshine is quite a hard lipstick to pull off. Especially if your lips are dry (like mine :(). I do actually quite like the colour and I think with a bit of work I could probably get away with wearing this out.....but only if my lips were in better condition.

Rockstar.....

I don't know what to say. I love this lipstick so much. I have always been a big fan of purple lips but I have never found a PROPER purple like this. I bought MACs violetta a while back thinking that it was going to look like this and it was pretty much just pink :( I was a disappointed lady!

This lipstick is easy to wear, it feels nice on, it doesn't have a scent really which is fine by me, and it lasts for ages. Today I ate my lunch and had a coffee halfway through the day, didn't reapply, and it was still fine by mid afternoon.

I didn't wear a lipliner and it didn't feather at all! I just don't have enough good things to say about it really. Here are some pictures:





I included the last picture to show that unlike other purples, it doesn't actually make my teeth look yellow! Which is another bonus :D


So yeah, all in all I am extremely impressed with this company. They are having a 2 day Valentines sale starting tomorrow which is why I wanted to get this up a.s.a.p so that you guys can take advantage of it :)

I really want to grab the green next. I hope it is a good match for my hair! (which I haven't dyed since about November :| bad Lisa! I plan to do it next week!)

Question Time: Big feathery eyelashes

A couple of weeks ago I went into town with the full intention of buying socks.....but I somehow managed to come home with these instead:




They are very beautiful and I would really like to wear them, but I just don't really know how :( I have never used feather lashes before and I need suggestions as to what I should do eye shadow wise to make these babies work.

Any ideas?

It took 6 attempts to get this to upload to YouTube!!!

A lot of people have been asking about my skin routine so I thought I would make a video :) I hope it helps some people!

It was my first time making a video....be nice ;)



Feel free to ask any questions! I'm sure I have probably missed something out!

Green and White and Sparkles!

Ok, that was a terrible blog post title. I'm not feeling especially imaginative!

This is one from a couple of weeks back that I forgot to post. I took the pictures on my phone so they aren't great :( sorry.

I have been wearing this look a LOT recently. It is really simple to do but very in your face!



I really don't know why the pictures are so yellow :( sorry!

I really need to get my hair cut. I have been kirby gripping back my hair for the past 6 months! Going to the hairdressers to get my fringe cut back in because quite frankly, this.....


....is not the look I want to be going for.
