It's getting so cold now! After a wierd start to Autumn, it looks like Autumn has bypassed and we've sprung straight into winter! Not going to complain, I love winter. It has to be my favourtie season of all time. Hense my little christmassy title there ^^.  Here are a few products Ive been using LOADS recently, daily most of them.
Also I'm going to Liverpool on Saturday (22nd October) with my two bestfriends doing some shopping so I'll do a post of what I got from there. I'm hoping to go into the MAC store, because living in Chester, all I have is a MAC counter in Debenhams so it'll be a change going into a store! Anyway, here are my 'Faves' atm:

Illamasqua Lipstick - Scandal

Sleek Blush - Suede
MAC Paint Pot - Bare Study.

HD Brows kit.
NO 7. Stay Pefect E/S - Truffle.

MAC Mineralise Skin Finishes  - Gold Dipost & Crystal Pink.
MAC Lipstick - Shy Girl

So this is what I've been loving recently. Not loads  I know, but I'm easily pleased.
P.s Thank you to all of my 13 followers for following, I know my blog isn't one of the best, but I'm hoping you'll all stick with me :)

There is no business like 'showbiz' ..


I was mooching round Boots on Monday,  looking for a Red lipstick that wouldn't look too orangey, not too much to ask for surely! How wrong was I.. Every single shade I looked at looked horrible when I swatched it, NOTHING could please me. I never usually look at the '17' stand, but I was desperate, so I did.. and WOW. There it was, the shade I'd been lusting after. It's called 'Showbiz' & it's in the lasting fix range. I adore it. It's more of a dark pinky red, it reminds me alot of Mac's Russian Red but abit more pinky. I love it so much & it was only £4.29! BARGAIN, well comparing to Mac's £13.50 it's a pretty good difference in price if you ask me.

The lipstick itself.
REALLY bad picture of me wearing the lipstick. Taken on webcam, so crappy lighting and my nose looks huge.

That's all really, I just wanted to show how much I love this lipstick, deffo a new fave!

Love luce, xoxox
