''Mac Red'' and 17 ''Pink Ice''

HEY FOLKS! THIS POST IS ALL ABOUT LIPS! I havn't got much red lipstick, I'm quite scared of it frankly. However I think it's one of those things you can actually layer with glosses and make a bit more subtle, so I went and purchased Mac Red, a favourtie with blondes like me apparently ;) One of my faaaavourite lipglosses which I've been obsessed with over the years is Boots 17 lipgloss in ''Pink Ice''. My boyfriend used to tell me off for carrying it around the house with me all the time haha. It's a beautiful pale pink with blue undertones (check me out, getting all technical!) and I just love it. The following swatches are a bit rubbish because they were taken in the evening under crappy lights but it gives you the idea.

Excuse my HIDEOUS teeth, they're wonky because I was naughty and slacked with my retainer after having braces, quite shameful really. Worth mentioning that in certain lights this lipstick actually comes up slightly pinkish, but in a good way.

Idol Lash Review

I'VE BEEN DEBATING WHETHER TO buy an eyelash enhancing serum for a while now as I was put off by some reviews claiming they had experienced all kinds of scary side effects, such as eye colour changes, darkening around the eye, irritation, maybe death...(sure, not death but you get the point). However the idea of fluttering lashes seemed too good to resist so I took to the internet in search of a less harsh serum, hence discovering Idol Lash. Nobody has complained about side effects and it seems very safe to use so I bought it on Amazon for £35 (standard price for this product).
