Your Help Please :)

Hello ladies and gents!

Hope you are all well and are getting prepared for the holiday season - i have almost got my review stuff ready to post!
In the meantime, I was wondering if I could ask a favour?

My friend saw a scarf in H&M, which was long, cream with a print of a fox on it and all my stores have sold out :(
They are £10 each, so I was wondering if any of you had seen them in your local H&M's and if so, would you mind picking up 2 and I will reimburse all costs and obviously love you long time!

Pretty pretty pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee! :)

10-10-10 Giveaway

Hello!

To celebrate the fact that today is 10.10.10, I have decided to do a little giveaway once I reach 10 followers.
What is the prize?

One of my felt flower creations , from my brand DOLLYgirl Felt Designs.
The design will be a one off, especially for this giveaway, although here are a couple of examples to give you an idea:



Your design can be made in to a hair clip or brooch, which the winner will be able to specify and will also come with a felt button pouch to keep your prize safe.
To win, all you need to do is:

  • Be a follower of my blog
  • Leave a comment with an answer to the following question:

"What is your most favourite lipstick of all time?"
I am a lipstick fiend, so I decided that this would be a suitable question (mine is MAC Violetta, if you were wondering!)

The closing date is midnight on 17th October 2010, so I must have reached at least 10 followers by then for the giveaway to go ahead.

International entries are also welcome. 

The winner will be chosen at random, the details of which will be posted on this blog, asking the winner to email me directly.

If I do not hear from the winner within 7 days, another winner will be chosen instead.


Good Luck!

Inside my make up bag...........

Hello, 

Sorry for the lack of posts - have been so busy with work!
Today, I have some pics of my 'daily' make up bag (I have separate stuff for evening, going out, etc), as I always like a nosey post like this, so hopefully you will too!

 (You can see my yellow leopard print dress in the mirror hehe)

Close up

Face Products

17 Face Perfecting Foundation
Hard Candy Sheer Envy Face Primer (bought from USA)
Hard Candy Concealer Palette (this is amazing although sadly from USA also)
Bourjois Pressed Powder



Left to Right - FCUK palette, Sleek 'Circus Palette' and Sleek 'Acid' Palette

Inside the FCUK palette - not my usual colours, as I got this as a gift although have tried some colours out and they are quite pigmented

Inside the Sleek Circus Palette - these are super pigmented and last well when used with a primer (I use Urban Decay Primer potion with these and they last all day)

Inside the Sleek Acid Palette - look how well used the white shade is lol

Eye Stuff

The black pot is magenta glitter from the brand Beauty UK, which is available at Superdrug
The gold pen is Topshop Makeup Eye Crayon in 'Sun Shower'
Benefit Bad Gal Eyeliner
Benefit Eye Bright
Collection 2000 Kohl Eye Pencil in Black
Urban Decay Pencils in:
Lust (purple)
Electric (turquoise)
Lucky (bronze)


The 2 small silvery coloured eye pencils are both Hard Candy glitter eyeliners, one in teal and one in purple, both came as part of a set

The tiny black pencil next to it is my eyebrow pencil, which is Barbara Daly @ Tesco Eyebrow Pencil in 'Dark' - I clearly need a new one haha



 Another pic, showing the pink glitter pot colour




 Randoms

Benefit High Beam - I LOVE this!!
Hard Candy Walk the Line Liquid Eyeliner in 'Asphalt'
Topshop Makeup Cream Blush in 'Pinch'
Helix Pencil Sharpener (I use this as it has an option to sharpen slim and fat pencils)
Hard Candy Take Me Out Eye Liner Pencil in 'Ahi' - the is long lasting and the color is a fab lime





 Another pic to show the Topshop Makeup packaging


 Everyday MAC Stuff (I need to add my Venomous Villains stuff to this now!)

MAC Zoom Lash in Black
MAC Penultimate Eyeliner Rapid Black - this is like a felt tip pen
MAC Relects Glitter - this has a teal iredsecent sheen
MAC Amplified Cream Lipsticks in:

Morange
Neon Orange (PRO only)
Viva Glam Lady Gaga

I love the amplified cream finishes - they are my fave!




 MAC Morange - this looks very similar to Neon Orange in these pics but in real life neon orange has a slightly redder hue and is brighter




MAC Neon Orange



MAC Viva Glam Lady Gaga - this is a bright, bubblegum pink on me, although seems to look different every time on every person I have seen



If you need swatches, reviews or more info,  please ask.

I hope you have enjoyed looking in my makeup bag!

MAC Venomous Villains

Hello lovelies!

Just a quick post, as I have been so busy this week :(
My boyfriend kindly waited, refreshing the MAC website all day on Monday and bought me some MAC Venomous Villains stuff, some of which is now sold out.

He had some of the stuff in his basket before they even updated the home page, so he must have been one of the first to order - what a sweetie!
Anyway, it arrived today, so expect a post on this in the next few days!

What are your thoughts on this collection?

Hugs

Eyes of the Day!

Hello :)

Welcome to my first Eyes of the Day or EOTD!
I got home at like 9 o clock, having been out of the house since about 11:30am, so please don't judge my tired eyes and messy hair haha

(At least you know the eyeshadow has staying power though!)





(I promise you my eyebrows aren't wonky its just the weird angle i had to take the pictures at lol)



Another dodgy pic - maybe I should just leave now?!

OK, so I used:


Urban Decay Primer Potion on the whole lid
The black and yellow shadows from the Sleek Circus palette
MAC Zoom Lash in Black
Benefit Bad Gal Eyeliner pencil on lower inner lid
Benefit Eye Bright pencil as a highlight



Hope you enjoyed my first EOTD!

Hugs

Andrea Fulerton Nail Boutique Range

Hello :)

I'm a big fan of brightly coloured nail polish, so was intrugued when I saw this range.
The line consists of nail preparation products, nail colours, a 'trio colour layering system' nail art products and nail finishing products, so basically has all of your needs across one range.
Here are a few picks from each section:
Triple Action Undercoat - £4.99

Nail Colour in 'Emma' - £4.99

Trio Nail Polish in 'Flower Power' - £7.99
This is a double ended nail polish and you can layer them for a different effect, so 3 polishes in 1!
(I have included pics of all the swatches to give you an idea)
Stripe and Sparkle in 'Ann' - £4.99
A 2 in 1 bottle with a precision brush to create lots of different looks

Here are some of the looks you can achieve with this:


Gemstone Overcoat - £4.99
 Glitter Puff Dusts and Overcoat - £6.99, which can be used for nail tips, moons or all over your nail.

Nail Tattoo - £1.99 or currently free when you buy a selected product


There is a massive range, which is available here and everything seems range from £1.99 to £7.99, so very reasonable.

Also you currently get a free nail tattoo set with each selected purchases.

What do you guys think?

Will you be trying this range?

Winter Boots!

Hello!

With winter fast approaching, I have to put my heels aside for now and get some winter boots.
Here are my choices so far (all DM's!):

Dr Marten's 'Triumph' Floral boots
The same boot, with a different lining and in gunmetal grey

Dr Marten's 'Kiele' boots

 Dr Marten Sanrio Hello Kitty boots




Same as above although more expensive!


Which do you guys prefer?

I haven't had a pair of DM's before - has anyone else had them and recommend them?

Any other recommendations (I need to have quite roomy boots, as my legs are not the slimmest!)

Hugs

Dolly

Eyeko London Lips Lip Glosses

Hi guys, 

A late post as I can't sleep!
A brand I love is Eyeko, as they have that whole Japanese/kawaii vibe going on, that I totally love, even though they are a UK brand :)

They have just released a limited edition collection of glosses named 'London Lips', which are available in 3 sheer blends and 3 cream blends.

They all have cute names too!
My faves are:



These are priced at £6.50 each, which I think is reasonably priced.
If you click the link at the top of this blog, you will also receive a free gift with your order!

What do you guys think of these new glosses?
Hugs
