Models Own & Wah Nails - Smash Up Polish Release!

Hello lovelies!

Now, I am a massive fan of the Barry M Instant Nail effects 'shatter' polish, so was super excited to see a similar release from another 'high street' brand:
This is Model's Own up coming collaboration with Wah Nails, aptly named 'Smash Up', which seems to give the same effect as the Barry M one but with a lot more colour choice.

Excited, non?!
These will be available exclusively in Boots from April 20th (black and silver only) and there will be a full launch on the Models Own site sometime in April, so watch out for that.

The silver may be a dupe for OPI's upcoming silver shatter polish, as part of their Pirates of the Caribbean range.

The price will be £6, which I think is quite affordable (not for me though, as I will be buying all of them haha)
What do you guys think?

Will you be purchasing?

MAC Disappointment..........and Success!

Hi guys!

Having sold some stuff on Ebay, I decided to treat myself to something from the MAC Wonderwoman collection, so decided to opt for the Amazon Princess blush.
The day came when the little black box was delivered - cue excitement when opening the package until i saw this:

Hmm, looks quite dusty, right?
Well, this is why:
The blush was totally destroyed - I was both upset and furious, as at £21, this was by no means a cheap product.

So, my partner called them and they offered to send another free of charge and advised I can keep this one.
So, today, another black box arrived and look what was inside:

I was so reluctant when opening this but was pleased when i opened the compact:
Although I was really disappointed and upset at first, I am impressed that MAC managed to sort this out in the space of 2 working days for me.
However, after this error and a previous error when ordering some of the Marcel Wanders collection from the site, I am very reluctant to use the site again (although the service was excellent when I ordered the Venomous Villians collection from there).

Also, do you guys have any ideas on what to do with the broken compact?
I was thinking of crushing it up and using it as one powder blush and then cleaning up the compact and using that as a mirror?

What do you guys think?
Do you have any other ideas and also, what are your experiences with using MAC online?

USA Swapsies!

Hello ladies!

I absolutely love anything to do with the US, in particular their amazing beauty products!
Is there anyone out there who would like to participate in a UK/USA swap?

It doesn't have to be a large amount, just a swap of a few drugstore brands each way.

Please let me know :)


Please be mine!


I dont know about you but I am itching for this baby to be released:
This is the Givenchy Le Prismissime Yeux from their Summer 2011 Acid Summer range.

9 bright summery shades in a hot little limited edition package? 
Yes please!!

I CANNOT wait for this one :)

Also, whilst I'm ton the subject, having this would also be nice:
Vernis, Please! Nail Lacquer in 'Acid Orange'

What are your thoughts on this?





MAC Quite Cute Collection Spring 2011

Hi guys, 

Sorry for the lack of posts lately - I have had some personal stuff going o, but hopefully can get back to some regular posting now.

So, what do you guys think of this upcoming collection - I nearly squealed when I saw it - this collection is so me and definitely at the top of my list!

The promo imagery is very similar to those that Illamasqua release and I feel more effort has gone in to creating an overall look, rather than various shots of one particular product:

The  release date is April 2011 (both USA and Europe) and details are as follows:
