Today was an odd day. I woke up at 5.30 after going to sleep at 1.30 to do a carboot sale with my bro.. It then started to pour down with rain! UGH.. Lucky for us we turned the car around and drove back home! I was so tired I planned to go back to sleep. Then my mum woke up and told me herself and my 2 aunts were going into Oxford St. The fact they were driving and gona park in Selfridges carpark totally had me sold.. I literally jumped in the car! We spent ages looking around.. I was so desperate to buy something but HONESTLY.. there was absolutely NOTHING! Or maybe i just wasn't in a shopping frame of mind. I did however have the most amazing mini cupcakes from Lola's. Diet was totally out of the window, we got a box of the minis and I tried Oreo, Red velvet and Peanut butter [I know what a fatty!]. They were SOOO AMAZING, diddy but majorly calorific I am sure. [Hence this evening went and worked them off at my aunts gym!] I bought this cute box for my little cousins birthday party tomorrow.
As we were driving back my mum and my aunt were playing around with the handful of MAC lipsticks I had in my bag. They both decided they wanted one.. My mum liked 'Faux' and my aunty liked 'Ravishing'. At this point we were at Holborn and they literally kicked me out of the car and sent me to MAC Covent Garden store. Whilst there I decided I needed something.. DUH.
I opted for Shy Girl lipstick, which I have been wanting for a while. This also looks fab on my lovely Tali.. and we often like the same things so I had to pick this one up! It's a cremesheen so has that lovely creamy, smooth texture. To me it's a lighter version of 'Ravishing' or 'Jazzed' [From in the Groove collection] it's in the Coral family, I am loving coral lipsticks so very much and have been all summer. I think I will do a post on a few of my favourite coral lipsticks - It's a must!! Shy Girl has a nice amount of sparkle to it without looking too metalic if you know what I mean.
I also picked up a blush in 'Gingerly' My girl in Orlando was wearing it on iChat the other day and I had to have it. We are such bad influences on one another! Apparently this is a favourite of Kim Kardashian, when I bought Melba the MUA told me the reason she bought it was because KIM K was wearing it. So as soon as Melba was mine, I thoroughly enjoyed! I hope it will be the same with Gingerly.. I didn't even swatch it properly because my lot were waiting in the car for me.. I love that Gingerly is another matte blush. I sometimes prefer that because it's a lot easier to control the shimmer to your liking with the addition of highlighters/MSFs etc. It's hard to see the colour in my swatch [Apologies] but is again similar to Melba and Peaches. I might have to do another coral/peach blush post with swatches.
How was everyones Saturday? Let me know ladies if you would like me to go ahead and do a coral/peac lipstick/blush post. What have you ladies bought this week? What are you current favourite colours?
