More l'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick swatches - 03 Lovely Rose, 501 Nude Ingenue

Afternoon people! I decided to pick up some more Rouge Caresse's. I like to have some sheer lipsticks in my arsenal and these are sheer without clinging to the lips or settling into liplines. The shades I have are 03 Lovely Rose, 501 Nude Ingenue, 07 Cheeky Magenta and 06 Aphrodite Scarlet. The latter two will have their own post purely because I don't want to bog this post down with too many pics! BTW, anyone know how they pick their number? 501 just seems so random haha.

Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism Collection Swatches - a few bits!

Evening!!! Today I have a few bits from Illamasqua's spring/summer collection, Human Fundamentalism. Illamasqua was the first beauty brand I properly fell in love with. I was captivated by their message of non-conformity and not being afraid to be more "out there". The pieces I have from this collection are Skin Base foundation in AU, eyeshadows in Burst and Pivot, the Neutral Palette and lipstick in Apocalips.

Rimmel Pro Peppermint swatches

I picked this polish up yesterday whilst shopping. I was immediately hooked! Rimmel Pro polishes contain 12ml whereas their standard polishes have just 8ml. There is a price difference though, I think these polishes are about £4-5.

MAC Chen Man Collection - A few bits! Lipglass, Lacquer and Glitter!

I suppose I could call this a haul...maybe...except I bought this stuff along with stuff from other newly released MAC collections haha. This is the Chan Man stuff. The products I have to show you are Force of Love lipglass, Breezy Blue Nail Lacquer and Reflects Glitter in Reflects Blue.

OPI Holland Collection swatches part 2!

Evening! I popped into Sally's last weekend and they had the Holland Collection in, so I figured I'd take a look over and see if there we're any polishes I'd missed. Yes, there were haha! I ended up picking up the mini set and another full-sized polish - Rolling In The Hague.

"Part One" is here Holland Collection Part One

Guerlain KissKissBaby Lip Balm in 261 Rosy Nude

Afternoon folks! I picked this up from Debenhams a few days ago, not too sure why really, I was just intrigued.

MAC Lasting Sensation and What Comes Naturally Lip Pencil Swatches

Good morning again!! These arrived a few days ago along with some other MAC stuff I've picked up. These pencils are from the Tour De Fabulous collection currently up on the MAC site. Tour De Fabulous was originally going to be Glamglass, a new type of gloss, but for whatever reason they had to scrap the new formula and so they made the shades into lipglass. I need to take a good look at the lipglasses and see if there are any shades I want. But for now I have two lip pencils; Lasting Sensation and What Comes Naturally.

OPI Significant Other Color swatches

Morning! =D Today I have OPI's Significant Other Colour to show you. What drew me to this is that it has a gorgeous lime duochrome to it. Totally suckered in.

China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise swatches

Yay, more brights!!! It's annoying me that on the label this has "neon" in's not neon :( Not what I would call neon anyways :(

China Glaze Rainbow swatches

Evening! Today I have China Glaze Rainbow to show you! Firstly I'll start by saying I'm quite confused by the name Rainbow...perhaps if it flashed different colours then yes, but it doesn't.

Revlon Grapefruit Fizz and Watermelon Fizz swatches

I picked these up from Boots at the weekend. They looked so freaking pretty! I've never really been a fan of the "these polishes smell like *insert something here*", it seems gimmicky, but honestly, these make me want to chew off my own hand.

Grapefruit Fizz

Nina Pro Purple-Xing swatches

I didn't want to put this polish in with the neons, it just didn't feel right =D.

Nina Pro Solar Flare, Orange Flame, Lime Light, Punki Pink, Punki Purple, neon polish swatches

Things are about to get awfully bright! I popped into Sally's a few days ago hunting down China Glaze's Electropop collection to see if there were any other polishes I wanted, but they didn't have it in yet. I was gazing over the other polishes and these pretty much smacked me straight in the face. These, to me, are pretty much the definition of neon (well, with one or two exceptions, but we'll talk about that later). These polishes are just under £4 and you get 15ml. Seriously can't complain there!

Punki Pink, Lime Light, Orange Flame
Punki Purple, Solar Flare

GOSH Nail Glitter in Rose Quartz, Jade Green, Blue Sapphire swatches

Hello again =D I really gotta kick my backside into gear with this blog, I have so many things I need to post up!

Boots 17 Blue Magnetized Polish swatches

Morning! Before I forget...If somebody knows the name or number of this polish I'd love to know! I've checked the bottle over and over again but can't find it. Scratch that, I checked the Boots site and it's called "blue" *rolls eyes*.

l'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipsticks review and swatches

So whilst out on Saturday I also came across these in Boots; Rouge Caresse Lipsticks from l'Oreal. They're a new product to me and I think they're fairly new to the market. At an immediate glance they reminded me of something like Chanel Rouge Coco Shine's or Dior Addict lipsticks; kind of lightweight, sheer glossy lippies. And that's pretty much what they are.

For swatches of 03 Lovely Rose and 501 Nude Ingenue click here. For 06 Aphrode Scarlet and 07 Cheeky Magenta click here

The shades I picked up were 01 Fashionista Pink, 202 Impulsive Fuschia and 301 Dating Coral.

Sleek MakeUp Blush By 3 Lace Palette Review and Swatches

Evening people! Popped into Superdrug on Saturday, hunting for polish as always, and I have a habit of always checking the Sleek display. I was hoping for a new eyeshadow palette, but instead noticed this along with four other blush palettes. I spent a few minutes trying to figure out which palette to pick up; there were testers there but they were sort of half sealed shut so you couldn't get the palette open to swatch the colours, let alone get a decent look at what they were like! I decided on the Lace palette. I'll be taking a good look at the other palettes and will probably pick them all up. It's just nice to have options :D

Deborah Lippmann Mermaids Dream swatches!

Today I received a tiny little box containing Lippmann's new Mermaids Dream polish. This is from the new spring collection. The collection has one other polish, a sort of light sky blue that I haven't picked up yet. Anyways...Mermaids Dream!!!
