I love this shot of Christina Hendricks with the popsicle stained lip look from Elle magazine. For March I've been mainly wearing my ultra bright blushes with a nude lip.
Clockwise from top left: Chanel Joues Contraste in Fleur de Lotus (to be reviewed soon, I forgot to write the post), Suqqu EX-04 lipstick, Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation in Nude, Suqqu EX-03 blush, Maybelline 24hr Tattoo in Tough as Taupe (who makes up these names?), Suqqu EX-02 blush, Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air, Avon Supershock Liner in Black (I bought them online for £3 each (?!) and they're fab!) and Nars sharpener.
I've been using gel eyeliner pencils to tightline my upper lash line for the past three months but I didn't have a proper eyeliner sharpener. I was using an ordinary Muji one which meant all my pencils were getting chewed up - you know, you turn the pencil a few times and then the 'lead' gets stuck on the blade, breaks off and you have to start all over again. Now I don't get that anymore with the Nars sharpener. It's a revelation (to me). And forget how magazines always advise you to stick the pencil in the freezer for a few minutes - didn't help at all for me - buy a proper sharpener!
March means it's spring time in London and no more dreary grey & cold days. But perhaps I was a bit too optimistic with my Zara purchases.
And now for the randomness. 20th March was Macaron Day and I picked up a box from Pierre Herme - what I paid was donated to the Ambitious about Autism charity. For that day only, PH sold all his past limited edition macarons...nom.
Louboutin pop up shop at Selfridges.
I picked up L'Eau de Chloe in time for spring as well. The original Chloe was a bit too sweet for my liking but I really love this fresher version (and I don't usually like 'commercial' department store perfume). The lady at the counter gave me a mini gift set which included the perfumed bubbles. Now I can dance around in a field blowing bubbles with wild abandonment too. (advert image from elle)
Dior Addict Extreme lipsticks have finally launched in London! I picked up two after a bad day at work (who am I kidding, I would have bought them regardless). Have't yet given in to the matching nail polishes.
Last but not least I've been spending a lot of my time in March on Draw Something - I think this picture (by my friend) is so adorable :)
