My 10 lippies for Autumn

These are 10 of my "go to" lippies that I will be wearing this Autumn

As you can see its quite Bourjois heavy, I have collected quite a few over the past few months with all the "3 for 2" offers that have been on.
Sorry for the bad lighting! the sun was in and out all time I was photographing, drove me potty!!! I will definitely have to sort something out lighting wise especially with the Winter looming.

Recent buys

Just a couple of things this week

NYX Butter gloss £7.00
I'm a NYX virgin! I'm so late on the bandwagon I know but I just wanted to see if they are worth all the hype that surrounds them. I got the shades Angel food cake and Praline

No7 Match Made Moisture Drench Lipstick  in Soft Cherry, this was my free choice from the "match made" range. We all love a good freebie!

Barry M Sunset Nail Paint Top Coat £4.99 I've been meaning to try this for a while the only thing is I haven't actually bought any of the polishes that are supposed to go with it. Has anyone tried it with any other polishes? or does it actually need that specific polish?

FOTD....... Autumn berry

This has been my make up for this weekend, really simple eyes and a bolder lip. This what I used.....

For face:-

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer not sure what shade as its completely worn off
Chanel Vitalumiere  my shade is 20 Clair
CC Eye Cream Correction  in light beige
Benefit Porefessional  this just lasts for absolutely ages

For cheeks: -

No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter 
Bourjois Aqua Blush  in berry nice
Sleek contour palette in light

For eyes:-

L'Oreal mega manga mascarra in black, I'm am obsessed with this mascara at the moment, not my usual style of brush but its just working wonders with my none existent eyelashes!!

Bourjois clubbing eyeliner in atomic black

For lips:-

Maybeline lip liner in velvet beige
Bourjois Rouge edition lipstick in Violine Strass

I really need to try and sort out my lighting when photographing FOTDs as my eyeshadow never actually shows up. I know I have very hooded eyes but trust me it is on there I don't wear loads as I don't want to draw that much attention to my eyes as I really do not like them, but it would be nice to see some of the shadow on the photos. Has anyone got any tips or advice???

  2. No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter £9.95 recent buy but so far have used it pretty much everyday
  3. Dorothy Perkins leggings I just love the colour of these leggings they are supposed to be "rose" but they are slightly more coral to my eye
  4. Barry M Nail polish in need for speed, this has been my go to polish this month mainly for the speed aspect, I will have to purchase a few more shades I think.
  5. The Strain TV series, rather weird and gory but slightly addictive

  7. Tesco stripe top £10.00  I have pretty much wore this to death this month (and probably last month!) It is so super comfy

Shopping fix

I slipped off my "no buying" wagon again last week. I have had a LOT of personal stuff going on just lately (hence the irregularity in my usual blog postings, I do apologise, yet again for this). This little shopping fix gave me a that little boost that I so desperately needed to pick me up, I know this must sound really pathetic to some but it helps me.......stupid I know!!!

Anyways here is what I purchased

Rimmel moisture renew lipstick £6.49
I got the shades 180 Vintage pink and 220 Heather shimmer

At the moment buy one get one half price in Boots

A couple of cheap items from Superdrug

Rimmel lip liner £2.99 in the shade 4 Indian pink

MUA Lip Liner £1.00 in the shade Caramel Nougat
