Very Pink LOTD (and moar brushez!)

My fiance is amazing for giving me more creative ideas, but not so much when it comes to my everyday make-up. Sitting in front of my mirror, I asked him what I should put on this morning, and he replied: 'Errr.... pink?'

So I had to wear my Viva Glam Gaga. What a pity!

Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk
MAC Gesso
Palest shade from Sleek Bohemian (under brow)
Barry M Dazzle Dusts in No 58 Candy, Candy Floss and LED1 Neon Pink
Lancome Hypnose Mascara

Gaga ooh la la

Revlon ColorStay in Buff (or something)
Lily Lolo Mineral Bronzer in South Beach
MEMEME Beat the Blues Highlighter in Sunbeam
Mac 219
Some POS flat shader brush from Superdrug
Elf Studio Powder Brush
MAC 187

Speaking of my lovely fiance:

This is us Christmas Day 2008 :) <3

Anywayanyway. My mum got me like, £100 of vouchers for my birthday, so I ordered loads of stuff! Annoyingly, they've all be coming through in seperate packages. I got Lancome Hypnose two days ago, a Lily Lolo bronzer yesterday (which I love - its like a dark peach, a perfect colour for me as I am *not* a St Tropez-tan kind of girl, I just like to not look dead sometimes - I said sometimes, Makeup Zombie) and two brushes today! And I have three other parcels at the bloody post office! SEND THEM ALL AT ONCE!

This is the Bare Escentuals precision liner brush. I don't know why I bought it as I don't own any gel eyeliners, but I just wanted it. The handle is really short, shorter than my index finger. I'm pretty gangly of finger but it's short! Anyway, the bristles are super stiff, I can't wait to use it!

And thats the Kent Contour Blush brush. I ordered a few brushes from Kent and I'm really excited to use them. Kent makes fancy hair and shaving brushes ('By appointment to the Queen' sort of thing) and it seems that make-up brushes are a new venture for them. I was really hoping to get thier Socket Defining brush, which looks like fat MAC 219 today, but I'll have to wait till tomorrow. Stupid postman.

Love and impatient kisses,

  1. I like doing the occasional bright pink look, makes you feel girly and princess-ey (is that a word? Don't think so.)

    You totally rock Gesso more than I could, I returned it! lol

  2. It does make you feel princess-y! And that should be a word. I'm a bit meh about Gesso, but its the best matte white I've found or can buy. Or you know, can afford. Sadly all the NYX websites I can afford the shipping on never have any matte white, because I've heard good things.

  3. =/ I have the matte white from NYX and Gesso is better tbh, I get 0 color payoff with the NYX one.

  4. Why do they send it in different packages? isn't that time consuming for them ? :p

  5. My boyfriend reckons its some sort of tax dodge?!

  6. The pink looks really good on you...I just can't seem to rock pink...I always looks sick!

  7. The pinks in your eye look are gorgeous! And you could use that BE brush for applying colour to the lower lashline :)
