Infinity ring

My infinity ring came this morning and i love it, its so tiny and delicate!
*here is the link if you want to have a look*

As you may already know, i love the meaning of the symbol (see infinity necklace post), so when laura from buynowbloglater posted about this ring i desperately wanted it. Then last thursday i was in a lesson (oops) when i saw Shannon's post on her blog thebeautyforte. It looked so beautiful, so i ordered it that minute and i am so glad i did. 

I am really pleased with my first experience of ordering something on etsy. Laura was lovely and after we discussed what size i should get, she made the ring to measure, which makes the ring feel really special! I decided after talking with Shannon that i would order it in a size to fit my ring finger, rather than on my knuckle, because i was too worried i would lose it, but i do still want one for my knuckle, maybe in gold or rose gold.

what do you think? have you ordered one?

L'Oreal Cheryl Cole Lipstick 297

I am not going to lie, even if this lipstick had been green, I was going to buy it regardless. Ever since I heard that Cheryl was going to be producing a lipstick with L’oreal for her charity, I have wanted to purchase it. I like Chezza, I enjoy L’oreal make-up products and I LOVE charities.

I am always on the hunt to find the perfect red, as I really struggle to find one that doesn’t make me look washed out or have yellow teeth. I do think with red lipstick, fake tannage is key.

I have to say I was ever so slightly skeptical to purchase this, when I swatched it on my arm in boots, because this isn’t a subtle red at all, but I bought it anyway and I have to say am pleasantly surprised.

I tried it earlier with no fake tan and it doesn’t look bad with my natural skin tone at all! It also must have a hint of blue in the colour concoction, as it makes my teeth look super white.

It is quite shiny, which I don’t mind because I have dry lips but the only down side is that they L’oreal have not produced a lip pencil to match the lipstick shade, which is a problem as it does bleed quite badly.

All in all, I like it a lot and I vow to wear it next time I go out on the town, ‘cos I’m worth it wye aye man’.

MAC Naturally Collection

The other day I was on a spending ban, but then I spotted the new MAC Naturally collection. So yeah, I died and went to make-up heaven. I am such a sucker for anything that is labelled as ‘natual looking’ make-up, that is why I love the Urban Decay Naked Palette so much!!!

So, I was reasonable and although I wanted EVERYTHING, I purchased the three things that I thought I would die without. Subtle.

I purchased two lipsticks, ‘A Perfect Day’ and ‘Sweet Sunrise’. First off, I LOVE the names of these products. I know that’s so sad, but I do. Without a doubt, my favourite is Perfect Day and if it wasn’t completely sold out I would go and buy another two for back ups.

I also bought ‘Twilight Falls’ (CUTE NAME!) which is a mineralize eye shadow, I have never owned a mineralize e/s before so I was quite excited and it hasn’t disappointed me at all, it is a beautiful taupe colour and looks lovely on its own or mixed with All That Glitters from MAC’s main eye shadow collection.

I wish I could buy the blonde MSF and the other lipsticks, but c’est la vie, I am just glad I  got what I did.

Did you get anything from the Naturally Collection?
