MAC Cut a Caper

When I heard that Cut a Caper was coming back to MAC as part of the Heavenly Creatures collection (previously Tartan Tale) I knew I had to get it and be quick! Luckily I managed to get it at my Debenhams counter when it was released.
Cut a Caper is a lustre finish (my fab MAC lipstick range) with a lovely peach/coral tone that gives a nice gloss finish.
The finish us not as dark as the lipstick suggests, with it being a lustre finish the colour is softer and more sheer. Yet once on the lips you still get good colour pay off.
I love the finish and colour when applied it gorgeous and helps my lips to feel fab (I suffer with dry lips). It truly is a great shade and finish, it also lived up to the hype around it which doesn't normally happen.
Did you manage to get one?
This retailed at £14 but is now out of stock, you can try checking eBay for it.

Nail Art Nail Tattoo's

Today's post is on Nail Art Nail Tattoos, here's what they say about them;
'Containing 60 individual stickers, Nail Art Tattoos can be used as boldly or subtly as you like. Make a serious statement on every nail or mix it up by creating an accent nail on each hand to add another dimension to a straight manicure.'
How to apply:
  1. Ready...paint nails with polish of you choice.
  2. Set...wait fir polish to dry, then apply the nail art tattoo. Simply peel from backing and stick them to nails - no need for overzealous pressing, as these nail tattoos stick straight away.
  3. Go...go over with a top coat. Et voila!

Theseare certainly straight forward and easy to apply. I would certainly recommend a top coat as on my first go I didn't and I did knock it off. If you are not very creative at nail art like me this is a great idea.

You can get Nail Art Nail Tattoos for £5.99 from here link.

Topshop Lipstick in Secret Admirer

Today's post is on Topshop's lipstick in Secret Admirer which Topshop describe as a warm nude.
I'd say it's far more of a soft pink that is a muted tone. The formula is very smooth and nourishing, applies great.
It's certainly a colour that would appeal to a lot if people, but for me is a tad too pale and flat of a colour. So far I have only been happy if I have out a gloss over the top.
This is another good item from Topshop but it's just not something I would re-purchase as it just doesn't suit me. You can see our other Topshop posts here.
Topshop lipsticks retail at £8.00.

O.P.I Autumn Winter Nails

I adore Autumn Winter nail colours and I love when the new collections are launched. O.P.I has two fantastic collection out this year.
First up is the OPI Skyfall Collection dedicated to the 50th Anniversary of Bond 007 films. All colors of this collection are named after James Bond movie titles. I love the look of them all except Die another die and The spy who loved me (not much of a red fan).
Next up is Germany Collection by OPI, inspired by what fashion editors are calling "Europe’s hottest new fashion metropolis," the Germany Collection by OPI embraces the classical elegance as well as the avant-garde that is modern Berlin. Again I love all but the red and Schnapps Out of it!
The Germany collection is out now and I think the James Bond collection is out October with the new Bind film Skyfall out November.
What do you think? Which shades do you like?

It's a's a its Supergirl

I'll start off by saying I love Pinterest but so far I hadn't made anything I'd seen on there. On the weekend just gone my little girl had been invited to a Superhero party. I decided to order some bits off eBay but they didn't arrive in time so I took to Pinterest to find some ideas....luckily I did alright!
With some material, felt, wunderweb and Pinterest I came up with the below.
I even made the Hubby a mask so we could have a Daddy and Daughter combo.
For the cape and logo I used Puking Pastilles and for the mask I used Living Locurto.

2nd Wedding Anniversary

Today's is my 2nd Wedding Anniversary! I can't believe it's been 2 years (though we've been together for 11years anyway!). Below are some of my pics from the day.

My colour theme was purple with a bit of hot pink but I also had a sweet theme as you can see below with my homemade table numbers and sweet centrepieces.
My cake also followed the theme.
I am going to enjoying a nice evening in with my hubby (we didn't sort out a babysitter).

NOTD L'Oreal Parisian Rooftops

Today's post is a review on a new nail polish I picked up from Boots. It is from the new Colour Riche nails which is L'Oreal first long lasting mini nail collection, the shade I got was Parisian Rooftops. The collection contains 41 gel based colours designed by L'Oreal Paris' Colour Creative Director Orrea Light. The choice of shades is great, the cost £4.99 for 5ml bottle which I do think is expensive.

Parisian Rooftops is a taupe grey shade with a slight purple undertone. I like the colour against my skin tone, it's far more grey toned than a lot of the the grurplewhich I prefer.

I would love to own all the shades, they may not be the best ever polish but for some reason I am really drawn to them and I love them. You can see swatches if my other shades here.

The swatch above was with 2 coats applied and you can see it gives a great opaque finish. Application is lovely and easy due to the fat fat brush (my favourite type of brush to apply nail polish). Though the consistency can be a little runny so just watch out!

What do you think? Overall I like this nail polish though its a tad expensive and I would certainly look at more shades. Have you tried them? Do you have a fave shade?
