MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick

Sunday, 20 October 2013

If you've seen my UK Haul video you'll know one of the things I picked up was Candy Yum Yum by MAC. I got this as part of the back to mac scheme when I took my empties back and was glad to find they had it in stock. On a side expensive are MAC lipsticks these days?!

Anyway, so when I got round to trying this baby out there was no surprise that I was going to have neon pink barbie lips. Normally I wouldn't of went for such a bright pink but I have to admit it goes rather well with my skin tone and I'm just a little bit in love with the shade.

The lipstick is really pigmented, so much so that I still had a little bit of staining the next day which I don't think I've experience before with a lipstick.

Like most MAC lipsticks, the application was easy, although I would recommend using a lip brush for such bright colours so you get a perfect outline as the tiniest smudge becomes very visible. The formula was also moisturising. The colour pay off is so good, you'd probably only need 1 touch up (if that) on a night out, this lipstick is not moving from you lips!

All in all, I think this is my new favourite bright lipstick at the moment and if you've been thinking about buy it you should, you won't regret it.

Do you like it, or is it too bright for you?

Selfridges Festival Beauty Box

Wednesday, 16 October 2013

Some please like to relax and read the news online and keep up with the current affairs, I like to browse websites like to see what new products they have and that I can add to my mental wish wish. So a few weeks ago when I logged on, I have to admit it had been a while since my last visit (Selfridges please make an app so I can browse on the go!), I was looking through one of my favourite sections (is this is starting to sound weird?) which is the "exclusives" as they normally have some interesting products. 

Anyway enough of my weird browsing habits...I came across the Festival Beauty Box and couldn't get my card out quick enough. I'll use the term "festival" loosely as I think the box is perfect for any beauty lover (like ourselves).

I haven't tried all the products, jeez I've barely made a start so this won't be review but it's such an amazing value box that I couldn't not tell you guys about it. There is a whooping 11 products for only £25(product value is over £110), which includes brands such as illamasqua, Topshop, and bareminerals to name a few! Even with the products I probably won't use (I didn't really need a glitter chubby stick) I still think it's the bargain of the century!

The boxes are still available online from
