Items that I am loving, lusting after, and loathing this month:
MAC 168 Brush
I've been after a decent blush/contour brush for a while now, my blusher brush from The Body Shop just wasn't cutting it in application terms of precision, so when I spied the MAC 168 on legeleven7's blog sale recently, I snapped it up for a bargain price (as an early Christmas pressie to myself!).
It is already revolutionising the way I can apply my blusher, and I get a much better colour payoff with this brush too. It has shed a couple of hairs, but I'll give it a wash with some trusty baby shampoo and I'm sure it'll be right as rain! It's nothing I can't cope with anyway!
I really would like to try some Louise Young or Sigma brushes, but for now, I'm happy with my trusty MAC staples. If you haven't got any, they really are worth the investment.
Viktor & Rolf: Flowerbomb
I have been lusting after this perfume for approx 4 years now, and the increased lusting may have something to do with it being on a certain Mrs Cole's favourite scents list!
I've literally lost count of the amount of times I've spritzed this all over myself at fragrance counters, and kept those little tester cards drenched in Flowerbomb in my handbag! It really is such a perfect scent, I can't get enough of it!
I'd class the price of this fragrance on the more high end scale, which is why I can't justify buying it for myself. It's on my Christmas list, so let's hope Santa thinks I've been a good girl this year! I have, I have, I have :)
No matter how hard I try, I just can't make certain shades of pink (well, pretty much all of them really) eyeshadow work for my skintone :( This makes me sad a) because I adore pink, and b) because there are some gorgeous different pink eyeshadows out there.
Any pink on my eyes just makes me look like I've been crying for 24 hours straight, with no sleep and then got punched...guess I'll have to stick to pinky tones on my lips and cheeks instead :(
Ah well, we can't have it all can we?!
