Shame, I will hang my head in shame


So me and my big mouth saying I was going to do project 10 pan. Tut. Well you know yourself I was doing so well.

Anyway I was flipping through a magazine and there was a picture of MACs to the beach summer collection, before I realised it I was on the phone to BT's and they told me the collection had just come in that day. So you would think it would be quicker to say "Goodbye" but trust me I managed a "can you hold a Marine Life and Beach Bronze creme bronze for me and I will collect it later today" in a nanosecond.

Off I toddled to BT's and to be honest I thought I was going to buy more from the range but magically I showed some restraint.

On the left is Beach Bronze and the right is Marine Life
Beach Bronze is a Creme Bronzer, it has a beautiful consistency and blends really well. I apply it usually using my fingers and put a bit on my for head, down the bridge of my nose and cheeks.
Marine Life is stunning, its advertised as a highlight hmmmm. Anyway it is a beautiful coral color with light champagne along the bottom. There is a very pretty seahorse design which is covered in a light dusting of gold. When I say light, I mean light one swipe and its gone and that is literally one swipe. Its ok though the pretty seahorse stays put. (I am a sucker for a gimmick). I use the coral as a blush and honestly I haven't gone near the actual highlight part.
During my trip to BT I became convinced that I had actually reached Project Ten Pan and that I deserved these. When I got home I read my list and I had only gotten to 7 which were mostly fancy bath products. Fail of all fails. On a brighter note it seems like Marine Life sold out everywhere really quickly so if I hadnt got it there and then it would have been lost to me forever. Ah excuses excuses ,

Summer of Love

Things that I am loving right now ..... the SUN... hello sunshine where have you been?... I have missed you. Isn't it brilliant that the SUN has appeared to cheer us up during our darkest recessionary days??

Anyway down to business I received the Summer of Love Nail Kit from Urban Decay as a pressie from my BFF, usually I am not mad about expensive nail polish cause I would rather put my money elsewhere but I freakin love this set.

As you can see there are seven mini nail polishes in the set.
There is Shine on which is described as a beige sparkle and Love Light which is baby pink sparkle, these are my least favourite of the bunch they are quite sheer but still pretty.

Then there is Hashbry which is a deep purple colour and Aquarius which is electric teal. These are really lovely colours.

Now to my favourite colours Magic Bus is an "in your face" orange, Psychedelic sister a bright and beautiful coral and finally Woodstock a radioactive pink and this one is really radioactive. These three baby's are intense and beautiful and only need one coat for full coverage. I am not sure which one is my favourite.... but let me tell you this is all I will be seen in for the forthcoming sunny days. Pin It
