When I was about 12, so probably in 1992, I won a make-up set in a magazine competition. There was pale blue eyeshadow and and frosted pink lipstick and I adored it. Since then there have been brushes with bad foundation, glittery eyes, and sticky lip gloss but now there is mostly this...
Clockwise from top left: Liz Earle Hand Repair, Dr Hauschka's Neem Nail Oil (whenever I remember), MAC lipsticks in Lady Bug and Lustering, Nars The Multiple in Orgasm, Liz Earle's Botanical Essence No. 1 (it took me a while to decide whether I liked it but the slightly old fashioned floral musk seems right at the moment), MAC blot powder in medium, vaseline, Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser in nude, and a Baggu medium gold pouch (I'm using a platinum one that I bought in June and it currently holds vaseline, a nail file, two plasters, powder, mascara, two pens, three lipsticks, ibuprofen, a hair band, two other lip balms, hand cream, chewing gum, and a penny. It may be time for a clear out.)
I'm yet to settle on a mascara and if anyone knows a good coral or orange lipstick then please do share.
I have been using maybelline's great lash mascara for years...and I LOVE it. I also use a lash primer (from victoria's secret) before applying...and that seems to make a big difference. OH...and they also make great lash in different colors - so sometimes I throw the blue in every once in a while...and people always comment!!
Snap on our perfume choices - I'm not usually a lover of floral scents, but that Liz Earle has enough of a quirk to make it interesting
I end up going back to great last pretty regularly but have never tried it with a lash primer. I'll need to give it a go. I've been reading a lot about plum mascaras lately so maybe I should pick one up.
Ali - I know, I really wasn't sure at first but now I love it. It actually reminds me of a Gucci perfume that my Mum wore in the 80s!
Love the lipsticks!
As for corals, I really like MAC's 'Ravishing'. http://www.amazon.com/MAC-Lipstick-Cremesheen-Ravishing-Unboxed/dp/B007WN6NYK Looks more pink in this photo, but it wears more coral -- at least it did on me. Love it during springtime.
