MAC | Kelly Osbourne Collection

MAC Kelly Osbourne Lipstick in Kelly Yum-Yum - £15.50
MAC Kelly Osbourne Skinfinish in Jolly Good - £24.00

I simply couldn't resist the MAC Kelly Osbourne collection, I love everything about Miss O's style, and I'm an even bigger fan of her Dad's music! The lilac packaging is simply gorgeous, it has an almost silver sheen to it with Kelly's signature in red embossed on it (her mum Sharon's collection is red packaging with a lilac signature - perfect!). 

The mineralize skinfinish in Jolly Good is a baked duo of a light golden bronze sheen and a lighter pink shimmer that mix together to make a darker pink shimmer. To be honest, I'm not too sure what to use this for - it's too glittery for an all over face powder, a little too dark for a highlighter but too light for a blush. I've used it a few times as a blush topper which works nicely, and on darker skin tones I'm sure it would be a lovely highlighter. I'm sure I'll find a way to make it work eventually! 

The lipstick in Kelly Yum-Yum is a very bright candy pink, and obviously very similar to Candy Yum-Yum, which I don't own. It's very bold on me, but I've only tried it without make up on so I'm sure I'll love it when I do. It's not going anywhere anyway! The finish is Satin and it applies beautifully.

I'm so in love with this collection, I even picked up the blusher in Cheeky Bugger in a blog sale and might eve pick up the lilac lipstick in Dodgy Girl, which is still available on the MAC website.

MAC | Alluring Aquatic Haul

MAC Alluring Aquatic Extra Dimension Blusher in Seduced At Sea 
MAC Alluring Aquatic Lipsticks in Goddess Of The Sea and Enchanted One

I'm a little late in showing you my Alluring Aquatic haul, so I'll keep it short and sweet! As you know, MAC released this collection last month and no one could resist the amazing packaging. Both the boxes and the outer packaging of the products are an aqua chrome with 3D waterdrops! Not printed waterdrops - you can actually feel these when you run your fingers along the packaging. It's just beautiful. 

The extra dimension blusher in Seduced At Sea is described as a plum colour, to me its a very ruddy nude colour! Its not my absolute favourite blush shade, but the extra dimension formula is so smooth and creamy for a powder blush - MAC are bang on when they say its almost gel like. 

I love both the lipsticks - Goddess of The Sea is a plummy purple shade with a cremesheen finish. It's nothing like any of the other MAC purples I own and somehow a bit more wearable! Enchanted One is a peachy nude with a matte finish and I've seen it compared on other blogs to Kinda Sexy. 

It's the Alluring Aquatic packaging that I think most people have fallen in love with - MAC had better keep this standard up for future collections!

MAC | Flat Out Fabulous

MAC Flat Out Fabulous - £15.00

MAC Flat Out Fabulous is the latest edition to my MAC lipstick collection, and I love it! It's one of their new retro matte formulas, it really stays put without being too drying. It's now part of the permanent range so you can buy it online and at MAC stores/counters.

The colour is, well, fabulous! It's a matte version of the amplified lipstick Girl About Town, a really nice magenta pink with what I can only describe as purple undertones. If you like a matte pink lip without going super bright or neon, then Flat Out Fabulous is definitely worth a shout.

I'M BACK (Really, I mean it this time!)

The last time I wrote a 'I'm Back!' blog post, I never came back. Infact, it's a month later and I haven't posted once. I feel bad, I'm so sorry! 

But I'm really back this time, with a BA Honours Degree in Journalism! I passed everything and I'll be graduating in July! I'm so happy to be graduating and I can't believe I've finished four years of University. I'm also no longer working in the Student's Union, because I'm no longer a student! I'm going to miss everyone so much but I've made some friends I'm sure I'll keep for life. 

So, I'm off to write up some really late blog posts and get back into my blogging groove! Thank you to everyone that has stuck with me and I'm going to try and keep things going through the new adventures that are waiting for me in the real world!

I'm Back! | Explanation and Apology

I'M BACK! Firstly I want to apologise for my long unexplained absence from blogging - I'm so sorry! I've been so busy with University, my final portfolio and my dissertation were both due over the last few weeks and I've been under so much pressure. I also ran for Campus President at Uni and lost, so that wasn't great but I'm moving on! 

I am finally (almost) done with Uni, I have one exam left in a few weeks and then I am finished forever! It's very nerve wracking and I have no idea what I'm going to do yet, but on the plus side I have time to blog again! 

So, once again I can only apologise for disappearing, but now I'm back in business and I'll be posting lots over the next few weeks!
