MAC Divine Night Lipsticks

Earlier this month MAC launched their Divine Night collection. I literally love all the lipsticks in this collection and could buy them all but seeing as I don't actually own a classic red (Russian Red has been on my list a long time!) I decided to pick up 'Prepare for Pleasure'. Of course once I was there I was swayed by the beautiful pearl-essence of 'You've Got It' so ended up with that one too!

MAC Lipsticks from the Divine Night Collection 2013

First off I love the limited edition gold accenting, it gives the collection a real luxury feel and it's something I think they should seriously considering rolling out for all their lipsticks.

  • Prepare For Pleasure - a clean magenta red with cremesheen finish
  • You've Got It - a pink undertone with a gold frost and a frost finish

MAC You've Got It Lipstick from the Divine Night Collection 2013

The colours are really pretty layered over each other and I think You've Got It will look great over any darker shades. I'm definitely going to be experimenting with this colour.

Have you seen anything you like from the Divine Nights collection? Don't forget MAC are releasing another collection end of December - the Magnetic Nude collection.

Wednesday Wishlist

Tartan Scarf, £27 – ah tartan, the pattern of AW13. This Barbour beaut swiftly made its way into my basket yesterday – can’t wait for it to arrive!
 Orange Coat, £99
 Cat Activity Scratcher, £30 – so I’m getting a wonderful pair of kittens in the coming weeks which means lots of kitty shopping (who knew it could be such fun!). I think this would keep them amused while we’re out but it may be a little OTT…

Christmas Nail Series: pt1 Festive Sparkle

Is it too early? Never!

If you saw my seasonal nail post last year (reindeer) you might be pleased to know I’ll be doing it again this year but with lots more designs, hurrah!

I’m going to ease us in to the Christmas Spirit gently as it’s still only November with some dark berry nails courtesy of Seche Vite 'Irresistible' and some golden sparkle thanks to OPI 'Man With The Golden Gun'.

Keep your eyes peeled for my festive take on Santa , snowflakes, holly and Christmas pudding.
