Posted on July 3, 2014

Hi Guys!

I thought I’d put a little look post together with my brand new Dream wig from Hot Hair and fave new lippy! – If you don’t know what that is, where have you been!? It’s the Too Faced Melted Lipstick in Melted Violet, you need this is your life! There are also plenty of other colours to choose from if you’re not a fan of purple 🙂 I won’t write all about the lipstick again, as I’ve already written two posts on it including the Melted Coral colour! So please check out these posts if you’re interested!

Anyway, the main point of this post is that I wanted to show off my awesome new wig from Hot Hair! This is the Dream Wig by Natural Image, in Platinim Mist. Now, this was a bit of a risqué choice, as the wig is platinum grey – this is definitely not for the faint hearted! But you know me, I like to mix up my looks so I thought a grey wig with a bright lip could look really cool! When the wig arrived and I showed my other half, he was like ‘oh, it’s grey??’ YES! And I actually happen to love it!

The Dream wig is such a gorgeous flattering style, it’s a short bob with lovely layers around the face. The hair falls beautifully so you can keep it looking smart and sleek, or mess it up a bit like I have 🙂
It’s also worth mentioning this wig features a Comfort Cap Base to ensure a cool, comfortable fit. And the Monofilament top is hand-knotted onto a flesh colored top to create lots of movement and to create the illusion that the hair is growing right out of your scalp. Awesome!

I completely love this wig, I’m so glad I went for the grey! What do you think? Shall I stick with the grey or go for a more traditional colour?? 🙂 xxx

MAC Heroine Lipstick Review and Swatches

Posted on March 24, 2014

Hi Guys!

So I recently caved in and purchased MAC’s Heroine lipstick. I went to buy it when it was originally released but I was a bit slow off the mark, and it sold out super fast, so I missed out and was pretty disappointed. Then suddenly MAC was shouting from the rooftops that Heroine was back in stock, woo hoo! So I nabbed one up quickly! I really don’t need any more lipsticks but this just looked like such a gorgeous shade of purple I couldn’t resist!

So, Heronie is simply described as ‘bright purple’ by MAC, and it really is! It also has a matte finish, which I realised after I bought it. This did slightly concerned me due to my RIRI Talk That Talk disaster experience, but luckily this is just a matte, and Talk That Talk lipstick was a retro matte, phew!

The colour is, to me, simply perfection. I know that sounds a bit OTT but purple lipstick is my ‘thing’, I have a small collection of purples which I’m always keen to expand on as there aren’t many out there  that fit my requirements – they always seem a bit to reddish, more on the burgundy side than a true purple – and there definitely aren’t many ‘true’ purple lipsticks around at all! I have in my mind what I’m looking for, this is definitely the closest I’ve found yet.

Ok I’m in love with this lipstick, I completely understand why it sold out (and has now for a second time) it’s such a wearable colour, even for pale and peculiar people like me! Purple lipsticks are often either very dark, which often doesn’t suit me, or very sheer, and then I’m disappointed with the colour payoff. This is neither, it’s a clean, bright colour, the formula though matte, feels creamy and comfortable to wear, even on my lips which tend to be dry, and it lasts for hours before re-application is required. This definitely gets a 10 out of 10 from me!

I’d love to hear what you think? Did you snap up Heroine or wish you had?

I hope you enjoyed my review xxx
