MAC - Honey Love Lipstick (Review) + OOTD

I've always been a bit put off wearing a nude lipstick, I guess I wasn't to keen on how 'pale' the face can look (I'm normally a bright pink lip sotra' girl) 

Another problem I had with a nude lippy is because I have a warmer skin tone I always felt a nude lipstick can make me look washed out. 

However, I had heard good things about MACs Honey Love lipstick

Here's a picture of me wearing the lipstick ... 

But how do we find the perfect nude shade?

1) A way to find a good shade is to swatch the lipstick on your wrist just under your palm, the shade should be 1-2 shades darker then the shade of your palm. 

2) Beige tones can tend to wash the skin tone a lot, try a peach or pink toned lipstick which can give a warmer and brighter hint of color. 

3) Don't have a nude lipstick yet? SIMPLE ... Just use a concealer which is also a few shades darker than your skin color, before applying it apply a lip balm to smooth out the lips as a concealer can sometimes be drying (MAC's prep + prime is a favorite of mine.) 


I did say in my previous post I would show you what I matched my beloved city bag with and here it is ... 

Please excuse the dirty mirror!

UPDATE - Haul & Interview.

Hi Guys!!

I've decided on doing these blog updates now and then when something interesting in my life is happening :) 

First of all ... since working in London's Knightsbridge, iv'e learnt to acquire a certain designer taste that I never knew existed.

  I am always drooling over ladies Hermes bags and CHANEL jewelery that I am so desperate to create a walk in wardrobe full of special gems!
But then I wake up and realize it's all but a distant dream ... 

One item I have had on my mind for a while now is the beautiful Prada Top Handle in Black. 

At whopping price of £1,250 I know it is most definitely a far away skin pinching dream. HOWEVER ... not all is lost in the world of bargain hunting. I found a Prada dupe that you may be aware of already. 

Introducing the ZARA Office City Bag, RRP: £49.99. (Free delivery with order over £50, so I ordered a cute headband for the summer too.)

It's smooth to the touch and gentle on the eye ... IM IN LOVE WITH IT. 

What's even more of an advantage is that I was unaware of the compartments inside, there are slots for your cards, a phone holder and a zipped pocket ... not to forget a whole compartment perfect for your laptop!

But the best news is yet to come ... 

Tomorrow (21/03/13) is a very important interview, with a very important company for a very important internship. I don't want to give much away just yet, however, I will be taking my beautiful city bag along with me. 

Keep in touch to see what i paired my city bag with and to find all the details on my interview.
