Gift Guide 2012: Bronze Eye + Über Bright Coral Lip Look!

And here is my first Beast Necklace, 
I have created the original Beast couple of years ago, and now I got back into it... 
I have been working on a bunch of new Beasts for the past few weeks,  which is super exciting!!
Hopefully before Christmas they will be ready!

Rimmel by Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 110...

I wanted to focus this blog post purely on the Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal eye liners that I am currently obsessed with, but yesterday when I went to Boots to get a few more colours and they finally had the new Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in the shade 110 [Dear Rimmel, please call them something, we can't do just digits!] back in stock - this shade is such an awesome popping super bright coral, I-am-in-love-with-it! Looks really cute on blondes because it has a warm undertone, as well as fantastic on yellow toned skin, double score! These lipsticks are heavily scented, to me they smell of watermelon, and I prefer this scent over MAC lipsticks by miles, they just smell so old fashioned to me, that sweet powdery vanilla makes me stop breathing in while applying it, so compared to that this scent is heaven to me! 

And so I decided to go for a warm bronze eye look and an über bright popping lip! Pretty fun and festive... For the eyeshadow I used MAC Amber Lights, which is a metallic antique gold shade, and the Rimmel Scandaleyes in Bronze I used on top and bottom, smoked out... I picked up two new colours - the 014 Bright Blue [I have few ideas for a fun festive blue eye look, will see what happens] and 004 Taupe [don't have anything similar to this, looks very chic] both are matte and as is the shade 005 Nude, which is great on the waterline to makes you look more fresh and awake, and for those with small eyes it's a must-have...

Mostly I wear darker shades in my waterline, it's just my go-to look... But sometimes I am in the mood for a nude waterline, in fact I wore this eye liner to an event, I will try to upload images of the look I wore soon... And finally my favourite shade so far is the 012 Bronze, of course amazing on blue eyes, but honestly what eyes wouldn't it be amazing on, it's a shimmer!! Also they are waterproof, quite long lasting, I mean for 4 quid you get a pretty awesome eye liner! Actually two of them I got for £1.99 [woop woop!] - Boots is having some multi-save deal happening right now, so check it out!



  1. Gosh that lipstick is beautiful on you, I'll have to check it out for sure - I also HATE when companies only number their shades, please give us names!!
    I only have the nude and black shades in the Rimmel liners, but that bronze and taupe ... Well they're just calling my name :)
    Your necklace is fabulous too xx

    1. Thanks so much Wendy! Really hoping to finish them before Christmas :)
      I think the Taupe will look lovely for a natural look, will need to play around with it! xx

  2. This is so gorg! (As usual!) I love the lip and eye combo. Amber lights has to be one of my favorite colors, it looks great on all skin tones! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks La :) MAC does fantastic eyeshadow shades! x
