FOTD...Nude Delight

Long time no see! Freshers week has literally taken over my life, busy busy busy! Ive found a quick moment to share with you the new nude love of my life....Rimmels Nude Delight. Ive never had a nude lipstick before this as I was nervous of the concealer lips look, but this is just beautiful. My boyfriend even asks me to wear it because he loves it, and that just shows its good if he even notices!

Isnt it lovely! Heres how Ive been wearing it...a pretty basic but fresh face which Ive found really easy for the mornings after the night before (of which there have been many of recently) when Ive worn loads of make-up on he night time and want a cleaner look through the day.

If you read my recent favourites video youll know I have a new lipstick obsession with the Dior Addict lipstick in Diorkiss. I recently paired it with an eyeshadow look that I created from my Naked palette, another love of my life.

Recent Favourites

Once again I have been slgihtly absent from blogging recently. I have been so busy setting up for uni, then I got rather ill, and then the past week has been spent celebrating my 20th birthday. I cant make promises on blogging at least once a day like I used to, as Im starting Uni next week. However, I do still love reading blogs and writing them, its just a case of finding the time. I love my little blog and anyone who reads it, so without further ado Ill get on with the post.

This post was meant to be my August Favourites, but saying as we are now nearly half way through September (wtf, seriously?!) that I cant really call it that. However, these are definately my august faves, but about 13 days late, sorry!!

Dior Addict Lipstick in 578 Diorkiss
This was a rather naughty purchase for me in August, and one that I found it hard to justify sepnding so much on a lipstick to anyone in my family. Ive been lusting after it for months, and Im so glad I bought it, its now my favourite lipstick possibly ever. The packaging for a start is so gorgeous, I love how it looks different colours in the light. The lipstick itself is so creamy and moisturising its a pleasure to apply. It has possibly one of the longest staying ability of any lipstick Ive tried. I used to think expensive lipstick would be a waste of money but I really can honestly tell a huge difference between the quality of this one and other cheaper ones. Ive got a FOTD post coming very soon showing this on.

 Barry M Nail Paint in Coral
We may not have had much of a summer this year in the UK, but this nail polish is still teh perfect summer polish. I had this on my fingers and toes for the majority of August if not all of it. Everyone knows the amazing price and quality of these polishes anyway, but this colour is so summery I love it. Ill definately be taking it on holiday with my in October.

Smashbox Double Exposure Cheek and Lip colour in Speedracer
To me, this is just a perfect cream blush. I use it mostly for contouring as its a lovely browny shade, but i also gives a gorgeous natural blush colour. Im a big fan of these kinds of colours as blush, especially with a tan, and this goes on a dream. Love love love.

 MAC Paintpot in Vintage Selection
This has feautured in my favourites post on more than one ocassion but I do seriously love this product. I know it was limited edition, but from swatching at the counter Ive found that Bare Study is very similar to Vintage Selection and is permanent so go give it a go! My eye-makeup seriously does not bunch an inch when I use this as a base. It gives a gorgeous champagney shimmer on its own, which I often like to jsut wear this, liquid liner and lashings of mascara. This is probably one of my favourite MAC purchases to date, just gorgeous.
Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen in Black.
Ive never had a talent for liquid liner, every time I ventured to apply it I would make a complete mess of it and end up having to angrily take off my whole face of make-up and start over. Until I got this! The felt tip applicator makes this liner sooooo simple to apply, Ive never ever made a mistake with it. It lasts ages on as well, its always still intact when I come to take my make-up off. I would recommend it to anyone, particularly liquid liner novices! Unfortunately this os drying out now, which isnt bad since I got it at Christmas, so now I fancy trying a new one, Loreal Super Liner perhaps

Not too many favourites this month I know, but I really struggled on deciding on some.
Thanks for reading!

MAC Haul!

Just a warning that theres probably a few too many haul posts going up on my blog in the next week or so. ive been a bit naughty with my money since finishing P20P. Oooops. Heres some lovely things I got from MAC recently....

 Teddy Eye Kohl was a purchase purely because the lovely Tanya Burr from Pixi2Woo loves it. I trust her recommendations and I was looking for a good brown liner anyway so this seemed perfect. I really really love it. It kind of has teeny gold shimmery bits in it and is a ovely dark brown colour. The texture is lovely and soft so it goes on beautifully. Thanks Tanya!
 Swiss Chocolate is the newest addition to my ever grown MAC neutral eyeshadow collection. Its a lovely warm matte brown so its a perfection addition. Its great for if Ive used shimmer on the lid to use this matte in the crease so my eyes arent totally shimmery. Its a good staple colour and I would recommend it to anyone.
 Nymphette Lipglass was a bit of an impulse buy for me. I know the lipglasses have a bad name for being sticky and not too nice but I wanted to try for myself. Sadly I have to agree though. For a start Im not too keen on the colour when its actually on my lips, and I just cant get away with the feel of it. At least I know for next time to stick to other formulas that I definately like!
Dollymix blush was always something Ive lusted after, hence the name of my blog! David saw the name of it and said "well you have to buy it, you named your blog after it". Its gorgeous, shimmery in the same was as an MSF, and a gorgeous deep pigmented pink. You have o use a light hand but it does pay off wonderfully. Its nothing like any other blush in my collection so Im really glad I bought it.
