Film Festival is dark, deep red with blue undertones (the one that makes your teeth look whiter). Very pigmented, creamy colour. Full coverage.
Standing Ovation is a slightly muted shade of pink. Again, creamy and and pigmented shade. Definitely more of a day-time colour.
Late, late show is a beautiful peachy nude. Fully opaque with 3 swipes. READ MORE->

Paul & Joe Eye Colour Trio CS in 093 Le Film & Eye Trio Compact in 006 (Dogs)

Paul & Joe Eye Colour Trio Compact in 006 (Dogs) and Paul & Joe Eye Colour Trio CS in 093 Le Film
Do you know a type of over reaction and excitement when you see something and you won't rest until you have it? Well that is me when it comes to Paul & Joe makeup. I literally won't go to sleep unless it is on its way to my house. (!) This year's autumn collection does not disappoint.

I totally adore their printed packaging: no one does it better than Paul & Joe! There is something for everyone. The packaging is cute but it is sturdy and hardwearing at the same time (taking from experience here) so do not be fooled by its prettiness: it it designed to last. Right, enough of that because I could go on for ages... how cute it is how pretty etc... Haha!

Everything smells so good and it is smell is not overpowering (I know some of you guys do not like Lush because the strong smell gives you a headache - well Fizzylicious should be perfect for you). So this is what I got:

Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Mandarin


Clinique Long Last Soft Matte Lipstick in Matte Mandarin. It looks redder on the picture!

Matte Mandarin is a shade that I wanted really, really badly. It is a beautiful and very intense shade of orange that looks absolutely lovely with tanned skin. Similar shades: all the orange shades I own are either redder or pinker!

The packaging is quite quirky I would say. It does not feel posh or sophisticated (read: like Chanel) although it looks like a high end one but with £18 price tag for each lipstick maybe the packaging should feel a little bit more special? I remember when Clinique lipsticks used to be more affordable but with such a high price tag they are now starting to compete with brands where the packaging really matters... What do you think?

Review: Kelly Osbourne: MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Dodgy Girl & Kelly Yum Yum vs Candy Yum Yum

 Kelly Osbourne: MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Dodgy Girl & Kelly Yum Yum

Dodgy Girl is a lovely, lovely lavender purple that I could not wait to wear. Similar shades: Mac Sheen Supreme in Asian Flower is shiner. Revlon Balm Stain in Darling is less opaque and shiner. Inglot Lip Pencil in 31 is pinker. 

Kelly Yum Yum is a redder version of Candy Yum Yum. They are both very bright but to be honest they are two different colours. Bare in mind that Kelly Yum Yum looks so red on the pictures (pink shades do not photograph well) Similar shades: easily dupable.

If you only buy one thing this month...

... make it The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil! :)

The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Oil in 02 Golden Honey

This is absolutely amazing product, which works especially well with tanned skin but do not worry if you still pale like me - it looks lovely on pale skin as well! It lasts for ages as well - if you put it on in the morning it will stay on until you wash it off. I can't describe in words how pretty it actually looks on the skin. Basically I feel and look like million dollars but in a very subtle way (not going OTT with glitter). And... the SMELL! It just smells like a lush holiday to me. Definitely something to keep hold of :) Totally recommend. A. xo
