This is Revlon, Super Lustrous Lipstick in 001 Nude. Now to be fair I'm not giving credit where credits due. Its actually a really nice lipstick, the textures gorgeous, quite thick and nice and matte. It does sink into the creases slightly but theres enough colour so its not too obvious and if it was in a bright pink or red it would be perfect.... but its just this colour!!!!
I'm so determined to find a pale nude that suits me and I always buy these foundation coloured lipsticks but they look god dam awful on me. This one has got a slight orange to it so does look ok when I have loads of fan tan on for a night out.... I'll just have to place it along the other 500 nude lipsticks I have and pray that my skin tone changes over night :(
I am dying with excitement for the next sleek collection 'avoir la Peche' seen below. This includes a new palette (filled with corals and browns), a new blusher and a nude pout pot! And its all coming out on the 16th March, 2 days after my birthday.... how perfect :-)

Its a really interesting mix of metallics and pastels. Here are some sneaky photos I took on my phone:
Lip cremes in tawny and daze (how similar is tawny to the Mac Gaga viva glam 2 lipglass I literally just posted!!?) I tried out the cremes and they were fantastic, high pigment but not to matter. Hydrating but not sticky like a gloss. If Mr green can here me now....."bring out more colours!!!" Eye mousses in Glint and Tundra
and the nail duos in Zealous and Wilderness. LOVE the aqua green nail varnish, although the colours not come out great in the photo.

Hummmm to be honest I cant quite make my mind up....Its a great colour, very dark black. The first coat goes on really well, so if you like it quick and natural looking its really good. But I like to build up mascara, and once you make that second coat its all sticks together. I tried twisting, I tried wiggling but the ends of the lashes still all stuck together (which you can see in the photo) and I couldn't get them apart.
My only advice is don't let this one put you off the whole range, I think volume express is a fantastic. Have you tried this mascara? What did you think?

I DIE! To be honest its like in was designed for a 'bronzer obsessive', 'nude nail varnish loving' Chanel-aholic like me.
Its out in May and I'm counting down the days...

Bridget on the lips:
Not really sure about the gel liner (£10), for some reason unknown to my conscious self I bought blue, which is a colour I never really wear or like, I just seemed stupid to buy my 5th black gel liner. The brush that comes with it is possibly the WORST brush I have ever seen...... I wouldn't even clean my shoes with it, put it straight in the bin....but applied with a better brush (even N07's larger eye liner brush, £6.64 is pretty good). The colour doesn't stay on the best but would be fine for a night out, or a smudgy smoky eye.
