I''ve worn this AX Paris playsuit before on the blog, I know I know, I'm an outfit REPEATER. I just love it though, it's floral, it's the perfect fit, and it's a great all year round playsuit. Plus it's not at all bum skimming like a lot of other brands seem to think is something we're all after this summer!
You know what, despite it being bank holiday weekend I've not actually got anything newsworthy to write down on here, Tom worked pretty much all weekend and I spent it cleaning, washing, and playing with makeup. I hate that time of the month when you're counting down the days till payday so you can get some sort of social life back!
Oh I also spent some time yesterday messing around with my hair to see what it'd look like shorter. I've been debating the chop for a while, lemme know what you think...
Firstly sorry for the rubbish photos, I had to take a few snaps of things on holiday with the overly bright lighting just because I couldn't wait 'till I got home to use them!
I've got a so many Mac eyeshadow photos and swatches so I thought I'd make a start in getting some reviews up on the blog. I reckon Mac and Urban Decay will always be my go to brands for eyeshadow just for the sheer amount of choice, the naked palettes mean you don't really need to look for neutrals again and with the mac pro palettes you can create the palette of dreams specifically to your preference.
I bought Swish on a bit of a whim last year purely because it looked all nice and shimmery in the pan, before that I hadn't gone anywhere near a pink eyeshadow since the days of jewelled hair springs and buddha beads - anyone remember them? I had a pink (of course) bracelet from New Look that I would not take off
Anyway I digress, as the sun seems to finally be making a bit of an appearance I've found myself gravitating towards Swish. It's a frost finish which can sometimes mean a lack of pigmentation but the colour payoff with Swish is actually quite strong, especially if you pat it onto the lid with a dense brush rather than sweeping it on. As it's part of the frost clan there's a shimmer running through it to give an almost iridescent feel which really makes your eyes look brighter if added to the inner corner.
It's actually quite versatile which isn't something you'd first think, I've been using it with mac's expensive pink or UDs half baked for a warmer look, but apparently it's also meant to look great with silvers and greys which I'm yet to try.
