MAC matte lipstick 'mehr'

Hello sweeties! Today I have a new lipstick to show you, now for me this one was a bit of a bargain. I have a Debenhams Beauty Club Card which is really good if you buy a lot of your make up or fragrance from Debenhams (You earn points and rewards as you spend) Now near me, Debenhams is the only place that stocks MAC and nails inc. so I tend to earn most of my points that way. Anyway I had a £5 reward on my card and over the weekend they also had 10% off, which meant I could get a MAC lipstick for £7.60 (yippee!). As usual by the time I had finished swatching my hand looked like a rainbow gone wrong. But in the end I settled for 'Mehr'.

Applied with no balm, so you can see colour true to form.
I don't usually go for Matte finish lipsticks as they tend to pick out every flaw of your lips if your not careful, but I decided that I liked the colour that much, any flaw could be sorted with balm. The colour itself is a rosy brown, which is really opaque as you would expect with a matte finish. I really love it, my only problem is that it does feel slightly heavy on the lips without a balm as a base, but once this was tried again with a balm first it was fine :)

Anyone else save up their Debenhams points and indulge? Are you a fan of matte lipsticks?

i left my head and my heart on the dance floor

As you can probably tell from my last post, going to see Lady GaGa was a big event in my life! Which obviously meant I had to pick a special nail varnish for the occasion! In amongst all of the people paying homage by dressing up and making signs, she was obviously going to notice my nails above all else haha! Anyway I didn't know what to do, I had no time for nail art but I wanted something to stand out so I went for the next best thing, glitter!

Base - 17 'Nightshade'
Details - Models Own 'Ibiza Mix'
Topcoat - Barry M 'All in one nail paint'

I knew that I was going to be dancing so went for disco style nails. I think the glitter looks amazing over the black! Exactly what I wanted!

What do you lovelies think? 


born this way ball

Yesterday, I was so lucky to go and see my absolute idol...Lady GaGa. I brought the tickets as soon as they came out, at the time it felt like forever but it has come around so quickly! I seemed to have a case of little kid syndrome, not being able to sleep the night before because I was too excited. As expected GaGa didn't disappoint and all day I have been talking to anyone who will listen about the show. She was supported by The Darkness who I also love, so this was a nice little bonus for me! The atmosphere was absolutely brilliant and I ache all over from dancing!
We even managed to get into the Monster Pit at the front, so I was less that 8 rows from her, so if you do go get there early so you can try and get into the front. When I brought the tickets, I did think the prices were a bit steep, but now looking back I genuinely think she was worth every penny! 

If you ever get the opportunity to go, you really should, she is so worth it!
