As soon as the calendar says 1. September, I bring out my darker and much loved polish shades. Normally I go for the dark red and burgundy colours but in this case I fell head over heels for this beauty. I la la love my darker nails and I could easily wear them all year round. More fitting for spring/summer are my love for pastels.

This Gina Tricot Beauty Boysenberry is a gorgeous red-toned purple. I had this on last week and now I just have to apply it again – that’s how much I love it. I sense a monthly fave! The polishes from GT are ok, they are not the best but a good Top Coat will do the tricker. 

What are you wearing on your nails atm? What is your fave colour for A/W?

Lots of love

I actually had an #lfbeautybox post planned but I wished and sat by the door this morning and it worked. My Makeup Revolution parcel arrived. I actually think that the postman got surprized by how quick I opened the door. haha. 

Last week, I convinced my sister to make an order with me on Makeup Rev’s siteOh little convincing needed.  I just thought that she needed more make up – but who doesn’t? I have been seeing lots of tweets, blogposts and instagram pictures and I really needed to try some bits so we made a small order last week just to try it out and the parcel already arrived. Yaaas, that was quick!

I won’t say much about the products other than: 
– Yes I needed a purple PURPLE lippy 
– Yes I need more blushes. && look at this beauty! 
– And no, I haven’t heard a lot about the eye primer but it sounded interesting

– Yes, yes & yes – I will be ordering from MR again. Their customer service is fab – especially their contact via twitter. 

Have you made an order from Makeup Rev? Have you tried any of these products? 

Lots of love

Hi there lovely ladies! How are you this Friday? Hopefully you have a nice weekend planned? I have to work and then I will relax with writing on my blogs. A nice and cosy weekend. 

It’s mid November and my mood have been christmassy for over a month now – already! I love that the supermarkets, shopping malls and the city is starting to get all decorative. There is just something about Christmas that makes it my favourite time of the year. It’s cosy, everyone is happy and you can spoil your loved ones. 

I also love that you can wear a red lip on a daily basis without people starring too much. Now, I love a red lip but what I love more is a matte red lip. So I thought that I would share my how to get the perfect matte red lip. 

The first product I use is a lip scrub. Exfoliation is a must when I have to apply a matte lip. It removes the dead skin and smooths the lips. I la la love my LUSH Mint Julips. The price is good, the taste is fab and it just works as it should. Now I love a good mint flavoured lip scrub so when my LUSH one rand out I picked this Sara Happ Peppermint up. This is a lot more expensive but dang I love it. 

Next you need some hydration and moisture. I love to apply my Nivea Lip Butter. This one is the original one but any flavour is great. Moisture is the key to a good matte lip. Lastly, you will need the colour – duuh. This NYX Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red is gorgeous! I love the formula, I love the colour. It’s just fab! It glides on and stay put for lots of hours.  

Volá. Perfect matte lips just in time for the Christmas season!

Do you love matte lips as much as I do? Which matte lipstick is your fave?

Lots of love
