Jumping On The Seche Vite Wagon (Late)!

Yes yes, I know everyone has already had this and reviewed it. I've been meaning to get it for ages but this is my take on it.



I finally got around to ordering this last week along with another top coat. Which if you follow me on Twitter you'd have probably seen me tweeting about because I just can't get enough of it but I'll save that for another post.

This actually does what it says, 'fast drying'. It really is! I've had countless polishes in the past both coloured and top coats that say fast drying but take forever to dry. They're the kind after a couple minutes you can press on and get an indent of your fingerprint, and that is not a good look.

I applied this and less then a minute later (could have been 30 seconds?) I touched it, no stickyness. Pushed down on it, no fingerprint. I even tried to force one of my nails down into the polish and there was no mark what so ever.

This is just what I need. I hate waiting for polish to dry as I can be really impatient at times. So if you haven't already got this you must get it now!

And I know I've been really slack at blogging this month. I'm not sure why that is but I'll be back on form next month. :)

M.A.C Euristocrats II Review.


Seven hot new Dazzleglass shades to add the sheen, the sparkle, and the ooh-la-la that never fails to entertain. They're the "something extra" we've added to the Lipstick and Dazzleglass collection Euristocrats can't get enough of. More, more, more!

I was super super excited when I got told about this collection as I love Dazzleglass's. Can't say I'm really bothered by the lipsticks since they are all permanent in Europe.




Via Veneto is a light violet with blue pearl. I've already expressed my love for anything purple, especially lips, many a times in this blog. But I love this! It's not as obviously purple as Funtabulous (from Double Dazzle). It's such a nice change to a nude lip that isn't pink/beige.
Internationalist is a yellow pink with blue pearl. I love anything with blue in as well. Even though this is staying permanent I wanted to get it and try it now and I'm so glad I did. I love it.
Rue D' Rouge is a light red with pink pearl. As soon as I got this out of the box I could have cried. It looks almost exactly like Love Alert (from Double Dazzle) in the vial.




You can notice a very slight difference when they're in the vial but when they're swatched you can see the difference. Rue D' Rouge is quite obviously red where as Love Alert is a pink red. I can't say I've been wearing this as much as I could, I feel kind of cheated that they're so alike but I'm sure I'll get over it eventually.

Love this collection, even if I did only get a couple things. I will always love Dazzleglass's even if they are more expensive then Lipglass, for less product. I can't resist the sparkly-ness.

M.A.C Baby Bloom Review (Part 1).


Shift your look to the sunny side of the street but keep face and lips soft, lightly-tinted, everyday sun-safe! Choose from five neutral SPF 15 shades of new Studio Moisture Tint, and five soft-as-air shades of new Suntints SPF 20 Liquid Lip Balm.

Another not so great collection by M.A.C or so I thought. When I saw the promo pics for this a while back, I will admit it didn't stir an ounce of excitement in me. Not one little bit. I just thought lip balms ... Well that's going to be great. I take back what I thought.

I plan on getting the Studio Moisture Tint which I'll do in a Part 2 blog.

For now ... Suntints.



Lilt Of Lily is a soft creamy pale pink
Moist Plum is a light lilac with very fine pearl.

I'll be the first to admit these aren't the most pigmented lip products available. And they're kinda of pricey, they're just lip balms after all right? And you could get 4 tubs of Carmex (or there abouts) for around the same price. Wrong. I've had a M.A.C Tendertone before this and a Tinted Lip Conditioner which are great but they feel kind of 'greasy' to me and heavy on the lips. These are amazing to wear. They give a glossy look to the lip without the sticky feeling of wearing a gloss and are really light on the lips. Absolute pleasure wearing these and they last for ages! I've had them for just over a week now and I can't praise them enough. I'm trying to refrain from buying anymore as I have enough lip products as it is. :(

M.A.C Haul.

Ok so since I couldn't get anything I wanted from Colour Craft or Naked Honey as soon as I saw the 4 new collections up on Monday I knew I had to get in early.








There's still a few things I want from all 3 collections I got things from. But I'll get those at a later date, I just wanted to make sure I could get everything I really wanted. I'll be reviewing everything else in a couple days also. :D
