The Ciate Sequin Manicure

There are many products I often get excited about in the beauty world, but the new Ciate Sequin Manicure is certainly at the top of my wish list..

With the success of the Ciate Caviar and Ciate Velvet manicure sets, it's highly likely that their latest sequinned addition will prove to be just as popular.

The sets are available in three fabulous sparkling colours:

Harlequin – a mix of fab blue, green and red tones
Tutu – a mix of pink, purple and red tones
Superduper – a mix of gold, copper and green tones.

To apply you simply paint your nails with the sequin Glitter Grip and then sprinkle the small sequins from the pot onto your nails!
The sets are £15 each and are now available at Selfridges.

Would love to hear your experiences of using the Ciate Sequin manicure set!

Outfit of the Day:Dogtooth Print Shirt Dress

Dogtooth print shirt-River Island
Leggings & Ring-Topshop
Boots- Stuart Weitzman for Russell & Bromley
Just a quick post to show you an outfit I was wearing the other day..
I wouldn't normally go for a dogtooth print but I really liked the contrasting black collar and back of this River Island shirt and also the way the hem drops slightly lower at the back. As I'm pretty tall (around 5'9) it's quite difficult to find dresses that aren't too short so this shirt is the perfect length with leggings, and at £10 in the sale I could harly resist! I find these shirts easy to wear for many occassions as you can throw them on with heels or just boots/flats for the day time.
Usually, I would wear this shirt with a statement necklace tucked under the collar, but as the print is quite bold and busy I decided to accessorise it with a vintage red belt to give a pop of colour and with my trusty black suede Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots.
I've also been wearing my Zara coat none stop and I've noticed they have started to introduce other styles with leather collars into their autumn winter collection. Take a look at them here.
I also went shopping in Birmingham for the first time at the weekend and picked up a couple of treats which I will be posting about very soon.

One of my favourite purchases was this Bobbi Brown lipstick in number 7 Orange that I'm wearing in the images above. I already have the perfect red lipstick so I went for a shade thats slightly more of a coral, but can be built up to a deeper red shade if you apply it a couple of times! The colour seems to stay for long periods of time without reapplying so I'm very happy with this product! (What I haven't told you is that my very trendy nanna actually bought it first!)
Would love to hear what you have been buying recently?

Hope you have enjoyed my outfit post,

Beauty Reviews: MAC Rebel Lipstick, Honey Lust Eyeshadow & Lingering Brow Pencil

Over the past few years I've tried many beauty products, but for some reason MAC is one of the brands I have never experimented with. After reading many great beauty reviews and listening to my friends rave about their products I'm not really sure why I never made a purchase..but now I have, I'm well and truly addicted!
The first product I went for was the eyebrow pencil..then the eyeshadow..and then this fabulous satin lipstick in Rebel!
With so many lipstick shades to choose from I ended up walking in for a nude shade and came out with the complete opposite-typical! However, I was assured by the lovely MAC sales assistant that I NEEDED to try this lipstick and she was so right, the colour is amazing!
Although it is a much darker shade than the plum/pink tones I usually go for, I was made up with the pigment! At a glance, the lipstick looks very dark but when it is applied it is a gorgeous deep rich purple that can be built up gradually if you desire a darker shade! With dark lips on the beauty agenda for 2013, this shade is the perfect addition to your A/W lipstick collection!
I was also pleased with the price (£14.00 buy here) and the longevity of the lipstick as the colour lasted throughout the night with only minimal top ups!


My second MAC find was this divine golden eyeshadow in Honey Lust which you can buy here. I'd been looking for a versatile eyeshadow colour that could be applied in the day for a highlighted glow and used as a high impact eyeshadow in the evening. So far, I have used this eyeshadow on it's own in the day and I have added rich brown tones for a smoky effect in the evening. This little pot of golden lustre is only £12 and you can buy a refil of the colour for £10 when it runs out!
After using this eyebrow pencil for a couple of weeks, I think I'd be completely lost without it! I've tried many eyebrow pencils before but this MAC brown pencil in 'Lingering'(buy here) is super easy to apply, precise and has definitely helped to define my make up look!
Colouring your brows can be something easily ignored if you have darker eyebrows anyway, but if yours are a mousy brown shade (like mine!) a pencil really helps to frame the face, sounds weird but true! This pencil twists at the top too so there's no need to worry about sharpening the end to get an even shape. I'm definitely going to bulk buy these!
For any of the listed products above visit the MAC website here or follow the links above.

I would love to hear your experience..
