The best lipstick....EVER

I know that the title of this post is a very big statement especially as I am a major lover of mac lipsticks. But seriously. Sometimes when I'm at home alone I try this lipstick on just cos I love it SO much. Sad I know but it's true. I am of course talking about Mac Rebel. I saw this on quiet a few blogs and I thought I'm just going to have to try it. So one snowy cold morning in December I logged onto Debenhams website and to my delight they had 10% off. So I paid £12.60 and got free delivery. This is a bold move for me as usually I would never buy anything without swatching it. The delivery only took 2 days which I was really impressed with as it was free. It of course came in the standard mac packaging which of course I love and I couldn't wait to swatch it. As I was at work I did it on my hand and oh my god. I was shocked. At first I thought I am never actually going to wear this. However when I went home I tired it straight on my lips and I fell in love and I've never actually looked back. It's a beautiful dark plum. I wore it on my Christmas night out with my friends and it lasted all night. I did still apply it as that's just the kind of girl I am. Have you tried Rebel? How did you first find it? (Please excuse the photo of me. It was one of those. 'We took pictures last night?' moments when I saw it)

Top 12 beauty products of 2012

It feels like forever I haven't blogged. I've been so busy with work and a social life that I feel like I've forgotten my secret love of blogging. Well I'm back and feel like I have a million things to tell you. 

I thought a good way to break it back in is my top 12 of 2012. It should of been top 10 but I just couldn't pick so I made a decisions to increase the number to 12. 

2012 what a year. I feel like I've blinked and I've missed it. It was my first full year in my house which I totally have loved. It still feels mad that I live here but I've got used to saying home is my new house and not my actual parents home. I went from being 21 to 22 and generally had an amazing time. 

On to my beauty products.... 

In no particular order, 

Clarasonic Mia  
HOW someone please tell me WHY I waited till September to put my hand in my pocket and buy this? It is my favourite part of my skincare routine and my skin doesn't feel clean unless I have used this. 

Urban Decay All nighter 
This literally keeps my make up stay put all day. I use it every day now and couldn't imagine my make up routine without it now. 

Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation (pebble) 
This is a rediscovery, whilst on holiday I had misplaced my MAC studio fix foundation and I ran to the shop on board the ship (I was on a cruise) and the lady recommended me this one I hadn't used it in a long time so thought why not. Then I found my MAC foundation in my bag. This is actually my second bottle and I just find this foundation makes my skin look healthy and natural. 

OPI Nail Envy 
This is so versatile. I use it as a base coat, a top coat and a nail treatment. My nails know when I haven't used it in a while. 

OPI My Private Jet
I 100% have Catrine from Unnaked Nails to thank for this one. This has been my 'go to' colour. If  I don't know what colour to paint my nails. This is what I go for. 

Garnier Body moisturiser 
All summer all autumn and all winter this has been amazing it has kept my skin so soft. 

OPI Hight intensity hand and nail cream 
Soft and silky and this is how it leaves my hands. 

L'oreal self tanning mist
The lazy girls tan is the best way to describe this. When I just can't be bothered to whip out the latex gloves (to apply my lotion tan) I just spray this all over my body and it really is the best lazy tan result no streaks and it's all even. 

MAC blusher Plum foolery 
This has been in my life for over 5 years. Yes that is the long relationship I have ever had with anything EVER. But it is my all time favourite colour. 

MAC pro sculpt in Pure Sculpture and Accentuate 
As you can see I've hit the pan and I haven't got a back up. I love sculpting my face and trying to look like Kim K but it never works. If anyone knows of anything similar please let me know I need to have something similar to this is my life. 

What are your favourites of last year?
