Battle Of The MAC Pinks/Pinky Nude Lipsticks

Im a huge fan of the pinky/pinky nudes and although these 4 colours are quite similar they are also so different if that makes sense.Angel and Creme Cup are pretty close,I can almost say they are dupes,Cut-ster and Hue are also very similar although Cut-Ster has a more lipglossy feel than a lipstick and it also has some added glitter aswell as being much more sheerer than Hue.Overall these 4 would have to be in my top10 favorite lipsticks,and yes I say 10 cause aswell as nailpolish I also have a hugeee weakness for lipstick!

Whats you favorite Lipstick Brand/Colour?
Are you after a certain swatch let me know in the comments and ill see if I have it!

Liz Earle Foot Care Range + Kits and Gifts

Hi ladies
I'm back with another review on the Liz Earle foot care range.The range consists of 3 main products for perfectly pampered feet,great for a at home pedi and it really does end up working out cheaper.So lets get started!

Foot Scrub
I'm the type of person who has really rough feet,I have no idea why maybe its from the wrong shoes or something but all I know is they are so rough they are sharp and they are as dry as hell,now I will admit I'm a bit of a tight bum when it comes to spending 30 to 40 dollars on a pedi so when I received the foot scrub I was really happy.I tried it a few times and I did notice a huge difference but unfortunately my feet are still rough but I do think if I continue to use the foot scrub they will improve ill keep you posted.

Liz Earle says
"Our new Foot Scrub, containing natural pumice, gently yet intensively exfoliates the rough skin on your feet to leave them smooth and buffed to perfection. Includes softening avocado and wheatgerm oils and the invigorating aromas of peppermint and rosemary essential oils for sweet-smelling feet."

Foot Repair Moisturiser
The thing that one me over with this one is that it smelt like peppermint and for me peppermint totally makes me feel refreshed and I love that cooling feeling.The moisturiser leaves you feet feeling smooth and pampered, but feels even better when someone else is massaging it into those tired feet =p

Liz Earle says
"Our refreshing peppermint-scented Foot Repair Moisturiser uses a blend of shea butter, skin-softening wheatgerm oil and avocado oil to intensively moisturise the driest of skins. Best of all, it sinks in fast so won't leave feet feeling greasy."

Foot Spritzer
Now this is something you don't see very often a foot spritzer,I've seen plenty of face spritzers but never a actual foot spritzer which makes extra special, I know for the ladies on the other side of the world its Summer over there so this would be perfect for those hot and sticky days just spray your feet once and have instant refreshed feet. This is great for keeping in the hand bag.But get in quick ladies cause this one is only available until September the 5th 2010 while stocks last.

Liz Earle says
"Spritz your feet, legs and ankles with a cooling and invigorating burst of 9 essential oils including rosemary, spearmint and peppermint. This fast-drying spray fights odour-causing bacteria to help keep skin fresh."

And finally ladies I also wanted to bring your attention to Liz Earle's Kits and Gifts, there perfect for trying out sample sizes, and even prettier as gifts, all Liz Earle's products come beautifully wrapped and some of them even come in beautiful little bags perfect for travelling,in the hand bag or just to look pretty.This one is the New Flight Essentials Kit consisting of 4 great products to help your skin through the air

Liz Earle says
"Air travel can take its toll on your skin, so make sure you stay refreshed and hydrated before, during and after your trip with our new Flight Essentials Kit. Includes four of our most popular beauty must-haves in cabin-friendly sizes."

NYX Eyeshadow Bases My Opinion And Swatches

Hi ladies
I purchased these eyeshadow bases a few months ago off Cherry Culture after searching for a cheap eyeshadow base for ages,I had heard mostly good reviews and since I cant get my hands on Urban Decay Primer Potion I thought why not.They each cost $6.00USD which ends up working out to be $7 dollars something AUD,I've never actually seen them sold in Australia which is typical cause lets face it when does Aus actually have half the makeup brands the international ladies have so of course purchasing online was a must.There was 3 shades to choose from a White,Pearl and Skin tone since I already have a coastal scents white gel liner which works just as good as a base,I opted for the Pearl and Skin tone shades.

They both have the same feel as a concealer in a jar,the Pearl shade being a little less thick than the Skin tone,the Pearl is exactly like a cream based eyeshadow and the Skin tone feeling more like a concealer than a shadow base,I have to say out of the two I preferred the Pearl 100x more,it glided on smoothly although I will add it is extremely sparkly and well pearly I tried a blue shadow over the pearl and it did make the blue pop alot more I'm guessing due to all the shimmer of the base,I pulled the look off for about 7hours due to going to the beach,mind you I didn't swim but I was sitting in the boiling sun for that long.As for the skin tone base as you will see from the swatches below its way off my skin tone colour and the consistency was just so thick,I mean really thick but It did do its job and stay on for quite a few hours.

NYX Says
WHITE: Apply before eye shadows for 100x's vivid color
PEARL: Apply before eye shadows with pearl and iridescent for a 100x's pearlized effects
SKIN TONE: Apply before eye shadows to hold, intensify, and make eye shadow last longer.

Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Mineral Oil, Microcrystalline Wax, Silica (and) Methicone, BHT, Dipentaerythrityl Hexahydroxystearate/Hexastearate/Hexarosinate,Ricinus,Communic,(Castor) Seed Oil, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Octyldodecyl Myristate, Polyethylene, Fragrance, Butylparaben, Nylon-66, Ceresin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Polyethylene, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Overall I would say give them a go,for the price you really cant complain, and a jar like that is going to last for ages my pick would be to go for either the pearl or white only because I didn't like the thickness of the skin tone shade and cause personally it was way off my actual skin tone.But if you like a thick base than go for it.The pearl shade could also quite easily work as a highlight on the brow bone or even on the inner corners of the eyes to give that added pop.

Rating 7/10

So ladies have any of you tried the NYX bases? Whats you favorite ES base?
