Spring Vision Wishlist

Hello there!

I have to say I am extremely excited for Spring this year. I have a vision of myself at a picnic in the sun wearing the perfect outfit. But first I have to accumulate all of the stuff to achieve my vision. So I thought I would create a wishlist for you.

ASOS Stripy Long Sleeved Top - I have been wanting a long sleeved top like this for a while now; and you may be thinking "that's a pretty standard item of clothing why would you want one of them?" Well I have always loved black and white striped clothing like this and recently I just haven't been buying them. So this Spring I'm going to buy plenty of stripy tops to make up for my slight lacking in that department.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - Bright Orange-Red - Bring on the next part of my Spring Vision. Bright matte orange lips and stripy tops? Hello! Now I'm not exactly sure whether I can pull off such a bright colour but I'm going to try. This Kat Von D liquid lipstick is super bright and very Spring/Summer appropriate. However it is a little pricey. Any suggestions in the comments about a cheaper option would be much appreciated

TopShop Pelaxed Utility Trousers - Black - These trousers are gorgeous! They are just amazing. The rips in the knees make them cool. The tailored style makes them formal. The big pockets make them boyish and practical. They are just gorgeous! And because there 5/6 length (??????? not 3/4 so what are they then? 5/6) they are going to keep you warm but not to hot.

Desert Boots - I know what your thinking. Desert boots seriously? They are like so last summer! Well I know but I blooming couldn't find a single pair last year that fitted or that I liked. There was a desert boot famine. But I've finally found them. Thats all I'm saying.

H&M hat - You know how Zoe and Gabby are always rocking the floppy hats. Well I kinda like the idea and I've been eyeing up this simple one from H&M for a while now. Although I do have a slight problem. I have a huge head. It never fits in anything. Do you know of any places that sell hats not made for mice?

TheBarry M Nail Polishes

Hello there!!

Now we all know what a Barry M nail polish is and we have all read about a squibillion reviews on them but..... I'm doing this anyways.

417 Carousel Limited Edition
 This nail polish was given to me quite recently and it is beautiful. The colour itself is a stunning bright coral with gold duo-chrome shimmers. It applies well. It's a 1 coat wonder (whoop whoop) and would look amazing at the pool side in summer.

306 Blueberry Ice-Cream and 308 Berry Ice-Cream
These are some of my favourite nail polishes for spring time as they are really cute pastel colours. These apply really well and you can get away with 1 or 2 coats with these. They also have good stay power and will last for 5-6 days without chipping if you apply them properly. 

These are from the infamous Gelly Hi-Shine collection and are amazing. They stay on the nails for atleast a week without chipping and are a dream to apply. I've had Lychee on my nails for about 2 weeks now and it only started chipping on Thursday. The colour Guava is one of my favourites and looks incredible with a tan.

This Polish is from the Chameleon range. These nail polishes change colour  and you would think they would be awesome..... Uhuh. Not quite. The nail polish chipped after my first day of wearing it and it turns from a gorgeous silvery lilac to just a very ordinary silver. Not quite the amazingness I was expecting.

The Plum Lips Edit

Hello Humphers!
Last post I did I promised a Plum Lip post on my favourite plum wintery colours so here we are!!

Miss Sporty Perfect Colour Lipstick 033 Miss Purple

This colour is very glittery so if your not into glitz then move on.
However this lipstick is the perfect Pinky, Plummy, Purple. It smells amazing (watermelon...mmmm...) and it lasts quite a while I would say 2-3 hours which is very good for a lipstick that only costs £2.59! You can feel the glitter on your lips but I kinda like it. But you know personal taste and what not.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick 330 Sloane's Plum

This is by far the best lipstick I own although unfortunately I only own this one very daring colour. It is an extremely deep plum which is almost black. The lipstick itself is extremely creamy and moisturising (eh duh moisture renew lipstick). These don't get nearly enough praise on the internet! 

My Mum and Dad kindly gave this to me for Christmas and I've been wearing it non stop. The colour payoff is immaculate. This shade is a pretty rosey-plum and is a very wearable colour. So if your not keen on the WOWMYLIFE colours this is a good option and they are very cheap. The product comes with a sealing lipbalm on the end. This really does make a difference as when I just wear the product on its own it doesn't  last as long.

                                          17 Lasting Fix Lipstick Mulled Wine (discontinued)

This is the first ever lipstick I owned and it's done me a good 4 years of service. The colour is a gorgeous reddy pinky plum and is beautiful with sparkly champagne eyes. I sometimes wear this with a black lipliner or eyeliner underneath to make a lovely deep plummy black. Unfortunately the range is discontinued so you can't get your hands on one of these but I thought I would feature it anyways.

Kate Moss Lipstick 07 (dissapeared of the internet)

For some reason unknown to human since this shade has been discontinued (I only found this out like 3 seconds ago). However do not be disheartened young chaps because this lipstick had a good life, short but very sweet. This lipstick is a very nudey plum. It's verging on Kylie Jenner but is just a little darker and deeper. The lipstick itself as always is amazing with the Kate Moss collection. The finish isn't matte but not glossy. A sort of satin finish but is very moisturising and comfortable on the lips

This is the final product and is very pretty. The gloss itself is a pinky plummy colour and is very glossy. It sticks to lips well. The only down side is the annoying squeezy tube it comes in as it likes itself a bit of product. Although for a kids lipgloss it isn't bad.

PS. it smells amazing!!!
