Hot and Not - September '09

Hey guys,

Just a little post with my Hot and Not list.This details whats in and out in my life.


Bourjois Metalize eye khol pencils. These are AMAZING! Long lasting and in awesome colours. I have a turqoise which I use to line my waterline when I wear my 'boring work makeup'. It really adds something to the look. The best thing is no eye bogeys or panda eyes. Top, top product!

Maybelline Coloursensational Ambre Rose lip stick. This lippy is getting a lot of coverage in blog land and I can see why. A fab rosey pink which glides on the lips. It suits my pale skintone and not many pinks do! And the price tag is very attractive....

Palmers cocoa butter with olive oil body butter. This version of the old cocoa butter is just as good. Very soothing and my skin feels moisturised all day.

Saturday night tv. Strictly come dancing, X factor and now the cult 'Hole in the wall'. All I need is Total wipeout and my saturday nights are complete! Lol


Bourjois Effet 3D Max lip gloss. Now I am a 'glass half full' kinda girl and don't like to hate something. While the lip gloss is fab (I have a lovely plummy red) the applicator is awful. It is a small teardrop plastic applicator with 'wells' to store the gloss. It does not work! You cannot reapply a second coat because the plastic applicator removes the first coat-RRRRRrrrrrrr! I refuse to use it now and I apply with a lip brush.

Spots,zits,blemishes,pimples whatever you wish to call them. I HATE them! I am prone to a breakout around my 'monthlys'. Tea tree oil is my saviour combined with clean and clear oil free moisturiser. Failing that tootpaste over night. It works!

Let me know your 'Ins' and 'outs'..

Big hugs xx


  1. I really, really wanted to purchase Ambre Rose by Maybelline but because of my olive skin tone, it doesn't look right on me. :(

    But yeeeah, at the moment I'm loving Elf mineral shadows, Elf studio contouring brush, Benefit Bad Gal liner and Collection 2000's Vinyl lash extension mascara. :)

    Outs - Zits. The price tag of NARS and MAC. The cold weather. Boo to Autumn!


  2. Hey!
    You should try and grab Mac's 'Colour crafted' lip stick. It would be such an awesome colour against olive skin. It is LE ut I saw one on Ebay the other day. Or you could use a nude brown lipliner and Ambre Rose over the top. That would look lovely too.

    I adore Elf too and Badgal liner (esp. the waterproof one) is a staple in my make up bag!

    I hate the prices too...... xx
