Shoes Of The Day

I am ready for spring and summer :) I saw these cute pink/coral pumps at my local supermarket a few weeks ago and they are just summer in a shoe! They were cheap and probably not the best quality either, but the colour just makes me happy and brightens up any outfit, so I love them :)

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss

I have never been a much of a lipstick fan, I have always been more into lip gloss, but it is safe to say that I have become a fan now...at least a fan of this one shade from the Lasting Finish by Kate Moss line for Rimmel. I saw this mentioned in a video by Lisa Eldridge last year sometime and I thought I'd give it a try. I can honestly say that I have used it every day since I got it. Obviously I don't have much to compare it to in terms of staying power, but I have been very impressed as it manages to stay on even after my morning coffee and well into the day ;)
But what really got me is the shade. I am very much a fan of a neutral lip and have previously tired a bunch of different nude shades to see if I could jump on the lipstick-wagon, but I almost always find them to be too flat or too bland. This one however is just the perfect shade of pink, but still has the "nude" feel/look to it. So over all I think this is a really great lipstick in terms of staying power and pigmentation, but the shade is what I am really in love with...it really is the perfect colour :)

I always add a little bit of my trusted Stila silk shimmer luxe lip gloss in Kitten to make it pop :)

Samoa Silk by MAC

Samoa Silk is my latest MAC purchase. This is one of their Velux shades, meaning that it has a matte silky finish, is very pigmented and has a very fine texture. This colour is kind of hard to describe...I cannot decide if it's peachy or orange :) In any case I really like it and think it will work perfectly as a more subtle warm crease colour. I have also worn it all over the lid with MAC's Texture in the "outer v" as I think those two shades compliment each other really well. Basically Samoa Silk is a great and versatile matte shade :)

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm

It's official, I am addicted to the Burt's Bees tinted lip balm in Honeysuckle! I bought this on a whim, as I'm not normally a huge fan of lip balms, I tend to prefer gloss or glaze. But around Christmas I got a Clinique Chubby stick, which also qualifies as a tinted lip balm and I love it. Balms are perfect for the cold Scandinavian Winters, where my lips tend to dry up, to the point of being almost painful. The lip balms I have gotten in the past are just the regular "white" ones and they aren't really all the sexy are they?! But these tinted ones are just fantastic. From Burt's Bees my favourite is most definitely Honeysuckle, I love the "pink" shade, but also that it's still nude and sheer in its colour. In terms of pigmentation it is pretty sheer, so don't expect "full coverage", but it's noticeable. I guess the staying power in terms of the colour could be better, I feel that the wax stays on even if the shade has gone a bit, but hey I'll take any excuse to re-apply ;) On top of all of this it is made with 100% natural ingredients incl. coconut oil and shea butter, so just an all-round great product for your lips. 

PS: I found a UK website that sell them for about half price, compared to here and even better they offer free shipping to Denmark...win/win I say :)

Expensive Pink by MAC

I recently treated myself to the fabulous Expensive Pink eye shadow from MAC. The colour really reminds me of Rubenesque, which is one of my all-time favourite MAC colours. This is one of the velux pearl shades, so it has metallic shimmer and a high-shine pearl finish. Just such a pretty colour, perhaps a bit redundant to mention that it has great pigmentation and colour payoff ...like any other MAC eye shadow :)
