Five Things I Love Friday & Five Blogs I Love Friday 029.

One. Pretty much everything from the new Joe Browns catalogue!

Joe browns has been one of my favourite online stores for years and years now and I still absolutely adore the pieces they come out with. This season is no exception and I'm finding myself lusting after more and more each time I have a look around the website! I would adore to have a huge Joe Browns spending spree and I know I'd have lots of fun styling the pieces afterwards too! They are well and truly making me excited for Spring and Summer!

My boyfriend got me this DVD for Valentine's Day and I think I've watched it about a million times already! I absolutely love Adele, I'm not hugely into music, especially current music, but I could listen to Adele sing all day long. Plus I think she's absolutely stunning and her make up always looks perfect!

Three. The 8mm iPhone/iPad app! 
Oh my gosh why did I not discover this app sooner? I'm absolutely loving playing around with the different effects and I'll be making a few short videos using it like this one I made of Ralphie. I've always wanted to do vlog type videos but talking to the camera while I'm out and about doesn't seem too appealing to me, I'm super shy and would feel SO awkward, but this way I'll get to share some of my adventures with added vintage effects! Hopefully my editing skills will improve with the more videos I make, I really want to learn more about video editing because I haven't really done much of it since College & I really miss it! These videos will all be up on my Vimeo page because I'll be putting the visuals to music and I don't have any nifty connections to any bands so all the songs will be copyrighted, otherwise I'd pop them up on my YouTube channel.

Four. The Clarisonic Mia

I am literally so excited to finally have a Clarisonic after hearing so much about them! Now, I'm definitely not in a position to say too much about it right now considering I've only had it for a couple of days but I'm looking forward to seeing if it makes any difference to the appearance of my skin in the long term. It makes some high claims, so I do have pretty high expectations, but if it doesn't live up to them I won't be too disappointed. I purchased mine from Amazon after Charli gave me a heads up on an extremely good deal! Thank you so much, Charli!

Five. The Orphan's Arms Clothing. 

On my last Five Things I Love Friday post I mentioned how much I love the Wildfox jumpers but would never be able to spend almost £100 on one and I have searched and searched but I just can't find an alternative that has jumpers with the same sort of shape and cut as Wildfox. A lovely girl called Amy recommended I check out a store called The Orphan's Arms and although they are quite different to Wildfox, I have fallen in love with some of their pieces! They have a bigcartel store which is where I purchased my jumper from and they also have some pieces up on ASOS! I am massively lusting after the Widows Walk pullover! I'm hugely into comfortable clothes at the moment so I discovered these jumpers at the perfect time!

Four. A Rosie Outlook. Five. Afeitar.

What have you been loving this week?

Current Top Ten Favourite Lipsticks.

Over the past couple of months I've really been getting much more into lip products & sadly for my bank balance, I currently have a wishlist almost as long as my arm full of MAC lipsticks. I never used to really understand the hype surrounding MAC lipsticks but now I totally get it! Perhaps I'll just have to treat myself occasionally!

After seeing Louise from Sprinkle Of Glitter do a video about her favourite lipsticks I was super inspired to do the same! I popped a video up on my YouTube channel which I will embed at the end of this blog post incase you'd like to see it, but I also couldn't resist snapping a few pictures!
Beehive from 17 cosmetics is the perfect 'my lips but better' kind of shade. It's such a wearable colour that will quite literally go with any make up look and the formula is just beautiful, leaving behind a glossy finish to the lips - so no need to faff around with an extra lipgloss over the top! Perfect low maintenance make up!

Viva Glam Cyndi from MAC is one that I won't talk about too much because it was limited edition and no longer available, which I'm super sad about. This is probably one of my all time favourite lipstick shades and I'm currently kicking myself for not picking up approximately twelve million back ups. I really need to find a dupe for this shade although I have a feeling I'll never find anything quite as nice as Cyndi!

Illamasqua's Fable was, I think, my first ever high end make up purchase and I still love it just as much now as I did when I first got it. I don't reach for it all the time because it is very matte which is a finish that I find quite difficult to work with, but, the colour is just the most perfect warm pink. This shade will always hold a special place in my heart!

Another shade from Illamasqua making its way into my top ten is called Obey and this is the perfect peachy pink shade. Gosh, Illamasqua know how to make some amazing colours! As soon as summer rolls around I'll be wearing this non stop!

Again, I won't talk about this lipstick, which is Pillow Talk from Topshop Make Up, for long because it's limited edition but I will say that this is a super pretty classic baby pink shade with a truly lovely formulation. I wish this wasn't limited edition because I know how many people adore this lipstick!

This one is technically not a lipstick so I think I may be cheating slightly but I'm just going to go with it! I really do love the Collection 2000 Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Creams and my favourite shade is called Fairy Cake. A muted coral pink, this is one of those colours that goes with so many different make up looks, and with a good lip balm underneath I really love the finish of these. They smell like cake too - yummy!

Revlon Pink Pout is a beautiful mid toned pink shade with slight purpley undertones and I absolutely adore this lipstick. It is a matte formulation but I don't find these to be anywhere near as matte as Illamasqua's so this is much easier for me to wear on a daily basis. It's not really drying at all which I was pleasantly surprised about, and the colour is just gorgeous!

Baby Pink from Revlon's ColorBurst line is a beautiful sheer glossy pink that you don't even have to think about when you're applying it. The packaging is lovely, the formula is pretty bloody amazing and the finish is extremely flattering on the lips. You definitely don't need an extra gloss over the top of this and the warm pink colour really helps to brighten up my entire complexion! Love it!

Including Lovelorn from MAC may be cheating slightly as I haven't had it for very long but it has fast become an all time favourite shade! This is a perfect every day lipstick shade for me and the lustre finish is my favourite - it's glossy but not too glossy and it lasts for a good amount of time so I don't have to reapply every 5 minutes. The colour is perfect, a mid toned blue pink that makes my teeth look whiter and my complexion brighter. Perfect!

Finally, I couldn't not include this in my favourites and it is the infamous Cherries in the Snow from Revlon. I don't think there's anything else I can say about this other than it is just absolutely perfect!
What are your favourite lipsticks? Are there any shades that you think I absolutely have to go and check out?

February GlossyBox.

It's that time of the month again, no not that time, it's GlossyBox♦ time! I always get a little excited when it's GlossyBox time because having a little surprise showing up at your door each month is really quite lovely. When I first opened up this months box I was a little bit ehh about its contents, I thought it was going to be one of those months where everything was nice, but nothing really stood out. Happily my first impressions were totally wrong and I'm actually really excited about a couple of the products, one of which has totally surprised even me!

The first product is one that I'm not overly excited about, I mean I'll definitely use it because I get through lotion like there's no tomorrow, but it doesn't seem like a wow product. The Como Shambhala Invigorate Body Lotion has a blend of essential oils within it that will apparently put me in 'a perfectly uplifted mood'. We shall see on that one, but it smells nice, the peppermint scent in this one really comes through as you massage this into the skin and although I'm not a lover of lavender, I actually don't mind it too much in this. The scent reminds me a lot of Neal's Yard products, which I adore, and although this is a light lotion it feels like it gives a nice amount of moisture. The full size 300ml bottle retails for £20.

Another product I'm not wowed by is the Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Relaxing Balm. It says it's an intense hydrating treatment for your hair but I have no idea how to use it because there aren't any instructions on the packaging. There's one of those infuriating 'peel here' labels on the back that I can never bloody peel, I've been sat here for a good 10 minutes trying to peel it but I can't and honestly, I'm not fussed about the product enough to research it at this present moment in time. I have extremely oily hair so I will be steering clear of this treatment, my mum however has claimed this as her own already so I will be passing it on to her, once I've figured out what she's supposed to do with it! The full size 200ml bottle retails for £15.25.

Now we move on to the product I'm intrigued by and it's the Magic Liquid Soap from Dr Bronner. From what I can tell this comes in many different scents and the one I got is the almond one. This smells exactly like Battenberg cake, so so lovely and it seems to be one of those multipurpose products that you can use on your face, body and hair. You have to make sure to dilute the product in water before using but I tell you what, I'm pretty excited to give this product a go. It's supposed to be much more gentle than regular soap and it hasn't been tested on animals - always a winner for me! This size, 59ml bottle retails for £1.99. Super affordable!

As soon as I saw there was a lipgloss in this months box I said 'ooooh lipgloss, pretty colour' before smearing a thick layer all over my lips. Then I thought 'oooh really pretty, oooh tastes kind of like cinnamon cake, ooooh TINGLY!' The gloss is by DuWop and this is one of their venom glosses in the shade Buttercup. One of DuWop's most famous products is their Lip Venom which is a lip plumping product and this lipgloss has some of that Lip Venom contained within it. It sure does make your lips tingle! I've tried similar products before but I can't say that any of them gave the tingly feeling they said, this one definitely does. It doesn't hurt, but you can definitely feel it. Next time I probably won't be applying such a thick layer but I can see me using this up quite quickly! The full size 10.4ml glosses retail for £16.

Lastly I have saved the product I'm most surprised by for last and that is a Pure Mineral Eyeshadow from BM Beauty. The colour I received is called Her Majesty and when I first saw it I thought 'ooh no, I won't be using that colour on my eyes'. And then I opened it and swatched it on my hand. Hello beautiful rosey/golden sheen I'll be using a lot of you! I'm not a fan of pigments, honestly, I'm so clumsy and I probably will end up making a huge mess with this but I don't care because it's so pretty! This won't be limited to just my eyes, I already have plans to use this on my cheeks too. Oh it's so pretty! The full size 2g pots of these shadows retail for £7.

Overall I'm really quite happy with this months offerings despite being slightly disappointed upon first glance. Sure there are two products I'm not thrilled with, but my excitement over the other three more than makes up for that. I'm off to go and research more about the Dr Bronner Magic Liquid Soap and then proceed to play with the rosey-gold shadow and make my lips tingle with the lipgloss! I'm like a child at Christmas time!

Are you subscribed to GlossyBox? What did you get in your box this month?
Has anyone tried any of these products before? If so, I'd love to know what you thought about them!

Would You Like To Advertise On Sailboat?

Last year I opened up a little piece of my sidebar to anyone who would like to advertise their blog or small business and I think the time is right to do it again!


Sailboat is a constantly expanding lifestyle blog featuring fashion,  beauty, photography and everything in between. It’s written by Jennie  May, a twenty two year old girl living in Derbyshire who’s not entirely  sure where her life is going but is happy to invite you all along on the  journey to find out.

Advertising. 

Whether you’re a boutique owner, fellow blogger, photographer or just a  generally amazing lovely person, if you think my readers would love to  know about you, email me for more information on my super reasonable  rates! Spots are really limited each month so please please please don’t  be shy to inquire!

Any money I do happen to generate from sponsorship will 100% be put into  advertising Sailboat on other blogs so in turn this little piece of the  internet will hopefully gain more traffic which will then benefit  any sponsors! I’d really love for everyone to gain something from this. 

I have 4 different advert sizes to choose from:





I will only have one extra large 175 x 215 spot available each month and  will be placed at the top of my sponsor section for the whole month and  one large 175 x 175 spot which will be placed directly under the extra  large sponsor should there be one that month. Adverts will be placed in  descending size order and each group will be rotated throughout the  month in order to gain maximum exposure for everyone. The larger your ad  size, the closer it will be to the top of the page. Don’t worry though;  I will not be accepting lots and lots of sponsors each month so if you  only want a small advert then you won’t be miles down the page, I  promise!

Each ad will be up for 30 days and I will happily offer a discount if you would like to advertise for multiple months. If you contact me between now and the end of February your advert will be up at the beginning of March, if you contact me after then your advert will go up at the start of April!

***
Like I said, if anyone were to be interested in sponsoring sailboat then any pennies made will be put into sponsoring sailboat on other blogs! I'm not out to make money for myself, I don't accept other forms of advertising or sponsored posts (not that I hate on those that do!), but I would like to try and turn this little piece of the Internet into something extra special & in turn share the love with some of you guys!

Thank you to absolutely everyone that's supported sailboat thus far! I really appreciate and adore every single one of you that reads my little ramblings and it wouldn't be quite the same without you lovelies! Honestly, thank you so much, you mean more to me than you could ever possibly imagine.

If you'd like to email me about absolutely anything at all then you can do so here:

Email me: sailorjennie@googlemail.com

I hope you're all having a wonderful Sunday morning! I'm about to head out to work but I'm thoroughly looking forward to 5pm when I shall be back at home all snuggled up in my pyjamas and drinking a huge mug of hot chocolate!

xoxo

P.S. Static adverts only please, I'm not a huge fan of blinkies!

Follow Your Heart & You'll End Up Exactly Where You're Supposed To Be.

Sometimes I need reminding, more than anyone else, that it's one hundred percent okay to do your own thing and to be yourself. As the months have gone by I have felt more and more out of the blogging loop & that sinking feeling of realising things have moved on without you is always a tough one to deal with. Last night I was halfway through writing a goodbye post when I realised that this doesn't have to be goodbye. Why would I give up on something that makes me happy? I truly don't want it to end. So it's not going to. It's just going to change a little bit.  Maybe you'll want to stick around, I truly hope you will, but if not then I understand.

Two years ago I was a very different person. I was incredibly lonely, not at all comfortable with who I was and desperately looking for somewhere to fit in, somewhere where I felt like I really belonged. Finding that in my 'real life' didn't happen so I took solace in this little piece of the internet and it changed me, completely for the better. Everyone and everything changes, if you're anything like me, change can be hard to take sometimes, but it's in learning to adapt that makes you appreciate things that little bit more than you used to.

When I popped up that little survey around Christmas time asking what you would like to see more of on my blog, an overwhelming amount of people responded with more make up posts. And that's understandable, that's probably why 80% of people chose to subscribe in the first place. I did start off as solely a beauty blog. That was where I was in my life at that point. I wanted to learn more about these magical products that could transform me, a very plain and slightly chubby girl with acne, into someone who felt pretty and confident. I was heavily reliant on make up at that point in my life. I would not leave the house without a full face and backcombed hair. It wasn't an option for me because without it, I didn't feel confident. I was putting so much emphasis on improving my physical appearance because I didn't know how to improve other aspects of my life. I had just dropped out of University, which was one of the most difficult decisions I've ever had to make, I had a job I absolutely detested and the love of my life was three hundred miles away. I felt stuck. I had absolutely nothing going for me and I didn't know how to change that.

Fast forward two years and I still love make up, I will never not love make up, but there's so much more I have to say, there's so much more happening in my life that I want to share. I just don't know if anybody is interested. Of course I write these posts for me, but I also write them for you. There was something about Sailboat that made you click the subscribe button and for that I am eternally grateful because it just means so much to me. The last thing I want is to lose you all. My life would be a more lonely place if I didn't have you. As ridiculous as that may sound, I don't care, because it's true. I don't have a million friends I can call and go out for coffee with, and I'm okay with that, I'm someone that's completely content with my own company, but without you guys I would have no one really to share good news with or to have a little rant to and talk things over with. What would I do without you? It's never been about having a million subscribers, I hope I haven't ever come across like that, I was just as over the moon when the first person clicked subscribe as I was when the thousandth person did. I love your sweet emails and I love your comments, which is why I have been trying to do more make up posts. Sometimes my heart is in them and sometimes I'd much rather be telling you all about what I did last Thursday afternoon.

I guess what I'm trying to ask is, is it okay to share those things with you as well? Would you like to see the silly videos I make with Ralphie, the ridiculous photographs I still take on Photobooth and what I did last week? Ninety percent of you hated my instagram posts but I loved writing them, I also loved compiling little wishlists to show what I was loving and not loving at that time. Writing about make up and beauty products will never get old to me, I will always love taking outfit photographs, but I would love to share so much more as well!
I really hope you'll stick around. I may not fit in completely with the 'beauty community' anymore, beauty blogging has changed more that I could ever say in the past two years, I don't think it's changed for the worse, it's just very different and I don't feel like I have anything new to offer it anymore. There are so many other girls doing it so much better than I ever did or ever could. And that's okay, I think they're amazing and talented and incredibly beautiful and they deserve all the success in the world, they truly do, because they work so hard!

I hope that in between outfit photographs and my ramblings about make up and other such pretty things, you'll still like the everyday life posts just as much. Sometimes you just have to follow your heart. I have learned that it's impossible for anyone to please everyone all of the time, and ultimately you have to do what will make you the happiest. Life is just too short for 'what if's?' and regrets. Follow your heart and you'll end up exactly where you're supposed to be.

With Love,
Jennie May.

Happy Valentine's Day, Whale You Be My Valentine?


I wanted to pop up a little post wishing you all a super Happy Valentine's Day! Valentine's is a funny little 'holiday' it's cute but silly at the same time. I hope that wherever you are, you get the opportunity to spend some quality time with someone you love, not neccessarily your other half, but a best friend, a parent, a sibling, just someone you really care for. Have a wonderful day!
With Love,

Fresh Valentine's Day Make Up!

When it comes to make up I'm someone that favours neutral shades to achieve a really fresh and awake look. I've never been one for smokey eyes so instead I like to focus on cheeks, lips and a flawless complexion. I don't think the boy and I are doing anything for Valentine's Day this year but if we were this is the make up look I would choose to wear!

There are four products I know I can rely on to last all day long and keep my skin looking flawless! The Satin Primer from Illamasqua is a miracle product if you have dry skin, popping a little of this on before foundation ensures that your base will last all day and not look cakey at all. The Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation is a brilliant product, it glides on and blends so perfectly into the skin that it's hard to see that you're even wearing foundation. The Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer does an amazing job at covering redness and dark circles and Benefit Boi-ing really helps perfect my skin that little bit more.

For eyes, although I don't like to use a lot of products, there are some I reach for to give me a really bright eyed and awake look. For oily eyelids like mine the Benefit Creaseless Cream shadows are incredible and keeping shadows on all day! Benefit's Eyebright pencil looks lovely in the lower waterline to completely brighten up any eye look. Shadow wise the lightest shade in this trio from The Body Shop is beautifully shimmery and looks super pretty all over the eyelid but I mainly focus this colour on the inner corners of my eyes where I get the darkest. NARS Etrusque eyeshadow is a beautiful gold that I like to wear to really make my blue eyes stand out. Mascara wise Peep Show from 17 cosmetics is my current favourite! It's super affordable and really makes my lashes look a million times better!

For the cheeks I decided to use pink shades and MAC Subtle Breeze mineralize blush is just perfect. It is quite matte so for a little bit of added shimmer I used a little bit of Blonde Mineralize Skinfinish from MAC because I'm a total sucker for shimmer! To me, my make up seems brighter and my complexion lifted when I have a bit of shimmer or sparkle on my cheeks!

Lastly on my lips I opted for Lovelorn lipstick from MAC. It's a pretty and super wearable mid tone pink shade with a lustre finish so it's not drying and leaves a beautiful sheen on the lips without the need for an extra gloss over the top! I was torn between this and Creme Cup from MAC but in the end Lovelorn won because it's that little bit brighter and makes a bit more of a statement without looking too much!

This kind of make up makes me feel girly and pretty without making me feel overdone or like I've tried too hard. Most importantly it's super quick to do so you get to spend less time in front of the mirror and more time out with your loved ones having a wonderful day!
Which products will you be using this Valentine's Day to achieve your perfect make up look?

Five Things I Love Friday & Five Blogs I Love Friday 028.

One. Wildfox Baggy Beach Jumpers.

Whilst on the hunt for cute loungewear, because I've realised I own no cute comfortable clothes other than pyjamas, I have fallen completely in love with the Wildfox Baggy Beach Jumpers. Now at a whopping £95 each there is no way I can justify purchasing one, even at 50% off my eyes would still water a bit at the checkout so I'm on the hunt for a more affordable alternative. So far I haven't found anything quite as lovely as these, so if anyone knows of anywhere that sells something similar, please please please point me in that direction!

Two. This bunny jumper!
This little guy totally reminds me of Ralphie, even down to the big expressive eyes! Bunny prints on items of clothing are mostly white, so I was pretty excited to see this black bunny face peeking back at me when I was browsing ASOS. I think I may have to purchase this the next time I find a good ASOS discount code floating around! 

Three. YouTube.
I am just loving YouTube right now, not only making videos but watching other people's! I think we're so lucky to have YouTube, anyone with a camera can upload something and get involved with a whole online community. Technology amazes me sometimes, it really does! 

Four. Bunny herds Sheep! 

I can totally imagine Ralphie doing this! He would have the time of his life chasing other animals around a field, he's constantly running around my feet trying to trip me over!


I may have gone a bit overboard with the amazing bunny things this week but bunnies are cute, so I'm hoping you forgive me! This bunny teapot is SO adorable, I would love to drink lots of cup of tea from this cutie, although I'd probably be too protective over it and never let anyone touch it in case it got broken. I totally have what I like to call 'only child syndrome' over my stuff, I've always been very conscious of who I let borrow or even touch anything that I own. Need to work on that one, still, at almost twenty three years old!


What have you been loving lately? Any absolute favourite blogs? - I always love discovering new ones!

MAC Naturally Collection Purchases & Two Lipsticks!

If you follow me on twitter then you'll know that I was constantly asking when the Naturally Collection from MAC would finally hurry up and make it to the UK, so it's pretty safe to say I was just a little bit excited! Now I'm not a huge MAC collection person, I like MAC but the amount of collections they release can be a bit overwhelming and if I got excited about each one, I would have no money left at all! I like make up, but I'm not into crazy colours and I'm certainly not a make up artist so when a collection packed full of natural and neutral shades comes around, it grabs my attention! Usually when I do let myself get excited about a collection I seem to talk myself out of purchasing anything, but this time I went a tad crazy! Oops...
(L) MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Redhead. (R) MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Blonde.

Blonde Mineralize Skinfinish.
The product that first got me excited about the Naturally Collection is one of the Mineralize Skinfinishes in the shade Blonde. Described as a soft pink to rose degrade, when swirled together this gives the most beautiful shimmery pink colour to the cheeks and on my skintone, this works as a gorgeous blush. If you don't like shimmery cheek products it's safe to say you won't like this, but if you do I think this is something you would just adore!
Redhead Mineralize Skinfinish.

The second Mineralize Skinfinish in the collection, which is called Redhead is one that I initially wasn't going to purchase at all but I'm so happy that I did because it's beautiful. I accidentally smashed mine yesterday which I'm so sad about, but I immediately went online to purchase another one so I guess that shows how much I love this shade!
(L) Fresh Honey Mineralize Blush. (R) Subtle Breeze Mineralize Blush.

The next items I fell in love with were two of the Mineralize Blushes. I had never tried this particular kind of blush from MAC but after reading reviews I was intrigued that a lot of people were saying that these are quite matte and with the amount of shimmer in the two Mineralize Skinfinishes, I thought some matte shades would make a nice contrast!
Fresh Honey.

The first shade I was drawn towards is called Fresh Honey and it's the most beautiful peach shade that I'm so happy to have in my collection. A perfect peach powder blusher is something I've found difficult to find and I think this would look lovely over MAC Something Special Cremeblend Blush, and you all know how much I love mixing and matching blush shades! I'm obsessed!
Subtle Breeze.

The other shade I just had to have is called Subtle Breeze and this is a fairly simple blue toned pink which I absolutely adore. This is one of those super easy to wear shades and although I have a fair amount of make up, I do have a lot that I just don't use for various reasons. I'm trying to streamline my collection and only purchase new products that I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of, because ultimately I do buy make up to use it, not just to have it sit there. A classic pink will always get a lot of love from me!

MAC Fresh Air Tinted Lipglass.
The last item I got from the Naturally Collection is one of the tinted lipglasses and it's called Fresh Air. I know that tinted lipglasses seem to be a love or hate item and I'm happy to say I'm on the love side of that fence. Sure it's a bit sticky but I actually don't mind that and this shade is a pretty light pink shade that looks really natural on the lips. I really like it, but do bear in mind I'm not a huge lipgloss person and don't have many others to compare this one too! I do think £13 is a bit pricey though!
(L) MAC Creme Cup. (R) MAC Lovelorn.

Somehow two of the lipsticks from the permanent line found their way into my order... whoops! I have no idea how that happened *innocent face*. No, I hear people talk about different MAC lipsticks all the time and how much they love them and I really wanted to try a couple out. The only other MAC lipsticks I have are the Viva Glam Gaga & Cyndi and I don't let myself use them a lot because they were limited edition!
Lips: MAC Creme Cup Lipstick.
The first shade I went for is Creme Cup which I know is amazingly popular with so many people, so I figured I'd really love it too! So far, I've not used it a lot so I can't really make a totally fair judgement, the cremesheen formula isn't my favourite but that may have something to do with the fact it's blimmin' freezing here right now and I know that cremesheen's tend to melt in the hot weather! Creme cup is a beautiful light pink shade, definitely one of those lipsticks you don't need to think about because it'll go with anything!

Lips: MAC Lovelorn Lipstick.
The second shade I got is called Lovelorn which is a lustre finish and oh my gosh, I'm in love with this shade! It's a slightly deeper pink shade than Creme Cup but again, is so easy to wear and will go with so many looks! I think the lustre finish is my favourite, it's glossy but you can still build up the colour quickly which I love!

So those were all of my MAC purchases, I can't lie, there are some others I would have liked to have got from the Naturally Collection but I find with MAC that the money quickly adds up so I had to be sensible. Now, I'm just hoping that I don't love anything from future MAC collections for a little while!

Did you get anything from the Naturally Collection? What's your must have make up item from MAC
