Lipstick Love: Avon 'Pink Holiday'







Surprise,surprise! another pink lipstick! This one's from Avon's color trend line and it's called pink holiday.It's my favourite from this line,at least among the ones I own.Not too bright not too pale,it's perfect for day or night,esp if you want to balance heavy eye makeup.One of the cutest pinks around but its disadvantage is it doesn't last too long. Take care,lovelies!    xoxoxo

Mani(c) Monday: Burgundy/Dark Cherry nails

This is a polish I had in my nail polish drawer and can't remember when or where I bought it from; I don't even remember ever putting it on. But since it matched my burgundy 'theme' today in both my outfit and my acessories of choice,I decided to give it a go. Since the brand doesn't really say anything to me,I didn't expect much.To my surprise I loved it! The only thing I didn't like about  it is that it has a rather strong smell when you apply it. But it definitely has a lot more pros! The brush is not too thick and applies the colour evenly.I only needed two coats for an intense colour and it is super smooth and glides on perfectly.Furthermore it is really shiny.The colour is darker than on the photos,the flash makes it appear more red than is actually is.It is a gorgeous burgundy/dark cherry red colour. What do you think? xoxoxo
ps. check out my other burgundy/oxblood nails post here and tell me which nails you like best!

Wanted: cateye sunglasses

I've been resisting the cateye trend for so long beacuse I don't really think they suit my face shape but lately I've spotted this pair that has gone on my 'items I like' board on pinterest! They cost next to nothing so I can try the look without the guilt accompanying an expensive purchase that you regret a month later!! If only I could find them...I went a few days ago determined to buy them but they weren't in the store and I ended up buying other things...Check out Dena from Stylelimelight wearing them! You can visit her blog here  xoxoxo

Lipstick Love: Avon 'Pink Kiss'








This is my first purchase from the Colour Style lipstick line from Avon. The main feature is that it is a travel size miniature lipstick that can fit anywhere,even in the tiniest purse,as far as its package is concerned but it still has the same amount of product like an ordinary lipstick. In the photos you can see it next to another lipstick.Notice how much less space the packaging takes! The lipstick itself is the standard size! How cool is that?! Adorable!! The colour is a gorgeous bubblegum pink,that is semi-sheer. Haven't tried it on yet,will post more details as soon as I do. What do you think of pink lipstick? It's always a favourite of mine even I've been somewhat obsessed with dark lips lately!  xoxoxo

Mani(c) Monday: Black with a twist







I love these nails so much,first time I saw them was on Pinterest I think and I wanted to recreate this look ever since.Actually I fisrt tried it months ago but didn't take any photos! Here's the documented version!
I used two nail polishes, a matte black by Avon and a nail art polish with a thin brush for the shiny tips.You can also use a top matte coat on a regular black nail polish.I was in a bit of a hurry when I did them so they're not perfect but I still like the outcome.Love it or hate it? Tell me what you think! xoxoxo
