I ordered some MAC products online last week since every time I go to the MAC store they never have the things I wanted in stock. The package finally came yesterday afternoon :D

From Left - Right: MAC Brush Cleanser (RRP: £8), MAC Moisturelush Cream (RRP: £22), MAC Viva Glam Cyndi (RRP: £12.50) & MAC Matte Cream (RRP: £13.50) all from http://www.maccosmetics.co.uk/

I had to buy some more brush cleanser as I don't have much left. I was so excited to try out the lipstick and the moisturiser. I still haven't tried the Matte Cream.

Left - MAC Viva Glam Gaga & Right - MAC Viva Glam Cyndi

I know there are so many reviews on these lipsticks but here are the swatches below :)

I got the Gaga lipstick when it first came out and loved it! As you can see, it is a baby pink colour. I heard from lollipop86 that Lady Gaga used to love a specific lipstick from MAC and used to wear it all the time. It was the MAC Pink Nouveau Lipstick and so MAC made the Viva Glam Gaga similar to that colour :) Anyway, when I tried to get the Cyndi lipstick, it was out of stock so I had to get it online after several times of going back in to the store asking if it's back in stock or not. It is a darker coral colour. I love both the lipsticks :) Though I do prefer the Gaga lipstick but the Cyndi lipstick is more natural and more wearable colour for me.

Which one do you prefer?

So I decided to go on a shopping spree yesterday evening after a long day...I went to Boots and Superdrugs but there was nothing new. But I did go to Urban Decay and I was debating whether to buy the Eye Shadow Primer Potion (Sin). The shimmer were oh-so-lovely! I already have the normal primer potion...so unsure at the moment.

Anyways I did head into MAC and I wanted to get a few things but they didn't have anything in stock. So I only ended up buying the MAC Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder.

From the previous powders that I have bought, this one seems quite small. But I can't wait to try it out :)

Anyways, I also wanted to buy a pair of sandals and a pair of wedges. But only ended up buying a pair of sandals from Topshop.

Hysteria Flower Sandals (RRP: £28) http://www.topshop.co.uk/)

I love these sandals! :D It's different compared to other ones. I just love the flowers that's on them.

Have a great Sunday!

Lush - Lip Scrub

From Left - Right: Bubblegum, Sweet Lips & Mint Julips (RRP: £4.50 each from http://www.lush.co.uk/)

So I have got these scrubs about a week ago. I initially thought these were okay as it didn't scrub well on dry lips. But when I put a bit of water or vaseline on my lips, It works like wonders! These lip scrubs are amazing! The smell of these scrubs are so good just like the names :) and it taste so good too! (it has caster sugar and organic jojoba oil so it is safe to eat these :D)

Before these scrubs I would just use vaseline and use my toothbrush to scrub my lips, but I thought it was a bit too harsh. The sugar that's in the scrub is exfoliating enough to remove the dead skin that's on the lips keeping them nice and smooth.

yay for soft lips! :)
