MAC Satin Lipstick in Amorous Swatch & Review






Mac lipsticks are somewhat coveted in the beauty blogger world, and I can see why!

This is Amorous, a beautiful autumnal raspberry red shade which has a tinge of pink to it. MAC describe it as a "Lovestruck Cranberry"- Cranberry, Rasperry, it's all the same, right?

 It's a satin finish, which is described by MAC as: "Colour-rich. Soft satin, semi-matte finish. Conditions while adding intense colour." - I must say, I agree. It's shiny without being too greasy, and its pigmentation is divine.

In terms of wear time I got around 3-4 hours of this without having to top it up. I found it didn't dry my lips out, but I'd reccomend buffing your lips and applying a good lipbalm before you wear it anyway.

All in all, a fabulous lipstick and one I will be going back to time and time again!

You can buy Amorous from any MAC store or on the MAC website.

American Apparel - Nail Laqueur in Violet Panache






 This is my first American Apparel nail polish, and I must say, I'm impressed!

Violet Panace is a beautiful royal purple jelly (think Cadburys wrappers!) laden with violet and pink shimmer. It takes around 3 coats to build it up to full opacity.

I have worn this with topcoat in these pictures, but it's perfectly smooth and glossy on its own. This is such a beautiful polish, It's so regal and eye-catching!

American Apparel Nail Laquers are £7 and availiable in any American Apparel store or on americalaparrel.net .
