MAC/ two penneth

Hands up if you want to look like this? neither.

Sure, the lipglass is pretty....but totally unusable for fear of ruining the stripeyness. And who the hell would buy the eyeshadow?! My eyes are red enough in the morning.

Happy where's my present?

Wednesday 14th July was mine and Bloke's anniversary........but due to both of us working, we decided to celebrate it on the Thursday instead.


Jumper - £12 New Look Sale
Jeggings - £18 M&S

After a hearty breakfast of bacon rolls in the M&S cafe, we headed off into town for some shopping fun. It wasn't long before we ended up in Mecca......I mean MAC, where I promptly fleeced that poor Bloke of mine out of £99.

My purchases;

I got the very last Stereo Rose in stock (cue stupid happy dance)

MSFN in Medium+

3 of the most amazing lippies ever!

I also walked away with Fix+ and some Pro Eyemakeup Remover.........boring things compared to the rest!

I'm sure you've all seen swatches of Stereo Rose on other blogs, as well as the lippies....but should you wish to see what they look like on my mug, gimme a shout!

Other presents included...

* Revlon Nail Polishes
* £25 iTunes voucher (so i can secretly download JLS without anyone knowing.........oops)
* Clinique Happy

Once we were all shopped out, we headed to All Bar One for foodstuffs....

He's going to hate me for posting this picture.

Unfortunately, we were far too hungry to take pictures of our food before eating (not that you really need to see what we ate!) but I have to say, I had the most AMAZING burger was all herby, with caramelised onions and camembert! Yum!

And they serve beer for girls!

It's pink!

What happened after beer and food is far too much of a drunken shambles to blog about.......all in all, a fucking brilliant day!

P.S - what did I buy Bloke? nothing as yet............I'm a bad girlfriend.

NOTD; A little bit of Revlon love.....

Hiya loves!

Hope you're all well?

Last week was mine and Bloke's anniversary.......I'll do a separate post on that later. Anyway, part of my present were these rather lush Revlon polishes.

L-R; Minted and Lilac Pastelle

I flippin love how they look on my nails!

Really soft pastels, nice creamy formula.......these are a definite two-coater to achieve maximum opaqueness, but they dry quickly so you don't have to hang about all evening.

I reckon Bloke did quite well picking these out himself, don't you?

Just looking at these colours makes me want some ice cream/love hearts/minty green bonbons right now! Bonbons are diet-friendly............right??

I also went a bit mad in River Island and New Look........there's far too much to picture here!
I'll provide proper reviews of my purchases shortly.

Did you buy anything nice this weekend?

NOTD - Models Own Peach Sherbet

Models Own Peach Sherbet

Firstly.......what a lush colour!
It's a two-coater to give complete opaqueness, but its a total dream of a polish to apply.

Mannequin hands with a twist :)

What nail colours are you loving this Summer?

The X-Files; Xen Tan Face Tanner Luxe


Do you fake it?

I do.......Bloke doesn't seem to mind either.

I'm talking about fake tan.....get your minds out of the gutter! Even though I'm currently running a tanning salon and can have a sunbed whenever I want, I don't. I don't want to end up with leathery skin and wrinkles

So this is my general pre-tanned state. Not too bad during the Winter, but come Summer I need to rev it up a little....

Xen Tan Dark Lotion has been my tan of choice for a long time now..........I love the cherry bakewell scent and the ease of application. However, I wanted something the same but different for my face (i know, i seem crazy)
"Where for art thou amazing face tanner" was my tweet.
Luckily, the amazing folks at Xen Tan UK heard my cries of distress and sent me a tube of the Face Tanner Luxe post haste.

The tube of fantasticness!

Compared to the original Xen Tan, this one has more of a greenish tinge and a rather lush vanilla smell! It contains Vitamin E and Shea Butter to give you a super smooth tan and a mega moisturised face. During application, Bloke referred to me as smelling like a cupcake.....spose that's not such a bad thing!

Top Splodge - Xen Tan Face Tanner Luxe
Bottom Splodge - Xen Tan Dark Lotion

So.........the application. Apply the Face Tanner Luxe to your face and neck with your fingers, then wash your hands. It may look green when it first comes out of the tube, but it applies a really nice sheer olive colour (no scary witch face here!)
Once that was done, I applied my normal Xen Tan to the rest of my body using a mitt. Simples.

Smug mid-application picture

Although you can just leave for 3 hours and then shower, I always prefer to leave my tan on overnight...the geek/freak in me thinks it'll go darker and darker the longer i leave it.

And here's the final picture! Tantastic!

It's not hard to look super tanned next to a Scottish Bloke...

So would I repurchase? Damn right I would!! This little tube of goodness has totally changed my face more yucky tan-filled pores, no dry bits, no biscuit/curry scent. Major WIN.
And I can guarantee I'll be first in the queue when Xen Tan launches the Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe..........cos for me, super dark = bestest!

FYI - this product was provided by PR. The fact I got it for free has made no impact whatsoever on my review, and I shall quite happily buy my next tube when this one runs out!
