MAC's Brave

I'm not even going to say that name beginning with K, we ain't gunna get lips like her so lets just drop it. Whilst browsing the MAC in New York (as you do) I came across Brave, exactly my kind of colour as its a pinky beige sorta shade. I've been hearing everyone rave about this lipstick lately, kind of a your lips but better colour, and it also offers that factor of plumping up your lips too making them look fuller- which is what we alllll want. This is the lipstick for those not so daring enough to go full on nude, it is subtle.

Its a satin finish so isn't at all drying, it is the perfect comfortable everyday lipstick. This looks nicer when I'm not so pale, a little bronzer and it is flattering. As always with MAC lipsticks it is good quality, has that vanilla scent and this shade in particular will last me a good 4 hours on the lips, before needing any touchups! It is also perfect for the paler girls, this isn't at all going to make your face look flat.

It has become an ultimate favourite that I just can't stop reaching for, I feel like MAC lipsticks used to be so hyped about and then they went off the radar, however I feel like this year they're making a come back...


Looking After Blonde Hair - Lush Daddy-O Review

We all know about purple shampoo and what a big difference it can make for the colouring of blonde hair. However, some do that job in a better way than others. The Lush Daddy-O shampoo is the best I've found, for the sheer fact that the after results are more like any other generic shampoo. It doesn't leave my hair feeling dry, and not so clean like some others can do. I hate having dull brassy looking tones in my hair so I use this twice a week and it really helps to stop it.

I leave it on my hair for a couple of minutes once a week, only once a week but I feel like that also makes a difference. I have tried other brands offering similar results yet I'm left with flat looking hair. To be honest when I started using this product I instantly noticed the violet scent, reminded me of those horrible parma violet sweets that tasted like washing up liquid, so luckily I can put that to one side, even if the smell is making me queasy!

I love that Lush do different sizes so you can try something out first, I picked up the smaller bottle and once it is finished I'll be picking up another.
