1 - The O by Cloud Nine - £ 199.95 available here I have wanted this for such a long time, I have heard and seen such great reviews of it. One day.. One Day.

2 - Body and Bath Works, 3 Wick Candle - £various These are only available in the USA at the moment I believe, I would love someone to correct me, I had one from a friend that was so lush I wish I could get another, They are available on Ebay but the shipping costs are rather pricey! 

3- MAC Impassioned Lip Stick - £ 14 avalilable here  I recently went to MAC and saw this colour and have no idea why I did not purchase it! grrr. This is one of MAC's amplified colours, which in my opinion are the best, they give such a nice moisturised colour to your lips! 

4 - NARS Bronzing Powder, Laguna - £25 available here I am new to NARS, I have 2 blushes which I am in love with, I want to venture out into the bronzers too!

5 - NARS Andy Warhol Limited Edition Eye Palette. I am not sure if you can get these yet, they are part of the AW12 collection so may not be avalibe yet, You can get this in 3 different colours, I love the Grey one. As I have said before I'm a sucker for anything gimmicky! 

6 - Cannon EOS 600D Digital SLR Camera - £ 519.99 available here. Again this is another item on my wish list that will stay there for a while! I would love to invest in this camera to make all my photos look super professional! I would also like to start Vlogging. 

7 - Grey Ello Worm Jumper form Labyrith Sweater - £29.99 available here. Labyrinth was one of my favourite films as a wee nipper and I love the quirky clothes you can get from Truffle Shuffle.

Things I have been using this week ...

Wednesday, 22 August 2012

  These are some of the things that I have been using this week that I thought were worth sharing with you.
for those of you that follow me on twitter andvfacebook, you will know I have been harpering on about finding an eyemakeup remover that removes ALL my makeup. I just couldn't find one, even Liz Earl didn't remove it all on it's own.. 

Then my glossy box came. The August box contained the  DHC Deep Cleansing oil which claims to 'dissolve' your make up and wash away. In my opnion this was the only decent product in this months box. 

I love this oil, I use it to dissolve my eye makeup before I cleanse with Liz Earl hot cloth cleanser. I wiil defianlty be purchasing the full size product.

 The next thing I have been loving, which I have seen mixed reviews on are the IOS Lipbalms. I have two of these balms, the Passion fruit flavour (pictured) and the Strawberry flavour. I bought these on ebay for around £4.50 as they were not avalibe in the UK, I think they now are.... they are yummies!

  The Next beauty is my Revlon LipStain, I orginally had the Lovesick colour which as you can see in my previous post I was obsessed with. I went to pcik myself up the baby pink colour to wear when the sun was out last week. Cherish I think it is called.

My very last product this week is the Exaggerate Auto Waterproof Eye Line in Aqua Sparkle. This was a bit of an out of character buy for me to be honest and I haven't worn it out of the house too much yet however saying that I love the colour on my bottom water line paired with Woodwinked eyeshadow by MAC.. yum yum yum.
