NOTD: I'm In The Moon For Love OPI...

Since I've already reviewed three of the four Starlight collection shades I bought from QVC, I thought I'd finish of the month by reviewing the final shade that came in the set. 



I'm In The Moon For Love is the shade that made me pick the QVC set (link below) I did, as I love a good purple polish shade. So this is the shade that had the most to live up to, but did it deliver?

NOTD: Ro-Man-Ce On The Moon by OPI...


I've mentioned that I bought a OPI polish set from QVC (link below), which contains 4 shades from the Starlight collection; well today I'm going to look at the red shade which came in it, since I've opened the box...
When selecting which set I wanted (you choose between a warm or cool colour mix) I was going to pick the cool option to avoid getting yet another red shade from Opi, but in the end decided that I preferred the overall colour combination in the warm set - plus the cool set has one of those glitter a in as a crime base polishes, which didn't appeal to me in the slightest.
Will this red stand out from the other million holiday reds, or should I have picked the 'cool' option and braved the glitome polish?

NOTD: Press * For Silver and Ce-less-tial Is More by OPI...

It's that time of year; I'm digging into my collection of Christmas polishes, and as I'm currently working through my holiday 2015 polishes I thought I'd review them for people who are thinking of picking them up. 
So with that said, lets get things rolling with two new polishes from OPI's Starlight collection...

Curl up and dye: Roller Lash mascara by Benefit...

Today I'm continuing my quest to find that magic can't-live-without-it holy grail mascara, and I'm going towards the higher price range.

I've tried a few different curling mascaras from brands in the low-mid price range and really enjoyed them, so I'm curious to see what (if any) benefits a pricier mascara gives...

NOTD: Saint George by A England...

A England base their Collections on inspiration from english literature, ancient legends and classic stories from old England. Renowned for their "3-free" and "cruelty-free" approach, A England Nail Enamel isn't just unique and fashionable, it's also a healthy option and caters for all women and beliefs.

Today I'm continuing my exploration into the world of Indie polish companies with the brand A England. 

This brand specializes in holographic polishes and is really popular with the nail board members over on Makeup Alley, so when I saw a bottle of their polish on eBay recently I jumped on it...

Have I fallen for empty hype, or is the praise deserved?

Getting lippie: Studded Lipstick in Backstage Bambi by Kat Von D...

As I'm sure everyone who is into makeup already knows at this point, you can now buy certain products (no polish or perfumes) on the Sephora website and have them shipped internationally.  
I first got Backstage Bambi in a mini size as part of a set years ago on one of my trips to New York, and wore it to death. I bought a full sized one on my last NYC trip a few months ago, and as we can get the Kat Von D lip products delivered to us,  I thought that now I could share a review for it.
