Xen-Tan claims to produce a streak-free tan in 3 hours. I applied mine using vinyl gloves and circular motions. I left it on over night and then rinsed off in the morning.

505 Guava Splash
This stuff is amazing. It smells like melon and tastes delicious. For those of you who are like myself and hate sticky glosses then these are for you. The worst thing for me is having my hair stuck to my lips but with this it isn't an issue.
The pigmentation is sheer which I don't mind and it does moisturise my lips.
As for its longevity? I applied this before my nap (don't know why I did this) and woke up 3 hours later with it still in tact. I only had to reapply after eating.
This is the gloss applied:
Lips were muted with foundation then gloss applied on top
For anyone who can recommend other non sticky glosses please leave me a comment :)

These goodies arrived from her in the post today:
Included in this swap were five OPI polishes which are quite expensive to buy in the UK. My immediate favourite is Samoan Sand. For those who read Look magazine they featured a review on this polish. It was given top marks, beating Chanel's Django.
Thank you Sarah for my goodies, this had made my weekend :)

The only time I wear heels is for nights out otherwise I feel overdone although i'm trying to break this habit and venture out more.
My favourite pair of flats have had their day! They were metalic style pumps from New Look which i've had for years. They are in such bad condition i'm not going to embarrass myself by uploading a picture.
Needless to say they have now been binned and replaced.
I prefer the daintiness of round toed shoes. I especially love the gold studded detail on the bow:
What are your all time favourite shoes?

Its £55 and can be worn as casual wear and also to the office.
Frill Swing Jacket
My problem? I can't think of enough outfit possibilities to justify the price tag.
Thats where you come in.
I need your help to provide me with ideas of what I can pair this jacket with (tops being my biggest issue).
I've been messing around on Polyvore but so far have only created the coat and skinny jeans.
Please help me with my dilemma (I really want this jacket).

Throughout the day I had this dreaded fear that everything would be sold out before I had a chance to go to the store.
So after work I raced down to MAC.
To my surprise, everything was in stock :)
My online purchases included Pink TLC and Tippy beauty powder blush, I knew instantly that I woulnt regret these. In town I got a backup of Pink Fish and two of the nail polishes in Something About Pink and On the Prowl.
Another favourite of mine from this collection apart from Pink Fish is On The Prowl, a lovely pale grey.
I prefer this over Barry M's nail paint in Grey which is darker. For reference that is one coat of polish over a base coat.
One thing my MAC didnt have was the Grand Duo's but after asking the MA when they would be released she realised they should have had their stand out but it was overlooked.
This was good news for me. I got first peek :)
My first impressions? Very impressed indeed. So impressed I took home three.
I love the permanent line of Mineralize blush so it was kind of a given that I would like these.
Today I wore Love Rock which is very pigmented and reminds me a bit like Tippy so a light hand is needed unless you like the doll effect.
I'm in two minds whether to get the Hello Kitty medium makeup bag. For £25 do I really need it? For those of you who already own it what are your opinions. Should I give in and buy?

Now I want to be part of the craze.
The basic concept is swapping makeup (a budget should be agreed beforehand) that is either hard to get or not available with people all over the world.
If you have certain items in mind feel free to provide a list or I can leave it as a surprise.
I will post to anywhere in the world.
