Butter London Nail Polish

I was first introduced to these polishes whilst watching a video on Fleur De Force's YouTube channel (you can find it here =D ). These Butter polishes make a regular appearance in the blogging and twitter world so when I was in Harvey Nichols in Manchester, I just HAD to buy one for myself. 

The colour selection they had wasn't great, they had a few of the normal polishes and a few of the Jelly ones. To be honest at first glance I wasn't thrilled with the colour collection, that was, until, I saw the colour TROUT POUT. I instantly fell in love with the colour as it is EXACTLY what I have been looking for for months ... bonus! 

The colour is a gorgeous coral colour which verges more on the pink side as opposed to orange, which I personally much prefer.

What I love about the packaging is the square top simply lifts of and underneath you find a simple round top with the brush attached. I love this design as the square lid gives the polish a clean and simple look while the round top helps you control the brush for an even finish.

Talking of finish ... I have found I only need one coat of polish as the colour is so intense. It dries super quick and has a glossy finish to it also. I would usually begrudge spending £12 on a nail polish but it was worth every penny in this case. 

If you have the money to spend on a Butter London polish I would say go out NOW and buy one from Harvey Nichols if you have one near you, if not, do not fear you can just click here to go straight to the Harvey Nics website and do some shopping from the comfort of your sofa!

MAC Pink Venus Eyeshadow

MAC eyeshadows, to me, are the god of all eyeshadows. I love the texture and the way they blend so easily with each other. In my make up collection I only have a few MAC eyeshadows and this one is the latest addition.

I have been wondering which one to get as my next purchase for a while now, I have Brule and Black Tide in my palette and a few odd colours here and there. As a spur of the moment purchase I bought my go to eyeshadow which is Pink Venus and, well, it is just gorgeous!

The eyeshadow is a gorgeous pink colour with silver sparkles running throughout. Unfortunately the eyeshadow would not photograph well so I couldn't get a good enough swatch for you. 

Like I said before, I love how the MAC eyeshadows blend and go on, also I love how pigmented they are. A little really does go a long way! This is definitely my go to eyeshadow now as it is a perfect spring daytime colour and the sparkles give it that little something extra.

As always, a winner yet again from MAC and would recommend this to any pink lover out there! You can buy this from the MAC website or from any MAC counter for £10.50 ... bargain!

Enjoy your Day
