LIME CRIME: Lipsticks

I got my first Lime Crime lipstick (Airborne Unicorn) back in August and fell in love with the colour and the amazing opaque finish. I've finally got around to buying some more and I am absolutely loving these also. The packaging, first off, is amazingly gorgeous. The purpley/pink tube with the silver sparkly unicorn image and the Lime Crime logo. It is sleek and pretty and instantly stands out when you pull it out your handbag.




Airborne Unicorn (I got a backup)



This colour stood out so much that when I first saw it, I had to have it. I'm acually wearing this one in my profile image and I think it is one of the most wearable everyday colours Lime Crime have.



D'Lilac



I don't think this colour will be for everyone, but I adore it. It has such an opaque finish and is so creamy to apply. It was recently seen on Nicki Minaj and I think it looked amazing on her!

Countessa Fluorescent


This bright pink is gorgeous, every girl needs one in her makeup bag. 




Centrifuchsia



Centrifuchsia is a pinky/red colour, a colour i normally wouldn't touch, but when my order arrived this was the first one I wore and I was amazed that I actually could wear deeper colours on my lips.



No she Didn't


Well, what can I say... Wow! No She Didn't is an amazing opaque bright blue and although I won't be wearing this shade out everyday of the week, I think it's definitely got potential to be worn on the right occasion... I love it!




There are still 4 more I would love to have in my collection, Great Pink Planet, Mint To Be, Coquette & Chinchilla. I also got one of the Magic Dust eye shadows in the colour Mirror, Mirror. It's a beautiful silver glitter and I love it also. I've not been massively into loose eye shadows, but since trying this one I definitely want to get a few more of their colours. I've used Mirror, Mirror over the top of MACs Bare Study Paint Pot and it looks super pretty and sparkly.

If you haven't got Lime Crime already... You need some!

OPI: Valentine's Nails!

I love this OPI combo. Using Heart To Resist and Italian Love Affair.



I love pink nails, this is has to be my favourite pink polish... And I've got A LOT!




Firstly, I used a base coat to protect my nails.
 Over that I applied two coats of OPI's Italian Love Affair.
And finally I added OPI's Heart To Resist onto both ring fingers.



Super girly and perfect for Valentine's...

BENEFIT: Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow & Sun Beam


Benefit are bringing out a few new products this year and two that have caught my eye already are their new liquid foundation, Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow £24.50 (set for UK release April 2012) and another highlighter, Sun Beam £18.50 (set for UK release May 2012).

Benefit's new liquid foundation, I think is long overdue, I personally love a liquid foundation and this is definitely something that has been missing from their line. Benefit tend to only bring out 3 or 4 shades with their previous foundations and concealers but this time however, they're releasing nine shades. 3 light, 3 medium and 3 dark.

Light: 
'I'm Pure 4 Sure' Ivory
'Believe in Me' Ivory
'Cheers To Me' Champagne

Medium:
'I'm So Money' Honey
'I'm All The Rage' Beige
'Warm Me Up' Toasted Beige

Dark:
'I'm So Glamber' Amber
'I'm Hopelessly Hot' Hazelnut
'Gotta Know Me' Nutmeg


I'm not massively impressed with the packaging as normally it's the first thing I love about Benefit products, but if the foundation is as good as I'm hoping, then I can overlook that.
Each foundation colour matches with the Hello Flawless powders, so if you like to use a powder to set your foundation it will be easy to match the liquid to the powder. Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow is oil free, fragrance free and paraben free and contains SPF 25. It is said to be lightweight with buildable coverage. Although I rather a full coverage foundation, I'm still excited to try it out a see how it compares with other foundations..



As for Sun Beam, this is something I'm massively looking forward to. To join Benefit's highlighter family, alongside High Beam and Moon Beam, Watts up and Girl Meets Pearl. I really don't think they needed another highlighting product, however this one did instantly grab my attention. The bronzey glow added to cheek bones during the summer should be gorgeous and this product should also be more universal for the darker skin tones. If you own High Beam or Moon Beam, I'd say Sun Beam isn't really essential, however if like me you enjoy that subtle difference it's something to look forward to picking up for summer.
