I'm ashamed to say that it was only a month ago I purchased my first Mac Lipstick. I have always been a drugstore kind of girl, having never really earned a huge amount of money working in retail I always thought the likes of Mac were way out of my budget. That was a total misconception and I think if you try products on and test things out properly there is no money wasting involved at all. When I was much younger and would treat myself to a high end products I would always purchase products which everyone was raving about, or friends said they used/liked rather than what actually suited me. Which is where I would waste a lot of money and I guess created this idea of higher end brands being too much money and I would solely stick to shopping in Boots and Superdrug.

1. MAC Frost Lipstick - Barcelona Red (discontinued)
2. MAC Lustre - Costa Chic (I think! The name has rubbed off at the bottom)
3. MAC Satin Lipstick- Twig
4. Mac Retro Matte Lipstick - Ruby Woo
5. MAC Cremesheen Lipstick - Creme D'Nude
Barcelona Red and Costa Chic was given to me a few years ago by someone which was the first time I ever owned a Mac Lipstick. I absolutely adore Costa Chic in the summer, it's such a beautiful bright colour.

I then brought Twig last month which at the moment I'm wearing as an everyday lipstick. Ruby Woo and Creme D'Nude was a birthday present (pretty awesome presents!!) I LOOOOOVE Ruby Woo!!!! It makes my teeth look so white! I like wearing Creme D'Nude when I have a heavy eye look as it's a real natural colour.

I can see an obsession starting to happen here, I'm already looking at what colour to buy next so if you have any recommendations - let me know!

The nail varnish is actually a lot lighter than in the image.
When I first saw that Barry M had brought out a Speedy Quick Dry range I thought hallelujah the big man upstairs has answered all my prayers! The colour range in this collection is beautiful, perfect for spring/summer and with the sun recently making an appearance I couldn't resist.

I purchased this muted almost duck egg pastel purple (I may have just made that colour up) alongside Kiss Me Quick which is a pale pastel pink. I love the colour, it's beautiful but the next day after I painted my nails they chipped and started to peel off.

I did only do one coat though as the colour pay off is insanely good! I thought one layer is all I will need but I was wrong there. I was pleasantly surprised with how quick it dried, these products are usually a gimmick and I always regret falling for such promises. I think I only had to sit still not touching anything for around 5 minutes (which is good going for me, I'm usually there for about 15 minutes trying desperately not to touch anything... you can always guarantee there's an itch that appears right after applying nail polish).

At £3.99 how can you say no?

don't mind the horrendous fake tan hands
