LIME CRIME Chinchilla

Too Faced Lip Insurance

Today I finally tried out my new lipstick from Lime Crime and I really love it. First of all it smells absolutely divine and the colour is so interesting. A very muted grey/lavender colour that I never thought I would dare to wear. I've heard that these opaque lipsticks can be quite drying so I applied it over my Too Faced Lip Insurance and it went on very nicely.
I personally think Chinchilla is a beautiful shade and a very long wearing lipstick. I would highly recommend this lipstick to anyone wanting to try this and I can't wait to get my hands on more Lime Crime products.
You can purchase if from the official Lime Crime website here:

Since I live in the UK I bought mine from Love Makeup:

What do you think of this shade and other Lime Crime products?

Lime Crime opaque lipstick in the shade 'Chinchilla'

I was lusting after one of the new Lime Crime velveteens 'Salem' from their new Clueless Witch collection and stupidly ordered it from their official site before checking if it was available on a UK stockist website. I ended up spending $30 on Salem so I hope it will live up to my expectation.
A few minutes after ordering I saw on Facebook that it was available on and  so I bitterly went to check prices and ended up ordering a load of other things I had been lusting after such as this gorgeous Sugarpill 'Cold Chemisty' palette. I was also wanting to try their new super cute brushes so I picked one of those up. After that I decided I might as well spend over £50 (which is a crazy amount for me to spend on makeup in one go) and get the free shipping. I also purchased a Lime Crime lipstick in 'Chinchilla' though I doubt I will be able to pull it off as it is a grey/mauve shade but it just looks so pretty I couldn't help myself. Finally I have been hearing lots of good things abut NYX jumbo pencils and since I don't own anything from NYX I decided to give them a try and went for the shade 'Slate' as I thought it would go nicely with my new Sugarpill palette.

Good or Wicked?

Urban Decay Glinda palette & Loreal Feria in Wicked Black.
I have been suffering really badly with my eczema for just over a year now and I recently went to see an allergy specialist who gave me some very disappointing news that the cause of all my problems is likely to be black hair dye and cosmetics. As you can imagine I was heartbroken but I will find out for definite after I have been for more tests. I  hope I can find an alternative way to colour my hair. As for makeup, I love it so much I just don't want to have to stop wearing it.
I found this Glinda palette on eBay for only £20. It was released a year ago and I really liked the pretty pastel magical colours. I love the contrast of jet black hair and pretty soft colours on the eyes.
