MAC See Sheer Lipstick

Price - £13.50

See Sheer is a lustre finish lipstick by MAC, because its a lustre finish it is quite sheer as the name would also suggest as well as being glossy too. See Sheer is described as a 'Pinked Grapefruit' colour by MAC and it looks like a pinky coral shade when worn.
I tend to wear this lipstick quite usually when I want a little bit of colour on my lips but nothing that stands out too much and because of its glossy finish I don't need to wear it with lipgloss either. Another reason why I like this colour is that despite the fact that it is a lipstick it looks more like a lipgloss when worn.

FOTD of me wearing the lippy before work this morning, my makeup is very minimal as I really cannot be bothered in the mornings and also the fact that I don't have enough time either - I'd rather have 10 mins extra sleep :-)

Clean: Warm Cotton Fragrance

CLEAN - Warm Cotton
Eau De Parfum 60ml
Price - $69 (Aprx £40)

I was first introduced to this fragrance when I was given a small sample at Sephora when I was on holiday in the US and as soon as I smelt it I knew I had to buy it despite not knowing the brand. I have a weird love for all things smelling of Fresh Cotton & Linen and this is what this fragrance smells like but even better.

About the brand:
"CLEAN Perfume was launched in April 2003. The founder, desired a fragrance that was reminiscent of pure soap, that universal fresh out of the shower scent. Unable to find such a fragrance, she developed her own…CLEAN."

CLEAN have 8 scents to choose from that incorporate that fresh/clean/shower smell and feeling. The scent I have is called Warm Cotton and it smells just like warm cotton with a "clean" smell. I am finding it really hard to describe this fragrance but you definitely have to smell it for yourself to capture the full essence of it before making judgement as it is great!! :-) I have even had a few people at work comment on a lovely "clean" smell when I am wearing it.

CLEAN's description for Warm Cotton:
"It captures the feeling of a fluffy, warm towel just pulled from the dryer or slipping into your favorite T-shirt line-dried in the summer sun. CLEAN Warm Cotton wraps you in notes of Citrus, Lilac and Jasmine over a subtle but oh-so-sexy blend of Amber and Musk. A fresh, comforting, just-laundered scent."

The CLEAN range can be purchased from Sephora but I'm not sure if its available in the European Sephora's as I tried to find it when I was in Paris recently and everybody I asked looked at me like I was mad after describing fragrance lol.

I must admit if you don't have a love for anything with a cotton and linen smell you may not understand or like this fragrance but if you do you will love it. I can't wait to go back to America and actually test out the other scents within the range and pick up some more too. My only negative point about the fragrance is about the price as I think that even though it is a great smelling scent I don't think it should be priced that much just to smell clean. Having said that, as I am weird and love this type smell it hasn't really deterred me and I will buy it again.

Gold or a Rose Gold Watch??

I have been wanting to buy a Gold/Rose Gold watch for over a year now but I never seem to actually make that purchase even though I've tried on a million within that time period. So yesterday whilst shopping at Westfield I decided to finally just get the damn watch but the problem I was then faced with was what watch to buy from a selection of 5 and what colour. My sales assistant was a guy who was very patient with me whilst I tried on the same watches over and over again lol.

I really wanted to buy this Michael Kors Rose Gold watch but felt it didn't really look that great on my complexion and the fact that i'll probably only wear it for a little while and get bored of it. However I am now having second thoughts....

I ended up buying this Michael Kors Gold watch  but I didn't have the links taken off as I am still undecided if I want to go back for the Rose Gold or a different gold watch by another brand I've been lusting after for agggggeeesss too!!

Now you can see why despite the fact that I've wanted to buy a watch for over a year I haven't been able to make a decision with my indecisiveness *Shaking my head*.
