MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick - Impressive

A couple weeks back I took a trip to Mac to treat myself to a new lippie and I ended up picking up a Sheen Supreme lipstick which until then I didn't even know they existed. I was drawn to the Sheen Supreme lipsticks mainly because of the gloss feature to them similar to a lip gloss, I would say they are very similar to the Lustre finish lipsticks by Mac but with more gloss/sheen to it.

After playing about with shades I chose Impressive which Mac describe as a neutral gilded plum. On first inspection Impressive looks darker than it actually is and when swatched you can immediately see the sheerness to the lipstick due to the sheen.

I really love how Impressive looks on me and I have been wearing it everyday for over 2 weeks now without fail. I am especially in love with the glossiness to this lipstick and the fact that it shows up a neutral pinkish shade on me which makes it easier for everyday wear. I am actually really surprised as to why the Sheen Supreme lipsticks were never under my radar before considering how often I am in Mac.

My only problem with the lipstick is that I feel that it can be quite drying to the lips as I find that I keep re-applying it as if it were a gloss to keep my lips moisturised. I would recommend wearing a moisturising balm on the lips before wearing the Sheen Supreme lipsticks.

China Glaze - Aquadelic

I recently bought this polish after seeing it in an Instagram picture a while ago and I automatcially went online to buy it. I am such a big fan of turquoise shades on my nails and I couldn't wait to try it out on my nails when it came. I would describe Aquadelic as a pasteley/bright turquoise colour more on the greenish side (I am not even sure if that makes any sense lol).

I have had this colour on my nails for 2 days and its already chipped, which partly due to having such a crap top coat and me applying the coats a little too thick. 

I really need to find a good quick drying top coat that doesn't chip my polish so easily, i've tried so many brands including Seche Vite, Nubar, Mavala and they all seem to work for a while but it never lasts.

I really love this shade on my nails and the fact that it also goes well with my Macbook cover (which I'm still learning how to use as I am a complete novice when it comes to Apple laptops).

Bling Bling

I have a thing for big bold jewellery and when I set eyes upon this necklace it was just right up my street, I only bought this necklace a 2 weeks ago but i've worn it numerous times already. I predict that I will be wearing this necklace very often, probably until it changes colour :)
