Youtube Channel

Hi everyone,

So sorry to have been absent for so long. For those interested, I have started a YouTube channel under my real name, Clemmie. The reason I have done this is that, with my present workload as a student, it will be easier for me to make videos than it is to blog. I really hope to update this channel regularly. Here is the link: http://youtube.com/user/TendresseRose?feature=mhee

Please subscribe! Much love xx

Lady Danger

I tend to steer clear of bright colours on the lips, going for nude, peachy-toned hues instead. However, at uni I have absolutely loved Mac's Lady Danger on certain nights out. Red lipstick is actually great for when you want to look fabulous, but don't have much time to get ready. This is because, as your lips are what I like to call 'statement lips,' you don't have to wear much makeup other than the lipstick. I will wear a light blush, and usually no eyeshadow or a very natural one.

In the picture below, I am wearing Mac's Lady Danger with Revlon's Colourstay Lipliner in Red - original name!

I'm Back!

I am going to issue a very short apology: I am so sorry for going awol on you all! I promise I will update my blog more regularly from now on.

^ YSL Nail Touches in Coral and Tender Pink, Nars Single Eyeshadow in Nepal and OPI's Top Coat!

^ This is YSL's Coral. On the nails it comes out as a peach-coral with a pearl finish. Very pretty!

^This is Tender Pink. A far more matte, baby-pink shade, which is very pretty. The only problem I have is that it is rather light so you need to apply several layers in order to achieve an opaque finish.

Both of these were found in the House of Fraser sale, reduced from £20 to £13! I snapped them up very quickly. The OPI top coat has been perfect for protecting the colour. It really is the best protective top coat for your nail colour on the market.

^ One of my best friends gave me the Nars Eyeshadow in Nepal for Christmas. It is absolutely gorgeous! A kind of caramel/golden brown colour.
Hope you are all well! I intend to purchase some items from the new Mac Cham Pale collection so will be posting about that soon xx

A Huge Apology & Current Favourites

Firstly, I just want to say how sorry I am that I haven't blogged for such a long time. September was a very busy month for me - I had to relocate from London all the way down to the South coast for university. I have just finished the notorious Freshers' Week so now can finally sit down and blog.
I thought it might be a good idea to start with my current favourites.

^ I am absolutely loving the Urban Decay Naked Palette. It is absolutely gorgeous! I tried to stop myself from buying it as I already own far too many of these neutral eyeshadow colours, but managed to justify this purchase by telling myself that it would be good for travel... I am very happy that I bought it however. The colours are absolutely gorgeous and work so well together.

^ I have also been loving and using Chanel's loose powder a great deal recently. I find that it blends effortlessly with any liquid foundation I am wearing and reduces shine without making your face too matte. If you are looking for a loose powder I would definitely suggest that you try this one out.

^ Chanel's Le Vernis in Lotus Rouge is my new favourite nail colour. I traditionally tended to steer away from bright colours and instead stick to my trusted neutrals but I have really enjoyed the change. Lotus Rouge is a gorgeous, sophisticated dark red. I also find that Chanel's nail polishes have a lovely consistency, compared to OPI nail polishes which I personally think are rather gloopy and difficult to work with. The Chanel nail polishes dry very quickly, meaning that there is less chance of smudging and one coat delivers an opaque, strong finish.

Mini Mac & Nars Haul

So a few days ago I went shopping for more sensible things such as clothes or shoes...what did I come away with? Yet more make up! However, I am not being too critical of myself as they were items that I have wanted for a long time, and bought with some birthday money, so my mini haul wasn't too naughty!

^ I picked up Mac's Eye Kohl in Teddy, Nars Single Eyeshadow in Cyprus, and Nars Cream Blush in Penny Lane.

^ Nars Eyeshadow in Cyprus. Cyprus has been described by some bloggers as 'the perfect neutral,' and that's exactly what it is. It is a lovely golden-beige shade that is perfect for the daytime as an all over wash colour, but can easily be paired with a darker crease colour for the nightime.

^ Mac's Eye Kohl in Teddy. A very pretty rich, golden brown shade that will make a softer change from black eyeliner.

^ Nars Cream Blusher in Penny Lane. This is GORGEOUS! It gives a beautiful dewy finish to the skin without making it look greasy. I wore this the other night and it just made my skin look as if it had a bit of a 'glow.'

More soon! xx

Nars Ondine Eyeshadow & Update

This week I got my A Level Results, the results of the exams you take when you are 17-18 in the UK in your final two years of school. I got an A* in English Literature, and As in Politics and Religious Studies. I am now off to read English Literature at university. This means that, for the first time ever, I will be living away from the comforts of home, semi-independent..! The university I am going to is over a three hour drive from where I live in London and about two hours on the train, so I will be a long way away from home. As you can imagine, this week has been rather eventful.

I need to buy lots of things for the big move, so am rather busy at the moment. However, I thought that I would share with you one of my current favourites - Nars Eyeshadow in Ondine. One of my friends bought this for my birthday and it is beautiful!

It is a lovely brown colour, with almost mauve undertones. I would say that it is not as cool a colour as Lola Lola. The quality and pigmentation of Nars eyeshadows is superb, so if you haven't already, I would definitely recommend you take a look at the Nars eyeshadow range!

More soon! xx
