Mac describes Pearl as a 'soft pale gold with an icy shimmer' - and that is a fairly accurate description. Do not be put off by the 'white' in the shade, as when applied to the skin it simply leaves a pearly gold sheen.
Hush is referred to as a 'soft pale peach with an icy shimmer' - I think Mac could have done a bit better than describe them all in exactly the same way! Hush is, however, a lovely light peach , and a shade which can be used for such a variety of things. You can use it as a blush, highlight and eyeshadow primer. The possibilities are endless!
If you have CCBs, do check whether you are able to apply them on the eyes/lips as some of the CCBs are not reccommended for use in those areas.
More soon! xx
I just thought I would show you all what I wore when I went to a friend's supper the other weekend:
^ The dress is from French Connection and the shoes are from Carvela.
For some reason the picture is really bad quality, even though I uploaded it straight from my camera (?!) so I apologise for that xx

As promised, today I will review OPI's 'Bubble Bath.'
^ Bubble Bath
Bubble Bath is a beautiful colour. When I think of a bubble bath, I think of milky, soapy bubbles - and this colour totally reflects this image! It is a lovely, milky, light pink colour with a touch of white. I think this could be my favourite nail polish because it is so wearable and pretty :) I use Essie's 'First Base Base Coat' to provide a base for the polish, and then use OPI's 'Top Coat' to protect the colour.
What are your favourite OPI nail polishes? xx

I will post about Bubble Bath as soon as I can, but today I wanted to show you all Hopelessly in Love. Hopelessly in Love is such a pretty milky-peachy-pink colour!
The shade might not be everyone's cup of tea as it is such a safe nude, but personally I love it. It is perfect for keeping your nails looking pretty and well kept, without making a statement. Despite being such a major nail polish brand, OPI polishes are not too expensive - they are £10 each and cannot be beaten for quality.
More soon! xx

^ Azalea Blossom (from the Spring Colour Forecast collection) is absolutely gorgeous. It fades from a baby pink at the top ( which is similar to Well Dressed blush) to a light lilac, and then finally to a violet colour. It is such a beautiful product, and very unusual. I think that the best way to apply this product is simply to press your brush into the powder lightly 2-3 times, and then apply straight onto the apples of the cheeks/wherever you want to apply the blush.
^ Mineralise Blush in Rhapsody in Two - beautiful golden yellow colour mixed with a peachy pink. I know this has been one of the most popular buys from the Too Fabulous collection and I can see why. You can apply these colours separately, but when mixed it creates a lovely champagne pink colour. Highly recommended! xx

Orange Fizz is a deceptive name. In reality, this shade is a light peach/coral colour that can be built up for more intensity. It is perfect for the Spring as coral shades are everywhere!
^ Not very well applied, but hopefully you can see the general effect!
More soon xx

^ My favourite lipsticks of the month - (L-R) Illamasqua Liv, Fable and YSL's Rouge Volupte in No7, Lingerie Pink. All rather similar and I have previously talked about all of them, so will only briefly refer to them now. Liv is a lovely matte, lilac/blue toned pink, Fable is a gorgeous rosey pink, and the famous Lingerie Pink is yet another bubblegum, blue-toned pink.
^ Benefit High Beam. I really don't use this enough. Such a pretty pink highlighter with a subtle silver sheen.
I have been very busy this month, in particular preparing for a music event in order to raise money for charity. With so many rehearsals, I didn't have time to apply liquid foundation, so just used this powder instead. Studio Fix powder is great because it is quick to apply, yet still provides good coverage. I have been using Nars Deep Throat on the apples of my cheeks and Madly to contour - a quick, simple routine which I really like.
More soon xx
