Okay except ONE. Before I begin with my collection I should tell you that I’ve got one more on my list:

Smith and Cult’s – Regret the Moon. As soon as that baby is in (on) my hands I’ll pop it on this post.

Also, one I recently finished was Essie’s – Spin The Bottle. Fantastic, opaque and creamy nude that’s warm in its tone. See below – isn’t it pretty? You know what, fine I’ve convinced myself I need to pick up another bottle tomorrow.

Okay I digress click to read more on my current collection!

Since I’ve been back in the UK I’ve spent an obscene amount of ££ on beauty products. I know, I know. What’s new? Being back home means easy access to wonderfully British brands – two of which are featured in today’s post.

Read on to see my recent spurge…

{Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs}

I’m not one to rant and rave and review an entire collection of products without a particular story in mind but this lipstick collection just had to take centre stage. Despite my intitial hesitations about the nude collection to precede, I’m so impressed…

You know me. I hate nudes.  I very rarely wear nudes cuz I’m a bold girl all the way but since I’ve started making more effort with eye shadow, I’ve been becoming more accepting.

Then the Maybelline Buffs collection happened and I’m all over it.

{High pigment creams}

A collection of high-pigment, caramel, vanilla and berry, creamy lipsticks that offer the second edition to last year’s Colour Sensational Vivids. If you’ve followed the blog since then you’ll know I was so mad about those lipsticks I wore them all through Fashion Week…

{The swatches}

While I do love all of these colours I obviously can’t pull them all off – I’d rather not look washed out. The nudes offer a range of colours to suit a variety of skin tones and for my olive (okay now grey/yellow) complexion I prefer the caramel/berry tones.
