Butter London No more waity,Katie

Hey Beauties,

I picked up one Butter London Nail Polish in America. I know here they are expensive also at Ulta in America they too are also expensive OPI $8 and Butter London around $15. 
I knew that this polish was a Limited Edition due to the Royal Wedding. 

My thoughts:

First I'll start with the colour. I have many purples most of them are pastel or just glitter. But with No more waity, Katie the dark purple with glitter just does not look good on me at all. As for the lasting power this did not last me long at all with in a day my nails had chipped :(. 
In my thoughts OPI does the best glitter polishes on the market. But I have heard huge hypes about Butter London but this colour let me down. How ever this has not put me off the brand. I will try there colours in the future. I can't let one colour put me off the brand forever right?

Dusty wanted to be in the photo :).

As you can see on my 1st and 2nd finger i had to do a touch up job. Photos where taken on the second day.

  • OPI Base Coat. 
  • No more waity, Katie. (colour)
  • Sache Vite Top Coat.

Please let me know if there is any MUST have colours by Butter London.

Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation Review!!!

Hey Beauties,

At the start of the year I had been hearing many great things about the LM Foundations and even there Tinted Moisturisers. So I held out and waited till I was in America. So I picked up the Primer and Silk Creme Foundation. I never got the Tinted Moisturiser only because I grabbed the Benefit One (Wish I didn't)

The Silk Creme Foundation has become my favourite Foundation I have ever used. They Hype and expectations lived up to what i had read and saw on blogs and youtube. 


  • Medium-Full converge. The Foundation is very build able if your looking for a full coverage and blends extremely well.
  • Last all day long with a primer.
  • Only need a small amount of product. A little goes a long way. 
  • Comes in a 35ml Tube. I had a look at all my Foundations and they are all 30ml so 5ml extra.
  • Great for photography as it does not contain SPF. Any SPF in foundation will make you look white like a ghost in any photo even with medium-full coverage and bronzer.
To tell you the truth I can't think of any but...........
  • Price here is Australia :( You'r looking at RRP $82.00

With out Flash.

With Flash

  • Please excuse the brows. They need to be done ASAP. lol

If you don't want too pay full price you can get the Foundation from Strawberrynet for $52.50 includes Free shipping.

Or KissandMakeupny for $42.00. Does not Include Shipping.

Only one day left of my Christmas Giveaway Enter Here.

Should I go Fake?

Hey Beauties,

Just a quick little post as I want your thoughts or opinions on Fake Nails. 

Since Beauty School I have had trouble with my nails growing due too getting gel and acrylics done around twice a week for 10 weeks. I also have 2 nails that are extremely weak and can never grow. 

My question is Should I get fake nails done? I know right why get them done when they have destroyed my nails. 

Well here are some Pros and Cons.


  • Easy too paint.
  • looks more maintained then my original nails.
  • Great for photos for NOTW. (New DSLR Camera soon yay)
  • Does cost money too maintain.
  • Is a pain when I will want them removed.
  • Some types of acrylics for example Long acrylics can be tacky. But Ill be going for sort length. 
Any feedback would be much appreciated as I'm stuck on what to do. 

Don't forget only 4 days left till a draw the winner of my Christmas Giveaway Click Here. for all details.

MAC Brush Haul (The Grove LA)

Hey Beauties,

It has been a few months now since I have been back from America. I still have many more Hauls from America but I'm just doing it over time :) 

The last day before we left America I forgot about getting some MAC brushes. I remembered that the lady from the MAC store in Hollywood said the Grove take MACPRO cards. John was sun baking and I asked if we could go to the grove. The sun must have made him happy and he said yes lol (some guys hate shopping) 

I must add that compared to the customer service at MAC here in Australia the service in America is a million times better. I think they could smell me coming. The ladies where always nice and so helpful. Even when I was waiting for her to get all the items at least 2 more Sales Assistants came up to me and asked if I needed help. 

When I was in Vegas The lady who helped me knew I was going to spend a lot of money there. But then again Americans think MAC is expensive . But when I'm over there or even any Australian who goes there thinks MAC is dirt cheap. 

As for my MAC Brushes they have been used a lot so I have sourced some Pictures form the MAC website. I'll also compare prices once again USD,AUD and the price I payed for having a MACPRO card. 

MAC 168 Large Angled Contour Brush.
MAC 138 Pointed Face Brush. 
MAC 150 Large Shader Brush.
MAC 219 Pencil Brush.
MAC 224 Tapered Blending Brush.

Brush Cleanser.


                                            USD          MACPRO        AUD

  • 168 Brush                  $34.00       $20.40           $65.00
  • 138 Brush                  $52.00       $31.20           $105.00
  • 150 Brush                  $42.00       $25.20           $85.00
  • 219 Brush                  $24.50       $14.70           $45.00
  • 244 Brush                  $30.00       $18.00           $54.00
  • Brush Cleanser          $13.00       $7.80             $20.00
