Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle Lippy!

Another day, another purple lipstick!
Today's post is all about the Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle lipstick in 'One of the Boyz'

I picked this up on my trip to Dubai and I have wore it at least once a week since I have been home, I am obsessed.

The packaging is super cute. I love the copper affect and how it isn't like your every day standard lipstick bullet as we don't expect your every day product when it comes to RiRi do we?! It is so sleek and skinny and I am all about that life, you could carry this about with you everywhere even if you didn't want to take out a bag. Can we also talk about how cute the embossed FB is on the top of the casing?

'One of the Boyz' is described by the Fenty website as a 'wild lilac' and it is definitely a lilac toned purple which I love as it is something different to the strong bold purples I have in my collection and makes it easier to wear everyday. I only have one other lilac in my collection and it is the Mac X Nicki Minaj Viva Glam from a few years back. This is my favourite out of the two as I just feel like this one is so much more wearable as the Nicki one is a lot lighter.

This is probably the most comfortable matte lipstick I have ever wore, it honestly doesn't feel like a matte when it is on the lips, that you could be fooled into thinking this is a satin. It packs the full punch of pigment that comes with a matte lipstick with the comfort of a satin and I am really mind blown as to how Rihanna and her team have done this! It is so light weight and dreamy that I don't get the usual cracked or sore lips that sometimes comes with wearing matte lipsticks constantly.

The best thing about the mattemoiselle lipsticks is that we know how it will look on all skintones due to Rihanna's amazing range of models and swatches on her website and social media platforms.

These go for £16 which I think is so reasonable as it really is an amazing product, the Kylie Cosmetic's creme lipsticks go for $17 just for a comparison with another celeb make up brand.

I am lusting after every one of these shades. I NEED 'Up 2 No Good', 'PMS', 'MA Damn' asap however!

I know I have said it all already but I truly am obsessed with this. This may take over as my favourite ever purple and I thought MAC's 'Heroine' would always be my one!
Do you guys own any mattemoiselle shades? Which one?
Let us know so we can see what to pick up next!
Till next time!

20 questions about music tag!

Laura done this tag on here like a million years ago and I came across it when I was looking for one of my old posts.

1. Which bands/artist do you own the most albums by?
I used to buy Taylor Swift's album the day it would come out so it would probably be Taylor. Until old Taylor died and I patched Reputation. So either her or Johnny Cash.

Little Mix! They were faaaab. 

5. What was the greatest show you’ve ever been to?
Every time I see a show I think good lord that was the best ever. I seen JLO's residency in Vegas and that was a once in a lifetime experience, she knows how to put on a show! I also got to see my idol Bette Midler in the Hydro in Glasgow which made me cry with happiness. But Blink 182 will always hold a special place in my heart. I cannot wait to see Britney in the summer! If we are talking all shows however... I seen the love of my life Adam Sandler last April and it was so so special to me.

6. What’s the worst show you’ve ever been to?

20. What’s your “guilty pleasure” that you hate to admit to liking?

So that is my take on this tag!
Hopefully no one minds to much that I still love doing them!
Until next time!

Dress Me Zee!

Ok guys so I have to let you in on a secret. I am completely obsessed with an online boutique called 'Dress Me Zee'. You may have come across this on instagram but if not, I seriously suggest you go and check them out. I literally want about 99% of their stuff. I wore one of their dresses for New Year's Eve and wore another to my sister's engagement party.

This was the dress I wore on New Year's Eve and you won't believe how many compliments I got on it. I think this was a perfect dress for Hogmanay as it was sexy and sparkly and if you can't rock that combo when can you! I can't wait until I have another excuse to wear this. It is in the sale here!

I literally lusted after this multiway dress for months and it is now on sale for a bargain! Like the one above, I cannot wait to wear this again and due to the fact it is multiway I can change it up everytime I wear it. I must admit I do love a sequins dress!

What do you guys think of these dresses? Have you every shopped at Dress Me Zee? I think my next purchase will be the stunning 'Isabella' dress!

Kylie Cosmetic's Grape Soda Lipkit

Unless you have been living under a rock, you will have heard that yesterday Kylie Jenner confirmed that she had given birth to her and Travis Scott's first baby! Props to the youngest KarJenner for managing to keep it as hidden as she did as I can't imagine it was easy seeing as she is constantly hounded by the paparazzi! So in celebration of the newest arrival I thought we would do a little Kylie Cosmetics post!

This shade is 'Grape Soda' and it is in the velvet formula which is my most loved Kylie Cosmetics formula, it lasts such a long time and is so comfortable to wear on the lips.
If you have been around our little blog before you may have noticed that I am partial to a coloured lip. I just love them!

I've put these pictures together so you can see the colour in different lighting. I truly love this colour and it is one of the most perfect purples I have found. It isn't going to be everyone's favourite but for those who love a pop of colour on the lips then this is for you. 
I love wearing something like this as I feel like I can leave the rest of my face pretty basic as this is all the effort you need!

It is a purple with some grey undertones and I truly think this would suit all skintones, I mean I love it on my pasty ass! 

What do you guys think of this colour and the velvet formulas from Kylie?
Many congrats to Kylie and the rest of the family and we hope she has the best time becoming a new mummy!
Lots of Love,
G x
