NYX Round Lipstick swatches - Paris and Tea Rose

Recently I've had a big dilemma when I was deciding what NYX lipstick colour to buy. It's difficult to choose from about 70 colours, when the shades on the website might look completely different on your lips. I've spent hours searching beauty blogs for some good swatches. At the end I've picked 2 shades - Paris and Tea Rose. I'm not sure which one I prefer the most. I know they might look very similar, but Paris is more pinker and Tea Rose is more browner or I'd say it has a salmon colour on me. Both lipsticks are very pigmented, matte colours with no shimmer and they have creamy formulation.

....and now I've decided to help someone else with mine swatches:

I hope this helps to make your decisions a little bit quicker and easier :)

My purple dress in action or another wedding outfit

It's been a month since I blogged last time, but I was extremely busy so I have a little excuse :) Hopefully I'll catch up soon and add some new make up posts - I actually plan to do a swatch post next week, so keep an eye on my blog :)

You might already know this dress from one of my last posts... I'm so happy that I went for the purple not the black ones. I combined it with the black and silver accessories and I think I couldn't have done better - I got so many nice compliments :)

dress - Warehouse, shoes - New Look, earrings, ring - Debenhams, clutch - I do not remember...

Make up - I'm wearing basically the same look as you could see in my previous post, but I haven't used the Tan Barry M Duzzle Dust in my inner corner, but Mac Naked Pigment, added some falsies on and on my lips I'm wearing Sleek Amethyst lipstick with Mac Dazzleglass in Money Honey (apart from the last picture).

And one more shoot with my lovely hubby :) x

FOTD/ OOTD - Made of honour

Hello my lovely ladies :) I've got another FOTD/ OOTD post for you again. I know I haven't posted about my nails for a long time, but I'm wearing gel nails at the moment and I feel it isn't really necessary showing you fake nails even though I quite like them :)

Back to the main topic of this post - my outfit and make up I was wearing on my little sister's wedding.  I have to be honest - I didn't do the make-up myself and I got treated by the make up artist, the same guy who did my wedding make up (the original post here). He's done really good job with my eyes, but I had to change the lips to a nude colour straight away. I'm not sure what brand eye-shadows he used, but I think it wasn't very high end. Well, I didn't really mind as they lasted all night together with my all time favourite foundation Estee Lauder - Double Wear!

The dress is from a wedding salon in Slovakia, where my sister got her wedding dress from. They were made of silk, so soft and floaty.... I felt like a fairy when I was wearing them :)

one pose in the style of Pippa & Kate Middletons :)

earrings - Claires UK

So there you go :)
