The boxes of joyMy lovely sister said to me the other day that she really liked one of my lipsticks and could we go and buy some for her. So at lunch time today, she came to join me on Clifton Triangle and we headed for the dreadfully inviting Space NK Apothacary. Luckily my Ndulge card arrived last night so if I did spend anything I could collect points on their really quite good loyalty card (collect points, 1 point per £1 and get 100 points and you get a £5 voucher). Oooh.

I’m a big fan of the Nars lip pencils and have two now – both of which look great, stay on for ages and when they fade, fade to a great tint rather than the lovely lipliner effect.

So today I branched out and tried 2 eyeliners.

Eyeliners and Lipstick Queen gloss

The teally glittery one is beautiful, as is the browny-goldy-glittery one. They both glide on softly and appear to not move at all once they are on. Lovely.

Also purchased is the Lipstick Queen Chinatown gloss in colour Crime. As said by the Lipstick Queen website

super moisturizing “draw on” gloss.
Yes! Gloss in a jumbo-sized pencil…
Welcome to Chinatown baby!
It comes with a jumbo-sized sharpener and the original artwork on the boxes and shade names
are all inspired by the Polanski film.
Crime – sheer hot pink

which upsets me now as I hate Roman Polanksi because he’s a shithead. However, the gloss looks wicked on. I am dead impressed.

and check it out, don’t I look glamorous with my pink lips and stuff.

OOOOOOOOH Suits you madam

My lovely sister purchased some very shexy and rather hot lipstick in Shanghai Express – a deep matte red – which just looks stunning on her. However, I really must not go in there again because there is some amazingly lovely stuff and I am really really taken by a new Nars palette which has some beautiful colours in the eyeliners – none of which I have – alongside 2 blushes – both of which look amazing – one is the totally famous Orgasm blush which does make me look awesome.
