MAC Lipstick Tag

You know how much I love a good tag and when my buddy Clare started a tag especially about MAC lipsticks, I had to get involved.

How many MAC Lipsticks do you own?
I currently own five. 
 What was your first MAC Lipstick?
Angel  – I bought it from Shona/
 What is your favourite finish?
What is your least favourite finish?Frost – I just don’t like it as much as the others.
What is your most used lipstick?
Although my favourite finish is cremesheen, my most reached for lipstick is actually a lustre finish and that is Syrup.

What is your favourite colour that MAC do?

Syrup or Fanfare
Is there a MAC lipstick you regret buying?
Nope. I love them all – just some more than others!
What MAC lipstick do you think needs more recognition?
Fanfare definitely! Clare made me and Lisa buy it in London and it is so beautiful!
 If you could only have one MAC lipstick, which one would you pick?
I’d have to say Syrup although Fanfare comes a close second.
Which MAC Lipstick is next on your list to buy?
I have a few – Impassioned, Snob, Vegas Volt…I really want to expand my collection!
I tag you all to do this tag; I am so interested to see what people put!

The Blogger Made Me Buy It

I haven’t done a tag for a while – shock horror – but when I saw this tag, I knew I had to! It is one of the best tags floating around and was thought up by Danniella at Famous In Japan. So here goes…


1)  Who are your most influential bloggers?  Who are the ones that you really rely on for reviews and swatches?
The ones I generally tend to go to for reviews are Sara and Gemma and swatches, definitely Gemma too. Clare doesn’t help either…
2) Do you buy a product solely as a result from one review from your favourite bloggers, or do you look for more reviews from others?
Nope. I have to look through a number of reviews before firmly deciding that is the one for me.

3) What is your most favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
Origins Drink Me Up Intensive Overnight Mask – it is incredible!

4) What is your least favourite item that you have ever bought as a consequence of blogs?
Definitely the Rimmel Apocalips – I have only kept one from the three I bought.

5) Name 5 products you have bought recently as a result of blogs.
Hmm, I don’t really cave into too many reviews but probably Origins Drink Me Up Intensive Overnight Mask, Caudalie Beauty Elixir, The Body Shop Hemp Hand Cream, NYC lipstick in Blue Rose and Vivo baked blush in Rouge Shimmer – the last two both because of Gemma!

6) Have you ever given into blogger hype?  If so, which hype?
Yes, MAC lipsticks, Caudalie Beauty Elixir, The Body Shop Hemp Hand Cream, Origins Drink Me Up Intensive Overnight Mask, Apocalips…
7) Have you ever avoided blogger hype?  If so, which hype?
Well, I avoided Baby Lips – then I won the whole set! So far, it is the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm – want it so badly though!

8) Is everything you buy based on blogger reviews or are there some items you buy without checking out a review?
No, but most things are – occasionally I do make impulse purchases without checking a review first.
I tag you all to do this – it is such a fun tag!

13 Things Before the end of 2013

The lovely Clare created this tag and I love the concept so was delighted to see she had tagged me. What 13 things do I want to do before the end of 2013?

1. I would like to have regular writing work with specific clients. I am currently on my second assignment for someone and I love working for them so hope this continues.

2. Following on from above, I’d like to continue to have steady work.

3. I’d like to downsize my collection and focus more on using things up.

4. I’d like to start thinking ahead to the future again and put 2013 as far behind me as possible.

5. If I have the money, book the tickets to some fantastic events.

6. Go to at least one more blog related meetup/event.

7. Condense my TBR pile down – far too many atm!

8. Do a whole wardrobe reshuffle – get rid of old clothes and buy some new ones! 

9. I want to have started my emergency fund – we are really bad and haven’t got one atm!

10.  Get on top of my emails once and for all.

11. Brunch or lunch date with my blogging bests

12. Make arrangements to see Sarah next year.

13. Stop buying candles…No, seriously. I have far too many!

I tag all of you to complete this – what do you want to happen?
