Newbies..

'Costa Chic' lipstick from Mac.

I can't believe I didn't own this, it's the most perfect coral shade.


It's a frost so it has some dimension to it, but it doesn't really apply frosty to the lips.


It's in the same colour family as 'Jazzed' and 'Ever Hip', but much more brighter, vivid and tiny bit darker in tone. I will do some swatch comparisons for you soon. It's just beautiful and perfect for Summer, although I have been wearing it in this dull miserable weather too.
I have worn it every day since, and EVERYONE asks what lipstick I'm wearing and notes it down to buy it. Check it out!




Black leather bag - Topshop £45 on sale from £95

I needed a nice new black bag which was for everyday, it needed to be big but not hefty, I love the braided detail, and the quality of the soft leather, and at a bargain price I could NOT resist.




Semi precious hoop earrings from Topshop. £12.50

Topshop have a beautiful range of jewellery at the moment, I nearly got 10 more pairs but restrained.
I LOVE the colours and the odd shapes of the stones on these earrings, I am inspired to make my own in the same style.





Did you get any newbies recently? I just can't stop. Shopping makes me happy.

I NEED to get that lipstick! At first I though it would be to bright but you in your swatch it looks perfect!

@Chic Geek, I restrained because I thought it was going to be too bright too, but it's totally wearable, it's perfect.

I love those semi precious earrings! I am so into corals and after seeing the swatches I definitely need Costa Chic in my life :) x

Little Rus said...

Great finds! I love the lipstick and now need to see and try it.

Uhm... Shopping makes me happy, too. The bill that comes with it doesn't, though ;), so I window-shop a lot these days. :)))
Having said that, I did find some beautiful things recently and will eventually show them to the blogging world. :)

ellamarie84 said...

omg I've been thinking the same thing, I have no restraint lately..just can't stop the shop :) Luckily I've been more into shoe shopping than makeup lately..but not like I need more of either! I love that new handbag..whatta deal!

I have been wanting this lipstick for a long time, it looks so beautiful! Reminds me of summer.

EllysMakeupbag said...

I want to get all the peachy colours of the YSL range for summer, MAC jazzed is my all time favourite colour for summer! I bought some nice gold plated earrings from Liberys.

Jo said...

Bags are my weakness and that one is LUSH! £45? A bargain i say!!

Shopping also makes me happy - but i still haven't been paid since Christmas and i'm still spending! EEEEEK!
