Beauty Buys

After recently becoming obsessed with beauty bloggers, especially Fleur and Ingrid, I have been thinking more about my make-up collection and whether the products I have are the right ones, and best ones for me. 
I have always used the MAC moisture cover concealer, but have recently noticed it is too wet and leaves the area under my eyes looking too shiny. It also doesn’t cover up my dark circles well enough. So I decided to try the Studio Sculpt Concealer instead, which comes in the nicest little packaging. I really like it so far, and find it really easy to dab on with my finger (although I don’t know how anyone with long nails uses it, lucky I have short nails).

I also bought (as you saw in my last post) the O.P.I ‘you don’t know Jacques’ nail polish, which I absolutely love. I don’t have any brown nail polish, because I don’t really like brown, but this one is sort of a dark brown mixed with grey and it looks great on! 
I also got an O.P.I top coat, because I have been using a really cheap one for ages and it just doesn’t work. The O.P.I top coat is really good and keeps my nail polish on for much longer! 

I hope everyone had a great new years eve! Mine was really chilled, but we still had a ridiculous amount of Champagne! 2010 has been a mental year, I still can’t believe I did 3 years of Uni, it flew by! I’m looking forward to starting my grown up life in 2011. 
This time last year, I don’t think I even knew what a blog was, so I am very impressed with how successful it had been. Thanks a lot for reading, I really appreciate it! 
Happy new year!!!

    I don’t use concealer but I have great things about the MAC one, I hate their studio sculpt foundation though! Love OPI, I wish they were easier to find here. xo
