So yesterday I made the age old mistake of stopping by Mecca on the way to meet a friend and I may have impulsively made two purchases.
|Hourglass - Femme Nude Lip Stylo - No.5 Gold Peach - $39|
Since I changed jobs, I'm meant to wear very natural makeup. I'm going to confess that I've been struggling. I'm all up for a natural look, but I love playing with different colours and going for bold eyes. So I wanted some extra makeup to play with and keep it special. The lovely sales assistant showed me a lot of different things, one being the Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo No.5 and I really, really liked it!
It's this gorgeous nudey peach with a hint of shimmer to it. With a satin finish it's a natural but better than natural look. I'm excited to play with this and see what different lip liners do to this colour. See it online here.
|Byredo Parfums - Gypsy Water Perfume Oil Rollerball - $85|
Mecca's website describes it as:
"Gypsy Water is a glamorization of the Romany lifestyle, based on a fascination for the myth. As this wears on the skin, warm elements begin to flicker beneath the cool and sharp ones like the glowing embers of a campfire – golden amber, creamy vanilla and luscious sandalwood. A warm, soft, dreamy skin scent emerges, still with lovely cool traces of juniper, lemon and incense wafting over the top. The roll on perfume oils are alcohol free."
Im awful at describing scents but it is fresh and warm and lovely. Being an oil, it should last really well and I'm holding that's the case! I'll keep you updated.
Thanks for reading!
