FOTN: Holiday drinks

Happy Easter everyone! Hopefully you are all enjoying a few relaxing days off. I've got a week off uni (although many assignments to do...) but its nice to not have anything on! Last night I had a few drinks with a friend at the pub, here is what was on my face...

 Urban Decay Naked Palette
MAC Lipstick in 'Plumful'
Essence Metal Glam Highlighter in 'Gold Digger'
Elf Blush in 'Berry Merry'

Now seeing as every man and his dog knows what the Naked palette looks like, let me focus on the star performers of this FOTN...

Elf Blush in 'Berry Merry 
MAC Lipstick in 'Plumful'
Essence Metal Glam Highlighter in 'Gold Digger'

If you've seen my other FOTD/FOTN posts, you will have seen this blush before. It's such a gorgeous plum colour with golden sparkle. It's probably one of the cheapest but most used blushes in my collection. The MAC lipstick is a new addition to the collection and I know that this colour is adored by many in the blogging world. Initially I was like meh, but now I see why everyone loves it. It's a lovely deep plum colour that looks quite glossy and sheer, but can be built up. I suppose I mostly buy statement lip colours these days but this one is so pretty, without being in your face. I feel like I'll be wearing this one a lot! And finally, the Essence highlighter. This one is also a new purchase and actually my first Essence makeup product. It's safe to say I am extremely pleased with this. It looked like a dupe of the Balm's Mary-Lou Luminizer so I had to get it. I used a powder brush to gently pick up some powder and sweeped it across my cheekbones - it gives such a gorgeous glow! For more info about this gem, check out Basmah's post on her fave highlighters.


I feel like the flash has washed out some of the colours a bit, but you get the idea. I hate that it gets dark so early now, taking pics at night is difficult!


No flash - you can see the true colour of the lippy a bit better. On my lids, I've used smog from the Naked palette as an all over lid colour.

And finally...


The perfume of the night - I adore this perfume and wear it all the time! 

Thanks for reading! I hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend :) xx

    1. It's such a gorgeous plum, perfect for the cooler weather. Yes, sadly they are not, but I am sure you could find a similar shade in a cruelty free brand :)
