Favourite Things; Colours

1. Legion. I meeeeean...!I know this word gets thrown around a lot in the blogging/youtube world (and quite frankly, it grates on me), but I can't think of another word to describe it: I am OBSESSED with this show. AHHHH. The futuristic retro, clean, abstract, dark, colourfulness of it all has me completely hooked. It's all I think about. I'm not exaggerating. The amount I talk about it I'm surprised Harry hasn't told me I'm crazy. It's really making me want to up my photography game and implement lighting more. Plus, Aubrey Plaza is INSANE and I love it.

2. I see a theme forming... This colour combination:

(Can we just ignore that this was taken on my phone?)

3. This lipstick from Urban Decay:

I missed out on the Nars limited edition satin lipstick in 'Kiss Me Stupid' (shakes fist), but learned that this is the closest thing I'm going to get to it on Tempatlia. It's (comfort) matte, which isn't something I usually like, being a dry skinned person, but as the name suggests; its comfortable. And I think it rather suits my freshly red-ed hair!

My Makeup Collection & Ultimate Wishlist

My current makeup collection isn't very big by apparently every other beauty bloggers/a lot of other people's standards, but I kinda like it that way. I think I'd feel really wasteful if I had drawers and drawers full of stuff. If something runs out, I replace it, but I don't tend to have more than one of most things. Apart from eyeshadow palettes & nail polish. Whoops. I keep almost my entire collection in the acrylic storage set below, along with my brushes in a little glass next to it in my shower room. I then have eyeshadow palettes in a drawer in my living room as they are too big for the acrylic storage. Not an ideal set up, but it will have to do while we live in such a small space. I've been thinking of getting a pedestal mirror (in my Wishlist below) and moving it all downstairs to the bedroom. The only problem is that it's pretty dark down there, so I'm not sure if it's the best place to be doing my makeup! These are aaaaallllll the makeup/beauty things in my Wishlist at the moment. Most of it is out of my affordability range, so it's going to take a lot of time to get my paws on most of these, but I guess that's the test to see if I REALLY want them or not! I found most of these through Vivianna Does Makeup and Killer Colours, my two favourite beauty bloggers. Whenever they suggest something I pretty much instantly want it.

  1. Becca Shimmering skin perfector in Moonstone
  2. Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer
  3. Isadora Build Up mascara
  4. Urban Decay Moondust single eyeshadow in Solstice
  5. Urban Decay Vice cream lipstick in Gash (ugh, that name though!)
  6. John Lewis pedestal mirror
  7. eco tools air dry brush
  8. Nars Satin lip pencils in Palais Royalle, Majella & Luxembourg
  9. Urban Decay Moondust palette
  10. Zoeva Rodeo Belle palette
Some New Things

  1. Pacifica Persian Rose body butter
  2. Pixi Glow Tonic
  3. Urban Decay Vice cream lipstick in Bang

It's funny how everything always runs out at once, isn't it? I hadn't had a good body moisturiser in a while, I've been rationing my Pixi glow tonic for WEEKS now, and well, I kinda just fancied a new lipstick from a brand that I haven't tried before (I know this is blasphemy to some! "She hasn't tried Urban Decay?! Whaaa?!")

The Pacifia body butter is vegan and smells beautiful. It's really different to other rose scents I've smelled before, and trust me, I've smelled a lot of roses in my time so far. No matter how cliche it is, it's still one of my favourite scents. This is so heavily scented though, that I'm worried how my sensitive skin will react to it. Fingers crossed it will be fine! I'd also really like to try their Dream Big mascara, does anyone know where I could get hold of it in the UK? Pixi glow tonic is kind of self explanatory, just about every beauty and lifestyle blogger out there goes on about this stuff. I find it really helps my flaky (mmm, lovely) dry skin and definitely helps to create a better, less flaky, environment for makeup and just generally.

Oooogh I'm excited about this lipstick. It's an orange-red that kind of looks like an obnoxiously bright coral on me. It's nice and creamy, which is perfect for my on-the-dry-side lips. Obviously it's not going to last as long as the matte liquid lipsticks everyone seems to be wearing right now, but I don't mind re applying if it means my lips don't look like the surface of Mars by the end of the day. Nooooow I kinda want their new Moondust palette, or their Moondust single eyeshadow in Solstice. Uh oh.

And that concludes Did I just do a haul post?
