Colours of Autumn

Hi Ladies!

I am back! Apologies for my extended absence. I have missed blogging and reading your comments!

I could not have come back at a better time than at the beginning of my favourite season, Autumn. I love the warm rich colours you see everywhere from a walk in the park to the clothes in the shops.

I have been reading the much awaited September issues of the magazines and have been very happy to see the trend for berry colours in make up, this is right up my street :)

I love all hues of berry colours especially dark pinks and purples and have alot of these shades in my make up bag/closet already.

However, I could not resist a couple of new purchases as I wandered around the shops last week. I picked up a beautiful Essie nail polish and a lip gloss from YSL.

The Essie Nail Polish (with flash):

It is called Angora Cardie (love the name!):
I also bought my first YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levre in number 4. YSL advertise this as a glossy stain and it is exactly that! It is a stunning plum colour perfect to see you through the colder months. It goes on to your lips very wet and runny but sets immediately leaving a beautiful glossy stain. Another bonus is that it has great staying power! With flash:

A couple of swatch of the nail varnish and glossy stain:
As you can see from the swatches, they make a great duo for the lips and nails! xoxo
