Pretty in pink

I am in complete lock down in terms of spending; I have 101 things I want to buy/prom coming up/adventures in the summer that I can't quite afford and so, to not be in a never ending debt with my parents, I told myself I wouldn't buy anything.
Then a Boots 3 for 2 happened.
And you know that rare occasion when Boots have a 3 for 2 and you have a list of makeup that is as long as your leg and you just end up walking out with a bag of products of which the money should have been spent on your train tickets to London? But it was so worth it.
I was relatively restrained walking out with 3 things for my friend and 3 for myself, all following a very pink theme and all equally g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s.

Maybelline Colour Show in Copper Fizz
omg. I saw this on  blog and knew I had to have it. Apparently they've been out for years (I totally missed that band wagon) but I don't care-its so beautiful. Its uber shimmery-like glittery so there's quite bad fall out but use a good primer and its fine. It has a very creamy texture, a cross between a powder shadow and more of a cream base so as you begin to blend it out (I use my fingers) it becomes really soft and almost gel like. Its quite similar to the Stila Magnificent Metals Foil eyeshadow which I dreamed about for years (but due to it being £33 for one shadow-it never happened) so this is an awesome alternative for only £4.99. This is exactly the sort of shade I hope to wear for prom as my dress is a blush/peach/nude shade and I think rose gold eyes would look all kinds of awesome.

Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in East End Snob
This is fabulous-seriously. Its quite a dark-ish mauvey pink (sort of 90's style) but its quite natural so definetely can be pulled off for everyday. The formula of these is incredible: they apply so smoothly and last for bloody ages. I wear this on its own as it is not drying at all but I think you could also pair it with something like MAC's Lovelorn for a slightly more muted version.  I need to pick up more!

Rimmel Kate Moss in 08
I had had my eyes on this for ages, it looked like such a gorgeous neutral browny pink; perfect for every day where. It is  a slightly less shimmery alternative to MAC Peach Blossom (i.e my favourite lipstick) so is perfect for a slightly less glowy/shimmery look. It also looks really nice over the top of the lipliner for a more bold matte lip and I will definitely be getting  a lot of wear out of this on days when I want a muted lip (every day).

So there we have it-the products that have made me desperate to dress up and wear pink (and also buy a hella lot more makeup-oops). I would urge anyone to check these 3 beauties out-you won't be disappointed!
