I'm a very lucky lady.
The lovely Mr P was working in New York all last week.
He had miserable weather (it rained the whole time he was there whilst we baked in glorious Blighty sunshine), he worked very hard, ate lots of meat (he has to get in his meat quotas whilst away from me and my vegetarian cooking), and had horrible return flight times but he still came home on Friday afternoon laden with gifts for everyone but himself.
I was treated to some of my favourite lipsticks. Oh Joy!
He got me a couple of lipsticks from MAC. My favourite Cremesheen lipstick, Creme Cup - so pretty, so pink, so right for summer - this one I will NOT destroy by leaving it on a boiling hot windowsill.
He also got me a Satin Lipstick in the colour Myth, which I haven't tried before but it's part of MAC's new Fashion Sets range which picks the most popular colours in different countries - Myth is apparently the number one selling MAC lipstick in Russia!! It looks a bit orangey in the picture (too orangey for crows!), but it's a really pale nude colour in real life, quite nice and again a very good colour for summer especially when I normally go all out for pinks.
He also got me a Revlon lipstick that you can't get here in the UK (well I couldn't find it anyway so please let me know if I'm wrong), it's called Love That Pink and I'd heard great things about it whilst on my daily blog round-up.
It is a proper good pink colour, really deep and lovely, not too bright, not too brash but pitched just right for probably anyone. I think this one is going to end up on the favourite lipstick list, I might even have to campaign with Revlon to bring it to the UK lipstick wearing population.
I also got a lovely coral-pink MAC nail polish in the colour Impassioned. Cor, it looks right lovely doesn't it but I'm currently wearing Barry M nail paint in Coral (No. 296), which is so bright and sunny, so it will have to wait to be tried out.
