Katy Perry O.P.I Collection

I mentioned a few posts back,that I would be providing some reviews and swatches.Today I will share with you swatches from the Katy Perry O.P.I Collection.(I received this set as part of my valentine gift from the boy)I hadn't tried any O.P.I polishes before this collection.

Without further ado, the collection.

From left to right The One That Got Away, Teenage Dreams, Last Friday Night, Not Like the Movies.

Two coats of The One That Got Away and Teenage Dreams were applied. Three coats of Last Friday Night and Not Like The Movies.

My favourite colours from the collection are The One That Got Away and Teenage Dreams,I will be investing in full sizes bottles of these. I have to say I am very impressed with O.P.I,the polishes and Katy Perry.I am looking forward to trying out their other shades and the new pirates collection in May.I found the polish applies really well and dries quickly. O.P.I are also a cruelty free brand which is great.

Viva Glam Cyndi

This lipstick is rapidly becoming one of my favourites. I got this at christmas along with Creme Cup.

This is what MAC say Cyndi is a high-lustre finish and a light coral-red colour.

I really like the colour of this lipstick and find it, the perfect shade for this time of year. If you like wearing reds and want a shade that is subtle yet pretty, this is the shade for you. I haven't included a  full swatch of me wearing it.I find it tends to look different on everyone.This lipstick is creamy and very well pigmented. I can wear it all day and rarely have to reapply. I would definitely repurchase if it wasn't limited edition.

Dorothy Bubble Bar Review

As I mentioned in a previous post, for christmas I got some goodies from lush. This bubble bar was my first bubble bar from lush.

Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Ylang Ylang Oil ( Cananga oodorata), Orange Flower Absolute ( Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Gardenia extract ( Gardenia jasminoides), *Benzyl Benzoate , *Linalool, Colour 42090, Colour 14700, Colour 15510 * Occurs naturally in essential oils

What Lush Say  

Any friend of Dorothy is a friend of ours. This spring, we're taking you far from the rain and grey clouds to somewhere over the rainbow. Your bath-water will be as blue as the skies over munchkinland and the exotic scent of ylang and sweet figs will make you want to go skipping off to see the wizard. A better day awaits you at the end of our rainbow

My Thoughts
My bath water was certainly sky blue and the scent of the water was very refreshing and sweet. This bubble bar would definitely work for a morning bath  or a relaxing soak at the end of the day. I used all my bubble bar in one bath but I am certain you could get multiple uses from one bar.It's very reasonably priced and I will definitely be repurchasing this.
