Yesterday I headed into town in the hopes of getting a new pair of boots and the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. It was pouring with rain but I thought it would be worth it. Boy, was I wrong. Everything I was after was out of stock so hurrah for Topshop. Their makeup counter truly is a little ray of sunshine. The packaging is so gorgeous and I love how the nail polishes are displayed in a rainbow, it really makes it difficult to choose.
In the end I bought two products that scream ‘springtime’ to me. Possibly due to wishing winter would end already! This is ‘Green Room’ nail polish, a bright springy green that applies like a dream and I think actually suits my pale skin, and ‘Macaroon’ lipstick, a coral-pink which is opaque in one swipe and has a soft velvet finish.
I don’t have a picture of the lipstick applied – I still have seriously chapped winter lips so it looks awful but head to Secret diary of a Fashion Journalist for some lovely pictures of Macaroon in action.
What do you do to cheer yourself up on a rainy day?
