collection - my lipsticks ♥

I'm definitley a lipstick girl :) I usually wear nude colours but during autumn and winter I come out of my rutt and warm to purples, reds and deep colours. My skin is usually porecelain white, so now and again I enjoy being a bit playful with my dark colours! I collect lippies, and here's where I am so far, give and take a few. I've lost my Viva Glam Gaga lipstick and Ravishing (sniff sniff) but you get the general gist i'm sure! Here goes -

 'Rose Maiden L/E', 'All Styled Up L/E' (identical to my Viva Glam Gaga!), 'Fabby', 'Girl About Town' (This is much brighter than it looks ;) , 'Creme de Nude'

And there you have it! Bare in mind that I did get a relatively good discount on high end products when I was working as a Make-up Artist, but I love collecting lipsticks of all types. My favourite lipstick of all time is probably 'Creme De Nude', but I do love all of my colours! Any reccommendations of lipsticks I should try or opinions on my colours? Do let me know :)

All my love, Orla.


I believe every new blog deserves a little introduction. So here it is, hiya! I'm Orla, an almost 19 year old from Northern Ireland, and I am postively obsessed with anything beauty or fashion related. I've wanted to do this for quite a while, but it was never good timing espiecially with A-levels and all that malark! But i think now is the perfect time to introduce my wee blog to the beauty community. I worked as a make-up artist over the summer with a company, but it wasn't really for me. Beauty is my favourite hobby, I love collecting it, looking at it, playing with it, but a career in it was a differernt story. I now work in a care home from disabled people, and it's my dream job. I am going to be studying nursing next year, hopefully in Edinburgh! I'm sure you'll find out a bit more about me as the blogging goes on, I'm so excited about getting involved.

All my love, Orla.
