Saturday Night

My absolute favourite day of the week is a Saturday, as I’m sure most of yours are.

We both spent the afternoon in the pool and steam room before spending a fair few hours getting ready for our night out, which is almost as fun for us as actually going out!

We managed to get our hands on some fabulous ready made cocktails from the one and only Marks and Spencer, Peach Bellini (as previously posted in Friday’s Cocktail Hour) and Cosmo Fizz.

The outcome of our day soaking in the pool and layering on tan and make up was this:

We had a minor shopping spree in the local boots and both ended up buying a new lipstick and a few various other items.

M pinned her hair back with a flower and used a few MAC pigments for her eyeshadow:

I had big wavy hair and also used MAC pigments but in a brighter colour:

As for the lipsticks…we bought 2 17 Mirror shine on lipsticks in Peace and Beehive.

M bought Beehive, which looks like this…

And comes out like this:

I bought one called Peace, which looks like this…

So bright!!!

But it actually comes out like this:

We were both REALLY impressed with the feel of the lipsticks. Neither of us have bought a 17 lipstick before and they felt really nice to wear and gave a really nice shine.

We will definitely be going back for more!

(Also coming up soon will be a review of their new foundation Miracle Matte, the 3 for 2 offer was too tempting!)

We were super excited to be out having cocktails and wearing our new lipsticks , particularly after being so good for the rest of the month after the Christmas splurge!!

What did you do for your Saturday night?? Did you get on the cocktails and put on your latest pretty dress??

Hope you had a good one ๐Ÿ™‚

    They're both MAC ones, M's is a few of the pigments from the Tartan Tale Smokey pigment set blended together and mine was a bright purple that they no longer do and blended with Contrast which is a dark navy. Sorry its not much help but that's all i know!
