Bravery and Colour :)

why am i beaing brave??

cause im going to do a 'before' shot....and an 'after' shot


and that means a yucky photo!!! LOL

so here is a before makeup the makeup, my hair flat and 'not done'.....looking very pale and quite sickly (no im not just naturally quite pale)


im adding a before photo, so you can see what a difference makeup makes!!!!
it can open up your eyes, even out skin tone...add warmth to your skin and a million other things!!


what a huge difference hey?!?!

anyways....that photo is from a previous post....this post is about showing you the other colours from Lime Crime

so i shall start with COSMOPOP
(pale orange)

i actually quite like this one, but i do think it looks better in photos than in real the colour though!!

Next is D'Lilac....this is so fluro!!!

this one i actually think i prefer face to face...the colour is a little odd on camera :)

here im holding the you can see that what you see in the tube is what you will get on your lips...pretty cool!!

here i had kissed a tissue to tone it down a bit, plus the sun light has washed it out!!

its still quite bright though....quite pretty!! i like it with smokey eyes!! of my fav's (as you know i LOVE pink lipstick)

this one is from my original purchase that i have posted about before...its called Great Pink Planet and is a baby pink (very dont need a lot)


so far from all the lipsticks i have purchased from Lime Crime, my favourites would be
1. Great Pink Planet
2. Centrifuchsia (in the very top photo-fuchsia colour)
3.Airbourne Unicorn (not in this post but its a purple)
and probably also Cosmopop

it's not that i dont like the others cause i love them's just that i would wear these ones a bit more!!

Hope you enjoyed looking at the photos!!
just so you know....these were all taken in the same day...same smokey eye, the only thing that has changed in the photos is the lipstick and the blush (for cosmopop i had a coral/bronze colour blush....and for the others i had a pinky coloured blush)

Love always

Animal in you :)

so i heard about a test you can take called

The Animal In You....

its something that Dr. Phill was talking about on his show and you answer a few questions about yourself...HONESTLY...thats the key, you have to be honest with yourself....and then it tells you what type of animal you are!!

and here is my answer :)



Careers and Hobbies

Law enforcement
Medical fields
Trial Lawyer
Team sports
Outdoor activities

Famous Wolves

Christian Slater
Bill Clinton
Hillary Clinton

The rugged wolf is athletic, good-looking and brimming with self-confidence. A close relative of the domestic dog, it is stronger and more aggressive, managing to generate notoriety wherever it marks its territory. The wolf's dark reputation is mainly due to jealousy of its consistent success in work and romance. A wolf in full stride is quite impressive. Firing orders at subordinates while on the phone to customers, no one can get the job done quite as efficiently as the wolf.

With an innate understanding of the value of teamwork, it's always ready to take its place in the chain of command either as leader or as simply a member of the pack. When a wolf decides to innovate, it makes sure that it has the backing of a capable team. The wolf is clear-headed and strong-minded, always willing to compromise in the interests of getting a job done.

Wolves are facially expressive and readily communicate their emotional states with body language. They work hard at developing their social relationships, although unlike their cousin the dog they are quick to anger when they sense threats to the social order. When confrontations occurs, they sometimes react suddenly and violently, barking displeasure at offending subordinates. Close companions know to avoid their biting tongue until they resume their normal gregarious behavior.

Wolves are intensely ambitious and never shy from hard work. Socially adept, they function well in leadership and management roles as well as in jobs requiring vision and strength of character. Being a natural motivator, their instinctive understanding of group dynamics serves them well in goal-oriented tasks.

As bosses, wolves demand absolute loyalty and they provide the same allegiance to their employees. Their ability to perform under pressure helps them attain the highest executive levels, and with strong communication instincts they maintain a constant stream of notes, letters, and email to coworkers. Their instinctive understanding of the chain of command makes wolves excellent soldiers or law enforcement officers.

how funny is a wolf :)
have a bit of fun if you want and go take the test for yourself....

Mad Men

so here is a tv show i've recently been introduced to (im watching it on dvd)
it took me a few episodes to get into first i thought it was a little dark and boring...and i hated how a lot of men cheated on their wives...seriously it felt like no one respected the institution of marriage!!!

but then i fell in love with the show...i Love the really start to feel their pain and their joy...I LOVE THE FASHION....gosh i really am into things from the 50's/ 60's....

its a drama, and you would want to watch it when you have time to that you can really pay attention....
there are parts i dont particularly like...but overall i like watching things from years gone by (well set in history...but its made now)

here is some of the main characters...the 2 in the middle are like the main couple...Don and Betty Draper...

the men from the office, they work in advertising

seriously i wish we had more fashion from that era...i would so wear this dress!!!!

gorgeous cover on Rolling Stone magazine...

2 of my all time favourite characters....Don Draper and also Joan (Christina Hendricks...who you would prob notice from previous posts...she was one of my red hair inspiration)

love the 60's

what a gorgeous couple they make!!

the gorgeous Joan who i think is one of the most beautiful women on the planet!!

i want that dress!!!

i also want that green dress!!!

dont think that guy is meant to be in the background :) lol...this must be a pic off set...cause he looks dressed for this era :)

its amazing how the women are treated in this series and it goes to show how far this world has come as far as equality and womens rights!!!! gosh there was so much sexual discrimination back then towards women!! they were seen as pieces of meat sometimes (i know there are still elements of that these days...but nothing like what is portrayed on the show)

they also smoke so much (i did find out that they arn't real ciggarettes in the show...there is no nicotine in them because they have to smoke so much on set that wouldve been so bad for the actors health) but in the show they smoke in bed, at dinner, in the work office etc etc...its really funny to look back on!!

the wonderful cast...they have won so many awards in America!!

Betty...whose name in real life is January Jones (cool name hey)

this woman can never put a foot wrong!!

more awards!!

now to my 3 favourite characters....firstly Don Draper
of course any women on the planet would have to admit he is a highly attractive man :)
plus a very intriguing man....

he makes the work place very interesting....

now his beautiful wife Betty Draper
she is such an interesting character, so dark and sad yet so sweet and perfect...
just wish her husband was faithful :(

and lastly of course...the wonderful Joan.....she makes this show...her character is amazing...strong and bold, fiery yet sweet!! Love her....

i even channeled her a bit at a recent wedding we attended :)
red hair and purple dress :)
maybe i can be a modern day Joan :) lol

so yes, im enjoying the show and am currently watching season hoping it just gets better and better

go and watch Mad Men :)

Red- Lime Crime lipstick-Retrofuturist

Bright Retro Red for all the pinup girls out there! This true red lipstick leans neither blue nor yellow, which makes it is suitable for all skin tones. This shade combines lipstick and lipstain for prolonged wear. As seen on Cat Deeley of So You Think You Can Dance.

this is what the website description of Retrofuturist says.....and this is how it looks on me;

its definately red.....and definately LONG LASTING....its kinda hard to get off because its stains your lips!!

it has good colour dont need a lot and the colour is strong!!

one thing i do have to say is that it is more on the yellow side i think!! i compared it to some other red lipsticks and because im a cool skin toned woman...i need to wear more blue-based reds so that they dont clash with my colouring....even though this is meant to be a "true red" and neither yellow based or blue me its more yellow based and i find it doesnt quite sit right against my skin!!

i would wear it occasionally because it does'nt look terrible....but i think i would mainly use it for shoots in the future on some warm skin toned models :)

it would suit their skin tone better!

cheesy big grin :) lol

so i still love Lime crime lipsticks...and over time you will see me wear more and more of them....the red just isnt one of my favourites!!

Love HollieD
