It's empties time again! First up we've got No7 Beautifully Matte in Calico, I LOVE this foundation. I wear this every day for work. I really wish I had picked up another in time for me to finish this one but I've been hanging on until I had a voucher from Boots. Also empty is Maxfactor Wild Mega Volume Mascara which if you read my review, you'll know I'm not a fan of this. It's not empty.. I'm just throwing it away in. Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen is something I've had for a little longer than I want to admit. I'm rubbish at doing cat flicks and thought this may help, I love using this and it does make it a lot easier because it's a pen plus it leaves an intense, black eye line. MAC Studio Fix lash is also empty. Sad face. I've really liked using this, I was unsure at first as they aren't known for their mascaras, they also don't have the best reviews but I loved how this separated each lash without clumping or smudging. Lastly a battered pot of Rosy Lips Vaseline, big Vaseline fan over here!

The shades don't have any names and are just listed as S1-7 and M1-7 which I think is a bit boring as I do like a good shade name in palettes. The Matte shadows are creamy and really easy to blend. I love matte shadows and have tried my fair few in the past. I've been using these the last week or so for work, and have loved the finish they give, there is barely any fall out and they last for the majority of the day even without my trusty primer potion. I've been using M3 and M5 on my lid and in the crease, then using M7 along the lash line.

As you may already know it was the #sotonmeetup yesterday, twenty five bloggers from the south coast descended on Orange Rooms to meet, eat, drink and talk blog. It was a gorgeous, sunny day with clear blue skies and the perfect weather to sample some of the cocktails that Orange Rooms are best known for.

Today, as this posts 25 bloggers from around Hampshire are in Orange Rooms in Southampton to chat, eat some yummy food and chat all things blogging for the Southampton blogger meet up. I have been organising the #sotonmeetup for a few months now and I cannot thank everyone enough for coming as this was my first blogging event and my very first time organising one.

Ever since I found out Polyvore existed I've been making little wishlists so I can keep a check on things I've seen on different blogs. This week I have quite a high end wishlist to show you all. First up we have Guerlain Meteorites Blossom Collection in the shade Clair. I've seen this floating around quite a bit recently and I can't even describe how beautiful I think this is. Most recently I saw it reviewed on Gemma's blog www.missmakeupmagpie.com and she has totally sold it to me. Plus it'll look so lovely sat on my dresser.
Estee Lauder's Double Wear is well known in the beauty world. I tried a sample a good year ago now, I was really impressed with it but never purchased it. I was colour matched again last week and have fell in love with the finish and longevity again, it's just amazing. I've been matched to Shell but I'm going to try a few more counters so I get the right shade. Next we have the much loved and talked about Naked 2. This is the palette I originally wanted for my birthday but with it being over Christmas it was sold out everywhere so I was given the Naked 3 instead. Don't get me wrong, I love the Naked 3 and use it daily but I sort of want to get it's cooler toned sister too.
MAC Proenza Schouler collection has been so anticipated in recent weeks, I didn't get hold of anything when it launched on the Selfridge's website so I'm holding out for the MAC and Debenhams launch. I have my eye on Mangrove which is a coral red in a matte finish on the recommendation of Erin from erinlouisehunt.com, as she knows I love a bright, matte lip.
Lastly is a shimmer powder in Champagne Gold from Dior's newest Transat Collection which is based on a nautical theme. If you haven't already seen the posters for this, get on google and hit the search button. They are stunning.
I hate to think what my wishlist adds up too.. spoils the fun a little bit doesn't it?
Check back in June to see if I picked up any of my current wants!

I was really surprised at how it transferred onto my lips, I did wonder whether it would wash me out but I really liked it. For a matte finish it glides nicely on to the lips without tugging or making the application patchy. The first evening I had this, I wore it out for dinner with friends and it lasted a good five hours , I only reapplied once after finishing my meal and it didn't dry out my lips at all. If I didn't know any better I'd say this was more a satin finish than matte. I'm glad I bought Enchanted One as I really wasn't impressed with the other shades. I do have my eye on the Pearlglide Intense eye liner in Black Swan and a couple of the Extra Dimension eye shadows in Silver Sun and Sea Worship so if you see me tweeting about choosing make up over food, you know where I've been.
