Beauty Edit: My 2 Lipstick & Nail Polish Vices

We all have vices, be it chocolate, coffee, a few glasses of wine, a bit of retail therapy, lets face it we all have them. Mine is definitely chocolate, I can't look at a bar of Galaxy without devouring the whole thing. That then got me thinking, "Beauty Vices" we all have them (us beauty bloggers that is).

For me I'm sure it's pretty obvious, Mac Lipsticks & Essie Nail Polishes.

I have a serious Essie nail polish problem, the pictures above are just a stepping stone to the serious collection I have going on. Every season they just get me, in particular the new 2014 Resort collection, it looks divine. What can I say, my willpower really is being tested. You know how adults act when they see a new baby or puppy, well, that's how I am around Essie polishes, I know embarrassingly sad! My all time favourite shade, "Mint Candy Apple" was in fact my first ever Essie polish, I wholeheartedly blame that shade for my addiction haha.

My other beauty vice is Mac Lipsticks, it all started with Hue, a glossy pink nude and I never looked back. Now the majority of my collection is made up of bolder shades, my favourite being "Show Orchid", which is a hot fuchsia pink. Now, Mac lipsticks are expensive, but are such amazing quality, so smooth and creamy, plus the gorgeous vanilla scent and chic sharp bullet form packaging are just addictive. You can never just buy one!

What are a few of your beauty vices?

  1. Ooh I'm so jealous of your Essie collection! I have a measly collection of 6 so far, but I dream of rows and rows of gorgeous jewel and candy colours. Ahhhhhhh *goes off into a nail polish day dream* I completely agree about the MAC lipsticks. They're pricey but I'd much rather make the investment for the quality and range of shades.

  5. I am obsessed with MAC Blushes and own around 7 or 8. I'm not even 100% keen on the formula and much prefer Zoeva or NARS blushes, but I just can't stop buying the MAC ones!? I also love the Barry M Gelly Nail Paints and now own around 10 of these. Can you believe I don't own any Essie nail polishes, definitely something I need to invest in.
