On a Saturday I am usually the first to wake up so I thought I'd take the opportunity with no one about to paint my nails ready for the party I'm going to this evening. I hate the smell of nail varnish so I painted it in the bathroom before going to the front room to watch the Saturday morning cooking programmes.

I also decided to harvest these chili peppers before the frost kill them all!

New lips!

Finally decided on the red lipstick!
I came home from work and found my online order on the table and just slapped it on over worn off foundation and tired eyes. I was initially quite shocked when I finished applying the lip liner and lipstick, the colour is very vibrant and pigmented. It's still on now after dinner, so it does have real staying power!  

I'm wondering if anyone can guess what brand and colour I have on?  :)

Sleek Rose Gold Blush a dupe for NARS Orgasm?

Unfortunately when I had the opportunity to buy NARS Orgasm I went for an eyeshadow instead LOL so cannot make a comparison for you ladies but I've read it is very similar. Here are some pics and swatch, what do you think?

The blush is quite pigmented, gold shimmers with a pinky red undertone.

Lovely isn't it? I think it's slightly more red than Orgasm but I'd be interested to know whether you ladies think it is a dupe so I can pat myself on the back for saving that £20!!

Available from or superdrug for £3.99 bargain!
