A-MAZING right? Yes. I have ordered a few and will get swatching! I have a fair bit waiting to swatch which I plan to do ASAP, although my other passion has been getting in the way… Final Fantasy XIII-2, Squee! Loving this game so much (I probably spent a good hour trying to catch a Green Chocobo last night!)
Wonder where I’ve been? Hiding under a rock? Well, kinda- I have a new obsession (me, obsessed much? never!) with The Hunger Games. Like full on -read all 3 books in a few days and have start them all over again- obsession.
I’m seriously in love with Peeta- TEAM PEETA ALL THE WAY! *fan-girl squeal* *cough* anyway… To celebrate the up and coming movie for The Hunger Games, China Glaze is releasing Colours from the Capitol, a collection of colours celebrating each of the 12 districts (or so says the clever readers over at The Hob)
In keeping with the powerful themes and messages of the story, the collection of nail polish will be inspired exclusively by one of the book’s distinct settings- the Capitol of the nation of Panem. Awash in lavish fashion, food, and entertainment, Capitol citizens enjoy extreme cosmetics and body modifications, bold wigs, and outlandish costumes. – Lionsgate
The China Glaze Colours From The Capitol collection releases on March 1st just in time for the movie launch on March 23rd. Let the countdown begin!
Until next time, may the odds be ever in your favor!
So we’ve come to the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, well done for everyone who got involved in some way or who picked up a pink product (from everyday food products in Asda to premium beauty items to pink related clothes and goodies), lets hope this has brought us one step closer to finding a cure.
Yesterday Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple Inc passed away. He will be sorely missed. He was a man for our generation and lived every day to the fullest and will never be forgotten.
Excerpts from President Barack Obama’s statement:
Steve was among the greatest of American innovators — brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it. By building one of the planet’s most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity. By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun. And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike. Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, it’s time to think pink girlies!
The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. [Wikipedia]
Various companies such as Elemis, Estee Lauder, Clinique and Bobbi Brown are releasing limited edition pink products to raise money with a percentage of the sales going to breast cancer charities.
The first item on my list to grab from the limited edition collections was the Elizabeth Hurley Pink Ribbon Collection lipstick and clutch bag from Estee Lauder. There are two version; the Elizabeth Hurley Pink Ribbon Collection with a medium-light shade Lavish Pink and the Evelyn Lauder Pink Ribbon Collection darker pink Evelyn Wildly Pink.
Estée Lauder will donate 20% of the suggested retail price of its Pink Ribbon Collection to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® is dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and translational research worldwide.

I preferred the lighter shade Lavish Pink when I swatched it on the back on my hand but I had no idea how much I would love this colour!! As it’s a Pure Color Crystal Lipstick it’s the perfect balance between sheer and opaque with a subtle shimmer and doesn’t look “too pink” on the lips.
If you manage to find these in store I would snap them up quickly; my local counter in Debenhams only received 4 and it seems to be sold out on the esteelauder.co.uk web store.
