My new extensions should be here by tuesday/wednesday, so after that expect a big post of my hair! I'm so excited :)

Hair Ideas

For quite a while I've been debating dumping my platinum hair for something just a little bit more natural. I don't think I could bare going completely brown though, so I'm going to keep some of it, maybe just as highlights or something, but it's still going to be there :P

Was thinking something like this:

Should be done soon, spending the last of my birthday money on my hair! Terrible terrible!

Birthday Haul with swatches (12th February)

So so so! Number one of my backdated posts, this one from my birthday :)

Me and my boyfriend in the morning before travelling off to London to the wonderful world of Selfridges :P Excuse my very attractive face xD When I went in there I was seriously overwhelmed by all the colours and just EVERYTHING. Me and my mum were practically falling all over the lipsticks in amazement :P I must of been there for about 2 hours just staring at everything before I even decided (Poor Luke getting bored watching me flop around over makeup :P)

First to MAC, I couldn't decide on a lipstick even though I knew I wanted to buy one, so instead of getting one and then regretting it, I decided not to buy one and to wait until I definately knew.
In the end I settled for 2 plushlglasses (Wildly Lush, Ample Pink), a lipglass (Underage) and a blush (Pink Swoon). Before I got there I had debated getting Well Dressed, but on seeing it I didn't like the finish (Satins are not my thing at all) Once getting my little bag of happiness I looked over the other side of the store and saw the Illamasqua counter! Had totally forgotten it was there, but once I got there again, was too excited to even really look properly.

Then I saw something that caught my eye! Fable lipstick. It's actually gorgeous, and the staying power is pretty amazing. It's a matte so it's a bit drying but I teamed it with Ample Pink plushglass and it goes fineeee :)
The day before we went to London my mum had taken me to Benefit and I picked up the Bad Gal Waterproof eyeliner as well as the One Hot Minute bronzer. Both of them are absolutely awesome products, only thing that bugs me is the bronzers packaging is terrible and when you take the lid off product flies everywhere if you're not careful, even if the plastic cover is still inside! Swatches belowww :)

Me today :) My mummy and I went to Bluewater, most importantly to the MAC Counter in House of Fraser. I swear everytime I go to MAC I'm overwhelmed by everything and just want to buy everything!

I settled on Impassioned (Amplified Creme), which is an 'amped up fuchsia' according to the website (I'd say that's about right) and Creme Cup (Cremesheen) Which is a 'light blue pink'. It was between Creme Cup and Angel, but then when I swatched them both on my hand they looked remarkably similar apart from Creme Cup had a more... Well.. Cream finish. I don't like the feel of frosts, so Creme Cup it was.

Swatches are below :)

I also picked up a Revlon 'Contour' Brush, which I would say is comparable to the MAC 217, if just a little bit fluffier:

So that's it for todays mini haul, I've still got to do my backdated posts from January, so I'll probably do those after I post this :)

New Blog! New Youtube :)

Hey everyone, or no one as this post may be actually directed towards no one at the moment!
If you're coming from my tumblr, most of you may know me as xohollowheart :) If you're coming from youtube, you may know me as LVictoriaMakeup!
This is my new beauty blog, I've always read and basically stalked beauty blogs since I was about 15, and I've been interested in cosmetics since I was about 11, so I thought I might aswell give this whole blog/youtube thing a whirl!
If you're coming from tumblr, tons of people have asked me how I do my hair/makeup, where i get my makeup from, what I use etc, so I thought this would also be a good way to answer those questions, as well as make it and excuse to blog about everything I'm obsessed with!

Seeing as I have about a million videos/posts that I could backdate from Christmas probably, I'm going to do just that :P !

I hope you all enjoy my blog and videos, if you don't, sshhh!
