Who ordered a bottle?

Here we have products of the week again.

I am loving bright lippies this week and we have a gorgeous Creme finish from Revlon here called Pink in the Afternoon. It's a gorgeous pastel pink with a hint of coral and has a retro feel to it if applied intensely. Above I am wearing it very sightly and it works pretty well that way. So creamy and pigmented!

Bright nails are here to stay. I know I previously said I did not like the consistency of Miners Nail Paints, but the one in Rio Pink is a dream to apply. It is such a gorgeous shimmery Barbie Pink color. OPI's Lunch at The Delhi is to die for! It has a hint of red, pink and coral and such colors steal my heart ♥ This one I won in Tugba's giveaway :)

My love for YSL's cream eyeshadow in Amethyst Grey continues. Here I am wearing it as a base, topped up with Gosh's Effect Powder and MAC Nobility in the crease. I have always adored Kim K sporting silver eyes but I usually don't sport such 'bright' colors as they contrast with my complexion but I am totally enjoying it for now.

I have also been trying out Artdeco's Perfect Volume Mascara for quite a while and it is getting closer to being my Holy Grail. It darkens my lashes, lengthens them well and because the formulation is not glossy or clumpy, it is almost impossible to clump lashes with this.

This automatically leads to separating the lashes and maintaining their volume. It dries pretty quick and ends up looking dry just like natural lashes but better. Plus its waterproof hence great for summer! Highly recommended - you can't get better than this for £9.40.

However the highlight of the week, reflecting the title of the post is this strange bottle above. Imagine receiving a glass bottle all wrapped up opening it to see it was not something you ordered from eBay but a glass bottle with a message in it. Yikes - I was so freaked out and not ready to open it at all.

Turned out this was another one of Aussie's innovative attempts to send an invite for the Miracle Moist Hair event next month - phew! No one can beat Aussie and their creative team :) Way to go Aussie!

What are you loving this week?

WOW. I would have never guessed that the bottle was an invitation. I would have probably threw it out becuase it's kinda sketchy. AH, I wish that I could buy Art Deco stuff near me >.< Oh, I'm having a giveaway on my blog if you are interested

I love pink! Love the revlon lip. If ArtDeco is close to HG it must be good. It really does look natural but intesify your lashes. love it!
