My Vital Statistics

I just thought I’d make a quick post about my “vital statistics” so you can decide whether or not the products I review or swatch will have similar (and hopefully) satisfactory results.

  • My skin is bizarre,  I’m prone to blemishes but can also get dry skin on my T-zone.  This means facial makeup can often cling to my dry patches.  I think I’m about NC15 in terms of MAC foundations,  and the lightest shade in all others I’ve tried.
  • I have an Ivory complexion and many of you other pale girls will know that finding the correct shade can be incredibly difficult,  but I’m not one to compromise so don’t worry about me recommending anything that’ll make you look tan-tastic.
  • My eyelashes are very dark and dense but unfortunately they’re rather short,  I dream of long fluttery lashes reminiscent of bambi.
  • I use Lush’s caca noir henna in my hair to achieve a natural dark brown colour and to improve its general condition.  My hair is centre parted and inline with the bottom of my shoulder blades,  so not ridiculously long but not exactly mid-length either.
  • I’m on the cusp of being 5″5 but I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to reach the 5″6  mark since I’m still growing.  Think tall thoughts.  Currently I’m sitting at around 7.5-8 stone and I’m perfectly happy at that size,  I feel healthy and full of energy.

So I think that’s it all,  I covered everything I could think of but if you have anymore questions just post them below and I’ll try my best to answer them. 

I feel like a bit of an idiot and not too sure if I want to admit this online,  but the reason I haven’t made any new posts in so long is because I’ve lost my mobile.  It’s been missing for 9 days I think,  and I use it for taking pictures since I lost the charger for my camera.  BUT,  when I do find it and I know I will,  I’ll be uploading reviews and swatches for Diorskin Nude Foundation,  Diorskin Nude Glow Complexion Enhancer, MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer,  MAC Select Moisturecover Concealer,  Chanel Coco Rouge Shine Lipstick,  Chanel Coco Rouge Lipstick,  and Burberry Eyeshadow (Rosewood!).  Yes that’s a lot I’ve got to do, but, once I’ve got my phone back that will all be done,  so keep watching.

UPDATE:  Okay,  I’m returning from my family holiday tonight.  So I’ll have a chance to look for my phone when I get home and put those swatches up over the next week.  Also I just had a brainwave, “A trio of eyeliners” I’ve got plenty of them kicking about so I may as well 😀
