Mandarina Pschitt, & Other Fabulously Named Make-Up That You May Need This Season


Max Factor Mini polish in Silver, Barry M polish in Cobalt Blue, By Terry lip gloss in Mandarina Pschitt


Throughout Summer, my nails were painted mostly with a mint green (Barry M, but there seemed to be plenty of versions of that gorgeous Tiffany Box shade). Into Autumn, I've replaced it with a darker blue. Blue with a striped brown/tan tee or a grey sweater goes perfectly. For a more conservative look, I've chosen this slate colour by Max Factor Minis (what a great way to test new colours without breaking the bank!) The sparkle in it reminds me of granite.

Bright lip colours work all year round. I've been searching for a vibrant orange for a while (I don't think Revlon sell Orange Flip over here in the UK? - as seen on the likes of Alicia and Bee), so when I came across this gloss, I couldn't resist. I've been avoiding gloss for a while, wondering if it doesn't quite add the "grown-up" factor, but I think a good quality gloss in a strong colour totally works. This orange is virtually neon - so keeping up with the whole colour blocking/neon trend from summer - & I think will look just fab when worn with a lovely long black or tan or camel coat. Bring it on, Autumn!
