I managed to get hold of Reel Sexy from the Selfridges website - I had to pay delivery which was ridiculously steep for one lipstick BUT I do love the colour. It looks almost neon to me, and
I would describe it as a corally orange. It's much paler than Vegas Volt and more 'in-your-face'. It's the perfect colour to wear when I go to Wembley on Saturday to support Blackpool FC (the Tangerines) in the play-offs!

Red Racer arrived today and I love it already! In the tube it looks slightly more yellow-toned than Ruby Woo, and it has a sheerer, more moisturising finish. Applied, it appears more pink toned, strangely. Swatched on my wrist, it's the one on the left. I think it's more wearable and forgiving than Ruby Woo and certainly easier to apply on the hop. My new fave red lippie, I think!

My online Debenhams order finally arrived today after the long bank holiday weekend. I got MAC Dollymix, which has been on my wish list for ages, ditto the Nails Inc magnetic teal polish, and finally MAC Lightscapade from the Reel Sexy collection. Lightscapade doesn't have as much prominent veining as previous versions I've seen, but it still imparts a nice subtle glow on my NW20 skin as an all-over face powder.

I'm going to kick off by sharing my Nails Inc collection. There's about 90 or so there. I got the display stand from a nail supply store in New Cross and hung it on my bedroom wall - I may be easily pleased, but it looking at it does make me happy! Simple pleasures...
