Beaded Necklace and Vintage Floral Saucer

I have the tendency to buy matching things for my outfit and wear it out the store. It's instant gratification. And thanks to a black dress, I got this necklace for £10 at Designs in Hampstead.

Not sure what the lime beads are made out of but the center cluster is made from real pearls and Swarovski crystals.

And what else does it go with? This vintage floral saucer from the Hampstead Indoor Market for a quid. I'm collecting them to hold pillar candles and display dress jewelry. A nifty use for pretty saucers!

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick - Fétiche

I got suckered into the pretty advertisement for the the Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks. The colours are amazing but don't let the lipsticks fool you, they are actually sheer and shiny. Like Clinique's Black Honey, you get a smidgen of the tube colour as in the below pic.

It was a toss up between the lipstick modelled in the ad, Boy or Fetiche. Both similar except Fetiche is more mauve with no shimmer. I have naturally dark pigmented lips so Boy was a useless colour. It looked like I was wearing nothing but Vaseline.

It feels creamy and moisturing but it lasts four hours, tops. The Chanel consultant reakons that the colours change after application and if anything, it does look pinker but it's a subtle effect.

This is my type of lipstick because it just glides on and I hate bold lipstick because it's too high maintenance.

Fetiche is a gorgeous colour. For pale lips, Boy would be perfect as a pretty nude. I would recommend this range if you like wearing lipstick but don't want the hassle of smudges and precise application.
