I didn’t realise until this week that hot weather can mess with the internet too! Ours has been playing up so this post was meant to go out on Wednesday but wouldn’t upload in over five hours! I’m crossing my fingers the cooler weather means it’ll work now.

Anyway, I think I’ve been pretty good when it comes to buying makeup recently, I haven’t bought too much and I’ve actually got rid of quite a few things.

Embellishment is a fairly light colour, I would say it’s on the light end of the dark colour scale, if that makes sense. It definitely seens to be one that it depends on the light you’re in, at times it looks like a sort of lavender colour, others it’s definitely a darker ‘nude’ colour with a blue or purple tint.
