'Accidental' purchasing...

Oops, I popped into Boots and 'accidentaly' bought a new lipstick and nail varnish. A few posts ago I tried the Seventeen Gel Colour nail polish, which claims to last up to 8 days. This was just after three applications;

It actually lasted one day before chipping :0( I was super disappointed. So today I bought the Rimmel Salon Pro by Kate in 712, Rhythm & Blues. 

I LOVE this colour! Unfortunately I can't get a great pic, but it's almost black with a hint of blue. It goes on easy and only needed two coats, plus it dries crazy quick! Will let you know how long this one stays on for, it claims it can last up to 10 days, we'll see!
The Burts Bees lemon butter cuticle cream is something I use often. I get really dry cuticles that tend to split a little. This is one of my favourite nail products, it makes my cuticles and nails soft without being greasy, it refreshes and smells fantastic. Plus it is all natural and cruelty free!

Think I scared a few mums at school drop off with these lips :0) This is probably the other colour I wear most apart from red. In the picture above I'm wearing MAC Lip Pencil in Nightmoth and Collection Gothic Glam Lipstick in 2, Scorned. I also wear just the MAC liner on its own as it is long wearing and has a Matt finish. The lipstick is ok, it is quite wet when it goes on and if you try to blot,  it tends to wipe away. Needs less moisture and more pigment. 
The lipstick I bought today is the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in 101, Rossetto. I won't try it today as I'm already purple!

What was your last 'accidental' purchase? What are your favourite lipstick colours?
