Thanks for all the suggestions!
I tried dying my lashes once and didn't like it all, they just looked too dark and unnatural. Maybe I should try a softer color, though. I have a very long, narrow face and kind of big eyes with long lashes to begin with and I always find that I look rather clownish if I put even more emphasis on my eyes, therefore I'm not a fan of black mascara. Although it sure helps when they look all red and tired. I'v been using clear mascara lately, just to give them some shape and I think I'll stick to it for now. Doesn't give me panda eyes in the heat either.

Me too! But I think darker mascara helps to enhance long lashes and draw attention to our eyes. (Which is a good thing, since I have an insanely high forehead. )

I have already posted this, but Mac is finally relenting and releasing Studio Fix Fluid in NC10/NW10 and NC13/NW13. I literally cannot WAIT because I love the formula of that foundation, but it's just TOO dark for me. YAY!

Apparently they're being trialled right now, so I didn't get to see them, but the girl in the pro store was telling me they're AMAZING. I literally can't wait. FINALLY!

I got annoyed that she decided to wait till i'd spent money on the NC10 full coverage foundation to inform me of the news. Damn her. That foundation is TOO THICK but I was just so desperate for a colour that matched my skin. ARGH!

^ So is London another one of those places with no customer service? You'd be able to exchange it here ...

The problem is that its the pro store, so I have to go to carnaby street in central london if I want to, and they close really early and it takes an hour to even get served. It's infuriating! Its very very very thick, and a great color, but oily and THICK!

^ I wonder if you could do it by phone/mail once the new shades come out?

Thats a thought, I'll have to see. I think we're going to be waiting a while before we see those new shades. They've not even been announced to the press yet...

urgh ... failure. i hate HATE having to go to london to buy pale makeup lol. i hate MAC for this, it's like, yeah we'll make really great makeup but you won't be able to buy it online and good luck trying to get it anywhere else, we'll sell it to makeup artists and no one else ... i hate that. is that not the point of girls who love make up, they are their own little makeup artist, why should they not be more able to get the right stuff ...

i'm sorry i actually get genuinely upset about rubbish like this lol.

FleurDeLys, how long does it stay? I'd like to try it, because it looks not really good when your legs are so pale, that you can see the veins

I really like the "Hawaiian Sun" powder by Jelly Pong Pong for just a little bronzed glow. It's very subtle (although the stuff itself looks like cacao in the box) and works on your face as well your body. I was reluctant at first because it looks so dark but it seems to work with any skin tone really and it also comes off easily, no rubbed off tan and long peelings.

You can always check out their site www.jellypongpong.com. You can order from there as well or you can go to places like ASOS or beautyboxx. I really recommend their gift bags. You get a lot of stuff for around 10£ to 12£.
