Nยฐ7 Shimmering lip/eye SPF stick

image

image

This Nยฐ7 eye and lip shimmer stick is so creamy and long lasting! It also contains an SPF/UVB 30 (most  lightweight SPF lip products contain just a 15) and gives the lips and/or eyelids a flattering sweep of delicate shimmery bronze.

ยฃ7.50 (3g)  – Boots

Clinique – Super city block (oil-free)

image

image

image

The Clinique city block is an excellent all rounder SPF40 face primer for full sun protection. It comes out like a beigy cream but when blended into the face/neck goes clear which then leaves your skin a none greasy summer glowy canvas ๐Ÿ™‚

ยฃ18 (40ml)

Liz Earle skin repair moisturiser in ‘Light’

image

Like most Liz Earle products this moisturiser in ‘Light’ has been a god send for my oil to combination skin! As I am prone to spots I needed an everyday face moisturiser that was light enough to not disrupt my skin (Spots!) Yet rich enough to hydrate my skin with all the botanical and goodness that Liz Earle packs into it’s skin products such as Borage, Avacado and Echinacea . Leaves my skin velvety, matte and soft ๐Ÿ™‚

ยฃ20.25 (50ml)

Liz Earle sheer tint primer

image

image

The Liz Earle sheer skin tint (I use shade ‘Bare 01’) is a wonderful tinted under makeup primer which gives a light-sheer coverage while controlling excess facial oil. The formula has a light protection of SPF 15, I often wear this alone or if you are conscious of looking greasy then wear a dusting of face powder on top for a more matte look..:)

Current beauty favourites!

Hi guys!

How are we all?

So as it’s a wee bit late to do an ‘April beauty favourites’ and too early for a ‘May beauty favourites’ I thought I would give u a run down of my current favourites! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tony Moly – Banana hand cream

image

image

I am in love with this gorgeously cute Korean banana hand cream! Smells like those foamy banana sweets I had as a kid and is very moisturing and non sticky! I got this in a recent Korea/UK beauty swap (check out my blog post).
If you’re from the UK they sell these on Amazon ๐Ÿ™‚

EOS lip balm (Strawberry)

image

Another recent beauty swap (check out my UK/USA beauty swap post) where I was lucky enough to get one of these ๐Ÿ˜€ Hard to find (and expensive) in the UK but I love the formula of these…nearly all natural and are cruelty free! Keeps my lips chap free all year long! ๐Ÿ™‚
In the UK they can be bought at Topshop, Selfridge’s and at http://www.cultbeauty.co.uk

Batiste dry shampoo (Cherry)

image

For someone like me who has very thick hair that gets greasy quick this dry shampoo is a life saver! No other dry shampoo works (and smells) as good as Batiste!
They sell these everywhere! ๐Ÿ™‚

Too Faced shadow insurance (eye primer)

image

This is a sample size but boy does this last a long time! If you wear eye shadow especially vibrant colours I really recommend this one by too faced, it really makes your shadows look great and last for ages.
Buy from Debenhams, boots or at http://www.toofaced.com

Liz Earle – brow pencil (dark)

image

My favourite brow pencil is this one by Liz Earle…makes my brows look great and is full of lovely ingredients like avocado oil…love!
ยฃ11 from http://www.lizearle.com

Beauty blender

image

My sister got me this from home bargains for about a ยฃ1!….this works amazingly at blending in foundation and concealer… Such a bargain considering most beauty blenders I’ve seen are between ยฃ10-15! ๐Ÿ™‚

Clarins ‘blue’ perfume

image

My mum loves this perfume and Ive always loved how it smelt on her so she gave me a bottle that had about a quater left (she had another full bottle ready).
I really love the smell of this, really clean & fresh smelling not at all sweet or fruity (isn’t it always hard to describe perfume?) It’s the type of scent that suits anyone and is even quite unisex in my opinion ๐Ÿ™‚
Can be bought at Debenhams and Boots for ยฃ32 (100ml).

Thanks for reading guys!

Love Nina xoxo ( อกยฐ อœส– อกยฐ)

MUA ยฃ1 nail polishes -Review

Hi Dolls!

Today I’m reviewing 3 MUA nail polishes I got in my recent superdrug haul ๐Ÿ™‚

The polishes are just a ยฃ1 each and come in a big selection of different colours, however they are quite small but the colours are all so gorgeous so I thought I would try some out! ๐Ÿ˜‰

So….I bought 3 pastel shades ‘Truffle Cream’ which is a soft brown, ‘Pistachio Ice cream’ which is a soft mint shade and ‘Ameretto Crush’ which is a lovely muted rose colour…

I wore the ‘Ameretto crush’ for around 3 days and in that time I repainted a few times  (even with a top coat)  it took 2 coats to properly cover my nails however the colour is surprisingly pigmented ๐Ÿ™‚

The packaging reminds me alot of ‘Essie’ nail polishes!

Although I found the formula to chip alot I think for just ยฃ1 each with such a wide range of colours I would probably buy more of these because alot of the time I prefer wearing nail polish for a day at a time instead of several days wear…

Thanks for reading and have a great week! ๐Ÿ™‚
