MUA £1 nail polishes -Review

Hi Dolls!

Today I’m reviewing 3 MUA nail polishes I got in my recent superdrug haul 🙂

The polishes are just a £1 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! 😉

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 🙂

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

Although I found the formula to chip alot I think for just £1 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! 🙂

UK/Korean Blog beauty swap! (Thanks AJ!)

Hi Dolls!

Yesterday I received my second ‘beauty swap’ package (check out my other post for my haul from the USA) from fellow beauty blogger ( https://cuteprettybeauty.wordpress.com/ ) the lovely AJ (check out her blog she often reviews really cool & interesting beauty items!) who sent me a whole bunch of gorgeous cute Korean beauty products (and candy!) :-)…
I admit I was not expecting such an Amazing box crammed full of these amazing things (I was nearly hyperventilating! Haha) as I’ve always had a fascination with anything beauty from places like Korea & Japan…..these things just aren’t sold in the west :-/

I didn’t really have a preference about what I wanted AJ to get me infact neither did AJ so we got each other a random mix 😀
I had seen on her blog she often talked about ‘Etude house’ and ‘Tonymoly’ and I noticed quite alot are from either of those places 🙂

Thanks again AJ!!!  (My sister Louise says ‘Thankyou!’ Aswell) 🙂

The packaging! Gorgeous! The banana hand cream smells like those candy bananas I had as a kid! I don’t want to open any of it, just look at it! 😀

UK/USA beauty swap! (Thanks Brittany!)

Hi Guy’s!

A few weeks ago I arranged a blog beauty swap with 2 lovely ladies and I’ve literally just received my first swap from Brittany ( http://bonjour-brittany.com/ ) from the USA…:D  I asked her to see if she could get me any Hard candy, Wet n wild, Covergirl, milani and possibly an EOS lipbalm, she did!!! I’m so excited to play with them all! Haha!! 🙂

For year’s I’ve seen American bloggers and vloggers using wet n wild eye shadows and Hard candy baked blushers and now I have my own! 🙂

Makeup Revolution lipsticks – review!

Hi Dolls!

How’s you’re weekend?

Today I show you 4 of the makeup revolution lipsticks I got in my recent haul post 🙂

I wanted to try out some fun colours similar to the Lime crime or OCC lip colours ( without the price tag! ) so when I saw these while browsing the Superdrug site I thought ‘why not’.

image

image

Felony

image

Ok first of all I haven’t done no lip swatches as I’m not feeling great today so i’m writing this in bed (I started a juice detox yesterday).

‘Felony’ is one of those lipsticks I would never wear in public although if you’re a similar styled person to ‘Queen of blending’ from YouTube or ‘Amy’ from sugarpill cosmetics then you’ll love this…however it’s not greatly pigmented but if you use a lip primer and take your time you can get the style and colour you want, not bad for £1!

Depraved

image

This is my favourite of the 4! Really pigmented and bright, kinda reminds me of the colour Kylie Jenner wears! 🙂

Crime

image

Crime is a really vivid bright fuchsia pink & is just as pigmented as depraved. It’s a really beautiful colour and would look great on any skin tone 🙂

Scandalous Immoral

image

Ok, think Katy Perry….yep this is a scary colour to wear on everyday except Halloween but who cares! You can wear what you want 🙂 again same with felony it’s not as pigmented as the other two so use a lip primer and you’ll get that Katy perry look 😉

Too Faced ‘Primed & Poreless’ Primer – review!

Hi Dolls!

How was your weekend? 🙂

In my sister’s recent Too Faced haul post she bought their ‘primed & poreless’ face primer,  unfortunately (fortunately for moi!) it didn’t agree with her so she gave it to Me! Thanks Louise! 🙂 so..here’s my review….

image

image

First of all I just love Too faced especially their baby pink vintage styled packaging, kinda reminds me of ‘old Hollywood’ like the type of packaging that would be seen on Marilyn Monroe’s or Greta Garbo’s dressing table 🙂

image

image

The product kind of looks like a foundation when it comes out the tube but I assure you as you rub it into the skin it becomes invisible leaving the skin clear, soft with pores shrinked.

I liked the way my skin looks with it, even before applying make-up,  sort of ‘airbrushed’…my skin only abit better 🙂

My make-up (powder foundation) went smoothly on top but I didn’t notice anything magnificent, my other primers that I use work just as good in my eyes however if your main problem is enlarged pores then I would defiantly recommend this one. 🙂

Paraben and Mineral oil free it contains ingredients such as Vitamin A & C, Mulberry extracts, Retinol & Alba bark.

Defiantly a primer worth trying! 🙂

Liz Earle – Nail polish review

Hi Dolls!

Today I bring you a review of Liz Earle’s nail polish in 02 ‘Quicksand’.

image

image

I bought this gorgeous shade of soft sand/beige back in February at their beautiful Leeds store.

As many of you know both myself and my sister Louise LOVE anything Liz Earle! I mainly love their Skincare products and my sister the cosmetics but we just love everything! 😀

A few years ago Liz Earle launched their cosmetic line and I didn’t try any of their nail polish at first but while in their store in February I couldn’t resist especially at all the rave reviews I read and the price, only £8.50 for a premium good quality nail polish 🙂

image

They have 12 gorgeous colours and I plan to get more during the summer but ‘Quicksand’ is such a lovely neutral shade that I wanted to try it first:)

The polish itself painted on beautifully with a nice, long brush and non-drip formula. To get the most out of the colour I used a topcoat (OPI). I had about 6 days wear before I noticed any chipping which I think is pretty good as I normally get around 2-3 days from my OPI or Barry M polishes so I was very impressed 🙂
