Barry M Nail Polish Collection

So today i am showing you all of my Barry M nail polishes, i have quite a few that i have collected over a few years. Most of them are from clothes show live and a set i got one Christmas, believe it or not i have only brought three of these from boots or superdrug.

The Brights

Shocking Pink - This is a lovely pinky purpley colour with a little bit of shimmer in it, its very pigmented and only needs two coats to get an opaque colour.

Coral - This is a really bight coral colour which looks different in different lights, in some lights it can look more pink or orange or red, its a little weird but its a lovely colour for summer. Its has no shimmer in it. Its very pigmented and only needs two coats.

Tangerine - This is the only orange nail polish in my whole nail polish collection because i hate the colour and the only time i use this nail polish is Halloween. This polish isn't as pigmented as the others it needs about three to four coats to get it opaque, its very shimmery and it is a nice orange if you like the colour.

Berry ice-cream - This is a really lovely lilac colour with no shimmer and is nicely pigmented, it needs about 2 coats to make it opaque. I haven't actually used this one much as i have a lilac polish which i prefer from models own.

Mint green - This is more on the side of light green than mint green but its still really lovely, its very pigmented and has no shimmer in it. This colour is perfect to wear in spring.

The Darks

Navy - This is one of my favorite polish's to wear in Autumn Winter as its really dark. Its a lovely navy colour with shimmer in it, its very pigmented and look lovely on the nails, but it can make your hands look pale :(.

Raspberry - This is the first ever Barry M nail polish i got and i brought it because Beauty Crush had it and i thought it was really lovely and i wanted to buy it so i did. This is a lovely red wine raspberry colour with no shimmer in it, like all of the others it is very pigmented and only needs two coats.

Mushroom - This is a very strange colour, its brown with a hint of gray to it. I don't really use it on its own but its great for nail art, again its very pigmented and has no shimmer.

Teal - This is a lovely light blue colour which is very shimmery but isn't that pigmented it needs about 3-4 coats.

Fuchsia - This is very similar to shocking pink apart from this has no shimmer and is a little lighter, its very pigmented and looks great on the nails.

Effects and Limited Edition 

Gelly hi-shine, Guava - This is the only gelly hi-shine polish i own as i think they are quite expensive (im a cheap skate) so i have only brought the one, but i do love this colour very much and im glad i brought it, its very pigmented and actually only really needs one coat but i do two so it lasts a bit longer.

Textured glitter, princessWhen i saw this is new i had to have it its such a lovely colour its a pink based glitter with bits of gold glitter in it, and for a glitter its very pigmented and only needs around two coats to get a full opaqueness, this is a beautiful colour and im so glad i brought it. 

Foil effects, lilac foil - This is a really lovely lilac colour with a hint of gray and it has a lovely foil finish.

Base, top coat and nail hardener - This a really good base and top coat as they are both in one and it is very cheap.

Retro collection

Retro 1 pink - This is very similar to shocking pink and fuchsia but in different ways they are different, this has shimmer and is very pigmented.

Hologram hexograms - This a glitter top coat which needs about 2-3 coats to have glitter all over the nail.

Thank you very much for reading and do tell me what your favorite colour is.

Small Beauty Haul

Hello everyone so yes i have another haul for you, i feel like i have been doing loads of these but oh well, i now you all like them.

Avon Advance Techniques Moroccan Argan oil, lightweight gloss spray, around £2.50
My mom said i could pick a few things from the Avon book so of course i couldn't say no so i chose this and another product. Now i actually got this product wrong i thought it was a treatment spray you spray in your hair when its damp, but when i got it i read it properly and released its actually a shine spray you use on dry hair so that's annoying. I haven't used this yet so i don't know if its any good.

Garnier intensive 7 days soothing lotion, superdrug £2.99
This is my favorite body lotion because its smells nice and its okay for me to use on my very sensitive legs.

Avon skin so soft dry oil body spray, around £2.50
So this is the other product i chose from Avon. When i was looking through the book this caught my attention because its something different. I have used it ounce and it was okay it smelt nice and it felt nice on the skin, but i need to use it a few more times before i can give you my full opinion on it.

Barry M nail polish in Princess, superdrug, £3.99 3 for 2 offer.
I really wanted some new nail polish so of course i went straight to the Barry M stand. This one caught my eye straight away because it is so beautiful, its a pink based glitter with bits if gold glitter in it. I have already used it and i loved it so much and it actually wasn't to bad to get off.

Rimmel match perfection foundation in 010 light porcelain, superdrug £6.99 3 for 3 offer.
This is the main thing i went in to the shop for, as i have this in the shade 100 and its to dark so i thought i would pick up the lightest colour, but its actually to light so i have to mix the two shades together to get the perfect shade. This is my favorite foundation and if you guys haven't tried it you really should.

Barry M nail polish in Guava, superdrug, £3.99 3 for 2 offer.
Surprisingly i don't actually own any of these gelly hi shine polish's :o, but i had seen this one loads of times and i really liked it so i thought i would pick it up, i haven't actually used it yet but im really excited to.

Waxxxpress ultra violet hot wax (free) (there website )
Two lovely ladies from this brand come to my college to talk to us about all of the products they sell, and they showed us a few waxing demos and told us about there experience in the beauty industry. This brand is meant to be one of the best waxing brands in well as they said the whole world, so of course i had to take advantage of the free pot of wax i could get, they were using this one when they came and it looked really nice and as it was shimmery purple and smelt really nice.

Epilcare depilatory ready to use wax strips for face and bikini, bodycare around £1
I was really annoyed because i had all of these little blond hairs in between my brows and as i don't do waxing at college anymore i thought i would buy these. I used them and i must say for the price they actually do a really good job.

October Empties 2013

E45 moisturising lotion
After i shave my legs they are very sensitive, so i cant use any fancy body cream or butter on my legs other wise they would sting like crazy, so the only moisturisers i can use on my legs are Garnier intensive 7 day body lotion in sensitive and this. I must admit its not the most moisturising product in the world but it dose the job, it is fragrance free, sinks in to the skin really fast and is none greasy. This is really nice and i would buy it again.

Lady Gaga fame black fluid shower gel
I got this in a gift set with the perfume last Christmas and i thought it smelt really nice but i just forgot about it, but recently i was trying to use up some of my products so i deiced to take this out of my draw and put it in the shower. The packaging is annoying because it is so hard, so you cant really get the last bit out, and for the last few weeks of using it i had to keep it upside down. But it smells really nice and i like that its black, some think you don't often see. The scent didn't really last long on my skin though but im not to bothered about that. I don't think you can buy this individually but i you could i probably wouldn't buy it.

Pretty perfect nail drying spray
This is a product i use every time i paint my nails so i go though it very fast, but its only 99p so its not like im wasting my money. I think it really dose work, my nails are touch dry after using this which is great, but its not totally dry so they can still smudge. I you haven't tried one of these you have to.

Lush Eau Roma water toner water
I have been using this since around June time every single day and i only just finished it this week so that shows that this lasts a very long time and it definitely worth the £7-8 price. This is my all time favorite toner it smells really nice and helps to hydrate my skin. Its great for sensitive and dry skin as the ingredients are very gentle and hydrating. I am 100% going to buy another one of these.

Garnier miracle skin perfecter BB cream
I have had this for years so i thought it was about time i got rid of it, its also to dark for me and the packaging has slightly broken. When i was at school i used this everyday as my base and at the time i really liked it, its very moisturising and is light coverage. I was okay for me then but now i like medium to full coverage. I wont buy this again.

Halloween NOTD - Eye Balls

Happy Halloweeeeen, so its Halloween and as im not doing any think to well, celebrate Halloween i thought i would do some cool nail art. So after about 10 minutes of searching for Halloween nail art on Google i decided to do eye ball nails because i thought it looked really cool.

I started off by painting my nails all white with Rimmels white nail polish in London Clouds, then i took my dotting tool and used the greeny blue nail polish (no name, no brand) and dotted a medium sized dot in the middle of my nail, this is the colour of the eye ball so you can use any colour you like, still using the dotting tool i took Models own nail polish in Black Magic and dotted a smaller dot in the middle of the green dot to make the pupil, then i used a small angled nail art brush and used 17 nail polish in knockout red to create the veins on the eye. So as you can tell this is really easy to do and it looks really good.

Seventeen Cosmetics Makeup Review

So today i have another cheap drugstore brand review for you and today's brand is seventeen. Seventeen can only be found in boots and is fairly cheap. Since i have brought any think from the brand they have had a little bit of a revamp, they used to be called 17 and now they have changed it to Seventeen, so only a small change, but some of my products might look a little bit different to the products in store.

Pencil eyeliners - The top one is black and the bottom one is purple. Both of these are very pigmented and creamy, they are great for the lash line but not so great for the waterline. I actually don't use these much any more, but i remember them been very nice pencils and i think they are only like £2.99 which is great.

Glitter liquid liners - I got these in a Christmas set years ago and i have never really used them, but for glitter liners they are actually very pigmented and stay on for a long time. I think there was some others in the set as well but i think i got rid of them.

Eye shadow
The eye shadows are all very pigmented but can be a bit powdery. I got all of these ages ago so i don't think they are available any more apart from maybe the single eye shadows. I don't really use this much anymore but i can tell you they are very nice but since the brand has been revamped they might be a bit better.

Nail polish 
The nail polish has got to be my favorite thing that seventeen do, they are very pigmented and the brush is really nice. The three on the top are from a Christmas set but the other four you can get in boots. I have two fast finish polishes one is a red which is called knock out red and a bluey green duo-crome in the shade sulk.
I also have two lasting fix polishes, a purple one called Chateaux and a shimmery coral colour called Tropical Island. I really like these nail polishes and at only £2,99 they are a bargain.

Seventeen also do a lot of other products like blushers, foundations, concealers, mascaras and a lot more which are all meant to be very good. I would say that this brand would be good for any teenagers or any one who is just starting out in makeup and want to try some decent stuff.

Storage Haul - T K Maxx, eBay + more

This is just a small haul of some of the things i have brought for my bed room recently, there's not much but i thought you would like to see.

Multi-function folding box organiser, eBay £1.49 (Link to similar
I was trying to make to changes on my makeup desk so when i saw this i thought it looked quite cool and thought it would be good so i brought it. It was only around £1.49 so i couldn't say no. Its a purple folding box with little pockets on the front, you can take the bottom out and the sides fold together. When i got it i looked at it and i thought oh that's really ugly, the quality is really bad and i just haven't used it, but its not like i broke the bank buying it.

Acrylic makeup storage, TKmaxx £5.99
I had wanted some think like this for a very long time but they were always to expensive or not quite how i wanted it. This one is the perfect size and it looks really nice on my desk with all the things in it (picture with it full). I'm not sure if they will have this in store any more as i brought it a while ago but im sure other places sell some thing similar.

Mirrored butterfly candle holder, Wilkinsons £2 (sale)
Ignore the fact that you can see my reflection in it lol.
When i was trying to redecorate my makeup desk i wanted some thing new to put my face makeup brushes in, so when i saw this for only £2 i new i had to have it, mainly because it was really pretty but also as it has butterfly's on it, so it kind of goes with the theme of my bedroom.

Purple butterfly candle holder, poundland £1
Sorry for the really bad picture :(.
After i brought the candle holder from wilkos i saw this in poundland and i thought they would go really nice together, and they do but i use this for actual candles, and once there is a candle in it, it looks really nice they butterfly's light up and when you turn all the lights of there butterfly's on the walls.

Beauty Would you Rather tag.

1. Would you rather lose all your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks and lip glosses or all of your pallets and eye shadows ?
Defiantly i would lose all of my pallets and eye shadows, only because i couldn't live with out mascara and eyeliner. I do love my powder eye shadows but i could make do with cream eye shadows and pencil eye shadows.

2. Would you rather chop off all of your hair or never have it cut again ?
Never have it cut again, i just could not have short hair i now i will hate it, and my hair is in pretty good condition so my ends aren't to bad so my hair wont look really dead and lifeless.

3. Would you rather have a coral or a pink cheek ?
A pink cheek, i prefer pink blush to coral as i think it looks better on me.

4. If you had £1000 to spend. would you rather spend it on clothes or makeup ?
I do love clothes but i think im going to have to say beauty, i am a beauty addict and im a beauty therapist so i could get some really cool stuff.

5.  Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner or eyeliner as lipstick ?
Well neither really but it would depend on the colour, but i think i will choose lipstick as eyeliner, only because you could use a dark purple colour on your lash line and it wouldn't look as bad as black lips.

6. Would you rather only shop in Sephora or MAC ?
Well we don't have Sephora in England but if we did i would choose Sephora only because it has a lot more brands and more choice.

7. Would you rather only use one eye shadow or one lip colour for the rest of your life ?
One eye shadow, only because one lip colour will get really boring and and one eye shadow wont look too bad and you could even make it darker or smoker with some eyeliner.

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter ?
Hmm well our English summers aren't the best, so probably winter clothes in summer.

9. Would you rather wear dark or bright nail polish all year round ?
Bright nail polish, every one loves a good bright nail polish.

10. Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or eye product ?
Lip product, only because there are so many other colours out there and in my collection. And good eye products are hard to find.

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a pony tail or a messy bun ?
A messy bun because they look different every time and pony tails are kind of boring.

12. Would you rather never use nail polish or lip gloss again ?
Lip gloss of course, i could not live with out nail polish my hands would look so boring.

13. Would you rather have no eyebrows or fill them in with a sharpie everyday ?
Oh my, well no eyebrows will look stupid but so would really dark eyebrows unless there is a light brown sharpie, ermm i think fill them in with a sharpie.

14. Would you rather live with out makeup or nail polish?
I could not live with out makeup so 100% nail poilsh.

I did one of these posts around a year ago (here) so i thought i would do an updated version as my old one got very good views so you must of enjoyed it.
My bag in from H&M which i got last Christmas so i doubt they sell it any more. It is the perfect size it carry's every think i need it to and it is very sturdy.

I have a Radly purse which i use to put any money i need in, i don't take my big purse because i will end up spending all my money on rubbish lol. I have my pass and my fob watch which comes in very handy when i am doing treatments. A body spray just to freshen up and in the background that purple case with the white spots on it is my pencil case.
I have an umbrella because you never now when its going to rain. My note pad, which is actually really cool it has lined paper, squared paper and plain paper and it was only like £1.50p from wilkos.

Haul: Superdrug, Boots, Lush and eBay

Lush Creamy Candy Bubble Bar £2.50 
I really wanted some new things from lush as i haven't actually tried that many products from them. I decided to buy a bubble bar as at home we don't really have any nice bath products. I thought this smelt really nice and looked really pretty so i decided to get it, and it was a really good price at £2.50 as most of lush's stuff is normally quite expensive.

Lush Bubble Gum Lip Scrub £5.50
I used to make my own lip scrubs but i always see people going on about how good these are so i decided to pick one up. I couldn't choose between this one and the mint one but i choose the bubblegum one in the end because i really like the sweet smell, i have used it a few times and its really nice but its very different to the ones i used to make.

Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipsticks in Funtime fuchsia and Notting hill nude eBay £2.98 each
(Pictured in college at the top, i had to take the big pic down as it was blurry)
I think these have recently been reformulated so at the moment they are all over eBay for like £2-3. I have heard some people say that notting hill nude is good for pale people so of course i had to pick it up, i have used it a few times and it actually is very nice. Essie button loves the shade Funtime fuchsia and it looked really nice on the blog post she did about it so i decided to get it, i have used it a few times and its lovely i was expecting it to be a bit darker but it still lovey and its very pigmented.

Professional Cosmetics Stipple makeup brush, eBay £1.99 
I have always wanted to try some more versions of the real technique brushes but they are kind of expensive, so the other day when i was looking at the brushes on eBay i saw these and i thought i would order a few, and i must say they are lovely, they are very soft and good quality, they are from Hong Kong so they do take a while to get here but believe me they are worth it.

Nivea daily essentials rich moisturising day cream, Superdrug £3.00
This is my every day moisturiser and i love it so much, its great if u have dry skin as it is so moisturising, it literally saved my skin last winter. Its only cheap and it is a staple for me, if you have dry skin you should give it ago.

Clean and Clear deep action cream wash, superdrug £1.99
I recently started micro-dermabrasion at college so i had to stop using my exfoliating products so i decided to pick up a new face wash. I really like clean and clear products so i thought i would give this ago i haven't actually started using this yet as i have been using the other one i brought.

Clearasil Daily clear vitamins and extracts wash and mask, boots £2.99
When i was in boots i saw that these clearasil products were on offer so i decided to pick some up, i have been using this every day and i have been really loving it. After i have taken my makeup off i get in the shower and wash my face with this. It makes my face feel nice and clean and i think it might of helped clear up my spots a little. I really like that it is also a mask so I'm almost getting more for my money.

Clearasil daily clear superfruits refreshing pads, boots £1.99
When i saw these i was very intrigued so i picked them up and decided to give them ago. When reading it i didn't see the part were it said they are exfoliating so that's annoying. But they are still nice, they smell amazing just like apples but very strong. I have used them on my nose when it was feeling a bit ruff and they did a brilliant job.

September Empties 2013

Morrisons Papaya and Mango Shower Scrub
I brought this ages ago and only recently started using it. It is morrisons own so it was really cheap i think it was around £1-2. It smells amazing one of the best things i have ever smelt, im not sure if it actually smells like papaya and mango but it does smell amazing and very fruity, and the smell stays on your skin for a few hours which is nice. For a scrub its not very invigorating, the particles in it are very small and there's is not many of them. I don't think i will repurchase this.

Batiste dry shampoo
This is a product i have talked about many many times so i don't want to bore you. I'm sure you have all used this before and know how good it is. I spray it on second day hair when its looks a bit greasy and my hair looks brand new, it does come out white but i can deal with that, i think i might try the one for brown hair. I will always repurchase this.

TRESemme Ultimate Hold Touchable finish Hair spray
I really love this hair spray but it makes me sneeze which is weird, any way i really like it because it keeps my hair in place all day and it doesn't make it crispy. I might buy the full size of this but im not sure as it does make me sneeze which is a bit odd.

Amargan Hair oil
I brought this at a beauty show that i went to with my college in May. The man working at the stand tried a bit of it on my hair and after it felt amazing so i decided to buy a set of three different products. This is the only one from the pack i have used and that is because i love it so much. It makes my hair feel so amazing, i put about three pumps in to my hand and then spread it in to the ends of my hair when its wet, then when i wake up in the morning my hair feels so soft and looks amazing, i really want the full size but i think its like £20 so that wont be happening.

Carex Sensitive Hand gel
Everyone needs hand gel and this is the one i always buy, its around £1-2 and you can get it any were. I use this before i do my makeup and before i take my makeup off. It cleans my hands very well and i use it all the time. I have already brought another bottle.

Clinique Even better Clinical Dark spot Corrector
My aunt gave me two samples of this a few weeks ago and i started using it and i really liked it . Its a peachy colored serum type product that i applied every night. Im not really sure if i noticed a difference but it was nice to use, i just looked at the website and the full size is like £80 which is ridiculous so i wont be buying that.

Estee Lauder Take it Away Total Makeup Remover 
My mom gave this to me ages ago from one of those big sets that they do at Christmas because she wasn't going to use it. I used it a few times but i didn't really now how to use it so i just left it. But a few months ago i was searching through my collection and i found it so i thought i would give it another try and i really liked it, you can tell i did as i chopped the top off. I message this in to my face then take a damp Kleenex facial cloth and take my makeup off. It is fragranced but it didn't brake me out in spots or any think. I think the full size is like £20 so i wont be buying that, but i do really like this product.

Nivea Soft Refreshingly soft Moisturising cream
Another product that i talk about all the time is this and that is because i love it so much. This is manly a hand cream but i use it on my face and feet, it is so moisturising and makes my skin feel really soft. I will always buy this.

Lavera Cleansing Milk
I was sent this a while ago and i really loved it but then i stopped using it, so when i was trying to use up some products the other month i started using this again and i didn't love it as much but it is nice. Its good because you can use it to take off eye makeup as well as face makeup. Its a yellow colour and it smells a bit like sun cream which is strange. I wont be buying it but it was nice to have.

Top 5 Makeup Products Under £5

Hello everyone so today i am going to be showing you my top 5 makeup products under £5 i hope you enjoy.

Collection Lock and Hold lip gloss in Body Pop
This is such a lovely lip gloss, its not sticky at all and it is a beautiful colour. Its a light baby pink colour with blue under tones and it has no shimmer in it. It looks really nice over a lot of lipsticks and even by its self. For £2.99 these lip glosses are lovely, i think there is five other shades and i really need to pick them up.

Collection Work the Colour eye shadow pencil in Hot Chocolate
You guys should now by now how much i love these bad boys especially this colour. I have three of the six shades and i must say they are lovely, they are very pigmented and creamy and last a very long time. They are nice all over the lid but they can go a little patchy, but after a few coats and some eye shadow over the top they look fine. For £3.19 they are a bargain and they are a good dupe for the NYX jumbo eye pencils, if you haven't already tried these you have to. I have done a full review of these here

MUA single eye shadows
I have a few of these and they are all lovely especially this brown one in pearl shade 11. They have two different types pearl which are shimmery and matte which are obviously matte, i have only tried the pearl ones so i cant tell you any think about the matte ones. They are very pigmented and very creamy, they can be a little powdery but i can live with that. For £1 these are amazing and if you haven't tried any you have to.

MUA Undress your skin Shimmer Highlighter
Highlighters are a product that the drugstore dosent really have many of, so when i saw this come out a few months ago i had to pick it up and lets just say im glad i did. The packaging has broken which is very annoying but i can live with it. It is 100% a highlighter for pale skin so if you have darker skin i would stay away from this. It is a pink highlighter with a hint of blue shimmer in it (so its a blue toned pink). Its very pigmented and looks lovely on the cheeks. As you can see they product its self looks very expensive as it has a wave texture to it (like the MAC ones) and it is only £3. If you have pale skin you should get this.

Maybelline colour tattoo
I'm sure almost everyone has one of these, they are such a lovely product. They are very creamy and go on to the lid like a dream. They last a very long time especially when your wearing a primer and eye shadow over the top. This colour is pink gold and its actually the only colour tattoo i have and now i have tried it i want more. For £4.99 they are a bargain and eBay do a few of them for even cheaper (which is were i got mine). If you haven't tried these were have you been.

Whats your favorite product under £5 ??

Rimmel Nail Polish Collection

Hello everyone so in today's post i am going to be sharing my Rimmel nail polish collection with you. My nail polish collection is rather big so i have decided to do a few of these posts to show you all of my nail polishes.

60 Seconds (L-R)

Princess pink- Princess pink is a very light baby pink colour with no shimmer in it, its very sheer so it needs about 3-4 coats. It looks very natural and would be good if you go to school and your not aloud to wear any polish as you can barley tell your wearing it. It would also be very nice to use when doing a french manicure.

Twinkle- Twinkle is a lovely very light lilac colour with silver shimmer and glitter in it, to get a nice opaque colour it needs about 2 coats. As it has glitter in it, it lasts a long on the nails but it is a night mare to get off. This is actually my second bottle of this and i have never brought a nail polish twice so you can tell i like it.

Instyle Coral- Instyle coral is a very true orange coral colour that has no shimmer in it, it is very opaque you only need about two coats to get a lovely finish.

Style Hunter- Style hunter is a very different colour i have never seen any think else like it, its kind of a dark beige brown colour with purple shimmer in it. I don't wear it to often but i do think it is a really nice autumn colour.

I <3 Lasting finish (L-R)

London Clouds- London clouds is a true white colour, it has no shimmer and for a white its actually quite pigmented you only need about 2-3 coats to get a nice opaque colour.

Loafer Love For You- This is a lovely cobalt blue colour with no shimmer in it, it is very pigmented you only need about 2 coats, this is one of my newest polishes and i really like it i have no other colours like it.

Wine Not- Wine not is a lovely raspberry redy pink colour with no shimmer,and again it only needs about 2-3 coats to make it nice and opaque. It is a perfect colour for autumn winter, i do love the colour but it just makes my hands look sooooo pale so i don't wear it often.

Double Espresso- I actually got this one from pound land so that was a bargain, this is a brown colour with shimmer in it and it also has some kind of purple undertone to it which is kind of odd but it actually looks okay, i dont wear this one to much as im not really that much of a fan of it.

Lycra Pro and Effects (L-F)

Oyster Pink- Oyster pink is a really lovely light pink colour with shimmer in it, its very sheer you need about 4 maybe 5 coats to make it opaque. This would be really nice for school or maybe for a french manicure.

Night Flight-  Even though this looks almost black in the pictures its actually a very dark purple colour. I don't actually like this colour but its okay. I actually really like the brush on these Lycra pro ones because they are so big, also i think the Lycra pro range might not be sold any more but im not sure.

Precious stone, Ruby Crush- This is the perfect Christmas polish. It has big silver bits of glitter and smaller bits of red glitter, for a glitter polish its actually very opaque it says on the bottle it is a high coverage glitter nail polish and it definitely is, the swatch is only two coats. I'm not sure if they sell these any more but i don't know.

Metal Rush, Pearly Queen- This is a beautiful purple colour with green duo chrome through it. This is very sheer so i like to put a polish under neath it. But i would say this is one of my favorite nail polishes.

Top coats

Lycra Pro Matte finish top coat- I brought this ages ago and i actually haven't used it on my nails, but i have used it on a nail wheel so i can tell you that this dose work and it is very good, and as matte nails are in this autumn winter i might start using it.

5 in 1 Nail treat, Base and top coat Total care Action- I use this every time i paint my nails and it is very good, really just a basic base and top coat.

Collection Cosmetics Review

Hello everyone so this is another post reviewing some products from cheap drugstore brands, today i am reviewing the very well known Collection, there products are very cheap i don't think there is any think over £10 (i maybe wrong).

Eye Pencil products 

Work the Colour Eye Shadow pencils (review)
These are pretty new to the brand and i must say they are very good, very creamy and very bendable. They are water proof so the stay in the waterline all day. They can be a little patchy if you put them all over the lid but once u you have put a few layers on and you have an eye shadow over the top they are lovely. I have reviewed these if you would like to know more.

Intense colour super soft kohl 
I used to use this all of the time, but then i found gel liner and then i found the brown work the colour eye shadow pencil. But this is very creamy and very pigmented, it goes on very smoothly but it does smudge if you put it in the water line. This very lovely and if you are looking for a good eyeliner i 100% recommend this.

Eye shadow, mascara and concealer

Skyscraper mascara
(i think it has a new name). I actually got this from poundland a while ago because i thought was a bargain and i thought i would just give it ago, i used to use it lot but i actually haven't used it in a while now. I don't think its the best mascara in the world but its okay, i would say its more of a lengthening mascara than a volumising one. It has an interesting brush, its plastic and it has shorter bristles on one side then on the other side they are longer (picture).

Colour intense trio eye shadow pallet
I got a pack of two of these from poundlad ages ago and i thought they were really good so i decided to get another which was from They are very pigmented but they are very powdery. They all have lovely colours and i really enjoy using them. The packaging is very cheap looking but i can get over that. I don't think they sell these in store any more.

Lasting perfection concealer
This is probably collections most famous product, i bet almost every beauty blogger/vlogger has this or has tried it. It gets so much hype online, and i must say i do go along with the hype. It a very high coverage concealer but can go a bit cakey. I would say its best to put this on spots and redness and not under your eyes as it can crease and go very cakey there.

Lip products

Lock and Hold Lip gloss
I love this lip gloss, its a beautiful blue toned barbie pink colour that is very pigmented and very glossy, its not sticky at all which is a bonus. They only have four colours of this lip gloss and the other ones aren't that nice, i would say this and the nude one are the only nice colours, im just not drawn to the other ones.

Cream Puff moisturising lip cream
The first thing i must say about this is that it is not at all moisturisng, its very creamy as soon as you put it on, but by the time it has dried, your lips feel so dry and almost hard. There not that long lasting i would say around 2-3 hours. Again like the lip gloss these only come in four shades and these two are the brightest the other two are nude colours.

Pure Gloss lip gloss
I brought this years ago and i think they have repackaged and reformulated them. This is a pink colour with shimmer and a bit of glitter in it. I actually don't really use this so i cant really tell you any more about it.

Nail polish

Hot looks fast dry nail polish
These are only like £1.99 and that's really good for these as they are very good. They have a very good size brush you can do your whole nail in about two swipes and your little finger in one. I have these two really lovely colours and i think i might have to get a few more ( they have changed the packaging)

Fashion and Beauty Haul / Superdrug, Primark and more

Rimmel i <3 Lasting Finish Nail Polish in 405 Loafer Love for You, Superdrug £1.99 (offer)
I really wanted a new nail polish so when i saw the Rimmel ones on offer i thought i would have a look, this colour caught my eye i don't have one like it and i think its really lovely. Its very pigmented and goes on the nails like a dream

MUA Colour Blast eye Shadow Tint in Tint-A Girl Like Me, Superdrug £3
I am really loving these eyes shadow pencils recently, so when i saw MUA had brought some out of course i had to check them out. All the colours are very lovely and it took me a while to choose one, but in the end i picked up this one. Its a lovely goldy bronzy colour, its not the most pigmented or creamy but its still really lovely, i think the darker colours maybe better.

Rimmel Wake Me up Instant Radiance Shimmer touch in 002 Radiant Rose, poundland £1
When i saw this in poundland i was shocked and i was like this is mine and i ran away (slight over exaggeration) i did look to see if there was any more but this was the last one left so i snapped it up. I have used it a few times and i really like it, its a lovely dusky pink colour with a lot of shimmer in it. It looks really lovely on the cheeks and for £1 it was definitely worth it.

MUA One direction Kiss you Lipstick in Rock Me, Superdrug £3 
Lots of people have been saying how good these are so i thought i would pick one up and give it ago. I have used it a lot and i really love it, its a lovely pinky purply colour, that is kind of matte but has very fine shimmer in it, it also lasts a long time on the lips. I would definitely recommend these to you guys.

Quick fix facials Calming clay Mask for red and Sensitive skin, Boots around £3 on offer
When i saw these face masks in boots i was very intrigued i had never seen them before nor have i seen anyone talk about them online. So i thought i would pick one up and give it ago. I have used it once and it was okay i didn't see a massive difference in my skin but it did make it feel nice and soft. You don't need much just a thin layer because other wise it will make your face feel a bit tingly. These are lovely and i recommend you give them ago.

Maybelline 24hr colour tattoo in pink gold, eBay £3.84
I saw some one make a blog post on bargain beauty buys from eBay and this was one so i thought i would order it. I actually don't own a colour tattoo so when i saw this was slightly cheaper than boots and superdrug i thought i would try it and i must say it is very nice, its very creamy and lasts along time. I really like this and i want to try some others

River Island molly jeggings £35
I had to fold them in half so i could get them in shot obviously they are full length. I love these jeans they are so comfy and very soft, i also like that they are mid rise so they flatten out my stomach a little. I already have a pair in black and i really wanted a light blue colour. 

Black quilted top with a silver chain on the pocket, Primark £6
When i saw this i new i had to have as it was so lovely its very soft and it will be nice and warm for winter, it was only £6 and i think that is a steal for such a lovely top.
I also brought another top from primark but i deleted the picture :( it is a lovely raglan top with floral sleeves and a dark gray body for only £4.
I also got a pack of black socks for £2.50, some of those frilly socks that everyone has been buying and a pack of above the knuckle rings for £1.50.
