I am not usually much of a beauty buff. Yes I use make up and have my favourites and occasionally squeal over new nail varnishes, however I have nothing on my favourite beauty bloggers. This payday though I made a decision to invest more into my beauty routine than spending lots on new clothes.
Models Own Nail Varnish in 'Snowflakes' and 'Magenta Divine'
I had been desperate to try out Models Own nail varnishes for a very long time however have never invested in them, or their hype. And to be honest I am gutted I did. While I did get these on Buy One Get One Half Price, I still feel mugged off. Neither of these dried on my nails properly ('Magenta Divine' being the worse of the two for this). I don't mean little scratches either, the pink one wiped clean off my nails an hour after application just as it would if they were still wet. 'Snowflakes' held up better but was still terrible for its price and the hype around Models Own.
Topshop Cheek Duo in 'Desert Sun'
Usually I just opt for a rosy red/pink blusher and had bronzer down for just the tangoed club, however after purchasing this Topshop blusher and bronzer duo I can see I was wrong. The blusher gives a really nice light coverage while the bronzer adds a dewy sparkle and helps to make my very pale skin look just a little sun kissed (when used sparingly, of course).
MUA - 'Undressed' Eyeshadow Palette
As with bronzer, eye shadow is not really my thing. I had conquered the white sparkle, grey and black eyeshadow trio for a smokey eye look and left it at that. Until I heard lots of good things about these MUA eye shadow palettes, so I thought for £4 for all these colours I should just give it a bash. I am so glad I did as it lasts all day and the little instructions on the back have helped me learn how to apply eye shadow properly to open my eyes. As I hear it is also a good alternative to the Urban Decay Naked Palettes which I am very intrigued by now.
Benefit - 'Their Real' Mascara
I think everybody and their Mumsy has been Shanghaied into purchasing this mascara recently. There is a very clever PR somewhere rubbing her hands together. And rightly so, all the glowing blog reviews and mentions had me oh so intrigued so I thought for a couple pounds more than a normal mascara I would give it a try. My first impressions were amazing, it really does make your lashes look huge which I loved. However the only downside is getting the stuff off again. This has sparked a new beauty lust of a decent make up remover. So it begins.
