If you're anything like me then you can spend hours reading through blog posts and love finding new blogs to follow! Well this week I've put together a little list of some new blogs that I've found and think you should check out!
I really like this colour in the bottle but once I put it on I was a little unsure about it but it's growing on me. It's a peachy nude and I wasn't sure if it suited me. I've had it on for 4 days now though and I'm starting to like it. It's slightly darker in really life than it looks in the picture but it took 4 or 5 coats to get a decent colour pay off. It hasn't got one chip in it though which I am quite impressed with! I've got another 2 W7 polishes to try and I'm looking forward to trying them now seen as this one has lasted so well. Think I might be purchasing some more!!
I decided last night that I was going to attempt to make a salt spray for my hair. I've been wanting to try one for a while cause I love that beachy wave look but I've got super straight hair. I only had a little 100ml spray bottle but I thought I would still give it a go and if it worked I could get a bigger bottle.
So I poured my 100ml of water into my little measuring jug and added 1tsp of sea salt. I stirred it all together until the salt had dissolved and then poured it into my spray bottle and screwed on the lid. When I tried to get it to spray though it wouldn't work!
I tried everything I could to get it to spray but it just wasn't happening :( So in the end I just poured a little of the water onto my hand at a time and scrunched it into my hair. Then I split my hair into sections and put lose pleats in my hair so that they could dry over night.
This morning I jumped out of bed and whipped the baubles out to see if my hair had worked. I was quite impressed with the results, I don't think it was anything to do with the salt really more the fact my hair had been wet and left to dry, but my hair had a nice wave to it. The right side looks slightly better than the left so I've put it up with a nice flowery bauble cause I'm feeling very summery today!
I'm going to go and get another spray bottle that works and give this another go. Think I might also buy a salt spray and see how it compares.
Now on to my face of the day!
I've only got this one picture cause my camera died half way through taking the pictures.
Bourjois Illuminating Gel in Caramel
Sleek Contour kit in Light
The Colour Warehouse blusher (doesn't have a name but its a kinda pinky colour)
Natural Collection Cover Up Creme in Fair
Sleek Original Palette (purple shadow)
Sleek Bohemian Palette (light cream and purple shadow)
Thought I would share this little pic that I found, with you all of a FOTD and OOTD from when I went to see Pink.
I just wore my denim skirt with a white lace backed tshirt and a black vest underneath.
I can't remember what I used on my face cause it was a while ago now and I've only just realised I had the picture. I think it was my colourstay foundation, benefit smashbox, a brown eyeshadow all over my eye with my rimmel 1,2,3 mascara and a black eyeliner.
Excuse the claw like pose I've got going on here but wanted you to be able to see my little attempt at some nail art.
Tropical Island from 17 is a really nice orange colour and you cant see it from the picture but it's got little bits of gold glitter mixed through it. A nice summery colour I think! :)
On my thumb I just put 3 stars out of a pack of those confetti stars that you get. I picked out 2 dark blue stars and a light blue star and just positioned them where I wanted while the polish was still wet.
This look didn't last very long, but that's because I was naughty and picked it all off while I was waiting to do something. Oops!
If you follow me on Twitter then you might know that I was at my boyfriends at the weekend. He was busy on the Monday practicing for his bike test (which he passed!!!) so I got to spend the day in Maidstone shopping! Thought I would show you some of the things I picked up.
I finally got my hands on a Sleek contour kit. Ive been wanting one of these for ages but my local Superdrug never really has a great stock of Sleek products so I was pleased to finally be able to get one of these. I got it in light seen as im so pale! I tried it today and I love it! Definitely going to be doing a face of the day with this.
It was difficult to get a picture where you can see the highliter but it was really nice once it was on my cheeks and gave a really nice glow.
I also picked up an eye crayon from Saver for 69p! Bargain! It's a nice shimmery pink colour (bottom of the swatches).
While in Primark I saw this gorgeous butterfly ring and had to have it! Can't wait to wear it out!
I also picked up 3 W7 nail polishes, a pink one, a peach one and a grey one, and an Elizabeth Arden gel eyeliner in black (second from the bottom on swatch picture).
Ive not spent any money in ages so was nice to get some new things. Need to try save the pennies though so going to try not buy any more for a while now! We'll see how long that lasts though ;)
So these reviews are becoming a bit of a weekly feature! This is the third face mask from the Montagne Jeunesse range that I've reviewed on my blog.
(Picture taken from Superdrug website)
This mask was one of their peel off masks which is designed to remove dead skin cells, impurities and unblock your pores. It has cucumber in it so it's nice and cooling when you apply it as well.
When you apply this mask it comes out the packet as a clear green liquid which you just slap on your face! You leave it to dry, which took about 15 minutes but some parts that were obviously a little thicker took longer. There's not much of a smell to this mask, a slight cucumber smell at the most.
One of the things I love about this mask is that you peel it off! It's a little weird but I find something strangely satisfying about peeling off the mask, especially when it all comes off in one! Peel off masks are also great cause they so easy to take off and make hardly any mess.
Once I'd taken the mask off my skin felt nice and smooth and looked slightly more awake than before I put the mask on. And there's something really relaxing about having a face mask on. So overall I was pretty pleased with this mask and think I would definitely purchase it again.
I saw this on Ros' blog and thought I would try it out myself! I have way too many beauty products in my room that I don't use up before buying new stuff so I've made a list and until that categories is used up I'm not buying any other beauty products!
