NOTD - Barry M Instant Nail Effects!

I know you've seen so many posts with this nail polish but it's just so amazing I had to show you my NOTD!
I used a gold polish that I picked up at poundland which for £1 is really really good! Then I obviously added the Barry M Instant Nail Effect polish on top. I think it looks great and I was complimented on my nails while I was at work by a customer.

Have you tried the instant nail effects?

E.L.F and Eyeko Haul


So the past couple months have bought no make up at all so I thought it was time to change that!

It was E.L.F's 3rd birthday a couple of weeks ago and to celebrate they were giving away a free eye palette and free delivery if you spent over a certain amount (I think it was £10 but I'm not sure). There had been a few things I'd been eyeing up so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to get them.

The first thing I added to my basket was one of their brightening eye colours in Butternut. All 4 colours are really nice and have tiny flecks of glitter through them. They're all great every day colours!
The next thing that I got (it's not in the picture thought) was the daily brush cleaner. I've not tried this out yet but it smells amazing!!
I've been wanting a blending brush for ages so I popped the blending eye brush from the £1.50 range in with my stuff. I love this brush, it's so good for £1.50! It's the only E.L.F brush I've tried but after getting this one I'll definitely be trying some of the others.
I'm searching for a concealer that's going to cover my horrible dark circles so I thought I'd try there corrective concealer from the studio range. I've still to have a play about with it to see if it works though.
I also got their natural looking lush lashes and the eyebrow stencil set.
All this stuff came to £13 (I think!) which meant I would get free delivery and a free eye shadow palette! You would either get the party palette or the natural palette but it would be chosen at random what 1 you would get. I was hoping for the natural palette cause it's got more everyday colours, which is what I like, and I was so happy when that's the 1 that I got! 2 of the colours look really similar to 2 of the colours in butternut but they're all still great looking!

I also did a little bit of shopping on Eyeko as they had an offer on where you could get £20 worth of products for only £10! I also ordered one of their graffiti eyeliner pens in black which meant I could use an ambassador code and get a free gift! I added up all the products I got and I think I got another graffiti eyeliner free but this time it was in teal.

So for your £10 you got a selection of Eyeko's new products to the value of £20. I loved this idea cause you don't know what you're getting and it'll be a surprise when you get your parcel! I was a little worried I could end up with things that I hated.
I was very pleasantly surprised however!

In my goodie bag I got a London Lips lipgloss in Shoreditch (bottom right), Magic Bronzer Brush in Rio (top left) and Cheeky Colour in Glow Getter (top middle and right). I also got my 2 eyeliners (bottom left).

The only thing I might not use is the bronzer as it seems too dark for my pale skin but I might use it for contouring. All the rest I absolutely love! The blusher is exactly the colour I would have picked myself. It's a really nice pale pink and a nice bright pink, they both look brighter swatched than they do in the packaging. I wasn't sure about the lipgloss at first but once I swatched it I really liked it!

Overall I'm really pleased with all the things that I got!
Have you bought anything new recently??
