Recent purchases

I have recently made a few cheeky buys. Nothing that broke the bank as it is ... save save save in my life.

I bought a few nail polishes as I don't really have a spring/summer collection.
Where I went there was an amazing offer on The Barry M collection, 3 for 2... Always have to buy items when there 3 for 2 . I bought....

Green berry, Atlantic road, Papaya   

Berry Lilac, Bright Pink, Clear top coat

 I also made some makeup purchases. There was a 3 for 2 offer on the brand Seventeen which I have never tried, so I thought I would buy 3 different mascaras.... Just to test out and see what the brand is like.

Va va voom and blow out brushes remind me on of the 'Maybelline Colossal express volume mascara' which is my favourite... fingers crossed there as good :)
Va va voom

Blow out


It was also 3 for 2 one the collection I wanted to try out some new eyebrow pencils...recently used up my Rimmel London one.

  • Intense colour kohl pencil
  • Eyebrow definer 
  • Collection shimmer shades (blusher)
Never guess what... 3 for 2 on soap and glory. Soap and glory are my favourite bath and body brand in the entire world. All the products smell absolutely amazing and are just simply awesome. So I couldn't really resist, would you be able to?

If you want a review on any of my cheeky purchases then just let me know.

Favourite Mascara

Hello there,

How is your day going?
I've just got back from work so I'm very tired but I thought I would do a small blogpost on my favourite mascara.
I have tried a lot mascaras over the years (mainly drugstore) and i have a few favourites. When i do my eyelashes in the morning sometimes i like to use a range of different mascaras.... anyone else do that?

The mascara which I will always have in my makeup bag without a doubt is 'Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara'. I tried this mascara a long long time ago purely because it was on 3 for 2 in boots.

I fell in love this product it is amazing!!!

Packaging isn't anything special really just a mascara packaging. I do like the fact that it's bright yellow and stands out in my make up bag however it doesn't look expensive or sophisticated. The retail price for the mascara is £7.19. Therefore the package does reflect the price.

I like the fact that the it doesn't come out clumpy on the brush like other mascaras i have tried in the past. This mascara always lasts me along time... I don't actually think i have finished one i use it for a long time and then see maybelline on offer so i just get a new one :)

One of my absolute favourite things about this mascara is the fact that it isn't a plastic wand. I don't feel like I can get good volume or length with plastic wands... My eyelashes don't like plastic

This is what the mascara looks like this is taken after a long day but I am still happy with how they look after a hard day at work experience and college with out a touch up... yes i need my eyebrows doing majorly there becoming wild

Whats your favourite mascara?

Hope you've had a good day! What are your weekend plans, anything interesting?
