Nails Inc Colour Collection

Hey, sorry its been ages! Same old stuff really. I've been at uni since the end of my placement in September, its frustrating but im getting on alright, just got essays i need to buckle down and do! 

I've been spending a lot of time catching up with my friends which is lovely, seeing my friends baby who is beeeauutiful! Such a cuddly little monkey! Its nice just to chill and take a few seconds to remember what is important in life! 

I went shopping the other day to the new Tkmaxx near me, i love the one in Ipswich but Bury st Edmunds is so much closer to me so its nice to be able to just pop in there when i want! 

I went straight to the beauty goodies and saw some lovely nail polishes! This Nails Inc set caught my eye, it has everything i love in nail polishes! Glitter, pink, purple and a nude/taupe one for the times you need serious nails! (Ha serious nails!) I was a bit cautious because I dont want a fake set, i checked all the things i could think of, and then thought "who cares!" if its fake and i've not paid a fortune does it matter? i still like the colours so i dont really care if they are fake! 

I have checked since i got home just so i could let other people know they are/aren't fake and im still unsure! So if you think i've got fakes by the picture let me know!! 

These aren't the best pictures but the lighting is really bad in my kitchen at the moment! Sorry, the whole set was £14.99 normally much more than that!  So i hope they arent fake but if they are im still going to enjoy them!! :D

Rimmel "Kate" lipstick in 05

Hi people of the internet! Hope your having a lovely October! Mines been a bit crap, i've got flu! Yuckkk. Im in a constant state of not being able to breath through my nose, and chocking on tea! Its rubbish!

Recently I popped into Superdrug to get my trusty Blistex lip saver and found myself drawn to the new Kate Moss Rimmel collection, after seeing it sprout up on blogs all over the place I thought i'd give it a glance. Boy am I glad I did! This lipstick is perfect for me at the moment, it goes with my new darker hair colour and more grungy clothing style. 

The colour is 05, clearly a very creative name there... but its easy to remember and doesn't make you feel like a perv when telling people what its called... (Nars Orgasm comes to mind)

I wore this out to a birthday party last week and I have to say, I was extreamly impressed with its staying power, I was drinking and nibbling things and it just stayed put like Urban Decay eye liner! :D +1 to the Rimmel lipstick then! 

The only downside to this fab product is its smell, I have a nose like a bloodhound (makes being a nurse all the more gross) the smell of this lipstick is plasticy, like cheap lipstick, which it is! But that's what you get with a £4.97 price tag. 

I have to say, the packaging is impressive too, its sleek and neat and looks pretty professional (if a lipstick can be professional :S) Apart from the huge white sticker and bar code, anyone could look at the tube and say it was high end! :D Lets face it, we all want to be proud of a lipstick we take out of our bag and put on while were on the train! 

The colour is a peachy pink with a hint of rose, its matte so it can dry your lips. I like to put some of my trusty Blistex on a few mins before so it can soak in, so when you apply the lipstick it doesn't feel like your lips are going to crack. 

I have to say, for a cheap drug store lipstick im pretty surprised by the staying power and colour, and it helps that you could by at least 2 for the price of one Mac lipstick! :D

Norwich Haul

Hello! How is everyone? Sorry its been so long, i've just finished my placement on A&E and absolutely loved it! Seen some amazing stuff but its nice to be going back to Uni on Tuesday and seeing the Uni girls (and boy) :D 

I went shopping yesterday with my mum, we went to Norwich even though i am full of a cold :( Mum wanted to find a Jacket and some other things and i just went along to pick up some bits of make-up i needed :)

I bought some moisturiser because my Clinique moisturising lotion is all used up, i decided to buy Liz Earle skin repair moisturiser because i wanted something a little thicker than the lotion i was using before. I have used Liz Earle moisturiser before and was really impressed! Its only £18.50 as well which is less than the Clinique one :D

I also picked up my Urban Decay eyeliner in Mildew, its the prettiest golden green that works on its own or with lots of green toned eye shadow. 

I havent been to Lush in a while so i popped in to see what was new and got some "lush" bath bombs, the new Twilight bomb and geo fizz, which is meant to be good for colds! :( lets hope it works!

L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil

 Hey guys, how have you been?!? It's been a while since I posted, im on placement at the moment in A&E so i've been so busy! 

I have been meaning to post about this product for a few weeks, i bought it in august time and have been using it on and off. 

Originally i bought it after seeing lots of blogs mention it and how it was a "favourite product" of many bloggers out there!  

I haven't had the best time with this product, but that could be partly my fault. I knew this shower oil wasn't going to foam up as much as a "normal" shower gel, but i wasn't expecting the foam to be so little and last for such a small time. 

The smell is also very mild, and for someone who likes a strong smelling shower gel this really wasn't the product for me! This isn't the fault of the product, but my expectations were very high. 

When buying the product, i smelt it and felt it, looked at the price and had to pick my jaw off the floor! I can't actually believe i spend £16.50 on a shower gel! When I normally stretch to (at most) £6 on a shower gel, spending nearly double that i was expecting something fantastic! I was slightly disappointed with this product. 

Im not advising you guys not to buy this product i just wanted to give you my thoughts on it :)

Purple/taupe eyes

Hey guys, thought i would just do a quick post about my new eye products. I bought both of these on holiday, well one on holiday the other at the airport. 

I really love this purple/taupe eye colour its much more wearable during the day than my usual bright purple.

I used Urban Decay Rockstar as the eyeliner. 

The only problem with this Channel eye product (i think its cross between a shadow and a cream) is it doesnt have amazing lasting power. Around 2/3 hours and it does crease without a primer.
