Beauty: Another Day, Another Drugstore Haul...


Ohhh I'm a sucker for those 3for2 offers! You know the story - go into Boots for some shampoo and hair grips, end up coming out with none of the above and half of the Barry M stand...life is hard.

I'd heard about the new(ish) manicure range from Barry M and was seriously intrigued. I have horribly brittle nails that need some TLC, so I picked up one of the Super Mani 7-in-1 treatments. Filled with argan oil and keratin to name a few nourishing qualities, this applies as a basecoat to bare nails which treats the nails as well as providing the perfect base for nail polish.
I also finally picked up Essie's Cocktail Bling after having it on my wishlist for a gazillion years and I have barely stopped wearing it since I got it if only to wear the other shade I picked up - Barry M's Speedy Quick Dry in Sprint Finish. One is a gorgeous lilac-grey, the other a dark wine red and both are going to be my nail favourites for a long while to come!

I was in the market for a new mascara and after scrutinizing every stand's array of mascaras, I finally settled on the new Revlon Ultimate All-In-One Mascara. Revlon have recently overhauled their mascara collection in favour of a range of similarly packaged wands all of which claim to do something different to the lashes. Whether you're after length, volume or definition, there's a mascara to suit, and to get the best of both worlds, I went with the Ultimate All-In-One. It definitely does a little bit of everything and while it will never replace my beloved Lash Sensational, I'm really enjoying using it so far! If anything, it definitely makes for a fab bottom lash mascara.

I happily repurchased the Soap & Glory Supercat eyeliner, and I kid you not when I say that this is probably my 6th one?! I can't get enough of this little badboy - the formula, the staying power, the application, I LOVE IT.
Something else I've been loving is the L'Oreal Sculpt range and I couldn't help myself but pick up a bit of the action. I decided on the Sculpt blush (in shade Soft Rosy), which has contains 3 lovely pink shades that can be used separately or together for the ultimate contoured cheek. I love it so far and have my eye on the Infallible Sculpt Contour palette next!

Lastly and probably my pick of the bunch is the Nip & Fab Glycolic Fix Night Pads Extreme. My skin has been suffering in the transition from winter to spring and I needed something to give it a bit of a boost and these have definitely done just that, Plus they smell bloody amazing and it's the first product I've used in a long time where I've seen instant results!

  4. I need to try the mascara from Revlon, I actually didn't find in my life, a mascara that was able to satisfy me. Maybe I'm too picky, but I am not giving up! :)
