Kleenex Shine Absorbing Sheets

Now I know I am a bit late with these as they have been discontinued (as far as I know) and the only places I have found them are Home Bargains where they are a massive 29p or on Amazon where they can be a lot more.

These little beauties are a godsend, they take off any excess oil that might be on your face to stop your make-up from disappearing (I'm late to blotting papers, where the heck have I been living??).

They come in a small box and contain 50 purple sheets, the top of the box also contains a sticky bit that when the packet is opened will pull out just the one sheet (ingenious, and yes simple things for simple minds here).

I love the design of the sheets, they have a leaves/vines patten on one side and the other side is the side you use to blot your face, once you have blotted your face the paper goes a darker purple.

These are brillaint, and it is gutting that Kleenex have discontinued these (when I am in Home Bargains I always grab a load to keep my stocks up).

Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Base Coat

I paint my nails quite a lot, and sometimes they can become quite brittle and start to flake so I want a strengthener that will stop my nails from flaking.

I have been using this for a couple of weeks as a base coat, I also used it just on my nails when I wasn't painting them just so they weren't overloaded with nail polish and only had on something that would help them strengthen up.

This has been doing a really good job and my nails are slowly but sure coming back to a good and healthy normal.

I'll keep using this either on its own or as a base coat, overall a good nail strengthener.

Any good nail strengtheners that you have been using recently?

Boots Expert Build Up Shampoo

I was looking for a shampoo that would deep clean my hair, I have very oily hair, and something that would just really get in to all the nooks and crannys and remove it all would be fantastic.

I was perusing the aisles of Boots and came across the Boots Expert build up removal shampoo, and I thought I would give this a try.

Now with any shampoo that says that it is going to remove any build up in your hair then even to me that tells me to only use it once a week, otherwise it might strip your hair of any nutrients that it needs.

I have really oily hair (sounds better than greasy to me), and since I have been using this I have noticed that it does take longer for my hair to get oilier (which is brillaint).

The shampoo comes out clear, and you use it just like a normal shampoo (rinse and repeat if necessary).

I am in love with this shampoo, it really does deep clean my hair and remove all that oil (and any products that I may have used during the week) and I will repurchase this again.

NYC Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer

I've said previously that I am trying out drugstore primers to see if I can find a good quality, but low cost primer.

Next up is N.Y.C Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer, this states that it will instantly transform my complexion by boosting my skin's radiance and making any redness fade over time.

The product has micro-fine glitter so that when it does go on your face it gives your skin a glow. Now don't be scared when I said that it has glitter, it is a very very fine glitter and to be honest you don't really see it on the skin when the primer is added. I only managed to see it on my skin when I was under some very bright lights, so this does give you a subtle glow.

I can't say that I did notice any redness on my face fading over the couple of weeks that I used it but it wasn't too bad, I would purchase again, maybe not straight away but maybe in the future.

Sally Hansen Insta Dry

DISCLAIMER: All opinions are my own and products were bought with my own money.

I grabbed this while I was out on a shopping trip and thought I would try this out. It's the age old story, you paint your nails with 2 or 3 coats and then  you go to do something once you have been waiting ages and they smudge, well this was boasting that it could dry any nail polish in 30 seconds (very big boasts don't you think).

For the past couple of times that I have painted my nails I have been using this as a top coat (I've been using it on my mum's nails as well) and I will admit it does dry them fast, and adds a nice smooth finish to the nail.

This does only dry the top coat of the nail, and the nail can still be a bit squidy (is that a technical term). This is a bit of a con against the top coat but I would still repurchase this.

Johnson's Baby Shampoo

I have gotten into the habit of cleaning my brushes as I have started to use them quite regularly, and I read or saw on a beauty blog that they used Johnson's Baby shampoo to clean their brushes, and that seemed to me a really good idea.

With make up brushes and cleaning them, I am not going to use something that I wouldn't use on my face, and with Johnson's Baby Shampoo at least you know it isn't going to be harmful to your skin. I previously posted about how I clean my brushes which can be found here.

This is a gentle shampoo, and works really well on my brushes to get the brush cleaner out, as well as any last bits of make up that might be stuck in the bristles and I'm safe in the knowledge that when using the brushes I'm not going to be spreading any nasty chemicals onto my face.

Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover

I had never really tried a cuticle remover before but I noticed this in a blog post by Vivianna Does Makeup, and thought it might be a good idea to try a cuticle remover, and see if it helped when painting my nails.

This was a big surprise to me, the remover has a gel consistency, and the applicator is just a nozzle, this allows for easy application to the cuticle.

You keep the gel on for 15 seconds and then use a cuticle stick to gently push and then remove the cuticle. Once you have finished it needs to be washed off in warm soapy water (as noted by the instructions on the back).

This is a good remover, and one I have now added to my mani routine due to the fact that the product is so easy to use and takes seconds to work.

Maybelline Volum' Express The Rocket (Waterproof)

This is a mascara that seems to be taking the blogging and YouTube world by storm, everyone and their granny seems to love this mascara. I just had to take The Rocket out for a spin and see if it was worth all the hype.

I road tested the waterproof version of the mascara (The non-waterproof has pink writing on the side of the bottle).

I have to admit this mascara was pretty darn good, when pulling the brush out of the tube there was no excess product (which I hate as it leads to clumpy lashes), so because of this my lashes didn't turn into spider's legs and spread out quite evenly.

The only problem that I did encounter was that it was a pain to take off (even using Garnier's Micellar Water), so it really is waterproof, and a specialised eye makeup remover is needed.

Cutex Strengthening Nail Polish Remover

DISCLAIMER: This was bought with Boots loyalty points

I had quite a lot of points on my card from Christmas shopping last month so I treated myself to some things and this was one of them.

I like a strengthening nail polish remover, because I wear a lot of nail polish my nails can become brittle and start to flake a bit.

This comes in a 200ml bottle and contains a load of good things to help keep your nails strong.

I have noticed that it has stopped my nails becoming as brittle as they were (still a work in progress but good news so far)

It also works really well in taking my nail polish off, and great for when I need to fix any mistakes that I may have made (I pour a tiny bit into the cap and dip some cotton buds in the solution, works a treat)

I would buy this remover again in the future, and good for a cheap nail polish remover.

The Body Shop Mango Hand Cleanse Gel

DISCLAIMER: I got this as a freebie, the offer was spend £50 and get £25 off, this was one of the products I picked up.

I grabbed this for when I was going to London for a few days as something to go in my train case so at least I would have a hand gel for when we stop at the service stations (I am a toilet snob, I hate public toilets, you just never know who has touched the taps after they've been in the loo). Most hand gels smell clinical and not very nice so when I saw this one in The Body Shop so I put it into my basket (I forgot to grab one from Boots/ Superdrug and saw this on one of their displays).

The Body Shop's range of hand cleanse gels come in 5 scents:

  • Coconut
  • Strawberry
  • Mango
  • Satsuma
  • Pink Grapefruit

They retail for £2.50 and come in a 60ml bottle, great to stick in your handbag. It is a clear gel and the bottle is a flip cap (which lessens the inevitability that it will open and leak all over my bag)

It is supposed to smell of Mango, I can't really smell that, it does smell quite sweet (sickly sweet if you want a better description). It does make my hands smell really fruity rather then the clinical smell you do get with other hand gel types which is a plus.

I would by this hand gel again, and I would try the other scents (I have my eye on satsuma, and coconut)

Collection Metallic Cream Eyeshadow

The collection metallic cream eyeshadows come in a range of 6 colours, and I have 4 of those, all these eyeshadows are highly pigmented:

Copper Pot
As you can gather by the name this is a coppery tone,

Platinum Bling
This is a nice silvery colour, good if you want to add a highlight to the inner corner of the eye

Rock N Rose
This is a light pink colour, quite subtle on the lids (so it doesn't look like you've been hit in the eye).

Gold Rush
This is quite a strong gold colour, good for on a night out.

These are good eyeshadows and are very creamy, the only con to them is that you do have to wait for a bit for the eyeshadow to dry (I end up wafting my hands over my eyelids to make them dry quickly). If you open your eyes then you end up smudging them and it just ends up everywhere.

Overall a good eyeshadow but quite a faff on trying to get them dry when you're in a rush.

Bourjois Fan-Tastic Volume Mascara

I was quite fickle with this purchase, as

A)I wanted the free gift that was on offer,


B) I'd been eyeing this mascara up for ages because I love the packaging.

Now I am a tiny bit dissapointed, as you can see in the picture above the brush gets so overloaded with product you can hardly see the actual brush.

Once on the eyelashes it can make my eyelashes quite clumpy and give you spider's leg (and you do need an eyelash brush to de-clump).

I don't know if I would buy this again as I am not a big fan of how much product goes onto the brush, I have to clean the brush off on the side which then wastes some of the product and for the price of the product that is quite bad.

Overall not a big big fan I would till use it but I don't think I'll repurchase again.

Real Techniques - Expert Face Brush

I am a late comer when it comes to Real Techniques brushes, these are a massive hit over YouTube and the Blogging world so I finally decided to splurge out on some for the new year.

One of the brushes I bought was the Expert Face Brush, and my god where has this brush been all my life. I used this to put on my foundation and it blended it all in brilliantly, and gave a great coverage. I am converted to these brushes, and will keep adding some of the different ones to my collection (I am eyeing up the setting brush, and some of the eye makeup brushes)

Do you use Real Techniques brushes? If so which ones do you use?

SEVENTEEN On The Spot Foundation - Porcelain

This is a new foundation from SEVENTEEN and comments that in four weeks it will help get rid of any blemishes that might be on your skin with its unique Skin Clear Complex containing salicylic acid. Now this to me was a huge boast that a foundation that can do all that.

I will admit that I did start to see a change in my skin, breakouts did become less and less regular, so it helped there. I will admit that the colour I have (Porcelain, which was the lightest shade) is a tiny bit darker then my skin tone (maybe even a fraction, but I was told it gives my face a bit of colour), so might be best worn in the months that my face may need a hint of colour (Would be a good foundation during the winter months when some colour is needed).

When the foundation comes out it is quite a gooey consistency, like a gel almost, it has an SPF of 15 which is good (I do like my foundation to have some SPF in so at least I know it'll be protected during the summer months). It is also a full coverage foundation (which I have noticed), I have been using the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush which helps to give a lighter coverage of the foundation.

Overall not a bad foundation, it did help my skin, but they need some lighter shades in their colour range.

Natural Collection Water Guard Mascara - Black

Now this mascara has surprised even me, I picked it up out of 2 reasons

1) I needed a new mascara,


2) I didn't want to spend that much on one as I'd forked out a fortune for Christmas.

This mascara was only £1.99 and I know cheap mascara's are very scary as you never know what they are going to turn out like, but as I said very surprised it didn't clump my lashes together (no spider legs for me thank you), and it gave them a bit of length. Another added bonus is that the mascara is also waterproof, and this has been tested and it does hold.

If you are in a bind and need a mascara during skint week or you are on a budget then this is a good one to choose and for under £2 this is a good buy.

Lush Lip Scrub - Mint Juleps

My lips can be quite dry and I was in Lush in November and discovered their range of lip scrubs, I had a snifter as you do and loved the smell of Mint Juleps (it smelled of After Eights), and I thought was the right one for the upcoming christmas season.

What you do is you dab your finger into the pot and rub the product all over your lips, once you have scrubbed your lips you can then lick it off, I use water to wash it off because it's also dry skin as well yuk!

This also comes in Bubblegum, and Popcorn flavours.

This works really well on the lips to take off the dead skin but you do need to put a lip balm on after, the mint juleps one smells gorgeous and because of the mint is quite refreshing on your lips.

I will buy this product again but I will have to try the other smells/flavours.

No7 Matte Top Coat

I have been looking for a matte top coat for ages, I looked in Boots, Syperdrug, and even online to see if I could find a matte top coat. While in a Boots store I saw the No7 Matte Top Coat from the No7 Nail Effects range, and I thought bingo let's give this a whirl.

This goes onto the nail really easily (The colour I have on there is Mavala's Peacock Green) as you can see the brush is lovely and wide so covers the nail on first swipe.

So if your wanting to have a matte effect on your nails this is a good top coat.

Natural Collection Eye Lines

I don't have many eyeliners, as I only really use them when I am going on a night out, nights when I want to really bring out my eyes (they are my best feature I think).

Whenever I do use eyeliner I always go for the generic black colour but over the festive period last month I decided to buy a green eyeliner.

Now I admit I only really put eyeliner on my lower lash line and the waterline so when adding this onto my lower lash line it does give a hint of colour but it is quite subtle, so if you wanted the green to stand out then you would have to build the eyeliner up.

Overall it's a nice colour I would wear this on rare occasions when I wanted a specific look.

Thanks for tuning in


Honeymainia EDT (The Body Shop)

DISCLAIMER:This was a gift for Christmas but I would have bought this for myself if it hadn't been near Christmas when I saw this.

I love The Body Shop, their products are fantastic, and their new honeymania range smells absolutely lovely, so when I saw they had the perfume, it went to the top of my Christmas list.

It has become one of my favourite scents, and a permanent feature in my bag, it smells quite sweet but also has a hint of flowers. This is a perfect scent for the summer months as it also has a fresh kind of smell to it and even during winter reminded me so much of summers lazing in the garden enjoying the sun.

Thanks for tuning in


Soap & Glory™ One Heck of a Blot

I was looking for a powder that would keep my make up on during the day, and I came across the One Heck of a Blot pressed powder from Soap & Glory.

The powder is very light weight on the skin, and doesn't feel to heavy (like it will clog up your pores more then you want it to). The powder when applied goes translucent on the skin even in the compact it is a nude colour. Once you get your brush in the compact you can see that it is finely milled and goes onto the face with ease (It doesn't look cakey, and you don't have patches all over the place).

This is one of my favourite pressed powders and keeps my make up on my face during the day, I will also be repurchasing this again as it has become part of my daily make-up routine.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils

I love an eyeshadow pencil as they are so easy to apply on a night out. NYX cosmetics have been making the rounds on YouTube and Blogging websites, and the bug hit me, I wanted to try some of these and so I grabbed some of the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils to see what all the fuss is all about.

The ones I have are:

  • Rust
  • French Fries
  • Dark Brown
  • Sparkle Green
  • Cashmere
  • Horseradish
  • Cobalt
  • Bronze

Sparkle Green
Is a lovely christmassy green colour, I wore this colour during December for a christmassy look, but during the day I used a lighter eyeshadow over the top just to lighten the colour up. This is perfect when you want to create a dark, and dramatic look.

French Fries
This is a lovely gold type of colour with a lovely shimmer running through it, I do wear this one quite a lot as it's lovely for a daytime look, it's a very subtle colour.

Dark Brown
This is another colour that is good for a night time look especially when doing a smoky eye look.

This is a lovely metallic shade, a shade that is good for a night out by adding some bling to your eyes.

Cashmere is a lovely light gold colour, good for during the day.

This is a lovely blue colour (I'm in a blue colour phase at the moment), and perfect for a night time look, or a smokey eye.

This is another colour I wore during December as it has a reddish undertone, I wore this to my Christmas party and paired it up with the NYX Shimmer Roll On in Platinum to add a bit of sparkle to my look.

This is a mint green colour, good for a subtle day time look

I love these pencils, they are so easy to use and they come in such a great colour range (32 shades overall), and they can be used as an eyeliner to add a bit of drama to a look.

These can be found on the NYX website or at your local Next.

Zoya Remove+ Nail Polish Remover

I saw this product in a blog post by Vivianna Does Makeup, and really liked the idea of the easy to use pump action for getting out your nail polish remover and it dispensing the ideal amount. I bought mine from Amazon for £10.

I will admit I had to find a YouTube video to figure out how to open it as the pump locks so none of the product is lost in transit.

The pump dispenses a good amount of the polish onto the cotton wool and removes the polish off of the nail quite quickly, it even made light work of the toughest of glitter nail polish. The smell of the product isn't as bad as other polish removers (which have quite a chemical scent), and it does remove non glitter nail polish really quickly.

I agree with Anna that the price is a biggy (£10) but I have to admit that I would still repurchase it again even at it's price because it is just that good. The pro's way, way, way, outweigh the cons of the product.

I will also be recycling the packaging and putting some of the cheap polish remover in there once I've used up the product.

Superdrug Style Expertise Anti Frizz Serum 30ml

I bought this serum during skint week, the nozzle had broken on my John Frieda anti-frizz serum and it was just making a mess everywhere, so to save money I bought this to give it a try and at only £2.99 the price was quite reasonable.

You only need a small amount to rub onto your hands and then just run it through your damp hair (I use this as soon as I've come out of the shower/ bath)

This is quite a good product and I will be repurchasing again, to me it was a absolute dupe for the Frizz Ease serum and at a fraction of the cost.

Absinthe - Models Own

I have another entry from Models Own Velvet Goth collection - Absinthe.

This is a Dark Green glitter based in a green jelly polish, the colour looks fantastic for Christmas. On my pictures you can't really see how green the polish is.

On the 1st coat onto the nail it goes a light green/turquoise colour, but on the 2nd coat it becomes darker and more opaque.

The polish is quite gloopy, and thick (this is probably because of the amount of glitter that has been packed in there).

The polish once on the nail looks brilliant, and a gorgeous colour for Christmas 2014.

Empties: December 2013

* denotes gift, ^ bought with points.

Welcome to another edition of my monthly empties.

As you know I was trying a use-up month in December and I did really well, so let's get on with the empties, I know I am also late with my empties, my favourites will be posted tomorrow.

  1. Chocomania Body Butter (The Body Shop) - I absolutely love this range, this body butter is just gorgeous, keeps my skin all lovely and smooth. I haven't repurchased as I'm using some others up at the moment.
  2. Nivea Invisible for Black and White Deodorant - This deodorant is suppose to go on clear and not transfer white patches onto black clothing or turn white clothing yellow. To be honest I didn't really notice if it did or not, I probably won't repurchase as again I have a load of deodorants flying around that need to be used up.
  3. 3 in 1 Cleansing Wipes (Co-Op) - These were good for the price but they did feel quite rough on my skin so won't be repurchasing again.
  4. Cosmetic Brush Cleaner (Strictly Professional) - This is a favourite for cleaning my brushes, and the price is really reasonable, and I will be repurchasing this again.
  5. Strengthening Nail Polish Remover (Sally Hansen) - This wasn't a bad nail polish remover, removed all my polish and it did leave my nails feeling quite nice and smooth.
  6. Round Cotton Wool Pads x200 (Asda Skin System) - These I did find quite rough on my skin so I mostly used them for removing my nail polish but for the price (£1) they weren't bad and I would repurchase.
  7. Square Cotton Wool Pads x50 (Bodycare) - These I absolutely loved, they were so soft, and they were brilliant for spot cleaning my brushes, I will be repurchasing this again.
  8. Herbal Essences Fresh Balance Clarifying Shampoo -  This was flying around my bathroom for ages and I finally managed to finish it, it had a lovely smell and it did leave my hair feeling lovely and soft.
  9. Chocomainia Body Scrub (The Body Shop)* - This was part of a gift set that I got for Christmas 2012 and only just got round to using, and I am now wondering why it took me so long as this stuff was fantastic and smelt lovely.
  10. Cleansing Wipes (Boots)^ - These were a repurchase after finishing the co-op wipes, and one I will repurchase again
  11. Oval Cotton Wool Pads (Superdrug) - I initially didn't like these pads because they felt quite rough on my skin but they were great for cleaning my brushes.
  12. Maybelline SuperStay 24Hr Foundation: Light Beige - This was a fantastic foundation and one I will repurchase again in the near future. Had very good coverage and was very lightweight on the skin, and the colour match was brilliant too.
  13. Rimmel Exaggerate Shadow Primer - This was a good primer, and I might repurchase but at the moment am using my avon lid primer.
  14. Batiste Dry Shampoo: Floral - This was a travel size that I have had for ages and just managed to use it up.
  15. Cotton Wool Buds x2 (Superdrug) - These are my favourite cotton buds for cleaning up my nails after a messy mani, think I have 5 tubs of these and have just purchased another.
  16. Johnsons Baby Shampoo - I use this just to clean my brushes when doing a deep clean just to wash out the brush cleanser so there's nothing left behind on the brushes.
  17. B. Pure Micellar Water - This I was not impressed with, I couldn't take my eye makeup off with it because it stung my eyes something rotten. Won't be repurchasing again.
  18. Chocomaina Beautifying Oil (The Body Shop) - I like a body oil for when I come out of the shower/bath and this one was fantastic (if you notice the bottle got a bit battered from being in the shower - oopsie). The price of £9 is reasonable but I haven't repurchased as I am trying out cheaper alternatives (watch out for a post on one I'm trying at the moment)

My Vampire is Buff - O.P.I

DISCLAIMER: All opinions are my own and product has been bought with my own money.

My Vampire is Buff - O.P.I
My Vampire is Buff - O.P.I

This is a lovely light beige creme colour from O.P.I's Euro Centrale collection, I wouldn't of naturally assumed this as an autumnal colour but it actually is a really nice colour or autumn (I put this on originally as it matched a top I was wearing for a night out). I think this colour brings a bit of light to the season but still being part of the seasonal colours.

The first coat when it goes onto the nail is quite streaky, on the second coat you can still see some bleed through of the nail, so three coats was best to make the polish fully opaque.

The polish is quite thin (hence the three coats) but it does look good on the nail once all coats have been added. This is a polish I will be wearing again.
