little things i've bought recently




Nivea Express Hydration Primer Dry/Sensitive (£4.99) - I'd seen this product featured on YouTube adverts quite a lot and I don't really use a primer so thought I'd try this as it's a combination of both a moisturiser and primer!

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover (£4.99) - This nail polish remover has been featured a huge amount in the beauty blogging world over the past few months and I'd been dying to see what the fuss was about. As it was included in Boots 3 for 2 I was persuaded to buy it & I'm kinda glad I did! I'll put a full review up soon.

L'Oreal Top Coat 'Confetti' (£4.99) - After seeing the Illamasqua speckled nail polish I really wanted to recreate a similar effect but without the ridiculous price tag. This was under five pounds & I can have speckled nails in any colour I wish! I haven't stopped wearing this over the top of various pretty pastel shades since I bought it!

Real Techniques Setting Brush (£8.99) - Another RT brush to add to my collection, justified by the excuse "I need a brush to apply my MAC mineralize skin finish with!" I'm probably also going to use this to powder my face but it's the perfect size to highlight with.

Maybelline Falsies Mascara (7.99) - I don't tend to try many different mascaras, I just stick to what is cheap, usually Rimmel, because my eyelashes don't need much help with volume or length really. I'm not actually sure why I bought this in the end but I'm sure it'll be great, I know Tanya Burr swears by it anyway!

L'Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim 'Black Intense' (£6.99) - The L'Oreal Superliners are my favourite liquid eye liners, they're easy peasy to use, really black rather than that annoying 'faded' black shade and they don't flake. 

Topshop Lip Liner 'Deception' (£5.00 or £4.50 with student discount!) - My all time favourite lipstick is Topshops Beguiled and Deception is very similar in colour. It will be perfect to help it last even longer, especially for nights out. 

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Shadow Stick '008 Blackmail' (£5.99) - I hadn't really heard about these shadow sticks before until I spotted them in the Rimmel counter. I was going to pick another colour but fear that it wouldn't suit me got the better of me & I stuck to trusty black. I've actually been using this more like a kohl eyeliner, it's super super pigmented but also really soft & creamy meaning application is gentle. I really like the idea of these, I might pick up the bronzey coloured one next!

River Island Gold Heart Thumb Ring (£2) - I had this on a wishlist post a while ago, it's the tiniest, cutest ring ever, I love it!

Have you tried any of these products!? Let me know in the comments! (:

  7. I've never seen that Nivea primer before, but I'm definitely gonna try it. That little ring is so cute too! I swear by the Falsies mascara, probably the only mascara I always repurchase. :)

  11. Great buys - although the 'pretty quik' nail polish remover pot is fantastic and it is much cheaper than the bourjois one x
