La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo



Over the past months I have been hearing lots of good things about this skin care product so I decided to give it a go when I had some Boots points to use. Since having Thomas my skin has been awful especially around the chin area which you may remember I have mentioned before. I have used a few other spot treatments and they haven't really helped so I had high hopes for this product as lots of bloggers whose opinions I trust have said it was a good product and I wasn't let down.

The Effaclar Duo claims to sort out on the surface spots as well as those pesky spots that lurk under your skin. I have been using this as a daily moisturiser twice a day but paying particular attention to any problem areas and I really have noticed a difference. Any spots that I do have clear up a lot quicker than they use to and you know those spots that stay under the skin and can be quite painful well this has definitely helped to take the pain away and then clears it up a lot quicker.

In general my skin also feels a lot smoother so I definitely feel like this is a multitasking product. This retails for £13 from Boots and I definitely think it is worth the money I'm also tempted to try some of there other products when my points build up again.

Current Favourites

I have wanted to do a favourites post for a while now but I can't keep up with monthly posts as I don't use that many products in order to do that. So I will just do the occasional favourites post, some posts it will just be beauty products other posts I may include baby products, foods, books, films anything as long as it has been a favourite.


My first favourite is The Daily Smooth body butter from Soap & Glory. The consistency is thick and it's suppose to be for dry skin and I have definitely seen a difference since I have been using it.

Heel Genius by Soap & Glory has also been another favourite of mine as I am trying to get my feet in good condition just in case we ever have a summer this year for me to wear sandals.

I have also been loving the No7 Beautiful Skin hot cloth cleanser, it's perfect for taking your make up and it leaves my face feeling clean and soft.

I can't believe I have never spoken about this mascara before, it is the Rimmel Glam Eyes lash flirt. I'm afraid this may be discontinued as I got it in B&M for £1.99 but I would probably go as far as to say it is one of my favourite mascaras I have ever tried it makes my lashes look so much fuller and longer after just one coat.

Smooch Cosmetics blush which I have been using pretty much continuously since I got it and it fast became my go to Spring blush. You can check out my full review here

My final favourite is a new foundation of mine which is Rimmel's Wake me up which I now love, you can find my full review here

Soap & Glory The Fill Monty

I have bought my my very first wrinkle cream that's it I am getting old I mean I am already getting grey hairs that I have to cover up (I blame Thomas entirely for this) so it is inevitable that someday soon I will notice a tiny little lines forming across my face. Although I do hope that I take after my mum as I don't actually think she has any wrinkles.

I thought it would be best to start using a wrinkle product now to try and keep them at bay as I imagine that is easier than filling them in when your face does eventually start to crack. After browsing wrinkle creams for a while and still not knowing much about them or if they would even work I decided to go for a Soap and Glory product as I have loved pretty much every product of theirs I have used so far. Plus I will be honest I was drawn to the packaging and it was on a 3 for 2 offer.


The Full Monty wrinkle cream comes in a little glass pot and I thought hmm you don't get much for your money in this little pot but you actually do as you only need a little amount which you dab on areas you want to keep wrinkles at bay such as around your eyes and forehead.




As you can see its a white cream which goes on clear and you are suppose to apply it after your have applied moisturiser and make up but I just do it after my moisturiser and before make up. I have noticed a little difference on my frown lines at the top of my nose so I will keep using it in the hope they these don't turn in to full on wrinkles.

This isn't going to be some miracle cure as I don't think they actually exist but it may help you keep wrinkles at bay for a little while longer.

Have you tried this? What have you thought?

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation Review

A while back you may remember I review the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation well when that ran out recently I was all set for buying it again but could I find it anywhere, no I couldn't every Rimmel stand I found just seemed to stock the darkest shade. So I decided to finally purchase the wake me up foundation which I was pondering about buying last time but I went for the Match perfection instead.


My first impressions of the Wake me up foundation was that the shade range isn't brilliant. If you are really pale then this foundation isn't going to be for you. The lightest shade that I found is only just light enough for me, I have to use a small amount and really buff it in to my skin otherwise it leaves me looking orange which wouldn't be a good look.

I do really like this foundation it gives a bit more of a coverage than the Match Perfection which just recently with my chin constantly breaking out I have needed. I love that the foundation gives you a nice dewy, glowing lookwhich I like for this time of the year but you don't look too oily with it.

MUA Mega Volume Mascara Review

I am a bit of a mascara fiend I have lots in my collection from pretty much all the highstreet brands and I have found in the past the cheapest normally turnout to be the best. So I decided to try out the MUA Mega Volume mascara as I have been impressed by every product of theirs I have tried.


This mascara is just £3 so I wasn't expecting it to be the best but I was a little disappointed with it. It is quite a dry mascara which I don't like as I don't actually feel like I am putting any product on my eyelashes however after a few applications you can build it up and it does make your eyelashes look fuller but it doesn't go clumpy. Unfortunately it isn't a favourite of mine but I have found it is perfect for my lower lashes as I would rather use a dryer mascara as I make so much mess otherwise. So I am happy I have found a use for it so it wont be wasted.

Have you used any MUA mascaras? What did you think? I would like to try the others but I think I will only try them if I hear good things about them.

New Cid I-Flick Review*

First thing's first I will admit I am rubbish with eyeliner yeah I can apply it to my waterline but ask me to do apply it just above the lash line and I make a complete mess. I have tried quite a few different types of eyeliner the normal pencil eyeliner, felt tip type eyeliners and the normal liquid eyeliner with the thin tip yet I still haven't mastered them.


The thing I love about this eyeliner is that it is a both a pencil eyeliner and liquid liner. The pencil end is retractable and its very soft so it just glides on there is no snagging or pulling on delicate areas like your water line and gives a great dark black line. You can also smudge this product quite easily when you are using it around your lash line for a quick and easy smokey line.


The liquid liner end is quite fine so you can create a fine line but you can also thicken the line up too which I think is handy. The tip isn't flimsy which is perfect for a novice like me I find when the tip is flimsy it makes applying the eyeliner even more difficult. Once you have applied the eyeliner it doesn't budge no matter how hard you rub at it which will be perfect for nights out. Not that I have them anymore.



I thought I would include a swatch photo for you just so if you can see the effects both ends gives I pressed on a little more for the liquid line you can achieve a finer line.

Overall I found this eyeliner to be a lot easier to use than others I have tried but I still need a lot more practice with it. If you want to give this a go for yourself you can purchase it from the Hairtrade website

Smooch Cosmetics*

I have never tried any products by smooch before and had heard very little about them as I don't think you can actually pick them up from anywhere on the high street I think they are only available on their website, so I was looking forward to trying them out and seeing what they were like.


First of all I tried the duo blush in the colour "Peachy" The blush isn't very highly pigmented but still looks really nice and gives a lovely hint of colour and shimmer to you cheeks and also highlights so you don't need to bother using separate highlighting products. I can see this subtle blush becoming my go to blush for the Spring (Whenever spring decides to show itself)



I have probably mentioned time and time again on my blog that I am not a bright lip person at all, they scare me. So when I picked this shade of lipstick I was kinda worried in case it came and was a really highly pigmented and bright lipstick. I was so pleased when I first tried it and it wasn't which others may not like but I love. I got the shade "Sweet tooth"


Hopefully you can see by the swatch that it is a subtle pink and adds a nice sheen to your lips. I think I would describe it as a my lips but better colour. It isn't a particularly long lasting lip stick so maybe not great for nights out.


The third product I tried was the duo eye shadow in "Dare to bare" are my perfect shades I only ever wear neutral eye shadow colours (From writing this post I have realised I am not adventurous at all with make up) I love this little duo the colours look lovely together and it is perfect for creating a quick basic smokey eye and would be perfect for traveling as it will take up no space at all in your make up bag. 


I really hope Smooch come to the high street soon as I am normally put off by purchasing make up online as I like to swatch products first to make sure they are the right shades for me as some make up products can be a bit hit and miss colourwise.

Have you tried any Smooch Cosmetics before? What did you think?

Mother's Day Gift Ideas - Seascape*

Hopefully you will have read my first post on some Seascape products that I was testing out with Thomas. Well it's time to talk about some products that I have been enjoying using. Now I don't get much time for pampering since having Thomas I like to make sure when I do have the time for a pamper session that I use products that are a little bit more special than your everyday products.

Like I said in my first review the packaging from Seascape is lovely and superb quality. The body butter and the lip balm are in glass pots which in itself makes them feel like special products, something you would use when you are indulging in a pamper session.







The lip balm is quite a hard balm maybe more of a salve and it has a fresh peppermint flavour to it. After a few uses my lips feel supersoft and I have mostly been using it before bed applying quite a lot and then just leaving it to soak in my lips. Like I've already mentioned it is in a glass jar so not a product you could keep in your bag, but then again I don't think I would want to as it looks so much better on my bedside table.


The body cream is a luxurious thick cream the whole product including the glass pot just feels like a treat. For me this isn't an everyday cream as it is rather thick and doesn't dry that fast on your skin which I don't normally like but if you are having a pamper session then you will have plenty of spare time to allow the cream to sink in to your skin. This cream has a gorgeous relaxing lavender scent with ylang ylang and mandarin. Perfect for use before bed. It is made from ingredients such as Shea butter, rosehip seed oil, sweet almond oil and vitamin E which actually helps to reduce stretch marks, so guess where I have been focusing on with this?


The last item I have been trialing is the hand cream as soon as you apply this you are hit with the scent of lavender and lemongrass which is just lovely. Even though it is quite a thick hand cream it takes no time at all to soak in to your hands.


Unless you have been living under a rock you will know its Mother's Day coming up in a couple of weeks, the 10th March actually so if you have a mum who deserves to be spoilt she definitely deserves some treats from Seascape and they are totally affordable and you could even treat yourself whilst you are there.

John Frieda Smooth Start Review*


I don't know about you but the weather this time of year plays havoc with my hair it just constantly feels frizzy as soon as I venture outside my hair goes poof frizz ball.
I've had one or two products before from the John Frieda Frizz-Ease range but I've never actually tried any of the shampoos before so I was looking forward to trying them out.

First things first the smell of these two products is so nice and fresh smelling. The texture of both the shampoo and conditioner is feel thick it feels like it's going to actually do something to your hair. You don't need to use much of the conditioner either, with some I've used in the past I've had to use lots of conditioner for it to actually make my hair feel softer.  In the past I was so bad with using conditioners I hardly ever use to bother but lately my hairs changed and I have to use a conditioner now or else I can even get a comb through my hair after washing it and this works a treat.

After washing my hair but before styling I use one pump of the oil and rub it between my hands and then run it through my hair and then dry and style as normal but you can also use the oil on dry hair too if you need to tame any fly always.

My hair definitely feels in better condition after using these three products together but it still feels like it has a bit of life in it and not weighed down. My hair also looks a lot less frizzy although I'm afraid to say the effects of the oil isn't long lasting and later on in the day my hair starts to frizz a little but I can add a little more oil if needed without worrying that my hair will look greasy.

Have you tried any of the John Frieda range before? I'm particularly interested if you have used the three day straight product because I think once my spending ban is over I will be testing that out.j

Real Techniques Brush Collection

I had been wanting to try out Real Technique brushes for so long but at the time I was suppose to be spending all my spare money on Christmas presents so I asked my mum for the Core Collection for Christmas and what over the moon when she got them for me.
I've never really bothered with good quality brushes before but I can definitely tell the difference when I use these compared to when I used my old cheaper brushes.


The set contains a buffing brush, a contour brush, a foundation brush and a detailer brush. The first two brushes I use for what they are suppose to be used for and they work perfectly especially the buffing brush I have noticed a huge difference when I use this to buff in my foundation and it leaves my skin looking great.
The foundation brush I find works better for applying concealer especially around my eyes. I don't normally like using this sort of brush for foundation I had a similar brush from ELF and really didn't think it applied foundation very well.
The detailer brush can be used for concealer or lips but I use this when applying eyeshadow close to the lash line and find it works really well.


With some of the money I got for Christmas I treated myself to the Blush Brush and again I love it. The brush is so soft and works perfectly.


I absolutely love these brushes from the colour and design of them to the fact they are great quality for money I use these every day and I have washed them a few times since I go them and have had no shedding which is brilliant. Cheaper brushes that I have had in the past shed so bad but these are still as good as the day I first bought them. Since having these I have thrown away all of the similar brushes I had in my collection and one day I hope to have the full collection of them.  I will definitely be buying more of these when my spending ban is up in April.

Are you a Real Techniques lover? Which is your favourite brush?

Seascape Les Petits Review*

The Les Petits range from Seascape has been specially formulated for babies and children who have sensitive skin they are mild enough to use everyday without causing any irritation and there aren't any parabens, silicone, petroleum or sulphates so you aren't using any nasties on your child's skin. They contain essential oils which are safe for babies and they smell lovely too but not too overpowering as I don't like Thomas to be too heavily scented.


I absolutely love the packaging for these products I know they aren't very child friendly but they are mummy friendly and I don't mind having them on my bathroom shelf.


Firstly the bubble bath has a gorgeous scent of chamomile and lavender which is to soothe the skin and calm and relax  your baby, I will admit I have also used this myself and it is lovely and definitely is relaxing if you are taking a bath before bed. A little of this bubble bath goes a long way the scent fills your bathroom and creates a nice amount of bubbles for your little one to play with.

The body lotion goes perfectly with the bubble bath which the same fragrance but with added Shea butter and olive oil to moisturise your baby's skin, it also contains jersey beeswax to lock in moisture which is brilliant if your little one has dry skin it instantly feels softer. Again a little of this goes a long way and the lotion isn't too thick that it takes ages to soak in which is perfect when you have a wriggly baby they wont sit still long enough to dry off.

Both of these products retail for £12 for a 300ml bottle and can be purchased here

Yummy Mummy- Hask Hair Treatments*

A couple of months back I did a post about a Hask hair Argan oil I had tried after spotting it Primark(here) and the post had been seen by Hask and I was asked if I would like to try some more of their products to see how I get on with those as I was impressed by their Argan oil.


The first I tried was Natural Essentials Leave-in Instant Conditioning Treatment. The instructions are to apply straight to wet hair and then dry and style as normal now on this one it doesn't actually advise you on how much you should be using in one go. Seems like a bit of a silly point to make but when the other treatments advise you to us a coin sized amount with this one I didn't really know how much to use. In the end I used about a quarter of the tube, it's a water based liquid so doesn't sit as heavy on your hair as oil. When I had dried my hair it felt a lot smoother and less frizzy but it didn't feel weighed down. My only problem with this is that I had to wash my hair again a lot sooner than what I normally do which I normally find with any type of leave in conditioner.

Macadamia Oil Exotic Shine Treatment first things first this smells soooo good and my hair smelled so good for ages after using. Like all of the oils they can be used on either wet or dry hair and have tried it both ways and really like it, it keeps my hair frizz free but I'm not sure if it does anything different to the Argan Oil but it's still a nice product if you can get your hands on it.
 
The 3 sachets are all deep conditioning treatments which I have been able to get 2 treatments out of each packet which is pretty good and they all smell yummy but more importantly they left my hair feeling so soft and looking really shiny and my hair feels so much better for them. If you ever spot any more of Hask's products in Primark I would recommend you grab a couple to try them out.

Vintage Rosehip Face Wash Review

Bomb Cosmetics is a new brand to me, I have never seen it in shops before and i'm pretty sure I haven't seen any blog talking about it either so I was interested to see what it would be like. I don't normally buy products that I haven't heard anything about but I was drawn to this product for a number of reasons.

Firstly how cute is the packaging? It looks lovely in my bathroom (Bit of a shallow reason)
Secondly it smells lovely obviously of Rosehip but it is a lovely fresh scent but not too strong as I don't like using strong smelling scents on my face.
Thirdly I like that it is a gel instead of a liquid so you don't really need to use a lot of it. 

 With this gel you only need about a grape sized amount and you just rub it on you face and then it starts to foam up. It leaves my skin feeling super soft and it is really good at getting my make up off and also does a good job of removing most of my eye make up too. I have used this lots of times now but if you look at it, it looks like I have hardly used any so I think it will last me quite a while too. For £7.99 I think this is really good value for money I would definitely recommend you try this product if you are looking for a new face wash

THX Make It Big Hot Air Styler Review

Let me introduce to you the best hair tool ever to touch my hair! I gave my hubby a list of items to choice for me for Christmas and I am absolutely over the moon he picked this. I put the Make it big hot air styler on my list after seeing Miss Budget Beautys Gift guide - for her I had been wanting the Babyliss version of this for ages but after hearing this was a good alternative and less than half the price I put this on my Christmas list.


The beauty of this is that you can give yourself an easy at home blow dry with out having to mess about with a hairdryer and barrel brush. The hot air blows through the bristles so it drys and styles your hair at the same time meaning you cut down the time it takes to do you hair (Perfect for us mums who don't get that much time to get ready anymore) If like me you wear your hair straight you don't need to dry your hair and then straighten it after as this hair styler leaves your hair looking straight. Also it adds volume to your hair so that it doesn't just look limp against your head.

The Styler can be used on wet or damp hair. I find it is easier to use on towel dried hair. I section my hair horizontally and do it in about 4 sections starting with the hair closest to the nape of your neck. I find it much easier to do small sections of hair at a time, don't use big clumps of hair at once as obviously you will have to go over it numerous amounts of time before your hair drys. When using this I curl my hair under at the ends and it is so easy to do and looks really nice. You can also use the styler to flick your hair out or curl all over. I can't wait to try curling it all over but I think I need my hair to grow a lot longer than it is first because the barrel is pretty big so I wouldn't be able to really curl my hair over it very well.



As you can see the styler has 2 different heat settings as well as a cool shot setting with helps to set your hair. The green button is for removing the barrel so that you can clean any hairs away so that it doesn't get clogged up.

The only difference between this and the Babyliss Big hair I think it that the barrel on this doesn't rotate which to be honest I don't think it really matters, this is so easy to use and it doesn't give you arm ache.

I absolutely love this, I haven't used my normal hair dryer or straighteners since I got it, in fact I've stored them away somewhere now. Another great point about this is that it's brilliant for traveling too as you don't need to take away a hair dryer and straighteners just take this in your case.

This little beauty costs just £16.50 and is exclusive to Tesco so you can purchase it here

Cussons Mum & Me Review




I wanted to share with you 2 products Thomas and I have been using recently and thought I may as well do a blog post on them both at the same time.

Baby Emollient Bath Wash.
As you may know if you have been following my blog for a while Thomas has baby eczema although it has gone for the time being and we haven't had problems for a while I want to keep on top of it in case he does have any flare ups. So I like to do a bit of research on products I will be using on him.
This Emollient is made from mild emollients and almond oil which is great for babies with dry skin or eczema. It is also fragrance free which as you know I don't like fragranced baby products as I don't think there is any need for them.
We add it in to every bath and this product has really helped to keep Thomas's skin feeling soft. You don't need lots of it either so for the price I think it is great value for money.

Bump Relax and Unwind Sleep Mist*
I love this product, yes I know it says it is for bump but us mummies can use and enjoy it too. It is a lovely calming lavender and chamomile mist which you spray around your bed area before going to sleep and it helps to settle you off. I love to use this after a nice hot bath as something extra to get me to sleep quicker. I will definitely be recommending this to my newly pregnant friend as she will soon find out she needs all the help she can get in the sleeping department as the pregnancy goes on.

Yummy Mummy - Updated Everyday Make Up

I thought as it is a New Year I would do an updated post on my everyday make up if you saw my first post back in September (My everyday face) You will see everything has changed. These are the products that I reach for every day now.


I am really loving my Naked palette again recently it is just so easy to work with and you can use this for any occasion day or night. The colours are just lovely, I have looked in to the Naked 2 and the recent Basics palette that Urban Decay have bought out but at the minute I just can't justify spending that much money on them when I still have this palette maybe if this ever runs out I may try the Naked 2

My foundation has changed too since the last post. I use to wear the Collection Perfect Finish but I don't know what happened with it, it sort of stopped working with my skin and just started too look really crappy so I decided to change. It was a bit of a toss up whether to get this Rimmel Match perfection or the Wake Me Up foundation but I swayed more to this one even though I hadn't heard much about it and I love it. I did a full review on it here At the minute I am pretty likely to repurchase this one when I run out or I may go for the Wake Me Up next time to give that a go.

My concealer hasn't changed I am still using the Collection Lasting Perfection. I love, love, love this I am now on my 3rd tube of it and I can't see me changing it any time soon. For the price which is £4.99 I think it is brilliant.

I picked up a new mascara a while back as I threw out a couple of mine as they were past their best so I decided to get Maybelline's Volum' Express. I love Maybelline's mascaras and this one is no different. It is probably one of my favourites to date. It makes my eyelashes look much longer but without making them clumpy or spider looking.

On my lips my go to product is still a Revlon but it has changed from the Lip butters to the Just Bitten Kissable. This is the only colour that really does it for me from Revlon and you can see my full review of it which I did here I do love this type of product so I'm looking to try them from other brands. I really wanted the Ted Baker tin set of 4 but unfortunately it had sold out on the boots website.

On my cheeks for my day to day blush and highlight I use is a blush from Rimmel which I actually got from B&M and it was only £1.99 so I don't know whether it is a discontinued product or not but I love it. It is in the shade 003 Autumn Catwalk and I think it really suits my colouring it adds a nice bit of colour to my cheeks without being too over powering. The next product I use is a product from No7 and it is called a bronzer  but as you can see in the photo there is only 2 bronzer shades the others are highlighters so I stick to the lighter end and maybe I will start using the bronzing colours in the summer.

Finally my new loves Real Technique brushes. My mum got me the Core Collection for Christmas and I am so thankful. I have never had decent brushes before so I am loving these and they are pretty affordable. I will stop it there about these brushes as I think they are worthy of a full post all on their own so I will get that done soon for you.

No7 Beautiful Skin Gift Set Review.

This was one of my sale purchases this year. I didn't spend a lot in the sales this year mainly as I can't afford and my Christmas money has had to go on car tax how absolutely rubbish is that? So when I went in to Boots I thought I would treat myself to this it was reduced from £16 to £8. I'm thinking next year I am going to ask everybody for Boots vouchers as their sale is so good. Plus that was I wont have to spend my vouchers on boring stuff anyway I digress.


I got this mainly as I have been wanting to try out the No7 Hot Cloth Cleanser to see how it compares to the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish as it is cheaper. I have been using this for a couple of weeks now and I must say I actually prefer it to the Liz Earle. It actually leaves my skin feeling better and it feels a lot more moisturised after using this. I found the Liz Earle actually dried my skin out a little.

I use the cleanser mainly in the mornings to be honest as I feel it wakes my skin up, I then follow it with the Beautiful skin day cream. It has been working great on my skin helping it to get back to normal as my skin has been feeling really dry over the past month or so due to the cold weather so using this along with the night cream has definitely been helping.

The final product in this pack is the eye make up remover, I'm afraid this product was a bit of a let down for me. I will admit I'm not normally a fan of products like this as I find them far too oily for my liking and this was the same. It also left my eyes with a really horrible sort of residue on them. Definitely not nice, I'd keep away from this product if you have sensitive eyes.

Yummy Mummy - Fudge Salt Spray Review*



I had been wanting to try a salt spray for a while as I had heard good things about them and I wanted to try the beachy sort of bed head type look so when I got this from HairTrade I was looking forward to testing it out. Hairtrade.com is one of the UK's leading online retailers of hair extensions hair care and beauty products.

So the instructions on this product is to apply to the roots of wet hair and scrunch and then work through the lengths of the hair and allow your hair to dry naturally.  I found using the product this way did nothing to my hair, it just left my roots feeling crispy like I had just sprayed hair spray on them.
I found the best way to use this product was to spray on to my roots when damp as it stated but then I dried my hair upside down using my hair dryer and I found that it gave my hair more volume and a slight beachy look. Overall I'm afraid to say that this product didn't quite live up to my expectations, I don't know whether it is because I didn't use it right or it just doesn't suit my hair. However it did give my hair more volume so it's good for that.

You can find this product on the Hairtrade website here for just £7.00 which is cheaper that most places on the internet.

Yummy Mummy - Mini MUA Haul & Review

I do love a bit of MUA occasionally with super cheap prices it's a brand that everybody should try out. I have been after these 3 products for a while


I have heard quite a good good things about MUA's eye shadow primer. I've never been one for using eyeshadow primer, I suppose it's because I haven't had a good one before so they never worked for me so I just thought they it a bit of a pointless product.
I do notice a difference to how long my eye shadow lasts when I use it. I still don't think this is a product that I would bother with everyday but I would definitely use it if I was going out in the evening.



A few months ago I posted a review of MUA's Pink Sorbet eye shadow trio which I love. I don't know why I didn't get this trio at the same time but I have been wanting it for months but it was never in stock in my local Superdrug and I didn't really want to order just this from the website. So I was happy it was back in stock. I love this, the colours are lovely and they have a really good pigment to them. It's great for £2.50
I might do a separate review post on the nail constellations as I am thinking of wearing that on one or 2 of my nails for my Christmas party.

MUA have also recently bought out some make up brushes, have any of you got your hands on them yet? I would love to know what they are like

Yummy Mummy - Barry M Gold Mine

Let me start by saying I absolutely love Barry M nail paint for the price which is £2.99 the quality is brilliant forget more expensive brands like Nails Inc which chips within minutes even with a top coat, Barry M's staying power is brilliant and usually it doesn't take loads of coats to get a good colour.

I picked this colour up recently as I thought it was a great colour for the party season. It only takes 2 coats to get a really good and full coverage on your nail.
The one thing I am not looking forward to is when the time comes to remove it, I hate trying to take off glitter varnishes.
