For Sale

Hi Beauties 

This is just a quick post to say that I will be selling most of my nail polish collection and some of my jewellery collection. 

I will post pics and prices tomorrow, who’s interested?, nothing will be going for an extortionate price as I want most things gone, first come first serve.

Affordable Mini Makeup Haul

Hi Beauties

I hope your all well, I’m feeling the best I have in along time, plus it was pay day on Monday so I decided to get some much needed new makeup.

When it comes to makeup I’m a bargine hunter, I find cheaper brands tend to work best for me, so sadly girls they’ll be no Mac here, (I’d love to try it out and see what all the hype is about, maybe mext month).

My first new product is the ‘Romantic Efflorescence’ palette from MUA, like I need another palette, but the shades are amazing, it’s filled with beautifully vintage shades that look stunning on the eye.





My camera really doesn’t do this palette justice, but I’ll be doing another post on the palette complete with swatches very soon. I think this palette is one that will be well loved and a definite repurchase.

My second purchase is a beautiful eye pencil from Essence, a lesser known makeup brand that now has a range in my town, yay. The retractable long lasting eye pencil in ‘I Have A Green’ is such a stunning shade, it glides on beautifully, it’s super pigmented and stays put all day.



As this pencil was only £1.99, I definitely recommend this eyeliner to anyone who is looking for an expensive and unquie eye look without the price tag to match. 

The ‘Amazing Volume Mascara’ from Makeup Revolution has recently become my go to mascara, it has a rich colour and beautiful formula that doesn’t make your lashes look clumpy or dried out.





Although it makes my lashes look long and luxurious, the only down side to this product is that it dries out super quickly, but overall it’s a lovely product that I’d highly recommend.

My finale product is a face powder in shade number 1 from the brand 2True ( exclusive to superdrug), overall the brand is not one I’m fond of I find the foundation cakey and thick and the eyeshadows are crumbly and sheer, but for some reason I love their powders. This shade suits my skin tone perfectly and finshes any makeup look beautifully.



This powder is one I’d repurchase, no questions asked.

Thank you so much for reading beauties. I’m sorry about the lack of quality photos, I’m afraid my photography skills need some work.

Until next time…

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,

I Want Essence

Hi Beauties

I hope you are all doing well, right now I’m so so bored so I’m posting to keep myself entertained.

I’m considering buying essence nail polish, I’ve read some reviews and watched some YouTube videos and they seem great, very pigmented and cheap, so here are the polishes from essence I want in my collection.

The first is ‘Precious Peacock’ which is a very beautiful emerald green colour, I defiantly want this colour for autumn.

IMG_3034.JPG

The second ‘essence’ polish I want is called ‘Columbus Circle Crimson’ it’s not as red or as dark as the name suggests, to me it is less crimson and more pillar box red.

IMG_3035.JPG

‘East Village’ is another lovely colour it is more blue toned than ‘Precious Peacock’ but it is still a deep rich colour, I think this polish would be more suited for spring or summer.

IMG_3036.JPG

‘Grernwich Village’ is a polish that you might expect to be well, green. Instead it’s a stunning summery hot pink colour, a definite polish want for spring of 2015.

IMG_3037.JPG

The fifth polish I want in my collection is called ‘Park Ave’ which for me is a stunning tree trunk brown shade that screams autumn, it’s also a very neutral colour so would be perfect for the office.

IMG_3038.JPG

‘Minted On Broadway’ is a very bright very summery mint blue shade, but at the same time it can also give a mani that icy winter look.

IMG_3039.JPG

Finally ‘Side walkers’ is a classic wintery grey shade, it’s a beautiful yet neutral shade which gives an effortless finish to any outfit.

Bold Baby Blues

Hi Beauties

I hope you are all doing well today, better than I am at least just when I thought I was better my cold comes back with a vengeance 😦 I don’t feel well at all.

Plus this morning I learnt that a great actor robin Williams has died, it just goes to show that money really can’t buy happiness, RIP my captain, my captain.

Since I’m feeling blue today I thought if share my fave baby blue polishes with you all.

The first is by Rimmel and is called ‘Too Cool To Tango’ it’s a beautiful sky blue, the kind of blue you see when there aren’t any clouds in the sky. ‘Too Cool To Tango’ is a polish that looks absorbable with a tan.

IMG_2582.JPG

The next polish I chose to feature in this post is Barry M’s ‘Pale Blue’. This shade is a lot more toned down than Rimmel’s ‘Too Cool To Tango’, it is a lot more muted, but still a very pretty pastel blue shade.

‘Cinderella’ by Sinful Colors really lives up to it’s name, it’s the perfect white based blue tone with flecks of silver micro glitter which give it that stunning fairy tale finish.

IMG_2359-0.JPG

‘Blueberry Muffin’ from Models Own, is again a more muted pastel shade, it’s a very white based blue tone and is perfect for the last of the summer manis.

IMG_2356.JPG

Although I’ve never tried a Butter London polish ‘Artful Dodger’ really caught my eye, this a more green based blue and the darker shade makes it the perfect spring to summer transition colour, maybe one for 2015.

IMG_2358.JPG

Finally ‘Blue Lagoon’ is a another stunning sky blue shade, although it’s not as bold as ‘Too Cool To Tango’ it’s still one of my go to summer polishes, Rimmel polishes are by far my fave, their formula is fantastic.

As you can probably tell I’m not much of a blue polish wearer, I have nails that love to soak up colour and blue polishes really do stain.

Excited For Essence

Hi Beauties,

A local store near my home has stated selling Essence cosmetics, this includes everything from eye make up to foundation, lip products and my favourite of all, nail polish. Although the display Is only small that have pretty good selection of make up and nail polish.

IMG_2541.JPG

Here are my favourite ‘Color and Go’ nail polish colours from what this pretty little Essence stand has to offer.

The first is called ‘Naughty and Pink’ and is a stunning bright pinky coral-y colour, it would look lovely with a tan.

IMG_2531.JPG

‘Hello marshmallow’ is a pretty white toned lilac perfect for a spring manicure.

IMG_2532.JPG

The third polish is called ‘Love Me Cupcake’ and is a nude with a slight hung of pink, this polish is just what you need to play down your look.

IMG_2533.PNG

‘Galatic Glam’ is a green polish complete with specks of sliver micro glitter that give this polish an out of this world shimmer.

IMG_2534.JPG

Again ‘Sweet As Candy’ is a very nude toned pink, it’s sheer and would look beautiful as the base of a French manicure.

IMG_2535.JPG

‘Free Hugs’ is a very vibrant Barbie pink, it’s fun, flirty and super girly.

IMG_2536.JPG

‘English Rose’ is another pretty vintage pink, I love this colour and can’t wait to have it on my nails.

IMG_2537.JPG

‘Do You Speak Love’ is a very classic ‘London bus red’, it’s not one of my favourite polishes from Essence but it’s fantastic for making the transition from summer to autumn.

IMG_2538.JPG

The ninth polish Is called ‘Prink and Proud’ is a very usual shade as it is a sliver polish with a purple-y undertone which in my opinion would make a very uniquely intreating manicure.

IMG_2539.JPG

Finally ‘Be Berry Now’ is another must have polish from me, it is the perfect shade of raspberry red and would look beautiful on a snowy day.

IMG_2540.JPG

Thanks for reading beauties, I might do other entries based on Essence cosmetics as I love their colour range, their quality is good and they are very reasonably priced.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,
