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.

Hi Beauties

I’m sorry I’ve been away for a while I’ve been in hospital with pneumonia, but it’s getting better now which is good.

So comment below or tweet me @vpoint and I’ll give you what you want 🙂

My polish Wish list for February will be up by the end of the week, can you recommend any of your faves I’ll love too?

Tagged: You’re It

Hi Beauties

I was tagged (or more like I asked to borrow the questions :)) by the lovely Harriet from Harriets Beauty Box , it’s an amazing blog so sophisticated and professional, love it and I really recommend you check it out.

So here goes question one…

1) Is your hair naturally straight or curly?

I’d say norther, my hair is plain frizzy even when I’ve straightened it it’s still untameable, if anyone can recommend any good anti frizz products it’d be much appreciated.

2) Do you dye it yourself or go to the salon?

I tend to dye my own hair, a) a salon is way too expensive and b) I’m getting quite good at doing it myself, (note to self ‘buy hair dye’.)

3) Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you switch it up?

In all honesty it depends where I am and what I’m doing if I’m at work I wear my hair up, it’s just easier but if and when I’m off work I’ll style my hair depending on my mood.

4) Do your own mani/pedi or go to the salon?

Lol no, again way too expensive for me, and with the amount of polish I own there’s no need for a salon, I love doing my own mani’s I find it very relaxing, I don’t do pedi’s I HATE my feet.

5) How often do you change your nail polish

I used to change my polish three to four times a week, now I’m working I don’t really have time to paint my nails which is sad, so I change it up once or twice a week.

6) Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
Never ever

7) How long does it take for you to put your makeup on?
About 15 minutes I only really wear eye makeup and maybe lipstick or gloss, I hate the feeling of foundation on my skin.

8) What do you do first face or eyes?

I’d have to say eyes, obviously since I don’t really do my face, I love s darker eye with a nude or Rose pink lip, I think it looks lovely.

9) Do you collect makeup or just buy it?
I guess a bit of both, I buy makeup to wear it and really don’t, so then does it become a collection? 🙂

10) How often do you wear false eyelashes?

Never, I find them fiddly to apply and most of them just don’t suit me.

11) Do you do full face makeup everyday?

Very rarely, and if I do its for a night out or a special occasion, I try to have as many minimal to none makeup days as I can, I have really bad skin.

12) Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family?

Yes I do, I like to play around with new looks after all practice makes perfect.

13) Will you leave the house without makeup?

Yes I’m glad to say that now I will, if you’d have asked me ten years ago I’d have broken down crying, God I sound old 🙂

14) How many high end products do you own?

Does revlon count?, lol none ive been jobless for nearly a year but that’s all going to change very soon, at least I hope.

15) Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you get ready?

I try to plan my outfits the night before but I rarely stick to it and often just throw something on, I really don’t own that many clothes.

16) How often do you change your handbag?

It depends on what I’m doing, sometimes I really can’t be bothered with a big bag and just stick to my smaller quilted handbag, but it really depends on the situation.

17) What time do you wake up and go to sleep?

On a weekday I wake up at around 6ish and go to sleep and around 10ish, again age Is kicking in, 🙂

18) How often or when do you work out?

I aim to workout around two to four times a week, but especially in winter I get CBA syndrome and it rarely happens.

19) Left or right handed?
Left 🙂

20) Do you speak any foreign languages?

Not anymore, I used to love speaking Italian when I was in high school it was one of my favourite subjects.

21) How tall are you?
5’1 😦

22) How many pets do you have?

None, I’d love a sausage dog or a chinchilla.

23) How often do you blog?

I used to blog daily, but now I’ve started work again I aim to bring my Beauties content at least two to three times a week.

24) Do you read comments?

Yes I do and I try to answer each and everyone of them, I love it when my Beauties takes time to read and comment on my blog, it really does mean the world to me.

25) Do you keep a list of products to try that you see in a post?

Yes I keep a list in my phone, it’s mainly for nail polish but I’m branching out more into makeup and other beauty products, I love seeing what other people are using.

26) How did you come up with your blog name?

I don’t really know, I guess it’s a polish blog so varnishing point 10, your finger nails are the 10 points on which you put varnish??? I really don’t know, I just wanted something a little more creative.

27 ) What kind of camera do you use for your photos?

My iPhone 5c it’s not perfect but than again neither am I.

28) How often do you clean your house?

I try and do little bits and prices everyday that way it doesn’t become over whelming.

29) What’s your favourite colour?

Red, pink or emerald green their such pretty colour, and most of the polishes in my collection fall under one of these colours.

30) Do you swear?

God yes, a lot lot more than I should, oops.

31) What are you doing for the rest of the day?

I’m going to have another cup of coffee and get ready for work.

I hope you all enjoyed this post Beauties, I tag all who want to do it. They’ll be more reviews, likes and hopefully collection updates coming soon, thanks for reading.

To Try: Rimmel Lips

Hi Beauties

As most of you know when it comes to makeup I’m an eye shadow, liner. Mascara junkie, so for this post I thought I’d mix things up by telling you a bit about my favourite lip products from Rimmel, I buy quite a few lipsticks, balms and glosses which rarely get used, the products in this post are things that I’ve been wanting to try for quite some time,

Here goes…

The first two things are from the Apocolips range, I have two of the Apocalips Lip Lacquers already and I really like them, their so pigmented and not sticky I HATE sticky gloss. ‘Atomic Rose’ and ‘Meteoric Matte’ are from the Rimmel’s Apocalips Velvet range. ‘Atomic Rose’ is a dusky shade which has a very vintage feel to it and would match my skin tone perfectly. ‘Meteoric Matte’ is a very deep red shade that still manages to be a true red, I have a feeling that once this has been applied it might make me look a little washed out, but if I paired it with a nude eye look I could get away with it. A huge thank you to Beauty dream machine for the lovely swatches.

2015/01/img_4367.jpg

2015/01/img_4365.jpg

The next lip product is one of Rimmel’s ‘Lasting Finish Colour Rush Balms’, my favourite is in the shade ‘Make Me Blush’, like ‘Atomic Rose’ it’s another deeper pink shade (I must have a thing for them’. Rimmel’s ‘Colour Rush Balms’ are more like a pencil than the traditional stick applicator, which I find much easier to apply, I can get a precise shape and even colour.

2015/01/img_4368.jpg

2015/01/img_4369.jpg

Then there’s the lipsticks, Rimmel’s ‘Moisture Renew Lipstick’ to be precise, again I own quite a few of these but they never get worn, I own various deep reds thinking I’ll be brave and wear them out but when push comes to shove I chicken out and in the draw my unused lipsticks remain.

‘Ringa Ringa Roses’ is another pink shade but it is slightly more blue toned than ‘Make Me Blush’ and ‘Atomic Pink’ this means it will be more vibrant on the lips, in my opinion this shade would be perfect for transitioning from winter to spring.

2015/01/img_4370.jpg

The next lipstick I wish I was brave enough to try is ‘As You Want Victoria’ to me this colour is a very classic one, this lipstick brings to mind the black and white 1950’s murder mystery. In 2015 this colour is still one that for most of us is very wearable and would be the perfect way to add a touch of vintage class to any outfit.

2015/01/img_4373.jpg

And finally Rimmel’s ‘Sloanes Plum’ is another favourite of mine which I don’t quite have the confidence to wear yet. ‘Sloanes Plum’ is a very deep purple based red, which to me adds a very gothic- Victorian edge to an outfit, I think it’s my favourite out of them all and I’m determined to wear it out one of these days.

Thanks for reading Beauties and please tell me what you think about my shift from nails, does it work or not?.

MUA: Things I’d Love To Try

Hi Beauties

I know I’ve been away for a while but my life has been kind of hectic recently, money and job worries mainly.

So in order to tackle these issues I decided to go to a local shopping centre with a PILE of CVs, whilst I was looking for work their were a few products from the MUA range that caught my eye.

The first item was the ‘Romantic Efflorescence Palette’, I was particularly drawn to the stunning shades of purple this palette holds, one is deeper toned than the other which will be perfect for a sultry night look, or a could wear both for an ombré eye look. The palette also sports some very wearable neutral toned shades, which I like to wear on those no-makeup- makeup days.

2015/01/img_4352.jpg

The second product is another eye shadow palette, this time it’s the ‘MUA Luxe Palette’ in ‘Mysterial. As you may or may not know I love rocking dark, vampy eye looks even in the daytime. I love the fact that this palette is metallic as it gives you a more dress up kind of look. I was also drawn to this palette because I think the contrast between the deep metallic black and the creamy pink shade would work beautifully on the eye.

2015/01/img_4353.jpg

Each time I go to the MUA web store I spend time drooling over this nail polish, ‘Honey Shine’ is a stunning shade, it’s a gold metallic with just a hint of a rose gold undertone. It’s a beautiful online exclusive and ‘Honey Shine’ will soon complete my MUA polish collection.

2015/01/img_4354.jpg

I love lip products and whilst I was browsing yesterday I managed to find the ‘Lip Switch Duos’, I tested all of them (at least I think I did), but only really liked three of them.

‘Crimson Ruby’ is more of a true red it’s the only one I found with the lipstick and a clear gloss as opposed to a coloured one. ‘Crimson Ruby’ did make me look a little washed out but I’ll find a way to make it work.
The next ‘Lip Switch Duo’ is ‘Coral Pink’ and it suits my skin tone beautifully, it’s not too bright and is just a few shades darker than my natural lip colour so it isn’t too ‘in your face’.
The third Is called ”Persian Plum’ I think it would work well with any skin tone, unlike ‘Crimson Ruby’ this one is more of a blue based red, which works beautifully with my skin tone and hair colour and doesn’t make me look washed out, if you wear this shade you’ll defiantly get noticed.

I hope you all enjoyed this post my beauties, all of the images are from the MUA web store, go check them out their products are fantastic and super super cheap, love them.:)

Winter Essentials 2014 Tag

Hi Beauties

I don’t normally do tags, but it’s Christmas so this time I thought why not?😚, I was tagged by the lovely The World Of Cos you can check out her Winter Essentials 2014 Tag here 🙂.

So let’s get started…

1) What is your ultimate party season lip product?

Now this is a tough one, but I’d have to say MUA’s Lipstick in ‘Wild Berry’, it’s my perfect winter shade, it’s a blue based red that goes beautifully with my skin tone, it’s a shimmer finish which means it isn’t too drying on my lips and is super cheap at only £1.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4152.jpg

2) What is your winter Essential Product?

I’d have to say my ultimate product for winter, the one I never leave the house without Is my hand cream, my hands get so dry during the winter months, my go to hand cream this year is Doves ‘Indulgent Nourishing Hand Cream with Shea Butter’. It works so well it makes my skin super soft, it doesn’t smell funny and it doesn’t feel greasy on my skin either, I love this stuff.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4153.jpg

3) What are you most hoping to see under the Christmas Tree?

I’ve had my eye on a beautiful ruby ring for quite sometime so I’m hoping to find it under the tree this year, but If not I suppose there’s always my birthday.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4154.jpg

4) Name one beauty essential that is never missing from your bag during colder months

Another beauty product I never leave the house without in the winter months are my ‘Applelicious Glossy Lip Balms’ by NYC, I currently have two of them ‘ Apple Blossom’ and ‘Apple Blueberry Pie’ they are so lovely they leave my lips so soft and hydrated and they have a super lovely scent to them as well, I’d defiantly recommend them.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4155.jpg

5) What are your winter weather skincare saviors?

For this question I only have one product as my skin doesn’t really change all that much in the winter. My chosen product is the ‘Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Mask and Wash’ from Neutrogena. I love this stuff it works perfectly well as a wash, taking away dead skin cells, getting rid of makeup and oils, but if I want a deeper clean the face mask really does the job, I leave it on for 15 minutes and when I take it off my skin feels lovely and soft and looks sparkling clean.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4156.png

6) What is winter going to smell like this year?

I rarely drink but I have a soft spot for ‘Southern Comfort Cherry’, I love ‘Southern Comfort’ and cherries on their own, so when my boyfriend bought me ‘Cherry Southern Comfort’ I was in heaven I could wait until Christmas Day and had to open it their and then :).

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4157.jpg

7) Is the Berry eye the new Berry lip?

No, I love berry lips there’s something so classy and elegant about them, in my opinion berry lips will never go out of style and berry eyes? I don’t think they’ll stick around for long.

8) What are you greatest winter indulgences?

Mmm this is a tricky one, I’d have to say run balls are one of my fave treats that I can only seem to find in shops at Christmas time, I can literally sit and eat and entire packet, lucky for me their super cheap and ultra delicious.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4158.jpg

9) Lush Christmas? Your top pick?

I don’t really use Lush products, but I’ve seen some of my Beauties blogging bout them and it’s got me wanting to try the Christmas Kisses’ bubble bar, I think I’m drawn to this one most of all because it looks like a huge Hershey’s kiss, and I’m a sucker for Hershey’s chocolate.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4261.jpg

10) Name one (or more) random winter essential.

My final winter essential has to be my ‘Glorious Mud’ face mask, it’s a clay based face mask and does wonders to my pores, I love applying it whilst in a nice relaxing bubble bath with candles burning and a good book.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4159.jpg
