Winter Essentials 2014 Tag

Hi Beauties

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 :).

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.

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.

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.

Nail Polish Q&A

Hi Beauties,

Here’s another nail polish tag, I took the questions for several different places on the net, I thought I’d make my own from them.

1) How many nail polishes do you own? I think I own are 130 beautiful bottles at the moment, I’d say it’s quite a small collection compared to other nail bloggers and you tubers.

2) Your favourite nail polish brand? my all time favourite nail polish brand has got to be Revlon. They have such a fantastic formula, it’s quick drying, applies well and stays on for at least a week without chipping. Revlon also has a lovely colour range that has a shade for any season, mood or occasion.

3) What are your top three nail polishes? my three faves have to be Revlon’s ‘rain forest’ which is a beautiful deep green with gold micro glitter.

The second has to be sinful colors sugar sugar, which is a beautiful sophisticated deep red with a beautiful shimmery finish.

The third has to be Rimmel’s English Rose which is a beautiful vintage pink shade.

4) Which is your most disappointing polish? And why? my most disappointing polish has to by ‘Cotton Candy’ from beauty uk, it goes on sheer, takes forever to dry and chips like crazy, it’s awful and I would not recommend it, not at all.

5) What is your favourite polish finish?
I love matte black polish or gloss polishes in any other colour, so over
all I think my favourite finish is gloss.

5) What polish colour do you own the most of? I think I own the most reds followed closely by pinks

6) What is your least favourite polish? my least fave polish has to be the diamond strength collection from Sally Hansen, they were sheer, they didn’t apply well, they took a very very long time to dry and if you don’t wear a base coat they stain your nails.

So there it is my lovelies, I hope you enjoyed reading through my answers and feel free to answer them in your own way.
