The colour and formula of this polish is fantastic.
I have to mention the 4 colours from what I presume is their summer collection. They all have a wonderful formula and the colours are bang on trend for this summer. I can’t emphasise strongly enough just how beautiful these are so go try them for yourself!!
Firstly, I picked up this beautiful vest top from Oasis. It is a gorgeous grey colour (although it is showing up more lilac on camera) with a scalloped edge. This is a beautiful light-weight vest in an unusual colour which I know I will get a lot of wear out of.
I then went in to the body shop to shop for a present for my friends birthday. I did pick up a present for her but I also treated myself! I picked up the Solid Oil for Lips as recommended by FleurdeForce. This is a very oily lip balm (stating the obvious I know). It really does nourish your lips however I don’t think that a lipstick would work on top due to the oily texture. It is definitely more of a lip balm to use on its own.
In The Body Shop I also picked up their Early-Harvest Raspberry Eau De Toilette. I don’t normally wear the body shop fragrances because they are so fruity and remind me of the kind of scents I used to wear as a teenager. However, this is simply divine. It really does smell of fresh raspberries and I just can’t keep smelling it. There is something very addictive about this scent.
I did also pick up another perfume! I picked up Britney Spears Island Fantasy. It was one of the offers at the till and it was £15 for 100ml!! Bargain!!! This is definitely a summer scent. It smells like a tropical cocktail with notes of coconut and pineapple. I would’t wear this of an evening but for a day at work it is perfect!
Clinton Cards had a fantastic offer on their Yankee Candles. I picked up a couple of their large jars for presents but for myself I picked up these two votives in Pink Hibiscus scent. This is a beautiful floral scent with hints of rose. These were 50% off so i couldn’t resist even though I have way too many candles at home!
The last things I picked up were a couple of products from L’Oreal. I picked up another of their nail polishes in Pistachio Drage. This is a stunning colour as is the rest of their latest range. These are fantastic quality and seem like good value, however they work out at the similar price as OPI and NailsInc per ml. That said, the colours are gorgeous and they are always on offer. They were on offer so I also picked up an eyeshadow from the same brand. I picked up the Colour Riche L’Ombre Pure Gel-Infused Eyeshadow in Nude. This is a cream eyeshadow in a beautiful taupe colour. I haven’t tested the longevity yet but it looks promising!
ESTEE LAUDER BLUSHER IN ELECTRIC PINK I have used this blusher every single day since I purchased it. It is the perfect natural flush of colour which lasts all day
RIMMEL MATCH PERFECTION FOUNDATION IN IVORY This foundation has a lovely consistency and is easily blendable with both fingers or brushes and because it doesn’t have any shimmer it is the perfect day foundation
INDEED LABS EYSILIX EYE CREAM This eye cream has a beautiful creamy texture and is really moisturising but doesn’t leave your under eye feeling tight
YANKEE CANDLE IN PINEAPPLE CILANTRO This is a lovely sweet scent for summer and tastes delectable
REN ROSA CENTIFOLIA HOT CLOTH CLEANSER This is only a sample size but I will definitely be purchasing the full size. This cleanser is creamy and lifts off all makeup including mascara and smells wonderful
DIOR VERNIS IN TRA-LA-LA This polish has a wonderful smooth texture and the colour is absolutely stunning. I have never had so many compliments about my nails before
MAYBELLINE ONE BY ONE MASCARA This was a firm favourite of mine years ago so I was so glad when they reissued it last year. This gives a lovely natural look that lengthens and separates lashes
SOAP AND GLORY ARCHERY BROW TINT AND PENCIL This is the perfect colour for both my hair and skin tone and I tend to use the pencil end more to give a natural brow look, however, the tint end is good for when there is gap in your brow
IT’S A 10 MIRACLE LEAVE-IN PRODUCT This leave in conditioner is amazing. It really nourishes the hair without making it greasy. Baby soft hair after the first use
I seriously cannot get enough of this colour, plus the formula is fantastic
I think that I have found my new favourite nail polish brand!
This polish is simply beautiful to apply, so smooth and silky, and has a luscious high gloss finish!
There is nothing more to say about it than simply stunning!
This is Essie’s Fiji which is a very pale pink with a white undertone.
I am loving white based pastels at the moment so for me this is the perfect summer shade.
The formula is fantastic and this photo was with 2 coats and is fully opaque.
Would definitely recommend for a classy summer look!
