Well first of all I wanted to wish each and everyone one of you a very happy new year I for one will be glad when this year is over and done. This year has brought nothing but pain, bad luck and poor health to people I care about. I'm hoping 2012 will bring you and I hope happiness love and laughter. 2011 has had some good points I found the blogging world and through that and twitter have become really good friends with people I would never have other wise meet. So here's to 2012 for me I would like to find a new job/career I would like to get more into my blog and finally meet some of the wonderful beauty bloggers I talk to.

2True Colour Drench Lip Gloss

Hi Ladies xxx

So last week I was Lucky enough to get this through the post.  Now for those of you who don't know this brand your can purchase it from super drug all the products are £1.99 or 3 for £4.99 which is a great offer.  I have a fair few thing from this brand and and I do really like.  

Their 3 in 1 concealer is my favourite from their range and well worth a try.

2True Colour Drench Lipgloss in shade 5
Swatched

Now as you know I'm not into colour but this is really nice especially if you don't normally wear colour.  It stayed place and lasted a long time although it was a little on the sticky side which was the only thing I didn't really like about it but having said that it wasn't bad enough to put me off wearing it.

Hi Ladies xxx

Ive been stalking my local Super Drug again on the hunt for the lessa spotted MUA Out There Plumping Lip gloss and guess what the stalking paid off.  Last week I popped in half expecting it not to be there and it was so dashing over barging other shoppers out the way I managed to get my sticky little mits on the last one woooo hoooo and it was in the colour I wanted NUDE.


Out There Plumping LipGloss in NUDE £2

I love the packaging
Swatched

Now I have tried hundreds (no exaggeration) but I do really like this not only is the colour really flattering but I think it actually does what it says on the tube which again is rare.  Their is that slight tingling sensation but its not as god forsaken as some of the other I have tried the colour lasts all in all a big thumbs up from me who know I might even pick up a coloured shade shock horror.

Dont forget to complete the survey on the back of your Super Drug receipt if you do and spent over £10 you get 10% branded items and 25% Super Drug own which MUA falls into

China Glaze Glittering Garland NOTD

Hi Ladies xxx

A few weeks back I treated myself to some new nail polish (Nail polish haul post) I have never tried China Glaze before but I fell in love with the Christmas collection and I couldn't resist this little gem.  

If you haven't tried China Glaze before it is defiantly worth paying that bit extra for it applies like a dream the picture is taken with just 2 coast applied and since applying it 4 days ago it is still going strong no chips at all which is very impressive having said that I have as you can see cut all my nails off.

China Glaze Glittering Garland

I have had so many people comment on this polish and although its green as its so dark its not in your face.  This has totally got me in the Christmas mood.

What shades should I pick up next ???

All I Want For Christmas IS ?????

Hi Ladies xxx

So Christmas is fast approaching I cant believe where this year has gone its scary how quick it has gone by.  Anyway on to the point of this post every year Jon will ask me what I want for Christmas and every year we do the same I draw if up a wish list of things I would love and research where to get to get the best deal.  

So this is a few of the things that were on my list.


China Glaze Eye Candy Collection
Katy Perry Purr Perfume
Mac Make up (quite a long list for him to pick off)
Sigma Cleansing and polishing tool

I'm sure he wont disappoint me as he is very very good with present shopping.

So what Santa bring you for christmas ??

Ebay and Wilkinson False Eyelash Haul

Hi Ladies xxx

As you know I love false eyelashes I have tried loads of different brands but this post is to show you one of my favourite brands and some new ones I have picked up.  

When I pick my eyelashes I tend to get the strip one as I always wear eyeliner and I can hide the strip.  I haven't tried the individual ones but I might pick up some and have a play with them.

So my tips to applying your lashes measure them first from the inner corner of your eye to the outer if you need to trim any of the lash trim the outer part not the inner.

Don't use the silly little glue that comes with them its useless trow it away invest in some good eyelash glue as most people get put off due to the faff of applying the lashes.

Give the glue time to start drying this helps them stick where you place them and not slide all over your face.

Practise makes perfect if you don't get it right first time try again when I get a new set I do a trial run.

Wilkinson Eyelashes £1
Out the packaging Natural
Wilkinson lashes £1 fuller
EBay lashes 55p for 10 pairs BARGAIN!!!!
The Lashes

The Wilkinson one for £1 are amazing and perfect for a natural look and perfect for a first time user as they don't cost alot.  The ones I got from EBay are amazing value for money I always search EBay main serach eyelashes then options lowest price + p&p and other countries thats how I found these they arrived in a sterdy box and were perfect and arrived very quick.  

For my birthday I had a MAC make over and got a pair of there lashes #34 which are beautiful they start shorter and go longer toward the outer corner of your eye which is really flattering but at £10 a pair ill stick to my Wilkenson £1 ones for now

Whats your favourite lashes???

TRESemne Smooth Memory Straightening Spray

Hi Ladies xxx

This fell into my basket on yet another of my walks around SuperDrug it claims to work with heat appliances to train your hair into becoming straighter and smoother and less frizzy over time.  

Its memory technology claims to make straightening faster and easier and helps protect against heat damage. 

Memory Straightening Spray £4.99

Spray Applicator

So when I used it the first thing I liked was the applicator the spray ment applying it was quick easy and not at all messy.  
Second thing was the smell it smells AMAZING!! 
Third thing was how soft and shiny my hair was only after drying.  
I straightened it and my hair looked in really good condition and very very shiny. 

 The smell lingered on my hair which was nice so all in all a good product and well worth the money talking of money this is currently on 2 for £5.99 that a whole £1 more for 2 of these then I paid for this one 
NO BRAINIER!!! give it a try.

Garnier BB Cream

Hi Ladies xxx

So I brought this a while ago and I thought id give it a good work out before I reviewed it 
and the result is I love it I was using the skin 79 one which I do really like it this one 
I reach for far more often now.  

Garnier BB Cream in Light

Swatched 

Very creamy very easy to blend great colour match for my skin

Blended

So this costs the same as my skin 79 one it does pretty much the same thing but the Garnier one doesn't leave me skin looking oily.  

I also like that the Garnier one doesn't have the grey tinge that the other one does have.  I know it does go after it has warmed on the skin but it takes time and when I'm rushing to get ready I don't have the time to wait.  

On a night out I use this as a base for my foundation which works really nicely.

So would I repurchase yes I would I think £10 is a little pricey for drugstore but it is a really nice product.

Batiste Wild Dry Shampoo

Hi Ladies xxx

So this arrived this week and I couldn't wait to try it out I am a big fan of the batiste line its a life saver.   

 Batiste Wild

Batiste say its for a daring girls who are in touch with their animal instinct.  A feisty Oriental fragrance with loads of personality when you're out on the prowl.

I love the smell of cocoa, vanilla and musk its amazing and I love the design of the bottle you can pick yours up from boots for £2.99 which I think is a bargain !! also I have very dark hair and after use it was unnoticeable in my hair all that was left was the smell.

Check out the whole range HERE

Whats your favourite Batiste ??

What would you like to see next from Batiste id love a chocolate one!

Face Mask Friday

Hi Ladies xx

So Faith and I decided we were going to pamper ourselves so we got or pj's on settled down to watch a film and put on a face mask Faith picked this one.

The Face Mask
Now when I opened it we both thought it smelt amazing the instructions said to leave it on for 15 minutes or until it was dry.  However we lasted about 7 minutes and then ran to the bathroom to remove it.  


This Is What The Mask Looks Like On (attractive)

After that time the smell was awful and sickening once I removed it it left Faith and my face red which after about 15 minutes faded away.  

Now its not all bad it did leave my face soft and clean feeling but this mask isn't for me.

Introduction to Konad with video eeeekkkkk

Hi Ladies xxx

A few people have ask me if I can tell them a bit more about the Konad Nail Art system so here goes to use this system you need 3 things.  Here is where I got my stuff from their customer service is amazing and the stuff arrives really quick Konad Online Shop.

They stock loads of different image plates and stamping polishes they also stock cosmetics and nail accessories.

 1= Konad Image Stamping Plate
 2= Konad Stamper and Scrapper
3= Konad Stamping Polish

So this system works by 
Painting the stamping polish on the stamping plate 
Then using the scrapper to scrap off the polish 
Then with the stamper stamp the image on your nails.  

Its so easy to do once you get the hang of it and once you have you get totally obsessed with it.  I know I am I try and incorporate it in all my nail art now.  

The thing which surprised me was how clean and clear the stamped images are.  

The other thing is that although its designed for nail art you can stamp on just about anything.

Now I have done a little video showing you how to use the system but this was my first attempt so its not very good I'm sorry


Would love to know what you think to the Konad system 
What plates have you got? 
What plates should I get next?

Think I'm going to get some Christmas plates next and some full cover image plates.
