MUA Pro Extreme Felt Eyeliner

Hi Ladies xxx

So this week I popped into my local Super Drug store which does stock the MUA range but wasn't down to get the Pro range. However imagine my surprise when I walked in a noticed a new stand with the pro range on WWWOOOO HHHOOOOOO

So I really wanted
Trio Eye Shadows in innocence and chocolate box - no stock
The primer - the tester was like water so I left it
Mosaic bronzer in natural glow - no stock

They did have the the 3 in 1 contour pen in brown which I was tempted by but left in the end

So in the end I got the MUA Pro Extreme Felt Eye liner now my favourite liner at the moment it my Miners define and line liquid liner but I love these felt tip pen type ones. The last one i got was from ELF and was bloody awful it ran really bad. This one seems to be holding up really well the line was easy to apply and you can do thin and think lines with it it doesn't drag on the eyelid. I would like to see this is brown I'm not sure if its not available or was just out of stock but I am really getting into brown eye liner at the moment.

MUA Pro Extreme Felt Eye liner £2.00

The Tip

Swatched

So yet another great product from the MUA range if you haven't tried this range yet you need to its amazing value for money and the quality of the product can really rival the high end brands.

I also got 20p off mine by completing the online feedback form if you do the feedback you get 25% Super Drug own brand and 10% off branded goods

What have you tried from the range??
If you have tried the primer or contour pen what did you think of it?

Leighton Denny Best Defence Hand & Nail Cream

Hi Ladies xxx

So this is a review on my favourite hand cream of all time and as you know I love hand creams.  
I can not say enough about this hand cream I use this twice a day at least! 
I normally use in the morning and before bed.

Leighton Denny Best Defence Hand Cream

What They Say
Applying Best Defence is like wearing invisible gloves that protect against brittle nails, dryness, environmental damage & the signs of ageing.  A unique blend of UV protectors, AHAs, moisturisers and skin tone stabilisers, Best Defence is a 24 hour care that keeps nails ans skin wonderfully conditioned and silky smooth.  Non greasy and easily absorbed.

Best Defence Hand Cream

This hand cream is rich and thick and smells amazing I really think this stuff promotes growth and healthy nails.

Have you used any of Leighton Denny's Range is so what would you recommend??

Super Drug Vitamin E Eye Cream

Hi Ladies xxx

So I'm not getting any younger and to be honest I have never really thought about anti aging lotions and potions however last week my sister got me some Philosophy Skin care samples.  One of the samples was for a eye cream which I never use but I have used this twice a day for about 2 weeks and I have really noticed a difference with the skin around my eyes and the dark circles under my eyes which I have always had.  

So now that the sample is almost empty I thought I should continue with a eye cream but needed one which didn't break the bank so on browsing in Super Drug I spotted this.

Super Drug Vitamin E Eye Cream 15ml £1.99

So first impressions very purse friendly, has a SPF of 15, absorbed into my skin really quickly there was no smell to the cream and it didn't leave my under eye skin greasy all plus points.  

However its not all good this cream is jam packed with micro fine glitter which I didn't really notice on my face but when I did the swatch on my hand I could see it more noticeable.  

But having said that I think once I have put my make up on I don't really think it will show.


The Cream

So all in all I will continue to use this and will keep you updated on my progress.

Clean & Clear Morning Energy Skin Brightening Daily Facial Moisturiser

Hi Ladies xxx

So as you know I Love Clean & Clear Stuff but I have run out of my normal face wash and I got the morning energy one so I decided to get the moisturiser to go with it.  

I really like this it smells lovely the formula is light weight and isn't greasy however the brightening comes from tons of micro fine glitter which I'm not a huge fan of however when I apply my make up your cant really tell its there. 

Clean & Clear Morning Energy Moisturiser

I now use this in the morning and my dual action Clean and Clear of the night.  

The Moisturiser

Have you Tried any of the new range??



Super Drug Tea Tree Cleanser & Toner

Hi Ladies xxx

So while in Super Drug I remembered to pick up some of their Tea Tree range I think they are always on offer they are normally are £2.99 each or 2 for £3.99 yes 2 for under £4.  So the cleanser has tea tree and peppermint oil and aloe vera extract in to cleanse and tone the face.



What they Say:
This light weight non greasy 2 in 1 cleanser and toner with natural tea tree and peppermint oils removes dirt make up and other skin impurities helping to promote a clearer spot free complexion specially formulated with aloe Vera extract it will leave your skin feeling soft and fresh tea tree oil originates from Australia it is a natural antibacterial agent known for its antiseptic healing properties peppermint oil is renowned for its therapeutic effect on the skin and for its cooling sensation.


I'm not really sure if this has helps my spots as I have alot going on in my personal life which is causing me some stress but I love the face it help to remove my make up and leaves my skin feeling really clean.

NOTD GOSH Holographic

Hi Ladies xxx


 I have been lusting over this polish for ages and I finally found it in Super Drug back in February in the sale I got mine for about £2.55 BARGAIN!! 

Now I have seen how much this little beauty is going for on Ebay and I did think of selling it however I decided to keep it and to be honest since buying it this is the first time I have worn it.  

Applying it is a bloody nightmare it seems to pull and go streaky.  It took about 3 sometime 4 coats to get full coverage having said that I do love the overall look of it and it is worth the pain of applying it.  

I found the best way is to load your brush with polish and try and to coat nail in one go.  I think if you were to apply a light colour base coat it might apply a little better giving the polish something to stick to.

The finished look


Hope you like it!

If you have this polish have you found a trick to apply it???

Minnie Mouse Nails




Hi ladies xxx





So I treated myself to some dotting tools ages ago and until tonight I haven't even got them out the wrapper.

So I hot this design off utube and really wanted to give it ago. So I started off putting on a base coat and then painted the tips red. I then put some white polish on a old plate and using my new dotting tools I applied the little fits on the red tips. Next was the bow I added some black polish to my plate and again with my dotting tools I did the little bows.

Once dry I applied top coat ta tarrrrrr

I'm quite pleased with the end result.

What do u think????

Clean & Clear Morning Energy Facial Wash

Hi Ladies xxx

So as you know I love the Clean and Clear range it has done wonders for my problem skin.  However I did run out a few weeks ago and changed back for my pink grapefruit range which hasn't really done anything for my skin.  Now I have to be honest I dont think there much that can help my skin at the moment as I have a lot on my plate at the moment and although I can hide my feeling stress show on my skin in the way of huge massive red spots.  So I decided to go back to my old faithful and when I went to get it I noticed this new morning range and thought I would give it a go.  

 Morning Energy Face Wash
 The Busting Beads
 Bad pic but you can just make out the beads

The gel foams up and as with all the Clean and Clear it tingles a little which your rub on your skin.  I like this as I like to think its working and deep cleaning my skin.  The little beads bust really easy and to be honest you cant really feel them however this stuff really smells nice.  

It is called Morning range but it can be used any time I have been using it twice a day morning when I get back from work and the my normal face wash of the night.

Now anyone who had the last Glossy box will of had one of these polishes in their box I was really pleased with mine and really wanted to try more however I haven't got that sort of cash to shell out at the moment as I'm looking for a new job.  

 Ciate My Fair Lady
 My Fair Lady Applied

I love this polish it reminds me of OPI Bubble Bath with I love.  It applies really nicely and and dries quick too I applied 2 coats and I think its really pretty this colour looks like your own nails but better.

Have you tried any Ciate polishes what shades would you recommend?

Sleek Pout Polish Nude Collection



Hi Ladies xxx


So the weekend we popped into town and I treated myself to a Sleek Pout Polish from the nude collection in shade 963 bare minimum how did I miss this this collection as it looks like it was designed for me. 


 The pout polish has a SPF of 15 and is full of Shea butter, sweet almond oil and avocado oil. There isn't much colour to it when it's applied but does gives lips lovely shine. 


 It has a sort of vanilla smell and taste to it which is OK. Think I might have to try the chocolate kiss one next.

I haven't really tried much from the Sleek range any recommendations

Re-growing My Nails Week 4


Hi ladies xxx

So were on week 4 already and this is what they look like. Still doing same routine but have been using my Leighton Denny hand cream twice a day morning and night .

MUA Mosaic Bronzer Sunkissed Glow Shade 2

Hi Ladies xxx

I was sent this by the lovely Rachel along with the MUA Heaven and Earth Palette She truly has a heart of gold if you haven't checked out her blog pop over its brilliant Rachels Blog aprettyobsession.

MUA Mosaic Bronzer
So Pretty


Swatched

Now its meant to be a bronzer but I use this as a blush as is has a flush to it.  It really is a pretty colour and is really well pressed what I mean by that is when I swirl my brush in it loads of powder doesn't flake off.  

So if you are looking for a really natural blush give this a go I love this and I'm sure this will be in my August Favourites.

Have you tried the MUA Pro range if so what should I add to my shopping list.  I'm having a hard time getting my hands on the pro range in Super Drugs near me most haven't got the stock and I like to swatch in person before I buy.
