Nails Of The Day | Off The Shoulder

Essie Nail Polish in Off The Shoulder
Essie Nail Polish in Off The Shoulder Swatch

Today I wanted to show you my new favourite nail polish! This is Essie's "Off The Shoulder" and you may have seen it in my Spring & Summer Nail Polishes post. I have absolutely fallen in love with this polish and wear it almost every time I paint my nails (lilacs are my next favourite shade!).

"Off The Shoulder" is a gorgeous glossy hot pink shade which, despite being such a popular nail polish colour, stands out from the rest in my collection. I love how this looks on my nails and I feel that it really compliments my skin tone. Also, the formula of this polish is amazing! It's creamy and opaque with just 1 coat, but out of habit I usually apply 2 for a more even finish. The flat, rounded Essie brushes make it so you can paint right down to the cuticle without creating a mess, plus they cover the whole nail in just a couple of swipes! Basically, the most easiest polish to apply! I find Essie polishes to last very well on the nails. Without a top coat the polish slightly chips within a day, but not so much that it bothers me.

Overall this is such a pretty nail polish and one that will be perfect with the Spring and Summer time! I recently ordered this from Fragrance Direct for just £1.99, so do keep checking the site to see if they have it back in stock!

What is your favourite Essie polish?

Hello everyone, I hope you're all well and had a lovely week! Today I filmed my second YouTube video which was a Primark haul (watch the video HERE) and I thought I would make a post about the makeup I was wearing! If you didn't already know that I've started to make videos on YouTube, you can check out my channel HERE!

Topshop Lips Lipstick in Confession [Review]

I rarely wear this Topshop lipstick, purely because it's such a bright shade of pink and I can only wear it in the Summer. Now that it's getting a bit sunnier and warmer, I thought I would make the most of it and wear this little beauty! As the lipstick is quite bold, I took the opportunity to try out my new eye shadow pigments in Halo and Special Dark by Lumiere Cosmetics. I can already say I absolutely love these eye shadows and you can expect to see a full review in the next week or so!

Review | John Frieda Luxurious Volume

John Frieda Luxurious Volume Hair Care Products
John Frieda Luxurious Volume Hair Care Products
John Frieda Blow Dry Lotion Root Booster and Touchably Full Shampoo
John Frieda Luxurious Volume Touchable Full Conditioner and Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo

Hello everyone, I hope you're all well and had a lovely weekend! Today I am going to be reviewing some products from the John Frieda Luxurious Volume range that I was kindly sent to try. As you may have read in my hair care post, I suffer with very fine hair and I am always looking out for products that can add that bit of volume! I especially lack lift and volume at my roots because my hair is very long and weighs itself down. I was very excited to try these products as I've had positive experiences with John Frieda products (especially the Sheer Blonde Tone Correcting Shampoo and Conditioner) and think they're brilliant value for money!

The John Frieda Luxurious Volume product range has recently been improved and now comes in this bright turquoise packaging that really stands out on the shelf! All of the products in this range are targeted at fine hair and are designed to give thickness, fullness and lift without weighing down your hair. They also have the same fresh, clean scent that I really like as it makes your hair smell freshly washed all day!

John Frieda Touchably Full Shampoo* & Conditioner* 250ml [£5.89 each]
The first John Frieda Luxurious Volume product I tried was the Touchably Full Shampoo. This shampoo is designed to gently cleanse your hair to remove any product residue to leave your hair clean, fresh and volumised! The Touchably Full Shampoo comes out as a clear liquid and is very easy to lather up on the hair. This is something I like in a shampoo as it feels like it's actually cleaning my hair and doing its job properly! Even though it creates a good lather, this shampoo is very easy to wash out and leaves your hair feeling squeaky clean!
 After shampooing, I then used the Touchably Full Conditioner. The conditioner is meant to give weightless conditioning to leave your hair feeling soft and full of volume! I can agree that this is light weight as the consistency is much thinner than other conditioners I have used before, but this means your hair can keep some of its natural volume and texture for fuller looking hair! Despite the consistency being thin, the Touchably Full Conditioner left my hair feeling really soft and healthy. These two products work really well together and I love the natural looking lift they give the roots of my hair. I also noticed the lengths of my hair were much fuller looking and not thin and limp like they usually are!

John Frieda Blow Dry Lotion Root Booster* 25ml [Approx. £2.00]
The next product I tried was the Blow Dry Lotion Root Booster. This product is designed to be used on towel-dried hair and is then sprayed over your hair, focusing at the roots to give you volume at the crown. You then blow dry as normal and you are left with fuller looking hair with a lot of lift at the roots! I was worried about spraying this in my roots as products like this can leave a greasy residue and make your hair look horrible even though you've just washed it! However, I found the Blow Dry Lotion very light weight and it didn't feel like I had product in my hair at all, so that really pleased me! The results of using the blow dry lotion were good, my roots had a lot more volume than when I leave my hair to dry naturally plus the lengths of my hair were fuller looking but not frizzy! One problem I found with this product is that the pump doesn't always allow the product to spray evenly across the hair. I had to spray it a couple of times to get the pump working properly and then I could use it on my hair. As I don't blow dry my hair on a regular basis (I find my curls look better when they've dried naturally), I probably wouldn't repurchase this product but I know I will use it whenever I can as I like the volume it gave at my roots!

John Frieda Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo* 150ml [£5.89]
The final product from the Luxurious Volume range I tried was the Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo. This was probably my most favourite product out of the 4 as I do enjoy a good dry shampoo! This product works by refreshing your hair on days it hasn't been washed and revives any volume you have lost! You focus this product at the roots which is where the hair can get the oiliest on days it hasn't been wash. This product does exactly what it says on the bottle and is one of the nicest dry shampoos I have used! The smell (like the rest of the products) is fresh and clean so makes your 2nd or even 3rd day hair smell and feel like it's just been washed! The product comes out as a fine mist and leaves absolutely no colour or residue on your hair, perfect for us darker haired ladies! I find this dry shampoo really does banish any excess oils on my hair, gives it a nice amount of volume and leaves it looking and feeling fresh.

Overall, I have really enjoyed trying out the Luxurious Volume range and will definitely included the products into my hair care routine, especially if my hair is feeling limp and lifeless! All of the products mentioned gave my hair volume which lasted around 1 to 2 days and the dry shampoo was brilliant at maintaining that volume, which I think is great! I would recommend anyone trying this range if they have problems with creating volume and lift with their hair. For me these products didn't give me the effect of big and volumised hair, just a natural lift that will makes my hair a lot easier to work with! Of course this will depend from person to person as everyone's hair is different. I also thought you'd like to know, John Frieda have their own YouTube channel and they have a video (watch HERE) all about creating volume with the Luxurious Volume products. If you're interested in using these products to give your hair that volumised finish, the video is well worth a watch!

Nails Of The Day | Shoreditch Lane

Nails Of The Day Nails Inc Shoreditch Lane Leather Effect
Nails Inc Shoreditch Lane Leather Effect Close Up
Nails Inc Leather Effect Shoreditch Lane
Nails Inc Leather Effect in Shoreditch Lane On The Nails

After trying Nails inc. Leather Effect in Soho Mews last month, I completely fell in love with the texture and finish and was able to try it in a different shade, Shoreditch Lane. This is a gorgeous mulberry/ deep burgundy shade that is rich and full of colour! It is a bit darker in real life but still looks amazing on the nails!

The formula is very thick, creamy and is opaque in just 1 coat, something I love about this range of nail polishes! It means if you apply the polish well, you can have gorgeous leather effect nails in just 1 coat! In the picture I have applied 2 coats just to make sure the colour is opaque and even. When you first apply the polish it is glossy and looks like any other nail polish, but as the polish starts to dry the leather effect will come through. I think it is nice to have this sort of "guideline" to show you when your polish is touch dry! The drying time of Nails inc.'s polishes is quick which is another thing I like about this brand. With the Leather Effect polishes you should not apply a top coat afterwards as this will ruin the matte finish (your nails will have a bit of shine to them, but not too much). Of course this means the amount of time it lasts on the nails isn't great, mine chipped in about a day, so this is something to bear in mind. One thing I would recommend is a good base coat when you are wearing this polish. As the colour is quite dark and rich, it is possible it can stain your nails!

I absolutely love the Leather Effect nail polishes and think they look amazing on the nails! Even though they are part of the Nails inc. Spring Summer Trend, I think this polish would look great during the cooler autumn months.

Nails inc. Leather Effect nail polishes are available on the Lookfantastic.com website for just £10.80!

What are your thoughts on the Nails inc. Leather Effect nail polishes?

Review | Dainty Doll Blushers

dainty Doll Powder Cream Blusher in You Are My Sunshine and Paper Roses Swatch

A couple weeks ago I finally jumped on the "Dainty Doll bandwagon" and bought a couple of their blushers from Fragrance Direct (read the haul HERE)! Dainty Doll is a makeup brand designed by Girls Aloud's Nicola Roberts and is tailored for girls with pale skin. Being a pale skin girl myself, I knew I wanted to give some of the products a go! I was originally going to buy some lipsticks but they were all sold out on Fragrance Direct, so I decided to go for some blushers instead! I spent quite a while picking and choosing different ones until I found the 2 gorgeous shades "You Are My Sunshine" and "Paper Roses". I knew I wanted to try a powder and a cream formula, purely out of blogger curiosity, and these were the shades that stood out to me the most!

Firstly, the packaging is absolutely lovely and everything you would want in a blusher! Each product comes in its own black box with a cartoon lady on the front (I'm guessing Nicola Roberts herself, right?). The blushers come in a black compact each with their own little mirror inside which makes these perfect for popping in your hand bag and using on the go! I really like the packaging of these blushers and makes them look and feel like a high end product.

"You are my sunshine" was the first blusher I picked out. This is a powder blusher in a gorgeous golden peach shade. It has the perfect amount of shimmer in to give your cheeks a lovely glow, plus the pigmentation is amazing and gives your cheeks a peachy flush of colour! The formula is really soft, easy to blend and applies really well with my "Elite Models Beveled Blush Brush". I love the gentle colour it gives my skin but I can tell you can build this up if you prefer a strong colour to your cheeks. I also find it lasts on my skin for a good amount of time, almost all day, which is much longer than many blushers I've tried before! This has definitely become my favourite everyday blusher and I think this will look gorgeous in the Summer when the sun can reflect the golden shimmers to make you look extra glowy!

"Paper Roses" is my second Dainty Doll blush and this comes in a cream formula. It's a very pretty, delicate pink shade and I think would look amazing on very pale girls. This blusher has a matte finish and is really well pigmented considering it's a cream formula. I've had past experiences of cream blushers offering little to no colour at all, so this is one of the best I have tried! It gives a gorgeous flush of pink to the cheeks and due to the formula, can be used on the lips to give a hint of colour. As it is a cream blusher, I simply apply and blend this with my fingers, however I find this can make it look a bit patchy so I might pick up a stippling brush to apply this with! For me, this blusher doesn't last as much on the cheeks as the powder one, but I think that is down to its cream formula. I think this is a lovely blusher but right now, I feel that I need to find the perfect brush to go with it so I can start to enjoy using it!

So overall, I am really impressed with Dainty Doll's blushers and I am tempted to pick up another shade next time I order with Fragrance Direct (if they're not all sold out that is!). I would recommend these blushers to any girls with paler skin and can't seem to find makeup that suits them properly! They are currently £1.99 on Fragrance Direct, saving you £11.51, an amazing deal to miss out on!

Have you tried anything by Dainty Doll?

Spring & Summer Nail Polishes

Spring Summer 2013 Nail Polishes
Spring Summer 2013 Nail Polishes
Spring Summer 2013 Nail Polishes Swatches

As it's been a bit more sunny and "Spring" like in England for the past couple days, I decided to make a post on what nail polishes I will be wearing this Spring/ Summer! I'm a girl who loves bright nails and I really look forward to this time of the year where I can wear my colourful nail polishes. I have chosen 5 of my absolute favourites which I have loved wearing so far and probably will do so right through the Summer!

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in "Prickly Pear" (Review) LINK
Barry M is one of my favourite brands for nail polishes and this year they have released some amazing new finishes and effects! My first Spring/ Summer favourite is this gorgeous lilac shade in "Prickly Pear". This shade is so pretty and has a glossy finish which means you can have amazing looking nails without a top coat. Lilac has always been one of my favourite nail polish shades and I think it will look great all through Spring and Summer.

Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in "Blueberry" (Review) LINK
Yes another Barry M Gelly polish, but I just find the colour range of these polishes right up my street! "Blueberry" is a bright, bold blue which looks stunning on the nails after 2 coats. I've really been into blue nail polish recently and "Blueberry" has to be one of my favourite shades! 

Nails inc. in "Royal Botanical Gardens"* (Review) LINK
I don't think I could ever get over how gorgeous this nail polish is! "Royal Botanical Gardens" is a bright cool mint shade and is part of the new "Trend Shades" by Nails inc. I think this shade will go perfectly with a tan and is one of the nail polishes I'm thinking about taking on holiday with me in July! This shade is so bright and colourful it just screams "Summer", I had to put it in my top 5!

Essie Nail Lacquer in "To Buy Or Not To Buy" (Swatch) LINK
I bought a set of 4 Essie polishes from TK Maxx last year and "To Buy Or Not To Buy" was the one that stood out to me this most. Again, this is a lilac/ lavender shade but is much lighter than "Prickly Pear" and has tiny blue shimmers running through it. Essie polishes have an amazing formula and their brushes make it so easy to apply, a big must have during the Summer when you want neatly painted nails. This is a really pretty pastel shade that is perfect for this time of the year!

Essie Nail Lacquer in "Off The Shoulder" LINK
 This is one of the newest polishes in my collection (read the haul HERE) and has jumped straight on to my "favourite nail polishes" list! "Off The Shoulder" is a hot pink shade which has something about it that makes it look amazing on my nails! It's bright but not too in your face and just looks really pretty and girly. Pink nail polish is such a staple shade to wear during the Summer and this polish is my new go to one this year!
So these are the polishes that I think will look perfect this Spring and Summer! Barry M, Nails inc and Essie have to be my favourite nail polish brands. The quality and colour range of each of the brands is amazing and I think they are well worth trying out!

What is your favourite nail polish for Spring and Summer?

Collective Beauty Haul

Nail Polish Collective Haul
Nail Polish Collective Haul Close Up
Lipstick Collective Beauty Haul
Lipstick Collective Beauty Haul Close Up
Blusher and Eye Shadow Collective Beauty Haul
Miss Selfridge and Matalan Jewellery Haul

So over the last few weeks I have done what I can only describe as my fair share of shopping! There were some products I have been meaning to try for quite a while plus a bunch of beauty bargains I couldn't help but pick up! As I am going away on holiday in July, I've been on the hunt for some new beauty and makeup pieces I can bring with me. I've mainly focused on bright and Summery shades as these are the colours I like to wear in the warmer months!

Nail Polish
The first thing I picked up was a copy of Marie Claire as I had heard there was a free Ciate polish with every issue! The only shade I could find was "Pocket Money" which is a creamy fudge nude which I'm not 100% keen on but I will give it a go none the less! Next I found 2 Maybelline Forever Strong Pro polishes in "Porcelain Beige" and "Lilac Charm" in my local Poundland. I have wanted to try these Maybelline polishes, especially the lilac one, for a very long time so I was really happy to see them for just £1! The formula of these nail polishes is amazing and I hope to pick up some more shades soon! From Primark, I picked up another Angelica polish in the sale called " Ocean" for just £1. This is a gorgeous shimmery mermaid blue/ purple and I think it would be great for Summer! Finally from Fragrance Direct I ordered a new Essie polish in "Off the shoulder" which is a hot pink shade! I'd seen this in quite a few people's blog posts and thought it looked gorgeous! I'm currently wearing it at the moment and I must say, it's going to be one of my top 5 polishes for Summer!

Lipstick
Again from Poundland I picked up a Sleek Sheer Cover Lipstick in the shade "Satin" which is a nude pink. I have bought Sleek lipsticks from Poundland before but the shades weren't what I expected nor were they ones I would ever wear. I'm glad to finally have a wearable Sleek lipstick in my collection! Next from Wilkinson's, I finally got round to buying another Rimmel lipstick in "Coral in gold" which is a pretty golden coral shade. If you read my Rimmel Lipstick Collection post you may remember that I said I had lost mine and that is was one of my favourite lipsticks! Now it's back in my collection and I can't wait to wear it again! My final lipsticks are the 2 of the new Revlon Lip Butters shades in "Juicy Papaya" (a soft coral) and "Wild Watermelon" (a red toned pink) which I picked up in Boots. I was planning on getting "Pink lemonade" (a light pink) instead of "Wild Watermelon" but I was so disappointed at how sheer it was that I decided not to buy it. The 2 shades I bought though are both absolutely gorgeous and look lovely on the lips!

Blusher & Eye Shadow
After reading so many hauls and reviews, I've finally got round to buying my first Dainty Doll blushers from fragrance Direct! I decided to go for "You are my sunshine" which is a golden peach powder blusher and "Paper roses" which is a delicate pink cream blusher. I'm so happy with the shades I got and can't wait to try them out! The next blusher I bought was a re-purchase of Natural Collection's "Pink cloud" from Boots. This is a pretty pink shade that I think will work on any skin tone! Natural Collection blushers are great quality for just £1.99 and they do a really nice selection of shades to choose from. The only eye shadows I picked up was a Seventeen Eye Shadow Trio in "Metallic Toffee" again from Boots. I had a coupon through the post which meant I could pink this trio up for just £1, which was an amazing bargain considering the RRP is £5.49! I thought this would be perfect for creating a simple neutral eye look as you get a lid, crease and highlight shade all in one!

Jewellery
I've recently found this gorgeous pink rose and gold spike bracelet from Miss Selfridge in the half price jewellery sale and it was just too pretty to leave behind! I thought it would be a simple piece that I could wear with lots of different outfits and layer up with different gold bracelets. The last piece is this dainty rose gold cross ring from Matalan. I don't often shop in Matalan, but I'd heard their jewellery selection is meant to be designed by the same people from Topshop so I thought I would take a look around. This ring is really simple and plain but because it's rose gold, it just looks lovely on! I will definitely be shopping in Matalan again soon!

And that's my huge collection beauty haul! I love everything I've bought and can't wait to start creating new looks with all the makeup. If there are any products you would like to see a review on, then please leave me a comment below! Also, if you have recently written a haul post, please leave the link below as I love reading them and putting new things on my wish list!

What's your favourite beauty item to take with you on holiday?
Hope you're having a lovely week!

Review | Benefit Fine One One

Benefit Fine One One Review Belle-amie
Benefit Fine One One Shades Review Belle-amie
Benefit Fine One One Shades Review Belle-amie
Benefit Fine One One Swatch Review Belle-amie
Pink Champagne, Sheer Watermelon & Soft Coral - 2 swipes

Benefit is one of my favourite high end makeup brands. The packaging of their products is simply amazing and makes me want to buy all of their products! The Benefit Fine One One makes no exception to this rule and I was so excited to hear I had won this beautiful product in Chelsea's (Through Chelsea's Eyes) giveaway last month! The Benefit Fine One One has become a staple in my everyday makeup routine so I thought it was about time I reviewed it for you!

Fine One One is a cream cheek and lip product that contains 3 different shades which together give the skin a beautiful pop of colour! The 3 shades are: Pink Champagne (a shimmery pink highlight), Sheer Watermelon (a sheer pink blush) and Soft Coral (a matte coral blush or contour). This product is designed to be swiped across the cheek towards the temple and then blended for an effortless glow to the skin. As I like my blusher quite natural, just 1 swipe of the Fine One One is perfect as it gives me the right amount of colour to my cheeks. As each of the 3 shades are separate, this also means it's easy to apply just 1 of the shades to the lips or even use the highlight on the brown bone! I love how versatile this product is and even though I haven't use it that much on my lips, it's nice to know that you can.

This product also lasts very well, I've tried some cream blushers that instantly wear off the skin but the Fine One One is nothing like this! I would say it lasts a good 4-6 hours depending on how much you've applied and whether you've set it with your face powder. It will also depend on your skin type and because I have quite dry cheeks, it seems to last a good amount of time. Saying that, I've never found it to cling to any dry patches on my cheeks and it looks completely natural once blended in!

And last but not least, the packaging! I love anything rose gold and to me, this is absolutely gorgeous! The Fine One One comes in a small metal case which you pull off the lid to reveal the product. You can then twist it up or down with the little dial at the bottom. In the picture above I have turned the stick up fully, so you do get a fair amount of product, especially that you only need a small amount to achieve a lovely glow! I like how it's very compact and it would look amazing sitting on your dressing table!

Overall I am in love with this product. It's everything I would want in a cream blusher and I'm so happy to have this in my makeup collection! I would definitely recommend anyone to try this and think it's going to be amazing for the Summer months where you need that bright pop of colour to the cheeks!

Have you tried the Benefit Fine One One?

Review | Magnifibres Brush-On False Lashes

Magnifibres Brush On False Lahes Review Packaging Belle-amie

Magnifibres Brush On False Lahes Review Tube Packaging Belle-amie
Magnifibres Brush On False Lahes Wand Review Belle-amie
Magnifibres Brush On False Lahes Results Swatch Step By Step Review Belle-amie

I personally have a love-hate relationship with false eye lashes. I love the length, volume and effect they give my real lashes but I hate the hassle of putting them on! I find them quite fiddly and they take me quite a while to put on, not good if I'm in a rush to go out! I also prefer false lashes that are quite natural looking yet give lots of volume to my lashes. This is where Magnifibres Brush-On False Lashes really helps me out! It's meant to give the immediate effect of thick, false effect lashes without the hassle and time of the real falsies themselves! To me, this sounded like the perfect solution to my false lashes dilemma! The mascara I have paired Magnifibres with in this review is Soap & Glory's Thick & Fast Mascara (review), but you can use any one you want to!

Magnifibres is designed to be applied after your first coat of mascara and before your second coat. The Magnifibres mascara look-a-like tube contains tiny fibres which will stick to your first coat of mascara allowing you to build up volume and length with the second coat. As they are just tiny fibre strands sticking to your lashes, there is no damage to your real lashes and is completely safe to use! Even with my sensitive eyes, I found these comfortable to apply and hardly felt like there was anything on my actual lashes. Once you apply the second coat of mascara, the appearance of the little fibres disappears and you are left with gorgeously long and thick eye lashes, which is exactly the effect that I like! I found the wear time of my mascara was still the same, just that my lashes were more volumised and longer than usual!

How to apply Magnifibres
♥ Apply your own mascara as usual.
♥ Immediately apply Magnifibres onto your lashes whilst the mascara is still wet, using the same technique as if you were applying a mascara.
♥ Wait 30-60 seconds and apply the second coat of your mascara. You can repeat this process to reach your desired look.

The packaging of the Magnifibres' box is very cute and gives you the step-by-step instructions on how to apply them! The tube of the fibres looks just like a mascara tube and is white with the logo on the front. As the directions aren't on the tube itself, you may have to keep the box in case you want to remember them! The wand is very slim which means you can reach all of your lashes (even those smaller, peskier ones!) to give a full lash effect. It also acts just like a mascara wand so is very easy to use and apply!

So overall I am really enjoying using Magnifibres and find them perfect to wear either for a night out or just for day time at college. As I love the effect of full lashes, I feel comfortable enough to wear them during the day, but of course some people may not want to!

You can buy Magnifibres Brush-On False Lashes from Lookfantastic.com with free delivery!

March Favourite's

March Spring 2013 Favourites Revlon Dr Jart Urban Decay Barry M Belle-amie
March Spring 2013 Favourites Revlon Dr Jart Urban Decay Barry M Belle-amie
I cannot believe how quickly April has come around! We're a quarter of the way through 2013 already, it seems to be whizzing by so fast! I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend and ate far too much chocolate than they were supposed to! I had a great weekend and spent it with my family and boyfriend eating roast turkey and lots of cakes (definitely going to have to start a diet this April haha!). Last month there were a few products that I had been reaching for a lot, plus a couple that I have just really enjoyed using. So in this post I am going to talk about these lovely little products!

♥ Dr Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm LINK
This was a prize I had won from Chelsea's (Through Chelsea's Eyes) giveaway. I had never heard of or tried this brand before so I was very excited to try it out! I'm so glad I did because this is one of the nicest BB creams I have ever tried! The consistency of this BB cream is almost like a light weight foundation and blends out really well to give a light, natural coverage. Despite being a light coverage product, this BB cream does cover up and blend out imperfections very well. I've enjoyed using this on lazy days round the house with a little bit of powder to give a natural finish to my skin.

♥ Revlon Colourburst Lip Butters (Review) LINK
These are probably some of the most hyped up lip products on the beauty scene and I for one absolutely love them! The two colours I've been loving this month are Strawberry Shortcake and Berry Smoothie, both of which are pink shades. I've found these perfect for throwing on for college as they give a lovely flush of colour to the lips. I also love how moisturising and soft they feel on the lips! I can't wait to pick up some of the new shades that have just been released, especially Pink Lemonade and Juicy Papaya (they sound so yummy)!

♥ Urban Decay Eyeshadow Sparkle in Midnight Cowgirl LINK
This is one of those eye shadows that should be a staple in every girl's makeup collection! Midnight Cowgirl is a gorgeous shimmery nude champagne which is perfect to place all over the lid for a daytime look. I love using this when I'm going for a simple eye look and bolder lips as it gives your eyes that pretty hint of shimmer! Urban Decay is my favourite brand for eye shadows as the formula and colour selection are amazing!

♥ Barry M Basecoat, Topcoat & Nail Hardener in Clear LINK
This is my final favourite product from March and, despite looking quite boring, is probably my most favourite! This Barry M nail paint is a 3 in 1 base/ top coat polish that can help strenghen up your nails. As you may know my nails are very weak and constantly peel and snap off, so I thougth for just £2.99 I'll give it a go! This is probably one of the best, cheap clear polishes I have tried! Other ones I have tried just peel off and hardly protect my polish from chipping. This one however prevents my polish from chipping and has definitely made my nails a lot stronger! If I'm not wearing any nail polish I'll just apply 1 layer of this and I've found my nails hardly peel or split! Definitely a polish worth picking up if you have weak nails like me.

And they're my favourite products for March! I hope you enjoyed this post, as usual if there are any products you want a more in depth review on please just let me know in the comments!

What are your March favourite's?
