I've been neglecting the blog, mainly due to the fact that I can't afford many new beauty products. However I went shopping yesterday and whilst I only purchased one item I have a wish list as long as my arm now.
I hate cotton wool with a passion, which makes taking nail polish off horrible for me. I've seen reviews of Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover so I thought I'd try it.
I love the colour of the container, nail polish remover always looks boring so this is a welcome change.
Upon opening the container I was greeted with a black sponge with a hole in the middle - this is where you insert your nail and twist before removing without any nail polish on. When I tried this product out I had a glitter polish on so wasn't expecting much from this product however it only took a few twists before it came off - much better than using cotton wool which ends up being a complete nightmare. My nails have been left soft and moisturised due to the product having almond oil in it and it left a delicious fragrance of red fruit and vanilla. Although this is a bit pricy at £4.99 I would definitely say its worth it depending on how long each container lasts. I can't wait to try it on normal polish to see if the 1 second it advertises is true.
My Wish List:
Barry M Chameleon Nail Polish
I saw these in Superdrug for the first time yesterday but I stopped myself from buying them as I wasn't really sure how they worked. However after reading several blogs I have learnt that they change colour when you put a top coat on which enables you to create instant nail art. I'm hoping they bring out more shades than just the 3 advertised as they are all I saw in Superdrug too. Definitely going to purchase some next time I go shopping!
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream
To be honest I'm still not really sure about BB creams and what they're supposed to do but after swatching this on my hand yesterday it was clear that although it is light it covers perfectly - maybe its more of an advanced tinted moisturiser. I'm definitely willing to try this one and if I like it I might get a more upmarket one as there is a really nice looking Dior one (and luckily for me one of my friends has just got a job working on a Dior beauty counter).
Revlon Lip Butter
I suffer from ridiculously dry lips. Whenever I want to add a bit of colour to my lips I'm either left choosing between lip gloss or the lip balms with the 'frosty' colourings. As soon as I saw the advert for these I wanted every colour but unfortunately on my shopping trip yesterday Superdrug had sold out of them and I completely forgot to look in Boots for them. I'm ideally wanting to try out a red shade first as I do love a red lip but with my dry lips wearing normal lipstick is out of the question. Has anybody tried these? Which are your favourite shades?
Maybelline Illegal Lengths Mascara
I used to love Maybelline mascara - every one they brought out I'd buy and worship. However recently I've stopped buying them - for no reason in particular as they're always good which is why I'm wanting to try their latest offering. The packaging looks a bit bland for them although it is slightly curved which makes it a bit more exciting. Definitely my next mascara purchase!
Katy Perry Eyelure Eyelashes
I really want to try these - Eyelure are fantastic and they're collaborations are amazing. I love the Girls Aloud ones and these look just as good. I'd probably avoid the really thick "Oh My" set as for me they'd be a bit too much as my eyes are quite small but I definitely want to try one of the other sets out.
Has anybody tried the products on my wish list? What did you think?
