Oh my god am I obsessed with this lipstick! Gorgeous blue undertones = instant teeth whitening! I was browsing the Rimmel stand in a Pharmacy near mine looking for a new lipstick and this one instantly caught my eye! This Rimmel lipstick doesn't have the same sickly scent the that their lasting finish ones have, which was a plus as the smell of those make me feel a little ill. Still that horrible typical powdery makeup smell but I'd rather that than sickly sweet!
I didn't find this drying at all and it lasted me AGES! I paired this with a little bit of Mac's Currant lipliner to help it stay and to add a bit of depth, but honestly, it didn't really need it in the first place. After a while I found it kind of dried/set to almost a matt finish, which I don't prefer but I can't resist the colour.I'm planning on getting a lot of wear out of this as I see it as a fun Summer colour, but also a slightly vampy lip colour for colder months? I' not sure?! All I know is that I LOVE THIS. It's so affordable too, at £5.29. I forget you can get some brilliant high street lip colours without having to splurge £13.50 on a Mac lipstick.

I've been dying for heated rollers for I don't know how long now! On Saturday I got Boots own heated rollers, also called "Style solutions". Had a bit of a mare the first time I used them though! You get 3 different sized rollers, and 3 different sized grips to secure them in place with. Being too over excited to use them I went straight ahead and grabbed the biggest roller and....the hair grip for the smallest roller. Every now and again I'd hear a PING, my roller would drop out, and the hair grip would have flown off to the other end of my bedroom! I thought the different coloured tips at the bottom of the grips were to make them lok nice, not to represent a size difference! Can't even believe I'm admitting this major fail on the internet.
A full 24 hours of sulking over rollers later, I tried again and this time noticed that whole grip/roller situation. After that everything went perfectly! Insanely good value for money when you see these Enrapture rollers over the internet which I think are something like £60+. These were £22.99 and did the job perfectly. They took about 10 minutes to heat up and there's a handy little red dot on one of the rollers that goes grey when they're ready for use. They're pretty hot but you would have to stick your finger inside the roller to do any major damage, as I was considering getting some heat proof gloves to use with them!
If you've always wanted to try these out then I definetely recommend these! I can't compare them to any other brand as I havn't tried any others out, but these seem to be the cheapest, and I've seen and heard a lot of good things about them. I also filmed a Youtube video doing a demo with these rollers! Click here to watch it!

Described as a "Coral-peach with gold pearl" (Frost finish) Style, is without a doubt my most favourite Blush of all time. It's silky to touch, blends beautifully and is easily buildable to acheive your desired look. Even though it's still only March, people seem to be more excited for Summer than ever, so if you want to embrace the summer season and warm weather already, Style can bring a lovely peachy golden glow to your cheeks.
If overdone this can look a bit orange, and if you're too tanned I also find this Blush gets a bit lost in your tan. I'm not the type of person to pile cheek products on so even a hint of this showing through a tan works wonderfully for me. If you're not swayed by my pictures and don't already own this, I highly recommend swatching this product!

I always get so jealous when I see people uploading pictures of their nail art, where they have beautiful, long, healthy nails, and always have great designs like the famous "galaxy nails" design, newspaper nails, etc. I've tried these galaxy nails before and not only do they require a sh*t ton of effort, mine just never seem to turn out right either. I've had this nail varnish since Christmas now, and I've never noticed this until recently, but how much does the nail varnish in the bottle look all galaxy/starry sky like? Perfect for a quick coat and there you have it - galaxy nails without all the effort. This varnish is called Gypsy night, and you can buy it from Topshop here for £6. It's a really beautiful nail varnish anyway, and is good to go after 2 coats. 1 coat is a bit too sheer but it's easily buildable and gives a beautiful finish. I'm sorry it doesn't show up so well on my nails, but I promise it's beautiful in real life.
