If you can find the time...

These are a few products I have loved / hated this week...

Benefit Coralista Blush - My new favorite blush. I couldn't find the Sleek blush i was after this week, so I treated myself to this instead. It is a beautiful deep pink color, with a slight shimmer. It is the perfect pink color for the summer and the packaging is lovely. I would defiantly recommend this to you all :-)


ELF Studio Powder Brush - Love this! The bristles are really dense, meaning it is really good for blending powders. I wouldn't recommend this for applying liquid foundation, although it is good for using after application, as it creates a lovely finish.


Barry M Ice Cream Nail varnishes (Blueberry & Strawberry) - These are cute colours, perfect for the summer. I do like the pink more than the blue (would have preferred the blue to be paler), but will defiantly be wearing both. At £2.90 each, you can't really go wrong.


ELF Studio Lip Balm - HATE THIS! It has the consistency of warm glue, awful. It shows every little crack on your lip and is anything but moisturizing. Do not waste your money buying this, the pink Vaseline is half the price and 10 times better!


Hope your all well & not stressing too much about exams!

PINK VASELINE?! where is this! but also, i LOVE coralista it's literally the best color :)

I have and adore that blusher too!
If you wanted blueberry ice cream to be paler, their new shade 'blue moon' might be exactly what you want :) x

Great purchases! The Benefit blush is such a pretty colour and oh thanks so much for the review on the ELF studio powder brush! I've been wanting to get it but wasn't sure if the hairs come off from the brush etc! I love the flat surface of it, seems like it would blend well with foundation :)

Pretty nail polish! and eek with the ELF lip balm! I have to agree with a few of their lipgloss first trial it wasn't sticky but after it starts to get sticky which I hate too! hahaha!

Good luck with your exams, I am totally stressing out with mine! ahhhhh :(

love the nail polish colours xxx

catflicks said...

that blusher looks great, benefit stuff always look amazing, and usually are! i hate when you get lip products and they show cracks in your lips! my lips are prone to flaking etc so it's difficult to find lip products!

I did love using Coralista, but I'm still undecided if I want to repurchase or not as I'm coming to an end...

And I got that blue Barry M polish for a friend this week!

Barry M have great nail polish colours ! I'm looking into buying a big heap of them from their website soon :) Especially the "Red glitter" one? I think thats what its called. I've heard people say it resembles Dorothy's Red sparkly shoes from the Wizard of Oz :)
