the latest additions...

Apologies for not posting in a while, getting back into the swing of sixth form and work has been taking up all my time. Thought i'd do a sort of "catch up" post & share some products that I've been loving lately...
I have never used models own nail polishes before, so when the 50% sale was on i thought i'd take advantage... and i am so glad i did. They have a very similar to my all time faves (Barry M), but they last much much longer!
I really love all the colours i chose, my only regret is that i didn't buy more. The glitter polish jazzes up any plain colour & is so far my most used.
If you haven't tried this brand before, you should! They retail at £5 each, totally worth the price :-)


ELF also had a 50% off sale, which i couldn't resist. Above are the products that really impressed me (i bought a few things that were total crap, post soon).
The studio brushes are amazing, as always. I use the stipple brush to apply cream blushes, works so well. The black tube is the waterproof eyeliner pen which is AMAZING. Thinner than any other pen i have used, and works well on the top and bottom line.
The plumping lip glaze really does work, it leaves my lips tingling and looking fuller.


New favourite mascara, makes my lashes so much thicker and longer than any other mascara i have tried & is so cheap at £7.20 from Superdrug. Having tried a million and one mascaras over the past few months, this one will be a permanent fixture in my makeup collection.

Hope your all well!

The nail polishes are so pretty! especially Beth Blue & Coral Reef!! That's exciting about the elf sale! I have the blush & bronzer - however the bronzer is too dark for my skin tone so I sometimes use it as an eyeshadow crease but the blush is so pretty! X

They all look lovely, I used to love that mascara but always found that the wand broke! x

Thank you so much for posting about the ELF 50% off code! I've been desperate to get my hands on some ELF products for so long, and as soon as I saw your post last week I was straight in there! I ordered some of the brushes and some other bits and pieces, and I'm still waiting for them to arrive but I can't WAIT to try them out! I'm also desperate to get some Models Own polishes - I lovee the look of Disco Mix!

Seeing countless number of posts on the Model Own polishes, I'm so jealous! Wish I got some of the sale action! :(

I've tried the Colosal mascara, it was pretty impressive, shame about the not-so-attractive packaging xo
