Nail Polish Galore!

Saturday, 8 November 2014

Hello everyone!

I know it has been a ridiculous amount of time since my last blog post, which is not right! It's the usual reason of just being too busy. I really want to find a way to blog regularly while having a busy schedule. Any ideas anyone?

 I want to try and post more regularly now since Christmas is coming up to and I'm so excited to try out some nice Christmas nail art designs and makeup looks.

Anyways, I went to town today and might have spent too much money again! I bought a bunch of nail polishes and other bits. I wanted to invest in some silver and gold polish for some Christmas nail art designs that I want to try and do. Still need to think up some ideas though. So I only wanted to buy a silver nail polish, but then ended up buying 5 other nail polishes... *sigh*

In my defence, Boots was having a 3 for 2 sale on a lot of brands, so it would be rude not to take advantage of that deal, right? lol

I bought around 4 colours for Christmasy designs and the two other colours were colours that I wanted to try out from Bourjois because I have never tried their nail polishes before.

I also managed to buy the latest issue of Glamour magazine where you get a free Nails Inc nail polish. Now, this is a real BARGAIN because Nails Inc nail polishes are usually around £11 each and Glamour magazine only costs £2. Couldn't say no to this. Their polishes are good, I have tried one of their polishes before and I liked it and also like the brush that you apply the polish with. 

To top it all off, you also get an H&M 20% off voucher to, does it get any better with this magazine.?They really know how to make their magazines sell. So make you get their latest issue to get this bargain :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend all :)

Deborah Milano Eyeshadows Review and Swatches

Saturday, 4 October 2014

Hey all. How are we doing today?

Today's post is about the make up brand called Deborah Milano. They are a leading name in the Italian cosmetics and skin care market and want to branch out into the UK.
 They approached me on Twitter and asked if I wanted to try
 out their products.

They kindly sent me 2 eyeshadows along with some samples of their foundations and lipstick, which was really nice of them since I was only expecting the two eyeshadows.

They were kind enough to even let me choose which 2 eyeshadow shades I wanted. So I headed over to their site. It was difficult to choose just 2 because I love eyeshadow! 

So I decided to choose my favourite colour and another vibrant shade. The name of the shades I chose were Violet and Peacock. 

These are called the 24Ore Velvet Eye Shadow.

From left to right: Violet and Peacock.

Shade: Peacock

Shade: Violet

The colours are gorgeous! Wait till you see the swatches!
I have swatched them with flash and no flash as well as with primer and without primer.

Now here are the swatches using a primer...

These eyeshadows both swatch beautifully! My favourite colour is purple but the greeny peacock shade looks so nice and vibrant! I'm pretty happy with the shades I picked! They are colourful and
 easy to apply on the lids. I always use an eye primer on my eye lid before I apply any eyeshadow, but it still looks fine without.

To make it better, these eyeshadows are so afordable to! 

That's awesome if you ask me! ;) 

I did not pay for these eyeshadows, but my opinions are honest. I would pay for these eyeshadows any day. 

Even more fabulous news they are currently having a 50% off all their eyeshadows on their site. That is incredible because their eyeshadows are already so affordable! This is a bargain!
These eyeshadows are usually sold for £5.50 each. 
But, if you go to their site now, you can get it for half price!

They have a big sale going on till the end of October! So be sure to check them out asap! :)

Enjoy beauty shopping ladies! :D
