Beauty buys

I haven’t blogged for a little while, I’m sorry to say. I have been so busy with work and things so its been tricky to find the time. But, I’m well and truly back to it! Promise.

I thought it would be good to share my most recent favourite beauty purchases.



Firstly, I found this gloss and shine product by Tony and Guy, I have never tried any of their products or had my hair cut with them before so I am only going on hearsay. I’m usually a committed frizz ease customer. I use it as an attempt to make my often, frazzled split ends soft and silky. At nearly £1 cheaper (I know, bargain!) I thought I’d give Tony and Guy a go.


I’m getting on with it quite well. I prefer the smell of the frizz ease one but this is much lighter and it seems to last the whole day without building up, keeping a nice shine all day.


The next one is this nail varnish by Rimmel, colour black cherries. It is a great alternative to a black. that can sometimes be quite harsh. It also picks up on the metallic trends going around at the moment.
I find it perfect with creams and whites. I bought a new cream quilted sweater (I will blog about in the next few days) which I wore with my freshly painted nails today. I think the colour contrast is perfect and adds a subtle pop of colour in a really subtle, soft way. I also love love love the fact that these dry in 60secs! It’s a must have!


Lastly, is the latest addition to my lipstick family. Again, it’s another beauty from our friends at Rimmel.


Even the name is perfection…tantrum.
I was looking for a deep red lipstick, that still has a pinky tone as I find my complexion best suits the pinker tones. I find it is far less harsh. This one lasts almost the entire day, which is amazing as I almost always have to constantly top up with other brands I’ve tried.



So there we have it, my most recent beauty buys.

Barry M Nail Pen

So far, I have yet to get on the bandwagon of the latest nail art craze. I have obviously seen different designs and products in all my usual fashion mags and have been meaning to get involved for a while.

Well I accidentally, broke my spending ban yesterday when I was on my, what has become an almost daily trip to Boots. I was actually searching for one of the new gelly varnishes from BarryM but found they had completely run out. Gutted.

But, all was not lost. I discovered the different colour nail art pens they have to offer. I actually nearly went for a models own one as it was in a cute little box(I know that is completely irrelevant) and it had little instructions on how to use the two applicators, which I quite liked as a new user. They also had loads of really fun, summery pastel colours.

I finally decided to go for the BarryM plain black one in the end as it was £2 cheaper(save the penny’s) and I did think that as a first time experiment that may well turn into a one time thing, it was probably best to go with the cheaper,simpler option.

This is my first time effort, turns out I am possibly the least ambidextrous person ever. I had fun doing it though, I would definitely recommend having a pop.
What do you think? Is it worth me investing in other colours?
