This is a little notebook that I got given today by some German visitors. The word means "moment or snapshot" I think its such a beautiful idea that life is filled with small and perfect moments so i've decided to write down some of the best times in it :)

Elf Haul and Review ♥

Okay so I have been running to get the post everyday to see if my products have arrived and yesterday they did! So I was super excited and spent so long trying them all out and swatching them for you when I should be revising so you better appreciate it! Here you go:


Eye Primer - £1.50

I purchased an eye primer in champagne- it is a almost purple colour and has quite a bit of shimmer through it which I'm not sure whether I like. . I've just tried this and in terms of keeping the eyeshadow on all day its great- especially for the price but due to the shimmer and the darker colour its quite hard to keep the eye looking tidy- would definitely recommend using concealer after.





Elf Contouring Blush and Bronzer in St Lucia - £3.75

This is a product which is raved about by so many of the beauty gurus on youtube and I really wanted to see whether it stood up to its claims. Apparently it is very similar to Nars and the packing definitely reflects that. I love that it has a big mirror so its perfect for on the go and for in your bag. I have quite pale skin and this doesn't look orange or muddy on me, its perfect. I love that the blush has some gold shimmer running through it and even though the bronzer side is matt for contouring it does have a little bit of shimmer in which really adds to that sunkissed glow.


Elf custom compact- Compact 1.50, single pans 45p each ( On Sale)

 I wouldn't have really been interested in this apart from the fact that each pan was only 45p! So obviously I had to get it! I bought the colours Wisteria ( the purple) Wheat ( the darker golden brown) Pink Ice ( the shimmery lighter colour) and a lip colour called Icing ( the pink)

Colours Left to Right: Icing, Wheat, Wisteria and Pink Ice
 
I absolutely love the eye shadow colours, they are so pigmented and not chalky and really last a long time. However the lip colour really disappointed me, I expected it to be much more vibrant when in fact it was more like a tinted lipbalm. This being said it was only 45p!
 
BeautyBook in Eye Brights Edition- £3.00 ( on sale)


When I saw this on the website I thought that most of the colours were matt however all 12 are super shimmery which I still love. This is kind of a hit and miss palette, some of the colours come off as actually quite creamy and are really pigmented whereas others are just like cement and are so powdery they just don't stay on the skin as you can see in my swatches. As I bought it at sale price I'm still quite happy but I would not but a different colour or limited edition at £3 instead I would probably go for an MUA palette. The packing was okay, because of the price I didn't expect it to be fantastic but in comparison to the Blush and Bronzing Contouring Powder which was only a little bit more expensive I did expect a little more.
 






Overall I'm actually super happy with my order, it came really quickly and I will definitely be repurchasing some of these products again :) For the price and the quality of the prouducts its a great brand!

So I did a little bit of shopping....

So in complete contrast to my other post about how I was going to be good and study until my exams... Well I did a tiny bit of shopping for things which I had to have!

I am going to review some of the products I picked up in either a blog post or a YouTube video do look out for that

Things I NEEDED OKAY:


Maybelline BB cream in the oily skin version- I have tried the normal version and I love it so I really want to see whether this stays on my skin longer and helps my spots ( which it claims to do)


Seventeen All Dolled Up mascara in brown- This is not a purchase I would have normally made but I had a boots voucher for this mascara for only £2 so thought I should get it. I originally got it in the black but the shop assistant switched it and I ended up getting it in the brown. I've been wearing this quite a lot and I have to say I really like it! Because of the low price tag I wasn't expecting much but if you love natural looking lashes then this is amazing- it stays on my oily eyelids but is easy to wash off :) Its definitely going in my everyday makeup bag for spring and summer!





Garnier PureActive Charcoal Scrub- I so excited when I happens the drugstore/high street was coming out with a charcoal based face product as I love the Michael Todd charcoals mask- it is incredible and my skin loves it! Unfortunately it is super expensive so I hope this lives up to my expectations

I also picked up:
Simple Makeup Wipes, Simple Hydrating Facial wash gel, Tressemm√© Platinum Strengh Shampoo and Tressemm√© Keratin Smooth Condiditoner.

BarryM Nail Effects Review

So I decided to branch out from my usual nail polishes and actually put some effort in for once!
 I decided to try out some of the BarryM nail effects paint as I had heard mixed reviews about them.


 I first applied a bright pink colour called...Bright Pink- what an inventive name, which I have worn several times on its own as it such a  perfect spring colour! I had to apply two coats of the pink to get the colour in the bottle.
Then I added the nail effects cracking nail polish in Black and then just applied a clear coat on top

I love the effect I think my nails look amazing but that black cracking coat was rather gloopy so I would advise putting it in the fridge before applying- it makes so much difference.


Hope you like the finished look!

I am happy to say like all BarryM nail paints the colour lasts extremely well if two or three coats are applied, With this design my nails lasted around 5 days before they started chipping so I am very pleased with the result
