This is the beauty products i was the most excited about receiving as i am a nail polish junkie! I have so many i have lost count! When i found these on Elf i couldn’t resist and had to buy it! What did i buy? 14 nail polishes! I might sound mad to you all but these 14 nail polish come in a cube for £15! You get a light cube and a dark cube! I got the lighter one to start off with as its more the colours i wear on a day to day basis! I thought £15 for 14 of them was amazing value as i tend to buy essie and barry m, and for essie it is about £8 just for 1! They apply on so easily and you guys are all missing out!

If any of you would like a closer look at them or to see what some look like on, just give me a comment below or tweet and i will do that for you!
I hope you enjoyed my beauty haul and i will have another elf haul, very very soon! Excited to hear from you!
I have heard a lot of people rave about highlighting sticks for your skin and i never understood exactly why they were made! I used to use a white eye shadow which done the job for me perfectly fine! When i went onto ‘elf’ though i found a cheap highlight and decided id buy it and see what the difference would be! It cost me £1.50 which is amazing as the one i have heard people rave about is the MAC highlight which is about £18 and i didn’t want to splash out on something i wouldn’t like or would’t use!
I will insert the photos first then tell you about why i have fallen in love with this!
Firstly, the all over cover stick basically does what it says on the packaging, it can be used all over your face for a natural glow or can be used to highlight the main parts of your face! I use mine for cheek bones, below eye brows and sometimes on the inner of my eyes to make them pop! Second of all for me it stays on for a good amount of time, i usually throw it in my make up bag and apply every so often if i feel myself i need a touch up! Lastly, it smells of refreshers the sweets! I kid you not! When i first received it i wanted to eat it more than apply it, and that isn’t right for a make up to smell so tasty!
I recently came across a website called, elf. Elf stands for ‘eyes, lips and face’, clever huh? And it sells affordable make up which ranges from £1.50 to £30. It’s an absolute bargain! I’m in love with this website and bought a few things to try out first! I would of bought more but I would of bought everything off the website and my bank balance wouldn’t be to happy if i had! I have separated my haul into three parts as there is a few photos and don’t want to confuse a lot of you.
I’m going to do these products in categories of what they are! So, ill start off with the lip glosses bought! These are very similar packaging to the Clinique chubby sticks which are £17/£22! I bought mine for £2.50! Which I thought was a complete bargain! I obviously done my research before hand about these beautiful glosses but decided I’d trust my own advice and bought them myself! I bought two and they are called, ‘ coco loco’ and ‘ flirty and girly’. ( photos below)
(Right, ‘flirty and girly’ and left ‘ coco loco’)
The ‘flirty and girly’ lip gloss stick is my favourite! It is pink and has a hint of shimmer/glitter through the gloss! It applies so easily and you notice the difference straight away! It’s easier to apply as its a stick and fills more of your lip faster and quicker than a normal lipstick would with a small wand! ‘Coco loco’ may not be my favourite but it is still a beautiful shade! I’d say its quite light and more brown/pink than the other gloss! It’s more a mature colour so would be great even for wearing to work just for that little hint of shine on your lips, not to vibrant but you still feel more confident with a colour on your lips! Below are some skin testers of the products!

Why not go on my next blog post for the ‘elf highlighting stick’ you are going to love it! 😉
My review today is on the new ‘mua’ nail polish. What attracted me to this product was the packaging as it is very similar to ‘Essie’ a more expensive nail polish! And did I mention ‘mua’ is only £1! What a bargain!
As you can see in the photo I took, the bottling is almost identical to Essie products! (You can see the Essie bottle on one off previous posts). A glass bottle with the product name carved into it. It’s a small dinky bottle and is great for taking on your travels!
Now onto the product itself! I got a sky blue colour! First thing I noticed when I opened the packaging was that the nail polish is quite watery which wasn’t great if I’m honest! It applied quite lightly at first so had to reapply the polish 2/3 times for the finish i got ( see photo above).
I do recommended this but I do warn you it might not be for everybody’s taste! I’m still not sure, myself if I will be purchasing another nail polish from this range! Not everything in MUA are bad though! I am loving the eye palettes and nail art products you can buy! It’s cheap and affordable and great if your just starting your makeup collection! Tell me what you think!
Today I am doing a review on the ‘Urban Decay, Naked 2 palette’. For a long time now I have wanted this and now I finally have my hands on one, I can tell you all about this amazing product!
This palette for starters is very sturdy, the better packaging the more people it will attract and it definitely attracted me, along with the 12 gorgeous nude/dark shades you get in it! Plus as a bonus I got a free lipgloss which I’d also recommend, it tingles when you apply the pink shade and goes on very easy and has a great lasting effect!
Next I will go onto the eye shadows. Out of every eye palette I own, and I do own a lot of them! This has to be my favourite by far! That amazing I didn’t want to use it at first as it was just to pretty to use! But, obviously I did use it in the end and my gosh I’m glad I did! The shadows apply on very easy with the brush/blending brush you get in the palette. My three favourites at the moment are, half baked, snakebite and ydk! The three blending together suit my eye perfectly! I’d definitely give it a go!
I haven’t tried out any different techniques yet with the other shadows, but I am definitely going to be! And in the upcoming weeks will be putting up different blog posts on my eyes with the different shades! I am excited as you are to see what wonderful and creative ways I can use this beautiful platte!
