Feeling Knackered...............

I had heard so many good things about Butter London polishes but had never tried them before, So when i was in town the other day I popped in to Harvey Nichols where they do such a huge rangr of Butter London Polishes and decided on two to get Black Knight and Knackered.

Knackered is from their new 2012 Spring/Summer collection and is a beautiful Duo chrome silver with stunning hints of green and purple in it, which can be as subtle or as vibrant as you wish depending on how many coats you apply and how the light hits it. I love this shade due to the difference in colour and how it is changing all the time plus has such pretty glitter specks in it as well, and when it catches the light looks pretty amazing

The packaging on Butter London is cute as well, very simple but still cute and they apply and dry like a dream! Next time i'm in town I will be stocking up on more, especially from their latest collection as Disco Biscuit looks incredible!

Do you own any Butter London Polishes?

A Little Haul

Bck2Front 'Intimacy''Pink'VintagePink'Glazed Pink'Chiffon'

L-R 'Glazed Pink'Chiffon'Pink'Intimacy'Vintage Pink'

So past couple of weeks I have bought a few things and got some things for presents and I was gonna do one big post on them but I thought I would break it down over several posts,as not to bore everyone.So this is the first one.

Lord & berry
Received some Lord & Berry Products from a friend at work for my birthday, and I am in love they are all lipsticks, and even the lipstick pencils are sooo creamy and moisturising i love them,they last for hours on my lips as well. The colours she gave me are the ones I would of picked for myself as well. I love the packaging think it just looks very simple and classic. I will definitely be buying some more from their range, as Mac are my favourite brand for Lipsticks but I think these could be a close second if not a joint first. The lipstick pencils are in the shades 'Vintage Pink' 'Pink' and 'Intimacy'
and the Lipsticks are 'Glazed Pink' and 'Chiffon'


I had a little spree in M.A.C the other day and saw the Daphne Guinness collection and saw this stunning ombre blush in 'Azalea Blossom' and knew I just had to get it, it is Beautiful, and gives a lovely flushed colour to my cheeks and so easy to blend in and build up as well.

Nail Polishes
Butter London 'Black Knight' - A STUNNING black based polish filled with multi coloured glitter flicks I love this, find it looks better over 1 coat of a black polish though
Butter London ' Knackered'-A pretty duo chrome with glitter specks in it, have not got a polish like this so i love it
O.P.I Rapid Dry Top Coat- Amazing, drys in an instant!
Nails Inc 'Hampstead Gardens- A different shade for me but i love it,and is nice and glossy on my nails

Have you got any of thse shades?Collections? What do you think?

A New Holy Grail??

So a couple of  weeks I was looking round my local boots for a new daily foundation and saw that Bourjois have a new Healthy Mix Foundation out 'Healthy Mix Serum' which is described as a gel foundation and then I saw that if you bought it you got a free mascara and I will hold my hands up and say some of my all time favourite mascaras are from Bourjois so I grabbed a bottle and off I trotted.

I have been using this every day ever since and i have to say i have finally found my perfect drugstore foundation and one I will be re -purchasing again and again no doubt, at first the slim bottle I thought 'oh thats going to run out soon' but noo I only need a very little amount on the back of my hand and the coverage is amazing, I don't think it is a 'Gel' as such just a normal liquid foundation but gives me coverage like I have not had before, and I guess you could call my skin 'Combination' I have some oily bits and some not so oily so I was wondering how this would be and it is amazing just gives full even coverage all over and doesn't leave my skin feeling dry like some foundations do.

The only downside I don't like which is nothing major but the smell has a very subtle scent of vanilla which at first is a bit odd but as soon as it's on my skin and buffed in no problems. With how easy it is to apply and how little you need I would liken this to a Tinted Moisturiser, but I will be sticking with this from now on.
Oh and the Mascara I chose was the Coup de Theatre which is a false lash effect and it is pretty damn amazing, am i surprised though? NO. Love their Mascara they never ever fail to disappoint.

Do you have the original Healthy Mix? Have you tried this one? What are your thoughts?

NOTD -Jessica Holographic Top Coat

So thought I would do my first NOTD post with one of my polishes from Nath for Christmas which is Jessica Holographic top coat in gold, and at first just looks plain top coat then I twigged there was a little sticker on the side which says shake fast before using and taa daaa all this stunning gold dust comes floating around.

I couldn't decided what colour to paint it over then decided I'll go for China Glaze's Liquid Leather as being Hologrpahic is always going to look best with a black base and omg i friggin LOVE it, at first it's very subtle but then in daylight you see all these stunning specks of different colours :) Really gives a cool funky edge to a plain base. Can not wait to try this over other colours.

What polishes/combinations are you liking?
