Recent purchases- mini reviews

L'Oreal Ultimate Blends dry shampoo with Vanilla Milk for mid to long hair
I recently bought this expecting great things as I've tried their shampoo and conditioner in the same range and love them(still half price at Boots too!-grab em soon! This was a bit meh! It smelt quite nice and added volume to my hair but it didn't really take away the greasy look (from 3 day old hair) like my batiste does.

Barry M Prickly Pear Gelly nail polish
I LOVE this polish; I love all the Barry M Gelly polishes to be fair, but this one is beautiful! The fact that the name 'Prickly Pear' reminded me of Jungle Book (Can you pick a paw-paw or a prickly pear?) probably helped a lot too! I really like these bright pastely colours for summer, and the Gelly polishes stay on well too.

Bourjois healthy mix foundation in No.52 Vanilla
I bought this about 6 weeks ago by mistake- I had meant to buy the healthy mix serum that I hear raved about a lot on the inter-webs- but I'm glad I go this! It's by far my favourite foundation to date, it's a light to medium coverage, the cover matches me really well and I don't mind the fresh, floral scent! Also it doesn't cling to dry patches/ stay too oily! A definite winner.

Soap and Glory 'Super Colour Fabu-lipstick in 'Pom Pom matte'
This was a very recent purchase but I already love it, I'm a big fan of matte lipsticks and lip tints but it's really hard finding ones that don't dry your lips out- or make them look dry. This one doesn't at all and I really like the gorgeous deep pinky colour. I wasn't expecting the packaging to be so nice either- but it feels really luxurious (if that's the right word) compared to other high street brand's packaging.

Eyeko Skinny liquid eyeliner in Black
I received this free with Glamour magazine earlier this month as quite a few bloggers did and luckily I found the black one! I've seen a lot of people not liking this? They have been saying it's quite dry or hard to use. Personally I haven't found that at all! While it's not the most amazing liquid liner in the world it's certainly not bad and just as good as the ones I buy in boots for £5! So overall, a good gift in my opinion!

What's been your favourites this month? Have your tried any of these things? What did you think?


  1. Thanks for checking out my blog:)
    You have so many different cosmetic products there compared to Canada.

  2. I have the healthy mix and I find it to be a good drugstore brand to use on days off when I don't want to wear my high end make up! :)
