Superdrug...Vitamin E Night Cream

I'm not usually one for using night creams but my skin has been playing up a lot recently with dry patches everywhere that would just not shift and my usual daily moisturiser didn't seem to be making any difference to the dry skin but I didn't want to go on a hunt for another daily moisturiser so thought I'd give a night cream a go so picked this night cream up from the Superdrug Vitamin E range as its for normal to dry skin. I really like this cream it smells nice but not to heavy and it sinks in leaving my skin feeling lovely and soft and the best bit? It cleared up my dry skin in the matter of days which I'm so happy about ! I will definitely keep using this and be repurchasing once I have ran out. I cannot recommended this enough for people that suffer from dry skin. 

You can pick this up from Superdrug for £2.99 (Bargain!) and usually there are deals on this range and at the moment it's 3 for 2.

Maybelline...The Mega Plush Mascara

I was in need of a new mascara when I seen this new maybelline The Mega Plush mascara so thought I'd give it a go as I'm usually a big fan of Maybelline mascaras and this one is no different.

What maybelline say about this mascara ... Mega volume goes mega plush! Our first gel mousse mascara.
Our new formula with 40% less hard waxes* and flexor brush create massive lush volume. Soft to the touch. * Vs our classic volum' express mascara.

This mascara definitely does do what it's meant to. It gives amazing volume and length without clumping and your lashes do feel soft as if there is no mascara on them which I love as I hate when your lashes feel clumpy and hard and that makes it such a task to take off but this comes off quite easily considering it doesn't smudge etc during the day. The only thing I didn't agree on was the flexor brush, cant say I have noticed it flexing while I was applying the mascara but that's not really a big deal for me and I definitely will be buying this again as i love the way my lashes look when I have used this.

With two layers of the mascara
My barely there lashes.

You can pick this up from the likes of superdrug etc for £7.99 also superdrug are doing buy one get one half price on Maybelline products and boots are doing buy one get one half price on selected brands of make up!

Mua...Kiss Proof Lip stain

I had never tried a lipstain before so thought I'd give the Make Up Academy ones a go. I got mine in shade kissalicious. Unfortunately I really didn't like this it is just so drying on your lips and my lips are normally quite dry so I'm not wanting to apply anything that will only make matters worse. I also found that it wasn't very noticeable on my lips, actually I would go as far to say It didn't look like I had anything on my lips but maybe that is due to the colour of my lips but im not entirely sure. I would have maybe bought another shade to try but as I said they seem to be very drying so think I will give them a miss. 

You can pick this up from Superdrug or order online at http://www.muastore.co.uk/ For £3.00 (not including delivery if ordering online)

Excuse The Rant.

This is most definitely not a beauty related post but more of a I'm frustrated so I shall share kind of post and see how many people agree haha. 

I used to have a blackberry curve mobile which at the start was great but I got bored of it quite quickly as I didn't think the apps were great and I kept having problems with the phone but unfortunately I was on a two year contract so I had to deal with it. After my contract was finally ending the iphone 5 was getting released so I decided I wanted that phone cause everyone always raves about how good iphones are compared to blackberrys but no one told me about the battery life??!! Soo this is my rant, the battery life. It is a great phone don't get me wrong and I do prefer it over the blackberry curve but for a phone that is built to be used all the time the battery life is terrible ! Whenever I'm in the house my phones never off charge and I'm afraid the battery's going to end up just dying completely with it being over charged (if that can happen) and another thing that drives me mad is where the charger goes in at the bottom it's just so awkward when you're trying to use it when it's charging so no doubt my charger will be needing replaced soon as its starting to show wear arghhh ! 

I do apologise for my mad turn but I felt like sharing my frustrations and seeing if other people agree (which I'm sure there will be ). I shall try not to do another rant post any time soon but I can't promise anything ! 

Thank you for reading.

Glamour Magazine With Freebie !

Im a huge fan of Glamour magazine I get it every month and look forward to its release day (as sad as that may be) i especially look forward to it when a freebie is involved and this month it's freebie time yayy ! The freebies are by a make up brand called Model Co and you can get either an eyeliner,lipgloss,mascara or lip liner so I chose the eyeliner. I haven't ever tried anything from this brand but I must say their eyeliner is actually a really good bold black that glides on easily and it also has a sharpener in the lid which is handy. I think I'm going to pick up another magazine to give the other freebies a try and this month glamour is £1 instead of £2 soo it's a total bargain  especially when the make up with the magazine are worth around £15 each ! Great read and a nice new make up product for a pound ? Can't ask for much better in my books ! 

Thank you for reading.

Barry M...Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint

Without flash

This is the first of the gelly range I have tried and I absolutely love it ! The one I bought is called blueberry which is a lovely blue colour. It definitely does give the lovely hi shine gel effect  it claims to give sooo I'm very happy with my recent purchase and can't wait to try out more. I won't comment on lasting power as I do believe it just depends on the individual.
