Beauty Purchases

Topshop & Ruby and Millie.

31 May, 2011

This week it’s 20% off Topshop with a student card, so I have taken advantage! I’ve mentioned before I’m a massive fan of Topshop blushers and although I’m new to cream blushers and have more faith in powder blushers, I absolutely love the colours of the Topshop cream blushers! I already have Pinch and Neon Rose, so I knew I had to add Flush to my collection (and what a collection it is). It’s a lovely coral pink, and I…

May Favourites.

&. The Sanctuary 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask: I purchased this recently with a £5 off discount voucher from Boots and I’ve been using it a lot ever since.

27 May, 2011

So I splashed out on a Chanel blusher in 99 Rose Petale after a massively awful day at work!

Nail Girls: Thoughts.

26 May, 2011

I don’t often post about anything nail-related, mainly because I don’t really look after my nails (although I have booked a spa manicure, whatever that is, so stay tuned!) and also because I feel that most blogs already cover the nail side of things. I haven’t, however, seen anything on this reasonably new brand called Nail Girls. Nail Girls say “Our colours are a superior formula, free from any harmful chemicals. (toluene, formaldehyde, DBP (phthalates) and camphor) They are not…
