June/July Buys

I seem to go through really random periods where I buy loads and loads of stuff and then nothing for oncoming weeks. 
Real Techniques Stippling Brush
Real Techniques Stippling Brush: I've heard so much great things about these make-up tools that I decided that I had to have one. I mostly use stippling brushes to apply my liquid foundation as I love the finish. I can't wait to use it, now that we are experiencing some hot weather I haven't had a chance to wear any make up! Au Naturel (sp?)
Tangy nails. Yum!
Tangy Tangerine
 Rimmel Tangy Tangerine Nail Polish: As I've mentioned in previous posts I've been on the hunt for the perfect summer orange and I happen to come across it in boots! I absolutely love this orange its so me in every single way as you can see from above in my nail of the week! :)

MissGuided. Misstify
MissGuided Nail Polish: I happened to be in Asda like a month ago, one evening waiting for the mother to finish her shopping and was snooping around the magazine aisle and saw this pink beauty glinting at me through a glossy cosmopolitan magazine, there were other colours but I chose the pink one, so naturally I just had to have it. I'm yet to try it but I love the fact that it came in such a cute box, pretty packaging is a winner in my books!

Rimmel Scandal eyes 'Show off' Mascara. Random Mango & Papaya Lip Gloss. Boujouir 3D effect Lipgloss  (03).  Maybelline expression kajal eyeliner. Maybelline Master Precise liquid eyeliner.

Rimmel Scandal eyes 'Show off' mascara
 Make-up er.. essentials?: I had a charity event dinner and wanted to look my best (you never know who is going to bring their beautiful looking heir to such events). I have always been a Rimmel mascara fan, but I decided to go for the 'Show off' mascara as it was on special offer and in my honest opinion Rimmel is yet to let me down! I absolutely love this mascara and its fast becoming one of my faves. It perfectly fans out your lashes, gives it lift and makes them look elegantly long, I always feel like I'm wearing my falsies with this mascara.
I also came across Maybelline's liquid eyeline Master Precise and this is another product I love - I made the move to felt tip liquid eyeliners about 6 months ago and this product by far is one of my favourite liquid eyeliners. It's so thin and provides just the amount of product and is actually quite precise!
The Boujouis 3D effect Lipgloss is also a really nice addition to the make-up family, it boasts an 8 hour wearing time, but if you factor in talking, eating, licking your lips etc its not at all going to last that long.

Essie Nail polishes
Essie Nail Polishes: I went to TK Maxx with my Aunt and was standing in the queue to pay, when I noticed these Essie Nail Polishes. I actually couldn't believe my luck as I had been on the hunt for an Essie Nail Polish for what seems like forever! It came in a pack of 3 and cost me £9.99 which is a bargain as most Essie Nail polishes start at £7, I'm still on the hunt for more so if anyone knows where I can get cheap Essie polishes from let me know (as Ebay has let me down).

Zebra crossing looking Peplum dress.
Zebra Crossing looking Peplum dress: This was the dress I wore for the charity event dinner I went for on behalf of the organisation I am volunteering with. Its from New Look and because I have quite big hips, thighs and bum it suited me really well!

So that's it for now, hopefully as I actually think I am going to place myself on a spending ban. Well until I get back to Uni at least.
