Spring Nails

I ventured into Superdrug recently and ended up buying a lot of things, as usual. Barrry M have bought out a new Aquarium range (what will they think of next?!).
 There's 6 colours, 2 of which are glitter and the other 4 are a metallic type retailing at £3.99 each which is still a bargain for such good nail varnish.

There were only 3 colours left in Superdrug so I picked up the two I liked best. 'Arabian' which is a green/blue metallic and 'Mermaid' which is a blue glitter.

The other two colours I picked up were from the Gelly Hi Shine range which is also £3.99. Id wanted a royal, bright blue for a while and the picture of 'Blue Grape' doesn't do the colour justice; its so bright.
The other colour 'Green Berry' is a bright turquoise and looks so much more vivid and pigmented once painted onto your nails. 

With Barry M I find 2 coats is ample but 3 creates a brighter colour but lasts just as long. I'm yet to discover a brand of nail varnish I like even more when it comes to price and quality.

Mini Beauty Haul

Hey Guys! I haven't blogged in a while due to a hectic university timetable but I have been shopping!
I bought myself some new glasses and a lush iPad Mini (check my Instagram)
but I've been buying some gorgeous new beauty products so I thought I'd share them.

Benefit - They're Real Mascara £19.50
 I avoided trying this mascara for so long because I couldn't justify the high price but when I gave in and bought I understood the hype! I love it and it WILL be repurchased!
(Price too high? - Try the mini versions sold in Boots)

Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer in Light - Here at Superdrug
I decided to give this under eye concealer a go after watching countless YouTube videos featuring in it. I've used other drug store under eye concealers but I definitely like this one as it suits my skin tone more and covers my dark circles really well!

New MAC lipsticks, Yay!!
I re-purchased So Chaud in Amsterdam recently after losing the one I bought in Canada last summer which I was annoyed about. I love this colour, it's a coral -red.
I really wanted to stray from my comfort zone of red lipsticks so I went onto the MAC website and bought Girl About Town and Flat Out Fabulous. 
Girl About Town is a purpley pink amplified colour and Flat Out Fabulous is a retro matte, deep berry colour (my favourite so far).

With Flash - £15 each

Without Flash

I previously used a Barry M eyebrow definer gel wand to set my eyebrows but because i was clear it sometimes took the colour of the hairs of my eyebrows so I bought this Benefit Speed Brow.
It was pricey at £13.50 for such a small wand and amount of product (
3.0g Net wt. 0.10oz)
However, I'm impressed with it! Its colour isn't too dark and coats my brows eventually and keeps them set all day. I highly recommend trying this.

Hello March

Hello March, and Hi guys!
I love these pictures you can find on Tumblr and We Heart It that welcome in each month.
They depict peoples perceptions of the month that follows and for some reason, I like that!
(Also less than a month until my birthday yay)
