Seventeen Phwoarr Paint

Working long hours and having a busy schedule is really taking its toll on my eyes lately! While on the prowl in Boots the other day I came across this 'Heavy Duty Under Eye Concealer' which just from the name sold it to me in hope that it would help me banish that under eye darkness!

This is a hardcore concealer that I sometimes apply using the tips of my fingers or with a flat brush if I'm not rushing around at 7am in the morning! It has a thick, creamy formula that banishes any under eye circles or darkness without looking too 'cakey' on the skin. I have the shade medium which is just right for my skin tone and over the last couple of weeks I have had a couple of unwanted new friends pop up on my face too (spots!) and it has also worked it's magic on concealing those too!

This is a great product that I can see being really popular to banish those under eye circles and also to use for more of a flawless look!

This product retails at a reasonable £5.49 and is available from Boots Online or In Store.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Hi Everyone, hope you have all enjoyed the gorgeous sunshine this week. I'm a sucker for 'Blogger Hypes' but never seem to get on the hype until I have seen a couple of reviews from some of my favourite Bloggers first. But after seeing so many great reviews on the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, it would be rude not to give it a try myself!

There are tonnes of Micellar Cleansing Waters available to buy and one of the most popular is Bioderma, I haven't tried this brand but my all time favourite Micellar Water has to be L'Oreal's Micellar Solution.
Micellar Water is a great little invention that feels just like water on your skin but removes your make up using a clever scientific magnet-like cleansing agents that help to capture and remove dirt away from the skin with ease.

I love this Micellar Cleansing Water as it feels so fresh on the skin, helping to remove my make up with ease and it also doesn't irritate my eyes which the majority of other cleansers do.
It's such a simple yet effective product that even gives you 200 uses in a 400ml bottle! So technically you could only be spending £4.99 for just over half a years use!

I really don't have much else to say about this product other than it's great, doesn't break the bank and most of all does exactly what it's meant to do!!

Easter in a Bottle | Models Own "Speckled Eggs" Collection

Top-Bottom: Goose, Dove & Magpie* 
Hi Lovelies hope you are all ok and enjoyed the gorgeous sunshine over the weekend. I have been very quiet again on my blog and only seem to be managing 1 post per week. Life has become rather hectic lately and when I think I'm going to have an hour spare to do some blogging there's always something to do; But finally I have an evening free to catch up on some writing... ** insert smiley emoji **

So when I see a surprise package arrive on my doorstep saying Models Own I'm always eagerly ripping it open with excitement! Models Own has to be one of my favourite nail polish brands and when I was opening this package I thought to myself 'What on earth could Models Own be releasing next' .... Queue Speckled Eggs!

Yes, so Models Own have released a nail polish that looks just like Mini Eggs, random you may think but I think this is such a freeekin amazing idea! Models Own have had some amazing nail polish collections over the past year but this has to be my favourite.
Pretty pastel colours speckled like Mini Eggs, these are the perfect shade for spring/summer and the speckled finish gives it a different edge.
The collection is available in 5 egg-tastic shades: Dove - A Cheeky Pink, Duck - A Cornflower Blue, Goose - A Mellow Yellow, Magpie - A Mint Green and Swan - A Dreamy Lilac.

Models Own never fails to please me and these nail polishes last for a good 4-5 days on my nails and you can wear them on their own without a top coat for an egg-like semi matte mottled finish or add a top coat for a glossy long lasting finish. I can't wait to wear all of the shades I have together for a cute Mini Egg Mani!!

The Models Own Speckled Eggs Collection is now available Online, in Models Own Bottleshops Worldwide and will be released in Superdrug from the 12th March and Boots from the 19th March.

KIKO Denim Nail Lacquer

Hi Everyone. Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I can't believe we are in March already! The countdown to my birthday has officially started! Whoooop.
KIKO is such a great little brand and my previous post was about the gorgeous glow lips and cheeks which I've religiously been wearing for the last couple of weeks.

Today it's all about nail polishes... We all know I'm a huge nail polish junkie and just the one shelf in my wardrobe is full of nail polishes! To add to my ever growing collection I have the shades 461 (red) and 465 (blue). First of all I'm a little disappointed that these nail polishes don't have names, it's not a biggie but I think it's super boring when just numbers are given to them and not super cool names.
If you haven't guessed it yet, these nail polishes have an 'on trend' denim effect. Nail effects have been really popular over the last year and I really do like the denim look as it isn't too matte and has a really cool look about it.

The red shade is a pretty vibrant red which I find the denim finish really compliments. I find glossy red nail polishes really don't suit me and look a little too 'old' looking on my nails, but this really suits me as it is more of a trendier red. As for the blue shade... it's blue! After 2 coats it doesn't seem to have covered as well as the red shade and could have done with possibly a 3rd coat. This is a pretty shade but I find a lot of the denim nail polishes out there are blue, so I much prefer the red shade as it isn't your common denim colour.
The drying time with these nail polishes is really good, it's not super quick but a lot quicker than most nail polishes I own! I also find they last for around 2-3 days on my nails, this would probably increase if a top coat is added but you would then loose the denim effect.

Overall I'm really happy with these nail polishes, the red shade is my favourite and I can see myself wearing it a lot this season. The only petty downside is that they don't have names!

These nail polishes retail at £5.90 and are available in 8 gorgeous shades. They are available in KIKO Stores and online at Kikocosmetics.com.
