BIRTHDAY GIFTS TO MYSELF


As you may have noticed on twitter or instagram it was my 19th birthday on Thursday. I had a pretty chilled day blogging then went out for a meal with my parents in the evening, but inevitably when I popped into town around lunching the birthday bug got the better of me and I treated myself to a few bits from Boots and Superdrug. In fairness, I had received a Boots voucher from my aunt in the morning so it was an apt time to spend it. 

First up I went into Superdrug and bought yet more Barry M nail polishes. I seriously cannot rave about this brand enough, super cheap, huge colour range, and the formula of the polishes lasts really well on my nails. I already own three of their Speedy Quick Dry polishes, but when I noticed the hot watermelon shade called Get Set Go I knew it had to come home with me. As it was 2 for £6 I thought I might as well get 2 and treat myself so I also bought this gorgeous mint shade (kind of mint candy apple-esque) called Road Rage. I currently have Get Set Go on my toe nails and Road Rage on my fingernails. The formula of this is thin yet opaque, which I think is one of the reasons my nails cling to the polish so well. Anyway, must move on now because I literally could rave about this forever! 

After my browse and purchase in Superdrug I headed to Boots, which in my city is literally 2 shops down which is always dangerous (but handy when comparing deals). I've managed to finish my second bottle of the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in Light Porcelain, so that was high on my list of priorities to get. Again I could rave about this forever, but it's main selling points for me are its price, light/buildable coverage and natural looking finish. I was also on the look out for a new concealer as my Collection Lasting Perfection is on its last legs. I've seen quite a few bloggers including Gh0stparties and Emma from Girl With Makeup raving about the Seventeen Stay Time concealer, and from what I've tried so far I've been very impressed! I'll get back to you with my full review at some point. Finally I picked up the Collection Extreme Felt Tip Liner which is my favourite black eyeliner, it's easy to apply and the black colour is nice and intense. Again something I needed to repurchase as mine has run out - does anyone else find all their bits tend to run out at the same time?! 

Have you tried any of this products?

  6. Although I only own Eat My Dust, I really want to try more of the Speedy Quick Dry range from Barry M as I love the formula of this one and it lasts for ages! Road Rage looks lovely and I've had a look at the Seventeen concealer so would love to know how it matches up to Collection's Lasting Pefection :) hope you had a lovely birthday! x
