Primark's Fast Dry Nail Spray.

Saturday, 18 April 2015

I picked this lil beauty up from a recent shop at primark, you can read about my haul here. It was only 80p and it looked rather intriguing. I'm always wearing nail polish and a spray to make your nail polish dry faster made me curious to see if it actually worked or not. Usually I wear Barry M Nail Polishes as I'm  obsessed with them and they dry pretty quickly when compared to other nail polishes on the market. One layer of Barry M usually only takes a minute or two to dry and thats okay for me, but I have to normally put two to three coats on depending on the colour! And the faster I can do an activity without smudging my nails, the better. 

I simply put on three layers of polish without stopping inbetween to dry and took this spray out and spritzed it on each nail. It says to let it dry for one minute before touching the nail. Now after one minute with three coats of nail varnish on, it's still pretty smudgy but if you watch closely, you can actually see it drying your nails. Yes. I watched paint dry. The spray is what I would describe as an oily texture. It's quite a horrible feeling but it's suppose to give you a glossy look. Which isn't needed with Barry M's gel paints but what the hell. Because of the oily feel, its alittle bit hard to tell if the nail is dry or not. But after two to three minutes, which seemed like a long time, all of my nails were dry and all I had to do was wash off the left over residue.

For three coat of nail varnish all whacked onto a nail and then to dry three minutes later was great!
I'm usually a bit hesitant when it comes to Primark make-up and hair care since I bought hair chalks and they were pretty poop to be honest but since then they've come a long way and I've been loving their make-up range.

50 Shades of MAC

 Pink Nouveau // Coral Bliss // Peach Blossom  MAC Lipsticks* £15.50 each.

A few weeks ago I had been told that I was the winner of Kirsty's MAC giveaway! I didn't just win 1 lipstick, I won three of these bad boys. I was over the moon. Kirsty told me I could choose which colours I wanted and I went with these three beautiful summer shades. Pink Nouveau is a bright satin pink, a shade that I wouldn't normally wear and I will blog about it in a separate post. Coral and Peach are subtle shades of nudes which I adore and go with any outfit that I fling onto myself. (I get dressed in the dark, which is why I'm not a fashion blogger..... kidding!)

I have to admit. I've been pretty lucky with MAC lipsticks. I have a total of 5 lipsticks and all of them I've won. Yep! That's right. I've never bought a MAC lipstick. Mainly because I can't justify buying a £15 lipstick with little money I have but the lipsticks I do have, I love and find myself reaching for them all the time. Maybes one day I will buy one from MAC but I will just enjoy the ones I have now.

What are your favourite shades of MAC Lipstick and have you ever won anything from blog competitions?

You've got my heart Primark.

I love a bit of retail therapy. Don't you? I went to Primark the other day for some summery accessories and just to have a parouse. I did get a couple of clothing items but this was the majority of it. I'm not loving the pineapples and flamingos everywhere but that's just my taste. I did grab a few goodies a couple of weeks ago but I won't include them in this post.
I am obsessed with their gold dainty jewellery. I'm pretty sure 70% of my jewellery is from primark right now and the candles! OMG THE CANDLES. They smell uh-maze-ing. I just want them all. I also have a few bits of makeup that made me go hmmmm. So I will be reviewing them soon but here is what I got;

PS Love Your Hair Conditioner - £1.50
PS Love your Nails Fast Dry Spray - 80p
Watermelon Lemonade Candle - £1
Liquid Foundation Brush - £1.50
Nail Varnish Corrector Pen -£1
Fashion Nails - £1
4 Shade Eyeshadow -£2.00
Dainty Heart Necklace -£1.50
Pack of 8 Rings - £3
3 Bracelets -£2
Floral Headband - £3

 I also took these photos with my iphone so sorry for the quality!

The Watermelon Lemonade candle smells divine. Like I should be sipping cocktails and eating fruit salad in my back garden. I've been dying my hair alot quite recently so I thought I would give the Moisturizing Conditioner a try out and I picked up the fast dry spray because 1. it was 80p and 2. I wanted to see if it really worked. Keep an eye out for a blog post about it soon! It was so hard to find an eyeshadow palette that wasn't covered in makeup at the stand, but this beautiful eyeshadow palette as some beautiful green hues and I wanted to be a bohemian flower girl so I bought a headband with dainty pink roses and gold leafs and it just oozes summer when I place it upon my head.

Have you purchased anything from Primark lately and did you blog about it? Link me in the comments. ^_^

Conceal, don't feel.

Friday, 10 April 2015

Hello! As you can see I've had a bit of a layout change and I'm slowly making my way back into blogging. How lovely has the weather been so far? I feel like cracking open a bottle of strawberry cider and sitting in my backyard with a good book. Anyhooo. I went into my local superdrug to purchase my concealer from MUA but the store didn't have any at all, (I must do a online shop at some point because hello sale) and I spotted the Prime and Conceal Palette by MUA and I was intrigued. I have so many blemishes on my face that some days I just feel like putting on a paper bag and drawing a face on it. Unwanted red cheeks, purple undereyes, and weird yellow tones around my nose. Please be gone!

I've been using my Prime and Conceal for a few days now and I can honestly say that I love it. I can see my blemishes go away straight after I put it on. I'll explain what each correcting cream colour does as I got a bit confused myself when I first bought it. 

Lilac - Mutes and highlights yellow undertones
Green - Neutralizes and reduces redness
Yellow - Brighten and conceals purple tones
Peach - Adds Radiance
Middle Colour - Highlights

I've used the Green and Yellow the most out of  my palette for my under eyes and various red areas on my face and it works wonders. The Prime and Conceal also comes in individual colours which I will be purchasing soon as I can see myself running out of this palette. Of course you must put your normal concealer and foundation on top to avoid a multi colour complexion. My undereyes are a bit stubborn and the purple didn't want to fade at all so its good to mix some of the colours together to get your desired effect. Overall, I'm super pleased with this product. It's currently on sale at £3 on the website and £4 in stores.
