Avon Lipstick Haul & Swatches

Hiya Lovelies!
I recently made an Avon purchase that I am completely over the moon with, so thought I'd share it all with you!
*If you like lipstick, stay tuned! This is all lip!*

Reduced to £2.50
So this is the first lipstick I bought is one of Avon's 24k lipsticks in 'Rosy Gold'.
Its a really pretty natural looking pink, with gold flecks in it. So, so pretty! The consistency is lovely too, and really quite moisturising!
The next three I bought were not only bargains, but complete and utter surprises!
They are from the 'Colourtrend' range at Avon, which to be honest, before now I though were rubbish. I've bought a couple of eye shadows from that range in the past and didn't think they were all that, but these lippy's are the complete opposite, and I love everyone of them!
They were buy one, get two free!! So I got these next three lipsticks for a grand total of £3.25!!
 Rich Ruby
 Doll Pink
And that's that!
Overall I am really pleased with every lipstick I purchased, and will most definitely be trying out some of the other Colourtrend range, including more of their lipsticks!

Youtube Channel!

So, I have decided to set up a new YouTube channel.
I did have on previously but nothing really ever felt right on there, and I just felt like I
wasn't really progressing anywhere with it.
I now have a new channel, that already, I am 100% happier with, and I've only uploaded one video!
I would very much like you all to subscribe to it!
It's just a little place where I like to put hauls, monthly favourites, empties, etc!

NOTW - Lets get the neon out!

*I'm not entirely sure that the pictures really do this justice, but here we go anyway!*
Its not quite summer yet but I bought this yesterday and couldn’t resist trying it out straight away! I got this from Primark in a set of 4 for £2! (which makes this polish only 50p – yes 50p!).

Anywho I’m really impressed with the colour payoff and the application of it. It took two coats, mainly just because I wanted it really bright, but it could have easily sufficed with one coat if you wanted a quick pop of colour!
I was really quite surprised how bright it did turn out I mean for £2 for 4 polishes, you don’t really expect a lot, but I really like it! I bought this set yesterday in Primark because I’m trying to curb my need for the models own neon ice collection, and to be honest its working. Which I’m really pleased about because as much as I’d love them, I don’t particularly have a spare £20 odd quid lying around.

I think this set is going to be great in the summertime, and I believe I will be getting a lot of use out of it.
Products used:
Sally Hansen - Double Duty
Primark Beauty nail polish - Neon Pink
Avon nail experts - Revitacool base coat
The whole set. £2!!

Oh my gosh, a nail of the week post!? (New layout)

Yes. This is indeed a nail of the week post! It has been a while since I did one of these, but to be honest its been a while since I've done any decent blogging so, instead of boring you all, we're just get onto the post. :)

Spring is here (almost), and the sun is shining (well, occasionally!), so I thought it was time to get some pastel-ness going on. As if that wasn't enough for me, I went all out and went glittery!

I'm really pleased with how cute this turned out, its very girly, summery, and fun. The glitter polish is actually a new one, that came in the post this morning, and I knew I had to try it out straight away.

Polishes from left - right:

Bourjois - Rainbow Apparition. I bought this from for £6, and I'm really pleased with it! Its so pretty, and the glitter in it is so fine its just enough to add a girly sparkle to your mani. Its a bourjois 1 seconde gel nail polish, meaning that it supposed dries in one second, whilst also giving your nails the look of a gel manicure. I completely agree. My nails do look like they have had a gel manicure, however one second drying time is a little over exaggerated. I would say it took under a minute to become touch dry.

Avon nailwear pro - Luxe lavender. £3. This is just a really pretty pastel lavender. I've had this in my collection for a couple of years now, and I wear it every summer. This shade works perfectly with the Bourjois polish. I never have a bad word to say about Avon nail polishes, they are just brilliant.

Sally Hansen - Double duty strengthening base and top coat. £4, Lloyds pharmacy. After finally coming to terms with the fact that my Nicole by OPI top coat isn't really all that (no matter how much I paid for it *sob sob*) I decided to pick this up when I saw it. The main thing that drew me to it was the strengthening properties it said it had. My nails, especially my thumb nails, always seem to break right down, as soon as they've grown past a certain length - no idea why! This polish is great as a base and top coat. It really protects, and is such a shiny top coat. However I'm not entirely sure it has any strengthening benefits at all.
