I originally bought this product as a topcoat for hungry glitters. While it is good for that, I've had the most success with this as a base coat for my weak, peely nails. Dries fast when I use for this purpose, not so much as a topcoat. Will buy again.

I LOVE this. I don't even like putting polish on top because I love the nude satin/matte look it gives my nails. Great for when I dont feel like putting polish on but can't go naked due to uneven colouring caused by polish and weak see through patches. Awesome.
Treatments -Butter London - Handbag Holiday Cuticle Oil

This smells awesome! I was sad when my Sallys dc'd my favourite tropical scented cuticle oil so this fills that gap. Much more moisturising than most I've tried. Expensive but lasts forever. Yum.
Fairy Dust is a must have for any nail polish enthusiast. I can't add much to what has already been said about this, it is truly magical. My fave combo so far has been this over OPI I'm Not Really a Waitress. Only downside, it eats thinner, I have to thin it every time I use it.
I have loved April Violets forever. This is the scent that made me fall in love with violets. I have Guerlain Insolence, but that's a very strong, heady interpretation of violets, this is springtime green violets. Amazing.
Bought this for a steal off amazon (99p for dark brown) so I figured I didn't have much to lose if it didn't work out. This is the first brow kit I've used, I usually use pencils. This product is AMAZING. I found it tricky to use at first but I've used it for about a week now and I'm used to it. Darkest shade matches my hair completely. Love the packaging, very compact for what comes in it. Yes, the tweezers aren't great, but hell no I'm not complaining at this price! Buying back ups!
This is my favourite lotion ever. Real vanilla, real jasmine. Smells heavenly. I love that my clothes smell of this when I'm wearing it. Also I love the fact that its full of natural ingredients rather than an extensive list of chemicals. It sinks into skin really quickly. Love it.
I was in boots with my boyfriend and I spotted this perfume, I told him it reminded me of going on holiday with my grandma and grandad not long before he died, in 2002 and I bought this from a perfume store while I was on holiday with them. Now my bf hates me buying perfume but he said I should buy it for the memories, so I did and its just as lovely as I remember it all those years ago :-) it smells wonderful on me. Best part, it was half price, £15 for 50ml :-) lovely scent and memories

Smells good, like fresh lemons. Does take a while to rub in and even then it does seem to sit on the skin so I have to blot it a little with a towel. Good for overnight moisture, wouldn't apply it in the daytime personally
Nice smell, but not very scrubby at all. I need more hardcore exfoliation. wouldnt repurchase.
Skincare - Body -The Body Shop - Exfoliating Gloves

I love these gloves for the back of my arms, it really smooths the bumpiness out, doesn't work quite so well on my thighs but there's a definite improvement. They're better than any scrub I've used at any rate!
I bought 01 for a night out, its a bold vibrant red leaning towards the blue based side rather than Orange. It's the first red lippie I've ever worn in my life and I had so many compliments! The texture is velvety and very smooth, its very pigmented, neither shiny nor matte and lasts ages. Smells gorgeous. Rimmel have really knocked it out of the park for this range of lipsticks.
I got this dirt cheap in tk maxx, excuse the pun lol. As several reviewers have said, its a warm brown with red/plum undertones and subtle gold sparkles. Perfect for my green eyes. It is also buttery soft and applies excellently wet or dry.
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Lasting Creme - 55 Blushing

This is one of my favourite lippies. I feel the shade really suits my skin tone. It's not one I would wear every day, more of an evening look for me. It is a bit drying so I wear with a touch of balm.
When I saw swatches online for the opi Germany collection, this is the shade I NEEDED for some odd reason! I received it this morning, and just applied it. Love the colour, levels out well and its a two coater for me. However I need to take off and reapply as my seche vite turned to glue and ruined the finish!
