Models Own Sale Haul

As you may all know I am a huge nail polish addict so when I saw Model’s Own was having a 50% off sale I had to get some, it would have been rude not to. I even got up especially which was probably a mistake as we crashed the site when the sale went live but after a lot of perseverance my order went through. I only ordered it at 11am yesterday and it arrived today. I haven’t tried any of it yet as I cant decide what colour to use first but here’s what I got

What colours will you be picking up?

Maybelline Street art Top Coat

As mentioned in my after exam haul post I couldn’t resist trying the Maybelline color show Street Art Top coat. I started off with Barry M in Blue Grape with an accent nail in Sally Hansen in Bling-Tastic. I really liked this look even without the street art top coat. However I am completely in love with the street art top coat. It is amazing and looks great. I couldn’t stop looking at it and can’t wait to wear it again. Only downside, it’s not the easiest to get off but I can definitely look past that. I highly recommend you give it a go.

After Exams Haul

I’m really bad around exams time for treating myself. I had three exams and one assignment to be done last week and I seemed to treat myself after all of them. So here’s what I treated myself to.

Image

 Nivea Express Hydration Primer: £4.99

This was more of a need as my primer has nearly run out, I am in love with this primer and at £4.99 it is a bargain plus it has lasted me about 6 months of almost every day use. I did a full review here

Image

Glass jars: £1.99 each

I got these in B&M. I have wanted some glass jars to put my make up brushes and mascara and eyeliner in for ages so I don’t have to empty my makeup bag looking for them every time. The shorter one is a tea light holder and is perfect for my mascara and I plan on getting another one for my hair bobbles. The taller one is a tooth brush holder and fits my make up brushes nicely and I may get another one for my eyeliner

 Rimmel Salon Pro in Urban Purple: £4.49

Seventeen Gel Colour in Emerald Tropics: £3.99

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Blue Grape: £3.99

Maybelline Color Show Street Art in Alley Attitude: £3.99

Barry M Matte Nail Paint in Espresso £3.99

Okay so I may have a slight addiction to nail polish. I got the two Barry M polishes in a two for £6 deal and the same with the Rimmel one except my friend got the other one in the deal. The maybelline street art top coat is amazing and I am in love, expect a post soon. I did a look using the matte Barry M polish here.

Plain Band Midi ring: £8.00 paid £5.76

Show Me The Way Midi ring: £12.00 paid £8.64

I absolutley adore shop dixi rings and I want them all especially the midi rings. I currently have three and will do a post on them soon. I wasn’t planning on buying them but they had a 28% off deal so it would have been rude not to.

Image

Cream Colour Fleck Bobble Hat: £4.00 paid £3.19

This hat was down from £7.99 to £4.00 so I already had to have it but then New look were also doing a 20% student discount instead of the usual 10% so it was knocked down again. I am a massive hat fan mainly because I’m lazy when it comes to doing my hair so adding another one to my collection for just over £3 had to be done.

Models Own Velvet Goth Collection

And last but definitely not least I entered a competition on the Models Own facebook page and won the Velvet Goth collection. It made my day after a horrible exam. I had been tempted to buy the rest of the collection after falling in love with absinthe which I posted about here. I don’t know which colour to try first.

You should definitely all go and like their facebook page because if they get to 250,000 likes before the 31st January they are doing a massive 50% off sale which would be amazzing.

Anyone else spend a fortune after exams?

Minnie Mouse Kissing Lips Lipstick

I saw a post on Marvelle’s blog about a Minnie Mouse & Etude House collaborations and I knew I had to have it. I love lipstick and I love disney so it was a no brainer that it had to be mine. I was tempted to get the red one but I already have so many reds and I thought the pink would be a great every day colour.

I adore the packaging including the box the lipstick came in. The colour is gorgeous and looks great for a toned down everyday look. Most of my lipsticks are bright colours so this is a great addition to my collection. The colour pay off is good and its a creamy formular that applies well. It faded into a nice tint but didn’t last as long as some of my other lipsticks but I don’t mind reapplying as its an excuse to whip out the tube and show off the amazing packaging. It is well worth the money and I’m tempted to get the red too.

I got it for about £5.72 with free delivery that was dispatched within a day and arrived within about 2 weeks. I got it from ebay and this is the buyer I used.

Matte and Sparkle

 After leaving my exam and not feeling it went amazing today I decided to treat myself to some nail varnish as there were 2 for £6 offers on Barry M and Rimmel nail polishes and I had a couple of pounds on my points card.

 I’ve been intrigued by the Barry M matte nail paints since they came out but normally being a glossy girl I wasn’t brave enough to give it a go but today I picked up espresso and I am so glad I did.

Normally they are £3.99 which is a bargain anyway but at 2 for £6 including the gelly range I couldn’t say no as I’ve been wanting Blue grape for ages

 I really love the matte effect and I now kind of want to buy the rest of the range luckily its too much effort to pop to Superdrug.

 I decided to jazz up my nails with some sparkle to make my exams seem less gloomy but wanted to try something different to my usual accent nail.

 I grabbed some tape and my Models own juicy jules, made some diagonal lines and ta-da.

 I’m pretty chuffed with them although my right hand needs more practice.

What do you think?

Are you loving matte nails or are you a glossy person?

Bear with me

I know I’ve been really bad at posting but I have exams next week and I’m freaking out so no time for blogging. My last exam is the 20th Jan so hopefully I’ll be able to get some posts up as soon as possible after that because I have loads of ideas for posts. 

Hope you all had an amazing Christmas and heres a late happy new year.

Wish me luck. I think medical genetics may actually kill me
