NOTD- Models own pink fizz!

This glitter nail polish is one of the most beautiful that I have seen! It reflects the light in the most amazing way and is opaque in one coat if using a base colour underneath or two if using on its own, which is almost unheard of in a glitter, especially one with a clear base! The formula is faultless, it applies evenly and lasts for weeks without the slightest sign of chipping.

I got mine on offer in a set of three with Juicy Jules and Thunder&Lightning for only £5 but normally it costs £5 on its own, which is still a bargain considering the quality. You can buy it here
Is it me or do their new mirrorball collection look to die for?!

No7 Match Made Foundation Service Review!

After watching Lisa Eldridge's video explaining the new No7 match made foundation service I knew that I had to try it out, so off I popped to boots to get my self matched. I took a questionnaire and found that both the Stay Perfect and Beautifully Matte foundations would be suitable for my needs and skin type-  medium coverage with oily, acne prone skin that seems to make any foundation look like an oil slick within hours! I chose the Stay Perfect since I did not fancy the heavy coverage of beautifully matte for everyday use.

The assistant then took out the little gadget and removed any make-up off my jawline, she then pressed the machine to the side of my face and waited for it to click before doing the other side, its a quick and painless experience just as I had been assured. I then received a generous sample of the foundation , in the shade Calico if you were wandering, and was genuinely ecstatic when I realised that for once in my life I had exactly the right colour for my skin!
The colour itself is actually rather grey toned instead of the yellow toned ones which I am normally matched to which all though look a million times better than pink toned foundations, still do not quite look right. I am not quite sure if this is my perfect foundation, but there will be a review up shortly so I will explain more then. What I love most about this service is that once you know your perfect shade of foundation, whenever you go into boots you can swatch your matched shade on your hand and then explore the rest of the brands of foundation to see whether any of them come close, so you will never need to buy the wrong shade again! I know this will save me a ton of money so even if there is not a No7 foundation which suits you, never again will you have to endure that tell-tale tide line around your jaw.

REVIEW: mac ice delights eye bag- gold

Today I'm going to review this beautiful kit from mac! It contains an eyeshadow duo, a technakhol eyeliner a zoomlash mascara and a 275SE brush! it all comes in a silver makeup bag.
The eyeshadow duo contains 'baby, it's cold outside' and woodsmoke eyeshadows although the lighter shade reminds me more of a veluxe pearl. baby, it's cold outside is a beautiful light buttery vanilla shade with a lovelu sheen to it, and no glitter which makes it perfect for a browbone highlight. Woodsmoke is a dark forest green colour with a brighter green reflect, it reminds me of club eyeshadow which is in macs permanent line. Its great as a crease colour and would be amazing for a dark green smokey eye!
                               Baby, it's cold outside- Woodsmoke
p.s sorry for the watch mark on my arm!

The 275SE brush is a travel sized version of the regular 275 brush, i was expecting this brush to be a bit scratchy and not great quality but it suprised me, its actually very soft and applies crease colour very well! I have used this a lot to apply woodsmake into my crease and then use my 226 for a bit more defenition and i love it!   
The technakhol eyeliner is in the shade brownboarder and is a nice deep browm colour, prior to getting this set i was actually looking for a brown eyeliner so I'm so glad i got one in this set, it's very soft and well pigmented and stays on well even in the waterline. Its softer than a black and i can see myself using this a lot for school.

I have not yet tried the mascara as I'm waiting to finish my current one, i will post a separate review once I have tried it :)

Overall i love this set and highly reccomend it! I also think that the colours would suit most skintones.
Thank you very much to my aunty for such a wonderful gift xx
