I have been seeing this gorgeous shade everywhere lately and when I spotted it, I knew I had to pick it up. It's a grey shade with tones of purple to it and it looks beautiful when it's applied, only requiring two coats. My only problem with Barry M nail polishes in general is the brush wand which has got to be one of the thinnest ever. Because of this if takes that little bit longer to cover the entire nail and it also means you need to be quick or you could end up with a messy, uneven finish. Regardless I put up with it because the shade and the shine of this nail polish is incredible.
Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder in 53 Light Beige
I have seen though powder around for a long time and I honestly don't know why it took me so long to pick it up. This stuff is amazing quality, probably on par with higher end powders that I have previously tried. It's very finely milled and feels almost buttery, which is great as it doesn't look chalky on the skin. It keeps shine at bay food a good 6 hours before my nose starts to look oily, but honestly that is the case with all the powders I own so I am used to that. For the affordable price I a delighted to have finally bought this into my life.
So can you tell I have an obsession with cherry things, especially when it comes to lip balms, dunno what it is but I just love the scent. Carmex is one of my all time favourites lip balms and I used to have one of these tubs practically living in my pencil case all throughout my school days, so I thought I would bring some nostalgia back. It's not the most hygienic, but they do have squeezy tubes as an option also, I just wanted to pick up the original tub since I haven't had it in years. The Nivea one is definitely a new addition as I've never tried this version before, but have loved pretty much all the other versions I have had in the past. This ones leaves lips really glossy with the slightest hint of colour so it's a nice addition for those days when I am wearing makeup but need to keeps my days well hydrated.
So that is my little haul and I love everything I picked up, I just hope I'm confident enough to actually wear those berry shades that I love so much out of the house. Let's hope I'm good for the rest of the month and leave all my shopping until November.
