Makeup Mugshot #5 and a Glitter NOTD

After a mini haul over the weekend from a mixture of shops and blog sales today I just had to play around with some of my new bits and bobs. New cosmetics are so exciting!
On my nails I played around with my new Barry M polish and did a glitter tip mani. I think the polish is just called Turquoise glitter and I bought this one and a light pink glitter in Superdrug where you get £1 off if you buy two. I love the look of bright tips with nude nails, such a bright contrast.

On my face:

  • Maybeline BB cream sample (not impressed, won't be buying full sized!)
  • Frat Boy blush from theBalm. This is one of my blog sale purchases from Jetley Mess and I love love love it! Such a lovely matte pink shade, perfect for pale girls like me.
  • NYC mosaic blush and bronze duo in Rose Bronze to contour. Another Superdrug buy. I've wanted the MUA one for ages but refuse to buy from them after an incident a few months back and this is almost identical so I was so happy to find it.
  • MAC brow pencil in Spiked.
  • 17 blue/green pressed eyeshadow.
  • Max Factor False Lashe Effect mascara in black.
  • TINY dab of pout paint in Pin Up bought a couple of weeks ago from Ms Red's blog sale. This stuff is so strong that you only need the smallest amount to get a very bold look so I used literally a pin pricked spot mixed with vaseline for a soft look.
What do you think of the glitter mani? I love all of my new bits and pieces so much. Its amazing how much joy makeup brings me :)
Have you been buying lots in all the sales going on at the moment too?

  1. Love them two nail shades together! I also tried the Maybelline BB cream, I thought it was good an it looks lovely on you! Xo

    1. Aww, thank you. I just havent got on with the BB. Ive found it just sort of sits there and makes me look shiny every couple of hours and makes my skin feel a bit clogged up. Glad it works well for you though :) xx

  2. The glitter mani is soooooo cute! :D

    A couple of my friends have tried the maybelline bb cream and didn't like it either..hmm. Nevermind! Atleast it was only a sample eh? :D


    1. Thanks. I love the look of glitter mani's they just look so cute and happy haha.
      Exactly, thats what samples are for. Nothing lost :) xx

  3. I tried the sample as well, used it as a base though, thought it was rubbish too. Glad I'm not the only one.

    1. Yeah, I think a lot of people have been disappointed by it. Shame, I was hoping it would be quite good xx
