A Make Up Update

Here are a few of the products i've bought recently.

Essie Nail Varnish - More The Merrier
I blame bloggers for this purchase. I have seen this on about two or three peoples Instagram and I absolutely fell in love with the colour. I think this will look great on a few nails with some more pastel colours as well, I don't know if I'm brave enough to wear it on all 10 but I'm definitely gonna have an experiment with this one!

Sinful Colors Nair Varnish - Show Me White
I needed a new white nail varnish, this was cheep, cheerful and seems to last a good length of time!

Bourjois Laser Toppings - Blue Neon
Once again I blame bloggers for this purchase, but I don't care because it looks amazing. I've been wearing this the past couple of days on top of the Sinful Colors white nail varnish and it looks lush!

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder - 001 Translucent
I was 50/50 on this and Soap and Glory's 'One Heck Of A Blot'. However this was a lot less expensive and as I've never used powder before I thought Rimmel's would be more suitable for me. Any other time of the year I wouldn't need this as my skin isn't particularly oily, but in summer due to the heat my makeup does seem to end up sliding down my face throughout the day!

Topshop Lipstick - Brighton Rock
I've wanted this lipstick for over a year now and it is finally within my grasp! I thought I would wait until this time of year as it is such a bright, summery colour that it might look a bit odd with my hat and scarf on. Can't wait to get more use out of this!

Boots Natural Collection Lipsticks
This brand is exclusive to Boots and I don't understand why I haven't heard many people talking about it. I've tried the foundation, lipsticks and bronzers and it is all brilliant for the price! Especially the lipstick, they're so long lasting and 'Raspberry' has become a staple for me (This is my third tube!) I only actually bought 'berry sorbet' because I picked it up by accident! Not as bright as my favey but the colour is still lovely, as most of the colours are!

Recently I've been listening to: London Grammar - Strong
I love London Grammar unbelievable amounts. I've been a fan of theirs for a good couple of months now so I thought i'd share their latest single with you if you. I'm not sure if they played a lot of the big festivals this year but I caught them doing a little acoustic at Glastonbury for BBC3 and the lead singer has such a beautiful voice, its mesmerising! I've seen a few people say they're like Florence and The Machine/Lana Del Rey/Massive Attack, which can never be a bad combo. I am going to see them at Sound Control in Manchester later in the year and I cannot wait!
