Ciate and Essie Haul

I’ve really got to stop spending money, but when Ciate and Essie are on Fragrance Direct for massively reduced prices I just can’t not buy it!

I’ve not tried anything from these brands yet, so I was so excited to get these 🙂

Chalkboard nails! How cool is that! I’ve used this and I love the matte black, you definitely need two coats though. I’m gonna need some practice with the chalk pens but so far so good!

And lastly, Essie nail polish in Fear & Desire, will definitely brighten up this awful weather we’ve been having.

Thanks for reading! Have you tried any of these? Let me know!



Haul of the Day.

Boots Haul.
Heya guys, today I went to Boots so I thought I’d just do a quick post with what I picked up!
Real Techniques have brought out their own version of the beauty blender, I’m so excited to give this a try and I’ll definitely do a review of it!
Your smile is important, therefore so are teeth! I love flossing my teeth, knowing that they are super clean really makes me feel happy!
Cotton balls are so handy! And a little tip, have a look in the baby section for cotton wool products, for pretty much the exact same size bag, the baby ones are £1 cheaper!! And both are made from 100% cotton. I also wanted to try out some shine control papers so I just picked up the first I saw and these have salicylic acid in them for extra help in the war against acne 🙂
They had lots of things in the reduced section which was great! I got two No7 nail polishes for £1.50 each! The blue one is called Stand Back and the pinky orange is Crave Me.
Also from No7 they had Lighten and Brighten  age spot corrector down to £2.50. I don’t have age spots but I do have some dark spots from acne so I thought for that price I’d give it a go, ya never know!
I’ve wanted to try a new root lift product for while and I saw this John Frieda one with no lid for £2.50 I can cope with no lid! It also provides heat protection. I do love me a good dry shampoo so I’m giving this Charles Worthington one a go 🙂 (Sorry for the crap picture of the dry shampoo!)
I went to the Estee Lauder counter too as I’m in need of a new foundation, I got colour matched and got a sample for their Double Wear foundation, so I’m looking forward to giving it a try and no doubt I’ll be back with a full review on it!
Thanks for reading!
