Beauty Bits

Over the last few weeks I have picked up a few beauty bits to add to my collection. I really wanted to try the Maybelline gel nail polish and they had so many nice colours, it must have taken me about 15 minutes just to pick! 'Forevermore Green' is a bright, turquoise colour that would be perfect for summer. The colour 'Surreal' is a more toned down blue/purple which is currently on my nails. These polishes have an ok lasting power, but I do find they still chip quite easily, even with a top coat.
I have been super impressed with the Bourjois CC Cream. This has such a beautiful finish on my skin and really evens out my skin tone. It lasts throughout the day without any need to touch up which has been a bonus! I have been quite sick lately, so the Bourjois blush has been helping me look a bit more alive and healthy!

I think kohl eye pencils are a simple, easy way to make your eyes appear more dramatic. I have been using the brown colour on an everyday basis, then smudging it out with an eye pencil to create a more natural look.

  2. I've been considering trying out the Maybelline gel nail polishes for myself but have been unsure how well they'd last. Would love a review :)
