Barry M | Limited Edition

I have a lot of Barry M nail polish. At least once a month i will go into my local boots or superdrug and spend a fortune on all things Barry. So when i wandered in a few weeks ago and clocked this gorgeous limited edition polish i had to buy it and try it out!

These photos don't do it justice, it's really hard to photograph such a pale pink glittery polish as it doesn't show up great. None the less, i wanted to show you and you can even try it out yourself as it's definitely not a let down! 

A light pink polish with multi-coloured glitter a perfect shade for a night out or just to go for that little bit extra at Christmas time. Two coats to add extra sparkle makes your nails stand out from the crowd! Do note though, it does get a little messy when applying.. glitter gets everywhere. If you are a little less clumsy than me though you might apply it just right with no mess at all! I got this for £3.99 which i thought was such a great buy!

Have you tried it out? Let me know down below in the comments.

December Glossy Box | Reveal and Review

This month's glossy box wasn't so impressive, well for myself anyway! But here's my reveal and review of this month's glossy box and the products which i love and dislike.

This product is from Beautiful Movement Cosmetics and the price of this small nude and compact lip gloss is £12. I do like this lip gloss actually, it is a little light for me though. I tend to blend it in with my dark lipsticks which i wear at night so it turns a little lighter and looks acceptable to wear in the day time. Over all, nice product but i don't think i will buy it once it runs out, i will stick to the lip glosses which i know will suit me! 6/10.

I was very excited about this product, yeah i know it is just a razor but i did need a new one which was a little more expensive and would help my skin as it's sensitive. This may look like an electric razor, but it's not, around the razor is a soap bar and a razor in the middle. You can buy the soap and razor pack in your high street stores. This is £6.49 which i think is great for this product! 10/10.

This is the only product i haven't tried out yet. The little card that comes with this glossy box says it gives a satin smooth finish. I will do a separate blog for this though in the next few days showing the results! This is £9.95 for a 14ml bottle.

This Lipsy 'Glam' perfume is absolutely gorgeous! For me personally it's a strong fruity smell, which i adore and couldn't stop spraying this when i first got it. Going to go out and buy the bottle as well! For people who don't like strong perfume's this might not be for you, but you could go into Lipsy and try it for yourself! This is £25 from Lipsy. 9/10.

I wanted to cry when i opened my Glossy Box and seen this lying there. I got this bought for me in September and i done a review of it HERE. This is my favourite eye shadow by far but i just wish i got another colour! It's fine having two though, but was a little disappointed with this, obviously not there fault though as they never knew i had it! 7/10.

Winter Lipcare | My Must Have Essentials!

I don't know about you but at this time of year my lips get very chapped and dry which causes me to be in a lot of pain! If you're lucky enough to live somewhere hot you might not get this often but for us UK lot it is a daily hassle for us! 

My three lip essentials, Baby lips and Vaseline are cheap and simple but do my lips the world of good! 

Intense Care (yellow) and Hydrate (blue) are the two baby lips i tend to use as they are just more suited for winter and for damaged lips. My Vaseline was limited edition, it's pink bubbly and tastes a little bit like champagne which i am not complaining about! All Vaseline does do the same job so you can choose which ever one you like! They both sooth the lips and make them feel hydrated in no time! 

Baby lips cost me £2.99 and Vaseline costs me £3.49 as it was limited edition, but they usually cost £1.99 from all highstreet stores! 

Lastly, Blogmas didn't exactly work! I've been ill and i've been starting work at 4 and 6 in the morning and with being busy on top of that, it got too much! So going to stick to just my 3 days a week blog! Sorry about that!
