hd brows palette review

hd brows kit- glossy box

This is one of the amazing products that i recieved in my glossy back last year, and this luckily happened to be in the first box i got. I have literally fallen in love with this hd brows kit so much and dont go a day without using it, unless i really am wearing no makeup.
The colours are perfect for my brows and i use a combination of the 2 bottom colours, as you can see one has hit the pan but that was my own fault for breaking it.
They are really well pigmented so little product goes a long way. Also the top two colours are brilliant as well, you can use either to create a light or a dark brow depending on what hair colour you have and this whole palette can even be used to create a smokey eye which is amazing if you don't have much space to carry a tonne of makeup on you.
It comes with a small brush which is good for precise application, although i use a different brush as i did find the handle on this one a bit to small. 
All in all a great product that im sure you will all love :) What do you think?

Mua gel eyeliner review

                                                MUA gel eyeliner in Underground-Boots £3

The other day i popped into Boots and picked up this MUA gel eyeliner, i was originally going to order it offline but didn't want to have to pay shipping so brought it in store instead. For ages i had been using the Spring Limited addition gel eyeliner from no'7 but for some reason it just started transferring onto my eyelid and it was just very annoying. Bearing in mind i wear eyeliner everyday this was something that needed to be repurchased asap. Although i had another eyeliner i could use i wanted to try something new so here it is.

On to the review, firstly this is a lot smaller than i thought it was going to be as you can see from the photo where its on the palm of my hand and this i thought would limit the amount of product you can actually fish out, but i thought i would over look this as it could be an amazing product.
The top of the lid actually pops off and a small brush is hidden inside which you can turn around and clip back into the lid to make a brush handle, its quite small to hold but actually works nice and precisely. The colour i got is Underground which is their black colour and it is a very nice matte black which i loved as i don't like a shiny eyeliner. Dont know what it is about shiny eyeliner but it just makes me think of when i was young and i had my first ever cheap eyeliner... and although this is a cheap eyeliner it is great really !! It lasted all days on my eyes with no transfer so that was fab. Overall, i do think this is a great cheap eyeliner so get down to the shops and try it out, including there 3 other colours :)

Barry M gritty nail polish

One coat                     Two coats
                                                    Barry M Gritty nail polish- Boots £3.99
These are the most recent nail polishes to be released by Barry M and they are the new textured nail polishes. Amongst many of the other new nail trends including feather nails and nail caviar i think these are fabulous. At first i didn't think i was going to be able to deal with the grit as i thought it would catch on my tights and other various materials but it doesn't and it fab! Here i am wearing a pastel yellow which is station road and i also have the pastel blue which is called Atlantic road which is also a beautiful spring colour. They also have other colours available. They are matte colours although the yellow is very slightly glittery but not like crazy!!  Definately worth adding to the collection and will take you right through spring/summer.
                                                     Enjoy, Abi  xx

Garnier 3 in 1 scrub Review

Garnier Pure 3 in 1 Scrub-Boots
This Garnier Pure 3 in 1 face scrub is a product i have been using now for about 2 months now and i love it ! It can be used as a wash, scrub or a mask. I use it as a wash every time im in the shower, so every other day, firstly because if i have it sat by my sink i just wont use it to avoid getting wet hair and also... that's the only reason really.
It is a really gently scrub so perfect to use on your face and also if you have sensitive skin. I have use other face scrubs before and all of them left my skin feeling quite dry, whereas this leaves it feeling soft and subtle. This one is a new formula with Salicylic Acid and Mineral Complex and also contains Zinc, Pumice and White Clay to help intensely purify, unclog pores and cleanse and mattify.

Overall, i think this is a great face scrub that also helps clear your skin, can be used everyday and also in a number of ways. Definitely worth the purchase if your on the hunt for something new to use.

Nails of the day

Barry M Indigo-Boots £2,99
Rimmel London-500 disco ball *
Sorting through my messy makeup drawers i found this glitter nail varnish by Rimmel London and forgot about my love for it. Straight away i took off my old nail varnish and applied 1 coat of it over 1 coat of the indigo and i think it looks great ! Almost has a cosmic/galaxy look to it i think, WHAT DO YOU THINK?
This glitter would look amazing over any other colour as it has such a wide range of colours in it, blue,pink,and the silver which is holographicy. Will definately be using this alot more :)

Review Blog

Recently i have loved finding reviews on blogs as i have been purchasing and reusing new products that for some reason i have just wanted to know more about. I also like seeing how other bloggers have used these products and if they have sourced them anywhere cheaper, found dupes or even found a better product.
So from now on i am going to post a lot more and i am also going to be doing a lot of reviews.
I hope you enjoy,
