Bourjois Colour Edition 24 hour Cream-to-Powder Eyeshadows Review & Swatches


Bourjois are one of my favourite highstreet brands - they do such good quality products at extremely low prices. Although I have been disappointed with some products (Healthy Mix I'm looking at you!!) these eyeshadows certainly do not disappoint.

03 Petale de Glace is the champagney peachy colour which is a perfect colour to sweep over the lid and then you're good to go. The shimmer is so pretty too, it just adds a bit of sparkle, which is definitely a must around Christmas and New Year. 

05 Prune Nocturne is the browny burgundy colour. The photos aren't capturing how pretty this colour is. It is much more red toned in real life, so if you can swatch it in store you must! The red tones are very subtle and actually look nice rather than looking like you've been punched in the eye ;)

These two shadows blend together seamlessly, they have been my go-to eyeshadow look for ages now. I like to put 03 Petale de Glace all over my lid and then 05 Prune Nocturne in my outer corner and crease. If you wanted to darken it and smoke it out, you can just add more of the darker colour and it makes a really nice quick night time appropriate eyeshadow look!

The formula is definitely better than the Maybelline Colour Tattoos. The formula is more cream to powder- which I prefer. And these feel lighter on the eye than  the Maybelline ones.

I definitely want some more of these - do you have any recommendations?

NEW IN: Minimalistic Watch from Born Pretty

I'm usually not one for jewellery as I spend most of my time in school and we are only allowed to wear watches. I had been looking for a new wrist watch for ages, and I was thinking of getting a casio but they are pretty expensive in my opinion! As you can imagine, I was over the moon when Born Pretty offered to send me one of their women's watches. I chose the Dallas Watch as I like the minimalistic look of it, the quality is so nice - especially for the price of £3.69!! Born Pretty have some amazing other wrist watches if you aren't keen on this one! My personal favourite are either the bracelet watches or the LED watches - very cool.

This watch has been getting a lot of wear out of it, and will come in handy when I've got my mock GCSE exams in January (!!) so I can keep my eye on the time without having to look up every 5 mins - anyone else feel like the invigilators are judging you?!?!

Also Born Pretty are offering 10% off Born Pretty using the code:


So that makes Born Pretty extremely affordable - they sell so much stuff and there is free shipping world wide too!

Barry M Matte Nail Paint 'Vanilla'


Hello guys, it feels like sooo long since I last blogged and I suppose it was to be honest! Since I last blogged, I have been absolutely loving nail polish, especially dark ones for winter - which is a total contrast to this one haha.

'Vanilla' is one of the newly launched Barry M Matte Nail Paints. I have raved about another one I have, called 'Crush' before on my blog as I loved it so much. The photos aren't that clear here, but as you can see it looks a little bit like Models Own Utopia which I have and love, but I just expected this to be a little more.. nude? Kind of not as purple if that makes sense. Although the formula is great and it is very chip resistant, I'm just not too keen on the colour. I'm hoping this shade will grow on me when it comes to Spring/Summer and everyone is wearing pastels again.

Overall, I do like this nail polish but I have been reaching for much wintery shades recently instead of this!
