What's in my bag?

Sorry for the slightly long absence from blogging... but I'm back! I always love what's in my bag posts so I thought it was a good (re)starter point.

The bag is from H&M current line and cost £14.99 

So its contents!
My diary from WHSmith, Hair bobbles and slides, Purse from Accessorize (I think...) Pink iPod nano, a random hair clip, work keys, house keys, a fold away hair brush, some highlighters and pens for uni,  a nail file, some sunglasses (slightly optimistic for England) Soap and Glory hand maid, cocoa Vaseline, Cocoa lip butter and a small sampletube of Vaseline hand cream I received with a recent super drug order

My bag is usually way messier than this but seeing as I just purchased this bag I thought I should really tidy it before throwing all my crap into it!

Hopefully my next post will be a bit sooner than this one...

Barry M Nail Varnish

I only actually have a few nail varnishes from Barry M because I'm not entirely sure how much I like them for quality wise. Whenever I paint my nails with them they tend to chip quite quickly but maybe that's just because I get inpatient and don't let them dry very well... But who can really argue with their prices!

Anyway these are the colours I have collected so far! There is a bit of a colour theme emerging! 

Silver Glitter, Mushroom, Black, Silver, Red Glitter, Nail Effects crackle in Black, Peach Melba (loveeee this colour!)and in the centre Red Wine!

A mini haul...

Okay so this is only going to be a few beauty bits but I popped into town yesterday and this is what I picked up... 

- Bed Head 'Headrush' "Super fine shine spray that will go straight to your head. This lightweight mist gives your hair extreme gloss with all-over coverage." I've heard a lot of good reviews about this product and so when I went into TK Maxx and saw it I just picked one up! I can't remember the exact price but I know you can pick them up on ebay for reasonable prices here

- Clean and Clear dual action moisturiser. Again, heard alot of good reviews about this product and have had a few breakouts recently so thought I'd go for it. I got this from boots for £1.99 as it's currently £1 off! 

- Collection 2000 mascara in clear. Been meaning to purchase one for a while to set my brows £1.99

- Maybelline Eyestudio lasting drama gel liner in 01black - I am totally rubbish with liquid liners and no matter how hard I try I can never seem to get the perfect winged liner! Apparently gel liners are much easier to use so expect a comparison post in the next few weeks £7.99

- Vaseline cocoa butter because who can ever have too much vaseline or coconut scented products?! £1ish

- Vanillary Gorilla Perfume 10ml from Lush. I love love LOVE vanilla or coconut scented products and so when I popped into Lush with a Christmas voucher I had completely forgot about I just had to buy this! £12.00 

- Bubblegum Lip Scrub from Lush. Dry lips are a constant problem for me especially in this lovely English winter weather so I thought why not invest! £4.95

And finally I bought these fingerless mitten gloves from Monsoon in the sale for just £3! Would have been rude not to really! 

PHEW! That was a longer post than anticipated sorry for the rambles!

Oh So Nails...

I haven't really ever tried much make up from Next before but I'm really impressed with this nail varnish! 
I can't find a link to it online and it was a Christmas present so I'm unsure as of the price but you can buy a set of 4 of them here for just £10! Bargain! 

The photo's don't really do it justice but the colour is gorgeous! Its kind of a greyish colour with a subtle green hint.
The name of the colour isn't too clear on the bottle but I think it's called 'Metal'

This is only the second time I'm wearing it but so far it hasn't seemed to chip and is easily lasting 4-5 days without having to remove or repaint

Very impressed!

What's in my make-up bag?

First Post Yay! I decided to do a 'what's in my make up bag' post as my first entry because I know I always love having a nose at other peoples! 

Okay so, this post is going to be slightly different from my normal make-up bag as I've had to nip home fairly unexpectedly and so just grabbed the bare essentials I thought I would need! 

So this is my make-up bag. It's the dermalogica bag that came as an extra in what I think was the November glossy box! 
It's alot smaller than my usual make up bag but time was tight and I didn't have a particularly large holdall to bring home with me!

- Mac Face and Body Foundation in N2
- Maybelline Super Stay 24hr Concealer in Light 2 
- Bourjois Bronzing Powder in 51

- Sleek Brow Kit in Light
- Barry M Intense Black Eye Pencil 
- Rimmell Exaggerate Liquid Liner
- Models Own Ultra-Waterproof Mascara in Black

- Cocoa Lip Butter 
- Mac Shy Girl 

- Pink Tweezers which I think are from Cosmo
- Oh So Nails by Next which doesn't appear to have a colour on it! 

Let me know if anyone wants to see any swatches or reviews on any of the products mentioned above and I will post more later!

Whats in your make-up bag?
