My April Wish-list

I always put a little list together in my head of things i want to get in the month ahead and even if i can only cross 2 of those things off i will be a happy bunny, sometimes i might add things to it or decide that something on there i no longer want so here are the things i want to purchase in the month of April.

So i will start left-right

MAC Studio Fix Fluid £19.50
Real Techniques Core Collection £21.99
Barry M Croc Effects £3.99
Soap & Glory Foam Call £6.50
MUA Pro Extreme Volume Mascara £2.00
Maybeline Falsies Flared Mascara £7.99

MUA BB All In One Beauty Balm £4.00

So there you have it my April wish list some of these things i really want to try like the MUA BB cream and the MAC studio fix fluid but I'm still trying to decide weather to spend that much money on foundation.

£1 Bargains

Hi everyone, i have been on a bargain hunt again and got a few things that I'm really pleased with so here goes.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick

I'm so pleased i found in this poundland i had to do a fair bit of rummaging about among the hangers it came packaged in a cellophane bag. This is such a lovely spring/summer shade its in number 022 and its called nostalgia, it's a pink but has a tiny hint of coral.

Now when i got home i looked online for this colour to find the original rrp (i like to see how much i have saved) the only place i found it was on amazon from America so i guess it's a shade they brought out over there or it may have been one of last years UK colours which doesn't bother me as i love the colour i think i have worn it everyday since i bought it :)

MUA Nail Varnish

I got this from superdrug and i chose this colour because it matches the Rimmel lipstick and again its such a summery shade this is shade 4.

 MUA nail varnishes are in smaller bottles than many other nail polishes they are 6.2ml but they are the only ones i use up and re-purchase there so easy to apply it needs 2 coats but dried quickly which i love as i tend to get a bit fidgety waiting for my nails to dry and almost ALWAYS smudge them. They have so many shades to choose from and also have a quake (crackle) range out which also features glitter quakes which look lovely too.

Nivea Creme

Again a poundland find it's not much of a 'save' as it's about £1.40 normally but every penny counts nowadays. I use this allover my face after cleansing it is really thick and feels quite oily once applied which i was quite worried about but it hasn't yet broke me out and to be honest the few blemishes i had seem to clear up after the first use so I'm going to keep using it and see if it keeps the blemishes at bay.

That's it for my £1 bargains and i might make this a regular thing :)

Have you found any £1 bargains lately
please comment and let me know about what you've found


Real Techniques Stippling brush

I spent ages deciding which brush to get and i got the real techniques stippling brush, i chose this one because i have read so many excelent reviews on it i have only used it once so i can not give it a full review so i will wait a week or so n do one then but so far its realy nice it's smaller than what i thaught it would be so this is just an update on which brush i choose i got a few more things awell so there will be quite a few posts in the next week.

thanks for reading

Stippling Brushes V Buffing Brushes whats the difference?

 Every where i look people are using stippling brushes and because all the reviews are saying they are the best thing since sliced bread i now want one but which one. While i was looking online for one i also saw buffing brushes now what is the difference so i have seen 2 stippling brushes and 2 buffing brushes that i like but can not seem to choose between them as different people are saying different things about each of them so here they are

Real Techniques Stippling brush

Product Image

This one is £11.99 buy it here which is kind of pricey for me but I've heard nothing but good reviews on this ones the bristles are shorter so i suppose it would be firmer and give a more flawless finish.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush
Product Image

 The buffing brush comes in the core collection for £21.99 buy it here it is the last one on the right. You get 4 brushes which to me is better value for the price because in the set you also get a detailer brush, pointed foundation brush and a contour brush which are held in a handy case/stand.

Eco Tools Buffing Brush

Product Image
This one is £9.99 buy it here and at the moment there is an offer on selected Eco Tools buy 1 get 2nd half price so i could get 2 brushes for about £15.00 i like the idea of Eco Tools with the whole earth friendly bamboo thing they do but is it worth it.

E.L.F Studio Stipple Brush

This is the cheapest one at just £3.50 buy it here and there are a tone of mixed reviews about it some are saying its amazing and others are saying the bristles are too long and they just fan out on your face but i have no idea!

I'm really looking to achieve that flawless airbrushed finish and haven't a clue which one to buy
have you tried any of these brushes and would you recommend any other ones for me to try
please leave a comment and let me know
