NYC Smooth Skin Sunny Bronzer

I Picked up this bronzer on a complete whim, as the bronzer i was using decided to crack and go everywhere which as you can imagine was a complete mess haha, so i went on a little trip to Superdrug and tried lots of different ones but they all seemed to be either too dark or too orange. I then saw this which is the NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in the shade "Sunny", and i remembered everyone used to love this  a few years ago but at the time i could never get hold of it, i swatched it in the shop quickly and it seemed quite a good colour so i bought it and thought i would just see how i go with it and as it was only £1.99 it wasn't exactly going to break the bank if i didn't particularly like it.

The NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder gives your skin a sun-kissed yet natural looking bronze glow and what's great about this product is that it is completly matte which is so hard to find especially with highstreet/drugstore bronzers, So if you wanted to use it for contouring then you can not a problem. The "Sunny" bronzer is extremely buildable without making you look orange which is never a good look, so for those who like a really bronzed look then this is great for you aswell as those of you who, like me are on the pale skin side and just want a natural glow. 

For those who want to see how it looks on the skin here is two pictures of it on me, i used it all over with a light hand for an all over bronzed look 

I absolutely love this bronzer and once its finished i will 100 percent be buying it again. For the price i think its amazing and would pay alot more for it if i had to.

MUA Lush Lilac Nail Polish

So nail polishes have always been one of my crazy obsessions and i'm pretty sure i have way more than i should have but still i buy more and more haha! However i love when i find one that is not only great but is also an extreme bargain.
 This is the MUA (Make Up Academy) nail polish in the shade "Lush Lilac" and i am in love with it, it is the perfect pastel lilac-pink. It applies quite sheer but is very build-able and with 3 coats you can get a lovely opaque finish as pictured above, pair it with a clear top coat and it is amazing. Its even, smooth and shiny. 
Chip resistant wise its pretty good, i had this on for over a week and it hardly budged but i did have false nails on so i don't know how long lasting this would be on natural nails but you should be able to get atleast a couple of days use out of it,probably more with a good topcoat.

The packaging is small but sleek and as many of you have probably noticed has a huge similarity to the Essie nail polish bottles, weather that was done purposely or not i'm not sure but either way its not a bad thing, especially if your comparing the two brands as the MUA nail polishes retail at just £1 each where as Essie nail polishes retail for £8 each. So if you love a bargain then i definitely recommend you trying some of these MUA polishes, and for just £1 you really can't go wrong.

You can purchase MUA from the following websites:

Collection "Does It All 5 in 1 Mascara"

What Collection claim/say?
"Collection Does It All Mascara is our first 5 in 1 mascara that really does it all! Your mascara wish list is now a reality with new Collection Does It All Mascara! With its enhanced multi-bristle brush and five way formula; curling, volumizing, lengthening, long-wearing and conditioning- this mascara really does it all!"

I bought this "Collection Does It All 5 In 1 Mascara" quite a while ago now but wanted to give it a real go before letting you guys know my opinions on it. I picked it up because i'd heard a few people say its a great dupe for the Benefit They're Real mascara as the wand itself is very similar with the short rubber bristles. However in my opinion its slightly more 'clumpy' looking on the lashes than the benefit they're real but its still really great and has rapidly become one of my favourite mascara's. It separates the lashes nicely and adds an amazing amount of volume for a dramatic night time look with 2-3 coats or a great everyday look with just 1 coat.

Now that i've had this for quite a while its started to dry up quite alot but it is still applying just as great as it was when i first bought it which is unusual as with most mascara's they tend to get alot harder to apply and can sometimes feel like they're tugging on the eyelashes. 
The one thing i'm not too keen on with this mascara is the packaging,  i think it looks quite cheap and tacky but for only £4.99 you can't really expect too much haha!

Overall i think this is an amazing mascara especially for the price, so go out and pick this up from your local Collection retailer, i guarantee you wont be disappointed!
