When I am back I'll have some exciting posts for you guys including my new ombre hair, so please bare with me. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I hope to be back with you soon x

Apart from the little niggles i have with this kit i do actually rather like it, and it has been my go to for doing my brows the past week or so. It retails at £3.50 and you can pick it up in selected Superdrug stores or online, and until the 4th of December they are running a 3 for 2 offer. Do you own this little kit yet, or do you swear by another? Hope you all had a brilliant weekend and a good start to the week. Thanks for reading and I'll see you all again soon x

I have used the blushers as well as the bronzer and highlight, and must say i really like them. The bronzer is quite dark especially as I'm rather pale so a light touch is all that's needed, especially as it can be a bit hard to completely blend out. The highlight isn't normally one i would choose as it is slightly shimmery, however i actually really like it and think i would certainly wear it on a night out but is still wearable in the day. The only thing i slightly dis-like about it being shimmery is you cant use it as a brow highlight which is normally what i do with my Soap & Glory solar powder. The blushers a nice to wear separately or together, i really like wearing pink sparkle with just a slight sweep of primrose over the top, which gives a nice natural looking blush. The quality of both blushes, bronze and highlight are brilliant, the colour is nice and rich and you only need a little bit and the powder itself is nice and creamy.
The main benefit i feel about this pallet is that is has everything you need if your staying somewhere overnight or going away for a holiday. Although i love my Soap & Glory solar powder the main pet hate i have is that the case doesn't secure shut so travelling with it would be an issue, where this case secures nicely so i wouldn't worry about it being in my makeup bag. It also saves on having a lot of different items to take around, fair enough you may still need to bring a palette of eye shadows, as i do feel their choice in this palette are slightly random.
This retails at £6 which i think is well worth the money for what your getting, no where else could you get six eye shadows, two blushers, a bronzer and a highlighter, in one palette and are actually good quality. I got this in their 3 for 2 offer which is running until the 4th of December, you can pick MUA products up from selected Superdrug stores or on their website. Have you tried this palette yet, if so what are your thoughts on it? Thanks for reading, i hope your all having a wonderful weekend and i shall see you all again soon x

The process of doing it is a little annoying, as flocking powder natural clumps so you do have to sieve some of the powder first for best results, i just used i tiny little sieve doesn't matter which one you use but this is a very important part to getting this look spot on. I find it easiest and less wasteful to sieve it over a piece of paper, that way whatever you don't use it's easy to just fold the paper and gently sprinkle it back into the pot. Then paint all your nails with your chosen polish, like i say the closer it matches the flocking the better. Now you want to apply a layer of top coat, very fast drying ones can make this tricky i find applying a thick layer can help. Then quickly yet carefully (as you don't want to re clump it when picking it up) apply the flocking to your nail. Don't worry about being messy as it's only gonna stick where you've put the top coat, and lightly press down to secure it in place. Leave for a little bit (time depends mainly on your top coat and if it's fast drying) and then very lightly brush the excess off, i also tap the tip of my nail on the paper to also get rid of the excess.
Like i said i got this from Sparkly Nails (i have a link to them on the side of my blog) for just £2.99 for a 15ml pot. It might not look a lot but trust me with sieving it you really don't use a lot so it should last awhile, also they have it in lots of lovely colours. Obviously with this mani things like getting it wet and playing with it will affect how long it lasts for, so if you wanted this for a special occasion i would advise doing it on the day preferably after you've bathed. There you go one velvet mani, I'm thrilled with the results this time round and shall certainly be getting more colours, although i do love this cherry red as i think it's very festive. Are you a fan of this look? Thanks for reading, i hope you have a wonderful day and I'll see you all again soon :) x
