NOTD: OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips

Oh HI pretty bright pink!

I'm slowly but surely making my way through the OPI top ten set I got for Christmas and I just couldn't resist trying this shade out last night. It's so true to the way it looks in the bottle and I love that.

As the Spring/Summer season is approaching (hopefully?!?!), this polish has definitely got me in the mood to get my sunnies and sandals out.

Now all I need is that little thing called the sun - come on sun, you can do it!

Do you like this shade? What OPI polishes do you have? xxx

My Pay Day ASOS & Space.NK Haul

Oh pay day - the day where I can roam free and indulge in some guilt-free beauty shopping.

And what a shop it was - I bought some gorgeous products from Space.NK for the first time and also got involved with a bit of ASOS browsing for good measure. 

I've been lusting after a fair few of these products since last pay day, and so logged straight on and added them to my basket. Then, of course, there were some impulsive buys along the way, which were lovely to get my hands on too.

I love reading haul posts, so I thought I'd show all of you lovely beauty bloggers the things I bought and take a few snaps so you can see them in their gorgeous glory :)

1/L'Occitane Shea Butter Milk Shower Cream (250ml, £13)

I love luxurious, creamy shower gels, so this shea butter cream from L'Occitane is right up my beauty street! Not only does it smell exactly how you think it would, it is infused with 5% shea butter, which makes your skin feel so smooth and soft. I think it is priced well for its size, and would probably buy this again.

2/Nip + Fab Dark Circle Fix 3 in 1 Eye Cream (15ml, £15.95)

OK so my first impression of the Nip + Fab eye cream is that its a little small for my liking - however, I was willing to pay for it this time as I recently tried a sample size and I found it to be soothing and non-greasy. It's a multipurpose product that has been proven to reduce the appearance of puffy eyes & dark circles and hydrate & tighten the skin around the eye area.

I do love this product, but I hope it lasts me a long time to justify the price. I might buy this again if it provides a good number of applications, but almost £16 is a lot to spend on 15ml.

3/Daniel Sandler Retexturising Face Primer SPF 20 (£20.50)

How classy and sophisticated is Daniel Sandler's packaging? I hadn't planned to buy this at all, but I was looking for a primer for some time and I know Daniel Sandler products are very popular with beauty bloggers, so gave this one a go! And I'm not disappointed at all - I tried a bit on my hand and with just one swipe the appearance of my pores pretty much disappeared. I really love the texture of the product too. Would highly recommend this primer to all beauty lovers.

4/Caudalie Nourishing Body Lotion (250ml, £19)

Want a spa day? Stay in the comfort of your own home and grab a bottle of this gorgeous Caudalie nourishing body lotion. I first came across this lovely anti-oxidant lotion in a recent Glossybox and waited patiently until pay day to buy the full-size bottle. It smells like a spa, it feels like a spa - it is a spa in a bottle!

5/OPI Euro Centrale Nail Polish in Can't Find My Czech Book (£11.50)

I've fallen head over heels in love with the OPI Euro Centrale collection, especially this gorgeous sky blue one. It's so pretty and summery and I know I will love it because OPI has never done me wrong! I'd also love to buy the Eurso Euro polish too, which is a lovely deep purpley blue.

6/Essie Fall Collection - Stylnomics (£9.95)

I am ashamed to admit that this is my first ever Essie polish - and it's also something a little different than what I usually go for in terms of colour. But I really like this one - you can't see it too well in the photos, but it's a really dark, lustrous green.

7/NARS Blush in Exhibit A (£21.50)

Those of you who read my pay day wish list post will know I have been reaching for this product for a while! Yes the colour is scary, but I think i can make it work by using a small amount with a stippling brush. Its my first NARS blush and I am looking to buy some pink/nude ones in the near future.

8/This Works Sleep Balm (10ml, £12)

I love a good sleep product and I have heard lots of great things about the This Works range. In terms of smell, it has a classic strong lavender scent, which I love. I would say this product is really small for the price though, but it does look like you can get a lot out of it. I have tried this product and can say it smells gorgeous, but whether it makes a difference to my sleep is another question!

What do you think about my haul? Have you tried any of these products? xxx

Mini Superdrug Make-Up Haul

Left: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Candy Apple; Middle: Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Mulberry; Right: Bourjois So Laque Ultra Shine Nail Enamel in Vert Chlorophylle

Attention all beauty bloggers - I've finally popped my Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter cherry! 

After a long look at all the colours and testers (it was SO hard to choose!), I picked Candy Apple and I'm so excited to add it to my lip collection. 

What's more, there's currently a £2 off promotion going on. So I got it for just £5.99!

And the fun didn't stop there :) I also bought a lipstick from the amazing Max Factor Colour Elixir range. I already have the Ruby Tuesday one which I love, but this one looks really beautiful and berry-like.  

And my final item was one of my favourite highstreet nail polishes - Bourjois So Laque Ultra Shine Nail Enamel. I opted for Vert Chlorophylle, as the colour called out my name and it would be rude not to respond!

Do you like what I chose? Have you bought anything at Superdrug lately? xxx
