Seventeen Brow's That Brow Kit

Boots own brand Seventeen often have lovely offers on. Spend a certain amount and get a free gift. We all love a free gift (especially me) so when I saw their current offer I had to try it.
At the minute you can get your hands on the Brow's That Kit which is worth £6.

Eyebrows are my current obsession so of course I had to spend the required £8 to get this. I also bought a new pencil concealer and a new primer. Reviews to follow.

On opening the outer box you are presented with a lovely case.

Inside there is a brow gel, a brow powder, a brow highlighter and a brow pencil. There is also a handy instruction leaflet to help you get the most out of this kit.

There is also a good sized mirror. Great for those touch ups on the go.

Today I tried it out for the first time and I'm really pleased with the results. I followed the instructions exactly and it was really easy to do. I found the highlighter added a beautiful touch. This photo was taken at the end of the day.

Altogether I'm really pleased with this and can see me getting a lot of use out of this palette. I may have to pick up another one soon though as one of the annoying things about Boots Seventeen is that they come out with all these great products but when they're gone they're gone. Stocking up with things you like is essential!!

How To Get Easy Overnight Curls

Here is a simple method for curls that I love to use.  It requires no heat and is gentle on your hair.

It is also fabulous for reducing frizz in curly hair. When I do this my hair is almost completely free of frizz. Give it a go if you struggle with frizzy, curly hair.

Company is giving away a lovely little makeup bag with 3 designs to choose from. It costs £2.50. Glamour is at the special price of £1 and is giving away various items of makeup. You can choose between lipgloss, eye liner, lip liner and mascara. I chose the eyeliner. The makeup is by cult beauty brand Model Co which I've never heard of but am willing to try.

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes Review

Clinique have had a Chubby Stick range for lips for a while now.  These are beautiful glossy colours which are easily applied to the lips.  Quite a number of years ago I remember the original Chubby Stick formula which was more of a lipstick in a chubby pencil form.  I still have one to this day but that is another story!

The most natural progression from this was to make one for eyes (in my humble opinion).  So very recently they released their Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for eyes.  Of course I was eager to try these out so at the first hint of a Bonus Time I was off to my Clinique counter in a flash.

The result was that I purchased the Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint For Eyes in the colour 03 Fuller Fudge.

The colour is beautiful and great for someone like me who has blue eyes.

The formula is creamy and so easy to apply and blend.  The size of the end of the pencil (remember it's chubby) makes it really easy to create a nice feline shape of shadow on the lid.  It's very easy to blend with fingers or a brush.

My only complaint would be that it's not as long lasting as I would like and I have had to touch it up from day to night.  However, I can live with that problem.  Heck, it means I use more, and will therefore require a further purchase sooner rather than later.  A great excuse to try another colour.  Score!!

They do come in a wide range of colours.  12 to be exact so you'll have a hard time choosing.  I have since been back and bought Ample Amber which is also beautiful but has more of a bronze colour to it.  

You can by these at your local Clinique counter or from their website here

They cost £16 each and are definitely a big hit with me.

Nails of the Day - Estee Lauder Nouveau Riche

Estee lauder have a Gift With Purchase offer on at my local chemist so I decided that I "needed" to purchase two items to get the gift.  I bought a lipstick in Crystal Nude which is lovely (post to follow) but today I'm going to share with you the nail polish I bought.

I love Estee Lauder nail polishes.  The are great quality, come in a variety of beautiful colours and they last well on my nails. Being a regular swimmer it's very difficult to keep any sort of nail polish looking well on my nails.  As a result I wear it less than I would like to.

I immediately fell in love with the shade Nouveau Riche.  It's a beautiful sparkly gold colour.  In the picture below I am wearing 2 coats of Nouvea Rich with a Rimmel Base Coat underneath and Seche Vite Top Coat on top.

As you can see it's absolutely beautiful.  It looks even more gorgeous when it catches the light.

It's quite expensive at £14.50 per bottle but if you can afford to splash out on a couple of these you will love them.  I myself only own a few because of the hefty price.  Although when a gift with purchase is on these are a relatively cheap buy to get the gift.  I only ever buy any Estee Lauder or Clinique products that I need when there is a gift on.  It makes the expense less painful.

These can be purchased at your local Estee Lauder counter or online here where they have a few utterly beautiful shades that are available online only.

Boots 17 Doll'd Up Mascara and Free Eyeliner

Boots currently have a new mascara out as part of their Seventeen range called Doll'd Up.  At present if you buy this mascara you get a free gift of a Boots 17 Doll'd Up 3 Way Eyeliner.

Well as I love a free gift and I was in the market for a new mascara I thought I'd give it a go.  The mascara costs £5.29 or 529 Advantage points and can be picked up in your local Boots or online here.

The mascara itself is lovely.  It claims to give "up to 24hr curl and wide-eyed volume for doll like eyes".  As far as I have noticed it does not give any curl and gives minimal volume but it does give beautiful length and I find it quite natural looking which is what I'm after in a mascara.  Perhaps if I applied loads of layers I would get the volume benefit but I hate the look of mascara that is applied with a heavy hand.

The eyeliner pen is amazing.  It comes in black and has a 3 way nib which can be used to achieve various looks from a fine line to a bold line or anything inbetween.

It applies as a very dark black and gives amazing definition.  It also has ridiculously brilliant staying power.  I have worn this for 24 hours and it hasn't budged, looking as fresh after 24 hours as it did when first applied, even if I didn't!  It can even survive a good old eye rub as can the mascara.  I inadvertently forgot that I had eye makeup on and began rubbing my tired eyes.  I hastily stopped but not before one eye had had a good rub.  I didn't have any tell tale black marks and was totally amazed as when I do this there are usually some signs of eye makeup carnage afterwards.

I'm not sure if this eyeliner can be purchased on its own but it's definitely worth picking up the mascara while the free eyeliner pen offer is still on.  Great value and great performance.  What more can a girl ask for?
