I headed in to town today and pick up a few bits and bobs, I felt I was owed from the extra hours I did a work last week... I'll always find an excuse to spend money ;) I actually only went to get Lee Stafford's hair treatment but ended up buying this lot >

Nail varnish seems to be my main buy at the minute and today was no different, In Asda I brought the Sally Hansen 'Double Duty' base coat and top coat in one as suggest by youtube's shirleybeniang. I also brought a shatter polish in Gold from Beauty UK which if it works will be a really great product. I also took a fancy to the GOSH nail glitter as I have heard good things about it online, I'll be uploading a how to post soon (As soon as I learn how to!)

I was in Asda having a mooch around when I saw a George makeup stand, that's when I was reminded of the new collection Asda have just introduced. I picked up a velvet eyeshadow in Topaz which is so pigmented its unbelievable. I also decided to have a go at Benefits dupe 'Glow shine', although having never tried Benefits High Beam it will be hard to compare ;)

I popped in to Superdrug and decided to have a go at the 2True collection they have in there. I have one eyeshadow from this collection which I love as its the deepest black evarrr... I decided to try the 3 in 1 concealer as I'm still waiting for mine to arrive after the epic ELF sale last week. I also tried another Benefit dupe... a rose tinted lip and cheek stain. Having only had this product about 2 hours I have already decided that it is rubbish! It doesn't blend well at all and gives you a big red line down your face, not impressed! Although what did cheer me up was my eyeshadow in No.3, its a pink/cream shimmer that will be perfect for a neutral shade, can't wait to try it out  properly :)

While in Superdrug I decided to buy some Velcro rollers, I have some large ones but never really used them all over my hair and was inspired after watching Swalkermakeup on youtube style them, I will also be posting a how to post on these :)

I picked up these nail polishes for free, yes FREE! No, before anyone asks I didn't steal them ;) If you brought two drinks in Superdrug you recieved a MUA gift, of course after seeing this offer I felt quite thirsty! I was given the choice of colours I picked these as I am in dire need of a black nail polish since mine have gone 'gloopy'!

I have been wanting to try this for a while so finally decided to give it a go. Its Lee Stafford's Treatment for hair that never grows past a certain length (catchy title, I know).  I have had so many problems trying to get my hair to grow any longer, and while I'm not completely convinced by this product I'm willing to give it ago.

 Now something a little less beauty related, earrings! My first dangly pair to be exact... I have tried dangly earring before but feel I look like I'm trying to look older than my 17 years. These are a lot smaller than they look so aren't quite as dramatic as they appear, which is good for me! The next pair were only 50p due to being reduced to half price from a £1 ( I would have been happy to of paid that!) I thought that this will look really nice with small studs when I eventually get round to having another piecing on my ear!

What are your thoughts on these products?
Let me know what you have brought recently


  1. That's quite a lot of stuff! I have the hair growth treatement, it didn't really make mine grow but left it in such good condition and it felt so soft


  2. I've used the Lee Stafford before and it's fantastic. Most females in my family use it after they've seen it work so much on me. It smells delish (but thats a given with LS products) and makes your hair feel pretty lush. Expensive I know! Best to buy when they've got offers going in boots. Let us know how you get on using it!
