Review: Maybelline Color Show nail polish in Orange Attack

It was pay day and I found myself browsing through town looking for anything to spend my money on, which I am sure every girl does! My go to mascara by Maybelline was on offer so I picked it up but their new brand of nail polishes cought my eye! The new range 'Color Show'.
I immediately got excited, so many bright colours to choose from! I'm currently into orange (and have my Hayley Williams MAC lipstick on the way!) so picked up the colour 'Orange Attack'

Punchy, strong name! I like it! and boy is it true to its name! It goes onto your nails the exact colour as it is in the bottle, even after just one coat, no streaks, handy if you hate waiting around for nails to dry!
The colour is so beautiful and bright, great for summer, if it ever comes. What impresses me most about this product is how long it lasts, here are my nails after two weeks...

Yes, two whole weeks! Bare in mind my job includes a lot of handling cardboard and sellotape which rips my nail polish clean off!

Oh and the price for this amazing, true to its colour, basically chip free nail polish? 

Only £2.99! 

What more could a girl ask for?

Tried any colours from this range? Tell me down below! xo

Review: Barry M Blink Waterproof Precison Eyeliner

I love wearing a cat eye look whenever I can, I've been on the hunt for a great eyeliner product for the past year. I wanted a pen like product with a thin applicator and amazing staying power. After a year of searching I have finally found, 'the one'!

Here it is; Barry M Blink Waterproof Precison Eyeliner;

At the time I bought this it was one of their new products, I've owned this one for a few months now and I adore it, it is my go to eyeliner. The applicator allows you to do as thin or thick lines as you like and because of the pen style packaging I find it so easy to handle and able to create a cat eye in under a minute! Great for when I'm in a rush for work! 
Waterproof products never interest me, I'm not the one to wear make up to the beach or swimming, they just don't seem to sell an alternative. 

I was interested in its claims, 'fast drying' 'smudge proof' and boy are they correct! I can wear this product all  day and my flicks have not moved, no reprinting of the product on the top of my eye, it just doesn't budge! Also it doesn't leave that shine that some liquid eyeliners do, personally I can't stand it! It leaves it looking lovely and matte.
I love this product and I'm so glad I've finally found an eyeliner that ticks all my personal boxes! It retails for £4.59 at Boots! Bargain!

Have you tried this product yet? What is your go to eyeliner?! xo
