New Tanya Burr lips and nails review

Hey Everyone,

I was super excited to receive a package I ordered from Superdrug of some products from the new Tanya Burr range. I love Tanya's you tube channel and blog so I couldn't wait to try her new lipglosses and nail polish.

I went to my local Superdrug to see if they had the products in stock but when I asked they said the range will only be available online and not in any of the stores. I was certain I'd heard that selected stores would be stocking it but it's easy to buy online and arrived fairly quickly.

I always wear bright lip colours so I chose an orange shade, a pink and a red. When they arrived they all looked quite similar in the packaging but as you'll see they look different when you apply them. I also got a nail polish but only one as my nails are pretty rubbish so I don't paint them very often. I chose 'bright and early' which is a peachy coral shade. I really love the names of all the products. Tanya explained in one of her videos that she named them after all her favorite things. I think I'll have to get the nail polish called mischief managed just because I'm a huge Harry Potter fan :)

The first thing I noticed when I applied the gloss is

Sleek makeup - first look

Hey guys,

For some reason I've only recently discovered Sleek makeup and I really wish I'd discovered it sooner as the few products I got I was super impressed with! This is a first look post rather than a review so I haven't used these products enough yet to give a proper review which I'll do later on.

I definitely want to try more things but I just got a few to start with as it was a new brand  to me and I didn't know what to expect. I'd heard great things about the I-Divine eyeshadow pallets so I got one in the shade Au Naturel

Orange lips for Spring and Summer - Review of Revlon colorburst matte balm

Hi everyone :)

Orange seems to be everywhere right now especially when it comes to lip colour so despite my super pale skin I thought I would give it a go. Orange looks great on tanned peeps so I wasn't sure if this would work for me. I picked up the Revlon colorburst matte balm in shade 245 (Audacious) which is a really gorgeous colour and I always prefer matte lip products so I thought this would be a good choice for my first attempt at orange lippie

It was really easy to apply and I didn't need

New Lush products - and a few old faves

Hi Everyone,

I went shopping to Brighton the other day which was awesome! I've never been there before and they have so many unusual shops as well as all the usual stores you might want so if you've never been, try and make a trip there if you possibly can. You won't regret it!

Anyway I paid a visit to Lush and they had their seasonal Easter products in so I was powerless to resist! First up was a bubble bar called madame butterfly

It's a bubble bar on a stick so you can

My top 10 Mac eyeshadows

It's no secret that I LOVE my Mac eyeshadows. I reach for them on a daily basis more than any of my other shadows or pallets and they are so long lasting and easy to blend. At £10 each for the refill pans they are a little expensive and it's taken me a while to build up my collection. I often ask for Debenhams vouchers for my birthday and Christmas and use them to get a few new ones. I bought the 15 pan empty pallet and I also have a couple of the 4 pan pallets that I use for travelling

Anyway, onto

Professional Beauty show 2014 at ExCel London

I went to the professional beauty show in London on Sunday which was great but super busy!! I was mainly there to pick up some new makeup and hair stuff as lots of the companies who were exhibiting supply salon equipment and spa treatments etc so I knew I would bypass quite a bit of it. To be honest I knew NYX would be selling their products there at a discount so that was my main mission! We got there about an hour after it opened (I dragged my poor hubby along with me) and we had to pick up our entry badges first

 Once we were in I should have
