Essie Haul and Giveaway Twinkle-Belle Cabana Boy
OK so I didn't intend on buying any more polishes so soon after my Spring Nail Picks, but you know when you're in Boots with a friend and you see the cutest Essie duo ever and then realise it's buy one get one half price, what is girl to do!? I'm so happy with my new Essie polishes, I just have to tell you guys all about them!

Essie Haul and Giveaway Mint Candy Apple Sparkle On Top Cabana Boy
I always like to have a look at the duo's because of course, they are a bargain! So it's great if you can find a pair that you can see yourself using a lot. So of course when I saw Twinkle-Belle I had to pick it up. The first thing that caught my attention was the beautiful incandescent, shimmering and sparkling Sparkle on Top. It's just so beautiful and fun. I love the almost 'shard' like incandescent pieces in this top coat, it makes me feel like a fairy/mermaid queen! I know I can use this all year long. It's so pretty and girly for Summer and will go with sooooo many different shades, but it's also going to be magical for Christmas time too!
Originally the pastel green shade didn't stand out too much for me, until I realised it was Mint Candy Apple. Now everyone and their dog has got this shade or loves this shade, so I already knew I had to buy it. All though it didn't stand out to me at first (come on though, it's hard to stand out when you have a fairy/mermaid twinkling shade next to you!), I do really love this shade. It suits my skin tone, I originally thought it wouldn't, but it really does! I thought I was getting over my mint green obsession but thanks to Mint Candy Apple, apparently not!
Of course it was buy one get one half price, so it would of be rude not to pick up another polish. My friend had her eye on Cabana Boy, a gorgeous pearly white nude. I picked this up too, loving the nude shade and thinking this will be so cute this season, especially with my new Sparkle on Top! I wasn't too in to the pearly formula though, but hey, I bought it anyway! I'm so glad I did, I love the pearly sheen it's so cute and really adds something to your nail, this is going to be great this season, I love a good nude, they are so versatile!

So as you can tell I'm really loving Essie polishes at the moment. I love the massive shade and formula range they have and of course the cute names. They've also won me over with their tapered brushes and always amazing formula! I'm definitely becoming Essie obsessed!
So as a little treat and thank you to you, my lovely followers, I want to treat you to two Essie polishes of your choice! You can enter this giveaway down below and unfortunately it will only be open to UK beauties. All terms and conditions can be found below.
Thank you and Good Luck!

MAC Brave Lipstick & Soar Lip Liner

MAC Brave Lipstick and MAC Soar Lip Liner
Recently I have been absolutely loving the MAC lip combo everyone has been talking about, thanks to the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner bunch, Kylie Jenner. Kylie's lip game is so strong, she's pretty much untouchable, but of course we can all try. As soon as Kylie started wearing these fierce nude shades, we all needed to know how we could get that look, including me...

These gorgeous nude matte shades have been all the rage lately and I personally can't get enough of them. I never really used to wear a matte lip before everyone started going crazy for them, I just had to see what all the fuss was about. I ordered Brave and instantly I loved it. I love the Satin formula as it gives a matte look, but actually feels moisturising, I think this is the perfect formula especially if you're just starting out with the matte lips. Brave is a gorgeous warm pink nude, that would look so fierce on sooooo many different skin types. I also think this will look amazing all year round, it's dark enough to rock Autumn/Winter, but warm enough to pull off Spring/Summer too.
So we've got the lipstick, now onto the liner. I'm just going to come out with it and say it, ok - I have NEVER used lipliner before this! Soar was my first ever lip liner! I know, I call myself some what of a beauty blogger, but this girl has only just discovered lip liner! I was sooo excited and pretty nervous to use my new discovery and can I just say, I have massive respect for you beauties who rock your liner - it's so blimming difficult! As you can tell form the picture below I am no master at the liner yet haha! Anyway onto Soar, Soar is a great shade to pair with Brave. Soar is a little darker than Brave, but has the same gorgeous warm nude/brown pink colour. Personally I prefer a darker liner because then you can actually see it in action. I'm really loving this combo and I can't wait to see it in action this Summer too. I'm also very excited to master the lipliner and add to my collection!

If you read my last post you'll know I've started to think about Spring, so of course today I want to show you my Spring make-up picks. These are the products that I know I'll be loving and using a lot of this spring. To me Spring make-up is all about giving yourself that natural healthy glow, it's about stripping back and trying to get that fresh flirty look. So what are my holy grails this season?
