Sally Hansen - Pat On The Black!

Another Sunday, another colour! You will always catch me painting my nails on a Sunday afternoon, ready for the week ahead. I'm going through this crazy phase at the moment that every time I paint my nails, it has to be a colour I haven't applied before (my excuse for buying new nail polish each week). This week I have been trying the Sally Hansen Salon Manicure nail polish. Can we all just stop what we're doing and admire these beauties for a minute? I love that they're 14.7ml compared to the 8ml or 12ml norm bottles I use.

I love the brush on the Salon Manicure nail polishes, they are quite large (not as large as the Rimmel Salon Pro brush) but just as good. The formula is amazing, the colours are quite pigmented except for their nude-ish pinky shades - they tend to need 3 coats rather than 2. My nails are super shiny that I even questioned whether or not I needed a top coat for the very first time. Overall, they are just amazing and I cannot wait to extend my collection. So far my favourite colours include: Pat On The Black, Shall We Dance and Pink Slip. Would definitely recommend this range to anyone who loves painting their nails!

Have you tried the Sally Hansen Salon Manicure yet?

60 Seconds Colour Rush by Rita Ora - White Hot Love

Absolutely loving this pearl white shade new from the Rimmel 60 Seconds range by Rita Ora. Perfect colour for spring and this colour just instantly lifts my mood. White nails are bang on trend this season, so pick yours up before they all go! 

Tip - White nail polish is very streaky because of the pigments. Be sure to apply a top coat every other day to maintain them!

Anastasia Contour Kit | Products

Have I been living under a beauty rock? I totally have, as I've only just discovered the amazing Anastasia brand. After watching hundreds of videos and reviews, I'm placing an order right now from Cult Beauty to get my hands on some of her amazing eyebrow products in particular.

My most wanted product from the brand is the Contour Kit which is to be released in July. The palette contains 6 contour/highlight colours which can be easily used with a beauty blender and brush to get that perfect corrective contour and highlight. It's £45 and if you sign up to the wish list you'll be the first to know when it's on sale. I literally cannot wait for this to be released, it's going to be amazing and it's gonna get sold out so quickly...So be prepared! I'm going to place my order on a few eye brow products now...if you haven't checked out the products....go go go!

Revlon Colour Burst Matte Balm - Elusive

I have this bad habit of 'popping' into Boots and always coming out with at least one thing that I don't need. I picked up the new Colour Burst Matte lip balm from Revlon in 'Elusive' which is a bright pink. In all honesty, I thought I was buying a neutral pinkish kind of colour so it was a bit of shock when I saw how bright this was on my lips. On Asian skin tones, it's more of a barbie kind of pink. 

The Revlon Colour Burst Matte balm is definitely pigmented, so the colour pay off is great for a balm product. It does have that minty scent and taste, and most importantly can emphasise dry areas on the lips as with any matte lip product. To prevent dry patches on the lips, apply lip balm a few minutes before applying any matte lip product especially if you suffer from dry lips. 

Overall I think they're great, however I wasn't 100% impressed with the colour I picked up, so I guess that's another excuse to 'pop' to Boots again ;)

Have you tried the Revlon Colour Burst Matte Balm yet?
