Product Empties #2

Hi everyone! Today I've got an empties post for you. I haven't written an empties post since August so I thought I would write one as I've collected up a few more products. These are products that I have used between September and October. 

This heat defence spray has lasted me for about 4 months now. I haven't seen a difference in my hair quality, but I don't have many split ends. I probably wouldn't repurchase this as I'd love to try other brands. This spray does smell quite and it does spray an even amount onto your hair so that's a plus. 

I love this shampoo as it makes my hair silky soft! It makes my hair feel much more glossy and look more shiny. I have noticed as well that it strengthens my hair without weighing it down. I will definitely repurchase this again as its really affordable.

I believe I received this for Christmas last year but I never got round to using it! The smell of this is divine and really does last on your skin for a long time. I have found that this does a great job of exfoliating my skin and removing dead skin cells. It also leaves my skin really soft afterwards! I have linked the 200ml version as I can't find the 50ml version on the website. I will continue to repurchase this!

This is so cheap and works really well! The scent is really refreshing especially in the morning. It foams up really nicely and leaves the scent on your skin for a long time. I will repurchase this in different scents as they have so many more in the range. 

I picked up this little sample while I was looking around in Boots. Unfortunately this didn't really do much to my skin. It feel like it wasn't exfoliating my skin at all as there weren't any exfoliating beads or grains in it. Although It did make my skin feel quite soft and smooth. I wouldn't buy the full size of it as I don't think it is worth it considering it is £20!

Planet Spa Mediterranean Olive Oil Body Butter
I have been using skincare products from this range for years as its so moisturizing! It sinks into my skin straight away leaving a lovely fresh scent. I tend to go through these quite quickly as i'm addicted to the smell! I will repurchase this after I've used up some other body butters/lotions

Max Factor Wild Shadow Eyeshadow Pencils review

Hi Everyone! First of all i'm so sorry I haven't posted in a while, I've had huge amounts of schoolwork to do :( So a few weeks ago I was lucky enough to win a giveaway on Milkteef's Blog to win the Max Factor Wild Collection makeup. I was so excited to try these as they looked so colourful and different to my other makeup that I own. Today i'm going to be reviewing the eyeshadow pencils

(From left to right) Untamed Pink, Caramel Rage, Ice Fury, Fierce Lime, Bold Sapphire, Vicious Moss, Brazen Gold, Savage Silver. 

As you can see these eyeshadow pencils come in a range of colours for all occasions and different makeup looks. These eyeshadow pencils are 2-in-1 and can be used for eyeshadow and eyeliner. This makes them pretty handy if you are travelling as you can use them for two different purposes.

The pencils are very pigmented and are really blendable. They also are long lasting which makes it great as you don't need to reapply them. The shades are quite shimmery and have glitter in them, making them perfect for parties or any other special occasions. They glide onto your skin easily and look great blended out in to the crease.

These are a fun way to to add a pop of colour to your eyes as they really stand out, but also are really wearable. The quality is great and the texture is really smooth even with glitter and shimmer in it! I cant wait to use these for Christmas as i'm sure they would look great with most outfits. You can buy these at Boots for £5.99 each.

My Autumn Nail Polish Favourites

Hi everyone! Long time no see, Today i'm going to be showing you my favourite nail polishes for Autumn. I love metalic nail colours for Autumn as they spice up an outfit and look great for day and night. So lets get started.

17 Nail polish
I got this nail polish last Christmas in a set so I don't think you will be able to buy it separately. This is a gorgeous turquoise colour that looks similar to the nail polishes you'd find in Topshop. You only need a few coats with this and it will last for a few days.

This is a gorgeous glittery pink colour that would look great for nights out and for Christmas. I got this quite a while ago but I've managed to find it on the Boots website. The only problem I have with this is that it does take while to get off with nail polish remover as it does have glitter in it. This is also really long lasting as well.

I bought this nail varnish from as it was really cheap, around £2. This is my first matte suede nail polish so I was intrigued to try it. It is a gorgeous burgundy/ wine colour that looks perfect with autumn clothes. However it does come out darker than it looks in the bottle, so you only need about 2 coats of it. This lasts around 5 days so it is long lasting. 

A purple shade for Autumn is a must have as they are really wearable! You can buy this from Superdrug. This is my favourite one from Barry M. As you can see it does have some shimmer in it which looks really nice on your nails. The swatch unfortunately came out much darker than it actually is so you might have to Google search for some swatches! This is a real bargain at £2.99 and is a must have for Autumn.

I absolutely love the colour of this and would look great with most outfits in Autumn. I also bought this from The quality is really good considering it was only £1.99. The brush is fairly small but still applies the nail polish evenly.  I would definitely recommend Calvin Klein nail polishes as you can find them on the internet for really cheap prices.

Hope you enjoyed reading this post!
