Everyone and their nan has these little treasures. Unfortunately, unlike everyone and their nan I so cannot afford the full size versions (20+€? no thanks). So last year when Glamour mag was giving them away free I made sure I picked up a few. I'm sure you've all read countless reviews on these products, I know I have. 'Posie Tint' is possible the best tint I've ever tried. It's just this lovely girly pink and I love to apply a dot or three to my cheeks to give a proper natural glow. Especially when I'm going for a more 'nautral look'. I do use a bit on my lips the odd time and it looks super nice. Its find it lasts a good 6 or so hours and doesn't rub off when I'm enjoying a good aul cuppa tea ;)
'High Beam' I don't use an awful lot unless I'm going on a night out. I never find myself really reaching for highlighter type products so I don't know how good this is compared to others on the market. But I enjoy using it. It hs a real nice consistency and blends in around my eyes nicely. I love how it's a real subtle pinky colour.
Any of you guys tried these or picked them up with Glamour?
This is my favourite thing in my make up bag. I use it every day without fail (right now I've hit the pan). I've repurchased this quite a lot and will be doing so again. It's probably the only thing in my make up routine which hasn't changed in the last year or two. It's very inexpensive and applies nicely over my foundation. I find that if there's the odd night I go out and I haven't worn this my skin looks very shiny in photos compared to other nights when I've applied it. A simple swish down your t-zone is enough to reduce shininess but I apply all over just to give my make up that 'finished' look and to help keep it in place. I'm not really into the whole dewy complexion and i love the nice matte finish this gives.
Have any of you guys given this a whirl?

Messy hair with a bit of volume has been my go to style for the last month or two. I honestly cannot remember the last time I had my hair poker straight. My hair is currently thanking me for not straightening the shit out of it by looking way healthier than it has in years. I think messy/wavy hair is so simple to do yet looks amazing without all the effort of 'styling'. I'm currently deciding whether to dye my hair a lovely dark chestnut brown á la Shenae Grimes (2nd Picture) or add a few little blonde streaks and chop in some front layers to give it a bit of movement (4th picture). Pinterest is great for just plopping all my 'hair inspiration'. Waves and messy plaits are all I think about lately.

For spring I like a lot of fresh, fruity, musky scented perfumes. Lovestruck I've already done a post on here if you'd rather check that out. Daisy by Marc Jacobs I've had a while now. 2 years I think? It really lasts, like the amount in the bottle has barely gone down at all. The scent is what I would describe as floral? There are hints of jasmine (i can smell jasmine a mile away), and musk. But theres some hints of something else that I can't put my finger on. It's a fresh smell but still strong. I love this perfume so much that it's where I got the name for my dog....'Daisy'. Miss Dior Chérie smells very like the majority of Soap and Glory products. So if you don't like S&G you probably won't like this very much. The scent is a lovely musky girly one with a hint of Jasmine. Everytime I wear it, it reminds me of the school trip we took to Italy. The Jlo perfume is incredibly fruity with hints of what I would describe as lemon and peach with a touch of spice.? Its very fun smelling and exotic. I just love the colourful bottle. These are my go to perfumes for spring. I have far too many perfumes so tend to switch around with each season. What perfumes are you loving right now?
Little disappointed that the sun has disappeared.....considering I bought some summer clothes on Friday. I probably jinxed myself. Bringing a splash of colour back into my day with some nail polish. Catrice have the best polish. Dry's really quickly which is great because i'm one of those people who always smudges their nail polish before it dry's. Usually lasts me a few days too. Barely chips. I just peel it off when I get bored. The shade of this is '170| Scream Peach!'
Any of you tried out these nail polishes? Whats your favourite shade?
Infrared' as my favorite Topshop lippy. The colour is incredible. Sort of a candy pink, its very sweet like, girly and vibrant. I've been wearing it all day and its just added that lovely splash of colour on an otherwise dull day. It doesn't last very long. I'd say about 3hours? But I think its pigmentation and finish make up for that. It's very creamy, which I'm actually starting to like. I'd definitely recommend you try it.
'Neon Rose' is such a pretty colour. It applies as a cream but turns into more of a powder blush on your skin. I'm really liking using this. I'm usually more drawn to peaches and light pinks so this is an interesting change for me. It's subtle on your cheeks, not too in your face. I apply with my fingers and blend in with a brush.

Any recommendations from Topshop? What do you think of the packaging? I know a lot of people don't like it because it gets dirty quickly.....
