These were on the clearance selves in Boots, £1.50 each and I got 10 products out of it, impressive I think.

In the past I've bought false nails from Wilkinson's, really cheap ones for 99p just to see whether they were any sort of good; well not really, they pop off quite easily, but if your willing to carry the nail glue around with you (and be aware of where the nail has dropped) and reapply it numerous times throughout the day then for 99p there isn't much you can moan about rationally.
These Broadway nails are supposed to do a 7 day wear so we will see how they hold out.
Application is as usual, choose nails that best fit your own nail bed, then apply glue to the nail and press on until secure. the tab did make it somewhat more easy, and I did get less glue on my fingers while positioning the false nail in place because of the tab, but it is a bit difficult to get good control just because of the size of the false nail compared to the little tab.
I always find that I start getting the hang of putting them on by nail five, and then I have to use my left hand (when I'm right handed) and lose the ability again... (ppptttthhh sound)
Then I cut the nail down a bit and began filing away like a mad sander. And get to a length and shape am happy with, or alternatively get to a point where I refuse to file away anymore and that's that.
Then I put my base coat on and the colour I wanted, which is from Boots, 17 High Glow Nail Polish in colour Cocoa Berry (I love nail polish names!), it costs £3.49 but I think I got it when it was 3 for 2 anyway. Then I did a top coat, and let my hands pose for pictures.

My hair is naturally curly, so when I dry it with a hairdryer it transforms itself into a frizz so intense that even though my mum has seen it many, many times, she still laughs hysterically at me when she sees my hair post-hairdryer.
So I started using this and it works, taming the frizz, doesn't weigh my hair down and make it get greasy any quicker than normally, I can even put it on my roots and it won't get greasy, which in my books is a sign of great craftsmanship. And makes it soft, hence why I've almost finished the tube. My mum said she can only get it from Sainsbury's so am not sure where else you can get it.
My lips have serious moisture problems, most of the time they are somewhat chapped, and the rest they are at the stage of dry and rough that they hurt, so I always use some sort of lip balm, and do lots and lots of reapplying throughout the day. I've been using Lypsyl Original for quite a while now, I've used about six altogether and get through about one every two weeks (but like I said, I am always reapplying) and it is really good, when they are not dry it prevents them from getting that way, and other times, e.g when I went Alton towers and woke up the next morning with lips bright red and sore, they help soothe them
I get it from Wilkinson's for a cheap amount.
I got the No7 Mineral Perfection Blusher when there was a voucher offer on, I think it was £5 off £8.75 so it was a good bargain. I like this product because it is seriously long lasting and gives a really nice soft, airbrushed finish, and paired with bronzer it adds really nice colour to my face. Plus you only need a little bit of product and is going to last ages.
The only thing I don't like is the packaging, but I don't like the sifter jars in general, wish it was exactly the same just different container.
I got colour Rose Pink 05.
My sister kept on telling me to try Collection 2000 Volume Sensation Waterproof Mascara out, she has been swearing by it for quite a while; I think I've seen about four tubes in her room. So I finally decided that I would give it ago.
I like it; it is buildable and is good at separating lashes and making them thick and long..long, long; when I was wearing my glasses one time my lashes kept touching the glass which was both annoying, and impressive.
The brush is big and chunky and sometimes I have a problem with hitting the bridge of my nose at the sides because of the brush size, but to fix that you just have to be more careful.
When it comes to removing it I do have to work at it a lot harder than my other mascaras but I think that's because it looks exactly the same as it does at night when I put it on 12 hours ago in the morning, and isn't one to melt away throughout the day. As long as you're willing to take it off properly then there is no problem, but otherwise you end up with what looks like really bad bags under your eyes. Both all worth, it in my opinion.
To me it smells like bounty chocolate but no-one else agrees with me, my mum thinks it smells like marzipan..... so go smell it yourself if you think you might want it.

I stopped at my boyfriends place Friday to Sunday night, and before now I've forgotten basic stuff, like clean underwear, hay fever tablets etc... minor things.
But this weekend I forgot my mascara(!), when I realised I stated forcefully to Daniel (the boyfriend) that he was going to be driving me to a super market so I could buy some mascara (we live about 45minutes apart so going home for my mascara wasn't really optional), he laughed, thinking I was joking, well I wasn't.
While trying to convince him that I was being deadly serious his mum asked what was up, and this is the part where every woman really does have a part of them that understands this kind of stuff, while men really dont.
Having explained she selflessly offered me her mascara to use (which I know your not suppose to do, but it was that or be forced to get a bus to a super market in a town I didn't know because Daniel still thinks am joking) so I use it and we're talking about how vital mascara really is, out of all makeup items, mascara comes in top with concealer for me (what's your must wear makeup?).
Anyway, the point of this whole ramble is that her mascara was L'oreal telescopic, which I would never have just picked up myself in a shop (something about the wand puts me off), but I am defiantly going to now, it works very impressively, giving serious length and isn't bad on the thickening of the lashes either.
So I may have an upcoming haul with this mascara in it, hopefully anyway.
