A Few New Beauty Buys

I seemed to have accumulated quite a few new purchases from the beauty aisles over the past month or so, so I thought I would give you the lowdown on what I have picked up and a few first impressions.

Barry M Nail Paint in Pacific - Not going to lie I basically picked this up as it resembled a mermaid to me as soon as I saw it. It comes from there Aquarium Collection which featured a number of different dreamy colours. I have always been impressed with Barry M nail polishes in there colour range and finishes, so I snapped this up to see how this performs and if it looks as dreamy when applied to my nails, it is an absolute steal at £3.99.

Revlon Perfumerie in African Tea Rose - Simply picked this up as it intrigued me so much as it is featured in Revlons new nail varnish collection which have scents. The colour is vivid and a bright fuschia pink, I think I will be getting a lot of use out of this within the next coming months. There are 20 in this new collection which is a really big amount for us avid nail varnish lovers, and I think the price tag of £6.49 is reasonably alright.

Maybelline Brow Drama in Dark Blonde - I bought this in Dark Blonde as my hair is naturally blonde therefore meaning I wanted it to match my colouring, although I was unsure which shade to pick up as I do like my eyebrows to be a light chocolate brown colour. But this was differently the right choice as it sets darker than it looks. For £4.99 it is differently a budget buy in comparison to Benefits Gimme Brow, which I am yet to try. First impressions are that it is a little clumpy, but maybe that is because I am just not used to applying a product like this. It just felt not quite right putting a mascara on my eyebrows I know the product is a sculpting brow mascara but I just don't think we are not going to be the best of friends. I am going to continue to use this when I have the time and patience to properly sit down and test it out.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Frambourjoise -This is another new release from Bourjois in the form of a matte finish lipgloss. There was lots of different choices on the display, I was in a bit of a manic rush when I picked this up. Unfortunately I am not a massive fan of the colour of it on my lips it doesn't quite go with my complexion. I am willing to keep trying it in different ways as the finish and pigmentation is really beautiful in the product. At £8.99 it is not the cheapest product on the drugstore beauty market, but in comparison to other high end brands this could differently be a little a perfect pairing with the right colour.
