Foils Gold Nails for £2.25 - You'd Be a Foil Not To!

So, as a student, affording acrylic nails 24/7 just isn't really plausible. Therefore we gotta find ourselves an alternative! Whilst in Boots I stumbled across these House of Holland nails tossed aside from the main stand. To my delight, I then happened upon the giant red sale sign stating they were only £2.25.

I've had House of Holland nails many a time and they always come out top for me in the stick on nail world. Their designs are quirky, unlike anything on the market, and their glue.. their glue is something else!

This pack of nails includes nail glue and a cute little nail file as well as of course the 24 nails. They're super easy to apply: with a quick file of the nail and a bit of glue you're good to go. Typically, when I've worn these they've lasted me about a week which is so incredible for stick on nails! 

I'm such a big fan of having false nails that I really just can't go without, so when I'm having to scrimp a little these really are the perfect alternative to still keep my nails looking good. I really like the gold design on these, they're really cute and I was so shocked to see them on sale for such an amazing price: the glue's worth that alone! 

So, girls, I suggest you get yourselves down to Boots if you want the most gorgeous gold talons for such a small fee! I currently have them on and they're tap, tap, tapping away at my keyboard as I type.

Have you tried any of House of Hollands nails?

Is Blush Queen the Queen of all blush palettes? For £6 - I think so.

Believe it or not, I actually stopped wearing blush for rather a long time. It used to get forgotten over my bronzer and eery thoughts of my younger years definitely led me away from it (let's just say I packed it on!). 

Now though, I honestly believe a little bit on the apples of your cheeks can seriously transform a look. I feel like adding a little bit of colour to your look can make you look way healthy even if you do stuff your face with pizza and takeaway (oh wait, just me again).

What drew me to this palette was the beautiful marbled look of the blush and I just hoped that the colours I was seeing in the palette would transfer like that onto my face and I wasn't disappointed.

I really love Makeup Revolution. Not only are they an affordable brand but they consistently produce high-quality products, most of which I own as I am OBSESSED. I've heard a few people saying that it irks them that they keep on mimicking higher brands however I think that it provides a budget alternative to people who perhaps don't have that high a budget. People are still going to go and buy the higher brands products as obviously they'll be of better quality but it just provides us with an option of being able to own something similar.

As for this blush palette, it's so stunning and it looks just as good on. It's really pigmented and a little bit on your cheeks looks amazing. You don't need to use too much product so you're really getting a lot of bang for your buck.

I also use this as highlighter. The lighter colours can look really beautiful as highlight and when I want to mix up my makeup a bit, I use them!

Overall rating 9/10. The only downfall is that the packaging is super basic and it's just in a black palette however with a budget brand this is to be expected and I think the beautifulness of the blusher itself makes up for what's lacking in packaging.

Do you think Makeup Revolution should stop mimicking higher brands' products?

Has Lush Got A Competitor?

How pretty is this bathbomb?!!?! It's so beaut and I must admit I've never seen anything quite like it. It came in at cheaper than Lush's bathbombs at £2.50 and imo is waaay prettier than anything they have ever produced.

I really love how it looks so pretty, almost like it's edible. There were also lots of different ones available in store: some that had pretty rainbows and even some that were like a fish swimming in water. 

I wasn't even aware Kenji sold bathbombs but I can't wait to purchase more from them! When I put it in the bath it exploded into loads of beautiful pink colours and whilst I have seen slightly prettier colours from Lush when submerged in the bath, this is the first one I've tried from there and I was most definitely not disappointed! It looks dreamy.

I have checked online and they aren't actually featured online yet. I got mine in store in Preston so hopefully if you try in a Kenji store near you they'll have them. 

Have you tried a bathbomb from Kenji?

Technics New Affordable Collection*

So Technic, that brand you hadn't heard that much about, has released some new products and DAMN you're SO going to hear a LOT more about them. 

I was fortunate enough to be sent some of their new collection to share with you all and, honestly they have upped their game.

I was sent one of their makeup brushes and it feels of super high quality even though it's a budget product. It works really well and gets the job done.

As for the mascara, it leaves my lashes so surprisingly long like HOW are these budget products? I thought it may be clumpy but it goes on really well and leaves my lashes looking great.

I also received a highlighter which, when I received it was like the sparkliest thing I'd ever laid my eyes upon. It was so pretty and sparkly that I had to try it out before taking these pictures so it lost some of its sparkle (SORRY I'm super impatient when it comes to products I love the look of).

When it goes on it's like a glowy dream all glitzy and radiant. I actually couldn't believe how stunning it is for a budget product.

Look how pretty it is!!! It's dreamy.

I was also sent this eyeshadow primer which actually turned out to be my favourite product I was sent (though, it was SO close as they all pulled out the stops). It is such a beautifully glitzy primer which looks just stunning below eyeshadow. It really makes the eyeshadow pop and looks absolutely stunning even worn alone. Its staying power is also really great, I struggled to get it off my hand haha!

Finally, I received this lipstick and I was expecting it to be kind of sheer but oh my gosh it's so pigmented and such a gorgeous colour. It reminds me of Kylie Jenners Dolce K which I own as it's such a gorgeous nude colour. A budget product which looks like Kylie's lipstick... not bad, not bad.

All in all, Technic are seriously one to watch. These products are all so impressive and I seriously recommend you take a look at their new collection. I was sent these products so this is a promoted post, however all views are my own. If I wasn't happy with something I would ensure that I let you know! 

Have you tried Technic before?
