My Top 5 Autumn Nail Polishes

So when the seasons change we all know that what shade you wear on your nails is important, the colour on you nails can brighten up even the dullest outfit. So I thought why not share some of my favourite shades of this Autumn with you all.

1 - BarryM Lychee
 This nail polish is more of a neutral shade for Autumn. This polish is from a brand called BarryM, this is from the Gelly Hi-Shine range that they bought out a couple of months ago in the UK. This is in the shade 328 Lychee. I like this shade because if you were wearing quite a vibrant outfit with multiple autumnal colours you could wear this to ensure that you weren't going over board on the colour front. I personally would say that this is a great transitioning shade between summer and Autumn as it looks great with a tan, but also looks great when your tan sadly starts to fade going into the colder months.

 2 - BarryM Watermelon
 The next polish is also from the BarryM Gelly Hi-Shine range, I personally love this colour I bought it in the summer time and absolutely fell in love its a deep green colour which goes by the name of 234 Watermelon. In the summer I  used this colour as a accent colour on my ring finger. But now that the colder months are here I love wearing it on all my nails. I love the shade and the colour pay of is brilliant, I would definitely recommend buying from the BarryM Gelly Hi-Shine range as the polishes them selves are only a brilliant £3.99 which I personally think is a fantastic price. You can buy this by clicking this link
3- TopShop Rumours&Lies
 This nail polish was a must have for me I only bought it a couple of weeks ago but since then I have worn it on my nails 80% of the time. This is a nail polish that I bought from TopShop its called Rumours&Lies. This is the perfeccct Autumnal shade and I love it. Its such an easy colour to wear and I believe it would look fantastic on anyone. The TopShop nail polishes last very well and hardly chip if used with a base and top coat. You can buy this by clicking this link.
4 - Essie Penny Talk
 I received this next nail polish a couple of months ago in a Glossy Box and I just couldn't wait to wear it, I did wear it throughout the summer months but, always thought that it was more of a Autumnal shade. This is a nail polish from Essie, in shade 216a Penny Talk. This colour looks a little rose gold, so I was very excited as I love rose gold. Like Essie nail polishes are as always this is brilliant, wonderful colour pay of and very long lasting. If you haven't tried a polish from the brand before I would certainly recommend that you do so. They are a little more expensive that the like of BarryM But they are definitely worth it. You can buy this product by click this link.
5 - Topshop Awol
 This is another TopShop nail polish as you can probably tell I love nail polishes from I have also done a review on TopShop nail polishes in the past so if you would like to read more then check it out. This shade has been a favourite of mine throughout the summer months and although its probably not a Autumnal shade I love it. So I'm going to make it mine, I have seen a lot of this colour on the catwalk at LFW so It cant be all that bad. This is the shade Awol, I think that this nail polish has the potential to brighten up any outfit. You can buy this product by clicking this link.

All used up #1

This might not be something that you normally read, but I love reading them and watching you tube videos of them. I enjoy them because you get a whole bunch of mini reviews and recommendations from them. I will basically be showing you a bunch of products that I have used up within the last couple of months.

The first product I used up was the Herbal Essences Bee Strong Strengthening Intensive Mask with honey and apricot extracts. When I first saw this range being released I was quite excited I love anything honey scented. I bought this along with the shampoo and conditioner, I have used those up as well but they got thrown out by my mum I think. All round the whole range is amazing, the tub contains 200 ml of product. Which seems a lot but because I have quite long hair I didn't get that many uses out of this. I would definitely buy more products from this range. It made my hair feel amazing and smell delightful. I will definitely repurchase this product.

I love this product, I was recommended this and fell in love, I had to buy this on Amazon I think it didn't cost too much and it just worked wonders for my skin. This is the Cetaphil Daily Cleanser for normal to oily skin. I used this every morning and evening, I just loved it. I was a great make up remover and I just felt like this really stopped my skin from being as oily as it was. I would definitely repurchase this, I already have except I bought one from boots thinking it was the same and it wasn't it was one from the sensitive skin range and It didn't do anything for me. So I will be looking out to buy this again very soon.

There is not much I can say about this it is the Elegant Tough Nail Polish Remover for artificial nails, I bought this by mistakes as I don't normally wear false nails, but this was brilliant for removing the dreaded glitter nail polish. It working beautifully, and removed the glitter with out a lot of effort.

This is the Sure Women Maximum Protection in everyday fresh, I was recommended this by my sister. Its wonderful, I used this at night times after I had a shower and then left it to work into the skin. When I used this I found that it worked as it should it was amazing and I will definitely repurchase this.

As you can probably tell I love this foundation, I have been using this everyday for the last couple of months, I did change out my foundation for the summer but I was straight back to using this again. It gives you that natural skin look, its easy to blend, you don't need to do much too it. The only other thing I do other than applying this and concealer is powder but that's because I have quite oily skin. Others may not have a problem, I have already repurchased this and I have nearly used that one as well. This is the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in shade 103 True Ivory.

These are the T-Zone Instant Fix Nose Pore Strips, there is not much I can say about these you apply them to your nose and they will slowly harden. Once they have hardened they can be removed, this will allow them to pull out any blackheads or impurities in your skin. I have repurchased these.

This is the Lavera Pore Refining Moisture Fluid, I did like this product but I wont be repurchasing it as I have found better results for my skin from other products.

This is the St Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub, I bought this product as I was going to London for the weekend so I bought a little scrub to take with me. I loved it, Its amazing I only use this on my face and I love how it works with my skin, it makes my skin feel super smooth after using and the feel of dry skin has gone. I will be repurchasing the larger size of this product.

Batiste Dry Shampoo In Lace, this is something everyone should have, I'm not too keen on this type but everyone should have dry shampoo. It dries up the oil in your hair and keeps your hair looking fresh between washes. I don't know what I would do with out a dry shampoo.

I received this product in a Glossy Box a couple of months ago and I fell in love this is the Nip + Fab Coconut Latte dry skin fix body butter. The scent of this product was just amazing, now that I have gotten round to writing this post I am wondering why I haven't bought another. I loved this product it made my skin look amazing and smelt very good as well. 

Thanks so much for reading

Glossy Box October

I am quite enjoying the fact that glossy boxes now come with a little magazine and then a little card telling you what product the box encloses. I have found that I am actually reading the magazine, because normally I wouldn't read the leaflet that came in the older boxes.

Product - Eva Cosmetics Mystic Diamond Argonoil
Basically this product is a little bit like everything else that has been storming the haircare industry within the last couple of years, but this has a little something extra, it does contain Argon oil which will work to nourish and regenerate your hair giving it volume and preventing frizz. But this contains diamond powder which claims to give your hair a shine like never before.
This product costs £22.70 for 100ml

Product - Katy Perry Killer Queen Fragrance
This is the newest fragrance from Katy Perry
This product costs £29.50 for a 50ml bottle

Product - Monu Illuminating Primer
This product costs £24.95 for 50ml

Product - Premae Multi-Vtit Smoothie Serum
This product is totally allergen-free which means it is more than kind to your skin. You use this product before moisturising or you can mix this with your usual foundation to make a BB cream.
This product costs £22.50 for a 50ml

Product - MeMeMe Cherub's Blush - Cheek & Lip Tint
I have always loved the idea of these products but never actually bought one, its such a easy item to carry around in your make up bag, for a dash of colour to both your lips and cheeks. 
This product costs £5.50 for a 12ml

Glossy Box September

I know first of that this post is very very late but I basically, lost track of time and before I knew it I had two Glossy Box's sitting there waiting to be photographed and written about.
I am going to shorten these down a little with just a little brief description on what's in the box rather than waffling on like I normally do.

I was quite excited about the packaging as it was lovely, it was created to represent London Fashion Week which took place in London in September.

Product - Elizabeth Arden Untold
This is a perfume, the packaging is amazing, I love how much thought has gone into the design of this product I just hope as much thought has gone into the scent.
This product cost between £48 - £69 depending on the size you buy.

Product - Rimmel Stay Blushed Blusher
Shade - 001 pop of pink
This is a liquid lip tint, a little goes a long way. I believe this is a great autumn winter shade.
This product costs £4.49 for 14ml

Product - TONI&GUY Hair meet wardrobe, classic shine & gloss serum
This product doesn't really excite me that much as I have quite shiny hair already but, If I see a big difference in my hair I will be sure to review it on here.
This product costs £7.19 for 30ml

Product - Eylure Pre-Glued Lashes 
Type - 191
I am not really a fan of false lashes, if I wear them I would normally use a more natural looking lash, so these probably aren't right for me.
This product costs £5.06 for one set

Product - Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Onyx Eye Liner
Shade - Black
I like the look of this product and quite look forward to using it, It is a felt tip liner in black. I love felt tip liners, this looks very easy to use also.
