Avon Glow Nailwear Pro+ || Review

Hey guys! 
Ok so I say this as seriously as possible but this nail varnish is my ultimate favourite at the moment (and that doesn't come easily, so well done Avon!). 

So it's the Avon Glow Nailwear Pro+ nail enamel in one of the new summer shades Coral Beat. Ah I can't even describe how beautiful this colour is! It's the perfect coral, bright, summery colour that is quite orangey, however that stronger orange tint makes your hands look extremely tanned. 
The one negative I would say is that it isn't the most long lasting nail varnish, and I found that it started to chip after a few days, yet it still didn't put me off due to the amazing colour.
It is also really pigmented, and even though I used two coats, you could definitely get away with just one.
So yeah, in general this is my summer must-have nail varnish and has first place in my holiday suitcase!

This is a product by Avon and if you do not receive Avon Brochures then either contact me or go to the Avon website and 'find a representative' that lives close to you!

June Favourites 2013!

Hey guys, so this is my June Favourites, summer is coming so fast, and so all of my favourites have a place in your summer handbag!
Ok so my first June Favourite is the Simple Purifying Cleansing Lotion.
I'm loving this at the moment because when I come to use it before I go to bed, it feels so nice and cold on my face even though its just been sitting on my shelf the whole day. I use it to remove my makeup (after using eye makeup remover) and it just is so nice and moisturising as well as doing a good job.

Then I chose the Sleek oh so special Eyeshadow Palette.
I originally got this because I was planning to use the gold and coral colours for my prom, but after trying it out a few times, I am absolutely in love with it! These colours are just beautiful. There are some pale pinks, nudes and browns but also some sparkly shades and then towards the end a few darker and matte colours. My favourite combo at the moment is having Ribbon all over the lid with Wrapped Up blended into the crease creating a shadow, with Bow on the inner corners as a highlight. This is such a good look for a summer evening and the eyeshadow are so soft and blend so nicely. Massive thumbs up for this palette!

Ok so next is my favourite lip duo which is the Rimmel Apocalips in 500 Luna with the Avon Colortrend Lipstick in Doll Pink.
Now these two shades on their own are very bright. The Apocalips is a muted orange colour and the Avon one is very bright fushcia pink - very similar to Mac Candy Yum Yum. However I love these colours when blended together because they make the best coral-pink colour which is perfect for summer, and this combination lasts so long whilst still feeling soft.

Then we have the Avon Angled Blusher Brush.
This brush is amazingly perfect for contouring and blush because the angle allows you to have the perfect sweep of your cheeks, and because of the quite thick density of the bristles, it means you pick up enough on the brush to use without wasting as much. I love this brush and will be taking it with me everywhere from now on in case of touch up emergencies!

Lastly we have the Limited Edition Barry M Nail Paint in the colour A(?!)
I'm not sure of the exact colour name because it only says A but basically if you go into a boots/superdrug shop then there's an offer which you get this free if you spend a certain amount of money. So I didn't actually intentionally buy this nail varnish, I got if for free, but I'm very glad I did! It's a slightly muted neon pink colour which I think is perfect for holidays or festivals as its very bright but not too extreme. I'd definitely recommend getting this for your summer.

Ok so I hope you liked my June Favourites so like and follow for more beauty posts!
