NOTD - Essie Mint Candy Apple

Hey ladies! I've been having a bit of an obsession wth Essie nail polishes lately, ever since they became readily available in Boots, you can pretty much guarantee that whenever I'm in there I'll make a visit to the Essie stand and ogle at all the pretty shades! anyone else do the same? Anyway enough of my love for Essie, onto the actual nail polish!


The infamous Essie 'Mint Candy Apple' is my newest edition, it's a shade I've always had my eye on and I really dont know why it took me so long to get it! it's a perfect summery shade, (not that we've really had much of a summer in England) but at least with this on my nails I can feel like I'm living in the Bahamas! ok maybe not.

 As the name suggests it's a mint green shade, but with a hint of blue kind of reminds me of a Tiffany's box. It's just lovely! I've been wearing this constantly since I purchased it! Apply two coats of this and your good to go!

If you've tried Essie polishes I would love to know what are some of your favourite shades? So that next time i'm ogling at Essie in Boots I can check them out!

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Rendezvous

Hey lovelies! Today I thought I would share with you a lip product I've been loving recently! Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 'Rendezvous' I'm sure you've heard lots about these balm stains already as they have been talked about all over the place, I was quite late in purchasing one because there wasn't really any colours that caught my attention, but when I was in boots recently I saw the shade 'Rendezvous' if you've read my blog before you'll probably know I love orangy/peachy lip products, so I was immediately drawn to it.



Firstly I love the packaging of these, they are obviously very similar to the Clinique chubby sticks, but cheaper at £7.99 although at the moment they are £5.99 at Boots. They smell of mint when you first apply them which I really like, I also like the way these feel on the lips, they are not at all drying like a typical lip stain, hence the name 'balm stain.' I find them to be very long lasting, pigmented, and natural looking. The shade 'Rendezvous is a nice vibrant orange.

I really can't find anything bad to say about them, If you haven't tried them already go check them out! If you have tried them let me know what you think? Whats your favourite shades?

Unite 7 Seconds Leave In Detangler - Review


I first heard about this product from Fleur from Fleurdeforce, since then I heard more people raving about it! It's basically a leave in conditioner/detangler which mainly focuses on detangling the hair and making it more manageable. My hair is a Pain, it's quite long and gets very tangly quite quickly, which can cause damage and breakage, so I was really intrigued about this product and wanted to see if it would help my hair.

And it did! After I've shampooed and conditioned my hair and it's towel dry I spray around 10-12 sprays of this throughout my hair, the bottle says 4-6 but I tend to use more, then I comb through my hair and that's it! I usually just leave my hair to dry naturally. I have seen definite results with this product. It does just what I was hoping it to do! My hair isn't as tangly as it used to be, brushing my hair is so much easier if there are any tangles they just brush straight out, It leaves my hair feeling/looking smooth and healthy. Plus it smells amazing! Not only that but it also contains a UV and thermal protector so it's a all round multitasking product, it conditions, detangles and protects. I love this product, I haven't gone with out it since purchasing a few weeks ago.

Now it is quite hard to get hold of in the UK, the only place I heard you could get it was in a few salons around London, which is great if you live in London, not so great if your like me and live 3 hours away! But after searching online I found one place that stocked it! You can get it for £14.85 plus delivery at Urbanretreat.co.uk/beautique it came in around 2-3 days, along with a couple of samples which is always nice!
