Pink glitter nails + ELF code!

So i've finished college for the half term and I am SO excited that I can finally do my nails as i'm not allowed anything on my nails for college!
This was kind of an experiment, I painted my nails pink and then used a silver glitter on the ends. On a couple I did more like a silver tip but on other i kind of tried to graduate it, I dunno what happened but I think the outcome is quite nice and I like it anyway!
 The pink colour is from avon and I can't remember the name of it and the silver glitter is barry m!

Also e.l.f. have yet another offer on! When you spend £10 you get a free mystery goodie bag worth at least £10 eeee! I needed a few bits anyway so thought I may aswell put my order in now, so i'm gonna do it straight after this post! The code is JACKPOT325 or if you're in italy it's JACKPOT325IT

When my order arrives i'll definitely do a post on the bits i'm buying!

Hair colour?! Help!

Right I am so bored of my hair as it's been the same colour for a while now so you guys have got to help me out okay! I've been blonde for years but i've been all sorts of different shades so i'm gonna show you some pictures and if you could comment which one you think looks best to help me with which colour I should be!

I know one picture is bigger but i made this on paint and the picture was bigger and when i shrunk it it went all fuzzy so yeah, it stayed big! As you can see ive been quite white blonde, a more ashy blonde, a more natural blonde and a more gingery darker blonde! I will always be blonde so any comments that I would suit brown which i quite often get will not work haha!

So yeah I can't chooose so please help me?!

No7 Beautiful Skin Eye Make Up Remover

I've used this eye make up remover for over a year now and I just wanted to post about it as I love it! It's the only eye make up remover i've found I can use as it's hypoallergenic and I have such sensitive eyes! It's so gentle and so is great as the skin around your eyes is so delicate, it doesn't leave them red and you don't need to rub away, just keep wiping and it dissolves your make up. It does leave your eyes a bit greasy but I don't see this as a problem as it's usually the night time when you take your make up off and the greasiness is gone by the morning.

 As you can see in the picture it separates into two layers and so you have to shake it up before you use it and it turns into SUCH a nice colour, like it is literally gorgeous!

As well as removing your eye make up well, it actually looks after your eyelashes. After using this I found that my eyelashes grew longer and are in much better condition! In this picture i'm wearing one layer of Natural Collection Lash Build mascara and would say my eyelashes are fairly long thanks to this product!

 Hope you liked this post and if you try or have tried this product let me know what you think of it, or if you think there is a better hypoallergenic product out there also let me know!

Choccy philly? Don't be silly!

Okay so I know I just did a post like an hour or so ago BUT...
So I was at my friends aunties house and she told us that if you put this on digestive biscuits it tastes like chocolate cheesecake, so obviously I just HAD to try it...

I was a bit worried that it was gonna taste cheesy but it doesn't at all! It just tastes like chocolate and although im not sure it tastes like chocolate cheesecake, it still tastes SO good!!
mini cheesecake?
And obviously i couldn't not try the chocolate strawberry mix with it?! This also tastes so good!
So, in conclusion, everyone must run quicker than Usain Bolt to your local Sainsbury's and buy some choccy philly which is definitely not silly for just 78p whilst its on half price, along with some digestives and strawberries!

Now i'm off to gain 5 stone via choccy philly

JLS: The 4th Dimension

So I went to see JLS at the O2 Arena last night and it was AMAZING! They honestly do the best live performances i've ever seen! I was in the 20th row back and I was so close I nearly got my eyebrows singed off by the fire shooting machine thingys..! 
How close i was!
I love going to see JLS because along with their amazing voices they actually put on a good performance with their shows having a story to it and by literally flying in, coming through the crowd and going over the crowd on a giant metal triangle!

Last time I went to the tour Aston sung 'That's my girl' to me, eeeeek yes it was amazing! And so this time I thought I may not have such a good time as it would be about 0.0000001% chance of that happening again and so it wouldn't quite live up to the last time, however I actually think it was better than the last tour and I also still got some contact with the JLS boys...

They had a mini stage in the middle of the crowd which they flew in and landed on and so how ever are they going to get to the main stage without walking round the sides and past the crowd, eeee! I managed to stroke Aston and Oritse which maybe made me a bit tooooo excited..
When they came past!
Before they performed they also had a few performances from a band called nvs or something which i wasn't overly impressed by, Starboy Nathan who I loved and a girlband called Vida which I loved aswell!

So I had such a goood night and am already so excited for the next tour, eeee!

The end, aww I love this picture!

New Collection 2000 HORRID Foundation!

Okay so basically i usually use Collection 2000 Naturally Radiant foundation which i really like and i've heard that some of the other Collection 2000 foundations are good and whilst i was shopping i saw they have a new one out. I'm running out of my usual one and so i thought i'd try the new one and see what it's like, their new foundation is called Naturally Matte and it is HORRIBLE.

I used it the next day and i was so disappointed! The foundation is really watery and when you apply it it just does not blend in, it goes patchy and dries horrible and if you try to blend it it rubs off like a rubber when you rub out pencil and it has no coverage what so ever just ajuhnriuhreu ergh. DO NOT like this at allllll! When i was like 12 years old i bought the Natural Collection £1.99 foundation and if you have ever tried this you will know how absolutely vile this foundation is and i have to say the Collection 2000 one reminds me of this! So today i went and bought my usual naturally radiant foundation which i love, so Collection 2000 are not completely in my bad books!

I will never be using this foundation again and i felt like i just had to write this post as i dont want any of you guys to waste your money on this horrid product! Also i felt i needed to have a rant and let out my dissapointment....

DO NOT USE THIS FOUNDATION! (unless you want to look like patchy the brown and white dog)

E.L.F. Products!

So I ordered some products from e.l.f and after using them I thought i'd let you know what I think of them! On their facebook page i saw that they had an offer on which i think was 10% off when you spend £15 so that's what I did! I'm only going to be showing you three of the products as the rest is for part of my friends birthday present and just in case she see's it on here haha!
 Okay so the first thing is the mineral lipstick in barely bitten, i got really excited as im allergic to an ingredient which is in loads of lipsticks and i discovered that it's not in some of the e.l.f. ones so i can use them! Usually the only ones I can use are more expensive ones so im so happy ive found the e.l.f. ones! As you can see the colour is totalllly different to how it looks, even in real life the lipstick looks the same as the picture on the website but for some reason is totally different on your lips! However I still like the colour it comes out and it makes a different to my usual pink colours! It's a really nice texture and doesn't feel at all drying on my lips so I think i'll be ordering a few more!

The second thing is a nail polish which i'm a bit unsure why it's called fluorescent pink as it is not fluorescent at all, it's actually quite a pale pink! As you can see it looks slightly paler than the websites picture and has a bit more of a coral colour to it, although i like the colour i don't think it's anything special! I think it would be quite nice for the summer but i'm not sure I will wear it that often compared to my other, more interesting nail varnishes! 

The third thing is the clarifying pressed powder which I thought was really good as it's only £1.50 and it has ingredients in such as zinc which are good for your skin! The colour is perfect for my skin and it doesn't smell funny or anything, the only downside is it's a bit smaller than your usual pressed powder, but for £1.50 you can't really complain! I really like it because as you can see in the picture it doesn't make my skin completely matte, it still has a glow to it whilst taking away the shine and keeping my make up on for longer so im definitely a fan of this product and will be buying it again!

Hope you enjoy this post, Emily xxx

HAUL: h&m, new look, primark, superdrug

This isnt a lot but just a few bits ive bought recently!
The stripy skirt is from h&m and is £12.99, it has a zip down the front and two little zip pockets. I bought a plain black boobtube from primark to wear with it but for some reason it came up a bit small so i had to get a size 6 when im usually a size 8, it has a little ruched bit at the top which adds a little detail to it and was only £2.50!
The next picture is a blouse from primark which you can also get with pink down the front but they didn't have any pink ones! The buttons are hidden except for three at the top which is quite cool and although you can't see it, the triangle ends of the collar are blue aswell.
I ran out of dry shampoo and thought i'd try the superdrug one as it's only 99p and i'd say it works exactly the same as the batiste one and it also smells really nice!
I bought some sudocrem to put on my face because my friend said it's really good at reducing redness and im definitely really happy with it! And although alot of people don't like the smell i actually love the smell of it! I work part time in a pharmacy and got it there for about £2
The two middle pictures are actually a giant ring i bought from new look, its bright pink and has tiny little gems around the edge and although you can't tell in the picture, it is huge! I think it was about £4.99 but was buy one get one free so i got the earrings in the picture next to the ring. The picture just would not focus but they're made of loads of different little shaped gems and they kind of shine different colours in the light! I think they were £3.99 but i got them free with the ring!
I bought these eyelashes as i thought they looked quite thick but still quite natural, at least compared to my normal false eyelashes! They're pre-glued but do not stick at alll so you'd have to use a different eyelash glue such as eyelure for them! They were £1.99 and i also got these from the pharmacy i work in
The next picture is some false nails i got from primark which were only £1!! Theyre bright red with white polka dots and i love them, i got them to wear to a party because my nails have all broken and are horrible atm! I got quite a few compliments on them at work so definitely a good buy for a pound!
I usually use the Rimmel 25 Hour Foundation and i buy it from the pharmacy i work in but they had ran out of my colour and i had to get a foundation as i had completely ran out! So i tested a few on my hand and got this Collection 2000 one which i would say is actually really similar to the Rimmel 25 hour one and its a bit cheaper, i think about £3.99!
The lipbalm really isn't interesting but i just thought i'd chuck it in, im allergic to an ingredient in so many lip products so this is one of very few lipbalms i can use! But as its E45 its really good moisturising so i dont mind! I got it from work and i think it was about £2 something!
The last thing is a few herbal essences products i got from superdrug as theyre all half price at the moment! I got all 3 products for about £5.50 so i was really pleased with that! I got dazzling shine shampoo and conditioner which smells SOOO good i just love washing my hair with it! I also got the smooth and soft intensive mask which also smells really nice! The whole range of these herbal essences products smell so nice but my favourite is the smell of dazzling shine! When i use these three products they do exactly what they say, ive only used them once and they made my hair so soft and shiny so i am really loving these at the moment!

I've ordered a few products from e.l.f. make up after i saw a blog post on them and decided to try them, some of their lip products don't contain the ingredient im allergic to and they're only £1.50-£3.50 yay! I'm definitely way more excited than i should be! They also had 20% off so i thought i'd make an order whilst that offer was on, they should be arriving soon so when they come i will do a blog post on them!
