NYX products have been popular in the blogosphere for a while, however they aren't the easiest of brands to get hold of here in the UK. I prefer to see a product in real life rather than purchase it online as I like to see the shades available up close before deciding which one to get. I recently started working at Next & couldn't believe it when I spotted the NYX stand over in the Womenswear accessories department!! I knew the blushers were raved about a lot & as I had been looking for a new blusher for what seemed like forever I asked my Twitter followers for shade recommendations. Literally everyone said 'Peach' so I made a mental note to have a look at it next time I was in work to see if it really was a pretty as everyone was claiming it to be. 

When I found Peach on the stand I instantly knew it was my kinda shade, being pale I really like pretty pink shades & Peach was a perfect mix of pink with a peach tone. The blush is highly pigmented so a little really does go a long way. I lightly swirl my RT Blush Brush in the pan & gently apply it to the apples of my cheeks. For £6 I think these blushers are a complete bargain, they blend beautifully & create a lovely glow of colour on my cheeks. I find some blushers just sit awkwardly on my skin but with this NYX one I don't have that problem at all, it glides on & is very easy to blend in to ensure I don't end up with clown cheeks! The shade range is also incredible with 25 to pick from you're spoilt for choice & I want to add at least 5 more of them to my collection, they're all so pretty! I'm absolutely obsessed with 'Peach' blush now & I haven't opted for any other blusher since I welcomed this little beauty into my life!

A little heads up if you want to get your hands on some NYX Cosmetics then check this link to see which Next stores stock it! There's quite a few so you might just find a store nearby :)

Have you tried any NYX products before?

spring/summer nail polish

Recently I decided to have a look through my nail polish stash & pick out some shades for Spring & Summer. Now the weather is warming up I feel like I need to wear some Summery shades to match the pretty flowers & blue skies I am seeing more & more of! I have quite a ridiculous collection of nail polishes now so I try to rotate which ones I use & bring a few new ones to the surface, but of course a few firm favourites always sneak their way in! My most favourite of the bunch is & probably always will be Essie - Mint Candy Apple. I've almost finished this bottle now which is something that never happens with me & polish but I go for weeks wearing this same shade because I just can't get enough! I thought I would have grown bored of it by now, but nope I'm still very much obsessed with it. I also have a similar obsession with Barry M - Blueberry so naturally I picked that out as one of my top Spring nail polish shades! I've not worn this Ciate - Big Yellow Taxi polish but when I saw it I knew I had to give it a go, yellow instantly makes me think of sunshine & the beach so when I need to brighten up my day I'll be popping this shade on my nails. I featured Model's Own - Blueberry Muffin & Pink Veneer in this post but I had to include them again in this one because I do prefer pastel over brights & these are super pretty. I think Pink Veneer & Barry M - Peach Melba will go nicely together, I might create a post featuring different nail art combinations with those two actually! Another pastel I've included is Sally Hansen - Purple Heart which is a candy pink toned purple, it makes me think of party ring biscuits for some reason!

What are your favourite Spring/Summer nail polish shades?
