There’s a brand spanking new makeup company on the block – Freedom Makeup. Owned by the much loved and highly affordable Makeup Revolution, Freedom Makeup are the professional sister company. When they launch last week they had not one, but two promotions running and I thought it would be rude not to take a look at the site at least. Upon seeing that the prices were equally as good as Revolution, I couldn’t resist a little haul!

First of all I’d like to say sorry for being a bit absent this week, I keep getting headaches! As I work on computers all day, I’ve been trying to avoid screens in the evening to try and break the cluster. Anyway, on to the exciting stuff.

I have to confess, this being my first proper full time pay cheque in well over a year, I did get a tad carried away. (The triple points offer at Boots didn’t help!) But at the same time, I stocked up on some essentials and definitely deserved a few treats. After all, I have been working hard!

It came! It came! If you’ve read my blog recently, you probably saw a slightly mixed experience review where I said how lovely the Pink Parcel customer service team have been, but that I hadn’t actually received my parcel. After seeing my post, the PP team tweeted me to let me know that due to high demand after their fantastic free parcel offer, that they were dispatching all free boxes in April. It was to my complete surprise then, that I came home that same day to find March’s box waiting for me. And what a box!

Having finished working in retail a few weeks ago, I am so pleased with how quickly my nails have grown. So I decided to test out my new nail varnish from my recent French Beauty Haul. Keep reading
This is a more unusual nail varnish choice for me, but there was something about Ciate’s Honey Bee that made me want to try it. I got my bottle in T K Maxx on sale for £3.99 a few weeks back and wasted no time in putting it on my nails. Honey Bee is a pink toned pale brown nude with golden shimmer.

I bought this Lakur by Londontown nail varnish a few months ago, wore it once and then forgot about it. The reason for that was because I was on the hunt for the perfect green. Not that this isn’t a lovely shade, but green is my favourite colour and I can get quite picky about finding the right one. But when I saw this in my box of polishes the other day, I was really drawn to it and decided to give it another chance.

At first look, this may seem like a very boring manicure and I guess in some ways it is, but I am a big fan of dark nails and regularly wear black varnish. Recently, I purchased this bottle of Essie in the shade Liquorice on a whim, as my other black is quite old and is getting a bit gloopy.
I guess I should really call this post ‘Beauty Haul Plus Gifts From Mum’ because it also includes some items my mum picked up for me whilst she was in France last week. Lucky me! I’ve picked these bits and bobs up over the past few weeks, some of which were at a great price.

I’ve mentioned a few times on here before that I am terrible for chipping, smudging or otherwise ruining my nails within 24 hours of painting them. In fact, I’ve gone so far as to say I find it impossible to make a manicure last that long. Those days are now behind me! Thanks to these great tips from Anomalous Me Beauty, whose blog is really worth following if you’re not already!
I picked out my high end products to give this a go, as I know from many many reviews that they’re meant to be a lot better lasting than I’ve ever managed.
