End Of Month Mini Reviews - August

philip kingsley shampoo
Philip Kingsley Body Building Shampoo and Moisture Balancing Conditioner Duo £27.00 - This shampoo and conditioner duo is hands down, one of my faves this year. The shampoo is super foamy and lathers up nicely leaving my hair squeaky clean with a light scent. Following through with the conditioner, my hair feels soft, yet bouncy and definitely gives me the lift I need. My hair is also less oily since using this, I use to get greasy hair a day after washing and nowadays, I can actually go on for three days without washing.
percy and reed hair fragrance
Percy & Reed Hair Fragrance £22.00 (*) - Named as a hair fragrance to give your mane a wonderful scent after use and also doubles up as shine spray, I was particularly excited about trying this. However, it left me rather disappointed, wonderful scent, yes, it had that, but it didn't last long  at all and as for shine, I honestly didn't really see a difference. For the price, I would of expected miracles, but I was left thoroughly displeased.
barry m lipstick

Barry M Lip Paint in Black Cherry 160 £4.49 - Darker lip shades are slowly starting to appear at the front of my lipstick draw lately and this one from Barry M is a sure winner in my eyes. Easy to apply and super long lasting, I think I may have to invest in a few more shades since they're less than a fiver for one.
dermalogica primer
Dermalogica Age Smart Skin Perfect Primer SPF30 £38.40 (*) - A definite contender for my favourite primer ever, the Stay Flawless 15 Hour Primer from Benefit, I absolutely love this stuff! Not only does it prep my skin for make up, it also brightens the tone, the neutral tint balances out any unevenness and enhances my natural complexion. My make up last all day without budging, so I'm really impressed, even the price doesn't put me up repurchasing, it's honestly, that good!
maybelliene fit me powder
Maybelliene Fit Me Face Powder £5.99 - This is probably one of the worst face powders I have ever tried. Not only is the packaging a bit of pain (sponge and mirror in the bottom compartment), around fifteen minutes after applying, my skin was already super oily and my foundation started to go blotchy. Constant reapplications were needed and even after each layer, it wore off mega quickly,  *shakes head* not happy with this one at all.

Have you tried any of the above products?

The New NARS Nail Polish

NARS Nail Polish in Thasos £15.00 (*)
NARS Nail Polish in Elbrus £15.00 (*)

Introducing the new NARS Nail Polishes, a collection of forty extended wear enamels with high-gloss finishes and long lasting hold.  Squared bottled with black cap, don't be fooled when trying to twist at the top, thinking that, that's the lid, you need to pull it off to reveal the actual lid with the brush inside. The packaging is durable and the flat round-square brush applies the colour easily and smoothly. The colour was super fast drying and lasted a good four days before any chipping appeared. With a large range of wearable colours, there's undoubtedly, one to suit everybody, but at £15.00 a pop, in my opinion, it's definitely one of those 'treat yourself' products rather than a 'I fancy a new nail polish today' moments. 

Are you a NARS fan? Will you be checking out this new collection?

Desert Boot Loving

Beige Desert Boots - Topshop
Pink Desert Boots - Topshop

I never thought I'd say this, but I absolutely love my new obsession with desert boots. They're the perfect boots for the end of summer, not too heavy, yet comfortable and easy enough to wear with transitional outfits. These beauties were from the Topshop sale and costed me £25 together, great bargain considering they were £38 each before the sale. I can't wait to start pairing them up with the upcoming autumn trends, I know that pastel pink is one of them, so I'll definitely get my wear out these pink ones. The beige ones will go with absolutely everything anyways, so in all honesty, these have been the best purchase I've made this season.
