Bomb Hair Brush ...

Hi guys,

I don't know if you have seen these mace shaped hairbrushes recently but I just purchased one and tried it and it was amazing. 

It is great for blow drying and the volume you get out of it is amazing. I'm not going to lie - I did get it stuck a few times but I think that is just because I struggle with drying my hair anyway!!

I don't know who came up with the concept of this but it is honestly the funniest thing. I also love that it has a pink handle.

I know Avon sell these also and I was toying with it - but I do have a link that you can purchase from me via my facebook selling page here.

I can't wait to try this for curling my hair!!

Loreal Studio Pro Hairspray

Hi guys,

I have just finished using this product and I have been deciding whether to repurchase or not. This is the Loreal Studio Pro Lock It Hairspray in extra strong. Firstly, as previously mentioned, I am a stickler for black and dark clothing so I like to brighten up my life in other ways and this packaging is gorgeous. I picked this up on impulse. I have heard a lot of things about the studio pro range. 
I bought this from Boots as they had a special offer on at the time. Okay, so the product itself smells amazing. It is so fruity and amazing, you probably shouldn't wear perfume with it. You can still smell hours later, unlike some perfumes. The actual consistency of the product is very sticky. I don't know whether this is because its extra strong or if its a trait of the actual product. It does hold the style really well also, I just don't like that you can visually see the hairspray in the hair. It gives you a thin layer - again due to the sticky. 

I weighed all of these points up and I have decided not to repurchase - I have used other products previously which have been better for me - I may try again in the future but with a lighter hold.

Champneys nail polish ... Secret Taupe Sparkle

Hi guys,

I have just tried this nail polish and adore it!! I got it in a christmas set from Champneys and the colour is gorgeous. The best thing about it is that it also has a hint of sparkle so it adds a touch of glamour.

I had to apply two coats of this, although it did go on easily and wasn't sticky. The finish is almost gel like with the sparkle adding definition.

My only issue is that I have chipped it several times so far. It isn't as longwearing as I would like!!

I love this nail polish and as I'm not allowed to wear it for work will be good as an occasional use polish.

Avon Glimmersticks Brow Definer

Hi guys,

I have been using this religiously for two weeks now! I use it in line with the stencil from Avon as well. It is a retractable pencil which is fab for me as I always lose lids. I use the dark brown colour and it matches my hair really well. If you have lighter hair, it may not work for you as it is dark. You may need to try the blonde version.

Glimmersticks Eye Brow Definer available here.

It stays on for a very long time - I have very oily skin but I find I don't need to touch it in at all. I love this so much I have just ordered another two. Also, if you are looking for some inspiration, Avon have fabulous little how to videos on certain product pages! 

I will upload my brow routine at some point - what do you use on yours?
