Birchbox January 2016

Finally, I have given in and purchased myself a monthly-subscription to Birchbox. I have wanted to get another beauty box since I purchased the Cohorted Black Beauty Box. Since, purchasing the subscription, I have been waiting with eager anticipation. And it finally came last week!

NYX Lip Lingerie in Lace Detail

The NYX Lip Lingeries; a product I've wanted to try ever since I first read about their release. I have finally found them stocked on my local NYX stand. When I saw them I wanted them all. However, I reigned myself in and purchase just the one; for now.  The Lip Lingeries are not super new but it's the first time I've noticed them on the NYX stand. The colour selection of the range runs very nude, which I have been recently getting very into. Lace Detail is a very light peachy, pink nude colour, unlike any other liquid lipstick I own. I feel that the colour may be just a touch too light for me, but perhaps not. Sometimes I look in the mirror and think that something looks off, but other times I think it looks quite good. 

NARS Nail Polish in the shade Dark Room

I've been feeling like I'm stuck in a nail polish stump recently. I've been going back and forth between my two favourite Barry M Nail Paints for the past month, Chilli and Almond, and generally being feeling uninspired. I was contemplating buying some new additions to my collection, when I decided to clean out what I already own. It was during this clear out that I discovered this NARS Nail Polish that I had bought but only tried a few times.

A Year of Beauty 2016

Happy New Year Everyone! I sincerely hope that it was a good one. I was very boring this year spending it at home with my family; movies, disney board games and nibbles can compare to nothing else. However, with 2016 now in the past, I thought I'd make my first post of the new year a beauty round up. The past year has been full of new beauty discoveries, some I'm still using and others I found to be a passing fad.
