Todays nail colour is Barry m Indigo.
I was very excited when i saw this on there website and ordered it straight away.
I am loving this colour, it is showing up a bit more blue on camera.
I think its a great colour for fall -colour but a bit darker than the brights of summer.
I first applyed a base, then a coat of the Indigo.

I found this is one of the better colours to apply,
(a few of the paint dont cover as well as some others.I have seen a few people found this, have you had this problem?

I really like this colour, i think it is going to be one of my favourite through october.


Indigo number 312

Maybelline The Falsies Mascara Review

From the Maybelline website:
The Falsies Mascara delivers a false lash look; giving you a full set of voluminous, bold, fanned out lashes and the appearance of no gaps from any angle.
The Pro-Keratin and Fibre enriched formula is designed to deliver immediate results, distributing volume and visible intensity to your lashes. The patented ‘Spoon’ shaped brush helps fan lashes out.
The Falsies mascara is designed to give the appearance of no gaps and spaces. In a wink lashes you didn’t even know you had look visibly thickened!


The wand on the falsies is curved, which helps to get the little fine hairs.
 I really like this shape wand.
The thing i always look for when buying a new mascara is a big wand.This one is wide, which works for me. Its not rounded its sort of had double the width as its height .

I do like the way this looks on my lashes, it givesgood length. I do feel the picture show how big my lashes really look with this on here.This was a mascara that took a bit of getting used to, i didn't think it was one i was going to be using daily as i found it felt clumpy and sticky when i was trying to get it off at the end of the day. I know its waterproof and will take a bit extra to get off the lashes but i only ever wear waterproof and found the one of the harder ones to remove.This did put me off a bit but the way it makes my lashes look makes up for it :).I would recommend this product.

Barry m limited additon pink

I came across this new Limited addtion pink while ordering there new effects nail paint.

It looked bright and i had to have it.

I have to say when i opened the package i was disappointed with the colour i was expecting bright but it wasn't as bright as it look on the website.

Although after having a play about with it i am much happier.

I will definitely be wear this as much as i can before we get to far into winter, any sunny days, this will be on.

It is one of the easier paint to apply.
To be honest all of the resent ones i have bought have been really easy to apply.

 A few days ago i saw a post on Chloe's blog about Barry m new effects polish and i wanted to try it out, so i went over to the site and ordered myself some :).
I want really looking forward to see if it worked and how it looks with different colours.

So here's what the nail paint looks like:


On the bottle there is a little leaflet that tells you how to use the effects paint:

Here's how it worked for me :).
I used a few different nail paints so you can see what it looks like on different colours.

I added some glitter to make it even more funky.

I think the effects it good when your going for a rocky looks.It does give a great effect to the nails. 
It is easy to apply and only takes a few seconds to start working.

Here are the colours i used under the effects.

Do you want to feature on my blog? WEEK 2! JULIE :)

                                          About Julie ( Musing of a make up manic)

I'm nineteen and am studying English and Drama in college..I'm obsessed with everything beauty related. During my first year of college I did a part time beauty course, so can now work as a beautician. I would love to do make up artistry one day and can see myself as a journalist! Hopefully.. :)


Q.1. Whats your top 5 must have beauty items?
A .Foundation
    Neutral Eyeshadows
    Contour Powder

Q.2.What things do you use everyday with out fail?
A.La Roche Posay F50+ Suncream
   YSL Teint Resist Foundation
   MAC Harmony Contour Powder
   Eyeko Tube Mascara

Q.3.Whats your favourite makeup brand?
A.Ooh, thats such a tough question. I use so many different brands. I love MAC for their colour(eyeshadow,blush,eyeliners) but think their foundations are awful! Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier and YSL   are also high on my list..I really can't choose!

Q.4.I love fake tan, whats your favourite brand (if you wear it) and why?
A.I'd love to be able to wear fake tan, but for some really weird reason it just doesn't take to my skin. After I apply it, it will disappear within a day, it just fades away and it doesn't get dark enough. I could be wearing two or three layers and still be really pale. Weird! When I do use it though, for a night out or something, I use St. Moritz or Loreal Sublime Bronze.

Q.5.What has been your favourite nail colour/brand for this season?
A.I'm obsessed with the Chanel Particuliere colour. I have about seven shades of it from different companies. I absolutely love it. I love neutrals on my nails, browns, greys, nudes..I really like Barry M because its so cheap that you can get rid of it after a few uses and not feel guilty!

Q.6.How would you describe your fashion style?
A.I would say smart/casual. I would never walk around college in a tracksuit, but wouldn't be over the top either. I like to be pretty and wear dresses which some people may think is a bit much, but I like it. Again I love neutrals and long cardigans with leggings and boots.

Q.7.Which celebritys style do you love?
A.Hmmm..I love Rachel Bilson's style, she always looks so good.

Q.8.What has been your favourite beauty or fashion trend this season?
A.Favourite beauty trend has to be bright lips, I love strong colours on my lips now. And fashion has to be big chunky knits..I think they always look so good, no matter what season it is because their so classic. They can be casual or smart and are really flattering.

Q.9. What are 3 random facts about you?
A.I love ham and green peppers on my pizza and refuse to eat chicken. Ever.
    I have an older sister and younger brother.

    I get embarrassed really easily and go red, even for other people. :)

       Here is what you can expect to see on the lovely musings of a makeup manic page :)

And so it begins...

Sorry its been so long since my last post, I've been so busy with work and college that I've had no time to do anything else. Yesterday was my first day back in University to start my second year of my English and Drama Studies degree.

In a way I was dreading going back and another couldn't wait. I thought I'd do a quick face and outfit of the day to show you what I wore :)

                                                        My new hair and fringe features!

                                                            Face: YSL Teint Resist
                                                             MAC Melba Blush 
                                                    MAC Harmony Contour Blush

                                           Eyes: MAC All That Glitters, Twinks, Satin Taupe
                                                             MAC Coffee Eyeliner
                                                                Eyeko Mascara

I wore a baggy cream and grey top from Mango with jeggings, cream knee high socks rolled down and my boots.

Amazing brush!

Hey, just wanted to let you all know about an amazing new brush i have that i think you all need to try :).
I got mine a few days ago and i love it! Think has to be the best brush i have ever used! I have for the last few years been using a big paddle brush.I always thought well a brush is a brush so never really bothered trying new ones. I was really looking forward to trying the denman brush as i have heard good things about them and when i was younger my nana had one of the soft bristle ones and i loved that.
So as soon as it came i had to try it out and it made my hair feel really soft and seem to be less bushy, because of the long bristles it whet right though my hair.I fell in love straight away and can honestly not see myself using any other brush again.

They have new Tuttie Frutti ones that smell great! They have a 'anti-static rubber pad to give maximum grip and control'. These come in four flavours strawberry short cake, green apple, lemon sherbet and wild dewberry. These are £7.16.

I am in love with the diamante handbag brush, this is coming everywhere with me! I love that even thought its handbag size the bristles are still the same lengh as the regular. £12.21.

These are definitely worth checking out if you are on the look out for a new brush.
