George Gel Pro Gellies

20150128-154907-56947748.jpg

So today I was in Asda gathering ingredients for a mighty macaroni cheese and happened to walk down the beauty aisle!
On the George cosmetics stand stood this little gem of a nail polish!
It’s part of their Gel Pro range and it’s a Gellie polish! Now we’ve all seen the Gelly style polishes out there but this one truly reminds me of a jelly sweet!
It’s really deep in purple colour but it’s see through, like Ribena!
It amazingly smells like fruity sweets too!

This polish applies smoothly, with a decent sized brush to boot!
It also dries rapidly, has a very hi shine finish and best of all at the moment they are only £2! There are yellow, red and green also in the range!
Check them out in your local store!
I want them all! 🙂

Makeup Revolution The One Fluid Blusher & Ultra All Day Prime and Anti-Shine Balm!

20150127-144714-53234109.jpg

Well I’m a sucker for new products and since I’ve been a very good girl and not purchased any in a while I decided to get these two products from my thrifty and favourite brand.

So first up is the fluid blusher in Pink Dew! These little bottles of joy are an absolute dupe for Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush! I cannot afford one of those, so cannot compare but this is great!
It’s really super runny, so careful there, and is best applied with a brush!
It leaves a super silky feeling surface and sets nicely with no caking! 🙂

Now for the prime and anti-shine balm!
I had to have that as soon as I saw it because I get a shiny face and if I apply too much power then my face resembles the desiccated surface of Mars! Not sexy!
It works nicely as a thin layer of primer under makeup but also lives up to its anti-shine claims when used on top of makeup instead of powder!
Although I have found if you wipe with the sponge, makeup will come off as you can see in the pic! Durr!
But patted on it’s super!
Nicely packaged and sturdy with a mirror!

Hurry Along Summer…

It’s pretty cold here in Wales and I’m hankering for a little sunshine!

Fudge, fudge, glorious fudge!

20150111-181108-65468228.jpg

So now I’m a full time student I have no pennies! So this Christmas to compliment presents I also made some fudge!
I roped in the Mr and we got cracking! I made a cherry almond fudge and he made a Daim bar fudge!

We followed a Sweets Made Simple recipe from the above book and just swapped in a couple of ingredients!
As always with this books recipes it came out perfect and people loved their fudge treats!
