Essence colour boost nail varnish review&swatches

Essence is one of my favourite high street makeup and nail varnish brands. I use Essence products quite often as they are really good quality and really affordable. Essence kindly sent me these Colour Boost nail varnishes. I am a huge fan of nail varnishes as I paint my own nails. The main things that I want from a nail varnish: fast drying, long wearing and opaque. In the swatches below, I have only applied one coat and no top coat.

Price
£1.80

Claims
Intense colour
Shiny formula
High coverage within one application
Smooth finish

10 Instant Adventure
This nail varnish is black with a hint of purple. This is an ideal shade to wear for those who prefer dark nails, those who like bold colours and will go with most outfits.
 

 04 Instant Love
This is your classic true red shade. Ideal to wear all year round and a classic nail colour.

06 Instant Happiness
This shade is ideal for this time of year as pastel nails are really on trend. I love all of the shades but if I had to pick my favourite this would be it. It's such a pretty mint green shade.



Overall
When it comes to Essence nail varnishes I am a huge fan already and own quite a few. So I was excited to try the new collection, which I am impressed by. All of the shades applied smoothly and not patchy. I only had to use one coat for an opaque look and they lasted on the nails for 5 days before chipping. Which in my opinion is good, my nails dried fully within 15 minutes.

Everything 5 pounds lookbook

Everything 5 pounds is an online retailer that sell clothes, shoes, jackets etc all for £5. There are so many choices on the website to pick from. I was given the opportunity to pick 9 items from the website to feature on my blog. With that I've decided to create a lookbook of all of the clothes. I am really happy with them all and ideal to dress either up or down. I decided to pick 7 dresses as they are mainly what I wear and are really versatile. Shoe wise I went with a classic black pair of heels and a black wedge.
For Reference I am 5ft 4 so the length of the dresses will differ on you depending on your height. All the dresses that I ordered are a size 8. All of the dresses are true to size and accurate. Same with the shoes they are true to size.
All the clothes in this post should still be available to buy online. The clothes on Everything 5 pounds tend to go out of stock quickly.

Max Factor: Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle foundation review

I was kindly sent these products to review
Max Factor is such an iconic brand that has been around for years. I can remember Nana using it and even my Mam. When I got the chance to try out some Max Factor makeup I was really happy (infact I screamed inside) When I opened the package I was really happy with what was inside. The Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle Touch Foundation. Both products claim to smooth the skin textures. Also, these products are advertised on TV and the models skin looks flawless. Anything that claims to make your skin look flawless and smooth I will try. As you all know I love a flawless, smooth and full coverage base.
Smooth Miracle Primer I 'secretly' hoped that this would have been one of the products in the package, as I really wanted to try it out. So when I saw this product I was thrilled. The bottom picture above is the primer using a small pump and on the right (which you can't see) it is blended out. I applied the primer all over my face and I…
