Those Artis dupes | Primark PS...Pro Oval Brushes

After a long search I finally got my hands on these PS..Pro finishing brushes which are currently floating around the blogoshere due to their likeness to the famous Artis toothbrush style brushes. Despite this likeness, these Primark ones have rock bottom prices, with the largest brush being £4.00, the medium brush being £3.00 and the smallest being priced at £2.50.
While the feedback on these brushes has been amazing, a few people have said that they found it hard to get to grips with the application process of this style of brush, as its so different to traditional ones. However, I cant say this was something I experienced and I found the application process really easy! I've used these with a bunch of different products and have to say, they work like a dream! I use the biggest brush to blend my foundation , the medium sized brush for my contour and blush, and the smallest for my under eye concealer. I just love how effortless it all is and how airbrushed the finish looks. Its hard to believe the lot cost me under a tenner, as they are up there with my all time favourite brushes (I've honestly been recommending them to everyone in my personal life this month!).
Whats more is that these wash up so so well! I would say that I found washing harder to get used to than the application process. However, this is well worth the struggle for my love of these brushes. Get searching your local Primark because these are an amazing find! I for one am tempted to go buy another Set!

NYX comes to the UK | Haul

I was so excited when I heard NYX was coming to the UK, and even more excited when I heard Boots would be stocking them (hello advantage card points!). 

The lip section of my local NYX stand is always manic, meaning sadly for me loads of bits that I wanted to try out of stock. Although, I did manage to walk away with four lip beauties! I picked up this Butter Gloss in 'Angel Food Cake' (£5.00), this NYX soft matte lip cream in 'Istanbul' (£5.50), this NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in 'tea & cookies' (£6.50) along with this NYX slide on Lip Pencil in the shade 'Bedrose' (£5.50). As you can tell I love a nude lip and cant wait to share my thoughts!

I've heard amazing things about NYX's line of completion goodies, So I also picked up some face bits including, this NYX Color Correction Liquid primer in green (£9.00), Wonderstick in 'light/medium' (£10.00), Gotcha Covered concealer in 'ivory' (£5.50), and this lovely Rouge Cream blush in 'tea rose' (£6.50). I'm most excited to try the contour stick as its unlike anything else I own!

Please let me know if you have any more suggestions, as I cant wait to try more from the range!

Soap & Glory | Sugar Crush Body Scrub

It's no secret that I adore Soap & Glory, Infact its one of those few brands that I will go back to again and again. One of the things I feel they do rather well at are scrubs. I feel scrubs are hard to get right. While I don't wish for something to be rough on my skin, I want something that I can actually feel working!
Containing what I consider to be the perfect formula,  Sugar crush just delivers and leaves my skin so so smooth after use! Although, I think the thing that draws most people to this product is its super strong scent. If You're a fan of limes, you'll love this sweet scent. If that's not your cup of tea, Soap & Glory have a whole range of scrubs ready to be discovered on the Boots website here. Is it bad that I've tried them all?!

You can pick this up in selected Boots stores for  £8/300ml here. What's your favourote scrub?
