♥ Nivea all natural?

So I bought this quite long ago but haven't mentioned it in the blog. Of course, I was drawn to the "pure & natural", from looking at the ingredients you can see that it's not exactly organic.

It claims to contain bio argan oil etc, and it does, just really far down the ingredient list. Not a lot of it in other words. However I do think it does the job, it is a moisturising day cream. It's light and I actually love what the formula's like, amazing smell too!

Got this hand cream the other day since I finished my Lavera one. I have to say the same about this, does the job, it's moistursing but nothing else. It also has all the oils and that kind of the ingrients at the bottom, for £1.7 for this big tube It's okey.

The ingredients 

Have you tried any of these?
What are your favourite hand creams and face creams?

♥ 5 MUA for £5

So I had my 3,5 hour break at college today again.. so I couldn't really Not head to Superdrug to pick up these goodies :)

And as you porbably know they were £1 each.

I was so impressed by this nail polish. One layer was honestly enough although I used two. It wasn't quite as covering as the N7 polishes, but nearly. The polish on it's own was quite glossy, and I think the top coat (I bought that too) did a great job.

I really wanted to try their nail polishes since I hadn't but I didn't want to buy another polish of a colour I already had, just because they're cheap. So I went for this colour..

what do you think of the colour?

I'd been wanting to buy this lipstick for quite a while. It was in a collage I made recently (click)

The shade is nude/pink rather than orangy

I really like this! It's not for you if you want a matte super pigmented lipstick, but it's covering enough and it's super creamy!

I hate to show off light shades of lipstick because they tend to look really streaky/chapped lips.

I reckon it's because light colours don't really cover as much as dark, if you know what I mean?

ATT: Are these pics in line with each other, or is one above the other one? please answer in a comment. (they showed up weird when I wrote this post)?!

MUA Black Intense Colour Eyeliner Pencil: Needed a new eyeliner and I was soo impressed with the ingredients (yeah im obsessed with reading ingredients).

Here are a few of the first impressive ingredients (remember, this was £1):
Carnauba Wax, Bees Wax, Ceresin Cocoa Butter, Isopropyl Myristate,  DiethylhexylCyclohexane, Castor Oil

MUA Clear Mascara: I always use a clear mascara to set my eyebrows, or for my lashes aswelll sometimes. And this one is great at £1.

Have you tried any of these.. which MUA products do you recommend?

♥ Clarin Instant Definition

Just though I'd share a mascara I like. I'm not easily impressed and as you might know if you've read my blog for a while, my favourite one is a £2 one from Boots. My favourite before that was Loreal Telescopic, other than that I haven't really liked any other mascara.

This is the Clarins Instant Definition mascara, I got this sample from a voucher in Glamour magazine a while ago. As you can see the result's nice and I have to say,

-what makes this better than my usual £2 mascara is that it really lasts all day. When I went to wash off my make up a while ago it still looked the same as in these pics.

Have you tried this?
