[174] Recent beauty buys..

I've been buying things here and there since getting to the States. To be honest there isn't much that I actually need or had to buy. I thought I would share my recent cosmetic/beauty buys.

OPI nail polish in Mod about you 

This is one of a kind! It was by far my favourite nail polish and then when it dried up I didn't rush to repurchase. Instead I tried to look for similar colours by different brands. The reality is nothing really compares to 'Mod about You' if you don't have this in your collection you NEED it! It's such a perfect milky pink colour. 

Sephora Creamy lip stain in 01 Always Red

I honestly can't explain how amazing this lip colour is. I will upload pictures soon but it is such a perfect red that just doesn't budge. When I came back from Miami in the summer i purchased this in the fuscia colour. Last week when I was in Sephora in NYC I spotted one of the girls wearing this and I literally followed her around the store to dins out what she was wearing. When she told me it was this I just knew I had to have it. It's sp inexpensive at $12. It's a lipgloss applicator and the consistency is quite creamy but the colour pay off is fantastic. 

Victoria Secret Body Mist in Coconut Passion

I can't keep up with VS body range it changes so much and there's always new smells that all smell equally as good. I picked this up in Miami it's just that sweet scent that I love, coconut and vanilla such a yummy combination. 

EOS Lipbalm in Strawberry Sorbet

I just picked this up at Walgreens when I realised I didn't have a lip balm my lips have been so dry lately think it's from all the planes I've been over the last few weeks. These lip balms used to be available in the UK at Space NK but I don't think you can get them anymore. I do feel a little weird popping out this egg and applying it to my lips. The smell is gorgeous and it feels so moisturising with shea butter and vitamin E it really keeps my lips hydrated. 

American Apparel Nails polishes

I always have to take advantage of the 3 for $15 because it's such great value and I really like AA's nail polishes. I bought these three colours and then took they grey back and switched it for the metallic gold. I will no doubt show you these colours closer up when I get to use them. These nail polishes just work for me the colours are fab, the consistency is just right and the brush is the perfect applicator. 

Stila waterproof eyeliner pen 

I will do a close up review when I get to use this more I used it for the first time yesterday and I was super impressed with it. I don't usually like pen eyeliners I find they dry out too quick and they are never black enough and I have to have my eyeliner INTENSE. When I was in Sephora one of the girls tired this on me and it looked amazing. I was instantly sold and the fact that it was waterproof also had me.

After I purchased these bits I got my Sam Edelman shoes and so I felt it was necessary to go back to AA for the gold metallic nail polish in 'Gold Flash'. I am not a huge metallic fan but there was something about this gold that had me sold. It's a muted gold and is just so eye-catching. I'm quite tanned from my mini break in Miami and the gold works well with the tan.

I took these pictures with flash on so you can see the shimmer better.

I have also picked up a few nail polishes from Sephora and OPI as well as the Kardashian and OPI collaboration. I will not allow myself to purchase anymore nail polish! Is there anything else I should check out while I'm here. What are your current favourites? 

Hope you are all having a good weekend.. I am back in NEW YORK and I've spent the last few days hanging out with my girl Yinka. Today is a lazy Sunday I am lounging around in my PJs, doing laundry and about to go for brunch with FURRY ! 

Hope you are all well.. 
Lots of Love..
