Primark PS… Brightening Rinse Off Mask Black Diamond

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark’s PS… Brightening Rinse Off Mask Black Diamond. This is a clay mask that contains exfoliating particles and promises to brighten skin tone. You’re supposed to apply the mask, let it dry for 15-20 minutes, then rinse it off – done! Sounds easy! But does the mask work?

I got 3 uses out of this sachet, so I’m satisfied I reached the right conclusion which is… this mask is useless. It doesn’t feel cleansing, it doesn’t have any brightening effect at all, and the small exfoliating particles are really sharp. Ouch!

If you’re interested, Primark’s PS… Brightening Rinse Off Mask Black Diamond is available as 15ml for 80p. But I wouldn’t recommend this face mask at all.

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Manhattan, Sally Hansen & Primark

Hi there! Today’s post is another Nail Of The Day post. I did this galaxy mani a few weeks ago. Here’s how:

I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 820 Hot Black To Go (2 coats).

I used a small piece of a make-up sponge and Primark’s PS… Marshmallow polish to sponge white blobs onto my nails. Then I used 2 colour polishes, Rimmel Lycra Pro 431 Stormy Skies and Manhattan Mode Pilot 01M, to fill in the white blobs. I used a sponge for this too.

There’s no galaxy mani without glitter, so I applied 1 coat of Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova. This is my favourite glitter top coat!

I’ve done better galaxy manis in the past. However, I still think this one looked quite cool. Do you like nail art? Have you tried to do galaxy nails before? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!

Primark PS… Nourishing Leave On Mask With Pistachio

Hi there! Today’s post is about Primark‘s PS… Nourishing Leave On Mask with Pistachio. You’re supposed to apply the mask to a thoroughly cleansed face and neck, then leave it alone so that it’ll be absorbed by the skin. Sounds easy!

The sachet provides 15ml of product – which is a lot! So I’ve been using this mask as a night cream for about 10 days, and I really enjoyed it. Let me tell you more…

The mask is light green in colour, and it smells like pistachio ice cream. Very nice! The mask is also quite rich, and a little goes a long way. I’ve used the product on my face and neck, and I’m really happy with how nourishing it is. It does feel a little greasy when you apply it, so I recommend applying the mask half an hour before you go to bed.

In summary, I think Primark‘s PS… Nourishing Leave On Mask with Pistachio is very nice. I recommend it to everyone with dry skin and everyone who loves pistachio ice cream. The 15ml sachet is 80p only!

Hi there! I haven’t done a haul post since May, so let me tell you what I bought since then. 🙂

1 T-Zone Rose Gold Peel Off Mask – I don’t know how much this was, but I picked it up at B&M Bargains. So it’s fair to assume it was dirt cheap!

2 Thierry Mugler Alien Flora Futura – this was on sale, £25 only!

3 Derma V10 konjac sponges – these were 99p each, and I bought 3.

4 Primark PS… Face Masks – I bought a number of Primark face masks. I think I bought about 20. Most of them were 80p.

5 L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo & Detangling Conditioner – these are the big 400ml bottles, and they were £2.25 each.

6 Bling Pop Firming & Brightening Face Mask with Peach – pack of 10 for £5.99.

12 Astor Heidi Klum Lipstick – brownish nude colour, £1.75.

12 Daily Defense Pomegranate Shampoo & Conditioner – these are 473ml bottles, and they were £1.25 each!

And I bought 2 more duvet cover sets from Asda. The one on the left was £14, the one on the right was £7 (half price offer, but it’s back to £14 now for the king size).

I’m really pleased with what I bought. I know I picked up a lot of face masks, but everything else is quite reasonable! What have you bought recently? Have you tried any of the products I bought? Would you like to try any of these products? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails Feat. Rimmel, Sally Hansen, Max Factor, Primark & Essence

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today!

Alrighty, for this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds Hot Black To Go (2 coats, but 1 would have been enough).

Then I used a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply white blobs (Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow) to my nails.

I repeated the process with 2 random colour polishes – Essence Colour & Go 06 Instant Happiness and Max Factor Glossfinity 95 Flaming Pink.

The glitter top coat I used is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear 235 Supernova which is not just my favourite glitter top coat, but most likely also the most beautiful and the most versatile glitter top coat in the history of the planet.

I really liked this mani. It was inspited by boredom, but it turned out to be quite cool. Have you tried galaxy nails? If not, why not? Would you like to try galaxy nails? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow & Stamping With MoYou London Festive 53

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good weekend! This week is going to be Nail Week. Yes, that means I’ll post about manis only. And today’s post is about a mani I did a few weeks ago. I’ve done a very similar mani for Halloween 2017, so you could say I’m recycling my own ideas. 😀

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS Nail Polish Marshmallow (2 coats). This is a great white polish. I’m glad I stocked up because I haven’t seen this polish in quite some time.

I used an unnamed tomato red Beauty UK polish and a small piece of a make-up sponge to apply the “blood”. For the bat images I used MoYou London‘s Festive 53 plate (big bats), an unbranded stamping plate (small bats) and my home-made “stamping” polish.

I likd this mani. But I think I should have chosen a more vibrant red polish for the blood effect. Oh, and by the way, if you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link.

Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow, China Glaze Red Satin, Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green & Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 520 Rosey Shooter

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (pinkies), China Glaze Red Satin (ring and middle fingers), and Astor Lacque Deluxe 880 Forest Green (index fingers and thumbs).

The glitter topper I used on my pinkies is Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear 520 Rosey Shooter.

I really like this mani! But I’ve realised that I need a better red glitter topper!

Why did I do this mani? Well, I’m a total tennis nut. And Belarus has been my favourite Fed Cup team for quite some time now.

Why is that? Well, over the past 2 years the Belarusian fed cup players have shown that they’re true champions. The players have given their all, and they’ve played well above their respective rankings to despatch higher ranked players on a number of occasions. How could anyone not root for them?! Well, I certainly hope they win their tie this weekend!
