Manhattan Perfect Eyes Eyeshadow Falling For Purple, Manhattan Perfect Eyes Eyeshadow Brown Effects

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 eyeshadow compacts which I believe I found at Poundland – Manhattan Perfect Eyes Eyeshadow Falling For Purple and Manhattan Perfect Eyes Eyeshadow Brown Effects.

Let’s start with Manhattan Perfect Eyes Eyeshadow Falling For Purple!

Falling For Purple is a small compact which contains 3 shades – white, lilac and purple.

The first 2 eyeshadows are chalky and poorly pigmented. The third one is just about alright.

I’m not impressed with this eyeshadow compact.

Let’s take a look at Manhattan Perfect Eyes Eyeshadow Brown Effects now!

Another small compact with 3 shades – a very light beige, a pale orange and a sandy type of shade.

These eyeshadows follow the same pattern – the first 2 are just bad. There’s hardly any pigment in them and they’re dry AF. The third shade is OK though.

Guess what? This little compact didn’t impress me either. I really hate to throw out stuff but I have no use for these eyeshadows.

In the unlikely event that you’re interested, Manhattan Perfect Eyes Eyeshadow Falling For Purple and Manhattan Perfect Eyes Eyeshadow Brown Effects are available for £1 each.

I Heart MakeUp Lip Geek Dream About Success, Manhattan Colour Loop Lipgloss 45B Red Passion

Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 lip products – I Heart MakeUp Lip Geek Dream About Success and Manhattan Colour Loop Lipgloss 45B Red Passion.

Let’s s start with I Heart MakeUp Lip Geek Dream About Success which I received as a free gift with purchase! As you can see in the pic above, this is a peachy shade. I find it extremely unflattering. It makes me look terminally ill. The formula is also not the best – it’s not very soft and applying the lipstick is more like dragging it on. Not good. I’ll bin this lipstick. I won’t be able to use it.

Onto this Manhattan Colour Loop Lipgloss 45B Red Passion! This lipgloss is amazing! I love it. It has a subtle berry flavour, it’s not sticky, it’s very hydrating, and it has a flattering red tint. I’m enjoying this lipgloss very much! I found this lipgloss at Poundland – it was either £1, or part of a 2 for £1 value pack. Either way, a total steal! 😍

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 327 Heart On Fire, Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria, Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion & Stamping With MoYou London Zodiac Collection 02

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did last week.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 503 Mind The Gap Victoria (2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers). I love this polish! It’s perfect! For the images I used my MoYou London Zodiac Collection 02 stamping plate. The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

I painted my pinkies and ring fingers with Rimmel Lycra Pro 327 Heart On Fire (2 coats). I’m not the biggest fan of red nails, but I think this is a beautiful red. I used my Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion top coat to make the red nails a little sparkly.

I liked this mani a lot. The stamping plate gave me better options that I initially expected. I’ll give the other stamping plates from this collection a second chance too!

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Buffalo 12 & Stamping With MoYou Nails 447

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Buffalo 12 (2 coats). I like this polish a lot, but I’m about 2/3 through the bottle, and the polish is getting quite thick now. I hope to be able to get one more quality mani out of this bottle! 🤞

For the images I used my MoYou Nails 447 stamping plate. MoYou Nails is different from MoYou London.

Anyhoo, the 2 amazing polishes I stamped with are Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black).

Empties – May 2020

Hi there! I hope you had a great start into the week and into June. 😘 Today’s post is about all the products I managed to finish in May. I’ve done really well, and here’s everything I said goodbye to.

1 Yves Rocher Monoï Eau Des Vahinés Eau De Toilette – this is an amazing fragrance! I have a few more bottles in my stash!

2 Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist – another lovely fragance from Yves Rocher. Yes, I have a few more of these too!

3 Vaseline Intensive Care Essential Healing Non-Greasy Lotion – one of my of favourite body moisturisers. I will buy it again, no doubt!

4 Manhattan Tasty Lips Lipgloss American Grapefruit – a truly amazing lipgloss. If this one hadn’t been discontinued, I’d pick it up again.

5 Superdrug Deep Action Extreme Skin Brightening Solution – this is the best pore-unclogging and brightening product I’ve never used. I have a few more of these in my stash!

6 Boots The Garden Collection Rose Body Lotion (travel size) – this is a lovely non-greasy body lotion which I’d be happy to buy again.

7 Smack Beauty Sleeping Beauty Firming Night Cream – this is an OK night cream. I wouldn’t buy it again as there’s much better stuff out there.

8 Nivea Clay Fresh Deep Cleansing Shower Ginger & Basil Scent – a nice shower gel. I think I’ll buy it again!

9 Herbal Essences Bio Renew Bourbon & Manuka Honey Deep Repair Conditioner – one of the best conditioners I’ve ever used. I’ve already repurchased it (+ the matching shampoo).

10 Radox Scent Touch Feel Positive – this is a nice shower gel that I might buy again.

11 Rightguard Shower + Oils Purple Orchid – I love this shower gel! I’ll buy it again next time I see it.

12 Radox Eastern Spirit – this is a really nice bath gel. Unfortunately, this fragrance has been discontinued.

13 Classics Nail Polish Remover – my go-to nail polish remover. I have a few more bottles in my stash.

14 Burberry Brit Red – I loved this fragrance! Too bad it was a limited edition…

15 Primark PS… Pink Grapefruit Overnight Jelly Mask – this is a decent jelly moisturiser, but I won’t buy it again as there’s better stuff waiting to be used!

I also used a few single-use face masks. If you’d like to know which masks I tried recently, click here. I’m very happy with what I finished this month. I hope June will be amazing for empties too!

Thanks for stopping by! 🥰

Nail Of The Day – Galaxy Nails

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week. This means that Nail Week has come to an end. I’ll be back with a regular product review tomorrow.

But let me tell you about this mani! I painted my nails with Barry M Matte Nail Paint Espresso (2 coats). This is a terrible polish. Tip wear and chips within hours. I had to keep filling in the tips…

I applied blobs of white nail polish with a sponge to make the lighter colours pop.

The blue and pink colours I used are from the double-ended Revlon Nail Art Expressionist 300 Pop Art. The glitter top coat I used is Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion.

This isn’t my best galaxy mani, but it’s not the worst either. I did like the mani. But next time I’ll try it without the blue.

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion

Hi there! Today’s post is a Nail Of The Day post.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This kind of purple is my favourite nail colour. 😍

The glitter polish I used is Manhattan Super Nails 02 Glitter Champion. This is a mix of gold, fuchsia and blue micro glitter in a clear base. I love this kind of glitter!

I like the look of this mani. However, my nails look awful. I cleaned 2 places like a maniac when we moved house, and this took quite a toll on my nails. Rubber gloves couldn’t prevent splits and breakages, although I guess they prevented the worst!

Claire’s Candy Cane Lip Balm, Claire’s Christmas Pudding Lip Balm, Manhattan Colour Loop Lipgloss 52S Soft Nude

Hi there! Today’s post is about a number of products. Since the reviews are rather short, I thought I’d do one post for all of them. And here they are…

Product number 1 is Claire’s Candy Cane Lip Balm which I picked up when it was on sale. I believe it was £1. I’ve given this lip balm a try, and I don’t like it at all. It has a slight red tint. Whilst this isn’t a deal-breaker, the boring red tea flavour is! I can’t bring myself to use it. I’ve binned it.

Claire’s Christmas Pudding Lip Balm is alright. It has a light brown tint, and it actually tastes like Christmas pudding. It’s not my favourite lip balm, but it’s definitely a decent one! I believe I paid £1 for it.

And here’s my favourite of the bunch – Manhattan Colour Loop Lipgloss 52S Soft Nude. I’ve already gone through one of these amazing lipglosses (yes, the same shade), and I just had to repurchase it! I also bought 2 other colours, but this one’s perfect for me. I love the sheer tint, and the flavour is sweet and lovely. I paid £1 for this lipgloss (Poundland).

Have you tried these products? Would you like to try them? Feel free to comment, and thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect 46D & Sally Hansen Color Frenzy 320 Splattered

Hi there! Here’s another Nail Of The Day post.

For this simple mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect 46D (2 coats). I love this beautiful raspberry shade, but the polish could have dried faster. A lot faster!

The cute glitter polish I used is Sally Hansen Color Frenzy 320 Splattered. I love this glitter polish. Unfortunately, this one dries super slowly too!

I like the look of the 2 polishes, but I didn’t do my “homework” properly. I was sloppy with the cleaning up around the cuticles, and I could have given a certain cuticle a gentle push back. Anyhoo… what colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment?
