George: Movie Star Swatch and Mini Review

Hello there :) I have had this George polish since Christmas, along with another 2 that will be posted within the next couple of weeks. Here is the first one;

This is such a beautiful shade, it's a beigey brown with a purple sheen through it. When swatched you can only really see it in sunlight, it just looks mostly purple without being directly in the sun. I think with the more layers you put on effects the shade too.  It needed about 3 layers to become opaque, however I have a feeling I used 4 for good measure.

I'm not quite sure how much I paid for this polish, I think it was either £1 or £1.75, which is great even if it's 5ml or product. Polishes like this are perfect for people who change their polish up regularly. I'm unsure of how long it lasts, as I think I only wore it a day and then decided I wanted to see how one of the others looked.

Have you tried any George polishes? I'd love to know!

BFTE Cosmetics: Haul & Review

Hey guys, today I have for you a haul from BFTE Cosmetics. Firstly I would like to say how amazed I am as to how fast the package arrived, despite them being in America, and me obviously being in the UK, the package was sent the day after I ordered, and got to me in exactly a week, I was so surprised as I thought I'd be waiting about a month! Eeeee.

Here is my haul in total, I bought 5x Red Cherry Lashes, & the 16 sample set with travel case.

Lashes: #66, #102, #106 #218 & #583. There are $2 each, which is amazing! Now onto the best bit, eyeshadows!

Overall, I am so entirely pleased with my order! Can't wait to have a little play around with the shadows, I've already used some of the lashes, I wore #66 on a night out and the #102's for a shoot on monday, they are amazing! I've never used Red Cherry's before however I'm so glad that I did.

I thought that the bright blue would bring out the beautiful pink shimmer, and it did! 

I'm so pleased with how it turned out, and how changing the base colour can make such a difference! 

Do you know of any great layering combos? I'd love to know!
