Emily's Tuesday Tip: Face Wipes

Hi Everyone,
hopefully might be doing one of these every Tuesday I think it might be helpful for you if I gave you a few beauty tips you didn't already know and you find it interesting. So today it is face wipes in order to keep them fresh and moist make sure they are sealed and tip them upside down and they will be moist.

Review: Collection 2000

Hello Everyone! This is a review on some of my products that I have from “Collection 2000” I don't have every make-up item from their range but I do think they are a great brand of make-up and with continue to buy from them, so lets get straight into it! x

Collection 2000 Hot Looks Nail Polishes - £1.79

Firstly I have 5 of their nail polishes, these are really great if you are in a rush and don't have time to wait too long for your nail polish to dry if you put a thin coat on all your nails the first finger will completely be dry but it is very streaky! Then if you put a next coat on (which you do need) to build up a better and brighter colour it is also dry! They have a great range of colours for all the seasons. I do have to say that it does chip in after a matter of 2 days :( Which is a bit annoying but I am sure if you have (or purchase) a good top coat that makes your nail polish have a longer life it will work much better. I have 43 Fruit Salad, Parma Violets, Blue Moon, Candy Floss and Lemon soda all great colours in my opinion! And great value for £1.79

Collection 2000 Maxiflex Nail Polish - £2.99

I have a had this nail polish for donkey years (that's why it's got nail polish on the lid) and it is a great colour and lasts forever as I have had it for a few years the consistency had gone all gloopy :( which is really annoying this is in the colour “Nudge Nudge!”

Collection 2000 Extreme Felt tip Eyeliner - £2.99

Next I have a felt tip liner, I accidentally got a purple one I think I must have not seen the colour on the end in the shop and thought it was a black one but I have tried it out on top of a black one and you can't see it is purple which is great as I would have wasted £2.99 :( But if you do choose to go out and buy this please check twice what the colour is!

Collection 2000 Intense Black Eyeliner - £1.99

Also have a pencil eye-liner, this is also great it lasts the whole day and the pigmentation is amazing it is jet black and it is so soft so it is easy to apply. So defiantly recommend this! And the price is amazing too! This is in 01 Black Magic. I did have another one but it was just a plain black one but it is still good.

Collection 2000 Colour lash Mascara

I have a mascara and this is my favourite mascara so far and it does what any good mascara does! It isn't voluminous and doesn't build up thick lashes it is just one that would suit just a natural look. It does make you look like you have quite a few lashes but it is not for a dramatic look! It doesn't smudge, lasts the whole day and it waterproof to a certain extent.

Collection 2000 Pure Lipgloss

I have 2 lip glosses 1 just a plain clear one (icing 01) and another which is a baby pink (sorbet 08) colour these aren't sticky smell quite nice and last a couple of hours.

Collection 2000 Angelic Eye Shadow Palette


I have an eye shadow palette with 9 colours in it the pigmentation of them is fantastic and they last all day long you don't really need a primer on as they don't fall out. I have only really used the browns but perhaps I will be adventurous one day and try them out.

So that's my review on the make-up brand “Collection 2000”. All my opinions are my own hope you enjoyed and please if you want to see more to come follow :)

Love Emily xx

P.S Any requests? please comment I really need some inspiration at the moment and and questions will be more than happy to answer!

My Favourite Nail Polishes!

Hello, so here are my spring nail polishes, I am quite into pastels and bright colours in spring (are you?) Anyway, I absolutely love nail polish, but these colours I don't think are really the ones to wear in winter.

L-R MUA Shade 15, MUA Shade 12, MUA Shade 9
I think I have a little big obsession with nail polish than I do with make-up and these beauty's well you can't go wrong they come at only a small fortune for a burst of colour, I can't believe these are a £1 it is amazing value and the polish itself it very good too it lasts about 4 days,  it doesn't chip that easierly and you only needs 2 coats and it dries quite quickly I think I have maybe 3 more of these but I have to recommend that you go out and buy one of these as you won't regret it I am sure!

L-R Max Factor Diva Coral, Primark Mint Green

Love the orange it is really bright which I like and also love the green although the consistency is runny. 

Beauty UK 
love this colour too so girly and pretty it is just a simple pink and I love it to bits!

So that's it hope you enjoyed reading and see you next time,  also any requests? Comment down below x

Everyday Make-up Products

Hiya, this is my everyday make-up products that I use (you guessed it) everyday, so just gonna get right into it and here they are!

First, I apply my daily moisturiser (which isn't in the picture, sorry) then apply a light foundation this one is from the "Miss Sporty" range this is only very light coverage which is good for my skin as I don't get many spots or redness but sometimes when I do have the "bad days" it does a good job and at £3.49 you can't go wrong.

Second,  I apply my under eye concelar this one is from Primark and this just combats any darkness under my eyes, then I put a dot of my Natural Collection Concealer which I use as a eyelid primer (it does work quite well considering) and blend it in now yes obviously if you have applied a eye primer you need eye shadow but yes again this is not in the photo but I either use my Elf 32pc eye shadow palette in warm or my Claire's neutral palette. I use my Elf crease brush and eye shadow brush.

Next I apply my Natural Collection Pressed powder with my pink kabuki from Primark then my Elf blush in Shy I apply this with my Elf Blushing and Bronzing Brush.

After that sometimes I use my black eye-liner from Collection 2000 I find this is really quite good especially for £1.99 (can't beat a good bargain!) it lasts the whole school day which I LOVE and the pigmentation is so good! I apply this to my water line. Then I apply a couple of coats of my Collection 2000 Mascara also have to say this is quite a good mascara for only £2.99.

Lastly the lips! First I apply my good old green tin from Superdrug then let it soak in for a few minutes then apply my Elf Lipstick in Classy!

So that's my everyday make-up,  hope you enjoyed and any questions please comment below!

Wishlist #1

So here it is..I was going to this on a wednesday as people do a "Wednesday Wishlist" but I might as well do it now considering I already have the picture sorted! So hope you enjoy! x

1. So, I have been wanting OPI for what seems like ages but haven't weighed out the odds yet whether it will actually be worth it, my friend Izzy purchased one and said they were good so that is kinda steering me towards it! I also think I probally earn it as well with lots of exams recently I think I need a bit of treat!

2.I've wanted to try Topshop make-up and also cream blushers so why not bring the two together? Not sure about this colour might get a different one. Correct me if I am wrong but is the Shade Head over heels? I didn't really look to be honest...oops!

3.I also have been wanting to tryout some of the Miss Sporty range of nail polishes but didn't no whether they are any good but when I saw a review from Louise I could not resist and also I would like to add a navy blue to my collection of what 50 nail polishes! I know how could you collect that many!! I am quite ashamed of myself when one day I counted them up and there were 50 and it doesn't really look like it either!

4.I have gone many a time to Lush and wibbled and wobbled this shower jelly (haven't you?) and the cool thing is your hands don't feel really sticky after it...also the smell of this is sort of blackcurrenty which I LOVE! Also I think for £3.50? this is quite a bargain as I am sure you could probably get quite a few uses out of it!

5.I really need a new pair of good straighteners as mine are totally rubbish! I saw these in boots but I am stuck with Remingtons or the Babilss ones I just can't decide and if it was me I would go for the cheaper ones but they are both £18.99 which I know is a good price but I just can't decide...I am sure I will come to a decidedtion in the end! But there we go another thing to note about me I'm SO indecisive!  it really annoys me at times.

So there we go my wishlist,  hope you enjoyed reading and please feel free to comment

NOTD: Rainbow coloured Leopard Print Nails!

So yes I fancied like another round of colourful nails but this time with a snazzy leopard print design this is really easy to create because all you need are you nail colours and a piece of card for you to blop the nail polish onto and either a end of a make-up brush or some good old bobby pins to help you get the dots, I am sure if you want a detailed tutorial there are many on youtube!
If you want some more fancy designs I would defiantly  recommend "Cutepolish" as that is where I have got my ideas from, another nail design "in the pipe line" are some Hunger Games nails which are so cool so I will defiantly be doing those!

So here is the design!

Thought I'd do it big so you could see clearly! x

L-R MUA Shade (will update when I can find out what colour it is...sorry)  Purperly Pink , BeautyUK Baby Pink, MUA Shade 15 Bright Pink, Max Factor Diva Coral orange , MUA Shade 8 Red , W7 Crackle Nail Polish Earthquake Black, MUA Shade 9 Blue
