Another Blog?!?

For a while now I've had a book related twitter account, heartingTHG. This account has all things The Hunger Games(hence the name), Divergent, Harry Potter etc etc. So, I decided to make a blog based on the account which is pretty laid back and includes things such as new trailer/stills, reviews and recommendations.

Here is the link if you want to go check it out here

Please check it out as it shows my other love which is books!

Thanks for reading! Emma :)

Review: Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks

I haven't really heard these products being talked about in either youtube or blogs, and I cant understand why! These lip sticks are amazing and definitely one of my most used lip products!
Maybelline Color Sensational lipsticks - £7.19

All of the colours in this line are beautiful! I love them! Even though I only have 3, I have a pretty descent idea of what ones are the best and most moisturising.

 '535 Ruby Star'
This colour is personally my least favourite because I find it awful bright. Also because it is not the most moisturising as it has golden shimmer through it. This is probably better for someone that likes bright red lip colours.

'150 Stellar Pink'
This is by far one of my favourite lip colours! It truly does look beautiful! It's shimmery but still moisturising unlike the one above, and it's a great everyday wear! I'd go and get this if you like a little shimmer in your lip product!

'540 Hollywood Red'
This colour really is beautiful. It is a matte brownish pinkish red which means it is not as full on as some reds can be. The name is perfect as it gives a perfect Hollywood red colour. I love this colour far far too much, it is also the most moisturising of the bunch which I believe is due to the matte finish.

Nails of the week - 14/10/2013

This week I decided to go for a rose goldish kind of colour, which so far I am loving! I feel it screams fall although is interchangeable into different seasons. The products I used were:
the 17 base coat I always use
Rimmel Salon Pro in '378 Posh Trash' - £4.49
I love the formula of these nail polishes and they give such a gel-like finish. I love them! Although I normally go for the Maybelline color show polishes because in my opinion, they Rimmel ones are on the higher scale on the highstreet nail polish scale. But still, amazing formula and beautiful colour!

Maybelline Color Show in '649 Clear Shine' - £2.99
This is my typical top coat now so I'm not going to bore you with another mini review. Its just an amazing top coat that gives a beautiful shine!

I then finished off by adding 3 gems to the top coat before it dried to add a little sparkle!

Review: Rimmel Scandal Eyes Lycra Flex Mascara

So, I was in Superdrug last week and they were having an offer on Rimmel that if you spend £10 or more on nail polish you get a free mascara. I easily spent the £10 on my nail polishes and collected my free Rimmel Scandal Eyes Lycra Flex mascara, so I thought I'd give you a review of a product I wouldn't normally think of buying.

The mascara can be a little clumpy and hold your lashes together so I use a eyebrow and lash comb from Costal Scents (BR-C-LC) to separate my lashes and give a more full effect. This mascara has a good staying power and does not flake to the touch. It also makes your lashes feel nice because of the lycra in it. Here are some pictures of how it applies, what it looks like and a picture of my lashes before and after I comb them out.

Review: Rimmel Space Dust

Rimmel Space Dust in '003 Aurora'
This is now by far one of my favourite nail polishes even though I've only had it a day! This is a perfect kind of rose gold colour that I adore! This is also great because it give great glitter coverage, only 2 coats are needed for a full glitter effect which is amazing because most glitter polishes only give little glitter coverage. The polish has a variety of sizes of glitter which also gives better coverage. All of the colours in this range are beautiful and I would highly recommend them!
When you apply the polish it feels a little like your painting them with a sand because of the fine glitter, but it still applies smoothly. The finished result feels slightly rough, but I'm sure with a few layers of a thickly applied top coat, that it should even out. I only applied a layer of my top coat and it still feels rough, but I got used to it very quickly.
This is definitely a product worth trying if you love the effect of glitter polishes (although trust me, it doesn't look too sparkly on your nails, I promise you!). Fab new product, much needed in the nail polish world!
You can find this nail polish for £3.99 at: Boots - link and Superdrug - link (free delivery until Oct 22nd!)
