Free Ciaté Lipgloss With Marie Claire!

Ciaté St. Barts

We all love a good magazine freebie and this is one not to be missed!

I first came across this on Holly's blog over at

When Holly said it is M.A.C's Hue lipstick but in a lip gloss it had to be mine.

M.A.C Hue is one of my all time favourite lipsticks.

St.Barts is the lighter shade of the 2 being given out free with Marie Claire Magazine. I now want the brighter coral shade as these are gorgeous lip glosses.

For those of you who don't like sticky lip glosses then this is perfect for you, its such a creamy consistantsy that its a pleasure to wear throughout the day.

I love Ciaté Nail Polishes and now love their lip glosses too.

It retails at £9 but with the magazine you pay a only £3.60 or even £2.50 for the travel size magazine so go grab one quick before the September issue is released on the 2nd of August.

Also before i go in the September issue of Marie Claire Ciaté are back again but with 2 gorgeous shades of nail polish!!

They 100% cant be missed.

Did you pick up this months issue of Marie Claire?

Ops! Varnish Clean Up - Andrea Fulerton Nail Boutique

Seeing as i am on a real nail polish kick at the moment i was really pleased when i came across this

Ops! Varnish Clean Up

I instantly knew it would be a life saver!!

I can't paint my nails and have them all messy they have to be perfect so when i do make a mistake it is slightly hard to clean it up..

Not now i have this little wonder.

This is a specially formulated fluid (nail polish remover) with its customised slender brush for cleaning up any mistakes.
So yeah OK this just is technically nail polish remover but with such a thin brush it does really do the job.
It can be used to remove mistakes, clean up your manicure line or even to make purpose smudges.
All you need to do is brush the area and then clean off the brush with a tissue and re-dip into the bottle.

It is a little pricey at £4.99 when this is clearly just nail polish remover but i do really like it.

You can get this from Superdrug Here and the rest of the Andrea Fulerton Nail Boutique Range.

What do you reckon? Would this help you out and be a life saver?

Dr.Organic Virgin Olive Oil Cuticle & Nail Solution

Painting my nails and keeping them in perfect condition has been top of my list recently so when i was contacted to try this Dr Organic Virgin Olive Oil i was super excited and couldn't wait to give it a whirl.

It contains virgin Olive oil, Shea butter, jojoba seed oil, coco butter, vitamin e, tea tree oil, blackcurrant extract, African coffee tree oil. So much goodness!!

This is an intense therapy which naturally moisturises and helps restore dry, cracked and ridged nails.

What Dr. Organics Say

'For truly beautiful, healthy looking hands our cuticle and nail treatments are a must have solution...Dr O'

This is the most moisturising cuticle oil i have ever tried. I just dab a small pea sized amount using the easy use applicator and massage into the cuticles. They are left feeling so smooth, soft and looking really glowy! Although this is an oil its not too greasy and doesn't leave a horrible residue. It also smells so good a mix of olive oil and vanilla...think that is the coca butter coming through!

The tube is small enough to keep in your bag or make-up bag but holds a good amount of product at 15ml.

Also great as it is free from parabens, SLS, artificial colours, harsh chemicals, fragrances and preservatives.

My nails love love love this and look amazing!

Dr. Organics is exclusively available at Holland And Barrett and this retails for only £6.19

I cant wait to try more from Dr.Organics
