Just a post on everything and nothing today. I've not been feeling too well so I've just been in the house getting my boyfriend to make me tea and go to the shops to get me chocolate, haha! As I've been in, I've been able to do more beauty stuff that I wouldn't have otherwise done, you know, painting my nails, taking care of my skin etc. I'm so bad as I never usually do more with my skin other than slap a bit of moisturiser on in the mornings and evenings and take my make up off before bed. I have to be in a certain mood to paint my nails too, otherwise I don't.
Elf Mineral Infused Face Primer - £6
Do any of you get really bad skin during the winter? My skin goes slightly flakey in areas and I use this facial primer and it's one of the best I've ever used. People have compared it to a smashbox primer but it's a lot cheaper. It makes my skin smoother and a lot easier to apply foundation to. I'd definitely recommend it if you've not used it. You can find the product on the ELF website here. It's also meant to help with excess oil and enlarged pores.
I also decided to try the Gold Rush Model's Own nail polish which you can see here. It doesn't look as bad on as what I thought it would, and it's definitely appropriate for the festive season. I'll probably end up wearing Juicy Jules on Christmas day though as I'm more of a silver gal than a gold gal.
I also received the most lovely card from the lovely Chloe from Chloe Likes To Talk yesterday. As some of you know she was the winner of my recent giveaway. The card was just to say thank you for the gifts, which was a welcome surprise. So thank you Chloe for the card, it's sitting next to me right now (and how did you know I was so fond of cupcakes?)
What do you think of the Gold Rush nail polish? Would you wear it during the festive season?
