Barry M | Raspberry

Whenever I pop into Boots or Superdrug i can't resist buying a new nail varnish or two. Barry M have the most gorgeous range of colours and most of them are £2.99 each - bargain!

The newest addition to my Barry M collection is 'Raspberry'. It's a berry red colour, perfect for the colder months and is very quick drying. It also looks lovely underneath a glitter top coat. One coat gives a very dark pinky-red and with two coats a berry red.

I've had raspberry on my nails for three days now and small chips are only just starting to appear. For the price I think Barry M nail varnishs are amazing and can't wait to expand my collection.

What are your favourite Barry M nail polishes?

My Favourite Face Mask

I first picked this face mask up a few months ago after reading a few good reviews about it, it definitely lived up to my expectations and I since have re-purchased twice.
I'm a bit sceptical about high street face masks as in the past I have found that some have dried my skin out and some I have noticed no difference whatsoever. However I'm very glad I found this one, it has improved my skin noticably since I've been using it and my pores are a lot less noticable than before.
I use this mask twice a week and leave it on for around 10-15 mins. The mask dries fairly quickly after application and unlike most masks doesnt crack when dried. It aims to draw excess oils that lead to breakouts out of the skin, and when drying small dark spots appear where this is happening which shows how well it works.
I've really enjoyed using this face mask and will be purchasing a few more Una Brennan bits soon.
Have you tried anything from the range?
