Nima Brushes Review.

Don't you just love the colours of these brushes? Well that's not the only reason I wanted these. I needed more eye brushes for myself as I like to keep my professional brushes and personal brushes separate. When I seen Nima Brushes had an eye set with basically all the eye brushes I wanted. I jumped at the chance to get them. Plus that folio they come in is pretty cute too!

This eye set has 8 eye brushes and they are perfect for perfecting any eye look you want to create. There are blending brushes, flat and pencil brushes. Small detail brushes and an angle brush which I love for powder for my eyebrows. 

Not only are these brushes pretty to look at with the colour but they are great quality brushes aswell. 

I also purchased 2 single brushes for myself that I needed. I wanted a small stipple brush to blend in my contour and I wanted a dome shaped brush to set my under eye area with powder. 

Stipple Brush 'Caroline'

Dome Shapped 'Wendy'

I use these brushes on a daily occasion on myself. They wash great and they really do exactly what I want. The handles can get dirty easy with the colour but they also are easily cleaned. 

These brushes all are named with names of people I presume are close friends or family of the owners of this company which I love because its so personal. 

The eye set costs €65 and the single brushes were €16 each.  

Thanks for reading, Alanna xx

Cocoa Brown Shampoo and Conditioner

So it took me a long time to try these out. They were first launched in July. I am one of those bulk buyers and had a few shampoos to use before needing more. When I needed new shampoo I headed straight to Penney's and bought both the shampoo and conditioner. 

I heard and read great reviews on both these products. They are kind to the scalp which is a massive plus to me as I suffer from psoriasis on the scalp. They also are kind to hair extensions and that is a massive plus too!

First off I want to talk about about the shampoo. This is kind to scalp and it actually is. Its almost calming. This lathers great on the hair and has a hint of a scent. Nothing too over powering. I honestly LOVE this product. My hair is so shiny after using it and I get compliments in the shine every time I use it. Usually when a shampoo gives amazing shine you don't get very long out of the wash. I noticed your hair gets greasier quicker but not with this shampoo. 

Conditioner is something that some people can take or leave but not me. I have to have it. My hair is dry and frizzy and I need it to get a brush through it. I only use conditioner on the ends of my hair though. This has the same mild scent as the shampoo.

The best part of these products for me, is the price. They are soooo affordable and I got them for €3.99 each in Penney's and I have purchased the shampoo 3 times already. These are hands down my favourite affordable shampoo and conditioners. You can also get them in local chemists. If I were you, I would definitely give them a try.
