Products I will NEVER repurchase

So today I decided to look through my make up and pick out those products which I had bought thinking they were great when in fact they were rubbish.

I thought I would share my thoughts and experiences with each product


Firstly, I had purchased the benefit bag gal lash mascara. I had looked at many reviews on this products saying how good it was and how long it made your lashes and that it was definitely worth it's money.

Which in fact its IS NOT worth its money! Its does not make any difference to my lashes. My lashes still look the same without me applying any mascara on them. Now this might be because I'm the knid of person who likes their lashes to stand out, but for those who like the 'not noticeable' lashes.

The only good point I would say about the mascara is that the packaging is great, its colouful and it stands out.

To conclude I just think this product (all i can describe it is naff) is not worth wasting your money on.

Secondly, the collection 2000 supersize mascara.

The reason I wouldnt repurchase this product is that it is meant to make your lashes longer, but I found that I had to use other mascaras before I applied the collection 2000 one.

It says 'supersize your lashes. Super volumising mascara for big, bold lashes'

Personally I dont think it does that.


It is true when people say you  get what you pay for. I would buy a more expensive product.

The mua bb is meant to prime,smoothes and conceals.

After buying such cheap products I am most likely going to invest in a high end BB cream in the future just because of the fact that  it doesnt do what it says on the tin.


I dont usually use bronzer just because I dont think it looks good on me (each to their own) but i decided to buy one a few weeks back

Sadly,I cant tell you what brand it is just because the top has fallen off with the name on it.

I think this bronzer is just too darker (maybe its just me)

Since im very fair skinned I dont think bits of my face to looked 'tanned' as the rest of my body isnt (if you understand)

But anyway. yeaj i dont really recommened bronzers  if your fair skinnedand hate looking 'tanned'


OH MY GOD! eurgh i stand stand this product with a passion and I dont understand why people buy this!

No offence.

But this foundation is just not nice, well if you like the unnatural look.

If you like to look natural with your foundations then this isnt for you.
When the foundation is applied it just looks like you have just caked it on and you can tell you are wearing a lot of it.
I tried to become tanned for a night out with was a mistake. I bought two types of tan to try out.

One was Rimmel and the other was wipes from Bodycare.
The Rimmel tan said it was waterproof which is a complete lie! I know it only lasts 24 hours but a little bit of water went of my leg after applying the tan 3 hours before and it made some of the tan come off.

Now I dont know if i was doing something wrong or not but this is just my experience.

The wipes from bodycare which I used were easy to apply, but the finished result looked unnatural and I like to look natural with my  foundation and tan.

So after my experience with tan I have decided to stay away from the stuff!

The MUA blush I found was a very dark pink compared to the actual shade in the container.

The MUA liquid eyeliner I just didnt like from the first time I used it. I t might because im used to using the eyeliner in the pots and applying it with an angled brush, I dont know haha.

The last MUA product isthe blonde eyebrow pencil. I found with this product that it didnt look right. I think its because it wasnt the correct shade of blonde which I thought it would be. On the bright side the brush on the end is amazing!

Im so sorry most of these products are MUA.

The mua powder is a dark and that was the lightest you could get. It look very orange looking when I applied it. My lesson is Im staying away from mua apart from buying the eyeshadows because they are great!

Anyway I hope you enjoyed this ramble of a blog! Leave a comment below on what you think.

Also send me a tweet and follow me @natashahands

Today my order from Miss arrived.
A couple of days ago I ordered:

The leopard print dress which was around £26.99.
I thought this was a good price since I found a simular style in Topshop for around £36.00.
Anyways the dress is made out really good material and is not really heavy but isn't as light as other dresses I have bought before. This dress would look great with black shoes eg: heel or flats etc or sandals. This dress is shorter than a usual dress as im about 5ft 9.

Leopard print dress.

The other thing I ordered was a retro mini skirt. I love this skirt to bits just because of the four blocks prints of colour stamped on it. The material it is made with is the striped black material.
I think this would be great for going out partying in and just for summer.It would look great with a simple plain top either white,black etc. For shoes sandals or flats or even heels would look great!

Retro mini skirt.

The packaging that these items arrived in were different to what my usual parcels arrive in. Both the dress and skirt were in there clear plastic bags but were both in a sort of pillow case looking bag which was black.

Outer of the parcel packaging.

The pillow case packaging i mentioned.

Anyways sorry for this random blog, hope you enjoyed it

Nail varnish

Today I discovered technic nail varnish. You can buy thes nail varnishes from body care and come in a range or colours.

Over the past couple of months I have become addicted to buying nail varnishes. Ever since I have been wearing nail varnish everyday my nails have seemed to have grown quite a bit.
The technic range are very simular to the OPI nail varnishes but obviously come at a much cheaper price. I paid 99p each. I think these are very resunable prices.

Technic nail varnish in the colour Amethyst

Technic nail varnish in the colour Bonanza

Rimmel London nail varnish in the colour disco ball.

Rimmel London nail varnish in the colour Azure.

Barry M crackle effect in the colour black.

Barry M nail varnish in the colour Strawberry.

For once I didn't buy something pink!!!!

My favourite nail varish are the ones that change colour and have that petrol look to them and of course pink!

For most of you will know that I am obsessed (well that isn't the word really but oh well) with the colour pink.

Barry M crackle nail varnish is another great buy! I personally think you should only buy the Barry M crackle due to previous experiences with other brands. This is because other brands don't seem to crackle and set as well as Barry M. But it's up to you really. You can buy the Barry M range from Boots.

Another popular nail varnish range called Rimmel London. These dry very quickly and leave a great coverage over the nail. You can buy these from most cosmetics shops I think (I got mine from Boots).

Anyways if you have any questions or anything tweet me  @natashahands

Much love Natasha

Great value lipsticks!

Recently, I went make up shopping trying to find a cheap but great quality lipstick. I went searching in loads of different shops and online BUT then I went into Boots and saw the Collection 2000 range of lipsticks. So after the long search of looking for a cheap lipstick I bought the Collection 2000 lipstick in the shade perfect pink 2.

Personally I think It amazing!!!
This lipstick lasts for a very long time and brings out your lips. I think its very good value for something with this good quality to it! The price is only £2.99 which come on is nothing for a lipstick as where brands such as MAC and other high brands price their lipsticks at around £13 pounds each.

This is what Collection 2000 lisptick packaging used to look like.
This is what the packaging now looks like. Shade Perfect Pink 2

I love this lipstick that much I had to buy another one.
Before the packaging was black but a hint of pink on the lid but now it has changed to all pink.

Im hoping this blog helped and told you about this great range that is out :)
If there is anything you want me to blog about or want to get in touch for questions tweet me @natashahands or email me at

Many thanks 
Love Natasha
