Review: Soap & Glory's Smoulder Kohl eye liner pencil

When were on our way home recently having been out all day my sister looked at me and commented that my make up was still there and that even my eye liner was still on and that she knew I hadn't reapplied it during the day. This has got to be the best pencil eye liner I have ever tried. It's super black, it's creamy so it applies easily and smoothly and it has amazing lasting power (it also comes with a sharpener attached to the lid).

The only downside to this eye liner is that I find it smudges a little bit and that sometimes at some point throughout the day I feel like I need to check and maybe wipe under my eyes. I have also noticed that next day after wearing it - even after using eye make up remover and washing my face - I still seem to get black around my eyes but that's a very small price to pay for such a lovely eye liner.

I lost the lid to mine and have noticed that it seems to have dried out a little bit but once you start using it again (or even if you were to slide it across your hand before using it on your eyes) it goes back to working perfectly.

If you're interested in trying this eye liner out for yourself you can buy it here for £5.00.

Have you tried this eye liner? Do you love it as much as I do?
What other Soap and Glory products do you recommend?

NOTD: OPI 'Bright lights, Big color'

For the last couple of days I have been wearing OPI's 'Bright lights, Big color' on my nails, which is a very pretty orange/pink colour that has a golden shimmer in it. I absolutely love this colour and don't have anything else quite like it. The only problem with this polish is the longevity is terrible and I feel like it starts to chip almost instantly (even with a topcoat). I think this may be one of the worse polishes I own chipping wise which is disappointing. The colour definitely makes up for it though and I think this will be one of my most worn polishes this summer!

Do you own this colour? Do you have problems with it too?

OPI Nail Polish Haul

L-R: My Address is Hollywood, Cajun Shrimp, Pink Friday, 
Bright Lights Big Colour and Gouda Gouda Two Shows

I recently went over to France and while on the boat popped into the Duty Free shop and came across an OPI stand. They were £8.80 each (so around £3 cheaper than the normal price in the UK) and since I ended up not spending very much at all while on holiday, I decided to use the rest of my Euros and pick some up!

I'm sorry this one isn't in natural light. It's basically a very vibrant red. 
I'm sure I will do a NOTD with this soon!

The boat we took over to France was P&O and their duty free shop was actually pretty impressive (although, it's not mean to be called 'Duty Free' anymore). They had lots of beauty brands in there, more than I expected. So if you're ever on a P&O, you should definitely check it out!

Do you own any of these colours? What do you think of OPI polish?
