Glamglow: Thirstymud and Supermud

I have been eagerly awaiting to get my hand's on Glamglow's newest mask 'Thirstymud'.
I actually couldn't help myself and got the Supermud too since I have problematic skin. I've been hearing amazing things about both of these masks so I thought I'd give them a go since I wasn't amazed by the much raved about original Glamglow tingle and exfoliate mud mask.
I also want to try the Powermud dual cleanse, sound's pretty nifty a mask that turn's into a oil when you wash it off?! Alas it is not available in the UK just yet.
I'm seriously feeling like a Glamglowaholic right now but after these splurges I won't be buying anymore face mask's for a while!

So Thirstymud is a intense hydrating mask which can be used by both men and women. It's multi-purpose too since you can leave it on overnight and wake up with a super hydrated face or even before you get on that plane to somewhere hot and wonderful. I purchased it from M&S during a promotion however there's 30% at Look fantastic so instead of the hefty £50 it's £34.99.

Supermud is the 'clearing' mask which is supposed to be great for pore size, blackheads/whiteheads. You can also use it as spot treatment. You can get this from Look Fantastic too for £34.99 instead of  £45.00.

I'm not going into them too much as first of all I haven't used either yet, secondly I'm thinking of doing more in depth review on both. I'm incredibly excited to smother these masks over my face. Have any of you tried them? What do you think?

This beauty is £45 and can be purchased here. I absolutely love it more so because planets, space everything up there intrigues me. It's beautiful and so very interesting.
Now I'm trying to decide if I can wait till Christmas for this gem.

Accidents and a Mini Skincare Haul with M&S and Apivita

So after this happened to my beloved...

Which yes I am gutted about, my own fault of course. I surprise surprise will now end up spending a bomb on a beautiful new lens...I might even just start fresh and go the whole shabang and get a new body too.
Anyway, going a little off track there, I will be using my handy Iphone for pictures so sorry for the lack of quality.
I wanted to share a little Skincare haul today!
Mark's and Spencer's beauty hall is pretty amazing since they updated it and added some amazing brands from all over the world. There is so much to choose from so I'd absolutely recommend a visit or check it out online here.
Another added bonus is that they have 20% off every now and again which is a nice perk especially if you're splashing out. Sometimes they have a discovery event on (like now!) which means they give you free gifts which are normally travel size or full sized so a great way to 'discover' when you buy products.
I had a little shop during the 20% off not long ago and bought some Apivita. Which is one of my favourite ranges that they stock, the brand is all about using as much natural ingredients as they can in their products and leaving out all the nasty parabans,silicones, mineral oils etc.
Here are my purchases:
                                                                         Revitalizing Face Mask £3.00

 Radiance serum: Free!! Because I spent a little over £40 I got this serum worth £29.50 for nothing. So along with 20% off all the prices I also got the added delight of this little gem. Love it!
Have you bought anything from the M&S beauty hall lately?

Little trip.

Not long ago I went on a little trip with my family and we stayed in Milton Keynes which just made me nostalgic for America believe it or not. The area we were in was so nice and rather new, boulevards and trees and the way everything was set out just reminded me of California. We were within walking distance of a shopping centre so I of course ventured off.

 I wish I got more and better pictures but these will do, I of course did a little shopping and got some things I had been after some of you will have seen the picture below that I posted on my instagram (monikarr) account.
I actually managed to not spend too much, I am trying to spend less and save up for nothing in particular (except maybe a holiday to America!) and even opened a new savings account and so far it's not going too bad but all these new products that keep coming out are such temptations to a beauty junkie like me. So I only got some of the new Barry M nail art pens which I will review soon (love them) and the much talked/hyped/raved about falsies mascara from Maybelline. Have you guys tried any of these? what do you think?

Nails inc Black taxi & Floral street

I do love me some black polish and of course white is the perfect colour to go with it especially with the monochrome trend that's hot right now. Cue bold lines, graphics prints, contrasting colours, and textured leather effect polishes (which are definitely on my hit list when I next go shopping).

Today I used Black Taxi and Floral street on my nails and turned my accent finger into the infamous yin yang symbol which I'm a huge fan of.

 For someone with a huge nail polish collection I don't own a whole lot of Nails inc I think the £11 per bottle price tag puts me off but I do have to say I really enjoyed the application process, it was very opaque I only used one coat (could have done two to make it more even on some nails but not necessary). It makes life easier if your using base and top coats, in this case I just used a top coat and I'm very pleased with the results and the polishes themselves. I also love the look of the leather effect nail polishes- the edgy black or nude leather look with skull embellishments are my favourite.
What's your favourite Nails inc polish?
*I was kindly sent these to try out but of course my opinion is unbiased and honest.
