Beauty Haul ft L'Oreal, Gosh & Essence

Just a quick haul of what I've picked up this week. Regular post coming this Sunday! Excuse the photo quality I'm posting this using the blogger app :)

L'oreal Casting Creme Gloss hair dye in 300 Darkest Brown 7.89e.
No7 Protect & Perfect in 10 New Ivory - I saw this on sale for 10.48e down from 20.95e so decided to pick it up, I've used it before in the past so I decided to try it again. I'll let you know how it goes :)
Gosh Instant Tan Gel in Dark - I picked this up for 10.20e to try it out! So again I'll probably do a post on it once I try it out!
Essence Eyebrow Designer Pencil in 02 Brown - This was 1.89e. Bargain! I've used this a few times this week so expect a post on it!
Essence Eyeliner Pen - picked this up for 3.09e because my gel liner was all gone and I wanted to try a liquid liner instead. Again expect a post!
Essence I Heart Rock Gloss Eye Pencil - It was 3 for 2 across all cosmetics at the pharmacy I went to so I just picked this up to try. Originally 1.59e.

'Night Out' Makeup Essentials

These are my makeup essentials for a night out!
Ive already done a 'sweatproof your makeup' post with which this post goes along with. This is what I actually take out with me to touch up my makeup and prevent shine.
I usually only take a small bag with me so I really have narrowed it down to the essentials to allow room in my bag for my phone, camera, id, money etc!

Harness Necklaces

So I've seen quite a few of these harness necklaces online especially on Tumblr. Im not sure how I personally feel about them at the moment. I dont love them but I dont hate them. I think it depends on the necklace, some look really good and others just look like you've taken a chain and wrapped it around your body. I also think it depends on the outfit.

I know quite a few people like this trend and during my 'research' I guess you could call it, I saw that Etsy had a huge selection, but at a high price. Most were well over €30, with the 'prettiest' ones being about €50. Which is well, ridiculous. I'd never pay that much for something that was a 'trend piece'.
But luckily for you I've found 3 harness necklaces on for only £12.00 each! Waaay more reasonable!

Below I've picked out my favourite harness necklace from Etsy. Beside it is one of the necklaces! The only difference is one is silver and the other is gold (and also the price!).

            Etsy €37.42 here                                                  £12.00 here

What do you think of the harness necklace trend?

NOTD - Nail Of The Day - Shellac Diamond Manicure

Omg you would not believe how hard this was to do on myself! Trying to get the diamonds in line without huge gaps between them was surprisingly hard considering your nail isn't an exact square/rectangle.

Sweat Proof Your Makeup

I decided to do this post because I recently had this problem but to be honest, even though I knew how to prevent it, I was in a rush and didn't follow these steps (slapping myself on the wrist for being naughty!). So I thought by sharing this, I could help prevent someone feeling the shame I felt!

Picture this, you make so much effort perfecting your makeup to go out, you wake up the next morning and log onto facebook, only to see yourself looking a hot shiny mess in all the photos.
You can't prevent the heat in a nightclub or yourself from sweating BUT you can help your makeup last longer and stay shine free! Heres how..
