NOTD || Barry M Gelly Nail Colour "Lilac"

On my way to Feel Good Sunderland Event (will be putting a full blog about this) I couldn't resist having a cheeky look in Boots and Superdrug for some essentials I needed topping up. I bought Garnier soothing eye make up remover because I noticed my cleanser wasn't enough to get all my mascara off and was making my eyes really sensitive and sore. This is great though as its for sensitive eyes and has no alcohol, perfume or colourants in it.

I also bought Johnsons cleanser as its a simple soothing cleanser as I was sick of using skin care in the past specifically for oily/problematic skin because they made my skin so dry! I also re purchased the Avene eau thermale spring water (I love this separate blog to come), a re purchase of dry shampoo for days when greasy hair just won't do! I also bought my first Real Technique brush (I know probably the last person ever in the blogging world) and will try out the stippling brush soon as I've heard so many great reviews on it :)

Now onto the Nails...I have got quite a lot Barry M nail polishes and think they are great but decided to buy the Gelly one in Lilac shade to give a try.... I will definitely be buying more of the Gelly range as the first thing I noticed was how quickly it dried even with two coats and how lovely and shiny it was, also think the shade is a lovely pastel spring/summer shade great for day or night time.

Let me know if you like any of these or any other shades in the Barry M Gelly range that are lovely.

Mini Benefit Haul

Hi everyone hope you are ok, back in February I kept seeing Benefit's "the Pore fessional" pro balm which everybody was raving about, and "They're Real" mascara which was 100% proven to give the effect of false eyelashes in magazines and adverts I went to the Benefit counter in Debenhams and told the make-up artist what I wanted and she did my full make-up and recommending what would be good for my face tone etc....and this is what I bought...

Benefit's "They're Real" Mascara

Although I don't normally like big fat brushes for mascara (I couldn't get away with Benefit's "Bad Girl" mascara years ago) for this reason, this brush is not too big as I have smallish eyes and when using this it does not get mascara all below my eyebrow. you can see from the pictures I think this mascara is a holy grail product (even at £18.50) as it totally transforms my eyelashes to look as though I am wearing false ones, the mascara doesn't cake on the eyelashes giving that clumpy effect, and every time I wear it I instantly feel much better as it gives me that wide awake look.  In fact, I have tried a LOT of mascaras (some cheap, some expensive) and think this is the best, definitely worth the price tag! :) It stays on all day, doesn't smudge and doesn't budge when in the shower or swimming, just make sure you use a good eye makeup remover as it does cling on. I think it gives fabulous results!

The Pore fessional Pro Balm

I had read so many reviews about the pro balm and how great it was but I was worried before I bought it that it would make my dry skin worse however this is a great primer for make up but also it is oil free, lightweight, translucent as you can see from the swatch, and feels super silky and just glides onto the skin.  It’s as if you can feel it just soaking up any oily-ness from your skin and can feel it tighten.

Benefit “Coralista” Face Powder Blush

Benefit Post 1            Benefit Post 2

I love bright blushes, especially as we are heading into summer soon and my favourite shades are definitely pinks and corals.  Whilst the girl was doing my make-up on the counter she recommended this blush and said it suited my face tone lovely.  I think it is a gorgeous colour (sorry for the swatch it looks bolder than what it is) but also this has a gorgeous subtle shimmer to it (not glittery as I hate that) but a lovely sheen shimmery frosty finish.  I adore this blusher.

Nivea Express Hydration Primer

I  just happened to come across this primer when I was in Superdrug the other day as previous primers (some high brand) had left me with dry flaky skin.  I must say this is one of the best primers I have ever used, and it’s an absolute bargain at £4.99! It only takes a minute to sink in and my make-up lasts all day.  It is light based gel that absorbs instantly so you can apply make-up straight away.  It states it moisturises your skin with effective hydrators and vitamins for long lasting hydration and provides an even and smooth base for make up application.  The brilliant thing is too I was looking for a primer as essentially my skin was dry, but this bargain beauty not only works great at a primer but also as a moisturiser too! Even when I have not been wearing make up too stay in the house I have been putting this on and really makes my skin nice and smooth and shine free.  I cannot say enough about this….I have even since went out and bought a couple of more jars :)

My Hair Saviour || Moroccan Oil

My first proper blog post is going to be about this little beauty :) I first discovered Moroccan Oil a few years back when it was all the rave and seen it in various magazines and decided to give it a try. Well…I’m glad i did!


It advocates “a unique formula rich in antioxidant organ oil that instantly absorbs hair to immediately enhance manageability, shine and deliver long term conditioning without leaving residue.  It says to apply a small amount throughout damp or dry hair, and style as usual.

I have shoulder length blonde hair and am constantly having highlights and as my hair is naturally curly if I left it to dry naturally I use straighteners practically every day or every other day so as you can see my hair is normally dry, some split ends and sometimes unmanageable when blow drying.  This product has been my hair saviour….my hair is in much better condition generally, I have noticed my hair is growing considerably faster than normal, it has added moisture, reduced my split ends. Also, usually when I blow dry my hair I normally need to straighten it after or else it looks a bit wild and frizzy but with this oil it has made my hair much more manageable and by adding a little drop to towel dried hair and then using the hairdryer I find my hair is straight, sleek and shiny-without the need to straighten.

This product comes in two sizes….25ml which is £12.85 and 100ml which is £30.  The reason I first tried out the 25ml is because like all new beauty products I was a little apprehensive but this is just about to run out and I am about to order the 100ml (which comes with a pump too).

Order yours now at

They now do the oil exactly the same as this but for fine and light coloured hair too for all you blondes who want to keep your hair from fading as well.

First Post :)

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog Kayleighsbeautyfix.

So....this is my first ever post. I have been wanting to set up my own beauty blog for AGES, never thought I would know how too or have time, but have finally taken the plunge ahh! 

I have created this blog to write and review all different brands of make-up, skincare, hair care and fashion as all these are my passion.  I am beyond obsessed with trying out new products and sharing them with anyone who will listen. I first started following make-up artists and beauty bloggers on twitter especially (@k_leexjx of who have successful blogs and kept thinking "I want to do that" which really inspired me, but didn't have a clue how too! Anyhow...after posting on twitter people have told me how :)

Although I love trying new products all the time I don't think I have a HUGE collection so I will start this blog on the stuff I have at the moment and products I love.  I will post about make-up, skincare, hair and fashion as I have a strong passion for all things beauty and ....I hope you enjoy reading my blog! 

I have a variety of brands with different price ranges and don't think products that cost a fortune are necessarily the best.  I am willing to try new things and share what I think with other #bbloggers.

Hope you will enjoy my reviews, pictures and thoughts!

Much Love

Kayleigh xx
