Currently on my nails: Kiko Famingo Pink

Today I thought I would share with you the nail polish I am currently wearing, Kiko Flamingo Pink (number 288). I ordered this shade after watching Barbara from ThePersianBabe's recent YouTube video. She was wearing the most gorgeous pink nail polish. It looked so pretty that I had to have it.

Despite owning several bright pink polishes, I have nothing quite like this pink. It is a bright, blue toned pink which I think would be so flattering with any skin tone. Sometimes pinks can be hard to get right but this colour stands out for all the right reasons.

I ordered this polish online from Kiko along with some other bits and pieces as we don't have a Kiko here in Scotland. The polish itself is really inexpensive at only £3.90 and the formula was really nice an opaque, taking only two coats to get the perfect finish.

I started with a coat of my beloved OPI Nail Envy and finished with a coat of Sally Hansen's Mega Shine Top Coat, which gives a sipper shiny finish.

Kiko have tonnes of other colours which I would love to try but since I can't see them in person I may have to resort to googling for swatches. They even sell the cutest little nail polish carry bag for travelling with. I love! 

If you are looking for a bright and flattering pink nail polish for spring/summer then definitely check out Kiko Flamingo Pink.

Pretty In Pink- Sleek Makeup

I should be banned from leaving my office at lunch time because every time I do go out I home back with a handful of new products and much less money! On a recent lunch time shopping trip I popped in to Superdrug and came out with two new Sleek products.

I am a huge fan of Sleek as I think the quality and pigmentation of their products are fantastic and at such a reasonable price.

I only had one blush from Sleek, Pixie Pink which is a matte bright pink. I spotted the Blush by 3 palettes which contain three blushers, two powder and one cream formula. The Pink Lemonade palette really caught my eye. I am a girly girl so the array of sweet pinks appealed to me greatly, so much so I had to have it.

It contains a baby pink powder, a rosy cream and a rose gold powder. Sleek do a blush called Rose Gold which have wanted for a while and on first glance I thought the blush on the far right was Rose Gold. It turns out it isn't but it is very similar.

The two powder shades are so highly pigmented and contain a finely milled shimmer which gives a beautiful glow to the cheeks meaning you don't even need to apply a highlighter. It isn't glittery at all, it is more of a sheen than anything.

The cream blush is again really pigmented, completely matte and blends out really nicely to leave almost a stained finish. I love all three colours and to me the darker pink powder is very reminiscent of Nars Orgasm blush and the lighter pink of MAC's Dainty Mineralized Blush.

This is a really handy compact palette with a great mirror. At only £9.99 I would say this was such a bargain.

The other product I bought was the Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream in Petal. This is a matte finish liquid lipstick. I thought the colour of this one was so pretty and wearable. This lip product is very similar to the NYX Matte Lip Creams which I love. I am a huge fan of a matte lip and Petal just glides on to the lips leaving a very velvety soft finish.

This is perfect is the perfect everyday pink and I have been loving wearing it to work or on days where I don't want full on make up. Again this product is only £4.99 which I think is a great price. There is also some seriously gorgeous brighter shades which would look equally as amazing.

If you spent over £10 on Sleek products then you received a cute little black Sleek make up bag which was nice. I love having little zip pouches for travelling or carrying in my handbag. 

These pretty pink products definitely are very spring appropriate I think and no doubt I will be wearing them lots. I might have to do a face of the day soon to show you the products in use :)

Spring Scents

Now that spring is officially here it's time to change up my skincare, make up and perfumes. I'm leaving my heavy sultry perfumes of winter behind and have purchases so new fresh girly ones which are perfect for spring time. 

The first scent I want to talk about is Vera Wang Princess. This has long been one of my favourite perfumes simply because it is the epitome of the type of scents that I like. Sweet, fruity and girly. I love that one spritz of perfume can bring back so many memories and feelings and for me, Vera Wang Princess, brings back lots of happy ones. This contains pink guava as well as a mixture of waterlily, apple, mandarin meringue, and golden apricot skin, dark chocolate, amber, musk, and vanilla. 

I just love the heart shaped bottle and soft lilac colour of this perfume. As I ran out of this perfume around this time last year my mum and dad were kind enough to bring me home a bottle of this from their recent holiday.

The next scent I added to my spring collection is a newbie for me. I am a creature of habit when it comes to fragrance and usually stick to the same four or five perfumes that I have loved forever. Whilst browsing the beauty section of John Lewis on my lunch break I happened to smell Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh and was really drawn to it. It was different from the usual fragrances I go for in that it was a lot cleaner and fresher. 

A week or so later I decided to order the purse spray & refill set from Escentuals. This little set was the perfect size to let me try it out and it was a great prices as well at just over £25. I adore miniature products, I think they are just too cute so when this Marc Jacobs set arrived I so in love. The little bottle was gorgeous with the big daisy, the perfect size for my hand bag yet you still get a decent amount of perfume (25ml). It also came with a 15ml refill and the most adorable gold funnel to help you decant it.

I don't like the original Marc Jacobs Daisy but Eau So Fresh I do like. It is very clean and fresh smelling with a hint of fruitiness/sweetness. In a way it reminds me of a cross between parma violet & refresher sweeties. This scent contains wild rose, apple blossom, violet, raspberry, grapefruit, pear, plum, cedar wood and musk. This as become a staple in my handbag.

The final scent I thought I would mention is a surprising one. It is a scent from NSpa which is a brand exclusive to Asda. The NSpa Orient Fragrance is the perfect night time spring scent. It contains lily, vanilla, musk and mandarin which creates a lovely sweet and subtly sexy fragrance. The warmth from the vanilla makes it ideal for night time yet the floral and fruity notes keep it fresh for spring. The packaging is very Jo Malone and at only £8 you can't go wrong with this scent. 

I think it would be great for taking keeping in a handbag as you wouldn't be too worried about loosing it as it is so inexpensive. It also means you could top up your scent throughout the day without worry about using up really expensive perfumes. The Orient perfume would also be great to layer with.

Now that I have my spring scents in check, time to move on to my make up. I'm excited to start wearing some pretty spring/summer colours so look out for some new spring make up posts coming up.

What is your go to spring scent? I would love to hear all your recommendations!

Pink to Make the Boys Wink: Kate Spade Accessories

So a week of being at home struck down with the flu, feeling terrible and sorry for myself could only culminate in one thing....a lot of online shopping. Aching, coughing, shivering, spluttering and sneezing had left me feeling awful. Having not worn any make up or clothing other than my jammies all week, I knew a make up or clothing haul just wasn't going to cut it; there was only one thing for it...accessories.

Whilst perusing Shopbop I decided to check out the Kate Spade products. I love Kate Spade as a brand but here in the UK it is much harder to get hold off. One click and I was transported out of my sick bed into accessory heaven! So many pretty things!

As I'm sure many of us do, I made my little imaginary shopping bag, all click happy, but once I got to the check out I thought twice. This happened for a few days in a row until I had a weak moment (I'm blaming all the flu medicine, personally!) and actually went through with it. Oops.

Here is what I got....

Shopbop has some amazing iPhone cases and Kate Spade knows how to do a damn good one. I was torn between this Kate Spade Floral iPhone 5 Case or a Dita Von Frustenberg one but in the end the bright, pretty colours of this one won. I love the colours, the acrylic finish and the the gold foil Kate Spade detail at the bottom. You can feel that it is a higher quality than most other phone cases and on the inside it says 'Live Colorfully' which I think is a nice touch. I'm obsessed with it! 

The next item was a bit of a splurge. I ordered the Kate Spade Gramercy Bracelet Watch in Bougainvillea Pink. I entirely blame Makeup by Tiffany D for the purchase. I remember watching her Christmas video where she talked about her Kate Spade watch with the bright pink face (it's a slightly different model) and I feel in love with it. The way she explained why she loved it just made me want it in my life. When I saw this one on Shopbop I decided to get it. I love the bright pink and gold together and think this would be really pretty with a simple black dress or jeans and simple top. It is also a good size, not too small but not to big and chunky. 
Plus it was significantly cheaper than buying Kate Spade watches here in the UK!

Finally I got the Kate Spade Small Square Stud Earrings in Flo Pink. You can kind of tell I was on a pink kick, can't you?! Of course I simply got these because I thought they would look so cute with the watch! The bright fluroscent pink looks really pretty with the gold casing and I think these would look amazing with a tan. They are slightly larger than normal studs which makes them perfect for nights out as they are more eye catching. 

I honestly cannot fault Shopbop at all and in fact I was extremely impressed with the service they offer. I placed my order on Tuesday and it arrives two days later on Thursday, all the way from the US to Scotland, that is impressive! Items I order from here don't even come that fast. The shipping is free and I opted for the prices to include any potential duties and customs charges so I didn't need to pay anything extra when they arrived at my door. Thank you Shopbop! 

I'm a little bit in love with my new Kate Spade accessories and now I want everything from her collection. She has such fun, vibrant and girly products. These bright pinks are perfect for spring and summer and definitely helped cheer me up from feeling so unwell!

ps. the little pouch/purse in the picture if from Accessorize. Cute, isn't it?!

Too Faced La Creme Colour Drenching Lip Cream in Juicy Melons

Hey everyone!

So I'm back today with a lip product review. In my last Collective Haul I spoke about the Too Face La Creme Colour Drenching Lip Cream in Marshmallow Bunny. At the time I was undecided on whether to get the one or Juicy Melons. Having gone for Marshmallow Bunny last time I decided to go ahead and get Juicy Melons as it had been on my mind ever since and that's when I know I really like something.

Juicy Melons is a beautiful coral colour. I love corals for spring and summer time. I adore the formula of these lip creams. They are described as having "rich creamy colour, drenched with powerful lip conditioners".  This description couldn't be any more spot on. They are so soft and creamy that they glide on the lips perfectly. The formula is very moisturising and leaves your lips feeling smooth and nourished.

Juicy Melons is very pigmented and the creamy formula leaves a pretty sheen to the lips. The formula is similar if not creamier then the Tom Ford Lipsticks and feels just as luxurious.

As with all Too Faced products the packaging is so pretty and the lipstick bullet itself is a sleek and brushed gold.  Definitely one you wouldn't mind whipping out your bag for touch ups!

At £18 these lipsticks aren't cheap however I think the quality is comparable to higher end brands such as Chanel, YSL and Tom Ford.  I have been loving wearing this colour with a soft neutral eye. I have a powder blue blouse which looks amazing paired with this lip colour as well.

What lip colours having you been loving coming in to Spring?

Sephora UK Delivery

Last week I watched one of Vivianna Does Makeup's YouTube videos. It was a Sephora Haul and when she mentioned that Sephora now deliver to the UK I nearly fell off my seat. Yes, I may be a later comer to this news but as soon as she enlightened me I just had to pause her video and go online shopping! I love Sephora, it is the beauty mecca and as we don't have one here in Scotland, let alone the UK, I always visit one when I can abroad. Well, within 10 minutes of finding out this news I had placed my Sephora order and was beyond excited to received it. Here is what I got...

First on my list was the Glam Glow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment. Ever since hearing the American girls rave about this months ago I have been dying to try this face mask but it is unfortunately not yet out here in the UK. I have the Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment which I love so am so excited to try this hydrating mask. Although I don't have dry skin, it can get dehydrated (there is a difference!) often. You better believe I will be chillaxing with this on tonight. I will let you know how I find it! 

Secondly I stocked up on my Holy Grail foundation, the Make Up For Ever HD Foundation. I first tried this out last summer and it was hands down the best foundation I had ever tried, knocking my previous favourite, Armani Luminous Silk, off the top spot. You can read my full review here. I got the shade 125 which is perfect for my colouring. I am currently using L'Oreal True Match foundation, which I like so I will use that first then crack this bad boy open.

I also decided to get the new Clinique Cheek Pop in Berry Pop. I know these are literally just out here in the UK but I couldn't wait for them to hit store this Friday and went ahead and order one. There blushes are so adorable with an embossed flower design. They are bright pops of colour and have a gorgeous satin finish to them rather than being matte or glittery. I couldn't decided between Berry Pop and Plum Pop but decided on Berry Pop after hearing LisaLisaD1 talk about how pretty it was in one of her YouTube videos. Only from swatching this blush I can say that it is pigmented but not overly so therefore you can build it up as required. I'm sure this will be one of my summer beauty staples.

Finally I ordered the Tarte Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush. I recently purchased the Laura Mercier Mineral Powder and needed a really good buffing brush to use it will. This brush is perfect as it is so densely packed. This brush was designed to be used with the Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation Powder, which I would also like to try out. I will give this a go tomorrow and see how it works out. It feels incrediably soft on the skin from first impressions.

I signed up for the Sephora Beauty Insider which is a loyalty scheme which awards points for every dollar that you spend. You then get to choose a free gift with your points. I chose a mini Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara which is a handy size my handbag. I also got to choose 3 further samples.

If you spend over £75 then there is a flat shipping rate of £10 which includes all delivery and customs charges. I placed my order last Wednesday and it arrived today so that was exactly a week which isn't too bad coming from the US. I was also able to track it all the way here which was handy. Overall I was really impressed with the Sephora UK delivery service and would definitely shop online again, however perfumes and some other brands cannot be shipped to the UK, I found this out when I tried to order some Jose Maran products.

I think my make up addiction is about to get a whole lot worse thanks to Sephora!

What would be on your Sephora shopping list?

Current Haircare

As promised I'm back with a hair care post. Last month I got my hair cut and as with every time I visit the hairdressers it has revived my interest in hair care. I alway promise myself that after having my hair cut I will look after it and keep it in great condition then I rush out an buy a handful of new hair products to help me maintain my mane. 

I thought I would share with you some of the products that I have been using to keep my hair feeling and looking healthy. 

I have oily roots and dry ends which makes it really hard find products that nourish my hair without leaving it weighed down and greasy. I also have a lot of hair but it is very fine so volume is a really issue for me.

A product that I have won't to try since reading about it in Seventeen Magazine when I was 16 was Mane N Tail Shampoo. This is the shampoo made for horses which was made famous by Jennifer Aniston. Let's face it Jennifer Aniston probably has the most perfect hair in the world so any product she uses of course I'm gonna want to try!

My lovely friend bought me the shampoo and conditioner to try and I was so excited to use it. This was originally used as a horse shampoo but can also be used by humans (some people might be freaked out by this!). It is claimed as giving soft shiny hair and also helping to encourage hair growth.  This has a lovely fresh sent to it and I must admit that after using it my hair feels really soft and nourished. I have only been using it for a couple of weeks so I will keep you posted on whether it helps my hair grow faster.

I have also been using L'Oreal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Shampoo. I spoke about this in my recent collective haul post. This shampoo works by expanding the diameter of the hair giving it a fuller, thicker appearance. I really like this shampoo and it does make my hair feel thicker especially after blow drying it. I have been switching my shampoo between each of theses each time I was my hair.

Now moving on to dry shampoo. As every girls with oily hair will tell you, dry shampoo is a life saver. This month I have been loving the Batiste Dry Shampoo Dark & Deep Brown. This dry shampoo contains a hint of colour which is great because normal dry shampoos can leave a white cast on my dark hair. I don't think I have found a better dry shampoo than Batiste however I have heard that the one from Dove is supposed to be good so I may just have to try that. I use this on days in between washes. It also helps to had a bit of volume to my hair.

Moving on to products that help condition and protect my hair, the more interesting products some may say! I recently bought the Charles Worthington Salon at Home Intense Rescue Melting Balm. This is a pre shower product. It is basically a solid balm which you scoop out a small amount rub between your hands, turning it to an oil and then you apply this to dry hair, leave it for 20 mins and then wash out and shower as normal. It helps to add moisture back to the hair, smooth and repairs split ends and add shine. A little of this goes a long way! As I have oily roots I only apply this from my mid lengths to my ends. After using this hair treatment my hair feels so soft and healthy. I have been using this once a week for an extra boost of nourishment.

My everyday conditioner has been the Mane N Tail Conditioner. This conditioner to match the shampoo smells equally fresh. It is a thick conditioner which I like and again I only apply this from my mid lengths down. This makes my hair feels so smooth and soft and I have noticed that my ends look much healthier.

A new product to my hair care collection is the It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In Product. I have heard so many beauty gurus talk about this hair product, especially the American girls. I finally decided to buy it (from Sally's). This product is a 10 in 1 leave in product which claims to 1) repair dry damaged hair 2) add shine 3) detangles 4) control frizz 5) seal & protect hair colour 6) stop hair breakage 7) prevent split ends 8) create silkiness 9) enhance natural body and 10) act as a thermal protector.....phewwww! That is a long list but sounds good, right? I was surprised at how thick this lotion is and was surpassed that it act managed to spray. I sprayed this in my damp hair and blow dried and styled it as normal. This really works, my hair felt amazing after using this. So soft, shiny and just manageable. 

Finally when I only use shampoo and conditioner I like to apply a small amount of the Phil Smith Argan Oil Hair Transforming Cream. As the name suggests it contains argan oil. This just adds moisture to my ends and helps protect them from heat styling. It also smells amazing and doesn't weigh down or leave my hair greasy.

These are the products that I have been using and loving to keep my hair in shape. I'm pretty happy with my hair care routine at the moment and think I will be sticking with it for a while. It's all about the soft, shiny, nourished hair :)

What products have you been loving for your hair?

Bahama Breeze Yankee Candle

Hi everyone! I just wanted to get a quick post up today as I'm aware I haven't posted anything for over a week!

At the weekend I picked up a new candle for my room. I love candles and always like to have them dotted about my room. My two favourite brands are Lily Flame and Yankee Candles. The hard part is choosing a scent because there are so many lovely scents to choose from. After sniffing half the shop I settled on Bahama Breeze from Yankee Candle. I think this is a fairly new scent and is currently sold out online. 

This smells so yummy! It is a tropical blend of pineapple, grapefruit and mango but to me it just smells like a fruity cocktail :)

I have it burning right now and it certainly brightens up a damp miserable night like tonight. I got the medium jar which was £16.99 but it comes in all sizes from the sampler size right up to the large jars. With Yankee Candles I always feel that the larger candles give off more of a scent than the smaller ones which you can't really smell much once burning.

I also had my eye, or should I say nose, on the Lime Vanilla scent which was fresh but sweet at the same time. Maybe I will add that one to my birthday wish list.

I will be back with a care hair post later on this week :) I hope everyone is having a good week!

Collective Haul

Hey guys, so today I'm back with a collective haul. I haven't done one in a while and,well,  I have purchased a few things over the last few weeks that I thought I would share with you all and give you my first impressions on.

As I have a serious issue with finishing foundations (last time I counted I had 17 unfinished foundations :O), in my usual style I got fed up with my YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation and decided to true out a cheaper drug store one as it had been a while. I had heard really good things about the L'Oreal True Match foundation, even that it could be classed as a dupe for the Armani Luminous Silk foundation. 

I picked up the shade Rose Beige which is a really good colour match for my skin. They have tonnes of colours to choose from. The coverage is medium and I like the finish that it gives (subtle dewiness). I think this is a great drugstore foundation I just wish it lasted a but longer as by the time I get home from work it looks a bit worse for wear.

Along with the foundation I bought this concealer. They only seemed to have one shade available in the boots that I went to (Natural Beige), however I'm sure they will do others. This is possibly a tiny bit too dark for me to be highlighting, but it, surprisingly has really good coverage therefore I have been using it to conceal blemishes as well.

This tiny little bottle contains a lotion which is aromatherapy based and can be used to relieve stress, tension and headaches. It has a strong peppermint scent to it. You pump a little bit on to your finger tips and rub it on your temples, earlobes and the back of your neck. This products sort of works like Forehead, in that it feels cool on the skin and sort of tingly. This really helps to relieve tension and helps get rid of any sore heads. This has been great for keeping in my handbag incase I get a sore head whilst at work.

I ordered this moisturiser after loving the Ginzing Eye Cream so much. As this is a gel based moisturiser and is energy boosting, it makes it perfect to use in the mornings before applying your make up. I found if I use this then my make up doesn't just slide off like it does when I use other creamy moisturisers. This has a nice citrus scent as well which is nice for the AM.

Winter has left me feeling a bit pale and pasty and there is nothing better to boost your confidence than a nice golden glow. I have previous raved about the Montana 1 Hour Tanning Lotion so I thought I would repurchase it. As it is quite hard to find, when I spotted the mousse version in Boots I grabbed it and I love it just as much. The mousse is best applied with a tanning mitt instead of gloves as it glides on perfectly. Leave on for 1 hour for a light tan, 2-3 hours for a medium tan or 4 hours for a dark tan. The colour this gives is beautiful and long lasting.

I had my eye on this product for ages and finally gave in and bought it. This is a unique product in that it is a solid balm. You scoop a little out and rub it between your hands to turn it in to an oil which you then apply to dry hair (I only use it on my mid lengths and ends). You simply leave it on for 20 mins then wash it off before shampooing and conditioning your hair as normal. It is supposed to leave your hair soft, nourished and help split ends. I have only used this once so can't really comment yet but I will keep you updated!

I recently had my hair cut and have decided it's time that I dedicate some time and effort in to my hair as it has been rather neglected. I picked up this L'Oreal shampoo which helps strength and revisits your hair and it doesn't contain any nasty sulphates. This has a really nice minty scent, which I like and still lathers up really nice for not containing sulphates. I haven't used this for long enough yet to see any difference in my hair.

I am a huge Too Faced fan and was really drawn to this product. It is a translucent powder which sets make up and gives your skin that candlelight glow. Come on now, what girl wouldn't want to have that candlelight glow that makes her look flawless! This powder does contain some subtle shimmer so if you do not love shimmer on your face then this is not the product for you. I have been using it in place of my usual Armani setting powder and it does give a really nice soft focus glow to the skin. If you are really oily then I would avoid this product.

As you may have gathered I have been on a bit of a hair care splurge. I bought yet another shampoo, this time to add volume to my hair. These are new out from L'Oreal. I heard the gorgeous Nicole Guerriero talk about this so of course I had to try it out. It did a really great job of thickening my hair, it instantly felt bigger and thicker however like most volume shampoos they can leave your hair a bit dry and lacking in shine. Look out for an up and coming hair care post with the perfect duo for shiny healthy hair! 

Having finished my L'Oreal Lash Architect mascara I needed something to replace it. A trip to Boots later and I came home with a shiny new Clinique one. I am a fan of the original High Impact Mascara so this Extreme version sounded good. It has a big chunky wand and gives my lashes lots of volume and thickness. I have been wearing this everyday and love the way it makes my lashes look super thick and black. A few coats of mascara and a bright lip has been worn time and time again this month.

I have been swithering about buying the Anastasia Brow Whiz for a while now but just haven't got round to ordering one. When I saw this Brow Stylist from Sleek make up I thought it looked like a pretty good dupe for the Brown Whiz. It has a spoolie at one end to comb the brows in to shade and an angled brow crayon on the other end. I got mine in Medium as although my brows are dark sometimes dark brow products can look to harsh. This is average at best which is disappointing for Sleep make up as usually they are on form. I find the product quite dry and hard to apply. I think I will cave and get the Brow Whiz. Perfect brows, I'm coming for ya!

After seeing swatches of these lipstick online I was dying to try them out. One lunch break I headed to Boots with this product in mind. All the colours looked so pretty and I couldn't decide between the one I got and a pretty reddish coral called Juciy Melons. In the end I went for the sweet pink Marhsmallow Bunny. This one has some shimmer in it which some people might not like. It is a girly pink which at first I wasn't sure of but one Saturday I paired it with super fresh simple make up and I loved the effect (see below). This is sheer yet build able and is very hydrating on the lips. I want more now, just my luck!

Sorry for the super long post!
 Look out for some hair care posts coming soon :)

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

5 Products....For Big Hair

Today I have another post in my '5 Products' series. I personally love big hair. Think Lilly Ghalichi big! But unfortunately my hair is rather fine and lacking in volume therefore I definitely need the help of some great products if I want big hair. Here are my five must have products which help to give my hair that much needed va va boom....

This is a recent purchase of mine, however I saw results from using it only once. This shampoo thickens the hair by expanding and increasing the diameter of each hair. Thick, full hair is the foundation of any big hair look. After washing and blow drying my hair having used this my hair looked and felt visibly thicker. Impressive!

This spray from John Frieda is perfect if you need to give your hair that extra oomph. You spritz this on your roots before blow drying and it creates volume and hold at the roots and crown giving you bigger hair. I love using this spray then blow drying my hair upside down to really get as much height at my roots as possible.

Velcro rollers are amazing for getting big bouncy hair. My favourites are the 70 mm red velcro rollers from Sally's/Salon Services. The 70 mm ones are the largest and are really inexpensive. I position these at my roots and crown after blow drying my hair, securing them in place with kirby grips. I leave my hair to set for around 30 mins to and hour. When I unravel them I am left with more voluminous hair as well as a pretty curled finish. 

I bought this as alternative to the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray as it was a fraction of the cost. Let me tell you this little can really packs a punch. You can spray this at your roots or all over and it instantly doubles your hair in size. The volume this gives is amazing without leaving it gritty or crunchy like many other volumising products. I like to curl my hair, turn my head upside down and spray some of this all over. When I flip my hair back over is instantly bigger.

This brush might originally be for detangling knotted hair however I love to use mine to back comb my hair. I need to back comb in order to get the extra volume that I like. The tangle teezer makes the back combing process a breeze, adding tonnes of height. I also feel that the back combing stay put for longer than when I use a fine tooth comb. An added bonus is that is also helps detangle and get all the back combing out of your hair as well!

So there is a round up for my five products for big hair. If like me, you love big hair then definitely give some of these products a try. If anyone has any tips or trick on how they add volume to their hair then leave me a comment down below :)
