May Favourites

Hi lovelies, I hope you're all well? 
I'm never really sure how to start my monthly favourites posts so I'm just going to dive right in and share the products I've been loving throughout the month of May.
First up is Primark false nails. I've lost count of how many packs of these I've got through in the past year, they can be a little bit hit and miss (mainly due to the nail glue) but I love them. They're available in a wide range of colours and designs so if you're a fan of false nails they should be something to suit you. I have reviewed Primark's false nails in full here.

 I don't usually tend to use fake-tan very often, but I recently bought a foundation that's a teeny bit too dark for my natural skin colour so I've introduced Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan in 'Dark' into my regular routine. I'm thinking of doing a full review on this product soon so I won't ramble, but I will say that it's very easy to use and it leaves my skin with a lovely natural glow. My full review can be found here.

What I'm Currently Listening To

Recently Roxie at The Beautiful Bluebird shared her May Spotify Playlist on her blog (link here) and given that I'm a little bit nosey it was a post I really enjoyed. My music taste varies widely from the likes of The Pretty Reckless to the Frozen Soundtrack (playing my music on shuffle can be very amusing sometimes!) Anyway.. I thought it might be good to share my current Spotify Playlist with you.

 It's not very often that I'll find 'newer' songs that I love as much as older songs, but that said I haven't been able to stop listening to:
Hozier - Someone New
Florence + The Machine - Ship To Wreck
James Bay - Let It Go (no it's not the Frozen song,haha)
Kygo ft Conrad Sewell - Firestone 
Fall Out Boy - Centuries

The next part of my playlist includes some songs/artists that I've not listened to for a very long time, but they're very welcome rediscoveries:

Review: Bourjois Volume Clubbing Ultra Black Mascara

On a recent trip to Boots I found myself at the Bourjois stand. I have to admit that I've never tried anything from Bourjois before (I know,I know.. bad blogger) but there's currently a 2 products for £14 offer on so I picked up the Bourjois Volume Clubbing Ultra Black Mascara and Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation (review coming soon). 

When choosing a new mascara I like to go for one that's going to give my eyelashes some volume. The Bourjois Volume Clubbing Ultra Black Mascara provides my lashes with volume but also adds length too. The mascara itself is very dark and pigmented - perfect for a night out or those days when I want to go for a slightly more dramatic eye look.

Natashaparisblog Turns One!

I started natashaparisblog back in May 2014, and at this date last year I published my first ever blog post (titled 'My First Blog Post'... how original ;))

When I started my blog I thought it would be something that I got fed up of doing after a couple of months. However, here I am a year later. Yes blogging can be hard, I sometimes struggle to think of new content and there's always the worry of whether people are actually going to read the posts that have taken me a whole afternoon to write up. But (ooh I just started a sentence with 'but' if my English teacher could see me now ;)) when I see that people are actually reading my posts or when people leave a little comment then all the time and effort I put into my blog suddenly seems worth it.

So I just want to say a huge thank you to you, the lovely readers of natashaparisblog. Thank you for taking time out of your lives to read my rambles, thank you for following, thank you for leaving lovely comments and thank you for reading.

Review: Rimmel Provocalips Lip Colour In 'Kiss Me You Fool'

I'm definitely a lipstick kinda girl so I was drawn towards Rimmel Provocalips Lip Colours as they claim to deliver 16 hours of endless colour. Rimmel also claims that this product is 'kiss-proof, food-proof and transfer-proof' - with such bold claims I was intrigued to see if the product lived up to expectations. 

Rimmel Provocalips 'Kiss Me You Fool'7
 There are currently around 8 shades to choose from in the Provocalips range, the shade I went for was 'Kiss Me You Fool' - which is quite a vibrant red shade.

April Favourites

Hi lovelies, it's monthly favourites time again so here are the products that I loved throughout April.

April favourites

First up is MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in 'Soft and Gentle' which actually featured in my last monthly favourites post too. I only purchased this a couple of months a go but it's become a staple in my make-up routine. It's a very pretty shade that I sweep across my cheekbones (alongside my bronzer) to give my make-up a bit of 'pizazz'.
