Also, in case you're interested- I saw The Hunger Games yesterday, and I actually LOVED the film (there are a couple of bits that really annoyed me- mainly where Katniss got her pin from- but on the whole it was very faithful to the books, and it worked really really well on the big screen) and I wouldn't mind seeing it again tonight!
Onto purchases! And for once it's not *just* nail polish!
As soon as I saw Models Own Ibiza Mix I knew I had to own it- it contains such an unusual combination of glitter particle colours- mostly bronze and gold, with a lot of blue and some green lavender too- all in different sizes :) It looks great with just one coat (I think it would look awesome over browns, golds and blues in particular) but the nail wheel swatches below show 3 coats.
I also fell in love with Beauty UK Olympic Bronze when I first saw it on Liloo's blog too, it's not my usual sort of shade (I'm not really a fan of brownish shades) but this is beautiful; it's a deep, reddish bronze foil- very unique and pretty! It was on a 2 for £5 deal in Superdrug (normally £2.99 each), and I picked up another shade for Pryanka in our swap (this ones a surprise for her) And to make it ever better- like the Barry M Foils, this is a one coater!
I spotted another Technic gem in Bodycare too, this is the very appropriately named Mermaid- I'm not sure it's showing through in the pictures, but the glitters appear dark blue, pale blue and green in different lights, it really does give a mermaid tail effect! And for 99p I couldn't refuse. (Note to self, avoid Bodycare for the rest of April!)

And the non-polish item, which I'm very very excited about is my Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter (I HATE that they still spell it the American way, colour has a U!) After careful consideration I picked out Strawberry Shortcake- probably no surprise really, as it's my typical shade; a lovely cool toned pale pink :) So far I love the formula and the shade, though I'm not sure I'll buy any more, £7.99 seems on the pricey side to me. But I'll post a full review soon, when I've used it a little more :)
Have you bought any Revlon lip butters yet?
