Haul from today!

Just some little bits from today, I actually intended to get a lot more but Wolverhampton doesn't have the best choice in their drug stores! 
Left-Right TRESemmé Spilt Remedy Conditioner, MUA Undressed Palette, TRESemmé Texture Style Divine Definition Spray, MUA Nail Varnish in Natural Days, TRESemmé Spilt Remedy Spilt Mend and Protect Leave-In Conditioner and Barry M Nail Varnish in Ruby Glitter.
I'll do proper reviews when I've had the chance to try them out (:

TRESemmé claim that after only 3 uses of the Spilt Remedy collection, reduces spilt ends up to 80%. Now I recommend using the shampoo and the conditioner together, but it really does work, my hair is looking a lot more healthy since I've been using it. 
I got the conditioner for £4.99 from Boots, who have a 2 for £5 offer on all of TRESemmé shampoo, conditioner and intensives! I decided to get the Spilt Remedy Leave-In Conditioner instead of the shampoo because I have tons of it! I'm definitely looking forward to using it, I've got a thing for leave in's! 
My other TRESemmé buy is from the new Texture Style collection, which I'll probably end up buying all of because I'm a massive fan of products like this. I decided to go with the Divine Definition one because my hair really needs a lift, so I'm hoping it will help and I'll be reviewing this as soon as I can :) Also in the new collection is Backcomb Dust, Tousled Wave Spray and a Velvet Créme. I bought this for £5.50. 

I've been wanting the MUA 'Undressed' Palette for ages but I've been waiting for my skin to clear up before I bought it, my eyes are especially bad. However, the time has come to finally buy it and even in the palette the shades look amazing so I can't wait to try. I got this for £4 from Superdrug. 
I also got one of the new MUA nail colours in 'Natural Days' which is a very pale pink colour which will go perfectly with their new 'Fur Effects' in Fluffly Puff (which is why I bought it). Cheap as chips at £1. 

And finally, Barry M Jewel Glitter Paint in 'Ruby Glitter' which I'll review now as I've already tried it! 

I love sparkly nail varnishes, I have so many so I probably shouldn't be buying more but I couldn't resist. I apologise now for the rubbish lighting in these photos but it gets dark really early now so I just had to make do! From the bottle this looks like a black based varnish with flecks of pink glitter but I advise you to look closely at colours like this because they won't turn out like what you expect them to. 
Upon closer inspection, this is a clear varnish with large hexagonal hot pink, burgandy and black glitter particles and very, very fine black flecks. 
I only applied one coat of this to my nails so you can see what it's like by itself but I do recommend, either, layering it or applying it over a different base colour. I should also advise you to not touch a thing whilst you're waiting for this to dry, a lot of it comes out and I had to be careful that it didn't dribble onto my fingers. However, it only took 5 minutes for it to dry completely.

For £2.99, I definitely think this is a lovely varnish and I imagine it would look stunning if you had the time to sit there and layer it up. However, it's one of these that look far superior in the bottle than it does on your nails.
