TAG // Colours of the Rainbow with a twist

Hi lovely people!
I've been wanting to do the Colours of the Rainbow Tag for ages - ever since I saw the original one from TalkBeckyTalk! I don't know why I haven't done it yet, but now I feel like doing it! It's a Friday night in for me tonight, I'm at my moms and have New Years Eve playing in the background and have decided to do the tag! But since I'm at my moms it's going to be a What-I-Brought-To-My-Moms-edition - so with a little twist.

So basically I'll be showing you guys my favourite products whether it's beauty or fashion items that fits with the colours of the rainbow. 
RED 
So the first colour in the rainbow is red. I brought this cause it's easy to apply and who doesn't love a red lip? I love these lip tints and this colour is my fave. I usually wear this with a simple eye makeup - maybe with a winked eyeliner! The only thing about these is you can't re-apply them to often otherwise it will crease - at least it does on me. But I love it anyways. 
ORANGE 
So in the orange category I had to show both of these. The first one is my body butter in mango from The Body Shop. I love the smell of this and the moisture it gives. My legs are very dry so this is just perfect for me. The second item is my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. I haven't got a lot so say about this brush other that I LOOOVE IT. It's perfect for buffing in the foundation. 
YELLOW 
This one is an orangy-yellow but I didn't bring any other yellow things. This Vitamin C Energising Spray smells amazing of oranges. It's an instant pick-me-up to refresh dull skin. I use this after I've cleansed my face morning and night. I also spray it on after I've applied my foundation and concealer. 
GREEN
In the green category I have the Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless mascara. I brought this as my only mascara as it works perfectly for an everyday look, it gives length and doesn't clump. I did a review here.
BLUE
I wanted to have some fashion in this tag too. And I adore this blazer from Designers Remix, which is a Danish designer. I love to wear it with a plain T-shirt but also a button up shirt. It fits perfectly and I was lucky enough to find it at a collection-sample-sale. Wup wup! 
INDIGO
So as I said above I only brought one mascara but my mom had purchased this one for herself and she didn't like it. Wupsy it's mine now and I LOVE IT. It gives my lashes a lot of volume and hold the curl really well. It might be more of a night out mascara but I also love it for daytime ;) I wasn't sure if this colour would fit in with indigo but - yeah. 
VIOLET
Purple, lilac and violet shades are my faves. And this nail varnish from Illamasqua has become one of my all time favourites. I love how it applies, the colour the speckles, the shimmer-glimmer and just the overall varnish. I purchased it a couple of weeks ago and did a post on my first ever Illasmqua haul. I don't know with you guys but I ALWAYS bring way o many nail varnishes when I go for visits - wupsy. 
PINK
For pink I obviously had to show a blush. This one is a cream blush from Illamasqua. It give a perfect natural look for my cheeks and it's very buildable. I love the finish a cream blush gives - a dewy natural look. This blush is also from the Illamasqua haul.
The other pink item are some beautiful earring which I bought at a market in China. Cheap and I wear them a lot. Just to pep up an outfit or hairstyle. 

MULTI COLOURED
I actually had a lot of options for multicoloured items. What can I say, I love colours! The first one I chose is a scarf from H&M which I bought a couple of months ago. So you can probably still get it. The colours does not show up as bright as they are in real life. It's an extremely neon coloured scarf which can pep up a boring outfit. The second item is a dress from also from H&M which I brought last year. I just love it and it fits my body really well. I did an outfit of the day a couple of month ago wearing this dress if you want to see it on. 

This was my colours of the rainbow tag with a twist. 

I wanted to tag some bloggers to do it as well. What can I say, I'm a nosey person ;) The bloggers:

Hayley from Beauty Rambles
Charlie from Eat Play Shop Love
Hollie from Eating Lipstick
Ellie from Eillies Ramblings
Becky from Lipgloss and lashes
Molly from What Molly Love
Sophia from Sophia Meola 
Andrea from Rosy Chicc
