Well it must be at least a few weeks since I’ve mentioned Makeup Revolution, shock horror! I went to Superdrug in Tallaght recently and was delighted to see they had a brand new Makeup Revolution stand, I was far too excited about this and had to try and restrain myself from jumping up and down at it. Unfortunately the popularity of the brand has started to spread and a good few products were sold out but I managed to find a few that piqued my interest.
If you haven’t heard of polish brand Ziaja you are really missing out. They do some great value skincare. The packaging isn’t always the fanciest but the contents inside really deliver what they promise. As we all know micellar waters are the new cleanser du jour. I like to use micellar water as a pre-cleanse before I get at my skin with a balm/oil using water and a flannel.
Last week I shared my recent beauty box purchase from Feel Unique here. The box contained four cult skincare products that I’ve wanted to try out for a while. The one I was looking forward to the most is the Ren Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial. This has been creating a lot of buzz since it launched last year.
A few weeks ago I was invited to a lovely Sleek Makeup event. Sleek is not a new brand here but it’s one that’s growing and expanding and it was great to get the opportunity to play with the makeup and check out all the new releases. I was lucky enought to leave the event with a little goody bag of treats and one of them was this I-Divine Au Naturel Palette. I already own and love the Sleek i-Divine Oh So Special Palette especially the Organza shade which is pretty much all gone, so I was delighted to have another to play with.
I was recently sent this Dove Deeply Nourishing body wash to review. I’ve used Dove deodorant for years, there’s something familiar about the Dove scent to me, it just feels really fresh. I have to admit I don’t put a huge amount of thought into the body wash I use. I usually get loads of that type of thing for Christmas – looking at you Soap and Glory – and I use them up throughout the year. But I was intrigued by the claims of this one so thought I’d give it a whirl.
Well I’ve been trying my best not to spend any money but the weak willed beauty blogger that I am, that plan didn’t last too long. I was browsing Facebook and saw this beauty box pop up on my timeline. Feelunique do a range of beauty boxes that usually offer great value. This Radiant Skin box contains four classic Skincare products that I’ve been excited to try for a while, so of course I caved and swiftly added it to my basket. Here’s what’s in it…
It’s been ages since I’ve written one of these posts but I know I sure do love reading other peoples so I thought I’d show you what’s in my makeup bag today! First up is the bag itself. This is a lovely Penney’s find and I like it for carting around my day to day makeup in my bag as you really can’t miss the neon pink when rummaging. I’d prefer if it was slightly wider but it does the job. Here’s what’s currently inside – links to posts in the title if I’ve done a full review…
Last week I told you all about my favourite peeling face masks that help keep my skin smooth and glowy. I thought I’d continue the theme this week by bringing you my favourite moisturising face masks. I have dry skin so a good moisturising mask is a staple of my skincare routine. Here are my top picks.

Well I have a few beauty missions in my life and one of them is to find a non-uv gel nail polish that lasts more than two days on my nails. I really admire people who can get 4/5 days out of nail polish, I’m lucky if I can escape the day without a chip. I have tried long wearing gel polishes from the likes of CND Vinylux but didn’t get incredibly long wearing results. I had wanted to try the Sally Hansen one but heard mixed reports so I decided not to face disappointment again.
Well I am a bit of a sucker for a trend but as a beauty blogger that’s a dangerous space to be in. You have to be careful not to get suckered into buying every new trend on the block or it’s a surefire way to brokesville. The new cushion foundations really caught my eye though. I remember British Beauty Blogger Jane predicting this would be the next big thing to come from Korea a while back and I’ve been tempted to order one from my fave Korean cosmetics online store. However I was recently in a Kiko store in France and spotted their new cushion foundation and decided to give it a whirl.
