Everyone knows that Urban Decay produce some of the best eyeshadows a girl can get her hands on. I think I have at least five palettes and a few singles knocking around my stash. But if you pushed me to pick my second favourite product it would have to be their 24/7 eyeliners. I have quite a stash of these as you can see (bronzey brown Smog is my favourite!) so I was very excited when Urban Decay kindly sent me their new 24/7 waterline eyeliner for review, I did a lot of oohing and ahhing when I opened the package.
I love itty bitty gifts! Similar to the way beauty advent calendars have rocketed in popularity this year we’re also inundated with beauty ornaments, crackers and other christmassy trinkets. I’m a sucker for a Christmas gimmick though so obviously I want them all! So I’ve scoured all the shops and I’ve picked my top beauty stocking fillers from the large bunch.
Christmas is going to be here in just a few weeks, it’s hard to believe. I am drastically under prepared, I have not bought one single present yet, starting to panic! A week or so ago I brought you my gift guide for around the €50 mark here. Today I’ve had more fun with virtual window shopping and am bringing you my gift guide for under €30. Maybe this will actually inspire me to start shopping!
I don’t regularly write favourites posts as sometimes I’m just a creature of habit and sometimes I forget to properly appreciate some of the new products to join my stash. But I had a real bumper month in October, mainly because it was my birthday so I have a few new favourites to add to my collection.
Agghhhhh it’s that time again! I’m so excited, I know loads of people aren’t big on Christmas but I just love it. It’s a real fun, cosy, warm the feet by the fire, family focussed time of year. One big part of course is the gifts! Every year I look forward to seeing everything that’s new in beauty land for Christmas and bringing you my pick of the Christmas beauty gifts. I’ll start at the higher end of the budgets this week and work towards the last minute stocking fillers. Below are my picks of the gifts for €50 or under…
I was very sad when I recently ran out of my beloved Pixi Glow Tonic, it’s not the easiest thing to get your hands on, which is just testament to its brilliance. It’s now available in Marks and Spencer but any time I’ve been in it’s been sold out. I spoke to one of the girls working there and she said the stock is usually gone 30 minutes after they put it out! I was wandering through Boots recently and saw they had these Nip Fab Extreme glycolic pads on offer, so I decided I’d give these a try instead of Glow Tonic for a change.
I’m a bit obsessed with cleansers at the moment, I find I’m drawn to them when I’m out shopping lately but I definitely don’t need any more! It’s getting into colder weather and I’m really relying on cleansers to help keep my skin feeling moisturised and supple. My skin gets very dry and sensitive in the winter months so I need a good cleanser that won’t irritate my skin. Here are some of my top cleanser picks for winter.
