Hi peeps Happy Sunday, hope you’re having a nice relaxing day! In this weekly post I’ll give you a quick run through of what I’ve been writing about, other blog posts I’ve enjoyed and any beauty bits I’ve bought!
What I’ve been writing about this week…
Well my brows are a little unruly and I heard friends rave about the Benefit Gimme Brow but I think it’s just a little too pricey. When I saw this similar product Brow This Way from Rimmel I knew I had to try it out. It does a great job but my only gripe is that the wand needs to be about half the size.
I’ve seen such great reviews of Ziaja Skincare that I knew I had to give the Sensitive range a try. I trialled the Sensitive Face and Body Cleanser which I think is a great dupe for the Cetaphil cleanser. I also tried the Enzyme Peeling Mask which is a very close contender for my favourite Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel. You can read my full review here.
Blog posts I’ve loved this week…
If you’re not familiar with the Irish company Nima Brush you should be! It’s a great range of brushes lovingly developed by owner Niamh Martin. Niamh is just about to release a brand new collection of beautiful brushes called The Artistic Collection. Lisa at Pink Sugar attended the launch of the collection this week and wrote a lovely post capturing the hard work Niamh has put into her beautiful new range.
I love having a snoop at what’s in other peoples makeup bags and this week Danielle over at LilliWhiteRose showed us what she brings in her travel makeup bag. I loved her picks and definitely agree on the Wet n Wild palette and the Rimmel concealer. I really want to try one of the MAC pro longwear blushes.
Makeup Monster herself wrote a great post about the current products she’s trialling. I can’t wait to hear how she’s getting on with the Neoastrata Pigment Controller as I’m constantly looking for a new product to tackle my pigmentation. I can second the love for the La Roche Posay Hydraphase Masque, it’s a great skin saviour!
What I didn’t buy this week…
I was very good and bought nothing this week, whoop! But it’s just a temporary break as I’m saving my money for the Pro Beauty Show which is happening on the 5th and 6th October in the RDS. I have no doubt I will be picking up a few bits at that!
Well that was another blogging and beauty week! Hope you had a good one xx
