Welcome to the Sunday Catchup! Here 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…
I was seriously impressed with the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer. It really brightens up the eye are and covers dark circles. I also found it soothing and moisturising. It’s a real winner in my book!
Sleek have introduced a new range of Love Gel Nails polishes. I picked the Revolver shade as I think it’s a nice neutral shade for Autumn. The polish isn’t massively shiny but it lasts really well.
Last but not least I wrote about the brilliance of the Real Techniques Retractable Kabuki brush! This brush is a great addition to any handbag. You can use it to apply powder, bronzer and highlighter and it’s kept nice and hygienic.
Blog posts I’ve loved this week…
Andreea over at Your Beauty wrote a great post about her favourite photo editing apps. I’m trying to improve my photography on the blog so I will definitely be checking some of them out. At the moment I just use Picasa to do some basic cropping, I need to up my game!
Like many beauty bloggers I love Temptalia for really detailed and high quality swatches of products. Christine posted the new Rihanna Viva Glam Swatches on Friday, the browny coloured lipstick and lipgloss really don’t appeal to me, even Christine herself looks a little unsure! She also posted about the MAC Rocky Horror Show collection which everyone is very excited about!
What I bought this week…
Well I didn’t buy any products as such but I did buy a beauty experience! I treated myself to a spa day in the Espa spa in the Powerscourt Hotel (previously owned by the Ritz Carlton). I reviewed this spa here last year and I’m happy to say that the standard hasn’t changed one bit. I had a blissful aromatherapy massage, facial and lunch all for the bargain price of €120 – this is their great value September Slumber package which I highly recommend. The spa is so relaxing and has beautiful views of the Sugarloaf Mountain from the relaxation area and ladies thermal suite.
So that was another beauty and blogging week, hope you enjoyed yours xx
