I think it’s probably safe to say that most nail techs have those clients who only ever go for nude nails. Am I right?! I love a good nude nail myself but at times they can get boring. Well until now. Introducing the Nude Collection from The Manicure Company. I am totally late to the party on this one but I thought I would review it for you anyway. After all, this collection is going nowhere and for me it is a great addition (for any season) to your nail kit. So let’s look at the colours. The collection consists of six nude(ish) tones, some are leaning more on the pink side while others are perfect for the beigey nude lovers. You can buy the gelpolishes separately for €9.95 each (8ml bottles) or the collection of six will set you back €55. Glowing gel is quiet a unique shade. This is one of those shades that allows your own natural nail to show through . It’s great for those who just want a more perfected version of their own nails but with a high shine. Or this is a lovely combination for using with a french manicure. I also love […]

Where do I even start? Isn’t she a total babe?!! Let’s just say the BPerfect and LMD Master collab is 100% me, in a palette. It screamed my name from the minute I seen it and I have to say, she didn’t disappoint. Let’s get into it, sorry about the rambles so far. So, what exactly is she? Well, this palette contains 12 eyeshadows. A mix of mattes and shimmers (to die for) with striking colours from the most beautiful burnt orange to a reddish pink that most definitely will get the creative juices flowing. It also contains a highlighter, a matte contour and a beautiful peach blush making this my perfect travel addition. This might just get a holiday outta me this year. On first glimpse people that prefer a more natural eye look may find this a tad bit too much. Some of the shades look slightly pertrifying but you would be totally surprised how versatile they are. The left side of the palette has those beautiful warm orange shades while the right side leans more to the reddish/pink tones. Both sides are equally lovely in my opinion but the orange tones just sing to me. This palette […]

Microneedling was always a word I was petrified of. The whole Kim K vampire facial fiasco made my skin crawl. For a long time I totally avoided the treatment. However, lately we have become more educated on the treatment and thankfully, there are much less invasive forms on the market now including one that you can do at home yourself. Dermarolling is a form of microneedling but to a much lesser extent that some of the craziness we have seen on the internet in recent years. Today, I want to give you all the facts about the treatment and tell you how you can perform it at home, in your PJ’s and without breaking the bank. So what is a dermaroller? Well, although it can look like a miniature torture device it’s actually not that bad. And, for the results you get it is worth the effort (and the discomfort).  A dermaroller is just as it looks.  Its a wheel mechanism that has 500 plus titanium/stainless steel needles that when used leaves tiny pricks in the skin. Why would it do this? Well basically, depending on the size of the needles dermarolling can genuinely work wonders on the skin. When […]

Before I start waffling, I want to tell you that this product was sent as a press sample, for consideration of review. You will see as you read on that I have given my 100% honest opinion and I have even gone a step further and teamed up with Dermalogica to bring you all a little giveaway. Read on to the end to find out how to enter. What if I told you you could wake up each morning with hydrated, brighter, revitalised skin? You would want to know how right? Well Dermalogica’s latest Sound Sleep Cocoon promises just that. Sleep is most definitely an essential in everyone’s skincare routine. While we sleep our skin will revitalise and detox all the nasties we have come across during the day leaving us with a fresher, youthful appearance. We all know lack of sleep will only cause extra fine lines, dark circles and even dull skin. This latest innovation from Dermalogica works to not only promote sounder sleep patterns (by including essential oils in the mix) but it also optimises the skin natural recovery process to ensure the skin works extra hard during the hours that we do sleep. How does it do that? Dermalogica tell us….. […]

My obsession with essence cosmetics is growing by the day!!! I recently added a load of new products from their range to my collection (after I attended an event and was allowed pick some products I wanted to try). I’m loving them all to be honest but, three products really do stand out for me. Forget the price, forget the brand, these products are ones I would repurchase time and time again, no matter what they cost. But it’s even better that they costs less than €20 for all three of them. Let’s start with the one that I have blabbed on and on about on social media. The Fresh & Fit Awake Makeup is my new favourite. This is one of those foundations that just works for me, with no fuss.  The light reflective particles make my skin look fresh and radiant without looking too shiny. It would definitely say this is a light to medium coverage. Use a damp sponge for a sheer application while a kabuki brush will definitely give you extra coverage. I also love the texture of this. It feels very light weight and looks quiet natural.  It’s almost cooling on the skin, maybe this […]

Yaaaaassssss Flormar!!! You did good!! Their Double Radiance Primer has quickly become a firm favourite of mine since I tried it back in September last year. This product is designed to be a makeup primer while adding a natural radiance to the skin. I originally added this to my collection for the highlighting properties rather than the priming benefits but it does a decent job at both. Lemme just say! If your skin is on the pale side, this isn’t going to be the most flattering. However, if you wear fake tan or have a naturally sallow complexion then this will knock your socks off. For even darker skins it will make a banging highlight. Flormar, if you are listening please fix the porcelain peeps up with a lighter shade. It just adds such a stunning glow to the skin and takes any products you apply over it to a new level. It is perfect for using under or mixed with foundations that you find are a little too matte. Or, if you want to up the radiance of your current products this will work great. Although, it doesn’t look overly glowy on the skin it does just add a subtle […]

essence are one of the best brands I know for updating their collection every season. And as the products are so inexpensive you can update your makeup collection for the new season without breaking the bank. essence were so kind to send me some of their releases for Spring/Summer 2018 and I want to share my top picks with you today. I always find with essence that they bring out two types of products, some are gimmicky while others are really high quality, staple products. Most of my top picks belong to the lather category, although there are some really fun bits too. The item that caught my attention first from the new releases was the ‘you better work! gym-proof primer’ €4.40 for 30ml.  This is said to be sweat proof, long lasting and protects the skin with SPF 20. So what do I think? Well, I love the look it gives to my skin. It has a green tint to it so it does minimise any redness and I find my pores definitely look less obvious with this (thats also one of the claims). I also found that my foundation lasted considerably longer while using this. However, it has […]

Are you over the age of 20? Do you have some sort of skincare routine? If the answers are yes, then you need to try Alpha-H Liquid Gold with Glycolic Acid if you haven’t already. Honestly, it’s a game changer. So how does it work? Well, Glycolic Acid is an AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) that works to gently but effectively exfoliate the skin. Don’t be alarmed by the word acid. Infact AHA is found naturally in sugar cane so although the name may sound scary, it’s actually very kind to the skin, provided you use it in the right way. Glycolic acid will penetrate the damaged layers of the skin which effectively aids in removing dead skin cells revealing a much more vibrant, even complexion. It will also removes any decongestion in the skin  encouraging cell turnover. As a result, over time you will see a reduction in pigmentation, fine lines and uneven skin texture. It is not only an amazing exfoliant. It also increases skins hydration levels with continued use, allows for better absorption of products you apply for days after using this and help to reduce acne scarring. See, if you have skin, you can benefit from this! […]

Obsession isn’t the word to describe my relationship with the Indigo Mermaid Effects. There are so many variations of this type of product on the market! Believe me I have tried the lot but none of them compare to my beloved Indigo. So what are they? Well, they are dusts/fine glitters that you rub into a dispersion (tacky layer after curing) layer or place into a non cured, no wipe top coat to create the most mesmerising, stunning finish.   Indigo have so many different types of mermaid effects. Everything from neons to pastels (which I will review in a later post) but first I want to show you all my absolute favouirites which are the regular mermaid and the mermaid black. Just look at them!!! In the below photo I have done comparisons of them all. Firstly, at the bottom,  you will see five polishes from the Indigo Miami collection (again I will review these in later posts), next, to the right you can see these five with the original dust rubbed into the dispersion layer of the gel polish after curing. The next five are the original mermaid placed into a non cured, no wipe top coat and then cured under a lamp. This gives almost […]

Penneys have been absolutely killing it lately with their beauty releases. They are now offering a huge range of makeup, brushes, skincare and everything in between!  Some of the products have even been crowned “perfect dupes” for more expensive, higher end versions. The PS Nudes collection which was launched end of Feb plays homage to the ever popular “less is more” makeup trend. Highlighted cheeks, perfected lips and minimal eye makeup are all represented on the catwalks this year and Penneys have this trend down to a T with this new line. There are several amazing products in the collection ranging from the show stopping eye palette, a KKW inspired contour and highlight kit and an abundance of lippies that are guaranteed to tickle your fancifuls. Let’s start with the most hyped of the bunch. The Contour and Highlight kit contains two dual ended cream pencils. One is a contour/bronzer and the other is for highlighting. You also get a brow highlighting pencil and a double ended applicator that has a brush on one end and a sponge on the other (look familiar to anyone?!) So what do I think? Well to be honest. This kit is bitter sweet. Some of the products i.e […]
