2014 The Year Of….

Untitled

The Selfie…..just kidding. Though trust me, you wouldn’t want to see a close up of my face right now, I’ve been sick all over Christmas. It’s been a quiet one in this house, myself and the small boy have spent our days in front of the fire watching Harry Potter movies. His father has been dodging the germs by carrying on with the usual Christmas tradition of going out and getting hammered. Chance would be a fine thing. Anyway, I digress.

For me anyway, beautywise, 2014 has been mostly about SpaceNK & Charlotte Tilbury. Or the year I gave all my money to SpaceNK & Charlotte Tilbury. Continue reading

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm

After years of hearing of this cleanser being at the top of the list of the highest rated cleansers out there, I bit the bullet and bought it recently when it was on offer on the Emma Hardie website. It’s normally £36 (t’would want to give you an Amazing Face for that) for 100ml size with double sided muslin/microfibre cloth, but at the time I ordered it you also got a 50ml travel size included in the price. There’s free UK shipping so if you use Parcel Motel like I did, it’ll only cost you the parcel motel fee of €3.95 rather than the extortionate UK-Ireland shipping charge of £10.75!!

Right, time to get cracking on the reviews for all the stuff I got in my recent beauty haul. First up is Ceramic Slip cleanser from Sunday Riley. It’s €42 for 125ml from SpaceNK on Grafton Street, which is by no means cheap, but I was on a bit of beauty bender and I had heard it was good to help balance a combination Continue reading

Prepare to have a serious case of “The Wants”

Hourglass cosmetics are bringing out an Ambient Lighting Blush Palette this Autumn!!!! Yes you heard right, all the mega stardom of Ambient Lighting palette & the Ambient Lighting Blushes rolled into one. I read about it on The Sunday Girl last night & instantly had to investigate. It will include Mood Exposure, Luminous Flush & a new shade called Incandescent Electra. You can get a quick glimpse of what it will look like in this tongue in cheek pr video here. It’s at 4 minutes in. You’re going to want this bad, so maybe best to start saving now as if the Ambient Lighting Palette price is anything to go by it’ll be about €70.

Haulin in SpaceNK, Boots & Brown Thomas

So I was away for the weekend in Dublin & I went a small bit mad shopping with Karen from Lovely Girlie Bits. I’d planned on getting some clothes & boots & some beauty bits. But none of the clothes/shoes I wanted were in stock so I blew the entire budget on beautification. Plus some jewellery from Parfois thrown in for good measure. I also ordered a few bits online in the last few weeks. So here are the pics of my haul. I’ll do some proper reviews once I’ve had a chance to try everything out, but for the moment, here is my haul in all it’s gluttony glory. Continue reading

Do you have that one beauty item that you buy over and over again?

I do, it’s peachy pink blushers. A quick rummage through my stash just now brought 8 peachy pink blushers to the surface without too much bother. I’m sure if I had a good auld nose I’d come up with a few more too. They’re all the same, yet totally different…iykwim. Continue reading
