I am still raving about Jane Iredale, what can I say, it’s clearly love!  I picked up this beautiful eyeshadow palette while I was visiting Jane Iredale’s offices in London – you can read all about that in my post all about Discovering Clean Beauty.  Back to the eyeshadow – specifically the Naturally Matte palette.

Clarins Supra Volume Mascara

You might remember seeing this mascara from my recent Simple Glowy Look.  I picked it up as part of one of Christmas gift sets, they’re such a great wait to try out different products.  This is the Clarins Supra Volume mascara*, which retails for £21.50 and you get the standard 8ml.    It’s definitely on […]

I’ve had Clarins gift vouchers gathering dust for a wee while, so I decided to splurge out on a few makeup bits.  First for review is the Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream.  This retails at £30 for 45ml and has SPF25.  There are only 3 shades available, I have the lightest shade, 01 Fair.  I […]

Scarlett Jewellery

Scarlett Jewellery Collections

Recently I popped along to the rather wonderful Scarlett Jewellery blogger evening to see the new Christmas lines, I should point out straight away, this was no average blogger evening.  We got to have a sneak peek into the workshop and learn how the jewellery is created.  I was more than a little bit excited […]

Snail Moisturiser Review!

Skin Chemist Snail Moisturiser

There has been lots of talk recently about snail secretion in various skin treatments, it’s the new Bee Venom.  I’ve been testing out this Snail Duo Moisturiser from Skin Chemist London for about 6 weeks, maybe a bit longer.  This costs £72 for 50ml, so definitely on the high end of the scale in regards […]

All about the brows

Eyebrow Pencil Comparison

Before we start, I will point out now, you will not find Instagram perfect brows here. They’re not really my style.  I also have a love hate relationship with my brows, sometimes they’re perfect, other times, not a mission.  I generally use pencils more than anything else when it comes to my brows, they’re just […]

High end or High Street Highlighter?

Laura Mercier vs Catrice

I’ve been playing with these highlighters for quite some time, since the end of February as it turns out – I included them in my Irish beauty haul post.  I’ve briefly mentioned my love of the Catrice High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder in 010 Light Infusion in my March Favourites and it’s been love ever since.

L’Oreal Fixing Mist or Urban Decay Setting Spray?

L'Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist

I have been a long time fan of the Urban Decay De-Slick makeup setting spray.  It costs £22* for 118ml and £9* for the 30ml travel size that I  now own.  It does such a wonderful job at holding everything in place and taking away the powdery look of any finished makeup look.  I think […]

August High End & High Street Beauty Buys

Beauty Buys

It was my birthday in August, so I may have treated myself to the odd nice item this month and a tiny spurge.  Obviously because it was my birthday, while I was in Dublin  I did pick up a few items that you can’t pick up in the UK.    I repurchased my Botanics Cleansing […]

Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer

Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer

This retails at £15* for 2.5ml, which places it on the higher end of eyelid primers.  I’ve been testing this out for at least a month now and I have to admit I really quite enjoy it.  I may even prefer it over my mac painterly paint pot as a lid primer.  Plus I prefer […]

Clarins Instant Light Vs No7 BB Lips, dupe?

Bit of a review and comparison of the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector* in the shade 01 and the No7 BB Lips in the shade Blink Pink.   I’ve had the BB Lips for quite a few months but I’ve only recently acquired the Clarin Instant Light and I think I may have an accidental dupe!  So let’s […]
