Blogger mail: The good, the bad and the ugly

As a blogger, I am fortunate enough to try out a lot of new products every month. Somethings I love, some a bit meh and others are just not great at all. With so much product coming through the door, I don’t always find the time to write individual blog posts reviewing everything I get. In fact at the moment I am finding it hard to get more than one post a week up! So to try and tell you about as much new makeup bits as possible, I have decided to write a new monthly series. Each month, I am going to write a post telling you about a number…

Nude Lipstick for every budget

I love a good nude lipstick. Something easy to wear, yet a lipstick that gives a wow finish. I have picked out my 10 most used nude lipsticks from the past few months for today’s post. One thing I will add is that for the most part I wear a lip liner with these lipstick. If you want a versatile lipliner, I can’t recommend Mac Whirl lipstick enough. It goes with almost every one of these lipsticks. Mac Faux There isn’t much lipstick left in my tube of Faux . I have worn this colour to death!!! Faux is a warm pink satin finish lipstick. This colour is so incredibly…

Under the radar products

The beauty world is a fickle place. Often there are products that receive a lot of attention and hype. Sometimes this attention and hype is justified and other times not so much. Then you have products, that perform like a dream and yet get little to no attention from the online beauty gurus and makeup fans. Under the radar products! Under the radar products, does not mean under the radar brands. Very often there are popular brands that have hidden gems that people just don’t know about. For todays post, I have picked out a number of my favourite products that I use on a regular basis, that tend to go under…

Victoria Beckham makeup x Estee Lauder at The Loop

If you follow my snapchat, @thebeauttruth, you will have seen my pure and utter joy when these beauties dropped through my letter box from The Loop Duty free. I had been eagerly awaiting the release of this collection. With Beckham’s clothing line being not only out of my price range but out of my waist range too, Beckham makeup, was right up my street. The 15 piece limited edition collection, is quite literally the stuff of a beauty lovers dream. The collection is said to be based on Victoria’s 4 favourite cities, London, New York, Paris and LA. Each city represents a different look with London of course being having an edgy…

Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick

Ok, I know what you’re all thinking. Here she goes again, with another liquid lipstick. Over the past 18 months or so, there just seems to be one liquid lipstick release after another and for the most part, people are getting tired of the never ending launches. However, I had to tell you about the Too Faced Melted Mattes because they are honestly just beautiful to wear. There are 16 shades in the range with every thing from your everyday nude, right up to violets and navy!! Over the past few months I have been wearing 3 shades from the range quite a lot. Cool Girl, Queen B and Miso…

The Balm, Meet Matte Hughes review

For the past 18 months, there has been a constant stream of liquid lipstick releases. While we have seen some new regular lipsticks released, such as the Vice lipsticks, for the most part, brands have focused on capturing the popular liquid lipstick market. Yet not all releases are worth buying. Sometimes they are too drying, crack on the lips, wear badly, bleed, the list is endless and yet sometimes liquid lipsticks tick all the right boxes. The Meet Matt(E) Huges collection is one of those liquid lipstick ranges that just ticks all the right boxes. Released last year, with new colours added in recent months, the most popular shades of these…

Sleek Matte Me Lip Creams

When it comes to liquid lipsticks it seems there isn’t a brand out there that hasn’t tried it’s hand at creating the perfect product. From high end to budget brands, they all have their own range of liquid lipsticks, with varying levels of success. However, when it comes to liquid lipsticks, in my eyes the budget brands are winning hands down when it comes to quality, colour range, and everything else in between. The Sleek Matte Me lip creams are top of my list when it comes to liquid lipsticks. If you’re in the market for a lip product that glides onto the lips, dries matte and lasts for hours,…

Colourpop cosmetics haul

It seems there are quite a few Colourpop fans out there because when I posted pictures of the products I had purchased on social media, I was inundated with messages asking more about how I got them, what colours I got, how they wear and if they are worth the hype. Well today ladies I am here to answer all your questions. First off I need to point out that I did not get these products delivered to Ireland. Instead I had a family member over in the States who accepted a delivery for me. However, in saying that, there are ways and means around getting them here. Most notably…

Clinique Pop Lacquer Lip Colour + Primer

One of my favourite parts of blogging is that I am introduced to products and brands that I would never normally pick up when out shopping. Clinique is one of those brands that for one reason or another I have previously overlooked. Their products never really jumped out at me, but to be fair, that was because of my own lack of knowledge of the brand, rather than the products or brand itself. Over the past number of months I have had the pleasure of trying out a few bits from the Clinique range and have really fallen for quite a few, with the Quick Liner Intense for lips jumping…

Clinique Quickliner for lips Intense

I love this time of year as I get to wear warm berry toned lips. What I love even more is beautiful berry lips that last! Enter the Clinique quickener for lips intense. A long lasting Berry lip that would bring a tear to a statue! The Quickliner for lips intense is a twist up pencil that has taken me completely by surprise. These liners pack serious punch and the urge to buy more is so beyond intense. The Quickliner for lips intense have been released to go hand in hand with the Lip Pop Range. Each liner is said to compliment 2 shades from the Lip Pop Range. The shade range…

Urban Decay Revolution High-Colour Lip gloss

Ready for a lick of vibrant colour for your lips this summer? Well the Urban Decay Revolution High-colour lip gloss are everything you could want and more from a summer lip gloss. For the past few years, it seems that Urban Decay have spent a lot of time on the Naked path and while I am all for a little of their Naked goodness, it is great to see them introduce something new with these bright and bold, highly pigmented lip glosses for summer 2015. The new Revolution High Colour Lip gloss range has 14 shade available and range from Light pinks and nudes, all the way up to a…
