Jane Iredale So Bronze Bronzing powder 01

As a beauty blogger, there are a lot of products that land on my makeup table to try. Some I love, some  are ok and some I wouldn’t be overly fond of. However, it is very rare that a product that I have heard absolutely nothing about before, comes and completely blows me away. Yet that is exactly what happened with the Jane Iredale So bronze bronzer. Over the years, I have come across many bronzers that I have really loved. They were perfect colours,  blended well into my skin and overall worked very well for me. I thought I had my bronzer stash worked out. That was until I…

Brand Spotlight : Benefit Cosmetics

I’ve decided that it is about time I started a new blog series on The Beautiful Truth. For the next few weeks/months, I am going to focus on my favourite products from different brands. I will also throw in a clanger or two if there are items I am not overly fond of by a particular brand. For my first brand spotlight, I have decided to take a look at some products from Benefit cosmetics. Benefit is a brand that I have actually never featured on the blog. If I am honest, for a very long time, I thought Benefit was extremely over priced for what it was. I think this sentiment…

My Ride or Die products

With so many products coming through the door  everyday both from generous companies and from my secret online shopping escapades, I tend to switch up the products I use quite a bit. I always make sure to give products thorough testing before I review them, but I often find that once the blog post is written, it is onto the next product that needs reviewing. However, even though I change my products quicker than the Irish weather on a summers day, I always have my die hard products that I fall back on. My ride or die products. Ride of die products are those items of makeup that you continually repurchase…

Physicians Formula Bronzers for Summer & competition

Over the past few months I have noticed a change in the makeup world. Many of the top makeup artists are moving away from the the heavily contoured look, in favour of a gentle bronzed glow. Even the Kardashians themselves, the catalyst for the heavily contoured look, are backing away from the contouring powders and cream and instead opting for a little more of a natural look. Physicians Formula have a massive range of bronzers to pick from and for some weeks now I have been trying out a number of the them to see which ones work best for me. If you follow me on snapchat ( @thebeauttruth) you…

The dupe that just isn’t a dupe!!

Beauty lovers are constantly searching out affordable alternatives to high end products. Over the past number of months, the beauty world has gone mad for finding the next budget product that is a dupe for its more expensive counterpart. Bloggers are constantly trying out new items in the hope of hitting gold and finding that dupe that will bring the page views rolling in. To me, a dupe is a rare thing. I true dupe, must act the same as the higher end product. It must both look and perform the exact same way to be classed as a dupe. Having the same shade, in my eyes, is not enough…

Gone are the days of the racing stipe down the side of our face. Instead we are being introduced to a natural bronzed contour and lots and lots of glowing natural skin. We have all fallen victim to the muddy streak of bronzer down the side of our face in the quest for the sculpted…

Mac mineralise skin finish Natural in Give Me Sun

A few weeks ago, my sister treated me to a makeover in Mac Galway for my hen party. As some of you may be aware, when you get your makeup done in Mac, the cost of the makeover is redeemable in product. I went for a full makeover, so that meant that I was able to pick out €50 worth of product. Sure no bother to me. I mean let’s call a spade a spade, I could have easily picked out 5 times that amount of product. I picked out Mac Mineralise skin finish natural in Give me Sun and the lipstick Viva Glam II. Give me Sun is described…
