Mac blusher haul

With the winter fast approaching, it is time to bring a little colour into our lives and embrace glowy cheeks for the cold days ahead. When it comes to blushers, I have many favourites, but right up there at the top is Mac blushers. Yes I know, I am a more than a little bit of a Mac fan girl, but sure what harm. When buying blushers from Mac, I strongly suggest that you ditch buying blushers in the packaging and instead opt for the pan format. The reason being a regular blusher in packaging costs €24 compared to the blusher in the pan at €20. Not only that, blushers in the…

The Mac Haul

Seriously, could I milk these haul videos anymore? I have finally edited my final haul for you guys and this time it is packed full of products that you can actually get in Ireland, so be warned. This will not be good for your bank account, but if it is any consolation, you will look fabulous!! I’m sure there will be people wondering why I bought so much Mac when it is available in Ireland. Well here’s the thing. It is quite a bit cheaper in the States then it is on our fair Isle. Yes like everything else, we seem to be a soft touch for the extra few…

USA Haul part 1: The Drugstore Haul

Oh Lordy did I buy makeup!! I bought so much, that I am having to divide all my USA purchases into 3 separate videos!! The first of these videos is all about the drugstore and online buys. When it comes to drugstore makeup, there seems to be so many more products available in the States and also a much wider variety of shades. I find that the drugstore can be a little overwhelming at times, so it is good to go with a list of what you want to buy. To help make life a little easier for you, I am going to list my favourites places to shop for…

The Final USA Haul

When I look back on my haul posts I realise I bought a serious amount of beauty products when I was away. This is the final haul of everything I bought and I did think long and hard before I bought almost all of these items. Clinique Dramatically different moisturising lotion I used to use this years ago and actually don’t know why I stopped. To me this is a good solid moisturising lotion that does exactly what it says on the skin. A little goes a long way and this will last me for months. I really like this moisturiser.  I have got one little gripe with this moisturiser and that…

USA Haul Part 2

My makeup collection has seriously grown on this trip. My wardrobe not so much. Im so disappointed with the clothes shopping and now I fear I am no longer able to shop!!! I have lost mo shopping mojo. Hourglass Ambient lighting powder in Dim light For those of you that haven’t heard of The hourglass Ambient lighting powders, they are basically finishing powders and highlighters that blur out fine lines and pores. I can’t rave about them enough and promise to do a full blog post on how they work asap. I was actually so annoyed that I bought this one as I already have it in my holiday palette.…

USA haul Part 1

Any of you that follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, may already have gathered that I am in the USA. Orlando to be exact. I decided to book a little trip, as I start treatment when I get back. The sun has really given me a boost and helps in taking my mind off things.  The shopping helps too. That really helps. NYX Blusher in Mocha The reason there is only 1 NYX blush in this haul is because the stand only had 1 left. Otherwise I would have wiped them out myself. I love NYX. Their blushers are fab. So pigmented and easy to use. They are hard…

Pick me up Haul

So I have been stuck in the house for nearly 2 weeks recovering from my latest surgery. I was going out of my mind. So this morning when I woke up I decided that it was time to look a little bit more human and make my way into town for a little treat. Credit card in hand I headed for Henry street and did a little bit, not a lot, of damage. Bobby Brown Creamy Concealer Kit and Corrector                                                            …
