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…

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.

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…

My top NYX picks and a chance to win €100 worth of NYX products

It is overwhelming standing in front of a packed stand and not knowing what to buy. So here are my top picks from NYX, so you know exactly what to pick up on your next trip to a NYX stand Butter Gloss I have actually lost count at of how many of these I have.There are 12 different colours in this collection, with a colour to suit everyone and at this stage it could easily be 8 or 9 that I own.…

Going nude and loving it

So here’s the thing. Never, ever, ever, go shopping with a beauty blogger. I mean ever!! Your bank balance won’t be the better for it. Last Saturday I went shopping with Kat from Sophistikat.ie and to say she was an enabler would be an understatement. However, I regret nothing!! Of course I need 5 nude lipsticks and a lip pencil. If they had of had the colours I wanted in stock,  there would have been even more in this haul. I have only recently gotten into the nude lipstick thing and before this haul I only owned 2 nude lipsticks. I mean that’s shameful for a beauty blogger. So when it boils…

The 12 Reds of Christmas

At this time of year, I love nothing more than a strong red lipstick . To me it screams Christmas party season and it looks so elegant, especially when paired with a simple eye. However, finding the perfect red can be hard work and there is a lot of trial and error. For today’s post I have taken the hassle out of the search for you. Last year, mags from Emerald Eyeliner, did a series of posts on the 12 red of Christmas, which I absolutely loved, so I decided this year I would take some inspiration from her and do my own.  I have shopped my stash and taken…

Kylie Jenner nude lips

A few months ago, Kylie Jenner posted a picture on Instagram of her makeup, including a nude lipstick. The makeup world went made for it.For months we have been subjected to posts about how to achieve the perfect Kylie Jenner lip, and for months I have ignored these posts as I really didn’t like nude lipstick.  That is until recently, when for the first time I wore a nude lipstick and fell in love. I recently decided to treat myself to a makeup over from the makeup artist Buff & Blend in Dublin. If you haven’t heard of her before, you need to follow her Facebook page, as she is…

Too Faced Melted Liquified long wear lipstick – melted violet

I tip my hat to the PR gurus behind the Too Faced Melted lipsticks, as at the start of the summer my timeline was flooded with reviews of these lipsticks. These were hailed as the new must have lip product. Every single person was raving about them and I had a feeling that my life wouldn’t be complete without at least one of them my life. These lipsticks are said to give you the best of a lipstick and lip gloss in one product. Seriously this had my name written all over it. Not only that, but the colours in this range are to die for. They are vibrant and…

The Queen of all lipsticks. Mac Ruby Woo

I convinced myself for a long time that I didn’t need this lipstick. I already had two beautiful red lipsticks that I loved and sure what does a girl need with another read lipstick? Yet the more I saw this lipstick on people, the more I knew it had to be mine. While in Florida last July, I finally took the plunge and my god I am so happy I did. This is honestly one of the most beautiful lipsticks I have ever tried. Actually scratch that, this is literally the Queen of all lipsticks. If you catch yourself looking at celebrities fab red lips on the red carpet, you…

Spotlight on Inglot Lipsticks

Those of you that have been reading the blog for a while, will know that I am a massive Inglot fan. One of my favourite products is their lipsticks. I just can’t get enough of them and today I am focusing on my favourite Inglot lipsticks in my collection. I just can’t get enough of Inglot lipsticks. The quality of these lipsticks are up there with the best of them.  They are extremely pigmented, moist on the lips and long-lasting like no other high end lipstick I have tried that isn’t a matte. They have a massive range of colours and the best part is, they don’t break the bank…

Summer lipsticks

The first step with addictions is admitting you have a problem and my god I have a problem with it comes to pink lipsticks. The problem is I just can’t get enough of them. I want them all. My boyfriend often says ” you bought another pink lipstick? Sure you have a pink lipstick already” Eh NO. Does he not realise how many shades of pink there are? How in the grand scheme of things I only have a teeny tiny percentage of the pinks that are out there. Does he not know how many lonely pinks I have left behind, or I have not found yet? For today’s post,…

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick

If you are a lover of matte lipsticks, then listen up.You NEED these in your life. You need to get yourself down to your closest Bourjois stand and get your hands on as many of these as possible. They are just that good. I am a big fan of matte lipsticks, but often find that they can be too drying on my lips, and my lips end up looking flaky half way through the day/night.That is not the case with these.  The Bourjois Rouge Edition velvet lipstick is said to have a soft velvet finish that is non drying on the lips. Bourjois claim that this has 24 hour lasting…

Inglot 254 Lipstick

Lets just throw it out there. I love pink lipstick. I actually can’t get enough of them. I feel like I need to search for every different shade of pink lipstick there is, to have in my collection. My latest addition to my pink addiction, is the Inglot lipstick in 254. Oh Lordy this is a pretty one. If you haven’t tried Inglot lipsticks, firstly you need to take a long hard look at yourself and ask why in god’s name you haven’t bought at least one. Then you need to get to your nearest Inglot store and buy at least 5 of them. Alongside Mac, these are hands down my favourite…

Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge 16

I am a massive fan of a pink lip. In fact the vast majority of my lipsticks are pink. I just can’t get enough of them, and when I saw this hot pink shade from Make Up For Ever, being used in a demonstration a few months back, I knew I couldn’t leave the shop without buying it.   Aqua rouge is a liquid lipstick that is seriously long lasting, smudge proof and it doesn’t transfer onto your glass or food. I have actually never tried a lip product that lasts as long as this. I am talking, hours and hours of eating, talking and drinking and it will still look…

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick

I am quickly gathering a very impressive lipstick collection. I have a serious rainbow of colours, that would make any lipstick lover proud. So when I spied these little beauties from Urban Decay I just couldn’t leave them behind. Last Autumn, Urban Decay released the a range of lipsticks called Revolution. There are 22 shades of lipstick in this range, with everything from the brightest pink to nudes. They come in really sleek looking sliver tubes, with Urban Decay branding embossed down the side of the tube and on top of the lid. The lipsticks themselves promise to be creamy, long-lasting, hydrating and nourishing. A tall order from a lipstick,…

Red lips with Inglot 126

I love a strong red lip, especially around this time of the year. After the death of my favourite red lippy, Smashbox Legendary,  after a short mourning period, I was on the hunt for a few red lip and found this beauty. Inglot 126 is a fab blue based red. It gives the appearance of a matte lipstick, which I love, but is actually lovely and creamy and doesn’t dry out on your lips. It has good staying power, I wore it for 4 hours and only had to top up once. It actually stains your lips so even when it wears off your lips have a bit of colour…
