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…

Hit, Miss or Maybe : Concealers

As someone who has quite dark circles, I am incredibly hard and picky on the concealers I use. My concealer needs to not only cover my dark circles, but they must be comfortable, long wearing and above all they must not settle in my fine lines! Often with a concealer you can get a feel for how good it is on first use. However, some concealers need a little TLC on application, as not all concealer apply and work the same way. For todays post I am going to put some much loved concealers to the test. Some concealers that I love, will be ones others hate. While I know…

Make Up Forever Ultra HD foundation

Considering I have had this foundation since last July, it has taken me a long time to get around to writing a review. The reason for this being I couldn’t make my mind up on it. When I initially got a few samples in Sephora I absolutely adored it. Then when I bought the full bottle, I just couldn’t seem to get on with it. I found it patchy and not very long wearing. Now thankfully because I finally had the good sense to try it with a primer, I have been able to do a full and detailed analysis of how I really feel about the Make Up For…

bronzer contouring

Make Up For Ever Bronze Fusion Bronzer

There has been a definite change in the makeup world over the past few months when it comes to contouring. Open any magazine, look to the catwalk or even check out your favourite Youtube makeup artists and you will see that there is an absolute change in the direction on how we contour our face. 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…

Make Up For Ever Graphic Liner

My little heart skips a beat every time I use this liner. Gone are the days where I struggle to get a perfect wing and end up with eyeliner half way down my face. Instead those days have been replaced by a stress free, easy application of my liner, thanks to the Make Up For Ever Graphic liner. For the last few months I have been without one of my favourite liners from Physicians Formula, as my mother saw it and took it on me and I haven’t been able to find a stockist. When the MUFE Graphic liner came into my life a few weeks ago, all thoughts of…

EYESHADOW makeup storage

Make Up For Ever Magnetic palette

Before I begin this post, I need to put my hands up and admit to the fact that I have problem with it comes to buying eye shadow. You see the thing is, when you’re not suppose to be buying makeup, €10 for a Mac eyeshadow or €6 for an Inglot shadow, doesn’t really impact your bank balance all that much, but at the same time you get your little makeup buying fix. I will put it to you this way, I buy new eyeshadows for a night out, the way some people buy shoes!! I’m actually saving myself money if you really think about it. When it comes to…
