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…

2016 Budget favourites

2016 budget favourites

What a year 2016 was! For so many, 2016 will be chalked down as one to forget. It was the year that saw a multitude of celebrity deaths. World politics went a little of track and there seemed like there was a lot of personal heartache on my timeline.  However, for me, 2016 was one of the best yet. As 2016 was the year I became a mammy! I am sure you’ve heard it again and again, but there really is nothing that can prepare you for the love you feel for a tiny human. Even the sleepless nights are manageable, as you’re getting up to feed the tiny person you made and love!…

Stocking Filler gift guide

Every year when I ask my sister what does she want for Christmas, she always says “Little Bits.

This year I’ve decided to put together some of my top picks to help others in my position. Stuck for stocking fillers and “little bits”? Then look no further than The Beautiful Truth’s Stocking filler gift guide. NYX Smokey look kit Over the last few weeks I have been thoroughly enjoying the bronze smokey look kit from NYX.…

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…

October Favourites

My October favourites are a little late this month, but better late than never. This month I found myself stepping outside of my comfort zone of products, and trying lots of new products, as well as some old favourites. I was especially trying some new things when it came to base and lips. Wet N Wild Mega last lipsticks I am a massive fan of the Wet N Wild Mega last lipsticks. These lipsticks are a semi matte lipstick,yet they don’t wear like a matte. Instead they are creamy on the lips, long wearing, pigmented, and comfortable on the lips. I can’t say enough good things about these lipsticks. For the past…

Wet’n’Wild Petal Pusher Palette Review

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few months, you will already know that the massively popular US brand Wet n Wild landed on Irish shores last January. If you haven’t already bought at least 1 item from this incredible brand, you seriously need to get yourself down to you nearest Dunnes and get something. Honestly the range is amazing. Already so many of their products have found their way into my favourites. One of my most used Wet n Wild products over the last few months, is the Petal Pusher Palette ( try saying that fast again and again). I adore the looks that this palette creates as…

March Favourites

I can’t believe that it is nearly April. The time is literally flying by, but the good thing is that means we are getting closer and closer to the warm summer months. I literally can’t wait to feel the heat of the sun on my legs. While I have tried to change up my makeup look everyday this month, there have been a few staples that I have used over and over again. Nars Laguna Bronzer     This is my first ever Nars product to own and my god did I choose well. This is the perfect bronzer for a light natural powder contour. The Laguna bronzer gives a…
