REVIEW | Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette

IMG_8930 (1) Gwen is synonymous with cool. In my world Gwen is also synonymous with teenage heartbreak, oh yes I was that teenager you heard crying her eyes out to Don’t Speak after a boy I liked for 3 whole days kissed someone called Vicky at the local disco (*rolls on the floor laughing at that memory). Thankfully my taste in boys improved somewhat albeit after a few disasters ha, but I remained a Gwen fan. I mean she sampled Maria from The Sound of Music, the woman just ticks all my boxes.

Anyway back to the BEAUTEOUS palette… Continue Reading

Iron Away Puffy Eye Bags with Benefit Puff Off

An iron on the top of an eye gel? Obviously I have to know if it works. When I heard about the iron I first thought gimmick! I assumed it would be plastic and look tacky but actually its like a dainty little monopoly piece. It’s not the iron itself,  its that it stays cold, like applying the back of a cold spoon to your eye puffs. Although the shape of the tip works much better with the shape of your under eye area… Continue Reading

Urban Decay’s Pulp Fiction Palette, Polish & Eyeliner

I’m not ashamed to admit that if Urban Decay release a new palette, I have to have it. I love the quality and pigmentation of the shadows, adore the packaging and well I honestly I get sucked in by the limited edition part. There is a par of me that also loves a gimmick. Their latest palette was released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film Pulp Fiction. Continue Reading

Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Collection – Review & Pics

I won’t lie to you, I just about skipped with delight when Charlotte Tilburry’s makeup range arrived at their new stand in Brown Thomas. I mashed myself in between all the bodies trying to get a nosy at the beauteous products I had heard so much about. I got the chance to join some other beauty bloggers and really explore the brand. I am in love! Continue Reading

IMG_1869

I know I have been a naughty blogger and haven’t posted in ages. I had some site issues combined with some holidays and well time got away from me. The good news is that I have been testing heap loads of new products in that time and have engaged in a spot of shopping, ok so “a spot” is an understatement but you knew that! I have a lot to share and have been preparing blog posts like the good little obsessive beauty junkie I am. So enjoy today’s makeup musings and I shall be back in the morning to tell you about an amazing lifting treatment and something called ‘the Cinderella effect’. Disney princess’s completely grab my attention.

Now, to the important stuff! Continue Reading

The Balm |Hot Mama Blush & Plump Your Pucker Gloss

I have fallen head over heels for The Balm. Granted up until these two products I have only tried the Nude Tude Palette and the Mary Lou-Manizer (reviews to follow), but the quality of the products is very impressive and the price is great. Hot Mama Blush and Plump Your Pucker Gloss arrived recently from Cloud10Beauty.com. I have been using them both daily for the past month so it was high time for a review. Continue Reading
