MeMeMe arrives in Ireland – Properly! …….. First Impressions & Pics

MeMeMe_Cosmetics_Ireland_Review

So MeMeMe Cosmetics have arrived in Ireland… all over Ireland! Woo Hoo! For those of you interested in the brand you may have noticed it’s presence in Superdrug in Santry over the years. It was always poorly stocked, there were never testers available and all of the products left on the shelves had been opened, used and were smudged or broken. The brand really called to me each visit though – it’s affordable, and the boutique packaging is so cute. It was a tad out of place in our awful Superdrug store. Now it will be available in pharmacies all over Ireland, and not in Superdrug at all. I couldn’t be happier. Continue Reading

The focus of NYC’s new makeup trend this season is peachy, luminescent skin. I could do with some of that!

Skin Matching Luminizer Foundation is available in 5 shades. It’s a lightweight foundation which contains light-reflecting particles. It contains emollients, vitamins and minerals and moisturises the skin whilst evening out the skintone. It also costs only €4.49 / £3.99

Liquid Lip Shine is available in Toast of New York and Pink Cosmo. One peach, one pink. I have raved about NYC glosses before so I won’t bore you but basically they are great! They also taste of Refresher sweets, yum :). €2.29 / £2.99

Colour Wheel Mosaic in Pink Cheek Glow. This is a another one of my NYC favourites. The pink works best of my skintone, whilst the peach looks great on other but unfortunately not on my skin. You can’t go wrong with these! €3.79 /£3.99

Colour Instinct Palette in Picnic in Central Park. Contains four wearable neutrals. These shadows are very pigmented. If you like gold shadows then pick this up, the gold in particular is amazing on blue eyes.  €3.49 / £3.49

Kohl Eyeliner in Chocolate Brown. This is a very decent liner, especially when you factor in the price. Well worth adding into your shopping trolley. €1.49 / £1.99

City Mono Eyeshadows from NYC Eyeshadows

It’s a scorcher of a day here in the Canaries. Too hot for lounging about getting over-heated so I decided to take myself to a local air conditioned cafe for a spot of blogging. There are a few products I want to talk about this week but the first lot that popped into my mind are the City Mono Eyeshadow from N.Y.C. – New York Color Cosmetics.

I have been trying out four shades over the past few weeks… Continue Reading

Mmmm! MaxFactor Goodies

Max Factor is a brand have dipped into on occasion but have limited experience with. I love their mascaras – 2000 Calorie was a favourite of mine for a long time. I also once had a brief fling with one of their foundations – I remember recording a foundation tutorial with it way back when.

I am happy to be able to explore the bounties of this brand a little more.

24 from False Lash Effect Mascara – This mascara has a built-in primer that wraps lashes. Max Factor is a sister company of the US brand Covergirl – hence the latters infamous Lashblast being the same as the formers False Lash Effect Mascara. I have always been a fan od Max Factors mascara and I’m sure this one will be no different!

I have two of Revlons Flipstick Colour Effects Lipsticks – Bloomy Pink and Salsa Red. They are lip duos. The colours can be worn alone, blended together or used on different parts of the lips – to highlight the plumpness for example. (€11.99) “An innovative double-ended lipstick you mix, match and personalise your own lip colour”.

 

I have never tried Max Factors nail polishes either so I shall have some fun swatching these.

Right, I’m off to start swatching and testing!
