The Manicure Company Gel Polish

The Manicure Company Gel Polish

As a nail technician and a complete beauty addict I am always looking to try out new products. The Manicure Company exploded onto the Irish nail market in 2016 and they have grown and grown since then. I had wanted to try out some of their gel polishes since they launched but I didn’t get...
The Body Shop Almond Milk&Honey

The Body Shop Almond Milk&Honey

Suffering from Sensitive Skin? I may just have something for you. The Body Shop’s latest launch has me absolutely swooning. The Almond Milk & Honey range is specifically formulated for dry, sensitive skin. It works to soothe, restore and calm the skin while hydrating, nourishing and making you smell oh so fab!! There are quiet a few...
Essence the gel nail polish

Essence the gel nail polish

You probably all know by now that I am a qualified nail technician and nail educator. I have tried so many different nail brands both professional and non professional so I have an idea of what I am looking for when it comes to nail products. The nail industry was taken over in the last...
Becca Champagne Pop Pressed

Becca Champagne Pop Pressed

Highlighter is most definitely my thing! I love nothing more than the look of fresh, glowing skin. I feel any makeup look is not complete without that radiance. The highlighter game was most definitely slayed over the last while by the Becca Cosmetics and Jacyln Hill colab! I was a little late jumping on this bandwagon but...
LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation

LA Girl Pro Coverage Foundation

LA Girl is a brand that is new to me. For a long time us Irish girls were not able to get our hands on the brand unless we got it from the states. However, we now have two stockists available to us that both ship to Ireland. Beauty Bay stock this but even better...
Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance

So I really didn’t need another eyeshadow palette but I have to tell you I simply could not resist the Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) Modern Renaissance palette. It looked like everything I could ever want (a tad bit dramatic may I add). Reds, browns and warm tones in general are my thing PLUS I had to...
Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer

Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer

Concealer is my nemesis!! I naturally have a very expressive face and I have to admit I do love to laugh a bit. But that can come with a price. My under eye area is full of expression lines and most concealers I have tried tend to settle into these lines and make the area...
Becca Backlight Priming Filter

Becca Backlight Priming Filter

You cannot beat a glowing complexion. One of my favourite ways to achieve this is by applying a liquid highlighter under my foundation. However, sometimes the glow can be too intense and I opt for something much more understated. My top pick for a subtle but noticeable glow would have to be the Backlight Priming...
No7 Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator

No7 Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator

The No7 Total Renew Micro Dermabrasion Exfoliator is no joke. This most definitely isn’t your normal face scrub. This product claims to give you instantly fresher, clearer, younger looking skin. No7 say that although the results are instant there are longer term benefits too. Within 4 uses the skin will renew itself and as a result will work...
NYX Powders

NYX Powders

Although I do tend to have quiet tight, dehydrated skin I still could not go without even a small amount of setting powder over my foundation. I feel any powder products I put over my foundation (bronzer, blush etc) do not blend well if I don’t set my face first. I am a huge fan...
Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics

There is no doubt that Urban Decay know how to make a whopper eyeshadow palette! However, in the past I have had mixed reviews on the quality and pigmentation of their shadows. Some of the shadows have blown me away while others left me wanting more. So when the Naked Ultimate Basics launched and I...
La Roche Posay Toleriane Eye Contour

La Roche Posay Toleriane Eye Contour

I have raved about the La Roche Posay Toleriane Ultra Eye Contour for months now so I thought it was about time I dedicated an entire blog post to this super product. This product has genuinely changed my eye area, for the better. I first discovered this gem last year when I developed an irritation...
