Q&A

I haven't done a Q&A this year. So I asked on Twitter etc if you had any questions that you wanted to ask me.
What inspired you and what made you want to start your own blog? I started getting into makeup when I was around 13 years old. I used to go through my Mam's makeup bag and play with her makeup. Since then it's something I have always loved. I then discovered YouTube and the makeup community on there. Who can remember lollipop26, JuicyStar07? I was fascinated by watching them and learnt a lot of makeup techniques. I watched YouTube and read blogs for years before I decided to create my own. I decided to start blogging as I got a lot of people tweeting me on Twitter that I should set one up. As they were interested to know my thoughts on certain products, what I recommend, how I create certain looks etc.I also wanted my own little space to talk about the makeup I'm currently loving, products that I dislike etc. I never get bored talking about makeup and having …

Rimmel: Volume Shake mascara review

A few weeks ago I was kindly sent this Rimmel mascara to review*. When it comes to mascara's I am fussy as I have really sensitive eyes. That's why I like to use a mascara for a while before I review it on my blog. Mascara's can also change within a few weeks of use ( you shouldn't keep your mascara longer than 3 months)
The mascara is unique and first to market patented shaker system. What this means is when the mascara starts getting older and drying out more, you simply shake to refresh. You can do this as many times as you want. As the mascara does come with a shaker system it means it is heavier (compared to a regular mascara).
My Thoughts
The packaging is a dark grey with gold writing on. I personally like this as the gold makes it look a lot more expensive. The weight of this mascara doesn't bother me and I doubt it will bother many other people.
The wand is a medium sized wand, I personally don't mind these type of mascara wands. The wand creates a volum…

How to perfect your blowdry at home ft Arconic and Envy Professionals

For the past week or so I have been trying out Envy Professionals: Style Hero, Super oil and brush*. My hair is quite dry, thin and I have split ends. This is my own fault as I have bleached my hair for years. I was also sent the Arconic curved paddle brush, ideal for blow-drying your hair at home for salon results. Envy Professionals hair care range is designed to suit whatever hair type you have. Whether you want to add shine to your hair, more volume etc Envy Professionals has you covered.

Arconic curved paddle brush This brush is designed for medium to long hair, because of it's size it allows you to gather large sections of hair. This makes blow drying your hair a lot faster with a professional finish. I find this brush really easy to use and I have plenty of control when using it. I clip sections of my hair up. Then I use this brush (with the hair dryer) to dry my hair. This brush creates a smooth and st…

Lisa Blur lipsticks review

Lisa Blur* is a brand I have never heard of before until I was given the chance to pick two products from the website to review. I decided to pick two lipsticks (different finishes) as I am a huge lipstick fan. I love buying and trying out lots of lipsticks, as I am fussy.
About Lisa Blur Created for people with a passion for makeup Makeup is both an art and lifestyle choice Easy to apply and long lasting products Designed for luxury and practicality
The Lipsticks Left: Mirange (Satin) Right: Galaxy (Matte)
These are the two shades that I decided to pick. If you have followed me for a while you will know that I love pink lipsticks. Mirange is the perfect pink shade for the summer. I also wanted to try a coral lipstick so I went with Galaxy. As you can see from the swatches above (one swipe) both lipsticks are highly pigmented.
The packaging is a classic black that's easy enough to fit in any bag. These feel like a 'high end' lipstick. In terms of packaging and quality wise.
