Mini Boots Haul

image

Hi everyone

so …. I did some splurging and I thought would share , I was totally only meant to be buying one thing on boots.ie , but decided that I needed a little bit more haha , it is quite a small haul but it all amounted to around 60ish euro so I suppose in a way … its not really!

The first thing I picked up and what was my soul mission to get was the Benefit Triple Performing Moisturiser  THIS MOISTURISER! Wow! I got a little sample of this product about a month ago and had been using it every day and found myself not really reaching for my other moistursier, so I thought I needed to get the full sized botttle when my little sample one ran out. This product cost €33.50

The next thing I picked up was the NYX Matte Liquid Liner I was in dire need of a new liquid liner as my gel one was on its last legs and I wanted to revert back to liquid since the makeup course I will be doing only focuses on liquid and I thought I may aswell get as much practice in as possible before it starts and try to train myself back into the liquid liner ways haha! This product cost €7.75

I needed to get a new concealer so I just picked up my holy grail Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer again because it literally gives off a highend finish at a drugstore price point , this concealer is the only concealer that I have actually repurchased because it was that good and its also a beauty community favourite so you’d be a bit silly not to try it at least once! This product was the cheapest coming in at €5.79

The last product I bought was the L’oreal Lumi Magique Primer I’m on a huge primer binge these past few weeks , and I needed to try this out ever since I heard it was meant to be a cheaper alternative to Mac Strobe Cream , I think under foundation this will really give me that ” glow from within” look that I absolutely adore! this product was €14.99

So my grand total spending was 61.99 which … sorta makes me feel a little sick inside to think thats what I spent but I suppose I can talk myself around and justify the fact that I NEEDED these products haha .

Have any of your tried these products? what were your thoughts , I would love to hear them below in the comments

Review: Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Lip – Lacquer

image (19)

I’ve never been the type of person to get into glosses , I always leaned more towards a lipstick , and If I wanted to get a little bit of a shine I usually made sure that the lipstick wasn’t matte. I decided a few weeks back to step out of my comfort zone and try something different. I picked up the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker lip gloss in the colour Charm Offensive, and have been absolutely adoring it since.

The Colour is a gorgeous warm toned pink with a hint of mauve running through it too. The colour is what drew me into it in the first place , I adore these colours as everyday looks , and decided instead of getting a really intense shimmery lip gloss that I would go for this as I’m sure I’ll get a lot of wear out of it.

The Pigmentation is absolutely outstanding for a lip gloss , I was always turned away by the pigments of other glosses because they wouldn’t stay on my lips  and never lived up to the colour in the tube. With one swatch this lip gloss will cover your entire lips.( please excuse my very pale hand haha I really need to throw some tan on)

The Smell is quite sweet , so if you aren’t overly excited over sweet-smelling lip products this isn’t going to be the one for you , in my opinion this isn’t too overwhelming and actually smells quite nice and yummy to me.

The Texture is quite thick and glossy , it can be quite sticky but you just need to know when to stop putting a lot on. I only do one application and I’m good to go , there’s no heavy gloopy feeling to this lip gloss that I find I get with a few glosses in my collection.

Overall I’m so so pleased with this product , it really makes me want to buy in more of them due to their formulation and colour payoff , this lip gloss last around 2ish hours on me , but I tend to lick my lips a lot  when I have lipgloss on because I’m not very used to it. I would say the lipgloss is very long wearing if you tend not to lick your lips a lot haha!

I hope you enjoyed this post, do you have this product? I would love to know your thoughts down below , if you have any questions feel free to also leave them down below in the comments.

My Current Beauty Wish List ♡

beauty wish lsit

Hi everyone!

So I thought I would do another beauty wish list, I had wrote one before but forgot to carry on doing it as there was nothing that I felt that I REALLY needed. I have quite a bit I want to pick up this time so I thought I would share it with you all. I enjoy reading these types of blogs  cause it opens me  up to more products that I have never tried or heard of before.

morphe 35o palette

First on my list is the Morphe 35O palette. This palette is like a god! I’ve watched multiple youtube videos on it like swatches and first impressions, and I just fell in love. I am a warm neutral sort of gal so when it comes down to browns , oranges , rusty colours I’m all over it! I first seen this palette when Jaclyn Hill put it up on her snapchat and just died right on the spot. I NEED this in my life.

pippa palette blank cosmetics

Second on the list Pippa palette by Blank Cosmetics . Blank Cosmetics teamed up with Pippa O’Connor to create this dreamy palette, again it has all my colours that I love and wear  on a day to day basis and when I seen Chloe Boucher recreate a look with it I needed it pronto! it also contains a blush a  bronzer/contour colour and a highlighter which is the perfect palette to travel with since you have such a versatile combination in it!

angels on bare skin

Third on my list is the Lush’s , Angels on bare skin cleanser, I seen so many people  on youtube rave about this and how great it feels on their skin and how moisturizing it made their skin feel even before applying their moisturizer! I love changing up my cleansers time to time to see how each one will hopefully improve my skin.

champagne pop beeca

The last product on my list that I really really want is the most talked about highlighter right now … you guessed it ” champagne pop” by Becca Cosmetics in collaboration with Jaclyn Hill. I heard that this highlighter is amazing for fair skinned girls and that it just gives you that beautiful sought after glow. I’ve seen swatches ,demos and hauls and I just need this baby in my life.

so thats all the products on my beauty wish list as of now. I tend to change my mind a lot but these 4 products have been a a massive WANT for me in my head for ages. Have any of you tried these products? let me know what you thought of them in the comments below I would love to hear from you.

Thanks so much for reading guys , you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram to keep up to date with me when I don’t blog
