BRYT Skincare – Calm Serum Review

It was my first time trying anything from the Bryt skincare range and I had received this Calm Serum to try out for myself.

On first impressions I thought the packaging was really different and brightly coloured which I loved with a chrome lid looking quite expensive! The pump applicator was of the sturdy kind and not cheap and flimsy. The product inside (The most important part) was on the thicker end of consistency when pumped out and when spread on the face , 1 pump went quite far! When applicated it feels so smooth and sleek almost a mixture of a silicone based primer and a face moisturiser which I really liked. As it dries in it doesn’t make you feel sticky or clammy, it feels, again like a primer in the way it doesn’t make your face wet but givestgat perfect canvas for applying your make up.

The product details

You can purchase your Calm Serum Here for €24.50 which gives you 30g size bottle. The product is 98% natural and vegan which is a great plus while also being cruelty free 🙂  The benefits are that your skin is balanced and natural equilibrium rediscovered. It’s suitable for combination and oily skin.

I personally used mine on myself and my clients as a primer before applying make up 🙂

Lots of love, peace & happiness

Catrice High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder & Penny’s P.s Pro Foundation Review

I picked these both in Penny’s on one of my “Oh babe I just need to run in here and get socks that’s it” and come out with a bag full of goodies 😂! I literally should be barred from penny’s like I just can’t help myself, I get to the till and when the cashier says the total I’m like “ugh oh” 🙈!

Anyways I had read an article about this catrice highlighter a week or so before I bought it, claiming that it was amazing and sold out almost instantly so if you see it basically get it😂 that was enough telling for me… I had to pick it up and see for myself and you all if it was REALLY worth all the hype! So it cost €5.50 first of all which lets be fair, is an amazing price especially when it’s quite a big pan …. I was expecting it to be smaller so that was the first thumbs up! It’s so highly pigmented which is another big plus… For me the more pigment the better because I LOVE highlight on the face and you can use it in so many ways to give that gorgeous dewy look 😍 or become a disco ball lol whatever look your going for! The texture is so creamy it’s just perfect and glides so effortlessly onto the skin!  It’s a perfect I between shade of white and champagne 😍 I swatched it below so you can see for yourself before you commit to the buy 😉 I would defiantly re purchase this product 👌🏻

Next I picked up two foundations from penny’s, one from the P.s Pro range and the other from the ordinary penny’s range. So today I tested out the P.s Pro foundation which was €6…. Now for a foundation that’s cheap but I don’t know wether it’s just in my head that everything is so much cheaper in penny’s or what but I was thinking “jeez €6 for their foundation”… I really wanted to try it tough so I said feck it I’ll go all out 😂! I am super pale so I picked up the shade “porcelain” more often then none the shade even when it’s the lightest available is still too dark for my actual “Porcelain skin” thanks to being an Irish Redhead🙈! To my Suprise when I applied the foundation I was like “wow it actually matches perfectly” now that’s a first! The coverage was medium…it blended so beautifully without being cakes or too light… You could see a few of my freckles but it covered all blemishes and the majority of those freckles on my face 🙂 My skin type is combination lol which I also refer to as goldie locks….not too dry…not too oily 😂 so I found it perfect on my skin type but I think if you had really dry skin I would definitely moisturise and add some liquid highlighter in with it so it didn’t go cakey! I wore it all day and went to the cinema that night with the girls to see the Blair Witch Project….which consists of my with my hands over my face and even after that it looked perfect so great staying power ! Again I would defiantly pick up this foundation again and maybe in a darker shade for wearing tan or going out that’s how much I like it ❤️

Review: Lidl Macadamia Oil Hair Care Range

Hey Dawls 💋

Lidl Ireland are just excelling on every angle of the beauty range there banging out at the moment! I’m currently saving mad and so I have a budget every week but the prices they have for these new beauty products are just amazing and too hard to resist! I picked up all of the hair care Macadamia Oil range just to try out and review for you all before you part with your money 😉  I got the Shampoo, Conditioner, Bb Cream and Hair Oil Serum as you can see in the photo below 🙂

image.jpg

For the 4 products it all came to under €12! If that’s not a bargain then I don’t know what is! I’ve used them all twice a week for 5 weeks, the Shampoo and Conditioner are now gone (and I use ALOT OF PRODUCT) and it seems I haven’t even made a dent in the Bb cream & Hair Oil Serum! I find that because of the oil in each product my hair is a lot easier to tame and goes more curly now then frizzy which is a big thumbs up in my book! My hair feels really really nice as of I’ve been applying treatments when I haven’t so that must be down to the be cream and oil 😍 My hair is thick , a bit dry and quite unruly so I use 3 pumps of the Bb Cream and 4-5 of the oil depending and I massage it all over! I would Definetly recommend if you find your hair is already oily or quite thin, not to apply this much product and to just keep it to the ends of your hair to avoid any extra oiliness on top 🙂 I use them while my hair is damp right after my shower but I also use the oil before or after straightening my dry hair if I want a shine or some extra softness 🙂

Heres my hair right after using all of the products 🙂 It may still look fuzzy to some but my hair is so thick when it’s fuzzy I look like Mufasa from the lion king so my hair below is actually so tame compared😂!

My Slimming World Week 3

Week three done & dusted 🙂 I must say I found it hard this week to stop picking on sweets like chocolate and crisps, especially at night! But I tried my best and so the last two days before my weigh in I stuck to the SP diet with slimming world. This basically is just when you only eat your free foods that have either S (speed) or P (protein) along with 1 HEA & 2 HEB and of course you still have 15 syns to use if you like 🙂 they say to do the SP Diet once or twice a week if you feel you need a boost on your weight loss or if you’ve been bold and need to make up for it lol like me!

image

I’ve changed my weigh in day from Wednesday to Saturday because I’ve been thinking… When I weigh in on Saturday, if I want to have a treat or a drink atleast I can have it that night which is the weekend and I have the rest of the week then to do damage control lol and be good to reach my weekly goals 🙂 so I weighed in Saturday gone and I was hoping to loose 4 pounds but I lost 3, which I’m happy with 🙂 it’s one pound of my goal for the week but sure atleast I’m loosing👌🏻 My overall goal is to loose 50 pounds which I know sounds a lot but thats like my dream goal I guess you could call it, I might Aswel go hard or go home, that breaks down to 3 and a half stone! I’m currently down 7.5 pounds now so I have 42.5 pounds left to go!

image

Now for this weeks goal I’m aiming again for a 4 pound loss 👌🏻 fingers crossed I make it this time!

Starting a New Make-Up Bag Recommendations

Hey Dawls ❤️

So one of my Clients has asked for recommendations on starting a new make up bag! So here are mine!

Okay so to start off you need a make up bag, and if your looking for something cute and a great price then look no further than pennys! They have so many designs your bound to find one you love!

Next would be your foundation. My absolute faves for foundation have to be Estée Lauder double wear €37 and Inglot hd matte foundation €31! There’s amazing coverage in both of these and they last ages!!

Next products would be your powders, such as you setting powder, bronzer, highlighter and blush! For a setting powder I would recommend Rimmel stay 25 hour powder to set your foundation it’s €8.99. Bronzer I would recommend hoola from benefit €30 , w7 bronzer €3.50, or sun shimmer bronzer €9.49! Blush I absolutely LOVE inglots number 28 blush for €12.

For your eyebrows and eyeliner I would most definitely recommend Inglots gel eyeliners there €15 and will last you soo long! I use no. 90 for my brows and I use no. 77 for my eyeliner👌 they have amazing staying power and so they will not budge once you’ve applied them!

So that’s your foundation, setting powder, bronzer, blusher, highlighter, brows and eyeliner sorted👌 there the most important pieces! The rest such as lipstick, mascara, eyeshadows you don’t need to shell out on… If you wanted to thou Id recommend MAC for lipsticks as I find them the best, for eyeshadows I love inglots freedom system were you buy the palette and can choose your colours and add or change as much as you like, Mac shadows are amazing and also make up geek👌! For mascara I tend to go for Rimmel ❤️

Anymore questions do not hesitate to ask ❤️

Being A Make-Up Junkie

Hey dawls ❤️

image

My name is Nichole and im addicted to make-up of all shapes and sizes! I love to experiment new looks and trends and the list is just endless with what you can achieve using make-up😍 When passing a nearby make-up counter or shop I tend to shut my eyes super tight just to avoid anything that would no doubt lure me in to purchase ALOT🙈  My list of products that I want and NEED in my life is just endless! Unlike a lot of others with this similar problem, I actually have an excuse… I’m a make-up artist and so its in my job description to love make up 😍 SWEEEET👌 My boyfriend asks ‘Babe what would you like for your Birthday or Christmas Present’ my reply you ask? Ummmmm of course MAKE-UP 😂

image

Now I am faced with a huge problem… I’m heading to vegas with spending money saved just for shopping 😍 and all I can think about is bringing home a whole suitcase filled to the absolute brim with new foundations, concealers, eyeshadows, highlighters and lipsticks 🙈  I think this faith is inevitable to be honest… I cannot wait to play with all my new make up like a child on Christmas day opening new packaging, swiping and testing colours…. Uhhh it actually gives me butterflies of excitement 😍 Is that wierd lol? Are there fellow make-up junkies out there who feel just like this… Or am I a Lone Ranger in this department…. If so, oh well….more make-up for me 😂👌

Anyways, wish me luck on my voyage to newer, dazzling make up galore🙌 I will keep you all updated with photos of course 😉 and snapchat will be snapped to death 😂 my username is @Colliiiee

My Review on Tantastic Liquid Tan

 Hey Dawls💜

Today’s blog post is all about tan! I received This liquid ran and mitt from Tantastic in a goody bag at the Cork Bloggers Event! I couldn’t wait to try it out because I’ve never actually used this brand of tan before!

image

Before I applied this tan I followed the instructions which indicted to have your shower, any waxing or shaving done at least 24 hours before applying it! Give you skin a moisturize especially around dry skin problem areas such as knees, elbows and ankle where you could get tan build up! When I was applying it I also used there mitt! The tan as it says on the bottle is liquid so if your used to a more creamy or mousse texture then be warned to be carefull lol because it’s very runny, so make sure to keep the bottle close to the mitt when pouring it out to avoid any spillage and then squeeze the mitt so it will soak it in before applying to the skin!

I applied it all over my body just so I could give the best review! It turned out amazing on me! No streaks what so ever and a beautiful colour 😍! The best about the liquid tan is that you can build up the colour if you want it to be darker which is great because not everyone wants the same shade of tan👌! It’s rare for tan not to go streaky or patchy on me because I am so pale! So it is a lot harder because to build up the colour is a lot harder when you don’t have a dark base! The tan is fading amazing without going dirty looking and I have to say I think this is the best tan that I’ve come across so far! When you apply it you will see the colour guard so that you know were you’ve put it! I started building it and I loved the way the colour came out and as the night went on it began getting darker as it developed and I was in love with the shade 😍 I would say it takes roughly 4 hours to develop 👌

Its €20 for the Liquid tan and its €5 for the tanning mitt which worked perfectly for me 🙂 You can get these online on there site Here with free postage to the uk and Ireland 🙂

Heres my before & after without any filter!

image

I will 100% be picking up more of this tan and I will also be trying out some of the other products such as the glitter spray for your body 😍!

Lots Of Love,
