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 ❤️

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 ❤️

Girls foolproof gift ideas 2015

Hey Dawls ❤️

Can you believe Christmas is already only 1 month away! It’s just crazy how the time flies! I think once the summer is over then Christmas is on top of you straight away, it comes so fast! So today I just wanted to share with you all my gift Wishlist for this Christmas, as you know sometimes it’s hard for boyfriends, friends or family to choose what to actually get you as a gift… Something that your heart desires and you will be absolutely weak for 😉  im sure a lot of girls will actually agree with my Wishlist and use it as there own because I’m a real girly girl and so are the gifts I have my eye on 😉

  1. imageimage

This beauty of a palette is currently on sale now at all Inglot stores worldwide 😍 it’s a bit steep I think personally at €75 but it’s just beautiful and the inglot products, especially there eyeshadows and stardusts are AMAZING! Okay the stardusts are just ugh they actually give me shivers of happiness 😂 if that even makes sense! They are a must for any girl who loves glitter or makeup ❤️ There €16 each!

2.

M.A.C Lipsticks in my book, have got to be one of the best lipsticks around for shades and lasting power👊! Before you buy any thou make sure to take notice of the lip colour the person your buying for tends to go for… Or else just ask! I’m sure they would be delighted knowing there getting a Mac lippy for Xmas 😍 They are €20 each! If you maybe wanted to extend this gift then you could splash out on a lip liner and lip gloss to match !

3.

Oh you would be getting it soooo right if you picked up literally ANY of these palettes for the mam, sister, aunty or girlfriend in your life lol! Even if I had the same palette I got gifted Id still be weak because I know Id use it! But maybe to be on the safe side for all these tips, get a girl to suss out the girl your buying for so it doesn’t seem so suspicious coming from you 😂 just so you get them something they don’t have already ! These palettes range from €41-46❤️

4.

Gift cards !!! I know a lot of people don’t like getting gift cards for people because they seem in personal but I personally LOVE gift cards lol! You can buy whatever you want and I always seem to forget that I have them so I et an even bigger suprise when I remember lol it’s great! Best ones to purchase in my opinion would be boots, pennys, ikea and any place she visits regularly that you know she would get the use from such as her hairdressers or beauticians or faveourite clothing shop 🙂

Choose any of these and im sure the women in your life will be absolutely delighted with you ❤️ We all better get cracking with our pressies because it’s going to be here now before we know it ⛄️❄️

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 Rimmels New Match Perfection Foundation

Hey dawls ❤️

The other day I picked up some goodies from good old fashioned boots lol! Boots is turning into another penny’s store for me lol 🙈 that’s not a good thing! They had on some fantastic offers you just cannot refuse! 2 for €12 on all Rimmel , 2 for €20 on Revlon and buy 1 get the second half price on the Real Technique Brushes ! This is all the stuff I picked up which I had posted on my snapchat , my username is Colliiiee

image

So anyways back to why I am even writing this post lol I wanted to try out the new Rimmel foundation for myself because to be honest I’ve heard both great and terrible reviews on it and so I wanted to test it out for you all so you would have an idea before committing to the purchase 🙂 It’s €9.99 for the foundation and €7.99 for the concealer.

I loved the consistancy of the foundation and found as it says on the bottle lol it blended perfectly into my skin with ease! I thought I would love the concealer a lot more though because of the tube and applicator being a brush but hmmm not so much. I just found the tube to be sort of hard to squirt out and I just find there isn’t much product in it, but I’ll keep using it and update you all on a later blog. The foundation lasted all day and night and didn’t go at all patchy or faded anywhere on my skin 👍! So for right now I would totally recommend the foundation but I wouldn’t rave about the concealer because for me it wasn’t anything special tbh ❤️

Heres a photo of the foundation & concealer on me ❤️
