The Charlotte Tilbury Box

Hey Guys,

For Christmas I got one of the best surprises. Charlotte Tilbury make-up all wrap up in a cute little box. 

 Inside this little box included 3 pieces of magic. Charlotte's Full Fat Lashes, The Vintage Vamp eye-shadow quad as well as her rock 'N' kohl eye-liner pencil. All the pieces are beautiful packaged and have the same matching maroon/deep brown colour.

Full Fat Lashes

Since I got this set during Christmas, I haven't used any other mascara. It's perfect. With this set it came in the colour glossy black, which works great as a natural eyelash shade. It longates the lashes and makes the eyes look fuller. The britsles are soft which is great for separating the lashes instead of making them look too spidery.

The Vintage Vamp Quad

Can I just say this is the most beautiful set of colours ever. The maroons work perfectly with the golds and pinks so there is no need to use any other palettes with it. What I think works best about this particular quad is that you can easily go from day to night just by adding 1 or 2 more shades to your look. Maroons are my go to colour at the moment and with these very blendable colours you couldn't ask for a better gift.

Rock 'N' Kohl Eye-liner

This ever so soft eye-liner pencil is perfect for finishing of whatever look you create, whether it be soft and sultry or a deep smoky look. I received the shade Barbarella Brown. If the deep black eye-liner look is not your thing this will work great. It can be used on eyelids and blended to give the eyes a little pop or just used on the bottom of the eye for something more subtle.

All in all you can perfect either a soft look or a deep smoky look using just the 3 of the products. I am so in love with all them and if anyone is thinking of purchasing any Charlotte Tilbury products you need to do it. They are worth every penny. 

You can purchase the products from a range of stores of from Charlotte's website

Have you tried any Charlotte Tilbury products?

Moroccan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner

Hi Guys ,

Having a Dad that's a hairdresser can come in handy sometimes especially when it comes to getting some great shampoos at a great price. Lately I have been using the Moroccan Oil Shampoo and conditioner and instantly fell in love. As soon as I used it my hair was super soft and could tell it would work out well with damaged hair.

This pair is good for repairing and rescuing damaged hair which is perfect for myself as my hair is naturally dry and getting highlights every six weeks doesn't help. (whoops) 

Both the shampoo and Conditioner are packed with Argan oil as well as keratin which makes hair look instantly shiny and less dry. If you have coloured hair and get worried about shampoos washing that out, you don't need to worry as both are colour safe making it great for most hair types. 

For the best results you should add their Moroccan Oil treatment as well as their repair hair mask. I haven't used those products myself but let me know if you have down below. 

The smell of these are so fresh and last for so long. Hair feels fresh for so long and you can see the best results with continued use. 

Have you used any of Moroccan Oil's products?

Nip and Fab Cleansers

Hi Guys,

Recently I purchased some Nip and Fab cleansing products which I thought I would review. These have been on my wishlist for so long and just after Christmas I couldn't help but go on a bit of a Nip and Fab shopping spree.

The first item I purchased was the Glycolic Scrub Fix. This is great if your skin is feeling a dull and tired and want to give it a bit of a pick me up. It also has a citrus scent which makes it even better.  After this skin instantly feels refreshed and looks that bit brighter. I use the scrub twice a week to keep skin fresh. The Glycolic Scrub can be purchased for €12.95

Secondly was Nip and Fab's Deep Cleansing Fix.  This is my favourite product and use it everyday. It is great for removing make-up that has been on all day. To get a deeper clean I use this with my no.7 version of the clarisonic. It has drops of tea tree oil within it leaving it with a scent that reminds me of vicks. (In a good way! ha) I find it can be a bit thick but used in small amounts it is perfect. It is available for €9.95. 

The last cleansing product I got was the Glycolic Cleansing Fix. This is one that I would use the least but is great when skin looks a little dull in the morning and you want to get rid of the bacteria that has built up on your face over night. Gels wouldn't be my favourite thing to use on my face but for a morning clean this suits fine. There is no distinct smell off this product which sometimes is nice when just wanting to wake your skin up. The Cleansing fix can be purchased for €9.95. 

My Favourite thing about these products is that they are so affordable but give a feeling like you have bought some high end products. If you want to try any Nip and Fab products they can be purchased from local pharmacies such as Sam McCauleys and Superdrug as well as the Nip and Fab website

Ikea Wishlist

Hey Guys,

Home-ware shopping is one of my favourite things. I could go to Ikea/TK Maxx or any homestore shop and just wander around for hours without getting bored. You can always find the most interesting items when browsing around these stores.

Here are some of my favourite bits from Ikea at the minute

Alex 9 drawer unit - To be fair pretty much anyone who is obsessed with beauty would have one of these. You would never ever be stuck for space again and could get rid of any junk that is lying around. 

Flowers - Artificial flowers are the greatest way to decorate a house. They may not have the scent that real flowers bring but its less mess and don't have to worry about the look fading. 

Mirror - Mirrors are a great way to make rooms look bigger as well as adding that something extra to a space. I find the best place would be above a fireplace in a sitting room as its a really simple way to decorate. 

Candles - This one is for those evenings when all you want to do is relax. Nothing better than sitting down/having a relaxing bath and lighting some candles. Perfect way to shut off for the night and take some time to yourself. 

Holders - I am obsessed with these holders, A while ago I got ones just like these in Penneys/Primark. As well as adding something cute to your room, it is also great for storing makeup brushes. 

Bedding - Even though they say you shouldn't have colourful bedding as it can be distraccting when trying to sleep, I find it very hard to stay away from it. These ones are super cute and a great way to perk up any bedroom. 

Is there anything from ikea you are loving at the minute?

Makeup Expiry Dates

Hey Guys,

Today's post is going to be a short and sweet one. When it comes to make up I am the biggest hoarder. Things are stacked up in my makeup case for months and probably even over a year. Sometimes it's hard to throw out something that you think 'yeah I might actually use that again' when in reality you probably never will.

Well make up just like food and so one actually has an expiry date. Keeping these products probably does more harm to your skin and takes up room for all that new make up you could have!

Down below I have listed the main makeup items along with their expiry dates. So while reading this grab your make-up kit and start discarding of anything you have been holding onto a little to long.

1 – 2 Years
2 years
1-2 years
Powders & Blushes
2 years
3 months
Up to 3 years
Nail Varnish
1 year

Do you clean your makeup kit out this often?

The Best Blogging Apps

Hi Guys,

If you have a blog it is very important to keep yourself organised if your serious about it becoming something great. The best way to do this is to schedule. There is so many great ways to do this and as most of us are mad into social media these days I thought I would go through some apps you should have on your phone when your out and about.

Blogger/ Wordpress

Depending on which publishing tool you use its important to keep either app on your phone. This way if you have any post ideas or scheduled posts and need to do a quick update you can simply do so from your phone.


A handy one to have as you can catch up on your favourite blogs while on the go. You can also check up on any new followers or find great new blogs.


If you tend to take photos from your phone sometimes it's just handy to fix them up on the phone itself. Saves the effort of downloading them to your laptop to fix them up. I use photoshop express but there are so many different options on the app stores.

Social Media

This includes the likes of twitter and instagram. This helps you keep in contact with other bloggers and lets those bloggers keep up to date with your latest posts and pictures.


You can easily use the notepad you have automatically on your phone or you can pick from the many options the app store provides. This is one of the most important in my eyes as you could get an idea at any time of the day and you know you'll just be able to jot it down straight away.

What apps do you think are important for bloggers?

The Beauty Deli Make up Brushes

Hi Guys,

Recently when flicking through Marissa Carters Snapchat I heard her talking about The Beauty Deli. She was using one of there flawless foundation brushes and of course I had to check it out.

So The Beauty Deli are an Irish company which deal with beauty and make up essentials. They range from makeup brushes, pamper products palettes and many more. I made a couple of purchases and received them so quickly which even I was surprised at.

My Purchases:

Contour Brush 

This brush is perfect for getting that defined line under your cheek bone. The brush itself is super soft and straight that it really brings out your contoured look. I know some people are not that interested in having the strong contour line so if you like this brush but want to make it less sharp just blend it out with a powder brush

Flawless Foundation Brush

To be fair I was mostly interested in this product just because it looks so different than any brushes I have used before. This brush is perfect if you are into using cream contours as it really blends all the colours together making your skin look as flawless as ever. I find it is also good for blending in concealers under the eyes as the brush is small enough to reach the full area.

Flat Head Kabuki Brush

Out of all the brushes I purchased this is by far my favourite and the one I was most excited about. This brush is perfect for buffing foundation into the skin giving it a super flawless finish. The brush is oh so soft and because of its flat head is great for giving that full coverage look.

If you are thinking of making a purchase or interested to see what other products The Beauty Deli have you can like visit their website or like them on facebook

Blank Canvas Master Series Palette One

Hey Guys,

First I'd like to start of by saying Happy New Year! I can't believe it's 2016 already. Time flies when your having fun eh?

For the first post of 2016 I'm going to be raving about Blank Canvas's Master Series Palette. When I opened this first all I could notice was how beautiful both the packaging and the colours were. Within the palette there is 12 colours starting with a pale cream called lily and ending with a deep brown/purple shade called corruption.

Along with the 12 shades you also get a doubled sided eye-shadow brush. I adore getting brushes and little treats when getting palettes and other beauty bits because it really adds to the product. One side of the brush is a flat end (E40) which is great for getting colours to stick to the eyelids while the tapered end (E41) is great for blending the colours seamlessly together. 

The quality of these colours are amazing as they are so pigmented when applied and blend so easily with very minimum fallout. If warm/cool colours are for you then this palette is right up your street. 

The palette works out at around €34.95 and can be purchased from Blank Canvas or Cloud 10 beauty. 

Have you tried the Master Series Palette One?
