Magic Mini Makeup

Magic Mini Makeup

  That alliteration though. Over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed that my most used and most loved makeup items are, well, teeny. A lot of brands sell smaller versions of their most popular products, while some full-sized items are just pretty small. Sure they […]

Reviewing my DIY Penneys Eyeshadow Palette

Reviewing my DIY Penneys Eyeshadow Palette

    Penneys has spent the past year and a bit creating and expanding their very own makeup range. There are, of course, some blatant copies (hello, Urban Decay and Kylie Cosmetics); nevertheless, the stock gets scooped up fast. Kudos where kudos is due, they […]

Ranking All of my Mascaras

Ranking All of my Mascaras

Anyone else have far too many mascaras? Just me? Well, no judgement from your ivory tower please, I just really like mascara ok. Over the past few months, I have been testing them out individually to determine which would wind up as my favourites. I […]

Do I Love ‘Love You So Mochi?’

Do I Love ‘Love You So Mochi?’

I am a sucker for weird concepts, even if that concept is mostly impractical. Enter Nyx with their Love You So Mochi eyeshadow palettes, available in 2 colour themes: Sleek and Chic (fairly neutral) and Electric Pastels (brights). I actually bought this in early January from […]

An Emotional Review of Huda Beauty’s Desert Dusk Palette

An Emotional Review of Huda Beauty’s Desert Dusk Palette

Oh, Huda. Who hurt you? Was it me? I feel that’s mostly unlikely as we don’t know each other, but it’s hard not to take how disappointing this palette is personally. I know a lot of people have this palette, love it, and will likely […]

The Worst and Worst of elf

The Worst and Worst of elf

  No, it’s not a typo. My experience with elf products has been regretful to say the least. I was so excited when I finally had access to elf in my hometown of Galway. Sure, it’s been available in Superdrug online for a while, but […]

Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Review

Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Review

  We were inundated with new releases this year from low to high-end brands. It seemed like a week didn’t pass without a new eyeshadow palette coming out that dominated social media, with every blogger, influencer and everyone in-between sharing their looks and swatches on […]

Inglot YSM Cream Foundation Review

Inglot YSM Cream Foundation Review

You know how it goes. You pop into Inglot for something (bronzer), and leave with more than you intended to buy (bronzer and foundation). I’ve been wearing MAC Studio Fix for a while now and even though I do like it, it’s a bit heavy […]

Liquid Lipsticks: Hits and (Mostly) Misses

Liquid Lipsticks: Hits and (Mostly) Misses

  *Steps on soapbox* When did we as a society decide that dry, uncomfortable lips were something we paid money for? Is it really imperative that we have a type of lipstick that has the staying power to last 12 hours? Is it that much […]

Have my TK Maxx beauty products expired?

Have my TK Maxx beauty products expired?

Let me preface this entire post with this: yikes.  I noticed a few people on Youtube discussing sites on which you can enter the brand and batch code of a makeup product, and it will tell you the date of that product’s manufacture, and whether […]
